when elected in 2008 the marxist messiah [promised to focus on the economy like a laser as well as personally go over the federal budget and eliminate all wasteful spending items but like all his other lies, he never focused on the economy instead turning all his attention and telling countless lies that the health care disaster was what is best for America and as we know he added 6 trillion to the national debt in a spending orgy of funding failed projects and directing billions to the unions and the special interests that funded his campaign and owned his loyalty now 4 years later, he maintains the economy is doing fine and his priorities are amnesty for illegals and new gun control efforts

short, sweet, to the point. Why can't that be said out loud on TV, every day until people hear?

This is why I believe the American people are so caught up in their own little cacoon that they don't see the big picture. They don't understand that what the government does has everything to do with how they live their lives. If they don't wake up, they will just have to deal with what they put in place. My experience tells me that they are not going to be too happy when they find out what they are facing in the future. I wish you young people see the big picture before it's too late !!!

That sums it up rather nicely. The electorate was duped--twice--by this snake oil salesman who, come to think of it, doesn't even have the experience to run a snake oil distributorship.

Don't be so sure. He WAS an effective Community Organizer, training his minions in how to harass bankers into issuing more toxic loans. Those efforts helped to create the big financial meltdown that 0 now blames on Bush. I'd say 0 is a very good liar, certainly rivaling Clinton, who was also a very good liar, though that trait was much admired in Clinton, simply ignored in 0.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
