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

No. Risk has nothing to do with it. All government bureaucrats are paid like that. Nothing but parasitic leeches.

It was Republicans who compromised and raised taxes on the wealthy in exchange for spending cuts. Did the spending cuts materialize?

Republicans have been asking for negotiations and compromise. It is Obama and Democrats who refuse to negotiate.

Ramrodding a law with many problems by bullying is not governing.

So what the Sam Hill are you talking about?
Who cares? All Washington politicians are crooks. The less governing done the better.

Didn't cost nearly as much as the lowering of our credit rating cost us as a result of Teabaggers shenanigans.

You can't compromise with radical yahoos and it is very apparent that teabaggers fit that category.
Remember, it was compromising with Teabaggers that lost us our AAA credit rating and caused the sequester. They've done enough damage.
Obama manipulated the sequester by coming up with the idea and hoping it would backfire on Republicans. Even with all the doom and gloom and demonizing speeches, it didn't.

Same as now. Obama is manipulating ObamaCare and the shutdown by refusing to negotiate in a political power game to blame Republicans who only expect the president to lead under a two-party system.

It's all about him looking weak with Syria, saving face and power grabbing games.

When does he start thinking about the country? And the majority who don't want Obamacare any more than they do a shutdown?

"I, USAsince1680, hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."

IMO, anyone who refuses to take this oath doesn't deserve to live in the United States of America and cannot be trusted to have our best interest at heart. Since you have refused, I would say it is time for YOU to leave our shores.

Too late for that now. Big government is here and the socialist mentality stronghold will stop at nothing to destroy any attempt to stunt its growth.

ObamaCare is the only thing that can destroy this mentality without anyone's help. If common sense is restored in 2014 and 2016, maybe we can still pick up the pieces then.

<quoted text>Exactly a year ago on the evening of August 5, 2011, the world learned that S&P stripped the U.S. of its sterling AAA sovereign credit rating.
Some experts believed that this was the beginning of the end. The fear was that U.S. Treasury rates would surge, making the financing costs of the government's liabilities unbearable. Eventually, stocks and the economy would collapse.
Well, none of that happened. Instead, borrowing costs fell to all-time lows and stocks have since rallied to near all-time highs. The S&P 500 is up 16 percent since the downgrade.
But should anyone really be surprised? After Japan and Canada lost their AAA ratings, their stock markets also saw double-digit gains. On average, when a country loses their AAA ratings, their borrowing costs fall too.

I agree. Las Vegas was the worst, never saw a cop get disciplined, no matter what. But I know they have a tough job. You should realize they are all that keeps the savages and mau mau's at bay.

You really are an idiot aren't you? People on Medicaid are not subject to the tax and those who choose not to obtain insurance because it would eat up more than 8% of their income also are not subject to the tax. Just pay your tax and stop worrying about everyone else. It will work out just fine if we can keep the hands of greedy republican's out of the till.
Kill yourself before you get stuck on gubbymint insurance! Problem solved.

It's easy to deny when Harry Reid is holding up everything that will open the government again, dumbass.
Really? There are now more than 17 Republicans who now say they are ready to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached. That give the House the votes it needs to pass the clean funding bill presented by the Senate IF only Boehner would present the bill to a vote.
