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 ...

Two republicans overstating their beliefs in the sanctity of life was unfortunate in the way they expressed it.
No. Akins and Mourdock made absurd statements lacking any factual basis because they were looking for excuses to justify opposing abortion under any circumstances, including rape.

They were factually incorrect, believing BS they heard in their holy roller churches, not just victims of poor expression.

What the frick does it matter if they come to an agreement or not or even if they come up with the best frikkin' plan and agreement known to man?
The Democrat Senate won't take it up for a vote. Even if they did, it wouldn't pass. Even if it did, Obama wouldn't sign it.
The Republicans are being played like a fiddle and are willingly becoming the scapegoats for the real culprits of this mess.
They need to get out of the way once and for all. It doesn't matter what they do - or do not do - at this point. They are only playing into a scheme designed by the democrats.
Republicans like to play follow the Leader(Democrats) and Bush proved that too with the continuation of Clinton's housing initiative and Bush signing into law Medicare Part D that the Republicans just added the cost to the Federal Deficit of the Entitlement Society.

It's unimaginable the number of homeless and hungry people roaming around after January 1 because of no jobs and expired unemployment benefits.

It's unimaginable that Americans let this happen. Voting for this president not once - but twice.
These are people who have exhausted their state unemployment benefits and have moved on to emergency federal unemployment benefits, which also eventually expire. Most whose benefits expire then file for disability benefits. So don't lose any sleep.

Very few people of the type that you describe would jeopardize their lives and careers by engaging in any illegal activity, most specifically selling drugs. It's just not worth the risk.
If drugs are legalized, they will be licensed and regulated and heavily taxed and Walmart or CVS will become the primary outlet. Personal sales will still be illegal, enforced more than ever, because the government will want the revenue. Just like moonshining is still illegal.
HA! You are truly clueless.

<quoted text>Technically, the House and particularly the cons are so divided and dis-functional, they clearly cannot come to any agreement.
Besides, can you tell me who really does control the purse strings?
Last I checked, it wasn't the president!
The House has already agreed on and passed both tax and spending bills.

The Democrat Senate can debate these bills or not, as they choose.

At this point, Boehner and the GOP MUST - absolutely MUST - let Obama own this cliff - lock, stock and barrel.
They are making Obama look like the hero in this bizarre melodrama we're watching unfold in total disbelief. He is now cutting his vacation short to come back and save the day.
Give the darn cliff to him. He's wants it but wants to blame them. Why don't they just give it to him? Let him own it and wear it like a tattoo on his forehead.
Give Obama the tax hikes, the recession, the exploding deficit - all of it - for friggin' cryin' out loud!

Not likely, but if so his successor will be more conservative and less likely to make a deal with Obama.

Since when do you give a rats ass about unemployment benefits? I thought they were all lazy bums who not want to work? Let the charities and churches help them, or they can get a job, the government is not their nanny.

If you think illicit drug trade is nothing but the few street level dealers; then you are clueless. Remember Wells Fargo? Laundering billions in drug money? What happened? A slap on the wrist and a fine. You can probably not even fathom how huge this really is, globally.
I say, tax them. Same with the money laundering churches ; like the Calvary Chapel., a front for organized crime and drug money.
You think the only people who take drugs are those junkies on the street? HA! Wake up. This can only go on with cooperation from everyone. The small guys go to jail, the big guys are sailing the world in custom built yachts and flying their own jets, with enough cash to pay everyone off.

Fine, as soon as unions are taxed on their dues income, which is nothing more than a money laundering operation for the Democrat Party.

Most churches lack sufficient income to pay staff and heat the building.

The Treasury Department announced Wednesday that the nation would hit the debt limit on Dec. 31, and would then have to take “extraordinary measures” to avoid exhausting the government’s borrowing limit in the New Year.

Dick Morris' Terrible 2012

In May, O'Reilly Factor host Bill O'Reilly told Fox News political analyst Dick Morris that because he was "so far out on the limb" predicting a Romney win in the presidential election, if Obama were to be re-elected Morris would be "through" and "selling refrigerators in Topeka." Seven months later, following Obama's comfortable re-election, Morris isn't selling appliances in Kansas (that we know of), but he's the laughingstock of the political pundit class and has temporarily been benched at Fox News.

Like most other years of Morris' media career, 2012 was marked by terribly inaccurate election predictions, habitual dishonesty, and questionable ethical conflicts. Unlike most other years, however, Morris appears to actually be facing consequences and backlash for his role as America's Worst Political Pundit.
