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

So, um, electron, old chap, does any of that sound like a man who wishes to return to the good old days of reading, writing, and rithmetic? Seems as if your somewhat cavalier use of the Irishman's words was taken out of context from a play, whereas, his REAL feelings belie a deeply subversive playful nature making the worst sort of fun of you lot and your back to basics mentality.... Don't feel bad. Electric, old fellow, most intellectuals are progressive in their thinking.. and for obvious reasons.

Now, about your bill for the fiasco of the two lost wars... Your portion comes to some $50,000. Now pay up, scum...

¨Democrats and their media friends have been hyperventilating over an NRCC fundraising letter that mentioned the Benghazi investigation, calling it 'disgusting' and claiming it undermines the legitimacy of the investigation.

In a dynamite speech on the House floor Congressman Tom Cotton takes after the hypocrisy of the Democrats, dropping the boom on them, reminding them of their behavior respecting Iraq.

*When I was leading troops in Iraq in 2006, men and women who were being shot at and blown up by al Qaeda, where was the outrage as they fundraised endlessly off the Iraq war?

*Where was the outrage as they viciously attacked our commanders?

*Where was the outrage when they said soldiers were war criminals?

*Where was the outrage when they said the war was lost?

*Where was the outrage when they said only high school dropouts join the Army?

Forgive me if I don’t join my democratic colleagues in their fake outrage. Four Americans lost their lives that night in Benghazi. They deserve justice and the American people deserve the truth.

One other lesson I learned in the Army is that we leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.¨

“Those who talk most about the blessings of marriage and the constancy of its vows are the very people who declare that if the chain were broken and the prisoners left free to choose, the whole social fabric would fly asunder. You cannot have the argument both ways. If the prisoner is happy, why lock him in? If he is not, why pretend that he is?”

Let's see the survey.

Funny how you like to say stuff, regardless of factual basis.

We know you just make shit up.

Like you did for weeks about Cliven Bundy.

Why aren't you still defending the racist??

Funny how you make an ass out of yourself with Bundy and Robertson, then when their true nature is revealed, you run off like the idiot you are.

You can't "discredit" the cloture votes.
You don't get to make the rules.

"Since 2007, there have been 527 cloture motions that have been filed, according to Senate statistics. This is apparently where Obama got his figure. But this tells only part of the story as many of those cloture motions were simply dropped, never actually voted on, or “vitiated” in the senatorial nomenclature.

Indeed, when you go through the numbers, there have just been 133 successful filibusters—meaning a final vote could not take place–since 2007.

But, even if you accept the way Senate Democrats like the frame the issue, the president is still wrong. He referred to “legislation”—and most of these cloture motions concerned judicial and executive branch nominations. In the 113th Congress, for instance, 83 of the 136 cloture motions so far have concerned nominations, not legislation.

Even then, while Obama referred to “500 pieces of legislation,” the same bill can be subject to as many as three cloture motions, further inflating the numbers. For instance, there may be cloture to get on the bill, cloture on the substitute bill (if lawmakers are simply using an unrelated bill as a vehicle for passage), and cloture on the underlying bill. All of these votes might take place on the same day, but it creates the illusion of the same bill being “filibustered” three times. It certainly does not mean there were three pieces of legislation. So far in the 113th Congress, 36 pieces of legislation were subject to a cloture motion—and 12 were actually filibustered. That’s a far cry from the 136 that Obama is counting in order to tally up 500."

Ok, don't worry about it. I'll go ahead and leave them behind because, for all your pathetic hand-wringing, 4 people do not even constitute a classified ad let alone a front page story. Who cares who they were? They were hired hands of the israelis, nobody's going to miss them... they got what they deserved...

You have 'brain farts' 24/7.

Your entire posting history is comprised of brain farts and saying things you have to walk away from when the lies are proven.

I figure your hubbee has about 6 months left. Enjoy the time with him.

The issue is Hillary --despite DOJ, CIA and FBI encouraging her to include Boko Haram on the terrorist list--she refused.
