Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

LOL
It's called "checks and balances" to keep one branch of government from becoming too powerful.

I know you've been brainwashed, but this is elementary.

Clinton's Republican Congress, for example, made him look GOOOOD.

Putin on Assad Face

The Russian president’s lecture about peace in Syria is all hypocrisy and lies.

How cute. A lecture on nonviolence from Syria’s chief arms supplier.

In July, the United Nations’ Independent International Commission of Inquiry for Syria reported a “shipment by the Russian Federation of S-300 missile batteries” to Assad. This week, the commission added that “pre-conflict arms deals between Moscow and Damascus continue to be honored.” Human Rights First notes that “Russian officials have said they will not halt arms sales to the Assad regime so long as such sales are not prohibited by the U.N. Security Council.” In a delightful Catch-22, HRF points out that Russia itself has blocked such attempts at prohibition within the council.

.....read the report from the Human Rights Watch monitor in Syria:

“We have tried again and again to convince Moscow to play a constructive role to resolve the Syrian crisis—to use its influence with al-Assad to stop the attacks on civilians; to work with the moderate parts of the opposition; to assist with aid delivery to thousands of displaced people in opposition-controlled areas; and to support international efforts to bring war criminals on both sides to justice.… Moscow consistently refused, for example, to support a U.N. Commission of Inquiry into the situation in Syria.”

That’s the reality of Russia’s conduct. In Moscow, a state-controlled TV network suggested last night that for brokering peace in Syria, Putin deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. I’d nominate him for a different prize: an Oscar.

Don't ever call anyone an idiot again.
According to an MSNBC report:
According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the Obama administration has launched 293 drone attacks in Pakistan alone, as compared to 52 strikes under the Bush administration. The bureau estimates that between 2,565 and 3,329 people have been killed, among whom 474 to 884 were civilians. However, distinguishing militants from civilians in the drone war is notoriously difficult. According to The New York Times' sources, the administration "in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants...unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent."
"Living Under Drones," a book written by Sarah Knuckey, a professor in the NYU School of Law's Global Justice Clinic, she and her co-authors interviewed 69 "experiential victims" (people whose lives had been directly affected by drone strikes). The people of that region "have a constant fear that they'll be hit, even though they know they're civilians."
"There's a pervasive fear for people every second of the day," she said. "It has a significant mental health impact for people living there."

Try and imagine hearing drones hovering over your house any time of the day or night. You can't because you're a liberal.

LCN, if Republicans had controlled both houses of Congress in 2009, Obamacare would be nothing more than a footnote in this administration's legacy.

But Democrats had the power in the Senate to push it down our throats with Obama's blessing.

See how it works now?

Fed Up with Republicans, Senate Dems Say No Healthcare If You Used a Hooker
As part of Republicans “gotcha” moments in the healthcare debate, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) proposed an amendment to force Congress and their staff to buy health insurance through ObamaCare. To his surprise, Democrats welcomed it and it became the Grassley Amendment.
Recently, Republican Senator David Vitter (R-LA) of the hookers and diapers scandal (this is relevant) has been pushing an amendment in an unrelated bill that would keep the federal government from making payments for health insurance that members of Congress buy.
Democrats are responding by “playing the hooker card”, as Politico put it. According to draft legislation obtained by Politico, Senate Democrats are ready to hit Vitter where it hurts.“If Vitter continues to insist on a vote on his proposal, Democrats could counter with one of their own: Lawmakers will be denied those government contributions if there is “probable cause” they solicited prostitutes.”
....Democrats are signaling that they are done tolerating Republican ObamaCare obstruction. If Republicans want to continue refusing to do the people’s work and refusing to admit that ObamaCare is not only the law of the land but was upheld by a very conservative Supreme Court, then Democrats are going to fight back and it won’t be pretty.
See, today everyone will be talking about David Vitter and his diaper penchant and whether or not, especially in light of Weiner and Spitzer’s fate, he should even be in the Senate. And the Democrats haven’t even proposed this amendment yet. All they did was draft it.
Speak softly and carry a big stick indeed. Republicans, you might want to meet the new Democrats.

The Congress is to use health exchanges per the original Obamacare bill.

Prior to going to break, Congress voted an exemption for themselves.

Try to keep up with current events.

you once again left out who was actually to blame.
US Sponsored Genocide Against Iraq 1990-2012. Killed 3.3 Million, Including 750,000 Children
In an address last Nov. 22 to The International Conference on War-affected Children in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Boyle tallied the death toll on Iraq by U.S.-U.K. actions as follows:
# The slaughter of 200,000 Iraqis by President Bush in his illegal 1991 Gulf War I.
# The deaths of 1.4 million Iraqis as a result of the illegal 2003 war of aggression ordered by President Bush Jr. and Prime Minister Blair.
# The deaths of 1.7 million Iraqis “as a direct result” of the genocidal sanctions.
Boyle’s class-action complaint demanded an end to all economic sanctions against Iraq; criminal proceedings for genocide against President George H.W. Bush; monetary compensation to the children of Iraq and their families for deaths, physical and mental injury; and for shipping massive humanitarian relief supplies to that country.

Obama's ignorance and buffoonery have put us in a position where we have to start a war with Syria to have any input. The world gave Obama a vote of no confidence, so anything we do, we will be doing without any support from any other country... which is like you used to say was the case with Bush when you lied about what was happening during that administration.

Because this administration is so ignorant, and walked bumbling stumbling into a trap a blind person could see, we cannot assert ourselves without starting a war with Syria.

What the world did was shut Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood out of the process. Now, Obama has to sabotage the process to satisfy Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Way to go, Mr. Nobel Peace Prize Idiot President.

So?

Krauthammer blasts the Justice Dept claim of imminent treat as justification for the drone attacks.

Krauthammer is discussing the legal basis for drone strikes and in no way implies all drone strikes are verified strikes on al-Qaeda -which according to Krauthammer is covered under the Congress’s Authorization for Use of Military Force — against al-Qaeda and those who harbor and abet it.(Such resolutions are the contemporary equivalent of a declaration of war, as evidenced in the 1991 Persian Gulf War and the 2003 Iraq War.)
