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 ...

Would you rather the federal government with all the wasteful spending and lack of oversight make your health care decisions for you - much less the IRS for cryin' out loud?
Or - if these programs are part of the landscape anyway - states decide and manage that money on a local level and on an as needed basis?
Which one would waste more money? Which one would manage it more effectively?
Any reasonable person would choose the states. But I know you like to argue. So go ahead and tell me why the federal government would manage our health care better and why that makes you smarter than me.
Six of one, half dozen of the other.

You were actually cheering Reagan's proposal to hand health care over to the government.

Anyone going by the tag of "professional activist" is generally a waste of space. DC is a ghetto shthole doomed to failure like Detroit, and its goofy anti-gun antics will NEVER spread beyond similar retarded urbanity. A better way to make statement is to live your life safely and without rabble-rousing (all the while maintaining your Constitutional right to self defense)....
Understand: Thomas Paine = waste of space to Fenris the Scared Little Girl.

Fudging the numbers so people won't panic. The latest BLS jobs report for July also mentioned that "a large state" hadn't reported its numbers. That alone would alter the overall results.
No one blames Obama for the skyrocketing unemployment after the bottom fell out. We do blame him for not placing blame where it rightly belonged - with both parties - but especially his own party where F&F were concerned and urging banks to loosen lending standards to unqualified buyers.
Did you know 1 out of 4 people between the ages of 18 and 31 are still living with their parents - 5 years after Obama took office and after numerous failed attempts to stimulate the economy?
That's one statistic that isn't fudged and speaks reams about the real state of the economy.
How long is it supposed to take? And how can it possibly get better when Obamacare is making things worse?
Who told you the BLS report said "a large state hadn't reported its numbers?

They lied to you so that means you'll just keep going back to the same source for more lies. That isn't how the data is gathered.

Here's the release:
http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.ht...

Now, how is it they're "fudging" the numbers?

Data collection and reporting measures haven't changed since 1994 when the system was overhauled.

You left this part out.
"There are plenty of culprits, like lenders who peddled easy credit, consumers who took on mortgages they could not afford and Wall Street chieftains who loaded up on mortgage-backed securities without regard to the risk.
"Bush did foresee the danger posed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored mortgage finance giants. The president spent years pushing a recalcitrant Congress to toughen regulation of the companies..."
Then there's this WSJ article regarding the Senate Banking Committee introducing a bill in 2005 to oversee the housing lending standards.
"In light of the current financial crisis, this bill was probably the most important piece of financial regulation before Congress in 2005 and 2006. All the Republicans on the Committee supported the bill, and all the Democrats voted against it.
"If the Democrats had let the 2005 legislation come to a vote, the huge growth in the subprime and Alt-A loan portfolios of Fannie and Freddie could not have occurred, and the scale of the financial meltdown would have been substantially less."
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222129488114...
Then there's the Congressional hearings in 2004 to rein in Frank Raines and Fannie and Freddie.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
If you haven't figured out by now it's only the Democrats who blame Republicans - loudly, often and conspicuously - without a hint of reflecting on their role, you're probably too gullible.
The Democrats didn't hold up Hagel's bill:

Freddie Mac Tried to Kill Republican Regulatory Bill in 2005
Published October 19, 2008
Associated Press
Freddie Mac secretly paid a Republican consulting firm $2 million to kill legislation that would have regulated and trimmed the mortgage finance giant and its sister company, Fannie Mae, three years before the government took control to prevent their collapse.
In the cross hairs of the campaign carried out by DCI of Washington were Republican senators and a regulatory overhaul bill sponsored by Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. DCI's chief executive is Doug Goodyear, whom John McCain's campaign later hired to manage the GOP convention in September.
Freddie Mac's payments to DCI began shortly after the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee sent Hagel's bill to the then GOP-run Senate on July 28, 2005. All GOP members of the committee supported it; all Democrats opposed it.
In the midst of DCI's yearlong effort, Hagel and 25 other Republican senators pleaded unsuccessfully with Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., to allow a vote.
"If effective regulatory reform legislation ... is not enacted this year, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system and the economy as a whole," the senators wrote in a letter that proved prescient.
Unknown to the senators, DCI was undermining support for the bill in a campaign targeting 17 Republican senators in 13 states, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The states and the senators targeted changed over time, but always stayed on the Republican side.
In the end, there was not enough Republican support for Hagel's bill to warrant bringing it up for a vote because Democrats also opposed it and the votes of some would be needed for passage. The measure died at the end of the 109th Congress.

Obama's backyard.
BushCo's misguided venture into Iraq will likely cost US taxpayers in the range of $3 Trillion dollars before the dust finally settles and that doesn't include the potential enormous costs for the ongoing need for US military involvement in the Persian Gulf.

It appears that you're equally ignorant as to what's happening in Chicago. Racist scumbag!

Post-Zimmerman: CNN Viewership Drops 32%, HLN 50%
501 1 62
by John Nolte 3 Aug 2013, 6:19 AM PDT
Considering their previous lows, both CNN and HLN enjoyed respectable viewer gains in the month of July, but the latest ratings that look at a full week of post-Zimmerman trial viewership shows that both networks might be falling back to earth. TV Newser reports that last week, CNN saw its viewership plummet -32%. HLN fared even worse with a -50% drop-off.
Fox News, however, continues to dominate its cable news competition. In all of cable, Fox beat CNN and MSNBC combined during primetime and ranked 4th in total primetime viewers, behind only the USA Network, TNT, and the History Channel.
In total day viewers, Fox News ranked 5th in all of cable.
Wow, Fox "News" comes in behind The History Channel in primetime viewership.

Paint me underwhelmed.

4000 Bush dead in Iraq.
Sure but that number is the same as the 4 killed in Benghazi to a right-winger, it just has some extra zeros that aren't really necessary 'cause zeros don't matter.

You know, just like deficits.
