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

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-one percent (41%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends).

That 57% rating is up 11 points from a year ago. It's also up nine points from the last day of 2010 and up 11 points from the last day of 2009.

It would appear the people love their president.

Really? And what happened to that charade?
Looks to me like the Democrats keep moving the goal posts. The end result of what the Democrats proposed had no... that's NADA, NONE, ZERO cuts in government spending.
And, if that isn't enough insanity for you, the taxes increased will only generate 600 billion dollars over 10 years. Let's compare that to the 1.3+ trillion dollar annual deficit.
1.3+ trillion times 10 years minum 600 billion equals... no goddam effect at all. The 16.5 trillion dollar debt just about doubles.
An idiot knows that government will collapse.
Republicans wanted 2.5 - 3 & Obama put 4 trillion in deficit reduction on the table.

The Republicans said no because of tax rate increases on the wealthy.

So is your point that the deficit no longer needs reduced? Or is your point that only the wealthy should bear the burden of reducing it? Or is your point that you simply want to whine about Obama?
Enough is enough...

We cannot afford all the goodies...

Real talks about what spending must go is enevitable...

Homer would like to see 4 trillion in spending cuts and taxes raised on the wealthiest.

A balanced approach.

The rich have made trillions on the backs of the middle class and at the expense of massive debt to our government, time to pay the piper.

LOS ANGELES (AP)— Hugh Hefner's celebrating the new year as a married man once again.

The 86-year-old Playboy magazine founder exchanged vows with his "runaway bride," Crystal Harris, at a private Playboy Mansion ceremony on New Year's Eve. Harris, a 26-year-old "Playmate of the Month" in 2009, broke off a previous engagement to Hefner just before they were to be married in 2011.

Playboy said on Tuesday that the couple celebrated at a New Year's Eve party at the mansion with guests that included comic Jon Lovitz, Gene Simmons of KISS and baseball star Evan Longoria.

The bride wore a strapless gown in soft pink, Hefner a black tux. Hefner's been married twice before but lived the single life between 1959 and 1989.

Carol, quit being such a liar.
Show me where Obama said he was going to decimate the military.
You really are pathetic.
Gut it...castrate it...cripple it...you can pick another word.

Automatic spending cuts called “budget sequestration” reduces defense spending by $500 billion over the next 10 years with $50 billion in cuts planned to take effect in January 2013 on top of almost $500 billion in long-term military cuts already proposed by President Obama. In total, nearly $1 trillion in cuts.

Radically reducing the size of the armed forces, targeting retirement benefits for veterans and higher health care fees and co-pays is not only a breach of contract but a major deterrent to recruitment.

If you read the news yesterday, Al-Qaeda has taken over a large area in Mali to plan a "global jihad".

They couldn't be happier.

bullshit.
Nobody has answered these questions.
What was the name the person we know as "Obama" using at Occidental College?
What was the name the person we know as "Obama" using at Columbia where he enrolled but nobody in his class ever met him, and he is not even mentioned in the class he was supposedly graduating with in the year book?
When did "Barry Soetoro" who entered the United States as a citizen of Indonesia become "Barack Obama"?
And, how do you know this? Perhaps you have information the entire rest of the world has not been allowed to see....
Because in 1982 the unknown powers decided it would be easier to be elected President with the name Barack Hussein Obama Jr.. It's all a BIG conspiracy.

Nothing happened to that offer because there was no consensus on the Republican side to negotiate ANYTHING. They only agreed on two goals, protect the wealthy and tank Obama.
By any measure the wealthiest Americans have amassed more of the nations treasure. At the same time the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is shrinking. This is a sign to rational thinkers that the wealthy need to contribute a larger share in reducing the deficit.
Hi fellow goober doob. Yes, when we were in our 60's back in the decade of greed when Clinton was president, we had tons of mergers, layoffs and CEO bonus growth that was sky high.

Remember the Marc Rich Pardon?

How about Vernon Jordan, Jr? He was also rich and a lawyer.

Hypocrute on, man...

You really should stop wearing those lugnuts from your Model T Ford for your ear earrings. The rust from inbetween your ears is corroding them. While you're at it, cut the hair growing out of your ears, Bozo.

Those rose colored glasses look pretty cool though. You will never lose them! Hypocrite.

... idiot.
I did start & have my own company.

Why didn't you?

I have also been President & CEO of a manufacturing company I did not own.

I've made those decisions.

My compensation was taxed as regular income as it should be.

so what? No one gives a rat's ass of your opinion of a particular newspaper.
I notice you offer nothing to refute their claims that Clinton never had a budget surplus?
Why?
Because you can't.
It's really fun to run into someone as stupid as you!!

No surpluses, eh?? No wonder your mother disowned you:

"Clinton presided over the longest period of peacetime economic expansion in American history. The Congressional Budget Office reported budget surpluses of $69 billion in 1998,$126 billion in 1999, and $236 billion in 2000, during the last three years of Clinton's presidency. At the end of his presidency, Clinton moved to New York and helped his wife win election to the U.S. Senate there.""

That's what you get when you let FAUX rot your brain!! You'll end up as witless as Carol!!

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.
So are airline pilots. I guess you think a person should be able to buy a license & fly jetliners across the country.

Are you saying all owners of assault-like rifles have extensive training????

Of curse not, so the idea of a few does not justify everyone toting an assault-like rifle with a 100 round clip.

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?
Obama did not attend Occidental as Barry Soetero. That is a blatant lie.

Obama was born with the name Barack Obama. A name he used to attend schools in Hawaii & the US.

To say otherwise is prof on just how uninformed you are.

Probably from inhaling too many diesel fumes sitting around oil drilling rigs waiting to examine the cuttings for show.

Speaking of which, I am sick & tired of my tax money subsidizing your salary. What's the matter, can't make it on our own???
