Barack Obama, our next President

"at this point, we do know that Obama and others in the administration were quick to cite the anti-Muslim video as the underlying cause for the attack in Benghazi that killed four U.S. diplomats, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. And they were slow to acknowledge it was a premeditated terrorist attack, and they downplayed reports that it might have been"

"◾There were no protesters at the Benghazi consulate prior to the attack, even though Obama and others repeatedly said the attackers joined an angry mob that had formed in opposition to the anti-Muslim film that had triggered protests in Egypt and elsewhere. The State Department disclosed this fact Oct. 9 — nearly a month after the attack."

"&#9726;Libya President Mohamed Magariaf insisted on Sept. 16 — five days after the attack — that it was a planned terrorist attack, but administration officials continued for days later to say there was no evidence of a planned attack."

As usual Carol your lies don't even stand up to even cursory examination. Te President met with Republicans at their annual retreat in Baltimore in 2009. He's had several meetings with both Senate and House Republicans. Just this spring he hosted a dinner for a dozen Republican senators at the Jefferson Hotel (and paid the tab out of his own pocket) and on the following day had lunch with Rep. Paul Ryan. But just how do you reach across to a group whose philosophy is to oppose, obstruct and block everything the President proposes even if it was their idea in the first place.
Working across the aisle hasn't worked out to well for Republicans. As senators Richard Lugar and Barack Obama sponsored legislation, the "Lugar-Obama proliferation and threat reduction initiative," which President Bush signed into law on January 11, 2007. Lugar's willingness to engage in bipartisan cooperation earned him a challenge from Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock who won the primary but lost the general election adding another Democratic senator. Lindsay Graham is another Republican who has been working with a bipartisan group on senators on immigration reform and as a result is being challenged by Tea Party candidates. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, another GOP senator who has shown a willingness to compromise with Democrats is being challenged on those grounds by Lynn Cheney.
But go ahead Carol just keep living in your delusional little world.
He and several Democrats met with several Republicans for the infamous "discussion" about Obamacare before it was passed to put on a show by ignoring every suggestion or comment they made.

He has been AWOL ever since meeting with just about anyone besides the four or five in his inner circle on a routine basis or the head of the IRS numerous times right before the tea party targeting and the SEIU president, Andy Stern, many, many times during his early presidency.

The dinner was another political gesture after he found himself in a pickle when his approval ratings began to drop. Another show.

You are kidding yourself if you think this president has been actively involved in reaching out to the other side or even his own party. He delegates every major decision to someone else and reads his teleprompter in between golf games.

Chris Matthews got it right. He said the president likes the IDEA of being the president but doesn't really like BEING the president.

Empty suit never fit anyone better than this president.

Where was he on the night of Benghazi? Why did he not stay in constant contact with Panetta? Why did he make only one phone call that night to Hillary Clinton? Why did he leave for a fundraiser the very next day? Why did he continue a lie about a video long after Clinton and Panetta admitted it was a terrorist attack?

These are questions no one should have to ask about any president.

A glitch hidden in one of Obamacare’s 10,000 pages of rules could increase some families’ health insurance costs by thousands of dollars and leave children uncovered.
To qualify as “affordable” under the federal health care law, employer-provided health insurance must cost no more than 9.5 percent of the employee’s salary. Otherwise, the individual is eligible to receive subsidies for the purchase of health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges instead.
But this measure applies only to individual employees, not families. The result will be a drastic cost increase in cases where affordable employer-provided insurance doesn’t cover the whole family.

The sanctions called for countries to reduce their imports of Iranian oil. When countries met that goal, they were given a exemption.
So an exemption is a sign that those counties you listed did their part.
You people are dumber than sh*t.

Ayn Rand Disciple Says CEOs Deserve All the Credit – Henry Blodget Disagrees
By Henry Blodget | Daily Ticker – 23 hours ago

A Forbes contributor, Harry Binswanger, who is a disciple of the writer Ayn Rand, argued this week that people who make $1+ million a year are so valuable to society that they shouldn't pay any taxes.

Far from these million-dollar earners paying more taxes, Binswanger argued, the rest of America should "give back" to the 1% by thanking them for their service to the country and rewarding them by exempting them from taxation.

This argument is the logical extension of an argument that many American entrepreneurs and investors make, which is that they are the country's "job creators" and therefore deserve almost all of the country's income and wealth. These "job creators," this argument goes, should pay their employees as little as possible and keep every penny of profit for themselves. After all, they deserve it: They're the ones who "create" the jobs that sustain the country.

Related: The 99% Owe "A Debt of Gratitude" to the 1%: Harry Binswanger

It's no surprise why this argument is popular among entrepreneurs and investors: Instead of making them feel selfish about taking such a big share of the country's wealth for themselves, it actually makes them feel magnanimous. If they weren't "creating all those jobs," then most Americans would have nothing to do!....

Obama’s General Assembly Address
His address didn’t surprise. It was beginning-to-end demagogic boilerplate. It featured imperial mumbo jumbo. He turned truth on its head like he always does.

A year ago he claimed intervening in Libya was to “cope with violent conflict, care for the wounded, and craft a vision for the future in which the rights of all Libyans would be respected.”

“And after the revolution,(he) supported the birth of a new democracy, as Libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship.”

Fact check

Libya was Africa’s most developed country. Most Libyans supported Gaddafi. They did so for good reasons. He provided free healthcare, education and much more.

His Libya no longer exists. Obama turned it into a charnel house. Tens of thousands were slaughtered. Multiples more were injured. Many more were displaced.

Mostly civilians were harmed. NATO willfully targeted them. At issue was replacing another independent government with a puppet one.

Violence persists daily. So do human need, suffering and misery.

Libya’s a failed state. Divergent factions run things. No legitimate government exists. For sure no democracy. Obama lied claiming otherwise.

He bears full responsibility for what happened. He moved on. He’s waging war on Syria. He wants another imperial trophy. He’ll stop at nothing to get it. Rogue states operate this way.

“(W)e come together to reaffirm the founding vision of this institution,” said Obama.“For most of recorded history,(the) idea that nations and peoples could come together in peace to solve their disputes and advance a common prosperity seemed unimaginable.”

It still does. America bears full responsibility. Obama shares considerable guilt.

If President Obama was that bad, why do you need to lie & use misinformation?

Instead of stating truths, you f*cking bozos run around blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession & manufacturing bogus crap like you Benghazi fit from yesterday.

And thankfully someone had just made a video about Mohammed which no one even knew about until it was blamed for the attack and the person responsible arrested.

Wonder if someone making a video about Jesus that Christians didn't like that made them attack a consulate and kill people would have been arrested?

Probably not. The liberal media would have shown it on PBS a few times and started a media frenzy demonizing Christians. That's what would have happened.

But, yes, thankfully Obama had that video so he could run off to Los Vegas the next day with a clear conscience.

Sen. Durbin:'Good News' That Motel Housekeeper Is So Poor She Qualifies for Medicaid Under Obamacare

Questioning Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Dick Dubin, an Illinois Democrat, explained why he's proud to have voted for Obamacare.

He told the story of a chambermaid named Judy who works "at a motel that I often go to," and who will benefit from Obamacare because she is so poor: "The good news for Judy is that her income is so low that she now qualifies for Medicaid for the first time in her life," Durbin said.

Pig, pig, pig, you self-important, ignorant, fat sl*t. You're made a mockery of by every poster on here who's got an IQ over 60 You're on here all day, every day, then all night -- past midnight. Even your husband can't stand to be around your incessant self-referencing blather and stench, so he's likely still out, or drugged to sleep as you type righty loon sh!t into the early hours.
Like some dumb beast, You lick the hind end of your betters (the rich, whom you believe pick up your tab), and disdain your own class -- the poor -- believing (like the pathetic ninny you are) that they brought it on themselves, refuse to work, are druggies, blah, blah blah. And all the while, you resource sucking leech, you try lamely to demean and defame THE PRESIDENT WHO HAS MANAGED TO ACCOMPLISH MUCH AGAINST THE CRUSHING ODDS OF A BUNCH PARISITIC "CONSERVATIVE" THUGS WHO'S ONLY MISSION IS TO SEE THAT HE FAILS, AS THEY CONTINUE TO DRAIN THE PUBLIC TRUST COMPLETELY AND REMORSELESSLY, WHILE REWARDING THE WAR PROFITEERS TO THE BITTER END.
You are the fat, ignorant drama queen supreme, and will one day bring the violence you claim to abhor down upon your ugly, crap-filled head, probably by opening your fat mouth to the wrong person, IF you ever get out, that is. Maybe one will crawl through that cheap trailer window one night, and give you what you so richly deserve. You and your ilk are a foul stain on this country (you've made us a laughing stock world-wide -- the "proud American," who doesn't have a pottopissin but believe they'll BRING DOWN THE PRESIDENT. And it look like finally something has gotten through to your miserable traitorous self, since you're attempting to lamely respond to each and every of my posts.
Yes, carol, you are a filthy old diabet ictraiter and a sponge on resources. All you worry about is where YOUR medical payments (and likely 20 difference meds) will come from. The man who sits outside the grocery with his dog is a vet with PTSD; he has broken teeth and a torn coat and shoes with the soles worn thin. He likely lives in a tent in the dunes somewhere with his dog, while your self-satisfied stupid azz sits all day and tries to demean the president from the safety of your filthy trailer. You're an embarrassment to this thread, but believe you are somehow magically capable of SARCASM. You, carol, are hardly capable of stringing together 2 sentences without several HILARIOUS grammar honkers, EX-TEACHER (hahahaha). You're a joke with no punch line, carol. Maybe the punchline will be your death, where you get to find out that your religion is a loadofsh!t, right before the lights go out for good.
A 16 yr. old welfare receiptient, who should pay attention in class, rather than be typing jibberish on his hand-held?
