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

The people reject or approve a lot of things, that has no bearing on whether they are right, wrong, or constitutional.
The people approved of racial discrimination. They were brought in line.
They'll be brought in line again on gay marriage. They have no choice. That's what this country is about. If you don't like it, find a better one.
Putting all your hopes in "majority rule" or, more precisely in this case, the tyranny of the majority - is stupid and shortsighted because the chances you will always be the majority are slim.
The majority now supports same sex marriage, so there goes your little majority argument anyway.

So far: Maryland, Maine, and Washington.

Many of the states where it failed during the Bush administration, if you took that vote over again today, it would pass. So if we have to do a re-vote, we will.

But frankly, nobody's rights should be up for a popular vote. That's a corruption of America.

Either the legislature or the courts need to remedy our grievance.

Bigotry will lose. It always does. What's amazing is that people like you have to learn the same lesson AGAIN. You were schooled about women. You were schooled about African Americans. You'll be schooled again about gay people. You never learn. The ugliness runs deep.

Name one Republican politician that's more intelligent.
Sarah Palin?
Newt Gingrich?
Many of us would take a former governor, Sarah Palin, or a former Speaker of the House, Newt Ginghrich, over a radical progressive liberal from the slums and corruption of Chicago politics any day.

Did you know Obama won his first, second and third seats in the Illinois Senate unopposed?

Want to know why?

Obama's competitors convienetly "fell by the wayside". He won both the 2004 primary and general election for the US Senate "after tough challengers imploded when their messy divorce files were unsealed," the Chicago Tribune writes.

The NYT reported that "the Tribune reporter...acknowledged in print that the Obama camp had 'worked aggressively behind the scenes' to push the story. Some believe that David Axelrod had an even more significant role - that he leaked the initial story."

On June 25, 2004, Obama's Republican opponent, Jack Ryan, withdrew due to yet-another a sex scandal.

Don't you think that's rather odd? He won every election because every one of his opponents was "exposed" in some sort of scandal?

In his first race for office seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago's gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.

As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers.

"That was Chicago politics," said John Kass, a veteran Chicago Tribune columnist. "Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters had just one choice."

Oh get real. Newt Gingrich is an immoral scumbag, and Sarah Palin is a ditz. Being Governor of Alaska doesn't qualify you to be a store manager for CVS in a real state.

There is nothing radical about Barack Obama.

Just listen to yourselves! This is what you've been reduced to. Talking about how he defeated his composition. Key word"defeated." Honestly this is getting embarrassing. I'm embarrassed for you! So what scandal or scheme did he implement to demolish your republican representatives McCain & Romney? Let me get this right, he needed scandals to defeat his democratic challengers for senate seats, but he absolutely destroyed the republican road bumps with no need for scandals & schemes! In other words you republicans are basically no match for democrats. Look how easy it is. I just made you say something you really didn't say. F cking idiots!

In yet another bad omen for what has become known as Obamacare, a new report reveals that thousands of cancer clinics across the nation are being forced to turn away Medicare patients suffering from cancer, due to the fact that the government is no longer in a position to foot their bill.
As one cancer doctor put it,“If we continued treating our Medicare patients, at this time, we’d be out of business in a week.”
The cuts went into effect on April 1, 2013 after the federal government was forced into “sequestration,” after a special committee of Congress tried but failed to reduce government spending by at least $1.2 trillion.

It's only just the beginning.
Now the government is hiring "navigators" to help people understand the darn thing.
In California alone, the cost to taxpayers for these navigators is in the billions.
God help us.
Obamacare will end up killing instead of saving lives.

But the Boy Messiah will have his day in the sun.

You earlier said that a majority of voters voted for gay marriage and now your backing down pointing to a minority of states.

You are full of it on both ends, doodette.

Here's the problem with the whole gay thing. First let me say that I'm against it, BUT it's none of my business who or what you choose to do with your body. Now the problem is the gay community is looking for rights against American law. It's discrimination when the laws on your side & someone or someone's are denying you said rights, that's number 1.#2 it's not right that gays are trying to for & change peoples moral standings. Nobody said you couldn't be who you are & do what you want, but no one should have to change the law because they have a need to feel validated. They already receive rights that straight couples don't have. They can be on their lovers insurance . Straight couples need to be married to do so. It's just not right for one set of peoples to force their train of thought on the populace.

•1996 - Obama has his four competitor petitions invalidated; he emerges as the only candidate

•2003 - Obama begins running for US Senate; the leading Democratic candidate will withdraw in 2004 due to a sex scandal that Obama's campaign urged the Chicago Tribune to report.

•2004, Mar - Obama wins the primary with 52% of the vote

•2004, Aug - Democratic National Convention address

•2004, Nov - Obama is elected to US Senate

•2006, Oct 22 - Obama announces he is considering a run for the Presidency.

Just two years earlier, November 8, 2004, when Obama was asked why he had ruled out running for president in 2008:

"You know, I am a believer in knowing what you're doing when you apply for a job...and I would essentially have to start now before having served a day in the Senate. Now, there are some people who might be comfortable doing that, but I'm not one of those people."

He was a believer in knowing what you're doing when you apply for a job in 2004 - implying he wouldn't know what he was doing running for the presidency before serving even a day in the Senate but two years later, in 2006, he was running for the presidency.

Hillary Clinton in 2008 after becoming another victim of Obama's Chicago style politics: "Shame on you, Barack Obama! Shame on you!"

Why do the kids have to work? Let them enjoy their
school years. They are now taking college courses
in high school. What is the rush? Too much pressure
and they won't go to college. Is that the plan?
Some people worry too much about other peoples lives.
