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 ...

Washington Post - Eight years ago, a far richer John Kerry and his wife paid a slightly lower tax rate and also dispersed their money globally as all sensible rich people do. However, they were lauded by many of the same folks who had a hissy fit about Mr. Romney’s finances.
Avoidance of excessive taxation by legal means is every person's patriotic duty.

No problem, given that it would not involve any official sanction of homosexual "marriage."
Besides, the fundamentalists are losing power because they can't deliver votes and have nowhere to go, like all plantation voters.
Anti-abortion economic leftwingers, anyway.
Really?
Is that why so many states with GOP controlled legislatures are so busy passing personhood and anti-abortion bills?
You'll be stuck with more idiotic rape comments come 2014. The base of your Party demands it, regardless of what Turdblossom has to say about it.

Red meat for the fools, just like Obama wasting his time on gun control legislation.

Except that gun control legislation pisses off as many Democrats as Republicans, and they are all one-issue voters.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was greeted on his first visit to Afghanistan since taking office by suicide bombs, threats and Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s accusation that the U.S. is colluding with the Taliban.

As Hagel prepared to leave a U.S. military compound in Kabul on March 9, a Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up outside the Ministry of Defense, and another suicide bomb detonated in Khost province. Yesterday, Karzai said that those attacks, which together killed 19 people, aided U.S. goals. A joint Hagel-Karzai press conference at the presidential palace was canceled for what Pentagon officials said were security reasons.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said he told Afghan President Hamid Karzai that "it was not true that the United States was unilaterally working with the Taliban trying to negotiate anything."

While the Taliban said the attacks were aimed at sending a message to Hagel that the insurgents remain a powerful force, Karzai said in a speech yesterday that the U.S. is holding peace talks with the radical Islamists and the bombs were in the “service of America.”

Democrats win all the elections, but except for Obama's buddies, Republicans have all the money and keep widening the gap with Obama's peasants.

Life is good.

You really must be a geek if you believe Obama is part of the"in crowd." You must've really had it hard coming up as a youngen, food taken everyday, forced to do the Jocks homework, & dissed by even the nerdy girls. Sad, sad, sad! You'll never know what it feels to be in the in crowd giving the fact republicans will never grace the office of presidency!

Obama's side threw the most rotten eggs that stuck last year.
Debating the issues and defending them isn't part of the game.
Republicans need to learn to compete in the mud and not be intimidated by charges of racism.

They also need to stick to meaningful issues and drop the abortion stuff, which hurts them badly with many women who would otherwise vote Republican.

The folks from your church probably didn't vote anyway, because of Romney's religion. So what good are they?

I don't think an American president should be trying to make fools of other Americans, it points to his coarseness and his partisanship. He placates half the country and ridicules the rest, that's NOT the role a president "..of (all) the people", should play.
Thanks to the fine stealth work by Jimmy Carters grandson; the world got to see firsthand the snarky comments of Mitt Romney. The famous 47% comment sunk him.
President Obama relates to the American people and they to him.

As a result of the unsavory politics in urban Atlanta, northern suburban communities acted to distance themselves. Beginning in 2005, many communities began the process of incorporating into cities.

Thus far, Milton, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Chattahoochee Hills and Johns Creek have done so.

These cities, after breaking away politically from urban Atlanta, have become so successful that a libertarian think tank, the Reason Foundation, has featured Sandy Springs as a model of effective government. The Economist has also applauded the northern Atlanta cities for solving the problem of unfunded government pension liability and avoiding the bankruptcy that looms over some urban areas. The new cities may soon be able to create their own school districts, which would free them even further from the issues besetting Atlanta.

While incorporation has been popular with residents of the new cities, not all of Atlanta is as satisfied. The Georgia Legislative Black Caucus filed a lawsuit in 2011 to dissolve the new cities, claiming they were a “super-white majority” and diluting the voting power of minorities.

A key leader in the black community and a driving force in support of the lawsuit, who wishes to remain anonymous, bemoaned the “disturbing tendency of black electorates to not elect the smartest and brightest, or even the cleverest.”

Nonetheless, he believes that there is a social contract between the northern and southern parts of the county.

“So when you allow powerful groups of citizens to opt out of a social contract, and form their own, it may benefit the group opting out, but it hurts the larger collective,” he said.

The lawsuit would have canceled incorporation and tied the cities back into the very county that they purposefully left.

State Rep. Lynne Riley, a Republican who represents one of the new cities, called the lawsuit “frivilous” and “disrespectful to the citizens of these cities who are most satisfied with their government.”

The federal trial court rejected the lawsuit, and the court of appeals affirmed the dismissal. However, an attorney for the Black Caucus plans to file an amended lawsuit.

Meanwhile, the same concerns that spurred incorporation continue to mount.

The only issues that motivate the rightwingers are taking away rights of others. Abortion and gay marriage, gets the haters to the polls.

Romney is the only candidate who has a Swiss bank account. He did not release those years of tax returns because that would have revealed the extent to which he avoided taxes.
Do you know how many years of tax returns John Kerry released?
I think it was 12-14. Registering yachts in other states is a common practice; and he corrected it.
