Barack Obama, our next President

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.)

DROP THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS ISSUE PURSUIT FIRST.
STOP THE FIGHTING AT THE SAME TIME.
GET PEOPLE BACK TO THEIR USUAL AND ORDINARY LIVES AND ACTIVITIES.
THEN after that, THERE ARE LOTS OF TIME TO TALK AND FIGURE OUT CHEMICAL WEAPONS, and for talks of what the Syrian people want in regard to see what rebels have to say.
Otherwise, by using chemical weapons issue, it will never have an end and will have another Iraq bad crisis drama--NOBODY CAN PROVE ASSAD USED SARIN GAS ON 8/21, FROM rockets or anything, as Assad said He did not use sarin gas. Rebels had sarin gas, said by CIA that any trouble makers might have done it or not, as this argument will lead to another Iraq terrified cycle again--why would US bomb Syria because of uncertainty of, to pursuit chemical weapons again (this time US military to Syria will suffer much worse as using even ground troops might even lose too many that had to be out)? If to have a long-term unrest violences upon a big toll of US, that will be just like another Iraq by insisting of WMD like Bush, which was not true?

They are not the chemical weapons which cause disaster and destruction to the Syrian people, but the infighting form Muslim rebels, and the threat of US strike .

These civil violences have destroyed the everyday life of the Syrian people, from schools, to work places, to homes, that people feel unsafe that many have to flee because of all the violences doing on both sides.

As It is not possible to have Syria regime to give up, it is required that rebels must stop then, so that people can return to homes and usual living.

The only thing necessary is that rebels give up fighting, so that Syrian people can come back to ordinary activities.

Obama is wrong by keeping on talking on chemical weapons, for that will destroy more lives and cause large unstable activities of the region, where lots of more people can never return to their ordinary activities again.

It is never about chemical weapons issue, because by far that does not affect most people.

Instead of having Syrian people come back to their usual lives, Obama's vicious way of siding with rebels to encourage them fighting and inflaming on chemical weapons issue has resulted the destruction of daily routine activities of the Syrian people.

When that is done, go from there, and talk chemical weapons later, as people get back to their lives in order first.

The stand to have Syrian people to do ordinary lives and activities has not anything to do with chemical weapons. Yet, using chemical weapons indulging has worsened the Syrians to get back to their way of life because Syrians are not killed by sarin gas at all, by far, but will be killed BY US strike by doing chemical weapons issue.

So, they have to give up the chemical weapons issue and Rebels fighting first, as that is the only way of Syrian people can go back home, go to schools, and go back to work as they need those first.
Since Syrian people are not afraid of sarin gas, what is the point of Obama by talking about sarin gas to strike to kill them?

CONCLUSION IS the NO STRIKE AND NO HIT OF SYRIA ,as whatever WILL BE, if it is BASED on CHEMICAL Weapons issue, when Syria abandons agreement on chemical weapons proposal, at the same time with evidence of sarin gas usage or not by any one.

THROW AWAY WHAT OBAMA SAYS.
Otherwise, by using chemical weapons issue, it will never have an end and will have another Iraq bad crisis drama.

Actually the debt ceiling should never be raised, gone over, and should be lowered as the debt goes down. Spending more money by borrowing it is stupid.

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.

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.
