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 ...

Iraq at least had a chance to grow into some version of democracy if residual troops had been left behind to finish what was started and if Obama had lifted a little finger to try and negotiate those terms into fruition.
But Obama just wants to be right and that applies to Iraq as well. Nevermind the blood and treasure that has been lost.
Yes, Bush did a wonderful job ordering the surge and helping Iraq to stand on its own two feet.
Can you say Obama did a wonderful job letting Iraq dissolve back into chaos without even a feeble attempt to prevent it?
I see you are incapable of learning.

Look up why Obama is not leaving these troops in Iraq.

Please. Don't post nonsensical crap. I don't want to argue with you.

Old technology incandescent lightbulbs, invented by Thomas Edison in 1880, are actually electric heating elements inside a sealed glass capsule.

They are innefficient, have caused countless fires, and wear out quickly.

I have been switching to LED bulbs, and find them better than compact fluorescents. I bought one with a 7 year warranty.(Phillips)

The whining from the luddites about lightbulbs is stupid.

Do they want to go back to 1880?? Good. Park their cars, buy a horse.

What did Bush do about Katrina? He totally underestimated the degree of disaster & failed miserably.<quoted text>

I did some research on why the delay with FEMA:
-The Govenor of The State has to request via a submitted form to The Federal Government to receive FEMA assistance.

-President Bush personally contacted then Governor Kathleen Blanco "pleading" with her to declare Louisiana as a state of emergency and start the process so he could send FEMA in AND to start evacuation process. Until I researched, I didn't know The State is the one that has to request Federal ( EM) Assistance or The Federal Government cannot act.
Blanco never did either ... Until it was too late.

-The degree of disaster was underestimated by both ( former ) Governor Kathleen Blanco and (( former ) New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin who both ignored President Bush's phone callS AND the phone calls from The National Weather Service - Bulletin for the New Orleans region of 10:11 a.m.,... 56 hours before Katrina's landfall. All warnings were ignored.

-Both Blanco & Nagin allowed their Egos to get in the way of their common sense and ( poor ) leadership abilities. Go do some research as to WHO was at fault. It wasn't President Bush.

I just keep up with world events. You should try it.
What's your impression of Putin's message to the world on New Year's Eve?
Sorry but I don't go for revisionists history.

Let's start with the failed U.S. forces raid to kidnap lead terrorist Mohammed Farrah Aidid in Somalia. While their original mission was peace-keeping and protect U.N. workers distributing food, mission creep morphed the mission into an active, let's take sides mission, small scale nation building. Kidnapping a militia leader is not a peace keeping mission.

Remember, one person's terrorists is anothers freedom fighter. On you take sides, prepare for combat, as you are no longer a peace-keeper.

as for all that crap about President Clinton having and letting go Osama bin Laden, its all crap. We didn't even realize Al Qaeda,(Arabic for "The Base") was an organization until 98 after Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda took credit for the African Embassy bombings. Up until that point we thought of it as a physical location.

Until then, we had no knowledge that Osama bin Laden had attacked U.S. assets and forces. So that so called deal with Sudan to turn over Osama, we a country where the rule of law used to be adhered to, had nothing to prosecute him for.

Counter Terrorism was identified as the biggest threat to the U.S. under Clinton and became the primary focus of our intel community, law enforcement and military. The Clinton administration tried to brief the incoming Bush administration but the latter refused to meet with the principles.

Under AG Ashcroft, counter terrorism was relegated to secondary importance. The evangelical minister Ashcroft thought illegal drugs and prostitution were a bigger threat. Hence that 40 man, 24/7 stakeout of a New Orleans brothel that was on-going during the attacks of 9/11.

As for Iraq, try reading George H.W. Bush & Brent Scowcroft's op-ed on why they didn't take out Saddam at the end of Gulf War I. he pretty much predicted what would happen, did.

http://www.millat.com/ghalibcom/events/iraq98...

Taking out Saddam had the same result of what happened in Yugoslavia when Tito died. Decades of oppression by the Sunni minority over the majority Shia could only end in civil war. Being that Iran is Shia and has backed the Iraqi Shiites could also have one result-Iran having great influence in Iraqi politics.

The situation is only going to continue to get worse in Iraq. No amount of troops is gonna change that. It will only result in a drain on our national treasury and more Americans being killed, maimed for life and wounded.

Accept reality.

As fine print is wont to do, it had buried itself in a long form — Balhorn’s application for free health insurance through the expanded state Medicaid program. As the paperwork lay on the dining-room table in Port Townsend, Prins began reading.
She was shocked: If you’re 55 or over, Medicaid can come back after you’re dead and bill your estate for ordinary health-care expenses.
The way Prins saw it, that meant health insurance via Medicaid is hardly “free” for Washington residents 55 or older. It’s a loan, one whose payback requirements aren’t well advertised. And it penalizes people who, despite having a low income, have managed to keep a home or some savings they hope to pass to heirs, Prins said
http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/202246...
Consider this;

First your side whines about all the 'free' healthcare given to poorer folks.

Then some Gov'ts, like WA, figure out a way to get some of the taxpayers money back, and you whine.

Is there anything you won't whine about??

You're catching on. No, we don't believe MSNBC. We don't believe ABC, CBS, NBC, and any of the other networks obviously ignoring the blatant facts proving Obama is an ignorant buffoon.

Now, why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi?
Why are there Islamist terrorist organizations in the White House every day?

And, what do you think about Putin's' message to the world saying he was going to annihilate Islamist terrorists this year? Do you think he's serious? Do you think these clowns running this White House will go bumbling stumbling into another trap a blind person can see like they did in Syria last year?

I don't call people who never make themselves worth more than minimum wage "working people". Working people are those who don't get run off because they can't show up for work every goddam day on goddam time and they do what they're paid to do while they're at work. Anyone who did this could afford what health insurance cost before the Democrats forced their Marxist ObamaKare on everyone. Oh, yeah. Spending you rmoney drinking and gambling in all the road-side casinos doesn't count as not being able to afford health care.
In short, yes, everyone who can be called "working people" could afford health insurance for their family. ObamaKare changed that.
You can keep the change.
But you claim businesses can't afford to pay more than minimum wage. Now you claim people who work minimum wage are unable to show up at work.

Then you claim these people can buy health insurance.

More proof you have no clue what health insurance costs buying as individuals.

Is there anything you actually know anything about besides mooching off subsidies?

It has been predicted a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall before the mid-term elections.
Can Obama and Democrats fare if that's true? Will growing anxiety among Americans be enough just fearing that as a distinct possibility put this party in jeopardy? How low will the numbers have to go before Obama admits this law is defeated and we can start over again?
Just thinking ahead.
No you're not.

You're just spreading your paranoia and fear.

It's amazing how the Christmas Crew, you, Gunner, and Nobraina, all show up each night after most folks have turned in, just so you can vent your fear and hatred for a changing world that you neither understand nor are a participant in.

And you're here first thing AM.

Why does a person without insurance pay a higher cost for prescriptions than an insured one? The medication is the same.
The retail pharmaceutical industry is another mystery.

BTW lily, some medicines can be purchased for much less without using your insurance or Medicare, my wife always asks for a comparison even though she's in Walgreen's system. And of course many insured find great savings by purchasing by cash from Canada.

Did you know that pet medicines can be purchased for much less from Canada as well?

Quit misrepresenting what Realtime said.

Bush screwed up big time by ignoring the devastation of Katrina.

Polls verified this repeatedly. Even Bush admitted he mishandled the 'flyover'. Even today, Katrina is considered by historians to be one of Bush's bigger mistakes as President.

That and 'Good job, Brownie', were major screw-ups.

But you'd rather come here and tell lies.

Got it.

Did you see this, Lily? An NBC World News report?

"An official report released by the NHS this week found that thousands of Britons may have died unnecessarily because of poor care.

"It said that failing NHS hospitals are 'trapped in mediocrity' and named 11 hospitals in desperate need of improvement. Moreover, one member of the investigating panel said that the facilities named were not even the worst in the country."

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/17...

Is this the kind of health care you and Obama want to emulate?
