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

What an idiot.
Claiming Obama never had a job & had no experience before becoming President.
Typical uneducated, uninformed right whiner.
Ok here's a question- show me a job where he was in charge of the economic aspect of a business or rather where he was previously educated in economic policy? He has no clue when it comes to fiscal matters, its really just obvious at this point.

I can reminisce about the good old days and what might have been, no 9/11, no need for Afghan War, no Iraq War, a budget surplus, can't I?
I think after about 8 years of Gore we'd be down to just a few trillion in debt, whomever won in 2008 wouldn't have continued the Bush sepnding because it wouldn't have been there, probably no need for a massive stimulis either.
There, you've brought another tear to my eye, you happy now?
Oh really? So how do you account for the persistent relatively high unemployment rate? Or a marked increase in applications for government assistance and unemployment benefits? Perhaps Bush started it but Obama sure is doing a bang-up job of continuing it...

None of that is gonna happen. Obama will be responsible for the 2013 recession.

<quoted text> Ah! Thats what it is huh? Whiteman don't own this president so no more tax breaks for the wealthy. Now you want to spew hate & lies like that helped ya'll in the past. You do remember the election outcome right? You do remember how every poll in the book had romney winning with likely voters, all lies! Even though ya'll republicans/business owners felt the closeness of the election you started lying & actually playing dirty with your own american people. Even though ya'll tried to sabotage the economy & jobs rate%, the jobs rate still rose. And thats with a loss of 500,000 private sector jobs. It takes a leader with a clear vision of how he sees the future. Too good mitt has cataracts& couldn't see the furore right in front his rich face. Bottom line, yea we own putting the president in office & back in office, but we dont own him. Can't say the same for past republican presidents. They were owned by people like you thats why we needed change & we got it.
The poor have been voting democrat for over 50 years and they are still poor, who really are the stupid ones then? I don't know what polls you were looking at but CNN had both candidates in a dead heat up until the election results started coming in. Yes, exactly, government desk jockey jobs are becoming the new form of welfare- good pay, great benefits for producing next to nothing in valuable services and products. You want to take about adding unnecessary layers of bureaucratic red tape into an already inefficient, bloated system, well then you just got it. Let's see how long a system like that actually sustains itself. What made this country great was small business owners and small to medium-sized companies that didn't outsource their manufacturing. The American dream of giving creative, hardworking entrepreneurship a solid base for starting and keeping their companies here. That is what made us a world power and respected in capitalist circles, not some government mind-drones mindlessly punching away at additional non-essential paperwork.

Revenge of the Reality-Based Community

My life on the Republican rightóand how I saw it all go wrong.

By Bruce Bartlett

I know that itís unattractive and bad form to say ďI told you soĒ when oneís advice was ignored yet ultimately proved correct. But in the wake of the Republican election debacle, itís essential that conservatives undertake a clear-eyed assessment of who on their side was right and who was wrong. Those who were wrong should be purged and ignored; those who were right, especially those who inflicted maximum discomfort on movement conservatives in being right, ought to get credit for it and become regular reading for them once again.

Iím not going to beat around the bush and pretend I donít have a vested interest here. Frankly, I think Iím at ground zero in the saga of Republicans closing their eyes to any facts or evidence that conflict with their dogma. Rather than listen to me, they threw me under a bus. To this day, I donít think they understand that my motives were to help them avoid the permanent decline that now seems inevitable.

For more than 30 years, I was very comfortable within the conservative wing of the Republican Party. I still recall supporting Richard Nixon and Barry Goldwater as a schoolchild. As a student, I was a member of Young Republicans and Young Americans for Freedom at the height of the Vietnam War, when conservatives on college campuses mostly kept their heads down.

In graduate school, I wrote a masterís thesis on how Franklin Roosevelt covered up his responsibility for the Pearl Harbor attackólong a right-wing obsession. My first real job out of graduate school was working for Ron Paul the first time he was elected to Congress in a special election in 1976.(He lost that same year and came back two years later.) In those days, he was the only Tea Party-type Republican in Congress.

After Paulís defeat, I went to work for Congressman Jack Kemp and helped draft the famous Kemp-Roth tax bill, which Ronald Reagan signed into law in 1981. I made important contributions to the development of supply-side economics and detailed my research in a 1981 book, Reaganomics: Supply-Side Economics in Action.

After Reaganís victory, I chose to stay on Capitol Hill, where I was staff director for the Joint Economic Committee and thought I would have more impact. I left to work for Jude Wanniskiís consulting company in 1984, but missed Washington and came back the following year. Jude was, of course, the founding father of supply-side economics, the man who discovered the economists Robert Mundell and Arthur Laffer and made them famous.

I went to work for the Heritage Foundation, but left in 1987 to join the White House staff. I was recruited by Gary Bauer, who was Reaganís principal domestic policy adviser. Gary remains well known among religious conservatives. Late in the administration I moved over to the Treasury Department, where I remained throughout the George H.W. Bush administration.

Afterwards I worked for the Cato Institute and the National Center for Policy Analysis, a conservative think tank based in Dallas. I wrote regularly for the Wall Street Journal editorial page, National Review, and other conservative publications. For 12 years I wrote a syndicated column that ran in the Washington Times, Investorís Business Daily, the New York Sun, and other conservative newspapers.

I supported George W. Bush in 2000, and many close friends served in high-level administration positions. I was especially close to the Council of Economic Advisers and often wrote columns based on input and suggestions from its chairmen, all of whom were friends of mine. Once I even briefed Vice President Dick Cheney on the economy.
