Barack Obama, our next President

How the ‘Real’ Obama Lost the Election, and the Conservative Media Won

Barack Obama is once again, for better or worse, the president. Like most presidents he has an agenda. Raising taxes on the rich, nominally ending the war in Iraq, shutting down medical marijuana dispensaries, supporting gay marriage when politically expeditious, and so forth. But to hear some on the right tell it, behind the Obama the man is the real Obama, who also has a real agenda. This tends to be more sinister. The lighter version usually has to do with his alleged desire to turn the country into a European-style social democracy. More outlandish charges such as those from disgraced cartoonist Dinesh D’Souza include supposed anti-Americanism, or treasonous support for an emergent “United States of Islam.”

With that kind of villain in mind, it’s not hard to see how much of the conservative movement might be deluded into thinking America had by and large turned against the president over his first term. Enter the dread bubble of epistemic closure, which Conor Friedersdorf and others have already done a great job explaining. The gist is that the Republican Party and conservatives devoted a lot of energy toward propagating the myth of the real Obama and less time making the case for the benefits of conservative governance or the benefits of a free society or even deciding what those things mean. Granted, their case was undercut by the billionaire crony capitalist on the ticket who implemented Obamacare’s prototype, but a purely oppositional message can only carry you so far.

....Conservative media is another one of those factions. If all the misinformation about the real Obama helped cost Romney the election, they’ve earned themselves the privilege of doing the same thing for another for years. Four more years of feeling like insurgents, four more years of agitated donors (if they aren’t turned off by the ineffectiveness of Karl Rove’s machine), and four more years of snarky blog posts about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s hair. It all worked out for them, didn’t it?

Bah, I can't even see any of my neighbors, they could paint their houses purple for all I care and park boats on top of their RV's. It's a free country, you country club Republicans living in your cookie cutter houses want to control everything.

Tell us why.
Rhetorical question. Are we suppose to guess? A US Ambassador in a foreign country. Gosh, what on earth was he doing there? He'd been there for quite some time, correct? People of Libya thought he was a swell guy too, correct?

Here are White House statements concerning Benghazi.

They do not rule out a planned attack but rather say that there no proof yet to state it.

The intel community put out the talking points on this.

So 2 other astronauts and I landed on another planet ruled by gorillas and orangetans. Then I escaped back to Earth and when I landed Earth was also ruled by apes. The moral of the story is there will be plenty of reverse discrimination in our future. And apes don't make effective presidents but dumb primates will vote for them just because they are apes

"Every person who talks and writes about politics gets stuff wrong. I’ve gotten my fair share wrong. But what I think I got most wrong in Campaign 2012 was the damage Mitt Romney’s “47%” remark would do to him.

It may seem obvious, but bear with me.

Mitt Romney was talking off the cuff to a supposedly off the record group of donors and muddled several data points together, ultimately telling the tale of the 47% who won’t vote for him for any reason. He was referencing the 47% who don’t pay taxes and interwove it with a 47% of locked in Obama support. The statement was a mess.

I didn’t think Mitt Romney would be as hurt by the statement as he was because I assumed Romney had misspoken in an off the cuff way. I assumed Romney would clarify that he knew many of those who have government assistance did not actually want the assistance, but needed it. I assumed he’d make the case that he’d help those people get off the government dole and back into work.

In other words, I assumed Romney believed what I believe — many of those people are good people who fell on hard times and are not of the same class of people who will vote for Barack Obama for free stuff. I was absolutely wrong. Romney not only believes completely what he said as he said it, he reinforced it with his post election analysis of his defeat blaming gifts to various classes of people. If that was true, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, Romney had plenty to gift to plenty strapped to the back of marching elephants.

Note to Mitt Romney: really, it’s you, not them. Seriously."

Thin crust, the best, should be served in a pizzeria and hot enough to melt the skin off the roof of ones mouth. The pizzeria should provide an atmosphere, ambiance if you will to encourage regular visits from regular customers over long periods of time, generations if possible.
My favorite thin crust pizza can only be found at JoJo's Original Pizza the pride and joy of the Hashim family who denied franchise opportunities knowing that their recipes wouldn't travel well.
The pizza that those people serve makes you want to get on a plane and go there.
Sounds yummy.

And you're funny!

The US Embassy is in Tripoli, and the American security detail which included G Doherty (SEAL) was in Tripoli. The Ambassador was +/- 400 miles away without any security beyond that of the Blue Mountain Group.

What do you find rhetorical???

The consulate was a cover for a CIA base__is there some part of that that your dumb azz doesn't understand?
