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

<quoted text>Some anonymous Hillary supporters first raised the question of Obama's birthplace as a way to boost her polling numbers. Anonymous usually means someone inside the campaign and it appears that it may have been campaign manager Ken something__I forget and I'm not going to look.
But the birther movement, that continues along to this day was started by right wing scumbags.
The Rethugs have used a memo written by Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist, Mark Penn as a claim that Hillary was a "birther". It's a LIE. Nothing in PENN'S memo suggested that Obama was not born in Hawaii. He merely discussed Obama's diverse, multicultural upbringing and Repukes took it from there by claiming that Penn "implied" that Obama was born in Kenya. Sick freaks.

From Mark Penn's memo:

“All of these articles about his boyhood in Indonesia and his life in Hawaii are geared toward showing his background is diverse, multicultural and putting it in a new light,” he wrote.“Save it for 2050. It also exposes a very strong weakness for him—his roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values.”

“Every speech should contain the line that you were born in the middle of America to the middle class in the middle of the last century,” he advised Clinton.“And talk about the basic bargain as about [sic] the deeply American values you grew up with, learned as a child, and that drive you today.” He went on:“Let’s explicitly own ‘American’ in our programs, the speeches and the values. He doesn’t … Let’s add flag symbols to the backgrounds [of campaign events].”

According to Bloomberg, "The Republican tactic has been to make explicit what Penn intended to be merely implicit—and then carry it to its furthest extreme. Soon, the belief spread among many voters that Obama had been educated in a radical madrassa, that he was secretly a Muslim, and, finally, that he had not even been born in the U.S."

What’s really at work here is simple: Through unnecessary regulations, government has destroyed another working market, telling us what kind of energy to use regardless of cost — based solely on the green movement’s moral beliefs about what kinds of energy are “good.”

Electricity Prices Soar As Government Regulation Surges

Electricity is now one of the most regulated goods in the U.S. Thanks to the Environmental Protection Agency’s sweeping powers to regulate C02 — a power we can’t find anywhere in the Constitution — electricity is becoming a very expensive commodity.

And it’s about to get even more so. According to the Institute for Energy Research, EPA rules put in place to please environmentalists will remove 34,705 megawatts of coal-based energy capacity off our market.

Think about it: That’s equal to about 10% of what we now produce with coal being removed from the grid.

New York Times Investigative Report Utterly Destroys Right Wing Myths About Benghazi Attack
“Fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam”
The right wing narrative on the attacks against the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi is now well-established. It goes something like this:
The Obama administration lied when they initially said the attack was provoked by an American-made anti-Islam video. Actually, it was a well-planned Al Qaeda terror attack that had absolutely nothing to do with the video.
Today, an in-depth investigative report published by the New York Times explores these issues and concludes that nearly everything about this right wing narrative is wrong: A Deadly Mix in Benghazi.
There are a lot of interesting details in the article, but two points are important to note:
Islamist groups did indeed use that anti-Muslim video as a rallying point to launch the initial attack.
There's no evidence that Al Qaeda or any other international terrorist organization was involved, and no evidence of meticulous planning.
the New York Times has zero credibility...the house propaganda organ for the DemoKKKrat party...

Confessions of a Columnist

In ancient Sanskrit, the word “pundit” meant “wise man” or “religious sage.” In modern English, it means “often wrong, rarely accountable.” There are ways that those of us who scribble about politics can avoid living down to that reputation — by keeping our predictions vague (it worked for Nostradamus), by sticking to sure things (I told you Herman Cain wouldn’t be elected president), or by deploying weasel words like “it’s possible that ...” at every opportunity. But time, chance and fallibility eventually make false prophets of us all.

pretty much covers it.

A “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 of the United States
Constitution (the “Natural Born Citizen Clause”). Plaintiff Hillary Clinton sought a TRO prohibiting Obama from running for President and enjoining the DNC from selecting Obama as the nominee.
Plaintiff Hillary Clinton also sought declaratory and injunctive relief in the form of a declaration that Obama is ineligible to run for the office of President under the United States Constitution and a permanent injunction enjoining Obama from running for President and enjoining the DNC from making Obama the Democratic presidential nominee.
Hillary Clinton is, in fact, the original "birther"... you idiot...

PHILIP J.BERG, IS NOT, HILLARY CLINTON "DUMB ASS". Just exactly where in your exhibits is Hillary Clinton listed as a "plaintiff".

If you want to list him as a creditable source, you will have to accept the fact that he also brought a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) lawsuit charging president George W. Bush with complicity in the 9/11 attacks.

Geez, you are stupid.

Random post and Q&A...

'Has anyone ever figured out what the cost to taxpayers would have been if the gov’t just paid the health insurance premiums for people that actually want health insurance but cannot afford it?
JetBlast on December 28, 2013 at 1:08 PM'

"Good question. No real answer since no one really knows the cost of ACA nor how many people would be in the Target group or what the cost would be for each individual.

There are a few facts that can be used and a few some what “safe” assumption that can be made. So here goes a best queses.

Total US population = 316,668,567
15% uninsured = 47,500,285
7% not buy choice = 22,166,799
3.5% would = 11,083,399

ACA cost to date are $3-6 Trillion dollars
Average cost of insurance is about $5,800/year, premiums plus deducts.

These are generally amounts that the government has been putting out with the exception of the ACA Costs which are what is generally floating through the blogs and the news.

You can set this up your self on a spread sheet and as the news changes you can see the cost changes.

Any case here goes. Target population of 11,083,399 X annual cost $5,800 = Annual cost $64,283,719,101. That’s $64.2 Billion or about 1%-2% of what the first year ACA costs are.

You can use what ever numbers you like from what ever source you can find and the answer is going to be some variation of the same that ACA is very, very, costly.

lest we forget they have the TOP, TOP people on this and the are not accountable for any of it'

YOUR article itself FAILED to provide adequate PROOF and makes some wild stretches. This is excerpts from a book someone is trying to sale.

The article/book also fails to acknowledge documented KNOW facts that were presented during the hearings.

Pretty simple concept.

You are as hopeless as trying explain something to USAsince.
