Barack Obama, our next President

Obama whipped out an Executive Order to shut down Fast and Furious.

As soon as he is charged with knowing about the IRS, he may be facing a very real possibility of impeachment.

you wish. doesn't matter anymore what happened with Benghazi. credibility cuts both ways. if you have none you sure as hell can't demand it from anyone else.
No idea what you are talking about.

Was Mitt Romney President when we f*cked up in Benghazi?

Obama is a crippled President, which bodes well for the survival of America.

Unless our enemies smell the weakness.

the new scandal.
Republicans Altered Benghazi Emails, CBS News Report Claims
One day after The White House released 100 pages of Benghazi emails, a report has surfaced alleging that Republicans released a set with altered text.
CBS News reported Thursday that leaked versions sent out by the GOP last Friday had visible differences than Wednesday's official batch. Two correspondences that were singled out in the report came from National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes and State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
The GOP version of Rhodes' comment, according to CBS News: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."
The White House email: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."
The GOP version of Nuland's comment, according to CBS News: The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda's presence and activities of al-Qaeda."
The White House email: "The penultimate point could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings."
The news parallels a Tuesday CNN report which initially introduced the contradiction between what was revealed in a White House Benghazi email version, versus what was reported in media outlets. On Monday, Mother Jones noted that the Republicans' interim report included the correct version of the emails, signaling that more malice and less incompetence may have been at play with the alleged alterations.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/16/repu...
will anyone be surprised?
CBS is just p.o.'ed ABC got the jump on them covering the real story about the WH and State Department changing the CIA report to exclude all references to a terrorist attack.

This story has no legs. Lame, in other words.

Well, that's what faith is. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
You aren't forcing you to believe anything you don't want to believe.
Also, if you were talking about those two overly zealus pro-life republicans the media brought out of obscurity during the last election as representing all republicans who are pro-life, that's a pretty big stretch.
I don't recall any republican bringing up the issue of abortion during the entire election.
Linking republicans who are pro-life with "fundamentalist Christians" is also a pretty big stretch.
I don't even recall any "fundamentalist Christians" bringing up the issue of abortion.
The liberals ALWAYS bring up the issue of abortion during elections. It's a predictable tactic. Even if you aren't pro-life, you shouldn't expect Republicans who are to remain completely silent. No Republican candidate has made it a focal part of their platform.
The abortion issue is an albatross that costs Republicans elections.

Just like gun control for Democrats, but even worse.

The Republican Party platform should ignore the issue.

Yup, Oblamers fault, killing too many muslims illegally:
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was found hiding in a boat days after the blasts, left a handwritten message describing the attack as retribution for U.S. wars in Muslim countries, CBS News reported on Thursday.
The CBS News report, citing anonymous sources, said that Tsarnaev used a pen to write the message on an interior wall of the boat, where police found him bleeding from gunshot wounds four days after the April 15 bombing.
The note summed up with the idea that "when you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," CBS News reported.
CBS News did not make clear how its sources knew the information and Reuters was not immediately able to confirm the report.
Why has it taken this long for that info to come out?

The Magic Negro simply can't bring himself to utter the words "Muslim Terrorist".

And so he instructs everyone else to follow his lead.

If it makes you feel any better, Galt, it makes me mad too if, in fact, fundamenatlist Christians did not vote for Romney just because he is a Mormon.

I'm assuming you have statistics showing these particular people made that big of a difference in the outcome?

Shame on you again.
I am simply a believer and do not label myself any kind of specific believer.
I supported Romney the first time around and the last time around.
Anyone can be opposed to abortion without being a conservative.
Anyone can favor prayer anywhere.
Anyone can favor home schooling whether they do it or not.
You have appointed yourself the judge and jury of anyone and everyone who believes something different than you other than politics.
Your socialists/economics remark is simply off the charts.
And all this time, I thought we were on same side.
Galt favors lower taxes, smaller government, and the right of the individual to make his own decisions about his own life, free of government interference.

Once you support government control over the individual, you cannot be selective.

As to abortion, it is thoroughly immoral and disgusting, but none of the government's business.

Or mine, if others choose to murder their own children.

Unless and until the majority of Americans snap out of their Obama-induced semi-coma and conservatives can get it across to them that the liberal mentality will make their lives much worse than much better, I agree with you.

Most of us knew things were going to have to get really bad before they got better, and it looks like that might happen sooner than expected.

But once the majority has their heads on straight, I would be in full support of Congress overturning Roe v Wade and giving the issue to the states letting each state vote on it.

Well, as it turns out, we are still on the same side.

I just want the abortion issue to be a states rights issue. That way, the federal government does stay out of it and the people decide. The majority would rule in each state - like it or not.

You can always move to another state if you don't like the outcome either way. And many states would vote against it making getting an abortion a little less convenient.

There are three ways to overturn Roe v. Wade:

A constitutional amendment — That requires a two-thirds majority vote in each House of Congress followed by ratification by three-fourths of the states.

Getting the U.S. Supreme to reverse its previous decision — This is by far the hardest method of overturning Roe v. Wade, since judges are typically reluctant to reverse their own decisions or the decisions of their predecessors. Some have suggested appointing at least five solidly pro-life justices who would be willing to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. This has already shown itself to be unworkable.

Passing a law based on Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution to limit the jurisdiction of the U.S. Supreme Court — This requires a simple majority of both Houses of Congress and the president’s signature. If the president vetoes the bill, the veto can be overridden by two thirds of each House.

Overturning Roe v. Wade under Article III, Section 2 is less difficult than the constitutional amendment or rying to get the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse itself.

The problem is getting the support of the majority of Americans - a significant majority. That's why it wasn't overturned in 2005. The Republicans had the majority, but the bill still didn't pass. The concern was not enough people being on board and the backlash it might cause.

Romney was the right candidate at the right time. But Obama's campaign team had three years to prepare smearing him. Romney didn't react fast enough and hlet several golden opportunities slip through his fingers.

You have to remember he had a significant lead before Hurricane Sandy took the wind out of his campaign, literally, and Obama got to take the spotlight just weeks before the election.

A lot of factors went into Romney losing the election and why we're still living in a parallel universe.

Romney was a loser from the Start besides is a Massachusetts Liberal within the Republican Party and the worst kind especially from Massachusetts.
