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

Lord Obama flies to Europe in his pair of private 747's to preach about how global warming is gonna kill us all unless we tax the hell out of rich white guys (particularly ones that run Evil Corporations).

Anybody still noticing we're above 7.5% unemployment FOR MORE THAN FOUR AND A HALF YEARS?
Anybody still paying attention that we don't have answers on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, etc.?
Lord Obama is a master at redirection. And his Useful Idiots, the Socialist/Democrat voters with their gnat-sized attention spans and miniscule IQ's are always there for him.
OBAMA IS USEING MARTIN/ZIMMERMAN SO THAT THE PEOPLE WILL GET OFF HIS ASS

Its obvious to everybody else that just a black guy getting elected POTUS was enough to drive the racism that's been simmering just under the surface into the full light of day.
It takes two to tango. He couldn't inflame a "race war" without racists.
Yesterday's speech was completely unnecessary.

If the demonstrators were listening, Obama was trying to tell them that it was over, that no federal charges would be approved.

But he lacks the leadership to say so directly.

So, cities across the country will be disrupted for nothing.

“I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?” the president questioned Socratically.“And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman, who had followed him in a car, because he felt threatened?”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style...
Unfortunately, this president, as usual, didn't know what he was talking about. The Stand Your Ground law wasn't introduced in this case.

Maybe if he would learn the facts before he speaks, he'd be a little more credible.

If he wants to make the issue about changing this law in 20 states, then he should speak directly about doing that. But to tie that issue in with this case where it doesn't belong and speaking out of turn, he just creates more confusion and anger.

How Florida's Racist Past Helped Kill Trayvon
The state's black history provides clues to why George Zimmerman confronted the unarmed teen.
http://www.theroot.com/views/how-floridas-rac...
Violating George Zimmerman's Civil Rights, George Zimmerman was mulishly slandered, MSNBC altering news report, railroading George Zimmerman for money, power and ratings...

George is NOT the poster boy of racism!!

George Zimmerman will be a very rich man when he gets done with his winning lawsuit against MSNBC, Al Sharpton and your demokkkratic Party...

Go George!!!

It's the culture...

There are plenty of white men who are looked at with suspicion by other whites because they emit a sense of being suspicious.
Ignorance doesn't have a race or color. Self-pride doesn't either. Each one of us has control over one of them. There's nothing any of us can do about the other.
Fortunately, ignorance only exists in a small minority.
Why focus on what can't be changed and, instead, on what can?
Most Americans want unity. It's people like Al Sharpton who don't. Ever thought about that?
So the colored people need to just settle down and quit bein' all uppity and such?

I know. But you can't mention anything complicated like "underemployment" or how the rate doesn't include those that have given up or simply transitioned into permanent Social Security "disability" because it hurts the tiny brains of the S/D readers on this forum.

You got that right and that is obivious what Jessie Jackson Sr., Al Shartpon and the NAACP are doing encouraging a race war but what is BS is that you never heard a word from either the Jessie Jackson Sr., Al Shartpon or the NAACP or Coverage like the National News Media did of the George Zimmerman Trial when the trial began over Christopher Cervini who was a White 16 year old from Greece NY that was shot and killed with his brother beside him by a black man named Roderick Scott who came out of his house with gun in his hand and he was in fear of his life he claimed and the Christopher Cervini again who was white did not even touch Roderick Scott and Roderick Scott was found not guilty.

Bloated city governments will go bankrupt, because they lack the taxing power of state and federal government. When people leave and property values drop, the party is over.
Great opportunity, but with lots of pain along the way. No pain, no gain.
I think we're seeing it happen in Detroit, organic revolution is the revolution that will stick. While the city government is battling its fiscal issues I'm hoping that private investors will start offering services the city has to cut or suspend. Maybe the community will form co-ops to replace lost services.

Gonna keep an eye on it. I'm scheduled for New York next spring but I'm trying to finagle a project just outside of Detroit, last time I was there for four months. I can get the view from the ground. Besides, there's this awesome Romanian grill downtown.

Discipline and love go hand in hand. Discipline has to be fair and consistent with more love to balance it out.

Many liberal children have no idea if they're loved or not because no one cares to teach them boundaries and what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviors in society. So they push the envelope as far as it will go out of sheer frustration and anger.

The increasing violence in the public schools is the only place you have to look to understand this.

Children are much smarter than liberals when it comes to knowing the importance of discipline. Trust me. They respect adults who do and test those who don't - to the limit.

Demokrats voted for the winner obama and Eric Holder and still lost making than a bigger loser and sold out idiots..

DOJ Eric Holder and Obama will NOT pursue civil rights violations against Zimmerman.

Eric Holder and a sellout Obama are just talking bullshit, selling out, making idiots out of the likes of demokrats Sharpton, Jesse and gang for money, power and votes. Fodder for the hate mongers and Race Pimps Profiteers and welfare vote.

Obama's speech was all about Race Profiteering and TV talk.

Most of what the federal government does is either unnecessary or flat out wrong or illegal. Why do y'all only squawk when Obama does it?
