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

You base your esteemed opinion (just kidding) that the war in Iraq was the USA coalition vs Iraq which is a false premise. We are NOT fighting the country of Iraq we are fighting terrorism the war on terrorism is not over!
Wrong on the exit strategy Sherlock. Any military incursion requires as part of the planning a exit strategy....ask any West Point Cadet.
I had a family member in Iraq for 9 years Sherlock the same person I'm married to for the last 25 years.
Obama's exit strategy is to run away, play golf, go to fundraisers, and blame Bush.....

He wanted political cronies and patsies. He has ordered the revision of training manuals to include explanations why whites have been given special opportunities in society compared to other races or ethnicities.

The only purpose of our military is to protect our country and our country's interest. Something Obama has utterly failed doing. And yes as they conduct operations they can kill and will definitely break things that's the nature of war.

1. Correct no one is disputing that fact.

2. No. It rooted Al Qaeda out of strongholds in Iraq which was the purpose of fighting terrorism.

3. Keeping a contingency group to guide Iraqi military was a sound exit strategy. Obama only wanted to get out he didn't care what the consequences of his actions were and we'll deal with that bad decision.

4. Lefties are widely known for their inability to use critical thinking skills in real life scenarios.

In The Spirit Of Fatherís Day, Here Are 5 Useful Lessons That Can Teach Kids To Not Be Like Obama

By Justen Charters 36 mins ago

Raising a child in Barack Obamaís America can be a struggle for those who are concerned about the way he runs the country. If there ever was a blueprint on how to not properly teach principles to kids, it could be found in the presidentís broken promises and unwise policies.
So in the spirit of Fatherís Day, here are 5 ways you can teach your kids to be productive, responsible citizens.

1. Encourage their independence:

When your child wants to show you their block tower they spent hours on, do not go citing the country that manufactured the blocks and tell them ďyou didnít build that.Ē

2. Teach them to keep their word:

You shouldnít lie at all, especially to Congress. More specifically, you shouldnít lie when youíre dealing with the release of five crazed Taliban leaders who canít wait to put the training wheels back on their newest assembly line of Jihad recruits.

3. Teach them to be loyal to their friends:

When you have a pledge of building a missile defense shield to a country like Poland that is worried about Russian aggression, honor it. Because ignoring your promise and acting like you donít care just may empower the president of Russia to invade a sovereign nation.

4. Teach them what Martin Luther King Jr.ís ďI Have A DreamĒ speech is really about:

There is no such thing as white privilege. Your privilege is based on earning your success. Dr. King said he believed in people being judged based on the content of their character, not how many times they used the race card.

5. Teach them to take responsibility for their actions:

Letís face it, all kids will make some bad choices, and when they do, they need to be held accountable. So when they hit their sibling, break something expensive or increase the national debt by over 6 trillion dollars, they canít blame Bush. Unless of course you named your son or daughter after the 43th President - then thatís a different story.
Remember, just point to Obama next time youíre trying to teach a child how not to act.

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN)-- An al Qaeda video obtained by CNN shows Osama bin Laden declaring war against Bill Clinton, the United States and the West.

The tape of a May 26, 1998, news conference is among 64 obtained in Afghanistan from a source, who said the tapes were found in an Afghan house where bin Laden had stayed, OBL declaring war against the US, jihad in Muslim, a holy war waged by Muslims against Bill Clinton and America's infidels.

Benghazi: Ambassador Stevens' made some very poor decisions and it cost him his life and the life of his fellow Americans.
IRS: You ignore the FACTS.
Fast and Furious was operated under the umbrella of Bush's Operation Wide Receiver.
"After Operation Wide Receiver was ended, several attorneys at the Phoenix USAO who reviewed the Wide Receiver cases for prosecution found the cases had been so poorly managed that they were reluctant to bring any of them to trial.
At the time, under the Bush administration Department of Justice (DOJ), no arrests or indictments were made. After President Barack Obama took office in 2009, the DOJ reviewed Wide Receiver and found that guns had been allowed into the hands of suspected gun traffickers. Indictments began in 2010, over three years after Wide Receiver concluded. As of October 4, 2011, nine people had been charged with making false statements in acquisition of firearms and illicit transfer, shipment or delivery of firearms. As of November, charges against one defendant had been dropped; five of them had pled guilty, and one had been sentenced to one year and one day in prison. Two of them remained fugitives."
Again, a case of Democrats left to clean up Republican messes.

It's easy to call it a lie, now. At the time, when everyone was reading the same intel, the call to war was virtually unanimous and had been for years - distasteful as that may be.
We'll see if Obama has balls. The optimistically re-energized Islamists are betting he doesn't.
"At the time" people believed the lie. You can't hold members of congress responsible for decisions based on lies. They trustedt Bush to do the right thing and do it the right way. It was a mistake with major consequences.

LIE: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." -- President Bush, Jan.28, 2003, in the State of the Union address.

LIE : "We believe [Saddam] has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons." -- Vice President Cheney on March 16, 2003 on "Meet the Press."

LIE : "[The CIA possesses] solid reporting of senior-level contacts between Iraq and al-Qaeda going back a decade." -- CIA Director George Tenet in a written statement released Oct. 7, 2002 and echoed in that evening's speech by President Bush.

LIE : "We've learned that Iraq has trained al-Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases ... Alliance with terrorists could allow the Iraqi regime to attack America without leaving any fingerprints." -- President Bush, Oct. 7 .

LIE : "We have also discovered through intelligence that Iraq has a growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to disperse chemical or biological weapons across broad areas. We are concerned that Iraq is exploring ways of using these UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles] for missions targeting the United States." -- President Bush, Oct. 7.

LIE: "We have seen intelligence over many months that they have chemical and biological weapons, and that they have dispersed them and that they're weaponized and that, in one case at least, the command and control arrangements have been established." -- President Bush, Feb. 8, 2003, in a national radio address.

LIE : "Our conservative estimate is that Iraq today has a stockpile of between 100 and 500 tons of chemical weapons agent. That is enough to fill 16,000 battlefield rockets." -- Secretary of State Colin Powell, Feb. 5 2003, in remarks to the UN Security Council.

LIE : "We know where [Iraq's WMD] are. They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south, and north somewhat." -- Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, March 30, 2003, in statements to the press.

LIE #10: "Yes, we found a biological laboratory in Iraq which the UN prohibited." -- President Bush in remarks in Poland, published internationally June 1, 2003.(the trailers were actually exactly what Iraq said they were; facilities to fill weather balloons, sold to them by the British themselves.)

The Azzhole who bailed out GM should be recalled instead.
