Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

The unlikeliest of alliances forged between two once-bitter rivals stands to upend the status quo of congressional gridlock and potentially resolve a bitter partisan chasm that has characterized the modern era of crisis governance.
Yes, President Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) are essentially working together against GOP leadership and the tea party to break the Senate out of its current situation and resolve major budget rifts that have plagued Washington for years.
McCain has emerged as a kingmaker of sorts in a chamber where various rank-and-file members of the Republican minority have lost their patience with leaders’ strategy of routinely blocking or slowing down legislation and high-profile nominees advanced by Democrats.
Most recently, he played a leading role in securing the confirmation of seven Obama nominees to run important departments and agencies. He was a seminal figure in writing and shepherding immigration reform through the chamber with a large bipartisan majority. He’s broken with nearly all other Republicans in saying his party shouldn’t filibuster Obama’s three nominees to fill vacancies on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. And he’s been actively pushing his members to stop blocking budget negotiations with the House.
Now, as the White House and members of Congress prepare for a potentially ugly battle to keep government open and continue paying its bills this fall, Democratic leaders see McCain as a pivotal figure in their effort to reach a compromise and force tea party conservatives to stop holding routine government funding and debt ceiling bills hostage.
“Senator McCain is the Senate Republican leadership’s worst nightmare,” said a senior Democratic aide, who wasn’t authorized to speak on the record.“He is very interested in fixing sequestration, he has railed against the tax loopholes, he is clearly not afraid to defy them when he thinks it’s the right thing to do, and he takes 10 Republican members with him. We definitely see him as an important part of the path forward on a budget deal.”

“The good news is a growing number of Republican senators are looking to join their Democratic counterparts in trying to get things done,” Obama said during a major speech in Galesburg, Ill. aimed at framing the upcoming debates over the budget and debt limit.
At least Sen. Hatch stands with the people: Turning his attention to Obama's newfound interest in resuscitating the nation's economy, Hatch describes the president's recent speeches as "déjà vu all over again. He just can't get away from blaming George Bush and the prior administration for everything.

"How many times have we heard this speech? We’ve certainly heard these failed ideas over and over again over the last four-plus years. They haven't worked, Mr. President. The American people know they haven't worked. The president can travel around and give these campaign speeches and blame Congress all he wants.

"The American people are looking for jobs, not more speeches," Hatch adds. "They're looking for opportunities for themselves and their families, not more speeches. They want to hear solutions and see the economy improve, not more speeches.

"Here we go again. It's good to see the president get back in the game — or at least say he's going to focus on the economy again. The Republicans in Congress have been laser-focused on the economy, so if this is the time the president's going to actually work with us and try some of our ideas, then great. But I'm certainly not optimistic."

Hatch, however, is more upbeat about a plan he and Democratic Sen. Max Baucus of Montana plan to introduce Friday to revamp the nation's byzantine tax code.

The U.S. Department of Education plans to investigate a "Redneck Day" celebration at an Arizona high school that caused a stir among civil rights activists, the Arizona Republic reported Thursday.
Back in May, a student at Queen Creek High School wore a Confederate flag on "Redneck Day," which was part of the school's "spirit week." The student was asked to change his clothing, according to the school's superintendent.
The DOE's Civil Rights office said that the investigation "will be limited to whether a racially hostile environment was created due to language and actions that were not protected by the First Amendment" in the case of the Confederate flag, according to the Arizona Republic.

More Democrat corruption:

Huma Abedin, wife of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner and former deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had 'special government employee status' that enabled her to rake in $135,000 from taxpayers and another $355,000 from a company with former President Bill Clinton as a board member.

fill in the context.

but if you do that you might reveal that one of your peers was all for minority children being abused and then being ignored by a racist LEO. which might lead one to think that you also condone the abuse of small children by trying to play off the context.

but....it's the right wing culture: stop those abortions and then who gives a shit.

it's a real shame you can't hold up the GOP plan for jobs so you can smack Obama around with it.

haven't you heard? jobs are bad if they make Obama look good. so the GOP says: Jobs? Not our problem.

Where is Homey and his propaganda on housing:
Nearly one-third of the homeowners who got help through the government's main foreclosure prevention program are defaulting again on their mortgages, according to a government watchdog's report.

The Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) has worked on 1.2 million mortgage modifications since it started four years ago. Of those, more than 306,000 borrowers have defaulted again on their loans, and another 88,000 are at risk as well, reports CNN.


The Special Inspector for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP), which conducted the review, said homeowners are also more likely to default again on the modified loans the longer they stay in the program, with 46 percent of those involved in the program since 2009 defaulting on their loans again.

The re-defaults have cost taxpayers some $815 million, according to SIGTARP. So far, the Treasury Department has allocated $19.1 billion to HAMP, and $4.4 billion has been spent. The program was recently extended for another two years, until the end of 2015.

The Obama administration's Treasury Department created HAMP to help borrowers avoid foreclosure by making their house payments more affordable through a combination of reduced mortgage principals and interest rates and extended loan terms.

But borrowers are dropping out of the program as they default again on their loans, and SIGTARP Director Christy Romero said Treasury needs to research why so many people drop out of a program that kept their homes safe from foreclosure.

People who default are following "clear patterns," the SIGTARP report found. For example, homeowners most likely to default again are the ones who got the smallest reductions in their mortgages, who were still "underwater" on their mortgages, or who had subprime credit scores and high debt when their mortgages were modified.

*See liberals? you can't give the same dead beats, who were never qualified for housing, to qualify again. CRA screwed all taxpayers. Liberalism never works.

Eric Holder Puts Texas On Notice: Everyone’s Voting Rights Will Be Respected

Of course, Rick Perry, who has previously announced that democracy will no longer be tolerated in Texas, said in a statement,

Once again, the Obama Administration is demonstrating utter contempt for our country’s system of checks and balances, not to mention the U.S. Constitution. This end-run around the Supreme Court undermines the will of the people of Texas, and casts unfair aspersions on our state’s common-sense efforts to preserve the integrity of our elections process.

The Republican Party will learn that the Obama administration will not surrender meekly to its injustices, or to the theft of our precious democracy.

We, as liberal-minded Americans, are fighting for our collective future, for the promise of the Constitution’s promise of the equality of all before the law.

Republicans are fighting for the continuation and re-implementation of white privilege, an artifact not of a modern liberal democracy, but of racial and religious bigotry and hatred – a byproduct of an era -the old Confederacy – long overdue for the dustbin of history.

collective future--that's a nice communist way of putting it.
O'bama and Holder are despots. If I were a Texan, I'd be so livid that I don't think I'd ever get over it. That's not the thing to do, and it just shows how O'bama ignores the law. Of course liberals don't care about the law.
