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 ...

Where is that nj so-called raider? Didn't show up for work this morning? I'm betting you still expect to be paid, though. I have a question for you:

Nj raider 1 wrote: <quoted text> 1st of all you or no one else don't treat me like anything. Respect is not a treatment. Your post is stupid being your posting on a forum about a black president. It's obvious you still think were in the 1800s. Who's the ones pointing the finger & making excuses about why the blackman was reelected? We're laughing because just as Barack Obama rose like a black rose from the concrete, so shall another black rose rise to prominence!. Barack Obama is just the start of what is to come. Its a beautiful thing to see thee younger white generation siding with the black people. We're just 13% of this country's population so it was your children that truly elected & reelected Americas black president! Black leader of the nation! Black commander & chief! We have the bask now & dont plan on giving it back anytime son(what did you call ya'll (whiteylol!)

I hate to be the one pointing this out to you, but Obama isn't black. He's a mulatto.
I'm wondering why a person who is obviously a mulatto is called "black" by you? Why don't you call him white?
I'd really like to see your answer on this.

The Democrats insist the deficit not be reduced. You'd know that if you kept up with events.

The so-called "wealthy" don't even have enough in earnings to pay for Obama's pipedream of a government if you taxed them at 100 percent and made them destitute.

So, the question still remains:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Meanwhile, wealthy Dems have been and continue to avoid paying more taxes themselves. But its ok as long as they aren't conservative or named Mitt Romney. The name of the game is:

Elitism. Exemptions. Evasion.

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?
http://www.redstate.com/2013/01/02/is-there-r...
Thanks for making our point. You are correct. Boehner is a Democrat wearing a Republican costume.
Yes, we agree with you. We need to change the Speaker.
Nancy Pelosi requested Boehner force the 112th congress to select the leadership for the 113th Congress so the Democrats could continue to get away with everything and collapse our government under the burden of an unpayable debt. Boehner had no problem with this bullshit.
We definitely need a new Speaker. Thanks for pointing this out, dufus.

One Democrat, Obama, put reducing entitlement spending on the table months ago. You'd know this if you watched anything but FOX News. That is where some of the money would come.
Nobody, except maybe FOX News, suggested that the wealthy bear ALL the burden of reducing the deficit. What rational thinking people have asked is that the wealthy do their SHARE.

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.

The polarized House approved the measure, unchanged, after House Republican leaders beat back a day-long insurrection within their ranks fueled by conservative anger at the bill’s lack of spending cuts. A final vote was expected late Tuesday evening.

“They’re crazy, but they’re not that batshit crazy,” Democratic Representative Alcee Hastings told reporters as the Republican plan came into focus.

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.

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.

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.

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.

At least somebody believes in the sanctity of marriage.

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.

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.
