Barack Obama, our next President

What shut down?
I don't recall seeing any government shut down.
I do recall 87 percent of the government being unaffected, though.

Show me the shut down.

Hey dude, Conservative Wisconsing governor has a $100 million surplus for the first time in Wisconsing AND in the middle of Obama's five year recession as his promised $4.00 gas.
How do you explain that?
We, Tea Party put him there and now Wisconsing will pay $100 milling less in taxes and more in their pockets to take care of their loved ones!
How do you explain?
Can you?
Ohio expects a surplus after we, the Tea Party put a Conservative in charge and kicked the idiot Democrat Liberal that was before and created a deficit.
2013-15 Budget Overview: How Wisconsin Goes From a Solid Surplus to a Sizeable Deficit

Wisconsin is expected to begin the 2013-15 budget period with a solid General Fund surplus, estimated to be about $420 million, but the Governor’s budget proposals would leave the state with a potential deficit of more than $600 million in the following biennium. This overview of the budget bill examines how the current surplus and anticipated revenue growth would be used for tax cuts and spending, and why the Governor’s recommendations would put lawmakers in a substantial hole when they start the 2015-17 budget process.

....The combination of tax cuts and cost shifts means that the state’s spending will likely outstrip revenues in future years. This year, the state had a structural balance of $146 million in the General Fund, not counting the carryover from the previous year. However, because the budget would use a one-time balance for a permanent tax cut and ongoing spending increases, GPR expenditures would surpass new revenue by $380 million over the next two fiscal years. Lawmakers would start the 2015-17 biennium with a budget hole or “structural imbalance” of more than $600 million.

Typical Republican...do away with tax deductions for everyone but don't you dare tax everyone equally. It's time to end preferential treatment.
Don't forget that it was your beloved Ronald Reagan who set tax rates on capital gains at the same level as the rates on ordinary income.
Volatility and bubbles in the stock market is all about optimism and pessimism about the future. It is not related to capital gains taxes. The Stock Market will do just fine and people will still make money.
Besides, I can't think of one logical argument that supports why private equity partners are taxed at capital-gains rates, while other high-income individuals pay tax rates for ordinary income. It's ridiculous.
to the contrary, stock prices are all about return on investment...increase taxes on dividends and capital gains and stocks will be worth less in order to generate the same net return....

While Obama runs his victory lap around the White House, his pet project, the Affordable Healthcare Act, is still an Epic FAIL.

According to Politico.com , the Obamacare enrollment website remains inaccessible despite two weeks of Herculean efforts to repair the faulty website infrastructure.

Cruz Redefines Chutzpah

Ted Cruz keeps deluding himself about next year’s election:

The single-most damaging thing that has happened to Republicans for 2014 is all of the Senate Republicans coming out, attacking the House Republicans, attacking those pushing the effort to defund Obamacare and lining themselves up opposite of the American people.

It’s bit rich for the politician who has been agitating against the “surrender caucus” to complain about the criticisms of others, but the real flaw here is that Cruz’s claim simply isn’t true. When a majority of Americans now says that it is a “bad thing” for Republicans to control the House on account of the shutdown, the party’s political woes can hardly be traced to Senate Republicans because they failed to imitate their House colleagues. Winning control of the Senate next year was always going to be difficult for Republicans, and Cruz and his allies have made that result significantly less likely because they have made Republican control of any part of the government appear much less desirable. Having inflicted a huge political loss on his party by picking a pointless fight, Cruz blames the people most responsible for extricating the party from the mess he helped create.

As for “lining themselves up opposite of the American people,” what does Cruz think that he and his allies have been doing for the last month if not that? The fact that he still seems to think that the public is on his side in all of this may be an even bigger indictment of his poor judgment than the earlier blundering. Cruz continues to have many fans in spite of all this, but they should ask themselves if they really want a leader who never takes responsibility for his failures and issues one self-serving denial after another when confronted with the cost of his mistakes.

Because of the Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapsing the economy.
Now, we have a jobless recovery. Additionally, Obama's "recovery" is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs. A part time job is poverty. A full time job is a living wage. Obama's "recovery" is putting five people into poverty for every one person it allows a living wage.
The only people benefitting from Obama's "recovery" are the people on Wall Street, moron.
We don't need any jobs. Don't you remember your claim that ANYONE who wants a job can find one. All they have to do is look.
Are you now admitting that you deliberately lied to make a point? Are you now admitting that people with part time jobs need help supporting their families?

Must be just a coincidence the abuses going on in the NSA and the Justice Department are headline news since the Obama administration expanded the Patriot Act to spy on everyone...
This administration is so far in over its head, it doesn't even know how far up it is to break water.
In other words, they're drowning - on every front.
It wasn't Snowden who told the French, Germans and Britains this administration was spying on them. They just got caught.
Wonder when we're going to start hearing excuses and lies about this.
Of course, if the liberal media pretends they're legitimate journalists, this story won't see the light of day.
Bradley aka Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden didn't come along during BushCo__wikileaks didn't come along until 2006 and really didn't harm BushCo with it's 2008 Afghanistan expose' because Americans were focused on the election. At that point America was just over Bush, Cheney and the others who had brought the nations to it's knees.

The US spy agencies have overthrown Governments Carol, Iran, Guatemala and more beginning in the 50's with the likes of Allen Dulles while J. Edgar Hoover rode heard over American Citizens.

You can't be ignorant enough to believe that your repetitious lies influence anyone right or left__Your ignorance isn't even funny anymore but just sad.

And that explains how Obama skillfully maneuvered the Russians, Syrians, and Iranians into the position where the United States has to help secure a stable Assad government in order for the chemical weapons agreement to be executed.
Meanwhile, the US continues to train Al Qaeda terrorists on a US military base in Jordan to send them to Syria to destabilize the Assad government.
Obama skillfully maneuvered himself into a position where he has to fight with himself.

You are aware that websites are programmed, right? like Iphones.
I don't know which is worse? Clinton's Y2K internet scam of history of glitches, planes falling out of the sky, the world ending or the Obamakkkare website blaming iphones???

The concept behind the obamacare website is to cache websites on different Geographcal locations (states) to provide better /fast access and reduce load on core servers. This is not iPhone technology..

In other words for you novices, manage more load, from different states and traffic, meaning handling a high rate of visits on Linux web server using AkamaiGHost.... This is not iPhone technology..

You know nothing of or how the internet works... and your opinionated comparison of an iphone to website are worthless and illiterate.
