Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Read more

We should mind our own business. Obama should have never followed the French with the Libya fiasco. Now that Obama is president, you on the left are all gung ho war mongers. Not a peep from you radical Democrats Once Obama was elected, now we have scandals & cover-ups galore, yet not a peep.
You are the last one on this thread that should talk about being uninformed, as you just make crap up all the time, dolt.
I see no problem with us lefties being hypocrites. So many things that we didn't mind before (like making fun of the President), bother us now. So many things that we did mind before (like war), don't bother us now.

Like when George Bush was in office, we liberals regularly compared him to Hitler, speculated that he was behind 9/11, fantasized about murdering him and generally talked about him like he was the Son of Satan.

This was called "speaking the truth to power."

Then Barack Obama came into office and ironically, dissent isn't so patriotic anymore. Suddenly we Democrats and liberals became angry, humorless scolds who believe that the President of United States is beyond criticism.

Of course, the truth is that we haven't changed at all; we're just hypocrites.

If you want to see how hypocritical and oversensitive to criticism we liberals can be, here's an example.

Get the rodeo clown!: Rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling put on an Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair and asked the enthusiastic people in the crowd if they'd like to see “Obama run down by a bull.”

Nothing racist was said, no threats were made, and of course, Obama wasn't in the ring.

It was a harmless bit of mockery of the President that had been done previously to George H. W. Bush with no outcry.

In this case, the Democratic governor and senator of the state condemned Gessling, he was banned for life from the Missouri State Fair, and the head of the Missouri NAACP called it a "hate crime" while asking for the Secret Service and NAACP to investigate.

Anyone else?
Now why would you be worried about this? Aren't you the same person that tried to argue me down about global warming? When will you all realize that everything on earth is inner connected &, in some sense, 1 thing is the food to another? There's a guy on the internet that called every city that was going to be hit hard by tornados 3 days before they hit. He's not a psychic, he didn't make predictions. He simply identified the hot spots left by chemtrails. 1 by 1, he pointed out every city 3 days in advance. The more man fucks with the earth, the more the entire economical system is destroyed &, affected. Same goes with nature & it's forces! I remember telling you about this ( all the animals dying) in a previous discussion on global warming. Now you've read the words of a whiteman, you're worried!

O CANADA

O Canada! Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The true north, strong and free
From far and wide, O Canada
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! Terre de nos aieux
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brilliants exploix.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Carol do you even realize that the majority of SNAP beneficiaries are children? Of course not because you're an idiot. Once again you've demonstrated that your pro life beliefs end when a child is born. You don't give a crap about whether they're getting proper nutrition or medical care afterwards. You're a fraud.
Also you couldn't answer the original inquiry so you tried to change the subject like you always do.
Assuming this is true (you didn't provide a source), it's not about not wanting children to be fed. It would be great if that's all SNAP was used for and to feed the truly needy.

It's about a massive federal government not overseeing the abuse and fraud because of its massive size which is taking money out of the paychecks of the middle and lower middle classes who are struggling to survive and feed their children without food stamps.

Don't you care about hardworking Americans who are just getting by without food stamps having to pay for those who have no problem abusing the broken system, especially since this president stifled jobs with Obamacare and encourages a welfare state?

You must know abuse and fraud is going on everywhere. There are absolutely no restrictions and no oversight. It's a smorgasbord of entitlements to anyone without a conscience.

Surely, you know there are people who have no conscience and abuse the broken system at others' expense.

Right?

Right-wingers want to erase how George Bush's "Homeowner Society" helped cause the economic collapse
http://crooksandliars.com/john-amato/attempt-...
The "Homeowner Society" was just part of the deal the Democrats had with the Republicans to support the war in Iraq.
If you noticed, it was only after they had gotten everything they possibly could from the Republicans before they turned on them and began to oppose the war in Iraq.

To repeat:

The avalanche didn't start until two years after the Democrats took over full oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse.
During this period of "Housing started its slide in 2006", we had two years of constant lies from Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank. Christopher Dodd was being paid more in bribes by the financial institutions that caused the collapse than any other person in the entire Congress. Barney Frank threw his male page off his New York hotel balcony and got busted for running a male prostitution ring out of his house, and who knows hom many other felonies Barney Frank committed that we never heard of, so they didn't have to bribe him.
Just how uninformed are you?

Well, you should take a look at the latest poll.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/163940/satisfactio...
Only 37% of Democrats are satisfied with the direction of the country. That's a lot who are dissatisfied.
Oddly enough, only 16% of Democrats were satisfied at the end of 2011 and then suddenly they became ecstatic at 64% right before the 2012 election.
Strange. Now reality has set it again. Democrats can't seem to make up their minds if they're happy or not.
Of course we're not happy nitwit! We have a GOP controlled House blocking any kind of legislation that would actually improve the economy. It's not the President who's throwing a wrench into the works, it's obstructionist Republicans who wasted 60 million taxpayer dollars trying to repeal the ACA, an effort they knew was doomed to failure.

My Momma always said that stupid is as stupid does. I want to be Mayor and I want Elliot to be Attorney General and I want Joe Biden to be President so we can have a rodeo clown in the White House.

I tell you this would be job creator. Social Media stocks will go up. Prostitution will be legalized (and not just for the Kennedys) and many handlers will become employed to help control Biden's frequent gaffes. We'll need extra teleprompters too. Buy that stock now.

This is no joke. The country has to sink lower and be more demoralized after having Obama for president so electing a class clown like Angry Joe is the straw that will break America's back.

The American people have been beaten down so bad and intimidated by the Democrats and MSM that it doesn't matter who the Democrats put up for president.

We, the American people, have gotten to the point where getting slapped in the face with lies after lies from Obama has become an accepted way of life.

Biden is telling everyone, you're so stupid and I'm going to take your stupidy to a whole new level.

You're going to vote for me for president if I run.

How does Biden know this?

Because Obama got reelected on non isses and a bad economy didn't he?

Biden knows stupid when he sees it. The low-informed want four more years of stupid and a bad economy, and damn it they're going to get it!

VOTE FOR JOE for free chicken in every free pot after you've smoked some!

I don't do this with comfort. Ann Dunham isn't too different than some other people I've known in my life. They use her to reinforce the obvious fraud that is Obama's promoted life. The evidence indicates a completely different story.
I detest frauds. Obama is a fraud. In the normal situation, I would not include any other individual in the condemnation of a fraud. However, this fraud is being used to destroy this country. This is not the normal situation of encountering a fraud.
There may be an afterlife where our life becomes inconsequential. What was, was. It was the life we lived. It has no significance in the afterlife. It's only significance is among the living.
To me, it is more disgusting that the Democrats create a lie out of her life. I feel sorrow for the life she was forced to live. She was duped, and paid for it with a life that was not happy for her. I condemn the people that duped her into believing what they promoted to her for their own personal enjoyment/pleasure/agenda.
She was just another victim of the communist lie and social engineering agenda falacy. She paid for it with the sadness her life obviously was.
How would any woman feel if they became pregnant, then dumped, then arranged to marry someone of convenience, then sent halfway around the world to a third world country in Africa to have a baby?
It seems to me her life was that of desperation and survival as best as can be done given the situation people like Frank Marshal Davis created for her.
There is a special place in heaven for people who were made to suffer like her.
We both don't like frauds, and you and I both agree Barack Obama is one of the biggest frauds ever pulled off in history.

But I just choose not to judge his mother.

She had no idea her son would become the president and would lie about and conceal everything in his past to become the president.

He's the one responsible for that. Not her.

I only blame her for raising an anti-capitalist son and, from all appearances, even lied to him, perhaps, about who his real father is.

Then again, maybe she didn't, but a hopeful presidential candidate having a Communist father wouldn't have gotten elected.

It's all just so murky - his past. And he wants more than anything for it to stay that way.

For example, in the above post, you state Bush did the invasions. That is mere rhetoric from you bimbos. The reality is this:

Yeah sure thing Moonbat, Obama accomplished a lot of good in Libya. The now fly Al Qaeda flags over government buildings, we lost 400 SAMs and:

Who's been blocking the budget for, what is it now, 5 years?
Who brought the deficit down from 1.6 trillion to less than 1.3 trillion?
It seems that it is necessary for Congress to be blocked from doing anything for this government to avoid certain collapse.

No more debt. Not for any reason. When any agency or department expends all the money appropriated for it, shut it down until there is more money in the treasure to appropriate for it.

And, how about a goddam budget. We are up to our eyeballs in debt on the verge of government collapse, and the Demcorats' solution to that problem is to get rid of the budget. You can't get more insane than that.

Shut the government down when there's no money in the Treasury to appropriate.
