Barack Obama, our next President

Obama's get the vote out campaign was three years in the making.
It's one of the advantages of being an incumbent but, in this president's case, pure luck had a lot to do with it.
Romney did a great job campaigning for the re election of the President. Thanks Mitt.
His son said his father didn't want to be President. He was just messing with you.
That 47% video, nailed it. Thank you to Jimmy Carters grandson! and the waiter who filmed it. It was absolute perfection.

There is nothing to figure out. there are a lot of stupid people in this country that will vote against their best interests. A lot of people, both times, voted for him because he is black. They didn't listen to a word he said. They just wanted to vote for the black man. don't expect that to happen again. The novelty has worn off.

The Conservative Paranoid Mind

There’s a common thread linking conservatives’ positions on gun control, immigration, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: the constant need to stoke fear.

Liberals and civil libertarians shouldn’t yet be saying that there’s utterly no way that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be declared an “enemy combatant.” The post-9/11 law, whatever one’s opinion of it, does say that an American citizen affiliated with al Qaeda, the Taliban,“or associated forces” engaged in hostility with the United States can be declared an enemy combatant. It doesn’t seem like he’s that, but who knows, he may shock everyone when he comes to by saying that he and his brother were precisely that.

But it isn’t liberals who are jumping the gun here. As usual, conservatives are rushing to judgment, shredding the Constitution, using the bombing as an pretext for derailing immigration reform, and generally seeking any excuse to reimpose their paranoid and authoritarian worldview, which needs fear like a vampire needs blood, on the rest of us.

....The common thread through all of this is the conservative need to instill and maintain a level of fear in the populace. They need to make gun owners fear that Dianne Feinstein and her SWAT team are going to come knocking on their doors, or, less amusingly, that they have to be armed to the teeth for that inevitable day when the government declares a police state. They need to whip up fear of immigrants, because unless we do, it’s going to be nothing but terrorists coming through those portals, and for good measure, because, as Ann Coulter and others have recently said, the proposed law would create millions of voting Democrats (gee, I wonder why!).

And with regard to terrorism, they need people to live in fear of the next attack, because fear makes people think about death, and thinking about death makes people more likely to endorse tough-guy, law-and-order, Constitution-shredding actions undertaken on their behalf. This is how we lived under Bush and Cheney for years. This fear is basically what enabled the Iraq War to take place. Public opinion didn’t support that war at first. But once they got the public afraid with all that false talk of mushroom clouds, the needle zoomed past 50 percent, and it was bombs away.

Conservatism, I fear (so to speak), can never be cleansed of this need to instill fear. Whether it’s of black people or of street thugs or of immigrants or of terrorists or of jackbooted government agents, it’s how the conservative mind works. I don’t even think it’s always cynical and manipulative; conservatives often do see enemies under every bed. But that doesn’t mean they’re there, and it most definitely doesn’t mean the rest of us ought to make law and policy based on their nightmares.

Obama to charge Internet taxes on all of us after promising would never raise taxes on middle class.

Liberals are happy to pay more higher and higher taxes until they destroy the internet.

Liberals will also allow the government to keep track of everything we but online under the excuse of tax liability tracking.

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites!

Racist. You're insane if you think anyone votes because of race. That's so absolutely insane. We voted because of the message of the Democratic Party, we will vote in huge numbers again, for Hillary, then you can say we voted just because she's a woman.
You rightwingers can't face the reality that your party has no message for the American people.

And spare me the comeback that you're not a racist or a rightwinger.

freedom? conservatives?

If conservatism is the ideology of freedom, how come theyre the ones who are always trying to control other peoples sexuality? Why are conservatives always telling us whom we can sleep with and what we can do in bed, even including whether we can use birth control?

If conservatism is the ideology of freedom, how come theyre the ones who are always trying to make sure that the state takes control of womens bodies, denying them reproductive choice and freedom?

If conservatism is the ideology of freedom, how come theyre the ones who are always trying to tell us who we can marry? How come they believe that the state which they always seem to hate, except when it is at war should be able to make that most personal decision for us?

why is it you folks are in denial of the fact that your own policies sunk your ship? plus that fact that you've had no one that qualifies as a national leader show up on the stage since Bush handed Obama the WH in 2008.

Republican-controlled legislatures in several states have passed or introduced bills that would prohibit state-run health insurance exchanges from covering abortion in any of their plans. But Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims (D) attempted to halt such a bill in his state on Tuesday with a scathing speech about freedom and personal responsibility.

"This legislation is about advancing an ideology of oppression and suppression, even if such a plan means ignoring the oath of office that each of us swore," Sims told his colleagues during a floor debate in the House of Representatives. "As a reminder, Mr. Speaker, I do believe this has been forgotten entirely by many of my colleagues today: Each of us put our hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. We did not place our hands on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/23/bria...

"I'm not sure how I find myself in this room of all rooms as one of the men who respects women the most, but as is so often the case, I see that respect for the person and personal responsibility is clearly more of a slogan than a reality. For these reasons, as well as those given by my colleagues, I ask that members vote no on House Bill 881 and reaffirm the constitution, the freedom of marketplace, and freedom from an oppressive legislature."

Another lie that the right wing likes to trot out.
One of the principal myths surrounding medical malpractice is its effect on overall health care costs. Medical malpractice is actually a tiny percentage of health care costs, in part because medical malpractice claims are far less frequent than many people believe.
In 2004, the CBO calculated malpractice costs amounted to less than 2 percent of overall health care spending. Thus, even a reduction of 25 percent to 30 percent in malpractice costs would lower health care costs by only about 0.4 percent to 0.5 percent, and the likely effect on health insurance premiums would be comparably small. i
Five years later, the CBO revisited the issue of medical negligence costs. This time, they attempted to account for the indirect costs of medical negligence, mainly the idea that doctors order extra tests to avoid liability. Again, the CBO found that tort reform would only save 0.5 percent of all health care costs.
Other authorities have also found that the direct costs associated with medical negligence are a tiny fraction of health care costs. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the total amount of money spent defending claims and compensating victims of medical negligence in 2010 was $5.8 billion, or just 0.3 percent of the $2.6 trillion spent on health care in the U.S. that same year.

What you and everyone else never figures in is the cost of all the tests and procedures that doctors feel necessary to keep from getting sued,

And for each of those there are lots that would never vote for a black man.

After the Republicans took the White House in Jan of 2001 with a surplus & left with doubling the debt, the worst recession in 80 years and two quagmire wars, you say the stiupid peoplewere the ones not voting Republican?

Really?

You can make up all the false reasons you want. The Republicans lost the White House in 2000 because the Republicans sucked. Period.

The office of president has swung back and forth since day one, nut hag.

As a matter of fact, between the time your Bozo Obama took office and since when the Democrats sent 50,000+ of our kids to die in Vietnam for a war that had no impact on our national security, where the Democrats lied about the Gulf of Tonkin event:

Republicans won eight of the last eleven elections.

As far as Congress goes, prior to when the Democrats started morphing into radical Socialists, Democrats held Congress basically from WWII up until 1992, so you had your strong period there which is now gone. Hence you lie and so does your corrupt media since you have to in order to win now.

Sunk ship?

i find it very revealing that you can't talk about the Republican follies of the last 12 years. and that you can't talk about the future of the Republican party.

the last 12 years sunk the ship, and there is no future for the regressive Party that anyone who doesn't watch FOX(most of us) can see.
