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 ...

Gee, the list goes on and on. Give me a minute. There's a lot more.
But it most definitely can get worse than Cheney and Quayle who were guided by their convictions. You just didn't like their convictions.
Give me convictions even if I disagree over the above list any day.
Amusing lack of grasp on history and recent politics.
Your counterproductive posts, if anyone actually read them, over the years, would have elected President Obama :-)

Rand Paul: American Neocons Want To Send Egypt More Of ‘Your’ Money

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/r...

neocons....

Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said U.S. assistance should be used “as leverage” to press the military to pursue a quick transition to a civilian government.

“At the end of the day, while we have already made some obligations on that $1.4 billion, by no means have we made the overwhelming amount of that obligation,” Menendez said on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”“This is an opportunity to have a pause and say to the Egyptians, you have an opportunity to come together. You have to have the military understand that that’s what we are looking for.”

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the ranking Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, cautioned against rushing into discussions about aid.

“There will be plenty of time to asses the aid issue,” Corker said on “Fox News Sunday,” later adding,“Trying to jump to what we are going to do relative to support at this moment is not the place that we need to be.”

Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) said on the same program:“I think on a practical basis we have to look and ask a very simple question: Will cutting off aid accelerate or enhance the opportunities and the chances to have a truly Democratic government? I don’t think so.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) called the military in Egypt the “one stable factor there.” The military “should continue to be rewarded” for its stabilizing presence, Rogers said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Zimmerman claimed in his recorded confession or statements from that night that, Trayvon saw his gun & reached for it. If the gun is holstered in an internal holster, on ones back right side as Zimmerman stated &, Trayvon is straddling Zimmerman who by his accounts was on his back &, Trayvon was banging his head on the sidewalk as Zimmerman claimed. How could Trayvon have seen something in the dark while straddling Zimmerman if the gun was already hard to see &, the gun would've been behind Trayvon? I could believe your demeanor if you hadn't already confessed to being scared of going to the hood, tough guy! Not!
None of this matters.

The prosecution has failed to prove the elements of the crime charged beyond a reasonable doubt.

Not even close.

First, I wouldn't have started my administration with a bunch of neo-cons who had no knowledge of the Middle East but were determined to reshape it
2. I wouldn't have staffed my administration with a bunch of yes man, sycophants patting each other on the back, and telling them how smart they are.
3. I would have listened to the numerous Intel briefs from the NSA, CIA & FBI how dangerous Osama bin Laden & al Qaeda are.
4. I would have listened and demanded action when told by the CIA that Osama bin Laden was determined to attack the U.S.
5. I would have put the country on heightened alert when warned of an impending attack on the U.S. by al Qaeda
6. I would have redouble efforts by my intel agencies to gather more intel
7. I would have directed by FBI director and AG to stop focusing on prostitution/drug enforcement and concentrate on anti-terrorism activities
8. If my FBI director ignored warning and requests to investigate odd behavior of Middle Eastern men at flight schools he would have been canned
I WOULDN'T HAVE GONE ON A 30 DAY VACATION AFTER ONLY 7 MONTHS IN OFFICE
I don't think President Clinton went on vacation--maybe he did. But the rest of President Clinton's down-falls, I agree with. I best check on his vacation time.
I guess you may be correct: Following attacks on U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, President Clinton took time from a trip to Martha's Vineyard to order cruise missile strikes against presumed Al Qaeda targets, subsequently facing some criticism for launching attacks from the comfortable confines of the island.

Please tell us what fucking budgets you're talking about.
We haven't even had a goddam budget since Obama took office, idiot. That's our biggest problem.

And, you haven't got a clue about inflation. How about you put some numbers in your post to back your bullshit up.

Price of milk in 2008 was ________.
Price of milk today is _________.

If you're satisfied with negligible GDP growth and increased part-time low-wage employment with reduced full-time high-wage employment, then Obama is your man.

"The cyber threat is clearly escalating," they say.

"The unprecedented sophistication and reach of recent cyber attacks demonstrate that malicious actors have the ability to compromise and control millions of computers that belong to governments, private enterprises and ordinary citizens worldwide."

Ball and Waters say that in some cases cyber specialists would be able to use wireless to directly engage the electronic systems of enemy weapons, including the controls of an attacker's combat aircraft. Investigators have said he had realized he was flying too slow and too low, and tried to abort the landing and go back up in the air, but he failed.

They could penetrate the firewalls protecting the avionics systems of these aircraft to insert Trojan horse viruses.

"This would conceivably allow Australian cyber specialists to effectively hijack adversary aircraft, and to choose between hard or soft landings for them."

I know some people get very angry with people who just come right out with the truth because it hurts so much.

But "honesty" is one of my middle names right before "speed" and "rhythm".

I'm just trying to help you face it.

How do you ever establish convictions if you don't think about what you think is correct. Never mind--You are a loon o tic-no convictions -just go with whatever O'bama says. One thing for sure-O'bama has one conviction-Destroy America--whoops whoops... fundamentally change America. America is such a horrible country to O'bama.

Boy you people can't make up your minds.
Actually, wish "Washington insiders" would replace Valerie Jarrett so at least this president will know what's going on.

Overprotective moms have very limited perspective especially when it comes to their only child and considering, according to the NYT, she had no experience being on the national stage.

Which would fit her too - stage mom. You know how tunnel-visioned they can be even if it's to their own child's detriment.
