Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Ratings are down slightly because many Conservatives are tired of seeing Obama, or even hearing about him.
The inaugural show was TV to be purposely avoided. State-of-Union show will be the same.
Slightly??

Your Obama Derangement Syndrome is affecting your ability to read??

"Fox News Ratings Hit 12-Year Demo Lows In January Cable News Figures"

""But, as rival MSNBC was quick to point out, and BuzzFeed was quick to trumpet, Fox News had its worst prime time ratings in the coveted 25-54 demographic since August 2001, and its lowest total day ratings since June 2008.

To a seasoned watcher of cable news ratings, there were other surprises. Rachel Maddow, for instance, came in 10th, beating "Studio B" and the 11 p.m. repeat of "The O'Reilly Factor." In January 2012, she came in 14th. It may not seem like much, but the top of the cable news field has been extremely stable -- and if Maddow were to continue creeping up the list, it would mean a real sea change. Overall, MSNBC -- perhaps powered by liberal euphoria over President Barack Obama's inauguration -- was the only cable news channel to grow its ratings from 2012.

This continues a pattern that emerged in 2012: Fox News viewers tuned out en masse from Democratic-themed events, causing the network's ratings to plunge during the Democratic National Convention, the hours immediately following Obama's re-election, and the president's inauguration. MSNBC, meanwhile, benefited from the solidification of its Democratic-friendly lineup, and drew a lion's share of eager liberal viewers.

Over on CNN, "The Situation Room" led the pack, followed by "Piers Morgan Tonight" and Anderson Cooper's show.""

The key is that young people have abandoned FAUX by droves since the election.

FAUX is left with the old and feeble, folks like you and Lorac!!

Who told you they were "cheering"???
I hear a lot of shouting and see concerned faces. If they were "cheering" wouldn't you expect more smiles?
Somebody told you they were cheering so that's what you see because you're a good little soldier in the fight for what's right (no matter how wrong it is).
Those in the video were looters who moved in quickly after the assailants left. They unexpectedly came across the ambassador and alerted the Libyan security people who had moved back in.

What you're seeing in that video is a couple of Libyan security men bringing the body through a group of young looters. What you're not seeing is a vehicle just out of frame and of course weapons.

WSJonline and others have produced fairly accurate depictions of how the entire event unfolded.

I'm hoping I don't live long enough to end up under the slimey, tattered Medicare umbrella.

See how that works? I've been successfully brainwashed to prefer dying than getting old in America.

Chris Wallace made Wayne Laputrid look like the idiot he truly is on FAUX this morning.

Chirs is finally becoming a reporter in his father's image.

About time.

But he did a good job of making the NRA look stupid.

The NRA thinks we live in a Madd Maxx world and everyone in Amreica is under assalut 24/7.

It reflects the paranoia of the Teabagger crowd.

America will reject them , just like they did Rmoney!!

Woods and a couple of his CIA cohorts went to the consulate in hopes of rescuing the ambassador, Smith and the other SD employees who were in a different building. The located and retrieved Smith's body but not the ambassador's and later learned that the ambassador was taken to a nearby hospital by Libyans and where efforts were made to resuscitate.
There are photos of the ambassador being carried to and loaded into a vehicle.
You've become a lying pos__on the one hand defending right wing media and then plastering they're outright fabrications on this thread. You are no better that DB or any of the other trolls.
The photos look more like dragging a corpse than carrying a live person.

Chris Kyle, Author Of 'American Sniper,' Shot And Killed At Gun Range

"Chris Kyle, an ex-Navy SEAL who wrote the best-selling book American Sniper about his service in Iraq, was shot and killed at a gun range in Texas, multiple outlets reported Saturday night. A second man was also killed.

According to local TV station KHOU, officials said that Kyle was shot at point-blank range "while helping another soldier who was recovering from post traumatic stress syndrome" at a range near the town of Glen Rose.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Lancaster, Texas police arrested a suspect, 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, after a brief chase.

Kyle had become well-known for his exploits in Iraq, where he deployed four times, set the record for sniper kills at 150, received numerous commendations, and, according to the Stephenville Empire Tribune, was given the nickname "The Devil of Ramadi" by insurgents."

Always good when gun nuts shoot other gun nuts.

All his skills as a sniper couldn't save him from a shooting range in TX, home of the craziest of the crazies!!

Live by the gun, die by the gun.

Maybe, if...the past three presidents (including Obama) had re-appropriated the annual Social Security surplus for Medicare expenses instead of Defense we would be experiencing the higher "happiness index" that is the United Nations goal for the citizens of the world. Maybe. There would certainly be a lot less dead Americans, young AND old.

Your Obama belongs to a death cult.

Mike Johanns To Support Chuck Hagel For Defense Secretary: Report

""Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) will support his former colleague Chuck Hagel's nomination for U.S. defense secretary, the Lincoln Journal Star reported Saturday.

Hagel, a former Republican senator from Nebraska, faced about eight hours of tough questioning on Thursday during his confirmation hearing in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The White House defended Hagel's performance on Friday, maintaining that the former senator will garner enough votes for confirmation.

As the Omaha World-Herald reported last month, many eyes have turned to the GOP senators from Hagel's home state, Johanns and Deb Fischer.

“Chuck Hagel’s military career is nothing short of admirable and while he has been a long-time friend, we do have very different opinions on many very important issues," Johanns said in a statement after Obama announced his nomination of Hagel. "Now that he has been nominated, he has an obligation to elaborate on his past statements and fully explain his positions during what I expect to be a thorough and fair confirmation hearing."

Earlier this week, Johanns signaled that he was leaning towards supporting Hagel.

"It sure seems to me that this has gone well," Johanns told the Journal Star after meeting privately with Hagel ahead of the confirmation hearing. At the time, Johanns said he would reserve his final decision until after the hearing.

Johanns is the second Republican to back Hagel. The first was Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), who endorsed Hagel on Tuesday.

A committee vote on Hagel may come as early as next Thursday. Democrats hold a 14-12 edge on the Senate Armed Services Committee.""

Then I assume you're also against cuts in education for the same reason.
The problem with education is that public schools do not hire the best-qualified personnel. In fact, public education avoids hiring graduates with subject matter majors in favor of education majors, generally the lower end of the student crop.

Teacher salaries are more than adequate to attract highly-qualified personnel, but schools choose to use other criteria in hiring.

Paul Krugman: GOP's Immigration Reform 'Problem Is Their Base Is Old White People'

""As the debates on immigration reform and gun control heat up, the Republican Party and the National Rifle Association have problems ahead, Paul Krugman predicted on Sunday. Those problems, he suggested, have to do with how the two groups fundamentally work.

Appearing Sunday on ABC's "This Week," the Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist first weighed in on the bipartisan plan for comprehensive immigration reform unveiled by eight senators last week. It's the GOP that should be getting nervous, he said.

"The Republican Party has a problem," Krugman told host George Stephanopoulos. "The leadership understands that ... they're doomed if they are only the party of old white people, to put it bluntly. The problem is their base is old white people."

Krugman added that the senators' proposal to create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants has "got to be good for everybody" and that "there's no possible reason not to do this."

Turning to gun control, Krugman said that the NRA's "bizarre" approach, in which it has dug in its heels, rather than make concessions, may actually be working against it.

"I think that the terms of the debate have shifted," Krugman said. "Now the craziness of the extreme pro-gun lobby has been revealed, and that has got to move the debate and got to move the legislation at least to some degree.

"The NRA is now revealed as an insane organization, and that matters quite a lot," he added.""

----------

Proof that the base is old white folks like Lorac is the fact that no one on this thread from the R side has said a word about supporting immigration reform.

In fact, the nitwits on this thread are older and whiter than almost any group in America, and still cling to their anti immigration hatred, even as their Party is trying desperately to move into the 21st Century.

These folks wish to return to the 18th century.

That's why they lose and keep getting angrier!!

Their Obama Derangement Syndrome is killing their Party.

I'm lovin' it!!

Assumes facts not in evidence. In fact, many hospitals are closing, or closing parts of their facilities.

The issue in the future will be quality of personnel, not quantity. The medical profession will be flooded with folks from Bangladesh.

Don't put words in my mouth. I asked you for evidence that either party took spending cuts seriously. Lacking any sort of meaningful spending reduction proposals or actions the only choice is to increase revenues because I consider theft immoral especially when compared to just doing without. Since you and your type can't do without you should at least have to pay for what you get.
Cut anything you choose. Eliminate the entire defense budget and you only reduce the deficit by 50%.

Translation:

Tenzing is easy on Nobraina, not pointing out his idiocy and mocking him.

I take on Nobraina and abuse him mercilessly. His ignorance makes it easy.

He's too afraid of me to dare enter a discussion.

He tried a few times, but I dumped on him so badly he runs off when I show up.

He's a coal man!!
