Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

An insecure man doesn't know his manhood or hasn't reached it yet and intimidated by strong women they can't take advantage of.

Are you really that intimidated by me?

By the way, I don't think I'm any smarter than many others on here. Which is what you said about me once. In fact, many others are much smarter than me.

But I do have a lot of common sense and care very deeply about the direction this country is going.

So why don't you be the man you claim to be and tell me why I'm wrong behind your own name and standing on your own two feet?

Woodward As Washington Icon
Glenn Greenwald says Bob Woodward’s attack on Obama for only deploying one carrier to the Persian Gulf because, thanks to the sequester, there’s no money to deploy two, epitomizes Washington’s dysfunctional culture. Excerpt:
That the Obama administration might actually honor the budget cuts mandated by a law enacted by Congress and signed by Obama infuriates Bob Woodward, Washington’s most celebrated journalist. He appeared this week on the “Morning Joe” program to excoriate Obama for withholding a second aircraft carrier in the Gulf, saying:
“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’ Or George W Bush saying,‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying,‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president, because of some budget document.
“Under the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country. That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time.”
As Brian Beutler points out:“the obscure type of budget document Woodward’s referring to is called a duly enacted law — passed by Congress, signed by the President — and the only ways around it are for Congress to change it.... or for Obama to break it.” But that’s exactly what Woodward is demanding: that Obama trumpet his status as Commander-in-Chief in order to simply ignore – i.e. break – the law, just like those wonderful men before him would have done. Woodward derides the law as some petty, trivial annoyance (“this piece of paper”) and thus mocks Obama’s weakness for the crime of suggesting that the law is something he actually has to obey.
Greenwald doesn’t for one second believe that Obama is doing this out of law-abiding principle, given the president’s belief that he has the power to assassinate others. Still:
But whatever Obama’s motives might be, the fact is that what we call “law” really does require some cuts in military spending. To refuse to do so would be to assert powers not even most monarchs have: to break the law at will. Woodward is right about one point: not only would prior presidents have been willing to do this, this is exactly what they did. Indeed, George Bush’s entire presidency was explicitly predicated on the theory that the president has the power to break the law at will whenever he deems that doing so promotes national security. That America’s most celebrated journalist not only supports this, but demands that all presidents follow this model of lawlessness, is telling indeed.

Um... well why doesn't he just send Israel to the Persian Gulf? They're the only reason we're even there in the first place and they're a lot closer. Why doesn't Obama send... 53 aircraft carriers, two puppies and a big-breasted redhead to the Middle East? I'll tell you why not, cause the American soldiers would just kill the puppies and gang rape the redhead like they always do. We're probably better just sending the Israelis... What do you mean the Israelis won't do what we tell 'em? We do what they tell us... where's the love? Seriously, folks, if "The Sequester" prevents us from invading more countries preemptively at the direction of Israel then shove a cork in my ass and let the austerity begin, y'all.

Carol, well you certainly appear up to snuff on insecure men, so, um, perhaps you could spend a few minutes describing the characteristics of secure ones? Then, when I'm comfortable enough, I can stick a toe in the water and, perhaps someday, begin even emulating them.

Astonishing really. This president came up with the idea of sequestration, signed it into law and then scares the phooey out of people when it's about to happen because he won't come to the table to cut spending responsibly and says it's all the republicans' fault.
This president claims transparency but it's the people who can't see the only transparency is the transparency of hypocrisy seems like we're in a bad B-rated movie.

Bob Woodward might be the first crack in the seemingly indestructable solidarity of the liberal media.
Woodward is considered a journalist among journalists in their eyes. And if he's blowing the whistle, there has to be some serious soul searching and self-reflection about blind loyalty among some in the liberal media about now.
He wants to sell books.

Only an insecure man would do what you're doing.

Do you stalk this thread just waiting for me to come back on?

I scoured pages and pages for days and you weren't anywhere to be found.

The day after I tested the waters again, you were back.

Um... this is embarrassing.. I was lying if I ever called you smart, carol, so we're in agreement there. Look, I don't want to hurt you... DAMMIT! There I go again... Anyways, sweetie, the whole wrong/right thing doesn't sound like me either, but, if pressed, I wouldn't describe you as wrong, precisely... you're more... a tool. Yes, that's it, surely. You're a tool of those very same men that you lovingly describe as, "secure." That's why you know so much about them because they told you what to say.

Now you could be forgiven for thinking you know what constitutes a secure woman, but how in the world would you know what a secure man looks like - and then to make the spurious claim that I'm not one - unless some one told you to? A man, for instance.

Well, there's still time to set you straight here so I'll give it the old college try. What constitutes a man is a functional penis and balls. Yup, that's it, that's the whole show. I'm not absolutely sure what constitutes a woman but I have my suspicions.

You need look no further than Genesis. God didn't throw those two crazy kids out of the garden for cooking did he? He didn't make judgements about who was on top or who was on the bottom did he? God tossed them out because he overlooked the fact that, dumb as he was, Adam would eventually figure out that his penis would fit in Eve's vagina; end of story.

I eagerly await your response describing what constitutes a secure man, but be forewarned I'm taking 40 points off your score because you're a woman.

Even democrats admit sequestration was Obama's idea.

http://beforeitsnews.com/tea-party/2013/02/ge...

It's not about that anyway, Lily. The purpose behind all of this is to try and destroy the opposition at any cost, at any risk.

It was supposed to end up reflecting bad on republicans.

But with three prominent democrats blowing the whistle on this administration's threats, lies and deception in the same week, it's backfiring on him.

Both, I suppose. I get inspired and awed when viewing moonlight through icicles on a cold crisp night of profound silence. Light's journey from the Sun to the Moon, through a clear night sky and then slowed through hanging ice, through my window, through my cornea, bouncing on to my retina , tickling my optic bio-cable and finally performing its magic within the mist of my neurons......reminds me of how much more important is the journey than the destination.
