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 ...

How much $$ will be squandered on B Hussein Obama's second inauguration? The word out today is that the WH is considering corporate sponsors for all the lavish, gala parties. Taxpayers pick up all the security costs.

I think it interesting that he is willing to take money from the very corporations, the rich corporations that he constantly puts down. Obama is talking out of both sides of his mouth again - he wants to punish corporations and capitalism but he wants to use their money to have multiple big parties with??

So, are there going to be Soros banners and ACLU banners, other union banners and banners selling cars!! Oh, and will there be banners for Solyndra and other bankrupt green companies??

The thought of this is disgusting and despicable. This is the kind of fundamental change to the very fabric of America that conservatives don't want to see and liberals SHOULDN'T want to see.

Or, do you supposed the unemployed and 'poor' will be invited to the D.C. festivities?

Virginia’s Republican Party appears poised to nominate state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to be its candidate for governor in 2013 — embracing a man whose extreme political views bear striking resemblance to those of unsuccessful 2012 Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO).

. He wants an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest.

He does not believe LGBT people deserve legal protections. Cuccinelli has made it clear that he believes same-sex relationships are immoral. In 2009, he told a Virginia newspaper,“My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. They’re intrinsically wrong

He is a climate-change denier.

He suggested President Obama stole the 2012 election

He wants Arizona-style anti-immigrant policies and self-deportation

He is a “tenther"

On top of all of this, he also opposed a 2004 bill to require members of the clergy to report child abuse — a bill supported by almost every religious group in the state — and was the lone vote against another bill aimed as strengthening domestic violence protections.

Recall the situation in 2003. The Bush administration was already projecting the largest deficit in American history--$475 billion in fiscal year 2004, according to the July 2003 mid-session budget review. But a big election was coming up that Bush and his party were desperately fearful of losing. So they decided to win it by buying the votes of America's seniors by giving them an expensive new program to pay for their prescription drugs.

Fox Wins Straw-Man Argument Against Taxing Millionaires At 100 Percent
Fox News is distorting President Obama's economic agenda by pushing the straw-man argument that taxing the entirety of millionaires' incomes would fund the government for less than three months. In fact, Obama has proposed no such thing, and this Republican talking point obscures the billions in revenue that would be generated from letting the Bush tax cuts expire for wealthy households.
http://mediamatters.org/research/2012/09/24/f...
The revenue from increasing taxes on the "wealthy" would not even cover the storm relief requested by New York. Not to mention relief for New Jersey and other states.

Ok, so you can be gay but not have sex because it gives little boy Cucinelli a tingle!

Don't you know? We have freedom of speech in this country. Unless it hurts someone's feelings, but they must be in a politically protected group. Italians probably not. You can say Italians are Mafioso. You can't say Muslims want to impose Sharia Law or don't need to learn to land the planes.

Even today they are talking about the black football player who shot his baby mama. Wondering if it was from a brain trauma from football that the league overlooked.

If he wasn't a famous football player and just a 25 year old black male who had a fight and killed his 21 year old baby mama, it wouldn't even make the news, because it is so routine. But no one is allowed to say that on TV.

Only a fool would think that the same Congress that got us in this mess can get us out of this mess.
The fiscal cliff is the byproduct of multiple congressional compromises to kick several different cans down the road. Now they’ve all landed in the same spot. Both sides are trying to kick multiple cans at one time and are kicking each other instead.
What’s really going on in Washington right now is Republicans are in theater trying to look like the reasonable party. They want back in the good graces of the American public and want to at least save some face when polling says they’ll probably get blamed and their position is unpopular.
They might as well give it up. They’re going to get the blame no matter what happens. They are disjointed with bad spokesmen. One is orange and the other ... well ....
They might as well dive.

Going over the "fiscal cliff" is the only hope for bringing some sanity to the federal budget. Time to take the bitter medicine.

You wouldn't mind tax increases if there was the slightest hope that the money wouldn't be squandered. But it will be, because the government always acts N***** Rich with our money.

<quoted text>One more time for the slow crowd. The 47% that pay no taxes are those retired over 65 years old, students, deployed military, those in rest homes, long term care hospitals, and those in mental hospitals. Many are those that work full time jobs but at year end receive the Earned Income Tax Credit refund because of their jobs being low paying. You choose. You choose which of the groups are you going to tax. But please don't tax my 86 year old mom. She just gets by on SS.
Even though Romney didn't think through his comment made in private and admitted the next day he was "dead wrong" about lumping the 47% who receive some kind of government subsidy with the much smaller percentage who manipulate the system, the point he was making to the small group of campaign contributors he was addressing - however broad-based - was that the 47% probably wouldn't vote for him because of being afraid of losing whatever government subsidies they receive - for whatever reason.

He obviously went too far lumping them altogether and admitted as such, but the reality of the 47% not voting for him was correct.

We have, in fact, become a nanny state. The problem, of course, is Obama couldn't be happier. The more the merrier. By continuing to stifle the private sector, there will be a lot of merriment in this White House.

"Vicious cycle" couldn't have a more clear meaning.

Do you really believe that if the government votes to spend say $1 billion on highway construction, that $1 billion actually is spent on materials and labor for the construction?

They had four years to do it. They didn't. They voted against it under Bush because it wasn't their idea first.

They also knew Medicare Part D looked like chump change compared to Obamacare. They had no leg to stand on.
