Barack Obama, our next President

Ok. Let's try this again. Read the post, then respond to the statements in the post with something other than some retorical question about Obama being just as good of a president as Bush, for example.
The subject is the role of the Marine guard at the White House:
You didn't respond to the post. Here it is again for your convenient reference:
The Marine's sole function is to protect the president. Obviously, to any person connected to the real world, this sole function was severely impeded.
Perhaps Obama thinks he doesn't need Marines to protect him. I've got a simple solution. Don't deploy Marines to the White House.
This is nothing more than more evidence that Obama is an elitist with a medieval mentality that categorizes everyone outside of his ruling elite circle as peasants bound to the land.
Since Obama thinks money grows on trees, take some of that free money and hire some butlers.
WRONG STUPID! The protection of the President is not the function of the Marines but rather the Secret Service. The Marines are used on occasions such as when a foreign dignitary is being received for ceremonial duties and sometimes that means holding an umbrella to keep the President and his guest dry.
You're an idiot DB!

‘Operation Wide Receiver’: The Bush Administration Had Its Very Own ATF ‘Gun Walking’ Scandal

No ONE died from THAT!

BIG difference ...

Look it up!

Here I'll DO it for you :)
`````````

Scandal: The president's spokesman confuses a "controlled delivery" operation known as Wide Receiver

with the quite different Fast and Furious

and couldn't even remember the name of the Border Patrol agent killed by it.

During a contentious press conference where even the White House press corps seemed to have had enough with the administration's tap dancing about an operation that began on its watch and got two federal agents killed, ABC's Jake Tapper had to feed a stumbling Carney the name of the Border Patrol agent killed by it.

Dubbed "Operation Wide Receiver," the Bush-era operation was run out of Tucson between 2006 and 2007, ending before Bush left office and before Fast and Furious began under Obama in 2009. The differences between it and Fast and Furious are vast, starting with the fact that Wide Receiver produced no dead bodies.

Operation Wide Receiver used the common law enforcement tactic of "controlled delivery" in which the illegal sales of weapons were allowed to take place, the movements of the weapons were closely monitored and the end purchasers were then apprehended. It involved gun-tracing, not gun-walking.

Ok for the very, very slow morons in the class:
Congress has complete control of the money the government spends. The sole function of the president is to make a suggestion, which is the budget proposal required by law that Obama has ignored every goddam time.
The Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, with a declining deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion and a total debt of 8.5 trillion (having increased by 3.5 trillion dollars since the Arabs declared war on the United
States on September 11, 2001).
Since, the Democrats have increased the deficit a thousand percent, and doubled the debt.
So what massive increases in spending by Congress occurred that somehow escaped Bush's veto pen moron? There weren't any. We entered into a recession and unemployment went up and business activity went down meaning less revenue in the form of taxes. Meanwhile we were still paying for two wars and there was added expenditure in the form of unemployment compensation.
Your assertion that Democrats have increased the debt by 1000% is just a flat out lie with nothing to back it up.

Then again, the liberal dupes are the ones who close their eyes to the facts ...

1) Holder has said it was harassment.

2) So did the IRS Director

3) We're now up to 500 conservative groups having been victims.

4) The Inspector not only agrees, but said the IRS Director knew about the abuse in 2011, which means he lied to Congress. How much denial must one be in to ignore that???

Meanwhile (ROFLMAO) Obama's 501(c)4 was approve in January, before the inauguration.(His campaign committee, rather large, converted to a 501 to promote issues.)

Oooops, I forgot. It's a Democratic President so all the loyalists are required to repeat every talking point without question (or thought)

The Obama administration is, unfortunately, in this IRS debacle. The Secretary of the Treasury is a cabinet appt and who should be informed of potentially sensitive operations in agencies under his purview. Someone reports to someone who reports to someone. If a national office was set up in Cincinnati to analyze tax-exempt applications, then I would expect that reports were written.

I don't think it looks good when the President says he learns about what's going in his administration from the news. What does he have a cabinet for, after all? To keep watch and give him the heads up on these kinds of things.

I'm not in favor of this kind of story. Progressives expected this kind of harassment from Bush--which is why Obama was elected...joyfully. We would be better than that. I find it problematic that the President cannot express his views and values forcefully enough at the outset that his administration cannot make decisions based on that outlook.

Creating a lifestyle of dependency by taking away one's dignity is what you call compassion?
A safety net will always be available. Charities and churches will also reach out to those in need.
But the government is not a charity organization. Neither is it the collective conscious of the people.
Once you go there, the next step is a police state. Just ask the Venezuelans. Chavez had a "big heart" too in winning over the people until he took over the media and cofiscated people's businesses in the name of "charity".
Aren't you supposed to be the smart one?
Well Carol, here's the preamble to the Constitution;
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Do you know what "promote the general welfare means"? It means that we don't let our citizens go hungry or homeless if we can help it. The safety net you keep referring to is under assault by the GOP. The Ryan budget was called immoral by the Conference of Catholic Bishops which is one of the most conservative groups in the country.
But keep on dodging the original questions Carol.

How about this? We satisfy ourselves that the IRS itself is irredeemably broken and needs to be immediately reformed in a very comprehensive manner. The IRS is obviously behaving in a criminal manner. Who cares whether they were initially hired by Republicans or Democrats. Fire everyone!

Does The Tax Exempt Obama Foundation Actually Have A Real Address?

While it is conceivable that a smaller organization might use a UPS address, what is more questionable is giving an address where they have never been, apparently.

"8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions."
Bullshit.
The government uses any programmed belief to manipulate public opinion. Religion is just one of many programmed beliefs available for use. In the case of the fascist Democrats, they programmed the ocuntry with lies to brainwash the population that the United States is inherently evil, and later (today) use that programmed belief to manipulate public opinion.
Your reference is obviously programming you to treat religion (in particular Christianity, while programming you to absolve Islam) with disdain.
"9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite."
GM? The Fed counterfeiting money? Obama taking over Wall Street banks? Obama creating a so-called "green" industry and economy... a failed corporate system being artificially sustained?
"10. Labor is suppressed...."
Only those labor organizations not alligned with the fascist party seeking power. Lying again.
"11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked."
Disallowing non-progressives to teach in our universities? Teaching fraudulent history and misrepresentation of philosophy? Media assault on any opposition to Obama?
And, you just got to love this one...
Fraudulent elections....
Perhaps you were in a coma when there were 70 precincts just in the Cleveland area of Ohio where the voting machines were programmed to steal 100 percent of the vote. It's easy to find the locations where 100 percent of the vote was stolen. It's impossible to find the locations where the computer programs were written to steal one in three, or one in four votes.
Nobody knows who won the election.
What you have done is prove the Democrats are fascist.
More of DB's fantasies without a shred of evidence to back them up.

Really? What welfare programs exactly were enacted by the fore fathers who wrote those words in the Constitution? Please tell us what steps our government took before the 1930's to keep citizens from going hungry or homeless.

Interesting.
Of those 5,000, a little over 4,000 were killed in Iraq.
I'll just skip over the party line propaganda bullshit "so he could award his friends and cronies billions in no bid government contracts" and get right to the point:

It's 9/12. You are the president. What do you do? Do you:

A) Surrender to the Arab terrorists? or
B) Do the usual Bill Clinton response and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction? or
C) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and some-fucking-how you expect to achieve a different result? or
D) You do it differently to achieve a different result than the Soviets experienced?

If you can think of another option, please begin your response with a description of that option, and include some justification.

Gun dealer and writer Mike Detty was a central figure in Wide Receiver, who, in his capacity as confidential informant for ATF, sold 450 rifles and handguns to suspected traffickers. As Paul Barrett reported in Bloomberg Businessweek,“The vast majority of the guns were never recovered by U.S. authorities.” This means control was not maintained on all deliveries, and it is impossible to tell if any people have been killed, and if so, how many.

You really read too much of your own propaganda.
The economic collapse:
In 1999 Bill Clinton used the White House to coerce Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nationwide a Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.(There is a 1999 article in the New York Times describing this, and also predicting the effect it would have on the economy that we observed in 2008, if you care to look into it.)
In 2003 the Democrats were negotiating with the Republicans for no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime loan program, and in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight, the Democrats supported the war in Iraq.
In 2008 the economy collapsed after two years of oversight by Democrats Christopher Dodd, Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee (which Barack Obama was on) and Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, as was predicted in the 1999 New York Times article.
Can you explain how I accurately described the economic collapse and didn't use Bush's name once?
