Outcome-
Assad still in power able to use Russian supplied guns and bombs to continue killing men, women, and children. New credibility as the leader of Syria with the world as a result, not to mention the new world power, Russia. Iran is still rapidly enriching uranium and claiming they will destroy Israel. For the moment, we have strike capability from Afghanistan, but we are losing bad there to the rebel taliban all over the country. All this thanks to our president and our State Department starting with Hillary, who was a useless wanderlust during her tenure. If it wasn't for the danger our country has been placed in by this administration, it would all seem like a big joke. Remember people, our government is a reflection of the people that we are as a country. I have faced the enemy only to discover that all along it was me!

In fairness to Hillary, Obama really didn't want her to do anything or make any policy, so he basically sent her on a four-year round-the-world vacation.

The resulting frustration may have lead to her debilitating stroke.

According to the Sentier research, households headed by single women, with and without children present, saw their incomes fall by roughly 7%. Those under age 25 experienced an income decline of 9.6%. Black heads of households saw their income tumble by 10.9%, while Hispanic heads-of-households' income fell 4.5%, slightly more than the national average. The incomes of workers with a high-school diploma or less fell by about 8%(-6.9% for those with less than a high-school diploma and -9.3% for those with only a high-school diploma).
To put that into dollar terms, in the four years between the time the Obama recovery began in June 2009 and June of this year, median black household income fell by just over $4,000, Hispanic households lost $2,000 and female-headed households lost $2,300.
The unemployment numbers show pretty much the same pattern. July's Bureau of Labor Statistics data (the most recent available) show a national unemployment rate of 7.4%. The highest jobless rates by far are for key components of the Obama voter bloc: blacks (12.6%), Hispanics (9.4%), those with less than a high-school diploma (11%) and teens (23.7%).
This is a stunning reversal of the progress for these groups during the expansions of the 1980s and 1990s, and even through the start of the 2008 recession. Census data reveal that from 1981-2008 the biggest income gains were for black women, 81%; followed by white women, 67%; followed by black men, 31%; and white males at 8%.
In other words, the gender and racial income gaps shrank by more than in any period in American history during the Reagan boom of the 1980s and the Clinton boom of the 1990s. Women and blacks continued to make economic progress during the mini-Bush expansion from 2002-07. "Income inequality" has been exacerbated during the Obama era.
The Arsonist-In-Chief starts fires all throughout America and then takes his AF-1 Circus on the road calling for Congress to raise the deficit so we can fund more firefighting efforts.

This guy is a traitorous jerk that outshines all other jerks in the world. Dreams of his father are coming true, folks. America is now in decline because of his efforts.

Putin and Congress Checkmate Obama War-hawk “The US must carry out some act somewhere in the world which shows its’ determination to continue to be a world power.”- Henry Kissinger, quoted in The Washington Post, April 1975 The term ‘unintended consequences’ has been used frequently in discussions on the pending Obama Syrian strike. WWIII was used as the cherry on top.
But we did not have to wait long for a demonstration. We got what we Southerners call a General Nathan Bedford Forrest Confederate cavalry flank attack on Monday morning.
Putin was quoted on Friday as having some discussions with Obama on a possible Syrian crisis resolution, and then having Lavrov and Kerry follow up over the weekend.
When Kerry had his surprise ‘turn over your chemical weapons’ moment during his Monday press conference, and it was quickly followed by both Syrian and Russian acceptance, everyone initially suspected an orchestrated de-escaltion was being rolled out after some weekend negotiations.
But that changed quickly. Video tape showed Kerry’s remarks off the cuff responses to a question from a reporter. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was quick to recast the orchestration theory as a blunder on Kerry’s part, one snatched up at light speed by the Russian Foreign Ministry (excellent staff work).China, Iran, and the other ‘no pre-emptive strike’ countries jumped aboard the diplomatic solution train which left the station with neither Kerry or Obama aboard.
The Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Arabi, in the Egyptian capital Cairo on Tuesday, announced that a formal statement of support for the Russian plan was forthcoming. Britain’s PM, David Cameron also welcomed the proposal.

Okay folks here is what appears to be Obama's official line of excuse making
1)1) Rs call for strikes
2) Rs then oppose Obama's proposed strikes
3) Rs now oppose UN deal over its lack of force threat
1) McCain and Graham doesn't count
2) Just like the majority of Americans
3) You asked for use of force then reversed stance and agreed to removing threat of force
Obama never 'renounced the U S threat to use force'; he asked Congress to delay a vote on it--- McCain & Graham want to screw up a significant Obama foreign policy victory gained through tough diplomacy because Obama won't act rashly and jump on their reckless eagerness to push the U S into another overseas war.

What we watched happen here was a diplomatic and public relations rout. Let’s take a closer look at what was working behind the scenes for the John Kerry gaff to land onto such fertile ground.
First, we can confirm now that we did not see an orchestrated settlement. On Monday Obama was still digging his presidential historical grave by insisting he could legally intervene in Syria without Congressional approval.
Why did he shoot himself in the foot this way? He had counted Congressional votes over the weekend and learned he was going to lose big in the House and also the Senate, but by a smaller margin.
Calls for impeachment if he launched a strike without Congress approval were widely discussed over the weekend and had support from a wide cross section of Americans, including veterans and active duty troops who have been so sorely used by our politicians in our War of Terror.
Americans are not really tired of war, but of phony, manipulated wars. That is what is really driving the opposition.Some people were even posing that Putin might actually prefer an attack as it would end Obama’s legitimacy and America’s along with it on the world stage, whatever there is left of it anyway. It’s hard to believe really, but if you polled Americans now on which world leader has shown the best statesmanship, Putin would win hands down. The rest are viewed as cartoon characters.
Congressmen got pounced on by angry constituents over the weekend. One major example was Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell who had been sitting on the fence as undeclared. He got his ears chewed off by voters who had expected more of him. In a Senate floor speech on Tuesday he said:

If anyone referred to president Bush as a boy "real dumb" would say Amen. Those who refer to president nobama do so because he is not up to doing a man's job.

Nope. You are dumber than sh*t.
The deficit is coming down, not increasing.
The deficit as a % of the GDP has been dropping since Obama took office.
The amount by which expenses exceed income or costs outstrip revenues. Deficit essentially refers to the difference between cash inflows and outflows.

Georgia Healthcare Company to Lay Off Over 100 Because of Obamacare

11:09 AM, Sep 15, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER

A Georgia health care company will lay off over 100 employees due in part to Obamacare, according to a WSB-TV report:

"We have confirmed more than 100 Emory health care employees are going to lose their jobs in part because of the Affordable (health) Care Act," said a local anchor.

"I think it's bad it's affordable health care and people are losing their jobs," said a man interviewed by the reporter.

"It's sad. It really is," said another man. "A lot of people are going to lose their homes and cars and everything they worked all their life for."
