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 ...

Katrina
By the time President Bush found out--in a report by a senior aide--he already looked out of touch. He belatedly cut short his vacation, and the White House released a photograph of the president looking out a window of Air Force One at the devastation below, which only made Bush appear more distant from the calamity
Landing a president in the middle of New Orleans with all the rioting and looting wouldn't have helped those in need of rescue and would have created an even more dangerous distraction.

Sometimes you just have to have perspective and think of the outcome being even worse than the way things might seem based on bias and a photograph.

Bush was blamed for everything in case you forgot. He single-handedly was responsible for 9/11 less than 9 months on the job. He single-handedly created the housing market bubble and signed every bad loan leading to the housing market collapse. He single-handedly increased the budget without any help from Congress - on both sides.
I just judge Obama for being the radical liberal he is by his own voting record, by what he says, his desire to strengthen unions and grow an even bigger government by passing legislation for that purpose and because he said we were to judge him by who he surrounded himself by.
That's all I'm doing. Not to mention he has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt he thinks he is above the law and the constitution and has no qualms about lying straight-faced to us - even about something as serious as a terrorist attack on 9/11.
Was Bush a perfect president? No. Did he deserve to be blamed for everything and Democrats come out looking squeaky clean? No.
Like I said, if the shoe fits.
I like President G W Bush, wish he had attended the Republican convention last year. Not perfect but superior to those running the party into the ground now>

You seem out of step with the Republican Party.

Your "the sky is falling" posts become amusing after five years.

Republicans feel entitled to the Presidency and get a bit frantic when they lose twice?

I believe Congress was unanimous on the Afghanistan War after 9/11.
What's debatable at this point is should it have continued this long under Obama. The Iraq War ended years ago. The Iraqis, though still struggling to find their legs, at least vote for their leaders now.
The animosity growing in Afghanistan and now Pakistan should be the most pressing concern. Not Iraq. Thankfully, Saddam is not Obama's problem now.
Yes, thankfully, Obama was successful in taking out Saddam. However, there should be no question that Obama has also been successful in working toward bringing our conflicts abroad to an end, despite an uncompromising Congress. There should be no question in anyone's mind that had John McCain been successful in his bid for president, we would not only still be waging wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan but Iran and Syria as well.

Bush's "war on terror" was destined to fail... as is any conflict aimed at, or in support of, religious fanatics. It is my perception that Obama is doing a better job of getting us out of the mess Bush led us into than any warmongering con like John McCain ever could. Remember, it was John McCain who spoke of possible military involvement in Iran and Syria in his speeech to the RNC.

The glass is half full under Obama. Half empty under McCain.

I'm going to post this and then I will have said enough and made enough people angry at least for the time being.

Big government desires control in the guise of compassion. The millions thrown at the War on Poverty in the past five decades would have made a difference already otherwise and the poverty level would not be rising in the past four years in spite of all the stimulus money spent to avoid it. Democrats talk the talk but can't walk the walk. Liberally run inner cities would be shining examples of a thriving and productive populace rather than slums filled with crime, despair and hate where poverty is a vicious cycle with no way out if their motive was truly to help the poor.

That kind of compassion creates atrophy and apathy in the minds of those who begin to believe they really are victims in a system perpetrated by the very party who creates it and yet claims to detest it so much.

It's amazing to me how many can't see this with their own eyes and still believe some kind of utopia actually exists.

Jobs and opportunities are the light at the end of the tunnel. Welfare is a helping hand to those who are trying to improve their circumstances - not take advantage of them.

Helping the poor lies within each of us. Not in an oversized, bloated and self-serving government. The very same government who does not create jobs and opportunites but has made it more difficult for those who do to provide them.

What this administration has sown, may they also reap. May the truth be revealed sooner than later for all who have eyes and ears to see and hear in the weeks and months to follow.

Above all, may God help us.

Later...

You are short on answers yourself. You sit there all smug asking questions that have been asked before at congressional hearings with no straight answers coming forward. Much of this info is probably being exchanged behind close doors.
Eventually the answers will come out -are you ready?
You are a troll. You asked when the CIA mission started and
I gave you a straight up answer that you childishly responded too.
You and Nuk seems to think that these questions absolve the Obama admin somehow which is just stupid game playing. They do not as the bottom line is the St Dept failed to supply adequate security and NO ONE but you two sillies think this is a defense. You probably read it on some Progressive site and decided it was somehow a defense.
I'm waiting for the persons name, where is it?

Benghazi the Definitive is a fkn joke written by a couple of enlisted personnel who were probably OK soldiers but have become lousy historians and writers.

Brandon Webb has a wiki page, Jack Murphy is sort of lean on history. You liked what you read__that's on you.

The term "progressive" shows a lack of intellect on your part.

Me and Nuk are not a team.

When did the CIA first reappear in Libya?

The embassy is in Tripoli the Mission on Fourth Ring Road in Benghazi and the so called CIA annex about 3/4 mile to the East of the Mission.
When did the CIA move into the annex and for what purpose?
Paula Broadwell stated that the CIA annex (base) was used to hold prisoners? How would she know that? Why don't we know what her bff said to Issa's committee? Why don't we know why Stevens was at the Benghazi Mission without his complete security detachment better, why don't we know why Stevens was at the Mission?
The question was asked, Clinton was not allowed to answer.
You, like Carol are long on bullsht and short on answers__troll games IMO.
GFY
After re-reading your post I see you are long on BS.

The consulate was first attacked not the annex. If you are attempting to make the annex the cause of the consulate attack, you have no support for your claim. The annex was NOT attacked until consulate personnel was moved to it.

The protestors were chanting the name of a man killed in a drone attack and this was the source of their anger.

PROVIDE proof that the consulate was attacked due to the annex. Without it you are obfuscating.

But, NONE of this makes SQUAT of a difference as the rising terrorism in the region should have sent up red flags. These were ignored by the State Dept. And nothing you have posted changed this.

The attacks on Benghazi
"According to Jack Murphy and Brandon Webb in "Benghazi: The Definitive Report," the Regional Security Office in Tripoli "compiled a list of 234 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012, 50 of which took place in Benghazi."[19]:30
In April 2012, two former security guards for the consulate threw a homemade "fish bomb" IED over the consulate fence; the incident did not cause any casualties.[20] Just 4 days later, a similar bomb was thrown at a four vehicle convoy carrying the United Nations Special Envoy to Libya, exploding just 12 feet from the UN envoy’s vehicle without injuring anyone.[21]
In May 2012 an Al-Qaida affiliate calling itself the Imprisoned Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades claimed responsibility for an attack on the International Red Cross (ICRC) office in Benghazi. On August 6 the ICRC suspended operations in Benghazi. The head of the ICRC's delegation in Libya said the aid group was "appalled" by the attack and "extremely concerned" about escalating violence in Libya.[22]
The Imprisoned Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades released a video of what it said was its detonation of an explosive device outside the gates of the U.S. consulate on June 5, which caused no casualties but damaged the consulate's perimeter wall,[23][24] described by one individual as "big enough for forty men to go through."[18] The Brigades claimed that the attack was in response to the killing of Abu Yahya al Libi, a Libyan al-Qaeda leader who had just died in an American drone attack, and was also timed to coincide with the imminent arrival of a U.S. diplomat.[25][26] There were no injuries, but the group left behind leaflets promising more attacks against the U.S.[27]
British ambassador to Libya Dominic Asquith survived an assassination attempt in Benghazi on June 10. Two British protection officers were injured in the attack when their convoy was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade 300 yards from their consulate office.[28] The British Foreign Office withdrew all consular staff from Benghazi in late June.[29][30][31]
On June 18, 2012, the Tunisian consulate in Benghazi was stormed by individuals affiliated with Ansar Al-Sharia Libya, allegedly because of "attacks by Tunisian artists against Islam."[19]:31
On the day of the attack:
Al Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri declared that al Libi's death still needed to be avenged.[32]
In Egypt, 2000 Salafist activists protested against the film "Innocence of Muslims" at 5pm EET (11am EDT) at the US embassy in Cairo.[33]
President Obama was attending a 9/11 ceremony in the morning, and in the afternoon he visited with wounded veterans at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for two-and-a-half hours about the time the Benghazi attack began.[34]
Two consulate security guards spotted a man in a Libyan police uniform taking pictures of the consulate with his cell phone from a nearby building that was under construction. The security guards briefly detained the man before releasing him. He drove away in a police car and a complaint was made to the Libyan police station. Sean Smith noticed this surveillance, posting on the internet "assuming we don't die tonight. We saw one of our 'police' that guard the compound taking pictures."[19]:34

The Magic Negro's legacy will be one of failure. From Fast n Furious to Obamacare to Benghazi to Political Evils, Moral and Ethical lapses within his Administration, the Boy Messiah is quick becoming the historical image of how Americans can screw themselves.

When this country elected a man who did not vote in his Senate district to allow physicians to provide medical help to born alive botched abortion babies, I cried off and on for three days.

There was no way on God's green earth anything good would come out of it.

I've not trusted this president any further than I could throw him even before the election - much less afterwards.

Apparently, the majority of Americans weren't listening to what this man was saying and who he was surrounding himself by.

I believed then and believe now to my very core this country was hijacked and this president is not who he seems.

So what would you expect me to say in light of this?

Gotta go eat now though. Can't believe how fast the time went by this afernoon.

Playing stupid and ignorant isn't working for Obama, why do you think it will work for you?

The economy still sucks, unemployment is still high, terrorists are becoming bolder, the government is scandal-ridden, and Obama is responsible.

You keep ranting about an annex thinking it will divert attention from the lack of security at the consulate. It does not. NO ONE but you two sillies -NUK and you- seem to think this somehow makes it okay not to provide inadequate security. You are obfuscating. I am not playing the game.

Progressives is a political movement and I find your claim to the contrary ludicrous. Good grief there is a progressive liberal caucus in Congress. Now that was a lame and childish comeback in a string of such from you.
