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 ...

It was eleven pages so of course I left things out. Yes, I saw that jive sentence he wrote, but it's more than obvious this guy is not a Republican and if he ever voted, he votes Democrat. I don't think it could be any clearer. Trying to say he's a registered republican because he said a nice thing about Bush # 1 is not convincing.
This guy is a nutjob, murderer and liar. I don't believe much of what he says or "claims" to be his feelings or who he would vote for. He may have said that bunk about Huntsman but if so, why all the praise for people on the left?
He's a lefty & Obama voter for sure. He is no way a Republican, not even close.
Of course, hasn't anybody noticed the color of Dorner's skin? What else could he be but an EBT luvin' libral?

Duh!

Clinton "let Obama skate"?

In your dreams. At the time, there was no proof OBL had committed crimes against the U.S. Remember, this is before the African embassy bombings.

As for Obama, he's cleaning up the gargantuan mess you hypocrites left behind.

Try to remember Clinton left behind a balanced budget and no unfinished wars.

The point is, Obama isn't as advertised, he isn't "The Great Black Hope". He's a dismal failure. He wasn't the only candidate available to you, he was the "Magic Negro". You weren't forced to vote for him, you chose to. Now, after it's abundantly clear he's a clownish fraud, you won't admit you made a bad choice. Your solution, holding true to form, ban all mulatto candidates.

Rand Paul: Tea Party SOTU Response Not ‘Divisive’
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Sunday that the tea party response to President Obama's State of the Union address that he will deliver is not meant to divide conservatives. The idea is to give an "extra" response in addition to the Republican one, which will be delivered by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Paul explained.
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/r...
"I won't say anything on there that necessarily is like Marco Rubio is wrong."
but kinda like?
Piyush Jindal was the (R) rising star until he appeared with the Republican response to an Obama state of the union address. LMAO Jindal's manner of speaking turned him into a shooting star.

Rubio is not much better than Jindal, might actually be worse and Paul often comes across as a radical, the (R's) might as well let Bachmann join the rebuttal.

I wonder how Rand is handling his sons federal felony charges.

Makes you wonder if "the rest of the world" has a little buyers remorse too.
I'm not certain calling someone a moron then relying on their opinion does much for your argument, it does partly explain your voting the way you did.
No complaints? Good, you got yours, fcuk everybody else.
How is it you people living in states with some of the lowest taxes are the ones disgruntled & I living in the highest taxed state in the country understands the sacrifices necessary for this country to rebound? Bush f'ed up the dream of putting something away for college funds & rainy days. These are the economic times we're in. We're ni longer planning for tomorrow, but living for today. How exactly is that Obama's fault? Ya'll seem to have a problem with giving blame where credit is due. One things for sure & two things for certain, you can take an apple pie & make shyt pie, but you can't take shyt pie & make an apple pie . Ya'll want Obama to make apple pie out of shyt pie. Asshole!

What is it that Obama failed at? The rest of the world is struggling but here in the USA things are doing better every day. Even that moron waxturd brags about how well he is doing financially! Although in the next idiotic post this hypocrite whines about how bad things are?????
Tell us specifically how Obama has ruined your life. No complaints here.
Barack Hussein has failed at everything. Obamacare is a monitary nightmare. In five years no working person will be able to afford private heathcare. Just exactly what Obamacare will, and was put in place to accomplish.. Bankrupt the private system, we are quickly becoming Canada and England. Just ask the citizens of those countries how that is working out for them?

The Great Drone Panic

It is Luddism masquerading as civil libertarianism.

The influential conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer wants drones banned domestically and thinks the first American to shoot one down will be declared a national hero. Senator Rand Paul considers them a clear-and-present danger to American freedom and is offering legislation to require a warrant every time one takes flight, except to patrol the border or in extraordinary circumstances. The drone is to our liberty what the wolf is to sheep, a natural enemy.

It is understandable that drones don’t have a warm-and-fuzzy image. Overseas, they are vehicles for an ongoing campaign of assassination. The drone attack has become the signature tactic in the war against terror. Spectacularly precise strikes take out people who had no idea they were coming, in notably antiseptic (for the operator of the drone, at least) acts of warfare.

And this is the first objection to the use of drones domestically: They are weapons of war! About to be deployed here at home! Not exactly. We don’t kill people with drones; we kill them with Hellfire missiles. The drone is just the platform. By this standard, we would have no police helicopters because helicopters are weapons of war. For that matter, by this standard police shouldn’t be allowed to carry firearms, which are a weapon of war going back a couple of centuries.

As for police drones randomly watching us as we innocently go about our business, this is not a novel phenomenon. Police do it all the time. It is called a patrol. They do it utilizing all manner of technology — on foot, on horseback, on bikes, in cars, and even on Segway scooters. So long as they are looking at us in public areas where we have no reasonable expectation of privacy, our liberty survives intact.

Quote of the Day

Nicole Wallace on Marco Rubio:“He’s everything we need and more. He’s modern. He knows who Tupac is. He is on social media.”

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/2013/02...

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., dismissed recent gestures by prominent members of the GOP suggesting a softening of Republican positions as simply “lipstick on a pig.”

“I think all of this stuff is just surface stuff. It’s like lipstick on a pig,” Ellison said.“I mean, the bottom line is, the Republicans have a core values problem, not a ‘who knows who Tupac Shakur is’ problem.”

worse.

More jobs are being added every day. Obstructionist Republicans have fought Obama's jobs program tooth and nail. Republicans brand every person that's out of work a deadbeat and fight any effort to help.
So I'm doing my part by supporting efforts to improve the lives of people that need help. You and your friends on the right are doing everything they can make the rich richer....Right?

All drones are not created equal. The "surveillance hummingbird" is a one ounce drone that can hover one foot off the ground and film someone through their window or patio door__it actually looks like a hummingbird.

The little helo drones that police are purchasing in the $25K per range are also being used by professional photographers to capture never before possible scenes of wildlife, architecture, sporting events etc.

The politicians, the news readers and political pundits are unfairly "selling" all drones as killer drones and they're doing a great job of it based on Flack's and some others posts.

I have decided to leave this thread, so that juvenile "obstructinists" Like Waxman, Dean Martin, Gregory Scott, and Chylloh, that have no desire to participate in an adult manner, can continue to sit around the pot belly stove, with gun in one hand and Bible in the other, sharing demeaning and hateful drivel about this POTUS, this Administration, and our (American) Government. Their comments repeatedly posted here, go way beyond the intent of freedom of speech, and I will no longer be involved with those that portray, vile, and gutter styled, anti-American Values. There are plenty of other threads that I can post on, and other forums as well.

OldRaider you do live in a delusional World!! The Congressional Budget Office's just-released economic forecast for 2013 is dispiriting, to say the least. The GDP is expected to grow by only 1.4%, the unemployment rate will "stay near" 8%, the deficit will reach $845 billion!!
Raider… The long-term unemployment rate is over 14%, and if the labor force was merely the same size today as it was the day Obama took office, today's unemployment rate would be closer to 11%!!
