Barack Obama, our next President

You've been brainwashed by the propagandist machine.

Only you can help yourself. Start by doing some serious researching with an open mind.

Unless it's too late. In that case, I just feel sorry for you.

Clinton would have taken down Saddam if he had been in the White House on 9/11.

No president would have taken the risk of his continuing to deceive the world.

The timeline for the withdrawal of troops in Iraq was decided upon before Bush left office.

Air Force Capt. Brandon Cyr died in plane crash in Afghanistan[Rest In Peace]
By Martin Weil,
Capt. Brandon L. Cyr, 28, an Air Force pilot who had hundreds of hours of combat flying experience, and listed Woodbridge as his home town, was killed Saturday in a plane crash in Afghanistan, the Pentagon said.
People who knew him recalled his sense of humor, his thoughtfulness and his dedication to a challenging job.
He was assigned to an air-refueling squadron based at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, where he was a pilot instructor for the KC-135 refueling tanker. He had also qualified as an instructor for the MC-12, the aircraft involved in the fatal crash. He had been in Afghanistan for three months when the crash occurred.

he is leading the nation on two terms, and he was a senator who successfully found his way in to the white house, despite people in other states didn't even know who he was, that's brilliant, that's leadership.

BOSTON (AP)-- In photos of her as a younger woman, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva wears a low-cut blouse and has her hair teased like a 1980s rock star. After she arrived in the U.S. from Russia in 2002, she went to beauty school and did facials at a suburban day spa.

But in recent years, people noticed a change. She began wearing a hijab and cited conspiracy theories about 9/11 being a plot against Muslims.

Now known as the angry and grieving mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, Tsarnaeva is drawing increased attention after federal officials say Russian authorities intercepted her phone calls, including one in which she vaguely discussed jihad with her elder son. In another, she was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, U.S. officials said.

Tsarnaeva insists there is no mystery. She's no terrorist, just someone who found a deeper spirituality. She insists her sons - Tamerlan, who was killed in a gunfight with police, and Dzhokhar, who was wounded and captured - are innocent.

"It's all lies and hypocrisy," she told The Associated Press in Dagestan. "I'm sick and tired of all this nonsense that they make up about me and my children. People know me as a regular person, and I've never been mixed up in any criminal intentions, especially any linked to terrorism."

Amid the scrutiny, Tsarnaeva and her ex-husband, Anzor Tsarnaev, say they have put off the idea of any trip to the U.S. to reclaim their elder son's body or try to visit Dzhokhar in jail. Tsarnaev told the AP on Sunday he was too ill to travel to the U.S. Tsarnaeva faces a 2012 shoplifting charge in a Boston suburb, though it was unclear whether that was a deterrent.

George W. Bush is smarter than you ...

One of my students asked “How involved was President Bush with what was going on?” I smiled and responded,“What you really mean is,‘Was President Bush smart enough to understand what was going on,’ right?”

The class went dead silent. Everyone knew that this was the true meaning of the question. Kudos to that student for asking the hard question and for framing it so politely. I had stripped away that decorum and exposed the raw nerve.

I looked hard at the 60 MBA students and said “President Bush is smarter than almost every one of you.”

More silence.

I could tell they were waiting for me to break the tension, laugh, and admit I was joking.

I did not. A few shifted in their seats, then I launched into a longer answer. While it was a while ago, here is an amalgam of that answer and others I have given in similar contexts.
...
He was making choices not just on taxes and spending and trade and energy and climate and health care and agriculture and Social Security and Medicare, but also on education and immigration, on crime and justice issues, on environmental policy and social policy and politics. Being able to handle such substantive breadth and depth, on such huge decisions, in parallel, requires not just enormous strength of character but tremendous intellectual power. President Bush has both.

<quoted text> Has nothing to do with republican or democrat bro! The powers that be have no need to label you, if you choose to label yourselves! It has to do with personal responsibility & equality. True equality, not the guise of affirmative action. This is why this country has come to a standstill. One of the cornerstones in the construction of this country remains to be treated as step children. That & people think capitalism is a heaven sent, when in fact it keeps things the way they are. The rich gets richer & the poor remains poor, because the money is continuously funneled into the top 1%. If the trickle down economic theory really works, if would've taking affect already after over 50yrs of this experiment. It's not the fact that the people making all the money didn't earn it. It's the fact that people are making money just to bank, already filthy rich turned glutinous hoarders. Meanwhile, the poor still starve literally, emotionally, mentally. This country will never reach the heights of it's true destiny bro if we continue to part ourselves through race, religion, & politics & wealth status. We should honestly focus on what truly betters the nation, money not included. Prosperity is generated through honesty! We have to stop turning blind eyes to glaring necessities & address Americas needs, not personal needs. This is what 99% of people vote for, what benefits themselves, not what benefits America because what benefits America, benefits themselves indirectly!
Stop sounding like Karl Marx, there is no workable alternative to capitalism, it's produced the most successful, wealthy society for hundreds of millions ever, even the non producers, if you have an alternative , I'd love to hear about it.

But wouldn't any intelligent, informed, educated person expect the worst recession since WWII to have the worst recovery since WWII. Ad before you run screaming through the streets having your typical " OMG OMG OMG" fit, I am saying that recovery time usually matches the severity of the recession.
The worst recession should have the most difficult recovery.
You and Oblamer own it:

<quoted text>
At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.

Obama is a man with limited leadership abilities who was carefully selected. He talked good, looked good and the propagandists adored him and fell short of worshipping him. He is a presidential fluke.

If Obama was white, he'd still be voting present in the Senate and Hillary would have been the first woman president.

He sought out Marxists in college. He doesn't get Americans or the American spirit. He was in over his head on the first day of his first term and will be in over his head on the last day of his last term.

He fooled a lot of people, many of whom realize it now. Too bad you don't.
