Barack Obama, our next President

So you have nothing to offer in the way of Obama's past leadership accomplishments except upsetting Americans while he's learning on the job?
What are you saying exactly LNC?
Surely, you wouldn't have voted for someone without any past accomplishments in a leadership capacity.
So instead of constantly reminding me libraries have books, why don't you tell me why you voted for Obama based on his past leadership accomplishments?
I promise to be openminded.

There's some concerns over China which we don't have any control over and the Fed is hinting that they may cut back on bond buying in anticipation of continued economic recovery. There's also the normal profit taking that occurs when the market hits highs.
You seem to forget that we went through the same thing in September 2008 and the market went back up again.

BLACKS together obama lololhahahahaha The Black Class Divide

Polls show that upwardly mobile Blacks often share with whites an “utter contempt and hatred for the Black poor,” said Dr. Tony Monteiro, professor of African American studies at Temple University, in Philadelphia.“This class division, this ideological division,” can be seen in the politics of “the Cory Bookers and Michael Nutters”– the Black mayors of Newark and Philadelphia, respectively –“and other Black agents of the 1%,” Monteiro told the workshop

Snapshot: U.S. Obesity Rate Ticking Up

U.S. adult obesity rate up to 27.1% in 2013, from 26.2% in 2012

by Alyssa Brown

WASHINGTON, D.C.-- The adult obesity rate in the U.S. thus far in 2013, at 27.1%, is on pace to surpass rates in prior years. It is up from 26.2% in 2012 and much higher than the 25.5% found in 2008.

Come on fatties can you all have a frickin' salad once in awhile? This is just going to lead to higher healthcare costs. You fat people are the reason Homer's health insurance goes up every year.

Now forget about that fast food burger and fries with the large chocolate shake and a large soft ice cream for desert and go have a salad for lunch instead, then go for a long walk.

Well, Palin was a successful governor and went after the corruption in her own party and won. The liberal propaganda machine just made her an easy target - and her children too.

Not saying she was any more qualified to step into the presidency than Joe Biden.

But you get my drift.

The Bush tax cuts were the only thing that got the economy up and running again after 9/1l, Bozo.

(You don't mind if I call you Bozo when you post clown-like and misleading information, do you?)

No this wasn't planned for but was accounted for in design. Problem was the earthquake was beyond the design basis by a factor of around 10 (that's 10 times more powerful than the plant was designed to withstand) and the tsunami was 3-4 meters above design basis. You can't base designs on theoretical worst-case-in-history events.

Assata Shakur, a Black liberation exiled freedom fighter, is a most wanted terrorist as of this calendar year. The financial elites responsible for the largest transfer of wealth to the top 1 percent of the population from the 99 percent receives trillions in bailouts while people are losing their homes and jobs in high numbers. Even in the midst of staggering levels of poverty and unemployment for all and Black people especially, public schools are being turned over for profit and Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid are on the chopping block. Healthcare costs continue to soar. Obamacare does more for the profits of big pharmaceuticals and insurance companies than it does to expand coverage to Americans. Civil liberties have been eroded to dust with the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act and the re-authorizing of the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is now under scrutiny after the NSA was caught spying on the private lives of US citizens.

You've been on here all morning - and it's Monday. So what do you do exactly?

Do you go to a local library every day and get on one of their computers and that's why you keep referring to libaries?

Am I even close?

It's interesting that Sarah Palin has been invited back to join Fox&Friends after she went on a crash summer reading program of all Patrick Buchanan foreign policy works. Who would have thought that Sarah could change her mind so fast from militarist interventionist Bush43 apologist to an America Firster non-interventionist that sounds like George McGovern?"The Palin Doctrine" "On U.S. military intervention in Syria’s civil war, where ”both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line ‘Allahu akbar’… I say let Allah sort it out.”

So said Sarah Palin to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference. And, as is not infrequently the case, she nailed it.

Hours later, Gideon Rachman of the Financial Times, at length, echoed Palin:“Those who are urging the US to get more deeply involved in the Syrian conflict now are living in the past.”..."Four fundamental changes make it “no longer realistic, or even desirable, for the US to dominate” the Middle East as we did from the Suez crisis of 1956 through the Iraq invasion of 2003.

The four changes: the failures of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, the Great Recession, the Arab Spring and emerging U.S. energy independence."..."Di d those clamoring today for intervention in Syria learn nothing from Ronald Reagan’s intervention in an earlier Arab civil war, the one in Lebanon? Result: 241 dead Marines, the U.S. Embassy in Beirut bombed and hostages taken." http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

So, does the U.S. just 'cut&run' taking no responsibility for the damage that we've done to the region by our long involvement or do we gradually withdraw our military troops, but stay with our Euro and Arab allies in working out of more peaceful stable relations ? Libertarians make the mistake to assume that all conflicts in the anarchic conditions of international relations necessarily leads to war . The opposite is often the case in international relations where most interactions lie somewhere between total indifference and short of all out war.

You people are dumber than sh*t.
The issue and Obama's stance, is what's important here. The life of a breathing, crying, wounded baby should never be decided by a thumbs up or down. His insistence that that power be permitted is abhorrent.
