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

As Tenzing so brilliantly suggested; have all gun owners be licensed and insured. The insurance companies will regulate them ; when you sell a car, you have to transfer the title; do the same with guns. Insurance rates wil be determined based on risk.
Seems that the American people are highly in favor of an assault weapons ban
Republicans are split between Carol and John Galt?
Libertarian wing and religious right?

The "White Country Club" is an oversimplification for the GOP but not by much it seems.

John McCain can show some leadership.

Obama’s New Majority
The politics of division behind the president's nomination of Chuck Hagel
....While Obama declined to do battle for his favorite for State, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, a battle that would have united Republicans, he has chosen to do battle for Chuck Hagel for Defense. As Hagel is a conservative Republican, this has already divided the GOP foreign policy realists from the neocons and the War Party.
If Hagel is confirmed, Republican resistance will have been routed. If Hagel is rejected, the Republican Party will be damaged in the eyes of many for having trashed a patriot, war hero and friend of veterans who put America first and wanted no more unnecessary wars.
Nixon lost the first two battles he waged to put a Southern jurist on the Supreme Court, then castigated the Senate for perpetrating acts of “regional discrimination,” and went on to win all 11 states of the Confederacy in 1972. It’s called winning by losing.
Obama’s selection of White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew for treasury secretary, a former budget director whose intransigence in negotiations antagonized Hill Republicans, looks to be another fight the president is picking to portray the GOP as obstructionists who cannot accept the verdict of 2012.
The president is also taking a no-negotiations stance on the debt ceiling, saying he refuses to pay ransom to the GOP to prevent their destroying the nation’s credit rating. Republicans would do well to walk this terrain before choosing to fight upon it.
The coming gun battle, too, is one in which Obama seems to be seeking a clash where, should he lose on the assault weapons ban, he wins with the public and tars Republicans as lapdogs of the National Rifle Association. And the next time a massacre occurs, as inevitably it will, is there any doubt whom the Democrats will hold responsible?
The president has many weapons in his coming clashes with the congressional Republicans. He has the presidency itself, the bully pulpit. He has forums like the Inaugural Address and State of the Union that Republicans cannot match.
He has a press that deeply dislikes the Republican right and serves as his echo chamber. And while the White House speaks with a single voice, the Republican Party is a cacophony of voices.
With demography moving against the GOP, with more and more Americans becoming dependent upon government, it will take leadership not yet visible to rescue the Republican Party from the fate Barack Hussein Obama has in store for it.

More and more and more americans becoming dependent on govt. says it all , its obamas claim to fame he owns it, he da foodstamp pimp.

What a load? Are you implying Clinton was giving us a load when he said - guaranteed - Saddam would use his arsenals again?
The entire post was Clinton's own words.
Those blinders have to be uncomfortable. I understand party loyalty but when it interferes with perspective, maybe it's time to just take them off.
President Clinton did not invade Iraq

As is the case always, your logic is totally flawed. Clinton conveyed his opinion but didn't start a war based on lies and accusations. The Iraqi war will forever be Bush-Cheneys mistake along with the neglect in Aft. Just by pretending or wishing that the Democrats were also to blame shows that you think it also was a mistake, but given the depth of your fanatacism along with your obvious inability to see the forest for the trees there is little hope of you ever seeing reality.

For anyone to be against responsible gun control and restricting who can buy or own auto weapons have a serious conflict with reality, along with common sense.
how many guns walked in to any building looking to kill anyone?

Waterboarding isn't really torture if it's done to a really bad guy who would kill every single man, woman and child in America if given half the chance. They gave him a cigarette and a nice meal afterwards and found bin Laden to boot.
Torintino's film of gratuitous violence would be more like watching torture to me. But you'd be sitting on the edge of your seat.
Carol found waterbording in the Bible, so it can't be torture

Yes. Jesus had Judas Iscariot waterboarded to determine if he'd betrayed him!!

He said "Let there be waterboarding".

Do you ever read the stupidity you write before posting it??

And you dare to call yourself a Christian?? You don't even understand the meaning of Christianity.

Waterboarding IS tortuere per US Law,not to mention the Geneva Conventions.

Carol supported a criminal regine. Bush is still limited where he can travel, many nations would arrest him if he entered.

Do you ever stop to think why Bush is the invisible man, while other ex-presidents are sought after for appearances??

As far as your horseshit about both sides being equally responsible; nonsense;

Bush was President, he had a Republiclown Congress for 6 out of 8 years, the economy and housing market collapsed on his watch, you can point to NO legislation that the Dems passed in 2007-08.

So quit the bullshit and face the truth. Bush was a disaster for America, one we're still recovering from.

ASll your brainless cheerleading won't change that.

He is the most reviled President in history.

The Repubs didn't even invite him to the Republican Convention!!

So shut up and quit making an ass of yourself.

Speaking of the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998:
The Act declared that it was the Policy of the United States to support "regime change" passing 360-38 in the House and unanimously in the Senate.
President Clinton stated in February 1998:
Iraq admitted, among other things, an offensive biological warfare capability, notably, 5,000 gallons of botulinum, which causes botulism; 2,000 gallons of anthrax; 25 biological-filled Scud warheads; and 157 aerial bombs. And I might say UNSCOM inspectors believe that Iraq has actually greatly understated its production.... Over the past few months, as [the weapons inspectors] have come closer and closer to rooting out Iraq's remaining nuclear capacity, Saddam has undertaken yet another gambit to thwart their ambitions by imposing debilitating conditions on the inspectors and declaring key sites which have still not been inspected off limits.... It is obvious that there is an attempt here, based on the whole history of this operation since 1991, to protect whatever remains of his capacity to produce weapons of mass destruction, the missiles to deliver them, and the feed stocks necessary to produce them. The UNSCOM inspectors believe that Iraq still has stockpiles of chemical and biological munitions, a small force of Scud-type missiles, and the capacity to restart quickly its production program and build many, many more weapons.... Now, let's imagine the future. What if he fails to comply and we fail to act, or we take some ambiguous third route, which gives him yet more opportunities to develop this program of weapons of mass destruction and continue to press for the release of the sanctions and continue to ignore the solemn commitments that he made? Well, he will conclude that the international community has lost its will. He will then conclude that he can go right on and do more to rebuild an arsenal of devastating destruction. And some day, some way, I guarantee you he'll use the arsenal."
Nothing had changed in 2003...except 9/11.
Clinton could have taken Powell's place at the UN.
I know you're an idiot, but even you shouold be able to see a difference between Clinton's no fly zone and tough talk towards Iraq and a military invasion under false pretenses.

They went in for WMD's. The WMD's were non-existant.

You can make up all the stories about the alleged movement of WMD's but you can't provide any proof.

Nor could Bush, which is why he admitted there were no WMD's/ DUH

WMD's being his justification for war, that means it was a war of mistake.

And he lost it, signing a peace treaty favoring Iraq, cmmitting to a 'date certain' to withdraw US forces.

You lose, nitwit.

I think obama is a very competent president.but no much more than another republican or democrat candidate...i believe that the only reason which has lead obama to the rank of president is his skin color and his ethnicity.the major part of the votation are those of minorities.he received many votes from them because he s a model for them.furtjermore obama would have been old and white during the elecyion i m quite sure he would have got a quarter less votes and wouldn t have been president today.

Well, perhaps he'll roll over on his gun and blow his own brains out.

NRA spits on the graves of Newtown massacre victims with release of mobile shoot-'em-up app for iPhone, iPad

National Rifle Association launched free game that could allow children to play target practice and pay to unlock more powerful weapons, including an assault weapon like the one used by Adam Lanza to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.

Suicides are way up in the US military it was announced yesterday, Admiral Mullens of the Jint Chiefs announced they had reached epic proportions throughout the armed services.

How will they ever manage to collect our guns if they're all dead? What's more, who will work the farms, build the road and bridges and provide crowd control this July 4th? What better way to kill Americans than at a fireworks celebration.
