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 controversy over George Zimmerman's acquittal for murdering Trayvon Martin is Christmas in July for black conservatives. The professional best black friends for white conservatives who defend George Zimmerman--and by extension the White Right--are in high demand.

As such, Allen West has revealed himself to be a black man who would sell himself into chattel slavery and thank his white owners for the privilege. Shelby Steele, a brilliant man, demonstrates once more that he is psychologically damaged.

Even the D-List backbenchers, as seen in this video from Crooks and Liars, and who are the equivalent of a pee wee baseball league team, are getting a chance to show their teeth and gums as they work on their "self-hating black folks who buck-dance for the pleasures of white conservatives that watch Fox News" dance routine.

Many folks likely believe that these (and other) black conservatives are sincere. Why make such an assumption? In order for a person of color to so betray their community, serving as a human hose who ejaculates and sprays the befouled and racist talking points birthed from the Right-wing echo chamber out of their mouths, on a basic level one must convince him or herself that what they are saying is true.

Yes, money is an inducement for betrayal and foolishness. But, in keeping with my argument that politics is just like professional wrestling--where the latter is actually more honest--a person has to still sell the performance if they want to get repeat work.

Too many Democrats think they're "special". They like to talk the talk but expect others to walk the walk. Same with Obamacare waivers. If you're "special", you are exempt from the "train wreck that's comin'". The same train the rest of us are strapped into.

Dang! What an insightful and intelligent post!
The last paragraph especially: "The only reason they are at war with us is we exist. If we didn't exist, they would be at war with whatever other country occupied our place in the world, which is superior to their place, which is the real reason Islam is at war with everything it is in contact with."
Tenzing and most all liberals forget radical Islam is at war with the entire world. What did some of these other countries do besides join the 21st century?
Islam is a medieval version of racial superiority. That's the problem. You can't negotiate anything with anyone that thinks you are a lesser human than they.
Why everyone hasn't figured this out is beyond me.
The Arabs will be at war with everything until they get rid of their racial superiority attitude.

Bush was looking for a fight from the moment he was elected. Remember his inauguration speech? He was a man obsessed to avenge his father:
"We will confront weapons of mass destruction, so that a new century is spared new horrors."
And he continued to lay the groundwork from there....
February 16 2001:
"Saddam Hussein has got to understand that we expect him to conform to the agreement that he signed after Desert Storm. We will enforce the no-fly zone, both south and north. Our intention is to make sure that the world is as peaceful as possible. And we're going to watch very carefully as to whether or not he develops weapons of mass destruction, and if we catch him doing so we'll take the appropriate action."
February 22, 2001:
"...the primary goal is to make it clear to Saddam that we expect him to be a peaceful neighbor in the region and we expect him not to develop weapons of mass destruction. And if we find him doing so, there will be a consequence."
February 27, 2001:
State of the Union "Our nation also needs a clear strategy to confront the threats of the 21st century -- threats that are more widespread and less certain. They range from terrorists who threaten with bombs to tyrants in rogue nations intent upon developing weapons of mass destruction. To protect our own people, our allies and friends, we must develop and we must deploy effective missile defenses. "
June 12, 2001:
Press Conference with Spanish President Aznar "Those new threats are terrorism, based upon the capacity of some countries to develop weapons of mass destruction, and therefore, hold the United States and our friends hostage."
There are new threats, new forms of terror: cyberterrorism, fundamentalist extremists, extremism that certainly threatens us, threatens Israel, who is our strong ally and friend, threatens Russia. We've got to deal with it. The threat in Europe at sometime, perhaps. We must deal with that issue. And one way to do that is coordinate security arrangements, is to talk about how to -- as to how to deal with the new threats, but also is to be able to have the capacity to rid the world of blackmail, terrorist blackmail"
August 7, 2001:
Press Conference
"As I said, Saddam Hussein is a menace, he's still a menace and we need to keep him in check, and will.
Q Are they ratcheting it up, though? We've had a lot of incidents lately.
THE PRESIDENT: No -- are they, the Iraqis? He's been a menace forever, and we will do -- he needs to open his country up for inspection, so we can see whether or not he's developing weapons of mass destruction."
What? Couldn't be...In August, 2001, the president answered "No" to the question pf whether the Iraqis were "ratcheting" up their development of weapons of mass destruction.
Bush didn't care who was behind 9/11....his obsession with Saddam clouded his judgment. He ignored the intelligence reports and made his decision based on emotion rather than common sense.
https://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/bush/ir...
Yep. That's why so many thought one of his personal goals while in office was to finish what others thought his father should have done.

With that said, it makes a case for bushie boy having let 9/11 occur if what Condi Rice says is true about being at battle stations.

He really made it a personal vendetta.

The Agriculture Department has paid millions of dollars to dead farmers over the last several years, according to an audit released Monday.
The Government Accountability Office estimated in a new report that agencies within the department may have paid more than $30 million to thousands of deceased recipients between 2008 and 2012. The findings come as Congress tries to pass a new farm bill, and could stir concerns among conservatives that the government's many subsidy programs are not being carefully managed.

So, what was all the "shovel-ready" bullshit coming out of Obama's mouth about?
In one motion, more money was spent than the total cost of the war in Iraq from beginning to end. That was enough money to rebuild the entire infrastructure of the United States... the goddam "shovel-ready" jobs Obama was lying about.
Where did that money go? It was stolen, of course. Just look at the people allocating it. An idiot can tell you those people are thieves.
The total 10-year cost of Porkulus will be 3.3 trillion dollars, to include 744 billion (call it a trillion) dollars debt servicing.
Stop the insanity.
No more debt. Not for any reason. And definitely not another Porkulus lie.
Porkulus? Didn't you say the word doesn't exist?

Finally, the right message by the right voices! Black leaders who have influence.
Good money management goes hand-in-hand with good parenting advice to white , black, and other ethnic families. So, you're all in favor of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Planned Parenthood family planning and health centers staying open and even expanding their services.

Recently heard a Muslim Middle Eastern expert explain that most radical Islamists are uneducated and can't read. The only way they can feel relevant in today's world is through violence and terrorism.

Entitlements and Guaranteed Bankruptcy
By Gary North
November 3, 2010
THE USES OF DECEPTION
The typical voter has never read this. The statement is “transparent,” but it is buried deep in the Social Security System’s Website. It is a classic case of “The large print giveth, and the fine print taketh away.” It has never occurred to the average voter until quite recently that the promises made by Congress can be revoked at any time for political reasons. Who says so? The Social Security System.
The fact that workers contribute to the Social Security program’s funding through a dedicated payroll tax establishes a unique connection between those tax payments and future benefits. More so than general federal income taxes can be said to establish “rights” to certain government services. This is often expressed in the idea that Social Security benefits are “an earned right.” This is true enough in a moral and political sense. But like all federal entitlement programs, Congress can change the rules regarding eligibility — and it has done so many times over the years. The rules can be made more generous, or they can be made more restrictive. Benefits which are granted at one time can be withdrawn, as for example with student benefits, which were substantially scaled-back in the 1983 Amendments.
The phrase,“an earned right,” is another term for “entitlement.” So,“entitlement” in fact means “not legally entitled.” Who says so? The United States government.

I've explained what they are several times here, and exactly what their part was in the economic collapse. You should have been paying attention. You would have learned something. You know, Ben Bernanke mentioning them in his testimony to Barney Frank's committee should have indicated to you they had importance of significance.
Do I have to explain what a Special Purpose Vehicle is again for you? Or, can you tell us what they are?
I'm guessing you don't have a clue. Therefore, because they were the key element in getting fraudulent ratings for the worthless traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages, you haven't got a fucking clue why or how the economy collapsed.
I want you to tell us what a Special Purpose Vehicle is, or just say you don't know anything about what you copy and paste here.
A "Special Purpose Vehicle" is...(why don't you finish that sentence and show us you know what you're talking about.)


SPEs have been utilized for years.

But hey, you are progressing. No longer blaming the CRA. Now you are blaming the institutions who bundled bad loans & bought AAA credit ratings for them. Now, if you only could understand that all sub prime mortgages were not CRA.

Fair and Balanced and White? Why Fox News Needs Black Conservatives

Fox News Channel, the hugely successful conservative cable TV network whose motto is “Fair and Balanced”, is anything but when it comes to on-air personalities.

Libertarian Greg Gutfeld, host of Fox News Channel’s Red Eye and The Five, believes the network has a race problem. During Wednesday’s opening segment on The Five, Gutfeld noted the incongruous scenario of constantly discussing race without a black person participating in the discussion.

Gutfeld said,“We are here talking about this and there are five white people. I think Fox should be hiring more black conservatives. Because, dammit they need to be here and they need to be everywhere. That’s fair and balanced.”

Gutfeld’s keen observation should not be taken lightly. Fox News’ lack of African-American representation at the highest level of its TV shows, anchors and hosts, has a negative ripple effect throughout the conservative movement.

Cable TV news is less about news and more about presenting opinions and analysis that generate ratings and voter action. Given that statement, it is safe to assume that the opinions of black on-air personalities do not resonate with Fox News’ audience. And if it is safe to assume black on-air personalities do not resonate with Fox News audiences, then they definitely don’t resonate with Republican voters.

The paucity of on-air black anchors and hosts at Fox is completely consistent with the lack of black elected officials in the Republican Party. It is no secret that Fox News is largely seen as the most influential and important communication vehicle of the GOP. It is not a coincidence that there are relatively few black on-air show hosts on Fox and only one black Republican in Congress. If Fox News is not promoting black conservatives for elected office — and they are not— then it is highly improbable that they will be elected. Why Fox is not pumping up the profiles of conservatives like Mia Love, Erika Harold, or Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) is anybody’s guess. You would think electing the first African-American Republican woman to Congress and providing a platform for the only black Republican in Congress would be high priorities of the conservative network. Unfortunately, Fox doesn’t have any opinion-making conservatives with black faces to make that point.

http://www.policymic.com/articles/56525/fair-...

If Fox News is not featuring black conservatives on-air, then rest assured that conservative America is not going to support them at the ballot box. The Republican National Committee has an outreach program, largely based on using the media to spread the conservative message to African-Americans. Maybe they should ask Fox News to help out.
