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

It's nothing more than damage control and Obama saving face because he thought his "red line" threat would scare them.

Otherwise, there would be no talk of striking Syria. Obama needs permission to use military force from the rest of the world. Not Congress.

Does anyone even remember we're still fighting a war in Afghanistan? Or that soldiers have been in harm's way for the past five years and are dying every single day in that country?
Even Obama seems to have forgotten.
When was the last time anyone heard an update from this president or the liberal media about the progress or status of the war in Afghanistan?
We hear nothing but absolute silence.
The same silence we heard about Benghazi, the IRS, and the DOJ confiscating citizens' private information.
Opinions float free of facts

The difference is that if Obama were sitting in the WH on 9/11 and Saddam had been giving the UN the runaround to come clean about his WMDs post 9/11, the Democrats would remember how they ALL had considered him a threat just a few years before and more than just 111 would have supported toppling his regime then too.
And once the mass graves were uncovered, John Kerry would be in front of the cameras telling the American people it was the right thing to do because of Saddam's "crimes against humanity".
There was something to gain politically for Democrats to turn tail and let Bush hang out to dry, including John Kerry, when it was a matter of fighting the enemy on their own turf after they made Iraq the frontlines - and the "crimes against humanity" were of no importance anymore.
The difference between Iraq and Syria is it's now Obama's and Kerry's reputations on the line to intervene for humanitarian reasons. There hasn't even been another 9/11 and Syria didn't attack us either.
It's called hypocrisy of the highest order by the same weasels who care about human rights only when there's something to be gained politically.

Philly Cabdriver Stabbed 11 Times in $205 Robbery

PHILADELPHIA September 2, 2013 (AP)

Police say a Philadelphia cabdriver has been stabbed 11 times by a pair of riders who stole $205 from him.

A police spokeswoman says the 37-year-old driver pulled his taxi over to let two men out shortly before 1:30 a.m. Monday south of the city's center.

He says one man stood next to the driver's window and appeared to be getting money out of his wallet but then both of them stabbed the driver and grabbed his money.

The cabbie flagged down police and was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for wounds to his head, arm, chest, hand and neck.

The police spokeswoman says the wounds are superficial and the victim is in stable condition.

Police say one man has been arrested and another is being sought.

Amazing story out of Europe!! European men get taller, size of testicles decrease......:-)

Bigger and healthier: European men grow 11cm in a century


Sun Sep 1, 2013 7:01pm EDT

By Kate Kelland

LONDON, Sept 2 (Reuters)- The average height of European men grew by a surprising 11 centimetres from the early 1870s to 1980, reflecting significant improvements in health across the region, according to new research published on Monday.

Contrary to expectations, the study also found that average height accelerated in the period spanning the two World Wars and the Great Depression, when poverty, food rationing and hardship of war might have been expected to limit people's growth.

The swift advance may have been due to people deciding to have fewer children in this period, the researchers said, and smaller family size has previously been found to be linked to increasing average height.

The study, published online in the journal Oxford Economic Papers, analysed data on average men's height at around the age of 21 from the 1870s up to around 1980 in 15 European countries.

Barbara "weasel" Boxer:
“This is different. You’re facing a dictator who vowed widespread slaughter in his own country. Obama did the right thing.”
Note: Saddam killed a estimated one million Iraqis.
John Kerry:
“I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force – if necessary – to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
John "weasel" Kerry:
"We should not have gone to war knowing there was no imminent threat to America, knowing there were no weapons of mass destruction, knowing there was no connection of Saddam Hussein to al Qaeda."
The long list of democrats whose hypocrisy was so blatant is almost comical.
One need look no further than this page to see that leftists are the most pathetic worms on the planet......
