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 ...

..."the importance of power"...
Sums of the Progressive Party. But the liberal media worships progressive power.
And this is the real danger - not the elected - but the manipulators who determine who gets elected by any means necessary.
what you fools who agree with this fantasy don't understand, and true conservatives do, is that we needed that expansion of federal power as the way we were doing ti didn't work, at least in our changing world.

first off, look at the articles of confederation, our first nation. absolutely, completely failed. utterly. so we made a nation with a stronger federal gov't. as that was why the firs one failed no unity.

then at the turn of the 20th century, we realized our market and banking and business system just didn't work without regulation. and that regulation needed to be nation wide or it would fail for the same reason the articles of confederation failed.

then as our world progressed futher and our country expanded and grew we realized we needed to manage this massive expansion and more complex, interconnected world or it would be utter chaos, like the many third world nations around our planet that had no regulation and no central govt so they could never move beyond corruption and exploitation from the outside.....

perhaps you people that don't understand what the real world teaches us would like to explain why there are no successful countries like this fantasy you have in your mind?and why there never has been?

You really do have your political blinkers on Alice. Obama has every right to dismiss BS questions that have no substance or fact. Its is no different than a reporter running up to a celebrity asking them are they are a child molester without any facts or even hearsay. Fox News wants its own Watergate but every rock they try to turn over comes up with nothing. They shoot blanks all the time and it's only the gullible such as yourself that think there is an ounce of truth in any of it. No other news network in the WORLD thinks Benghazi is a scandal only Fox, so in your distorted view the whole planet is liberal media now using that same Fox logic!
Well now...aren't you the good little brainwashed liberal?

Obama's administration blamed the IRS scandal on a few agents in Cincinnati only to find out these agents testified they got their orders from on high.

The only person who could answer all the questions about the IRS' government's abuse of regular American citizens - which this president was so outraged about - took the Fifth and retired on our dime.

(You don't take the Fifth unless you know something.)

Then there was the spontaneous mob and video cover up even though Panetta and Gen. Ham both testified they knew it was a terrorist attack within minutes of briefing the president.

Are you telling me the Director of the CIA knew it was a terrorist attack and didn't share that little bit of information with the president?

Leon Panetta should come out of hiding and repeat what he said at the initial hearing - that he knew it was a terrorist attack before briefing the president - over and over and over again.

But he's another coward apparently.

You must believe anything or anyone.

An obvious difference between the normal heterosexual union and the abnormal homosexual union is, the union is between members of different genders.
So, why do you want to ignore this obvious difference and pretend it is the same?(I'm assuming you can tell the difference between the male and female genders.)
because it makes absolutely no difference in what marriage is. and you know it. you cannot prove otherwise. you have been challenged to many times and just can't do it. why do you think that is you have to run away from your own words like the little coward you are?

you are nothing but a scared little bigot that is afraid of anything different than you, even when those different than you are clearly better in every way, shape or form a human can be...

run along now, little coward. go hide in your pathetic little hole you cower in...

"In our investigations of the responses of shrimp, crabs, and oysters to infections with the pathogenic bacterium Vibrio campbellii, we have become interested in how a bacterial challenge can influence the performance of organisms in the field. One way to study this is to induce an organism to engage in some elevated activity similar to what might be encountered in the field."
"These studies will give us a better idea of how marine animals can perform in their native habitat when faced with increasing pathogens and immunological challenges."
Studying how a pathogen affects a creature in the wild instead of sitting in a tank.
Perhaps you can tell us how do we simulate a natural setting?
This is another example of right whiners having fit because they are just too stupid to understand something.
perhaps the shrimp industry can fund their own research instead of leeching off the taxpayers....

By the way, Lois Lerner taking the Fifth screams there was AT LEAST a "smidgeon" of corruption which Obama adamantly denied in that interview.

Frankly, one really does have to be stupid not to get the scam being perpetrated by this administration.

But that's what they're hoping - that enough of us really are.

Then again, some people happily drive off used car lots in lemons. They believed another fast talking salesman.

no, any decent lawyer would have told her ot take the fifth and walk away. when you have powerful gov't people on a witch hunt, you will rarely win.

ask the guy who ran blackwater about that. they outright told him they had a bullseye on him. they tried to get him on any tax fraud they could find but there was none. he tool the good advice of getting out before they grind you into the ground...

so taking the fifth only shows she was smart enough to know just what these political witch hunts are all about...and it aint the truth ....

The U.S. Navy’s first supercarrier -- the long-decommissioned Forrestal -- has begun its final voyage to a Texas scrapyard, after the Pentagon tried to sell it, found no takers and had to pay a penny to get rid of it.
The 1,067-foot ship, which was shut down in 1993 after more than 38 years of service, was being towed Tuesday morning down the Delaware River and along the Eastern Seaboard before crossing the Gulf of Mexico to reach All Star Metals in Brownsville. U.S. Navy officials signed a 1-cent contract with the Texas company in October to dismantle the ship perhaps best known for a 1967 incident that killed 134 and injured more than 300 others, including a young Navy aviator named John McCain.
"We started our departure from the dock at 5:31 a.m.," All Star Metals President Nikhil Shah told FoxNews.com , adding that the trip should take roughly 17 days. "This is the largest ship that we’ve ever dismantled, and the largest ship the U.S. government has ever awarded to be dismantled. It’s a very big job to us."
“As crewmembers, we relive July 29, 1967, every time we hear a loud, unexplained noise, whether you’re at the beach or you’re in your office."
- Ken Killmeyer, USS Forrestal historian
Shah declined to specify the precise cost of towing and dismantling the behemoth ship, but said the figure was "in the millions."
All Star Metals hired Foss Marine Towing to drag the ship to its final destination, Shah said.
I guess Alang Gujarat was too far. Over there they'd have that bad boy torn apart in no time www.alangtoday.com where they just pull em up close to the beach and go to work.

Hah__and Lois Lame wonders why marine life is taking a beating.

On that note the Alang salvage workers also take plenty of beatings.

It made a huge difference throughout the entire history of human beings.
For some reason, all of a sudden, there is a political push to ignore the obvious difference between the normal heterosexual union and the abnormal homosexual union, and it is important to you for some reason for there to be an official decree from the government to ignore the obvious difference. So, let's ask the quesiton again.

Why do you want to ignore the very obvious difference between normal heterosexual unions and abnormal homosexual unions?
We still haven't seen an answer to that question.

if you understood what the Tea party stands for,and what the requirements for the tax status those groups with that name were applying for, you would see that they should have been under far greater scrutiny.

can you tell us what those requirements are, Lois? do you even have the slightest clue as to what you are talking about on this issue?
Yeah

Obama's held on to refusing that pipeline longer than WWII. But you wait and see...he'll finally agree to it and use it as a "trump card" right before the election to boost the Democrats who are scared out of their wits about Obamacare.

with single payer, the government will own all medical facilities, all medical personnel will be unionized government employees, and the government will dictate your provider and your treatment.....
