Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

It seems the dems always want to blame Bush! Obama has had 4 years. It is time he is held accountable.

Borrowing leads to an increasing federal debt. It is true that the debt increased dramatically under George W. Bush. On January 1, 2001, just before President Bush took office, the federal debt stood at $5.6 trillion according to U.S. Treasury figures. When he left office on January 20, 2009, the debt stood at $10.6 trillion, an increase of almost five trillion dollars. As of June 1, 2012, the federal debt was at $15.7 trillion, an increase of $5.1 trillion. The federal debt has increased by as much under President Obama in three years as it did under Bush in eight. CNS News noted in October 2011 that President Obama had added more debt than all other presidents from George Washington to George Herbert Walker Bush.

One POTUS Poll To Rule Them All

See that poll down yonder? This is the first year in the history of this, the greatest (or worst, depending on what color the pie-fight threat level is at this morning) blog in the worldwide internet web, that we've been able to vote on the performance of a Democratic president upon completion of his first term. Think about that. It'll blow your mind if you let it.

Before you cast your dot below, I think it makes sense to briefly review the accomplishments of Barack Hussein Obama circa 2009-2013.

On the plus side: Passed health insurance reform, ordered the raid on bin Laden, saved us from a Great Depression, repealed 'Don’t Ask Don’t Tell' and came out in support of gay marriage, ended the war in Iraq, approved the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, helped boot Ghaddafi, relaxed enforcement of immigration laws on the young'uns, put the Keystone XL pipeline on hold, appointed two women (including the first Hispanic) to the Supreme Court, competently dealt with natural disasters, introduced sweeping and popular anti-gun-violence measures, brewed ale in the White House cellar, sang Al Green and got bench-pressed by a pizza shop owner.

continued....

On the minus side: Launched his secret commie socialist "Kenyagenda," took all our guns, threw all our grandmas off a cliff, created a One World Order, replaced the stars on the American flag with contraceptives, allowed the U.N. in to destroy our golf courses, apologized for America, gave Chrysler to the Chinese as a Kwanzaa gift, stuck his government hands into our Medicare, simultaneously acted both lazy and uppity all the time, knocked down all our churches (but left the mosques), brought procreation to a standstill thanks to his support for gay marriage, told Israel to suck it, spray-painted "Booger" on Saint Ronald Reagan's grave, escalated the wars on Christmas and Easter, made Solyndra the fourth branch of government by executive order, and stole the 2012 election.(Source: House Tea Party Caucus)
So search your conscience and your Wikipedia. Then vote as if the government was recording your choice and putting you on the terrorist watch list if you give Obama anything less than a B+. I'm not saying it is, of course. That's Limbaugh's job.

Vote now and be part of blogging history. When Obama gets his statue on the National Mall, I expect he'll be holding the ACA in one hand...and this poll in the other.

Poll
All things considered, how would you grade President Obama's first term?

A+ 5% 314 votes

A 12% 660 votes

A- 20% 1078 votes

B+ 22% 1161 votes

B 17% 902 votes

B- 9% 521 votes

C+ 3% 192 votes

C- 2% 111 votes

C 2% 142 votes

D+ 0% 48 votes

D 0% 29 votes

F 1% 69 votes

Davidson, a retired software developer in South Carolina, has been predicting for four years that hardcore anti-Obama agitation would dissipate, but it keeps going, driven, he believes, by anti-black sentiment. “I’ve seen more openly racist remarks since the election,” he says. “Before November, they were careful to control the racist language because they were trying to persuade people to vote against him. Now they sort of don’t care.”

Look, RH, you can't admit that Bush started out with a surplus & balanced budget & left with the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown & two quagmire wars.

You can't even admit that there were no wmd's

You can't admit Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant.

I know how much you haste it but Obama has improved the economy. A fact even a blind fool like you cannot deny.

Name one area where Obama has drastically increased spending that was not tied to the economic mess your buddy Bush left.

Bruce Bartlett on Where the Right Went Wrong

February 10, 2012


In this Moyers & Company segment, Bill Moyers talks with conservative economist Bruce Bartlett, who wrote “the bible” for the Reagan Revolution, worked on domestic policy for the Reagan White House, and served as a top treasury official under the first President Bush. Now he’s a heretic in the conservative circles where he once was a star.

Bartlett argues that right-wing tax policies — pushed in part by Grover Norquist and Tea Party activists — are destroying the country’s economic foundation. When he called George W. Bush out as “a pretend conservative” in his book Impostor: Why George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy, Bartlett was fired from his position as a senior fellow at a conservative think tank. His new book is The Benefit and the Burden: Tax Reform — Why We Need It and What It Will Take.

http://vimeo.com/36529531

You Read this book and you will Understand why we are in economical mess and because of 8 years of failed economical policy of the Modern Liberal G.W. Bush with his Compassinate Conservatism which is Modern Liberalism. I will give Bush credit for using the word Conservatism in its proper use and not as political idealogy.

Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy

Bruce Bartlett, a veteran of the Reagan White House and Treasury Department, argues that George W. Bush has betrayed the Reagan legacy by expanding the size and scope of the federal government and letting the federal budget mushroom out of control. He charges that the Medicare expansion of 2003 may be “the worst legislation in history” and raises the question of whether Bill Clinton was a better fiscal conservative than Bush. Bartlett writes as a fiscally conservative Republican and worries that his party will have little future if it loses the trust of voters who want small government and fiscal responsibility. Blogger extraordinaire Andrew Sullivan will comment on Bartlett’s critique and the state of American conservatism.
