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

Christianity is a faith-based personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is a philosophy of Christ's teachings.
That philosophy is expressed, practiced and interpreted by different religions all around the world - from Catholicism and its many sects to Protastantism and its many sects to Easteron Orthodox religions to Oriental Orthodoxy - and everything else in between.
So unless the government is forcing one specific "religion" on the people, it's not the same as tolerating the "philosophy" of Christianity which is basically "peace, good will to all men."
lol! Is that the Old Testament or the New Testament?

Still, in an otherwise highly polarized political climate, access to affordable energy has become a rare issue with bipartisan appeal.
"It's just a no-brainer," Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., told The Associated Press. "Canada is going to export this oil. It's either going to come to the U.S. or it's going to go to Russia or China. Even Democrats that aren't really excited about oil and gas development generally can figure that out."
Many Democrats from states whose economies depend on oil, like Landrieu, support the pipeline. So do some trade unions, whose workers stand to gain thousands of new construction jobs. And while environmentalists make up an important part of their base, Democratic lawmakers are under intense pressure to create jobs and reduce American reliance on Mideast oil.
Can the Repub talking point of Drill Baby Drill ever die?
Here's where the US is right now.
1. Oil Production at the highest level since 2003.
2. Oil IMPORTS at the LOWEST levels in 20 years.
3. Wait for it,,,, Wait for it,,,, US Oil EXPORTS (oil sent away) is at the HIGHEST level since 1949.
You fricken Repubs have been played by big oil. They are shipping US oil 24/7 to China. So much for Drill Baby Drill to lower gas prices.

Footnote: In Aug. 2012 Exxon filed for a permit to build a NEW faucility in the Gulf to load LPG. You know all that new found natural gas that was suppose to make America energy independent? Exxon is going to ship it to China just like they do our oil. Repubs are suckers.

<quoted text>Tell that to Obama. He throws taxpayer dollars around like they are his to do with as he pleases. The jerk promised that he wouldn't pass out corporate welfare if we just voted for him and not the other guy. One of the first things he did as president was dole out corporate bail outs to the wealthy. He is a liar who sees himself as sublimely above the law, and not to be held to his "word", i.e., royalty.
His arrogance is unfathomable. Part of his "plan" was not only increasing spending again but avoiding the checks and balances of power giving himself carte blanche over the debt ceiling and avoiding Congress altogether.

Seriously, this is a very dangerous president. Some of us knew that from the very beginning, but the majority just made him feel even more invicibile - if that was even possible.

Some reasons why McCain should shut up, sit down and be grateful he still alowed to work in politics. He is no position to judge anybody.

McCain crashed 5 jets, plus he was responsible for the horrible USS Forrestal fire In 1967.

Surviving crewmen and those who investigated the Forrestal fire case reported that McCain deliberately 'wet-started' his A-4E Skyhawk to shake up the guy in the F-4 Phantom behind his A-4.

'Wet-starts', done either deliberately (the starter motor switch allowed kerosene to pool in the engine and give a wet start) or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft. In McCain's case, the 'wet-start''cooked off' and launched the M34 Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that punctured the Skyhawk's fuel tank, knocked the M-65 1000 lb. bomb off it's 500 lb. rated mount, and touched off the explosions and massive fire.

The F-4 pilot was reportedly killed in the conflagration, along with 167 of his fellow Forrestal shipmates (including those who died later from wounds suffered).

Since: Oct 08

Remember Pelosi's song and dance about the CIA lying to her? And the press converging on her like a pack of wolves and her near nervous breakdown?

USA Debt increases for the three weeks in November following election days:

2009:+38 billion
2010:+73 billion
2011:+62 billion
2012:+103 billion

45 billion more in 2012 than the previous 3 year average? Obama buying the election with our money?

Note: Bush's re-election in 2004 was only 18 billion more than the three previous year's average.

Nope, they disappeared after the election, just like you. I thought you moved into Shady Pines. Ghost gone too.
Yes, they're done counting in Florida; Florida now a blue state!
Allen West finally conceded. And I happily have Lois Frankel as the congresswoman in my district. All is well in the world.

so funny to watch you wingnuts insinuate that the person who you were so sure the American people would reject in the election, is some sort of arrogant asshole.

arrogance is what lost the election.....

Every person who talks and writes about politics gets stuff wrong. Iíve gotten my fair share wrong. But what I think I got most wrong in Campaign 2012 was the damage Mitt Romneyís ď47%Ē 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 wonít vote for him for any reason. He was referencing the 47% who donít pay taxes and interwove it with a 47% of locked in Obama support. The statement was a mess.

I didnít 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 heíd make the case that heíd help those people get off the government dole and back into work.

In other words, I assumed Romney believed what I believe ó 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, itís you, not them. Seriously.

http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/20/ronald-rea...

and we can tag that arrogance to most of conservatives in this country, and conversely, on this thread. so if you all want to continue with your hypocrisy parade, you can expect us who actually deal with reality to keep shoving right wing pundits who agree down your throats.

I liked this comment from the WSJ:
was too hopeful that the Republican Party would realize it was time to compromise. But they continue to be obstructionists.
If we canít compromise to get wealthy Americans to pay their fair share, letís all drive off the cliff together. When we go off the cliff, wealthy Americans will start paying their fair share. Average Americans will have to pay a little more than their fair share; i hope we can handle that for a while. We will get defense cuts, something the Republicans would never agree to. And social security and the Affordable Health Care act will be fine, unrelated issues the Republicans keep bring up. Fear will tumble Wall Street but it will bounce back very soon.
Driving off the cliff might be the best deal we get. Donít be afraid, donít blink.
