Barack Obama, our next President

Now you're lying, not one dime is being handed to the oil cos. Tax breaks aren't giving money away, that's reserved for paying for failed green energy scams and paying for Chevy Volts,$7500 worth.$92 billion for failed green energy loans.
You & Flascktard. A discount is the same as an instant rebate in ther effect on your wallet.

Subsides are handing out money.

92 billion was not spent, you are a liar.

The subsidy for the Volt is a good subsidy. Too bad you are too f*cking stupid to understand it.

Gee,,Dumbass Floriduh wants to give oil companies billions even though they are raking in billions in profits.

Yet, the dumbfuck thinks helping an industry that will help this country quit exporting billions & create lasting jobs & provide a cleaner environment & fewer emissions is not valid.

Hey Dickweed: which is cheaper, flying GWBush to Crawford and having him stay at his own remote ranch or flying Moochelle and 60+ of her closest friends to Spain?
Don't hurt yourself doing the math. Just guess.
The government did not pay to send Michelle & her friends to France.

How much did it cost to renovate the Crawford ranch for security & advanced communications & housing for all the people that traveled with Bush.

77 trips to Crawford. Not including trips to the Bush estate in Maine.

Bush has the record for most vacation ays as President.

96 days on vacation between when he took office in January of 2001 & 9-11.

So really, with the record like that, you f*cking right whiners shouldn't be b*tching about Obama playing golf once every two weeks on the average.

You are dumb and unable to comprehend. Point out a post where I have lauded former president's Bush's term in office. He was and is a progressive, a spend and borrow republican in sheep's clothing, in a word a liberal socialists.

PS: Bush did a lousy job as president unless you compare it to president nobama's performance, the it looks pretty darn good.
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.

5. Iraq has a mobile biological weapons lab.
6. Saddam tried to buy uranium from Africa.
7. Iraq had contacts with al-qaeda to aid them in 9-11.
8. We will be welcomed as liberators.

Answer - All Republican lies.

What wrecked the good name of conservatism? Success. The conservative critique of the liberal welfare-warfare state was so powerful that special interests (such as those that President Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial Complex) and opportunistic politicians began to adopt the label and offer fame, money, and power to conservatives who would admit them to the fellowship. As well, there was another reaction against the new age of ideology and bigness, a populist reaction. Combining populist anger with the name of conservatism proved a winning formula for fundraisers and office-seekers. But instead of making the populist uprising more conservative, the effect was to remake conservatism as populism. Thus the principle conservative values of peace, community, and economic responsibility came to be lost amid wars and rumors of wars, military Keynesianism and promises of perpetual, debt-fueled growth.

The original conservatives—and some of their libertarian and even liberal friends, those who were more conservative than they knew—had it right. Today the country pays the price for the left-wing ideologies that ran rampant in the 20th century and the right-wing, but not conservative, reaction that has only exacerbated the destruction wrought by the left. To solve the country’s seemingly intractable—and, in the long-term, lethal—strategic, economic, and socio-cultural problems requires a rediscovery of traditional conservatism.

That’s the mission of The American Conservative.

The deadline for states to commit to creating their own health insurance exchanges under Obamacare was Friday, with half the states ultimately refusing to do so, leaving the federal government with that job. That includes some of the country's most populous states.


New Jersey, Ohio and Florida, several of the biggest states that had not declared their intentions, officially said no late in the week.

Twenty-five states, most Republican-led, have said they will let the federal government run the marketplaces, also known as exchanges. And seven governors from Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire and South Dakota have sought approval for the third option—a partnership with the federal government. Three of those—Arkansas, Delaware and Illinois—have already received conditional approval. A report by the Charleston, W. Va., Gazette said West Virginia also decided late Friday to opt for a partnership with the federal government.

if the feds can make this work by Oct. 1. A robust, national health insurance marketplace could ultimately be cheaper and more efficient. It could be the model that shows a national health care system works, taking us one step closer to a public national health care system.

I actually have read a few studies.
Here is one:
"Two basic points emerge from our analysis of the available data. First, only a small portion of subprime mortgage originations is related to the CRA. Second, CRA-related loans appear to perform comparably to other types of subprime loans. Taken together, the available evidence seems to run counter to the contention that the CRA contributed in any substantive way to the current mortgage crisis."

There are others.
You forgot to put numbers in your answer. You get no credit for that question. So far, your score on the test is zero.

And, you forgot to tell us how you managed to get the governments of these foreign companies to force the Special Purpose Vehicles to open their books for your inspection.

Here's something else:
Ben Bernanke was testifying before Barney Frank's committee soon after the economic collapse caused by the Democrats' subprime housing loan program in 2008. When Bernanke mentioned the words "special Purpose Vehicle", all questioning of him immediately ceased.
Now, explain to us how Ben Bernanke uttering the words "Special Purpose Vehicle" was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in Washington and get unanimous support from the Democrats for him to continue as head of the Fed.

If only they were trying to find good policy

The problem with Republicans today on public policy isn’t that they’re stuck in the 1980s; it’s that they’ve given up entirely. More often than not, what passes for Republican “policy” is just symbolic, not substantive. Think, for example, about the big GOP rollout of the spring, a balanced budget amendment — which wouldn’t be much in terms of substantive policy even if it had a chance to pass, which it obviously doesn’t. Or think of their inability (still!) to come up with an alternative to the Affordable Care Act. Again, it’s not that Republican health policy is stuck in the 1980s; it’s that there is nothing that could really be called Republican health policy. Or, to move away from Ponnuru’s topics to national security, there’s the frenzy over Benghazi, Libya, that (as Kevin Drum points out) somehow never quite is about anything, or what seems to be purely symbolic attacks on Chuck Hagel.

The first step out of the policy wilderness for Republicans, then, is for them to decide that developing substantive public policy ideas is a good idea at all. If the way to do that is to attribute it to Ronald Reagan, well, if it works then there’s nothing wrong with it. I hope so; the nation could really use a political party that advances well thought out conservative policy options. There hasn’t been one of those in years.

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.

Another goddam idiot who thinks the United States of America is some kind of a fascist dictatorship where the president can do anything he wants.

Who the f**k taught you civics?

Let's go over the spending again, idiot. If you can't remember this, write it down on your Big Chief tablet.

According to the Constitution, Congress controlls all spending, revenue and borrowing.
The Democrats took control of all the spending, revenue and borrowing for the government in January, 2007, when the debt had been increased from 5 trillion dollars to 8.5 trillion dollars between 2001 and the day the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the government.
Here's the facts, dufus:
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/

Tell us what the Democrats did to the debt and deficit since.

Did you say the Democrats doubled the goddam debt?
Did you say the Democrats increased the deficit A THOUSAND GODDAM PERCENT?

Now, answer the question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government.

You actually have to identify a source of money that can be taxed so money can be put into the Department of the Treasury for expenditure on government programs created by Congress.... you ignorant idiot.

Anyone else in the world would be embarrassed to be as ignorant as you.

Calif. man accused of raping woman he met online



.


The Associated Press


LA MESA, Calif.-- A Southern California man has been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman he met on a Christian dating website.

La Mesa police Lt. Matt Nicholass says 37-year-old Sean Banks, of Del Mar, was taken into custody Monday and booked for investigation of rape and residential burglary. He is accused of assaulting a woman in her La Mesa home in October.

Police say the two first met on ChristianMingle.com and that the October assault occurred when they met in person for the first time.
