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 ...

All easy questions for Obama vs:
'But I did find a 60 Minutes interview with George W. Bush. Here are the questions Scott Pelley asked him:
• "The war on terror, in a sense, began in this room, began in this cabin where your Cabinet meeting was held. Back then the whole country was with you. And now you seem to have lost them. Why do you think so?"
• "Most Americans at this point in time don't believe in this war in Iraq. They want you to get us out of there."
• "But wasn't it your administration that created the instability in Iraq?"
• "It's much more unstable now, Mr. President."
• "You mention mistakes having been made in your speech. What mistakes are you talking about?"
• "Fair to say there are not enough American troops on the ground to provide security for Iraq?"
• "Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job?"
• "You are gambling a lot, Mr. President, on the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Why do you think that's a gamble worth making?"
• "I was on the battlefield in Najaf when al-Sadr's people killed your United States Marines."
• "Do you believe that the House has the constitutional authority to prevent you from the troop build-up? Can they stop you?"
• "Do you believe as commander-in-chief you have the authority to put the troops in there no matter what the Congress wants to do?"
• "You know better than I do that many Americans feel that your administration has not been straight with the country, has not been honest. To those people you say what? Like the weapons of mass destruction? No credible connection between 9/11 and Iraq."
• "The Office of Management and Budget said this war would cost somewhere between $50 billion and $60 billion and now we're over 400."
• "When was it that you first found out or it dawned on you that, indeed, there were no weapons of mass destruction? And I wonder, did you think,'What have I done?'"
• "What should the American people look for in this war plan? When will they know whether it's working or not?"
• "What would you say right now in this interview to the Iranian president about the meddling in Iraq?"
• "I wonder if you feel like you've been ill-served by your Cabinet members, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, perhaps even Vice-President Dick Cheney. Wrong on WMD. Wrong on the connection between 9/11 and Iraq. And now you're in a fix. And I wonder if you look back and wonder who let you down."
• "The vice president suggested there was a connection, not necessarily 9/11, but certainly to al-Qaeda."
• "Final question. How can you escalate the war when so many people in this country seem to be against it?"
A stunning contrast, isn't it? I won't speculate about personal ideological bias. It's possible that Pelley is just a much better journalist than Kroft. I will say that there is a glaring double standard in the coverage that 60 Minutes has afforded the two presidents…

I don't recall Obama lying to the American people in order to start a war. A war that would be a cake walk, over quickly & paid for by Iraqi oil. A war that killed 4000 US soldiers.

The Stock Market Bubble. Surging Stock Markets Amidst a Global Depression
In the fifth year of the economic depression, and amid signs of the worst global slowdown since 2008, world stock markets are booming.

In the US, the three major stock indices have either reached or are within a few percentage points of their 2007 highs, despite the fact that the economy has stalled, contracting for the first quarter since 2009, according to figures released Wednesday.

Europe is in a state of disintegration, with Greece and Spain facing conditions not seen since the Great Depression, while Germany is experiencing a sharp slowdown. In Britain, the economy is now 3.3 percent smaller than at the start of the downturn, but the benchmark FTSE 250 index has doubled. China, Brazil and India have posted sharply lower figures for economic growth, amidst a slowdown in exports. Yet global share prices have risen ten to twenty percent in the past year alone.

These apparently contradictory phenomena—surging financial markets and economic stagnation—are in fact intimately linked. The continued rise in the markets is not a sign of health, but a particular expression of the diseased state of the world capitalist system.

The world’s ruling classes, confronting a historic crisis of productivity and investment, have responded through the reflation of asset values—and their own incomes—through historically unprecedented measures of wealth redistribution.

Above all, there has been a massive infusion of cash into the financial system by the US Federal Reserve and other central banks. The US Fed is currently purchasing some $85 billion worth of mortgage-backed securities and treasury bills every month, essentially printing money to buy up government debt and bad assets held by the banks. The total assets owned by the Federal Reserve have climbed to $3.01 trillion, more than triple what they were in 2008.

All major world central banks have taken similar actions. In July, the European Central Bank moved to reduce its benchmark interest rate to the lowest level in the history of the euro. The size of the holdings of the six largest world central banks has nearly tripled, to €14 trillion in 2012.

THE DUNCE OBAMA SUPPORTERS CHEER NEWS THEY HAVE NO INVESTMENTS IN THEY DO NOT BENEFIT FROM WALL STREET THEy DONT OWN STOCK OR THE HOME THEY LIVE IN BUT THEY CHEER WHAT THEY THINK MAKES OBAMA LOOK GOOD BUT NOT WHAT HELPS THEM YOUR FAMILY IS FROM THE SOUTH BUT YOU SUPPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS HOW STUPID TO VOTE AGAINST YOURSELF

That's funny, here's some of Obama's statement on the morning after the attack:
"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."
http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/20...
Sure sounds to me like he's calling it a terrorist attack. Who told you he lied about it being an act of terror?
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?

Why did Obama lie for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the US?

The Constitution was written to allow a mulatto fraud like Obama the ability to become President. It seems to me it worked. Under no other system would that have happened. You seem to be woefully ignorant of that fact.
Limited government seems to be something you are opposed to. Of course, that means you are rebelling against the government of the United States and the Constitution. Would Obama be part of your rebellion?
Given the actions of the Democrats, I don't see how a civil war to restore the Constitution can be averted. The Democrats are too full of themselves and their ability to indoctrinate the population with lies to not do it, and they are too ignorant to avoid doing it.
After the smoke clears, it is a certainty the winners will hang the losers. If it's your neck the noose is being put around, don't whine. You asked for it. Take it like a man.
By the way, all these things like electricity every day and fresh produce in the grocery store and gasonline and everything else that requires capital investment to deliver to you will become significantly less reliable and scarce. Since you cannot provide for yourself, and everything in your neighborhood will already have been stolen, you will have to expand the territory you forage in to include places where there is still something there to steal.
We know you'll be coming to see us. You know you'll be coming to see us. We can discuss the issue of equality then.
You won't need to bring your copy of Roberts Rules of Order with you.
Quit your GD f*cking whining about cvil war & have some guts & do it.

The Treasury Department isn't a source of money. It is a repository of money. Incidentally, the Treasury Department is already 16.5 trillion dollars in debt. It doesn't have any money to give.
So, the question remains:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Still, to date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer that question.
You wanted to know where Obama got his money. He gets it from the Treasury Dept.

from UNCLE TOM'S CABIN or Life among the Lowly, by Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1852
The master of this particularly hated pair, known only as Simon Legree, was described by Harriet Beecher Stowe in her 1852 classic, Uncle Tom's Cabin. Quimbo and Sa*bo took their derogatory names from the warped Mr. Legree. The two were said to evolve into a mirror image of the cruelty embodied by Mr. Legree, who is described by former slaves as the worst owner of humans the South ever saw. There was, however, a sharp turn in history when Legree received, as payment of an old debt, a slave named Tom from a neighbor. It was Mr. Legree's first encounter with black dignity. This encounter would also lay the foundation for a not-so-subtle division among blacks, which exists, even to this day. The book, Uncle Tom's Cabin as well as other notable works describing the history of slavery, refers to Tom as a rugged individualist who resisted, with dignity, the dictates of an insane system of humans owning humans. Like the character of Kunta Kente in Roots no amount of oppression or cruelty could break his spirit. Word spread from state to state after he challenged his new master to stop the cruelty exacted on field hands by the overseers. During an incident when the parents of a young female slave ran to Tom's cabin for his help to prevent Quimbo from raping their daughter, Tom confronted Legree as being the source of the evil that reigned terror on the entire plantation. He offered his own back to the whip in exchange for the freedom of the young woman. The lack of fear for his own life and his willingness to stand up to Legree earned Tom the respected title of Uncle, a title reserved in those days for the most honorable male in any given plantation. Black slaves adopted Tom as their own uncle and intercessor between master and slave.
As usual the LIB DEMOCRAT LIES TO BLACKS AND MIS EDUCATES THEM RACE TO THE TOP IS A FRAUD FROM OBAMA

This was the real Uncle Tom.

In addition to performing his assigned chores with the utmost precision, he became champion of the mistreated, and eventually the political opposition to the leaders . Legree, as well as other owners of Tom, found that to mistreat Tom brought about a work slowdown. Soon, Tom lived in his own cabin, which became the place of counsel and sanctuary for slaves with grievances. His willingness to confront black and white injustice earned him a limited freedom long before the Civil War. He did encounter opposition however, but it was not from white slave owners. His biggest enemies were those black overseers appointed as leaders over the people. They were being increasingly challenged by slaves who found the bold courage of Uncle Tom very attractive. The historical fact is that a quiet but growing movement could be found in plantation after plantation of slaves who wrapped themselves around the concept of individual rights and dignity. By the mid 1820's these rugged souls, who grew in their boldness to stand up to their overseers, became known as Uncle Toms. Black leaders who discovered they had an Uncle Tom among those they supervised were struck with panic at the impending challenge to authority. A line in the sand was drawn which some believe aided the spark we all know as the Civil War. The spark of contention, lit so long ago, continues to burn in the black community even today....

You really are eat up with the dumbass, aren't you?

It required presidential authority to override the default orders of the AC-130 and Force Recon Marine units specifically positioned to respond to an attack specifically on the embassy in Libya.
If Obama was "staying out of the way", who in the White House wasn't staying out of the way and gave those orders with the authority of the president to hang the Americans out to dry in Benghazi and watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?

As I understand it, only the president has presidential authority.

So, who's actually president?

... I'm bored with playing along with your dodge. Just answer the goddam question:

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?

Just give us a location.

Jane it’s pretty simple to understand, any interview Obama does with the Liberal Media has been pre-approved by the WH 60 minutes was No difference!! That’s why I thought Kroft comments was so revealing!! Kroft on Obama:'I Think He Knows That We're Not Going to Play Gotcha with Him!' It’s pretty hard to Play Gotcha when you know the script!!
