Barack Obama, our next President

But it's funny how Romney had similar bloodlines, but those same cons were willing to endorse him of their own free will.

Bob Woodward's "Who Is Barack Obama?"

As for the brinksmanship currently going on with Congress, Woodward criticized the fiscal cliff process as a “giant mistake.”

“It’s no way to govern,” he said.“It is a giant mistake to have all of this in a pool of ambiguity … it truly is a stalemate.”

The veteran Washington journalist added that regardless of what happens with the negotiations, Obama will ultimately take responsibility for any resulting economic fallout.

“This is the Obama era, it is the president’s economy,” he said.“Speaker Boehner’s an important player and this is significant, but it is Obama’s job to lead and define — so if there negative consequences here, particularly in the economy, it is going to be,‘In the Obama era, things didn’t get fixed.’”

ALL Presidents have been Liberal more so then they have ever been conservatives. Even the great Reagan had increased the nations debt by 186% and had giving amnesty to millions of illegals and changed the Earned Income Tax Credit (reason 20% of the 47% pay no Fed tax) by the time he left office.

This from 2010.
Woodward has been critical of Obama in the past.

In what has become a rite of passage of sorts for American commanders in chief, President Obama is now the subject of a Bob Woodward book. True to form for the veteran Washington Post reporter,

Obama’s Wars

dishes some headline-worthy scoops, and news organizations have dutifully spent Wednesday kicking around the details of presidential deliberations on whether and how to escalate the war in Afghanistan. When Bill Clinton read Woodward’s tome on his presidency, The Agenda, he “stewed for months about what he considered distortion by Woodward and betrayal by his top aides,” Politico notes. Will the new book, which seems sure to sell hundreds of thousands of copies, do damage to Obama and the flagging midterm campaigns of Democrats?

President Obama can Not run for reelection thanks to the 22nd Amendment, passed by the GOP after FDR's four long, for the republicans, terms.

To save the country. Apparently, the country didn't want to be saved but will find out it's too late eventually.

wow. you really are looney, son!
Georges Sada, a former Iraqi general, revealed the charges detailed in his new book, "Saddam’s Secrets.”

"Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming," Sada said. "They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”

The former Iraqi general said Special Republican Guard brigades loaded WMDs onto two converted Iraqi Airways planes.

He said he was told of the operation by two pilots that helped transport the materials. Sada says 56 flights were made and were accompanied by a ground convoy of trucks carrying similar materials.

The flights attracted scant international attention because they occurred at the same time that Iraq was sending relief to Syria for a dam collapse.

Sada’s claims echoed those made by Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s top general in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Yaalon told the Sun in December that Saddam had "transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.”

Romney defended his choice of words by saying the phrase "self deportation" means more strictly enforcing immigration laws until illegal immigrants are unable to find work and voluntarily leave the United States.

That doesn't sound so crazy to me.
