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

Everyone already knew Obama was incompetent; the difference now is they can express it openly.

That plus Big Government is a BIG, dangerous mistake is my other take away.

President Obama gave an outstanding speach at Morehouse:
“We know that too many young men in our community continue to make bad choices,” Mr. Obama said.“And I have to say, growing up I made quite a few myself. Sometimes I wrote off my own failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down.”
“But one of the things all of you have learned over the last four years is there’s no longer any room for excuses,” the president said to the roughly 500 graduates in a downpour, his words punctuated by claps of thunder.
Wearing academic robes in maroon and black — he was later awarded an honorary law degree — Mr. Obama singled out a graduate, Leland Shelton, who, as a four-year-old had been taken away from his mother by the state. By 14, he was in foster care.
On Sunday, Mr. Shelton graduated with Phi Beta Kappa honors and is enrolling at Harvard Law School. The president said that Mr. Shelton planned to use his law degree to advocate for other foster children.
Above all, Mr. Obama exhorted the graduates to extend a hand to other black men, noting that his own success depended less on his Ivy League credentials than on the sense of empathy and obligation he felt, as a black man, to his brothers.
But for the grace of God, I might be in their shoes,” the president said.“I might have been in prison. I might have been unemployed. I might not have been able to support a family.”
Reflecting on his turbulent childhood, Mr. Obama said,“I sure wish I had had a father who was not only present, but involved; didn’t know my dad. And so my whole life, I’ve tried to be for Michelle and my girls what my father wasn’t for my mother and me.”
Declaring that “there are some things, as black men, we can only do for ourselves,” Mr. Obama urged the graduates to “keep setting an example for what it means to be a man.” And he asked them to extend their sense of justice to other minorities.

Nothing will become of any of the"scandals"the right is pushing so hard for. You can only block Obama's ideology until mid term elections. Then your asses will be booted into purgatory, where your voices will really be irrelevant. No amount of"scandals,"rumors, or lies will change that fact!
Uh huh. It has already made Obama a lame duck.

<quoted text>The IRS (in the Cincinnati office) was taking up the applications as they were submitted.
During the suspect period most of the apps for 501 (c)(4) tax exemptions were coming in from political oriented groups such as TeaParty and 9/12 which are not exactly aligned with social welfare. Matter of fact an argument can be made that those sorts of groups stand firmly against social welfare.
Obviously the apps presented were full of red flags thus the questions that the IRS wished answered in writing. The IRS was attempting to justify that the groups focus would be social welfare and not "free money for the fanciest anti Obama website."
One app that fell under scrutiny came from the Liberty Township Ohio TeaParty. Do we really need TeaParty groups every ten miles like McDonald's??? Do TeaParty groups really need to compete with one another for the "biggest" donors? How about rallies held in churches where the political messages are accompanied by religious ones?
The Ohio (R) congressman who stood up for the Liberty Township group clearly did not know the difference between a 501 (c)(4) and a 501 (c)(3)__or else he was lying. I sent a nasty email to the fat little fk. He didn't reply!
Thank you Supreme Court. None of those groups should have tax exempt status.

Anti-Choice. Nah just messing with ya, I believe those radical religious zealots prefer the term Pro-Life as it's much more uplifting that the truth that they are anti-choice, anti-abortion, hell anti-women for that matter.'Anti' has a negative connotation.

New Yorkers, when asked on the street about Benghazi and the IRS scandal, had not heard of either. At least 12 people were asked.
One student at Cornell University couldn't even name the VP.
New York predominately votes Democrat. These are the people who put this president back into office.
And those students were all raised by conservative , stable, well-established republican parents.

and that justifies the IRS's behavior?

There were plenty of non political groups targeted because the owners were conservative.

Just keep defending these criminal actions, your party will be thrown in the trash that much quicker.

<quoted text> At least 1 of you right wingers learned not to trust them polls. That's what got your asses torched a few months back! According to the polls, Romney had a 4-5 point lead just days before the manslaughter took place on Nov 6. The same thing will happen come mid term elections. The enlightened is just waiting patient to remove those speed bumps from office, so Obama can fully implement his agenda! They won't sleep & assume like they did in 2010. You can count on it!
You like polls until the same outlier poll that had Obama at 53% states

59% approve of the GOP handling of Benghazi

then you want to ignore them.

Do you find it believable that the no one tells the president anything and he only finds out what is going on by reading the papers?

Dang, makes it tough for Progressives to punish their enemies when the Constitution keeps getting in the way.

Like how you ignore the Left groups, probably the same ones bitching about the other side, who falls under the same tax exemption.

Imagine for just a tiny moment, in your pinhead brain; how meaningful and historical it was for the first black President of the United States to give the commencement speech at Morehouse? MLK's alma mater.
One day, you will choke on your snark. Your ignorance is appalling, you should truly be ashamed of yourself. You're old enough to know better so there's likely no hope of enlightening the likes of you. The only saving grace is that pretty soon, all you old hateful white supremacists will be dead, and your hatefulness will go in the hole with you.
Imagine for just a tiny moment, in your pinhead brain; how meaningful and historical it was for the first black President of the United States to give the commencement speech at Morehouse? MLK's alma mater... SAID "a" dumchit ...

If it had been Planned Parenthood, moveon.org or any other liberal groups targeted...my, my, my...the tides on here would turn as fast as an incoming tsunami.
Even the far left liberal commentators and Jon Stewart gets it.
Not the loons on here though. Goes right over their heads.
Out of 300 groups that the I.R.S.'targeted ' only 70 were right-wing , Tea Party groups, the rest were left-wing , liberal groups. You're right, Aunt Bettie Lou, www.moveon.org , ACORN, PlannedParenthood should protest loudly for the unequal treatment and conservative bias in the selective political profiling .
