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 ...

Without the employer mandate, there is no way for ObamaKKKare to determine eligibility for premium subsidies under the individual mandate.

So the ObamaKKKare solution is to allow self-certification without any proof. Pass out the Christmas presents.

What a plan!

Parsing the psychology of the president’s bond with Ms. Jarrett has become something of a West Wing pastime: is she some sort of mother or sister figure to an only child whose own parents variously abandoned him?

The NYT's article goes on to say "After the downgrade in the nation’s debt last year, it was not the Treasury secretary at the president’s side helping map out how to manage the market’s reaction. It was Ms. Jarrett."

New York Times

With Ms. Jarrett’s unquestioning belief in the president has come a tendency to take political criticism personally,“even when it would be more useful not to,” said Marilyn Katz, a Chicago friend of both Ms. Jarrett and the president. Another friend compared her to a mother whose son can do no wrong:“Even when the neighbors call, she says,‘No, no, that can’t be.’”

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/02/us/politics...

She is his TOP advisor, a.k.a. "overprotective mother".

This NYT's article is proving a goldmine.

The other poster is quoting world nut daily and other conspiracy loon sites.
Interesting that the defense keeps playing that 911 call; where we can hear "Georgie" (oh barf), say "these aholes always get away" etc.

So what? Who cares? I suppose you think the republicans should choose the Presidents advisors? Get a grip.

How 'bout The New York Times?
A Chicagoan who helped Mr. Obama navigate his rise through that city’s aggressive politics, Ms. Jarrett came to Washington with no national experience. But her unmatched access to the Obamas has made her a driving force in some of the most significant domestic policy decisions of the president’s first term, her persuasive power only amplified by Mr. Obama’s insular management style.
"She is the single most influential person in the Obama White House,” said one former senior White House official.
She is the guiding hand in everything from who sits on the Supreme Court to who sits next to whom at state dinners. The White House staff memos are peppered with “VJ thinks” or “VJ says.”
Her direct access to the president has at times led to half-baked decision making and unclear lines of authority.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/02/us/politics...
Them's pretty powerful words. Her direct access to the president has "led to unclear lines of authority."
And Homer isn't even sure who she is.
Weren't you people complaining about Washington 'insiders' the first time when Palin was running?

Now it's a 'bad' thing?

Boy you people can't make up your minds.

At least now that Karl Rove is out of the spotlight, he is now free to marry his lover Jeff Gannon Guckert. You know nothing about the real Karl Rove; you probably never gave him a moments thought; afterall, he's a white man.
Every President has a top advisor; so what? What bugs you? That she's a woman? A woman of color? It's not her job to be in the spotlight, and President Obama has his own brain. Perhaps Bush didn't.
why didn't Obammy just appoint Oprah. at least she's been a successful businesswoman, and there would have been at least ONE person as an advisor who'd ever had a real job.

So what! It was Chaney who was Bush's advisor & basically commander & liar, pushing the initiative to invade a sovereign nation that by all accounts was complying with the UN sanctions. So who was really president?

<quoted text>I don't care. We had Cheney as VP, you cannot get any worse than that, well except for maybe Dan Quayle.
Oh, yes, Homer, you CAN get much worse than that.

Rahm "dead fish" Emmanuel.
Tony "jailbird" Rezko.
Bill "domestic terrorist" Ayres.
Van "avowed communist" Jones.
Anita "Mao Tse-Tung admirer" Dunn.
Valerie "slumlord" Jarrett.
Eric "above the law" Holder.
Rev. "blame whitey" Wright.

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.
