Barack Obama, our next President

Yeah, boy, the banks intentionally created bad loans so that they could buy them up, become insolvent, and need a government bailout.

Makes lots of sense, to idiots like you, boy.

Never has any president been so absent in the middle of so many uncertainties.

He got lucky going abroad so he wouldn't have to play hide and seek here for a while.

But where has this president been and why hasn't he been talking to us?

He just left us hanging in the wind. Did he retire before he left and not tell anyone?

Get over it, little boy/girl. Considering the damage you on the left are doing to the country, I don't think calling you a retard is unfair, or inaccurate.
Well, certainly no one would ever accuse you of taking the high ground for winning an argument.

That's your opinion son.

No one forced banks to change their lending requirements. They did that on their own.

Let's just stick to what Harry Reid said.

"Barack Obama is light-skinned enough and doesn't talk in a negro dialect unless he wants to."

Or even Joe Biden.

"Barack Obama is the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."

Good thing he was the "first mainstream" African-American who was "clean".

Yep, no subtle racism in your party.

BS

Obama won the Black Belt primaries, mostly states where Democrats don't win the general election.

Then he creamed Hillary in caucus states by packing the meetings with threatening elements of society.

Then he took advantage of a nominating process that was stacked to give preference to blacks.

So, Obama won the nomination even though Hillary won most of the primaries.

And Obama will sabotage Hillary in the same manner in 2016.

Might as well bend over for the Obama surrogate candidate (TBD).

I find it interesting that both the prosecution and the defense in the Martin/Zimmerman trial opted for an all female jury. Guess both sides decided they needed jurors who might be swayed by emotion.

Republican and Democratic leaders waged a blame game Thursday after GOP-backed cuts to food stamps unexpectedly derailed a trillion-dollar piece of legislation known as the farm bill.

The bill's stunning failure sets back for a second year progress on the country's agricultural policies and gives House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) a fresh black eye after his chamber failed to move a farm bill last year. The Senate has passed its version twice, with large majorities.

The contentious measure would have cut the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program by $20.5 billion, or roughly $2 billion per year -- depriving 2 million Americans of food assistance -- and a sufficient number of Democrats were apparently ready to approve it.

But this week Republicans added amendments to let states drug-test SNAP program beneficiaries and set up additional work requirements that anti-hunger advocates and Democrats warned would give states incentives to boot even more people from the food-stamp rolls.

The latter amendment, from Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.), became a sticking point. While Democrats said the measure would essentially pay states to reduce enrollment, Republicans touted the supposed success of a similar policy in the 1996 "welfare reform" law, which instituted work requirements in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.

"We cannot continue to deny able-bodied people the dignity of work," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.). "There seems to be a belief in the nanny state that there's something wrong with requiring abled-bodied people to work. That's what this amendment does."

The idea was to make more SNAP beneficiaries sign up for training programs on pain of losing benefits. But Democrats noted there was no funding for training, and that it included parents of young children and even many disabled people. Nor did it place any restrictions on how states could use the money they saved, allowing them to shift it away from employment programs.

Republicans were quick to blame Democrats for the farm bill's failure, with multiple senior aides saying that Democrats had promised to deliver at least 40 votes to get the measure over the line. Democrats didn't dispute that there was an initial deal, but the top Democrat on the Agriculture Committee warned before the vote that many saw the Southerland amendment as a deal-breaker.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) echoed the sentiment later, rather pointedly casting aspersions on Boehner's ability to manage his fractious, tea party-divided caucus.

"It's always interesting to me when people blame other people for their own failures," Pelosi said. "It's silly, it's sad, it's juvenile, it's unprofessional, it's amateur hour."

The measure failed 195 to 234, with 62 Republicans voting against it. Pelosi noted that nearly all of the GOP opponents -- 58 of them -- voted for Southerland's amendment.

"I just can't get over the fact that 58 republicans voted for an amendment that would sink the bill," Pelosi said. "It's a stunning thing. Why would you give people an amendment that's going to kill your bill, and then go blame it on somebody else?"

Racism seems everywhere including the resignation of GOP type today,
-
An Illinois Republican official resigned Thursday, after writing a vicious attack on a biracial, female congressional candidate–calling her the “love child” of the Democratic National Committee, destined to work for “some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.”

The target was Erika Harold, a former Miss America and Harvard Law graduate who is seeking the Republican nomination for the 13th congressional district in central Illinois.

Montgomery County GOP Chairman Jim Allen referred to Harold as “miss queen,” and said that she was “being used like a street walker,” whose “pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS.” Allen sent the email to the conservative website Republican News Watch, which posted the text in full and called it a “racist rant.”

Republicans have problems with racism
