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

She can never get her "facts" straight. Honestly, stating that the "international community was with Bush" is about the most ignorant statement someone can make.
In 2003, of the 15 member nations of the United Nations Security Council, only three other than the United States supported an invasion of Iraq....Britain, Spain, and Bulgaria. Three!!!
"I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN Charter. From our point of view, from the charter point of view, it (the U.S. invasion of Iraq) was illegal".(2004, Secretary-General of the United Nations.)
Yet, some think Bush was a "genius" and supported by the international community. Geez.
What I don't understand is how these people seem to be tolerant of Assad's use of chemicl weapons against his people while they were appalled when Saddam did the same thing.
As you often say, this is a comedy channel.
lol! These people like to rewrite history to make their case.

Talk about being clueless!

Syria is interesting. These same people who condemn Russia are now it's biggest supporters in the US.

They simply can't make up their minds where they stand from day to day. It's hysterical to watch!

If Bush was so smart, how come he didn't invade Wahhbistan?

You really are fullofshit.
How about you go back to where I shoved the truth up your ass and showed you quotes from the Director of OFHEO in 2003 describing how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were keeping fraudulent books to hide the CRA disaster.
It was known as early as 2003 it was a disaster.
How about you look at that 1999 New York Times article that predicts the disaster after Bill Clinton used the White House to coerce the mortgage underwriters.
How about telling us about the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats.

You really aren't too bright are you? According to testimony before the Senate committee, U.S. citizens are not being subjected to "unresonable search and seizures". Papers and effects are not accessed without a warrant and the information being collected under the Fisa Amendments Act does not disclose the identity of a person or their location without a valid search warrant being first obtained.
If you would actually listen to the testimony on Capitol Hill instead of parroting rightwing propaganda, you might actually learn a thing or two.
The general counsel for the intelligence community said the NSA cannot target phone conversations between callers inside the U.S.— even if one of those callers was someone they were targeted for surveillance when outside the country.
"The director of national intelligence’s legal chief, Robert S. Litt, said that if the NSA finds it has accidentally gathered a phone call by a target who had traveled into the U.S. without their knowledge, they have to "purge" that from their system. The same goes for an accidental collection of any conversation because of an error.
Litt said those incidents are then reported to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which "pushes back" and asks how it happened, and what the NSA is doing to fix the problem so it doesn’t happen again."
Obama: "...their phone calls aren’t being listened into; their text messages aren’t being monitored, their emails are not being read by some big brother somewhere."
The only people who should be concerned are those with terrorists ties and radicals with allegiance to a foreign country and expressed anti-American sentiments.
NSA whistleblowers are saying something different.

I really don't care if the NSA wants to data mine everyone's phone numbers if they can narrow down who the bad guys are.

But another NSA whistleblower said all anyone has to do is ask to listen in on anyone's conversation to do so.

It's the fact no one trusts anyone anymore to do the right thing that leaves doubts in a lot of people's minds. Even mine.

The fact is, with the comment "court ordered" on her record, she cannot receive reciprocity from Illinois if whe wanted to practice law in any other state. In short, the Supreme Court of Illinois chose the wording to prevent her from just moving to some other state and start scamming insurance companies there.
The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as “voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law.”
It further states that Michelle license is “on court ordered inactive status.”
You can see an actual photograph of the document on this website.
http://www.wnd.com/2009/08/105998/
Michelle is on a court-ordered inactive status.
Investigations into why the Supreme Court of Illinois ordered Michelle Obama to be on inactive status lead to an insurance fraud case.
Michelle Obama was scamming insurance companies.
Yet another example of how easily you right wing morons are duped by phony propaganda. The notation "court ordered inactive status" is NOT, as commonly misinterpreted, an indication of any wrongdoing. That terminology was used simply because prior to the end of 1999, the Illinois ARDC rules required "a proceeding in the Court for any voluntary transfer to inactive status.

BREAKING GOOD NEWS!"After more than a decade of war in Afghanistan, and nearly three years of sputtering and unsuccessful attempts at talks, the United States will open formal negotiations with the Taliban this week aimed at ending insurgent attacks, officials said Tuesday.
The new dialogue, with a Taliban delegation that U.S. officials said has been authorized by Taliban leader Mohammed Omar, will begin Thursday in Doha, the Qatari capital. The United States will be represented by senior State Department and White House officials. " ... "The Obama administration has long sought to put a negotiating process in place before the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Afghanistan at the end of 2014." http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-...
Dumbass, Obama surrendered in 2009 when he ordered all combat in the mountain region end and ordered all US forces to retreat to the population centers, then he promised "the Taliban will be part of the future government of Afghanistan."
The good news is the war is ending... well, us fighting back is ending. The Arabs still intend to kill Americnas. Just ask any jihadist, like the ones Morsi gathered together in a room and they thought the mike wasn't on.
The bad news is because Obama surrendered.

However, don't forget Obama has given every Wahhabist terrorist in Saudi Arabia "special traveller" status to enter the United States without any scrutiny.
The Arabs are still at war with us. An idiot can tell you they are taking advantage of Obama throwing the door wide open to them to come here and kill Americans.

Eight months into President George W. Bush's second term, the Washington Post wrote that Bush's frequent trips to his Texas ranch symbolized "a lackadaisical approach to the world's most important day job" and gleefully noted that Bush was intent on setting the record for being on "vacation"--or away from Washington, D.C.--for the most number of days of any president.

But when President Barack Obama vacations in Hawaii, sets up a fantasy golf vacation for himself with Butch Harmon and Tiger Woods, averages more than a vacation a month in 2013 while purporting to be a man of the people and demanding the rich pay their fair share, and playing sequester politics by shutting down White House tours, the mainstream media is silent.

And while Bush spent more time outside of Washington than Obama, it is also worth nothing that nearly all of Bush's vacations were trips back to his Texas ranch or family vacation homes in Maine.

The Post, in 2005, conceded that Bush's vacations--unlike Obama's--were not lavish and he did not "make time for fun."

"Bush rarely takes the type of vacation one would consider exotic -- or, to some, even appealing," the Post wrote. "His notion of relaxation is chopping cedar on his ranch or mountain biking through rough terrain, all in 100-degree-plus temperatures in dusty Texas where crickets are known to roast on the summer pavement. He seems to relish the idea of exposing aides and reporters to the hothouse environment."

Obama, on the other hand, has traveled to Hawaii every winter. The Obama daughters are vacationing at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas this week with a full Secret Service detail, as Breitbart News reported, even as the White House claimed they could not afford to pay Secret Service agents to continue the popular White House tours for other students who are on their spring vacations in Washington, D.C.

The Obamas have gone to Martha's Vineyard multiple times while the country was in recession and Americans were struggling to find jobs. Michelle Obama has taken a whirlwind trip to Spain and a ski trip to Aspen.

Obama took 13 vacations in his first term, which spanned all or part of 83 days. But they have been much more lavish than Bush's. His annual vacations to Hawaii alone have cost taxpayers at least $20 million during his first term. In 2011 alone, Michelle Obama may have cost taxpayers $10 million on vacations herself. Obama's fantasy golf outing this year cost local law enforcement in Florida a reported $78, 205.

Bush was content to work from home during his vacations. And for doing so, the mainstream media tagged him as lazy and disinterested. The Obamas gallivant around, making plenty of "time for fun," and the mainstream media does not call them out for wasting taxpayer dollars or even for the terrible "optics."
