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 ...

Pentagon:'significant escalation' of Syrian war into Lebanon
It's not significant but it is an interesting turn of events.

If Syria attacks Lebanon the US, Israel, Turkey and others will enter the fight and the Assad regime will live happily ever after?

Maybe when pigs fly__never the less it is an interesting development going into the third year Syria's civil war.

The Syrian regime is destroying Syria rather than change leadership and has recently begun using cluster bombs within it's own cities and certainly creating more refugees.

On ABC’s This Week, hosted by Martha Raddatz, Speaker of the House John Boehner appeared to downplay the problem of national debt while loudly proclaiming his wonderful relationship with President Obama.“The president and I, as I have made very clear, have a very good relationship. We're open with each other. We're honest with each other,” said Boehner.

“Do you trust President Obama?” Raddatz asked.

“Absolutely,” Boehner replied.

“Absolutely?” Raddatz emphasized.

“Absolutely,” Boehner repeated.

Framing Republicans as out-of-touch radicals, Raddatz then asked,“President Obama says these meetings are intended to find members of the common-sense caucus who he can make a deal with …. Are you not a member of the common-sense caucus?”

Boehner, falling for the trap, shot back,“I’m part of the common-sense caucus. We appreciate the outreach. We appreciate the engagement from the president. But it’s gonna take more than this if we’re serious about solving our problems.”

Then Boehner dropped the bombshell. Raddatz, after quoting President Obama saying we don’t have “an immediate crisis in terms of debt,” asked Boehner for his thoughts. And Boehner eagerly agreed:“We do not have an immediate debt crisis. But we all know that we have one looming …. It could be a year or two years, three years, four years. It’s not an immediate problem.” And then Boehner said he agreed with Obama on the immediacy of the problem.

With Republicans fighting tooth and nail to implement solutions necessary to reducing the national debt, Boehner’s language certainly undermines the public relations narrative set by conservatives. A House GOP aide angrily told Breitbart News today,“This undercuts the fight House conservatives have waged since 2010. Our efforts to prevent a debt crisis we will certainly face should never be minimized.”

I'd deny just about anything before being fed to the lions. Except my faith.
Some truths are worth dying for.
Where did you get the notion that people could get themselves out of "death by beast" in the Roman Empire by denying something? Don't know much about the bread and circuses, huh, dumb carol. I'm sure Peter told that same story about never denying the "faith"...oh, wait, according "legend" he actually did say that. How'd that work out for him? BTW, St. Paul seems to be one flamin' closet case, n'est pas? What-ev...you do remember we were talking about the concept that a factually historical Jesus lived could not be proven, not disputing that the Christians as founded by Paul, suffered various inhumanities under the Roman Empire, as did Jews, Celts, Gauls, political rivals, etc.

Reread your nonsensical post Carol and get back right after you use google-bing or whatever to tidy up your knowledge of "Christians Fed To Lions."

You see that, darling? Now they're accusing you of being me which is what I've been telling you all along! We were made for each other! I suppose the good thing about an unconsummated cyber-relationship is that you don't have to shower as often.

Do they really want a run on the banks?
Tell you what...if it was a US policy, I would clear out my
bank acct, and we would most likely have a run on the banks.
And most people would trust the FDIC ins. but I place no faith
at all in the FDIC.
You wouldn't have chance to clear out your account, because, as in Greece, the banks would be closed.

Who says a financial crisis would be necessary? Obama could just levy a "tax" on all bank deposits above a certain amount to help "balance the budget." And the Obama mob would cheer.

Given a choice between Assad and radical Islamists, best to let them fight it out.

Kind of like gangsta wars in Chicago.

So, your plan is to give women an equal share of the promotional opportunities without an equal share of the risk.
In the case of Jessica Lynch, she f*cked up resulting in the death of other soldiers and was rewarded by being treated as a hero.
That was a stupid reply even for a fkstk such as yourself.

Lynch was a scrawny teenaged 110 pound little girl who joined the military to get out of her circumstances and build credits for college. She achieved the rank of PFC and was simply along for the ride that someone else fkd up.

She's 10 years older now__you can find the rest of her story on line.

If it is safer in a foreign bank then why not.
'Safer?' Then how'd we get to the despicable Cyprus, pray tell? You put money in a foreign bank to hide it from American tax laws and for no other reason. If you are an American and seek to dodge American tax laws then you are a criminal and belong with the other criminals bein' ass-raped by bubba who's doing 20 to life for selling pot to an undercover police officer whose $48,000 a year salary is paid for by tax money from you, theoretically. You want 'safety' all right, but you want it for you and nobody else.

Raddatz is an Obama stooge.

Boehner's stand is correct to fend off Obama demands for immediate tax increases, in favor of staged spending reductions.

Obama was and is a reptile that changes his colors when it's safe. He does not represent all Americans, nor does he care about what damage he does. No budget, irresponsible budget & debt. No pipeline, no jobs, the inept idiot is only good at conniving and pushing the far left agenda upon this county.

Lily is just a plain old hypocrite.
