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 ...

Pouting little girl Obama rejects bipartisan bill to pay veterans death benefits.
LMAO. Here you are with egg on your face once again. When will you people learn to stop listening to reich wing bloggers and Faux Noise?

"President Barack Obama signed into law a bill providing benefits to the families of fallen troops during the government shutdown on Thursday.

The bill, which passed the House and Senate with unanimous approval, guarantees that family members of deceased soldiers continue to receive death gratuities and other survivor benefits from the Pentagon.

On Wednesday, the White House said Obama was "disturbed" to find that families of fallen troops weren't receiving death benefits during the shutdown.

The administration had worked out a temporary solution before the bill was signed, in which the Fischer House Foundation would make payments to the soldiers' families from its own funds. The Defense Department planned to reimburse the foundation at the end of the shutdown."

So here is my take away from tonight... this is just a "bitch session" and place to call names. Not one of you have put forth one idea even comment such as:

"I don't like Obama because he has ????". All I hear is that I am a dumb%&**&, an idoit, clueless, etc.

Have you guys really thought this out... or are you just singing a song you heard on Fox News?

I REALLY wish there were people here who could actually discuss and debate real ideas and political policies.... guess I'm in the wrong place and will move along.

But you guy's need to understand that you are not contributing to anything substantial by trading insults. As long as the poor people are kept ignorant and arguing with each other ... the rich are safe and we will continue to be slaves to the corporations.

I sincerely hope things turn out well for you folks... but I fear they will not. The middle class is slowly being destroyed and you are being told that this is a good thing. Yet!!!... you believe it.... very sad.

Obama is not the Anti-Christ that Limbaugh/Beck/Fox News tell you about every day. PLEASE>>> for once... think for yourself. Go outside your normal conservative outlets for information.
THEN.... make up your own mind!!!!!!
People like Thomas Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Hamilton, etc educate themselves. They did not listen to Fox and then "carry the message".
You need to ask yourself - are you a freethinking, informed American,,, or a pawn? And, think about it, how often do "pawns" know that they are pawns?
Gee, thanks. This is all news to me.

How 'bout the rest of you guys and gals? Don't know what we peons would have done had you not shown up to save the day.

Hey, let's all give a big round of applause to Seymour the Savior!

By the way...what's with the constant FOX reference? I've also watched MSNBC on occasion. They seem very slanted toward the left, but receive no scorn from you. Why is that?

Nope. The solution is to keep it running and fix the problems as they arise. You don't just shut it down.

The WSJ/NBC Poll Is a Complete Republican Rout

To put the positive/negative ratings in perspective, the Republicans are at -29 compared to the Democrats’-1. Adding insult to injury, not only has the GOP’s negative rating jumped by nine points since last month, but Obama’s approval (47%) is up slightly from the previous poll, and the percentage of respondents saying that the ACA is a “good idea” rose by seven points over last month. It is still at an anemic 38%, but according to the arguments of those seeking to defund the ACA the law shouldn’t be getting more popular. The figure for those responding that the law is a “bad idea” has dropped by six points since June. Respondents also favored a Congress controlled by Democrats by a 47-39% margin. Like the Gallup result, it is just one poll, but the news is so thoroughly bad for the GOP that it is impossible at this point to ignore just how much damage this pointless standoff has done to the party.

Many Republican respondents were unsparing in their view of what their representatives have been doing:

More than a third of Republicans disapproved of how their party’s members in Congress are doing their job, while nearly 40% said congressional Republicans were putting the party’s agenda above the good of the country [bold mine-DL].

When that many people in your own party are against what you’ve been doing, it is absurd to believe that you are in a position to “win” anything.

Obama's government shutdown proves just how brownshirt the USA has become since comrade obama, denying people freedom, destroying the middle class, controlling peoples lives, and denying people their rights..

Marxism has only 2 classes.. The Elite and bourgeoisie... Mow more part time jobs thanks to obama spreading the wealth verses full time jobs destroying the middle clas...

The Republican Party has been "badly damaged" by the government shutdown, according to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday evening, which finds public opinion souring on the GOP and some of its core positions.
Americans blamed Republicans over President Barack Obama for the shutdown by a margin of 22 percentage points, with 53 percent saying the GOP deserved more blame, and 31 percent saying Obama did. Approval ratings for the Republican Party and the tea party were at 24 percent and 21 percent respectively -- both record lows as measured by NBC/WSJ.
Democrats aren't wildly popular either. Obama's approval rating is a marginally positive 47 percent, while the Democratic Party is at 39 percent, and congressional Democrats are at 36 percent.
A slim plurality of Americans say Obama should negotiate with Republicans, even before they agree to a deal that reopens the government or raises the debt ceiling. The president's approval has remained stable since the shutdown, and there are signs that Democrats may get a boost from the shutdown's political effects.
Voters were 8 points more likely to say they'd prefer a Democratic-controlled Congress over a Republican-controlled Congress, a 5-point shift toward the Democrats since last month. Support for the new health care law, the touchstone of the government shutdown, rose a net 8 points from September, while the belief that government should do more to solve problems was up 8 points from June.
“That is an ideological boomerang,” Bill McInturff, the GOP pollster who conducts the NBC/WSJ poll along with Democratic pollster Peter Hart, told NBC.“As the debate has been going on, if there is a break, there is a break against the Republican position.”

Ray Donovan,
I use Fox news because of the comments of the posters I was addressing at the time. Agree - MSNBC is a failed copy of Fox, but I think they are less likely to lie than Fox. But lie they do...

I am in favor of a third party. Financial conservatives. Socially moderate.
