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

Hallucinations are common in diabetes patients when their blood sugar goes too low/high.
Problem for you is that you said exactly the same things 4 years ago, when he was first elected, and he made a fool out of you by succeeding and getting re-elected!!
I remember your screeds concerning Obama's 'lack of any experience'. Well, after four years of experience he whipped the ass of your Party, in spite of 4 years of constant personal attacks, including nasty religious and racial insults from you.
It's your side, the Teabaggers, who will double up on their irrational hatred and extremism, just as they did in 2010.
Let's review:
"Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck," said Rick Davis, in a statement issued from the McCain campaign. "It's divisive, negative, shameful and wrong."
Yesterday in Missouri, Obama predicted McCain and the GOP would use racially tinged attacks against him.
"What they're going to try to do is make you scared of me," Obama said. "You know, he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."
----------
Or Joe Wilson with his "You lie" during a State of the Union speech, an unprecedented breach of decorum.
The incident resulted in a formal rebuke by the House of Representatives.
----------
Or Orly Taitz, Da Donald, and Corsi keeping the BC lies alive long after sane people had concluded it was merely a racist attack against the first non-white President in American History.
----------
Or Mitch McConnel, who said ""the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."
----------
And you stupidly talk of Democrat irrational hatred and extremism??
You're either the biggest moron in America, or your blood sugar is about to put you in a coma.
Which is it??
Something else in that NBC/WSJ poll: While 24% say they will blame republicans and 19% will point the finger at Obama and democrats, the majority of respondents, 56%, say they will blame both sides equally.

So even though you get to gloat the majority believes Obama holds a clear mandate from the election according to that poll, 53% say they are “optimistic and confident” that Obama will do a good job while 47% are "uncertain or pessimistic".

6% isn't exactly a huge margin of confidence.

Basically, the ball is in Obama's court. He's the one in the spotlight to deliver and prove the majority are correct.

But, as we all know, that has yet to be seen.

“Obsequious praise for small government does the Republicans no good when they too are in favor of big government in their actions.”

comments....

"If they couldn't cut government with all the wind at their backs after the 2010 landslide win, there's no way they'll do it now. They are unprincipled cowards who exist mainly to protect their positions of power (and the perks that go along with it). We have been lied to for years, that's why they are politicians -- they are good liars.

We are two years out from the next election, the only chance to make any kind of serious change is by shaking up leadership while the opportunity exists.

The fact that we even have to wonder if there are 16 members of Congress willing to stand on principle for the good of the country is sobering."

Aren't there already laws on the books protecting fair wages?

What other purpose do unions have now? Besides forcing everyone to pay dues to get their crony democrats elected in order to milk taxpayers even more?

Doomsday Conservatives: Too Many Hormones, Too Little Plan

There is no Republican tax reform plan. In fact, in the last election Mitt Romney conspicuously and repeatedly refused to offer anything but the haziest outline of a tax plan. He would not specify which deductions he'd eliminate, or by how much, or for whom exactly.

There is no Republican plan to get rid of corporate welfare or taxpayer subsidies. Yes, Republicans grumble (rightly) against the Obama green-energy subsidies. But they have not got any kind of agreed definition of what counts as a give-away.

Nor is there a Republican plan for Social Security and Medicare. In 2005, the Republican majority in the House and Senate refused even to schedule a vote on President Bush's proposals for Social Security reform.

As for Medicare, the closest thing there is to a plan, other than the gesture of raising the eligibility age (which will only serve to shift 65 and 66 year olds into other government programs under the Affordable Care Act), is the Ryan plan, which goes into effect … a decade hence. It's an odd kind of emergency that is so urgent it requires immediate enactment of a remedy, on penalty of national bankruptcy, but can wait ten years for the remedy to go into effect.

If Ryan-style Medicare reform can wait until 2023, why can't Ryan-style Medicare reform wait until there's a Republican president and Congress with a mandate to enact it, rather than use extreme and almost extra-constitutional measures to force such a reform on a president and Senate with a mandate to oppose it?

The short answer is: because there is no real plan, only a high-hormone demand to do something, anything, to defy and reject the results of the 2012 election. Once again: tactical radicalism, strategic nihilism.
