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

Scores Of Children to Be Disappointed When Grandparents Give Them Rush Limbaugh’s Book
Rush Limbaugh’s white haired army of senility has rushed to Amazon to pre-order his children’s book, thus insuring that a wave of disappointment will sweep across American kiddom this holiday season.
There are a lot of great books you could give a child for their birthday or Christmas, but the historically inaccurate ramblings of college dropout former drug addict who is trying to make sure that Little Jimmy never passes social studies isn’t one of them.
The childhood trauma associated with getting this book could turn your grandbabies into same sex marriage supporting, atheistic Democrats. They will never forget their disappointment, and they will take out their frustration by rejecting everything that you and Rush Limbaugh stand for.
There is about to be an epidemic of disappointment sweeping the country this holiday season, as Rush Limbaugh’s book is about to replace a lump of coal as a child’s least favorite gift.

The Bush Burden

He’s there in every corner of Congress where a microphone fronts a politician, there in Russia and the British Parliament and the Vatican. You may think George W. Bush is at home in his bathtub, painting pictures of his toenails, but in fact he’s the biggest presence in the debate over what to do in Syria.

His legacy is paralysis, hypocrisy and uncertainty practiced in varying degrees by those who want to learn from history and those who deny it. Let’s grant some validity to the waffling, though none of it is coming from the architects of the worst global fiasco in a generation.

Time should not soften what President George W. Bush, and his apologists, did in an eight-year war costing the United States more than a trillion dollars, 4,400 American soldiers dead and the displacement of two million Iraqis. The years should not gauze over how the world was conned into an awful conflict. History should hold him accountable for the current muddy debate over what to do in the face of a state-sanctioned mass killer.

Blame Bush? Of course, President Obama has to lead; it’s his superpower now, his armies to move, his stage. But the prior president gave every world leader, every member of Congress a reason to keep the dogs of war on a leash. The isolationists in the Republican Party are a direct result of the Bush foreign policy. A war-weary public that can turn an eye from children being gassed — or express doubt that it happened — is another poisoned fruit of the Bush years. And for the nearly 200 members of both houses of Congress who voted on the Iraq war in 2002 and are still in office and facing a vote this month, Bush shadows them like Scrooge’s ghost.

That's just a little harsh coming from someone who never thought about writing a book, much less doing it. The lump of coal you talk about. I saw it given once...to my Grandfather as a joke. I suppose if it was given to you, there would be weeping and gnashing of teeth....

There are people on the public stage who have genuinely agonized over lessons of the Bush disaster. They say, with some conviction, that they will never be fooled again.

But for all of these neocons stuck on the wrong side of history — Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Bolton, say the names loud and clear — it’s not a change in conscience at work; it’s a change in presidents. Later this month, dozens of Republicans in Congress will make the same decision, simply because they hate Obama, and would oppose him if he declared Grandmother Appreciation Day.

The voice that stands out most by his silence, the one that grates with its public coyness, is Bush himself. He has refused to take a side in the Syrian conflict. The president, he said,“has a tough choice to make.” Beyond that,“I refuse to be roped in.”

This is cowardice on a grand scale. Having set in motion a doctrine that touches all corners of the earth and influences every leader with a say in how to approach tyrants who slaughter innocents, Bush retreats to his bathtub to paint.

Obama has already stated that he intends to intervene in Syria.
Listen to his words and not to the media spin.
The American people will reward the House for standing up to the fool Obama, who will plunge in regardless of the vote.
You are the one listening to the media spin. I HAVE been listening and Obama has said nothing about going against Congress if they turn him down...even though he has the legal right to do so. I imagine he is probably regretting his decision to take this issue to Congress in the first place. Let's face it...the House has never supported the President.

Obama's decision to consult Congress to placate public opinion has merely complicated matters. I expect if Congress votes down Obama, it will open the door for further chemical weapons attacks which Congress will have to shoulder as a result of their actions. That's fine with me as I expect other countries to take action even if the U.S. doesn't.

SYDNEY/CANBERRA (Reuters)- Australia's conservative leader Tony Abbott swept into office in national elections on Saturday as voters punished the outgoing Labor government for six years of turbulent rule and for failing to maximize the benefits of a now fading mining boom.

Abbott, a former boxer, Rhodes scholar and trainee priest, promised to restore political stability, cut taxes and crack down on asylum seekers arriving by boat.

"From today I declare that Australia is under new management and Australia is once more open for business," Abbott told jubilant supporters in Sydney.

Abbott, 55, built up a strong opinion poll lead on the back of promises to rein in government spending, scrap an unpopular tax on carbon emissions, and stop the flow of refugee boats arriving in Australia's northwest.

I agree with Lily, I hope Rand Paul is the Republican candidate. It will guarantee another political circus and a certain Republican loss. I'm not sure who is worse, Sarah Palin or Rand Paul but it will be entertaining.

so have you pre-ordered your copy? you can help create even more democrats by giving copies to all the little kids that you lure to your house. Rush probably even gives a discount for a case of them for people who have the same 'hobby' as he does.

We haven't been told what the objective is. We know the strike won't be aimed at taking out Assad or the chemical weapons. Obama made that clear. We know the strike will be "very limited" even though innocents will be killed.
So if Assad walks out of the ashes with his chemical weapons still intact and if the strike ends up killing civilians and pissing off Iran, Russia and China, what's the friggin' objective?
Which actually points to the more OBVIOUS scenerio, being--we cannot "bomb" chemical weapons. Period.

Therefore, what is the objective at all if "No boots on the ground"?

More Benghazi type LIES to America seems to be the only logic behind the irrationality of it all.

Actually when you poll on individual provisions of the ACA like Guaranteed issue, extended family coverage, elimination of lifetime caps, insurance rebates and so on they have majority support. It's the individual mandate that drags the whole thing down but it's the only way that things like covering those with pre existing conditions and eliminating the cap work. The only other option is single payer.
In other words, people like free lunch, but don't want to pay for it.
