Barack Obama, our next President

Is Obama still licensed to practice law?
The answer is no.
What difference does it make?

<quoted text> That's bullshit! George Tenet already blew the doors off the 9/11 commission. The were forewarned by damn near the entire middle east of such attacks being plotted. In April 01, Italy also informed the US of the plot by Al Qaeda to hijack airplanes & all, when they observed a conversation of Al Qaeda speaking about the plot. Norad also contradicts the 9/11 commission. No I'm not a conspiracy theorist. You let the investigation sanctioned by the same people said to have inside knowledge of the attack tell you they had no prior knowledge. If you believe that nonsense, you better never say anything negative about Obama!
Actually, what you refer to seems to be the plot to bomb 12 airlines crossing the Pacific Ocean bound for the United States on the same day.
Besides, hijacking planes is nothing new for the Arabs. They've been doing it since 1973. It happened so often, there were many spoofs of them in movies and songs I remember all the way back to the Carter disaster/administration.
Italy: "Hey, Uncle Sam, some Arabs are going to hijack some planes." Uncle Sam: "Do tell. Do you people get newspapers in Italy?"

Conspiracies are real. I don't know how people became so well trained to think one of the most natural of human actions, to engage in a plan while keeping it secret from others, i.e. a conspiracy, becomes impossible at some magic level of government or society.
How old were you when you engaged in your first conspiracy? When was the last conspiracy you participated in? Did you participate in a conspiracy today?
Anyone who attempts to train you to think conspiracies are impossible is someone you should never trust anything they say.

Bush understands the "proper balance" between spying on suspected terrorists and suspected enemies of the state.
Bush took the opportunity to support Obama and the difficult spot he finds himself in now.
I think Obama finally quit blaming Bush for everything in January of this year.
Bush was also gracious enough not to remind us that Obama created the spot he finds himself in now.
Interesting....

... a 'balance' of spying between bad guys.

That's a new one.....

Well, here's the whole story - the important stuff you forgot to mention.
Paul had certification from the American Board of Ophthalmology before letting it lapse in favor of certification from the board he heads.
Asked when he would address the issue, he replied, "Uh, what does this have to do with our election?"
Paul did release a statement that explained he formed his board out of frustration that the American Board of Ophthalmology forced doctors certified after 1992 to be recertified every decade.
"I thought this was hypocritical and unjust for the older ophthalmologists to exempt themselves from the recertification exam...Is it fair that the ophthalmologist down the street can claim board certification without renewing it but that a younger ophthalmologist who passed the same boards is disallowed?"

I liked his initial response better. "Uh, what does this have to do with our election?"
You libs are so sneaky. Already getting warmed up to dupe and distract again.
Is there a war against Rand Paul now?
Then he's really not a certified, licensed doctor, is he? And if he makes the claim, then he's a liar, isn't he?

(Note that the Dumbass prosecution effectively allows Zimmerman to testify via a police tape without him having to take the stand. What law school did this clown attend?)

The Sanford police detective who questioned George Zimmerman the night he shot Trayvon Martin became the latest prosecution witness to appear to do more harm than good to the state's case, recalling a somber conversation that touched on Zimmerman's faith and the fear he said he felt when Martin told him "You're going to die tonight."

Detective Doris Singleton testified Monday that Zimmerman seemed somber and conflicted as she interviewed him after the February 2012 shooting. She said Zimmerman asked her about the crucifix around her neck and buried his head in his hands upon learning Martin had died.

"I had a silver cross on and he asked me if I was Catholic," Singleton said during testimony. "I said,'No. I'm Christian. Why are you asking?'"

She said Zimmerman replied, saying that he had noticed the cross and told Singleton that it was "always wrong to kill" someone.

"I said to him,'If what you're telling me is true then I don't think that's what God meant.[That] you couldn't save your own life,'" she told the court.

Singleton testified that a shocked Zimmerman replied, "He's dead?" to which she said, "I thought you knew that."

Assistant Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda appeared frustrated at times by the prosecution witness' testimony, which, like previous witnesses put on by the state, at times seemed to put Zimmerman in a sympathetic light. Several times, De La Rionda turned his back on the witness stand and looked to his co-counsel, almost in frustration.

Audiotape of Singleton, who did not respond to the crime scene, was played in court. On it, Zimmerman stated that Martin seemed suspicious because he was, "taking his time, and looking at all the houses" while Zimmerman was patrolling the gated community. Zimmerman said Martin "jumped out" at him from the bushes and said, "What the f--- is your problem, homey?" The defendant claimed on the tape that he responded by saying that he didn't have a problem, to which Martin responded by saying, "Now you have a problem," and punched him in the nose.

Zimmerman said on the tape that the strike caused him to fall to the ground and Martin got on top of him and started to throw more punches.

"He was whaling on my head and I was yelling for help," Zimmerman can be heard saying to Singleton on the tape. "He put his hands on my nose and said,'You're going to die tonight.'"

He added that he thought Martin was going for his gun, before he pulled on it and shot the young man.

You just don't get it. The holes in this list are so big, you could walk through them.
It's been stated numerous times by numerous people with numerous sources who don't agree with anything on your list for good reason.

All Harry Reid needed was a big red nose and Pelosi a whoopee cushion.
Hope you're not too healthy. Obama's health care reform will raise premiums by as much as three times for a healthy person than a non-healthy person.
Surprise!
Was good to see the tea party deliver in 2010
LOL

Nevada's embattled senator capped a stunning political comeback Tuesday, soundly defeating tea party champion Sharron Angle and helping keep the Senate in Democratic control.

Marked as one of the most vulnerable incumbents, the unpopular Reid paired a relentless TV ad campaign with a formidable turnout machine to win a fifth term, defeating Angle by 6 points. He avoided the indignity of becoming the first Senate majority leader to lose re-election in 58 years.

"I've run in some tough elections no one thought I could win," Reid told cheering supporters at a casino on the Las Vegas Strip. "We are proof that a test is tough only if you're not tough."

He echoed President Barack Obama, who visited the state several times on Reid's behalf. "Nevada chose to move forward, not backwards," Reid said.

On Wednesday morning, Reid was even more confident.

"I've had some tight races, but this wasn't one of them," Reid said on CBS' "The Early Show."

The last Senate majority leader to lose a re-election bid was Arizona's Ernest W. McFarland in 1952

You turn :-)

Rand Paul is a U.S. Senator anyway. Don't think he's performing eye exams on his colleagues or constituents.
Let's just hope the imaginary wars don't begin again until at least after the first of the year.
I'm exhausted from the last imaginary wars that appeared out of nowhere before the election and vanished into thin air once the election was over. Like every election cycle.
Are Americans becoming dumber?
No you're not.

You're exhausted because those battles aren't going your way...

Why would a "genius" like you feel the need to resort to melting down like you are?

If you are so smart, why are you here and not on a thread where your fellow intellectuals visit?

Because you are an idiot, Dumb Dave. That's why. Typical Obama voting Democrat who needs government and others to carry your load.

Wow, aren't you going to now praise Obama for increasing home sales by 67%. Or will you search for a different time period top lay more blame onto Obama for your buddy Bush's failures.
A large number of current home sales are the real estate equivalent of venture/vulture capitalists, cash investors picking up distressed properties and either renting or flipping the properties.
