Barack Obama, our next President

None of the current crop of GOP clowns has any shot at beating Hillary.
Hillary has no chance for the Democrat nomination.

Perhaps an independent Clinton-Bloomberg ticket.

Where do you think all the Obama fundraising money is going?

According to Chris Matthews, a good comparison to TV "icon" Tony Soprano is Bill Clinton.

So, Clinton is a ruthless murdering thug with a major anxiety disorder?

Really Matthews?

Anytime you see a study stereotyping either side it is always flawed.
Playing with numbers and methods is as old as the hills. From Gambling Houses and Circuses to political causes, this stuff is nothing new. What is new in this regard are the fresh faces who fall for it.

I think Samuel Clemens made commentary on it, too.

Yes

It is unfortunate that farm policy gets confused with welfare (food stamps).

Both subjects deserve independent review,

Obama's Rotten Road Trip

First he mistook Britain’s chancellor of the exchequer for a soul singer, calling him Jeffrey Osborne instead of George. Then he explained to an audience in sectarian Belfast that, in the interests of religious harmony, Catholics ought not to have their own schools. Finally, sweating in the hot sun and without his TelePrompTer, he stumbled through a nearly incoherent speech at the Brandenburg Gate that almost nobody attended.

Throw in the cold shoulders from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russia President Vladimir Putin, the ridicule of the British press (“just another lame duck”) and the disappointment of the German media which had expected another walking-on-water moment like candidate Obama’s 2008 speech at the Victory Column, and it was not a successful foreign adventure for President Obama.

The president and Hillary lying about four dead Americans before an election and the president setting the climate for the IRS going after his political enemies is not fantasy.
We wouldn't even be talking about it if Romney had won. So that isn't fantasy either.
So we'll go ahead and talk about your fantasies of Obama on this thread for the time being.
True. When the event took place under Romney, non cons would politely listen and accept his word.

"Numerous allegations have been made on the Internet and in consumer magazines purporting neurotoxic effects of aspartame leading to neurological or psychiatric symptoms such as seizures, headaches, and mood changes. Review of the biochemistry of aspartame has found no evidence that the doses consumed would plausibly lead to neurotoxic effects"

Be careful what you let yourself believe.
I have facts-and aspartame was nothing but bad science,but anyone is free to use it. It was banned by the FDA twice.
It all starts in the mid 1960&#8242;s with a company called G.D. Searle. One of their chemists accidentally creates aspartame while trying to create a cure for stomach ulcers. Searle decides to put aspartame through a testing process which eventually leads to its approval by the FDA. Not long after, serious health effects begin to arise and G.D. Searle comes under fire for their testing practices. It is revealed that the testing process of Aspartame was among the worst the investigators had ever seen and that in fact the product was unsafe for use. Aspartame triggers the first criminal investigation of a manufacturer put into place by the FDA in 1977. By 1980 the FDA bans aspartame from use after having 3 independent scientists study the sweetener. It was determined that one main health effects was that it had a high chance of inducing brain tumors. At this point it was clear that aspartame was not fit to be used in foods and banned is where it stayed, but not for long.

Early in 1981 Searle Chairman Donald Rumsfeld (who is a former Secretary of Defense.. surprise surprise) vowed to “call in his markers,” to get it approved. January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, Searle took the steps to re-apply aspartame’s approval for use by the FDA. Ronald Reagans’ new FDA commissioner Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision. It did not take long for the panel to decide 3-2 in favor of maintaining the ban of aspartame. Hull then decided to appoint a 6th member to the board, which created a tie in the voting, 3-3. Hull then decided to personally break the tie and approve aspartame for use. Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller. Burstone-Marstella is the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time he has never spoken publicly about aspartame.
