You keep blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession. You can pretend all you want but you're just the typical right whiner, a Bush defender through & through but too embarrassed to admit it.
The Republican President in 2017 will try to grow the economy instead of blaming the eight-year long recession on a boy who couldn't face up to his responsibilities.

I'll plead guilty to that. Still you must read and understand the U.S. Constitution, and what States Rights don't over ride.

You're a damn liar. BTW, why wasn't this man arrested for assault?
(CNN)-- An Idaho man accused of uttering a racial slur and slapping a crying 19-month-old boy on a Delta Air Lines flight is now out of a job.
Joe Rickey Hundley of Hayden, Idaho, was charged with assaulting a minor in the February 8 incident. His company, which initially suspended him, said Sunday that Hundley no longer has his job.
According to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta last week, the boy's mother, Jessica Bennett, 33, of Minnesota and her son were seated in row 28, seat B, on Delta Flight 721 that originated in Minneapolis.
She spent part of the flight in the rear of the plane to get away from Hundley, who she said smelled like alcohol and was slurring his speech, according to Thompson.
As the plane began its descent into Atlanta, the boy began to cry because of the altitude change and his mother tried to soothe him.
Then Hundley, who was seated next to the mother and son, allegedly told her to "shut that (N-word) baby up."
Hundley then turned around and slapped the child in the face with an open hand, which caused him to scream even louder, an FBI affidavit said.
The boy suffered a scratch below his right eye.

Apparently, he was arrested and the facts will come out at some point.

Many parents are completely unwilling to control their children on airline flights. Kicking seat backs is a particular problem. Typically, when you politely ask such parents to control their children, they react in a very negative manner.

Absent the "assault", the so-called racial slur is irrelevant.

The Republican President in 2017? Are you going to start talking about Romney winning 400 electoral votes again? Wi.th the current state of the Grumpy Old Pricks you'll be lucky to hold the House even with all the Gerrymandering and voter suppression they can muster.

Oscar Pistorius today gave a horrifying account of the night he shot dead his girlfriend claiming he mistook her for a burglar when he woke up in the middle of the night.
In a statement read out to Pretoria magistrates court, the Paralympic athlete said he had been on the balcony of his house when he heard noises from the bathroom.
Believing Reeva Steenkamp was asleep in bed, he grabbed his gun and shouted a warning before firing four shots through the door, a judge was told.
It was only then, Pistorius claims that he realised Miss Steenkamp was not in bed.'I kicked the door open,' he said.'I tried to help her but she died in my arms.'
Pistorius was sent back to his cells to spend a sixth night in jail until the bail hearing begins again tomorrow morning.

Probably, but South Africa is a renegade society where the lives of white people are under constant threat and everybody must be armed for survival.

Which would create a massive Obamacare deficit and a huge problem trying to collect the money.

Let Obama throw people in jail or out of their homes for refusing to buy insurance.

Good luck.

As far as that article read, he has yet to turn himself in. He should have been handcuffed and arrested as soon as the plane landed; he assaulted a child. Not to mention the racial slur; there were plenty of witnesses.
If this were a black man who slapped a white child; there'd have been US Marshals waiting for the plane to land.
Not excusing misbehaving children;I think there should probably be designated seats for people with children. however, no one has the right to hit another person, let alone a crying child.
