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

Clinton’s Folly

It’s not the least bit surprising, but Bill Clinton wants the U.S. to meddle in Syria.

....Clinton also said that Obama should ignore public opinion on Syria.

....It goes without saying that no one should make policy solely or primarily based on what polls happen to say, but it would be even more foolish to put the U.S. on a path towards gradual escalation in Syria when it is obvious that the public has no appetite for a new conflict or more foreign commitments. Indeed, only a fool would embark on a policy that he knows has little or no political support. One of the worst things that a president could do is commit the U.S. to a foreign conflict with unpopular, ineffective half-measures, such as arming a fragmented insurgency, and then be forced to increase the U.S. role in the conflict for fear of appearing to “lose.” That is what Clinton wants Obama to do, and unless Obama is a fool he should ignore this advice.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) told a conservative conference on Friday that comprehensive immigration reform could be turn around a trend of lower birth rates in the U.S. because “immigrants are more fertile.”

“Demography is destiny,” Bush explained to the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference.“We’re going to have fewer workers taking care of a larger number of people that the country has a social contract with to be able to allow them to retire with dignity and purpose. We cannot do that with the fertility rates that we have in our country. We’re below break-even today.”

“The one way that we can rebuild the demographic pyramid is to fix a broken immigration system to allow for people to come, to learn English, to play by our rules, to embrace our values and to pursue their dreams in our country with a vengeance, to create more opportunities for all of us,” he continued.“This is a conservative idea.”

You are a totally radicalized Progressive who wants to violate the constitutional rights of US citizens and allow the POTUS be judge and jury?
But it's o.k for police to play judge & jury right? Doesn't matter to you because, it's not your people in your community being shot by cops everyday. Explain your love for the constitution over true justice to the families of the victims of those terrorist "terror attacks." This ain't no normal crime & should be handled in a normal manor. I bet the victims of the Boston bombings wish the president assassinated that American citizen & his foreign realized territory brother. Like I said,"they chose sides with terrorist, that makes then terrorist!" You're radicalized in your beliefs & fear you might be targeted. Even when that asshole Bush was in office, no democrat took things as far as you republicans. You also have committed treason & declared war on &, conspired on the downfall of Americas president. The mine in the sand was drawn & you crossed it. Don't be scared now!

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans over the last 20 years. Immigrants are more fertile. And they love families and they have more intact families and they bring a younger population.”

Explain how Larry Flynt is against womens rights; how is he a misogynist?
Tell us about the 4 U.S. citizens who were killed by drones and why you defend them? Here's one of them: Anwar Al-Awlaki, go read about him and tell us why he should not have been targeted.
You rightwingers can't make up your minds if you are on the side of the terrorists or your own country. You're a traitor, just like all the teapartyers. Your motivation and opinions are solely based upon racism and hatred of the Democratic President.
You're likely even defending that thief and traitor Snowden as well, stupid idiot. Perhaps you should go live in China or Russia as well.
You're dumber than a rock.
Temper, temper.

You screw up and use the misogynist Flynt as a political authority.
No one made you do that.

Damn the Constitution and let Holder play judge and jury is your logic?

Why are you mumbling about Snowden for? Just thought you would throw him for good measure or are you one of the loonies like Dave who wants him to be DRONED?

The rest was throwing the kitchen sink as you are without a logical argument.

Your defense is as inarticulate and irrational as your original posts.

They can't let the conflict extend beyond the borders.

But, I would think a government friendlier to the US and by extension, to israel, can bring more stability to the region.

israel's problem is they can't fight a limited war. If something starts with one, it will quickly find itself fighting all.

Not really.

No comparison in some aspects because-

Not having to flip pages, being able to hold a rigid object in one hand that allows for the function of being able to adjust font size with the other hand are real positives too!

speaking of losing....
Rick Santorum said Thursday that Republicans squandered an opportunity to really exploit an out-of-context quote from President Barack Obama that took on a life of its own in last year's campaign.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tried desperately last year to make hay out of a portion of an Obama stump speech in which he said, "if you've got a business, you didn't build that." The full context of the speech clearly shows that Obama wasn't really suggesting what Romney's campaign claimed, but Republicans seized the line and even made it the theme of the opening night of the party's national convention.
But that's where Romney and the GOP blew it, Santorum said. Instead of trotting out business owners at the convention, the former Pennsylvania senator argued, the party should have featured rank-and-file workers.
“One after another, they talked about the business they had built. But not a single—not a single —factory worker went out there,” Santorum said at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, as quoted by Politico.“Not a single janitor, waitress or person who worked in that company! We didn’t care about them. You know what? They built that company too! And we should have had them on that stage.”
A poll conducted in the late stages of the 2012 campaign showed that the GOP's emphasis on "you didn't build that" was a dud.
