Barack Obama, our next President

Where is the proof that Asaad is killing his own people with chemical weapons? The videos, that the media, in the United States are using are a hoax. Very bad actors-they actually used some of the same video and photographs from the Moslem Bro Hoodie site in Egypt--you know when the same terrorists said that the Egyptian Military was using chemical weapons on the Morsi Hoodies...same photos same lie. Why didn't O'bama go and save all those children children children in Egypt? they are the same children you know.
and Obama wasn't born in Hawaii.

do you even hear yourself?

and now children? so now we know how you really feel about Iraq. traitor.

Federal Statistics of black on white violence, with links and mathematical extrapolation formulas.
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.
The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

though it seems that 93% of black murders are committed by blacks. my bad.

and why not comment on the white man telling us about white man problems?

The Odds of War in Syria? A Lot Higher Now

Obama did the right thing, morally and constitutionally. Now the question is will Congress follow suit and approve a strike on Syria—or will they take the side of a murderous war criminal.

You aren't making any sense. Out of one side of your mouth you talk about War Mongering, but then out of the other side you say it's OK if Obama gets backing.
Abandon his "principles"? He promised to end the wars, instead he carries on and get's involved in new ones.
I hope you are not a parent. Your kids sure would grow up confused with you around. Typical liberal, Geeessshhh!!!
Geeessshhhh! You and yours are the ones who can't make up your minds. One minute you are claiming Obama's inaction is a sign of weakness and the next, you are criticizing him for proposing aggressive action. It's idiotic.

Despite the urging and criticism by the warmongering Republicans, Obama has always shown a reluctance to go to war. That is why so many liberals were surprised and upset by his seeming willingness to advocate unilateral aggressive action against Syria.

Again, I will remind you that we have an OBLIGATION under the UN charter to participate as a member of NATO forces and all members of the United Nations have an OBLIGATION to take action against anyone who uses Chemical Weapons. That is a fact. If that involves military force, so be it but we definitely should not, under any circumstances, go it alone. I am hopeful that Congress will come to the same conclusion as Britain's House of Commons. The United Nations should take the lead in international affairs...not the United States or Britain.

You should go back and read the entire GOP plan - especially the section about "expanding availability and accessibility of health care coverage".

Even you might be surprised. The few good parts in Obamacare were also included.
Requiring thousands of new government employees to oversee and implement this new law and thousands of new regulations designed to confound, confuse and burden employers isn't the solution.
Why would Congress and corporations want to be exempt if it were such a good solution?
I did read the entire plan dumbass, three times! Every time I read it I came up with the same question. Where's the beef? There isn't any! It's all bun! If anyone ever presented a piece of garbage like this to their corporate CEO or board of directors they'd be laughed out of the room and most likely fired.
The GOP promised four years ago that they'd flesh this piece of crap out and put it into legislative language and they haven't yet. They never had any intention to. But then again you were stupid enough to believe them on term limits too.

That's one of the few good things the GOP included - pre-existing conditions.
Everyone on the right since the beginning has been saying that.
If we scraped this monstrosity and started over again with Republicans being part of the equation this time, that would still be included.
So just how do you accomplish guaranteed coverage for those with pre existing conditions without an individual mandate to spread the risk Carol?

<quoted text>
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 week’s 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 don’t 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.

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:

"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."

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?
