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

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

"There's still a need for every American to help hasten the day when Dr. King's vision is made real in every community - when what truly matters is not the color of a person's skin, but the content of their character."

Don't you mean McCain's war on Syria? The Republican presidential candidate who referred to the "US failure" to intervene in Syria as 'shameful' and described Obama’s plans for limited air strikes on Syria as “cosmetic”? You people are deranged.
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?

A quote from one the most (if not THE most) IGNORANT, immature, ghetto gutter, kindergarten sandbox level statements to ever foam out of a political dog debators mouth.

A moment that demands an apology, for making listeners cringe at the utter stupidity and mindlessness of.

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?

Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on Facebook
By Mark Donahue
Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on FacebookWASHINGTON – 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 September’s 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 president’s 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 he’d 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: That’s 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. That’s why there’s 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 Putin’s 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 Obama’s feelings?
PRESIDENT BIDEN: Oh, sure. Even the most stoic among us isn’t immune to the humiliation of being unfriended on Facebook. Although it’s 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 isn’t 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 it’s not like I’m a big deal.
LOL

,

Because all the while when Obama was saying that he was weighing his options and had not made any definitive decision on Syria, you and yours were crying "the sky is falling". Now, when he finally announces that he's decided to use military force with congressional approval, you and yours, have egg on your faces. i

As much as I am opposed to any military action...especially one based on unreliable Massaud intelligence, I think Obama is making a smart move. Let those who have been grandstanding go on record rather than simply criticize from outside whatever action he takes.

What does a mandate have to do with coverage. Why don't you say what you really mean? That without the communist government ordering everyone to buy insurance young people won't so there won't be money to pay for older people. This thing is going to be the biggest boondoggle ever forced on the American people.

What I would do does not depend on the corp[orate tax rate.

My "widgets' are likely higher quality & my company provides expert advice & service.

Smart consumers go for more than price.

Just the other day you were bragging how you have loyal customers. Since you claim loyalty, I assume you are not the cheapest.

So why do they use your services?? Are the the cheapest?

Hi, Yeah. As usual, I am playing catch-up. Still travelling but convinced that I played a very small part in convincing Obama to rethink his course of action. I don't expect him to go against Congress and I don't expect Congress to make the same mistake twice.

However, I need to correct you on one thing, Bush did eventually apologize for his "failure" by admitting the Iraq war was "a clear example of poor judgement" and something that he finds "regrettable".

I trust that Obama has more common sense than Bushie Boy.

George W. Bush, May, 2013:

"After the events of September the 11th, I focused all my energy on protecting America from the next attack." Regrettably in our zeal to defend America, my administration exaggerated threats which - although real - did not constitute a clear and present danger to the United States.

"After my presidency I have come to the belief that the Iraq War, although well intentioned, was unnecessary and too costly to justify. I deeply apologize to the American people and to our soldiers and veterans in particular for engaging them in such a conflict.

"I may have made a mistake - but I think all Americans know that I pride myself on being able to admit my failures."

At one time usasince1680 compared O'bama to Khomeini-after O'bama was named Time's Man of the year. This is so funny:
QUOTE who="USAsince1680" <quoted text>
"[Americans] are the great Satan, the wounded snake."
— Ayatullah Khomeini
Not much has changed in the Middle East in all these years, has it?
I honestly hadn't given it much thought but now that you pointed it
out, his hatred of
the United States and his reliance on terrorism was not only the
lead-in to 9/11 and
the instability of the oil market but even our invasion of Iraq and
today's inflation.
But what I found most interesting was the Times description of
Khomeini, "he possesses the most awesome—and ominous—of political
gifts: the ability to rouse millions to both adulation and fury."
Sound familiar?
