Did Barack Obama preach Unity or Division in the below message? There is a famous Canadian MAGA man from the Canadian West Coast which activates on this forum that is too lazy to do the work for what he believes in. He just does copy and paste pictures from paint. His main accusation is that Barack Obama engaged in division and justified the deaths of police officers because of slavery. Or something. 99 % I am convinced this is what he kept agitating about. I will most likely be voting Unity, as I don't agree with his BIAS and opinion. This is what democracy is about. We can disagree. Until people like him come to power, at least, we can disagree. But first, I will watch the video again, today sometimes. I don't want to be like Judge Dredd and pass an immediate judgement even if I already know what that might be. What do you think? I did not tag the person, because a lazy person does not deserve to be promoted. Everyone knows who he is anyways, he is famous.
Obama, Heckler, Politics Today
Contrarian posted a topic in US Federal PoliticsObama talking about the toxic politics of today. via The Washington Post “Are you gonna start yelling?” Obama replied, as the crowd erupted into loud boos in an attempt to drown out the heckler. “Hold up, hold up everybody,” Obama said. “Hey, young man, just listen for a second. You know you have to be polite and civil when people are talking, then other people are talking and then you get a chance to talk.” “Set up your own rally!” the former president quipped. “A lot of people worked hard for this. Come on, man.” As the event began to come back under hand, Obama urged the crowd to “settle down” and said the incident was akin to the noise drowning out moderate voices in many political debates. “This is part of what happens in our politics these days. We get distracted,” Obama said. “You got one person yelling and suddenly everybody’s yelling. You get one tweet that’s stupid and suddenly everybody’s obsessed with the tweet. We can’t fall for that. We have to stay focused,” he said.
The Truth About Benghazi
Shady posted a topic in US Federal PoliticsThat's from the Washingto Post. Now, from Politico... And then, we can take a look at what the White House press secretary had to say on September 20th. So yes, as usual, Obama misrepresented the truth. He seems to have a problem with that these days.
According to The New Yorker's endorsement of Barack Obama it certainly seems to be. They describe the legacy of George W. Bush and what Obama inherited as he entered office: So what is Obama's record? Has he done absolutely nothing as the GOP talking points and their echo boxes on this forum claim? The New Yorker outlines Obama's accomplishments on the above issues that were handed to him by the GOP in 2008 and more. And... (Read The New Yorker's endorsement HERE.) Is the United States better off in 2012 than in 2008? Not to those suffering from Romnesia, but when you look back on the state of America on Inauguration Day and see all that Obama has accomplished amidst some of the worst legislative stonewalling from the GOP in the nation's history, it seems pretty dishonest to say that he has accomplished "nothing" in 4 years.
It seems like alternative energy schemes, especially those espoused by Obama, have a high mortality rate. Solyndra. The maker of the abortive Volt battery, A123 (see article excerpts below, link). I don't know if it's Obama's gross incompetence, or more likely the result of trying to force a market where none exists, or maybe both. I do know that as a taxpayer I can find far better uses than pouring it down a rat hole. Battery Maker Files for Bankruptcy A123 Scraps China Deal and Will Sell Car Assets to Johnson Controls Electric-car-battery manufacturer A123 Systems Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Tuesday with a plan to sell its auto-business assets to an American rival, Johnson Controls Inc., scrapping a proposed rescue by a Chinese company. The filing by the recipient of nearly $250 million in federal-government grants and $358 million in start-up funding scuttled a previously announced plan to sell an 80% stake to Chinese auto-parts maker Wanxiang Group Corp. That deal had encountered opposition from lawmakers concerned about the transfer of American taxpayer dollars and technology to China. A123's bankruptcy also represents a setback for the Obama administration's efforts to foster a market for electric vehicles and develop a homegrown supply of advanced batteries. It provides fodder for Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney to continue attacking the president for his financial support of renewable-energy firms. While A123 Systems' tumble into bankruptcy follows that of other stimulus missteps like backing for failed solar-panel manufacturer Solyndra LLC, the futures of the two companies differ markedly.
