Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

<quoted text> Obama sure is glad that he doesn't have the same huge spending deficits as Reagan and Bush43-- in both of those republican administrations the national debt quadrupled and multiplied upwards by 8-times what the budget deficit had been. "Lenders talk about a &#65533;debtor&#65533; s death spiral.&#65533; It occurs when borrowers get so far in over their heads they begin borrowing money just to cover the interest payments on past borrowings. The borrowers have to do this to keep the lending flowing but they can no longer plausibly pay down the principal. As new debt compounds on old, bankruptcy becomes imminent. Further lending is foolhardy. Foreclosure is only a matter of time.
The U.S. is starting to look like it is entering just such a death spiral. It is foretold not simply by the large and growing deficits, nor by the fact that their carrying costs will rise quickly as interest rates rise. Rather, it is the fact that these trends are becoming irreversible, a structural part of the U.S. economy.
When the ultimate collapse will occur, whether it comes with a bang or a whimper, how it will be triggered, and how severe it will be are as yet unknown. But as Herbert Stein, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Richard Nixon was fond of saying, &#65533;Things that can&#65533;t go on forever, don&#65533;t.&#65533;
The first signs of impending trouble are the exploding budget deficits themselves. They began, of course, under the parlous economic stewardship of Ronald Reagan. Reagan cut the marginal tax rate on the wealthiest of Americans from 70% to 38%. He promised it would spur an orgy of investment and rocket the economy to new levels of production and prosperity. Instead, his &#65533;supply side economics&#65533; did the exact opposite. It produced the deepest recession since the Great Depression. "

I heard it as the other president-meaning each individual. Besides Obama has time-he did that in just four years. Do you really think he will stop now.

A little surprise you are bragging about it.

Nah, the equities markets already had their correction last week. Today was just panic over China. DJIA's only down 54 points right now and headed up because today provided a buying opportunity for those who got out in anticipation of the correction.

ok, which one of you FOXbots was pushing this earlier....
Fox News And Donald Trump Use Snowden Story To Revive Birther Claims
No one is surprised anymore when Fox News brazenly brandishes their rightist leanings or promotes Republican candidates and causes. Anyone who is paying attention recognizes that Fox is the PR arm of the GOP. But having established that fact, Fox is now swinging for the fences and attempting to take the mantle of fringe fictionalists from the likes of Glenn Beck and Alex Jones.
The media is clearly obsessed with this new melodrama revolving around Edward Snowden and the international chase scene that has reporters racking up frequent flier miles and dreams of sky-high ratings. They would like nothing better than a helicopter hovering over a white Bronco as it tracks Snowden to some exotic tropical sanctuary. Every media whore in the business is weighing in.
So it goes without saying that this morning on Fox & Friends, the kiddies on the curvy couch hosted national joke and Hair Club for Dicks spokesman, Donald Trump, to discuss the Snowden affair. Trump wasted no time in sensationalizing the matter with his typically shallow analysis by calling for Snowden (who has been convicted of nothing) to be executed and blaming Obama for everything. But Trump’s outraged is not reserved for Snowden alone. When he was asked what he thought about the newspapers that published Snowden’s documents, Trump said that it was “disgraceful.” So he is not only opposed to whistleblowers, he also opposes journalists. He even managed to inject a swipe at Climate Change when he mentioned some nonsense about magazine covers in the 1920&#8242;s reporting global cooling.
However, the focus was squarely on Snowden as Trump implied that America is weak and in danger of imminent extinction. Although, in the minds of these extremist right-wingers, America is always mortally threatened by whatever their issue du jour might be, whether it’s health care, immigration, or totalitarian bicycles (seriously). But the wheels really came off the interview when Trump segued from Snowden’s flight to his favorite subject, the President’s birth certificate.
Trump: You know the only thing we don’t seem to get are the records from the President. Isn’t that interesting?
Brian Kilmeade: Yeah, no one leaks that.
Steve Doocy: Yeah, where are those?
Yeah! How come that Kenyan socialist Muslim doesn’t release his records – again? Why is continuing to deceive the American people about his foreign nativity and his phony academic resume? And when will he come clean about his real father being former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers? And what his Marxist upbringing, his gay husband, and his alien reptilian body that lies beneath that human costume he wears?
America wants to know. And thank God for Fox News – the only media outlet courageous enough to ask these questions. As for Snowden, if he really wants to gain some credibility with the Free Speech crowd, he should show up in Red Square wearing a Free Pussy Riot t-shirt while he’s in Russia.

For those, you Gilligan fixated on eating dogs and croww, here is a quote from Obama's book "Dreams of My Father" - "With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)."

Yes, I would also call it cherry picking that does not prove cause and effect.
In 2001 the CBO estimated the entire national debt would be paid down by 2013 but that was before two wars, two major tax cuts, medicare expansion, financial collapse, etc.
Hmmm, instead in 2013 the debt's 16 trillion.
That's cause and effect.
Sometime read the whole CBO report. They use the figures given to them by the politicians and then they mention that the numbers may be too optimistic in a real nice way.

Writing legit if rainbows and unicorns exist would be bad decorum.

The bottom line is you can bet it will cost up to twice what projected and estimated revenue will be 25 to 50% less-occasionally more.

The CBO bases its reports on current law & current trends.

In early 2001, we had a balanced budget & on the road to paying off our debt.

You can lie & make up sh*t all you want but this is the truth.

When Bush & Gore wee running for president, what did Bush run on?

Giving it back.

When you figure out what"it" is you will become better informed.
