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

Major Nadal wasn't under anybody's radar, at least anybody who came in contact with him in the Army. Alarms were sounded, but ignored for political correctness.
And if NSA snooping couldn't catch the Boston bombers, who can they catch?
My point exactly. If this was so important and effective why all these missed targets who had left their fingerprints all over the exact places PRISM was watching? How about Snowden, Manning et. al.? I find it hard to swallow that the program performed as they're claiming it did, I wouldn't expect them to come out and say it was a flop.

Correct.
So why do we do it?
So that we can elect and re-elect politicians; they know we have an aversion to uncertainty. Our grand parents just wanted a chicken in their pot but that's how snowballs start.

We are sissies!

All it means is that no system is foolproof. What is accomplished by the general public being privy to all national security programs? Our enemies or terror groups are being educated in our weak points. Nidal was suspect; however, do we arrest every person who is acting weird ? He was a US citizen in the military.
The Boston bombers story is intriguing and I'm not convinced that the Russians actually warned anyone; perhaps they were sent on their mission by the Russians, and furthermore may be connected to the Syria debacle. Anyone who trusts Putin and the Ruusians is insane.
Why does the general public support a government who creates all these spy agencies and turn them on their own citizenry to protect them from enemies the same government created?

How about just not making enemies?

Now what? From what I can see, still the same results.
Not sure what you mean. Every power plant, even base providers, shut down periodically for maintenance. These outages are planned ten years out and the grid is managed to support them. The reason good supplemental sources like wind and solar can't be used for base load generation is 'cause the wind doesn't blow and the sun doesn't shine 24/7. Its possible to store the energy from solar and wind but then you add the inefficiency of storage on top of the inefficiency of generation and it quickly becomes unfeasible.

Dwight Eisenhower was an independent, not a Republican.
Everett Dirksen and Bob Dole were good men, middle-of-the-road Republicans, but unfortunately content to go along with Democrats as a permanent minority. Just like McCain and Romney.
Dwight Eisenhower ran as a Republican on the Republican ticket so however you want to slice it he was a Republican.
The GOP is dooming itself to minority status by pandering to the extreme right and wasting time and taxpayer money pushing legislation in the House that has zero chance of going anywhere.

Morning, Vladimir, and now that your radical Socialist (AKA Democrat) Party pushes legislation such as Obozocare (Unaffordable Health Care Act) no Republicans will vote for. For that, they had to play dirty and Pewlosi told us we had to pass the bill to read it (come on!).

Talk about wasting taxpayer money! 30 million will still be uninsured and all of Obama's promises were lies.

Now that Democrats have overreached and exposed their corruption (abuse of power within the IRS, NSA, EPA, Justice, etc.), it looks like you are doomed come the mid-term elections and your "boy" is a neutered lame duck. He now will just practice his corruption with Executive Power, which he should not have.

You people are nothing but lazy mooches who can't wait to collect a check for doing nothing. Does that sound like you, Vladimir?

You are destroying this country.

It is easier to fool a person that it is to convince them they have been fooled.- Mark Twain.

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his grandparents. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his motherís two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Annís parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obamaís boast of his grandfatherís military service, thereís no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obamaís life, his motherís life and his grandparentís life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

This should come and no surprise to anyone. If you recall, the Democrats and media duped the entire population... that's the entire population... with a system of lies about Vietnam that took 30 years to research and debunk.
This is no different.

You are, right now, being programmed to look away from the NSA spying on everyone in the United States... will, almost everyone. The muslims here who want to kill you, the NSA isn't spying on.

It has to do with Obama's pledge of transparency.
However, I think you people are completely clueless when it comes to what goes on in this country. I suggest you read the attached Justice Department report if you want to understand why countries like Russia and China "thumb their collective noses at this admin."
Examples from the report:
On Oct. 3, 2012: "An indictment was unsealed in the Eastern District of New York charging 11 members of a Russian procurement network operating in the United States and Russia, as well as a Houston based export company, Arc Electronics Inc., and a Moscow-based procurement firm, Apex System L.L.C.,with illegally exporting high-tech microelectronics from the United States to Russian military and intelligence agencies. Alexander Fishenko, an owner and executive of both the American and Russian companies, is also charged with operating as an unregistered agent of the Russian government inside the U.S. by illegally procuring the microelectronics on behalf of the Russian government."
Sept. 26, 2012: Sixing Liu, aka ďSteve Liu,Ē a native of China with a PhD in electrical engineering who worked as a senior staff
engineer for Space & Navigation, a New Jersey-based division of L-3 Communications, was convicted in the District of New Jersey of exporting sensitive U.S. military technology to China, stealing trade secrets and lying to federal agents."
The jury convicted Liu of nine of 11 counts of an April 5, 2012 second superseding indictment, specifically six counts of violating the Arms 14 Export Control Act, one count of possessing stolen trade secrets in violation of the Economic Espionage Act, one count of transporting stolen property, and one count of lying to federal
agents."

Remind O'bama to arrest Billy Clinton then: remind America about the true legacy of Bill Clinton. Clinton as one who sold our technologies to Communist China, putting all American families and our men and women in uniform at risk:

Stealth Technology
The J20 Fighter
Radiation Hardened Nuclear Chips
Advance Space Technology
Missile Technology
Multiple Re-entry Warhead Technology

See liberal Clinton didn't want the United States to be the lone super power--he believed everyone should be on an even playing field even if it meant they would kill us. Clinton sold out the American people in more ways than one.

It is the republicans: mcCain and Graham who are pushing to arm the rebels, the Saudis are also backing the rebels.
Qatar, Jordan, Lebannon___just about every nation in the middle East wants Assad and his generals gone. It's a twofer because an Assad exit dramatically weakens Hezbollah.

Presently only Iran, certain factions in Iraq and of course Russia support Assad.

The rebels are equally despicable and may turn on each other in the absence of Assad, never the less Syria's neighbors including Israel would prefer the rebels to Assad.

Corrupt Democrats up to the same old tricks again:

"A top Senate Republican sounded the alarm ahead of a major test vote on Monday that could clear the way for imminent passage of a sweeping immigration overhaul, saying the chamber is about to vote on a bill "no one has read."

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who for months has been fighting against the bill, accused the Senate of rushing to vote on the legislation amid a late push to modify it. At issue is a border security amendment being touted by supporters as a bipartisan compromise that could attract a large majority.

But Sessions accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of cramming the amendment into the rest of the "1,200-page" bill with the goal of advancing the legislation late Monday afternoon.

"The Majority Leader's motion will stifle amendments and accelerate the vote on final passage before anyone has vetted the modified legislation," Sessions said in a statement"

The roof fell in on John Boehnerís House of Representatives last week. The Republican leadershipís humiliating defeat on a deeply flawed and inhumane farm bill was as clear a lesson as weíll get about the real causes of dysfunction in the nationís capital.

Our ability to govern ourselves is being brought low by a witchesí brew of right-wing ideology, a shockingly cruel attitude toward the poor on the part of the Republican majority, and the speakerís incoherence when it comes to his need for Democratic votes to pass bills.

Clinton most definitely sold us out, big time! Here is one example. There are other huge sellouts as well.
