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

"Arnold" had some good ideas when he was elected, unfortunately the democrats in the state didn't even want to consider any of them. Then he folded and went with the "If you can't beat the, join them" strategy.

WHy does what the R's insist on matter at all? they weren't included in the debate remember....behind door deals!!!! Obamacare was pushed through under a Dem president, a dem congress, and a dem house....R's didn't matter and it's a FACT that tort reform could have been included and the cap the r's want totally ignored, it still would have been forced through just like it was. As thick as the Obamacare novel is you can't tell me they couldn't have addressed the main concern for doctors when it comes to cost that they charge us for. Your excuse for the lack of tort reform is total bs. You really need to get honest and stop with the crap of just thinking that if it was done under Obama it must be right, no mistakes no misjudgements, no problem. And yet if it was done under a R president you don't like....it's ALL wrong. You don't think with reason, logic, facts, or figures. You think party. How very shallow of you.
Not the locked out lie. Republican leadership cracked down on any Republican seeming to work with Democrats.

The bill was debated for nearly a year.

There are 140 Republican amendments in the healthcare bill. Most of the ideas used to be Republican ideas.

My tort reform analysis is spot on. There has been nothing done because Republicans always demand caps. Which ruins against your big government rap that you whine about here constantly.

But hey, if the Republicans were truly interested in reforming healthcare, they should have done it under Bush or worked with Clinton.

The fact is Republicans had plenty of opportunity after they blocked Hillarycare & did NOTHING. NOTHING.

So here you are, mad at Democrats when you should be mad at your own failed party.

Data shows Big Bird was the most rewatched moment of debate......
It’s looking more and more like President Obama’s performance may not have been such a bad strategy after all. I’m not even entirely sure if you can call Romney’s win a win anymore if shamelessly lying through your teeth and Big Bird are Romney's most memorable takeaways from the debate.

Obama's performance now was a "strategy"? I guess the Jets are using that same strategy. Hahahahaha

Actually, Obama was the one looking into the camera. I think he forgot it was a debate. Personally, i think he hung out with the chum gang before the debate, what do you think?

"The Wall Street Journal puts it bluntly: ObamaCare will be paid for with 'huge tax increases.' How huge? According to Jeffrey H. Anderson, Ph.D, Senior Fellow of Health Care Studies at the Pacific Research Institute, one ObamaCare proposal would "raise taxes by $2.3 trillion" over the next two decades. Yes, trillion."
I have news.

The government can't so anything without taking money from someone or some entity.

Yes, Obamacare is paid for.

Too bad the Republicans don't understand that concept.

Exchanging a few white faces in city halls, legislatures and the White House for black and brown ones isn't really such a big deal.

What passes for black political power nowadays isn't such a big deal to me because poverty rates are as high now as when a bygone Democratic president declared a war on poverty --- a project that failed because he spent all the money in a colonial war that killed millions in Vietnam, and climbing still higher. Prolonging the careers of black Democrats like Atlanta's Kasim Reed, Newark's Corey Booker, Philly's Mike Nutter or even of congressmen John Lewis and Jim Clyburn as they front for gentrifiers, charter schools, and power companies that build new nukes in the middle of poor black towns being poisoned by old ones is just not anything I want to do with my voice.

I can see why all the big preachers want black folks to vote Democratic. Most of them are part of, or aspiring parts of the black political class, the black misleadership class themselves. Many depend on so-called “faith based” funding to keep their ministries alive. The black church has been captured, and is a kind of “state religion” of the black political class, divorced from the lives of the class of black people who provide over 40% of the nation's prisoners.

Yep, you really gave a flying fk about your country then.
Bush isn't running. Here's a shock for ya! Whole NEW election today. Please try and keep up by noticing what damage OBAMA has done to the country. Maybe you can choose dem again when it won't be "more of the same" as a campaign strategy.

Younger people sometimes ask me what to do. After telling them not to respect their elders all that much --- we didn't respect them that much 45 years ago either --- the main thing I tell them is that movement leaders and participants back in the day had visions and horizons longer than the next election cycle or the one after that. They were prepared to fight whether they had allies in city hall, the legislature or the courts or not. Unlike today's NAACP and NAN, they developed agendas without the guidance of corporate funders and their recommended professionals.

We've proved we can elect as many Democrats as we want, all the way up the food chain without changing much here at the bottom. I know this well. I gave more than 20 years of my own life to electing better Democrats, helping Democrats run better campaigns, and registering more Democrat voters. I met Barack Obama 20 years ago on one of those gigs in Project VOTE Illinois, where he was state director and I was one of three field organizers who signed up 130,000 new voters and flogged them out to the polls that year. We elected Harold Washington, and a lot of state legislators and a few Congressional reps. The Democratic party will still let you work for it, but once in office, big money calls the shots. It's time to leave that house and build a new one.

It's an uncomfortable truth: the present US political system is largely people-proof and democracy-proof. The time and treasure we've sunk into supporting Democrats the last seventy years is gone. It's a horse we raised and watered and fed that somebody else has ridden off and it won't be back.
