Obama Middle East Speech Covers Arab Spring, Need For Reform In Region (VIDEO)


Obama please never play a game of poker your bluff sucks. I have been a supporter of Obama and the Democrats all of my life 38 total years to date. But I have to say Obama is about as weak a President as we have had in the last 30 years since Jimmy Carter. Sadly Obama is not the elder statesmen that Carter is.

We as people could care less if a bunch of Arabs and Muslims go down in a ball of flames. Forgiving the Egyptian debt is a joke like they will spend it on what the United States wants. So basically we forgive a billion then give them another billion to be forgiven later. It is no wonder every country comes back to us wanting money. We never collect on debt, what example is that to the banks or the people of the United States.

This entire Israel and Palastine issue is a joke cut off support to both of them. Give them not a dime and see how long till both of them are back at the table willing to do anything for funding. Stop all the arms shipments to Israel. If you put the Israelis backs to the wall they will cave on many things. But again Obama is to weak to do such a thing it is not democratic or in the best interests of the United States. What interest do we really have in the region other then OIL.

John Boehner Stuck Between Tea Party And A Hard Place


This is a scary propositio­n to many devoid of party affiliatio­n. The Tea Party people are ill-inform­ed on the actual economic let alone social issues that would arise if $100 billion was actually cut from a budget. The divide in America is just going to grow wider if this group gets it’s way. With a divide that is so wide it will have the opposite effect that anyone wants. With a fragmented or blown up Republican party all that will happen is the strengthen­ing of the Democratic and Independen­t parties.

I am most surprised that the Democratic party has not seen some soft of group that is out to counter the Tea Party. Or is it that the Democrats like many of the establishm­ent Republican­s look at this rag tag group as a bunch of ill-inform­ed hate filled individual­s that joined a support group to voice their rants. The Democrats do have a much more establishe­d grass roots organizati­on that has proven to me more effective then the Republican­s by far.

The actual scary part is if any of these Tea Baggers where really able to gain a decent amount of control our country would be tied in knots for years unable to fun. With no budgets to work from essentiall­y shutting down the Government and the Country.

Jon Stewart To Bill O’Reilly: I’d Vote For A Republican, Against Obama (VIDEO)


JS is hard to follow some times he is so far left that even myself a left wing democrat think he is a bit over the top. Reality is that the Republican party has no one that can step up to the plate that is going to have more then a fairy tale chance. The recycled candidates they seem to keep coming up with are old and tired. The youth of the party is just not seasoned enough for the old fogies of the party ( the real money men) Then you have an agenda that is not going over well as a hole. Family values is a joke, education is a joke for them, even working on the economy is really something they don’t do well. So that leaves them with typical fair such as Abortion rights gun control and other ideals. The more the party steps away from the economy the more the American public wants to skin them.
So where does this leave the Republican­s in shambles in reality over the course of the next 2 years. By the time the elections are here the people will be wanting their heads on a platter!

Arnold Schwarzenegger Fathered A Child With Member Of Household Staff


WOW this just keeps getting better and better. Arnie is really showing he is a true Republican kids out of wedlock with the help. I wonder if she is an illegal Hispanic too? How many more will there be? Could this guy look any more like a complete buffoon and to think I lived in California at the time he was elected to office he was horrid as a governor. At least we now know what he was doing rather then helping the state he was procreatin­g with the help.

I hope Maria finally realizes she is with a POS and dumbs him for the world to see. This is no way for anyone associated with the Kennedy family to act.

Senate GOP Votes Down Bill To End Big Oil Subsidies


Sounds like it is time for the American public to get out our voter cards. Keep those names on file for reelection time and vote the trash our of office.
This is not surprising at all but surly disappoint­ing but it has gone beyond common sense let alone for the good of the people. Our Elected Officials must know we will not stand ideally by while they defraud us any longer.

As U.S. Military Exits Iraq, Contractors To Enter

Interesting instead of troops we are going to pay for contracts. So that still means our tax dollars are paying for a fighting force/protection force in Iraq. How is that pulling out? Isn’t pulling out meaning no one left behind the big exit? Do we even care in the first place, not like Iraq will not go into civil unrest with in weeks or months of the United States pulling out.
Is this some sort of good consciousness deal that we must fix the country and leave it in better shape then we found it? I honestly could care less at this point just bring the troops home so more don’t die for a needless cause. If we want the oil that should be a pretty simple process and one we have been doing for years, just does not show out our gas pumps? This is a State Department deal here so why are diplomats and so forth even going back into Iraq once we leave not like we need to be in country any more. If the Iraq’s have not figured it out yet they never will.

Here is the full article that is from NPR:

Should Adultery in a candidate’s past matter to voters?

Today CNN ran a poll asking: Should Adultery in a candidate’s past matter to voters?

When I voted no the results where Yes 70% and No 30% by some dramatic amount of voters.

In voting no to me I could care less what someone’s sexual habits are let alone their sexual orientation. Will his make for better decisions when in office no. Does it lend to character not really. All it really tells you is that they are human and have human issues that they deal with. The average marriage last just 11 years as of 2005 numbers those numbers get even smaller the younger you go. Wikipedia gives a 20% chance of divorce in the first 5 years these numbers are again from 2005. As the years click by those numbers are only getting larger and closer together. We in the US look at divorce as really no big deal especially with the advent of the no fault divorce taking effect in 1969 in California and thus spreading nation wide. How many of those divorces where from cheating or cheating taken place but was never divulged are probably astronomical.

I guess to some people if you cheat you’re of a weak mind or the church looks at you, as you’re a sinner. Well being non religious I could care less a piece of ass is a piece of ass. Not like marriage is not the ultimate way of paying for some ass.

To me looking at who is running for office is a much more in depth process then if some one has cheated. As my list of concerns for a candidate goes cheating is probably close to the bottom. One of my top concerns is first amendment issue, the right to bear arms, abortion and many other ideals we as Americans enjoy. The ever shrinking privacy issues is going to becoming even more of a hot button issue.

I would like to hear a candidate’s actual road map for fixing issues and how they plan to go about it. We all know elected officals really have little power as a single entity. But as groups they do have power groups can be as small as 4-10 elected officials. Candidate’s plans for how to work with the other side of aisle is very important to me fighting is getting no one anywhere. Being negative is about as dumb as the candidate can get. Slamming the opposition is really just showing the candidate is not bright so they have little to offer. If the candidate actually told us what they stood for plus how they intended to fix issues we as the general public would probably become much more into the election process. Sadly in America we have let the election process become more of a circus then anything else.

In the last year since Republicans have taken control of the House and the Senate we have seen a complete lack of respect for anyone. We have individuals such as Mitch McConnell that really are a bigger obstacle then they are anything else. We have the John McCain’s of the world that seem to not know what they stand for any more have sold out their entire legacy and ideals for something, even though I am not sure what. Take fact finding mission on subjects that have been beaten to death using tax payers money.

As you look over what we past and current candidates did Bill Clinton getting a BJ from Monica Lewinsky really make a difference? No of course not he is still considered one of our best Presidents of the last 100 years. We the voting public really don’t know anything I would bet that if you asked most x presidents if they had cheated a good deal would tell stories of getting some in the Oval Office. Sadly the people in the office would rather make a big deal of Clinton when he got his BJ then an actual agenda that mattered. Newt Gingrich will never reach the Oval Office due to be a ringleader in this matter. Indiscretions happen so what as long as it is not illegal who cares. If some one comes out as gay who cares sees a hooker because his wife is not there or whatever the reason is. We in America are more into tearing some one apart then anything else. It is that candidates personal business to be handled behind close doors with their significant other.

What gets me the most of all this is candidates any more will not stand up for their true believes and stick to them no matter what. Once elected officials are too worried about reelection to stand firm on the issues that really matter to this country. America are the position today because Elected Officials are too worried what others will think, worried about crossing to the other side or in most cases losing the power and the office. Truly a sad statement that has nothing to do with if candidates or elected officials can keep it in their pants.
