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

Congress put conditions on their authorization which included;
Before employing military force in Iraq, the resolution requires that the president first determine that continued diplomatic efforts "or other peaceful means alone," will not "adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq or is not likely to lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq."

Did Bush adhere to that? No, UN inspectors were forced to leave before they could finish their job, not by Sadaam but Bush.
The Kurdish massacre occurred in March of 1988 during the Regan administration. What did Reagan do about it? Nothing except trying to blame it on Iran. Sadaam was our guy in the region. After the first gulf war "no fly" zones were established in the north and south and Sadaam no longer had any influence in the Kurdish region.
You right wingers keep bringing up Viet Nam but forget that it was Democratic liberals who rebelled against Johnson and forced him from office.
It was the Nixon campaign that scuttled the peace talks convincing the South Vietnamese that they could give them a better deal than the Johnson administration. In the end Nixon dragged the war on for four more years and South Vietnam ceased to exist.

No American lives were lost in Libya moron, civilians casualties came largely from government forces and would have been worse without intervention. Our role was logistical and supportive and well within our treaty obligations with NATO.
Peace idiot.
As usual, weak, blockhead libtard. Enjoy your crappy job & stay mad at the rest of the country because of your sorry situation. Good libtard!

Happy New Year!

Bush had budgets.
We went from a balanced one to doubling the debt & creating the worse recession in 80 years.
Wow, those budgets really helped.
As long as you keep repeating that...

We never had a surplus under Clinton. Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble. It then burst. The Republican Congress led the way to a more balanced budget. The unraveling of the housing mortgage loan crisis began under Clinton. We were hit by 9/11 under Bush disrupting the economy. Democrats also supported the war effort. Democrats ignored the warnings by Bush and Bernacke of an impending housing market crisis as much, if not more, than Republicans.

...I'm going to keep repeating this.

Your oversimplified version is much too understated and consistently inaccurate.

Happy New Year everyone.

At least all our taxes won't go up this year.

Hopefully, the Democrat Senate won't kick the budget can down the road another four years and spend us into oblivion in the meantime.

Thankfully, another election is around the corner.

Let's hope Americans will get it right this time and elect a Republican Congress to finish out this two-term presidential fluke.

If there's even a glimmer of a chance Americans will wake up to the reality that Democrats are looking out for the future of the Democrat Party and not the country's, there's hope.

...and the beat goes on.

Not enough experience to take two ideas and put them together,i guess for the best possible outcome....It wasn't a secret when he stepped into the shit of government that everything was crashing down and having a chance to gain control of a major automaker AND using that control to bring jobs back to Americans and REALLY start fixing the economy. What a simple and obvious common sense thing to do. What a fucking dipshit.
I wonder why Obama didn't come up with that idea???? Wait a minute...... he did come up with that idea!!!!!!!!!! Wonder why it never became some type of law?????????? Wait a minute.......... here's why:
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

I'm not going to guess at your job or how much you make or bring home, but I will say your the one mad that The President was reelected. So mad that all I see in your posts are blatant lies. If all the non conservatives on here jobs are so crappy, why are you the one mad? All you conservatives do is whine. So much that I'm drunk off your thoughts & it takes alot of wine to get a person drunk! Ya'll representatives are so stupid in going against the will of the people & driving us off the fiscal cliff. I agree it was just what Barack wanted so once they cut bush tax cuts & the president re implements them they will be known as the Obama tax cuts. Kinda smart you gotta admit!

For the umpteenth time, Bush was promoting home ownership.

When will you quit lying about this?

The only thing Bush did was try a power grab to put Fannie & Freddie under White House control to satisfy his banking buddies.

Clinton + Congress = balanced budget

Bush + same Congress = deficit & debt

It just occurred to me that the loyalists in the 1770s probably criticized the original Tea Party participants in Boston just as much as modern-day loyalists criticized the Tea Party movement across the nation.

Ironic, isn't it, that the loyalists back then supported more taxation and were on the wrong side of history too?

<quoted text>
Since WHEN do House Reps consider actual issues such as this? You know full well exactly what they will do on 1/2/2013 - vote for a fake tax cut thereby approving a tax hike. Do you think there is any other ending to this game?
Who knows what they will do. Boehner is a Democrat. So, he will do whatever he can to prevent any cuts to government spending.
There is no reason to hurry this. This can be addressed at any time and any agreement can be made retroactive to the first of the year.
There is some hidden reason why everyone is being led to believe this is an emergency. This is just like when ObamaKare was rushed through without anyone even reading it. Even today nobody knows what's in that law.
The government doesn't have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem. Cut govenment spending first. After government spending is cut, then let's talk about revenue issues... like increasing the number of people paying income taxes.
Any country that lets half the population mooch off the other half won't last long.
The only way to fix the insanity in our government is to have everyone dependent on their decisions. EVERYONE should have to pay income taxes. If everyone paid income taxes, the wouldn't be voting for a bunch of criminal frauds flying a Marxist flag, that's for sure.
