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

Jane was in Egypt? She sure gets around!

An EgyptAir flight from Cairo to Kuwait was forced to make an emergency landing on Monday after a passenger on the plane was bitten by a snake, according to a report in Ahram Online, an English-language Egyptian news site.

The Constitution is a governing document
Unlike the Republican Party which seems split between nobama and carol. Libertarian vs Right to Life.

Thankfully the failure of Romney and the GOP to come up with anything but cutting taxes leaves Republicans in the lurch. Nature abhors a vacuum and the party's neglect of jobs and inflation gives voters the chance to fill that vacuum with their feelings about the last Republican president.
This isn't good news for Republicans because a large majority (53 percent to 38 percent) of the electorate blames George W. Bush not Barack Obama for the condition of today's economy.

Unless and until we have true campaign finance reform and our elected officials must spend most of their time begging for money from corporations; the tax code will not be reformed.
Let the disaster happen.
Merry Christmas to you too!
Thanks. I think it's going to happen. I think no matter what we are going to get downgraded again which should mean interest rates should go up. That is the invisible elephant in the room. Should interest rates on the debt start rising we are screwed. That is the only glue holding the house of cards together. Low interest rates. But they won't stay down forever.

The majority of Americans did want Obama's version of health care reform passed. It was passed anyway proving he wasn't "here to do the will of the people".
The majority of Americans believe we are on the wrong track. Obama is taking us down the same one proving he isn't "here to do the will of the people".
The majority of Americans were against the nearly trillion dollar stimulus and nothing to show for it. Obama spent it anyway proving he wasn't "here for the will of the people".
So I have no idea what you're talking about.

You said nothing that makes any sense! Ask have were opinions (your own)! He was re elected proven the majority of people see things the way he does, so I don't know what your talking about! In the real world your opinion means nothing except to those who have to deal with the consequences. NOW THAT A FACT!!!

When Fox News chief Roger Ailes sent one of his national security correspondents to interview then-General David Petraeus in 2011, chances are he didn’t want the full conversation to ever see the light of day — because if it did, the network’s claim of being “fair and balanced” could be forever buried.

As it happened, someone was recording. The Washington Post revealed Monday that Ailes had contributor K.T. Mcfarland deliver a message to Petraeus directly: run for president as a Republican and News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch will bankroll you

The Republican push to make it more difficult to vote this year — seen by many as a racially tinged attempt to keep Democratic turnout down — could not have failed more spectacularly, a top African American activist told a left-leaning think tank Tuesday.

Chanelle Hardy, a vice president at the National Urban League, told an audience at the Center For American Progress in Washington that, as conservatives had suspected, there was a drop-off in enthusiasm among the African American electorate between 2008 and 2012. Republicans based a lot of their strategy on enthusiasm dips like these, assuming that Obama wouldn’t be able to maintain the same level of minority turnout he had enjoyed in 2008.

Unfortunately for those Republican strategists’ plans, however, other Republicans in legislatures across the country were on a quest to impose restrictions on voting, chasing the ghost of in-person voter fraud.

Those Republican legislators flipped a switch with the African American vote, Hardy said, rekindling whatever enthusiasm had waned after 2008’s historic Obama win.

“We’d been struggling for many years in our communities with how we make the argument that our parents and grandparents had handed down to us:‘you must vote, because people fought and died for you to have the right to vote.’ It starts to become a little less motivating the further away you get away from those really visceral memories of what it took to get to the polls,” Hardy said.“But then you bring back a 35 state assault on our ability to vote and it starts getting really reminiscent. All of the things our parents were telling us and our grandparents were telling us become visceral to a new generation.”

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) may be one of the foremost tea party champions, but a poll out Wednesday indicates that the overwhelming majority of voters in his state do not identify with the conservative movement.

The poll, from Winthrop University, shows that nearly 91 percent of registered voters in South Carolina do not consider themselves members of the tea party. About 6 percent of Palmetto State voters said they are a part of the movement.

That 2010 'mandate' fell flat on it's face.
