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

Barack Hussein Obama The Worst President

We are now nearly five years into the Age of Obama, and I think pretty much everyone understands that, economically speaking, the record is poor. If you think UNPRECEDENTED LEVELOS of unemployment and poverty, declining labor force participation, booming food stamp use and so on are the signs of a healthy economy, then you should be satisfied with the Obama administration. Otherwise, not.

It must have hurt the New York Times to report this, but report it they did:“Many Rival Nations Surge Past the U.S. in Adding New Jobs.”

[C]ontrary to the widespread view that the United States is an island of relative prosperity in a global sea of economic torpor, employment in several other nations has bounced back more quickly, according to a new analysis by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Where might that “widespread view” have come from? The Times takes no responsibility.

The government reported Friday that the nation added 175,000 jobs in May, continuing a 32-month run of job gains. The unemployment rate moved up slightly to 7.6 percent, from 7.5 percent in April.

But overall employment in the United States remained 2.1 percent below where it was at the end of 2007, according to the statistics bureau. By comparison, over the same period, between December 2007 and March 2013, the number of jobs was up 8.1 percent in Australia; Germany, the biggest economy in the troubled euro zone, has managed a 5.8 percent gain in employment.

“The United States is way below where it should be,” said Lawrence F. Katz, a professor of economics at Harvard.“We had a massive downturn and a tepid recovery.”

The Times offers several possible explanations for our poor performance, while avoiding the MOST OBVIOUS one: WE HAVE AN UTTERLY INEPT GOVERNMENT, WHICH, ON TOP OF ITS INCOMPETENCE, PLACES LITTLE VALUE ON ECONOMIC GROWTH.

As the Times acknowledges, the U.S.’s economic performance over the last five years has been awful compared with that of Germany or Australia.

But let’s stay closer to home: how have we done compared with Canada and Mexico?

Canada has historically been both more liberal and poorer than the United States.

Yet in the last few years, WITH A CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT IN POWER, THE AVERAGE CANADIAN HAS BECOME WEALTHIER THAN THE AVERAGE AMERICAN, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY.

Mexico is, of course, a complete mess, with drug cartels massacring people in the streets. Yet the Mexican government, despite that country’s largely socialist roots, consumes less of Mexico’s wealth than our own governments (federal, state and local) do of America’s GDP.

Obama has done far more to combat terrorism that did Bush-Cheney who were both asleep at the wheel. And you are a total idiotic little fat girl.
Obama has installed radical Islamist governments in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Yemen, and is working on the same for Syria.

Radical Islamist governments that provide safe harbor for terrorists.

It would seem to me that Trevon was far more suited for the stand your ground law than was Zimmerman. So Trevon stood his ground and the pursuer shot him...Go figure.

It's Jeff Daniels, and the character is loosely connected to Chris Matthews, who is a consultant on the show and his son is in it.
So, what are you saying? Are you in agreement with that segment of the show? If so, you are coming to the realization that it is you and people of your ilk that he is speaking about. You do get that, don't you?
Or, perhaps you don't.
I spent hours finally convincing DBWriter that Google had not in fact put Hugo Chavez on their site on Mother's day but in fact it was Cesar Chavez and it was Easter. You have to start to wonder when these idiots post the exact wrong information as posted on rightwing sites.

Probably safe to assume Batty got 'Jeff Bridges' from some rightwing site and we'll spend the next couple of hours trying to convince her otherwise.

<quoted text>Rand Paul, like his father , is a political opportunist. Rand Paul knows full well that Congress can cut off military and/or foreign aid any time it wants to without the President's agreement. Rand Paul would rather get Brownie points with FoxNews viewers for criticizing President Barack Obama on making the decision to continue aid to the Egyptian government after the Morsi removal from power than get up in front of Congress and call for a cutting off of military aid funding for Egypt. Rand Paul is too much of a coward to stand up in Congress and defend his libertarian principles with actions. He needs to take a lesson from a Senator like William Borah. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Borah
The liberaltarian on here, Tenzing, said he voted for Ron Paul.

Can't get anymore liberal than Tenzing even though he's a libertarian.

Confusing, I know.

Politics: Liberals wet themselves celebrating Jeff Daniels's America-hating video

Published by: Dan Calabrese on Friday December 14th, 2012

By DAN CALABRESE - "We're not greatest country in the world anymore."

"It's not brand new. It was posted on You Tube in June. But it's seems to be getting a lot of viral attention today for some reason - being celebrated as a riveting and honest art form or whatever. If you've just eaten, be sure you're near a bathroom before you click".

You're Dumb and dumber!!!!! Jeff Daniels!!!!!!!!!

The burden of proof is on the prosecution, except when race pimps like Obama and Sharpton turn the system on its head.

If Zimmerman were black and Martin white; he would have been arrested immediately and held without bail.
And Fox News would probably have a countdown clock: days until Zimmerman is jailed. There would be a rightwing outcry for the death penalty as well.
