Barack Obama, our next President

It’s been a great week for gay activists, but Dr. Cornel West is not happy. As the postmodern professor par excellence explained to radio host Tavis Smiley last Sunday, the advances made by gays and lesbians mean that “we black folk are just being pushed to the back of the bus”:
"Again this has something to do of course with what history books will say. The irony of the age of Obama in which black folks found themselves pushed to the back,[and] our gay brothers and lesbian sisters more and more pushed to the center."
Perhaps West is right, and identity politics really is a zero-sum game. Then again, the good doctor may simply be suffering from a touch of radical conditionedness.
African-Americans have been 'pushed to the back of the bus' ever since Richard Nixon's "southern strategy' to win the U S Presidency in 1968. Read more about it here--> http://www.thenation.com/article/rick-perlste...

Obammy's 5 Step War on the Middle Class
Step 3 of 5
3) Higher Student Loan Costs: One of the great aspirations of middle class Americans is sending their kids to college. That takes a lot of money that sometimes needs to be borrowed. Many young Americans who hope to work their way into the middle class have taken out college loans as well.
Because of Barack Obama, those college loans cost considerably more.
After Obama seized the student loan industry, he talked a lot about making college more affordable.
However, what he did was charge higher rates for the student loans so he could take the money and funnel it into Obamacare.
The government borrows money at 2.8 percent and loans it out to students at 6.8%.
Incidentally, those mean old Republicans? They want to cut the rate to 5.3%, but Obama is fighting to make students pay more.
So, if you think you're paying too much interest on student loans, make sure to thank Obama for that.
The larger question is the wisdom of going deeply into debt for worthless degrees from fourth-rate schools for jobs that do not exist.

Why not work and attend college at night, instead of piling up massive debt?
Whatever

You just don't get it. This fight was for "equality".

It was a fight for the same family medical leave, partner/family immigration, spousal social security benefits, spousal veterans benefits, Federal income tax benefits, inheritance tax benefits, hospital visitation/decisions as enjoyed by any other married couple. The only ones complaining will be right-wing nuts like yourself.

As far as Obama goes, we have only a pdf to go by.

--------National Unity on Foreign Policy
The laying of a wreath at the American embassy in Dar es Salaam Tuesday symbolized a big theme of both the Barack Obama and George W Bush administrations: The war against al Qaeda.
President Obama was warmly greeted by throngs in Tanzania, but his message of trade was overshadowed by other events around the world.
The two men met in Tanzania to to honor the memories of the 224 people – 12 of them Americans – killed by al Qaeda truck bombs at that embassy and the one in Nairobi, Kenya, on Aug. 7, 1998.
Osama bin Laden’s embassy attacks were precursors of 9/11; signals, unmistakable in retrospect, that bin Laden and his allies had launched a new kind of war.
For both friends and foes Bush’s handling of all that occurred after Sept. 11, 2001, will be the major part of his legacy, a legacy about which Bush said in an interview with CNN Monday he wasn’t worried:
“history will judge the decisions that I made. And I won't be around because it's going to take a while for the objective historians to show up.”
But in dealing with al Qaeda, Obama hasn’t turned out to be exactly what his supporters expected in 2008.
Obama expanded Bush’s strategy of using unmanned drones to kill suspected terrorists in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.
There’s continuity with President Bill Clinton, too. Clinton tried to kill bin Laden after the 1998 embassy attacks with a cruise missile strike in Afghanistan – not so different from a drone strike.
Bush – who has been circumspect and has said almost nothing about terrorism since leaving office – has not only refrained from criticizing his successor, but on Monday essentially endorsed Obama’s handling of the NSA/ Snowden mess.
“I know he (Snowden) damaged the country. The Obama administration will deal with it,” the former president said.
Asked about the NSA surveillance, Bush said,“I put the program in place to protect the country and one of the certainties is civil liberties were guaranteed.”
He added,“I think there needs to be a balance (between individual liberty and national security) and as the president (Obama) described, there is a proper balance.”
Obama, he said magnanimously, has “got plenty on his agenda and it's difficult. A former president doesn't need to make it harder” by criticizing him.
In his National Defense University speech, Obama said that “this war, like all wars, must end,” but the war which included the 1998 embassy bombings will likely continue after Obama leaves the White House.------
==========
Is it not Bush gone yet?
He thinks he is still around by running Obama the policies on terrorism and Snowden case, etc.
You did not get your worth by electing the 4th term of Bush as the policies and views are still Bush's, but just use the name of Obama as president.
How come, what is going on?
But if Bush did not have his views worked anywhere during his time, including Iraq issue , what makes Obama think his Bush views and policies will go anywhere?
You liberals did elect Bush (who is your most unlikeable and rejected), for the 4th time by having the name of Obama.
"President Obama was warmly greeted by thongs in Tanzania"???

The federal income tax "benefits" of marriage are largely negative, as are Medicare benefits in certain circumstances.
