Barack Obama, our next President

Racism is just a form of ignorance, it isn't white or black. Obviously there are some uneducated and very disturbed individuals on this site. I would suggest you to direct your anger to their stupidity rather than skin color. It doesn't accomplish anything to use racist rhetoric to respond to racism.

So do you think the mayor of San Diego, a confessed sex pervert, should stay in office? Just trying to gauge your liberalness.
Are you aware the New York Times called Valerie Jarrett "the other half of Obama's brain"? Does that mean she gave the directive to go after his enemies because she's very protective, too?
HEY STUPID! Mayor Filner is accused of sexual harassment not any kind of perversion. That was the same thing that Herman Cain was accused of during the primaries and you defended him calling his accusers "gold diggers". Your hypocrisy is showing again Carol as well as your ignorance.

In Detroit: Poverty level 36.2% compared to a statewide level of 15.7. Murder rate 11 times that of New York City. Unemployment rate above 18%, more than double the national average. Detroit Public Schools under emergency management since 2008.$327 million budget deficit and estimated $14 billion in long-term debt primarily driven by unfunded pension and retirement health care obligations.
But get this...
After living in Democrat-inflicted misery for fifty years, on Nov. 6, Barack Obama received 98% of the vote. On the same night Detroit voters elected a convicted felon, Brian Banks, to serve in the state legislature. Other election results show overwhelming margins of victories for Detroit Democrats as well.
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/arnold-ahlert/ho...
That, my friends, is why democrats are going to destroy this country - sooner rather than later.
Time to wise up.
Okay, that's it.
Wrong again nitwit! Detroit's problems stem from a decline in the tax base. This happened when the auto industry moved out of the city and into the suburbs and it's middle class employees followed them. Detroit was simply too dependent on one industry. Let's also remember that many of the city's pension funds were heavily invested in mortgage backed securities and other unregulated derivatives rated AAA by agencies like Moody's and Standard and Poor's who were paid by the same companies they were rating. This has nothing to do with Democratic policy but keep on thinking that if you want.

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

Featured Sexual Democratic Predators.

Why in God's name would you defend such a vile predator as Bob Filner??

March 29, 2006 Rep. Bob Filner voted against tough sentences for sexual abusers of children on two occasions. The first time Filner was in the extreme minority of 34 House members to vote against the ?Two Strikes and You?re Out? Child Protection Act in 2002. The second time Filner voted no on a bill to put repeat sexual predators behind bars for life when the crime was committed on federal property. It seems obvious that every public leader should protect children from sexually violent predators, but the cold hard truth is that Bob Filner has not done so.

It's the culture...

WERE IS THE FBI wrote:
The New Black Panther Party is offering a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, and yes, that’s “dead or alive.”
A video from CNN showing a handful of military-attired members of the New Black Panther Party has been making rounds on the blogosphere this week, and several Party spokespeople have issued statements on the controversial George Zimmerman verdict.
In the video above, spokesman Mikhail Muhammad offers $10,000 “for the capture of George Zimmerman. We’re going to force our government to do their job properly, and if they don’t we will.”
Muhammad also claimed that the Party is receiving monetary support from athletes and celebrities.
“We’re saying to President Obama, you gotta do your job on this one buddy… So white America, we have given you 400 years to get it right and you still have failed black people. We’re not even citizens in this country. We’re still third class citizens. Today as black men, we must stand up. We must say to white America,‘Your time is up.’”
New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz also sounded off on the verdict early this week, saying that George Zimmerman “will always be hunted and hated like the villain that he is and the demon that he is to many.”
“Those jurors were making a direct statement to black America, and they were telling us that,‘We are in fear of the black male, fear of the black man and fear of the Trayvon Martins and we are going to maintain this first, the right of us to kill you n****r,’” he said.
Some leaders of the New Black Panther Party have also called for violence against white people, though these threats have turned up empty thus far. Still, critics charge the New Black Panther Party for spreading racial hatred and encouraging minorities to engage in violent acts against “White America.”
But the New Black Panther Party maintains that “Black America” is on the defensive.“It was really some white jurors on that jury telling black people,‘To hell with you and to hell with your children,’” Shabazz said of the George Zimmerman verdict.
Offering a monetary reward for a citizen who is currently not charged with a crime is considered a felony in most states.
Update: A reader pointed out that the video above is actually a year old. This is true, though it is going viral and circulating on the blogosphere again this week as stated. Consequently, the line reading “they hope to offer a reward of $1 million for Zimmerman’s capture by next week” has been removed. Comments from Shabazz on the verdict were made this week, audio of which you can listen to here.http://www.inquisitr.com/ 856630/new-black-panthers-offe r-10k-for-george-zimmerman-cap ture-video/
as long as we have a racist occupying the presidents office and a racist head of the justice dept. Nothing will be done. But don't worry about the little black kittens. There nothing more than loud mouth street punks Shitbazz has no reach outside the projects he sells crack to kids in.

Once there though, its all about the next election and who's gonna fund it. You and Carol aren't gonna fund it, not to any significant degree so I guess its gonna be agribusiness, big sugar, financials, and big oil.

We've all heard this right-wing trope. That fact is the Lifeline Program was started in 1985 and expanded to pre-paid cell phones in 2005.

Now class, who can tell me who was President in 1985 and 2005 and wtf does that have to do with Obama?

The wingnuts won't read this but others may be interested:

Disclaimer: This is not an endorsement of the program so don't waste your time, I just like to illuminate the lies the right-wingers need to support their fckd up "ideology".

Stossel said the other night the similarities between the Roman Empire before it fell and what's going on in our own country are eerily similar. Higher taxes, bigger government, abuse of power, moral decay...
But he did say things are quite as bad as that here yet. He guesstimated another 18 years...kind of jokingly...I think.
Sure Carol but your outrage is only when a Democrat gets caught. Where was it when Mark "Appalachian Trail" Sanford was elected to Congress. Call me crazy but I think that cheating on your wife is more serious than some unwelcome hugs or suggestive remarks. As you recall you defended Herman Cain when he was accused of the same thing. He not only sexually harassed women but also had an extra marital affair.
Yeah I just love it when fools like you blame the fall of the Roman Empire on "moral decay" when the fact is that it was at that time firmly under Christian control. There is however a parallel , Rome let its infrastructure; roads bridges and aqueducts deteriorate. It's the GOP that's been blocking any funding to repair ours and it's not getting any less expensive to deal with. That will be our downfall if we don't deal with it soon.

as far as the eye can see this morning...there is an overwhelming opinion concerning.....

Success for President Obama in Talking Trayvon Martin

President Obama surprised the White House press corps today when he dropped into the daily briefing to deliver remarks in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in Trayvon Martin’s killing. Alongside the week-long calls by many on the left for the President to personally address the issue, there had been hand-wringing on the right that whatever he could say would only further inflame the already impassioned and polarizing topic. So with whatever breath they could gather after reportedly greeting the President’s entrance with “woah!”, the press waited anxiously to hear the message he would deliver.

And the President nailed it.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/succes...

that opinion is overwhelming the 'opinion' coming from the right wing media.

you conservatives might as well realize that the voice of your media is one that is usually ignored, if not ridiculed, by the majority of Americans. we all realize that you think that people should just 'know all about Obama', but what they know to be the truth is not what is invented by the right wing media.

though that i must explain to some what we all learned in the last election speaks volumes to the fantasy world the right wing media has created, and the fantasy world that some wish to live in.

President Obama did something Friday that he hardly ever does — and no other president could ever have done. He addressed the racial fault lines in the country by laying bare his personal anguish and experience in an effort to help white Americans understand why African-Americans reacted with frustration and anger to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

....It is a great thing for this country to have a president who could do what Mr. Obama did on Friday. It is sad that we still need him to do it.

Although his apparently unscripted comments in the White House press briefing room drew scorn and even accusations of racism from some on the right, he was right to try to lay out a constructive, nonpolitical path forward. It would have been a missed opportunity—a huge missed opportunity—if America had not heard firsthand from its first black president at a moment like this.

“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” Obama said, an arresting start to 19 minutes of reflections unique in the nation’s history.

Obama: Trayvon Martin Could Have Been Me

....Some commentators asked, afterward, if Obama was putting himself in the middle of a case where he didn’t belong. But his voice does belong in it, as many more voices do. Messages about not belonging have haunted this case from the beginning. When the police found Trayvon Martin’s dead body, they at first accepted not only that he didn’t belong in the neighborhood but that he didn’t belong anywhere, or with anyone; his parents had to come looking for him the next day, after an night of uncertainty, only to be pointed to his body. But he belonged anywhere in America, as the teen-ager he was and the adult he could have been.

President Obama speaks up for Trayvon Martin

....I was in the briefing room when the president said these words, and I will admit to a welling of the eyes. One of the reasons President Bill Clinton is so popular among blacks is because he spoke to them and about them in ways that were knowing. To have a president who looks like me and has lived the same experience I have and to say so before the nation was as overwhelming as it was historic.

But Obama wasn’t just talking to me or fellow African Americans. He was talking to all Americans.
