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

Medical insurance is a product, not to be confused with medical care, and as such is subject to cost-benefit analysis as part of the purchase decision.

So? Is that your worst problem?

<quoted text> The Saigon, South Vietnamese Thieu regime was never dedicated to building a 'Vietnamese liberal middle class' but it was only concerned with retaining its own power and pursue its own private self-interests . The South Vietnamese political regime lost its legitimacy( I doubt if they even had widespread legitimacy) with the Vietnamese people over the long years of the war because it failed as a government to represent and protect the interests of the Vietnamese public.
Interesting subjective diatribe... right out of the system of lies invented by the Democrats about Vietnam.

But, if what you're saying is true, what motivated the South Vietnamese to defeat the single largest communist invasion of the war WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS and control over 90 percent of their country, more than at any other time since Ho Chi Minh divided the country and began invading South Vietnam?

You are saying that nobody was motivated to support the government of South Vietnam throughout the war, right?
Then, who beat the shit out of the NVA in 1972? Aliens from space? That's your only other choice because US ground combat units had been removed from Vietnam the previous year.

Your argument just doesn't hold up in the face of the facts of history.

President Obama has no say as to who will win the nomination. You just make stuff as if you're only talking to the dummy rightwingers; you know, the ones who argued for days that Hitler was democratically elected! OOpppsie! So did you. I forgot.
Obama is in absolute control of the DemoKKKrat Party.

All the Obama fundraising is for his personal political organization, not for the party.

Good. The entire country has been duped... again. Fortunately there is a rule in the Senate to stop the Marxist communist takeover of the country.
I'd like to see the filibuster used continuously until the Senate passes a goddam budget, something we haven't seen since Obama took office.
An idiot can tell you any government that can't even budget itself is certain to collapse.

Galt is convinced more broadly that the 2016 nominee will be an Obama surrogate, Moochelle being only one of several possibilities.

Others include Cory Booker, Deval Patrick, and Eric Holder.

You have a point.
The only way that Obama would allow Hillary to have the nomination would be if she agreed to accept Moochelle as VP.
But why do that when he can just install Moochelle at the top of the ticket?
Hillary/Michelle would win in a landslide. Homer would vote for that ticket.

Obama doesn't need a personal political organization any longer since he won't ever run for office again in his life. Just another loony conspiracy theory.
You're right about one thing though, Obama is the leader of the Democratic party. Who is the leader of the Republican party? That one will keep you busy for a while.

First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday hosted a “Kids’ State Dinner” at the White House. The event honored 54 children who won a national healthy lunch recipe contest associated with Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative.

First lady Michelle Obama speaks at a Kids' State Dinner at the White House on Tuesday. Obama welcomed 54 children to the White House for creating winning recipes as part of a healthy lunch contest.

In some ways the lunch was indeed just like a real state dinner, the first lady noted when greeting the group. Everybody got to go through a reception line. They walked a red carpet past a group of press. They had to wait and wait to get through security.

“It’s a real hassle coming to the White House, isn’t it?” said Mrs. Obama.

But in other ways the lunch was actually better than the nighttime dinners that honor foreign leaders. For one thing, you could eat with your fingers. The first lady, in her remarks, expressly permitted such behavior.

This did not sit well with her husband, who made a drop-by appearance.

“Michelle never said to me I could just pick up something with my fingers at a state dinner. That’s just not fair,” President Obama said, to general hilarity from the 8- to 12-year-old contest winners.

Also, there were balloon animals. A really good balloon person entertained the kids as they filed in. His yellow giraffe was phenomenal.

“I don’t know who’s more popular, Mrs. Obama or the balloon guy,” said Michael Curtin, CEO of DC Central Kitchen and a judge of the recipe contest, prior to the meal.

The food itself was different, too. It was a selection of the winning recipes, one from each state and three US territories. These ran the gamut from “Alaskan Ceviche with Mango” to “Wisconsin Solar Oven-Simmered Chili.”

More than 1,300 children entered the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge contest, which was funded by the food website Epicurious as well as “Let’s Move.” It called for recipes based on the US Department of Agriculture healthy eating guidelines for kids at ChooseMyPlate.gov .

As you might expect, many of the winning recipes are pretty healthy-sounding. Most school lunchrooms don’t feature something called the Bring It On Brussels Sprouts Wrap, invented by 9-year-old Corbin Jackson of South Carolina.

There were lots of lettuce cups. Many winners got their start cooking because they or a sibling has a health challenge that limits their diet.

But gluten-free does not have to mean “tasteless.” Mrs. Obama mentioned that the Fun Mini-Pizza recipe of 10-year-old Olivia Neely of Kansas was so tasty that at least one judge could not believe the crust was made from cauliflower, not flour, and went back to the kitchen to make sure it had been made correctly.
