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 ...

What are you now? LCN's echo?

Like I told him, do some reading on liberating Europe and rebuilding Japan and Germany. And providing help to those in need around the world.

And then contrast that to books about Lenin and Mao.

(Am I going to have to repeat all my responses to LCN to you too from now on?)

<quoted text>So, you're saying that we should just accept our Third World status that the Bush Administration and Republicans put us in. That's too self-defeatist for me. I'll stand with the President Barack Obama and his more American belief in our own innate abilities to adapt and change and improve when we work together.
Ahhh, that sounds so....bubbly and marvelous. The only innate ability Obama has exhibited is to exacerbate a worsening situation. 5 years in, 90% of our states showed an INCREASE in unemployment last month. Is that what you mean by working together?

Yea, and Rep Kevin McCarthy announcing on inauguration day that
"We've gotta challenge them on every single bill....and
show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies" hasn't worked out to be a "good strategy" either.

About time since Republicans are only interested in doing nothing to help us. It didn't work in 2012 but they somehow think doing nothing except obstructing will win them the votes of Independents who typically have no love of partisan baloney.

Republicans will be forced to offer alternatives (beyond repealing Obamacare & restricting abortions & gay marriage)

Do you think the hajib should be prohibited?
The problem, of course, is the UK and other countries in Europe are beginning to realize Muslims are becoming more dominant by remaining separate from the mainstream while growing in numbers and demanding Sharia Law be implemented into their own governments' laws.

It's just going to be a little harder to do that here. But we probably shouldn't think it can never happen.

At least one city in this country has already granted Muslims the right to say their prayers over loudspeakers.

We should all be keeping an eye on Europe and if this problem is contained there or continues to grow.

A ‘Groundswell’ Of Republican Distortion and Misinformation Puts Our Nation in Peril

Americans cannot take groups like Groundswell lightly because they are having a measure of success in implementing their extreme agenda in Congress and particularly states saturated with low information voters. In fact in one memo to Groundswell members and influential conservative journalists, the group said,“we must reclaim the language and put ‘a face’ on our messages; tell stories. Write articles on 4th grade level!” It is no coincidence that red and Southern states enact voter suppression, anti-women’s choice, and right to work for less laws that inflict harm on liberals and conservatives alike with little opposition, and it is only because of ignorance inherent in their constituents. The problem with low information voters with the comprehension level of a fourth-grader is they are easily swayed by fear mongers preaching that President Obama is coming for their guns, stripping their religious freedom, and transforming America into a communist nation.

A National African American Opinion Poll On The Obama Presidency, Unemployment, Economic Opportunity And Social Issues

The poll reveals that African Americans have an immense sense of pride in Barack Obama as President of the United States and he is unequivocally liked. He receives a 91% favorable rating. Seventy-two percent believe that President Obama's election has helped them while only 4% believe his election has hurt them.

African Americans believe that President Obama's election has helped them. A majority of those polled – 62 percent – are optimistic about employment in the next four years.

On the issue of employment, the poll reveals that thirty percent of respondents believe they are doing better off financially than compared to four years ago; however, the most recent jobs report shows an ongoing high rate of unemployment within the African American community. When polled on why African Americans believe Black unemployment is consistently double that of whites, responses include: failure of the education system for minorities, lack of corporate commitment to hiring minorities, and a failure of government policies for hiring practices.

Like I told LCN and Lily - and now my unhappy little judge-it - do some reading on liberating Europe, rebuilding Japan and Germany and providing help to those in need around the world.

And then contrast that to books about Lenin and Mao.

But liberals just love hating America.

Powerful countries historically make mistakes. But the mistakes made by what was once the beacon of liberty to the entire world are miniscule when compared to the invasions, occupations and forced colonization by other powerful countries and empires in the past.

They equate liberating and protecting as something bad and mistake us with the British Empire forcing themselves on countries like India.

Again, we liberate and protect.

Now I want all liberals to say that out loud.

You obviously haven't been paying attention. The President and black leaders have been talking about the problems and doing something about them by lecturing blacks. Problem is, you people (Republicans) have been too busy complaining to listen.
Obama:“We need fathers to realize that responsibility does not end at conception...They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it....Don’t get carried away with that eighth grade graduation. You’re supposed to graduate from eighth grade.... there are some things, as black men, we can only do for ourselves.”
Obama:“We’ve got no time for excuses. Not because the bitter legacy of slavery and segregation have vanished entirely; they have not. Not because racism and discrimination no longer exist; we know those are still out there. It’s just that in today’s hyperconnected, hypercompetitive world, with millions of young people from China and India and Brazil — many of whom started with a whole lot less than all of you did — all of them entering the global workforce alongside you, nobody is going to give you anything that you have not earned.”
Obama:“Be a good role model and set a good example for that young brother coming up.”“If you know somebody who’s not on point, go back and bring that brother along — those who’ve been left behind, who haven’t had the same opportunities we have — they need to hear from you. We’ve got to teach them just like what we have to learn, what it is like to be a man."
Until we have a generation of black parents who value an education and embrace the idea that their children can be successful, blacks will continue to be disadvantaged. It takes time. It will not happen overnight. It will not happen in five years or ten but it will happen if black leaders continue to speak out loudly as Obama and so many others are doing. You just need to listen.
You are naive as hell.

The polls show Hillary with a narrow lead over all Republican challengers and Biden trailing all Republican challengers.

With 83% of the nation showing disapproval with Congress Obama has obviously decided to listen to the people and take things into his own hands. Good for him.

By the way, I don't hear Germany, Japan or any other European country complaining about having been liberated and protected when, in fact, they WERE occupied by force and ruled by evil tyrants.

Iraqi generals said Obama pulled out all troops too soon.

But that's a liberal for ya'. Undo all the good that could have been done before it's had a chance to succeed. Just to get reelected.
