Barack Obama, our next President

Well, okay, right after the dismal Q4 report came out, they first blamed Hurricane Sandy and then blamed Republicans.
When do Democrats ever ask themselves if perhaps THEY are doing something wrong??
Republicans never shift the blame for their own policies on anyone or anything else. That's the difference.
Hate to say it, but only children and those with an adult child-like mentality always place blame somewhere else.
A future Republican nominee needs to be able to claim credibly that he does not represent the second coming of George W. Bush. Right now, Rubio seems to working overtime to confirm that this is exactly what he wants to be. At this point, it’s probably too late for him to stop and reverse course, but it’s interesting that he doesn’t even seem to be aware of the danger. Someone might object that no one will care about the next nominee’s similarities to Bush, but Republican leaders have consistently underestimated how damaging Bush’s legacy is for them. It may not be as much of a problem as it was in 2012, but it will still be a real problem for years to come. If Republicans think the close resemblance to Bush won’t matter, they are kidding themselves.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...

and the other day i read an interesting fact posted by a conservative economist...

....if we look at projections from the Congressional Budget Office on January 7, 2009 – while Bush was still in office and which do not incorporate any Obama policies – we see that the deficit was projected to rise from $455 billion in 2008 to $1.2 trillion in 2009 under existing law.

The actual deficit for fiscal year 2009 was $1.55 trillion. But the difference was due entirely to lower revenues than expected, not higher spending. Outlays in fiscal year 2009 actually came in below CBO’s projection –$3,518 billion actual vs. a projection of $3,543 billion.

The point is not to assess blame for the deficit; only to emphasize the temporary nature of the historically large deficits of the last few years and show that they did not result from an explosion of new spending initiated by Obama. This is important because Republicans continually make that claim, thus justifying their belief that spending must be massively slashed, especially for entitlements.

How about you just tell us. Just give us a location for Obama during the 7-hour battle when orders came from the White House to the AC-130 and Force Recon Marine units to disregard the default orders of supporting Americans when there was an attack on specifically the embassy in Libya.
Just give us a location. All you said was Obama was in some kind of a meeting at 11:00 PM. Where was he during the 7-hour battle?
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the real time video was being watched in the White House, and orders came from the White House for the AC-130s and the Force Recon Marine units to ignore their default orders to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya?
(Thus, who in the White House gave the order for the Americans to be hung out to dry in Libya while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real time video; and why did Obama lie for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the United States when the real time video of the 7-hour battle that was watched in the White House proved the Obama explanation an obvious lie?)
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
So far, nobody on Earth has answered these questions.

McCain still trying to seem relevant:

On Thursday, McCain attempted to re-litigate whether the surge was the right decision, aggressively pressing Hagel on whether he stands by his past statements. He quoted Hagel as saying in 2007 that the surge was the "most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam."

"Were you right?" McCain asked. "Were you correct in your assessment?"

"Well, I would defer to the judgment of history to sort that out," Hagel said.

"This committee deserves your judgment as to whether you were right or wrong about the surge," McCain responded, adding, "I want to know if you were right or wrong. That's a direct question. I expect a direct answer."

When Hagel continued to insist that the answer was more complicated than a yes or no answer, McCain grew frustrated.

"Another weapon from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agency's controversial Operation Fast and Furious was recently recovered at a Mexican crime scene, CBS News has learned. Congressional investigators say the crime scene was likely where a recent shootout took place between reported Sinaloa drug cartel members and the Mexican military, in which Sinaloa beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez and four others were killed.
According to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the Justice Department did not notify Congress of the Fast and Furious firearm recovery in November, even though Grassley has requested an accounting of weapons that surface from the case. During Fast and Furious, ATF allowed more than 2,000 weapons, including giant .50-caliber guns, to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and other criminals. Other so-called "gunwalking" operations by ATF let hundreds more guns hit the street"

Sorry to break character here, Jimmy, but why would you be sad about it? Aren't you the girl who wants to grind the liberal pussies into the dirt with a sledgehammer? Did I not get the memo again? You people have GOT to learn how to use e-mail!

Look, here's the thing, Jim. If a piano fell on you todaqy around... 4:37 pm or so, I, personally, would not blow a fart in your memory. The same is true for your children and their children, if, God-forbid, they were able to find some retarded person to breed with. The whole point, Jim, is to see you people dead and buried not to reach some sort of accord? Haven't you been paying attention?

I don't want to live next to you or carol. Good god almighty don't tell me you haven't figured out that you're the school sissy and you've been pissing on the leg of the school psychopath? You lost the election, boy. Elections have consequences. I thought you guys were all moving to France or someplace? Wasn't that the plan? Is it taking you too long to get all your stuff packed?

President Obama: said that “ultimately as commander in chief I’m responsible and I don’t shy away from that responsibility. My number one responsibility is to going after folks who did this and we’re going to make sure we get them and I have a pretty good track record of doing that.”
