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 ...

Obama can't prevent another attack but Bush could?
Slap yourself really hard. Right now. You deserve it for posting that.
1st of all, I was responding to your boy's post about there being another terrorist attack. If an attack is inevitable like Whatever posted, then there's nothing Obama can do.

2nd, you can deny & divert all you want to, Bush could've easily prevented 9/11 &, he had no reason invading Iraq. The Iraqi invasion sparked this global jihad. Evidenced by the Boston bombing. 2 muslim brothers from Russia bombing in the name of Islam. Bush didn't think of the outcome before he decided to settle his daddies score. So going by Whatever's logic, Obama can not stop the inevitable but, Bush could've.

Bush and Obama in crisis mode !
The contrast couldn't be much greater: two killer storms, two commanders in chief, two very different responses. President Obama has done well in managing the crisis caused by Hurricane Sandy so far, while President George W. Bush botched the job of handling Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Obama and his Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have even drawn praise from Republicans such as Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Bob McDonnell of Virginia, both prominent supporters of Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney. Christie said, "The president has been all over this and he deserves great credit." McDonnell said the federal response was "incredibly fast and we're very grateful." He said Obama has been "direct and personal" in handing the crisis.
Obama got ahead of the curve from the start, cancelling campaign trips in order to stay in Washington to supervise the relief effort. He made sure the public knew he was in command by speaking to the nation directly as the storm intensified, and he and many surrogates have given frequent public updates about what was going on.
In contrast, President George W. Bush and his administration seemed slow off the mark in their response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The powerful storm hit the Gulf Coast and New Orleans while Bush was on vacation at his Texas ranch, and his aides initially didn't keep him fully informed about the devastation and misery Katrina was causing.
By the time he found out--in a report by a senior aide--he already looked out of touch. He belatedly cut short his vacation, and the White House released a photograph of the president looking out a window of Air Force One at the devastation below, which only made Bush appear more distant from the calamity.
Later, Bush did visit a disaster-relief site and praised Michael Brown, his FEMA director, with the memorable sentence, "Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job." The people of New Orleans, who had been waiting desperately for aid, had a different, and far more negative view. Brown resigned shortly thereafter.
The Bush administration also tangled with then-Louisiana Gov. Kathleeen Blanco over who was responsible for the debacle of failing to evacuate people or deliver relief supplies in a timely way--in stark contrast to Obama's good relationship today with New Jersey's Governor Christie and Virginia's McDonnell.
Aides admitted to me later that Bush never recovered his reputation as an effective crisis manager or a man of empathy after Katrina.
Plenty of things can still go wrong in the federal response to Sandy, but Obama plans to remain front and center in the relief efforts as Election Day appoaches. "The storm is not over yet," Obama said Tuesday afternoon on a visit to Red Cross headquarters in Washington. "We're going to continue to push as hard as we can" to help out.
You are still a dipshit Patrick... You idiot with about 5 socks...

It's the culture...

Was Barack Obama having sex with Reggie Love during Benghazi attack?
"After reading Lowry's article, my good friend Justine in California emailed me to ask whether I thought Obama was having sex with Reggie Love during the "missing hours" and if that's where he was. Justine was an actress and model in Los Angeles back in the late-1970s and ran in the same circles as friends of closeted gay men like Rock Hudson ... so her first instinct with Obama and Benghazi is that he and Reggie Love were getting at it and Obama didn't want to be disturbed.

Now your boy Bush could've prevented all of this, even prevented 9/11 but, he allowed both to happen. That's the man you called your leader/a true leader.
See I continue to bring up Bush because, there's no way possible you can criticize Obama if you support or supported Bush, yet you continue to show you ignorance on a daily basis!
You continue to bring up former President Bush because of Bush derangement syndrome. Just like the imposter in our White House.
Take one step backwards and explain to us all why your hero Slick Willie didn't take Osama out when he had several chances and he could have truely stopped the attack on the twin towers. Even the democrats said Osama was behind the attack right.
Please take note, former President Bush has been out of office for four and a half years. Time for you and O'bigears to stop the blame game and accept responsibility for what you low/no information voters and your false messiah have done to America.

"It Morning in America.." Ronald Reagan would most likely agree

In recent months Barack Obama has visited victims of the Oklahoma tornado, the Boston bombing and the Newtown school shooting, but his visit on Tuesday to beach communities hit by hurricane Sandy is about more than just consoling another group of families hit by America's run of tragedies.

The president arrives at a crucial moment in the economic recovery of the New Jersey shore, which welcomed 60 million visitors last summer but starts this season worried about how many will come back. It also comes at a potentially opportune moment for Obama and his host, New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

Christie has been busy re-opening beach resorts damaged by Sandy in time for the traditional Memorial Day start to the tourist season. But both he and the White House concede there is still work to be done before this storm-ravaged coast is fully back to normal.
"The recovery effort in the aftermath of Sandy is still ongoing and there are still a lot of people in these communities who are hurting and are still struggling to come back from the blow that that storm dealt to them," said White House spokesman Josh Earnest aboard Air Force One during the president's early trip to Oklahoma on Sunday.
"But the president made a promise, in the aftermath of that storm, that he would continue to focus on that recovery effort and that the federal government would continue to focus on that recovery effort long after the nation's attention, or at least the media's attention, had turned elsewhere. "
Christie broke a Guinness world record on Friday by cutting a 5.5-mile ceremonial ribbon that symbolically tied together some of the hardest-hit towns and the state has a $25m marketing campaign to highlight the shore's resurgence in time for the summer season.
But some beaches will not be open until mid-June and there are anecdotal reports this weekend of resorts further down the coast in Delaware, or as far north as the Hamptons, seeing a surge of visitors displaced by Sandy. Christie ranks the recovery of the state's famous boardwalks as an eight on a scale of 10 but concedes that in other parts of the state many homeowners are still rebuilding six months after the devastating superstorm struck. Overall, the storm caused $38bn in damages in the state, and harmed or wrecked 360,000 homes or apartment units.

Maybe, but the difference is that there was no reason to get involved in Libya.
You still don't get it.

We went along with the Libya revolt because there's a lot of oil in Libya. DUH

The Italian oil co., ENI which pretty much runs the oil business there, had to cut production during the revolt. This directly affected Europe and it was NATO that Obama finally went along with.

After Republiclowns criticized him as being 'weak' for not getting into Libya, they went on to criticize when he did agree to help.

We put in no troops, mainly flew support for French and British attack aircraft. We provided refueling and AWACS, fired Tomahawks from offshore, our typical NATO role.

Remember it was UN Resolution 1973 that authorized it.

I'll agree we shouldn't have intervened in Libya, but it sure as hell wasn't Obama alone on it. The Repubs were pushing him into it, calling him weak for not helping the rebels.

Want to see??

"Have you had any difficulty discerning Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney’s precise position on the US involvement in the NATO mission in Libya?
The one consistency has been criticism of President Obama.
But beyond that, he’s seemed a bit all over the Libyan map.

"Position 1: Obama was weak in not doing this sooner
On March 21, Romney told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt:”I support military action in Libya. I support our troops there and the mission that they’ve been given.”
Asked if the president waited too long to strike against Libya, Romney said:“There’s no question but that his inability to have a clear and convincing foreign policy made him delegate to the United Nations and the Arab League a decision about our involvement there. And I happen to have a very personal concern. I mean, 270 people were killed as a result of that tragedy over Lockerbie. We now know that that was ordered directly by Muammar Gaddafi. One of my colleagues at Bain & Co, and a friend, named Nicholas Bright, was killed in that flight. And the President had every piece of information he needed to be able to take action in America’s interest.”
Asked if the president appeared weak, Romney said,“I think one of the comments I’ve heard from individuals abroad is that in the past, America has been feared sometimes, has been respected, but today, that America is seen as being weak. We’re following the French into Libya. I appreciate the fact that others are participating in this effort, but I think we look to America to be the leader of the world.”"

Syria is a whole different thing. It will be a proxy war, not a direct involvement. There is no UN talk of resolutions, they don't know what to do. the Russians and Chinese would not stand by if we intervene.

But most of all, there's no large oilfields in Syria. THe west can supply the rebels with weapons, the Russians will back Assad.

If you're a student of history, you'll see the parallels to the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's. A proxy war that led to a World War.

History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

Obama will not put US forces into Syria. Period. That goes for Aircraft, as well.

You're right about McCain. A dangerous old fool. This last stunt reminded me of his suspending his campaign to save the economy.

It's sad to see the clown he's become. There was a time........
