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

So you think there is some mandate that says all new revenues must be spent on additional crap?
My God, get a f*cking brain.
The deficit is the difference between money spent & revenues generated. To reduce the deficit, spending cuts and/or revenue increases lower that deficit.
And really, you don't think that the billions because of Sandy would not have been spent without that extra revenue?
No birdbrain I didn't say that. Learn to comprehend what you read. I didn't say it must be spent but it will be spent because they can't help themselves. Just like when a person gets a raise. Do they put that extra money in the bank to grow wealth and improve their lot in life? No, most likely, they blow it on something. You can decide what.

I can think of at least 5 families that have done it right here by my house.
So you are surrounded by white trailer trash, same here Flack.

Galt has great sympathy for Giffords, but she appears to be a vegetable.
No, she's not a vegetable at all, just because her speech is slow doesn't mean that at all. I think it's amazing that she survived and recovered as much as she did.

For those of you who still believe Saddam kept Iran in check...if Saddam had been left alone to develop his own nuclear program, both Iraq AND Iran would have these weapons.
Try and picture that scenario for just a minute.
I wish. Then they could proceed to blow each other up like they did back in the 80's.

Ever consider raising revenue by growing the economy instead of depressing the economy by increasing taxes?
No, Democrats raise taxes to get revenge.
Obama has said that growing the economy was the best thing to reduce the deficit.

You mean like STIMULATING the economy? You mean like several plans that Republicans refused?

Republicans say no to any new spending.

I mean you certainly aren't dumb enough to push for more tax cuts, are you?

You rightwingers are a lot like the hard leftwingers, you both want to control people lives and how they spend or don't spend their money.

Did you find yourself to be condescending towards him when he made these comments?
I will say I was a little disappointed considering the carnage that would have taken place against the Iraqis had Saddam's insurgents and al Qaeda been left in Iraq in the vacuum.

Obama was so quick to get us out of there, he screwed up the progress that was taking place in establishing Iraq's new leadership.

All the blood and treasure that WAS lost might very well have been for nothing.

He really does think it's all about him, doesn't he?

Well, he has to be a total moran if, after losing the election, his first order of business was to bring back his idiotic "personhood bill"; would that mean that eggs could vote?
The egg could sue the mother for aborting it? What about bacon?
Doesn't bacon have any rights? WTF?

After seeing what O'Reilly did, how can you support him??

First he sexually harasses a young woman on his staff.

Then he tries to get the policeman who his wife was dating in trouble, using his influence.

Now he tries to go after his wife thru the Catholic Church!!

Talk about a sore loser and woman hater!!

And you admire this man??

You're beneath contempt.

"Bill O'Reilly Divorced His Wife Then Begged The Pope To Send Her To Hell?"

"Going after the frequent flier miles is one thing, but trying to get your children's mother excommunicated from her church is another thing all together!
Bill O'Reilly and Maureen McPhilmy, the woman who divorced him and then remarried another man, aren't exactly getting along when it comes to raising their kids.
A man and his ex-wife disagreeing on parenting styles isn't exactly unprecedented, but when it gets so bad he starts a one man crusade against his ex-wife's soul?
Yikes!!
Marueen has been officially reprimanded by the Catholic Church for continuing to (1) receive communion at her local church after getting divorced and remarried Mmm, but the body of Christ is so delicious! And who can turn down a free snack? and (2) telling her kids that marriage numero dos is valid in God's eyes!"

----------

As a woman on her second marriage, this should appalling to you!!

Likely you're too ignorant to see the similarities.

This is why O'Reilly and other oppositional voices are an absolute necessity...
Chris Matthews started out one of his segments the other night with "the racist Tea Party".
Can't be anymore biased than that.
But you'd be happy if this was all anyone ever heard?
It's how Hitler convinced a lot of Germans Jews were pigs. That's all they ever heard. There were no oppositional voices.

The best channel is the Sundance Channel, great movies.
Some of them are but some border on porn. But it is nice to see other than main stream movies once in a while.

So, increased revenue do lower the deficit when coupled with spending cuts - a balanced approach like Obama wants & the Republicans reject.

The CBO aid Galt is a liar. Obamacare does not add to the deficit.

I know why you right whiners are so confused.

You are accustomed to Republicans passed bills under Bush that just spent money without any revenue generation to pay for it.

Tho there are counties that do continue to live in savage manors, far from all African counties are subject to that lifestyle. Tho you don't even know what you are saying, and a new in mind speech true feelings. I've never once said I would consider moving to Africa. I'll fill you in on a little secret, all black people aren't from Africa. That in no way erases America's bloody history, nor makes it okay. Because you choose to live institutionalized, I have nothing left to say to you. For where is the flies over your head like a dove in spring!
well then why do blacks want to be considerd as african americans ? Why do you pretend to be a victim? Why don't you stop pretending its everyones fault but your own for your own condition? When will you actualy be as strong as you want people to believe you are and do somthing for yourself instead of falsely bitching about the white man holding you back? And please please give up on the poetry ..

DUBAI -- Iran's most powerful authority said the Islamic Republic would destroy the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa if Israel launched a military attack against it.
Meanwhile, Israel warns the longer the sanctions and negotiations go on, the longer Iran has to build a nuclear weapon.
Reminds me of the sanctions in Iraq which some believe were so severe under the Clinton administration that Iraqi children starved and created much of the hostility surrounding 9/11.
Also reminds me of the period of time Saddam was given by the UN to dispose of his WMDs.
ROFLMAO__Iran's highest authority?

If Israel strikes Iran__the strike will focus on Tehran, one of the few places on earth that one could drop in a nuke without concern that neighboring nations would suffer the after effects.

Wouldn't the better solution be to save as many innocents in both Iraq and Iran?

Remember the students in the streets in Iran a few years ago - when they were risking their very lives in protest and it took Obama 9 days to comment?

Why would you want them to be blown up?

Obama knows as much as anyone, the easiest and most probable end to the Iranian crisis is getting rid of another threat.

He as much as said so.

The Iranians would probably be cheering in the streets this time.
