Either with McCain or Romney all this total lying and disregard for humanity would not be occurring.  The fundamental dishonesty of this President is no longer astonishing, and it is just a dismal everyday reality. 

Seriously!?  Both of these neocons are on Obama's side on all of this, they are just sore that they lost!  Do you really think that Gitmo would be any more closed with McCain, or that ObamaCare would be any less of a disaster under Romney?  Or even vise versa?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Hell yes.  Obviously.  And unfortunately.  The Democrats create stupid socialist schemes, the Republicans make them work.

As for Gitmo I couldn't care less if it was open or closed, but the prisoners there deserve due process.  My opinion, I really don't care if they have no right to due process according to some asshole military lawyer or politician.

 Grin

Ok, I'll give you the first one, but only because instead of lying, there would be a lot of sleeping and snoring. Though I am not sure I would have been able to handle 4 years of "Don'cha'no" and compulsive winking...

Romney was lying throughout his campaign, too. They all always are. It's their job.

You don't get into politics by telling the truth.

http://washingtonexaminer.com/article/2538638


Reporters with the Society of American Business Editors and Writers received “training” on how to cover Obamacare’s rollout from a policy expert who works with President Obama’s former health information technology adviser.

The Commonwealth Fund’s Sara Collins claimed during the training that healthcare.gov’s chronic dysfunctionality does not signify “deeper issues” with the law.

“I don’t think it signifies deeper problems, I think it is a website issue,” Collins told SABEW during the Oct. 28 training seminar.

Her optimistic take on the law’s difficulties is unsurprising since she works for an organization led by David Blumenthal, who was President Obama’s national coordinator for health information technology from 2009 to 2011.

BitTorrent is forcing people to rethink about the ethics and freedoms associated with copyright and digitalproperty ownership. I think Bitcoin will force people to rethink about the ethics and freedoms associated with democracy for the same reasons. From my sig, in case it's too small to read

hopefully this decentralized vision will expand the mindset and collapse most of the status quo models people believe they have the false choices to. This could be the reason most people here, from hardcore communists to anarchists, to atheists to believers feel comfortable (most of the time) talking to each other. Anyway I have a lot of fun reading stuff that are not part of my Utopian vision here, thanks to Bitcoin.

Obama Cares...

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/nov/8/miller-obama-plays-150-rounds-golf-president/

President Obama’s approval ratings may be stuck in a sand trap, but that has not deterred him from sticking to his weekly round of golf. After teeing off on Saturday at the private course in Florida where the film “Caddy Shack” was filmed, Mr. Obama hit the milestone number of 150 golf rounds in less than five years in the White House.

The Secret Service loaded Mr. Obama’s golf clubs bag emblazoned with the presidential seal into the motorcade Saturday morning to head to the private Grande Oaks Golf Club. Sporting a blue polo shirt with tan slacks and a cap, he spent five hours on the private course with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, friend Cyrus Walker and former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.

Mr. Obama wasn’t much of a duffer before he ran for president. His regularity on the green started on April 26, 2009. He played 27 times that first year in office, seven of which were during his vacations on Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii.

During his second year as president, Mr. Obama played a little more — 30 rounds. He included a woman for only the second time when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius joined on Oct. 10, 2010.

Perhaps time on the links gave them time to discuss all the people they knew would lose their insurance when Obamacare was implemented. Ms. Sebelius also joined the president on the golf course on May 18 this year.

i'm not completely defending him here, but what is he supposed to do from his desk in the oval office? complaining about obama golfing with the superstorm hitting the phillippines sounds like a fox news ploy to bash obama. i take more issue with his foreign policy/drone strikes, increasing the state police autonomy, and being in the pocket of big business and banks.

You are totally right. It was a cheap shot from me. Let's talk a bit more about him being in the pocket of big businesses instead shall we?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2013/11/08/the-new-york-times-endorsed-a-secretive-trade-agreement-that-the-public-cant-read/

The Obama administration is secretly negotiating a treaty that could have significant effects on domestic law. Officially, it’s a “free trade” treaty among Pacific rim countries, but a section of the draft agreement leaked in 2011 suggested that it will require signers, including the United States, to make significant changes to copyright law and enforcement measures.

Strangely, the administration seems to be encouraging the public to have a debate on the treaty before they know what’s in it. The Office of the United States Trade Representative has solicited comments about the treaty on its Web site, but there is no particularly detailed information about the content of the agreement, or a draft of the current version of the proposal.

Now, as Maira Sutton at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) notes, the New York Times editorial board has endorsed the TPP. While the editorial acknowledges that some are “worried about provisions on intellectual property that could restrict the availability of generic medicines and grant longer copyright protections to big media companies,” it nevertheless argues that a “good deal” would “not only help individual countries but set an example for global trade talks.”

Now I understand why he went Golfing. It is hard work screwing up the "little people" all day long using his forked tongue.

Perhaps we should ask Bush why he was playing golf while starting to wage the war in Iraq. Maybe they have similar reasons for going off to play.

Of course they do.  Neither is really in charge of anything.

Being practical and proactive, we should just continue the fine Chicago gangster Democratic and liberal tradition of "Blame it on Bush."

Everything should be blamed on Bush, for at least the next century or two.  The Phillipines storm - just like Katrina - was the result of Bush ignoring climate controls and letting people do anything they wanted with carbon.

Bengazi...the IRS scandal...Fast and Furious.....BUSH'S FAULT!

I'm not blaming it on Bush, just saying it's no different from that supposedly completely other guy, whom many of the people blaming Obama have not blaimed for the exact same thing. If you say that Bush did a lot of bad stuff, and now Obama is doing a lot of the same bad stuff, I agree with you. If you were sitting ildly by and ignoring things that Bush did, but then suddenly started to complain about them when Obama got into office, then you'd just be a hypocrite, or at the least disingenuous.
