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 stronger now than ever. A good leader is not arrogant. He must be capable of changing his direction when circumstances change and Obama has proven he is a true leader. He will look like a miracle worker if the Putin plan works. If it fails, he will be praised for leaving no stone unturned toward a peaceful resolution.
What kind of drugs are you smoking? Obama looks like exactly what he is, a weak leader who changes his words like the wind, has no realistic plan, and is flying by the seat of his pants.

Incredible, indeed.
He's the absentee president who expects his "fellow Americans" to rally around him at a time when he finds himself backed into a corner when he has done nothing except lie and deceive us and polarize us from the first day he was in office.
Incredulous is more like it.
Has anyone else noticed his movie directors always have him walk down that long hallway to the Teleprompter like he was Jesus entering Jerusalem? I'm waiting for them to begin using CGI to frame his glorious head with a halo and his body with heavenly aura.

Past Presidents would simply enter the Press Room stage right, say what they will and then leave.

This jerk does a Rodeo Drive wiggle down that dammed hallway like he was on display to portraits of American heroes with Rose Petals being thrown before him. Nero didn't have it this good while fiddling during Rome's demise.

This Presidency is wholly image without substance. Madison Ave., Hollywood and RockStar Theatrics rolled into one big ball of dung.

Syrian opposition activists tell NBC News that Bashar Assad is getting away with having used chemical weapons to massacre hundreds of civilians and that giving the regime a pass will only benefit al-Qaeda extremists.

“If there is no action, everyone will be desperate. We are already desperate. We are dying. Many will join al-Qaeda. Even the educated will join them, because no one else is helping,” a Syrian rebel said.

There is a battle underway within the Syrian revolt -- a war within the war -- between the generally moderate US-backed Free Syrian Army and Islamic extremist groups.

The Free Syrian Army put its faith in Washington, which promised action, but so far hasn’t delivered. The moderates say they have lost hope and face. Islamists, on the other hand, always doubted Washington would act, and instead of attending meetings, they are putting bullets in their guns; and they are sending men.

He is accepting a penalty for something his military did not do?
who says he is? I want to know why you keep saying that he admitted using chemical weapons. Put your link up. Show the class all your proof.

The fact is that if assad is disposed in Syria nothing will change. The various sects will continue to kill those who belong to other sects. They have doing it for what 1500 years? No matter what the US does or does not do nothing will change. Hopefully president nobama will not make a strike. It would be a waste of American resources.

Just how old are you anyways(mentally)?

Talk is cheap - that's why you and the Boy Messiah do so much of it - and, in diplomacy, talk is far cheaper than explosions.

So Putin suggests, Assad agrees and the Magic Negro accepts so we can then all go back home to Chicago and the golf course.

Don't you get it?

People were commenting that due to the high angel of the shot, rather than making Obama appear imperial just simply made him look small.
