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

Okay, now the real truth.
The House intended to streamline Federal Emergency Management Agency regulations allowing FEMA to make repairs that would be less expensive than traditional agency trailers.
A $60.4 billion package passed by the Senate in December included $188 million for an Amtrak expansion project with an indirect link to Sandy.
The Senate bill was overpriced, full of pork and swelled the federal deficit because other government programs weren't being cut to cover the costs of the legislation.
(other programs weren't being cut to cover the cost?)
It had to go back to the Senate for approval since the old bill expired January 3.
"An emergency funding bill should focus on the emergency needs of the victims, not the needs of politicians," said Indiana Sen. Dan Coats, the senior Republican on Senate Appropriations subcommittee on homeland security. "Loading up a massive $60.4 billion package with unrelated projects and earmarks for other states is not the way we should use taxpayer dollars."
Loading up massive spending packages with unrelated projects and earmarks is customarily the way Democrats waste our tax dollars.
Republicans in the House voted to pass the bill that was on the table with only 67 holding out for a less expensive alternative.
And since Republicans control the House, you have no argument.
The same one that was clueless about the last elections??

Great reference.

Please point our th epork in the Bill and who put it there.

I've looked at the original Bill, the # of which you should be easily able to find, being the brilliant economist you are!! LOL

Tell me how much was pork, and which Senator placed it there.

You'll find it wasn't Democrats, nitwit.

Mitch McConnell loaded the Bill up, knowing it would be rejected by the House.

Just more obstructionism from the losers.

And you're too stuid to know that.

Here's a more probable example of a government gone wrong:
Deuteronomy 13:7 If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or your intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your father have not known, gods of any other nation, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity on him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the lord, your god.
Republicans want the Bible taught in our schools.

The next big sell out of America by them is the new found natural gas. In Aug of 2012 they filed for a permit to build the largest LPG port in America. All this new gas that was suppose to get us off import oil all together will be shipped to China.
Drill Baby Drill and Frack Baby Frack helped NO one in America. We were sold out by big oil.
WASHINGTON — The Republican Senate blocked an effort to end billions of dollars in tax breaks for the oil industry, brushing aside President Obama's argument that the five big oil companies were doing "just fine" while consumers were struggling with painfully high gasoline prices.

OldRaider also insinuated (over and over and over) before the elction that Obama was not going after gun rights. He was wrong (or lying) then too.

The current Democrat Senate would not convict Obama on impeachment regardless of his actions.
First off, Obama hasn't committed a impeachable act.

Other than your racist hatred for him, he hasn't had anything close to the scandals of Bush or Reagan.

You lose!!

Remember, the right wing nitwits tried the same with Clinton, all it did was ensure his second term and the highest popularity ratings for any President!!

Clonton is still a Rock Star, it's obvious Clinton beat the Republliclowns like the rabid dogs they are.

And Hillary will be your next President!!

How do you feel about John Brennan for CIA director?
Interesting guy, plenty smart and fluent in Arabic. I also like Hagel for Defense and Kerry for State.

The CIA is long overdue for some serious revamping__the internet exposes that agency's every move. The fkn contractors are coming back from their, cough, secret missions and writing books__creating websites and doing speaking tours. The deceased contractors families are going on FOX and blaming the POTUS for putting their loved ones in danger__LMAO.

Fluent in Arabic is not easy for an American to do, the fkn language defies all known logic. It's dark age jibberish.

There's no secret. No one loves the idea of drones, however, they have been pretty effective. Would Mitt Romney or any future republican president abolish the use of drones? Or is it that you just have another excuse to whine about the President?
Romney was prepared to deal with the Pakistani government playing both sides of the field and reevaluating their loyalities:

“The U.S. is well aware of terrorists' presence in Pakistan and its border regions and this is a threat to Pakistan and Afghanistan…the situation in Pakistan is an indicator that terrorists are not only attacking Afghanistan but are causing lots of troubles for Pakistan too.”

Romney believed elements of threats originated from Pakistan.

I don't recall Obama saying much about the corruption in Pakistan or consequences if they choose to go against us. But maybe you do.

As far as Afghanistan, in New Hampshire 2011, Romney said this:

“I want those troops to come home based upon not politics, not based upon economics, but instead based upon the conditions on the ground determined by the generals … But I also think we have learned that our troops should not go off and try to fight a war of independence for another nation. Only the Afghanis can win Afghanistan’s independence from the Taliban.”

...Sounds more like what a democrat would say if a conservative president had continued the war this long, doesn't it?

On the subject of drones, Romney agreed that any and all technology should be used to combat this enemy. However, he went on to say:

"We’re also going to have to have a far more effective and comprehensive strategy to help move the world away from terror and Islamic extremism. We haven’t done that yet...You look at the record of the last four years and say is Iran closer to a bomb? Yes. Is the Middle East in tumult? Yes. Is al-Qaida on the run? No. Are Israel and the Palestinians closer to reaching a peace agreement? No, they haven’t had talks in two years. We have not seen the progress we need to have, and I’m convinced that with strong leadership and an effort to build a strategy based upon helping these nations reject extremism, we can see the kind of peace and prosperity the world demands."

Has Obama shown strong leadership in an effort to build a strategy based upon helping nations reject extremism? Just curious.
