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

Here's a working link to '10 reasons that I'm glad that I voted to reelect President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in 2012.

Your administration, in conjunction with the Democrat-led Congress and the Federal Reserve, acted quickly to shore up a financial system and job market in free fall, held us back from a entering a depression and, as the CBO director put it in congressional testimony back in 2010, the ...aggressive action by the Federal Reserve and the fiscal stimulus package helped moderate the severity of the recession and shorten its duration.

You and congressional Democrats put your own political careers at risk to produce the most meaningful health care reform this country has seen in 45 years in an effort to expand access to care for nearly 30 million uninsured Americans. While some may criticize you for abandoning the public option, these individuals forget the ardent opposition and misinformation campaign waged against it, culminating in Senator Joe Lieberman's last minute reversal, deciding to vote against any reform with such a measure.
Against significant opposition you decided to bailout the American auto industry which resulted in an undeniable success, so much so that your presidential challenger is now attempting to credit himself with the idea. But many, even some fellow liberals, claim you chose big business over struggling Americans. These views fail to take in the bigger picture. Your critics do not consider the average Americans employed by the industry itself, the parts manufacturers, the shippers who transport those parts, the auto dealerships or the communities where those very workers and businesses reside..

You and the Democratic-led Congress reinstated many of the very regulations whose repeal led to the Great Recession. These new regulations include provisions for a controlled "winding down" of failing financial institutions eliminating the need for taxpayer bailouts in the future, something your Republican counterparts have tried to reverse.

You and congressional Democrats created the Consumer Financial and Protection Bureau (CFPB) which, as you know, is tasked with ensuring contractual language and documents from banks, credit card companies, mortgage brokers, payday lenders, student loan providers and other financial institutions are understandable to average consumers. It seeks to educate consumers so people can make financial decisions based on sound comparison and assessment of all available information.

You lobbied for New Deal style work projects in an effort to return Americans' to work. You pushed for infrastructure investment and maintenance, you pressed Congress for national passenger railway funding which many GOP-led states refused to take. You pushed for broadband internet expansion into rural areas and continued to advance your transportation legislation through Congress. Yet at every turn these efforts were hampered by a GOP intent on holding firm to an agenda of austerity.

Your first act as President was to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, a bill designed to break down wage discrimination barriers for women.

You made reinvestments in education and career transition training, advanced policy to make college more affordable and to assist students with student loans.

You eliminated Don't Ask, Don't Tell and have stood up for LGTB rights and just yesterday officially backed the rights of same-sex couples to marry.

Under your leadership we have seen a marked improvement in the economy. Of the 8.7 million jobs lost since September 2008 including the 4.3 million lost under your administration virtually all those lost since your time in office have been regained.

I'd just like for all of us to be united again. Without another 9/11.

If Clinton had been president on 9/11, he, too, would have taken down Saddam. He had already bombed Iraq once.

Democrats wouldn't have turned against him either.

Marking an abrupt shift in tone from his epic March filibuster, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said late Monday that he would be fine with a drone killing a run-of-the-mill armed robber.

"Here's the distinction: I have never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an act of crime going on," Paul said on Fox Business Network. "If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash, I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him. But it's different if they want to come fly over your hot tub or your yard just because they want to do surveillance on everyone, and they want to watch your activities."

<quoted text> What I would do is not important. What President Obama does he. He got up there on TV and puffed out his chest and said 'If Syria uses chemical weapons against the rebels my administration will consider that crossing a red line!' Now he is trying to walk that back. What an empty suit for a president we have.
Unlike President Bush, President Obama wants to be sure that these weapons were actually used by Syria before risking the lives of our soldiers.

I realize you right whiners like running off to war & killing 4000 soldiers based on rumors & untruths.

Yeah, Realtime, all those insurgents who kept us in Iraq longer than intended were Saddam's paper tigers.
Saddam ran only because he knew it was all over but the cryin'.
He thumbed his nose up at the entire world for quite some time while he was putting his own people in mass graves. Is that what paper tigers do?
There were no insurgents in Iraq when we invaded you stupid fk. The insurgents didn't start arriving until after Saddam and his crew were history. Did you know that Saudi and other wannabe terrorists were venturing over on weekends into the surge area, Anbar Province, just for the thrill? Chuck Hagel was right__the surge was a fkn joke consisting mostly of CIA operatives handing out suitcases full of cash.

Do your homework dummy.

Make-work projects never work.

Rail passenger transportation is a disaster. The fares don't come close to the costs. Amtrak even loses money selling food.

Puppet Obama To Ban Importation of Ammo, Magazines and Gun Accessories Without Congressional Approval

Let me know when you have something more concrete to whine about.
"real dumb"
If president nobama has created millions of jobs why are fewer American's working? Why did 1/2 million American's leave the work force last month? Why are millions more American's getting food stamps? Why did the economy shrink in the 1st. quarter of this year?
