I say shut it down. Either way you loons are going to blame the Republicans. Who cares? only 12% want this crap named after O'bama. When have the democrats ever governed for the will of the people during this O'bama administration?
Yes, the GOP wants the military side of Government to be safe from democracy and the real social needs of the people.

You are better off just sticking to posting your copy & paste propaganda zippy. Every time you get into a debate, you end up looking more and more like the fool you are.
yes, if taking over is protecting a country that you support from a military strike that would send the wrong message to the other countries you support, then you nailed it.

Nidal Hasan (the Ft. Hood shooter) lived in either Virginia (his state of residence prior to being sent to Ft. Hood) or Texas, neither of which has partisan registration. Therefore the claim that he was a "registered Democrat" is false. I do not know if he voted or how he voted, but I do know that unless he was registered in a state in which he did not reside, that the claim that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE.

If you want to get away with anything and not have to worry about being held accountable for anything, call yourself a liberal democrat. Works every time.

As long as the liberal media can keep half the country in the dark and the irrational repugnance against Fox continues - even though everyone who says they hate Fox say they never watch it - Obama is immune to any and all criticism and people like Valerie Jarrett have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Ignorance is bliss - except willful ignorance. That's dangerous.
As long as the media continues to pretend Obama is actually in charge on anything, Vallerie Jarrett is out of reach.
... well, until some different faction moves into the White House and discovers all the treason going on there today. Given the murderous episodes we've witnessed the White House cover up, there is likely hanging offenses happening.
It isn't likely those who are committing hanging offenses will every give up the position they now have and allow a subsequent authority investigate and expose them, try them, and execute those convicted.

They have no intention of ever leaving the White House and giving up that authority.

Putin is trying to lure Vallerie Jarrett into starting a war.
The fact is, the United States has no credibility in the world. Everyone knows Obama isn't in charge of anything. And, everyone agreed with Putin when he called the Secretary of State of the United States a liar on the world's stage.
What that means is, nothing the United States says will be taken seriously by any country.
The Obama administration has made us more isolated in the world than ever before. Any action we take, we will be alone. That is easy pickings.
Because the only likely outcome of the Assad government falling is Al Qaeda taking over Syria, the obvious conclusion should be we should just stay out of it.
If we had a competent leader, we wouldn't have stumbled into this obvious trap and we would have some respect and support in the world. And, we would have an option other than starting a war to deal with the situation.
We were doomed the minute the Obama administration joined Al Qaeda. This is merely fallout from that decision.
You must be overjoyed that Obama outsmarted the warmongers John McCain, Lindsey Graham , and James Inhofe with John Kerry 's smart diplomacy to get Russia and Assad to disarm themselves of chemical weapons in Syria with United Nations help. It saves the U S from having to get more directly militarily involved in Syria , and brings China and Iran on board with Europe and the United States to negotiate an end to the civil war . Hooray for Obama's America and smart power!

Climate Panel Cites Near Certainty on Warming
The draft comes from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body of several hundred scientists that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, along with Al Gore. Its summaries, published every five or six years, are considered the definitive assessment of the risks of climate change, and they influence the actions of governments around the world. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent on efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions, for instance, largely on the basis of the group’s findings.

You're absolutely right. A big reason for exploding health care costs. If they had to pay out of pocket for doctor visits there wouldn't be a lot of this waste. The real fix is known however it won't allow control. That is the reason.

Tropical Storm ObamaCare on Path to Category 5 Hurricane
Obamacare has been likened to a “disaster,” a “trainwreck” and other implacable forces of nature or accident that gouge out the health, wealth and well-being of a community.
The numbers of people affected just last week by the looming implementation of Obamacare easily numbers in the tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands.
Thousands of part-time employees at the boutique grocery chainTrader Joe’s, for example, were told last week that they’d be losing benefits in favor of a $500 stipend for exchange-based healthcare.
Some of those employees will pay more now for health insurance, some will pay a bit less.
But however those employees make out, the rest of us will pay more as Obamacare costs start to mount.
“Trader Joe's is essentially SHIFTING THE COSTS it used to pay for health insurance onto the federal government,” admits the Washington Post, one of Obamacare’s top proponents.
Trader Joe’s joins IBM, UPS, and the City of Chicago as the most high profile institutions that have shifted the cost of employee benefits to Uncle Same Ole, Same Ole.
It's going to continue to be a mess and an impending disaster until Republicans finally have a chance at bat again to repeal the darn thing.

After all the damage the Democrats did with the bad mortgage crisis and now Obamacare and an incompetent leader with all the baggage of his party dragging us all down, Republicans haven't even been able to prove they actually DO have solutions.

We'd already been in the process of healing with a Republican Mitt Romney and a Republican Congress passing mandatory reforms and giving people back their lives and hope for the future.

But liberals keep voting for the "kick the can down the road so we don't have to make any important decisions that might cost us a few votes" liberal democrats.

Until enough of them have also had enough, we're stuck. If in 2014 and 2016, they haven't figured it out by then, we're not only stuck - we're sunk.

i still blame the Tea Party.

so we do you nutjobs get so riled up every time there's a mass shooting? 2nd amendment reflex? so...let's not talk about guns. just everything else.

nope. i want to talk about guns. and so do a lot of other people.

Just five months ago, a mile and a half away at the U.S. Capitol, the U.S. Senate defeated a compromise proposal to expand background checks on gun purchases, despite vast public support for the proposal.

The gun control proposals had followed the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December, where a deranged gunman killed 20 children and six educators before taking his own life. The Senate proposal would have required background checks for sales at gun shows and the Internet, closing glaring loopholes in current law.

Is there a place in America that hasn't been touched by a mass shooting? Has it become part of life in this country? About 3,000 people, military and civilian, work in the building where the shooting took place. We ask for senators who voted against the gun control bill to go down there tomorrow and look them in the eye.

Let’s Not Wait to Talk About Gun Control

Thirteen people are dead at the Washington Navy Yard. It’s not too soon to talk about gun control again.

I write on the day of the killing. Gun enthusiasts say it is inappropriate to talk about gun violence at the time it occurs. Better to wait … and wait … and wait … until time has passed, and the weeping next of kin have vanished from TV, and it’s safe to return to business as usual. The idea of the gun enthusiasts is that the way to show respect for the victims of gun violence is to do everything possible to multiply their number.

Yet the gun enthusiasts do have one point on their side: for all the horror of these massacres, they are only a small part of the story of gun violence in America. Most casualties of gun violence will not die at the hands of a mentally disturbed killer seeking random victims. Most gun casualties occur in the course of quarrels and accidents between people who would be described as “law-abiding, responsible gun owners” up until the moment that they lost their temper or left a weapon where a four-year-old could find it and kill himself or his sister.

Carol doesn't care hw any times Fox has been caught in lies.

That's the problem with these right whiners. Their news source gets debunked & they still keep believing them.

So Carol why do't you research the voting registration laws in Virginia & Texas & see if you need to declare a party when you register to vote instead of just calling everyone a liar.
