Barack Obama, our next President

you're going to have to find a real scandal.
find me one 'scandal' that you're trying to lay on Obama that I can't lay back on Bush. gun running, embassy personnel being killed, targeting political opponents with the IRS, eavesdropping of Americans. it all happened. it's documented. it's not going to go away just because the right wing media has a memory problem.
the MSM are not going to use the FOX journalistic model of a leap of logic here and a leap of logic there. that's not journalism. that's opinion, and you know what they say about opinions.....
Think of the Bush "scandals" - which apparently the liberal media never got wind of or you know as sure as shootin' it'd be on a 24/7 loop for his entire presidency - as Danny DeVito and Obama's "scandals" as Arnold Schwarzenegger.

And I suppose you want to become a Fireman when you grow up, too, eh?
If few people can afford to buy homes, the price of homes will either drop or remain low. This is Supply & Demand, Elmo.
If Liberals interfere with the marketplace and artificially make homes affordable to virtually every American, home prices will skyrocket artificially, too. This is called an economic bubble within the Supply & Demand scenario.
When Liberals interfere within the Supply & Demand scenario of the Labor marketplace by artificially increasing wages annually, the idiots create a constant inflationary upward pressure on prices. This defeats the reason for artificially increasing wages because each dollar is now worth less.
But it keeps the ignorant natives happy when they enter the voting booth, though, to know that Liberals are looking out for them:)
Liberals also do something similar by constantly pushing the Poverty Level higher each year, too, so that twenty years from now,they'll be able to declare that 50% of all Americans live below the Poverty Level, especially those emaciated minority children with ribs protruding - a powerful political football to use in the voting booth again.
May you burn on your first run, Mr. Fireman.
Wealthy CEO's and their top executives think that there is nothing 'artificial 'about raising THEIR wages , health and retirement benefits. It is perfectly rational and fair to get paid for the work that you do.

How is terrorism stronger now? President Obama has signed off on killing more terrorist than any other president in the history of the United States. The Boston marathon bombers did not announce that they were going to attack America as Al Qaeda did in August of 2001 when President Bush was on his ranch and blew it off. President Obama didn't have to listen to Willard Romney. The American people did and then they voted for President Obama.
There's a broader terrorist threat now entrenched throughout an “arc of instability”— from South Asia to West Africa - where our diplomatic posts have been closed because of the reported threats.

Guess when Obama closes down 17 embassies throughout the world because of rising threats, it's probably safe to assume terrorism is getting stronger - far from being "decimated" which you believed just to get him reelected.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle were met with signs saying "Obama lies" and "Kenyan Go Home" ahead of a speech in Florida on Saturday.

According to a White House pool report, the president's motorcade was pulling into the Hilton Orlando where the Disabled American Veterans are holding their convention when it passed about 50 protesters on both sides of the street. The protesters -- "many of them older and most of them white," according to the report -- were holding birther signs and signs calling to "Impeach Obama."

One of the vets gave her a commemorative pin which was quite impressive looking. She put it on at work and wore it home.
Very nice thing that veteran did for her.
My dad, too, was a WWII vet. Captured in the Philippines and a POW for 3 years. Reenlisted upon being liberated and retired as a Captain in the Air Force. He actually shook MacArthur's hand when "he returned". Was a military brat the first six years of my life. But I know liberals on here will say I still am - a brat, that is.
Neat Story !

i can find headlines for every one of the related Bush scandals.

so can you if you'd get you head out of the right wing echo chamber.

the echo chamber that doesn't allow you to see that the Obama 'scandals' are nothing more than the right wing media selling ad time. if that wasn't so...then why the silence when Bush did the same?

The administration closed the embassies after they were notified of a credible threat. The exact location was not clear and so to save lives they proactively closed the embassies that could be targets of terrotist. The original cell of Al Qaeda was decimated. Did you think that they were the only terrorist in existence? FYI Broader means more dispersed not larger.

How about the Iraq war. Bush invaded a country with evidence that he and his administration made up out of thin air at the cost of thousands of lives and a small fortune. That's a scandal the size of Lush Limbaugh's gut.

And you naively assume that all terrorism in the world is monolithic and controlled by one single source --Iran which is a far more lunatic and dangerous idea for American security and why Americans did not elect Mitt Romney who didn't care nor had a clue either.

Calling someone else out for 'getting things mixed up' for you and TSM is definitely 'the pot calling the kettle black' logic. Ask questions more if you don't really know,don't just pretend that you do know.

Florida Bus-Beating Case Reveals Fox News' Racist Colors
If you’ve watched Fox at all this week, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the beating of a white student by three black older students on a school bus in Florida. Fox has seized on this story and, with sickening enthusiasm, used it for no other reason than to gin up racial animosity in its lily-white viewers. The Orlando Sentinel reported the facts of the incident as follows:
The dispute began on July 9 when one of the three boys tried to sell the younger boy marijuana while the two were in a bathroom at their drop out prevention school, prompting the younger teen to notify school officials, according to WFLA.com . Later that day, Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight and Lloyd Khemradj were on the bus when they confronted their peer about the incident and began beating him while the school bus driver 64-year-old John Moody began to panic and call for help.
Not only does the Orlando Sentinel not indicate that race was the motive for the beating, Fox News’ own reporting said that the incident was about drugs.
Sadly, that did not stop the “fair and balanced” network from just assuming that race was involved or else insisting that it should be. For example, a FoxNews.com article was headlined,“Civil rights activists remain silent on Florida school bus beating video.” Yet the same article also reported,“Police say the three youths, all African-American, attacked the boy after he told officials at their dropout prevention school that one of them had tried to sell him marijuana.” There are no reports of racial epithets nor unfair treatment of the white victim because of his race. The same is true in a later FoxNews.com article called,“Critics blast Jackson, Sharpton over silence on Florida school bus beating,” which reported,“Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent told Fox News the attack does not appear to be racially motivated and was due to the younger boy reporting that one of the assailants had tried to sell him marijuana.” But not only did Fox chide civil rights leaders for not somehow jumping in to defend the white kid anyway, they teamed up with George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert – who has a history of real, documented racism – to make race-baiting attacks on Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
The fact that Fox News assumed that racial animosity just had to be involved or that black leaders should just act as though it were, regardless, speaks volumes about the network’s own racial hostility.

Trust Fixed news for unfair and unbalanced news. People who watch Fox news as their source of information are less informed than people that don't watch the news at all.
