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

What Chicago needs is a community organizer that can lead them from the uncivilized norm that exists there today toward a civilized existence. Offhand, I can't think of anyone who can do that.
The United States ranks among the worst countries in the world for gun violence.
If the cities of Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans are taken out of the calculation, the United States ranks the 4th best place in the world to live with respect to gun violence.
What do those four cities have in common?
The first thing that comes to mind is they have a traditional Democrat city government.
I suppose Detroit could be looked at, too.
Name a city in the US with a traditional Republican city government that resembles the obviously uncivilized cities run by Democrats.

so what is with you folks and Reagan's 47%? it kept Mitt out of office. you'd think you guys would learn from that. but let's let a FOX talking head explain...
Every person who talks and writes about politics gets stuff wrong. I’ve gotten my fair share wrong. But what I think I got most wrong in Campaign 2012 was the damage Mitt Romney’s “47%” remark would do to him.
It may seem obvious, but bear with me.
Mitt Romney was talking off the cuff to a supposedly off the record group of donors and muddled several data points together, ultimately telling the tale of the 47% who won’t vote for him for any reason. He was referencing the 47% who don’t pay taxes and interwove it with a 47% of locked in Obama support. The statement was a mess.
I didn’t think Mitt Romney would be as hurt by the statement as he was because I assumed Romney had misspoken in an off the cuff way. I assumed Romney would clarify that he knew many of those who have government assistance did not actually want the assistance, but needed it. I assumed he’d make the case that he’d help those people get off the government dole and back into work.
In other words, I assumed Romney believed what I believe — many of those people are good people who fell on hard times and are not of the same class of people who will vote for Barack Obama for free stuff. I was absolutely wrong. Romney not only believes completely what he said as he said it, he reinforced it with his post election analysis of his defeat blaming gifts to various classes of people. If that was true, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, Romney had plenty to gift to plenty strapped to the back of marching elephants.
Note to Mitt Romney: really, it’s you, not them. Seriously.

The 47 percent number is accurate.
The rest of your bullshit is just political spin.

47 percent won't like a flat tax because they will actually have to start paying for what they vote for.
It's that simple. de Tocqueville had it exactly right.

A gun is a useless tool until a person chooses to use it you moron. A pencil is not relevant until a person chooses to write with it you idiot...

A gun is not relevant until a crime is committed.. After all, pencils don't misspell words, people do you dumbass...

You can ban guns, box cutters, knifes, swords, scissors, sticks or stones and fertilizer. One will never disarm a deranged liberal.

Gun laws have never or will make an insane, deranged liberal sane you fool.

which is fine when he says what you want to hear.

so why do you hate Reagan's 47%?

if only you could spin your way out of that one.

Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who don’t pay federal income taxes as “takers.” But to President Reagan, the godfather of today’s conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.

Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who don’t pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a “sweeping victory for fairness” and “perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.”

That's what they used to say in every other Western country also. Your whole narrative is one big fat lie. Islamic law contravenes American freedoms in numerous particulars. Moslems have demanded, and received, special accommodation in public schools, in the workplace, in our government, and in privately owned businesses. The obfuscation and deliberate confusion spewed by liberals like you and all the other idiots is a tactic to defeat the prohibition of Islamic law in American courts and culture. If Sharia was so wonderful you would be trying to compare it to other religions, it would stand on its own. You are using the same tactic most terrorists use.

See how fast you single out a single aspect &, start attacking. Republican cities such as in republican states, have a higher propensity for racial violence than democratic cities. Sad to say it but, most murders in those cities you named are victims of gang violence, gang on hand violence! That's the life they chose. Nobody chose to be their race. They are what they are &, it's common in republican states that violence be taken under the guise of racial pretenses. That's what should looked at &, scrutinized. Both black & white. Southern N. America is racially divided &, it's almost like the system works with white racist to get off Scottfree. Talk about that!

Laws enforced by Democrats obviously won't do that. If you doubt that, just look at Chicago.
So, since that is an impossibility, and it's overwhelmingly obvious a defense against the uncivilized behavior of Obama's base is necessary, then you ain't gonna take my gun.

Okay Carol, let's go with a popular definition of insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein;
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The Republicans in the House have voted 40 times to repeal the ACA with no chance of it going any further. That would seem to indicate that they've totally lost their minds.
Your 2012 primary slate was a perfect example. You had one viable candidate in John Huntsman who could have actually won but he wasn't as delusional enough to attract the extreme right wing base. So when all of the crazies finally fell to the wayside you were left with a sociopathic snake oil salesman who got drubbed even in his home state.

Enough of the small rocks this morning. Let's make these self-described "liberal" frauds break out the big rocks.

For a fraud like Obama to be admitted to Harvard after being a poor student and dropout at Occidental, and never even attending classes at Columbia, someone who busted their ass and made the sacrifices to attend Harvard had to be denied.

I wonder who was denied attendance at Harvard after busting their asses and making all the sacrifices so a fraud like Obama could get that on his fraudulent resume.

Who was the person refused admittance to Harvard so the fraud Obama could attend?

Another example of Republican insanity:
Let's make it real easy for anyone to obtain a firearm; criminals, the insane and even terrorists but let's make it more difficult to vote especially if you belong to a group that's more likely to vote for Democrats.

Is it racial violence? Or, is it cultural? What do you think will happen when a culture that has no respect for another person's rights, property and life comes into contact with a culture that places the highest regard on individual rights, private property and a person's life?
The problem is, when you define the different cultures, it coincidentally approximates a racial difference.

Reagan was proud of the EITC considering the legislation one of the greatest achievements of his presidency.

Bush II expanded the EITC.
