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

Okay, then, I'll say it. Obama doesn't have any idea in the world what to do.
He's in over his head. Always has been. Always will be.
I'd also say what Britt Hume said - who, by the way, has been too "fair and balanced" where this president is concerned in the past - if he hadn't said it better than I could.
“I think that Barack Obama misunderstands the world, that he had limited experience of it and in it, and I think he has proved, as Oscar Goodman, the mayor of Las Vegas, said in another context, to be a very slow learner.”
That's your opinion Carol, but it's cosmically delusional. But let's get to your "too" Fair and balanced Britt Hume.
As federal disaster response teams continued work to alleviate the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, Fox News' Brit Hume tweeted some ill-informed snark about how the closure of federal offices in Washington, DC undermines the idea that "big federal government" is "needed to deal with big problems like Sandy."
This is about as ignorant an observation as one can make about the federal government's disaster response. It's true that most federal employees in the Washington, DC area were, out of concern for their safety, told not to come to work on October 29 and 30. However, "emergency employees" -- like the ones working for FEMA -- were and are "expected to report to their worksites." Because that is their job.
As for Obama's handling of Crimea the memories of the administration's critics are short. After all, President Bush didn't roll back the Russian occupation of South Ossetia and Abkhazia after Vladimir Putin's battering of Georgia in August 2008. Bush didn't lead an alliance of the willing to isolate Russia, undermine its economy, mine the Black Sea, provide defense guarantees and rush American military supplies to Tblisi. Instead, Dubya simply denounced Moscow's reaction using much the same language President Obama is deploying now.
If your hero Bush had any understanding of the world he wouldn't have destabilized an entire region with his reckless actions in Iraq which only served to give Iran the upper hand in the region that they couldn't get on their own.
You're an idiot Carol!

Pelosi’s most prized candidate, Alex Sink brought down because of her unwavering support for obama and obamaCare, and that be a loud warning for all other democRats soon to be losing (D) seats in Congress.

Pinellas county Florida, a democRatic stronghold in Florida, voting obama 2 terms, Pinellas county voters have made the right choice; Republican David Jolly a dedicated and thoughtful representative for the people of Pinellas county opposding obama and obamacare newly elected to Congress..

Alex Sink destroyed thousands of people with foreclosure.. The harm her special interests and Bank of America caused..

Any idiot liberal who says democRats will win the House and the Senate races in 2014, is likely telling you what he wants rather than what he knows..

Yeah, well, the warmongers who are intent on killing you and the rest of us don't necessarily share your same views.
There is more danger in the world today than at any time in history.
But you go ahead - roll over and play dead or pretend you're safe in your isolated denial. If it had been up to you, Hitler would have won WWII.
Really Carol? Which president allowed the most devastating attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor despite warnings from the intelligence community? That would be your hero George W Bush.
What party represented the largest opposition to our involvement in WWII? That would be your Republican Party although there were some conservative Democrats also.
Hitler would not have won WWII Carol; he assured German defeat when he invaded Russia. By the time the first American boots landed in Europe the Soviets had defeated the German Sixth Army and were heading west. Hitler's shifting resources to the Russian front also made it possible for the Allies to defeat Axis forces in North Africa. If it wasn't for American involvement in the war the Iron Curtain would have been on Europe's Atlantic coast instead of Eastern Europe.

So please explain how "my cult" led to Iran wanting to blow Israel off the face of the earth.
Or North Korea threatening us with their nuclear power. Or Russia invading Ukraine - a peaceful people who want to preserve democracy. Or terrorists blowing up people all over the world and burning Christian children in their beds while they slept. Or China supporting Russia and Iran. Or Syria unleashing WMDs on innocents.
You live in a fairy tale when the ogres live in the real world.
Okay Carol, let's start with Iran. It was a Republican president Dwight D Eisenhower who used the CIA to overthrow the democratically elected president of Iran and install the Shah who was every bit the repressive dictator that Saddam Hussein was. The Shah used his secret police, the Savak, to repress moderate opposition leaving only radical Islamists standing when he was overthrown.
Under whose watch did North Korea make the biggest gains in their nuclear weaponry? That would be your hero George W Bush.
Under whose watch did Putin invade the Republic of Georgia with little consequence? Again, that would be George W Bush.
Whose actions in the Middle East were the best recruiting tool Islamist terrorists could hope for? Again, that would be George W. Bush. By the way Carol, these terrorists mostly target other Muslims.

If you people are going to try to blame Democrats starting in 2007, then certainly you can list the legislation Congress passed in the firt 9 months of 2007 that created the worst recession in 80 years.

Rand Paul: Some In GOP Stuck In Cold War Mentality, Want To ‘Tweak’ Russia Over Ukraine
http://www.randpaulreview.com/2014/02/rand-pa...
oh, and, btw......
Five Ways Reagan Nostalgia Misleads Conservatives
3. Triumphalism in foreign affairs.
“We win, they lose.”“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Conservatives, especially neoconservatives, are fond of employing those Cold War Reagan catchphrases in the service of confrontation and conflict abroad.
Along with generic appeals to military power, these lines can go a long way toward dressing up hawkishness as a “neo-Reaganite foreign policy.” Negotiations with Iran? We win, they lose. War isn’t going well? Tough, we win, they lose.
Fortunately, Reagan didn’t actually govern like that. His moralistic rhetoric was important and he was a sincere anti-communist, but he also disliked war and understood the limits of force. He built up the armed forces but also engaged in diplomacy with the Soviets. He kept military interventions small and abandoned them when they threatened to become quagmires.
Many of Reagan’s successors try to reduce him to Dirty Harry, in much the same way liberals once misunderstood him as Ronnie Ray Gun.(As it turns out, Clint Eastwood’s conservatism isn’t that hawkish either.) Even the “Evil Empire” speech was more nuanced than some Republicans remember it, containing admissions (“Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal”) that would be considered an “apology tour” if delivered by Barack Obama.
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...
We'rre sorry Ronald Reagan kicked the shit out of your side to end the Cold War.
By the way, "the 80s called and they want their foreign policy back." Who said that?

Pinellas County house special election

Jolly 48%

Sink 47%

Overby 5%

The R talking heads see it as a referendum on ObamaCare overlooking that Pinellas is a solid R county and that Overby's votes came from the Sink column. Overby ran a nifty little campaign offering an option to the pure nastiness shown by the two national parties.

... should I shove that back up your ass again.... hmmmmmm.
Why not.

The Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effectove oversight of their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from which we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.
The Democrats didn't oppose the war in Iraq until there was nothing left for the Republicans to give them.

Bush kicked the shit out of the Islamist jihad in Iraq and turned over a functioning democracy in Iraq to Obama. Today, Al Qaeda controls the entire western half of Iraq.
Bush kicked the shit out of the Taliban and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and had them holed up in caves in the mountainous tribal region on the Afghan-Pakistan border when Obama took office. Today, the Taliban and Al Qaeda are bombing every village and city in Afghanistan.

Here's an interesting question, dupe.

Since the surge in Afghanistan was for the purpose of mopping up the Taliban and Al Qaeda holed up in the caves on the Afghan-Pakistan border, and Obama ordered all combat against the Taliban and Al Qaeda cease and all US forces to retreat to the population centers when he took office, why did he send any troops at all to Afghanistan?
