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

The war congress approved is absolutely not the war they got is it Carol? Twenty five billion slam dunk, the Iraqi people will be throwing rose petals.
The war was off the books__if Rumsfeld has asked for $100 billion, the war would have had to be on the books and congress would have very likely said no. The key was emergency funding__BushCo gamed congress__once we were there, we were there too late now eh? That's why some in congress later said that they were for it before they were against it Carol, they came to realize that BushCo lied the nation into an extremely expensive long term war.
You're lost on the subject__give it a rest.
Sorry, but you seem more lost than me.

Nothing I posted before warranted a response of "bullshyte".

It was the Iraq War that caused most liberals to go off the deep end.

I'm determined to put things into a clearer perspective for them.

Mainly, that democrats believed Saddam a threat long before 9/11 and most democrats gave Bush permission to take him down.

Anyone can object to the war - but facts are still facts, nevertheless.

When you say, "most people" are you referring to the four of you who are left or is it some grander allusion?

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???

Yeah that's way there are so many empty store fronts. That's why there are record number of 'Going Out Of Business' signs. The after Christmas closings are just getting ramped up. A lot of big name brands are going to disappear forever.

I am ecstatic that Obama is taking action to reign in out of control gun abuse! What I have asked for months is for anyone to name ONE gun right they no longer have that they lost as a result of Obama's term as president. Still zero. In fact I have MORE gun rights, I can now conceal carry in National Parks and there is conceal carry reciprocity with just about every state between Michigan and Texas. As a gun owner I am embarrassed at the position the NRA has taken. It makes all gun owners look like idiots, like you.

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.

Again your facts are wrong, Most Democrats voted against the war while most all Republicans voted for. Why you continue to pursue the Iraqi war is proof positive that you are fanatical in nature and well aware that it was a huge mistake. Again you seem to have no concern for those that were sacrificed, which one would think would show far more patriotism for our nation, why is that?

This should bring violent crime to a screeching halt:

The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence.

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

11. Nominate an ATF director.

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.

14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.(If a doctor asks you about your guns, ask him about his.)

17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

People wore crosses around their necks in Iraq?

When?

Christians worshipped at the corner church in Iraq?

Really?

That was when Saddam was president! Try that today. Your head will be cut off.

BIGGEST RIP OFF EVER?

TRILLIONS!

bomb it, rebuild it. Who got paid both ways?

Iraq has it's own fortune. They would have delivered Saddam for free. But then you wouldn't owe today!

SUCKER!

TRILLIONS RIPPED OFF!! called tax cuts? called war?

Blood and TRILLIONS from the people....... your people? No. Not you......cowards!
