Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

This week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough joined the chorus of those decrying the IRS for targeting Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny in applying for nonprofit status.“You can’t allow the government to tread on political speech,” Scarborough said.“The Internal Revenue Service — the taxman — to go after their political beliefs.… I can’t imagine much worse than this,” he added.

Targeting nonprofit groups because of their political beliefs is wrong — pretty much everyone agrees on that. So today’s Scarborough must be outraged by his 2003 self, which gave this monologue on his show “Scarborough Country” on July 13, 2003:

"The leader of the NAACP bashes President Bush and the Republican Party. Why is this clearly partisan group still being funded by your tax dollars?[...]

[T]he NAACP continues to get a free ride off of taxpayers because of the tax-exempt status that’s conferred to them by our federal government, now, this despite the fact the NAACP produced and ran the most vicious campaign attack ad in the history of televised presidential campaign."

Uh, oh...
Obama is a joke

ssssssiiiiiigggggghhhhhh
Nothing, so why do I have to pay more so that lazy people don't have to pay at all? Of course that isn't really the point. What is really needed is a plan to decrease the cost of healthcare which Obamacare does not address.

I would rather see a solar power facility than the smoking stacks of a gas fired power plant like we have at Moss Landing or Dynegy's plant in Morro Bay. Talk about environmental destruction!! At least Ivanpah is located in no man's land.

Name me one good reason why Obama thought he was qualified to become the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief of the United States military.
Just anything to prove his commitment and dedication to protect and preserve those things we hold dear as a nation out of love of country and a deep sense of putting country and its people first.
Or any significant contributions in the Illinois Senate or his two years as a junior senator in the U.S. Congress where he stood by his convictions to make a difference on behalf of all Americans for their and the nation's benefit.
Because every president has to have done something that distinguishes them as worthy and qualified to be a leader...of anyone or anything.
Simply attending Harvard and gaining a modicum of notoriety among liberal elitists in the world of academia isn't what I had in mind.
He won son.

Get over it.

Otherwise, provide the list of requirements you're referring to for becoming president and the corresponding list of reich wingers who meet your qualifications.

I love this comedy channel!

Did you hear her response on MTP when confronted with her lies.

"There is a bunch of hoppity do and do to."

Or something similar as people have different translations of her non-English.

This woman was in charge of writing Obamacare.

What exactly do you have against Americans being pissed off after finding out Obama is forcing them to pay twice as much - up to five times as much in some states - for pediatric and maternal coverage who have no children, who plan to have no children and aging Americans who were perfectly happy with their cheaper and chosen plans that were cancelled?

Only 15% of Americans claimed to be unhappy with their health care insurance.

So 85% of Americans now have to pay more for coverage they don't want or need for the other 15%?

Wasn't there a much more practical and common sense approach than a big government and IRS takeover?
Yeah

Didn't this exact same thing happen immediately before the Democrats' Marxist CRA program crashed the economy in 2008 after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the crash?
I'm thinking the stock markets will crash as soon as they are convinced an audit of the Federal Reserve is likely.
lol! awwww.... poor baby.

Still stuck on stupid for CRA.

But that's ok. It's normal for a reich 'winder!'

Rightwingers are truly dumb. The president and the Dems did not lie when they said you could keep your current insurance, etc, they were referring to it as it pertains to the law.

The insurance companies are the ones cancelling the policies not the Dems or the president.

Lay the fault where it lies with the insurance companies.

Rightwingers are dumb.

You're running away from this, typical for an indoctrinated Democrat dupe.

We have enough Democrat frauds pretending to be veterans here already. We don't need another.

You can say anything you want about the last president. You see, here in the United States, we have this thing called the First Amendment. It's right before the Second Amendment, in case anyone thinks they can do away with the First Amendment.

Since you claim to have been in Iraq fighting a war Bush started for some no good reason, I've got a question for you.

It's 9/12. You're the president. What do you do? Do you:

1) Surrender to the Islamist jihad? Or,
2) Do the Bill Clinton thing and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction and call it a day? Or,
3) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you expect to experience something different than what the Soveits experienced? Or,
4) You do something different that gives you a better chance of kicking the everlovingshit out of the Islamist jihad?

What would you have done? If your answer is 4), do something different, what is it?

Typical Dems who like to diss the military until they want them to protect them.

Typical Dems who diss women until they want their vote and then they throw $9 birth control at them that they could have gotten for free at a local clinic but now pay $100 more a month in premiums for.
