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

And speaking of freedom...Paul McCartney wrote this song after 9/11 and has sung it many times since.

How quickly we forget about the importance of "freedom" - which even McCartney said is what we stand for. Why would we not want to die for others' freedom?
Is it freedom to drone kill innocent women and children?

I'd pour water up your nose in a heartbeat if I thought you might have information leading to more mass destruction. Especially if you were already responsible.

Do yourself a favor and wise up...and get some perspective while you're at it.

Are you just plain stupid or is just pretending 5000 Kurds - mostly women and children - weren't found lying dead in the streets from a Saddam WMD your preferred mechanism of denial?
You're here today simply to get a rise__and you have to rely on your standard fallback crap. You're one sorry ahole.

The Kurds died when? From chem weapons produced where? And given to Saddam by whom?

Oh and by the way babe__no one lies like Arab Muslim's lie__to them it's an art form and a badge of honor. It's the only thing those fks have learned how to do with skill during their entire existence.

I have no problem with terror plots being intercepted that might kill another 3000 - or more - people the next time.

Why on God's green earth would you???

It's the one thing Obama and the Democrats got right. Extending the Patriot Act.

Remember when we were united before Democrats took that away from us too for political gain?
Bush and Rove took care of that by launching "culture wars" as part of their campaign technique.

They carefully picked the issues by which to divide the electorate, such as gay marriage. Or responding to criticism of his Iraq War by saying those who did so were "enabling the enemy".

Realtime may answer, but I'd like a piece of you on this.
How do you know Hussein had WMDs which were secretly disposed of before Bush launched his war?
Did your GOP crystal ball tell you this? So many of you Repugnants have crystal balls upon which to divine the future.
Sorry, hon, but this is sheer speculation on your part.
The Iraqi gas attacks on the Kurds are irrelevant to the issue of their obligation to disarm which was several years later. No evidence has surfaced that Iraq was in possession of such weaponry at the time Bush made his case for war.
This is how I know. And most of the rest of the world who aren't in the throes of denial.

Why dont you give it a try? man up like mancow;
Keith Olbermann interviewed conservative radio host Erich
"Mancow" Muller tonigh about his experience being
waterboarded. Mancow said he agreed to be interviewed
because Olbermann is a "stand up guy" for agreeing to donate
$10,000 to a charity benefiting veterans (an offer previously
extended to Sean Hannity ) after Mancow was waterboarded.
Mancow reaffirmed that the practice was indeed torture and
said that his "psychological state" going into the experiment
was that he was "laughing at it. I was willing to prove, and
ready to prove, that this was a joke, and I was wrong. It was
horrific. It was instantaneous. And look, I felt the effects for
two days."
Mancow also revealed that his friend Sean Hannity "called me
and said 'it's still not torture.'"

The one thing? What about the pirates that were hijacking American ships. They don't do that anymore since Obama called for the Seals to do head shots. You forgotten already Laden is dead because Obama said to go in?
Hussein did not do anything more wrong to the Iraq's or the Kurds than the founders of America did.
Killed most of the original inhabitants and then brought in slaves. Who's side would America be on if that was occurring today in another country?

oh. i see you already are. the FOX propaganda machine works very quickly. but just try to not act like your viewpoint is your own. it's bad enough that you're a FOXbot, but no point in making it so easy for the rest of us to point out your lack of an original thought.
Please. Stop. In the same article...

In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was "confident" of achieving "our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda".

Although he acknowledged the need to pursue the "remnants" of the terrorist group and its affiliates, the overall message was clear – al-Qaeda was badly degraded, the tides of war were receding and the US was winning this fight that was no longer even officially a war.

...So, in fact, he DID lead America into a sense of false confidence.

Moscow. Russia and the United States agreed Saturday to step up cooperation in their fight against terror in the wake of news that two ethnic Chechens were suspected of organizing the deadly Boston Marathon bombings.

The Kremlin said Russian leader Vladimir Putin called US President Barack Obama to once again express his condolences and discuss ways the two sides can work more closely on security in the runup to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

it ended?

A bombing at a coffee shop in Baghdad has killed at least 27 people, police and medical officials say. The blast is the latest manifestation of a spike in violence ahead of Iraqi elections.

The blast, which was also said to have injured more than 50 people, occurred at 10 p.m. local time in a mostly Sunni Amriyah neighborhood of western Baghdad. Police said the bomber set off his explosive belt inside the packed café.

Officials said at least three children were among the dead. While there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, al Qaeda militants are among the suspects after stepping up their campaign of violence in an apparent bid to stoke ethnic tensions between the Sunni and Shiite communities.
