Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Something tells me he'll renege; although he might enjoy jail...lotsa 'fresh meat' in there.

Benghazi Is Not A Scandal

Matt Steinglass delivers a reality check:

At the most fundamental level, the reason it is absurd to suspect the existence of a "cover-up" over the Benghazi attack is that such a cover-up could not have had any conceivable goal. Back to the beginning: the underlying accusation about Benghazi is that the Obama administration deliberately mischaracterised the terrorist attack there as having grown out of a spontaneous demonstration because that would be less politically damaging. Such a cover-up would have made no sense because the attack would not have been less politically damaging had it grown out of a spontaneous demonstration. The attack on the Benghazi compound would not have been any less politically difficult for the administration if it had grown out of a riot, nor would any normal voter have expected it to be less politically damaging, nor would any normal campaign strategist have expected any normal voter to have expected it to be less politically damaging.

Translation: you're sane. They're crazy. Remind yourselves of that. At most, it seems to me, this involves a government failure to anticipate this kind of attack in Benghazi and some ass-covering after the fact from those on the ground responsible for such things. The attack was a tragedy. Governments - all the way down to security at consulates - make mistakes, miss things, and suffer the consequences. And the truth is that our intelligence in that region - once completely dependent on Qaddafi and other tyrants - is very weak. It's all electronic and from on high. We need to develop more human intelligence on the ground to guard against these incidents that have always occurred and always will in troubled countries in the midst of revolutions. That's what we need to learn from this.

But that's not the debate the current GOP wants to have. Because they are not actually interested in government so much as in politics. And rather than figure out why they have strayed so far from sanity, and lost the support of an entire generation, they wallow in paranoia and conspiracy.

Where do you get this insane information you post?
You have heard of the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression that occurred in 2008? You do know the stock market lost 60% of value and that 726,000 Americans per MONTH were losing their jobs. Compared to that the US has come a long way back from the near collapse.

Newt Gingrich had harsh words Sunday for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s suggestion that he lost the election because President Barack Obama offered “gifts” to African-Americans, Hispanics, and young voters.

“I just think it’s nuts,” Gingrich said on ABC.“I mean, first of all, it's insulting.”

“The job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can't offer a better future that is believable to more people, we're not going to win,”

Your question displays your total ignorance!
How does rich not paying more than what they pay now, 60%, affects you?
Does making them poorer halos you in anyway? Does scaring them to other countries helps you in any way? if they pay their supposedly "fare share" will you come back for more five years later? Yes you will! That is what you are doing now!
Now let mi enlighten you:
If capital gains is taxed more then investors will stop investing, duh!
And when investors stop investing then there is no more jobs for you to collect taxes to give to your liberal friends and lazy ghetto voters to get Obama phones!
When inheritance taxes goes up then there is less reason to leave inheritance so better to move money over seas on foreign trust funds safe from the government stealing it. Which mean less money here at home, duh!
Your lack of understanding in Capitalism is the problem!
Thanks, for the concise post. Lily wouldn't understand though, to start out 'She doesn't have a pot to pi** in, OR a window to throw it out of'. She 'tries' though.... She voted for Barack Hussein Obama, now all her troubles are solved? She knows the social workers, all of them, by first name. Also knows where every food panty in Palm Beach County and probably Broward County is located. She's livin' the high life now.....
