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

The logical conclusion is that if Bush didn't blatantly go after his political enemies using the IRS...and if Bush didn't call his opposition "a potential threat to democracy...and if Bush's DOJ didn't illegally confiscate emails and phone records of an opposition in the press...and if Tice's, like Snowden's, allegations are true that "the abuse is rampant"...and if the NSA has increased capabilities allowing them to copy "every domestic communication in this country word for word"...shouldn't we have every reason to be even more concerned under Obama than under Bush?
Considering this president made it quite clear early on that some of us are his enemies?
It sure would've concerned me if Bush had made that clear right before individual liberals and liberal organizations were targeted and interrogated by the FBI and a liberal journalist's emails and phone records were illegally confiscated by Bush's Attorney General - knowing what we know now about the NSA.
Very concerned...even as a conservative.
Shouldn't we be more concerned now since this president and his administration act like they are completely immune from any scrutiny because of a disengaged media?
Wouldn't you be more concerned if the shoe was on the other foot - your foot to be precise?
Bush seems on board with National Security
Bush did not directly say whether he thinks Snowden can be labeled a “traitor” but said he knows the country has been hurt as a result of the leaks.
“I think he damaged the security of the country,” Bush said on CNN while visiting Africa, adding that President Barack Obama will deal with the situation.
Bush also defended the surveillance program, which began during his administration after Sept. 11, saying the programs guarantee civil liberties are protected.
“I put the program in place to protect the country and one of the certainties is civil liberties were guaranteed,” Bush said. He went on to say there needs to be a balance between security and privacy when protecting the country.
“I think there needs to be a balance, and I think as the president explained there’s a proper balance,” he said.

“Bill Clinton could have ”

How great this Obamacare is? Let the new Dem candidate support it as Obama slides out of town.
This is a dictatorship. You think you live in a Constitutional Republic? it isn't. Ignore laws they don't like. Push laws they like. This is absolute lawlessness.

<quoted text>You know? You're absolutely right. Want proof? Just take a look at my stock prices before things fell apart. They were phenomenal! And I just kept gouging California left and right. Heck, I even put little old ladies out on the street because they couldn't pay their electric bills.
Want more proof? Look at Arthur Anderson. They gave me and my company a clean bill of health! It's not my fault they 'lost' the audit papers.
And besides, I wasn't the CFO. That was Fastow's job. A couple of us tried to throw him under the bus but the damn government wouldn't have any of it. And neither did the SEC.
Heck, I was doing so well even after the company went bankrupt I was still building my new house and had plenty of money left over.
It's not my fault all these OTHER people screwed up. I didn't know what was going on anyway... at least that's what my attorney told me to say.
Convinced? I hope so!

Someone says Obama not from US

Over generalization fallacy.
Obama's heritage is NOT of Negro Slaves of America. Obama is NOT an authentic, true, bonafide brother nor a descendant of Black U.S. History, but only "OUTSOURCED" with Kenyan roots, a Muslim Heritage, and Irish white mother, Obama to fool the White idiot and unconscious Black race...

Just keep repeating that bunk, dummy.

Republicans account for 1/3 of the vote, so your bullshit is obvious, DemoKrat.

Like you did with changing the name of Glow Bull Warming, you better change it from 1% to 30%, moron.

Will this decision-to delay employer mandate- reinforce perception that Obamacare is a looming train wreck?
The only reason for the delay is that Obama knew enforcing the mandate would blow the Democrats out of the water in the 2014 elections.

The "light skinned NEGRO", as Democrat Senate majority Leader calls Obama, hate America just the same. The Democrats who value party first, America last, knew he could rile all the other misfits. We see evidence of that here.

Bush's first term approval average = 62%
Obama's first term approval average = 49%.

Bush's second term approval average = 37%.

Obama's recent approval 45%. Disapproval 47%.

In June and July 2005, Bush was doing slightly better than Obama - mid to upper forties.

Bush now leads Obama in approval.

Shocking, huh?

Barack Obama does not need to practice law so why maintain the license?
To maintain a law license in Illinois requires continuing education, maintaining malpractice insurance, etc.
Most people who earn a law degree and pass the bar exam take great pride in their accomplishment and will go to great lengths to maintain their status.

To those who slide through on preferences and flunk the bar exam (like Moochelle), it means little.

None of us know. The top 10 hip-hop records either have that word in the title or the lyrics. And a lot of young blacks hear it every single day.
