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

Republicans should go on the offensive and agree to Obama's tax policy if, and only if, it is coupled with significant current spending reduction.

Otherwise, let the ship go over the cliff, which would be better for the economy than the Obama plan.
Yeah

Doesn't surprise me in the least. Obama always talks out of both sides of his mouth. You're the one who should be angry.

The 1% are supposed to be the "enemy". But the 1% couldn't give enough to Obama's campaign and he also holds the record of the number of expensive and numerous fundraisers held just for them.

You're not angry?

There's big money in politics these days__how do you feel about "the grassroots" FreedomWorks paying Dick Armey $8 million to scram? You TeaParty loons ought to be spitting nails mad__but nary a peep.

Mitt's business acumen has failed him in politics losing three out of four attempts and tiring of the governors office. Mitt's a phony, you won't be hearing much from him going forward.

In the wake of the election, there's no doubt the Republican Party is capable of making some adjustments to rebrand itself. If nothing else, the party has demonstrated its proclivity for sloganeering and marketing and there are plenty of ways it can adjust its messaging. But it's obvious to anyone paying attention that the base simply won't allow the party to change in any meaningful way.

don't you just get a kick out of those who insist that the republicans didn't act crazy enough?

If President Obama honestly wants to negotiate an agreement with Republicans before the year-end fiscal deadline, he must be deeply frustrated. And if he doesn't really want to negotiate with them, then he should be delighted, for the same reason: Their latest "offer" laid before him by House Speaker John Boehner demonstrates again their refusal to reveal their true intentions ó and their inability to do simple arithmetic.

In case the poster, Chicago, hasn't said this yet.

The Senate voted to approve The Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq with the support of large bipartisan majorities on October 11, 2002, providing the Bush administration with a legal basis for the U.S. invasion under U.S. law.

It cited the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the resolution signed by former President Clinton, that it should be the policy of the United States to remove the Hussein regime and promote a democratic replacement.

In the wake of unexpected losses last month, Republicans are going through the classic stages of grief. Some are denying that conservatism was their downfall. Most are depressed at the prospect of another four years of an Obama administration. A few, including some pollsters who missed the mark badly, are bargaining to keep their jobs. All are angry ó at the results, at the fact that they didn't see it coming, and at the position in which the party now finds itself: badly trailing Democrats when it comes to the technological and political savvy required to run and win campaigns.

Many Republicans say that there is a skills gap between the two parties, based on neglect within their own ranks and advances on the Democratic side. Acceptance, and adapting to overcome the deficit, will be critical to rebuilding the Grand Old Party.

Why the GOP Won't Admit Supply-Side Econ Has Failed

The failure of Republicans to deliver on their promise that tax cuts would be mostly self-financing is a large factor in the deterioration in our long-run fiscal outlook, and it is putting considerable pressure on programs such as Social Security. In fact, the Bush tax cuts can be thought of as a loan from the Social Security Trust Fund that was supposed to be paid back with the revenues from higher economic growth, a loan that is presently in default.....

Despite their failed promises, the Republican Party is asking that we extend the tax cuts for the wealthy, and some are even calling for further reductions in tax rates. However, if the Republican Party is truly the party of business, then surely it will understand that no responsible financial institution would continue to invest in a business that failed meet, or even come close to the growth and revenue projections that justified the investment in the first place. The payoffs from tax cuts that were promised during the Bush years have not been realized, and the failed promises about growth and revenue have damaged the health, education, and retirement programs the working class depends upon in our increasingly globalized economy.

A true party of business would end our investment in the false promise of supply-side economics. However, a party with a goal of reducing the scale of programs such as Social Security and Medicare along with delivering tax cuts to wealthy political backers would use arguments about the economic effects of tax cuts to disguise its true intentions. Which description fits best? Many Republicans still claim that tax cuts for the wealthy enhance economic growth despite the evidence to the contrary, but itís rare to hear a Republican admit that these supply-side policies have failed.

And this is the ongoing enigma with Democrats.

Even though every prominent Democrat on Capital Hill - including President Bill Clinton who signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 - said Saddam had to go, President Clinton then said in 2002:

"As a preemptive action today, however well-justified, may come back with unwelcome consequences in the future....I don't care how precise your bombs and your weapons are, when you set them off, innocent people will die."

That's like saying going after Hitler in WWII would mean "innocent people will die."

The fact that even more innocent people would die in gas chambers, massacres, scientific experiments and would suffer unimaginable deaths simply can't be grasped by Democrats.

Is dying to end evil atrocities worse than dying because of them?
Yeah

lol! You people are talking apples and oranges and you don't even know it.

His point was Congress declared war. And the Congressional records "prove" it. I simply asked for them.

You're still not smart enough to know the AUMF AUTHORIZED the president to use military force at HIS DISCRETION. They know who the commander in chief is... you clearly don't.

Con stupidity can be so appalling... and then I bust out laughing at how comical it is!
