Barack Obama, our next President

lol! No one should be giving credit to Obama for "...fracturing(sic) and basically shattering(sic) the Republican opposition..."

LOL!
Besides, you have it bass ackwards as usual (to make your lame point). Out of the millions of guns owned domestically in the USA, a very small percentage are used to kill people. Guns were also designed to "protect" people or for sport/hunting/target shooting, which is what "all" law abiding people use them for.
That bit of common sense is foreign to a loon like you, idiot.
Have fun at your crappy job next week. Change a toilet for me, will ya, dummy.
Who says my job is crappy Jimmy? You don't know anything about what I do, you're just making baseless assumptions.
We're not talking about all guns Jimmy, we're talking about weapons that are specifically designed to kill people. I've hunted and I've known a lot of other people that hunt and none of them need a 30 round clip to get a deer. Contrary to what guns are seldom used in self defense.

ARMED POLICE ON EVERY SCHOOL CAMPUS NOT PRACTICAL - THERE IS ANOTHER SOLUTION

There's suggestions about putting an armed guard or police officer in every school in America - a bad idea. Who do you think a deranged killer(s) are going to target first? Why, the one person on campus in a uniform with a gun. Wouldn't take much recon to figure out a pattern for a rent-a-guard at a school. Some school campuses are very large. One isn't going to do it or deter a shooter.

But, how do we protect children and adults in schools and university campuses?

A few days ago, Rep. Dennis Richardson, who serves in the Oregon State Legislature sent out what I believe is a workable, sensible plan that can be implemented all over the country:

"Training in classroom lock-down techniques is valuable, but passive. Classroom lock-down procedures alone fail to protect the children and adults who continue to be murdered before the police arrive.

"To start the discussion, here is a simple, inexpensive way to enable immediate response after the first gunshot in a school is fired. Establish a program of Campus Responders.

"Campus Responders could be two or three responsible adult volunteers in every school (administrators, staff members, teachers or members of the community such as retired law enforcement or military personnel), who are enlisted and encouraged to obtain additional training and regular practice in the use of firearms. Each Campus Responder would have a firearm concealed on their person or locked and concealed in a secure metal gun box bolted in their desks. School district employees with prior military or law enforcement experience would be the initial candidates for this voluntary assignment. No one outside of school and district administration would know the identity of these volunteers.

In short, having armed and trained personnel in every school would enable immediate response with lethal force if and when the lives of our children and teachers were endangered by a mass murderer...

Obama, Reid and all the rest are out to establish a one-party system...theirs.
If we go over the cliff and everyone's taxes go up, it's going to be difficult for them to explain why it was all the Republicans' fault this time, especially since they hold the crux of the power and could have done something to prevent it themselves.
They will blame Repubicans regardless - all the way to the bottom - but convincing Americans with smaller paychecks it was because republicans didn't do everything their way isn't going to cut it.
It might be tough for a while but there might be a silver lining. It might just backfire.
What kind of bizzaro alternate universe do you live in Carol? It's the GOP that's been trying to suppress minority voters and others likely to vote for Democrats. Former head of the Florida Republican party openly admitted in an interview with the Palm Beach Post;
“The Republican Party, the strategists, the consultants, they firmly believe that early voting is bad for Republican Party candidates,” He went on; “It’s done for one reason and one reason only...‘We’ve got to cut down on early voting because early voting is not good for us.’"
That's been the GOP strategy for years with Paul Weyrich, co founder of the Heritage Foundation stated in 1980;
"Now many of our Christians have what I call the 'goo-goo syndrome.' Good government. They want everybody to vote. I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people. They never have been from the beginning of our country, and they are not now. As a matter of fact our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."
The American people know who's at fault nitwit, it's the GOP who have spent the last four years obstructing any legislation that would benefit the economy and wasting time and taxpayer money on ideological legislation that they knew wasn't going anywhere. Those 33 votes to repeal Obamacare cost taxpayers almost $50 million. Now Boehner wants the DOJ to give him taxpayer funds to defend DOMA which denies some of those taxpayers equal rights and protections that are outlined in the Constitution.

No, Republicans did it to themselves.

For two years they have ranted against any tax increases.How evil they were. How they punished the wealthy for being successful. How they kill jobs.

So, what room did they leave themselves to compromise????

None.

So between their own rhetoric & their pledge to Norquist, they f*cked themselves.

They must agree to some tax increases or send us over the cliff.

Funny you should bring this up. Reminded me of something I saw the other night.
That Annual Kennedy Center Honors event was on the other night and presidents always attend sitting next to the honorees.
One of the honorees was a ballerina formerly from Russia. In the telling of her story, it was said she ended up leaving Russia to come to the United States because the Russian government wouldn't allow her to have artistic creativity and dictated what kind of music and dance she had to do.
She said it took away her incentive to dance. She came to America and ended up started the American Ballet Company.
I couldn't help but immediately think of Obama who was sitting just two people away from her.
Taking away incentives is right up his alley.
Really stupid? How has he taken away anybody's incentives?

Clinton already acknowledged the mistake of letting bi_laden get away the first time.

Why do you wish to stay mired in the past of a stupid blame game.
It's NO EXCUSE for America NOT having a BUDGET for the past four years. NONE whatsoever.

Wake up, and then grow up DuhAVey. Sour spilled milk whining is for losers and NUTCASES. Don't be one.
