Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Then Obama was elected & suddenly the Tea Party forms & has a fit about the effects of the Bush recession.
In other words, a bunch of dumbasses who are sofa king stupid that they blame the wrong party while continuing to supporting those who supported the disaster of the Bush presidency.

Glenn Beck:'Liberals, You Were Right' About Iraq War
There are many things you'd never expect Glenn Beck to say: "Barack Obama is a great president," "the Affordable Care Act was a huge success," "amnesty for all undocumented immigrants!"
But "liberals, you were right" tops them all. And yet:
"From the beginning, most people on the left were against going into Iraq. I wasn’t.... Liberals, you were right. We shouldn’t have."
Beck made this surprising declaration on his radio show on Tuesday while discussing the widening rift between Republicans and Democrats. He urged both parties to come together to oppose another war in Iraq.
"Not one more life. Not one more life. Not one more dollar, not one more airplane, not one more bullet, not one more Marine, not one more arm or leg or eye. Not one more," he said. "This must end now. Now can't we come together on that?"

Benghazi Suspect Said He Was Moved To Take Revenge For American-Made Video
Benghazi attack suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala, who was captured by U.S. forces on Sunday, told people the move against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was intended as revenge for an American-made online video that was seen as an attack to Islam, according to the New York Times.
The New York Times reported Tuesday:
What he did in the period just before the attack has remained unclear. But Mr. Abu Khattala told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video.
An earlier demonstration venting anger over the video outside the American Embassy in Cairo had culminated in a breach of its walls, and it dominated Arab news coverage. Mr. Abu Khattala told both fellow Islamist fighters and others that the attack in Benghazi was retaliation for the same insulting video, according to people who heard him.
In an interview days after the attack, he pointedly declined to say whether he believed an offense such as the anti-Islamic video might indeed warrant the destruction of the diplomatic mission or the killing of the ambassador.“From a religious point of view, it is hard to say whether it is good or bad,” he said.
The day after the September attack, the New York Times' David Kirkpatrick reported fighters involved in the effort were moved "by anger over a 14-minute, American-made video that depicted the Prophet Muhammad, Islam’s founder, as a villainous, homosexual and child-molesting buffoon." The Times did have a reporter -- not Kirkpatrick -- on the ground that night.
The publication stood by that reporting in October 2012 and again in December 2013, and were subsequently attacked by conservatives.
White House emails made public in April 2014 supported reports that the Obama administration wanted Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, to “underscore these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.” In September 2012, Rice said the attack was not premeditated.

We are out of the recession? Are you sure? Lets take a look;
- Fewer Americans with a job, the participation percentage is at a 50 year low
- Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax
- More American's requiring food stamps to eat
- Negative GDP growth 1st quarter 2014
- Average household income down over $4000 per year

Okay, let's take your points one at a time.
Yes our work force is shrinking. We have an aging population and the "baby boomer" generation is retiring. This isn't necessarily a bad thing since labor like any other commodity is subject to the economic rules of supply and demand. As supply retracts labor becomes more valuable. That's why fat cats like those on the Business Round Table want to raise the retirement age. They want to put off the inevitable that they're going to actually have to compete for workers by offering better wages and benefits. Younger people aren't going directly into the workforce after high school either, opting for additional education and training that's needed in a more complex work environment.
A sign of recession? No.
The vast majority of households that don't pay federal income taxes are either elderly or paying payroll taxes. 60 percent of those who don't pay income tax are still working and paying taxes for Social Security and Medicare. Their tax liability is just too low to qualify for the income tax. Another 22 percent of non-payers are retirees. Solution: raise the minimum wage and keep it indexed to inflation. Also the number of people who don't pay federal income taxes tends to jump every time there's a big tax cut bill, as after the 1986 tax reform or the 2001 Bush tax cuts. There's a reason why George W. Bush was boasting, in 2004, about moving 5 million taxpayers "off the rolls."
76% of SNAP households included a child, an elderly person, or a disabled person. These vulnerable households receive 83% of all SNAP benefits. Another group is workers on minimum wage jobs who need to use public assistance like SNAP benefits to make ends meet. Solution; raise the minimum wage.
Negative growth in one quarter due to unusually harsh weather conditions isn't a trend moron.
The fall in median income is also due to an aging population. With 10,000 Boomers hitting age 65 each and every day, the proportion of households consisting of retirees is increasing dramatically - and that is pulling down median household income. Solution: Once again raising the minimum wage and indexing it to inflation.
None of these are signs of a recession. Corporate profits are at all time highs and the markets are in record territory.
So you can kiss my butt Eed.
You're an idiot; you also have been and always will be!

Bush was stuck with Bin Laden and war because Clinton:

2 - did nothing after the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993
Idiot.
Clinton never had Bin Laden on a "silver platter" you damned liar.
The perpetrators of the first WTC attack are spending the rest of their lives in federal maximum security prisons moron. Clinton did start attacking Al Qaeda training camps after the first attack and Republicans accused him of "wagging the dog".
So what did Bush do when he received the warnings of an imminent attack on US soil?

It was your buddy Bush not Obama. Your ignorance is understandable since you won't see this on FOX:
"It’s true that in December of 2011 we did pull all of our troops out of Iraq. But we didn’t do it because of President Obama’s policies – we did it because of a Status of Forces Agreement (sometimes called SOFA) that was signed while George W. Bush was still president. This agreement, signed by George W. Bush, set deadlines for the end of U.S. combat operations as June 30, 2009 and for all U.S. forces to be pulled out of Iraq by December 30, 2011. So when they say “Obama pulled U.S. forces out of Iraq in 2011 leaving the country to fall into the hands of terrorists,” the reality is he was following an agreement that George W. Bush had already signed well before he became president."

NYT: Captured Suspect Said Benghazi Attack Was Revenge For Anti-Islam Video

Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspect captured by U.S. special forces on Tuesday for his role in the 2012 Benghazi attack, reportedly said he was motivated in part by the anti-Islam online video made in America, according to the New York Times.

"What he did in the period just before the attack has remained unclear. But Mr. Abu Khattala told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video," Times reporter David Kirkpatrick wrote in a story on Khattala on Tuesday.

Immediately following the attack, Khattala declined to say whether the video had anything to do with his role in the Benghazi attack, according to the Times.

The New York Times reported in December that the attack was fueled in part by the anti-Islam video, but did not link Khattala to the video in that investigation.

The scandal surrounding the Obama administration's response to Benghazi was centered on whether or not the attack was related to protests surrounding the video.
