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 ...

Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D. said rising health care costs in Medicare and Medicaid are helping to drive future spending making them an essential part of a long-term deficit-reduction package.

"If you're going to solve this problem, you're going to have to deal with where the spending is and the revenue can be raised."

Do I detect a hint of common sense among some democrats?

Democrats want to drive over the fiscal cliff, and Republicans should let them do so.

Dem. Patty Murray said she's ready to take us over the fiscal cliff if democrats don't get their way and raise taxes.
So let me get this straight.
Raising taxes will take us back into a recession...and democrats are threatening to ruin the economy if they can't cause another recession?
Do I have that right?
Yes, carol, you've got that right.

Sen. Tom Coburn, released an annual government spending report revealing $4.5 billion in wasteful Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program spending.

The report finds program participants purchased junk food, Starbucks and beer at a cost of about $80 billion.

"Lax controls and mismanagement resulted in billions of dollars being spent not on healthy meals for hungry kids but instead wasted on questionable and, in some cases, illegal expenditures," Coburn's report says, estimating that another $2.5 billion in improper SNAP payments will be made this year.

Duplicate, dead and disqualified participants also receive approximately $1.4 million every month from the SNAP program. The report cites an investigation by the USDA Inspector General that found 2,000 dead people in New York and Massachusetts alone still receive stamps.

Unfortunately, most democrats on Capital Hill don't want to even address this kind of waste. Their common sense is grossly lacking.

You Think Obama Stole the Election? Then Read This

We try hard to be a serious website where serious-minded people can interact and a website that can be read and quoted in the media and in political circles without people laughing and pointing. You can’t do that when your comments section is infested with people espousing various conspiracy theories.

RedState has never been simpatico to conspiracy theories. In our history we’ve dealt with 9-11 Troofers and Birfers and all manner of believers in the omnipresence of Opus Dei, the Bilderbergers, the Illuminati, and, of course, the Jews and their ability to manipulate world events. Our response is to ban them on sight.

This last election was a hard loss of all of us, even those of us who were never Romney fans. I think we all realized the limitless ability to harm the nation that Barack Obama and his minions represents. Be that as it may, the people have spoken (the bastards) and we are saddled with this guy for another four years.

If we are going to move beyond this we have to face the facts. We were out hustled. They turned out their base and we couldn’t be bothered to turn out ours, much less do what it takes to win uncommitted voters. We lost. They won. And the nation will suffer because of it.

What did not happen was any “stealing” of the election. No one denies that there were irregularities in some places but the sum total of the allegations do not reach Kennedyesque proportions where they actually affected the outcome in any material way. This is nonsense and just as silly when people on our side make the claim as when the left howled about Diebold machines giving the 2004 election to President George W. Bush (President… George… W.… Bush, my gosh that sounds so beautiful today).

So, heads up. We have made a decision that we will, henceforth and forever, treat those who claim Obama won the 2012 election via shenanigans in the polling place the same way we treat troofers and birfers. We will immediately ban them. We don’t have time to shoot down these arguments every time the appear because they have been definitively refuted on many occasions. If you hold this exotic view and are feeling all butthurt, too bad. Life isn’t fair. If life was fair we’d be anticipating the inauguration of President Mitt Romney Rick Perry and watching the Obama’s pack the U-Haul.

I agree. And more are ready to do that. Others still want to pull the emergency break. It's too late. Better not to have their fingerprints anywhere on the driving mechanism.

If it's going to happen, republicans need to get out of the car and get out of the way.

Erick Erickson:

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.

Let Obama drive over the fiscal cliff:
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: It's not just a bad deal, this is really an insulting deal. What Geithner offered, what you showed on the screen, Robert E. Lee was offered easier terms at Appomattox, and he lost the Civil War. The Democrats won by 3% of the vote and they did not hold the House, Republicans won the house. So this is not exactly unconditional surrender, but that is what the administration is asking of the Republicans.
This idea -- there are not only no cuts in this, there's an increase in spending with a new stimulus. I mean, this is almost unheard of. What do they expect? They obviously expect the Republicans will cave on everything. I think the Republicans ought to simply walk away. The president is the president. He's the leader. They are demanding that the Republicans explain all the cuts that they want to make.
We had that movie a year-and-a-half ago where Paul Ryan presented a budget, a serious real budget with real cuts. Obama was supposed to gave speech where he would respond with a counter offer. And what did he do? He gave a speech where he had Ryan sitting in the front row. He called the Ryan proposal un-American, insulted him, offered nothing, and ran on Mediscare in the next 18 months.
And they expect the Republicans are going to do this again? The Republicans are going to walk on this. And I think they have leverage. Yes, for Congressional Democrats it will help them in the future if Republicans absorb the blame because we will have a recession. But Obama is not running again unlike the Congressional Democrats. He's going to have a recession, 9% unemployment, 2 million more unemployed, and a second term that's going to be a ruin. That is not a good proposition if you are Barack Obama.
I heard Pelosi on NPR browbeating the opposition claiming that the vast majority of Americans voted for "..Obama's vision of the future.." and I almost spit out my coffee.

Let Pelosi swallow this. She loves swallowing it.

It's all right here, grasshopper, the crux of the matter:
"Because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made a market for subprime mortgages the lenders did not have to worry about of the soundness of the mortgage contract they wrote. Thus the lenders could write the mortgages as adjustable interest rate mortgages knowing full well that an upturn in the interest rates could easily throw the borrower into insolvency. For example, when the interest rate is 6 percent the mortgage payment for a 30-year $200,000 mortgage is $1199 per month. If the interest rate goes up to 7 percent the mortgage payment would increase by $131 per month, an 11 percent increase. For many of the subprime borrowers living on the edge of insolvency this would be enough to push them over the edge. The guilt for the subprime mortgage financial crisis lies both with the lenders who knowingly put borrowers into booby trapped mortgages and the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for making a market for such booby trapped mortgages thus giving the lenders the incentive for writing them. "
Dems own this mess, lock, stock and barrel.
sonicfiller can't think for himself. He needs to copy something from a leftist weblink to feel better. If you present him with naked facts, he hesitates, gets confused and stutters with "?".

He might do better with an Obama Brand Teleprompter.
