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

He said he was not an academic star in high school. Spent too much time plying basketball & having a good time.
If you actually read hos book, you would learn that he buckled down at Occidental. There he earned the grades to transfer to Columbia where e earned the credentials to get into Harvard Law.
It was after Columbia that Obama looked for a job of community organizer. Not just any job.
After Law School he had plenty of offers from big name law firms but went with a civil rights oriented firm instead.
I realize that the idea of helping people is way beyond the thinking of you right whiners depite your claims to be Christian.
Well, good for him. Who opened those doors for him is the question. Either the taxpayers in this evil capitalistic society or someone with a lot of money who had an agenda for him.

You know he won the Senate in Illinois twice unopposed, right? The first time because he went about disqualifying his opponent's petition signatures, and the second time because his opponent's "divorce scandal" somehow ended up being splattered all over the newspapers. He didn't even win unopposed by a big majority.

Same thing happened when he ran for the US Senate. His opponent suddenly ended up in a "scandal" and had to drop out.

Don't you find that a little bit odd? Because I sure do.

I have to agree, George Bush, was not a very good president. But you know what? He, George Bush, was far superior to the loser currently in office, president nobama;
- A greater percentage of American's had a job when he was president
- Far more American's paid Federal Income Tax when he was president
- Far fewer American's were on food stamps when he was president
- Average household income was higher when he was president
- Home values were higher when he was in office
- We did not have to face the disaster, nobamakare, that wonderful socialist plan that will insure the lazy by taxing the doers and providers

just some prespective on the Post Office, it would be doing fine if congress would just butt out of how it's run.
the Post Office gets no money from Congress, yet they are constantly dictating how it should be run.
Like any business, the Post office wanted to stop house delivery to rural areas that are sparsely populated. It costs to much for very little return. They wanted to make those country folks come to town to get their mail.
a good business decision, which congress prevented. so instead, you have urban areas subsidizing rural area
SOCIALISM SOCIALISM SOCIALISM
The Post Office also wanted to stop Saturday delivery. again a very costly process, with overtime. Most people and businesses (except retail) work 5 day weeks
but no Congress stepped in.
and you want to know which party is chiefly responsible??
Thanks for making my point!

"just some prespective (correction - "perspective") on the Post Office, it would be doing fine if congress would just butt out of how it's run."

Who the heck else do you think runs government agencies besides other government entities?

You Democrats are so clueless, it's embarrassing to say we live in the same country.

You are lying when you claim you never saw a graph.
A ,5% change would be about .3 percentage points which contradicts the numbers you just posted.

Typical of losers like you. A painful subject comes up and you change the subject. The subject was president nobama's cowardly behavior. The fact he said he would have the most transparent administration ever. Fox News was not the topic. Do you always run when you are proved to be a phoney?

Ok one more time. January 1990 66.9 November 2008 65.9 It went as high as 67.2 and as low as 65.7. The high was both before and after the low. Get it? Flat! December 2008 65.8, going down! It never went back above 65.8 April 2013 63.3, straight down!!! A steady drop.

I'm begging now, please stop shopping theere for the good of mankind. You must have some shred of human decency buried somewhere deep within your dying hulking shell.
Walmart provides jobs for low-skills employees and low prices for the poor.

Actually, low prices for everybody.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "As George W. Bush re-enters the public eye for the dedication of his presidential library, his job rating is the highest it's been since 2005,..." Most likely because Americans are a forgiving people ,especially when they know that a politician who behaved like an elephant's ass in office never, ever will run for public office again. Americans won't have to bear Bush W's fanatical extremism ever again.(If Obama can just let Bush/Cheney slink off to some deep dark hiding place in Texas then that's good enough for the rest of us. There is a bigger face of the GOP to hate than George W Bush now. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php...

When the cost of your "full coverage" explodes, your employer may decide to change the coverage.

HSA accounts will disappear under Obamacare, considered tax loopholes for the wealthy.

Actually, it was a snafu with my email address and having used it once before and not wanting to download what turned out to be necessary in order to complete the process.
After getting a new email address and downloading what was necessary, it was a cinch.
Now, about the other comments you made.
I love blacks who don't hate me or republicans for the sins of the past perpetrated by their own party and hate us just because they like free stuff.
The others I have reservations about. They are too easily duped.
Also, I love bargains. Actually, I LIVE for bargains. I NEVER go into furniture stores and pay three times as much for somethng I could get in a thrift or discount store that looks brand new and usually is much more interesting.
It's called being frugal and fiscally conservative.
I know, those words are alien to you. You're a liberal.
You like a thrift or discount store that looks brand new and is usually much more interesting? You bigoted old hypocrite, you're never going to find all the modifiers you misplace, right? You LIVE for bargains, but state that blacks hate you and your tribe because they (blacks) like free stuff...when was the last time you could see your cankles?

Make up your mind.
There are tens of millions of poor people, even more since Obama took control. Most are poor because they don't work, but still manage to survive easily. Even have cell phones.

Meanwhile, the middle class gets screwed to support these leeches.

I support any vice as long as it really pisses off the PC police.
But you go ahead and take that toke, belt down another shot and snort it up.
Just don't get behind the wheel of a car. But the PC have no problem with that. Smokers are a much bigger danger on the road.
I think it'd be great if everyone grabbed a cigarette whether they smoked or not and lit up anywhere and everywhere the PC police have forbidden it? A rebellion is in order.
Grab the biggest soft drink container you can find too.
I'm in agreement on this; what about smoking a joint?
They're on their way to pass the no text and drive,$30.00 ticket, what say you?
I say, stop giving the police more excuses to harrass the public.
