Hey BOY get some of this BOY news from around the WORLD How did it all go wrong? Well, CBS throws out another figure that explains all: support for the Affordable Care Act has slumped to another historic low of 31 per cent. That's a drop of 12 per cent since last month. The chaotic roll out has taken its toll on both the policy and the creative genius behind it. The website that crashes when you just look at it. The discovery that millions faced losing their existing healthcare plans even though the President insisted that they wouldn't. All of this incompetence and misleading leadership has added up. Barack Obama's one genuine policy achievement is starting to look like a dud. Perhaps the midterm elections won't return the House to the Democrats after all.

In the long run, this makes a nonsense of the view of Obama as a great president in the making. This week the US is celebrating a couple of anniversaries that inform its national mythology: the delivery of the Gettysburg address and the assassination of JFK. Obama has often been compared to JFK, and Obama has often encouraged others to compare him to Abraham Lincoln. But while those men each left a laudable, reformist impact upon their country (Lincoln freeing the slaves, JFK putting civil rights legislation into motion), Obama's record will probably be less "transformative" and more "embarrassing". Oh, there's the important fact that he was the first African-American to ever hold the office of the presidency. But on the domestic front there has been high spending and millions put on food stamps, while in international affairs we have witnessed a mix of withdrawal of leadership and aggressive drone warfare that has killed thousands. Economically, diplomatically and morally – it's been a messy five years. The public, it would appear, is finally waking up to its consequences.

Found some really good bargains and also sold a few myself at garage sales.
Bought a huge framed original canvas painting at a small thrift store for $30 years ago.

The artist's name is Andres. On the back, it's numbered with an official-looking seal as an extinguished work by Vanguard Studio. It's titled "Misty Harbor".

I just liked the painting. Tried to do some research. But still have no idea if it has any value or not. It's just an interesting painting.

Hearing-NO!

Some corrections....

Obama doesn't decide anything. He's just a shill. His only function is to read prescripted messages from a teleprompter and sign documents as he's ordered to sign. Thus, he wasn't asked anything. He was ordered to read that draft.
Now, what would a president who's actually in charge of something do if they were actually motivated to give honor and respect to what Lincoln actually said? They would know that the consistency of the newspapers of the era would have proved Lincoln used "God" when he adlibbed, and then a president who actually makes decisions would have repeated what Lincoln actually said.
Obviously, the people ordering Obama around didn't want Obama to offend his anti-Christian base, and ordered him to not use the word "God".
End of story.

Good morning Realtime.
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Why did Obama lie for four years when every other Democrat in Washington knew ObamaKare would cause tens of millions of people to lose the health care insurance they had during the time Obama was lying to the entire country?

Now, give us something like the truth here.
