Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text> 'In Andrew Carnegie's 1889 essay "The Gospel of Wealth," he stated that business and the wealthy are the caretakers of our future society. " ... "How times have changed. Many of today's entrepreneurs are building their businesses based on the idea of fulfilling a new kind of social contract, one in which organizations voluntarily take responsibility for the "triple bottom line": people, planet, and profits. While corporate social responsibility (CSR) is not a new concept, it has new meaning in a Web 2.0 world. For consumers, the Internet and social media deliver a kaleidoscope view of a company's corporate culture. Given this new insight, consumers are exercising their right to patronize companies with values that mirror their own.
Companies today have to address questions that are external to their core business. Does the organization have a moral compass? Does it support worthy causes? Is it a good corporate citizen? Stepping back and taking a fresh look also gives brands a great opportunity to redefine themselves and optimize for the future. It should come as no surprise to corporate America that CSR has become a talent magnet, a sales magnet, and an investor magnet."

Drone On

During World War II, a small number of German Americans fought for Nazi Germany as members of the Waffen-SS. Does anyone think the U.S. military would have given a second thought to whether it might kill those traitors—whether they were found on the battlefield, in a planning cell back in Berlin, or even in some third country involved in secret operations to disrupt the Allied effort?

Today, we apparently need pages on pages of Justice Department legalese (“Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen Who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al-Qa’ida or an Associated Force”) to justify killing Americans who have become senior jihadist terrorists and who are trying to kill as many innocent Americans as possible.

Of course, it’s no small irony that the candidate who once railed against the Bush administration’s so-called imperial presidency in the war on terror now finds himself under attack by his own base (and a few on the right) for his “secret” program of targeted killings. However, there is nothing like reality—in this case, the global, nebulous network of al Qaeda and allied terrorists—to bring home to a sitting president his fundamental constitutional responsibility to protect the lives and property of his fellow citizens.

The further irony is that while the Justice Department argues that a targeted killing can only take place when the targeted person poses “an imminent threat of violent attack against the United States,” it so broadens the concept that it concludes that the government need not have “clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. person and interests will take place in the immediate future”—only a pattern of plotting such attacks. Given the spotty past record of the intelligence community in actually knowing when a specific terrorist plot is underway, this redefining of “imminent” is reasonable enough—although it can’t help but remind folks of the similar logic behind the Bush administration’s justification for preemptive war.

Answer: Once you take up arms against the United States, you become an enemy combatant, thereby forfeiting the privileges of citizenship and the protections of the Constitution, including due process. You retain only the protection of the laws of war — no more and no less than those of your foreign comrades-in-arms.

I think the thing that raised the most eyebrows was fixed elections on the part of Democrats in 2012.

All kinds of problems with that.

Two former Indiana Democratic Party officials were convicted on multiple counts of election fraud.

Two St. Joseph County Democratic operatives were found guilty of conspiring to forge signatures in order to get both Obama and then-presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on the ballot in Indiana.

Can anyone picture this scenario if Obama and his "team IRS" hadn't been caught?
Picture poor Mr. Jones, a 78-year-old man who has several medical problems and frequent falls and is in need of a power wheelchair. The IRS will decide if Mr. Jones' quality of life is worth the cost of a power wheelchair and, if he is a republican, they will also do an audit on him at the same time he's wobbling with a walker, falling down and crawling to the bathroom.
Why is that so easy for me to imagine? Is it just me?
Its just you. No one else is that uninformed to think the IRS will determine if you get a power wheelchair.

I agree. Once you take up arms against this country, you are no longer a citizen with rights.

But answer me this. Why does Obama have no problem droning an American who joined the enemy but wants to try all other foreign terrorists in our courts - rights and all?

Kind of kooky and backwards. Don't you agree?

Twenty minutes inland of Atlantic City Homer.

SPOTTY Power outages (INLAND NJ-NOT including the VAST shoreline area that of which received the MAJOR impacts)for ohhh---about five hours...the evening OF the storm. After that-NO problemos.
SPOTTY outages in CT, shoreline AND inland.

We ALL saw Staten Island (does the ISLAND part give ya hint) and the COASTLINES, from Jersey on up.

Hope you folks in Pa weren't too sunk out by power outages, while the East COASTAL areas SWAM.

Fck YOU Homer- for apparently NOT knowing the difference between NJ/NY/CT/RI shorelines (and INLANDS) and PA.

"Punish our enemies." Obama wasn't talking about terrorists.

Good thing you're on his friendly side. Must be nice.

Fact is, you and Obama could care less about the rest of us who refuse to fall in line like good little liberal soldiers.

I suspect your problem is comprehension. You should get that fixed.
Then again, that would require the desire on your part to do so!
Let's see how my comprehension is. The question was what did Bush do that caused you to conlcude he was a terrible president. Your answer was "he didn't do anything good".
Let's assume Bush actually did something. And, let's consider your answer "nothing good". Therefore, Bush did something that caused you to label him a terrible president.
Once again. What was it that Bush did that caused you to think he was a terrible president?
Stop dodging, boy. Answer the question.
