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

My God, not green energy initiatives OMG OMG OMG
Not education - those socialist union f*cks.
Not welfare - taking from the rich & giving to the poor.
Funny how you right whiers no longer agree with any of those issues.
Yet here you are, praising Bush.
I can only assume its because you are just ignorant of the facts.
He was governor of Texas during pretty good times.

The State of Texas employs a weak governor system__the Lt Governor actually has more power in legislative matters.

Duhmmy.

(quips from the WH correspondence dinner)

“You could buy an island and call it ‘Nobama’ for that money. Sheldon would have been better off offering me $100 million to drop out of the race,” Obama laughed.“I probably wouldn’t have taken it, but I’d have thought about it.”

As for how the past four years had aged him at 51, Obama joked,“I’m not the strapping young Muslim Socialist I used to be.”

The president had some self-deprecating moments, even looking ahead to who might succeed him in 2016, including Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

“I mean, the guy has not even finished a single term in the Senate and he thinks he’s ready to be president,” said Obama, a reference to his own Senate career.“Kids these days!”
----------
Really???

1995, Aug - Obama files paperwork to run for Palmer's Illinois Senate seat

1996, Jan - Obama has his four competitor petitions invalidated; he emerges as the only candidate

1996, Nov - Obama is elected to Illinois Senate, which is controlled by Republicans

1999 - Obama begins running for Congress

2000 - Obama loses his challenge for Congressional seat held by Rep. Bobby Rush

2001 - Obama receives legal services contract with Illinois firm owned by Robert Blackwell, Jr. A few months later, Obama writes a letter on Illinois Senate letterhead in support of a tourism grant for a different Blackwell company. The next day, "Obama's U.S. Senate campaign received a $1,000 donation from Blackwell... In the presidential race he is credited on Obama's website with committing to raise $100,000 to $200,000 for Obama's campaign."

Obama reported $98,158 income for providing legal services; $80,000 was from Blackwell's firm."Illinois ethics disclosure forms are designed to reveal possible financial conflicts by lawmakers... Obama did not specify that EKI provided him with the bulk of the private-sector compensation he received... he attached a multi-page list of all the law firm's clients, which included EKI among hundreds."

2002, Nov - Democrats usurp Republican control of the Illinois Senate

2003-2004 - Obama amasses his legislative record, serves as chair of the Health and Human Services Committee

2003 - Obama begins running for US Senate; the leading Democratic candidate will withdraw in 2004 due to a sex scandal that Obama's campaign urged the Chicago Tribune to report.

2003 - David Axelrod [begins having] camera crews virtually everything Obama has done in public." He uses this footage to create a five-minute Internet video for the 16 Jan. 2007 announcement that Obama is running for president....

and here we are, 2013....

on a personal note-Myself and the POTUS Duh A Vey, we're the same age, with in just a few months even (according to what records have been provide to use anyway).
I think I would have to give serious consideration before calling another fellow legislator a "kid", OR address any one older in public debates, with such sardonic tones, as were seen in teh debates of 2012.

And Peas- In 2006 Obama published the book, The Audacity of Hope, but imhumbleo Dreams of (the) Father is a much more interesting read.

Obama has won an overwhelming majority in the Electoral College, a majority of the popular vote and a majority of the nation’s states—including most of the country’s largest states and states in every major region of the republic: New England, the mid-Atlantic, the Great Lakes, the South, the Southwest, the Mountain West and the West. Winning all battle ground states but one.
Look, it's painful to watch your team get smashed. I get it, but this wasn't even close and taking 51% as the popular vote is a landslide(which you are rounding down because if memory serves me right it was 51.7% which would make it closer to 52% rounded up), because any way you slice it he won with millions more voting for him than everyone else.(you know, there was other people running in the election.) Romney got 47% of the vote (47%... where did I hear that number before....)
So landslide, by definition a crushing defeat. ideals completely rejected, theme not acceptable, no one wants what you are selling, Maybe next time, sorry I am just not that into you, we are just different people now with different paths and this isn't going to work out.
Math doesn't change either way you work it out.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.. Get all the fools on your side and you can be elected to anything you idiot...

Tamerlan and his mother vaguely discussed Jihad.

Compared to the US, Russia has very few malcontents to monitor and much less of a language barrier yo overcome.

Chances are very good that the Tsarnaev's had been on Russia's watch list for a good number of years due to the family requesting asylum.

Christie: Obama ‘Has Kept Every Promise He’s Made’ On Sandy Relief
"Listen, the President has kept every promise he's made," Christie said.“What I was saying at the time was, I was asked how the President was doing, I said, he’s doing a good job, he’s kept his word. And so everybody knows that I have about 95 percent level disagreement with Barack Obama on issues of principle and philosophy. But the fact is we have a job to do. And what people expect from people they elect is to do their job.”

In a first, black voter turnout rate passes whites

America's blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups in 2012 and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.

Had people voted last November at the same rates they did in 2004, when black turnout was below its current historic levels, Republican Mitt Romney would have won narrowly, according to an analysis conducted for The Associated Press.

Census data and exit polling show that whites and blacks will remain the two largest racial groups of eligible voters for the next decade. Last year's heavy black turnout came despite concerns about the effect of new voter-identification laws on minority voting, outweighed by the desire to re-elect the first black president.

Sorry Dorkerman. 52-48% popular vote is not a landslide. Now you really should pull your fingers out of that light socket while snorting that snow.

When MSN is even worried about the economy...

http://money.msn.com/investing/c_galleryregul...

The Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the Bank of Japan are all printing money and injecting it into the financial systems in various ways and, while this is giving stocks a sugar rush, it's not really helping the real economy heal its deep wounds. Despite the fact the Fed has nearly quadrupled the monetary base since 2008 and pushed inflation-adjusted interest rates deep into negative territory, we've experienced the weakest postwar recovery on record. And by many measures, things are starting to stall again.

...Obamacare is the noose around this economy and job creation. Time to stop blaming Bush and take a good look at Obama.

Should I pretend like others that it was in fact a "close" race, in the mean time I could also chase down a unicorn.

Interesting view point, anyone who voted for Obama is a fool which is the majority of America so by your logic America is a nation of fools.

You sir, are a American hating terrorist. Why do you hate America so much? We have done so much for the world our advancements in medicine alone should be points of admiration but you hate us so much...

No, America is a great country regardless of what your American hating punk @ss says. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-- Just as the St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church choir began its final hymn, a man vaulted over pews and lashed out at the singers, sending four churchgoers to the hospital with stab wounds, authorities said.

Worshippers screamed as the shocking and chaotic scene unfolded Sunday with the attacker continuing the onslaught until he was tackled and held by church members for officers, who raced to the scene, police said.

Police identified the suspect as 24-year-old Lawrence Capener
