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

I agree that Eman and every other right winger on here is a lost cause. My only interest is trying to figure out what makes them tick. It seems to be a combination of faulty information, primarily from FOX, poor reasoning skills, fear, racism and gullibility. I thought they were harmless and pretty much ignored them until Bush was re-elected. Then I decided I better do what I could to marginalize them.
The lost causes are you sheep who believe anything another liberal says. you believing realputz is a perfect example.

Reid has already announced that he will not bring any gun control bill to the Senate floor that cannot pass the House.

Doesn't want to put Democrat Senators facing re-election in 2014 on the record supporting a losing issue.

Everyone on here knows you tried to give Obama credit for those rights, when the NRA had much more to do with it. Give credit, where credit is due, Terry.
Eman you're chasing your tail on this. For months I have pointed out that in four years no one has lost a single gun right while Obama has been president, in fact, many have NEW gun rights. In light of recent abuses, Obama, like many other thinking concerned citizens, has decided that something needs to be done to address this problem. Only an ostrich, the NRA or an idiot would bury his head in the sand and hope that the killings would stop without trying something.

The NRAís new ad is beyond anything weíve seen, in political propaganda terms, in the modern history of this country. The text goes as follows:
Are the presidentís kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but heís just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.
Letís start with the adís broken logic. A, the Obama family has Secret Service protection; B, other American families do not; C, because of this, Obama is an elitist and a hypocrite. Itís pretty ludicrous. Malia and Sasha Obama get lots of things because their father won the presidency. They also have a chauffeur; get to ride on a big fancy airplane free of charge and donít have to endure any TSA-related indignities; live in a beautiful big house rent-free; and so on. By the adís logic, all of these are instances of hypocrisy.
And yet, for pretty much all of modern history until this ad was unveiled yesterday, I donít remember anyone begrudging presidential children their right to the perquisites that come with being the presidentís children. People on the right made fun of Amy Carterís and Chelsea Clintonís physical appearance in tasteless ways. People on the left made fun of the Bush girlsí zest for margaritas and what have you.
But this is a step, or three, beyond that. Itís designed to make people who despise the president despise him even more; and itís designed to make them despise his children, 14 and 11 years old, because they live a cosseted life that you and your kids donít; they are ergo elitist hypocrites just like their father.
Itís not even the logic, though, thatís most disturbing. The main thing here is whatís between the lines; the hot buttons in the pro-gun amygdala the ad is designed to push. Just mentioning the presidentís daughters in an ad full of violent imagery and soundsósilhouettes of assault rifles, profiles of heavily armed soldiers, martial musicóis an invitation to certain viewers to make certain mental connections. Iíll stop there. But itís really a shocking thing.
It is true that a couple recent polls have shown majorities backing the NRA position about putting armed guards in schools, which Obama opposes. This is the point of the ad. Thatís a point that could have been made in any number of ways. But the NRA decided to make it in this particular way. Imagine: A group of people tossed this idea around, kicked its tires, so to speak; someone wrote a script; someone chose the images; someone chose the music; someone in authority said yes, letís do this, letís drag the presidentís daughters into it.
And rememberóthis debate is really just starting in earnest today, as the president unveils his proposals. What will the group prove itself capable of if its back is really up against the wall?

where would you folks wander without your ideology? it's bad enough as it is......
The Secret Service protection is just icing on the cake. The fact is that Sidwell Friends School has a significant armed security force in addition to the Secret Service. Obama chooses to send his children to an elite school with armed security instead of to a D.C. Public School, where the Secret Service could also provide security for his children.

Elitist to the core, back to his own private school education.

We have more hand guns than the next 17 nations combined and still you idiots want more. 3,000 of our children are killed annually and still you want more guns. By the way I just had a nice article published recently about life in rural America and I have talked to many of you gun nuts and most all are terrible ill informed and clueless about responsible gun control.

Yes, this is due to the fact that there are so many sicko racist killers threatening their lives since even before he was elected the first time.

see? you don't attack the issue.

because you have no good answer. you MUST resort to personal attacks.

and if you think that the majority of Americans are going to take that in the way that you nutjobs would like them too, you're sadly mistaken.

and it's cool if we research Mr. Fat Cat Lapierre and get the dirt on his family? and that whole board of directors will be fair game. i bet all of their kids go to public schools. i guess we better find out.....

1) The economy has improved under Obama. He took us from losing 750,000 jobs a month to positive gains in the private sector. He took us from a shrinking economy to a growing one. You have yet to show where any unfunded drastic spending increases went to anything other than addressing the problems he inherited from your hero Bush.
2 Businesses are doing fine. Record profits & record cash.
3) Obama as submitted a budget for every year as required. These budgets are a guideline for Congress to use to write & pass their budgets. Putting the President's budgets up for vote was a playing political games - the only thing your party seems to be doing.
4) Spending???? Subtract the spending on the two Bush wars, subtract the spending created by the Bush recession. Add the revenues lost by the unfunded Bush Tax cuts, Add the revenues lost in the Bush recession, subtract the costs of the unfunded part D to Medicare. I wonder, what spending is left?
5) Millions were sent top the unemployment lines by your buddy George W Bush, and you have the nerve to blame Obama.
This is what I love about right whiners like you. Too f*cking stupid to know who created this mess and instead act like a spoiled brat having a tantrum in the toy aisle in Walmart blaming some one else.
When will you people ever grow up & take responsibility for voting in people like Bush, Cheney, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell - all there when Bush doubled the debt while taking us from a balanced budget to the worst economic condition in 80 years.
My God, we had what you freakin bozos scream about - a balanced budget. WTF happened??? Who VOTED to take us off that path???
1)Unemployment under Bush was 3.9% to 6.9%. Ran between 4% to 5% during most of his 8 years. Highest he ever had was 7.4% in 12/08. Obama's went as high as 10.1% in 10/09 and remained over 9% until 2012.

2)Businesses are going bankrupt regularly and cutting back on employees, raises, etc.

3)Obama has submitted budgets but not a single Republican or Democrat has EVER voted for passing one.

4)Obama has had 4 years to make vast changes to cut spending. He has thrown billions to green companies and research. Most every company has either gone bankrupt or on the verge of doing so. All he does is spend with no plans of reducing it.

5)As indicated in #1, unemployment has become an issue under Obama.

Obama is a failure! Four more years will be devastating for all Americans.
