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 ...

Add Speaker Boehner to the growing list of Republicans accusing the White House of a conspiracy to release illegal immigrant detainees in order to frighten Americans into demanding an end to sequestration cuts. Immigration officials say several hundred detainees are being freed due to the upcoming budget cuts this week.

"I'm looking for more facts," Boehner told CBS News, "but I can't believe that they can't find the kind of savings they need out of that department short of letting criminals go free."

He added that the situation was "outrageous."

"This is very hard for me to believe, that they can't find cuts elsewhere in their agency," Boehner said.

The bottom line is Republicans do not under any circumstances want to work with the president. Holding up Hagel's confirmation and he's a Republican, ostracising Christie for working with the president.
Of course then they go on and spew their lies about how the president is devisive and won't work with Republicans.
Bunch of friggin' liars all of them.

5 Sequester Facts to Know Before Committing Suicide
1. The Cuts Are Tiny!

The actual cuts in fiscal year 2013 are only $44 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The rest don't even take place until 2014 or later. Whether you use $44 billion or $85 billion we're talking about 1 or 2 percent of total government spending.

2. Spending is Still Going Up!

Even with the sequester, the federal government is expected to spend more this year than it did last year. The government spent $3.5 trillion in 2012 and i expected to spend $3.6 trillion in 2013 (see Summary Table 1).

3. The Pentagon Won't Starve!

The largest chunk of cuts will come out of the defense budget, which has doubled over the past decade. The Pentagon will still have about $500 billion at its disposal, not counting war-related and emergency appropriations.

4. You Can't Cut Nonexistent Programs!

The White House's Office of Management and Budget says the sequester will cut a whopping $2 million from the $20 million budget for the National Drug Intelligence Center. That sounds pretty bad - until you realize the Drug Intelligence Center closed its door in June 2012.

5. It Was All Obama's Idea!

The whole damn sequester was the Obama administration's idea. As the Washington Post's Bob Woodward has reported, despite Obama's denials to the contrary, "the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House" as part of the deal to raise the debt limit back in August 2011.

So as members of the president's cabinet and party rail against the draconian nature of the sequester and the unfairness of it all, it's worth keeping in mind that these cuts are genuinely puny.

And that the president has nobody to blame but himself.

He sends someone out with briefings but rarely asks for input. He doesn't take questions from the press and insulates himself from any potential criticism.
The republicans met him halfway with his "balanced approach". He reneged on his half of the bargain. Now he wants to raise taxes yet again without addressing spending cuts.
This is not acceptable leadership.
He has employed every scare tactic in the book to convince you the world is coming to an end on Friday just to get his way.
Again, this is not acceptable leadership. And you, too, deep down know it.
The Republican Party is doomed.

The Department of Treasury isn't a source of money. The Department of Treasury is a repository for money collected from a source of money.
If you are still confused, read the Constitution where it states how bills of revenue can be generated. Your answer requires that Congress pass legislation to tax the department of Treasury to put money into the Department of Treasury.
I know that makes sense to Democrats, but to any person who actually thinks, it is a ludicrous answer.
To answer the question, you have to identify a source of money sufficient to tax to pay for Obama's government.

Obama rarely meets with Democrats, too. He's not even involved in government until the Democrats need him to read something from a teleprompter to promote their Marxist agenda.

In other news Iraq's prime minster is very worried about the Syrian conflict spilling into Iraq and creating even more sectarian violence and opening avenues for al qaeda style groups to gain influence further destabilizing the Middle East.

It's been more than three decades since Texas went blue in a presidential election, but a top Republican there fears that the GOP may not have the state's 38 electoral votes in the bag in 2016 if Hillary Clinton is at the top of the Democratic ticket.

Steve Munisteri, chairman of the Texas GOP, told Real Clear Politics in a story published Friday that Clinton would strip the state of its "solid Republican" status and insisted that national Republicans are taking her candidacy seriously even in the crimson red Lone Star State.

A survey released late last month from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed Clinton more than holding her own in Texas when matched up against potential 2016 contenders such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). Democrats have not carried Texas in a presidential election since 1976, when former President Jimmy Carter won the state.

Charles Krauthammer: Chris Christie CPAC snub a mistake

I think this is a vast overreaction and its a mistake. Hes a leading Republican, hes obviously of presidential timber, hes got the highest popularity of any governor and hes in a blue state, Krauthammer said Tuesday night on Fox News.

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/02/charles...

I think its a mistake. I think theyre trying to define legitimate ideology fairly narrowly and they want to rule people out. Here we are with four years to go until the next election, we ought to keep the tent wide and open and let the people, Republicans decide,
