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

Meet Democrats’ Newest Republican Crush: Ted Cruz?!?!
Their distaste for his antics and his radical ideology is undoubtedly genuine. But Democrats are also thrilled that someone with those — should we call them qualities?— has emerged after the rout in 2012 as a Republican powerbroker in his own right, in a party whose leadership is too weak and timid to control him. And, the greater his stature in the party, the more harm they believe he’ll do to the GOP nationwide, whether or not he runs for president in 2016.

Ted Cruz scares Democrats because he will fight back against the smears, unlike McCain or Romney.

The talk of "massive gun battles" was grossly exaggerated, mostly cop fire without effect. The Muslim Brotherhood had only one handgun and ambushed the cop that they killed. The first Muslim was killed by his brother by running over his head while escaping. The second Muslim was unarmed when flushed from the boat by a massive police assault. Police were lucky that these guys were not good for much except planting IEDs.
Tragic events.

Fox News Airs Live Flop Of Their Benghazi Wannabe Scandal – Stephen Colbert Gets Mad
The events of September 12, 2013, in Benghazi, Libya, were unambiguously tragic. However, while most Americans would hold the band of terrorists at the scene responsible for the attacks on our diplomatic facility and CIA post, Fox News and Republicans in congress have been fiercely battling to find any excuse to blame President Obama and/or Hillary Clinton.
With the circus sideshow offered today by GOP Representative Darrell Issa’s House committee, the effort to politicize the affair hit a new low. Although much was promised prior to the hearing, there was nothing illuminating that came from it. This was even after Fox pundits repeatedly vowed that the information they knew was going to be unveiled would be shocking and devastating to the administration. Their previews were so emphatic that Stephen Colbert made a point of launching a “Benghazi – Something That Will Make You Mad Clock.”
It’s fair to say that Colbert is furious today. And so are some of the right-wing media fluffers who are appalled that these unproductive hearings were ignored by much of the television press. NewsBusters went to the trouble of compiling the aggregate minutes that each of the cable news networks allotted to the hearings. To no one’s surprise, Fox dominated their competition. But that’s because the Benghazi Show was a Fox News Presentation from get-go. The other networks might have devoted more airtime to the story if there were anything actually newsworthy emanating from it.
What NewsBusters didn’t bother to report to their deluded audience was that all the extra time that Fox spent airing the live hearings was focused largely on Republican members of the committee. Media Matters did their own compilation and discovered that 71% of the 65 minutes they monitored featured GOP members making statements and questioning the witnesses. And that was even after anchor Megyn Kelly announced that their coverage had been unfairly weighted toward Democrats. That, of course, was not true, yet Kelly kept her promise to feature even more Republicans.
Now that the hearings have concluded with no smoking gun – not even a gently glowing ember – we can expect Fox and the GOP to set aside these spurious allegations and pursue some other fabricated scandal. And if you believe that, you haven’t been watching Fox the past 17 years.

Fox News is starting to remind me of Karl Rove on election night refusing to concede Ohio, even after everyone had declared him the winner.

Nobody has ever answered how the cost of covering pre-existing conditions will be handled.

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%.
So , what you are arguing is that you have every right to belong to the same fruitcake, crazy Sharia-panic caucus as Andrew C McCarthy III and voice your fears of boogeymen Jihadists hiding under everyone's bed in America? I agree. You are free to pursue your happiness anyway you want, even if it is entertaining crack-pot opinions and conspiracy-mongering. "Believe it or not, the United States was created entirely separate from any religion. The right to pursue happiness - as long as it does not impinge upon others - is the foundation of our state." -Gore Vidal.

Bachmann could face lawsuit for ‘propagating complete and utter lies’
A religious freedom advocate told U.S. News he is considering suing Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) over allegedly slanderous comments she made in a fundraising pitch.
“We are caucusing with our legal counsel to consider the most expeditious course of action we can take in a federal court to stop these bald-faced lies,” Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) said.“About 96 percent of our members [at MRFF] are Protestant or Roman Catholic… of our unpaid volunteers, at least well over 80 percent are Christian… I say [to Bachmann]: Tell it to the judge.”

It has been reported that you could face a lawsuit for the same type of thing.

So Mr. Walton turned to a young lawyer who just happened to be married to the governor of Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is based: Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Mrs. Clinton’s six-year tenure as a director of Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest company, remains a little known chapter in her liberal communist career.

You need someone more towards the center and who will work with Democrats when necessary like Christie otherwise you're fcked as far as winning the presidency. The more likely option is the South secedes again and then you'll have a rightwing president.

Lincoln over seven years after 9/11 under George W. Bush, how many terrorists reached their target in the United States…? Zero!
All of those 5 terrorists' attacks also led to convictions and long prison terms or death for the perps. How many of the terrorist masterminds of 9/11 where 3,000 innocent Americans died were pursued, convicted , and imprisoned or killed by George W Bush ? ZERO.

Dave apparently thinks that cutting taxes is stealing money from folks like him who don't pay taxes.
Envy is ugly.
Cutting taxes in general without cutting spending takes money from all of us as it adds to the deficit.

We all share the national debt.

When you give tax cuts weighted to the wealthy without corresponding spending cuts, the poor & Middle Class end up taking the hit for the wealthy's tax breaks.

When you give a particular company or a particular industry a tax break without a spending cut or corresponding revenue increase elsewhere, people pay for it as the deficits increase.
