Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

Hah, most North Koreans have never seen an American of any size or color__Rodman might scare the sht out of them.

It's for HBO films, guessing basketball will be the topic.

"renigged"? Classic faux pas, or poetic license?
You seem to lack basic comprehension skills regarding the sequestration.
This is entirely in the Republicans lap and everyone knows it; except, perhaps for you.
Please untie your horse and stagger onto it; you left it in front of the Boca Liquor Store.

Obama was ever elected, let alone re-elected? Inebriated voters, among others.

The R's still have Jeb (the smart one) wandering around in the wings but "smart" is relative isn't it?

Jeb is smarter than W__well Sarah Palin is also smarter than W and she's a fkn imbecile.

Christie can compete against the Dems as can Huntsman but those are about the only two R's that come to mind presently.

It's really too soon to get serious__time works against Republicans, ask Herman Cain.

Defending the rich may be fun on this forum, but has not served the republicans well at the ballot box.
Why, of course, the GOP is the problem. They are the ones passing one bill after another in the House to avoid sequestration and reforms.

Doesn't matter if they are the opposition and must be destroyed.

Lie...cheat...steal...whatever . Haven't said that in a while.

No, because the March spending @$95 never occurred.
When dumbass Dave's wife goes shopping and buys a $100 dress for $50, Dave thinks he has earned $50.
If the dress was needed for a special occasion like a business function then yes, I would have saved $50.00.

Next month's or next year's federal spending has not yet occurred, so we can't cut spending at all?

If federal expenditures for current programs & functions would be $200 billion more next year than the current cost, and that number is reduced to 100 billion more, then 100 billion in spending would be cut.

In 2010, the Obama administration released a long-overdue first grade evaluation of the federal Head Start program.

The evaluation which was mandated by Congress during the 1998 reauthorization of the program found little impact on student well-being. After collecting data on more than 5,000 three and four-year-old children randomly assigned to either a Head Start or a non Head Start control group, the Department of Health and Human Services found “few sustained benefits”. From the report:

"In sum, this report finds that providing access to Head Start has benefits for both 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds in the cognitive, health, and parenting domains, and for 3-year-olds in the social-emotional domain. However, the benefits of access to Head Start at age four are largely absent by 1st grade for the program population as a whole. For 3-year-olds, there are few sustained benefits, although access to the program may lead to improved parent-child relationships through 1st grade…"

Obama should know this first-hand. So why is he is still touting it in light of his own administration's report?

<quoted text>Proves just how progressive conservatism has been since Ronald Reagan & Bruce Bartlett tenure in the whitehouse and how conservatism as an ideaology has evolved and all you got do is look at GW Bush as a comparision who was really a modern liberal and labeled conservatism as Compassionate Conservatism which is nothing more than Modern Liberalism and those beliefs are more common & found on the East & West Coast States.
Compassionate Conservatism
Properly understood
Jan 14, 2013, Vol. 18, No. 17
By GERTRUDE HIMMELFARB
Defeat, like death, concentrates the mind wonderfully. It also liberates the mind. People venture to think the unthinkable, or at least, the impermissible. A new generation of conservatives may be moved to reconsider some ideas that have fallen into disuse or even disrepute. Compassion is one such idea.
Shortly after the election, Paul Ryan, addressing the Kemp Foundation, took the measure of the situation in which conservatives now find themselves. In the course of his remarks, he uttered the word “compassion” or “compassionate” five times, by my count&#8203;—&#8203;in a favorable sense. This is all the more striking because American conservatives have not always been comfortable with that word, regarding it as a vapid sentimentalism that has no place in politics, let alone economics. President Bush’s adoption, in his first term, of a policy of “compassionate conservatism” confirmed them in that suspicion, for that policy soon degenerated into what conservatives themselves derided as a “politics of compassion,” which consisted of yet another round of programs conceived and financed by the government and farmed out to “faith-based”(a euphemism for “religious”) institutions. This was all too reminiscent of the “great society”(again,“society” a euphemism for “state”) inaugurated by President Johnson, which set in motion the vast expansion of the welfare state.(That term too has fallen into disuse, the present entitlements going well beyond the “welfare” designed for the relief of the poor.)
http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/compas...
Compassionate conservatism is a political philosophy that stresses using traditionally conservative techniques and concepts in order to improve the general welfare of society.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compassionate_co...
How many millions have been thrown at the War on Poverty since the Johnson administration? And how many more are in poverty now including during the Obama administration?

Realtime can do the math. He doesn't like me doing it.
