Barack Obama, our next President

One more time you prove yourself to be a liberal loon. You are unable to justify the BS you spread so you tell those who call you out so you want them to STFU. You are a coward. Post something of merit and you will not be on defense all the time.

You and Realtime aren't talking about the same Andrew Cuomo who was secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Clinton admnistration? The same Andrew Cuomo who couldn’t wait to get in front of the cameras at press conferences to say how he was encouraging the federally chartered mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to lower their standards so every American can enjoy having a house? The same Andrew Cuomo who started the first threads to unravel leading to this economic crisis?
THAT Andrew Cuomo??
You guys really blow my friggin' mind sometimes.
When Andrew Cuomo left HUD 86% of the high risk mortgages were current which, was at that time, just slightly lower than "all" conventional mortgages.

Carol, you're competing in the wrong club and at the wrong level, some posting here have compression skills and memories. You have neither__sucks to be you.

Was it his idea to bundle subprime mortgages and sell them? Did he invent the credit default swap?
BTW, moron, GWB said the same thing about Freddie and Fannie. Hell, GWB even had taxpayers foot the bill for folks's downpayment.

Obama won in a landslide in the only contest that counts—the competition for the 270 electors needed to win the presidency. Obama has won 303 electoral votes so far and will get beyond 330 if his lead in Florida is sustained by the final count. The Electoral College is of course heavily biased to favor smaller states with far less population, so the president actually triumphed despite the odds against him.
Why are white guys so reluctant to give him credit? Because the 2012 election was a profound watershed in the life of the nation. Whatever else President Obama accomplishes or fails to accomplish in his second term, his re-election is in some ways even more significant than his initial triumph in 2008. He will be forever remembered as the president who opened America to a different future—more promising and fulfilling, more just and democratic than anything achieved in the American past.
It may be easier to see this if you ask: Who lost? Forget Romney and the Republicans. The real loser was the bitter legacy of “white supremacy.” That poisonous prejudice has endured in political reality and the national culture for two centuries. It still does, though it is now cultivated most zealously only by white Southerners who took over the party of Abraham Lincoln (who surely weeps for his Grand Old Party).
In 2012, white supremacy not only lost the election. It was a crucial factor in explaining how Obama won. Good for Obama and really good for the American people. Whose “status quo” are these pundits clinging to forlornly? Maybe their own. They have typically belittled the struggles by excluded minorities as “identity politics.” Well, yes, these people intend to be identified as citizens, fully endowed with the rights any other American enjoy. This election confirmed their goal.
The other big losers of course are the money guys—the billionaires who thought they could buy our election. No doubt they will try again, but now we know we can defeat them with old-fashioned door-to-door people-first politics. Organized money loses to organized people—that is the formula for our future politics. One hopes Supreme Court justices are reading the election returns. Those justices who regularly vote with the billionaires may ask themselves whether their ‘status quo” is in trouble too.

Another Liberal/Democrat Lie Expose!!

When the ‘Bush Tax Cuts’ were passed Liberals/Democrats told us they were only for the Wealthy!!

Well today “I just wanted to thank so many on the other side “Liberals/Democrats” after all these years for finally acknowledging publicly that 98 percent of the Bush tax cuts helped the middle class."

I know you're about as ignorant of the role the Constitution plays in the authority structure of the government of the United States as Obama is, so I'll help you. Here's a key point that cannot be violated:
All laws are subordinate to the Constitution.
Perhaps you need someone to help you define the English word "all". After all, we all know Democrats have a problem defining words in the English language, like the word "is".
Let's go over some facts:
The Patriot Act is not part of the Constitution.
Therefore, it is subordinate to the Constitution.
Because the Patriot Act is subordinate to the Constitution, then it is impossible for the Patriot Act to supersede the Constitution.
Now, repeat after me:
"All laws are subordinate to the Constitution"
... in a Constitutional Republic like the United States, that is.
In a fascist dictatorship, this isn't true.
So, judging from what you wrote, you are under the impression that we live in a country governed by a fascist dictatorship, right?

The constitution is only one of many things "nutsucker" is ignorant about. Common sense is another. He is simply a troll with nary a thought of his own. "nutsucker" has just one thing he does well, run of his mouth.

Obama once again turns to someone other than himself to negotiate/close deal!! Obama display arrogance leaves town without signing bill!! Once again will Obama delegate his responsibility to “auto-pen to sign bill into law?”
Oh, no he didn't.

Did he really leave town before signing that bill into law?

Did it ever occur to you that those wars cost something? That Bush didn't put them on the books? You rightwingers are so easily duped it's incredible.
"silly"
I expect no answers from you on my post. Why do you continually bash Bush on his spending that indeed increase the deficit, but at the same time give president nobama a pass when is expenditures will be more than every chief executive who preceded him? A little bit of hypocrisy on your part?
I know, your stock response, "It' Bush's fault".
