Wow!!! Hoping4Love you win the Fox News watcher of the year. Let's start with the most misused word by the right wing....

 

Socialism...defined by Merriam-Webster:

 

 

a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies.

 

We are the least socialist nation in the world. Period. We are far less regulated than any other major industrial nation in the world. Period. By comparison, we were far more socialistic under President Reagan than President Obama. Need I really remind you of Superfund, Glass-Steagall, Amnesty, Brady Bill, et.al.?

 

Wow!!! We really do live in the dark ages where blind faith answers all questions no matter what reality demonstrates.

Quoting 3345roc

 

"I think historians will be kinder.  The only thing that will distinguish his 8 years is that he was the first black elected President.... nothing more."

 

The only value of a blog is to exchange ideas, opinions, and observations that encourage thoughtful discussion. Any thing less is a waste of everyone's time. Sir you obviously have an opinion about our current President. It would be illuminating if you offered a shred of support for your diatribe. You may disagree with my comments or the comments of others, but at least we itemize the facts that support our opinions. The idea that President Obama will only be remembered as the first Black President is either hideously ignorant or maliciously dishonest.  Did you forget the condition of the country when he took office in January 2009? I won't repeat the facts i have already laid out in two posts on this blog. I will just remind you that by comparison to his predecessor, no notable historian includes President Obama in the discussion of the worst President in history. So please do us all a favor and support your opinion or let it stand as the most vapid comment on MM.

It's sad to see so many people who possibly ARE educated, do not hold enough COMMON SENSE in their heads to recognize a SOCIALIST CALL when we are living one, NOW...

 

TAKE AWAY OUR GUNS

TAKE AWAY OUR HEALTH CARE

TAKE AWAY OUR RELIGION

OUR HOLIDAYS.....

EVEN OUR LIGHT BULBS!!!!

 

As a mother, when my children were very young, I would only grant them two choices of what to wear to school. They were INCAPABLE to have a closet filled with CHOICES... They were of "small minds..." 

 

Kind of unbelievable some people can't see we are being treated like we have "small minds" and are being left with little choices. 

 

I suppose the people who can't see the "SOCIALISM CALL" must have "small minds." 

 

I don't care what color our "Commaner in Chief" is... and at this point, even if it be a woman...

I just want someone who recognizes the LAST thing a country EVER needs to do is MINIMIZE OUR MILITARY. 

 

BAD MOVE!!!

And if a person can't see this... 

Well, that in itself, makes them PART OF THE PROBLEM. 

 

HI DEKAN AND ALL----

I was merely saying that when historians talk about President Obama and his time in the White House they will not be kind. How's that for clarity?

You're correct leonicvirgo history will state the facts! And it won't be kind to the president. I don't try to wow people with big words. I"m a simple person who is concerned with what this man is doing to our country. Oh no history will not be kind.

Seem's, I have more fact's than your network is willing to injest. The Truth Hurts. I served it cold, and hard. I did that for a reason! I do take exeption to you demonizing this President. He has been called every name FDR was called. FDR had detractors to his vision of lifting the US out of a Great Depression. The 10 years, from the crash of 1929, yielded a slow economy. What did you think would happen with the Sept. surprise of 2008? You may want to go back to Rule the Financial World 301, or maybe 491...That's the top 500 NY Lawyers making Worldwide Deals,as you march along with your lives. My facts are undisputed, to this point. Care to weigh in? No! No is what we've heard for 6 years. Obama warned everyone, post Nation Shutdown( 15% Nation Shutdown)...In the Fall.

 

It is good that the Republican Party, learn the art of making the balanced wine, of this American Society, instead of souring the grapes, for Basalmic Vinegar Outcomes. Can you stand the bitters of the next 10 years, without altering your Political course? I doubt it.

 

Churchill withstood the bitters. Every Leader does. History will be much wiser than this blog. History rely's on FACT!

And so the other shoe drops. Your own words speak for themselves. And so do mine. I do not idolize President Obama. I afford him the same respect I give every President. I served in the military during the Reagan administration. I agree with President Obama that President Reagan was the last transformative President. Yet even with great Presidents, catastrophic failures occur...lest we forget the 241 Marines killed during a terrorist attack in Beirut in 1983; Or selling arms to Iranian terrorists in order to fund the Contras in 1985. And it would appear you have forgotten when we were attacked by terriorists in the US...1993 (first World Trade Center bombing) and 2001 (9/11); neither occured since 2009 when President Obama took office. What has occured since 2009 is the terrorists who attacked us have been brought to the justice they deserved; Gaddafi is dead; The economic meltdown born under the previous administration has been averted; Healthcare reform that every American President since Harry Truman has wanted to impliment has become law; GM is once again the world's largest auto manufacturer; Every major financial institution has filed living wills with the US Treasury that will advise the government how to liquidate in the event of institutional failure without hurting the broader economy; The Federal Budget deficit has declined every years since President Obama's first budget in 2009-10 (President Bush had the exact opposite budgetary record); The number of federal employees has dramatically dropped (versus the proliferation of government employees under President W Bush). The world remains a complex and dangerous place, but at least we have a President who speaks softly and carries a big stick (forgive the pun!).

Hello...I got an email from another person who sounded very much like you. I can't believe that 5 years after I wrote this initial blog I'm still getting responses. I dislike the president's policies and I find myself not agreeing with much of what he's done thus far. I'm going to be very blunt. I am considered a "nigger" love because I date and prefer black men. I am not a racist by any stretch of the imignation. So you cannot call me a racist. I do not care what color your skin is. I am and nor will I never be "politically correct". If you can't deal with what my opinions are...oh well deal with it! I won't force to you agree with me. Nor will I kill you! If you don't like what I have to say..move on. Don't make me change my way of living or thinking to appease you and I'll not do that either.

 

I do thank you for serving our country. I work and live on a military base and I know the hardships and sacrifices and your family go through. I pray for our warriors everyday several times a day. I have lost friends to the wars. I have friends who've been deployed 4 and 5 times but they are willing to go because they want to keep our country free.

 

Just in case you are the same person who sent me the email under another name...here is my response.

 

The bastards in GITMO should have been killed on the battle field!  We were safe during the Reagan years. Did anyone attach us then? HELL NO! Because those bastards knew the USA would wipe their ass out! We had an ally in Britain in Lady Thatcher! You fuck with the US we're coming after you!.Hell we bombed Libya and we didn't hear from them in 25 years! Mortgage problems because Clinton thought every American had a right to a house! Are you kidding me? If you can't afford to pay the mortgage you don't get one! What the hell is so hard to understand????? Every politician is corrupt! All they are interested in is staying in power! I don't give a shit what side of the isle you're on! And those illegals you're loving so much...they send their money home! Why do you freaking come to America? According the Associate Press deportation is down 20%!
And as far as Benghazi, I'll take the word of those who fought and lost friend over Hillary  Clinton any day of the week! Look at how she covered for Billy all those years!  Evidently we're watching different news channels huh?
 
The president almost had me with the speech on Wednesday until I heard him say...the core of his presidency was to keep America safe. Really???? Why is then that we can't build a fence? And Gutierrez?What a joke he is. If his country was so great why is he pushing for amnesty so hard? Extremists on either side are bad. 
I believe in our Constitution.'If you a man or woman who doesn't agree with that who runs for office in the great nation should not run. You need to go to another country who has beliefs like you.

Quoting Dekan09:

Our Constitution needs to remain just as it was written. I don't have time to write more because if I do I will be late for work. Thanks for taking time to respond.

I like Ronald Reagan Quotes. Obama is in his 6th year of Presidency, and there is irony in comparison. Reagan was suffering through a Thrift Crisis, which stifled the Recession economy. He spent a trillion on ,"StarWars.

Obama was handed a Severe Recession, Before he was Voted in, with the Mortgage Banking Conspiracy...With 2 Theatres (Now 3+ Urban) of action...Including the Russian Bear. " Tear Down This Wall!". does not mix well with mass corruption. No one can dispute the Constitutional aspects of his decisions( Directives). He deports more illegals, than any in the past 4 Presidents. If you need 400,000 Fruit&Vegetable pickers, and, you cut that to 100,000, Migration Occurs. These Illegals are a moving population; prone to capture by INS sweeps. The fruit rots.

Obamas handleing of what, specific'ly, do you greive him for? How can you knock a President that has economic engines up to 4.2. These residuals are creating an impressive Surplus; beyond the Buy-In to the, "Too Big To Fail",2008 Mechonium Bush Splash: Surplused, when the American People, Sold their share's for Profit...Including GM. Bengazi happened, due to Congressional Limitations of State Department Budget. Bet, they have the money, Now. Yep! Blame it on Hillary. Hillary sent you back to Congress. Obamas fault...Go Figure!

 

 

obama is a Leo, and a Family FirstHybridPresident, though, if you looked at the Cousin Intermingling, The BlueBlood roots would show. I'm sort of Pragmatic, when addressing the continuous cow patty spots in the barnyard. You know, some of those premium Patties are shipped to all 50 states. YEP! BS went up in price...SOOooo...2016?

 

Obama has abolished borders of Countries. We should be figuring repurcussions of this Sorte'd move; including, the Intelligence Alerts. We all make choices in our lives,and find paths of continuity to walk. These American's treasoned themselves, by training to fight actions opposed to the US...Then,want to come back. Where will the POW Camps be established, over there? What happens to the GITMO150? Are we ready for a Woman President?

 

Can the world stamp out these Fanatic Trouble spots.

Can the world stamp out Ebola, Hunger, Whatnot

The village proclaims

Shifts in the rain

May the world stamp out Compost the Rot!

And Thats the way it is,folks...Friday91214.5219...This is...(Intergalactic Walter Cronkite). Now, how bad is Obama?   B-)///*LV1*\\\:)

Oh well, 1984 it is.

 

No, I'm not sorry I voted twice for President Obama. And the thing is, I'm not alone. 120 million Americans voted in 2008. 130 million Americans voted in 2012. Neither election was close. As for the popular vote, President Obama won by over 5 million votes each time. Electorally, he won twice in a landslide. As for geographical diversity, the President won Virginia (twice), North Carolina (once), Nevada (twice), Colorado (twice), Ohio (twice), Florida (twice)...I could go on. President Reagan was the last President elected with as much geographical diversity. On the merits, President Obama ran in 2008 on a platform of ending the war in Iraq (accomplished), healthcare reform (accomplished), financial reform(accomplished), turning around the cratering economy (lest we forget GDP collapsed 9% in 4th quarter 2008; accomplished), bringing Bin Laden to justice (accomplished), immigration reform (failed), national energy policy (failed),  and unifying government (failed). Like all Presidents (yes even my Commander in Chief, President Reagan), President Obama had some powerful failures (Benghazi, government shutdowns, ISIS), but notwithstanding the hyperbolic vitriol, his accomplishments are laudable in the face of absolute political intransigence.

 

The thing I find most disturbing about the primary criticisms of President Obama is that it comes from people who are vigorous supporters of Presidents Reagan and W Bush. President Reagan was a great President because he was able to separate the harsh competitiveness of political campaigning from the practical realities of effective governance. President Reagan worked very well with Liberal Lion, Tip O'Neill (then Speaker of the House), to end the Cold War peacefully, revive Social Security for generations, pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform (yes, Amnesty), and so much more. Even President Obama credits President Reagan as the last transformative President, much to the chagrin of President Clinton. For those supporters of President W Bush, history is already recording him as the first US President to lead us into war (Iraq) for reasons proven to be untrue (I'm sure some of you will argue the Gulf of Tonkin but we had been fighting in Vietnam for years prior to this escalation). As a US Army veteran, I can not imagine a worse mistake for a President to make. Thousands of US servicemembers died in Iraq for what? They did not attack us on 9/11. They did not have the capability of imminent attack against the USA. Iraq was not used as a base of attack against US targets. They were far less a threat against the USA than North Korea or Iran. President HW Bush and the War College warned us in the late 1990's of the dangers of removing Saddam Hussein (remember General Powell's Pottery Barn comment.."you break it, you own it"?). And yet, President W Bush leaves office claiming he has no regrets for his decision to attack Iraq. Let me be plain, it was the President's decision alone. Congress gave President W Bush the authority he asked for...to wage war on those who attacked us on 9/11. It was up to the President to identify the specific enemies of the USA. He chose Iraq. And he was wrong.

 

For you deficit hawks out there, where were you when conservatives in name only passed Medicare Part D, two huge tax cuts (with no spending offsets), and financed the two longest wars in US history...all on the national credit card? And so we are clear, President Obama's first budget started October 1st, 2009. He had to live with President W Bush's last budget for the first nine months of his Presidency (just like every President before him).

 

For you believers in small, efficient government, it was conservatives in name only who responded to 9/11 by creating the massive, over bloated Homeland Security Administration...effectively destroying FEMA by burying it under a mountain of red tape. Compare the Northridge Earthquake (President Clinton) and Hurricane Andrew (President HW Bush) FEMA responses to Hurricane Katrina, where for the first time since the Dust Bowl of the 1930's we had thousands of America refugees. And by the way, Northridge and Andrew were our two previous largest natural disasters before Katrina.

 

In sum, President Obama is not perfect by any stretch of the even my imagination, but he is a far more effective and successful President than his predecessor (of course the bar is very low). History will be far kinder to him for his service to our country.

2 years later I'm so happy to see that my blog is still being read. Pat and I have discussed this many many times. I've been called a racist and lots of other not so nice names because of posting this. I just happen to love my country and after reading and doing research on the president I was scared to death at what I found. Yes I'm a member of our local tea party and have found myself in our nations capital many times over the last couple years and even in Harrisburg our state's capital on the steps. Nothing will be solved sitting on your ass and not taking it to them. What I am very concerned and pissed about are the Republicans bad mouthing the tea party and our love of country and Constitution. We are not growing tired we have more of a battle now than ever! Our country cannot withstand another term of this socialist America hating president.

Michelle Obama may be having 2nd thoughts. The President just kicked her and their daughters off the vacation they were planning to the Far East over Easter. Seems he decided that it was in poor taste to go on a family vacation while unemployment is ruuning rampant and health care reform is on life support. At last; something I can agree with him about....

When I make a comment it will be in pink above the person who wrote to me. So I didn't think I had to explain who I was referring to. But that seems to have caused a stir so I will address the person to whom my remark is being directed to Pat.

I do pray for President Obama and Congress and our governor in Pennsylvania. Did you watch any of the health summit yesterday? I could not believe when he said to Sen. McCain "John the campaign is over". I went nuts. Has he ever listened to himself? Everytime he opens his mouth it's a speech from the campaign trail. He's on such an ego trip he'd not recognize that.

Thanks for taking time to check out my blog. Have a great weekend!
