Barack Obama, our next President

You are a moron.

Grassley put up an amendment to the ACA that says Congress members & their staffs must get their healthcare benefits through the exchanges. All the Democrats voted for it.

The British parliamentary rejection of military intervention in Syria Thursday night was not a sign of isolationism or nonchalance over the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, but rather it reflects a necessary use of caution and prudence in these chaotic times.
Coming a decade after the country tumbled headfirst into the disaster which became the Iraq war, the British public is clearly still feeling bruised, reticent to trust their politicians. After the facts and truths were so grossly manipulated back in 2003, and the motive for war was premised on the possibility of the presence of WMD, it is understandable that people are now wary of evidence placed before them. Especially when there are still so many unknowns surrounding last weekís attack east of Damascus, which rebels say killed hundreds.
Indeed, during the lengthy debate in Parliament, MPs referred specifically to the Iraq debacle, a war so ill thought out that it is still claiming hundreds of lives each month in sectarian violence. Once bitten, twice shy.
And this loss of trustworthiness, stemming from a neglect of the values of transparency and openness, is being felt across western Europe and in the U.S., with opinion polls very firmly highlighting public opposition to intervention. The public is sick of war, and full of skepticism over any long-term objectives. It all too often appears that foreign policy advisers are stumbling into decisions, forced into corners due to global allegiances or rivalries. Understandably, people become wary that the best motives are truly influencing these decisions.
But whereas Cameron appeared to have clumsily rushed through a motion, which at least he allowed the opposition to modify, perhaps the U.S. is going to be more careful. John Kerry spoke Friday evening with confidence over intelligence which pointed, without a shadow of a doubt, to the regime being responsible. It was the speech Cameron should have given before his parliamentary vote.
The use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, a claim which the evidence thus far seems to support, is an outrageous act, and the culprits must be punished, as Kerry stated. Those responsible must realize they cannot carry out such acts ever again. But to carry out a punitive strike, to merely satisfy Western consciences, is not the way to do this. Such a crude use of military power, rushed into and poorly planned, with no thought to the repercussions, would do more harm than good. Possibly with this in mind, Kerry was right to assure the public that any intervention in Syria would bear no similarity to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With an issue as sensitive as this, in a part of the region so critical, the international community must be as scrupulous and as careful as it can be with the facts. It must consider all outcomes of its actions, and have answers on what happens tomorrow. And the war-weary public rightly expects as much.

The Brits can't stand the narcissistic Obama. He's done nothing but diss them every chance he's had since January 2009.

In January 2011 Obama said:'We donít have a stronger friend and stronger ally than Nicolas Sarkozy, and the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys.' This is after France sat out and opposed the Iraq War.

Hah, LMAO at the poster who said you were lying because you didn't provide a link and then cited the examiner blog.
Obama is dithering on Syria, just like he did on General McChrystal's August 30, 2009 request for a troop surge in Afghanistan. Obama shelved the request for weeks and then was pissed off when the general went to the press revealing Obama's dithering in early October. It took until December 1.2009 for the Ditherer to announce his decision.

Now Obama gets to stall a couple more weeks on Syria and if the military response is ineffective he'll blame the Armed Services and Congress. If Congress votes no he'll be able to retreat from his Red Line (which he really wants to do)and say he had to honor their decision.

How are those Iran/Nuke talks going? Obama dithers while Iran speeds up plutonium production.

George W. Bush is a phoney. However, he did have the good sense to at least issue a respectful statement:

What did Obama do when the Mullahs murdered people in cold blood?

Leading from behind in Syria, he could have supported the moderate elements when they began the uprising well over a year ago, but chose not to.

Now he has boxed himself into a corner ignoring the first uses of chemical weapons which encouraged the latest use and 1400 killed.

Leading from behind is not a strategy, it's puerile. How did Clinton lobbing a few tomahawks at bin laden do for you?

The key word is "can". To think there isa one to one ratio between corp tax cuts & price reduction, then you are sadly mistaken.
One of the problems with Fair Tax's argument is that ending corporate taxation leads to equal price reductions. That os beyond stupid.
You claim to own a business. I have no idea what it it nor do I care. However, lets say you sell widgets. If the company down the street starts selling widgets for $5 less than you and all your customers start going there are you going to keep your price the same or lower it?

Not as phoney as Barack Hussein Obama, but he was is a 'Natural Born Citizen'. Something that Obama has yet to prove, with a Birth Certificate that passes muster.

Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on Facebook
By Mark Donahue
Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on FacebookWASHINGTON Ė The turmoil that was generated between Russia and the United States after President Vladimir Putin granted asylum to Edward Snowden earlier this month escalated even further when President Obama cancelled his private meeting with the Russian president before Septemberís G-20 conference of world economic leaders in St. Petersburg. But the delicate fragments of alliance that remained between the two countries may have been irretrievably shredded in the proverbial fan today after Vladimir Putin unfriended President Obama on his Facebook page.
Sources inside the administration say President Obama learned of the Russian presidentís Facebook coup during his morning White House briefing. Obama became quite upset when he was told the news, but upon learning that Vice President Biden and Vladamir Putin remained Facebook friends the president became enraged, forcing everyone out of the Oval Office before angrily kicking the door closed. Moments later it was discovered President Obama had signed onto his personal Twitter account and unfollowed President Putin.
About an hour later reporters managed to corner Vice President Biden outside a Duncan Donuts after heíd purchased his daily chocolate eclair and Diet Coke. When asked about Putin unfriending the president on Facebook, Biden took a moment to swallow a bite of his eclair before answering.
JoeBiden12072 Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on FacebookJOE BIDEN: Thatís a might tasty eclair. Only in America!
(The vice president smiled and winked at reporters)
JOE BIDEN: Now, to your question about President Putin. Politics is a high stakes game of deception, distraction and diversion that few have the ability to master. Thatís why thereís only a handful of folks who attain the level of power that a President Obama or a vice president like myself do. That being said, the depth of understanding involved in comprehending President Putinís Facebook maneuver cannot be easily deciphered, let alone explained in a manner simple enough for the common man to grasp.
REPORTER: Mr. Vice President, did Vladimir Putin hurt President Obamaís feelings?
PRESIDENT BIDEN: Oh, sure. Even the most stoic among us isnít immune to the humiliation of being unfriended on Facebook. Although itís quite easy to forget, President Obama is after all, human. No more special than I am.
REPORTER: President Obama unfollowed President Putin on his Twitter account. Was that out of spite?
JOE BIDEN:(chuckling) Of course it was.
REPORTER: Mr. Vice President, apparently you are still Facebook friends with President Putin. Do you plan to unfriend him to show your allegiance with President Obama?
JOE BIDEN: I can assure you President Obama isnít concerned with my Facebook friends. What happens between President Obama and President Putin is between them. Who am I to take sides?
REPORTER: But according to a high level source inside the White House, the president is very concerned. Why do you think Putin unfriended President Obama but not you?
JOE BIDEN:(Smiling) Oh, gosh, who knows. I can say I heard Mr. Putin is still friends with Jay Z and the Clintons on Facebook. So itís not like Iím a big deal.
