Barack Obama, our next President

I take it from your response that you think Bush was a great president, so great that a very common propaganda line from the Democrats is "Bush did it, too."
What you should do is actually read the Patriot Act to learn that what is happening now could not possibly have legally happened under the Patriot Act. That is why a new law had to be written. The Patriot Act would not have permitted what is happening now.
When we claim Bush did it too, it isn't to make the actions OK; it is to make fun of you Tea Party morons who never gave a sh*t when Bush did it.

Bush spies on Americans - "Its to keep us safe"
Obama spies on Americans: "OMG OMG OMG"

You people are dumber than sh*t.

SELL YOUR SOUL FOR TRICKS Many of the same social problems highlighted in a landmark 1965 study on black family structure have only worsened over the last 48 years and are now causing similar hardship for white and Hispanic families.
That’s a major finding of a new report by the Urban Institute, a liberal think tank, which re-examines the circumstances of black families nearly five decades after former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan authored the controversial report,“The Negro Family: The Case for National Action.”
Moynihan was an assistant secretary in the Department of Labor in the 1960s when his report cited the breakdown of the nuclear family as the main cause of problems in the black community.
The so-called Moynihan Report looked at societal disparities between white and black families and the need for government action to address them. It focused on high rates of unemployment, crime, poverty, unwed parenting and other social ills that formed a “tangle of pathologies” that steered many black families into a continuing cycle of poor education, limited job prospects and dysfunctional long-term poverty.
The report argued that the rise of female-headed black households diminished the authority of black men within their families, leaving them unable to serve as responsible fathers and providers, partly because of their limited job prospects.
Many African-American leaders criticized the report at the time, saying it was ripe with stereotypes and played down the effects of institutional discrimination and racism. Others said the report “blamed the victim” for the causes and consequences of poverty.
While African-Americans have made substantial progress in high school graduation rates, college enrollment, income and home ownership rates since the 1960s, vast disparities still remain in comparison to whites on a multitude of social measures, said Gregory Acs, director of the Urban Institute’s Income and Benefits Policy Center.
And while many social problems are still disproportionately centered in the African-American community, they have also increased in the larger non-black society.

A trio of Republicans in the so-called Gang of Eight huddled with leading figures at Fox News Channel on the bipartisan effort in the Senate to reform the nation's immigration system, according to a piece published in this week's issue of The New Yorker.
The story, written by Ryan Lizza, indicated that Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had discussions with "top hosts" at the conservative cable news network, including Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto, all of whom are " now relatively sympathetic to the Gang’s proposed bill." It also quotes McCain as saying that News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch and Fox News chairman Roger Ailes are big advocates of immigration reform.

Consider that in the early 1960s, about 20 percent of black children and just 2 to 3 percent of white children were born to unmarried mothers, while the rate of unwed Hispanic births was somewhere in between.
By 2009, nearly 75 percent of black births, 53 percent of Hispanic births and 29 percent of white births were outside of marriage, according to the report.
A decline in marriage rates has followed the same path. In 1960, more than half of all black women were married, along with more than 66 percent of Hispanic and white women. By 2010, just 25 percent of black women, 40 percent of Hispanic women and half of white women were married.
“That the decline of traditional families occurred across racial and ethnic groups indicates that factors driving the decline do not lie solely within the black community, but in the larger social and economic context,” the report finds.
Acs said that the Moynihan report’s main conclusion about the importance of traditional families has been vindicated by research that shows children from two-parent families typically fare better educationally, financially and emotionally.
“Family structure is important,” he said.“Fathers do matter.”
To improve prospects for struggling black families, the report calls for reducing structural barriers to black economic progress, enhancing the incentives for working in the mainstream economy and improving family dynamics.

How about this, dufus:
That video got a grand total of 17 hits from around the entire world before Obama's lies began to foul the air around the White House.
More importantly, the White House watched Al Qaeda kill the Americans in Benghazi on the real-time video feed and knew there was never any spontaneous demonstration. The Obama lie was preplanned.
Now, just why do you think the White House would have a plan to lie about an Al Qaeda attack before it happened?
Do you think that is connected with there being Wahhabist terrorists in the White House every day?
You lie.

The video was released in Arabic & inked to on Arabic sites prior to the 9-11 Middle Eastern cities erupting in demonstrations.

When the f*ck will you ever quit lying about this. It is fact. Not subject to change for your dumbass Tea Party crap.

*** Just in ***

Obama orders mob of illegals to storm home of Kansas Secretary of State, Kobach to terrorize his family.

Hitler had Gus brown shirt, Obama has his zombie Liberals. How would it feel if it were you the one being terrorized?

Liberals are hate-mongers.

Instead of talk, vote or dialog, Liberals do what they do best: terrorize opponents.

Obama got Kobech's address from his terroris database on the Americans he hate.

That is why we Conservatives have guns, to defend ourselves from idiot Liberals.

SOUNDS LIKE BUSH WIth Scandals Raging At Home, Obama (Conveniently) Discovers Chemical Weapons Use in Syria,Barely a week after President Obama announced the ascendance of the left-neocon, humanitarian interventionist cultists Susan Rice and Samantha Power to the top of his foreign policy team, and in a time of choking scandal, alas a light at the end of the tunnel has appeared for the Obama regime: his old friend war!

The entirety of the US corporate media is breathlessly -- and, predictably, in lockstep -- amplifying the Obama administration's sudden amazingly convenient discovery that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons after all!

Just a few weeks ago the US Intelligence Community did not believe claims that the Syrian government used chemicals, then, after scolded by the Israelis they changed their tune to a very qualified "maybe." Now, with no formal investigation at all and no word on the chain of evidence or its source, we are told with absolute certainty that the Assad government has used the weapons. And they can't tell us because it is secret! Just like magic these things happen when needed!

And who has come forward to announce this breaking news discovery? Obama's rising national security council staff star Ben Rhodes, who,

"...earned a master's degree in fiction-writing from New York University just a few years ago . He did not have a degree in government, diplomacy, national security; nor has he served in the CIA, or the military. He was toiling away not that long ago on a novel called 'The Oasis of Love" about a mega church in Houston, a dog track, and a failed romance."

Rhodes is known as "the man behind the Benghazi cover-up" for his alleged role in altering the White House talking points and is suspected by some insiders to be the author of Obama's "red line" language threatening Syria.

Us old Democrats sure are having fun. One of my fellow Democrats with a large belly was doing a sales job presentation and at the beginning, he said he would move along quickly as none of us were slow southerners, as if southerners were all dumb rednecks.
He then proceeded to make us sit there at the beginning of his demonstration as he forgot what to enter and didn't write down anything to prepare. We sat there for about 10 minutes waiting for this smart northern liberal.
Is this a feeble attempt at humor or a cry for help from a mentally ill moron?

LOL, I just noticed that the post you responded to from Death he states he is talking about Iraq so you are wrong.

Just below your post is a Death post I responded to where he than claims he is not talking about Iraq so I am wrong. This claim came to me after in a earlier post he claimed he WASN'T talking about Libya.

Let's just cut to the chase DEATH obviously doesn't know what he is talking about.

The information that first came out described him as a magistrate judge. Apparently, this was incorrect.
But since that's been cleared up...
Why did Holder go "judge shopping" to illegally confiscate a journalist's emails and phone records?
Why did Judge Lamberth overturn the first two judges' refusal to give Holder permission to break the law?
These are two indisputable facts. Got answers?
It's not "judge shopping" you nitwit it called the judicial appeals process. When a plaintiff, in this case the DOJ, believes that a lower court was in error in their ruling then it presents its case to the next higher level. That's what the plaintiffs in the Prop. 8 did when a lower court ruled against the and what the Republicans did when DOMA was similarly ruled unconstitutional.
Why did Judge Lamberth overturn the previous rulings? Because they were, in his judgment , in error stupid! You may not like the ruling but hell I didn't like the decision in Citizen's United either, but it is what it is.
The DOJ has the responsibility to investigate leaks that harm national security. In this case Rosen revealed the existence of CIA sources inside of North Korea. This could jeopardize the lives of these sources and affect our ability to get intelligence concerning that country's nuclear program.
At any rate a legal warrant was obtained and therefore no laws were broken.
But you've just got your panties in a twist because it was a Fox reporter that was being investigated.

so don't tell me you're now an opponent of leap of faith reasoning? or is it going to be like all of this hypocrisy displayed by the right wing over all of the Bush programs that were fine as long as it was a Republican who was responsible?

i see no reason why you can't accept leap of faith reasoning beyond the kind that FOX shoves at you winguts. just like Bush and Obama: if you can do it, i should be able to do it better.
