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

And why does it matter to you so much what I or anyone else believes?
I'm not going to deny whatever it is I believe just to make you happy. Sorry to have to tell 'ya.
And neither will anyone else.
So maybe you should just stay on your side of the tent and I'll stay on mine.
Galt respects your right to hold any religious beliefs that you choose, but denies that you have the right to force others to agree with your religion, which is exactly what you are doing by pushing to ban abortion.

Okay, I'm tired of trying to find the post this response was meant for - so here it is anyway.

As has been pointed out numerous times, the leaders of France and Germany at that time had a vested interest in Saddam's oil.

Which countries DID support the Iraq War?

Australia: One of Washington's staunchest allies and deployed around 2000 troops.

Britain: London and Washington have stood shoulder-to-shoulder since the September 11 attacks. British troops were deployed.

Israel: Reserved the right to respond if attacked.

Italy: President Silvio Berlusconi, a staunch Bush supporter, also had a tough stance on Iraq...transported planes to the Gulf, military bases for stopovers and refueling.

Japan: Backed its most important ally, the United States.

Kuwait: Offered all possible help and a launch pad for the US invasion of Iraq.

Portugal: Including seven other European nations signed a joint letter expressing support for US policy towards Iraq providing an air base in the mid-Atlantic Azores islands available to US military aircraft.

Qatar: Home to a mobile command staffed by more than 1000 US communications personnel and several hundred British counterparts, the command and control center.

Romania: Approved sending 278 troops and anti-chemical and anti-biological warfare units to the Gulf, offered airbases and the Black Sea port of Constanta for the refueling of warplanes.

East European states such as Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic committed various military assets.

Spain: One of Europe's most vocal US supporters, worked with Bush to muster support, allowed the United States to use its bases to support a military strike on Iraq.

Canada: Offered the US and its soldiers moral support.

Saudi Arabia: Secretly allowed operations from air bases, permitting special forces to stage attacks from Saudi soil and provided cheap fuel. Air campaigns were managed from inside Saudi borders, military commanders operated an air command center and launched refueling tankers, F-16 fighter jets, and sophisticated intelligence gathering flights.

Turkey: Allowed US military to modernize bases for use in war.

27 foreign countries contributed troops to the Coalition in Iraq.

Countries who provided troops or supported operations in Iraq but pulled out at different times between 2004 and 2007 were Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Philippines, Thailand, New Zealand, Tonga, Portugal, The Netherlands, Hungary, Singapore, Norway, Ukraine, Japan, Slovakia.

Russia being one of the few countries against the Iraq War is not a good example. They would oppose anything we did if they were the only ones in the entire world.

China and Syria were among the only other few countries who did not support the Iraq War.

(And since this post took a lot of time and effort, hope at least someone learned something.)

How so??? When Obama was running for election in 2008 I would have agreed with you. At the time, I questioned whether Obama would be able to represent ALL the people. However, since that time, I have come to realize that Obama represents the very people who were ignored by Bush... the poor, the elderly, and the sick. It's not a "black" vs "white" America. It's an America where all people are created EQUAL. Are we better off than we were in 2008? YOU BETCHA!!

"..if Obamacare is fully implemented, at least 129 million (68%) will not be able to keep their previous health care plan either because they already have or will lose that coverage by the end of 2014. This includes:

-9.2 to 15.4 million in the non-group market
-16.6 million in the small group market
-102.7 million in the large group market"

Mormon Church Taking Over in Florida
By Kevin Spear, Orlando Sentinel
6:08 p.m. EST, November 7, 2013
The Mormon church stands to own nearly 2 percent of Florida by completing a deal to buy most of the real estate of the St. Joe Co. for more than a half-billion dollars.
The megapurchase was announced jointly Thursday by a corporate representative of church, which owns the nearly 295,000-acre Deseret Ranches in Central Florida, and by the real-estate and timber business, which has built several communities along the Panhandle coast.
According to the announcement, a church entity, AgReserves Inc., will buy 382,834 acres – the majority of St. Joe's timberlands – in Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla counties for $565 million.
Completion of the deal will leave the Utah-based church with 678,000 acres, an area larger than any other private holding in Florida, according to widely shared but unconfirmed rankings of top landowners.
AgReserves Inc., a taxpaying company of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will maintain timber and agricultural uses of the Panhandle acreage, according to the announcement.
The St Joe Company was founded by Ed Ball of DuPont fame__he was a huge player in old timey Florida politics__most were happy when he died.

The Mormons are good stewards of the Florida agri, wilderness and wetlands they own. Among Florida's other major land holders is Ted Turner.

Its author discredited, a new book on the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya should be treated as a work of fiction, the liberal Media Matters for America said Friday.

In a letter that was provided to TPM, MMA chairman David Brock wrote that, in the wake of CBS News' decision to retract its report centered around details in the book, publication of "The Embassy House" should be "halted immediately" or reprinted "indicating that it is a work of fiction."

Brock also called for a "thorough investigation" into how author Dylan Davies' purported eye-witness account "was vetted and by whom."

First of all, Obama has said it was always his intention that no one should lose a plan he wanted to keep and I believe him.

Obama on those who have received cancellation notices:

"It means a lot to them. And it’s scary to them. And I AM SORRY that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me."

“But obviously, we didn’t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law. And, you know, that’s something that I regret. That’s something that we’re going to do everything we can to get fixed.”

I would call that is all he needs to say. That is certainly more than Bush ever offered in the way of an apology for killing 45,000 Americans.

Go back on this thread to the election days. All the kool aid drinking Obama supporters were adamant that Obamacare was exactly what Obama promised. Fools. They won't be happy until the transition to nanny state is complete. Personal responsibility and personal accomplishment will have no practical value.

Not really. Romney and other Republicans should have demanded that Akin withdraw from the race, and forced him out by any means necessary if he refused. Just as Torricelli was forced out in New Jersey at the last minute.
Republicans were afraid of offending the religious nuts who really believe that stuff.
There you go again...you still think there are more "religious nuts" on our side of the fence who'd agree with such an outlandish comment made by Akin even when he immediately retracted it and clarified it than the overwhelming number of rational people who distanced themselves from it and condemned him for saying it.

And you can't force anyone to do anything. Calls for him to step down were heard loud and clear but you must have been in the shower.
