Barack Obama, our next President

American interference in the Libyan civil war and gun-running to the rebels caused Benghazi.
Gun running to the rebels? LMAO. The CIA was conducting an illegal war in Libya you stupid fk, out of the Benghazi base where Woods and two dozen just like him managed groups numbering up to 100 per operative. Petreaus's main squeeze Broadwell spoke publicly about the goings on there including that the base was at times used to hold prisoners. Was the real purpose of the consulate? Cover for the nearby CIA base perhaps?

Why was the Ambassador in Benghazi without his security team?

We didn't learn that in the hearings did we? That info is classified so tell us again__what was purpose of the hearings?

GOP launches internet 'survey' to figure out what went wrong

Do you want to help the Republican Party figure out what went wrong, in 2012? Of course you do. Towards that end, the Republican party has launched the Growth & Opportunity Project, chaired by such luminaries as Henry Barbour and Ari Fleischer, to recommend how best to not screw things up quite so horribly next time. And to help with that, they're using that most scientific of all tools, an internet survey.

The questions are, sadly, rather generic:

Which issues do you think Republicans should spend MORE time talking about?(please select one)
- Fiscal issues, like taxes, government spending, and the debt
- Economic issues, like unemployment, housing, and high energy prices
- National Security issues, like terrorism, foreign policy, and national defense
- Social issues, like abortion and family values

They also ask you to rate how much "improvement" the party needs in areas like "Diversity within the Party" and "How the Party communicates with voters."

Republicans looking to interject their opinions will probably be disappointed, however. In a dozen or so pages of questions to fill out, only four or so invite you to give your input on the actual Republican Party and their efforts. All the others are demographic questions—data mining stuff. What's your name? What age are you? What's your email address, little feller? You know, the kind of questions you teach your kids not to answer during their own internet sessions.

Hey, at least the party leaders are asking for opinions, right? Your opinion is only worth about 1/4th of the content on an actual opinion survey, but it's a start? Surely it's not just a flimsy effort towards party list-building under the guise of momentary introspection.

IO'll save you some time.
The States that choose not to set up their own exchanges give the power to the Feds!!
So the Feds will step in and set up exchanges, with no State input.
HAHA
That will give Rick Perry and others something else to whine about.
Jan Brewer was smart enough to see the damage this would do to her states' ability to influence the setting up of exchanges.
Even Rick Scott is reconsidering..........
Yes they can set up the exchanges but the bill gives the fed no authority to require the insurance be bought or to enforce the tax. Seems it's a paper tiger.

If I remember correctly it is up to the state governments to ratify or repeal an amendment not the people. Most state governments are republican held right now I believe. It would need 2/3 of the states I think.

Right, but the Stupid Party(Republican) as Bobby Jindal has labeled the Republican Party has been for repeal of the 22th amendment too even when Reagan was president which both parties have been for repeal for years. On January 4, 2013, Rep. José Serrano(D-NY) once again introduced H.J.Res. 15 proposing an Amendment to repeal the 22nd Amendment, as he has done every two years since 1997

There is no such term used today.
But you've had your head stuffed up your butt for so long, it's probably the last thing you remember.
Most Americans believe the science. Yu believe the deniers.
Guess which attitude helped win the election??
Your denying lost big time among the voting public.
I think that's part of the 'stupid' that Bobby Jindal and Haley Barbour say your side needs to get rid of.
Sorry that Bobby called you stupid.
Global warming...climate change...same difference.

"We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations."

The funny thing is the climate has been changing since the beginning of time. Obama, bless his heart, can't change that.

You're wrong. Is this more of you rspeculating, as you did when you said Lanza used a handgun to kill the children??

You believe all sorts of crap you hear from your right wing sources.

But it's still crap.

You'll see in 2014.

"But the president's signature health care plan has become so fraught with politics that whether governors agreed to set up the exchanges has fallen mostly along party lines.

Such partisanship is largely symbolic because if a state opts not to set up the exchange, the Department of Health and Human Services will do it for them as part of the federal program. That would not likely be well-received by Republican governors, either, but the law forces each state's chief executive to make a decision one way or the other."

What economic failure imbecile? You mean like bringing the Dow from around 6500 when he took office to yesterday's 13895.98? Like three years of private sector job growth and record low levels of unemployment claims? New home sales the highest since 2009.
According to your criteria only someone to the right of Heinrich Himmler is a true Republican and even Ronald Reagan wouldn't make the cut.
You're an idiot!
Economist Nouriel Roubini told CNBC:

"The damage will be widespread if we don't have enough job creation and there's not enough labor income. Therefore, there's not enough consumption and consumer companies are going to be depressed. Therefore, the recovery is going to remain weak. The markets are expecting now a robust recovery in the second half of the year. I think the recovery is going to disappoint on the downside."

Without jobs, no economic recovery. Ask the former USSR.

It's only the same difference to people like you, who d are not smart enough to understand the science.

You believe O'Reilly and Co.

Hey dingleberry I said they can set up the exchanges but they don't have the power to make you buy insurance or tax you if you don't.
