Barack Obama, our next President

I bet when your welfare to work (not to work) checks run dry on you, and Obama care isn't all you thought it would be, that you
will still be thinking this way after 4 more years of nothing. Shouldn't you be in Washington DC right now showing your support for Obama? What? Obama care didn't send a car to transport you there? Well, maybe next time. Oh, that's right, Obama only has 4 more years in office thank God. LOL

This President Can—and Must—Claim a Mandate to Govern

With his second inauguration, Barack Obama will become the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to renew his tenure after having won more than 51 percent of the vote in two consecutive elections.

More importantly, in a political sense, he will be the first Democrat since Franklin Delano Roosevelt to have won mandates from the majority of the American people in two consecutive elections.

This is the perspective that Americans should bring to the inaugural festivities. We should expect a great deal from Barack Obama. Despite four years of battering by Fox and Limbaugh and the Tea Party and Mitch McConnell, he has been re-elected with a higher percentage of the popular vote than John Kennedy in 1960, Richard Nixon in 1968, Jimmy Carter in 1976, Ronald Reagan in 1980, Bill Clinton in 1992 or 1996 or George Bush in 2000 or 2004.

Obama’s mandate extends beyond himself. His party has increased its Senate majority and Democrats earned 1.4 million more votes in House races than Republicans. Gerrymandering and money kept Republican control of the House, but that opposition party is in such disarray that the president really does have an opening to make something of his mandate

Obama must seize that opportunity as an essential part of making the case for bold executive orders and a bold legislative agenda that will bring not just the hope but the change he promised in what now seems like a very distant 2008 campaign. The president has in the transition period since the 2012 election displayed a willingness to push harder, to go bigger, and it has yielded significant progress not just on gun-safety issues but in the long struggle against the Republican austerity agenda that makes a diety of deregulating away consumer and environmental protections, tearing the social-safety net and cutting taxes for wealthy campaign donors.

You forget to mention that Bin Ladin should have been taken care of, and there were several opportunities to do so, under Clinton. Of course Bin Ladin may be gone but Al-Qaeda is alive and killing.

Public 'Inauguration' Just for Show

What's the show going to cost? If the cost of recent past inaugurations are any indication, well over $100 million.

In 2005, for President Bush's second inauguration, "the federal government and the District of Columbia spent a combined $115.5 million, most of it for security, the swearing-in ceremony, cleanup and for a holiday for federal workers," according to the New York Times.

Republicans have to figure out a way to win a presidential election with 46-48 percent of the vote and quick because it will be even less as the years go on.

MLK....

It was both unfortunate and disastrous that the Republican Party nominated Barry Goldwater as its candidate for President of the United States.

In foreign policy Mr. Goldwater advocated a narrow nationalism, a crippling isolationism, and a trigger-happy attitude that could plunge the whole world into the dark abyss of annihilation.

On social and economic issues, Mr. Goldwater represented an unrealistic conservatism that was totally out of touch with the realities of the twentieth century. The issue of poverty compelled the attention of all citizens of our country. Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated.

On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand.

In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy.

While I had followed a policy of not endorsing political candidates, I felt that the prospect of Senator Goldwater being President of the United States so threatened the health, morality, and survival of our nation, that I could not in good conscience fail to take a stand against what he represented.

so today when one of you Glenn Beck nuts tries to tell us MLK was a Republican.....

Actually things have turned around. All of the economic indicators are going in the right direction.
It could be better but the President was faced with a hostile GOP that essentially took a blood oath to block anything coming out of the White House.
Raising the debt ceiling is not the same as raising the debt. That debt already exists and is largely the result of two wars, unneeded tax cuts, and a recession that reduced revenues. Raising the debt ceiling allows the government to pay the bills already racked up.
Why are you not getting this? President Obama doesn't care about more white people having jobs. He cares about white people paying for the sins of the past and believes hardworking black people will understand if they, too, have to make sacrifices for this cause.

He doesn't care about capitalism or even how and if it works. He cares about leveling the playing field and opposing any opposition to a democrat-led government micromanaging the people even if it means alienating half the country.

He doesn't care about honesty or transparancy. He cares about demonizing and marginalizing to have the power to carry out his agenda of transforming this country into his personal vision.

That was just the first four years. Now that reelection is not an issue, we'll see a "new and improved" version of the above.

The only thing transparent about this president is his reliance on people like you pretending they don't see this.

Every single one of his decisions involves a weaker economy, a weaker military and a constant reminder of the sins of the past.

We basically have a President Jeremiah Wright who looks and sounds like Barack Obama.

Think about it - just for a minute.

What has this president done to lessen racial tension? How about class warfare? From my memory MLK was about equality and love and tollerance, BO is about none of these thinds. This country is far more divided than when he came into office.
Sadly, the objective in any political coup is to divide and conquer.

The only thing this president and his followers can hope for is that it will work and not backfire eventually.

Homer gave her the benefit of the doubt and thought about it for the full 60 seconds, then discarded it as one would with any type of trash(recycling where applicable).

Did you mike this up on your own?
Documentation would be interesting.

You might discuss Mitt Romney and the G H W Bush and G W Bush rather than neurotic attacks on President Obama.

What is positive about Republicans?

The last part is worng to say, and I am a Republican. It is wrong to wish someone to die, or wish them any harm, just because you don't like them. As much as you don't like him, he's in there. Instead of wishing anything on him. Pray that in the next 4 years he can do good for this country, or at least not make things more worse on us. Hang in there 4 years goes fast.
