Except he's not very good at organizing The Big Boys' Community either.

Every bill on gun law legislation shot down by his own party.

Talk about a bisch slap in the face!

Course those Dems voted "Nay" to save their re-election seat and feeding place at the public trough.

Meanwhile, the Boy Stupid sat sucking his psychological pacifier while pissy fitting, lamenting:
"They turned on ME! My OWN party, wicked, tricksy, false!
Gollum, Gollum!!"

Poor Boy Petulant stuck in a state of perpetual

He isn't going to get anything anymore.
Except a hard time.

About those Closet Skeletons ... A bag of bones creaking on their hinge, all cartilage, sinew and muscle have been picked and stripped clean. A Limp Leader!

Obama should go back to being a good community organizer. He does have a side to him that is charming and convincing when it comes to just acting like a nice guy.
But he has too many skeletons in his closet - and some are still alive and kicking - to be the leader of this nation.

Now teachers are just teaching a test. Which is not good.
I'm opposed to everything Obama believes and stands for. Everything you can possibly think of.
History will not be kind to us for being so easily swayed.
Your reaction to questions posed to you only highlights your biases. You claim Obama is only president to half the country. I call your bluff & question what is your assertion based on. You couldn't answer the question! What policies has Obama push, signed, & helped pass that was only for half the country? Then you talk about Clinton & the republican scandal. As proved by polling, America didn't give a shit about that man & his extracurricular activities. The republicans turned it into a he duped America by getting some brains from an intern/employee. That was the turning point in your mind that changed him from a good president into a bad president. How logical!

All the proof I've presented on Bush being#1 incompetent, & #2, only for the , you respond with a partisan agreement, but no proof to the contrary. Then question my blackness when again, narrow down the facts, giving you no wiggle room. With no wiggle room, you convert right back to throwing names & insults. So I'll ask, why don't you like Obama? Why did you back Bush when he proved to be completely incompetent? Do be specific with policies &/or ideology included!

A Democrat who voted down the bill said this, leosnana.
If you can't pay attention to the details in a two-paragraph post, how are you ever going to see the bigger picture?
Show me, Batty. They were rather purposely misleading the gullible by extending that nothing in THIS bill would have helped prevent Lanza from acquiring a weapon since they all belonged to his mother (think they had to pry it out of her cold, dead hand?); however, stronger background checks, making the owner responsible for the destruction caused by his guns, limiting the size of the magazine and the speed of the weapon, certainly might have inconvenienced the shooter long enough to prevent sixteen of the deaths. I intend to do everything I can to see that those cowards of either party, who put their own financial well-being ahead of the lives of first graders do not get another term. McConnell, especially, disgusts me to the extent (like the Gormless Old Pervs here) that I pray nightly for his swift and horrible death.

The Boston Marathon Bombing, The Ricin Letters, The Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion, all isolated incidences ... I don't believe so.

And, the Police Officer told The Dispatcher:
" ... A BOMB just exploded". He didn't say there's been an explosion ... He stated A BOMB.
And, in the first, early reports, it was reported there were 2 blasts/explosions.

The First Responder Fire Fighters who are missing were caught in that/those blast(s). They're dead.

So, who detonated the bomb(s). And Why?

Barack Obama: Wall Street’s Perfect Manchurian Candidate
Barack Obama has been in Wall Street's pocket since at least 2006, when he spoke to the fat cats who would bankroll his campaign and staff his government. The video tells the sorry tale and puts the present in context.“Listen to what he says about the antiquated programs from the 1930&#8242;s that people on the left ‘wrongly cling to,’ meaning Social Security.”

Who will defend the indefensible Obama? Answer: There will be fewer and fewer Obamapologists, as each day passes.“For the monumentally dysfunctional Black Misleadership Class, the winding down of the Age of Obama is cause for frantic repositioning, and for the revising of their own histories.”

Back in 2006, Barack Obama sold his soul to Wall Street bankers, who then supported his run for the presidency.“Barack Obama became president because he told the Rubins and Altmans of the world that he was on their side while simultaneously convincing millions of voters that he was on theirs.”

You know, I suspect that on Social Security we’ve got a somewhat similar position.”– Barack Obama in debate with Mitt Romney

“When a Democrat gets away with austerity and wars of aggression it is truly time to admit that a new paradigm is needed.”

Yes Virginia, there is a class war going on in America. There always has been, and the tide for working people ebbs and flows depending upon their own level of activism, world events, or economic conditions. For the past several decades working people have been losing and by growing margins with every successive presidential administration.

Despite the phony wars between Democrats and Republicans, there is consistency at the top. Ever since the Ronald Reagan presidency Democrats and Republicans have done their best to put and keep the malefactors of great wealth, the 1%, on top. Barack Obama has done nothing to alter this awful trend. Like all of his predecessors he would never have become president if he hadn’t sided with the ruling classes.

From what I've read, the president gave a very gracious and heartfelt speech at the interfaith service today.
Still, I'm more moved by the solidarity of Americans singing the "Star Spangled Banner" at that hockey game.
Sometimes I'm not sure if this president even knows all the words. He certainly didn't care enough to hold his hand over his heart during the playing of it in 2008.
Guess his handlers forgot to tell him that's what patriotic Americans do - especially presidential wannabes. Even Hillary knew that.
Can anyone really blame my cynicism?
I remember that crock of crap you right whiners had a fit about,.

Funny thing. Two days later I was eating at a restaurant & they had NASCAR on. The race was about to start & they were plying the National Anthem. The camera panned the drivers standing by their cars. Not a single hand over their heart. I laughed my ass off.

Beyond Obamacare: How A Single Payer System Can Save Health Care in the U.S.
Unlike Medicare, which President Johnson had up and running eleven months after passage, the Obama administration cynically delayed the full effect of its “Affordable Care Act” also called Obamacare, till 2016, when he would be leaving office because they know it won't come near to keeping the promises they made for it. But there's still a way to provide affordable quality care to everybody --- single payer.

The Untold Story of Antiwar Conservatives

And how the truth about invading Iraq was suppressed by laptop bombardiers.

Neither Buchanan nor any other anti-war writer could get published by The Washington Times. The Wall Street Journal op-ed would not accept any article opposing the war until one by Brent Scowcroft, who was too big a name to block. National Review, the Heritage Foundation, and the American Enterprise Institute’s publications and conferences would only promote pro-war opinions and propaganda. Fox News was a solid barrage of war promotion and panic-mongering. Human Events, the Cold War bulwark, had lost its great editor, Allan Ryskind, after which it just parroted the Bush administration.

....With The American Conservative there was a respected voice in Washington exposing the propaganda and warning of the catastrophic consequences of war for America. It gave Pat Buchanan a chance to be heard again. I took the magazine to all sorts of conservative groups and meetings. I belonged to many—the Grover Norquist Wednesday meeting, the Paul Weyrich lunch, the Philadelphia Society, the Council for National Policy, CPAC, and many lesser ones. Where I was prevented from speaking or only given a minute or two to talk, I could still distribute articles. At Paul Weyrich’s weekly meetings of leaders of major conservative organizations, the evangelical Christian Religious Right, in particular, were big war promoters. A dozen of them even petitioned to have me expelled, but Weyrich told them that they should also hear the antiwar side.

I had several large email lists of the organizations above and regularly sent out copies of articles contradicting the war-wishers and warning of the cost and consequences to come. The truth was easily available. Anyone who took the trouble to search Google would have found my widely linked “Lies About Iraq.”

So, in the year of the war’s 10th anniversary, remember that there were plenty of voices exposing the lies, incompetence, ignorance, and arrogance of those who favored starting unending wars in the Muslim world. We should thus be prepared for the next time. But instead we see much of the same gang frightening us again for another war, this time with Iran. America’s problem is that war is very profitable for the military-industrial complex and makes exciting TV for comfortable audiences at home. The consequences, however, wrote Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal, discredited the Republican Party, helped bankrupt America, and will be with us for years to come.

How the Internet Accused a High School Student of Terrorism

Online sleuths thought they nailed two suspects in the Boston bombing—and there they were on the cover of the ‘New York Post’ the next day. But now everyone’s backpedaling in a big way.

Don’t blame Rupert Murdoch. Blame the Internet.

Two men who appear to be innocent of any crime found themselves splashed on the cover of Thursday’s New York Post under the ominous headline,“BAG MEN.” The paper stated that the men, pictured sporting backpacks amid a crowd of spectators at Monday’s Boston Marathon, are being sought by federal officials for their alleged link to the bombing that killed three people and injured almost 200 more.

The Post, now under fire for posting the images without any apparent confirmation that the men are being investigated, implied that it obtained the image from law-enforcement sources. But it’s the same one that was circulated widely the night before on online communities like Reddit and 4chan, both of which have rushed to conduct an investigation from Internet armchairs as federal law enforcement officials coordinate a national manhunt. Now, the amateur e-sleuths’ most bandied-about “suspects” are finding themselves forced to proclaim their innocence. Message boards, meanwhile, are hosting an outbreak of squabbling over whether they’ve fingered the wrong guys, perhaps even creating the next Richard Jewell.
