Barack Obama, our next President

clean your own house before you start worrying about the house next door. credibility will allow you to judge others and until then you have no right to act superior.
I know that information is bogus because you didn't provide a link.

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.

Cornel West had some harsh comments for MSNBC's Al Sharpton and Michael Eric Dyson Friday.
Early in the radio show "Smiley and West," West said of the previous day's commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, "We saw of course the coronation of the bonafide house negro of the Obama plantation, our dear brother Al Sharpton, supported by the Michael Dysons and others who’ve really prostituted themselves intellectually in a very ugly and vicious way"
Cornel West is really shaking things up with the black Christian community--last month he came out and made the statement that most "liberals are morally bankrupt". I never knew much about the guy but started listening to him because I watch Tavis Smiley late at night on occasion and he was an interesting guest. He is candidly honest.

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.

George W. Bush On Syria:'I Was Not A Fan Of Mr. Assad'

Former President George W. Bush opened up about the situation in Syria on Friday, saying he "was not a fan" of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“He's an ally of Iran and he's made mischief," Bush told Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on Friday morning.

Bush tried to resist when Kilmeade asked about a potential strike on Syria, saying he knew the Fox host was "trying to subtly roll me into the issues of the day."

"I refuse to be roped in," Bush said.

Bush did say President Barack Obama "has to make a tough call" on Syria.

"Putting our military into harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make," Bush said.

Bush said people should learn from 9/11 when considering a potential attack on Syria, noting the U.S. can't ignore what's going on in other parts of the world.

"As time passes, people forget the lessons of September 11," Bush said. "One of the key lessons is the human condition elsewhere matters to the security of the United States."

According to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, most Americans are doubtful that airstrikes in Syria would do much to curb the turmoil there. An NBC News poll released Friday showed 50 percent of Americans said the U.S. should not take action against Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons, while 42 percent supported intervention.

Members of Congress, abruptly handed exactly the war powers many had demanded, grappled Saturday with whether to sign off on President Barack Obama's plan to punish Syria for an alleged chemical weapons attack. Now with a stake in the nation's global credibility, lawmakers were seeking more information about the possible consequences of striking a region without knowing what would happen next.

The debate over what action, if any, Congress might approve is in its infancy as lawmakers prepare for a public hearing Tuesday by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But the first contours began emerging within hours of Obama's announcement.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/mcco...

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he doesn't believe Syria should go unpunished for the Aug. 21 attack near Damascus. "But we need to understand what the whole scope of consequences is," he said by telephone. "What the president may perceive as limited ... won't stop there."

Arguing for a strategy that seeks to end Syrian President Bashar Assad's rule, Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina issued a joint statement saying that any operation should be broader in scope than the "limited" scope Obama described.

"We cannot in good conscience support isolated military strikes in Syria that are not part of an overall strategy that can change the momentum on the battlefield, achieve the president's stated goal of Assad's removal from power, and bring an end to this conflict, which is a growing threat to our national security interests," the senators said.

"Anything short of this would be an inadequate response to the crimes against humanity that Assad and his forces are committing. And it would send the wrong signal to America's friends and allies, the Syrian opposition, the Assad regime, Iran, and the world - all of whom are watching closely what actions America will take," they said.

Lawmakers of both parties had, for days, demanded that Obama seek congressional authorization under the War Powers Act. Until Saturday, the president showed no willingness to do so and the military strike appeared imminent. Then, from the White House Rose Garden, Obama said he would strike Syria in a limited way and without boots on the ground. But, he added, he would seek congressional approval first.

"All of us should be accountable as we move forward, and that can only be accomplished with a vote," Obama said. "And in doing so, I ask you, members of Congress, to consider that some things are more important than partisan differences or the politics of the moment."

With that, Obama dropped the question of Syria, the nation's credibility and the balance of government power in the very laps of lawmakers who had complained about his go-it-alone-style — but were less clear about how they would want to deal with a horrific chemical attack that the administration said killed 1,429 people, including 426 children. Other estimates of the death toll were in the hundreds.

By evening Saturday, the White House sent Congress its draft of a resolution to authorize Obama to use military force. The draft does not lay out a specific timeline or course of military action but gives Obama approval to use the military as he determines "necessary and appropriate" to meet its objective of preventing further chemical attacks. It also affirms the administration's view that, ultimately, only a negotiated political settlement can resolve the crisis in Syria.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
