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

Typically stupid statement from a typical stupid person.
2012 was the warmest year on record, nationwide.
Stay stupid. We need morons like you to laugh at.
----------
"""2012 marks the warmest year on record for the contiguous U.S., with the year consisting of a record warm spring, the second warmest summer, the fourth warmest winter, and a warmer than average autumn," Jake Crouch, a climate scientist at the National Climatic Data Center at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), said in a press conference Tuesday.
According to a new NOAA report, the average temperature for the lower 48 states in 2012 was 55.3 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius), which is higher than the previous 1998 record by one degree Fahrenheit (0.6 degree Celsius).
A single degree difference might not seem like much, but it is an unusually large margin, scientists say. Annual temperature records typically differ by just tenths of a degree Fahrenheit.
"That is quite a bit for a whole year averaged over the whole country," said Anthony Barnston, chief forecaster at Columbia University's International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), who was not involved in the study.
2012: An Odd Year
To put that difference in perspective, said NOAA's Crouch, consider that the entire range of temperature increase between the coldest year on record, which occurred in 1917, and the previous hottest year in 1998 was just 4.2 degrees Fahrenheit (2.3 degrees Celsius).
"2012 is now more than one degree above the top of that. So we're talking about well above the pack in terms of all the years we have data for the U.S.," he added.
2012 was also the 15th driest year on record for the nation: The average precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was 26.57 inches (67.5 centimeters), 2.57 inches (6.5 centimeters) below average.""
----------
Most Americans agree that our weather patterns, drought, etc., are caused by climate change, just as all leading scientists say.
Only the brain dead Repugnants believe otherwise, and they're controlled by Corporate interests.
Well there you go, a**hole. As I said, the "globe" isn't warming and areas that appear to be enjoying "the warmest year on record (that's a joke by itself)" are caused by regional cyclic fluctuations, not the concerted emanations of disingenuous doom-sayers like you.

Not sure dem. You were the one claiming his hillbilly parents gave it to him, but that's not what CNN or ABC reported. You loons will now say a 22 is an assault rifle, but Diane Fienstein will carry a gun.
Maybe you should check Media Matters!
Baawwwaahhh!!!!
So, you claim that his parents didn't give it to him. Where'd he get it then? Every source reported that it was a gift; if it wasn't a gift from the parents? Who gave it to him? Santa or the Easter Bunny? or the Tooth Fairy?

You always had a penchant for science as long as it didn't disagree with your rightwing slanted political views. You had a mild flirtation with voting for Perot but eventually settled on Dole. You frequent Jerry's Bar and Grille, love the outdooors and your John Deere Tractor which you use to mow your lawn as often as you can. Parents names are Howard and Estelle.

He's been elected President twice. Proving that only nitwits care about the 'records'. I'm happy he can piss you off so easily!!
Other than hateful racists like you and Carol, nobody cares. If they did, he wouldn't have been elected nor re-elected.
Stay stupid. It suits you well.
That's the biggest puzzle. How he got elected twice.

But we should celebrate because unemployment dropped a notch from 7.6% to 7.5%.

It's sort of like waiting on pins and needles from month to month to find out if you're going to live after waiting 4-1/2 years already.

But, as you know, Obamacare came first and it now looms like a dark ominous cloud. Are you ready? Because 42% of Americans have no clue it's even the law of the land.

I think I'll wait to celebrate until after October 1 - and maybe until the end of the year after the reality sets in.

Hope I'm wrong and it's a big smash for both employers and employees...and tax payers too, of course.

Wouldn't all retailers like to have the opportunity to offer universal single payer healthcare at no cost to them to all of their employees?
Wouldn't all retailers like to be able to pocket that sales tax?

Not true, for a variety of reasons, mostly cost of production, commonly called lifting costs.
Williston Basin or not, the estimates are far too rosy. Though we'll produce more oil, we'll still need about 40% imported oil.
As far as shale natural gas, have you ever seen the charts showing the rate of decline??
They can't drill and frack fast enoough to keep up with the rate of decline of each well. This is true for Marcellus, Barnett, Eagle Ford, etc.
A lot of it is 'Happy Talk'.
I stand by that estimate. We'll see.
You didn't convince me__at least not on the ten years.

That means that the base F 150 pickups being sold today will cost at least $260 to top off by 2023.

Maybe 18-20 years__not 10 imo.

The truth will come out many years from now. Probably after most of us here are dead and gone. Hopefully, maybe not.

The thing about a president's legacy, it usually doesn't catch up with them and stick until enough time has passed.

However, my prediction is that GW Bush's legacy will far outshine that of Barack Obama's 20 years from now. It almost does already.

Like Carter, Obama can run from his future legacy, but he can't hide. The now hidden truths will eventually see the light of day.

Benghazi (I): Does Fox News have a scoop with its cloaked Special Operator?
Not from what I am hearing ‘round the barnyard. Here's an example, from retired Special Forces Col. David Maxwell, on the record and everything, about Fox's ‘scoop' saying SF could have responded to Benghazi in time:
Whistle blower my a**. If this guy is a real special operator (and I have my doubts) I wonder if he realizes what an embarrassment he is to the community. What he offers is pure speculation and not based on any real facts as I have heard and appears to be coming from his fourth point of contact. He comes across as just another conspiracy theorist who is taking Fox News for a ride.
http://ricks.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2013/05/...
Benghazi Hearings to start Wednesday, including questions[???] about how the Republican FOX Ministry of Propaganda (wanna be MSM media) invented coverage of the event.
Fox is dedicating a good ten minutes or longer per day per daytime comment on the Benghazi CIA operation.

Scooter Libbey got prison time (commuted) and was disbarred for outing an agent__in the case of Benghazi we find American elected and news persons outing an entire CIA operation that was likely illegal from the get go, whenever the fk that was.

BushCo began normalizing diplomatic relations with Libya in 2004-2005 how long after that the CIA moved in is anyone's guess. And hearings or no we'll never learn what really happened or why.

FOX believes that it's viewers are nitwits.

George Bush's legacy
The frat boy ships out
Few people will mourn the departure of the 43rd president

HE LEAVES the White House as one of the least popular and most divisive presidents in American history. At home, his approval rating has been stuck in the 20s for months; abroad, George Bush has presided over the most catastrophic collapse in America's reputation since the second world war. The American economy is in deep recession, brought on by a crisis that forced Mr Bush to preside over huge and unpopular bail-outs.

America is embroiled in two wars, one of which Mr Bush launched against the tide of world opinion. The Bush family name, once among the most illustrious in American political life, is now so tainted that Jeb, George's younger brother, recently decided not to run for the Senate from Florida. A Bush relative describes family gatherings as “funeral wakes”.

Fake study says Fox News viewers have low IQs

A study that claimed Fox News viewers were significantly less intelligent than average Americans is a hoax, Michael Giltz writes. The “study” was ordered up by a group of conservatives who hope to move the Republican party in a more moderate direction, lead hoaxer “P. Nichols” told Giltz.

Making people embarrassed to say they watched FOX News (or better yet not watch FOX News at all) might help that goal. So the 5000 people who took part in the study were chosen by Nichols and non-scientists, essentially selected to guarantee the results they were looking for.
