Barack Obama, our next President

Same with Perry and Texas that wants to secede. Plugged the $6.6 BILLION budget deficit with federal stimulus dollars.
And the idiot governor still refused to accept back in 2011, 100 million dollars from federal government for road improvements, can you believe that?

The U.S. Defense Department is expected to announce Wednesday a new medal for drone and cyber war operators who have a direct impact on combat operations from far away, the AP reports:
The Associated Press has learned that the new blue, red and white-ribboned Distinguished Warfare Medal will be awarded to individuals for ‘‘extraordinary achievement’’ related to a military operation that occurred after Sept. 11, 2001. But unlike other combat medals, it does not require the recipient risk his or her life to get it.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.
A recognition of the evolving 21st Century warfare, the medal will be considered a bit higher in ranking than the Bronze Star, but is lower than the Silver Star, defense officials said.

Boehner told reporters Wednesday.“At a time when American people are asking,‘Where are the jobs?’ why would we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people.”
He added,“Our goal is to get people on that ladder and help them climb that ladder so they can live the American dream. And a lot of people who are being paid the minimum wage, are being paid that because they come to the workforce with no skills, and this makes it harder for them to acquire the skills they need in order to climb that ladder successfully.”
I'd like to sit down with this one across the table, and give him a CLUE card....to share with the REST of the bonerheads, that say SUCH IDIOTIC things sometimes.
No matter the label DUHm label.

Meanwhile, the Lawn Mowing, Snow Shoveling and Leaf Raking enterprises in the same area would be funding those free cellphones and subsidized college education...until they figured out they're being taken for fools.

The Boy Messiah is once again purchasing political support using other people's money. He's ordering businesses to raise wages while he simultaneously sticks them with ObamaCost up the kazoo and raises taxes, to boot.

Let the bleak times roll

The Washington Posr

By Dana Milbank, Published: February 12

There is something entirely appropriate about holding the State of the Union address on the same day as Mardi Gras.

One is a display of wretched excess, when giddy and rowdy participants give in to reckless and irresponsible behavior.

The other is a street festival in New Orleans.

There is, thankfully, less nudity in the House chamber for the president’s annual address, and (slightly) less inebriation. But what occurs beneath the Capitol Dome is as debauched as anything on Bourbon Street.

The State of the Union ritual is by now familiar to most Americans. President Obama leads the Democratic side of the chamber to a series of standing ovations for proposals that everybody knows won’t become law. Republicans show their seriousness of purpose by smirking or making stony faces — and by inviting as guests to the speech people such as rocker Ted Nugent, who has called the president a “piece of [excrement]” who should “suck on my machine gun.”

But this spectacle, unlike the one in Louisiana, is not all harmless fun. Obama made clear that he is not entertaining serious spending cuts or major entitlement reforms. Republicans, in their responses, repeated that they are not budging on taxes. The hard choices will have to wait for another day.

The standoff gives new meaning to Fat Tuesday: The nation’s finances are a mess, but — what the heck?— let’s have another round. No wonder a new Washington Post poll found that 56 percent of Americans have a dim view of the country’s political system.

Early in his address, Obama pronounced himself “more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists say we need to stabilize our finances.” He blithely proclaimed that the rest of the job could be done by making “modest reforms” to Medicare and “getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off.”

He didn’t mention that this would leave the country with a historically high debt level — and would be but a temporary fix before health-care costs explode in a decade. Departing from his prepared text, Obama challenged the idea that “deficit reduction is a big emergency, justifying making cuts in Social Security.”

IMO every new law proposed should be attached to the repeal of an existing law.
Concur. That keeps the field level, IMO....
