Winning the Nobel Peace Prize will most certainly help President Obama achieve his goals of Peace, Prosperiy, Gender Equality, Justice and Love -- for ALL PEOPLE.
Already the foaming-at-the-mouth dogs of the rightwing have shown their true colors. They are pure evil and total hatred -- through and through. They are the people who supported nad encouraged the illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of warmongers, cronies, and thugs. They are the same people who led us to attack an innocent country (Iraq) and who caused the slaughter of at least a million people in that country that WE invaded.
The Nobel Prize has caused these war criminals and their enablers to show who they really are -- people who love war and people who will do anything to stop a man who has brought Hope for a Change to a New Era.
The Nobel Prize shows just how greatly our President, Barack Obama, is beloved by peace-loving people throughout the world. It exposes those who hate President Obama and who wish that he would fail as the war criminals and monsters they really are.
By showing the world the real nature of those who oppose President Obama and his efforts to usher in a New Era of Peace, Prosperity, Gender Equality, Justice, and Love, the Nobel Prize will most certainly marginalize even further the war-mongers -- the war criminals -- who would keep the US in a state of perpetual war. It will not be long before NO ONE listens to them any more. Fox News -- along with all the white men who spew hatred and venom on hate radio -- will soon be off the air.
There are many reasons to applaud the actions of the Nobel Committee this year. One big reason is that, by ultimately silencing those who oppose the efforts of President Obama, it will be easier for President Obama to do what an overwhelming majority of the American People elected him to, and to give Hope for Real Change to the rest of the World.
First, let me say that any "momentum" the Republicans might have had evaporated when President Barack Obama won a very well-deserved Nobel Peace Prize.
As I have said over and over, President Obama's election marked the end of an year-year-long national nightmare -- a dreary nightmare of tyranny, corruption, and evil. The illegal and totally immoral Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies came to an end.
President Obama is in the process of ushering the US and the entire world into a New Era -- and era of Peace, Prosperity, Gender Equality, Justice, and Love.
He has turned around the evil and corrupt policies and pracitices of the Bush/Cheney tyranny, and has begun a process.
We deserves the praise of the entire world.
THe Nobel Prize is a one of many, many ways in which the world shows -- and will continue to show -- its deep, deep appreciation for a man who is much beloved because he is committed to Peace, Justice, and a New Era!
Bravo, Nobel Committee!
Bravo, President Barack Obama!
I ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY trust President Obama to do the right thing on Afghanistan.
President Obama inherited this war from the illegal, immoral, and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies. THEY launched this war not for America's best interests, but so that their cronies (Haliburton, Blackwater) could enjoy HUGE PROFITS from it.
Bush/Cheney completely neglected our brave women and men that THEY had sent into harm's way. Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rummy had NO strategy and NO exit plan. They wanted War for War's Sake. They were war-mongers and war criminals (and for that, they should be triedm convicted, and jailed!)
In November, 2008, the people of the United States came to their senses and elected Barack Obama to lead us to a NEW ERA of PEACE, prosperity, gender equality, justice, and love.
And President Obama has NOT disappointed us. He has led us away from those eight long dreary years of national nightmare. We are not yet to the New Era, but we ARE on the right path.
I TRUST our brave, hopeful, beloved President to do the right thing in Afghanistan.
I know he will.
I saw this question recently:
"Was President Obama wrong not to grant an interview to Fox News?"
First of all, let's get one thing straight: Fox "News" is by NO means a news outlet. It is nothing more than a place for right-wing wingnuts to spew their vile, hateful, and racist propoganda. It is the place that support the illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies. And it HATES Barack Obama -- it cannot stand the fact the an African American is President of the US.
So -- NO -- President Obama was not wrong to grant an interview to Fox "News". President Obama, supported by a majority of ALL Americans and of ALL the people of the WORLD -- is doing his best to usher in a NEW ERA of peace, prosperity, gender-equality, justice, and love. Fox "News", on the other hand, is doing its best to pull us back to the 8 dreary years of Bush/Cheney -- years of wat, depression, male-domination, injustice, and hatred.
Why should President Obama lend the prestige and gravitas of his office to such a low-life, digusting, and vile propoganda outlet as Fox "News". People who watch Fox "News" are more likely to want to watch "Dancing With The Stars" anyway.
OMG! Of course Joe Wilson deserved to be chastised for his outburst.
HOW DARE JOE WILSON engage in such disrespectful behavior? As others have said, it is undoubtedly true that Wilson was motivated by a deep-seeded hatred of anyone who is not lily-white, and just cannot stand the fact that an African American is President. For THAT alone, Wilson deserves all the shame and scorn that can be heaped onto him
But more than that, Wilson attacked the policies of a man elected to usher in a new era of peace, prosperity, gender-equality, justice, and love, and in so doing, put himself on the side of the corrupt cronies and thugs of the illegal and immoral tyrants who were part of the Bush-Cheney regime of torture, war, and huge payouts to cronies.
Wilson should be kicked out of the House of Representatives. The sad thing is that the people of his own district elected him, reflecting their own racism and love of tyranny, war, torture, and corruption. After Wilson is kicked out of the House, hus replacement should be elected by the other members of the House of Representatives -- there would be more opportunity to have Wilson replaced by someone who truly understands that racism is not tolerated, and that we are in a NEW ERA of Peace, Prosperity, Justice, Gender-Equality, and Love.
For example, today I saw this question: "Do you want to know what Dick Cheney really thinks of George W. Bush?", and I had to post.
I am VERY conflicted about this question.
On the one hand, I would LOVE to know what that lying weasel and war criminal, Darth Vader Cheney, really thinks (although I don't feel that Cheney has the capacity to think) of that Idiot Son Chimpanzee War Criminal and Torturer-in-Chief, George Bush.
On the other hand, though, I really feel that I do NOT care at all what the evil and corrupt Cheney thinks at all. I just want him punished for all the torture, war, and hatred he and Bush inflicted on us and on the rest of the world over those horrible eight long dreary years when they illegally occupied the White House.
What's more, I find it far more preferable to look ahead, and not backward. To look ahead to that glorious day when or beloved President, Barack Obama, will be able to lead us to a NEW ERA of Peace, Prosperity, Gender Equality, Justice, Love, and Quality Affordable Health Care FOR ALL!
Can We Look Ahead To Quality Affordable Health Care FOR ALL?
YES WE CAN!!!
I feel that the entire Bush/Cheney illegal regime of thugs and cronies should be investigated -- starting with Bush/Cheney/Rumsefeld/Rice, and continuing right through until every single war criminal, thug, cronie, lackey, and thief in that horrible, evil, corrupt and illegal regime has been completely and totally investigated.
It is NOT a waste of time to do these investigations. The illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies engaged in torture and other terrible war crimes. They took this nation to war for NO reason, and they bombed innocent children and women in Iraq, and had thousands of American soldiers killed just to satisfy the blood lust of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and the rest of those evil monsters.
Also, they did everything they could to take away the rights of Americans. They listened in to our phone calls. They looked at our emails. They even demanded to see what books we checked out form the library!
They are all monsters -- everyone of them.
And they deserve to be not just investigated. They deserve to be indicted, tried, and CONVICTED for their terrible crimes. And they deserve imprisonment in the same types of cells they put "detainees" into. Monstrous people who commit monstrous crimes should be investigated. We did it at Nuremburg after WWII. We MUST DO IT NOW!
It is the ONLY way we can begin to move into the new era of peace, prosperity, justice, gender equality, and love that President Obama really wishes to move our country - and the entire world - to.
How devoutly do I wish that the American Media would do its job and report the NEWS, rather than focus any more attention on a has-been drama queen who has had waaaaaay more than her own fifteen minutes of fame.
Our beloved President, Barack Obama, is right now in Russia, and will so go to Italy and Africa. THAT is the future -- President Obama doing all he can to bring about peace, prosperity, gender equality, justice, and love.
As to Sarah Palin's political future, does anyone (besides the usual wingnuts of the right) seriously think that "you betcha" can become President? President Obama will still be greatly loved in 2012. And, if America becomes the nation of Change and Hope during the Barack Obama Presidency, it would not surprize me at all if Michelle Obama became President in 2016.
I have long felt that Sarah Palin has serious "issues" that likely require medication. On Friday, she must have forgotten to take her meds. It is always so sad to see that, but especially so when the person forgetting her meds has a national megaphone.
Recent upbeat economic reports have made me much more optimistic.
For me, the HOPE that I had when I voted for President Obama is beginning to be realized. I hoped that, after eight long dreary years of tyranny under the nightmare known as the corrupt and totally illegal Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies, we would have a President who understood the needs of the common people.
And indeed, our much beloved President, Barack Obama, has taken bold steps in several directions to bring us to a New Historic Era of peace, PROSPERITY, gender equality, justice, and love.
The recent upbeat economic reports demonstrated to anyone with half a brain that the crony-based economy of Bush/Cheney -- desgined to line the pockets of rich corporate thugs at places like Haliburton -- drove our country to the brink of economic disaster. It is ONLY because we now have a President who truly is committed to economic justice for ALL people that we can all have Hope for a brighter future for ALL people!
Can we Hope for a prosperous future for ALL -- and not just the well-connected?
YES WE CAN!!
Some have asked whether N. Korea would carry out its threat to attack U.S. ships.
I think not. We now have an administration dedicate to PEACE through engagement and negotiation, and NOT through agressive, warlike means.
It was the evil, illegal, and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime that engaged in saber-rattling and wars of agression against other sovereign nations. Bush/Cheney and all of the cronies and thugs in that eight-year-long nightmare of tyranny and corruption took real delight in war-mongering and bullying other nations.
Now, though, we have an administration that really understands that peace comes not at the end of a rifle but through extending hands to others. Our beloved President, Barack Obama, understands the importance of reaching out to countries like North Korea, and engaging them in meaningful dialogue. And President Obama understands that the US is, and has been, the cause of most of the world's conflict over the past few years.
I am quite sure that, after President Obama makes it clear that the US has NO war-like intentions towars North Korea, and after President Obama begins the process of ENGAGING North Korea in meaningful talks aimed at understanding the legitimate grievances of North Korea, peace WILL prevail. President Obama is dedicate to bringing the world closer to a new day of PEACE, prosperity, gender equality, justice, and love!!
If someone were to ask me, "Do you think Sonia Sotomayor is a good pick for the Supreme Court?", I would say, "YES YES YES".
She has all the characteristics of a GREAT Supreme Court Justice. She has roots among the common people. She is well-educated. She is devoted to the cause of Justice FOR ALL. She is empathetic and sympathetic.
She is the COMPLETE opposite of the two "justices" who were appointed by the illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies -- Scalia and Roberts. They are -- BOTH OF THEM! -- little more than right-wing hacks who are likely in the employ of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to Deny Poor People and Minorities Their Civil Rights!
Once again, our Beloved President Barack Obama has shown himself to be a man who really cares for the down-trodden and the oppresseed (such a welcome change after eight long dreary years of the tyrannical nightmare known as the Bush/Cheney misadminstration). President Obama is, indeed, bringing us closer to the day when there will be peace, prosperity, gender equality, justice, and love.
Of course I sympathize with the Gosselin family of 'Jon & Kate Plus 8'.
I'm a compassionate person with warm, caring, sympathetic feelings towards all of humanity.
I am quite different from the people who were supporters or part of the evil and illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies.
I am also so very glad that our much Beloved (and QUITE SYMPATHETIC) President, Barack Obama, has nominated a person with real sympathy and true empathy to the Supreme Court. President Obama's nomination brings us all closer to the time when the USA will be a sympathetic nation, full of prosperity, peace, gender equality, justice and love!
I would not be devastated if Tai Shan left the National Zoo for China.
I'll tell you what does devastate -- DEVASTATE! -- me.
It is seeing the ugly face of Darth DickCheney Vader, LYING to all of us. It just devastates me to be reminded of the eight long dreary years of total nightmare and tyranny that we all endured under the illegal and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies.
I am, though, comforted in my devastation by reminding myself that we NOW have a WONDERFUL President -- Barack Obama -- who, despite inheriting a terrible mess, is doing all he can to restore America to its once-lost values.
There is no doubt that under the evil, illegal, and totally corrupt Bush/Cheney regime of thugs and cronies, the US was THE bully nation.
I feel, though, that since President Obama has begun to serve the people of the United States, there has been a real turn around in US policy towards other nations.
President Obama has reached out to Cuba, Venezuela, and all of the countries of Latin America. He has also reached out to Iran.
The US, under President Barack Obama, may not be perfect, but it is a LOOOOOOONG way from the bully nation it was during the eight long dreary years of tyranny otherwise known as the Bush/Cheney regime.
I have a drivers license.
I drive, but not very often.
I am not an idiot.
