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

Iraq did not have AlQuaeda there before we invaded their country and created a hotbed of terrorism. The city of Mosul has been taken by an AlQuaeda group today. If those men, along with all the others held at Gitmo were truly that dangerous; I don't understand why they weren't just killed somewhere instead of bringing them here and holding them for years without charging them. There is no possible way to rid the world of international terrorism completely. I think that our presence in those countries is a detriment; there are other ways to thwart terrorist plots by the use of law enforcement and covert CIA operations and the Drone program. Limiting their ability to obtain arms etc. However, as long as people have money to buy arms; someone will sell it to them. Drug sales fuel arms purchases. Who are the majority of drug buyers? Americans. Bush gave the Taliban $400 million to eradicate the poppy fields; well, the production of heroin as increased by something like 160%! Europe, Russia, and the US are experiencing an increase in street heroin the likes of which we have not seen since the 70's.
If you cannot comprehend that the actions of the US and it's allies in the Middle East has increased terrorism, then you are naïve. We need to get out of there completely. Period.
Come what may. We as a nation cannot hold people forever without charging them. There has to be an end.
We provided support, weapons and training to the Afghanis when Russia invaded their country. The Taliban grew out of that group of Afghanis.

We got rid of Saddam and his thugs in Kuwait when Iraq invaded their country as well.

So I have no trouble comprehending our actions in the Middle East. We've done far more good than bad.

Perhaps if the Middle East at least made an effort to catch up to the 21st century, it might help.

Ted Cruz's Wish Is Finally Granted: He Is No Longer Canadian
""After many, many months of promising to renounce his Canadian citizenship, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has finally achieved that goal.
Cruz's Canadian citizenship was officially terminated in May, according to the Dallas Morning News. The senator was notified by mail of the renunciation a few days ago.
“He’s pleased to receive the notification and glad to have this process finalized,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told the paper.
Cruz released his birth certificate to the Dallas Morning News last August to quell speculation that he was a Canadian citizen, not an American. His plan backfired when the paper pointed out that Cruz's birth in Calgary, Alberta to an American mother likely made him a dual citizen.""
----------
So he's no longer Canadian?? Well, he sure isn't American, either.
Another Obama birth?

None. However, in the United States, babies are 50 percent more likely to die on the same day they were born than in all of the other industrialized countries combined because Republicans don't believe that that poor and minority women deserve pre-natal care. Using your logic, that would make Republicans responsible for the deaths of nearly 11,300 babies per day.
your statistics are grossly inflated.......

Young lady you should think before you post. All your liberal hero's, biden, hilaroius, pelousy, kerry, noboma, chuckie, hirless either voted for or supported the action in Iraq. They had the same information that Bush had. I can hardly wait, a looney liberal response will be coming from you, Bush lied. Do your thing, be a troll, spew the company lie.

Obama left Iraq to its own defenses and will soon do the same in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
What do you think is going to happen? The enemy didn't declare this war over. Only Obama.
So with your plan,, another 4000 Soldiers dead because of the lie of WMD in Iraq?

Palling Around With Domestic Terrorists
Among their numerous Facebook photos is this one which shows Jerad Miller, one of the two shooters, posing with former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack.
When Fox News was in the middle of relentlessly promoting the Cliven Bundy militia, they had Richard Mack on the air when he said this:
“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
Between announcing their plans to overthrow the government, overthrow President Obama, take “their country back,” holding rallies in Washington to overthrow the government, and threatening to enact “Second Amendment remedies,” one can hardly differentiate between empty rhetoric posted by right wing extremists and real, actual threats.
The shear scope and amount of violent, anti-government rhetoric has reached a point where it would take an overwhelming amount of resources to sort fact from fiction.
http://bobcesca.thedailybanter.com/blog-archi...
still cute?
Jerad Miller called a recorded help line of Indiana's motor vehicles bureau after he was pulled over in Nevada and found to have a suspended license from the state he had recently left. At the end of the call, Miller said, "If they come to arrest me for noncompliance or whatever, I'm just going to start shooting people," according to agency spokeswoman Danielle Dean.

This guy had it in for cops for some reason.

Be careful about labeling crazy people to politics and ideologies.

Remember Bill Ayres was an extremist and tried to kill cops too. He became Obama's bud.

So you don't want to go there - in other words.

Leaving residual troops past the deadline was always on the table and part of the agreement between the U.S. and Iraq.
Qasim Abed, a former governor of Anbar province, expressed his frustration at the ongoing fighting in Iraq saying it is taking longer than it should to expel al-Qaeda militants who have seized parts of Fallujah and Ramadi in some of the worst fighting since American forces withdrew from Iraq in 2011.
Abed said he longs for a U.S. presence because American forces are viewed as independent and efficient fighters.
"If American troops were available this would be over in 24 hours," he said.
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014...
So whether or not Obama should have put up a bigger fight to keep residual troops there doesn't matter anymore. Iraqis are on their own and if the enemy wins, not only do the Iraqis lose but so does the U.S. and all the blood and treasure that was sacrificed.
Iraq is on it's own because they wanted it that way. told us to get the hell out.

but you know that already.

Again the sarcasm. You can't praise FDR and the Democrats for implementing SS and then blame me for reaping the benefits.
We will never know the alternative of not having FDR's New Deal or the Democrats' big government nanny state.
There would have been alternatives. Perhaps, much better ones.
Libertarians seem to always have government jobs of benefits :-)

Obama’s conservative critics want to argue that releasing or transferring detainees from Guantanamo is dangerous, how do they explain why no one said a word during the Bush/Cheney era. In fact, the Bush/Cheney administration released or transferred 532 detainees from the prison at Guantanamo
Think of inedible fish getting caught in a huge net of tuna fishermen.

Bush/Cheney threw back the ones who weren't dangerous but just got caught in the net.

Does that help clarify it for you?

You have no idea how many times Ayres and Obama met. They were actually colleagues at one point.

So let's not blame libertarians or Ron Paul for this crazy person's hatred of policemen either.

Pelosi Reduced To Blithering Incoherence When A Teenager Asks Her About The NSA Scandal

A teenager, who was granted an audience [with] House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, decided to ask her about the NSA scandal. Her answer is really a marvelous example of someone who 1) has no clue and 2) was caught off guard.

The teen was clearly asking the question from a libertarian standpoint, as his premise made it clear that he is no fan of some of the NSA’s more infamous activities.

“Why do you support the NSA’s illegal and ubiquitous data collection?” he asked.

“Well I… I… do not &#8722; I have questions about the metadata collection that they were, uh, collecting, unless they had a reason to do so,” she replied.

That clears everything up, doesn’t it?

In the end, she must have realized how bad it was going for her so she resorted to a favorite tactic. She blamed Bush.

Actually, that just made her look a lot worse.

Have a look at the video below.

The Cloward–Piven Strategy and Barack Hussein Obama

¨Overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of 'a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.'¨

Overload with, oh I don't know, say thousands of helpless refugees and then family members coming in droves to join them? How much of a push does our fragile system need to tip it past the point of no return?
