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 ...

Sources to the FACTS that counter your ignorant statements about Benghazi and the White House being "closed" have been posted over and over again. You are obviously not capable of comprehending the truth. To re-post them would be an act of futility. It would only frustrate you further and I wouldn't want to be responsible for pushing you over that thin ledge you are clinging onto so stubbornly.
Hey moron, I did not make the post you are claiming to have already responded too.

So you think the Benghazi investigation is over with? That is a little premature don't you think?

Where was your concern when Bush launched the National Security Agency surveillance program? At least Bush is willing to take credit for the program.
“I put the program in place to protect the country and one of the certainties was that civil liberties were guaranteed,” Bush said in an interview with CNN published Monday, July 1, 2013.
“I think there needs to be a balance, and as the president explained, there is a proper balance,” Bush said.
The former president criticized NSA leaker Snowden, saying he “damaged the security of the country,” before concluding “the Obama administration will deal with it.”
“History will judge the decisions I made. I won’t be around, because it will take a while for the objective historians to show up,” he said.“So I’m pretty comfortable with it, I did what I did; I know the spirit in which I did it.”
http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/07/01/bush-civil-lib...
Tell us when you changed your mind and decided Bush was a great president, idiot.

Now, back to the post you didn't answer. I'll help you. Here it is again:

So, how's the investigation into the unconstitutional actions of the NSA going?
What is happening is a deliberate attempt to divert attention away from the unconstitutional actions of the government by focussing on an individual.
Give us an update on the investigation of the unconstitutional acts of the government.

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.
Cornel West should get a Nobel just like the Azzhole-In-Chief did.

Americans United ! Good News
There is something powerful, even magical, when presidents and first ladies, past and present, share a stage. When such moments occur on a foreign shore, it is a particularly powerful confluence of American solidarity.
President Barack Obama
and
former President George W. Bush
will be together for a wreath-laying ceremony at the U.S. Embassy in Tanzania, and first lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to participate in a First Ladies Summit there that is hosted by former first lady Laura Bush. It’s the second time in three months that the current and immediate past presidents have shared a bipartisan stage, the previous moment being the April dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the SMU campus.
Despite their political differences on many issues, Obama and Bush have been of like mind in their approach to Africa. Obama has praised the former president’s work on the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, a groundbreaking initiative universally hailed for saving millions of lives across the continent.
So, the frauds in the White House need the Bush's company to give them credibility.

Do you listen to yourself?

This is really funny. The Obama's need to appear with the Bush's to make people think better of them.

I just have to laugh.

Bush was a better president than Obama. If you don't think so, just ask the American people.
Care to tell us how terrible of a president Bush was now?

from the Los Angeles Times
By Chad Terhune
July 2, 2013
The nation's largest health insurer, UnitedHealth Group Inc., is leaving California's individual health insurance market, the second major company to exit in advance of major changes under the Affordable Care Act.
UnitedHealth said it had notified state regulators that it would leave the state's individual market at year-end and force about 8,000 customers to find new coverage. Last month, Aetna Inc., the nation's third-largest health insurer, made a similar move affecting about 50,000 existing policyholders.
Both companies will keep a major presence in California, focusing instead on large and small employers.
The moves illustrate how different companies are responding to a major overhaul of the health insurance market for millions of consumers. Starting Jan. 1, the federal healthcare law forces insurers to accept all individual applicants regardless of their medical history and provide a comprehensive set of benefits with limits on patients' out-of-pocket spending.
So much for that insurance company clearing house propaganda....

It did happen under the Bush administration...only difference was that the Bush administration circumvented the law by not getting court orders.
June, 2006: George W. Bush on the surveillance program in which the release of classified information on the governments bypassing of banking privacy protections, to tap into international banking records for information about terrorist financing:
"This program has been a vital tool in the war on terror. There can be no excuse for anyone entrusted with vital intelligence to leak it and no excuse for any newspaper to print it."
Treasury Secretary John W. Snow wrote: "In choosing to expose this program, despite repeated pleas from high-level officials on both sides of the aisle, including myself, the Times undermined a highly successful counter-terrorism program and alerted terrorists to the methods and sources used to track their money trails."
A GOP House resolution..... "expects the cooperation of all news media organizations in protecting the lives of Americans and the capability of the government to identify, disrupt, and capture terrorists by not disclosing classified intelligence programs such as the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program."
"The GOP resolution, sponsored by Rep. Michael G. Oxley (Ohio), also states that "the disclosure of the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program has unnecessarily complicated efforts by the United States Government to prosecute the war on terror and may have placed the lives of Americans in danger both at home and in many regions of the world." It "condemns the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by those persons responsible and expresses concern that the disclosure may endanger the lives of American citizens."
GOP Mantra: "Do as we say, not as we do."
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...
Bullshit.
Under Bush intelligence had to originate from overseas, and the communications tapped were not completely domestic, dumbass. Under Bush, the people who killed 3000 Americans, that being the Islamist jihad, were the enemy.
Today, under Obama, the government is spying on Americans and exempting the muslim terrorists, and it is the American people the government is preparing to fight a major war with.

Looks like Obama's terrorist friends in Egypt are going to get kicked out on their asses.

If loving roommates Homer and Realtime decide to get married, they're in for a big shock.

Homer earns the big bucks, but Realtime is busted and living off a smorgasboard of government benefits, including the Earned Income Tax Credit.

All that goes away when they get married.

Not only that, but Realtime will get charged a higher premium for his Medicare coverage because of Homer's income.

Where have you been for the last five or six years? Obama's birth announcement was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961 announcing that a son was to Mr. & Mrs. Barack H. Obama on August 4th. Perhaps you are just having one of those senior moments.
They could just call the newspaper and announce it over the phone, and the newspaper would print it. That was very common then.
So, how long after Obama was born do you think it would take Ann in Kenya to place a call to her mother in the US, and then her mother calls the newspaper and announces the birth?
If you just had a baby in Kenya, do you think you'd be making that call the very next goddam day? Hell, yeah.

The Jerk doesn't know how old he is or when he was born, doesn't know how many States there are in the United States, lies about where and when his parents met and the Africans claim to know where he was born: http://tinyurl.com/ngbqvmf

...and yet the Liberal Media is able to keep this Dumb-As-A-Rock azzhole afloat. And now, some sort of deal has been cut to get a past President with a better image to associate with the Magic Negro to bolster his Dumb-Cluck image. He Has become a smiling storefront mannequin that George Soros carries around in his hip pocket.

Shameful.

We need a President and not a Liberal Media Rock Star.

Hmmm. Well it is hard to tell one Foxbot from another. You obviously agreed with her post so, like it or not, you are painted by the same ignorant brush strokes.

For account and purposes, yes, the Benghazi investigation is going nowhere. It is quite apparent that Issa isn't going to admit any evidence that hinders his witch hunt into the Obama administration....like the military sources that have come forward to say they offered Stevens additional embassy protection and he flatly turned them down. Issa and the Republican opposition are left with egg on their faces....as usual.

Chasm widens sucking in the right wing nuts and Teabaggers alike. Traditionalist conservatives are spitting out the poisonous Tea.
Democrats and republican moderates have joined forces. Sweeping aside the Tea Party and the right wing nuts. In all places, Arizona! A previous bestial of the Tea Party.
Between them both they actually came to a budget with bipartisan support. On June 13, 2013 Governor Jan Brewer {R} Led the way that will add over 300,000 of their uninsured citizens to the roles of the insured. Embracing the Obamacare Health Care Plan.
Governor Jan Brewer gathered up her allies and repulsed themselves from the intoxicated Teabaggers and their minions. Carrying it so far as not to answerer any of the Tea and right wing nuts questions and shooting down any of their proposals.
Obamacare exposed the rift that is growing into a chasm where the Tea and the right wing nuts are being pushed into.
Their Senate President Andy Biggs {R} who was a staunch opponent to the Obamacare was swept aside. All these right wing nuts and the Teabaggers, had to say , was similar to what we find on these threads. Right wing nuts and Teabaggers, Constant redundant dysfunctional rhetoric and derogatory remarks. No substance or valid argument. Sputtering and babbling.. Now we know where these urchins get their cue’s from. Rushing Foxes with their Pied Piper’s melodies of “A La Propaganda.”
The chasm widens..

Southern States Are Pushing Themselves Deeper Into Poverty By Voting Republican

The concept of what is considered good news is definitely one of perception and relative to prior conditions the good news is compared to. There was, depending on perspective, a bit of good news for the state of Mississippi this past week, but in relative terms, there is very little for residents, especially children, to celebrate. However, the news should hearten Republicans in Mississippi, and in Congress, because it is further proof their attempt to drive more Americans into poverty and despair is a raging success and they can revel in the news that a rash of other, mostly poor Republican-controlled, Southern states are falling deeper into poverty and it must make Republicans giddy that the greatest amount of their policies’ damage is affecting children they have shown nothing but contempt for over the past four-and-a-half years.

First, the good news for Mississippi is that the most Christian state in the nation is no longer the worst state for children to live. According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation that compiles state-by-state statistics on the well-being of children and families in its’ Kids Count Index, after 24 years as the worst state in the nation for children, Mississippi jumped to number 49 overall as New Mexico took over the bottom spot. In January 2013, new state-level data on Medicaid and food-stamp enrollment released by Kaiser Health showed that, unless one is a Republican, there is very little to celebrate because the data provided a very depressing picture for child poverty in the richest nation on the face of the Earth, and it is all according to Republicans’ plans. Doubtless Republicans are cheering the unfathomably bad news for the nation’s children, and Republicans in the bottom five states can celebrate their success at creating a bleak existence for their state’s children.

....The bottom five states are rounded out by Louisiana, Nevada, and Arizona and each of the five worst states for children have specific commonalities contributing to the bleak prospects for the survival, let alone well-being, of the poorest residents and their children. All of the states, save New Mexico, enacted right to work (for less) laws that contribute to more people in poverty due to pathetic wages while corporations in each state are thriving with record profits. Two of the states, Mississippi and Louisiana, have rejected Medicaid expansion regardless there is no expense to the states until 2017 and then the maximum cost for Mississippi in particular is only 7.6% with the federal government picking up the remaining 92.4% of the expense. In all, there are 13 states not participating in the free expansion and 6 others leaning toward non-participation and to no-one’s surprise, all 19 states are Republican-controlled and more than pleased to prevent millions of their residents, especially children, from benefiting from the most basic healthcare provisions. From a Republican perspective, it likely makes sense to keep the poorest, and youngest, residents in ill-health to go along with daily hunger to round out an existence steeped in suffering and despair.

All of the states, not just the worst for children, are in line for a dose of despair courtesy of House Republicans as they continue to oppose the President’s call to expand early childhood education while they seek new and clever ways to slash education spending. Coupled with cuts to school lunches, food stamps, and health programs, Republicans have put children on par with the ever-growing list of Americans they will either see go hungry, work for poverty wages, or suffer from ill-health to complete their Draconian attack on the nation’s most vulnerable citizens.
