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

Obama’s economy Jobless Claims Rise by 28,000 to 385,000,$423,500 Stimulus Program on 'Correct Condom Use' Yields Zero Jobs, you remember Liberals during the Bush presidency would ask ‘Are you better off Today than Four Years Ago’ the question should be ‘are you Poorer Today than Four Years Ago?’

Call it what you want. In the last dozen or so posts you have not made one point about an issue. Instead, you choose to dissect the style of the post to which you are responding. That's not facts. That's drivel.
You are over.
No post exists to which I "cannot" respond. I choose to ignore those which do not merit a response. You have quickly become an annoyance who does not merit a response.
Now go sit on your pot and kettle and think about how to positively contribute to a discussion. Taunt all you want, I have no more attention to give you, no matter how much you passive-aggressively beg. Maybe the porno guy has something to give you.
See, more pompous sniping.

What about the history reference? Still dodging-I see.
What about the illogical comment about the invincible insane guy and hapless resource cop?

You choose not to answer when challenged and continue to blame others for your lack of intellectual honesty.

I am commenting directly to your statements and you lamely want to defend your lack of logic with name calling and pompous statements like "your dismissed" -which is funnier than hell coming from someone like you.

Pot calling kettle black repeated over and over again.

Jerry Sandusky Horrified By Behavior Of Rutgers Basketball Coach

WAYNESBURG, PA—Calling the conduct “shocking and disgraceful,” former Penn State football coach and convicted serial child molester Jerry Sandusky expressed his outrage Tuesday over the actions of now-fired Rutgers men’s basketball coach Mike Rice.“I have to say, that kind of behavior is totally unacceptable, especially from someone who is supposed to be teaching and nurturing young athletes, for God’s sake,” said Sandusky, who called the recently leaked video of Rice kicking, pushing, and screaming gay slurs at his players during practice “absolutely sickening.”“He had a responsibility to these boys, and what he did was not only completely inappropriate, but also, to be perfectly frank, downright disgusting. How a guy like that, with the mental problems he has, was ever allowed to be around these kids in the first place is totally beyond me. Unbelievable.” In addition to his harsh criticism of Rice, Sandusky also blasted Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti and university president Robert Barchi for not immediately firing the coach after the video was first brought to their attention last year.

Well then clearly the teachers should be toting AK-47's but then the attackers will simply find another weapon with greater fire power.

Unstable Man Plots To Bring Guns To Schools

FAIRFAX, VA—According to sources, local man Wayne LaPierre, an individual with a long history of unstable and dangerous behavior, revealed a detailed plot this week to bring semiautomatic weapons into schools. The disturbed man has reportedly been carefully planning this plot for months and has published numerous ranting posts to his website in which he lays out, in explicit detail, his desire to bring numerous guns into school hallways and classrooms.

While the crazed individual has, as of press time, not yet acted on his plan, sources confirmed he has every intention of doing so in the near future and will stop at nothing to see his plot fulfilled. Additional reports have suggested that the unstable man may have also been helped in his planning by a number of accomplices in the United States Congress.

They hate teachers, hate public education and now they want them to be cops too? Hell no.

This is a secret plot to close all schools and force kids to stay home and go to Jeb Bush' virtual schools; force all mothers to quit their jobs so white male control can be re implemented.

Equating a child molester with what the Rutger's coach did is not much of a stretch in logic?

Yep. He played his hand and signed it and republicans called his bluff.

Now he's just hoping we'll forget all the doom and gloom speeches.

In fact, polls say the majority of Americans say the sequester wasn't enough.

Obama's underlying motives are always to demonize the opposition to strengthen a one-party system - his party.

The good of the country is inconsequential.

This "strategy" just always seems to backfire.

'Obama praises 'tough as nails' Pelosi at California fundraiser

(CNN)- Rep. Nancy Pelosi is a "visionary" leader who "never lets ideology cloud her judgment," President Barack Obama told a crowd of donors in San Francisco Wednesday evening.

Obama is in the Golden State on the first fundraising swing of his 2nd term, kicking off a series of events that will gather $$ for Congressional Democrats looking to regain control of the House in 2014.

At 2 events Wednesday in the Bay Area, Obama reiterated the goals he spelled out during his inauguration address in January, including a push for comprehensive immigration reform. He said he expected an immigration reform measure to be passed "over the next couple of months" during his first reception in San Francisco.

He mentioned combating climate change as another priority of his second term, but conceded the politics of that issue would be difficult. Republicans are currently pressuring the president to approve the northern portion of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, which environmental activists oppose, in part, because type of oil transmitted would release more greenhouse gases than the average transportation fuels sold or distributed in the United States.

"Part of what we're going to have to do is to marry a genuine, passionate concern about middle-class families and everybody who is trying to get into the middle class to show them that we're working just as hard for them as we are for our environmental agenda, and that we can bridge these things in a way that advances the causes of both," Obama said, admitting "that's going to take some work."

Achieving his legislative goals – which also include new gun laws and passage of his proposed budget – would be helped with Democrats in control of the House, Obama told the crowd of Democratic donors.

"My hope is that we're going to see more and more Republicans who say, you know what, I didn't come here just to fight the president or demonize Nancy Pelosi, I came here to get some stuff done," he said. "And they will be greeted with great enthusiasm by me and I think by Nancy, if we could get some more stuff done right now. But, realistically, I could get a whole lot more done if Nancy Pelosi is speaker of the House."

The president will hold a total of 14 fundraising events this year for congressional Democrats - 5 each for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Each committee will also host an event featuring the president in D.C., and Obama will attend 2 joint galas for Democratic candidates.

meanwhile, in the Obama Economy, far more Americans go on Social Security Disability each month than new jobs are created in a month. they wanted a rock star, they got one.
