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

Is Obama worse than Bush? That's beside the point
Obama's transformation from national security dove to hawk is the norm: any president is captive to America's imperial power
...Whereas Bush illegally invaded a nation with great fanfare, Obama has chosen to bump people off with great stealth (unless it's Bin Laden, in which case he metaphorically parades around with a head on a pike). Those are different strategies, but the discussion about which is better or worse is sterile precisely because neither is good and neither works. Whatever their declared intentions, both involve the murder of civilians and the creation of enemies, which in turn demand a clandestine security structure that seeks to pre-empt the metastasizing resistance to its policies both at home and abroad. The sprawling growth of its spying program is commensurate with the size of its military and the spread of its incursions into countries like Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan where it is not formally at war.
As I wrote the day before Obama's first inauguration:
"He has been elected to represent the interests of the most powerful country in the world. Those will not be the same interests as those of the powerless."
America did not come by that power through its own innate genius. It acquired it, as do all empires, in no small part through war, invasion, subterfuge and exploitation. Spying and lying about it comes with the job description for which Obama applied and was reappointed.

You are of course referring to the welfare for corporate farms, right?
More idiocy from Progressives who fail to understand what they are criticizing.

The subsidies paid to farmers are for ten named groups-wheat, milk, peanuts, soybeans, corn, etc.

Did you ever think about why the FEDs are making it profitable to raise those crops? Of course not.

These named food items are considered essential by the FEDs because they are used as commodities to fulfill obligations to the UN food programs and used for low income commodities as well are sent to school lunch programs and other institutions.

What the law states is- if the market price falls below a certain level -making it unprofitable to produce this item- the government will fallow a formula to reimburse the farmer so there will always be a supply.

Did the IRS Win the Election for Obama?

....Peggy Noonan on Friday touted Vueger’s spin on the study (which she clearly did not read) and seemed especially taken with the theory that it was a Democratic voter suppression effort:

Think about the sheer political facts of the president’s 2012 victory. The first thing we learned, in the weeks after the voting, was that the Obama campaign was operating with a huge edge in its technological operation—its vast digital capability and sophistication. The second thing we learned, in the past month, is that while the campaign was on, the president’s fiercest foes, in the Tea Party, were being thwarted, diverted and stopped. Technological savvy plus IRS corruption. The president’s victory now looks colder, more sordid, than it did.

Thinking about it, as Noonan suggests I do, I just cannot find a there there. The Tea Party seems to have contributed to a higher vote for the GOP — measured by the popular vote for the House, which is Veuger’s baseline — in 2012 than in 2008, and much a larger total than 2010. Meanwhile, the Tea Party was not being “thwarted, diverted, and stopped.” The IRS was examining the applications of Tea Party-affiliated non-profits, none of which should have had nothing to do with the campaign anyway.

There was a good reason they were being examined. Although we would like to think these citizens groups are as pure as newly fallen snow, the fact is, some Tea Party non-profits were clearly breaking the law.

Not for the first time in the last few years, Peggy Noonan needs to take a deep breath. And AEI might want to caution Stan Veuger about using his colleagues’ straightforward scholarly work to extrapolate a case that is not there.

the world is going to hell in a handbasket and what is "The One's" biggest concern? Global warming and destroying America's economy.

'Obama’s Melting Wings of Love

…The wings of love don’t seem to carry Obama as far as they used to. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews blamed the lackluster performance on the sun’s glare affecting his ability to read the text. THAT’S HOW BAD IT IS: GLOBAL WARMING MELTED HIS PROMPTER.

But the speech itself was barely distinguishable in its cobwebbed UTOPIAN PABULUM from the video for a nuclear-free world just released by Michael Douglas and other celebrities. And Mr. Douglas, who recently gave a fascinating interview to the Guardian in which he blamed his cancerous walnut-sized tongue tumor upon his addiction to oral sex, at least has a better excuse as to why his silvery tongue doesn’t work its magic quite the way it used to.

Der Spiegel, which is the very definition of mainstream media in Germany, described the president’s Berlin stop as a visit by “the head of the largest and most all-encompassing surveillance system ever invented”— and under the headline “Obama’s Soft Totalitarianism.”

Obama isn’t a “soft” totalitarian so much as a slapdash one. His apparatchiks monitor the e-mails of both Jeffrey and George Osborne, but he still can’t tell one from the other.

Likewise, in Syria as in Libya,“the largest and most all-encompassing surveillance system ever invented” can’t tell a plucky freedom fighter itching to build Massachusetts in the sands of Araby from your neighborhood al-Qaeda subsidiary whose health-care plan only covers clitoridectomies.

OBAMA’S G8 COLLEAGUES HAVE BEGUN TO FIGURE OUT THAT AMERICA NO LONGER MATTERS. To be sure, the trappings of the presidency are a lagging indicator: He still flies in with more limos and Secret Service agents than everybody else, combined. Then again, the other American story to catch the fancy of the Fleet Street tabloids in recent days is that of the unfortunate Las Vegas man with the world’s biggest scrotum, weighing 140 pounds, yet unable to perform.

Of his talks with Vladimir Putin, the president said,“With respect to Syria, we do have differing perspectives on the problem, but we share an interest in reducing the violence.” Putin aims to reduce the violence by getting his boy Assad to kill everyone he needs to. Obama aims to reduce the violence by giving a speech about the “intolerance that fuels extremism”— or is it the other way round?

THE WORLD UNDERSTANDS THAT PUTIN MEANS IT AND OBAMA DOESN’T — JUST AS IN AFGHANISTAN EVERYONE KNOWS THE TALIBAN MEANS IT AND THE FAINTHEARTED SUPERPOWER DOESN’T.

Thanks to the stork delivering his bundle to Miss Kardashian, Americans seem not to have noticed that THE U.S. HAS JUST LOST YET ANOTHER WAR. BUT IN MOSCOW, BEIJING, TEHRAN, THEY NOTICED, AND THEY WILL ACT ACCORDINGLY.

On the wings of love, up and above the clouds, Obama wafts ever higher on his own gaseous uplift.

Down on solid ground, the rest of the world must occasionally wonder if they haven’t confused the U.S. delegation with the world’s most empty-headed boy band.
