Barack Obama, our next President

"Expect" and "spring" are used correctly--what's your problem?(BTW, Kvetch All Fraudy is a Notajew from Wisconsin.

<quoted text> "Currently, 56 percent of the continental U.S. is covered by some form of drought. That's an improvement from last summer, when the drought covered two-thirds of the nation.
The drought forecast calls for conditions to improve somewhat in eastern Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia and South Carolina. But the February-through-May drought forecast predicts conditions will worsen overall this spring, NOAA climatologist Dan Collins said.
And below-average precipitation is expected this spring in most Western states and the southeastern United States."

Currently 46%, with severe drought much, much lower.

Drought conditions are a fact of nature and always have been.

Good question.
Only to the extent that Obama's refusal to produce an original birth certificate raises controversy that could easily be resolved.
Even if Obama was born in Hawaii, Galt believes that the original birth certificate no longer exists, for whatever reason.
I know it's a good question, I asked it. So yes or no?

National Review’s Awful Egypt Editorial

The editors at National Review want the U.S. to fully back the Egyptian military in its “war” with the Muslim Brotherhood:

But the military’s horrific violence yesterday does not alter the U.S.’s calculus. The Muslim Brotherhood and the military government are now at war, and the latter remains the best hope for securing American interests and, ultimately, a free Egypt. We should therefore continue our financial and matériel support for the Egyptian military and maintain as close a relationship as possible to push the government toward our objectives.

Egypt is wracked by serious violence, but it has thankfully not yet succumbed to civil war. Cavalierly talking about what is happening in Egypt in these terms is foolish, and it suggests that the authors have a perverse desire to help the Egyptian military stoke an armed conflict in Egypt. It’s as if they looked at what Assad did to Syria and said,“Yes, let’s help the Egyptian army do that to their country!” Whatever else might come from such a conflict, it won’t be a “free Egypt.”

The NR editors find the violence earlier this week to be “horrific,” but their preferred policy ensures not only that there will be more of it, but that the U.S. will be actively supporting the most heavily-armed side as it commits new outrages. Instead of distancing the U.S. from the crackdown in Egypt, they would like Washington to be a full partner in it. That means having “as close a relationship as possible” with the government that just committed what is by some accounts the worst one-day massacre of civilian protesters by government forces since Tiananmen. It’s true that the U.S. has had close ties with many brutal authoritarian regimes over the decades, and occasionally they may have been necessary to protect U.S. security interests, but that argument doesn’t work in this case. The current relationship with Egypt has become a liability that the U.S. doesn’t need, and it ought to change.

Ronald Reagan's Birth Certificate
The 40th President of the United States had no trouble producing a birth certificate. In fact it is on display at the Reagan Library.

so tell us about how Reagan was born in 1942(thank you birther site).
1942? Must've been his certificate of death.

Republicans Compound Their Failure by Voting to Ban NBC and CNN from Primary Debates

Sure, NBC and CNN will miss out on the entertainment that the Republican circus has already proven to be. Americans love comedy but they love watching people fall on their faces even more. Given them both at the same time and they’ll be yours. No, they won’t vote for you, but they’ll love to hate you.

Maybe Republicans can get their Obama impersonating Minstrel Rodeo Clown to moderate with taxpayer dollars. That ought to keep the Tea Party base glued to their tee-vees. I hear he’s been invited to Texas by yet another Republican small tenter, but surely he can make time to properly pay homage to the party who brought him to the dance.

The Republican Party has just figured out how to make their tent even smaller, and that’s saying something with their party identification hovering in the low twenties. Self-defeating much? Then again, maybe their best hope is hiding their candidates from the people.

I expect we will never hear the word 'birther' again from rightwingers if Ted Cruz, born in Canada, wins the Republican nomination.

"Who, what, where? ah we were just kidding we knew Obama's birth certificate was legit the entire time plus his mother was a citizen so he must have been eligible."

Ted Cruz's Candidacy Would Be Awkward For Birthers

The Constitution likely allows Canadian-born Ted Cruz to run for President but birthers may disagree.

In 2008,“birthers” vehemently and strenuously argued that Barack Obama could not be President. They asserted that the President, whose mother was a citizen but whose father was not, was born in Kenya and therefore could not be a “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. Of course, President Obama was born in Hawaii so the debate seemed irrelevant---a matter best left to the conspiracy theorists and Donald Trump. It isn’t anymore.

First-term Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is already considered a 2016 contender, was born in Canada to a mother who was an American citizen and a father who was then a citizen of Cuba. It’s the exact same fact pattern: foreign birth, citizen mother, non-citizen father that birthers thought applied to Obama. The only difference is that this time it’s true.

Hey pal, that was supposed to be Florida's high speed rail project__from Orlando to Tampa and your boy Scott killed it so the geniuses in Washington shifted the funds to the Golden State.

Imagine cruising along at 140mph on a frickin train when a wee 3.0 magnitude earth quake causes the rails to separate a few inches.

Oh My!
