As usual you don't have a clue. You keep saying Obama is not qualified, compare the Two and explain how Bush has more experience and was more qualified than Obama.
You are kidding, right. Forget all the "present" votes Obama made that left his constituents without a voice and forget that those same constituents and the rest of the voters of Illinois only had 1/2 the representation in the Senate they should have had after Obama starting running for president after LESS THAN TWO YEARS on the "national stage." The man was never responsible for ANYTHING - not for making payrolls, not for running a business. And if you don't think Bush was "qualified" - I'm sure you feel the same way about Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, too - right.

Pretty good op-ed here:

http://politix.topix.com/story/11668-the-terr...

"Republicans in America suffer a crippling anxiety. It's the terrible fear of corporations paying poor workers too much.
The GOP is so afraid that the nation's lowest wage earners will get a raise that Republican politicians across the country are working overtime to outlaw wages above $7.25 an hour for these workers.
They're passing legislation forbidding towns and counties from raising the minimum wage in their jurisdictions. Republicans insist: no pay bump for those raking in $15,080 a year! On the other side, however, there's no amount of pay, perks, private jets, premium health plans and golden parachutes that Republican politicians believe could possibly be too much for a CEO.
That Oracle CEO Larry Ellison took home $78,440,657 last year is completely reasonable in the minds of Republicans. That it would take a minimum wage earner 5,201 years to earn what Larry took out of his company for one 365-day period is, according to Republican-think, a morally correct calculation.
That is why Republicans are working so hard to prevent Walmart and McDonald's workers from earning more money while, at the same time, doing nothing but congratulating Time Warner Cable CEO Rob Marcus for grabbing $79.9 million for six weeks of work.
Republican Mary Fallin, governor of Oklahoma, is among them. She signed a law last week forbidding towns in her state from increasing the minimum wage. Fallin, whose state lays claim to the third highest proportion of minimum wage earners in the country, a percentage that rose from 2011 to 2012, justified denying these workers a few extra pennies an hour by saying that would raise prices.
She and her GOP cohorts haven't fussed at all, however, about the cable bill increases likely to result from Marcus' proposed merger of Time Warner Cable and Comcast, the corporate marriage which would result in that $79.9 million dowry payment to him.
Republican state lawmaker Chris Kapenga of Wisconsin responded like Fallin to a proposal by the Milwaukee County Board to raise the minimum wage for county workers and contractors. Kapenga's legislation would prohibit local governments from doing that - even though two other Wisconsin counties already had. Kapenga's proposal, which would slice the paychecks of hundreds of Wisconsin workers, has not passed. The Democratic-sponsored proposal to raise the rate in Milwaukee to $11.32, the amount necessary for a full-time worker to stave off poverty for a family of four, did pass.
Going Against Public Opinion
Republicans are on the wrong side on this. Seventy-one percent of Americans would vote to raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour if given the chance, Gallup found last year. And it's happening. As Republicans in the House block President Barack Obama's proposal to increase the minimum to $10.10 an hour, states and cities are doing it themselves.
A dozen states and four cities increased their minimum wage rates beginning Jan. 1. Since then, five states and the District of Columbia approved raises. When all of these take effect, half of the states will mandate wages higher than the federal minimum. And, in November, eight more states are expected to offer voters referendums on raising their rates."

con't-

"Greediness
Still, Republicans inveigh against advances for the poorest. They say increasing the minimum wage would hurt businesses. They don't care how much an unreasonably low minimum wage hurts workers. And at the same time, they believe James A. Skinner is worth every penny of the $28 million McDonald's paid him in 2012.
They don't believe that there are a dozen Wharton School MBAs who could take his place tomorrow and, frankly, sell hamburgers just as well for say,$280,000 rather than $28 million. They don't see how his excessive pay might affect dividends to shareholders or the cost of fries. They're blind to the fact that the majority of McDonald's fans are willing to pay a few more cents for a Happy Meal if it means a higher wage for the struggling young mother serving the fast food.
Republicans don't believe in paying a living wage to workers they disrespect, like the home health aides providing loving 24-hour care to the frail grandmas of GOP politicians across this country, like the housekeepers who clean GOP presidential hopefuls' hotel rooms as they campaign across the nation, like the McDonald's workers denied paid sick days who make extraordinary efforts not to cough on the fries that super-sized Republicans stuff in their faces.
Republicans do believe, though, that the $31 million CVS hands CEO Larry J. Merlo has no effect on the pharmacy's prices, that the $26 million Ralph Lauren hands its namesake CEO has no effect on the heart-stopping prices he charges for his foreign sweatshop-sewn clothes, and that the $31 million Estee Lauder grants CEO Fabrizio Freda has no effect on the eye-popping prices Lauder charges for its powder and perfume.
The GOP believes CEOs deserve to pocket in one year what it would take the average worker 331 years of labor to earn - a ratio calculated by the AFL-CIO Executive Paywatch team this year. CEOs are just so important, so special, so irreplaceable, according to the GOP.
They're so much better than the heart surgeon who spends all day every day meticulously saving people's lives. They're 331 times as important as the firemen who rush into a burning home to save a woman's life.
They're 331 time more valuable than the policemen and paramedics who ran toward the sound of an explosion a year ago in Boston to rescue bomb victims. To Republicans, those CEOs are 331 times more precious than the teacher who nurtures the shy child, encourages the faltering student or refuses to abandon the recalcitrant pupil.
Republicans' fear of paying too much is terrible. Not because of GOP angst. No, because it causes underpaid workers to suffer. Because it means Republicans are so enthralled with the 1 percent who write supersized campaign checks that they devalue the contributions of everyday workers to the welfare of America. Because it means Republicans will continue to blockade efforts to resolve the growing income inequality that is rupturing the economy and the social cohesion of this nation."

But, but, but - you mean Democrats accept money from big money donors, but I thought that was the whole "scandal" of the Koch Bros - oh, I forget, Democrats are NOTHING if not hypocrites - silly me.

"For all the complaints about money in politics, it is unusual that a high-profile decision seems to have such a direct connection to one big-time donor. This isn’t sneaking a small but consequential provision into a 1,000-page bill in the dead of night. It is blocking a project in broad daylight that is important to a close ally (Canada), that will instantly create thousands of construction jobs, that will send a signal to Vladimir Putin that we are serious about developing energy resources, and that will have no net effect on global warming (as the latest State Department review established)."

==========
But, but, but - I thought Democrats were the "friends of the working man" - oh, silly me, again.

'The president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America went further than any Republican in denouncing the latest delay. He called it a “gutless move,”“politics at its worst,” and “another low blow to the working men and women of our country.”'
==========
Speaking of the Koch Bros:
"Needless to say, Steyer hasn’t received a fraction of the press coverage of the Koch brothers, whose funding of conservative groups has made them an obsession for the New York Times and other outlets. Steyer isn’t nearly as interesting — he’s just the guy with effective veto power over a major infrastructure project clearly in the national interest."

If you don't believe in the real verifiable SCIENCE that is climate change. Not talking about weather or long & short term weather patterns. If you don't understand climate change, anything you say is suspect, ANYTHING. Look at history, people like you have always existed, he earth is flat comes to mind but the list is long.

Obama can do NOTHING to satisfy people like you. You can not like him, you can hate him, you can call him names, you can disagree with him but you can't make what accomplishments the man has had GO AWAY. That Nobel Prize for Peace really gets you don't it.

If all you look at is his qualifications, Obama is better qualified than Bush and Carter. How you can deny the simple fact of Obama's verifiable credentials tells volumes about the other things you say and think.

A gift for liberals? WRONG! A gift for everyone. OK, I KNOW you HATE this - but I'm going to post some actual facts.
1. Keystone XL Would Not Reduce Foreign Oil Dependency
The oil to be sent through Keystone XL pipeline was never destined for US markets. In its own presentation to investors about the proposed pipeline extension, TransCanada (the company behind Keystone XL) boasted that most if not all of the extracted and refined oil would be exported --- sold in oversees markets where oil fetches a higher price (and thus turns a higher profit for the company).
2. Keystone XL Would Have Increased Domestic Oil Prices
Currently, Canadian oil reserves stored in the Midwest help suppress gas prices in the United States, particularly for farmers in our nation’s heartland.
In its permit application for the pipeline, TransCanada noted that the Keystone XL pipeline would allow the company to drain these reserves and export that fuel as well. According to TransCanada’s own statements, this would raise gas prices in the United States, especially in the Midwest.
3. Keystone XL Overstated Number of Jobs to be Created
In 2008, TransCanada’s original permit application to the State Department said the Keystone XL pipeline would create “a peak workforce of approximately 3,500 to 4,200 construction personnel” in temporary jobs building the pipeline.
By 2011, now facing growing opposition to the pipeline, TransCanada had inflated these numbers (using undisclosed formulas) to 20,000. Supporters of the proposal, backed by big oil, have since trumpeted these trumped up numbers.
4. Current Keystone Pipeline Leaked 12 Times in Last Year
The pipeline that the Obama administration has rejected the permit for would be an extension of a pipeline that has already leaked -- not just once, but 12 times in the last year.
While TransCanada tried to dismiss these leaks as “minor” averaging “just five to 10 gallons of oil” each, the leak on May 7, 2011 near Millner, N.D., spilled about 21,000 gallons of oil in total.
5. The Environmental Concerns About Oil Leaks Are Justified
Nebraska’s Republican Governor Dave Heineman strongly opposed the Keystone XL project because the pipeline would run through a massive and vital aquifer in his state the supplies clean drinking water to over 2 million Americans plus water that fuels the region’s agriculture industry.
Building the pipeline might have created a few thousand temporary jobs but even a minor oil spill in or near the aquifer would have jeopardized hundreds of thousands of jobs, not to mention the health and safety of millions.
Meanwhile, in Michigan where a similar tar sands pipeline spilled over 840,000 gallons of crude oil into the Kalamazoo River in 2010, residents are still complaining of headaches, dizziness and nausea while studies continue to look at the long-term effects of just being near such an oil spill when it happens.
6. Mining Tar Sands Would Worsen Global Warming
Assuming you believe, like the vast majority of the world’s scientists, that climate change is both real and of concern, the Canadian tar sands are the second largest carbon reserve in the world.
Mining these reserves would release all of that carbon into the atmosphere, to detrimental effect on our environment. Sure, Canada might go ahead and mine the tar sands anyway, but the United States doesn’t have to help pollute the planet and our own states in the process.
Naaaaah. Your so called "facts" are just that. YOUR "facts". lol You are just your same old gullible self.
Hey! Anyone who voted for Obama TWICE really should at least begin to question their own intelligence. THAT is why none of the rest of us take seriously anything you and the other libroids post. You simply can't be trusted. You have very poor judgement. Now THAT is indisputable.

I guess we'll find out in Nov. how dead the Republican party is,huh?.
I don't see many people laughing at the illiterate redneck democrats mainly because people are MAD at democrats. Going back to the link I posted about the LIBERAL billionaire buying political power, I suppose his spending his wealth to buy power is okay. Right? If a conservative billionaire buys power, that's wrong. Correct?( Now you see how WE laugh at YOU.)
