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!

No I am not sorry I voted for my president. I feel he's doing a great job with what he has to work with. The office was a mess when he got there; and as we know Rome was not built in a day. Given a chance a little cooperation he will make a difference for the betterment of America. If you want a better president, pray for the one you have.

Quoting Dekan09

I trusted Christ as my personal Saviour in 1976. How's that for a response. If you want to write to me do it in a new message.



I accepted christ as my personal Lord and Saviour In 1991 and personally I was just thinking how this is really going no where but you asked the question you got a more than a few responses most of which you ignored, I hope it brought some happiness for you. At least you know how some stand on this issue 'm sure you wont care in fact its a never ending one. Hope you get the responses that you desire may God bless you in your mission.

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. 2 Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
 
By the Lord Jesus Christ.

        AN INTERESTING READ

Mortimer Zuckerman is the Editor in Chief of the U S News and World Report

and was a supporter of Barack Obama during his run for the Presidency.  This

is a staggering appraisal of the President's first year in office- coming

from someone who supported President Obama.

 

In a January 20, 2010 editorial, the Editor in Chief of U.S.  News & World

Report, Mortimer Zuckerman, had this to say: 

 

 

¿Obama¿s ability to connect with voters is what launched him.  But what has

surprised me is how he has failed to connect with the voters since he¿s been

in office.

  

He¿s had so much overexposure.  You have to be selective.  He was doing five

Sunday shows.  How many press conferences?  And now people stop listening to

him¿ He¿s lost his audience.  He has not rallied public opinion.  He has

plunged in the polls more than any other public figure since we¿ve been

using polls.  He¿s done everything wrong.  Well, not everything, but the

major things¿ I don¿t consider it a triumph.  I consider it a disaster.¿ And

that¿s what his friends are saying about him.

  

As the boy president occupied the White House on January

20, 2009 it was predictable that his presidency would last a year, at most,

because the things he promised and the things he stood for were so uniquely

un-American.  Looking back over his year in office, any reasonably

precocious fourth grader could make a cogent argument in opposition to

nearly everything he¿s done.  In fact, his policies have been so extreme and

so far outside the mainstream that he was destined to achieve the most

spectacular fall from grace of any American president in history.  It was

easy to see him serving out the final three years of his term as a virtual

exile in the White House¿ afraid to venture out among any but the most rabid

partisans.

  

Seeing his most ambitious initiative, healthcare reform, die in the flames

of the Massachusetts Massacre, Obama made a hastily-planned ¿sortie¿ to Ohio

for yet another Bush-bashing, self-aggrandizing stump speech on job

creation.  It was vintage Obama¿ full of left wing hyperbole and planted

questions from the Kool- Ade drinkers in the hand-picked audience¿ but there

were just two things wrong with it: 1) Almost everything he said was either

wrong or an outright lie, and 2) He is so overexposed that no one in the

television audience really wanted to see him.

  

Obama Kool-Ade drinkers in the media, and elsewhere, like to describe Obama

as a ¿very bright man, a true intellectual (compared to George W.  Bush and

Sarah Palin, of course).¿ If that is the case, why has he demonstrated such

a great inability to learn from his failures?  The strident words and the

in-your-face attitude of his Ohio speech were proof that he has totally

misread the meaning of the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts.

  

Whatever hopes and dreams he had for his time in the White House, whatever

grandiose plans he had for transforming the United States from a

constitutional republic with a free market economy into a socialist

dictatorship with a centrally planned economy, were all lost on Tuesday,

January 19, 2010¿ one day short of a full year in office.  Yet, he appears

to have learned nothing from the experience.

  

Comedian George Gobel once asked, rhetorically, ¿Did you ever get the

feeling that the world was a tuxedo and you were a pair of brown shoes?¿ In

the context of 21st century American politics, and assuming that he has any

capacity at all for honest self-examination, Obama must be feeling today

very much like a pair of brown shoes at a black tie soiree.

  

When a politically naïve and totally inexperienced young black man, with a

glib tongue and an exceptional ability to read words convincingly from a

teleprompter, announced that he was ready to serve as President of the

United States, liberals and Democrats saw it as a perfect opportunity to

expiate whatever white guilt they may have felt¿ which was apparently

considerable among those on the political left.  It didn¿t seem to bother

them that, as one pundit has remarked, ¿every time he walks into a room he

is the least experienced and the least qualified man in the room.¿

Nevertheless, his friends in the worldwide socialist movement and the

international banking community figured out how to smuggle hundreds of

millions of dollars in illegal campaign funds into the country, the black

community rallied to his banner, and American liberals and the mainstream

media jumped on board the bandwagon.  Together, they made it happen for him.

But now, just one year later, Obama appears destined to become the

unhappiest man in American politics¿ unhappier than even former Senator John

Edwards, who runs a close second, and former president Bill Clinton.

  

Clinton will be the third unhappiest man because, after capturing the big

prize, he frittered away whatever chance he had of ever being compared

favorably with Franklin D.  Roosevelt as one of the 20th century¿s greatest

Democratic presidents.  Not only was he a politician of unusual skill and

insight, he was widely known as a policy ¿wonk¿ among policy wonks and he

had the drive and the personal charm to be loved and respected around the

world.  Unfortunately, he was never able to put the public trust at the top

of his priority list.  Instead, he surrounded himself with a large cadre of

trusted enablers who allowed him to conduct himself as if he were, not the

President of the United States, but the class stud on an extended spring

break in Acapulco.

  

Now that he¿s been out of office for nearly a decade and he¿s married to the

current Secretary of State, he spends his days trying to find something

useful to do without calling an undue amount of attention to himself.

Having lied so shamelessly to the American people, having perjured himself

in a court of law, having turned the Oval Office into a sexual playpen, and

having suffered the humiliation of impeachment, he¿s smart enough to know

that he has little reputation left to protect.  So in order to protect

whatever legacy remains, he walks a tightrope every day¿ and he has many

more years to walk it without falling off.

  

Former Senator John Edwards is destined to be the second unhappiest man in

American politics because he will be known forever as the most thoroughly

despised scumbag in the political arena.  A trial lawyer, Edwards amassed a

$60 million fortune by winning large jury awards against doctors, hospitals,

and corporations.  His specialty was cases in which children were born with

cerebral palsy, which he blamed on doctors who had waited too long to

perform C-sections, a claim that doctors and medical researchers have

described as ¿junk science.¿ Then, like Obama, he decided that his

experience in the courtroom, his glib tongue, and his one term in the U.S.

Senate qualified him to be President of the United States.  He entered the

2004 Democratic presidential primaries, raising an incredible amount of

money for a newcomer to elective office¿ most of it raised illegally by

¿bundlers¿ in plaintiffs¿ law firms across the country.  He was unsuccessful

in his quest for the Democratic nomination but was selected by his Senate

colleague, John Kerry, as his running mate.

 

 Two years later, in 2006, Edwards met a young blonde film producer, Rielle

Hunter, and embarked on a love affair with her.  On February 27, 2008,

Hunter gave birth to a daughter, for whom Edwards has consistently denied

paternity¿ until now.

  

Taking into account that all of this was happening while his wife was waging

a long battle with breast cancer, Edwards now has the well-deserved

reputation of being the sleaziest of the sleazy.  He is so universally

despised that, if he is on the lookout for a friend, he might as well resign

himself to getting a dog¿ or moving in with O.J.

Simpson.  Terry Moran, host of ABC¿s This Week, put it all in perspective.

He said, ¿What¿s interesting to note is that Edwards¿ latest admission (that

he is the father of Hunter¿s child) came while he was in Haiti.  As if the

people of that sad place didn¿t have enough problems.¿ Clearly, the one

thing Clinton and Edwards share that places them near the top of our list is

their sexual peccadilloes, a shortcoming that Obama does not appear to share

with them¿ at least from what we know so far. 

 

What we do know about Obama is that, since his teen years, he has been

mentored by, gravitated toward, and surrounded by the most dangerous sort of

America-hating socialists, communists, and Marxists¿ from Frank Marshall

Davis and Saul Alinsky to Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and

Bernadine Dohrn, to Rev.  Jeremiah Wright, George Soros, and countless

radical left college professors.

  

What destines Obama for the top spot on the list of unhappiest American

politicians¿ aside from the failure of his economic recovery program, the

failure of his radical cap-and-trade proposal, his failed attempt to give

labor bosses unprecedented power to intimidate blue collar workers, and his

ill-fated attempt at healthcare reform¿ is the fact that he carries on his

shoulders the hopes and aspirations of every black child in America.  It is

unfortunate that, because he is so far outside the American mainstream, and

because he carries so much hatred in his heart for the country he seeks to

lead, his failures will be viewed by generations of black children, not as

the failure of a black socialist attempting to bring down a constitutional

republic, but simply as the failure of a black man.

  

A man can fail in the eyes of his countrymen and still be dearly loved by

those closest to him.  But in Obama¿s case, his wife and his two daughters

will be there to suffer every agonizing step of his fall along with him.

And for the rest of his life, each time he looks into their eyes, and into

the eyes of black people everywhere, he will see the crushing disappointment

that his ill-fated attempt at national transformation has caused them.

  

He will be the country¿s unhappiest man, living the rest of his life knowing
