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

Ronald Reagan used to say, "I didn't leave the Democrat Party. It left me."
That pretty much sums it up. It left a lot of people.
You Repubs want Reagan on Mount Rushmore, but there is NO WAY he could be elected by the rightwingnuts. Not the man that raised the nations debt by 186% and gave amnesty to millions of illegals. How would that play to the Tea Party?Only way Reagan could be elected today would be running as a Democrat. But then again that's the only way any President from now on will be elected.

Look, sonny, Urban education has failed you miserably. You need to rise up to a minimum level of intellectual cognizance before making a fool of yourself any further.

Common Knowledge? How would you know how to recognize ANY type of knowledge being so poor in it?

This has nothing to do with the union, it has to do with politics.
If you don't want to support the union, don't work at a union shop.
Work somewhere else since obviously you think you can get the same pay & benefits elsewhere.
To utilize the efforts of the union to get better pay& benefits without supporting it would be a chickensh*t thing to do. Probably why you would do it.
has to do with economics. I can tell you right now, A guy I went to high school with is making more than they ever did working in a UAW Union Shop and within the first year after they closed the UAW union shop he was making 50% more in pay and Benefits and the UAW didnt do nothing for them, UAW was just interested in union dues and that is all they care about and trust me I have been in many union shops and same BS goes on the union only looking out for their financial position.

CNBC's Eamon Javers reports the latest developments on "fiscal cliff" talks in Washington, and debating the financial benefits of raising taxes on the wealthy, with Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital CEO, and Richard Brodsky, Demos senior fellow.
PETER SCHIFF: First of all, I'm in the top two percent. Right now, I'm paying 45% of my total income in income taxes, both to the state of Connecticut and to the federal government, and if you take the 3% Medicare tax. After the tax hikes go into effect next year, more than half -- more than half of my total income is going to go to the government. You tell me, what's fair about that when medieval serfs pay 25%, I'm paying half? I don't care what the majority voted to do, they don't have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it.
###
SCHIFF: You know what the wealthy are going to do? They're going to invest more abroad, they're not going to work as hard, they're not going to pay as much in taxes, they're not going to employ as many people. Their employees are going to pay all the taxes.
You might want to pass this over to ImaginaryDave. He says that the SCOTUS won't allow a majority to trample the rights of any minority.

The federal government cannot send armed National Guard into any state without that governor's permission to take control of that state.
"Armed" is the key word here. Bush refused to send in National Guard unarmed because of the violence and looting.
A democrat governor apparently had reservations about saving the same people she neglected to protect.
You are right, carol. Sending unarmed National Guard Troops into New Orleans at that time would be like sending National Guard Troops into Detroit during the '67 riots. The Governor and the President both knew that.

She changes the subject.
She won't admit that Reagan had alzheimers for most of his 8 years any more than she will admit to the mistakes Bush made.
Yet she refuses to address why Bush has been declared dead by the Republiclown Party.
carol simply doesn't listen to lies like yours. She's rational.

She also clearly recognizes a mouth with no brain behind it when she sees one in your posts.

And Stahl isn't biased? Stahl makes no attempt to conceal her bias anytime and anywhere.
She said herself Reagan seemed to "recover" and interpreted it to possibly be "what LOOKED like a lapse into semi-awareness" or an "act" as a way to avoid answering her questions.
Just because a few White House officials said that Reagan sometimes seemed distant but always "pulled himself together" - her words, not theirs - means Stahl is probably more confused than anyone.
Liberal Media Madams are a dime-a-dozen propagandists.

See what happens when they let Hollywierd into run things? Of course that statement could exclude the fact that in some of Reagans admin, higher bars were in set in place, and people tended to HAVE to rely more on THEMSELVES, rather than just living off the givverment...so..

Guess Reagan wasn't as bad as SOME, but sure not a GOOD as others.

Yes Carol, that 78% was exactly what I was referring to. He did what any competent president would unlike his predecessor who got a whopping 35% approval rating on his handling of Katrina.
I never mentioned anything about Romney's claims on the $317 billion cuts from Medicare but either you have no reading comprehension skills or you're trying to divert from his blatant lie about cutting the work requirement for welfare by pointing to something he said that was only half true. The article you cite from Forbes actually comes from a Romney campaign advisor and you very carefully edited the article from the LA Times omitting this important statement;
"Mitt Romney repeated a somewhat misleading claim that President Obama cut $716 billion out of the Medicare program for current beneficiaries.
The president’s healthcare law does reduce future spending on Medicare, but those savings are obtained by reducing federal payments to insurance companies, hospitals and other providers, and do not affect benefits for people in the Medicare program.
Hospitals and other providers agreed to these cuts in exchange for the Affordable Care Act’s plan to reduce the number of uninsured patients they currently care for."
A large chunk of the cuts go to overpayments the government has been paying private insurance to administer Medicare Advantage plans which in reality don't offer much advantage and end up costing seniors more.
www.washingtonpost.com/.../Romney 's-right-Obamacare-cuts-medica r...
You're also ignoring the fact that the budget his running mate Paul Ryan proposed also cut $317 billion from Medicare but uses that money to protect tax cuts to the wealthy.
It wasn't Obama that accused Romney of killing someone's wife it was one of the PACs which by law has no direct connection to the Obama campaign. he President made it clear during a press conference;
"I don't think that Governor Romney is somehow responsible for the death of the woman that was portrayed in that ad," he said. "But keep it mind, this is an ad that I didn't approve, I did not produce, and as far as I can tell has barely run. I think it ran once."
No Carol Romney's ads whether run by his campaign or PACs and multiple statements made on the stump were patently false.
America’s doctors have conducted a full examination of the president’s health reform law — and their diagnosis of its effects on our healthcare system isn’t good.

Nearly two-thirds of doctors expect the quality of care in this country to decline, according to a new survey from consulting giant Deloitte. Just 27 percent think that the law will lower costs. And nearly seven of every 10 doctors believe that medicine is no longer attractive to America’s “best and brightest.”

Few people know more about our healthcare system than doctors working on the frontlines. Policymakers should pay heed to their indictment of Obamacare and revisit the disastrous law.

President Obama promised that his reform package would begin to stymie the out-of-control growth in the cost of American health care. He pledged $2,500 in health insurance savings for the typical American family.
