Barack Obama, our next President

Can you think of any other issue where the President has been so out-of-touch with the people?

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
Just curious, do you think that Obama was the first black president because before people only wanted a white president.

Do you also believe that the Magic Negro's proselytizing and calling the world to action in Syria is a moral imperative especially coming from a schmuck who lies, cheats and reverses himself often?
Would you be willing to follow a Bernie Madoff, P.T. Barnum or Charles Ponzi because they claimed to have stumbled upon a moral imperative that needs addressing?
Or would you yawn widely and tell them to go yell "Wolf!" somewhere else?
Government, especially government under this azzhole, has no business talking about the morality of chemical weapon usage when the Boy Messiah's drones have killed more women and children peripherally than anyone's use of WMD in Syria.
This is why I keep a skeptical eye toward Federal Government PSA's.
What would be your reaction to a Boy Messiah Federal PSA showing a suffering old lady in a shoe with 13 starving kids and then concludes by pushing government-funded abortion as a human moral imperative? Shades of 1984, Fahrenheit 451,.....
You are so right. Up until now, for over 200 years the white presidents have done such a great job.

Soldiers Protesting the War on Reddit Dishonor Their Oath of Service

Soldiers in uniform have been holding antiwar signs in front of their faces and posting the pictures to Reddit. Army veteran Garrett Berntsen explains why they should be punished.

On September 1, Business Insider published an article about recent posts on Reddit’s military site that showed service members in uniform holding signs over their faces protesting the president’s policy toward Syria. Since then a host of other media outlets have picked up on the story and Reddit/Military has been flooded with posts on both sides of the argument. In an all-volunteer force that defends a nation with a free and healthy discourse surrounding our foreign policy, these photos come closer to treason than whistleblowing.

Dissent in the ranks is not novel; it’s a tradition as old as military service. What’s new is soldiers’ ability to leverage social media to broadcast their views and the amplifying affect that occurs when the social media buzz is then picked up by major media outlets. It’s a process that has the potential to report on important stories drawn from within the ranks but it can also, as in the recent Reddit case, transform commonplace barracks gripes into national news. What some press outlets have depicted as widespread dissent within the military is really just a symptom of the newfound ability to anonymously question national security decisions without facing consequences.

The soldiers in this case are not only openly challenging the decisions being made by their commander in chief, a violation of their oaths under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, they are also shamefully utilizing the authority of their uniform to promote their own political views.

Enlisting in the military does not mean forgoing the rights of citizenship, soldiers can vote and out of uniform are free to express their political opinions. But when service members swear the oath they promise not to use the uniform to promote their own political views, whether they are for or against current policies. It’s a willful choice that every member of the military has made at a time when serving has never been less compulsory. The soldiers in these photos were not drafted and they all have plenty of other options if they no longer believe in the leadership of the Commander in Chief or their own ability to follow lawful orders.

They can file paperwork to exit the military If they no longer have a service obligation, they may need only to begin processing paperwork to enter a non-deployable status and then begin the process of exiting the military. For those who can’t wait that long to get out, they can file paperwork to officially become Conscientious Objectors. A quick Google search turns up a number of resources that help soldiers with principled objections to war file petitions to exit the military. Under the right circumstances these individuals could be given honorable discharges and retain their veterans' benefits.

Of course, service members could also protest by taking another photo criticizing the president but this time not hide their faces and nametapes. Assuredly, their chain of command would ensure that they will never serve in Syria should we put troops on the ground there. A quick release from the services could then follow, though not likely under advantageous circumstances.

It’s not a sense of duty but self-interest that keeps these service members from leaving the military and entering the civilian world. Once out of uniform they would be free to voice any political opinion they wished but would be doing so without a government paycheck and outside of TRICARE and the military healthcare system’s ubiquitous protection. They want their cake and free healthcare too, the honor of wearing the uniform without the risk of serving at the will of the executive branch. This is not how it works, and if they somehow missed this when they signed up then they need to realize it quickly.

Asking that active duty members of the military honor their oath and refrain from politics in no way muffles national debate around defense and security issues. Rather, it protects a basic principle of our democracy—that the armed services do not dictate policy but carry out the will of the people and their elected leaders.

Debate and avenues for dissent were already wide open without the Reddit posts and will remain so. Since the president decided to take his case to Congress, there are Congressional office phones ringing from constituents sharing their opinions on the use of force in Syria. Voices on all sides of the issue are being heard within Washington and in news outlets, blogs, and social media platforms.

What’s clear is that the individuals who posted on Reddit did so, not to force a conversation that wouldn’t have happened without them, but as a self-aggrandizing stunt. Those who participated or supported the Reddit posters should be mindful of the allies they make through this sort of cheap publicity and consider that a pro-Syrian Army hacker group cracked a Marine Corps website and posted a message cheering the public dissent and calling for service members to refuse their orders.

When we put on the uniform we knowingly sacrifice a portion of our rights to free speech in order to protect all rights held sacred by our Constitution. By using the uniform to gain attention and try to influence the debate on Syria, a few service members are dishonoring this legacy.

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.

Maybe you can see it in a different light now.
All of your other claims are just that. Claims without substance.
I hate to be a nitpicker Carol, but that You Tube exchange happened in 2011, not in 2007 like you claimed. Do try to keep up with the rest of the class. I'm not going to let you go off on a tangent about marijuana laws to avoid the discussion at hand.
I'm not making any claims about Romney's lies, they're documented.
Mitt Romney in a campaign speech in Defiance Ohio on October 25, 2012;
"I saw a story today, that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China," he said, to boos from the audience. "I will fight for every good job in America. I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair, America will win."
Even after that story was refuted by Chrysler he doubled down on it with a TV ad;
"Who will do more for the auto industry? Not Barack Obama," the ad began, adding, "Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job."
His line about fighting for every American job is laughable considering the fact that workers from Sensata in Illinois asked him to intercede when Bain was shipping their entire plant to China and got the cold shoulder.
Romney TV Ad,“Right Choice”: President Obama quietly announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements. Under Obama’s plan, you wouldn’t have to work and wouldn’t have to train for a job. They just send you your welfare check. And welfare-to-work goes back to being plain old welfare. Mitt Romney will restore the work requirement because it works.
It’s simply not true that the administration’s policy will allow states to “just send you your welfare check.” Under the policy, states must meet a whole new set of federal requirements in order to obtain and keep a waiver. Plus, states have an incentive to get people off welfare and into jobs, since that would free TANF funds for other services for low-income families.
On June 28, 2012 Romney stated in prepared remarks;
" ‘Obamacare’ puts the federal government between you and your doctor."

If the health care law did get between doctors and patients, you would think most doctors would complain loudly. While some do, the leading physician advocacy group, the American Medical Association, does not. On the contrary, the AMA supports the law.

After the Supreme Court upheld the health reform act, AMA president Jeremy Lazarus issued a statement praising the decision, because the law "will allow patients to see their doctors earlier rather than waiting for treatment until they are sicker and care is more expensive."
I don't just pull stuff out of my anal orifice like you do Carol, like your claim that the House was putting forth legislation when in fact it wasn't even in session.

What, if anything, did president Trayvon say about Saddam gassing the Kurds?
I have some news, Stevie. Sadam used chemical weapons in the late 80's & Obama was not President.

Maybe you should ask Reagan why he did nothing.

We were allied more with Iraq after what happened in Iran back then, different era libtard.

Now it's not an issue because under Obama, we have no allies as he is the laughing stock of the international community, Reichtard.

History lesson: When the United States looked the other way on chemical weapons

.....the Reagan administration knew full well it was selling materials to Iraq that was being used for the manufacture of chemical weapons, and that Iraq was using such weapons, but U.S. officials were more concerned about whether Iran would win rather than how Iraq might eke out a victory. Dobbs noted that Iraq’s chemical weapons’ use was “hardly a secret, with the Iraqi military issuing this warning in February 1984:”The invaders should know that for every harmful insect, there is an insecticide capable of annihilating it ... and Iraq possesses this annihilation insecticide.”

In 1988, Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein ordered chemical weapons attacks against Kurdish resistance forces, but the relationship with Iraq at the time was deemed too important to rupture over the matter. The United States did not even impose sanctions.

Without much apparent irony, two decades later Rumsfeld and other members of the then George W. Bush administration repeatedly cited Hussein’s use of chemical weapons against own people as a justification for invading Iraq.

The Dems passed Obamacare despite to this day still unwanted by the majority.
Why would this be any different?
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.

Rush Limbaugh has written a kid's book called—wait for it—"Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans." It's being published on October 29th.
Here is the cover:....
Eagle-eyed readers might have noticed that Limbaugh appears to have turned himself into American revolutionary hero Paul Revere—an audacious move, certainly. Rush Revere also happens to be the main character in Limbaugh's iced tea line, "Two If By Tea."
Here's how Limbaugh described the book:
Rush Revere is a substitute school teacher at a middle school anywhere in America, and he will take a couple of students with him to the first Thanksgiving, and they will learn all about it. Again it is a unique way of reaching the target audience here, which is America's young people -- who are, sadly, not being taught what is in this book. And what's in this book is the historical record, accurate historical record of the Pilgrims. It's who they were, why they existed, where they were, how they got here, what they did when they got here, and what they did and why it mattered and related to the founding of this country.
There's also going to be an audiobook, which we assume Limbaugh will be reading. All parents will probably want to tuck their children in at night and switch on the smooth sounds of Rush Limbaugh holding forth about American history.

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.
