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

Whether you like it or not, Romney hit the nail right on the head the other night. He said (paraphrasing) never before has any president wanted bad things to happen just to blame the other guy.
He even *creates* those bad things to blame others.

Now...when Iran finally begins lobbing Nuclear Missiles at us, the Boy Messiah can then declare Marshal Law, crown himself America's Tribal Chieftain and make Dennis Rodman our Defense Secretary.

The government would set the prices for everything; the doctors, hospitals etc submit for payment; the government negotiates the prices of pharmaceuticals as well. Costs are high because of greed.
What if the doctors and hospitals say "f*ck you"?

Price fixing never works.

Patients will need to bribe doctors in cash to get treatment.

Greed?

How much do you think a trained physician should earn after investing 10 to 12 years and $1 million in education and training?

Yep. Just baiting the hook.

I don't know, in Canada it is included in your income tax. Depending on the Province, in BC they charge a premium, in Quebec it's included in income tax.
If they open up Medicare for everyone; then there could be a buy in as a premium or an increase in taxes. Everyone is covered, no insurance companies, no co pays, no deductibles and no refusal for pre existing conditions.
And the streets are paved with gold and it never rains or snows.

Arianna Huffington has a talk with Carl Bernstein about Bob Woodward....
I called Carl Bernstein to ask what he thought of his old partner's behavior. He was loyal as ever but he did say something very revealing -- and unintentionally damning. "This investigation," he told me, "has cast a constant searchlight that the White House can't turn off the way it has succeeded in turning off the press. So their methodology and their dishonesty and their disingenuousness -- particularly about how we went to war -- as well as their willingness to attack and rough up people who don't agree with them are now there for all to see. They can't turn off this searchlight, which is shining on a White House that runs a media apparatus so sophisticated in discrediting its critics it makes the Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Ziegler press shop look like a small-time operation."

Bernstein was Woodward's go-fer in Watergate.

Despite the sequester, the Secret Service isn't going to skimp when it comes to protecting President Barack Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday.
Speaking at a Playbook breakfast at the Newseum, Napolitano said the teams of Secret Service agents assigned to protect Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be sheltered from the broad spending cuts required as part of the budget reduction that that kicked in on Friday.
"Obviously, one of the major responsibilities, if not the major responsibility, of the Service is the protection of the president and the vice president. So, the protective side, we’re going to protect that, of course," Napolitano told POLITICO's Mike Allen.
"What it really means is on the investigative side where we handle all kinds of financial, identity theft, cyber crime, counterfeiting cases that originate not just here but around the world, the Secret Service is the lead on many of those, those activities are being cut back," Napolitano said.
This is a roundabout way for Cow Napolitano to say that those $8 million dollar White House vacations will continue unabated.

"Let them eat Oscars!" says Moochelle.

The quality of American Health Care will plummet(NOT, of course, for the Boy Messiah).

Americans who can afford to will be routinely getting heart transplants and hip-joint replacements in places like India and Brazil.

Those who can't afford to will simply die.

Well, douchebag, you going to enlist or not? Unca Obama is going to need you because Iran is going nuclear and Obama can kiss their asses.
No problem.

Obama's economic sanctions will stop Iran's nuclear weapons program dead in its tracks.

Praise Lord Obama, King of the Poor.

Those who can afford quality medical care will not need to go elsewhere. There will be a two-tier medical system: quality care for those who can pay and free Bangladesh care for the masses.

This doesn't make any sense. Harry Reid actually said Obama doesn't talk with a Negro dialect unless he wants to.

He later apologized, but why would you jump all over someone else for applying the same term to Obama?

Segment of John Boehner's interview with David Gregory on Meet the Press Sunday.

JOHN BOEHNER: There are smarter ways to cut spending than these automatic across the board.

DAVID GREGORY: But Mr. Speaker that's just not true. They've made it very clearly, as the president just did, that he has a plan that he's put forward that involves entitlement cuts, that involves spending cuts, that you've made a choice as have Republicans to leave tax loopholes in place. And you'd rather have those and live with all these arbitrary cuts...

JOHN BOEHNER: Well, David that's just nonsense. If he had a plan, why wouldn't Senate Democrats go ahead and pass it? The House has acted twice over the last ten months to replace the sequester. The president got his tax hikes on January the first. If we're going to get rid of loopholes, let's lower rates and make the tax code fair for all Americans.

..."If he (Obama) had a plan, why wouldn't Senate Democrats go ahead and pass it?"

Good question.
