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

Many federal dollars are spent on military facilities in "red" states for two reasons: strategic location and willingness of the state to host such facilities.

Of course, we could always turn the Hamptons into a giant military base if New York wanted more federal dollars.

So, in addition to prosecuting an illegal war with the confederacy, he was woefully ignorant of the inherent failures of any communist society? No wonder Booth shot him.
Communism has never existed just in name. What has been labeled as Communism are actually hybird forms of Socialism that incorporates Totalitarianism that is needed vs Authoritarianism like the hybird form of Socialism here in the US that is opposed to individualism and libertarianism(Capitalism).

Totalitarianism

Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state holds total authority over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life wherever necessary.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totalitarianism

Authoritarianism

Authoritarianism is a form of social organization characterized by submission to authority as well as the administration of said authority. In politics, an authoritarian government is one in which political authority is concentrated in a small group of politicians. It is usually opposed to individualism and libertarianism.

So, according to dumbass you, if I have a trade show for baby stuff, the second amendment gives you the right to set up a booth to sell assault rifles.
I have news, you GD idiot. Those who run the shows have the right to determine what is acceptable to be shown or sold.
It has NOTHING to do with what is or is not legal.
It is a HINTING show. It is not legal to hunt in PA with an assault rifle.
I have a plan, since you don't think I own any guns, try breaking into my home & you will find out.

You are dumb and getting dumber;
- An arms dealer is not going to purchase a booth at a baby show so, your point is mute
- Folks who purchase space at a hunting show have every right to sell legal products, so one more time you are off base, no surprize
- Is it illegal to own an 'assault' weapon in PA? Again you prove your ignorance

That whole red state/blue state lie has been refuted many places, but don't expect any of the lib trolls on here to stop regurgitating it. All I need to know about blue blue states is the thousands bailing out of places like California and moving to where taxes are lower. People vote with their feet as well as with ballots.

I wish Mickelson wouldn't have backed down.. Tiger bailed on the rip offs in Cal. a long time ago.

End drug prohibition, end gang gun violence. Its that simple.
That's kind of simplistic. You assume legalizing drugs would evaporate gangs. Gangs have been a part of society as long as we've had cities, but the brutality we contend with is relatively new. You have to get beyond the accompanying elements of inner-city gangdome and go to the heart of the matter, too much idle time and non-existent family involvement. As you know, having jobs available to our kids isn't enough, they need to see a need for jobs, that comes from the home and vicariously, the government. We encourage idleness by subsidizing it.

Nuculur as usual Wrong!! The question of funding was asked doing a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee!! Assistant Secretary of State’ Lamb’ was asked whether there was "any budget consideration and lack of budget" which played into the number of people assigned for security at the Benghazi consulate. Lamb's answer: "No!!
Let's see the link, liar.

Meanwhile, back in realityland:

Jason Chaffetz Admits House GOP Cut Funding For Embassy Security:'You Have To Prioritize Things'

"Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.

On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security."

"Absolutely," Chaffetz said. "Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”

For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million."

----------

Republican cuts to embassy security funding caused Benghazi.

Case closed.

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

Hey stupid! The deficit has actually gone down during the Obama administration . home.adelphi.edu/sbloch/deficits.html
You right wing morons keep ignoring the main causes of the deficit which are unneeded tax cuts not offset by spending cuts two wars, one of them totally unnecessary and Medicare Part D which prohibited the government from negotiating for lower drug prices.
Drones were used during the Bush administration in Iraq and Afghanistan aand have a lower rate of collateral damage than aircraft dropped bombs. Are you suggesting that we simply give up trying to fight Al Qaeda?

And you believe it because Bush said so??

and you've never met an alcoholic that denies it??

BWAHAHAHAHAHA

I'll bet you're an alcoholic, too!!

With your ignorance and denial, it's likely.

----------

""Much is being made of a recent National Enquirer report regarding George W. Bush's hitting the bottle. It should be noted that the Enquirer has historically hired legitimate journalist stringers who use pen names to mask their true identities, particularly on political stories.

The Bush boozing story is not a new one. The editor has heard of and written about Bush's drinking bouts since 2001. The "choking pretzel" incident had nothing to do with a pretzel but was a carefully contrived story used to cover up a Bush drinking spree that resulted in his passing out on a coffee table in the White House second floor residence and injuring his face. Ditto the numerous cases of Bush falling off a bike somewhere to explain further wounds on his face. Back in college, we used to call that getting "s**t-faced drunk." Apparently, Mr. Bush still thinks he's in college.

Frat boy George: Still getting "s**t-faced"

The White House press corps has been whispering about Bush's drinking over the past few years. None dare write or speak about it lest their credentials are lifted and further access cut off by the most vindictive White House in American history"

----

Or this:

WASHINGTON DC -- At the request of First Lady, Laura Bush, Pastor Deacon Fred of Landover Baptist Church has agreed to counsel President George W. Bush on his lifelong, unfortunate abuse of alcohol which has recently become so great that it caused him to lose consciousness, fall to the ground and cut open his face in the White House last Sunday. So shocked were Presidential advisers by the severity of the problem that they were unable to create a plausible explanation for the passing-out episode on the spur of the moment. The official explanation was, incredibly, that the President choked on a pretzel while watching football alone in a White House room.
“It is unfortunate that this problem could affect such a great man,” noted Deacon Fred.“Those of us in the know have recognized that Mr. Bush was still drinking even before he became President. One look at video of him during the Florida recount vote made that clear. Even Santa Claus doesn’t have cheeks as red as his. But we had hoped his advisers would get a handle on the problem and see that he experienced some Christian counseling. At the very least, they should have been able to come up with a better excuse for his passing out than choking on a damned pretzel! Do they think their fellow American's are idiots? We all know Mr. Bush was watching football alone because he has deceived himself into thinking that if he drinks alone, no one will know. This is an unfortunate pattern of alcoholic deception.”

----------

So Bush says he doesn't drink, in spite of evidence to the contrary, and you're stupid enough to believe him.

You're like a pet rock. Dumb as one.

Why do you think he remains hidden in Dallas?? No public appearances, no speeches, no involvement.

He sits at home and gets drunk every day.

And you stupidly deny it.

BAWAHAHAHAHAHA

You never were good at anything but multiple judge-its, nitwit!!

Democrats crack me up. They post false information and make false accusations, yet never own up when wrong. They are like robots that lack any common sense or moral character. They base the opinions they have on emotion only.

It's like they are stuck being juvenile delinquents.

I saw some quotes posted this week and it struck me. Democrats today actually practice many of these:

read the first two and tell me who that pertaisn to.

I like this one as it lays out the problem today and why Obama won:

"How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think."

I think he's talking about every single Democrat here.
