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 ...

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.
You're, as usual, a fool and a liar. "Initially, Romney defended his view, telling reporters at a news conference shortly after the video was posted that his remarks were "not elegantly stated" and that they were spoken "off the cuff." He didn't disavow them, however, and later adopted as a response when the remarks were raised that his campaign supports "the 100 percent in America."

In an interview Thursday night with Fox News, Romney was asked what he would have said had the "47 percent" comments come up during his debate in Denver on Wednesday night with President Barack Obama.

"Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right," Romney said. "In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong."

Actually, much of the forty-seven percent did vote for him--they're the Red State losers like you.(You are still retiring on SS at 61? How is that possible?)

Like that Benghazi stuff is just going to "go away".
New news question overheard of the day-Where'd Syria get all those weapons, now in al qeada hands.
Big, black flags...
Benghazi is a farce.

FAUX is still pushing it, Rmoney tried during the election, but fell flat on his face.

Most Americans are smart enough to realize that we have little control over events in foreign nations, esp. one that just ended a Civil War.

Blame game is ssooo Republiclown, esp. when they refuse to admit the horrible mistake Bush madein Iraq.

Why aren't they looking into Bush's proven lies in the State of the Union speech??

The lies that cost the USA thousands of troops killed, more thousande maimed, over a Trillion dollars??

And you whine about an attack in Benghazi?? One the CIA was in charge of??

Ask FAUX's hero, David Petraeus. If he wasn't chasing panties, he might have done a better job in Libya.

This is only sour grapes from FAUX, the only network chasing a non-story.

They have to do somehting, after making fools of themselves about the election.

You WOULD think the killing of an ambassador and three other Americans, two of whom were Navy Seals, who begged for help but were denied a farce.

Is editing the CIA report by scratching out al Qaeda and sending out a mouthpiece to lie to the American public a farce too?

Nevermind. We see your sign.

Well, coming from someone who has exemplified the same characteristics of which you accuse me in almost every post, I'm not the least bit surprised, leosnana.

You and Rmoney are the 47%!! LOL

The majority is always right, it's the American way!!

You voted for the loser, that makes you the fool by definition.

Even in FL, you're in the minority. More proof that you're the fool!! You and Allen West!!

I'm lovin' it!! Your desperation to claim something, anything out of an election you clearly got demolished in, that is!!

Your analysis of Greece and social democracy was right on the mark.
However, your figure about the cost Medicare Part D was off the charts. The CBO estimated the cost at $724 billion. A far cry from $7 trillion.
Obamacare will cost $1.7 trillion. A far cry from $724 billion.
Obama increased the deficit by $6 trillion under his watch which exceeded Bush's entire 8 years.
The numbers always stack up against Obama far more than Bush. As much as some would like to believe otherwise.
Though everything you say may be true, one must first look at the economic situation of both when 1st entering office. Bush came in with nearly a 6 trillion dollar surplus on the american credit card, so before you start tallying up his debt/deficit, you have to acknowledge the fact that he blew 6 trillion first. Obama came in at the height of a recession that started under bush. In americas under world there's a saying you have to spend money to make. Same thing holds true in mainstream america. Obama had to spend money to stop americas decline. We were on the brink of a drop depression. Two different economic climates. One spent money recklessly for no reason, the other spent money to save america from the failed economic policies of the other. VERY BIG DIFFERENCE SIR!!!

You missed Karl Rove's nervous breakdown on live TV??
They lied to you and you believed it. That makes you a sucker!!
Romney never held a lead, it was all FAUX propaganda. The momentum story was bogus.
Because if either were true, Rmoney would have won the election.i
See Nate Silver's polls, the only one that proved correct both before and after votes were counted.
Your claim that a photo op after Sandy destroyed all Rmoney's lead and momentum is so dumb, only you could come up wirth such a weak idea.
There was never a chance that Rmoney could win. Obama 'gave' him the first debate to keep it from becoming a complete rout well before the election.
If not for that, Rmoney would have lost by 8 Million votes, not the 4.5 Million he won by.
Doofus...
