Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Well, someone went and done it again. So here's the same post just to annoy my little judge-it.
He gave that man in a wheelchair his undivided attention and listened to his every word bending down to his eye level until he heard the entire story about his condition. He exchanged dialogue with him showing obvious empathy for his illness even though many other people were standing around waiting to shake his hand.
The issue of medical marijuana was not as understood or accepted in 2007 as it is today. Romney was put in a position of either having to spend a considerable amount of time debating this controversial issue with this one man or stating his stance on legalizing marijuana - medical or otherwise - while expressing his empathy and leaving it at that. It was not the time or place for anyone to ask a politician such a loaded question.
A lot of people at that time thought using marijuana for medicinal purposes was just an excuse to legalize it. Politicians "working a room" rarely, if ever, get into a political debate over a controversial issue with one person in the room.
Romney, I'm sure, considered it a "gotcha" question and wasn't going to tell the man something he couldn't promise or back up after being put in that compromising position.
If he was against legalizing marijuana, he couldn't very well say he personally would not have anyone arrested for breaking the law.
People's opinion about medical marijuana have changed with more information and education over the years. If asked the same question today, Romney might have had a completely different answer.
Romney responded no differently than any other politician when asked a "no win" question working a crowded room. For all we know, the man in the wheelchair could have been a plant.
In California, using marijuana for medicinal purposes had become a farce. Everyone had some kind of medical issue and prescriptions were being handed out like candy. Marijuana stores were on every street corner.
(It's more fun to re-post the longer ones.)
Meh, one way the other it makes it easier to find posts to read.

We can only hope the present insanity is only temporary.

The new president of Iran recognizes Israel.
TEHRAN — In an unusual press conference Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, was shown unlabeled maps of Cyprus, Iceland, Israel, and Kansas and asked if he could pick out Israel.

"Its that one, the third from the left" said Rouhani pointing at the correct map of Israel.

The event has sparked interest in the new president as it provides further contrast with his predecessor who once mistook a shoe for the nation of Israel ...

The point is this: if Romney wanted to intervene in Syria; you'd all be waving the flag; if he wanted to bomb Iran, you'd be orgasmic.
You're too simple minded to understand the whole concept of the Middle East. You all whined and justified the Iraq invasion; basing it upon his gassing of his own people. What's different now?
You all became doves? or Russian sympathizers?
Uneffing believable.
I am not in support of any war; however, I don't think that we are privy to all of the intel either, nor should we be.
McCain and Graham have met with the rebels; they are pushing for this; they are Republican. So what's the deal?
I am of the mind that if there is to be war, then it should be paid for first and not stick the American people with the bill for years to come.
Israel and Saudi Arabia,Turkey, are pushing for this intervention.
I was too young when the Iraq war happened to know about Sadaam gassing anyone. I had no idea. I wanted our government to bomb any and all moslems after I experienced 9-11. I wanted to get even and wipe them out. Linsay Grahamnesty has been a joke to me. I voted for McCain because of Sara Palin.

If the O'bama war on Syria is prompted by other countries, why is O'bama taking orders from them? O'bama looking for excuse to blame anyone-he hates Israel like most leftists--back to the 1967 borders. No one is looking to the United States now. O'bama is a doofus.
Have a sweet Rosh Hasanah

In the past I have provided numerous numbers of our Inequality within the USA . Numbers can lack visualizing the extent of what they represent Today I will seek to stimulate your visual apprehension of the problem with “The Price Of Inequality” in the USA.
Here we can attack say a tree which we want to dispose of. Many attack the branches where in one attacks at the roots.
Similar to what we have here on this thread. Lets go to the root of the problem. Inequality of our labors productivity.
Price of Inequality is far more expensive to one and all. Inequality properly addressed that would benefit, yes even the lone hermit in the woods, to his majesty on the throne, if inequality were to be more justified in its distributions.
Now I will provide a video chart which may be more helpful in comprehending inequality as it is presently exist within the USA. We take care of that problem and the might of the USA would be undisputable through out the world and its Free Markets.
Yes even here in the USA, Austerity has taken its toll. Diminishing our strengths to compete effectively, on the Free Markets Of the World. http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... video chart USA wealth Distributions..

O'bama has his handy list. LOL. what a doofus.
you do realize that it wasn't President Obama who met with an al Qaeda leader fighting President Assad, but Sens. McCain and Graham. Both of whom have been advocating military intervention for months now.

as far as your moniker is concern, I see you support insubordinate behavior in the military. I'm guessing you've never served. Those troops who made those posts should be courts-martial-ed. Heck, you can tell it goes against the UCMJ, or they wouldn't be hiding their faces.

The Ayatollah and a cabal of clerics really run Iran.

They were ready to retaliate against Israel last year for the killing of one of their nuclear scientists.

They must be chomping at the bit by now.

But at least their new "elected leader" knows his geography.

All I know is if Romney were sitting in the WH, all that time and money spent on investigating Obama's ineptness and incompetency would have been saved, three Americans and an ambassador would still be alive today, bin Laden would still be dead, and there would be a collective sigh of relief from the unemployed and the employers because Obamacare would already be history.
It's also pretty safe to say President Romney would have put a little fear into Russia, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood because he, too, knew strength is the only thing they understand and respect. And China's arrogance and manipulation would have been put to task.
But this country voted for what we have now and we're getting just what we deserve, unfortunately.
Really, you know all this for sure. what do you have a magical crystal ball.

TRUTH IS YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.
