Barack Obama, our next President

Lack of leadership on the left?
I recall a certain president who launched an unnecessary war by lies, outed a CIA agent and ordered illegal NSA surveilance of the public.
And the GOP Congress that let him off the hook each time.
But tried to impeach Clinton for having sex with an intern.
Lets take a look at just one aspect of your messiahs leadership:

How do we measure the size of the economy?

Typically there's a couple different ways to do it.

One is through nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

GDP is Gross domestic product. For a region, the GDP is "the market value of all the goods and services producted by labor and property located in" the region, usually a country. It equals GNP minus the net inflow of labor and property incomes from abroad.

Government policies do directly affect the GDP in this country.

It's not convincing for Obama to suggest — as he routinely does — that he should be evaluated on the basis of whether the recovery has been better than the recession. Recoveries, by definition, are better than recessions.

So rather than holding Obama responsible for a recession he inherited, or praising him simply because that recession didn't continue perpetually, the fairest measure of his economic stewardship is this one:

How does the Obama recovery compare to other recoveries from similar downturns across the decades?

On that basis, the Obama recovery can only be graded as a tremendous failure — as it has produced the worst rate of economic growth of any recovery in the past 65 years.

Over that span, we've had 10 previous recessions and 10 previous recoveries. According to the federal government's own Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), average real (inflation-adjusted) GDP growth in the first three years after those recessions was 4.6%.
During the Obama recovery (which began three years ago, in July 2009), average real GDP growth has been just 2.2%— less than half the historical norm. Of the past 11 recoveries, the Obama recovery has been the worst.

Best-selling author Gerald Posner says much of the blame for 9/11 and the U.S. government’s negligence falls squarely on the shoulders of Bill Clinton and his administration.

In a stunning revelation made in his just released “Why America Slept: the Failure to Prevent 9/11”– Posner asserts the disaster of Sept. 11 could have been prevented and that President Clinton passed on more than one opportunity to arrest or kill Osama bin Laden.

Posner describes one incident in 1996 when Clinton passed on an easy opportunity to nab bin Laden.

“When bin Laden leaves the Sudan on a chartered commercial airliner with 150 of his top aides and his family, he goes to Qatar to refuel on his way to Pakistan,” Posner recounted to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Wednesday night.

Posner continued:“And Qatar, being an ally of the U.S. calls up and says ‘what should we do with this guy?’

“And the word comes back from the top of the [Clinton] administration ‘let him land and proceed on to Pakistan.’”

Posner’s revelations come on top of one previously reported on NewsMax.com - that Clinton himself admitted he turned down an offer by Sudanese authorities to have bin Laden extradited in 1996.

But Posner’s revelations show just how close U.S. authorities came to capturing bin Laden – but was allowed to go free and implement a worldwide terror spree.

“Why America Slept” paints a picture of gross negligence from the Clinton administration.

Common thread - all of these idiots are deranged Democrats.
Tim McVeigh, the deranged conservative hero from the right killed more innocent people than all these put together. There are at least 5 right wing morons on this site as crazy as McVeigh, you're one of them waxturd.

There's only ONE Repug (waxturd/no surprize/jimmy/goober/...) manipulating the judge-it system. This is a deliberate attempt to distort the credibility of comments made by everyone here by one scammer. I'm not going to let one narcissistic moron have 20 times the input on the judge-it system as other posters. It reflects on everyone, it makes us all look stupid. It does provide a good example of the lack of integrity of the right. Right wingers should be embarrassed that a fellow Republican is regularly attempting to corrupt the dialog.
I'll continue to expose this hoax until it stops. It's a labor of love!

Some general info.
The TARP bailouts occurred under Bush during his last month in office and totalled approximately $700 billion.
The ARRA (American Reinvestment and Recovery Act) which followed in February, 2009 a month later under Obama allocated another $831 billion.
Of that amount,$27.2 billion went to green energy projects or 3.2% of total ARRA funds.
And $200 billion still hasn't been spent! Why?

Here's a great example of waxturd awarding himself 9 (probably more by the time I type this) brilliant judge-its for a dumbass post. No one has ever explained why garbage like this impressed them because no one but waxturd assigned the judge-its.
Its also a great example of how desperate the right wing is to "win" at anything. pathetic losers.

you are a liar
The wording was "no effective oversight" of the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing loan program, idiot.

After the Democrats received no effective oversight from the Republicans, the Democrats overwhelmingly supported the war in Iraq.
The economy collapsed after two years of oversight by the Democrats Dodd and Frank.

You can't run away from these facts, dufus.

Conservatives' Self-Defeating Hatred of Chris Christie

Here are two facts about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He is tremendously popular, with an approval rating in the mid-70s. And lots of national conservatives feel betrayed by him. These facts are closely related, and they reflect why Republicans are unlikely to heed calls to change their doomed economic policy agenda.

Christie is so popular for largely the same reasons that conservatives nationally have soured on him. He has charted a politically smart course, pushing conservative initiatives when they are popular and serve the interests of his state's residents. He hasn't been willing to die on every Tea Party hill.

....What so bothers conservatives about Christie is that he has figured out which parts of conservatism are working and been willing to ditch the ones that aren't. His Ronald Reagan Presidential Library speech in 2011, full of explicit criticism of Obama, also contained an implicit critique of congressional Republicans' scorched-earth opposition to the president. Christie has often intimated that as president, as in his governorship, he would treat compromise with the other party as an important strategy rather than a dirty word.

So maybe the CPAC insider is right that Christie isn't a conservative, at least as conservatives in the U.S. today define themselves. The insider told National Review that Christie has a limited future in the Republican Party because of his apostasy. But Christie is only an apostate because he realizes that conservatism, as defined by the sort of people who organize CPAC, has a limited future in America.
