Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

The goal posts were where they have always been.
Obama has submitted only 2 budgets to Congress in 4 years.
Since you want to make a point, how about you answer the post since daveyboy runs away from it every time he has to put some proof up.
You forgot to prove it.
What were the votes for all the budgets Obama submitted to Congress?
... well?????
... dupe.
Dave posted all of them. Then you decided it didn't count if they didn't come to a vote. That's moving the goal line. I'm not in this argument between you and Dave, I'm only pointing out what retarded, lying, scumbags you right wingers are.

Did you just admit the economy was better than t was when Obama took office? I think you did.
If one had three brain tumors and one was removed, some would say they are "better."

Others would say they are still dying.

That is exactly my point. That was the "more important" issue Emanuel was talking about...nationalizing one-sixth of the nation's economy.

Carol,
Since Row v Wade (1973) US has elected Republican Presidents and Republican Congresses. The Supreme Court is Conservative.
Why No action to overturn the decision.

In 1992 President Clinton won because the Republican split their vote between President G H W Bush and Ross Perot.

"The Economy Stupid" was the Democratic Party slogan. Perot elected Clinton?

You’re talking ancient history Carol, after Desert Storm Sadaam Hussien didn’t have either any WMD or the means to deliver them. He was further hampered by “no fly zones” that covered both the northern sector, protecting the Kurd and the southern sector creating a buffer between Iraqi forces and Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. We were in that country for over ten years and didn’t find any WMD. Information about such weapons was fabricated by Ahmed Chalabi an Iranian agent. In the meantime the diversion of personnel to Iraq gave Al Qaeda in Afghanistan enough breathing room to regroup. Our invasion also allowed Al Qaeda to gain a foothold in Iraq something they were never able to do under Sadaam. There were no suicide bombings before the invasion nor was there any sectarian violence or dislocations.
You don’t send troops to die over what someone did in the past or what they might be able to do in the future stupid. You need clear and incontrovertible evidence of imminent danger which the Bush administration wasn’t even close to having.
Plain and simple-
Do you think Iran is making progress with it's nuclear (for electricity in case the oil runs out?) programs? Imagine the field day Saddam would be having with THAT.

If Saddam hadn't invaded Kuwait to START with, we wouldn't have been snarled into Desert Storm.

The height of hypocrisy is a empty headed bagger pretending to really care about our military after subjecting them to two ill advised, ill prepared,lie infected wars and then abondoned them. By now, if not for Obama's drastic actions [with absolutly no help from the republicans] our nation would be in a fully blown depression. NO DOUBT. Still the clueless continue on as if they were guilty of nothing. Someone needs to explain to baggers that ignorance and stupid are not attributes. Attention DB.
if Clinton had cared about our military and not blue dresses, funding his Presidential Library and political correctness, there may not have been a 2nd Attack on the WTC and the 2 subsequent wars (along with 6 other attacks on US interests). Clinton treated the first attack on the World Trade Center like an international shoplifting incident requiring only police activity.

so you are the clueless and 'one of those Americans living in a blissful bubble, oblivious to a world rife with trouble and threats to US security.' In some corners, like Hollywierd for example, American leadership is not only out of fashion, it’s frowned upon and movies depicting the US as the evil aggressor are still used by the left to warp American minds and demean patriotism.

Yes, it is called: Disarming US as wolves lie in wait

Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.— Niels Bohr

In the unknown future of US national-security challenges, safe still beats sorry — especially when those challenges already appear daunting.

Which is why the current defense-spending debate — especially the matter of another $500B in cuts, beyond the 1/2-trillion dollars’ worth already being lopped off — may be as consequential as any budget decision in recent history.

That’s right: The choices we make about the defense budget, including future weapon systems and troop levels, are fateful; the results will be with us for decades.

Pentagon officials have warned of elevated risks, worried that we’ll no longer be the global power we are today if another $500B is slashed from the defense budget, as is planned for year’s end.

Yet some Americans seem to be living in a blissful bubble, oblivious to a world rife with trouble and threats to US security. In some corners, American leadership is not only out of fashion, it’s frowned upon.

But such naivete won’t deal with current problems or prevent crises in the coming years.

Take the Middle East/North Africa. The Iranian threat is hardly diminishing. Few would dispute that Tehran will not only have nukes in a few years, but an intercontinental-ballistic missile to carry them.

Lawless, ungoverned spaces in Yemen and Somalia support the aspirations and activities of terror groups such as al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and al Shabab. Al Qaeda in Iraq is active again and maybe aiding and abetting terror in Syria.
Syria itself? The Assad regime’s survival will certainly find Damascus committed to revenge — and even more wedded to its drive for the bomb.

The promise of an “Arab Spring” has become the reality of an “Arab Winter,” with Egypt, Tunisia and Libya of continuing concern (thanks, especially, to reports of thousands of handheld, surface-to-air missiles missing from Libyan arsenals).

Elsewhere, stability in Afghanistan after our 2014 departure is an open question. A likely security vacuum could leave it vulnerable to the re-rise of the Taliban, al Qaeda and their allies.

Instability in (nuclear) Pakistan is good reason for insomnia.

Meanwhile, TEAM OBAMA'S strategic shift to Asia will be more of a DAINTY PIROUETTE than a muscular pivot, absent the forces needed to project US power across the Pacific.

With the military might it’s amassing, Beijing is developing the raw power to challenge Washington for pre-eminence in East Asia — and, perhaps, beyond.

Then there’s North Korea. Not good. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says,“We’re within an inch of war everyday in that part of the world.”

There’s more. You have to wonder, i.e. whether perceptions of US decline made the Russian chief of the general staff think it was OK recently to threaten to pre-emptively strike American missile defenses in Europe.

A world without a strong America is deeply disquieting, one where US interests will be under assault from a number of different directions, including cyberspace.

Fact is, as Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) noted last week at The Heritage Foundation,“We don’t always have the luxury of deciding where and when we will have to confront evil in the world.” The 3 a.m. phone call is a come-as-you-are affair; we better be ready.

Thankfully, some in Congress such as Kyl and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are working to stem America’s slide to 2nd-rate-power status by finding ways to trim the federal budget that shift the heavy reliance away from defense-spending cuts.

This is no time to give short shrift to American security. We need a hard-nosed foreign policy backed up by a strong defense. The past shows the painful consequences of being weak and ill-prepared.

Threats will develop irrespective of our ability to defend ourselves. Wishful thinking about a future no one can accurately predict is no foundation for a national-security policy.
