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

America, let's make the sonofabitch ecstatic in November! LOL
Well, Chicago is, after all, a wonderful place to call home...if you don't get shot in the crossfire of violence in the streets because of high unemployment and a failed education system and ignore it's the most politically corrupt city in the nation.

But otherwise, it's home sweet home to our president.

Carol,quit being such a frickin idiot.
If "both Parties" created it, why aren't you blaming both parties for not fixing it.
For the umpteenth time, the priority was the economy as the stimulus plan was passed in feb of 09.
How come the Republican priority was wining the White House instead of the economy (McConnell)? Carol, well. Got an answer???? Didn't think so.
I HAVE blamed both parties...repeatedly. But I never hear a peep about blaming anyone else but republicans on your side.

The stimulus was a failure with very little to show for what it is costing the taxpayers and the minimal amount of jobs that resulted.

Obamacare and Solyndra are two other failed biggies.

So why won't Obamacare kick in until after the president is - or isn't - reelected? Maybe I missed your answer.

Well, I'm not sure he is from Chicago. I'm not sure he was born in Hawaii. I'm not sure he graduated from Columbia University. I'm not sure he is Christian. I'm not sure he knows how many states there are in the Union. I'm not sure he isn't a member of the New Black Panther Party. I'm not sure he is capable of telling the truth. I'm not sure he's not out to destroy the US Constitution.

I am sure he will not win re-election!

Romney’s Syria Problem

His support for “opposition groups” is misplaced.

Congratulations to Mitt Romney. In calling for “opposition groups” to be armed and trained for their ongoing jihad against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, the GOP’s presidential contender has managed to align himself with al-Qaeda emir Ayman al-Zawahiri and Muslim Brotherhood icon Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

Finally you are right about something, "Obama is on record"
He's on record: for record deficits, for record debt increase, for record food stamp expansion, for record unemployment length, for record Washington partisan politics, for record porkulus etc,etc.
He's afraid to run for re-election on his record. Many of his fellow Democrats running for office distance themselves from his record. Have you noticed how the Wisconsin Democrats didn't even try to get him to campaign there for Barrett.
Did you mention his record for being the most derisive president? Or does that fall under his "record for Washington partisan politics"? His record becomes blurred sometimes.

"Donald Trump's request for Obama's birth certificate (or his college transcripts, for that matter) are only the most ludicrous and high-profile versions of the kind of "let me see your license" bullshit that African Americans have to put up with every day. And Romney's bland acceptance of Trump's mercenary bullying is the birthright – the license, if you will – of someone whose real privilege is never having to worry about what other people think."

Can't go along with you on all points. However, he clearly doesn't understand what makes America tick. His agenda is party-line based instead of what is good for the country. His prominent influences were questionably anti-American and he did say the Constitution was flawed so, therefore, I agree the nation was hijacked in 2008 by the mysterious powers that be with Obama as their carefully selected front man.

But I've been saying that since day 1.

Remember when Bush "simplified" the tax code? Something like 2000 pages of relentless simplification.
Why didn't they do it during their last three ascensions?
Because we weren't at a crucial crossroads of sinking or swimming. Big changes happen when survival becomes part of the equation.

Alan Korwin, Scottsdale Gun-Law Author, Says "Birther" Is the "New 'N' Word"

"'Birther,' used by the media with impunity, is a derogatory slur, the equivalent of the 'N' word used for another group to cast them as sub-human," Korwin writes. "You apply this new 'N' word to a huge group of politically-active Americans who've raised legitimate questions on a legitimate topic."

It's not like being a birther is a choice, it's something you're born into, right?

You're a liar.
Parents have all the freedom to make choices about their children's education they want. What you're asking is for me to pay for parents to take their children out of the public school system and put them into religious indoctrination institutions.
You can send you're kids to bible school all you want just don't ask me to pay for it, paying for the failed public school system is bad enough.
Now, apologize to the baby Jesus for lying and go loofa your stretch marks.
If a parent wants to put their children in a "religious indoctrination institution" where they might get a real education, you're darn tootin' I want you to help pay for that education.

Since I have to pay for your "abortion institution", let's just call it tit for tat.

He was in a couple of the first republican debates if I remember correctly. He was given maybe one or two token questions but basically ignore. He had doable solutions to our problems. Which is why the media covered him up.

A significant segment of the voting population can't even identify a picture of the vice-president.

And you think they're going to research an elusive libertarian candidate? What does Gary Johnson look like? I wouldn't know him if I tripped over him.

Liberals just don't understand the economy. When the economy grows and businesses are created and not punished for success, everyone benefits. Job creation follows a robust, business friendly environment.
Obama has created an anemic economy that is antagonistic toward success in every way possible. He doesn't seek an equal playing field, but equal outcomes. In Obama's world, the slacker should live just as well as the person who works 60 hours a week, goes to school, starts his own business, and makes a lot of money in the process. It is illogical.
Capitalism is the best system in the world. No other system provides as many benefits to more people. As Winston Churchill said, "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries." The former is far superior.
What you fail to understand is we no longer have a Capitalist system. It's a butchered variety and the playing field is not level.

You're sounding more like Hillary "vast rightwing conspiracy" Clinton every day.
