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

Actually, what would be nice is if rational, clear-thinking democrats on the left moved a little more to the right and rational, clear-thinking republicans moved just a little closer to right of center.

Think we could make some progress that way.

We'll have to hold on this being a possibility until the Divider-in-Chief leaves once and for all.

Nuculur Obama won we get it, nothing change still 16 trillion in debt and counting, my question was will Reid pass a budget?
My answer is "Who cares".

You lost.

Now be a good little wingnut and STFU.

Obama will continue to have his way with McConnell and Boney until the midterms.

With Democratic takeover of the House, there will be no further obstructionism from the wingnut Party.

The economy would be far better if the Republoiclowns hadn't taken the house in 2010.
Once the Dems control all of Washington, things will improve in a hurry.

And you'll still be a loser.

According to various reports, Obama will nominate Chuck Hagel for defense secretary. Beinart puts the nomination in context:
What makes Hagel so important, and so threatening to the Republican foreign-policy elite, is that he is one of the few prominent Republican-aligned politicians and commentators (George Will and Francis Fukuyama are others, but such voices are rare) who was intellectually changed by Iraq. And Hagel was changed, in large measure, because he bore within him intellectual (and physical) scar tissue from Vietnam. As my former colleague John Judis captured brilliantly in a 2007 New Republic profile, the Iraq War sparked something visceral in Hagel, as the former Vietnam rifleman realized that, once again, detached and self-interested elites were sending working-class kids like himself to die in a war they couldn’t honestly defend.
To my mind, this is his core qualification. Unlike so many of the lemmings and partisans of Washington DC, Hagel actually called out the catastrophe of the Iraq War as it happened. The neocons cannot forgive him for exposing what they wrought on the nation and the world. For good measure, he has a Purple Heart and has served in combat. Not easy to say about most of the Iraq War armchair warriors and war criminals.
Which is to say, as Chuck Todd said this morning, this nomination is about accountability for the Iraq War. All those ducking responsibility for the calamity - Abrams, Kristol, Stephens - are determined that those of us honest enough to resist, having supported in the first place, be erased from history. Or smeared as anti-Semites. Or given that epithet which impresses them but baffles me: "outside the mainstream". Rephrase that as - after initial support - being "outside the Iraq War mainstream" in DC - and you have a major reason to back him.

Nobody cares about Obama's Cabinet or gun control.

Taxes, spending, and the deficit are the main issues, despite Democrat attempts to create trivial diversions.

By the way, why doesn't Obama withdraw from Afghanistan today? Nobody would even try to stop him.

"All My Babies' Mamas," a one-hour reality special slated to air in the spring of 2013, features Carlos "Shawty Lo" Walker, an Atlanta-based hip-hop artist with 11 children by 10 different women. Oh, he's also got a 19-year-old girlfriend, who's a year shy of his oldest child.
By the looks of the leaked sneak peak and an early press release, the show's take on this challenging family dynamic is more "Brady Bunch" than "An American Family."
"As the household grows, sometimes so does the dysfunction, leaving the man of the house to split his affection multiple ways while trying to create order," reads the goofy-sitcom-style description, in a press release posted the Oxygen's website late December. "Will there be a conflict over a family holiday, who needs school supplies and who holds the household finance purse strings, or can these feisty babies' mamas band together and live peacefully as one family unit?"

Ok. Let's start with something very simple to understand. There were times when the Earth had much more ice than today. During those times, the temperature was lower than it is today. We call those times "Ice Ages".
Now, this may get a little complicated for you. You may need to write this down.
When the temperature begins to increase, the amount of ice on the Earth decreases.
Now, here is a very elementary description of the multiple ice age cycles of the Earth's recent history.

try to look on the bright side:

The Top 10 Reasons Why Obama’s Re-Election Was Good for America

10. The protestors of Occupy Wall Street will get a free education in seeing what happens when the one-percent no longer gives a shit and no longer chooses to fund the welfare state while being cast as villains.

9. For sociologists, Obama’s reelection provides a unique opportunity to witness the curious phenomenon of liberals who once took such great pride in questioning authority now imploring us all to shut-up and obey our masters.

8. The movie “Idiocracy,” once regarded a somewhat obscure comedy, will finally be hailed as a prophetic vision of the future and the true work of genius that it is.

7. We have now been diagnosed, which is the first step in seeking treatment. America has chosen to double-down on the failed policies which brought us four years of rising unemployment and crippling deficits. If the definition of insanity is said to be “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results,” then we can now diagnose America as clinically insane.

6. In successfully campaigning to reelect the president, the old media gets a lot of the credit at the cost of all of their credibility. After spending every last dime of their credibility, they may have hastened their own extinction, but at least they can take solace in this – with no more need to campaign for Obama, they can treat him just like a child treats a toy they’ve grown bored of and spend the next four years taking him apart.

5. Barack Obama once mocked the idea of American Exceptionalism by saying,“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” For too long America has been subject to the undue burdens of being the last great hope for freedom in the world. Now Obama and those of his ilk have all the opportunity they need to make America completely unexceptional. ENJOY THE NEWFOUND LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY THAT COMES BEING UNEXCEPTIONAL, AMERICA!

4. Obama got what he wished for in winning a second term as president. Defining moments from our last four two-termers include Katrina, Impeachment, Iran-Contra and Watergate. While it’s too late to warn Obama to be careful what he wishes for, at least we can say, enjoy it while it lasts.

3. While readers themselves ranked Atlas Shrugged as the greatest book of all time, most literary critics despise the book. With Obama reelected, we no longer have to read through an 1,100 page book to see what happens to America when the masses elect the Marxists and the looting runs rampant.

2. The most famous book written on the Roman Empire is Gibbon’s “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” Now historians of today can witness firsthand the most famous period in our history.

1. Those lucky enough to have been alive when America was the most prosperous nation on Earth can enjoy the looks of disbelief on their grandchildren’s faces when they tell them the stories of how things were back before America joined the third world.

We knew this was coming. They are chomping at the bit to become a one-party nation. We should all know the consequences and what that means as well.
It's the mentality of the nation that I worry about more than anything - the ones who are allowing it to happen.
But the good news is that this could backfire after a few more years and after the nightmare of Obamacare kicks in. Americans might just wake up.
Wouldn't it be a hoot if Republicans ended up represnting a one-party nation that the Democrats so long for?
The demographics of this nation are sounding a death knell for you hateful Republiclowns.

Your war on women failed.

Your war on minorities failed.

Your war on science failed.

Your war on poor and struggling Americans has failed.

Your war on middle class Americans has failed.

Your party is stuck with a dwindling minority of old, white voters.

Whites will be a minority in America soon. They already are in many states.

Deal with it, loser.
