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

All I complain about is the double standard and the hypocrisy by the left when it comes to Obama's acceleration of drones.
If the same number of innocents were killed in the crossfire under a Bush accelerated drone program, the screaming by the liberal media would be deafening.
But we can hear a pin drop.
I haven't heard the pin drop yet but what I HAVE heard drop is all pretense of fair, balanced and neutral reporting by Liberal Media Cheerleading outlets.

There is enough blame to go around for past mistakes but, as a good friend of mine once said, the definition of insanity is to keep repeating mistakes while hoping for a better result the next time around.

Try not to hurt your peabrain cell.
For one, we DIDN"T HOP anywhere 'over to Libya'--no U S troop deployments in the Libyan civil war to remove Quadhafi--the U S only provided limited air support and Intelligence information to our European allies, the Arab League, U. N. and the Libyan prime minister's government.And with the U S Congress having been fully informed and in agreement with the U S actions.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

The time has passed for listening patiently to a Community Organizer well known for his falsehoods. Recall when Jason had himself lashed to the mainsail while his shipmates all had wax poured into their ears? It's time for the wax folks. The Siren Song eerily screeching from the mouth of the Magic Negro is something out of a Stephen King novel.

I'm not waiting for "shame on me". I'm outta here and so are millions of other well-meaning Americans. Let the Boy Messiah make a new home for himself in Benghazi - he deserves it.

Not benefits. Not affording expensive treatments and procedures by paying physicians to advise end-of-life decisions and/or hospice instead.

Should that be the government's role?

Should health care be the government's/IRS's role?

The government is so overbloated now it's out of control already.

Obama's speech today was longer than his State of the Union Address and he didn't tell us anything we didn't already know.

It was a strategy to keep Americans distracted and from talking about all the scandals this Memorial weekend.

It's not about the drones. It's about the deafening silence coming from the left and the liberal media about the drones.

Obama has been saying the same thing for almost five years.

The only thing that's changed is the buck apparently DOESN'T stop with him.

He couldn't say "I" enough when it came to doing what any sitting president would have done after all the years of hard work finding bin Laden in taking the credit.

But he doesn't seem to have anything to do with anything else.

Nor does he seem to know anything about anything else.

Obama is going to have to fire a number of top officials close to him next week if he's going to have a chance in heck of surviving the IRS and DOJ targeting scandals.

He's also going to have to do some major housecleaning within the IRS and DOJ to even try and restore some trust in this government.

But I doubt he will do any of those things. If he does, it will at least be an act of leadership...for a change.

Ronald Reagan was a Democrat prior and casted his votes for FDR every time and in the 1960's is when Pseudo Liberal Ronald Reagan became a Republican which a lot the Pseudo Liberal Democrats that did and crossed over into the Republican party which the Conservatives in the 1960's disagreed with their beliefs label Reagan and those other former Democrats as Neo Cons because they still held to the beliefs of FDR's Pseudo Liberalism but did not agree with the New Left Democrats version of Pseudo Liberalism who took over the Democrat Party in the 1960's.

Ronald Reagan on Franklin Roosevelt: The Significance of Style

Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself “a New Dealer to the core.” He summarized his views in this way:“I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didn’t trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasn’t enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine.” When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded “he was just spouting Republican propaganda.”

Not sure what it's going to take. Things couldn't be much worse than Americans be targeted as enemies because they don't support this administration or want smaller government and less taxes.

Or fellow journalists being targeted by the Department of Justice for just doing their jobs.

The irony is that this administration did more leaking about the capture of bin Laden than any reporter gathering information for a news story.

The IRS scandal is just beginning and more information is starting to emerge about Fox News and Fox journalists being targeted. The exact breaking point for the liberal media is yet to be seen.

The only act of leadership this boob is capable of is leading from behind. He is so "after the fact" that he's hilarious.

He's like a cheap SNL Douglas MacArthur leaving the Philippine Islands and saying "I hope I will return if Valerie let's me. It's her fault, you know...my leaving..If Eric Holder had just pushed me a little harder I could have won here, you know...I read it in the paper ...just like you guys...the Japs are coming.."

He's become a caricature of himself.

The President has broad constitutional power to take military action in response to the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.

The President has constitutional power not only to retaliate against any person, organization, or State suspected of involvement in terrorist attacks on the United States, but also against foreign States suspected of harboring or supporting such organizations.

The stuff you put in caps about the President is not in the Constitution. Congress has the sole authority to declare war.

The Constitutionality of the War Powers Act of 1973 has never been tested in court.

Companies buy other companies and shut down the unprofitable portions every day.

For some companies, like Hostess Bakeries, the brand name and products are the only valuable assets. The physical facilities and employee contracts are liabilities that are larger than the assets.

Hence, bankruptcy.
