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

Hull's divorce records weren't leaked to the press you damned liar, he released them under public pressure. They showed him to be an abusive spouse with anger management problems and poor impulse control under pressure.
Jack Ryan's records were released by a judge pursuant to a request from the Chicago Tribune. If you're into taking your wife to sex clubs for group hanky panky you probably shouldn't run for public office since it will leak out. None of these had anything to do with the Obama campaign nit wit.
Actually, no. You're wrong about everything.

They were sealed and were leaked by someone in the Obama camp - Axelrod, most likely. His ex-wife's lawyer included his sexual fantasy in the divorce papers in the event she could blackmail him for a larger settlement. Which she did.

None of those things actually happened.

Repeat after me..."none of those things actually happened." It was a sex "fantasy". He just made the mistake of sharing it with his ex-wife.

So stop being so gullible. It's really annoying.

I have news, spending more than revenues raises the debt.
When Congress passing spending that they know they add to the debt, don't they know they will surpass that debt ceiling? This is why the debt ceiling is stupid & should be eliminated.
Evidently, Flack thinks not paying his bills is keeping him out of debt.
Suppose you spend more money this month than your income. This situation is called a "budget deficit". So you borrow (ie; use your credit card). The amount you borrowed (and now owe) is called your debt. You have to pay interest on your debt. If next month you spend more than your income, another deficit, you must borrow some more, and you'll still have to pay the interest on your debt (now larger). If you have a deficit every month, you keep borrowing and your debt grows. Soon the interest payment on your loan is bigger than any other item in your budget. Eventually, all you can do is pay the interest payment, and you don't have any money left over for anything else. This situation is known as bankruptcy.
"Reducing the deficit" is a meaningless soundbite. If the DEFICIT is any amount more than ZERO, we have to borrow more and the DEBT grows.

Each year since 1969, Congress has spent more money than its income. The Treasury Department has to borrow money to meet Congress's appropriations. Here is a direct link to the Congressional Budget Office web site's deficit analysis. We have to pay interest* on that huge, growing debt; and it cuts into our budget big time.

You want to let these clowns spend unchecked by getting rid of the debt ceiling. What a moran!!!

The point of no return was decisively breached in the year 2010 (see chart above). Although per capita personal income had grown to $40,441, each citizenís portion of the national debt soared to $43,732. The national debt represented 92.5% of gross domestic product and 108.1% of personal income, on a per capita basis. The situation has worsened through the end of the first quarter of 2011 with per capita personal income of $41,486, versus per capita national debt of $45,782. Through March of 2011, the national debt now represents 95.1% of gross domestic product and 110.4% of personal income, on a per capita basis.

[In contrast, at the end of 2008 per capita personal income stood at $40,469, while each citizenís share of the national debt was $32,886. In 2008, the national debt represented 69.8% of GDP and 80.9% of personal income, on a per capita basis. Although the United States government was dangerously close in 2008, it had not yet surpassed the point of no return.]

It's you who is gullible. It was his wife who put the smackdown on his campaign. Good for her, he was a sleazeball, but you would prefer a sleazeball who forces his wife into group sex and degrading sexual games to a wonderful family man; why? Because he's white, so it's alright? You're sick in the head.
Remember the Bush campaign smears to McCain about his daughter who is adopted? They called her his love child.
Remember the Arkansas Project? Richard Mellon Scaife? His campaign against Bill Clinton?
the Republicans are the dirtiest campaigners ever in history. You're delusional as ever.

his might not be as big of a deal if the United States ever paid down its debt, but I can only find six years since 1929 where this actually occurred Ė 1930, 1947, 1948, 1951, 1956, and 1957. There is no chance of fiscal recovery with a president who, in the face of financial disaster, dares to submit a budget containing multi-trillion dollar per year deficits into the future. Until the right leadership is in place, you, I, our children and our grandchildren can look forward to living in a nation which basically owns us. Is this the same Republic that we inherited from our forefathers? I think, not.

Barack Obama has taken this nation in precisely the wrong direction; he has taken us beyond the point of no return. Yet there is still hope, but such hope, of necessity, lies beyond the realm of partisan politicians. Faith without works is dead. This isnít World War II. Itís time to dramatically reduce the federal governmentís footprint. Itís time to cut government spending. Itís time to lower (not raise) the debt ceiling. Tomorrow will be too late.

Rightwinger's cheating other rightwingers.

From Flack's favorite sport -

Facing the biggest credibility crisis in its long history, NASCAR issued a stern warning to its drivers and teams Saturday and said it won't tolerate any more attempts to alter the outcome of races.

After a scandal-filled week spent investigating teams and undoing attempts to manipulate its championship field, NASCAR came forward with a series of rules that will change the way teams have called races for years.

NASCAR Chairman Brian France told teams he expects them "to give 100 percent" at all times, meeting with them for nearly 20 minutes at Chicagoland Speedway on the eve of the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

"I think we wanted to be very clear and we wanted to reinforce the cornerstone of NASCAR, which is giving your all," France said. "We addressed team rules, a variety of other things, all designed to do what our fans expect, and that means that their driver and their team give 100 percent to finish as high up in a given race as possible. We were very clear about that. That's our expectations."

The warning came after an unprecedented week for NASCAR, which has been rocked by allegations of race-fixing since Clint Bowyer spun his car with seven laps remaining last Saturday night at Richmond, the race that completed the 12-driver field for the Chase.

NASCAR was forced to investigate when it became clear that Bowyer spun in an attempt to stop leader Ryan Newman from winning and give teammate Martin Truex Jr. one last chance to earn a Chase berth. The investigation uncovered at least three instances of race manipulations and led to severe sanctions against Michael Waltrip Racing and the removal of unwitting participant Truex from the Chase in favor of Newman.

The central piece of evidence was radio communications, and the penalties against MWR set off a chain of events NASCAR never anticipated.

Next came allegations of a scheme to sell track position and it triggered a new investigation involving deep-pocketed Penske Racing and tiny Front Row Motorsports.

Lindsey Graham Clowns Tea Party Republicans Who Want To Defund Obamacare But Don't Know How
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham joked on Tuesday that the inescapable fact that shutting down the government will not stop Obamacare was merely a "technical" detail that doesn't interest Republicans bent on a shutdown.
The irony of the ongoing debate over the threat to shut the government in order to stop the health care reform law is that because of the way Obamacare is funded, doing so will leave it largely unaffected. Most of Obamacare is funded through what's known as mandatory spending, while the House only has the power to block discretionary funding.(The Obamacare insurance subsidies are paid as refundable tax credits and the Medicaid portion is not annually appropriated, meaning that Congress can't pull funding.)

And yes I love Rush.
I'm in agreement with you about antidepressant drugs; however, if a person is truly psychotic, what is the remedy?
What about pain medication like oxycontin? You're boyfriend Rush has parties with bowls of them on various tables in his house.
