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 ...

I think "scam" is a good way to describe it. I've used the term "hijacked" a few times.
Myself and others were saying back in November 2008 we weren't in Kansas anymore. After four long years, others are finally figuring out we weren't kidding.
This president had "bad news" written all over him before the first election. For him to win a second term was like passengers on a hijacked plan asking their captors to keep them hostage.
Something I will never understand for as long as I live.
Of course you don't understand it Carol because you're an idiot. So why was he "bad news" stupid? Because he wasn't the same color as you and had a funny name? Since he's taken office we've had steady private sector job growth a robust stock market and corporate profits are at an all time high. An auto industry that was on the verge of bankruptcy is once again making profits. Home sales are on the rise and it's once again a seller's market. Everything is going in the right direction despite the GOP's blatant attempts at crashing the economy.

[QUOTE who 1="Stoneman"]Stockto n, CA city council: 7 Socialist/Dems, 2 Republican.
Birmingham, AL city council: 7 S/D, 1 Republican, 1 "moderate".
Detroit, MI city council: 9 S/D, ZERO Republican. A grand slam of Socialist/Democrats.
What do all of those cities have in common? They are either bankrupt or nearly bankrupt. Detroit is so bad they could stop providing police, fire and other services and simply collect taxes for years and not catch up with their debt.
But Detroit has a really cool dude name "Kwame" who wears a fez and some rockin' cool threads. Sort of like how we have a really cool president who looks stylin' in a suit, plays basketball and DAMN he sings good! Chicks dig him!
Is it any wonder that he can't figure out how to fix a 8% unemployment problem? Isn't it too much to expect such a really cool dude to come out with a budget in FOUR YEARS?
You maroons voted for him.[/QUOTE] You along with Romney and those with the same ideology are hypocrites. You claim jobs are created in the private sector yet blame the head of our govt for not producing jobs. Remember, "the govt doesn't create jobs." One of Romney's talking points of his disastrous campaign!

TREASON AGAINST USA wrote:
World War II and its immediate aftermath, but they then seemed to
take a hiatus. The disappearance of treason as a prosecuted crime
led to speculation that liberal democratic states would no longer
prosecute treason. Commentators argued that the crime was
antiliberal, too difficult to prove, unnecessary in times of stability and
security, and based on a sense of loyalty to the state that has become
extinct in the modern era. These assumptions are being challenged
now, however, by a treason indictment in the United States against
an Al Qaeda propagandist2 and by suggestions that the crime should
be charged against various terrorist-related individuals in Britain.3
Israel, which adopted a treason law after World War II, when the
crime was entering a period of disuse elsewhere, is now considering a
treason prosecution against an Arab-Israeli member of the Knesset
who is accused of aiding Hezbollah during its 2006 war with Israel
Section 110 of Article III. of the Constitution of the United States, it is declared that:
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason." Section 110 of Article III. of the Constitution of the United States, it is declared that:

CPAC, the Border Guard

As the borders of the conservative movement shrink, CPAC should be acting instead more like a tourist board.

....The sociology of CPAC is hard to describe to people outside the conservative movement. In a sense, itís the Comic-Con of conservatism, overflowing with stalls and barkers like a Middle Eastern bazaar. It also serves as a de facto political convention for the ideological base of the Republican Party.

And thatís why CPACís decision to not invite Christie was probably a mistake. Iíve enjoyed my visits to CPAC.(Heck, I was named its conservative journalist of the year in 2011.)

The problem is that CPAC is the first bottleneck in the Republican presidential pipeline, and at precisely the moment the party should be making every effort to be ó or at least seem!ó as open as possible to differing points of view, itís chosen to exclude the most popular governor in the country.(He has a 74 percent approval rating in deep-blue New Jersey.) Why? Because, a source familiar with CPACís internal deliberations told National Review Online, Christie has a ďlimited futureĒ in the Republican party because of his position on gun control.

Címon, really? The man is going to be reelected as a Republican. Thatís a little future right there. Also, CPAC is chockablock with speakers who have a limited future ó or even a limited past ó in the Republican party.

But most important, since when is CPAC an organ of the Republican party? Christieís future in the GOP is up to Republican voters. I happen to hew closer to CPACís apparently official position on gun control than to Christieís. But Iíd love to hear him talk about school reform and his battle with public-sector unions. Iíd love to see him debate someone on gun control or on how to cut government spending in a climate where people like Christie are so quick to demagogue crisis-exploiting spending.

Heck, Iíd like to hear debates on pretty much any and every issue dividing factions on the right, including gay rights. But CPAC has declared that gay groups canít even set up a booth this year. Itís one thing to hold firm to your principles on traditional marriage; itís quite another to say that dissenting gay groups ó that is, conservative gay groups ó canít officially hand out fliers on the premises (as they were allowed to in the past).

Some will no doubt see this as CPAC bravely holding the line. But it reads to many in the public as a knee-jerk and insecure retreat at precisely the moment conservatives should be sending the opposite message. Maybe the near third of young Republicans who support gay marriage are wrong, but CPAC wonít convince them ó never mind other young voters ó of that by fueling the storyline that conservatives are scared of gays.

Itís not CPACís fault that the borders of conservatism are shrinking, but it would be nice if at this moment it acted less like a border guard keeping all but the exquisitely credentialed out and more like a tourist board, explaining why itís such a great place to visit ó and live.

Ever get the feeling you're too dumb to pour piss out your boot, then it's fitting you're a democrat - conservatives know it and the dem leadership knows it.

"Ideologies aren't that important. What's important is psychology. The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That's why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make lots of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd."

It is true that you remain a slave to Obama, an ignorant idiot who is not only drunk and stupid, but irresponsible and without a mind capable of comprehending the difference between Obama's fantasies and his snakeoil lies and incompetence. Pray to Obama for magic hopey-changey. "It can happen". LOL

Imagine a plot to undermine the government of the United States, to destroy much of its capacity to do the public's business, and to sow distrust among the population.

Imagine further that the plotters infiltrate Congress and state governments, reshape their districts to give them disproportionate influence in Washington, and use the media to spread big lies about the government.

Finally, imagine they not only paralyze the government but are on the verge of dismantling pieces of it.

Far-fetched? Perhaps. But take a look at what's been happening in Washington and many state capitals since Tea Party fanatics gained effective control of the Republican Party, and you'd be forgiven if you see parallels.

Tea Party Republicans are crowing about the "sequestration" cuts beginning today (Friday). "This will be the first significant tea party victory in that we got what we set out to do in changing Washington," says Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.), a Tea Partier who was first elected in 2010.

.....What is the President's response? He still wants a so-called "grand bargain" of "balanced" spending cuts (including cuts in the projected growth of Social Security and Medicare) combined with tax increases on the wealthy. So far, though, he has agreed to a gross imbalance --$1.5 trillion in cuts to Republicans'$600 billion in tax increases on the rich.

The President apparently believes Republicans are serious about deficit reduction, when in fact the Tea Partiers now running the GOP are serious only about dismembering the government.

And he seems to accept that the budget deficit is the largest economic problem facing the nation, when in reality the largest problem is continuing high unemployment (some 20 million Americans unemployed or under-employed), declining real wages, and widening inequality. Deficit reduction now or in the near-term will only make these worse.

Besides, the deficit is now down to about 5 percent of GDP -- where it was when Bill Clinton took office. It is projected to mushroom in later years mainly because healthcare costs are expected to rise faster than the economy is expected to grow, and the American population is aging. These trends have little or nothing to do with government programs. In fact, Medicare is far more efficient than private health insurance.

I suggest the President forget about a "grand bargain." In fact, he should stop talking about the budget deficit and start talking about jobs and wages, and widening inequality - as he did in the campaign. And he should give up all hope of making a deal with the Tea Partiers who now run the Republican Party.

Instead, the President should let the public see the Tea Partiers for who they are -- a small, radical minority intent on dismantling the government of the United States. As long as they are allowed to dictate the terms of public debate they will continue to hold the rest of us hostage to their extremism.

<quoted text>
The vote was 70/30 (close) in favor of the war, and included ďyesĒ votes from Senate Democrats such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and Harry Reid. While the liberals claim that it was Bush who solely brought us into the war, they dodge the simple fact that authorization could have easily been denied!
The Democrats held a majority of 51-49 in the Senate, and could have simply blocked the vote. However, they stood with President Bush and overwhelmingly supported the war 3-1. If liberals are so anti-War, how come they never share blame for starting the Iraq War?
BITE ME!
Oh, I'll bite you, all right. Like a black mamba going after a rat.

In your exhuberance to mislead, what you deliberately left out was the steady drumbeat of propaganda by Bush and Cheney, repeating over and over that Sadam had resurrected his nuclear weapons program and had the missiles to deliver them.

Those lies achieved Bush and Cheney's goal of stampeding Democrats in an atmosphere of panic. The WMDs were non-existant. But you can't blame Democrats for taking Bush at his word at that moment.

As for the breakdown of the Iraq Resolution vote:

In the House:

Democrats YEA 82 No 126
Republicans YEA 215 No 6

In the Senate:

Democrats YEA 28 No 21
Republicans YEA 48 No 1

Tally up the YEAs and the total for Democrats was 110 versus 263 for Republicans.

Hence, your side supplied over 2/3 of the pro-war vote.

Now go *suck* an egg, fuk-weasel.
