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

Eric Holder. Why is this sellout still Attorney General? He's making the Department of Justice into something like Orwell's Ministry of Truth from 1984, i.e. where the name of a ministry only serves to indicate the exact opposite of their actual purpose.
It's the culture...
Holder is a modern Roland Freisler.

No surprise a communist would say that. The goal of communism is to take the power from the people and put it in the hands of a few to make it easier to control the powerless...all in the name of "fairness" and the "common good".
Wolves in sheep's clothing. Some people are born suckers and fall for any hype. They always buy the lemons they're being sold without ever questioning the motive behind the hype.
The same people never learn from the same mistakes made in the past - and smooth-talking salesmen see them coming a mile away.
It's actually kind of sad...going through life that clueless to be taken advantage of so easily...
...considering Obama and his Chicago thugs are the smooth-talking salesmen in this case. Some of the best con men come across as the most sincere and trusting.
The rule of thumb is never trust anyone who has something to gain by your naivety without verifying their motives and credentials.
Trust but verify. This president can't be trusted. His motives are easily verified.
Indeed ;'trust but verify'. Van Jones may have said big government is better, but George W Bush and Ronald reagan actually did it. Growth in Government were largest in those two republican administrations. Look it up! "In modern history, Ronald Reagan oversaw the largest number of debt ceiling increases, and George W. Bush approved a near doubling of the borrowing cap during his two terms in office.

Here's a look at the debt ceiling under modern U.S. presidents."...[1. Debt Ceiling Under Obama
"President Barack Obama"Alex Wong / Getty Images

The debt ceiling has been raised on three occasions under President Barack Obama. The debt ceiling was $11.315 trillion when the Democrat was sworn into office in January 2009 and increased by nearly $3 trillion or 26 percent by summer 2011, to $14.294 trillion.][2. Debt Ceiling Under Bush43 The debt ceiling was raised on seven occasions during President George W. Bush's two terms in office, from $5.95 trillion in 2001 to nearly double that,$11.315 trillion, in 2009 - an increase of $5.365 trillion or 90 percent.][5. Debt Ceiling Under Reagan [ The debt ceiling was raised on 17 occasions under President Ronald Reagan, nearly tripling from $935.1 billion to $2.8 trillion.] Thus, George W Bush squandered away economic surplus achieved by the Clinton Administration and Reagan wasted the huge 'peace dividend' from the ending of the Cold War.

Ah! So it would appear the cons see bushie boy as "...an honest, God-fearing President..."

So yes, such a man does scare me. In fact, he should scare all Americans.

Your comparison doesn't make any sense except as a contrast in styles. Eric Holder has acted within U S Constitutional authority whereas Freisler abolished constitutional authority in Germany.

<quoted text>Nope. The IRS offices are not located in the White House;they're no where near each other. There ought to be a statute of limitation on redundant stupidity .Time's up. The Republicans should not be allowed to waste the tax payers money and time on silly bureaucratic messes as an excuse to not address the serious issues plaguing the country like catastrophic climate change. What will you say when your grandchildren ask what you did in the climate wars? It'll be more than embarrassing to tell them that you diddled their future savings and livelihood on trying to blame a popular Black President for a government tax accountant's over-exuberance.
Obama personally sent his IRS dogs to screw Conservatives and will pay the price for corrupting the political process.

You're not even being honest anymore. Or;Don't you know that the bulk of what is being implemented in Obamacare is being left to the states to distribute and administer?

<quoted text>Don't call republicans in Congress. They're trying to pass a bill to make you pay more in student fees. "Yesterday, House Republicans passed a bill making student loans more expensive. You read that right, more expensive.
That's just crazy.
More than ever, Americans need a college degree to find a job. And Republicans just made it even more difficult. Meanwhile, the Wall Street corporations and the big banks who helped crash this economy are being handed sweetheart deals.
Call your Senators today and ask them to support the Elizabeth Warren Student Loan Plan.
Unless the Senate takes action, student loan rates are set to jump dramatically on July 1st, while the big banks are handed money at an almost 900% discount." Check this out: http://www.opednews.com/Diary/Yesterday-House...
Far too many young people are spending far too much money and incurring far too much debt to obtain worthless college degrees from third-rate colleges.

Community colleges are a prime example, granting absolutely worthless degrees.

We have created a society where most waitresses have college degrees, because they have no skills and cannot find a job that requires their "education."

The idea that a college degree is essential is absurd, when skilled trades earn far more than many college graduates.

Why continue to embarrass yourself babe?

You had a better understanding of how ObamaCare actually rolls out three years ago than you do presently__your just throwing sht on the wall.

A common sense approach to repairing a weel known problem was overlooked for decades until Hillary Clinton attempted to get the ball rolling. She was laughed off the stage by both parties before detailing her disappointment in Living History and elsewhere.

Perhaps you remember the industry sponsored Harry and Louise TV ads.

BushCo completely ignored health care reform.

Go tell that to Exxon-Mobile who deprived the resident citizens of Arkansas their 1st Amendment rights to view the damage and clean-up of their private property , censored freedom of the press,locked down the entire town etc. "There’s one Exxon gas station in Mayflower, Ark.

Before last Friday, that’s likely as close as Mayflower residents got to the multinational oil and gas behemoth ExxonMobil. But after the Pegasus Pipeline burst last Friday, sending thousands of gallons of tar-sands oil into the Northwoods neighborhood, the company became omnipresent in this small town of 2,200 people."

None whatsoever. Neither free speech nor civil liberties.

This administration is not even trying to break the law or ignore the constitution discretely anymore. It's a brazen last-ditch effort to fundamentally transform this nation and play dumb while doing it.

Hard to believe anyone could be so easily duped among us and, yet, there are too many even now.
