Barack Obama, our next President

According to Obama he knows nothing about anything. He could be a lyin' but it may tragically true and Val is running the country.
Really old clueless one, please be so kind as to explain all of the help your pathetic party has done to help in any way? What jobs bill have they proposed? Waiting????

UNPOPULARITY
It is clear that the Justice Department overreached on the Associated Press scandal and that its strong-arm tactics are likely to have a chilling effect. But Americans are not big fans of mass media. A November Gallup poll found that only a fourth of Americans rate the honesty and ethical standards of journalists highly. Even bankers ranked higher.
As for Tea Party groups that received extra scrutiny from the I.R.S., an Associated Press-GfK poll released last month found that fewer than a fourth of Americans say they support the group. The Tea Party may well be passé.
The policy issue is a different story, as The Washington Post pointed out this week:“In 2010, the Supreme Court’s landmark ‘Citizens United’ decision cleared the way for corporations and labor unions to raise and spend unlimited sums of money, and register for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(4).”
That decision was extremely unpopular. An ABC News/Washington Post poll released nearly a month after the decision was handed down found that 80 percent of Americans opposed it.
So an unpopular movement applied for tax-exempt status under conditions made possible by an unpopular court decision, in order to influence politics with unfathomable amounts money from unnamed donors? Good luck gaining sympathy for that.
ZEALOTRY
The Congressional Tea Party Caucus founder, Michele Bachmann, who never misses a chance to say something asinine, suggested to the conservative site wnd.com that it was “reasonable” to worry that the I.R.S. might use Obamacare to kill conservatives.
The article reads, in part:
“Since the I.R.S. also is the chief enforcer of Obamacare requirements, she asked whether the I.R.S.’s admission means it ‘will deny or delay access to health care’ for conservatives. At this point, she said, that ‘is a reasonable question to ask.’”
“Reasonable” and “Bachmann” don’t even belong in the same conversation, let alone the same sentence, and yet she remains one of the most visible spokeswomen for the movement.
Even former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned Republicans against overreaching. In an NPR interview that aired Friday, Gingrich, referring to the impeachment of President Clinton, said,“I think we overreached in ’98 — how’s that for a quote you can use?”
He continued, advising his party to be “calm and factual.” Ha! That’s too rich, and too late. Republicans are already invoking the I-word.
Republicans are their own worst enemies at times like these, unable to leave well-enough alone, and missing chances to honestly engage the public as they race off the cliff in the supercharged outrage machine.

You have a real problem with wanting to be Prom King and refuse to accept equal number of citizens think Obama is a failure as those that approve of his bumbling leadership.

This is what you get when you try to live your life vicariously through someone else. What is worse is you choose a government official.

Americans' Attention to IRS, Benghazi Stories Below Average
Slim majorities of Americans are very or somewhat closely following the situations involving the Internal Revenue Service (54%) and the congressional hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and its aftermath (53%)-- comparatively low based on historical measures of other news stories over the last two decades.

thanks FOX.
Nice of you to ignore the fact that 74% think this is serious and when you base your hopes on others remaining forever stupid you are teetering on being a sociopath. Actually the numbers are not that shabby and shows the voting public is paying attention. The rest our lost in the cell phones.

"FOX Business: Capitalism Lives Here

The blue-chip average roared past the 15000 mark for the first time ever as traders cheered data suggesting than labor market is in better condition than previous thought.

Today's Markets

As of 3:06 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 139 points, or 0.94%, to 14971, the S&P 500 jumped 16.2 points, or 1%, to 1614 and the Nasdaq Composite surged 37.8 points, or 1.1%, to 3378.

Wall Street has had a manic week: The markets sold off on Wednesday, just to rally on Thursday. Now, world trading desks have focused their attention squarely on the American economy.

The Dow and S&P 500 both hit milestones. The blue-chip average topped 15000 for the first time ever, while the broader S&P surpassed 1600. Both were up more than 13% on the year.

Economically-sensitive stocks led the way higher. Industrial, materials, financial and consumer discretionary names fared the best. Defensive plays like utilities, telecommunications and consumer staples performed the worst.

Economic Woes 'In the Rearview Mirror'

The Labor Department said nonfarm payrolls rose by 165,000 in April from March, beating expectations of 145,000. The unemployment rate ticked down to 7.5% from 7.6% for the month, the lowest level since December 2008. Economists expected the rate to hold steady. March’s nonfarm payroll increase was also revised up to 138,000 from a previously reported 88,000."

Man you are in for a tragic bumpy ride. You need to face the reality that Obama is now a lame duck and worse a wounded one. The press are actually asking him "real" questions about his lack of accountability for anything. At best Obama looks like a bumbling fool; at worse-a person who keeps an enemy list and punishes citizens who don't agree with him.

God Will Get the Last Laugh!

It's hard to imagine God laughing, even though He is the most joyous being in the universe.

A more common picture of God is anger and judgment. His anger and judgment are real, but there are also occasions when God laughs.

In the Old Testament book of Psalms, we read, "The One enthroned in heaven laughs" (Psalm 2:4). Here God is not laughing in joy but in derision.

The scene in Psalm 2 is the end of this age as we know it. Jesus Christ the Son of God is returning to set up His kingdom on earth.

Psalm 2:6 sets the stage: "I [God] have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill." Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is and will be the sovereign ruler of the universe.

His kingdom is further described in verse 9: "You will rule them with an iron scepter." The iron scepter leads us to believe that not all the subjects of this kingdom will willingly pay homage to Jesus Christ as King.

As a matter of fact, in verses 1-3, we see the activity of the kings on earth who were in power. They were conspiring and plotting how to overthrow this new King (verse 1). In verse 2 they decided to take their stand against God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ. Verse 3 declares their planned rebellion: "Let us break their chains ... and throw off their fetters."

All of this would be the expected response of kings and people when it is announced that a new regime is being installed: resist, go to battle, and use every resource to maintain control. That is when God laughs. He scoffs at their efforts (verse 4).

Regardless of what one might think in this twenty-first century, there is a Sovereign God, the Creator of the universe, who is in absolute control. But even though God is all-powerful, He is full of love and mercy, and He allows His created beings to dissent. God loves, and desires to be loved; therefore, He must give His created beings the power of choice.

Satan was the first recorded being to rebel. God had elevated him to high station in heaven. Satan responded in pride and went against God (Isaiah 14:12-15).

People have the same choice, and many have listened to the lies of Satan and stood against God. God continues to love and extend His grace to all. Jesus Christ the Son of God went to the cross and died for the sins of all mankind. Whosoever will believe on the finished work of Christ may come to Him.

So here we are. God is in control. Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of God, ready to assume His kingdom on earth. The battle lines are drawn.

Some deny the existence of God. Some claim that Jesus Christ was a good man, a great teacher, but certainly not the only begotten Son of the Living God.

God is laughing at the opposition, at those who have willfully set themselves against God and His righteous claims. He says, "You kings, be wise; be warned.... Serve the LORD ... rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way" (Psalm 2:10-12).

Even in the face of all this opposition, God is still reaching out. He is saying, "Kiss the Son," that is, come to Christ. Give your life to Him lest you suffer the terrible consequences of your sin and rebellion.

God will get the last laugh, but it is not a laugh of joy. It is more like He can't believe that people in the face of truth will still choose to go their own way.

There is still time to come to Christ. "Kiss the Son" and have eternal life.

If you're worried about 'culture of violence' then work towards better gun control laws , background checks that can keep illegal guns off the streets, take the guns out of the hands of criminals and mentally -deranged people.

crying wolf a thousand times leaves you with no room left to cry at all.
so how is it that FOXbots can't see that reality?
I know this is very heart wrenching for you as you appear to have confuse yours and Obama's ego as being one.

The reality is Obama invalidated his own Presidency when he came out shouting I know nothing about anything to avoid responsibility.
