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

There was no helicopter coverage of the beginning of the fire, and after the fire was burning the coverage was from a great distance, with little detail. Much of the time you were watching old footage, not real time coverage.

"Fact-checking Obama's State of the Union

The president spins his accomplishments on jobs, health care and deficit reduction in annual address.

President Obama put a rosy spin on several accomplishments of his administration in his 2013 State of the Union address.

The president claimed that "both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion." But that's only an estimate of deficit reduction through fiscal year 2022, and it would be lower if the White House used a different starting point.
Obama touted the growth of 500,000 manufacturing jobs over the past three years, but there has been a net loss of 600,000 manufacturing jobs since he took office. The recent growth also has stalled since July 2012.
He claimed that "we have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas." Actual mileage is improving, but Obama's "doubled" claim refers to a desired miles-per-gallon average for model year 2025.
Obama said the Affordable Care Act "is helping to slow the growth of health care costs." It may be helping, but the slower growth for health care spending began in 2009, before the law was enacted, and is due at least partly to the down economy.

The president also made an exaggerated claim of bipartisanship. He said that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney agreed with him that the minimum wage should be tied to the cost of living. But Romney backed off that view during the campaign."

If you are satisfied with 1% GDP growth and 8% unemployment as a permanent fixture instead of a cycle, then one can understand why you like Obama.

Most normal people want growth and advancement, not just sitting on the porch collecting a check.

If Virginia and West Virginia were only one state, Romney would have carried the combined state and the Democrats would have two fewer Senators.

If you weren't a dumb, ignorant, lying libtard you would know that the vast majority of time under the previous Republican administration provided us with low unemployment, gas prices and in 2007, the highest tax revenues. In 2007, DemonBrats took control of Congress libtard and it's been downhill since then.

Your boy is in over his head and has made things worse and now the debt is out of control, gas prices (which should be factored into inflation, but are not) are higher than ever and unemployment is dismally high, uncluding the U-6, dickwad. Since you people never pay your bills or work hard you don't care.

GFY loser.

You're an idiot.

Virginia and all other secessionist states were part of the Union, which is why the War occurred.

How stupid can you be??

If Lincoln had agreed to a new Confederate Nation, Va would not be a state.

Lincoln denied the very premise of secession from the USA. It's unConstitutional.

Therefore, legally, none of the states ever left the Union. They were simply renegades to be brought back into line.

The war was begun to bring the secessionist states back into a Union that denied their legal standing to secede!!DUH

Homer is right, it's been a known legal factoid for well over a century.

You again prove yourselves to be uneducated rubes, lacking critical thinking skills.

WVA was created by an unConstitutional Act.

Deal with it, you idiot.

We are way past the "next step"

"In 2008-09 the 3D printing market took a major turn with the availabil-ity of open source manufacturing kits priced under $1,000, including various derivatives of the RepRap open source
project (discussed later) and the Cup-Cake CNC from MakerBot Industries. These devices ushered in a new group, hobbyists, who previously couldn’t afford their own personal machines.
And like all technologies, prices have continued to fall; for example, the Printrbot LC launched in 2012 for $549.50
The availability of low-cost 3D printers has spurred many to manufacture at home, bypassing numerous steps"

Technology moves at a fast pace, Realtime. Keep up or get run over.

Dweeb and Nobraina are of the opinion that an American who has gone rogue and willingly joined Al Queda, committing treason against America and causing the death of countless American Military personnel and contractors, should be treated with respect???
Sorry boys, but as a real American, I can assure you that any American who turns against our Government and actively seeks to destroy America by joining a terrorist gang, should be killed at first chance.
That goes for the wannabe folks like Dweeb, who have wet dreams about overthrowing our democratically elected Government.
Because a black guy won!!
But the 8% is not a problem, FAUX is changing, getting rid of Teabaggers and hiring Scott Brown!!
Gotta love that. Even Roger Ailes feels the ground shifting, and has fired all TP loudmouths.

Mr unsupported opinion is asking for references??

Coming from one who presents easily destroyed nonsense as fact, that's pretty funny!!

Have you ever offered any reference to support your ignorance??

Not that I've seen, and I've deconstructed many of your idiot ideas.

Like the one that American Law overrules our International Treaties......

Except that it doesn't.

And then you go silent.

Liberals would not ignore the content of last night's speech and reactions to only talk about Rubio drinking water, right?

With our high debt, unemployment, gas prices, crimes, etc. Liberals are not that brain dead, are they?
