Most presidents, if not all, have a record of past accomplishments in past leadership positions.
Just wish a few liberals on here would point out some of Obama's accomplishments as an Illinois Senator in one of the most politically corrupt cities in the country - and then as a junior Senator in the U.S. Congress where he won unopposed because of a nasty divorce scandal that somehow "leaked" about his opponent...like his other two opponents running for the Illinois Senate where he also ran unopposed and winning by a slim majority.
Most people don't know that. But we certainly knew enough in 2008 and 2012 that should have never gotten him on the ticket - much less win the presidency.
Well....there's his vigorous support for the killing of late term abortion survivors. You'd think liberals would be crowing about that! I wonder why they don't?

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.
Sure they do. But they can also provide their own power when one reactor is shutdown for maintenance. In this case, all the reactors were.

But this wasn't a planned event.

And it's clear the DR plan was insufficient

The U.S. reprises Iraq, inventing a WMD threat from Syria. The FBI concocts home-grown terror through stings, while the NSA claims it has secretly saved many lives.“Why this steady stream of government-invented terror, if the real thing is so abundant?” And, isn’t the U.S. arming and funding the same jihadists they are supposed to be listening for on our telephones?

ALL DONE BY THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT same as the 43 WHITE PRESIDENT

before it's all over, he'll have to call every republican in congress a democrat.
if they want to be reelected, sooner or later they'll have start worrying about what's best for the country rather than the radical agenda of the Tea Party. and we know how the nutjobs are about hating what's best for America.
RINO is such a neat republican term. They are destroying their own party and hope a few scandals will distract.

<quoted text> I can't list all of Barack Obama's accomplishments as a U.S. Senator ,but here's a few important ones. Read the entire article . "Don't be a dummy. When your smart-ass conservative friend asks you to name a bill that Obama helped write or get passed, here's a pretty big list to choose from."..."The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act
Introduced by Sen. John McCain in May 2005, and cosponsored by Sen. Edward Kennedy. Barack Obama added three amendments to this bill.
While the bill was never voted on in the Senate, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Acts of 2006 and 2007, respectively, drew heavily upon the wording of this bill." ..."The Lugar-Obama Cooperative Threat Reduction.
Introduced by Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Dick Lugar and Sen. Tom Coburn.
First introduced in November 2005 and enacted in 2007, this bill expanded upon the successful Nunn-Lugar threat reduction, which helped secure weapons of mass destruction and related infrastructure in former Soviet Union states." ... "Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006
This act of Congress, introduced by Senators Obama and Coburn, required the full disclosure of all entities or organizations receiving federal funds in FY2007."... Honest Leadership and Open Government Act
In the first month of the 110th Congress, Obama worked with Sen. Russ Feingold to pass this law, which amends and strengthens the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995.
Specificially, the changes made by Obama and Feingold requires public disclosure of lobbying activity and funding, places more restrictions on gifts for members of Congress and their staff, and provides for mandatory disclosure of earmarks in expenditure bills.
The House passed the bill, 411-8, on July 31. The Senate approved it, 83-14, on Aug. 2. At the time, Obama called it "the most sweeping ethics reform since Watergate." http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/07/07/5478...
I'm talking about his accomplishments as a leader - not a follower.

We have laws protecting whistle blowers as they help keep our government open to the voters.
You and any other progressives chanting "You either all in for Obama or traitor" are brain washed sheep. I have no patience for those you sold themselves to a leader.
Scat now!
OBama has been ruthless to whistle blowers prosecuting more than any other admin in first four years.
It's a fact!
Right. Andrew Breitbart died before he had a chance to defend.
