Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

When everyone says it originated from the Hilary campaign and still you remain in denial -you are the one hiding from the truth.
Looks like the Hillary campaign got desperate.

From Politico:

Birtherism: Where it all began

If you haven’t been trolling the fever swamps of online conspiracy sites or opening those emails from Uncle Larry, you may well wonder: Where did this idea come from? Who started it? And is there a grain of truth there?

The answer lies in Democratic, not Republican politics, and in the bitter, exhausting spring of 2008. At the time, the Democratic presidential primary was slipping away from Hillary Clinton and some of her most passionate supporters grasped for something, anything that would deal a final reversal to Barack Obama.

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.
known facts?

so why is it so hard for you to present them? either put up or shut up.

ok, we can go.

Criticizing Administration Policy Is Legitimate and Absolutely Necessary, Lying About It Isn’t

John Podhoretz’s criticism of yesterday’s media coverage is typical:

This was an effort — not entirely conscious — to make it illegitimate for Romney to criticize the president’s foreign policy at a moment when foreign policy has suddenly taken center stage.

The overwhelming majority of critics objected to Romney’s original statement and press conference remarks because they included the scurrilous lie that the administration sympathized with attackers in Cairo and Benghazi. Romney went ahead and told this lie on the flimsy basis of an unauthorized embassy statement, which he continued to pretend was a response to the attacks, and persisted in his larger lie that has been one of the main themes of his entire campaign (i.e., that Obama has repeatedly “apologized for” America).

No one said that it was illegitimate for Romney to criticize administration foreign policy. Obviously, Romney has been criticizing administration foreign policy for years, and for the most part journalists and analysts have shrugged. To the extent that Romney’s foreign policy arguments have received much attention, they have mostly been dismissed as campaign posturing or described as enigmatically vague, but no one has questioned that Romney has every right to make those arguments. Indeed, many pundits and journalists with a strong interest in foreign policy have wished that Romney would have more to say in greater detail than he has.

Some people said that it was in poor taste to insert himself into the story of the embassy attacks as quickly as he did, but the real issue wasn’t one of timing or decorum. The main problem with Romney’s intervention Tuesday night and yesterday morning was that his entire criticism of the administration’s response to the attacks was thoroughly dishonest. This wasn’t a matter of having a different, more skeptical interpretation of something that happened. This was a case of accusing the administration of something (i.e., sympathizing with embassy attackers) that it plainly had not done and wasn’t about to do. It would have been perfectly legitimate and even useful for Romney to ask what the administration intended to do next, question what the security arrangements in Benghazi had been, and insist on accountability for any mistakes. Instead of offering anything remotely resembling constructive criticism, Romney immediately launched a false attack intended to link his opponent with people responsible for assaulting U.S. diplomatic missions.

Criticism of administration policy by a presidential challenger and his party is both legitimate and necessary. It’s a shame that Romney chose to abuse that responsibility. He has not only further discredited himself, but he has also made it that much harder to hold the administration accountable for any real mistakes or failures they might have made.

Here is the President’s statement on the Benghazi attack. Readers can judge for themselves, but it seems an appropriate initial response to me. There is no “sympathy” for the attackers to be found in that statement, and the Romney campaign’s attempt to use a foolish statement from the U.S. embassy in Cairo as the official position of the administration was typically dishonest. Romney didn’t have much credibility on this front before last night, and he has even less now.

Hard to believe that Banks are favored over government. Are we that naive? Presently banks with the austerity might of republicans have already started to try to water down the Volcker Rule. What another repeat of history twice done over.??{1929-2008}
Nobel Prize author on economics Joseph E Stiglitz wrote a book that is layman friendly that delves into a variety of factors that produced "The Price Of Inequality" which is also the title of his book.
What we are observing here is the same game plan of the banks attacking the Glass-Steagall Act Federal law enacted by Congress in 1933 forcing a separation between commercial banking and investment banking. Watering it down to the point that by 1999 it was worthless. Savings and Loans debacle of the 80's should have sounded the alarm of the watering down of the Glass-Steagall law was inappropriate to say the lease. Yet they continued until we eventual mimicked the 1929 crash in 2008. I can see their motivation for after the debacle wealth increases to the 1% and poverty increase to the lower tiers advances. That has lead us to what we are rewarded with at present; http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali...
Orthodox communism fell for its inability to compete on the International Free Trade Markets. Poorly regulated Capitalism will face a similar fate as the communist.
Deregulation of our Banks and investment financial industries will once again produce a collapse. Accumulated wealth to the minority will be the coup of our Democracy.
We can presently observe some of the signs that support this contention as we have regressed as global leader in Education to 46th and our Health Quality to surprisingly to 46th . Our Gini coefficient increased since the 80's from a .4 to presently .47 Third world coefficient is at .5 and above. Texas leads the states with a over a .6 coefficient.
If its not too late it is paramount to reign in this increasing inequality and level the fields of wealth and poverty. There are nations that have brought their inequality under control.

"For Randall Hepworth, a pediatrician in suburban Sacramento, that means he’ll get $75 to examine a low-income child with a sore throat, up from the current Medi-Cal rate of about $26. That will bring the rate for low-income patients close to those with private insurance, where the average reimbursement is $70 to $85."

so, doctors will get paid more to treat Medicaid patients than to treat patients who pay for insurance under ObamaKKKare....maybe...

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-10-04/cali...
from your reference:

Just 57 percent of California physicians accepted new Medi-Cal patients in 2011, the second-lowest rate after New Jersey, the budget group said in an April report.

Patient advocates say the flood of new Medi-Cal patients may be unable to find doctors, clinics and pharmacies willing to take them.

“We can take only up to 20 pregnant patients per month,” said Haskins, who practices obstetrics and gynecology in Folsom.“As it approaches five Medi-Cal patients in a month, we have to say no, I’m sorry, I can’t take any new Medi-Cal patients.”

“With the anticipated decrease in state reimbursements, that number will certainly go down.”

No Margin for Error: the GOP and Foreign Policy

......Romney felt compelled to seize on Benghazi and Cairo to ward off attacks from hawks in his party, but I suspect he also thought this was a clever political move. Like others in his party, Romney claimed to see Obama as a new Carter, and a high-profile failure overseas might have seemed to fit into the story Romney wanted to tell. One problem Romney had in taking advantage of this was that he was personally untrustworthy and prone to shameless opportunism, so as soon as tried to make political hay out of the attack he met with a very negative response. But this wasn’t just a question of Romney’s flaws. It fit a pattern of Republican hawkish criticism that tried to use any episode, no matter how trivial or minor, to portray the incumbent as a bungler, but by September 2012 the hawks had cried wolf far too many times for most people paying attention to these issues to listen to what they said. Republicans have no margin for error on foreign policy, but Republican hawks keep making arguments that require a very large one.

What Money can buy. Corrupting of facts to the populist. Deceiving them to vote for regression . Our mythical status as the leader of the free world has tumbled down with the ever increasing corrosion. Skewing the voters to be adaptable for corralling. Sheep ready for the clipping. All of their wooly wealth to service the owners. Observe the corral under construction.
Health Care policies has been evaluated by the “World Bank” No doubt to determine our risk factors.
Medicaid programs have been scaled back.{ Republicans “Poison Pill” of 2005} as one example. Increasing our losses to health issues.“Especially among the elderly and the impoverished. Life expectancy in the USA is 78 years, lower than Japan’s 83 years or Australia’s or Israel’s 82 years…. 2009 “World Bank” USA ranked USA fortieth overall, just below Cuba.
Infant and maternal mortality rate in USA is greater than Cuba, Belarus, Malaysia, to name a few. Impoverished USA civilians have a 10% lower life expectancy than those at the top.
1st in overall health care expenditure and
2nd in total health expenditure as % of GDP...but
37TH in the WHO ranking of the world’s health system performance...and
72nd in overall level of health!
44th of 224 countries in Infant mortality
121st of 223 countries in overall death rate
50th of 224 countries in life expectancy
Sources include the CIA Fact Book, the World Health Organization, and the United Health Foundation
