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

Yes, we should have had a better strategy in the event of a strong resurgence by Saddam's thugs and al-Qaeda making Iraq the frontlines. But the initial mission was, in fact, accomplished, and there are no crystal balls in war. Even Obama was forced to admit in an interview with O'Reilly the surge worked.
But Obama's early withdrawal of all troops in Iraq just threw all our precious blood and treasure right out the window.
Certes, nous avons été attaqués par 20 Saoudiens et un Yéménite. C'est pourquoi nous avons envahi l'Irak pendant 11 ans et de 3000 $ milliards de dollars. Je suis surpris que tu n'as pas épousé un Texan à la place d'un bretzel saleman à Disneyworld?

The census?
Tea baggers think that's rigged.
You are correct. The 30 million illegal aliens here were counted just like everyone else who is here legally. So, the population of citizens in the United States is more like 280 million, which puts the real unemployment rate at about 20 percent.

BLS and the goddam census, dumbass. Go there and check it out.
How about we look at some numbers.
316 million total population.
86.4 million under 20.
40.5 million over 65.
1.6 million disabled.
21 million in universities.
130 million full time jobs.
8.2 million part time jobs.
The ratio of full time to part time jobs is 15.8.
Your economic recovery is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.
The real percentage of people available for work but not working is 17 percent.
The annual deficit is 1.3 trillioin, down from 1.6 trillion it grew to before the TEA Party came to Congress in 2011.
The total debt is 17 trillion. The US economy is only 15 trillion.
The debt grows at 8 percent each year, while the calculated economic growth is only 2 percent. The real (private) economy that actually pays for everything is stagnant, and is only about 12 trillion.
So, the debt is one and a half times as big as what pays it.
And, the debt grows at almost 8 percent a year.
A stagnant economy has to pay a debt that is one and a half times its size and grows at 8 percent every year.
An idiot can tell you this system will collapse. What we need to do to fix it is to stop borrowing money. That is the 1.3 trillion dollars every year.
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
There are 1 million fewer PT jobs in June of 2013 as there was in Nov of 2009. BLS jobs reports. Makes you wrong.

Bush grew the debt 85% over 8 years. You Tea Party morons didn't give a rat's ass.

Somehow in all that Batty blather, you forget who gave out the fraudulent info on al qaeda links, mushroom clouds, WMD, etc., and sent us headlong into the Iraq debacle of attacking a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein..." Now just who could that failure of a president and spiritual human being could that have been?

You are the moron, liar:

In June, the household survey reported that part-time jobs soared by 360,000 to 28,059,000 - an all time record high. Full time jobs? Down 240,000. And looking back at the entire year, so far in 2013, just 130K Full-Time Jobs have been added, offset by a whopping 557K Part-Time jobs.

The reality of Obamacare will hit when your daughter needs surgery and her bank account reads zero.
I remember the bad days before Food Stamps, there was Surplus Food. Once a month your mom would head down to a garage and pick up boxes of government food like powdered milk & canned “luncheon meat.” Of course, that wasn’t ALL you ate — these programs have always been supplemental, there to make sure families got enough. In fact, most of it was the last thing you ate. The milk was gross — nearly impossible to fully mix, so you always wound up with powdery globs in the glass and glop at the bottom of the pitcher. The “meat” was worse, tasting mostly of salt.

Anyway, the luncheon meat didn’t last forever: America progressed to Food Stamps; you used them to buy the same food as everyone else, though you had to put up with the shame of handing over the coupons in lieu of cash at the register. When you got sent to the corner store to buy a gallon of milk, you tried to talk your mom into giving you some cash instead of stamps to pay for it.

Thing is, if times are hard enough that your mom has swallowed her pride to go on welfare in the 1st place, then money is always tight. You don’t take vacations like other kids; you wear Wrangler jeans, not Levi’s. You have to convince your mom you really, really want that copy of Giant-Sized X-Men No. 1 before she’ll shell out the 50 cents.

And when you need your 1st pair of glasses you find that Medicaid won’t pay for the cool frames you want, so you’re stuck with the dorky plastic ones. Live with it. You learn early on not to ask for stuff that the family just can’t afford, but it eats at you, month after month, year after year. It’s not that life is BAD; you still get a childhood because your mom’s determined that you will. And you have some neat stuff.(That’s why, years later, you don’t begrudge any mom who wants her kids to have something nice though you wonder about the designer sneakers and iPhones.)

Anyway, the lessons sink in: You get pretty determined not to ever need help, and damned reluctant to ask for anything that resembles it. Because the flip side of shame is PRIDE — pride that you can do it yourself, and you will. And you do.

But then we Democrats institutionalized poverty and made it a career choice.

So, skip ahead a few decades; you’re with your wife in the maternity ward at New York-Presbyterian after a C-section, sharing a room with a very sweet 20-something we’ll call Sheré.

You’re there because you’ve got good health insurance & the wife determined it was the best place in the city to give birth. But it takes a couple of days to get a private room, so you get to chat with Sheré, who says she means to become a pediatric brain surgeon someday, though she has to get her GED 1st.

You can’t resist asking Sheré how she can afford such an expensive hospital. Sheré laughs,“I’m not paying for this — I’ve got Medicaid.”

She had her first 3 kids (different fathers; the latest, whom she met in the shelter, is still with her, but home keeping an eye on the other children) in a Bronx hospital. But, she proudly explains, she finally figured out that she could walk in anywhere, and they had to take her. So there she is.

Actually she’s been at NY Presbyterian for a month; the doctors decided she was high-risk (she’d tested positive for cannabis before she knew she was pregnant), so they’ve had her staying there to be safe.

What galls is the assumption — the carefully honed, relentless message — that there’s nothing wrong with taking all this. It’s not charity, JUST THE WAY THINGS WORK. Nothing to be ashamed of.

And no reason, either, to sweat to build real reasons for pride. Hey, we’ve all got self-esteem now thanks to Democrats. NO ONE has to work harder than anyone else or make better choices, because everything should be REDISTRIBUTED to be fair. Just ask my good friend, Barack Obama. He talks about that all the time.

Obama On Criticisms Of Delaying Employer Mandate:‘I’m Not Concerned’ With Congress’ Opinion
When the interviewer, Jackie Calmes, asked Obama if he was acting within his executive power to unilaterally delay the employer mandate, Obama said he wasn't concerned with Congress' opinion on the matter, alluding to the fact that he is a constitutional lawyer.
"If Congress thinks that what I’ve done is inappropriate or wrong in some fashion, they’re free to make that case," Obama said. "But there’s not an action that I take that you don't have some folks in Congress who say that I'm usurping my authority. Some of those folks think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency. And I don't think that's a secret. But ultimately, I’m not concerned about their opinions -- very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers."

take that! and some of this! and some more of that!
the guy is starting to get pretty good at giving back what he's been getting.
ok FOXbots, start the whine fest even though you assholes have done nothing but put him down for 5 years now; and you'll still act like Obama has no right to throw it back at anyone else.
but at this point...i wouldn't know how to act if you nutjobs didn't do your hypocrisy dance. it's the culture.
Hillary and Bill Clinton are just as nauseating as Huma and Tony Wiener. Two sets of democrats who act identical in life. Perverts, sickos and doormats. Some even say Huma and Hillary had an affair among themselves. Maybe the Clintons and Wieners are liberal swingers. Why would anyone want any of these losers in government?
