Five years ago, a headline like this at USA Today was inconceivable. Worth the time to read.

I don’t know which I am feeling more, wrath, or extreme saddness, seeing what has happened to our military and our nation.

"2014 will be even worse for our president"

A worse year for Obama means a better, more hopeful year for America. I'm good with that.

What is really sad is the total ineptitude and stupidity of the American voters that thought Obama was the messiah. Even more damning is that they reelected him. Racial guilt and Bush Derangement Syndrome just may have destroyed America.

Recovery for Obama is tantamount to un starting a fire of great magnitude. Eventually the fire consumes fuel at a rate that becomes impossible to outpace with media whistling and "look, a squirrel!" attempts at distraction.

It will be especially difficult for the presidential imposter to recover for any number of reasons but the most important is due to the fact that "it" was all built on a foundation of lies to begin with.

Obama has now been handed over to the mob, the millions of unemployed, uninsured and unimpressed who were all employed, insured and very impressed 5 years ago.

This might hurt a little.

Give Marvin another chance!
********************************

OK this comes from a humor story:

Marvin is a good basketball star being quizzed by his teacher on math before his classmates at a minority filled school and she asked Marvin a simple math question.

Marvin, what is 2+2 ?

Marvin replies 7.

Sorry, Marvin that is wrong.
Then the class yells “Give Marvin another chance!”

The teacher says, OK - Marvin, what is 6+2 ?

Marvin replies 12.

Sorry, Marvin that is wrong.
Then the class yells “Give Marvin another chance!”

The teacher says, OK - Marvin, what is 5+5 ?

Marvin replies 10.

Then the class yells “Give Marvin another chance!”

I don't approve of the last word in the title, but I'm glad they agree that next year will be terrible for Dear Leader and thus good for America.

I think the media is slowly beginning to realize
that after Obama, the American people will still
be here, whereas after America is gone they will
only have Obama.

Small fractures grow, there isn’t enough blood
in the water to start a frenzy but is is enough
to draw sharks.

Domestically, yes. Another bad year for Obama will likely bring more pain for the people, but an end to the pain even closer...hopefully.

However, on the foreign relations front, another bad year for Obama could translate to thousands, tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of deaths. Including many Americans...

The sooner this man is rendered harmless and out of office, the better.

>>2014 will be even worse for our president<<

.
What does that mean? Fewer adoring crowds?

You think he cares? He came to bring hope and change — forget about the former, but he certainly accomplished the latter and the change will be felt for generations to come.

He was one of the most successful presidents (in pushing his malicious agenda) in the last 100 years and he showed that the executive branch of government can easily overpower the other two.

I just threw up in my mouth then blew it all over the keyboard.

I wonder what will happen when supposedly 70% are against amnesty or something like that, depends on how they phrase the question, and they shove that down our throats.

Not only the Army, the USAF is about to crash and burn under the weight of PC over mission readiness.

INCONVENIENT FACTOID: Obama wasn't reelected----the election was fixed. David "I'm Harmless" Axelrod gave CBS news a tour of 2012 Obama's campaign hdq---but to the casual observer---nothing was happening. The Obama fix was being done sub-rosa---in swing states.

Romney never looked more stupid that when he conceded---not even a nod to the voter fraud meat grinder he was put through. Watta dumbo.

At the risk of being labeled a pessimist, a label with which I would not disagree, I don’t see how it’s possible for 2014 to be a better year. I don’t mean to pee on anyone’s parade.

Suppose it’s a “bad year” for 0bama. Will that mean he mollifies his policies? Doubt it. His pattern is increasingly to double down on them. His pattern is to act, up to now, like a caged animal. His modus and motivation is revenge against whitey. So if things get “bad” for 0bama, it’s likely, to me, that he redoubles his efforts to do the most damage he can while he is in office which, let’s not forget, is (ugh) 3 more years.

And what we have in Washington is a class of folks who are shameless self-aggrandizers; they see what’s ahead or minimally go along with it willingly, and the scarcer the scraps of meat on the corpse, they snappier they will get looking for grift. Each will be looking to get out of it what they can, while they can, ever more viciously ignoring and contravening the wishes of those who foolishly elect them

Suppose it’s a “good year” for 0bamna. Well, that just means more of his crap gets defecated down our throats.

The 2014 elections about which I assume we are generally sanguine, are not until November. Until then, I don’t see what’s going to change about virtually anything, except to get worse. Except for the stock market, I guess, and the economy which appears to be getting a little better, by some measures.

Thus, good or bad for 0bama, we have a solid year of vandalism and juvenile delinquency when it comes to lawmaking and policymaking.
