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 ...

Blame Bush? Pathetic. America is sick of excuses.

The Kenyan Impostor's communist coup has been an abject failure.

ps

Operation Wide Receiver ended in 2009 and was restarted as F&F by the Kenyan and his pimp Holder to undermine the 2nd Amendment. America gets it.

What is 'conservative'?

Edmund Burke: Conservatism is not so much a philosophy as an attitude, a constant force, performing a timeless function in the development of a free society, and corresponding to a deep and permanent requirement of human nature itself.

Back to Burke

"....the latter-day right possesses what Michel Chevalier called the morale of an army on the march: no time for reflection, no room for dissent, there are liberals to vanquish.

Nine years ago The American Conservative took its stand athwart this mentality. From the beginning, the magazine reclaimed conservatism’s discarded patrimony while reaching out for new ground as well. Within the first three months, thinkers as disparate as diplomatic historian Paul Schroeder and Norman Mailer—a sometime “left conservative”—had graced these pages.

TAC is not libertarian or what was once called “paleoconservative.” It aspires to be conservative as Burke was, broad-minded but firmly rooted, with an emphasis on securing peace and a well-grounded liberty at home. One of our themes has been the local, not as an “-ism” but as the texture and matrix of civil life, urban as well as rural. The recovery of political economy too, in the face of liberal and neoliberal dogmas alike, is part of this.(The muse is Jane Jacobs, not Ayn Rand.)

For over 20 years conservatives have been denied their name and heritage, fobbed off with the counterfeit goods of partisanship and neoconservative ideology. Today the plight of the country is too grave to accept any substitutes; it’s time for conservatives once more to speak in their own voice."
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

William F. Buckley Jr.: You know, I’ve spent my entire life time separating the Right from the kooks.

And no, the current crop of FOXbot conservatives are not 'the Right'. They don't even know what the word means.

"Burke demanded civil liberty—“a liberal and honourable condition”—for them anyway. He was not oblivious to minority dangers, nor indifferent to public orthodoxy. But who can imagine him alongside such Islam-baiters as Herman Cain or Pamela Geller, shouting about Sharia or boasting of plans to exclude an unpopular minority from public office?

A great imposture has taken place. Whatever else the likes of Cain or Geller may be, if Burke is a conservative, they are not."

Buckley Bows Out of National Review

Christopher Buckley, in an exclusive for The Daily Beast, explains why he left The National Review, the magazine his father founded.

"So, I have been effectively fatwahed (is that how you spell it?) by the conservative movement, and the magazine that my father founded must now distance itself from me. But then, conservatives have always had a bit of trouble with the concept of diversity. The GOP likes to say it’s a big-tent. Looks more like a yurt to me.

While I regret this development, I am not in mourning, for I no longer have any clear idea what, exactly, the modern conservative movement stands for. Eight years of “conservative” government has brought us a doubled national debt, ruinous expansion of entitlement programs, bridges to nowhere, poster boy Jack Abramoff and an ill-premised, ill-waged war conducted by politicians of breathtaking arrogance. As a sideshow, it brought us a truly obscene attempt at federal intervention in the Terry Schiavo case.

So, to paraphrase a real conservative, Ronald Reagan: I haven’t left the Republican Party. It left me."

Communists murdered 200 million people in the 20th century to impose their rule. Famine is a favored tactic to impose state control.

Food stamp president? Coincidence?

What is communism?

In modern usage, the word "communism" is still often used to refer to the policies of self-declared socialist governments comprising one-party states which were single legal political party systems operating under centrally planned economies and a state ownership of the means of production, with the state, in turn, claiming that it represented the interests of the working classes

<quoted text>
Their philosophy is -
The American Conservative magazine, which since 2002 has argued vigorously against American interventionism, against a debt-based fiscal policy used to finance adventurism abroad and government growth at home, and against the intrusions on Americans’ private lives by an exploding state security apparatus.
Find me one article that supports this philosophy. Instead you have a mixed jumble of opinions from a variety of backgrounds none in journalism or Political Science. The editor is a physicist. The author you love is an Orthodox minister. Many of the articles are poorly written and having a concise viewpoint maintained within in an article appears to be optional.
The National Security State Wins Again

"Indeed, with respect to the national security complex, candidate Romney already comes across like Edward G. Robinson’s Johnny Rocco in the classic film Key Largo: he knows he wants one thing, and that thing is more. More ships for the Navy. More planes for the Air Force. More troops in general — perhaps 100,000 more. And much more spending on national defense.

Clearly, come November, whoever wins or loses, the national security state will be the true victor in the presidential sweepstakes.

Of course, the election cycle alone is hardly responsible for our national love of weaponry and war. Even in today’s straitened fiscal climate, with all the talk of government austerity, Congress feels obliged to trump an already generous president by adding yet more money for military appropriations. Ever since the attacks of 9/11, surging defense budgets, forever war, and fear-mongering have become omnipresent features of our national landscape, together with pro-military celebrations that elevate our warriors and warfighters to hero status. In fact, the uneasier Americans grow when it comes to the economy and signs of national decline, the more breathlessly we praise our military and its image of overwhelming power. Neither Obama nor Romney show any sign of challenging this celebratory global “lock and load” mentality."
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

Just because they don't always hold with the new radical 'conservatism' it sure doesn't make them less concise to an intellect. But now a FOXbot would be slightly confused; if you aren't speaking the hate language of Limbaugh then you must not be a conservative. As will be so aptly demonstrated on this forum as soon as one of you wingnuts replies to this post.

"A year ago, when everyone, including the man I’m about to endorse, was caterwauling to get out of Iraq on the next available flight, John McCain, practically alone, said no, no—bad move. Surge. It seemed a suicidal position to take, an act of political bravery of the kind you don’t see a whole lot of anymore.

But that was—sigh—then. John McCain has changed. He said, famously, apropos the Republican debacle post-1994,“We came to Washington to change it, and Washington changed us.” This campaign has changed John McCain. It has made him inauthentic. A once-first class temperament has become irascible and snarly; his positions change, and lack coherence; he makes unrealistic promises, such as balancing the federal budget “by the end of my first term.” Who, really, believes that? Then there was the self-dramatizing and feckless suspension of his campaign over the financial crisis. His ninth-inning attack ads are mean-spirited and pointless. And finally, not to belabor it, there was the Palin nomination. What on earth can he have been thinking?"

He didn't vote for Obama because he wanted to. He voted for Obama because he had no choice.

One of the major issues of 2008 was Heath Care reform .This is a life and death issue.Democrats won in a landslide on it. It is also major economic issue for business and our country.
If HCR gets overturned it will be clearly because republicans overturned it. in the past they could lie and say Hillary and Bill failed and stupid morons would believe it.
they can't say Obama and the dems failed anymore. They succeeded and the republicans detroyed it. Republicans will own the issue now.
It's their baby and they will be blamed for the chaos and misery that will ensue.

Before the president’s announcement on Friday, Mark Rubio had been working on a plan to give children of illegal immigrants the chance to gain some sort of legal status. He talked about it in a CNN interview before the president made his big announcement.
“This White House didn’t reach out to anybody,” Mr. Rubio said.“If you are really serious about finding a solution to this problem, don’t you work with the people who are interested in this? If you are really interested in a bipartisan solution, and you read in the newspaper that there is a Republican senator working on an idea, don’t you reach out to them and say,‘How does your idea work? I’m just curious.’ That never happened.”
...There's nothing transparent about this president except he will do or say anything to get reelected. Instead of working in a bipartisan manner and getting the support of Congress, he mandates from his imaginary throne, takes an issue and uses it as a political gimmick for personal political gain and then takes all the credit.
Obama has to go. He's becoming an embarrassment.
Yeah, so Rubio says he’s working on a plan which he hadn’t even submitted to Congress yet. Talk is cheap. How many times does Obama have to reach out his hand to the Republicans just to get it bitten again? The Republicans aren’t going to work with the president on anything.
People like you are the embarrassment Carol.
