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

Yes, starting with the moron who keeps posting smiley faces to serious posts. Once the full affects of Obamacare are realized, they will have a perpetual grin normally only seen in an asylum.

He misspoke. It would be hard to find even a handful of people who agree with him. He lost and we have much bigger issues to deal with.
We have to be grateful that he spoke, he spoke what he felt, it was not a mistake. It opened the eyes of the American women.
The Bosnians locked up the raped and pregnant women so that they could not have abortions. They were forced to have the rapists babies as a form of ethnic cleansing.

The same number of unemployed are still unemployed. Will they receive unemployment benefits indefinitely? Jobs will become even more scarce with the increased taxes and regulations on businesses.
The two main concerns of the majority - jobs and the economy - before the election apparently got lost after the election. After reelecting the problem again.
Its ironic that college students and young adults supported Obama. Eventually, enough years will pass until the blame Bush excuse doesn't cut it when they are still living in their parents basements and working at McDonalds.

You didn't mention the women in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule.
Punishments against women by the Taliban in Afghanistan were often carried out publicly either as formal spectacles held in sports stadiums or town squares or spontaneous street beatings.
In October 1996, a woman had the tip of her thumb cut off for wearing nail varnish.
In December 1996, 225 Kabul women had been seized and punished for violating the sharia code of dress. The sentence was handed down by a tribunal and the women were lashed on their legs and backs for their misdemeanor.
In May 1997, five female CARE International employees were forced from their vehicle by members of the religious police. The guards used a public address system to insult and harass the women before striking them with a metal and leather whip almost 5 feet in length.
In 1999, a mother of seven was executed in front of 30,000 spectators in Kabulís Ghazi Sport stadium for allegedly murdering her abusive husband. She was imprisoned for three years and extensively tortured prior to the execution, yet she refused to plead her innocence in a bid to protect her daughter (reportedly the actual culprit).
When a Taliban raid discovered a woman running an informal school in her apartment, they beat the children and threw the woman down a flight of stairs (breaking her leg) and then imprisoned her. They threatened to stone her family publicly if she refused to sign a declaration of loyalty to the Taliban and their laws.
An Afghan girl named Bibi Aisha was promised to a new family through a tribal method of solving disputes known as baad. When she fled the violence girls often suffer under baad, her new family found her and a Taliban commander ordered her punished as an example, "lest other girls in the village try to do the same thing". Her ears and nose were cut off and she was left for dead in the mountains, but survived.
Failure to comply with Taliban's threats led to women being shot and killed as was the case of 22-year old Hossai in July 2010.
Many punishments were carried out by individual militias without the sanction of Taliban authorities as it was against official Taliban policy to punish women in the street.
...You're on the wrong side. Of just about everything.
That's your drum to beat dipshit, you never heard of the Taliban before we invaded. I was incensed in the 90's when they started destroying ancient relics that they considered "sacrilegious". They're moronic religious nuts, you should feel right at home.

He sent Timothy Geithner to Capitol Hill to present his laughabale plan to Republicans and to negotiate. Geithner is stepping down in January.
He sat down with Republicans one day on the 17th.
Obama could care less about solving this potential crisis. If Republicans don't give in to his demands by the end of the month, taxes will go up anyway. So he's going to drive us back into a recession with or without negotiating with Republicans.
"Obama could care less"??

What will it take for him to "care less"?

Bush recession of Oct 2008.
Fox fooled you into thinking Mitt would win?
If you watched Fox you'd know that Mitt did win, he just doesn't move into the White House until after the inauguration.

College students and young adults have brains.
The Teavangelical GOP message of phoney math and 1950's social issues are anathema to anyone with an IQ over 65. You know, the age of every GOP voter.

50,000 women were systemically raped in Bosnia, there are approx 500-600 children born from these rapes, they do not have birth certificates, the mothers have abandoned them, the fathers are unknown. Only a handful of these rapists were prosecuted, the women live in fear for life. They are psychologically and physically damaged for life.

How exactly is Obama going to make those cuts? Do you even know?
What we do know is Geithner suggested $1.6 trillion in tax increases but showed minimal or no interest in spending cuts.
When congressional leaders went to the White House three days after the election, Obama talked of possibly curbing the explosive growth of food stamps and Social Security disability payments. But since Geithner didnít mention them, those reductions appear to be off the table now.
It's pretty much about spending and taxing. No cuts to speak of.
Was that your question?

No.

Your question was what cuts Obama proposed. I showed you his proposed cuts and you lolled them around on your tongue long enough to completely wipe them.

Keep up with yourself stupid.

Just when I think you can't get any more stupid.
The programs you're wailing about equal 5% of the military budget.
Social Security has nothing to do with the budget deficit, you ignoramous.
Really, stay stupid. It's why your Party is headed for the trash heap.
70% of Americans support raising the marginal income tax rate 3%, and raising capital gains rate 5%.
Since you're so obsessed with plans, what's Bonehead's plan, anyway?

Do you have any idea what was in that bill? As they say, the devil is in the details.
What may look good on the surface doesn't always look so good when you dig a little deeper.
This is how democrats operate. They make a bill sound like the best thing since sliced bread but don't tell you all the things they added or don't want you to know about.
Like Obamacare. It, too, is going to be full of surprises. Pelosi said so.
When did Fox "News" read the bill to you?

You've never read a bill in your life.

I know this, its evidenced by your incessant ranting about the contents of bills you've never read and don't know the first thing about.

Read a bill, they're really not all that long as a rule.

Top marginal rates under Eisenhower were in the 90% range, it helped pay off the debt from WWII. It was considered "patriotic".

Yes, I thought of him and that other pig Akin. They should read about the rape babies in Bosnia. What will become of these children? No one wants them. They have no birth certificates, fathers unknown, mothers have rejected them or are so destroyed mentally and physically that they cannot care for them.
We should buy a ticket for Murderdoch to visit these children who will live in an instution for life.
I agree Murdoch & Akin would be like two peas in a pod.
