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 ... Read more

Funny, first it was passed by the GOP controlled Congress.
You DO know how bills become laws, right?
I thought the GOP was for smaller Government.So why do they keep passing bills to increase the deficit?
I know the Right has a little difficulty discerning reality from wishful thinking bigot-boy but they ARE finished.
Dont take my word for it!

YOU are the liar boy.
The GOP has been working hammer and tong redistricting in red states where they can get away with it as well as the push to 'Fix" the non existant problem of 'voter fraud' to do just that:
Suppress voters who might vote Democrat.
You know it and so does everyone else.

<quoted text>....The warm-up act for President Obama’s speech here Friday featured a four-piece jazz band playing in front of a John Deere tractor. Obama’s quest to bring together two other disparate elements — Democrats and Republicans — was not as successful.
The president traveled to this middle-American college town to tout the passage of a $1 trillion farm bill this week, a rare bipartisan achievement by Congress that the president was eager to highlight. Six congressional Democrats flew aboard Air Force One —
“This was a good sign Democrats and Republicans in Congress were able to come through with this bill and break the cycle of short-sighted, crisis-driven partisan decision-making,” Obama told a crowd of 500 at the McPhail Equine Performance Center on the Michigan State University campus.“That’s how we should expect Washington to work.”
Having pledged during his State of the Union address last month to more forcefully apply his executive authority to work around Republican opposition, Obama may have managed to make the problem even worse. Obama’s shifting tone — he’ll work with Congress when he feels like it and go around the legislative body when he wants — has led his rivals to wonder how they are supposed to trust him on the type of large-scale initiatives for which he needs their support, including immigration reform, long-term unemployment insurance and a minimum wage hike.
A day earlier, Boehner had dampened expectations for a bipartisan immigration deal by insisting that the GOP’s distrust of the president is too pronounced. Republicans have been attacking Obama for altering health-care law requirements, deferring deportations of young illegal immigrants and using his “pen and phone”— Obama’s phrase — to rule by “Executive Order tyranny.”
“He is running around the country telling everyone he’s going to keep acting on his own,” Boehner said.“And he’s feeding more distrust about whether he is committed to the rule of law.”

Its amazing how incapable Teabaggers are when it comes to learning from their mistakes.
Just months after the Epic Fail that was their treasonous and expensive extortion leading to Shutdown hoping to by some strange alchemy of wishful thinking and distortion to re-cast it as "Obama's Shutdown" NOW they hope that they can weasel out of immigration reform which they dont want and that the Hispanic community will blame it on Obama because a bunch of White Racists and Neo Fascists 'dont trust him'......Brilliant.
And Obama decides to side step the House' mindless obstructionism using the the Executive Powers legally Granted him by the Constitution and its 'Tyranny'.
Newsflash morons: The majority of American People arent as stupid and blind as your Teabagger base.
Which you are about to find out.

<quoted text>Amen.
'A town hall meeting with Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) took a bizarre turn recently when a woman in the audience declared that President Obama "should be executed as an enemy combatant" and the congressman kept speaking cordially with her.
Bridenstine issued a statement on Thursday denouncing the remark, but that wasn't until eight days after someone posted a video of the town hall online.
It's unclear when the town hall was held. But the video that was posted Jan. 29 shows Bridenstine speaking with a small group of people inside a room.
At one point in the video, a woman can be heard calling for the President to be killed and saying something about "the Muslims he is shipping into our country."
In response, Bridenstine offered some sympathy for the woman's views.
"Everybody knows the lawlessness of this president. He picks and chooses which laws he's going to enforce or not enforce, he does it by decree," Bridenstine told her.
After talking with the woman, Bridenstine took a question from another woman who said the president should be impeached. He laughed at her comment, but did not dispute it.
"You know, you look so sweet," he said to the woman.'
The Right's fetid obsession with Obama has made them Mentally Ill.
You would think the GOP would have figured out by now that inciting and humoring these dingbats comes with a price tag.

Leon Panetta admitted in one of the first hearings that he knew it was a terrorist attack within minutes after it began. General Cater Hamm also testified he knew it was a terrorist attack almost immediately. Both of them went directly to brief the president.
That's all any of us need to know. Unless you're going to tell me Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA at that time, and General Carter Ham, the Combatant Commander of Africa Command (AFRICOM) and a key figure in the Benghazi investigations, would deliberately not tell the president this.
And once again nitwit, no one ever denied it was a terrorist attack.

Obama's elite inner circle - namely, Valerie Jarrett, would be my guess - gave Obama permission to send Susan Rice out to five different networks to begin repairing any collateral damage by blaming a video since the election was right around the corner.
That was the first attempt at a cover up. Obama and Hillary then continued to blame a video days and weeks afterwards. That was the second attempt at a cover up.
Jarrett - and Obama and Hillary - didn't stop to think the truth would come out eventually:
Leon Panetta knew it was a terrorist attack within minutes after it began.
General Ham knew it was a terrorist attack within minutes after it began.
Both Panetta and Ham briefed the president within an hour after it began.
And the Senate Intelligence Committee eventually let the cat out of the bag.
But stopping to think wasn't the priority at hand. Winning an election was.
Sure dimwit except that the bipartisan Senate report on Benghazi completely debunks your idiotic claim that there was a cover-up and states that there's evidence that the video could have been at the very least a pretext for the attack.
Keep chasing your tail and repeating crap that's been debunked for a while.

Now well get to see Republicans try to beat down America again with the debt ceiling bullsh*t.

They just passed spending that they knew would create more debt that would exceed the debt ceiling.

But now they will run in circles waving their arms about "OMG OMG the debt the debt" totally forgetting most of them were there under George W Bush voting "yes" "yes" "yes" on the policies & spendings that created the worst recession in 80 years that brought about the very debt they now blame on others.

When will the Republican Party decide to help America???

Your spin meter just went into overdrive.
Blaming the deaths of those Americans on a spontaneous mob who were incited by a video is not even in the same universe as blaming their deaths on a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11.
This president was talking about the original 9/11 in the Rose Garden the next day. His reference to terror was directly in response to that attack - not Benghazi.
If you'd like to read the transcript of that speech, I'll be glad to post it.
In the meantime, turn down the knob. You might blow a fuse.
No he wasn't referring to the original 9/11 attacks nitwit. You're either a damned liar or you have the reading comprehension of a gerbil.
Were there attacks on our embassies in Cairo, Tunis and Yemen related to the video? Yes.
Is it beyond the realm of possibility that this same video was a pretext for the attack in Benghazi the day after? No.
On Oct. 16, David Kirkpatrick of the New York Times reported from Cairo:
"To Libyans who witnessed the assault and know the attackers, there is little doubt what occurred: a well-known group of local Islamist militants struck the United States Mission without any warning or protest, and they did it in retaliation for the video. That is what the fighters said at the time, speaking emotionally of their anger at the video without mentioning Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden or the terrorist strikes of 11 years earlier. And it is an explanation that tracks with their history as members of a local militant group determined to protect Libya from Western influence.… The assailants approvingly recalled a 2006 assault by local Islamists that had destroyed an Italian diplomatic mission in Benghazi over a perceived insult to the prophet. In June the group staged a similar attack against the Tunisian Consulate over a different film.… Other Benghazi militia leaders who know the group say its leaders and ideology are all homegrown.…[T]hey openly proselytize for their brand of puritanical Islam and political vision. They profess no interest in global fights against the West or distant battles aimed at removing American troops from the Arabian Peninsula."
So where's your evidence that the video had nothing to do with the attack? You have none.
Your fuse blew a long time ago Carol.

Trying to shed some light into the darkness isn't well-received by some, obviously.
They'd rather believe a president who holds no one accountable, answers no questions, and is more concerned about staining his legacy than transparency and blames Fox.
Oh well. But thanks anyway for the backup.
Bullcrap Carol, all you do is post the same lies and Fox talking points. You're not try to shed light on anything.
Transparency you say? One of the last executive orders Bush signed was to restrict access to presidential papers and records. One of Obama's first was to lift those restrictions.

Yes but you got to understand that her definition of "being honest with the American People"
Is admitting to every sick,crack brained,paranoid charge and scurilous accusation they have ever projected upon him.
Then resigning from office.
Thats all she wants.
By the way PDU really enjoy the way your constantly taking Lois to school....at least she has the good grace to usually pretend like she didnt read your replies that decontruct her Teabgging fallacies for the rubbish they are( its not like she could respond with facts since she doesnt have any.) but the shrill pissy whinning from her little pilot fish tea baggers like Nostrill Hair Waxman and 'Galt' the Ayn Rand Cipher is hilarious.

The Republican party at least what its decompensated into over the last decade would PERISH in a vital strong prosperous America.
An invigorated middle class working and making money,secure in their homes and jobs with a little left to enrich their lives would be POISON.
When you draw your power in direct proportion to the amount of Frustration,Fear and Anger and resentment that you can stir up then expolit a Healthy Secure America is the LAST thing you want.
When many people doing well means less of the Nation's Wealth in the Hands of the tiny minority at the top who want it all and that minority are the only ones you TRULY represent its not something you want to see happen.
When you look at what theyve been doing for the last twenty years in that light I cant understand why more people havent figured out that whats good for the filty rich few and fascist Idealogues and cultists isnt in the best interests of Most Americans.

Don't own a gun myself and probably never will. Just wouldn't be afraid to use one in self defense. So not sure where that puts me in the pioneer spirit category.
You may think so Carol, but as the military found out it takes a lot of training and psychological conditioning to inure someone to the possibility of taking another human life. During WWII a study showed only a 15-20% firing rate among Army rifleman. When the military replaced simple bulls eye targets with human shaped targets that dropped when hit the rate rose from the 20% in WWII to 55% in Korea to 95% in Viet Nam.
If you're going to use deadly force against another human being it has to be without hesitation or second thought. Most human beings aren't capable of this and would end up dead in such an encounter.
