Obama is soon going to be feeling the pressure of the debt ceiling and reforms in entitlements.
Americans who voted for Obama will then see the proof in the pudding. Did they vote for a leader? Or not?
Think about the logic of criticizing Obama for not being a leader and then try to name the leader of the Republican party. There is none. America knew that in November. You right wing crazies all thought etch-a-sketch Romney was going to be able to take multiple positions on every issue and keep all of your tribes happy. As soon as we have the chance to vote out the lunatics that slipped in under the teabagger label we can bring sanity back to the House of Reps.

Please change your name.
You re embarrassing the Navy.
When Obama's mother remarried he used his step father's last name while living in Indonesia.
But hey, I guess you were too uninformed to know it.
Like most right whiners posting here.
We know that. We also know he came to the United States as "Barry Soetoro". We know he enrolled at Occidental College where he was a poor student as "Barry Soetoro".
We don't know what name he used when he enrolled for classes he never attended at Columbia. We don't know how Columbia validated that he was the same person who was a poor student and had the name "Barry Soetoro" at Occidental College, if he was using an alias. We don't know the name on the diploma he supposedly received from Columbia after never attending classes.
Then, presto-change-o, there is this Barack Obama that appears out of nowhere at Harvard.
The bottom line is, we don't even know the name of the prosident of the United States.

How do you know what his name is?

Well Americans dang sure ARE not OVER paying...
I'd love to hear which bracket you'd take the deductions away from first with your magic liberal limp wrist wand...
I'd start with loopholes like the one where Mitt Romney took his CEO compensation as investment income & paid only 15%.

This is what I love about you right whiners. You do everything to protect the wealthy while wanting to cut programs like medicare social security, veteran benefits, etc.

let the whining begin.

Is There Really a Difference Anymore?

..........

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No questions, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.[Animal Farm, last paragraph]

..........

Republicans were ushered into power in 2010, buoyed by limited government populism spawned by the Tea Party. They publicized a document called the GOP Pledge to America. You should take some time to read it. There are many interesting declarations in there. You’ll find lectures about the need to let the legislative process work; about the 3 day legislative transparency rule; about not spending most of the time on banal suspension bills; about cutting taxes; about getting rid of Obamacare; about cutting spending. Interesting indeed.

Republicans began their session in 2011 promising an immediate cut of $100 billion in spending. They lied. Ultimately, they only cut $352 million off of the FY 2011 budget. How fitting it is for them to end the 112th Congress by increasing spending by $330 billion…along with hiking taxes, letting every aspect of the Obamacare tax hikes slide, and obviating our leverage with the debt ceiling by agreeing to a sequester trap to coincide with the next battle.

Yes, we know…wait until March, and they will really extract concessions from Obama…just like they did $2.1 trillion ago. Except that they have already said they will never “allow us to default,” and they have communicated that fact to the Democrats.

Here is a spreadsheet of the voting tally from the Madison Performance Index. Take a look at it, and try to decipher the pigs from the men. Many of those who got us into this mess in the first place, including Cantor and McCarthy, joined the free ride and gave out hall passes to vote no.

Parting question: will Cantor and McCarthy purge themselves from their committee assignments for voting against the leadership scorecard?

Keep adjusting that glare visor duhmmy, you might get some rational input to compute with then.
We have lots of domestic pipelines, you idiot.

The Keystone pipeline is a mechanism for Canada to get their oil to a port.

It did not get approval because Republicans forced a decision before the environmental studies were not yet completed.

The Southern portion is being built & Texans are madder than hell. They aren't using the amount of US steel they said & employed little local labor.

Police go through extensive training.
"any" civilian does not.
Carrying a weapon in the trunk is not patrolling the street with them.
Under normal conditions, the State Police do not exit their vehicle carrying an assault-like rifle.
First, and foremost, police are civillians. We have a civillian government by design. Therefore, police, being part of that government, are no different than any other civillian. The Constitution does not define separate classes of civillians with separate rights for each.

Repeat after me: "Police are civillians, part of a Constitutionally-directed civillian government."

"All" police don't go through "exhaustive" training.
As for just one civillian, I have more "exhaustive" training than 99 percent of the police. And, I'm not the only one. Many people received the same "exhaustive" training as I.

Perhaps you can also quit you rjob working for someone who makes a business run and start your own company and generate thousands of jobs for people who just want to work for a living, and make the decisions that keep that company alive so they will ahve a job tomorrow.
