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

It would've helped if we had elected someone who knew what he was doing.
NFL star, Jim Brown, campaigned for Obama. He publicly admitted, "He's in over his head."
Some of us knew that even before the 2008 election. It was pretty obvious. So why didn't people like Jim Brown know that - before it was too late?
Because they wanted a black president and to hell with his policies and what they will do to this country. I could care less what color he is. I knew what a disaster he would be and so did most of the large and small business owners. They can deny this all they want but his candidacy and election is one of the two main reasons we are in this mess.

2013....
Economic Downturn and Legacy of Bush Policies Continue to Drive Large Deficits
http://www.cbpp.org/cms/...
Again, if you read the entire article, in the very first paragraph, "Federal deficits and debts have been sharply higher under President Obama..." even though Bush was blamed for the increased deficit because of the tax cuts and the two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Afghanistan War continues under this president. 111 Democrats voted for the Iraq War and voted to fund it. This administration under a Democrat-controlled Congress expanded the Bush's tax cuts.

At the end of the article: "After more than four years in office, President Obama has continued some policies that began in the Bush era, blurring to some degree the assignment of responsibility for those policies’ budgetary effects."

http://www.cbpp.org/cms/...

Not only has Obama "continued some policies that began in the Bush era" but created his own that has now spiked the deficit to more than $17 trillion.

Bush cannot be blamed for the failed jobs stimulus under Obama, the bailouts of large corporations under Obama, the failed Cash for Clunkers program under Obama and especially the deficit-crippling and job-killing Obamacare under Obama.

Wonder if the CBO will acknowledge these failures which were NOT supported by Republicans while pointing out the Bush failures which WERE supported by Congressional Democrats.

Spending adds to the debt. Without spending, there is no debt.
Where is the Democrats' plan to cut spending?
Where was the Republican plan to cut spending when they passed the Bush tax cuts?

Oh wait, there wasn't one.

But hey, that's OK because Dumbwaiters love Republicans that are big spenders like Paul Ryan,.

Good morning, Homer.

CLEVELAND (CBS Cleveland)– NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown believes President Barack Obama is in over his head as commander in chief.

The Cleveland Browns legend – who campaigned for Obama in Ohio – made the comments on Arsenio Hall’s show.

“I like his family, I like him as a human being,” Brown said.“But somehow it seems like he’s over his head and maybe he underestimated the system of government that we have.”

http://wncx.cbslocal.com/2013/12/11/jim-brown...

"He's underestimated the system of government that we have."

Is Jim Brown, NFL Hall of Famer, former Obama campaigner "dumb" too?

Reagan admin official....who helped write the book on supply side.
Blaming Obama for George W. Bush’s Policies
Although it was quickly overshadowed by his choice of Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate, Mitt Romney released an important document last week by his principal economic advisers that deserves more attention than it got. It is an audacious attempt to blame Barack Obama for the economic mistakes of George W. Bush and Republicans in Congress.
....So whatever caused the 2007-9 recession had to have resulted from policies that the Bush administration was responsible for – either by initiating them or failing to act against them.
Space prohibits a full discussion of these issues, but certainly one factor had to be the squandering of budget surpluses that resulted from the policies of the Bill Clinton administration and their replacement by huge deficits under President Bush.
Mr. Bush inherited a budget surplus of $236 billion from Mr. Clinton in 2000, which fell to $128 billion in 2001. By 2002, the federal government ran a budget deficit of $158 billion, which rose to $377 billion in 2003, and $413 billion in 2004. The deficit fell to $318 billion in 2005,$248 billion in 2006, and $161 billion in 2007, then shot up to $459 billion in 2008.
It should be noted as well that the fiscal 2009 budget was submitted to Congress by Mr. Bush in January 2008 and took effect on Oct. 1 of that year – almost four months before President Obama took office.
Thus the government was running historically large budget deficits long after the end of the 2001 recession. As I have previously documented, these deficits resulted to a large extent from legislated tax cuts during the Bush years.

Also needs repeated: The minimum wage also impedes job creation, as demonstrated by a recent American Action Forum analysis. Employers forced to pay more per hour for labor, makes it impossible for them to expand their workforce and make new hires. California's recent minimum wage increase to $10 per hour will result in a loss of almost 200,000 new jobs. If every state followed suit, more than 2.3 million jobs could disappear nationwide. With 11.3 million unemployed people currently looking for work, driving a wedge between no paycheck and any paycheck is irresponsible.
Flack had a tizzy fit : "Lmao!!! This came from the HuffPost! LMAO!!!"

Then posts something from a right wing political group about the minimum wage. Hypocrisy at its best.

All anyone had to do was look at his political resume and his past and present affiliations.

If he were white, he'd be a footnote in history.

He missed his calling. He should have gone to Hollywood - and auditioned. They would have loved him. He might have been the next Denzel Washington.

But Denzel Washington was no more qualified to become the President of the United States that Barack Obama.

Although agricultural activity occurs in most states, it is particularly concentrated in the vast expanse of flat, arable land known as the Great Plains, which encompasses the central region of the nation.
