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

"This isn't the first time McCarthy has used the credibility he's earned as a former prosecutor to lend legitimacy to nutty accusations. In September of 2009, McCarthy alleged that "terrorist sympathizers" had "assumed positions throughout the Obama administration." By "terrorist sympathizers," McCarthy meant Obama administration lawyers who had represented Gitmo detainees or challenged Bush-era war on terror policies the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional. Many of these lawyers went on to defend policies like targeted killing and indefinite detention, but to McCarthy, they were all foot soldiers in a "Grand Jihad,"—the title of a book in which he argues that the Muslim Brotherhood and the American left have teamed up to destroy America. "What do health care reform and 'the Grand Jihad' have in common?" National Review's Kathryn Jean-Lopez asked McCarthy in a 2010 interview. "They both enjoy support of Islam and the left," McCarthy replied. "In this context, by 'Islam,' I mean the Islamist movement." Great Islamists in history: Hassan al-Banna, Sayyid Qutb, and Ted Kennedy." Andrew McCarthy's Defense of McCarthyism www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/08/andrew-mccar... .. McCarthy still thinks former Weather Underground member William Ayers wrote Obama's autobiography.(Here's a link to a C-Span video of the event.) http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/FmrFe Sorry, Aunt Bettie Lou, Andrew McCarthy is hardly a credible source.
Andrew C. McCarthy III is a former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He is most notable for leading the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others and also contributed to the prosecutions of terrorists who bombed US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

Andrew McCarthy thought the Democratic Presidential candidate, Barack Obama, was not serious about protecting US national security against threats from radical Islam and elsewhere and that Obama had a number of troubling ties and associations with leftist radicals.

I agree. 110%.

Mr. McCarthy said, "I believe that the issue of Obama's personal radicalism, including his collaboration with radical, America-hating Leftists, should have been disqualifying."

I agree. 110%.

Mr. McCarthy noted his dissension with the administration in their policies regarding terrorists by saying, "A war is a war. A war is not a crime, and you don’t bring your enemies to a courthouse."

I agree. 110%.

McCarthy recently spoke out against the War in Afghanistan saying the War benefits the Afghans while hurting American interests and the United States should be concerned solely with its interests.

I partially agree. 85%. Only because, historically, it is considered an unwinnable war.

McCarthy also said the goals of the original proponents of Medicare was to get a foot in the door for full out socialized medicine under a single payer system.

I agree. 110%.

Oh, and I also agree with what McCarthy said that you posted. "Muslim Brotherhood and the American left have teamed up to destroy America."

110%.

The original mission was to topple Saddam's regime. That was the mission successfully accomplished.

No one anticipated the onslaught of insurgents and al Qaeda joining the fight and calling Iraq the "frontlines".

They can be criticized, perhaps, for not anticipating that as a possibility, but war doesn't come with a crystal ball.

We had no choice at that point but to fight. Unfortunately, it took a long time to regroup before the surge finally ended it.

Obamacare will be this president's undoing when it hits the fan this October and into the first of next year if the Benghazi coverup doesn't unravel him first.

This president does not have a winning record any way you look at it. Things are actually worse any way you look at it.

He might be able to hide behind the propagandists and stay under the radar about Benghazi but he can't hide from the "train wreck" that's coming.
Not with preexisting conditions now covered by Obamacare.
Benghazi show is getting old and obviously a House Republican trip

Okay, maybe I don't agree the Muslim Brotherhood and the American left have teamed up to destroy America. It's more like I agree 110% about the Muslim Brotherhood and 110% about the left - not so much about teaming up.

The preexisting conditions is the only part everyone agrees with.

I think you underestimate the American people still wanting answers and accountability.

Even Democrats said more hearings are necessary after today to get to the bottom of this.

The mission, which was to end Iraqi military resistance, had been accomplished. The only mistake Bush made was not to declare victory at that point and to leave Iraq.

Not the federal government. States are still free to tax businesses as they choose. Many states have tax-deferred economic development zones.

By the way, you are totally clueless about oil development in Alberta.

Your only tax money is that which the government takes from you.

Money that the government chooses not to take from others is not yours.

You have no right to the assets of others.

Pre-existing conditions are already covered if one stays with the same insurer.

Exploding costs and deteriorating service will sink Obamacare.

Well, I take that back. It most definitely IS about the attack on that embassy and four dead Americans. And why we still have no answers as to why it happened and who is responsible for it happening after repeated requests for help were denied.
The president continuing to lie about was just salt being rubbed into an open wound.
The coverup was just as aggregious as the attack.
