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

Like how Bush was asleep at the helm when Al Queda attacked the USA, in an attack on our soil that was worse than Pearl Harbor.
Surely you mean Al Queda killed 3,000 people in the WTC before Bush realized Al Queda existed!!
Had Dubya listened to the FBI, CIA, or Clinton's team, 9-11 would not have happened.
But he didn't, and it did!!
Why was Bush never put on trial for failing to protect our Nation??
Why do you continue to defend a failed President, the worst in American History, according to most Americans??
And you remain blissfully ignorant!!

Yes, we know how you hate to see the DOW hit 14,000 for the first time since 2007, the year Bush crashed the economy!!

Wasn't that Dubya fellow President then?? The guy who destroyed our economy??

Dow stands at 13,997 at this moment.

3 points from the significant 14000 level!!

Now let's see you nitwits attack capitalism some more, telling us how the Capitalists are all wrong, the market is really at 6,000!!

C'mon, Flake, you're as dumb as Emaam. Let's see you say something truly ignorant again!!

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.
No gases, whatever you are referring to, are ever removed from the environment. They can only be converted to something else.

Ok. What's the new party line mantra to explain Al Qaeda bombing us like they're on a schedule again?
And, 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?
(You can answer the question about why Obama lied for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda terrorist attack against the US later.)
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
And;
Why is Al Qaeda able to bomb us as if they are on a schedule again?
<Quote DBWriter,> "Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to all the Republican legislation that made the government fiscally sound."
In the above quote you make the case that it's congress that drags the president to a fiscally sound government. Then you ask the question why can't the president drag congress. You need a proofreader.

Police in Arlington County, Va. have dropped an investigation into Patrick Moran, the son of Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA), stemming from an election-season "voter fraud" hidden-camera video released by conservative activist James O'Keefe.

Police told a local Patch reporter that both Morans had cooperated with the investigation, but that O'Keefe had not complied with several requests for the full, unedited video in his possession, along with the identity of the videographer.

"Who knows what else could be on the video? Our detective wanted to request those two things, and that party failed to comply," police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told Patch.

"We want the full version. That's our job, to do a thorough investigation. And that's a huge piece of the process right there."

... another idiot.
The State Department is in control of the security, and who is responsible for stripping down the security detatchmment.
The Department of Defense is in control of the AC-130 and Force Recon Marine units specifically positioned to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya.

Pay close attention here....

The State Department cannot give orders to the Department of Defense.
The Department of Defense had a plan of action and default orders in the case of an attack on the embassy in Libya.

Only the White House had the authority to override the default orders of the units specifically positioned solely to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya.

Senate Republicans Squandered a Big Opportunity Yesterday to Help Their Party

Matt Duss reviews yesterday’s spectacle and makes a good observation:

Any hopes that Republicans might be embracing a new reasonableness in the wake of their Election Day drubbing will have to be put off. They evinced a level of disdain for the nominee that I don’t recall ever seeing in a similar hearing [bold mine-DL].

It’s that seething disdain for Hagel that is so remarkable. Republican hard-liners have contributed to their party’s defeats in three of the last four elections, and they inflicted long-term damage on their party’s reputation on foreign policy by embracing the biggest foreign policy blunder in a generation, and now they are furious with Hagel because he’s one of the few national Republicans to recognize reality. McCain’s obsession with insisting on the rightness of the “surge” that failed on the Bush administration’s own terms is one example of this refusal to cope with reality.

If it were just McCain doing this, we could dismiss it as part of a long pattern of his embittered reactions to past political defeats. The amazing thing is that virtually every Republican member of the committee yesterday pretended to be just as incensed and outraged by Hagel as McCain was. Four of the Republican members are new Senators elected in 2010 or last year, and in some respects the new members were worse than McCain in trying to prove their hard-line credentials. Senate Republicans had an opportunity yesterday to demonstrate that they had learned something from the failures of the Bush era and the folly of hard-line policies, and they threw it away without giving it a moment’s thought.

culture trumps politics. for proof, look no further than the very first post-election issue Republicans were told they needed to address: getting on the right side of Hispanics by neutralizing the illegal-immigrant issue.

A population perhaps the size of Australia's or four mid-sized EU nations' strolled into America and decided to stay. In doing so, they broke the law. Literally. That's to say, some of the most basic laws of the nation lie shattered and discarded.

Municipally, we have "sanctuary cities" and "hiring halls."

At the state level, Illinois is merely the latest to issue driver's licenses and other legal ID to persons who are in the country illegally.

Federally, the president himself has decreed by executive order that the laws of the nation not be enforced — and, indeed, anybody minded to try enforcing them (Arizona) gets hauled into court.

This is a highly legalistic society with laws against everything and most of them with stiff jail sentences attached. Yet a group of squatters has rendered the law irrelevant.

Four of the September 11 terrorists obtained the picture ID they used to board the plane through the illegal-immigrant day-worker network in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven in Falls Church, Va.

But 3,000 corpses wasn't enough to persuade either the citizenry or their representatives to end their indulgence of such networks.

Indeed, it's estimated that half of the "undocumented" have come here since 9/11:
That's to say, they broke into a country on Code Orange alert.

The culture frames the issue, starting with the appropriation of language: These are "hard-working families" willing to do "the jobs Americans won't do," notwithstanding the strains they place on hospitals and schools, the contributions they make to gang crime and drunk-driving statistics ...

Once upon a time they were "illegal," then "undocumented," now just "immigrants," a word with longstanding emotional resonance in America but nevertheless one that used to mean guys who stood in line at consulates, filled in the paperwork, and paid the application fees, and whose redefinition into something entirely different has been accepted as a fait accompli.

Because Bush actually arrested one of the hijackers before the 9/11(2001) attack, idiot.
He arrested 1 out of the 20 terrorists??

That one was arrested for immigration violation in Aug. 2001.

Bush never got the intel that led to 9-11. What was wrong with his team that they had one of the terrorists, but were not able to learn of the planned 9-11 attack??

Bush failed the Nation miserably.

Did he prevent any of the attacks??

Of course not.

Under Bush, the Pentagon and the WTC were attacked with airplanes.

And you're touting the fact he caught 1 out of 20??

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Are you quite serious??

Bush's incompetence led to the worst attack on American soil in American History.

Low growth is an essential part of the "green" movement to "sustainable" growth.

Welcome to the new reality of reduced expectations, where mediocre is the new excellent.
