Barack Obama - #3510 - Obama's Chance at a Two-Term Presidency - American Thinker (2) VIDEO: No Spin Zone? O'Reilly Asks Romney If Obama Is 'A Socialist' and He Says..........The Blaze (3) Who's Footing the Bill for the Obama Family's Estimated $4 Million Vacation - The Blaze

Great History Lesson.......
One of the greatest gifts that America has given to the world is the idea that the leader of a nation should be chosen freely by its people. Well, perhaps the notion did not originate in America, but the Yanks certainly showed the world how to do it. More spectacularly and more originally, the United States pioneered the following novel concept: when the favor of the people transfers from one faction (as Madison called them) or party to another, then the defeated incumbent gracefully steps aside as his victorious opponent peacefully and lawfully takes his place as the new leader. Indeed, the peaceful transfer of power from the Federalists (Adams) to the Democratic-Republicans (Jefferson) in 1801 must be regarded as one of the most momentous advances in the history of human freedom......... Given the well-known features of the red-blue electoral map, there are therefore only two possibilities. Either Obama will squeak by in an extremely close contest (à la W. Bush in 2004), or he will be blown out of the water like Carter in 1980. I believe that Obama is an incompetent, overly self-confident, narcissistic, hardcore leftist ideologue who is dragging America toward a cliff similar to the one off which most of the countries of Western Europe are plunging. I hope, but am not confident, that most of America recognizes this. If so, Obama is toast. If not, he might squeak by and retain the presidency. We will know in less than a year.  Read more.......




No Spin Zone? O'Reilly Asks Romney If Obama is 'A Socialist' and He Says...... The Blaze - Is he a socialist?” asks FOX News’s blunt television host Bill O’Reilly.  “I prefer to use the term that ‘he’s just over his head,’ the former governor of Massachusetts responds with what he must have thought was a safe answer.  “Yeah, but you gotta’ look at his economic plan, and that economic plan was top down, federal leadership getting us out of the recession — we spent trillions of dollars–and people say, ‘Listen, the guy’s a socialist!‘ It’s class warfare; that‘s what he’s going to wage against you if you get the nomination,” O’Reilly says, gesturing towards Romney.  “You’re a rich guy, you’re out of touch,” the host adds.Concluding his prediction that Romney should prepare for “class warfare” should he earn the GOP nomination, Bill O’Reilly repeats the question.  Read more.........

Who's Footing the Bill for the Obama Family's Estimate $4 Million Vacation - The Blaze - So, just how much will President Barack Obama’s Hawaiian vacation cost this year? That‘s a question that can’t be definitively answered until the costs are in and the trip has concluded, but an assessment of the numbers shows that it will likely be the 44th president’s most expensive vacation to date.  The Hawaii Reporter has estimated that travel, alone, will cost $3,629,622 — a startlingly large figure considering the length of the trip. And, yes, in case you were wondering: Taxpayers will be footing a chunk of the bill. After all, it‘s not cheap to ensure that the world’s most powerful leader is safe as he travels and enjoys time away from the grind.  To begin, the family is traveling separately, as Obama has had plenty to wrap up in Washington, D.C. before the holidays (i.e. the payroll tax cut drama). So, First Lady Michelle Obama already left for the family’s tropical getaway — a $100,000 expenditure, including personnel, travel and security.  Read more.......
