Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Agreed.
We find common ground.

Now if we could just agree that women should be left to make our own medical decisions, we might be getting somewhere.

I agree with that as well. My only disagreement is with being forced to pay for your choices.

I would have to guess that you would also demand that every store be forced to sell mad dog as well so you won't have to waddle any farther than needed.

One cannot forgive a president of the USA and those Americans who voted him...USA of all countries...for being so INCOMPETENT.
Obama is mindnumbing to those who know that he is an orator, nothing more, like many of his Luo brothers up in Kenya.
Obama is a Luo.
Now that's the kind of BS that will help a conservative win an election.

LMAO

FOX rhetoric lost. Get over it.

How you doing old goober. I can always tell you're back on Topix even before I get to your post because the Judge-its numbers go into the teens with your multiple sign-ins.
So you're distancing yourself from Romney as of Nov 7?? Something tells me an insecure moron like you that signs in under multiple avatars just to stroke himself would be riding the Romney train today if he would have won.
Interesting that you call me an idiot for supporting Obama and you threw your vote in the shitter for Gary Johnson. How did that work for you?
Hehehe
Hehe...

Clueless old goober. Want some whine with that cheese? Didn't you whine that someone was deleting your judgeits? That is not possible, moron.

Last time, you also whined to the moderator like a little baby libtard. What a tough guy! Shoot & kills defensless animanls but whines to the mod about someone picking on you!

Hehe...

Now go complain, little girl (in an old codgers body/whitey).

Republicans Desperately Need a Scandal

Paul Waldman explains why Republicans have gone batshit crazy over Benghazi:...

Yep. They're just convinced that Obama runs a gang of Chicago thugs who are lying and cheating behind the scenes at every opportunity. It's a foundational story on the tea-party right. Unfortunately, the reality is that whatever else you think of Obama, he's one of the straightest arrows we've had in the White House since....forever. He runs a tight ship organizationally, and on a personal level he's so intolerant of personal peccadilloes that he sometimes seems almost inhuman. It would be astonishing if he could actually avoid a serious scandal for an entire eight-year term, but if anyone can do it, it's probably Obama.

And yes, it's driving Republicans crazy. Even the ones who don't want to impeach him at least want to bring him down to earth a bit. So they latch onto anything they can. It's all starting to seem kind of desperate, but I doubt they're going to let that stop them. After all, it eventually worked against Clinton.

The desperate search for a legitimate Obama scandal

Nixon had Watergate; Reagan had Iran-Contra; Clinton had Lewinsky; Bush had more scandals than he knew what to do with (Plame, US Attorney purge, torture, etc.); and Obama just isn't cooperating in the scandal department. His critics aren't wearing their desperation well.

I'd just add one thing to keep in mind going forward: the boy who cried wolf didn't do himself any favors. For Republicans to scream "Watergate!" and set their hair on fire every time there's even a hint of a controversy that kinda sorta might involve the administration, they're undermining their own credibility.

With this in mind, if/when there's a legitimate scandal involving the Obama White House, and Republicans once again go berserk, there will be plenty of folks who simply roll their eyes, tired of the faux outrage and manufactured controversies that never pan out. They'll say, "No, no, this time there really is a wolf," and many will respond, "We've heard it all before."

FOX news Jonathan Hunt just noted that the Israeli tanks are "obviously armored." Who knew eh?

Shep Smith, sitting in NYC guesses that since Hillary has just arrived and there hasn't been an explosion in at least an hour that peace is eminent in Israel. That fkn Shep is a real genius, just ask the Haitians who kidnapped his azz and then sold it back.

Your observation is probably correct, but prices will recover faster in markets where supply is more limited. New home prices here have been escalating at a significant rate in the last six months, largely because there is a very small supply.
California's always the confounding data point. It amazes me that water hasn't choked their growth completely. When I lived out there Temecula was just starting to develop in earnest. I imagine its wall to wall suburbia in the inland valley nowadays.

What Benghazi Is about: Scandal Envy
Republicans are livid that Obama hasn't had his major scandal yet.
....some Republicans, particularly John McCain and Lindsay Graham, are essentially saying that this horrifying cover-up was quite possibly the greatest crime in the history of the United States government, and if we're going to get to the bottom of it nothing short of a select committee—a "Watergate-style committee," as it is being referred to by reporters—will do. Who knows what it might uncover? Were there CIA whistleblowers whose bodies are now lying at the bottom of the Potomac? Was David Petraeus being blackmailed? Are William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright involved? Did Susan Rice fly to Tripoli, have a steamy liaison with a clone of Ayman al-Zawahiri created in a secret underground laboratory, then go to Benghazi where she personally killed Ambassador Chris Stevens with a hat pin? We won't know unless we spin this out into a multi-week story!
So what's going on here? I can sum it up in two words: scandal envy. Republicans are indescribably frustrated by the fact that Barack Obama, whom they regard as both illegitimate and corrupt, went through an entire term without a major scandal. They tried with "Fast and Furious," but that turned out to be small potatoes. They tried with Solyndra, but that didn't produce the criminality they hoped for either. Obama even managed to dole out three-quarters of a trillion dollars in stimulus money without any graft or double-dealing to be found. Nixon had Watergate, Reagan had Iran-Contra, Clinton had Lewinsky, and Barack Obama has gotten off scott-free. This is making them absolutely livid, and they're going to keep trying to gin up a scandal, even if there's no there there. Benghazi may not be an actual scandal, but it's all they have handy.

I guess four dead Americans is not a Scandal? I guess how you perceive it, that these individuals happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time… just a stroke of bad Luck…Right!! Now Holder is not only incompetent but whatever he’s involve with there are usually dead bodies left behind from Ruby Ridge, Waco, the latest Fast and Furious!! Because Obama’s is President we should just ignore it… Not Cool Asking Questions!!
