Have you ever considered it is the parents responsibility to feed their kids?
Have you ever considered that if the unmarried women with children they can not afford to feed had thought before they spread their legs?

Who has a complex mind and contemplates his actions before making them?
Certainly not Obama. You're not talking about Obama, I hope.
He's too overwhelmed to know which toilet paper to use without causing another scandal.
He only contemplates which fundraiser to attend and which club to use to sink his ball.
He's still struggling with an identity crisis, I believe, that he admitted having while growing up. Must give you the illusion of a superior intellect.
We're dealing with a high school class president mentality here, Lily. Think of a black Biff from "Back to the Future" sitting in the White House. I'm so sorry you're so disillusioned.
Nothing complex or superior to see here. Just a community organizing political activist who loves the perks of being the president - just not the job. He's in over his head and knows it.
This 'high school class' president is sure an upgrade from that elementary school bushie bully son.

At least we're headed in the 'right'... er...'correct' direction!

Well gee whiz son.

The Seattle Supersonics moved to Oklahoma City and changed their name.

New Orleans Hornets did the same.

Houston Oils also made the change.

So really... it's a non issue on your 'legacy' son!

"I haven't seen this diaried here yet, but in an unprecedented outbreak of journalism, Fox News' Megyn Kelly rips into Dick Cheney for his track record over Iraq. This is covered in Raw Story., and the video is below.

Apparently invited to Fox to pimp their new PAC, Megan starts the interview by quoting Paul Waldeman from WAPO

“There is not a single person in America — not Bill Kristol, not Paul Wolfowitz, not Don Rumsfeld, no pundit, not even President Bush himself — who has been more wrong and more shamelessly dishonest on the topic of Iraq than Dick Cheney.”

and asks Cheney for his comments.

After a 2 minute rambling, revisionist defense of himself, Kelly comes back with - unprecedented - a hard hitting follow up.

Quoting from the Cheney’s Wall Street Journal op-ed, Kelly read,“Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” before adding,“Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir.”

She then proceeds to list some of his most blatant lies - http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/06/19/1308...

President Barack Obama presented the Medal of Honor Thursday to a veteran who took the blow from a grenade to protect a fellow Marine in Afghanistan back in 2010, sustaining major wounds, including the loss of his right eye.

"Retired Cpl. William "Kyle" Carpenter received the medal during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House. He's the eighth living recipient to be chosen for the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"Kyle doesn't hide his scars. He's proud of them and the service they represent," Obama said.

Carpenter, now 24, was wounded Nov. 21, 2010, while guarding a patrol base in a small village in Helmand province." http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/06/19/obama-pr...

NOTICE the (HUGE!!) DIFFERENCE in presentations DUH A Vey-

Good evening. Tonight in Iraq, the Armed Forces of the United States are engaged in a struggle that will determine the direction of the global war on terror — and our safety here at home. The new strategy I outline tonight will change America's course in Iraq, and help us succeed in the fight against terror.

When I addressed you just over a year ago, nearly 12 million Iraqis had cast their ballots for a unified and democratic nation. The elections of 2005 were a stunning achievement. We thought that these elections would bring the Iraqis together — and that as we trained Iraqi security forces, we could accomplish our mission with fewer American troops.

But in 2006, the opposite happened. The violence in Iraq — particularly in Baghdad — overwhelmed the political gains the Iraqis had made. Al Qaeda terrorists and Sunni insurgents recognized the mortal danger that Iraq's elections posed for their cause, and they responded with outrageous acts of murder aimed at innocent Iraqis. They blew up one of the holiest shrines in Shia Islam — the Golden Mosque of Samarra — in a calculated effort to provoke Iraq's Shia population to retaliate. Their strategy worked. Radical Shia elements, some supported by Iran, formed death squads. And the result was a vicious cycle of sectarian violence that continues today.
The situation in Iraq is unacceptable to the American people — and it is unacceptable to me. Our troops in Iraq have fought bravely. They have done everything we have asked them to do. Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility rests with me.......
(GW Bush's Iraq Speech-1/2007)

From todays "remarks"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good afternoon, everybody. "I" just met with "my" national security team to discuss the situation in Iraq. We’ve been meeting regularly to review the situation since ISIL, a terrorist organization that operates in Iraq and Syria, made advances inside of Iraq. "As I said" last week, ISIL poses a threat to the Iraqi people, to the region and to U.S. interests. So today "I" wanted to provide you an update on how we’re responding to the situation.

First, we are working to secure our embassy and personnel operating inside of Iraq. "As president", I have no greater priority than the safety of our men and women serving overseas. So I’ve taken some steps to relocate some of our embassy personnel, and we’ve sent reinforcements to better secure our facilities.

Second, " at my direction" we have significantly increased our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets so that we’ve got a better picture of what’s taking place inside of Iraq, and this will give us a greater understanding of what ISIL is doing, where it’s located and how we might support efforts to counter this threat.....

American forces will not be returning to combat in Iraq, but we will help Iraqis as they take the fight to terrorists who threaten the Iraqi people, the region and American interests as well...

Notice the difference...(I..I..I...me..me .. my...) and see that word "responsibility"..

What You Are Not Being Told About the Invasion of America

June 19, 2014

The Daily Caller reports,“a leaked estimate by a top official in the Department of Homeland Security says the 12-month inflow will reach 90,000 by October, and then grow by another 142,000 in the next 12 months before October 2015.” That’s over 230,000, nearly a quarter million that the Democrats hope to dump on US taxpayers. Soon, this number will grown by millions.

A Phoenix TV station reported June 6, DHS program that buses immigrants to AZ, no signs of stopping. The story follows the script of “humanitarian crisis” rather than a created crisis, but again, make no mistake about it, this administration is following script to undermine this country.

So all you're saying is accountability in government is out the window as long as it's a cool black guy in office...(without endorsing McCain or Cruz, mind you).
Sounds a bit racist to me.
There's a lot of cool black guys who would be fantastic presidents. Just not this one.
Do you judge a man by the content of his character or the color of his skin? Because doing the former was MLK's dream. If you remember.
Is there anything this cool black president could do that would make you reconsider his ability to lead this country?
Someone on here could come up with a long list why you should, pretty sure.
Here's one: If the IRS targeted and harassed a disproportionate number of liberal groups under a McCain or Cruz presidency and lost all the emails during that same time period - two years' worth - would you be cool with that?
It would help me figure out if you see only the color of a man's skin who has a corrupt character or if you're just confused by lies and deception on the part of a corrupt black man.
Thanks so much.
People like Ghost have a certain redeeming value in that when they say to turn Left, we know immediately to turn Right - and vice versa.

It does come in handy but only if you understand you are dealing with a jerk.

Hillary probably advised him in all of this. Except the fellatio from Monica. He acted alone on that one.
