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

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.

So let me see if I have this right.

Even though it's been reported on numerous sites that the survivors of Benghazi are being silent and away from the press...and even though three whistleblowers did come forward and were promptly demoted after Obama announced he encouraged whistleblowing...you know firsthand, up close, and personal that this isn't happening?

How do you know this as an absolute fact in light of the above?

You don't really seem to know a lot about current events as has been proven before.

Tell me you know the whistleblowers were demoted at least.

nice. classy as a FOX talking head.
What is really classy is O'bama yapping about gun control with the black shooting people while O'bama was speaking.
O'bama keeping it classy and DiFi fake Jew stein was doing the same thing. But the shooter had O'bamacare--pre-existing conditions and all.

Navy Yard Shooting Revives Ghosts for Newtown Families
Gun control advocates making their last-minute preparations for a lobbying trip to Capitol Hill were shaken by the mass shooting that claimed the lives of 12 people at the Navy Yard, but they say they are determined to continue their push for stricter legislation.
Nine months after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre left 26 dead, including 20 children, many of those grieving families, as well as families and victims of other gun related tragedies planned to return to Washington to try to jumpstart an issue that seems to have lost some of the urgency it had.
"It all comes flooding back to you," said Darren Wagner, the father of two children who survived the Newtown, Conn., shooting. "It makes me angry as a dad, as a police officer, as a first responder."
Wagner, a former police officer, is one of more than 90 advocates with Newtown Action Alliance who are scheduled to arrive in Washington today in a pre-planned trip to jump start conversations in Congress on background check legislation.
They have more than 40 meetings planned with Congressional offices this week, and plan to hold a press conference with Newtown families on Wednesday. A rally with gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is planned for Thursday.

<quoted text> 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!

The truth apparently scares the living hell out of liberals. It's why Obama went on the warpath against Fox News early on - half the country wasn't so easily duped. The media must be willing to remain silent for radical liberals to do their thing without anyone being held accountable.
Most conservatives don't watch FoxNews any more or less than other news sources and feel no need to either defend or criticize same.

Leftwingers like Jean from Queens prefer the environmentally destructive dead tree media so are always up to speed on yesterday's news.

Opponents of gun control argue that, instead of infringing Second Amendment rights, we should focus on the fact that most, if not all, of these mass shooters are psychologically disturbed. But many of the officials who take this view are simultaneously trying their best to repeal Obamacare, which will provide access to mental health services to millions of Americans who are now uninsured.
So what difference did it really make what motivated Monday’s shooting? Beyond tightening security at military bases, what is our sclerotic political system capable of doing to prevent the next slaughter of innocents?

the tea party movement and the religious right are not the same thing...

no need to tell them off with obscenities as you would, but instead decline to become involved in the issue...

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.
I have yet to hear someone name the "lies" told by Fox.

Not telling the truth is a lie. The liberal media do it all the time.

There is no mass shooting devastating enough, disgusting enough or shocking enough that the U.S. Congress would be moved to enact reasonable gun legislation like the measures proposed in April by President Obama after 20 first-graders were mowed down last year in Newtown, Conn.[...]
And, as it turns out, when you are the NRA or in its pocket, there is never a "right time" to talk about rational gun measures.
So here we are again, another mass shooting in the news, another moment when gun control advocates must once again lean into the fray and not allow themselves be intimidated by people who would rather offer a prayer for the dead than do anything to prevent more killing.

The majority now disapprove of Obama's leadership.

You have to stop living in the past. More and more people are admitting the emperor has no clothes.

You've been duped, my friend. Hate to be the one to tell you.

You can stop pretending you see something that isn't there out of desperation. It's okay. Really it is.

...a rush to judge, selling papers, or idiots...

"...Under the headline "Same Gun Different Slay," the Daily News used a photo of an AR-15 rifle and asserted that the "maniac" Alexis used the "Newtown weapon..."

but,

"...Pete Williams of NBC News reported on-air Tuesday that Alexis brought only a shotgun with him to the scene..."

You're actually right. CNN, for example, is finally leaving the media camp of liberal ideology imprisonment because Fox was whipping their ass in ratings.

Even CBS has become more neutral and is beginning to report the actual news and not the power elite's talking points.

Heck, even Chris Matthews on MSNBC has lost the thrill up his leg.
