Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

You mean the Mark Sanford who pushed for an amendment to promote economic development in the underserved region of the Appalachian Regional Commission because of excessive waste and duplication and who cheated on his wife like Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy?
Guess you'd have no problem with the mayor of your city groping and tongue kissing your wife on the street and confessing he had a problem and "needed help" and would fight to keep him in office.
You are one of the reasons I fear for this country.
Haven't you left yet?

Ya know, if you move out of the country you can still get your social security checks. That stipend goes a long ways in under-developed/developing countries.

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).

Then he comes back and starts whipping up the Useful Idiots over racism and the Martin/Zimmerman fiasco.

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.

The sad reality is that if Farm State Republicans voted against farm subsidies, the Democrats would use that as a club to drive them from office.
Nothing is likely without strong bipartisan agreement on a range of subsidies affecting both sides of the fence.
So both criminal enterprises need to join together to, as Carol would put it, destroy this country!

Regardless of who started this, the program is abusive and should be ended. Except maybe cell phones that can only call 9-1-1.
But why do y'all call it "Obamaphone" and wait 'til the black guy's elected POTUS to even become aware of it then harp on it constantly?

<quoted text>So by your understanding, I should look at all white people like racist for the ignorance of some. Is that what you're saying? I should definitely look at you like a racist, given the fact that all your role models were self proclaimed racist!, right?
No, I'm saying you should conduct yourself in your actions and appearance that demand respect.

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?

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.

You notice it's only republicans who get raked over the coals for alleged inappropriate conduct even if it can't be proven. And many of them step down voluntarily or under pressure from other republicans.
But Clinton, Weiner, Spitzer, Frank and Filner - just to name a few off the top of my head - are defended to the teeth by liberals and remain in office untouched or are reelected.
Can brainwashed people be any more clueless? No, guess they can't. Nevermind.
Liberals defend theirs and you defend yours. That's the reality not the Fox spin.

I hadn't read that far down, that was funny.
In my discussion with Galt I'm liking the idea of bloated city governments going bankrupt, maybe that's what the libertarian revolution will look like.
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.

The actual unemployment rate is something like 15% to 17%. The statistics don't include those who stopped looking and applying for benefits. That number is in the millions.

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.
