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

In case anyone is wondering why the United States has exactly zero credibility in the world today, here is an example of a sequence of events that cause every country in the world to think the United States if fullofshit:

The Secretary of State of the United States tells the president of Russia there are no Al Qaeda soldiers in Syria.

The president of Russia addresses the population of the world and calls the Secretary of State of the United States a liar, using that exact word.

Then, this headline appears:
"Al-Qaida spokesman claims rival rebel group in Syria 'stealing' group's battlefield successes"

Obama is the laughing stock of the world. Thus, the United States is the laughing stock of the world. Nothing Obama says is believed by anyone in the world. Nothing anyone in this administration says is believed by anyone in the world.
Zimbabwe has more credibility in the world than the United States. Any country you can name has more credibility in the world than the United States.
All of you dupes that made this happen, give yourself an applause. You have accomplished something that has never happened before in the history of civilization. You have reduced the credibility of the leading nation in the world from top to the very bottom in just one 4-year term of a president. This has never happened in the history of civilization before you Democrats made it happen here.

Unable To Stop Shutdown, Obama Pins Blame On GOP

President Obama says he's tired of the seemingly never-ending rounds of budget crises.

"When it comes to Congress paying its bills ... we cannot be a country that is lurching every two months or three months from crisis to crisis to crisis," Obama Monday with NPR's Steve Inskeep.

Yet that is precisely the situation the president finds himself in.The president makes his pitch for Obamacare

The enrollment delay is the latest in a series affecting Obamacare's implementation. In April, the administration decided to narrow the scope of the SHOP exchanges. In 2014, businesses that turn to the exchanges will be limited to choosing a single plan to cover all their employees. It'll be another year before they can put employees on different plans.

Then in July, the administration pushed back the employer mandate. Previously, companies with 50-plus full-timers had to start providing coverage in 2014 or face penalties. Now they have until 2015. To top of page http://money.cnn.com/2013/09/26/smallbusiness ...

GOP ONLY ASK THAT ONE YEAR DELAY AND NOT TO SHUT
DOWN GOV.TO BE FAIR TO EVERYONE!Then in July, the OBAMA administration pushed back the employer mandate. Previously, companies with 50-plus full-timers had to start providing coverage in 2014 or face penalties. Now they have until 2015.HOWEVER MOST OF THE POOR PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO GET IT NOW!OBAMA SAYS IF HOUSE OR THE SEN. VOTE TO DELAY HIS HEALTH CARE HE WILL VETO IT?WAKE THE HELL UP USA!IT IS THE DEM AND

It's not really worth discussing beyond the E-verify angle and that states have pumped up the fees for the photo ID card itself as well as pertinent documentation, certified birth certificates, marriage licenses etc etc.

Over 1 trillion lost in revenues. Hundreds of billions in sending to help those caught up in the mess.
If we would only spent what was coming in, we would be in a deep depression.
You are truly dumber than sh*t.
Yes, we still blame the Democrats for the economic collapse caused by the failure of their Marxist CRA program.
This has been proven to you many times. Feel free to go back and read the proof, dumbass.
The Democrats caused the economic collapse.
The Democrats orchestrated the collapse for political purposes.
Since, the Democrats have doubled the debt, and the Democrats' version of government has to borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every year jsut for the day-to-day existence of the federal government, and they have absolutely no plan to rectify this.
An idiot can tell you this government will collapse.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Why would a person get a photo ID if they survive just fine without it.

People who obviously don't drive need to gather the required documents - sometimes sending for these, find transport - sometimes over 50 miles round trip or more, to get this photo ID - all to vote.

This is a hurdle.

A hurdle Flack thinks will not stop some people from voting.

Got to chuckle when it comes to the distance hardships for obtaining a photo ID for legal Latinos. Just a few years ago many of them hiked several hundred to thousands of miles to get here and now 5 to 10 miles is a hardship!

Maybe if we put up a half-azzed fences around the DMVs it would give them some incentive.

Perhaps with the Democrats' effect on the dollar, it takes more devalued dollars to accomplish the same thing than before the Democrats had control of the value of the dollar. When the Fed is audited and it is discovered that Ben Bernanke is counterfeiting money wholesale with nothing to back it up, you'll need a wheelbarrow to carry the amount of dollar bills required to buy a loaf of bread.

Obama took to his Twitter account to comment on the failure to fund the government. "They actually did it," he wrote. "A group of Republicans in the House just forced a government shutdown over Obamacare instead of passing a real budget."

The Senate voted twice Monday to reject House efforts to delay the individual mandate, repeal a 2.3% tax on medical devices enacted to help pay for the law, and a proposal to eliminate a proposed subsidy to members of Congress, their staffs, and members of the Obama administration to buy insurance in the new system.

Obama reiterated that he would not sign any bill that seeks to dismantle the law. "One faction of one party in one house of Congress in one branch of government doesn't get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election," Obama said at the White House.http://www.freep.com/art icle/20131001/NEWS15/310010042 /Government-shutdown-Obamacare -Affordable-Care-Act

If you start blaming debt on Democrats since they took the House in 2007, shouldn't you be blaming Republicans since 2011?

And really, your CRA excuse has been debunked a gazillion times.

The DMV's machine could process and print your ID photo license in less than 2 minutes. Instead, you wait 10 to 20 minutes while they run your name through the national crime base.

Will the White House Chefs be Sent Home?

by Keith Koffler on October 1, 2013, 7:37 am

The government shutdown that starts today results in temporary pink slips to “nonessential” government workers, begging the obvious question: Are the White House chefs essential?

The Obamas are known to eat quite well, at least in public, where they can be seen frequenting trendy spots around Washington and landing in over-priced restaurants aimed at vacationers when they’re in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard. At home in the White House, a team of chefs plans menus for the Obamas and prepares an endless series of tasty meals.

But the government shutdown presents the terrifying prospect that the Obamas may have to defrost a package of Lean Cuisine or open a can of meat ravioli.

The Obamas have two de facto chief chefs: Cristeta Comerford is a leftover from the Bush years who is formally the White House Executive Chef and whom the Obamas decided not to get rid of; and Sam Kass, who was imported from Chicago by the Obamas and whose title is Executive Director of Let’s Move! and Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy.

Kass came in as Comerford’s “assistant,” but with his current involvement in the first lady’s food projects, it’s not known how often he still whips up a meal. Nevertheless, it’s not clear if the Senior Policy advisor for Nutrition Policy is essential. But Kass is also a frequent golf partner of the president’s, which may increase his “essentialness.”

Also present on the grounds is an Executive Pastry Chef, who is exclusively in charge of dessert, and perhaps a lobster pot pie or two.

Thing is, we should expect BETTER from leadership, rather than Worse like that is now, and than what is already rampant!
