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

The same person that has been blamed before Obama.....THE ONE IN CHARGE!!! That is the reality that Obamabots haven't faced yet. Obama is being treated no different than any president in history. All president's are held accountable for THEIR administrations and the agenda they follow while in office. That's the way it goes and the way it has always gone. Nothing different. It's called Responsibility and Accountability. EVERY president has been expected to have both! The only difference in this case is that liberals don't hold Obama accountable nor do they believe he is responsible for anything that happens during his administration. It is only those that agree with Obama's agenda that are being different. The rest of us are treating him just like every president before him and just like every president that will follow him.
Bullshit. He's the President in Absentia. Not only is he never held responsible, his Cabinet, department heads, lackeys, and groupies don't have a clue what's going on around them either. It's as if you're all mindless drones guided by the dishonesty imprinted in your DNA.

<quoted text> You hear they know where 8 of the people involved with Benghazi are but won't detain because they haven't gathered enough info to bring them to trail. They even know the brand of coffee they drink. Something mighty fishy going on there.
Obama simply doesn't know what to do with them. Does he send them to Gitmo when he said he would close Gitmo five years ago?

The only other alternative is to round them up and try them in our courts with the same rights as American citizens - lawyers, Miranda rights, the taxpayer cost of holding them and trying them, the whole kit and kaboodle.

He won't drop a drone on them though. Just Americans who take up arms and act like them.

Yeah, but Obama only wants foreign terrorists to be tried as criminals in our court systems.

He only drones Americans.

Krauthammer: Of all issues, Rand Paul’s drone concern ‘most ridiculous and absurd’
On this weekend’s broadcast of the syndicated “Inside Washington” television program, conservative Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer blasted Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s recent filibuster and mocked the idea of a drone attack on United States soil.
“Well look, I am grateful he raised this issue, because I think we have reached a point in the country where we are sick and tired of the way the administration is going around blowing people to kingdom come while sitting in their living rooms because of a suspicion — I’m talking about Americans,” Krauthammer said.“Just last week, my neighbor was blown away during a chicken barbecue by his pool.”
Read more:
When asked whether the president had the authority to order any American killed within the borders of the United States at his whim, why did it take Obama two weeks to answer that question?
It's a simple answer. It takes less than 10 seconds. Anyone who has ever read the Constitution at least once in their life will know it:

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

In short:
No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

Why did it take a (supposed) constitutional lawyer two weeks to discover this?

That is the problem. Obama doesn't even know what's written in the Constitution because he's never read it. But, why should he read it? He's been indoctrinated his entire life in the belief that it should be eliminated. There's no reason to learn something that isn't even relevant.

You really are ignorant about the purpose of Obamacare.
If the government says it has to control health-care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care and end-of-life decisions, people are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.
It's just a matter of common sense.

If you as a patient requests your doctor's advice, the doctor can be paid for that service.

That is it.

During World War II, a small number of German Americans fought for Nazi Germany as members of the Waffen-SS.

Were these American citizens or German citizens?

Before or after the US entered the war?

But schools in RED STATE OK can't afford shelters for little school children?

This is insanity in practice.

hand out millions to filthy rich guys, and deny shelter for school kids.

Bush gave them tax cuts, free gov loot.

Many of us believe he'd be the president now if Romney had put the spotlight of Benghazi directly on Obama in the third presidential debate.

Very unfortunate he let that golden opportunity slip through his hands. And ours.

Banks should be allowed to fail.
However, the concept that the government would "kill outright" any business is chilling, but likely with a Fascist Obama government.
It may be 'chilling' to you Galt, but it is the first law of capitalism that weak companies be allowed to fall so the stronger ones can prosper; and moral capitalism states that it would be immoral to prolong the misery and suffering of sick and corrupt companies. Corporate euthanasia is more humane than waiting until the company depletes all their capital stock, people are thrown out of work, and what's left isn't even envious pickings for vultue capitalists scavenging around the bare bones amidst the agonizing sounds of gnashing of teeth and blood-curdling sobs.

leap of faith reasoning is for FOXbots. so for me: you'll have to cite it.
I know this slipped by you, but the weaponized domestic drone program wasn't affected by the so-called "cuts" of the so-called "sequester". That was more important to Obama than teachers and fire fighters and air traffic control. Also receiving additional funding from the other unimportant functions was Janet Napolitano's building of... how did Obama put it... a "civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the Armed Forces.
