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

Anti-tax lobbyist Grover Norquist says that President Barack Obama will have to “blow up small countries” because Republicans will not let him have “any fun at all” spending taxpayers’ money.
“Obama will be on a very short leash, fiscally speaking, over the next four years,” Norquist told C-SPAN on Thursday.“He’s not gonna have any fun at all.”
“He may decide to go blow up small countries he can’t pronounce because it won’t be any fun to be here, because he won’t be able to spend the kind of cash he was hoping to.”

Unfortunately, Bush-bashing still works with the ignorant, who will swallow anything from Obama.
In Latest Poll, Americans Still Blame Bush Policies For Poor Economy

According to a new CNN poll released Thursday, Americans see little improvement in the economy, and they know just who to blame. A total of sixty-three percent of registered voters think they are no better off (19%) or are worse off (44%) than they were four years ago; sixty-eight percent say the state of the economy is poor to very poor. But if that sounds like bad news for the current administration, keep reading.

CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said,“Since President Barack Obama’s first year in office, a majority of Americans have said that former President Bush’s policies were more responsible for current economic problems than Obama’s policies were.” The current poll shows that 57% still hold that opinion. The only groups in the poll whose majorities didn’t support this view were Republicans and conservatives.

----------

57% of Americans still think Bush is at fault for the economy.

Romney got 47% of the popular vote.

Which is hilarious in light of his 47% comments!!

A clear indication that Americans do not trust Republiclowns with running the nation.

You lose again, Nobraina.

""States with "Right to Work" Laws Have:

Lower Wages and Incomes
The average worker in states with "right to work" laws makes $1,540 a year less when all other factors are removed than workers in other states.1
Median household income in states with these laws is $6,437 less than in other states ($46,402 vs.$52,839).
In states with "right to work" laws, 26.7 percent of jobs are in low-wage occupations, compared with 19.5 percent of jobs in other states.

Less Job-Based Health Insurance Coverage

They’re less likely to have job-based health insurance than people in other states (56.2 percent, compared with 60.1 percent).
Only 50.7 percent of employers in states with these laws offer insurance coverage to their employees, compared with 55.2 percent in other states. That difference is even more significant among small employers (with fewer than 50 workers)—only 34.4 percent of them offer workers health insurance, compared with 41.7 percent of small employers in other states.

Fine example of Obama and his new era of transparency...
"Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Many people forget that there were Americans who survived the Benghazi attack, some of whom were badly injured and are still recovering."
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/12/12...
Grandstanding Chaffetz. There were three state department employees injured during the Benghazi attack, they, along with approx two dozen CIA employees were evacuated from the Benghazi CIA base and then out of the country. The injured were sent to Ramstein Military Hosp. The names of two of the injured were eventually made public.

They are not obligated to speak privately with Chaffetz and I suspect the CIA employees have been instructed not to talk to anyone in congress without being subpoenaed.

I thought you were for choice,but I guess you only want choice if it allows you to kill babys and take what others have worked for, clasic lib mentality, demand freedom of choice for your desire but denie choice for all others .
