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 ...

Look at the history of politics in the country. You will be amused at how similar the rhetoric and entrenched attitudes of 18th century America resembles today. All this is nothing new. It's Political Party Groupthink, the greatest danger of our times. And you suffer from it worse than most. Too many brainwashed people, who scream that the other side is brainwashed while wallowing in their own brand of manipulation. If Americans ever stopped having nasty screaming matches about non-issues they might realize that both parties are made up of rich politicians who are screwing them left and right. But you keep flapping that piehole honey, defending your 'side'! Lol.
Just glad someone like Dr. Carson is not afraid to come right out and say what a lot of us are thinking.

It would be sweet poetic justice, however, if he were to become the next black Republican president.

Then we'd get to call you all racists. Fortunately for you, the majority of conservatives don't stoop that low.

Do you think President Obama puts the interests of the nation first or his personal ideology?

The fact still remains there have been plenty black folks that have grinded their way out of poverty & made something of themselves, some even neurologist! Barack Obama still remains to be the only acknowledged black president! I've always been 1 to give credit where credit is due, which is why I give George W Bush no credit at all! Dr. Ben Carson is definitely credit worry, but you all take his words as long because it caters to your own ideology! Then you use that as some type of bargaining chip 2 black people with whom he doesn't represent witheth his thoughts! Then when we don't agree you use one against the other like the Willie Lynch letter. The date changed, but times are definitely the same!
WRONG.

I respect the WORK of the man. Brain surgery is an impressive vocation.

Mere PoliTICS-not so much (unless someone is actually doing an exceptional job FOR the people, by the People of the People-and mere strong arm demanding, division and destruction does NOT constitute any such thing)

I have no idea what the rest of your incoherent babble is about, nor do I care.

Dr Carson is an impressive speaker and a pleasure to listen to.

do you have a problem with that?

TOO bad -for you, not for those of us who enjoy listening!

They never learn from history. Just like with Syria. They will fart around trying to be the opposite of Bush till we have a full fledged war all over the middle east and Africa.

Target, among others, to start scanning consumers driving license when buying age related products. No license, no booze or cigarettes. Period! Did you think that bar code on the back was just going to be for the DMV?

oh. so you mean he might not like Obama but he won't lie while he tells you why.
If he's more liberal than conservative, he most certainly will lie. Though not liking Obama is admirable in and of itself, he's way too liberal for me.

It's called principles. Just as I don't compromise on conservative principles, Obama hasn't on Marxist principles. I'm not willing to support anyone just because he's a little less liberal than Obama.

interview comments...

I agree with 99% of Dr. Carson's positions. I vehemently disagree with his position on rewarding 20+ million illegal aliens with citizenship. This country desperately needs someone who will restore law and order in this country, not one more person who adjusts existing law to suit their personal agenda/preferences.

Sure seems so. Blacks and minorities dependent on government are the real tokens. Democrats only use them for votes and to keep them in power, but no one will ever come right out and say that.

Even though I just did.

Dr Carson is a good messenger however, he is not a politician ...which I don't care...but he would be destroyed if he ever ran for office. Sorry, but unless you have ever entered a political race, you don't have a clue how tough it's going to be...I expect Dr Carson is simply selling his book right now and will soon disappear

We should not be rushing to put this man pedestal. He is saying all the right things right now,but what do we really know about him....not much? This is how we ended up with Obama! We should be in the trust but verify mode right now.

Oh, I forgot to add they will create a customer id number for you that will track your purchases so that they can send product specific advertisement to you based on your purchases.

"Despite his academic improvement, Carson still had a violent temper. In his interview with the American Academy of Achievement, he recalled trying to hit his mother over the head with a hammer because of a disagreement over what clothes he should wear. In a dispute with a classmate over a locker, he cut a three-inch gash in the other boy's head. However, at the age of 14, Carson reached a turning point after he nearly stabbed a friend to death because the boy had changed the radio station."

You hypocrites would have called him a thug and Galt would have applauded if a Zimmerman had shot him...and Herman Cain is a cheater who used his position to sexually assault white women...Alan West should have been court martialed, but they're all great guys when you want to attack the president.

liberal?

Here are a few examples of Obama's effective conservatism:

His stimulus bill was half the size that his advisers thought necessary;
He continued Bush’s war and national security policies without change and even retained Bush’s defense secretary;
He put forward a health plan almost identical to those that had been supported by Republicans such as Mitt Romney in the recent past, pointedly rejecting the single-payer option favored by liberals;
He caved to conservative demands that the Bush tax cuts be extended without getting any quid pro quo whatsoever;
And in the past few weeks he has supported deficit reductions that go far beyond those offered by Republicans.

Further evidence can be found in the writings of outspoken liberals such as New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who has condemned Obama’s conservatism ever since he took office.

Conservatives will, of course, scoff at the idea of Obama being any sort of conservative, just as liberals scoffed at Nixon being any kind of liberal. But with the benefit of historical hindsight, it’s now obvious that Nixon was indeed a moderate liberal in practice. And with the passage of time, it’s increasingly obvious that Clinton was essentially an Eisenhower Republican. It may take 20 years before Obama’s basic conservatism is widely accepted as well, but it’s a fact.

Rush is right!!! He's got you progressives scared to death! The man isn't going to run for office. He can do much more out of office than in. Did you know he and his wife sponsor hundreds of scholarships each year? That he was brought up poor? The man is a genius with real accomplishments. Not some carnival backer community organizer.

Exactly, and the notion that if a person is passed out drunk that she becomes fair game is outrageous. The girl was underaged and drinking, as were all of them. Someone should have called her parents and told them to come pick up their daughter.
Hopefully this case will have been a wake up call to teenagers regarding drinking, sex, taking and posting photos of someone naked and being abused, this is never funny and that fact that they thought it was is testiment to the sickness that has become part of our society. Joy and laughter at the expense of someones misfortune and pain is sadistic.
This case should be discussed in all schools, by all coaches. Football players have that cocky attitude that they are above the rules. And, the coaches encourage and cover it up.
Galt generally agrees, but doubts this was the first time this individual got drunk, came home drunk, and wonders where the parents are in situations like this.

Where does lily draw the consent line on alcohol level?

When your daughter does drugs with her friends and then has sex, is that "rape"?
