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 ...

So, you think he never monitored the situation & never received updates through his advisors & staff???
Panetta said he did.
Panetta said, though he did meet with Obama at a 5 o'clock prescheduled gathering, the president left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, "up to us."

In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House.

Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that night. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

Quite a contrast. She probably wouldn't have answered the phone in the middle of the night either.
Like anyone else, she is frustrated at IGNORANCE! Why should anyone have the patience for absurd, that's the only argument your lot has from birther to Islamic sympathiser. Neither of which deserve the time of day. But I guess on one hand Fox news helps the Chinese stimulation of the economy from ppl throwing bricks at their TV while at the same time adding to the toxic waste.
Which is what all your lot recycle again straight back at us!

Have you noticed how Hillary's teeth have gradually gotten extremely yellow over the years? They used to be bright white and now it looks like she's wearing a corn cob sideways in her mouth.

Working under the table can do that.

I still recall watching a female juror being interviewed after the Menendez Brothers' trial in California. The airhead exclaimed "He is so handsome...'he can't be guilty', I thought!"
The Magic Negro is in the same form as the Menendez brothers.
And American Liberals are in the same form as the airhead juror.
You can't judge a book by its cover but American Progressives don't read. They just watch Access Hollywood.
Comparing the first Black-American President Obama to two murderous brothers show what a 'pinhead' you turned out to be. Grown up and cease the childish, low-life 'insults'.

Message from Al Gore:

400 ppm May 10, 2013 : 10:25 AM

Yesterday, for the first time in human history, concentrations of carbon dioxide, the primary global warming pollutant, hit 400 parts per million in our planet's atmosphere. This number is a reminder that for the last 150 years -- and especially over the last several decades -- we have been recklessly polluting the protective sheath of atmosphere that surrounds the Earth and protects the conditions that have fostered the flourishing of our civilization. We are altering the composition of our atmosphere at an unprecedented rate. Indeed, every single day we pour an additional 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the sky as if it were an open sewer. As the distinguished climate scientist Jim Hansen has calculated, the accumulated manmade global warming pollution in the atmosphere now traps enough extra heat energy each day to equal the energy that would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-scale atomic bombs exploding every single day. It's a big planet -- but that is a LOT of energy. And it is having a destructive effect.

Now, more than ever before, we are reaping the consequences of our recklessness. From Superstorm Sandy which crippled New York City and large areas of New Jersey, to a drought which parched more than half of our nation; from a flood that inundated large swaths of Australia to rising seas affecting millions around the world, the reality of the climate crisis is upon us.

Our food systems, our cities, our people and our very way of life developed within a stable range of climatic conditions on Earth. Without immediate and decisive action, these favorable conditions on Earth could become a memory if we continue to make the climate crisis worse day after day after day.

With any great challenge comes great opportunity. We have the rare privilege to rise to an occasion of global magnitude. To do so, our communities, our businesses, our universities, and our governments need to work in harmony to stop the climate crisis. We must summon the very best of the human spirit and draw on our courage, our ingenuity, our intellect, and our determination to confront this crisis. Make no mistake, this crisis will demand no less than our very best. I am optimistic because we have risen to meet the greatest challenges of our past.

So please, take this day and the milestone it represents to reflect on the fragility of our civilization and and the planetary ecosystem on which it depends. Rededicate yourself to the task of saving our future. Talk to your neighbors, call your legislator, let your voice be heard. We must take immediate action to solve this crisis. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year. Now.

I thought Eman said Obama had to be pulled off the golf course before the raid or something like that. But it doesn't matter. Whenever the president is needed, that's where they usually find him anyway, so it was business as usual on the day of the raid.

Now try putting Hillary 's words back in their proper context of her testimony to Congress on the Benghazi tragedy. But, no , I guess you can't because you don't really give a damn for Americans killed overseas in the line of duty;do you?

Filthy sexual smears and grotesque ignorance only weakens your argument. Don't you know that? Or, don't you care? I bet it is the latter;isn't it?

It's a respectable news source. But if you prefer NBC News:

Come Sunday, Obama headed for the Andrews Air Force Base golf course as he does on many weekends when the weather is nice. But he only played nine holes instead of his customary 18 leaving after about three hours. The reporters who accompany him on public outings didn't think anything was amiss and thought the chilly, rainy weather played into the president's decision to leave several hours earlier than usual.

What they didn't know was that Obama was heading back for that final meeting on the bin Laden operation.

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/42874398/ns/world_n...

So what's the big deal anyway? He plays golf no matter what's going on. Remember his million dollar golf game with Tiger Woods right after the sequestration - which was his own idea? He must not have taken his own words of doom and gloom to heart.

In politics, as in Hollywood, everything is image over substance.

Unfortunately, American voters prefer image over substance.

How many guys married the H.S. Cheerleader and were miserable and divorced 2 years later? How many women married the Jock Captain on the football team only to find out that all that glitters is not Gold?

And then we elect Kennedy's.....Kenyans....Celeb rity's....and get screwed.

The Facts Are In and Paul Ryan Is Wrong

Changes in the way we think about the world are not “news” in the classic sense — they occur gradually, without discrete events to signal them. But they matter. Two such developments have come together recently, both reported in the New York Times. The first is the collapse of intellectual support for the notion that immediate austerity can boost economic growth. The second is a growing consensus that health-care-cost inflation is slowing for deep structural reasons, rather than having undergone a mere temporary dip from the recession. These trends have something in common: They blow to smithereens the intellectual foundations of the Obama-era Republican policy agenda.
