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

Obama is a farce, an international joke.
Putin will do nothing except to help Assad.
Syria has never officially recognized it has such weapons. To the Russians, that means it is probably case closed. Nothing to see there, folks. Let's move it along.

<quoted text>Of course Benghazi comes to mind. The great O'bama hesitated and left our people to die. How many hours did they wait to die because O'bama was reluctant to take ANY action? Good point on "Reluctant O'bama". "Impotent O'bama". "Unable to make a decision O'bama".
Now maybe he just had a good hand and needed to get back to his card game. He made a decision......"let them die".

I love his speech last night about how we can't fail to do something....Wonder why? Perhaps people will die like in Benghazi. So he is worried about the people in Libya and can't accept doing nothing while they die, but AMERICAN'S working for HIM, the Commander-in-Chief, are on their own. Who's side is he on anyway? Must be a hell of a hand, I wonder what he's betting?

My take Carol is that Putin would never have come to this proposal if the President hadn't shown the willingness to drop the hammer on Assad. This put Putin in a box where he could either side with as a mass murderer and get into a pissing contest with the US or save face and come up with a plan to take the chemical weapons off the table. Putin may be an egotistical show boat but he's not crazy.
Obama surrendered when he decided to let Congress vote, a vote he knew he could not win....

Putin jumped on this weakness and Kerry's sloppy mouth...

Its good to see the leftist phags trying to put a brave face on. Let's recap what happened just yesterday:

1)Odumbo was totally usurped and embarrassed by Vladimir Putin.

2)Facing certain defeat in both the house and senate, odumbo begged them not to vote (to avoid losing further face in a crushing defeat).

3)Two Colorado dumocratic Senators were fired from their jobs for overstepping their boundaries on gun control.

4)Putin decided to send missile defense systems to Iraq, as well as help them build more nuclear reactors.

5)The house finalized a plan to defund odumbocare, the world's greatest ponzi scheme.

Still having your little pep-rally, phags?:-)

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- All U.S. states except for Delaware have escaped the possibility of falling back into recession, as they reap the rewards of strong private-sector employment and a burgeoning energy sector, according to an analysis released on Tuesday.
Moody's Analytics, which tracks state and metropolitan economies, added Illinois, Wisconsin and Alabama to its list of states in recovery. That left Delaware alone in its "at risk of recession" category.
Moody's Analytics, a unit of Moody's evaluates economics and financial risk around the world. A separate unit, the credit ratings agency Moody's Investors Service, recently said the outlook for states is now stable, after five years of being negative.
"The labor market recoveries in those three states were lagging behind," said Moody's Analytics Associate Economist Brent Campbell.
But over the last six months, private-sector jobs have grown in Alabama. Chicago, where the financial services sector is strong, is leading the Illinois economy into stable territory.
Good job President Obama.

he's really got you wingnuts running in circles.

tomorrow Putin will say 'Let's bomb them!' and the conversion of American conservatives to communism will come to a screeching halt.

tomorrow Obama will say 'Let's not bomb them!' and you will suddenly find your neocon side that you had to suppress so you could keep hating on Obama.

Syria chemical attacks: What we know

Since the early hours of 21 August when graphic footage started to flood social media sites of an alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians living in the agricultural belt around Damascus, experts have been piecing together the evidence to try to establish what happened.

A report from the New York-based Human Rights Watch is the latest to blame Syrian government forces for carrying out the attacks, which left hundreds of people dead in the Ghouta area on the outskirts of Damascus.

Human Rights Watch says 330mm surface-to-surface rockets were used to attack Zamalka in Eastern Ghouta on 21 August. At least four strike sites have been found.
From remnants of the weapons, HRW has reconstructed the characteristics of the rocket, which, it says, was capable of carrying up to 60 litres of chemical nerve agent.
The payload of the rocket consisted of a large, thin-walled container. A small explosive charge at the front detonated on impact and ruptured the skin of the payload, dispersing the chemicals.

Initial reports and video footage of the attack emerged from social media sources, making the claims difficult to verify and causing many to reserve judgement on whether chemical weapons were actually used.

Despite this, chemical weapons experts said the large volume of visual evidence would be difficult to fake.

Three days after the attack, medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres confirmed that three hospitals it supports in Damascus had treated about 3,600 patients with "neurotoxic symptoms" on the day of the attack. They said 355 of these had died.

Medical experts said large numbers of patients displayed convulsions, pinpointed pupils, excessive saliva and difficulty in breathing - all tell-tale signs of nerve agent poisoning thought most likely to be sarin. They were treated with atropine and other known antidotes, which the medics said worked in many cases, despite the hospitals running out of treatments.
