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

Horseshit. Unless it can be predicted where this naturally occurring warming trend will lead us WITHOUT 'emissions', it's impossible to predict what changes will occur with them - much less how to stop or reverse the process.
So, say you are 20 & smoke two packs a day.

You claim that quitting smoking will not make you live longer because there is no proof how long you would live without smoking.

Brilliant.

Climatologist have measured the increase of these gases in our atmosphere. They know what the effects are. They know how long it will take the Earth to remove these additional gases if emission are reduced.

If you look at cap and trade it doesn't stop greenhouse gases at all. It simply allows a large greenhouse gas emitter to buy 'credits' from a low greenhouse gas emitter. the only thing that changes is the money. Of course people like Al Gore have to take their share off the top for handling the transactions. It's a scam perpetrated on a bunch of sheep.
Time to go.
Cap & Trade fixed acid rain.

It lowers emission.

The dirtier producers will have higher costs. The greener producers will gain a price advantage in the market place.

Capitalism then works its magic.

The Tectonic Impact Of Obama's Re-Election

Is it just me or are more people surprised by the snowballing impact of Obama's re-election?

It's not just the return to Clinton tax rates for the very wealthy; it's a real cultural shift as well. In the last week, we have seen the Boy Scouts back off a national policy of excluding openly gay scouts and scout-masters (which means the Mormon hierarchy must have not made too big a fuss);we have Tom Tancredo almost smoking a joint in public (don't make a bet with him on anything in the future); we have Sean Hannity's ratings plummeting; we see gay couples included in the president's comprehensive immigration reform; we have Limbaugh edging ever-so-slightly toward Rubio on immigration; and we have this somewhat astounding "favorable/unfavorable " chart for the president:....

The ABC/Post poll has him at 60 percent favorable. Meanwhile, a plurality of Texans want an assault weapons ban. The ban on women in combat has been lifted, with little fuss. And here's the latest poll of polls on Obamacare:....

That's the narrowest gap since 2009. A majority of Americans, moreover, now favor a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants - and a plurality of Republicans also agree. The forces against marriage equality are struggling to stay financially afloat; the NRA and AIPAC, two of the most toxic lobbies in Washington, have been off their game after the Newtown massacre and the Hagel nomination.

I'm sure the usual backlash is coming. I'm just as sure that honeymoons don't last. But this doesn't feel like a honeymoon; it seems to me that the size and composition of the electorate last November has shifted the mood and direction of the country - durably. The GOP now has to grapple with reality; and the president has to avoid any hint of hubris if he is to cement what is increasingly a lasting legacy.

Meep meep.

No matter it's in the agenda along with disarming America atleast law abiding America , socialism is taking a foot hold right before our eyes , too much political correctness also ,never really liked that phrase [oxymoron],remember obama "lets fundamentally change the greatest country on earth" whats next , is there a clause in obama care that states both men and women must see the obgyn twice a year I don't think that would be fair seeing how only the democrat males would be getting their moneys worth .

By the way, Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to all the Republican legislation that made the government fiscally sound.

Look dickbreath, it is a fact that Obama submitted a budget every year. Your mental twin Dumbwaiter said he did not.
You can whine, cry, jump up & down & the usual crap you do, but facts are facts.
But hey, being the GD dumbass right whiner you are, you would rather Congress plays political games than actually get anything done.
If you were actually informed, you would know President's budgets typically go into the committees where the actual budget that gets voted on is created.
Putting the submitted budget up to vote is playing politics.
Too bad you are too f*cking stupid to know that.
As a taxpayer, something you likely know nothing about, my tax dollars go to subsidizing the oil industry.
Your mental twin DBWRiter claims to work in this industry. So yes, I do subsidize his salary.
GFY dumbass Eed. Do yourself a favor & get better informed. You are embarrassing yourself yet again.

How about Congress act as if money doesn't grow on trees. Since you really, really seem to really, really want to answer this question, I'll ask it again:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

And, thank you for purchasing products made from oil. I spend the money you give to me riding really fine show-quality motorcycles.

You have to be the most ignorant person here.

Obama submitted only two budgets to Congress in the four years he was supposed to submit a budget.
The sum total of votes in the entire Congress for each, and both of the two budgets Obama submitted of the four budgets Obama was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NADA, NONE, ZILCH.
Obama gets virtually 100 percent of the black vote, and he can't get even one goddam vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.
That means every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.

So, why do you treat him like some kind of deity while the real leaders of the Democratic Party think Obama is an ignorant idiot?
