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

What would you rather the senate wasted their time on? They are getting paid. If the bills are so partisan and pointless you would thing hairless reed would want a vote. Do you know why he will not bring them up for a vote? The answer is real simple, hairless is afraid they would, at least some of them, would pass.
Are you denying that hairless refuses to bring the bills up fro a vote?

PINK FLOYD LYRICS
"Learning To Fly"
Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast,
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, I
Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought, I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone
A soul in tension -- that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night
There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Republicans love to point fingers at others when it comes to Benghaz while failing to hold themselves responsible.

In 2012, in reference to additional resources for security efforts at key locations overseas, Republican Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, of the Foreign Relations Committee said they will not provide funds for additional embassy security until such time as a "top-to-bottom” review of the State Department is completed to ensure existing resources are being properly used. This Republican obsession with control of the purse strings is a killer.

But Obama's reelection was the best thing that could have happened. It's the silver lining.
If Romney had won, the polarization and divisiveness would have continued indefinitely.
Not only will the perpetually confused get it when Obamacare hits the fan but even progressive liberals will have to admit defeat.
The question is will you be able to handle it? Since its success isn't looking so good.
Romney did NOT want to move to a smaller house.

"Even if one takes into account that Millennials in the long run eventually will become old themselves and benefit from these subsidies, Obamacare still is an extraordinarily bad deal that effectively would force today’s 18-year olds to pay 18 percent more for their medical care over a lifetime than if each generation paid its own way.
"Such an age-related tax is unconscionable. Imagine if sales taxes or income taxes included a surcharge for everyone who happened to be a twenty-something. If this idea sounds preposterous, welcome to Obamacare."

Some refer to liberals like you as progressives, that is wrong, you are regressives, you love the fact that our loser president bows to your every wish by filling all the hands of the losers, with food stamps, millions more on food stamps since the boy president nobama took office.

Then again, you might find some comfort in knowing we'll probably be in the same boat when Social Security implodes even before I kick the bucket.
Maybe we should learn a lesson from SS before we repeat the same mistake with Obamacare.
Nevermind. You probably don't get it.
I see the sky is still falling, Chicken Little.
Again, Lorac, when have ANY of your 'it's the end of the world' predictions ever come true?
SS is just fine.
After 2033, Social Security could pay three-fourths of scheduled benefits using its tax income if policymakers took no steps to shore up the program.(Those who fear that Social Security won’t be around at all when today’s young workers retire and that young workers will receive no benefits misunderstand the trustees’ projections.)
The program’s shortfall is relatively modest, amounting to 1 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over the next 75 years (and 1.6 percent of GDP in 2087, the 75th year). A mix of tax increases and benefit modifications — carefully crafted to shield recipients with limited means and to give ample notice to all participants — could put the program on a sound footing indefinitely. Social Security benefits are very modest. The average retiree or elderly widow receives just $15,000 a year from Social Security (and the average disabled worker even less); an unmarried elderly person, on average, has just $3,000 in annual income other than his or her Social Security. Accordingly, taxes should make up a large proportion of a solvency package.

Report says Valerie Jarrett gave the order to stand down in Benghazi
See alsoGovernment Topics Benghazi Scandal Valerie Jarrett Rush
August 8, 2013
A post at the Conservative Report Online made the shocking claim that Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett gave the order to stand down in Benghazi during the Sept. 11 terror attack that saw four Americans killed, citing only unnamed "confidential sources." The report was discussed by Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday and an editorial at the Investor's Business Daily said Wednesday that it would not have been the first time Jarrett issued such an order.

"The military-order, not to initiate action, saving our men in Benghazi, was issued by the President's Advisor, Valerie Jarrett," Chip Jones wrote.

Limbaugh said that if the story is true, it would explain "all of the serial lies and the cover-ups and the obfuscation and all of the efforts that were made to distract people's attention from this."

"Somebody had to give the order, and Obama was off the grid. That has always, to me, been one of the most interesting aspects of Benghazi. Five o'clock he tells Panetta and whoever else -- we were originally told that Hillary, secretary of state, was there, too," he added.

Naturally, the ultra-left wing Media Matters weighed in, attacking Limbaugh for mentioning the story.

Others also reported on Jones' account, but did not get scrutinized by Media Matters.

The Blaze said the allegations are worth noting for two main reasons:

The White House hasn’t been forthcoming with details about the deadly terror attack. In fact, the administration has gone out of its way to craft blatantly false narratives involving a YouTube video; and
It’s been widely reported that Jarrett’s influence has shaped our management of international crises, specifically her role in convincing President Obama to call off the planned raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani hideout three separate times.
Meredith Jessup said she is taking the report with a grain of salt, but added that the burden of proof is on the White House, since it "has worked overtime to muddy the water and obfuscate the truth."

Now the administration is claiming the entire scandal is "phony," a mere distraction cooked up by Republicans to keep Congress from acting on Obama's economic plans.

"Until the Obama administration is forthright and truthful with the American people, the rumor mill will continue churning out reports from unnamed sources," Jessup added.
