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 ... Full Story

Nope.
See, that makes your statement a lie. Liar
So does "Homer stuck in the 1880s when people actually were denied healthcare coverage" mean?

Here's your chance to explain why that statement does not say people were not denied coverage since 1880.

There's too many other sites with the same type info, and a LOT of it too. Looks to me like there's been a lot researched, from all over. I'd never looked at ANY of it before, but now I have to figure logically, after reviewing some of it-

They can't all be "conspiracy" theorists. Sometimes the truth really is,(when it Finally actually finds its way to the forefront) just the truth.

I must have missed something. Did not president nobama say he would act if Chemical weapons were used? Chemical weapons have been used to date. No action by obama, just more BS.

HEY STUPID! Paul Ryan was pushing for sequestration way back in 2004. Paul Ryan wrote the sequestration bill. It was a Republican idea from the beginning dumbass. Signing the sequestration was a strategic move on the President's part. He's not going to waste time and energy on fights he can't win unlike the House Republicans with their 40 going no place votes to repeal the ACA. He called their bluff. You want spending cut? Well here they are and Democrats are going to be able to use them in 2014.

"If sequestration was something about which Obama was so against and something for which he painted such a dismal picture of doom and gloom, why was it his idea to begin with and why did he sign it?
Something I've never quite understood."

President Obama never thought that House Republicans would be so juvenile as to actually choose 'sequestration' as a preferred hissy fit from actually working out a budget with him. Obama thought all Republicans were grown up enough to know that we have to pay taxes because we can't get along in this world if we don't pay for the stuff we want.

Poor Retarded Obama. Putin laughs at him and now:

"Allies Undercut US Policy in Egypt"

AP

Saudi Arabia's royal family gives its full backing—and its oil money—to Egypt's interim government, and pledges to make up any loss of Western aid due to the crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood. "

The Deer-in-Headlights & Chief Obama seems lost yet again! God forbid the Jive-ass Punk Obama offends the "Muslim" Brothers.

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.

Probably not a good idea to besmirch the president's deceased mother - even if Obama's father might not be who we think he is.
We can speculate about Davis without bringing up his mother's past. We all have skeletons in our closets, and she's no longer part of the equation, so it's best she be left out of it.
That's just my strongly felt suggestion.
Crazy stuff huh.

Paul Ryan did not get in front of a camera at every opportunity to paint a picture of doom and gloom with the intent to blame democrats if it backfired.

The sequester in 2013 was this president's idea. He signed it into law hoping Republicans would cave and blame them if they didn't.

It backfired on Obama instead.

The majority of Americans said the sequester in 2013 wasn't enough.

Very first post of this thread.

----------
Yep.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis
Fresh off the false and politicized attack on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, today we’re hearing the know-nothings blame the subprime crisis on the Community Reinvestment Act — a 30-year-old law that was actually weakened by the Bush administration just as the worst lending wave began. This is even more ridiculous than blaming Freddie and Fannie.
....Better targets for blame in government circles might be the 2000 law which ensured that credit default swaps would remain unregulated, the SEC’s puzzling 2004 decision to allow the largest brokerage firms to borrow upwards of 30 times their capital and that same agency’s failure to oversee those brokerage firms in subsequent years as many gorged on subprime debt.(Barry Ritholtz had an excellent and more comprehensive survey of how Washington contributed to the crisis in this week’s Barron’s.)
There’s plenty more good reading on the CRA and the subprime crisis out in the blogosphere. Ellen Seidman, who headed the Office of Thrift Supervision in the late 90s, has written several fact-filled posts about the CRA controversey, including one just last week. University of Oregon professor and economist Mark Thoma has also defended the CRA on his blog. I also learned something from a post back in April by Robert Gordon, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, which ends with this ditty:
It’s telling that, amid all the recent recriminations, even lenders have not fingered CRA. That’s because CRA didn’t bring about the reckless lending at the heart of the crisis. Just as sub-prime lending was exploding, CRA was losing force and relevance. And the worst offenders, the independent mortgage companies, were never subject to CRA — or any federal regulator. Law didn’t make them lend. The profit motive did. And that is not political correctness. It is correctness.

CRA was the problem and why there was legislative changes done to the CRA from the Original CRA and that is what the articles are trying to confuse and the 1995 regulatory changes is what cause the problem and the Federal Reserve requested and got the changes done to the 1995 regulatory changes.
