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 ...

Liberals and vagina's...

"n September, according to BLS, the labor force participation rate for women was 57.1 percent, down from 57.3 percent in August and 57.4 percent in July. The female labor force participation rate had also dropped to 57.1 percent this March.

Prior to this March and September, however, the last time the female labor force participation rate dropped as low as 57.1 percent was in February 1989—24 years ago."

In Utah, tea party favorite Sen. Lee faces GOP backlash over government shutdown

Spencer Zwick, a Utah native and national finance chairman for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, was more direct, calling Lee a “show horse” who “just wants to be a spectacle.”

“Business leaders that I talk to, many of whom supported him, would never support his reelection and in fact will work against him, myself included,” Zwick said.

GOP And Tea Party Unfavorability At Record Highs: Poll
Unfavorable ratings for both the Republican Party and the tea party have ticked up to record highs, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday evening.
Sixty-four percent of Americans view the Republican Party unfavorably, and 56 percent view the tea party unfavorably. Both are all-time highs in CNN's polling, although in each case, it's only a 2-point increase from a survey taken Sept. 27 through 29.

Since Bill Clinton used the White House to coerce Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program in 1999.
If you recall, in 2003 the Director of OFHEO testified that Fannie Mae and Freddie were already keeping fraudulent records to hide the CRA failure.
I've got just one question. Since it was obvious the CRA was a failure as early as 2003, why did the Democrats continue to push it until it collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank?

House Republicans Wanted John McAfee’s Advice on Obamacare

Obamacare’s launch has been, if you ask Ezra Klein (but not Joan Walsh!), a disaster.

Reasonably enough, the House committee with appropriate oversight responsibilities wanted to bring in an expert to “guide our oversight and review of” the Healthcare.gov debacle, even as the shutdown showdown was in full swing.

Per CNBC, they chose John McAfee. McAfee has many positive qualities as a website consultant, not least of which being his creation of the eponymous web security software that made him a tech giant. He also has been spending the past few years of his life living an increasingly paranoid and bizarre life in the Latin American country of Belize that included hiring gang members he thought were trying to kill him, and procuring a 17 year-old girlfriend.

Then last fall, he became a “person of interest” in the murder of his fellow American expat neighbor, and went on the run deep into the Latin American jungle. Unable to resist his own desire for attention, he allowed the rugged reporters of Vice to come down and interview him, reporters who then posted a photo from their iPhone that included the precise poolside coordinates of McAfee’s hideout, apparently in Guatemala. He was soon arrested and deported.

All this is to say, John McAfee shouldn’t be getting anywhere near the Capitol of the United States to advise members of Congress, and it’s more than a little concerning that he would be House Republicans’ go-to tech guru. For one thing, it casts doubt on the judgment of their staff. More broadly concerning, it might suggest that the GOP tech gap is even worse than suspected.

The Obama campaign has famously tight relations with the pick of the Silicon Valley litter, including close personal consultations with Google executive Eric Schmidt. Access to the best and brightest the tech industry has to offer is thought to have helped pad Obama’s comfortable margin of victory, and has been contrasted sharply with the Romney campaign’s ORCA get-out-the-vote software that crashed on, rather inconveniently, Election Day.

However, if the House GOP is reaching out to a paranoid eccentric with a questionable history with the truth for their consultation, one very well may wonder if they simply didn’t know anyone else. A source on the committee told CNBC that “In an effort to better understand the technology concerns, we reached out to a few of the experts who have been featured in media reports on the health care exchange ‘glitches.’”

In the Year of Our Lord 2013, website design and management is an enormous industry with countless companies across the country engaged in designing similar projects; there should be plenty right in Congress’s backyard that are familiar with building the projects within the arcane maze of federal contracting regulations. Moreover, this should be an industry anyone with oversight responsibility should be quite familiar enough with to rattle off half a dozen executives who would be able to provide reasoned, reliable insight.

That they went for a guy recently returned from a gun-packing jungle escape from Belize’s law enforcement just about says it all.

Here's a conspiracy for you. DBWriter is a paid professional whose job is to troll the internet and plant phony conspiracies.
It all fits together. Look at the volumes of phony data he digs up to support his phony logic. Who has time to rummage around digging that spin up, unless someone is paying him to do it.
Look at the time frame he posts, pretty much an 8 hour shift.
Is there any topic he isn't an "expert" on?
Look at his persona, aimed to appeal to the far right base.
Swaying opinion is a big money operation, why wouldn't we expect this kind of manipulation on sites like this?
I'm sure he bounces to other sites, probably uses a different ID.
You're outed DB.

You write as if this is the first time in history housing started to slide. Housing starts go up and down routinely.
What happened was, the Democrats' Marxist CRA program caused a fraudulent demand for housing not supported by the economy.
Here is a link where you can read quotes from Democrats negotiating with Republicans for no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program:
http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1222905...
Democrat senators voted for the war in Iraq.
Sens. Akaka (D-HI), Bingaman (D-NM), Boxer (D-CA), Byrd (D-WV), Conrad (D-ND), Corzine (D-NJ), Dayton (D-MN), Durbin (D-IL), Feingold (D-WI), Graham (D-FL), Inouye (D-HI), Kennedy (D-MA), Leahy (D-VT), Levin (D-MI), Mikulski (D-MD), Murray (D-WA), Reed (D-RI), Sarbanes (D-MD), Stabenow (D-MI), Wellstone (D-MN), and Wyden (D-OR).
There's a connection here, dumbass.
The Democrats didn't turn against the war in Iraq until there was nothing left for the Republicans to give them.
The Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapsed the economy after two years oversight (fuck you) by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.
Coincidentally, the institutions that caused the collapse gave more money in bribes to Dodd than any other member of the entire Congress. Second was Obama.
After Obama was named president, these same institutions were reimbursed for far more than their losses due to the economic collapse they caused.
Not the "OMG OMG the CRA" excuse that had been debunked a gazillion times.

Yes Democrats voted for the war in Iraq because George Bush told them about the smoking gun mushroom cloud.

Two years of Democrat oversight was Jan of 2009. How come you are too GD stupid to know this? By that time, half the bailout was spent, housing had already collapsed & the recession was a year old.

Just how GD uninformed are you?

Go back to your subsidized job.

Here's the advice Obama needs:

Scrap the software Obama stole and altered to destroy evidence of the crime.
Install the software as it was intended to be installed. That is, don't delete the copyright references in the software code to destroy the evidence proving Obama stole the software.
If you try to destroy the evidence proving Obama stole the software, it will cause the ObamaKare website to routinely crash.

It's that simple.

Obama still blamed Republicans for their own ineptness.
No one informed him as to the progress - or lack thereof - and warned him it should be delayed a little longer while he repeatedly said "I will not negotiate" delaying it?
His blind followers believed him when he tried to blame Republicans, I'm quite sure.
Therein lies the crux of the problem in this country. The liberals believe everything this president says and the liberal media feeds their confusion.
It is another example of Obama's failure to take responsibility, another "I didn't know." CEO's in private industries don't have that luxury--but the buck NEVER stops with Obama. His learning curve is too steep and he is not a leader. But hey, didn't he say it was all "above his paygrade" in the very beginning?

Kathleen Sebelius: Obama didn't know of website glitches before launch

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday said that President Obama was not aware of glitches in the Obamacare insurance exchange website ahead of its launch and defended the administration's decision to go ahead with the rollout on schedule.

In an interview with CNN, Sebelius was asked when Obama first learned about the tech issues plaguing the Healthcare.gov website.

“It became clear fairly early on, the first couple of days,” Sebelius told CNN’s Sanjay Gupta. Asked if Obama knew about the concerns at HHS and earlier red flags before the Oct. 1 launch date, Sebelius said “no” and that Obama was only told that the team was testing the website.
