Barack Obama, our next President

Your assessment of Obama is way off, reads like a Fox News script.

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?
Where have you been?
Are you dizzy from spinning so hard?

No, he definitely does not want control. That you would even suggest this proves your own bizarre bias.

He is not growing government by leaps and bounds, nutcase.

He is not usurping authority. Congress is an obstacle because they made themselves an obstacle. We still need to keep moving as a country.

The CEO of corporations...come on, what the hell is wrong with you?

Jane Says…Wasn’t it Pelosi that said ‘Unemployment Benefits Creates Jobs’ she also told her colleagues if they voted for Obamacare their constituents would love’ Them’ the Economy in the Tank and most of those Colleagues that voted for Obamacare are now Unemployed Politicians!!
by November 2014 more negative consequences of obamacare will have hit the formerly oblivious/uninformed--they ones who were busy watching Honey Boo Boo and American Idol last fall. especially when they can't see a doctor and/or find themselves dumped into Medicaid. the only hope to offset that negativity will be amnesty for more takers, since they will vote democrat. the upper middle class and wealthy will pay out of pocket for private healthcare and pay the tax for not having insurance. everyone else will be waiting in line to see a doctor, behind the illegals. if you want to see a glimpse of it now, just go to any emergency room on a busy night.

Do you understand what a resource officer is? Apparently not.
Oh, pick me, pick me! We've had a resource officer, closed circuit cameras, and metal detectors here forever it seems. About six years ago, one of our SAFY kids (three-hundred-pound African Queen) went nuts in study hall. Resource officer was in his way as he charged down A-hall. Long story short, kid climbed up his back in a smashing take down, and the officer (about 27) retired on disability.

You have something to add to that definition, Troll?

Connecticut legislators are expected to pass sweeping gun-control legislation on Wednesday, becoming the third state since the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown to do so.
But until recently, it wasn’t clear whether any legislation would even come to a vote. Connecticut has several strict gun laws in place — it was one of the few to pass a state assault weapons ban in 1993. But in recent years, the state’s pro-gun groups, using grassroots and legislative pressure, have killed two major pieces of gun-control legislation in a coordinated offensive. They strongly opposed any new laws after Newtown.
This time, though, something was different.
Local residents in support of gun-control began turning up at hearings that were once largely attended by gun advocates.

Useless legislation that will not prevent anything.

You go far enough you end up right. The same is true going in the other direction. Radicalism has the same face whatever name you want to call it.

Get a grip with the name calling-it doesn't sound very bright!

Right or left is meaningless. The political spectrum is a circle where Hitler the Nazi and Stain the Communist are in the same place.

The extremes in politics, on opposite sides of the circle, are individual freedom versus the power of the state over the individual, regardless of the label given to state power.

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.
The one thing for sure about the North Korean government is that the leaders are insane, so anything is possible.

The Supreme leader may soon be faced with his first real challenge, one that he cannot solve by campaigning or fund-raising.

Gee, sure hope not.
It was an astronaut that said passing over N Korea in darkness is eerie as the is not a light to be seen anywhere between S Korea and the China mainland.

North Korea has very limited electrical power.

If one googles North Korea and expands the little map that appears in the upper right of the page the first thing one would notice is that N Korea has very few roads. Looks like the fifth largest military in the world walks everywhere and those missiles are basically confined to the Pyongyang parade route.

It's my guess that one or two well placed US or S Korean missiles ends any conflict within hours sending the N Korean population into panic and chaos.

Meanwhile, N Korea has "never" tested the Musudan missile.

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.
Hmmm, genuine participants can only mean -to you-if they agree with Obama?

So turn around Obama is not a genuine participant because he refuses to work with Republicans.

Obama's "fix" is not what everyone regards as a "fix".

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.
"liberalism" with "burgeoning governmental largess"??? The damned empire CONQUERED everybody in the known world and took tribute and slaves from them...just as Dumbya and the other dwarves, they found it was somewhat costly to keep up. One percenters all the way with their bread and circuses. Rather like the current crop, but I'll bet even they didn't know how their descendents would be rewriting history just because they couldn't read it.

The economics of Obamacare are rapidly becoming unraveled, because all the original cost projections were absurd and politically motivated to allow passage.

However, despite the unfolding economic catastrophe, Obama will never back away, so the only possible outcome is a massive tax increase.

Interesting politics ahead on financing this turkey.

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.
Where have you been? You and Homer were obviously in the same place.
Yeah, he's alienated Grumpy Old Pricks since the day he was born black. A few might have tolerated him if he hadn't become president, but that's open to debate.

This is our New Health System, Thank You Obama…WALGREEN clinics to begin treating chronic illnesses... Doctors Shortages will lead to “A shortage of primary-care and other physicians could mean more-limited access to health care and longer wait times for patients," Your relationship between you and your doctor will now become Nurse/ practitioners relationship!
