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

Heard Boehner yesterday. The Republican's plans for the economy: Lower taxes, cut spending, and Drill, baby, drill.
Same old crap from the same Republicans in Congress that spent like crazy under Bush.
"Bush". You're obstinance is pathetic.

How can higher taxes, less disposable income, all-encompassing bureaucratic intrusion, and dependence on foreign oil, possibly invigorate an economy? It's ridiculous on it's face and impossible under any circumstances.

Abortion is only legal under certain circumstances. Late term abortions are only legal with dangerous health issues for the woman.
Your lie is the word most.
Using your own logic: In that poll, 47% identify themselves as pro-Life. So, according to you, that means 53% think abortion should be legal in most or all circumstances..
Yu took a poll & added your own erroneous assumptions.
No, the words used in the poll data was "limited circumstances" that does not apply 'most'.

It means legal in limited circumstances or illegal in most.

So it seems a lot better no matter what you claim.
Democrats always looking to interfere in other people's business and bog the US down in a quagmire where we have no interests.

Assad and Putin will crush Obama's terrorist buddies and the US will have created an enemy for no reason.

This is Obama's war for his Islamist brothers, not America's.

America hates Islamic terrorists and wants them eliminated.

Hopefully the Syrians will understand the difference.

Fox News Ratings: Fanning The Flames Of Scandal Pays Off – Sort Of
....However, it is inescapable that Fox’s obsession with hyperbolic attacks on President Obama and his administration is not resonating with younger viewers. Fox is repeating the mistakes they committed last year by harping on wild conspiracies, extreme rightist rhetoric, and fantastical allegations for which they have no support. That’s the sort of behavior that turned them into a laughing stock and produced an audience that was stunned when Republicans cratered at the ballot box. The same sort of shock is going to strike Fox viewers when these myriad scandals all peter out. Their gullible audience will once again wonder how Fox could have assured them that the Obama administration was near collapse, but nothing close to that takes place. If there is one constant that Fox is careful to maintain, it is their determination to mislead their flock by feeding them the fringe-flavored chum they crave.
The near future will likely be more of the same barring any unforeseen circumstances. There are no predictable events on the horizon (i.e. elections) that are likely to stir the pot. Although the currently simmering pseudo-scandals may still have a little heat in them, and the Supreme Court will be dropping some decisions this summer. Other than that, stay tuned to be underwhelmed, unless you’re Fox viewer. In which case — be afraid, be very afraid.

It doesn't,but drilling for more oil gets us deeper into debt and dependency to foreign oil---using up your own scarcer oil resources first puts you faster at the mercy of other states with greater oil reserves. Best practices would be to save your own scarce oil (leave it in the ground) and develop more plentiful reserves of energy alternatives that you have more readily at hand and the inexpensive ,simple technology to develop it from the sun, wind, and earth.

Well depends on what news you source, Fox news for instance would not know what investigative reporting is, let alone break a story. They just comment on someone else's work and spin it out to suit a political message. The days of Watergate are over, so all that is left are whistle blowers and Wikileaks who are also crippled by the same system. PBS networks do some decent storys as well but News papers can't afford to have reporter work months on a story. So we have to settle for what the Kardashians are wearing this week.
Lol, those insufferable Kardashians!

Agree in as much as each of said Presidents has expanded the reach of the Executive branch. Each of these expansions become entrenched and accepted by the "sheep". In a few years the ideas of investigative journalism and individual privacy will be quaint memories. The last vestiges of government accountability are being ground out by this President.
They've won and we've known for years that Ike was right.
Your running mates here are all on board for intervention in Syria.

The New York gun confiscation law exempts cops and retired cops.

What justification is there for retired cops to have special privileges?

As for Ms. Feinstein/Blum, if she is opposed to any exemptions for veterans she should just say so and not accuse them of being less mentally healthy than society in general, which is what she implied. Not really a big deal, and could be resolved with a simple apology.

What helps more:

One billionaire handed $50 million dollars per year as a bush/cheney tax cut,

Or 500,000 avg income folks getting a thousand bucks each. <---- these guys need stuff! Will spend it now.

Billionaire: one guy! With a thousand million dollars.

Already has everything. Does he take the $50 million and buy 300,000 bags of groceries? Does he go out and buy 50,000 new cars? NO. JUST HOARDES IT!

word association:

Republican. Greedy.

Republican. Selfish.

Republican. Hypocrite.

Wonder how many Republicans didn't turn out last year 'cause Fox was assuring them that Romney was a slam-dunk?
Who does Fox really work for? They've done a hell of a job making a joke out of the Republican Party and so-called "conservatives".
Its either one of the most elaborate, clever conspiracies ever or they're a bunch of idiots leading idiots.
Galt is still trying to understand why Republicans stayed home.

The immediate suspicion is anti-Mormon bigotry by fundamentalist Christians, a worthless fringe cult that should not be pandered to. They are the problem, not Fox. The anti-abortion crowd turns off Conservative women voters who are not part of their religious cult.

Republicans should focus on tax and budget issues, where they had great success in 2010.

Another faux-war veteran idiot who thinks the US should poke our noses where nobody but Islamic terrorists want us.

The American people have a clear message for Obama and his Muslim brothers: "WTF are you thinking"?
