Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Otherwise, aren't you making up the US Constitution?
The president does NOT have the power to wage war/conflict.

The U.S. Congress DOES. Resolution H.J. Res. 114 authorized President Bush to use the Armed Forces of the United States against Iraq.

Just like Congress authorized Clinton to send troops to Bosnia.
Congress also authorized Clinton, under the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, to drop bombs on Iraq for four days.

That's how it works. Like it or not.

Okay, your nonsense has hit the point and laugh stage.

Axelrod and other people on the LEFT are asking for the resignation of HOLDER. Holder's DoJ are neck deep in scandals and any more attempts by him to target alleged enemies of the Obama admin will only add to the fire.

Does that apply to presidents who call our servicemen "corpse-men", repeatedly? I wouldn't blame someone for giving Obama a pass on this one, after all, there are far more serious flaws in his character than just the disrespect and cavalier indifference he pays to "his" men - our defenders. Now I see where he had another bout of amnesia and "forgot" to return a salute to a Marine charged with protecting him...what an a**hole.
This from a supporter of a man who lied to invade a country that killed over 4000 of our soldiers.

The mere idea that you have a GD fit about a salute, an umbrella, or a mispronounced word while supporting a party that sent so many to die just proves what a GD idiot you are.

Barack Obama has done so much for our soldiers & their families that you, your pathetic party, or George W Bush EVER did.

My God, start a war about oil & send soldiers to it without body armor or properly armored vehicles - that is respect for our troops?

Just another doze at the office for union’s ‘scarf-&-snore’ prez
By RICH CALDER
Last Updated: 11:51 AM, May 28, 2013
Posted: 1:31 AM, May 28, 2013
Union fat cat Mark Rosenthal spends more time sleeping at his desk than organizing labor, a series of damning photos reveals.
The 400-pound president of Local 983 of District Council 37 — the city’s largest blue-collar municipal-workers union — often downs a huge meal, then drops into dreamland in the early afternoon, members of the union’s executive board told The Post.
IT'S A DREAM JOB: Mark Rosenthal, who pulls in $156,000 a year as head of Local 983 of District Council 37, nods off at his desk during one of a series of postlunch naps that have outraged members of the union’s executive board.
“He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a cup of soda on the table and the straw in it,” said Marvin Robbins, a union vice president.
“Then he wakes up, looks at his watch and says,‘I have to get out before the traffic gets bad.’ He’s usually out by 4 p.m. after being at the office two hours.”
Rosenthal is a former Parks Department employee who rose to power campaigning to rid the union of corruption in the late 1990s.
He last made embarrassing headlines in 2009, when he inspired a City Council bill requiring jumbo-size ambulances for morbidly obese patients after he had a stroke at City Hall.
Since then, he hasn’t been making much of an effort to give the city’s ambulances a break and slim down. Union officials say he racks up $1,400 in monthly food bills on the union dime.
Much of the 5-foot-7, 400-plus-pound Rosenthal’s food tabs are for catered union events and meals he writes off as “union business,” board members claim.
They say he significantly overorders at eateries like Dallas BBQ, the Stage Door Deli and Pine Restaurant in The Bronx, a hangout for local politicians, and takes the extra food back to his Bronxdale apartment.
“He’s always walking off with a doggie bag or extra boxes of food,” said another executive board member.
Rosenthal, who earns $156,000 annually, yesterday denied being a free spender— and insisted he works “12-to-14-hour days.”
He says the allegations are “part of a smear campaign” by a faction trying to get another Local 983 vice president, Joseph Puleo, elected president in a June 5 showdown.
He said it’s normal for executives to take “power naps.”
He also blamed his meetings with the sandman on the effects of pain medication he takes for backaches he has suffered since he fell through a chair at a McDonald’s last year.
“The chair broke because I’m big,” Rosenthal said.
“I’m 60 years old, so if I eat during my lunch hour and take a little medication, can’t I close my eyes?” he said outside his apartment complex.“Is it so outrageous?”
Rosenthal is also under fire from the union’s executive board for allowing lawyer Arthur Schwartz to allegedly rack up an average of $12,000 a month in union legal fees for years despite being on a $5,500 monthly retainer, board members said.
But Schwartz claims he has submitted only one monthly bill over $10,000 in 15 years representing the union and averages about $7,000 per month in fees.
he is the typical liberal democrat. Everyone should see the picture of who is representing thousands of people.

Hey, Yeah, there was no formal "declaration of war" by Congress under Johnson in the Vietnam War either.

Russia announces they are sending anti-aircraft missiles to Assad's government. They state their reason for doing so is to prevent intervention.

When liberals have no valid retort for opposing statements to their views, they fire the accusation of racism. It usually helps deflect the attention away from the fact that they have no facts.

Congress authorized Clinton to send troops to Bosnia.

Congress authorized Clinton, under the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, to drop bombs on Iraq for four days.

Congress authorized Johnson to use military force in Vietnam under the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.

So if the Iraq War was unconstitutional, so were all conflicts and wars since WWII - all of them authorized by Congress.

Liberals just like to play the "double standard card" when it suits their bias.

Yes I'm sure all those thousands of soldiers waiting and waiting and waiting for their disability claims to go through would be so happy to stand in the line of "supporters" for just how much Obama and his administration do for them. Oh, and don't forget all those soldiers that were vics of the "work place violence" at Fort Hood. I bet they are some of Obama's biggest supporters. Yeah, that's the ticket!!!

"Additional scrutiny of conservative organizations’ activities by the IRS did not solely originate in the agency’s Cincinnati office, with requests for information coming from other offices and often bearing the signatures of higher-ups at the agency, according to attorneys representing some of the targeted groups. At least one letter requesting information about one of the groups bears the signature of Lois Lerner, the suspended director of the IRS Exempt Organizations department in Washington."

"Among the letters were several that bore return IRS addresses other than Cincinnati, including “Department of the Treasury / Internal Revenue Service / Washington, D.C.,” and the signatures of IRS officials higher up the chain. Two letters with ”Department of the Treasury / Internal Revenue Service / Washington, D.C.” letterhead were signed by “Tax Law Specialist(s)” from Exempt Organizations Technical Group 1 and Technical Group 2. Lerner’s signature, which appeared to be a stamp rather than an actual signature, appeared on a letter requesting additional information from the Ohio Liberty Council Corp."

"Cleta Mitchell, another attorney representing conservative groups that allege they were targeted, said an IRS agent in Cincinnati told her a “task force” IRS office in Washington, D.C., was making the decisions about the processing of applications, and that she subsequently dealt with IRS representatives there.

Do you really think lying about the imagined iniquities of a former president has any bearing on the gross incompetence of this one? Not hardly. Besides, give the dandy a little more time, he's stirring a pot that'll make Iraq look like a weekend at the beach.

President Obama said the government would be there for the “folks in Monroe, Oklahoma after the devastation of last week” during his address on the Jersey Shore Tuesday afternoon, making him the second Democrat Tuesday to call Moore, the city crushed by a tornado May 20, by the same incorrect name.
