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

This "strategy" just always seems to backfire.
Give it up babe the TeaMutts, Paul Ryan, Santorum and others wanted even deeper cuts__this too will haunt the Republicans until they decide that cooperation trumps divisive rhetoric.

BTW Obama can't run for a third term__just a reminder.

Tony C... maybe you wasn’t paying attention, Not Surprise, Senator Reid said the president requested Sequestration in Budget negotiation the President Sign IT!! The answer to your question YES!!
Gee...and WHY did that happen?

Was that President Obama's first choice?

Or was that is desperate attempt to get the frickin morons in Congress to stop risking the whole country for their political gain? Did you forget how they failed so miserably that it caused our credit rating to go down?

Blaming Obama for the sequester is like blaming a firefighter for saving the baby and losing the house.

You all just WANT him to be wrong so badly that you'll make up anything.

There is no rational basis for blaming Obama for the sequester. Those right-wing Republicans in Congress caused the entire problem from start to finish.

End of story.

Hitler was no more anywhere near the rightwing ideology as he was the leftwing ideology.
However, Obama most definitely wants control. Why is he growing government by leaps and bounds, usurping his authority by bypassing Congress on major policy decisions, making government and himself the CEO of corporations and demonizing the opposition in every other word he says?

It was the 'The Shining City Upon A Hill' until liberalism took over. The erosion of social mores brought on by burgeoning governmental largess and the pacification of a largely foreign dependent class, overloaded the treasury, which in turn led to the usurpation of wealth and inevitable collapse. Excessive government killed Rome.

Empty predictions. You might as well predict who will win the World Series in 5 years and we will take it just as seriously.

North Korea is moving a medium-range missile to a site in the east of the country, a U.S. intelligence official said Thursday as tensions with the nuclear-armed state continued to escalate.

The official declined to say where the Musudan missile was headed, but the North has used a site near the Russian border on the coast for its missile tests in the past.

South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin told lawmakers Thursday that the missile had "considerable range" but not enough to hit the U.S. mainland, according to The Associated Press.

Hope the Associated Press is right.

Could this be the other shoe I've been anticipating to drop - the trigger finger of the growing global tensions that causes an unknown catalyst worldwide?

Gee, sure hope not.

Spin, spin, Fox spin.

If the Republicans were genuine participants in this government, then Obama could work with them. They had no interest from day one.

The sequester was stupid.

Obama's "underlying motives" are to fix the country. Four year olds in the House obstructing everything without reason, opposing THEIR OWN ideas, are THE problem.

This is a serious question to anyone.
Theoretically, if you knew about the Holocaust even before we entered the war, would you not find this sufficient enough reason to become involved?
The question is in light of the same violation of human rights taking place in North Korea.
I would appreciate a serious response from anyone.
Well, dear, let's start by saying your use of the term, "theoretically" is redundant so don't do that anymore. You could take it right out of the sentence and the sentence would make more sense. Secondly, who cares? The Holocaust was the Holocaust, the christians did nothing to stop it, it was them doing it, in fact. Pay attention to your christian neighbors, that's the message.

I have no idea what's happening in North Korea, not much I suspect, but it seems frightfully important to you. Why is that? Why do you always seem to need to be be worried about something? The very first second the North Koreans raise a WMD into a launch position, they will alllll disappear from the planet. Don't sweat it. Nobody'll miss 'em. Do you know any Koreans? They're the most unlikable people on earth. Let 'em go. Chill, bitch.

I read an article after his death actually from a liberal-leaning source.

Everything I said about Chavez is true. Maybe you should find the same article and read it.

There are plenty to choose from.

Chavez systematically came into power through control of the media and the private sector. His motives were also to make things easier on the poor. Maybe if his goal wasn't increasing government and control, the private sector would have grown and more opportunites provided to the poor.

Why do I always feel like I'm talking about Obama when Chavez is the topic of discussion?

Do you do any research at all?

This president has alienated republicans from day one. He has no interest in working WITH them, just wants them to do everything HE wants and then blames them if they don't.

Mandatory car insurance requirements are routinely ignored, particularly in major cities.

Homeowners insurance is not required by law.

However, most homeowners insurance policies do cover personal liability.

Your liability if someone steals your firearm and uses it, legally or illegally, is exactly zero.

<quoted text>of course not, nothing is ever Oblamer's fault. the devalued soon to be extinct buck never stops on his desk.
'the White House originally proposed the sequester - House Speaker John Boehner has dubbed it the "Obamaquester." They point to reporting from the Washington Post's Bob Woodward, who has described how then-White House budget director Jack Lew and legislative liaison Rob Nabors hatched the idea of a trigger - a delayed-onset package that would ostensibly force Congress to reach an agreement on the budget - during the height of dramatic negotiations on raising the federal debt ceiling during the summer of 2011.
President Obama, Woodward reported, signed off on the proposal, and the result of the debt ceiling negotiations - the 2011 Budget Control Act - created a congressional "Super Committee" to reach an agreement on deficit reduction and included the spending cuts in the sequester as a fallback if the committee failed.
The committee failed; the sequester looms.
Woodward also accused the president of "moving the goal posts" by demanding that a replacement for the sequester include a balance of spending cuts and new revenue. "His call for a balanced approach is reasonable," Woodward wrote in an op-ed for the Washington Post, "and he makes a strong case that those in the top income brackets could and should pay more. But that was not the deal he made."
Woodward explained that the final deal reached on the debt ceiling "included an agreement that there would be no tax increases in the sequester."
Congressional Republicans have brandished Woodward's reporting as evidence that the administration is solely responsible for the budgetary chaos, but the White House isn't having it.'

of course it isn't Oblamer's fault. and because he & Dems are pushing mortgages for minorities with bad credit AGAIN...he'll be blaming someone else for the major bank default due to bad loans.
"The committee failed." I rest my case.

This deserves more of an answer.

If I had a child who was murdered, regardless of the method, no amount of money, insurance or otherwise, would be sufficient or even necessary.

The only compensation that I would desire would be the prompt execution of the murderer, through the legal process or otherwise.

The parents of Newtown were denied this satisfaction.
