Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

If Obama thinks he made some kind of "deal" with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable totalitarian mullahs in the world, he's even dumber than Stewart.

Since the Obama team doesn't seem to care how long this shutdown continues as long as they win, someone should tell them the American people sure do and, while Obama may be cocky and arrogant now, he'll be feeling the heat sooner than later because this is happening under his watch.

He tends to forget the buck doesn't stop with Republicans. It stops with him.

Gallup poll today shows Obama's approval at 41%.

He better have an "attitude adjustment" pronto.

Speaker Boehner came out today and said “This isn’t some damn game.” Then, why doesn't he stop playing games and bring the bill to the floor where Democrats and Republicans are waiting to pass a clean CR?

Enough is enough Boehner. Stop playing games!!!

Fox News Poll Suggests That GOP May Not Be Completely Winning Shutdown Fight

It was sort of lost in a swirl of similar rotten news for the Obama administration, but the last Fox News poll, represented an Obama nadir. At the close of the Syria escapade, Barack Obama's approval rating had crashed to 40 percent—by a 14-point margin, voters viewed his job performance negatively.

The new Fox News poll is another story. There's an obvious lede, with fantastic news for Republicans.

Several provisions of the health care law have already been delayed. Setting aside how you feel about the law, do you think implementation of it should be delayed for a year until more details are ironed out, or not?

Yes - 57%
No - 39%

Hey, that's the GOP's current message, complete with the "since Obama has already delayed part of it" preamble.

But the rest of the poll shines for the Democrats. Obama's approval has ticked up to 45 percent, with 49 percent disapproval, a 10-point shrinking of the negative margin. Congress's approval number has sunk to its lowest level since the failure of the "supercommittee"—dow n from 17–75 to 13–81, minus 58 to minus 68.

There's more:

- A bounce in Obama's approval rating on health care, from 38–58 to 45–51.(This is the highest Obama number since before the 2012 election.)

- A tumble in the GOP's favorable rating to 35–59, with 59 percent unfavorable marking the highest level in the history of the poll.(The Democrats' numbers mirror Obama's.)

- John Boehner overtaking Harry Reid as the least popular congressional leader. Their last ratings, respectively:-18,-21. The new ratings:-22,-13.

- A 9-point drop in the percentage of people wanting full repeal of Obamacare, down on 30 from 39.

- A 53–41 margin in favor of keeping the law, versus repealing it.

Honestly, the second-best number for Republicans is a 42–32 margin on the question of whom to blame for the shutdown. I see some proof, here, of the theory that a tightly messaged "we just want to delay the law" theme can work. But week one of the shutdown has cut hard against the GOP, in this poll.

National Cancer Institute Funds Tea Party Witch Hunt
What was the National Cancer Institute (NCI) thinking when it decided to spend $678,952 to fund a notorious political activist to conduct a "scientific" research study designed to prove that the Tea Party was an invention of Big Tobacco and the Koch brothers, rather than a grassroots movement of disenfranchised Americans fed up with both the Republican and Democratic parties?

One moment you cry "Senate Democrats Won't Fund Programs for Kids with Cancer" and the next you cry "programs for kids with cancer are anti-Tea Party". You are a confused little cretin.

"Democrats look even sillier when they refuse to consider changes to Obamacare while the White House continues to roll out unilateral changes to the law.

Those include delaying the employer mandate, waiving proof of individual eligibility for exchange subsidies and extending the deadline for small-business exchange applications.

Business Insider notes the administration announced that last change 'right in the middle of Obama’s fiery speech' insisting he would not change the law one iota."

NOPE. It wasn't the Democrats. It was Congress that called for the shutdown of all non-essential operations. You wanted it. You got it. Stoop passing the buck.

G.O.P. Elders See Liabilities in Shutdown
The hard-line stance of Republican House members on the government shutdown is generating increasing anger among senior Republican officials, who say the small bloc of conservatives is undermining the party and helping President Obama just as the American people appeared to be losing confidence in him.
Of course their anger is increasing. They aren't conservatives and enjoy pissing away our tax money nearly as much as democrats.

Tea Party Mantra: "Spending cuts for non-essential needs is a key to making America a better place to live." You own it. Embrace it.
Sounds like you are trying to run away from your own party.

Do you not find it a little curious the country can not keep war memorials open but have plenty of money to try to get nobama care started up? Where in the hell is the money coming from, liberal loons are irked that nobamakare is unfunded. But still our government can come up with the monies to sell nobamakare.
