Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

WASHINGTON (AP)— President Barack Obama is arguing that looming government-wide spending cuts could idle military resources like naval aircraft carriers, while Republicans are criticizing the president for taking his arguments outside Washington instead of staying to work out a plan before Friday's deadline.

The president planned to appear Tuesday at Virginia's largest industrial employer, Newport News Shipbuilding, which would be affected by cuts to naval spending. Obama warned Monday that if the so-called sequester goes into effect later this week, the company's "workers will sit idle when they should be repairing ships, and a carrier sits idle when it should be deploying to the Persian Gulf."

[READ: Obama Warns Cuts Could Idle Shipbuilder]

Obama urged Congress to compromise to avoid the cuts, but there has been no indication the White House and congressional Republicans are actively negotiating a deal. The last known conversation between Obama and GOP leaders was last week, and there have been no in-person meetings between the parties this year.

Obama wants the replace the sequester with a package of targeted cuts and tax increases, while Republican leaders insist the savings should come from reduced spending alone.

YES OBAMA PASSING THE BUCK AGAIN SAME status quo!!
5 YEARS NOW IS THIS WHAT THE 51% THAT VOTED FOR OBAMA

The GOP Rage Machine and Its Mainstream Apologists

....Someone like Fournier probably thinks that he’s not supposed to take positions. But in these three columns, he took a position whether he knows it or not: He took the position that a president who has cut spending three times as much as he has increased revenue, and whose current offer, a mostly even mix of cuts and revenues, is backed by three-quarters of the American people, is being no more reasonable than a minority party that says our way or the highway whose position is supported by 19 percent of the people.

How the Sequester Will Harm Republican States

Republicans cheering for the sequester to kick in this week may find that their big-government states will suffer the most.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/02...

If Utah suffers a few months of layoffs, declining retail sales and slumping tourism, Sen. Hatch will be singing from the Keynesian hymnal.

What is going on in the Republican Party? In a major departure from the national party’s stance—and even from past statements by the candidates—at least 75 Republicans signed a legal brief on Monday that says gay people have the constitutional right to marry. The brief will be submitted to a California court this week as part of a suit against the state’s controversial Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot measure that outlawed gay marriage. Among the signatures were 2012 Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman—who campaigned for Proposition 8 during her run—and several high-profile officials from the Bush and Reagan White Houses—although prominent pro-gay-marriage Republicans Laura Bush and Dick Cheney had not signed yet.

Twenty years ago today, at about 17 minutes past noon, a massive truck bomb exploded in the parking garage of the World Trade Center. Six Americans were murdered and more than 1,000 were injured in the first attempt by Islamist extremists to blow up the buildings. Radical terrorism once largely limited to the Middle East had come to America.

While devastating, the damage that day was only a fraction of what Al Qaeda operative Ramzi Yousef and his co-conspirators intended. Yousef’s uncle, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, finished the job when hijackers flew jetliners into the twin towers on 9/11.

But the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, coming a few weeks after President Clinton’s swearing-in, was a tipping point in what would become a new type of war against the evolving threat of terrorism.

The core lesson that our intelligence community learned that day is that the United States must never underestimate those bent on destroying our freedom, no matter how remote or obscure an enemy may seem. At the time, Omar Abdel-Rahman,“the blind sheikh,” was seen as a local religious leader. Today we know he was influential in some of Al Qaeda’s highest profile plots against the United States. He was linked to but not indicted in the 1993 bombing, and he remains a symbol of jihad throughout the extremist world.

Before the attack in 1993, the name Al Qaeda was not a part of the American lexicon. The government’s initial response to the World Trade Center bombing was from a LAW ENFORCEMENT APPROACH.

Our intelligence community and military were not fully engaged until years later — when President George W. Bush elevated our fight against extremism to a multi-pronged war.

While largely unknown by U.S. intelligence two decades ago, Al Qaeda’s efforts to attack Americans both on U.S. soil and abroad were increasing. Months after the first World Trade Center attack, in October 1993, Al Qaeda helped Somali warlords attack the U.S. in the “Black Hawk Down” battle. However, our government still was not focused on the terror group, and the news media NEVER published or broadcast its name that year, even though it had been established since 1989.

In 1995, Yousef unsuccessfully tried to orchestrate the simultaneous explosions of 11 U.S. airliners over the Pacific en route to the United States. Only that year did a small group of officials begin to hunt for Osama Bin Laden.

Between that time and Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist groups were largely left alone in lawless safe havens in Afghanistan to recruit, train, raise funds and build logistical networks to conduct attacks against the United States. In Bin Laden’s 1996 fatwa, he stated that after terror attacks killed U.S. troops in Beirut and Mogadishu,“You left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead with you.”

Today, the threat landscape has changed. Though our military efforts have scattered and decimated the core of Al Qaeda’s operations and leadership, franchises such as those that attacked the BP gas facility in Algeria share its mission and have reach inside the United States.

Al QAEDA’s North African affiliates have become EMBOLDENED BY OUR TIMID RESPONSE TO BENGHAZI, Libya, have gained significant wealth by ratcheting up multi-million dollar kidnappings for ransom and they use this wealth to fund operations against the West. Today, North Africa is the next theater of operations in the war on terror.

As the administration draws down troops abroad, it must maintain a comprehensive strategy for combating the increasingly decentralized nature of the Al Qaeda movement. Just as we have expanded our counterterrorism efforts into Pakistan, whether through the use of drones, special forces or additional intelligence gathering, our efforts in North Africa must address the reality that Al Qaeda in the region is spreading and building as a threat to our homeland. These sons of Al Qaeda are committed to finishing the task they started on U.S. soil 20 years ago.

Today, as we mourn those who have been lost, we also must recognize that SECURITY NOW REQUIRES MORE THAN SPEECHES AND SANCTIONS. With each new day should come a resilient ambition to find and root out those who will use any means necessary to destroy our freedom and way of life.

why is President Obama's latest performance a box office dud?

It has all the elements that have swooned audiences before: greedy millionaires and billionaires; corporate jets; tax loopholes for oil magnates; the forgotten middle class... It even promises imminent collapse of the U.S. military, rancid meat, air traffic havoc and teacherless classrooms. This thing should be packing theaters.

But it's not. In fact, Americans don't seem to care much at all about "Sequester, the Sequel." They are either nonplused or comfortably numb over its rollout. Whichever it is, the eyes are definitely glazed over.

Obama is doing his formulaic best to drive sales. He made his big State of the Union speech in Washington, and then HIT THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL ON AIRFORCE ONE, LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES.

He's doing small-market television interviews to AVOID INFORMED QUESTIONS from the national press, and behind him at campaign stop after stop is that perfect demographic patchwork of faces in every shade and hue. He's hammering at those unhip, unpopular, unresponsive Republicans day and night by email, text message and Twitter.

But Americans remain unexcited. When you ask them about the upcoming sequester, they are approximately split on whether to make cuts or raise taxes more, depending on how the question is framed. The one thing they aren't is riled or alarmed. Even the demonstrators sent out to picket the offices of Republican House members must sense the surrealness of this moment.

Didn't we just see this film?

Isn't this the one that ends, maddeningly, "To be continued..."?

We've had the Great Depression, The Great War and now The Great Obama. His legacy will be that he is the worst President in US History. His hollywood friends have assisted him in duping America. We now must weather 4 more years of fear mongering, free spending and foolish foreign policy by this empty suit. God save America !!
