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 ...

Earlier this evening, I drove to town for groceries. As I pulled my car into the parking space, I saw a bumper sticker ahead of me saying "Don't like Liberals? Don't listen to the Media". I agreed and smiled to myself. It is comforting to occasionally find yourself in sociopolitical agreement with a stranger. I later stowed the groceries in the trunk and then decided to stop off for a Dairy Queen hamburger. I pulled into the Drive-Thru lane and lo and behold: the car ahead of me also had a bumper sticker. It said "I Don't Listen To Liberal Media". That's TWO inside of an hour!
But it got even more interesting. As I drove home, I turned on the radio to catch some news on NPR. There was a host interviewing two reporters. One was from the NY Times(of course) and the other was, I think, from the Chicago Tribune. Both reporters were lambasting the House Republicans. They both said that Conservatives have lost all definition of "compromise" and said that Obama has been bending over backward to meet them half-way. The NPR host agreed with them. I began screaming at the radio. These three Fellows In Fellatio then began discussing Susan Rice and just what a wonderful choice she would have made for SOS but, again, the Republicans don't understand compromise. They then noted that other Obama choices were afraid that they would become "Riced". The NPR host giggled and said "I like that. Got Riced!". He began using that expression further into their discussion. The MSM has completely dispensed with any pretense regarding their Leftist politics and intentions. And yet, if you call them on it, they instantly raise their hackles and start promoting their image of neutrality. Sickening.
In one short evening, I had witnessed the growing awareness that the common people around me have of Liberal Media's daily propaganda broadcasts. And then, as I drive home, I am exposed to it in all of it's vomiting glory.
The House is acting like it should and I am supporting their efforts like I should.
Republicans should have allowed Susan Rice to slide through to continue the incompetence exhibited by Hillary Clinton.

John Kerry, whatever his faults, is far more competent for this important position than the "equal opportunity" loser Rice.

It's refreshing to see that Obama finally realizes that he needs a few white men in key positions and can staff the meaningless jobs, such as UN Ambassador, with losers like Susan Rice.

How about Al Sharpton for Treasury Secretary?

Going over the fiscal cliff will do far more to address our budget problems than will Obama's vengeful taxation program.

Time for the poor to pull their share of the load.

<quoted text>That many children dying each day at the hands of NRA gun nuts is a travesty. The NRA is a terrorist organization that should be outlawed. It is time for President Obama to outlaw the NRA and private ownership of all firearms. Americans are tired of their children being murdered by psychopathic NRA gun nuts.

Actually, if you weren't ignorant of events in American history, they were removing from power a head of state at war with the United States who was also in violation of 18 UN resolutions.
Bush43 ordered the Armed Forces of the United States to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
Something else you pretend to be ignorant of, it didn't matter where we went to fight the war they started in their backyard. Wherever we went, the Arab jihad was going to go there and fight us.
The 4000 Americans you referenced killed died crushing the Arab jihad that went to Iraq to fight us, who also were the same Arab jihad that started a war with the United States by murdering 3000 innocent Americans here in our own goddam country.
... another mission accomplished.
Really??? When did Iraq plan on attacking America? You do know there were never any Al-Qaeda in Iraq before 2003.

You do have a point. Tine for the US to cut $500 billion out of the military. 4% of the worlds population but spending more than the next 10 nations combined.
The Richest 400 people in the US have more wealth than the first 150 million Americans. Time for them to pull the load and go back to the 1996 tax rates instead of the 18% average tax rate they paid in 2010. 6 of them paid NO taxes.

NRA Leader Wayne LaPierre's Much-Criticized Sandy Hook Speech Was Actually Quite Effective

Spend enough time dipping into the post-game reaction of NRA leader Wayne LaPierre's press conference today -- staged and performed as the organization's first public statement since the tragic school shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.-- and you'll likely run up on any number of people who'll tell you the LaPierre's presentation (which included calls for more guns in schools and greater restrictions on video games) was tone-deaf or ineffective or out-of-touch or a failure.

Those critics are wrong. LaPierre's presentation was terrifically effective.

Granted, if you believe that what LaPierre was trying to do today was to sincerely join in a national conversation over school shootings, or offer a coherent set of preventative policy options, or even just demonstrate some baseline sensitivity for the lives that were lost, it is easy to see why you'd deem LaPierre's press conference to be an ineffective, tone-deaf failure. But what you should remember that the National Rifle Association does not exist to offier sensible public policy or participate in conversations or pretend to be sensitive about tragedies. The National Rifle Association exists to assist the manufacturers of guns and gun-related accoutrements in selling guns and gun-related accoutrements to people. That is their job, summed up, in its entirety.

The NRA are lobbyists who represent a bunch of gun retailers, and this is what lobbyists do -- they help their clients sell their products. And every action that LaPierre took today can and should be viewed through that prism.

......Wayne LaPierre did not go out in front of reporters in a sincere attempt to mount a policy argument or craft a solution or engender warm feelings from his critics. Today was about synergy. Wayne LaPierre went out in front of reporters because he knew it was time to leverage the Sandy Hook shooting into a unique, sales-boosting opportunity for the industry he represents.

And what's going on in Connecticut today?

So, you maybe didn't notice, but today was a good day for Wayne LaPierre.

Cutting the defense budget will put tens of thousands of highly-paid union workers in defense industries on unemployment. Loyal Democrats. Time for them to share the load as well.

One huge problem with the Obama tax revenge plan is that it targets successful working people, not the truly wealthy.

The budget deficit must be addressed, by any means necessary.

If you want more taxes from me, you can pay more as well.

If the US cuts its military budget, who will be left to overthrow dictators like Khaddafi, Mubarak, and Assad?

Obama's war on guns will be even less successful than the war on drugs.

Obama's war on guns may save the Republican Party from its own stupidity. All they need to do is sit back and let Obama dig himself a hole. All those folks buying guns are voters, and many of them are Democrats.

By the way, do you know who was responsible for the US-acquired intelligence on Iraq's WMD program? Who was the person feeding fraudulent intelligence to both Bill Clinton and Bush43?
Valerie Plame.
ROFLMAO.
Valerie Plame was a Washington party girl who liked to impress others by claiming to be a CIA agent.

seeing as how he 'started' that 'war' 4 years ago, i'd say he already sucks at it.

or is there some leap of faith conspiracy that an intelligent mind would never see that i should be unaware of?
