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

<quoted text> The Left has insisted that Bush pushed subsidies for Solyndra too and is therefore at least as responsible for the collapse as Obama. Solyndra execs didn’t see it that way in January 2009 and ramped up political pressure to fast-walk approval for the loan guarantees:
Solyndra officials were intensely pressuring Bush administration officials in early January 2009 to approve a government loan for the solar company before the Obama administration took power.
On Jan. 12, 2009, Solyndra CEO Chris Gronet sent an Energy Department official an email marked “urgent” expressing outrage that Bush officials had decided a few days earlier that while the loan application had “merit” it needed further study before officials could move forward with a taxpayer-financed loan.
The Obama administration went ahead with the loan that the Bush administration was reluctant to approve, let alone fast track.
The rest is history.
Nice try. Bush pushed for a decision & the application was lacking. Solyndra fixed the application & it was then approved.

What that says is that both Bush & Obama believed it was a worthy project.

What it says that it was not Obama feeding his cronies.

What it says is that Solyndra had newer technology that was worth exploring.

What it also says is that you right whiners are liars.

You have no clue about Solyndra, its promise, why it was a good investment at the time the investment was made,. why it failed, or even the purpose of the loan program.

I suggest Sonny, that you get better informed. As of now, you appear to be just another dumbass, uneducated & uninformed right whiner.

Realtime thought Fox News made up the phrase "fiscal cliff".

Of course, it was being reported by CNN, ABC and NBC which I had to post to get him in the loop. Not to mention it's on the lips of everyone on Capital Hill these days.

Even so, Realtime still thinks he knows everything. Like the growing number of store chains cutting back employees hours to avoid paying benefits because they aren't good workers...or something like that.

This is what America wanted? ObamaCare Work Disincentives: 4 Cliffs Hit Employees
In the time of Caesar, all roads led to Rome. In the time of ObamaCare, seemingly every path heads straight for a cliff.
The health law is filled with cliffs where the returns for more work take a nose-dive.
The Congressional Budget Office has estimated ObamaCare will "reduce the amount of labor used in the economy by roughly 1/2 a percent" — about 800,000 full-time jobs..........DS1y2sX8
Here is what I just love about you uninformed right whiners. I stopped reading your humongus pile of horse crap with the 800,000 job loss claim.

What the CBO said was that there were significant number of people who were working extra hours to just cover their healthcare cost.

The CBO said that Obamacare would lower their costs & therefore, the number of extra hours they needed to work to pay for their premiums would be lower.

These hours would be the equivalent to 800,000 jobs.

So no, it does not cut 800,000 jobs - that is a blatant lie.

It is actually a good thing that people would have to work fewer hours to pay for the health insurance costs.

My God, is there no end to the number of lies you people tell??

All anyone has to do is compare the state of Texas to the state of California. They both have the largest populations and they both have similar demographics.

But Texas is predominantly conservative and of the mindset the less government, the better. They have a deficit of 1.3 billion and one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.

California, in contrast, is predominantly liberal and are of the mindset there's no such thing as too much government. They have a deficit of 16 billion and one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.

There is also an exodus of people moving out of California to Texas.

You sure
In late February 2012, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, popularized the term "fiscal cliff" for this crisis.

Too much information, I know.

You can't reason with me Carol because you're a stooge of low IQ who puts trust in any old stranger who sings a familiar song.

Ben Bernanke supposedly coined the phrase fiscal cliff and FOX ran with it, with it's halfwit news readers barely able to complete a paragraph without including the phrase. I mentioned that I got a kick out of some fat purple ankled government funded tea party parasite like you calling it the "physical cliff."

The GOP’s Shallow Bench on Foreign Policy

Looking at the Republican “bench” of new political talent, two things stand out. The first is that virtually all of the party’s rising stars have as little foreign policy experience as Romney, and in some cases they have even less. That will make it more difficult for any of them to strike out in a new direction even if one of them wished to do so. The other is that, with the exception of Rand Paul, not one of them has expressed serious doubts or reservations about the Bush foreign policy record or questioned the desirability of an extremely activist and interventionist U.S. role in the world. Those most admired by activists and pundits remain firmly hawkish and supportive of aggressive foreign policy, and they remain convinced that this is one of their party’s strengths. They’re wrong about this, but unfortunately they seem to remain oblivious to that fact.

I'm convinced your problem is plain and simple ignorance. Either that or you believe what any leftwing propaganda source tells you.

A petition was signed by almost 9,000 parents of children with disabilities against the UN's CRPD.

The petition states, "As the parent or family member of a person with disabilities, or as one who lives with a disability, I join with Joni and Friends in urging the United States Senate to reject ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty threatens the traditional right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children, especially if those children live with disabilities, and it limits the ability of the U.S. Congress to make laws for Americans."

Michael Farris, founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlights the concerns of parents across the country.

"We all want to show our love and care for people with disabilities," Farris said. "But all of the rights that parents have under traditional American law, especially the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, will be undermined by this treaty. The United States is a leader in rights for persons with disabilities because we have stuck to the policy of Americans making law for Americans, and that principle should not be undermined."

Texas also has the most % of workers at only minimum wage. Hard to have anything at $15,000.00 per year income.
