Barack Obama, our next President

You are wrong, therefore you must be a Liberal.

Some Conservatives were pro-war, others did not like the idea, but no Conservative went out of their way to destroy Bush as you idiots did.

That my brothers is the great difference!

You guys, living in glass houses, throw the first stones.

Now your hypocrisy is plainly seen!

Conservatives have minds and different opinions we respect. You Liberals are conditioned by MSNBC to think alike or else out of the club!

Letter to Barack The One Obama

Dear Mr. President,

It didn’t seem possible, but you shocked me. After lowering my expectations for you, from very high five years ago to bottom-of-the-barrel now, I figured you could never again disappoint me.

But you did it. And if your aim was to further diminish respect for the office you hold, mission accomplished.

The content of Monday’s hyperpartisan speech was par for your hyperpartisan presidency, but the timing marked a new low. Let me be clear: Have you neither decency nor shame?

You knew when you took the stage to denounce Republicans that a gunman had opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard, but you didn’t know the full extent of the carnage because nobody did. That’s why you should have stayed silent.

Yet, in remarks hastily put at the top of your speech, you noted that the incident was “unfolding” and said,“We still don’t know all the facts, but we do know that several people have been shot, and some have been killed.”

Later, we learned that 12 innocents already lay dead, not just “several.” How could you be so cavalier, especially with incidents like Fort Hood, Benghazi and the Boston Marathon bombing previously happening on your watch? For all you knew, this one, too, was the work of an Islamic terrorist.

Your ritualistic tough-guy mode didn’t cut it.

You sounded like you were going through a checklist when you promised that “we will do everything in our power to make sure whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.”

Somewhere, Bashar al-Assad and the Benghazi killers must have had a laugh. They are living proof that your promises of accountability are as good as a $3 bill.

From there, you were off to your appointed purpose, which was to demonize those who disagree with you on the budget and ObamaCare.

Or, as you put it for the rainbow group of human props standing behind you:“The problem is, at the moment, Republicans in Congress don’t seem to be focused on how to grow the economy and build the middle class. I say ‘at the moment’ because I’m still hoping that a light bulb goes off here.”

The White House transcript helpfully includes the word (“Laughter”) to show your props appreciated your sense of humor.

Moments like this will be invoked when history records why your face is on a $3 bill.

Dear Mr. President:

So you, the commander-in-chief, were making a joke as a deadly attack was taking place at a nearby military base. It’s hard to imagine a more tasteless moment in presidential history.

Fortunately, not many people heard your obscenity, because the cable networks had bailed to cover the slaughter.

Yet you plodded on and soon found your patronizing groove, allowing that some Republicans are “decent folks.” Of course, to earn that honor, they have to “step up,” meaning agree with you.

The rest was predictable— how you’re focused on the jobs crunch, the deficit, blah blah blah.

Naturally, you reminded us that you won the election. Thanks for clearing that up.

The speech, then, was a routine summary of your worldview—Obama good, everybody else bad, except those who agree with Obama.

It’s the timing that I can’t get over.

The fact that you went ahead before police had released the full number of dead or wounded is breathtaking.

Heroic law-enforcement agents still were plucking terrified survivors off rooftops with helicopters and hunting for what they thought was an accomplice.

The unknowns — including who did it, why and whether the shooting was a terrorist act — had so unnerved the Capitol that Congress was in lockdown most of the day.

Yet news reports say there was not even a discussion in your office about whether to postpone the speech.

Again, shades of Benghazi:

* Your disappearance during the attack on Sept. 11th of last year still has not been explained.

* We know you had no contact with your Defense Secretary after about 6 p.m., and presumably went to sleep even as four Americans were being killed in the Libyan deathtrap.

* The next day, you spoke in the Rose Garden as your aides spread the lie that the attack was the spontaneous outgrowth of a demonstration against an anti-Muslim video.

* You concluded your remarks by vowing that “justice will be done,” then hopped on Air Force One FOR A CAMPAIGN TRIP TO LAS VEGAS.

America is still waiting for justice, Mr. President. But while we wait, I humbly offer a suggestion.

Go away. Just Go Away.

If that is asking too much, then please, please be quiet!

For America and for decency.

So how do you feel about Russia and ex-KGB, Putin, who wants nothing more than to restore the old Russian Communist regime and include controlling the Middle East (and its oil) to take our place as the world leader? Thanks to the ineptness and naivety of our current leadership?
Putin wants increased Russian power in an Obama-style dictatorship, but probably not a return to full-blown Communism.

The mother of the man apparently responsible for killing 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard said that her "heart is broken" in an apology released Wednesday.
Cathleen Alexis, speaking from her home in Brooklyn, New York, lamented that she could not explain her son's horrific actions.
"I don't know why he did what what he did, and I'll never be able to ask him why," she said. "Aaron is now in a place where he can no longer do harm to anyone, and for that I am glad. To the families of the victims, I am so, so very sorry that this has happened."
How refreshing. Parents of killer Democrats usually just blame the police for using excessive force.

<quoted text>They do not tag Bush. They show the upswing in spending starting in 1980 that really never leveled off except briefly under Clinton. Come on JG at least don't deny the facts. I know you are a rightwinger but there must be some shred of decency buried somewhere deep inside, maybe it comes out on Sundays for a brief moment when you hold the church door open for some old lady before you all try and kill each other in the parking lot trying to leave afterwards but I digress...
Your chart charges the 2009 deficit to Bush, when the majority of the deficit was unnecessary and useless Porkulus spending. This makes it worthless.

How about a chart in dollars instead of percent of GDP?

Roaring!!! I was invited to dinner with my best friends 83 year old father who asked me if I was one "of those Obama people"!!
I said yes. However, I was heartened to learn that after having been a life long republican, he changed to Independent because of Bush. There's hope in the world!

Federal debt began the 20th century at less than 10 percent of GDP. It jerked above 30 percent as a result of World War I and then declined in the 1920s to 16.3 percent by 1929. Federal debt started to increase after the Crash of 1929, and rose above 40 percent in the depths of the Great Depression.

Federal debt exploded during World War II to over 120 percent of GDP, and then began a decline that bottomed out at 32 percent of GDP in 1974. Federal debt almost doubled in the 1980s, reaching 60 percent of GDP in 1990 and peaking at 66 percent of GDP in 1996, before declining to 56 percent in 2001. Federal debt started increasing again in the 2000s, reaching 70 percent of GDP in 2008. Then it exploded in the aftermath of the Crash of 2008, reaching 102 percent of GDP in 2011.

Federal debt has breached 100 percent of GDP twice since 1900: during World War II and in the aftermath of the Crash of 2008.

So it appears that about half of Florida's 3.5 million uninsured will be able to get a silver plan through the Florida exchange for about $100 per month according to figures submitted by Florida Blue and Cigna.
Those who just say fk it will pay a $95 penalty in year one and increasingly more each year.
What about those healthy young folk that didn't need insurance at all? Their taxes will be going up.
