Decreasing the chance we'll be called global bullies once again. I'm sure Vlad is grinning at this news. And thinking, "Stupid Amerikanskis. They voted this idiot in again." Let's see, Vlad hunting on vaca or golfing? Does Vlad wear mom jeans?

And increase food stamp payouts to “those who qualify”, if you know what I mean.

And where are all those people who said they were teaching the republicans a lesson by voting for a 3rd party who stood no chance to win? Its better this way, right?

Dear God in Heaven...let the Obama nightmare and plague on our nation end soon. Please, I pray Thee, for the sake of our children and grandchildren, and for the sake of every person and nation in the world who longs for true liberty, let the people of this nation this November in 2014 remove his abettors and accomplices from Office in the House and Senate...and in State Houses around this nation. Then, Dear Father, we earnestly pray, then in November 2016 elect a true, God-fearing and patriotic American to the office of Presidency who can, with those elected in the House and Senate, begin to dismantle what these cretins have done, and make America strong again...returning to Thee according to Thy admonition in II Chron 7:14. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Yup.

Perhaps it would be a good thing to reduce some military spending but when it is just being reprogrammed plus into giveaway programs for the bums I don’t support it one iota. Frankly, the proper counter to Putin would be to abrogate the above gound testing treaty and fire off a few of our enduring stockpile to test their efficieny, power up Hanaford and begin processing weapons grade materials ASAP, recommission the destroyed silos, restart the Peacekeeper program, build a dozen more Tridents, and dig up both Gens Patton and LeMay.

I’m thinkin’ it’s gonna take a lot longer than a 4 or 8 year term to rip asunder all the damage and rebuild it. Especially with all the clinton sleepers and now “lyin’ king” sleepers in place to carry on the destruction of the country. Sorry dang situation.

I agree. Now we need to promote VOTING among our Evangelical Friends - including the ones that stayed home in 2013 because Mitt was a Mormon.

Ti will take at least 50 years of rebuilding and replacing to undo the damage already done. In addition to the obvious damage done, they have placed moles and termites in positions to undermine for decades into the future.

The rebuilding process is predicated upon replacing Obama with an American and him leaving the White House in 2017, which I will have to see to believe. And furthermore, as evidenced by the elections of 2008 and 2012, unless the morals of the Country and the patriotism of its citizens is raised, again something I don't see happening, the chances of electing a President that has America's welfare first is slim to none.

We are so infiltrated and compromised that it’s going to take a decade or more to rid ourselves of the treasonous, marxist, commie subhuman filth put in-place by Klintoon & 0bummer&Co. And wean so many millions off the gov’t teat. I just hope our Republic can survive the time period without a CW3 happening.

The planes will be flown to Tuscon where they will be stored and carefully maintained for the day the treacherous Tyrant is gone

I know what you mean. Believe me, the DOD can cut waste and we should reign in the "Congressional Industrial Military Complex". However, I do not trust Obama to make the correct calls in defense when his motivation is to make the US equal on an international scale and to use the budget savings to increase the welfare state.

Furthermore, and this is Ryan and Bonner's fault when they cut COLA for military retirees, our side is giving budget concessions and their side is not.

Instead, let's cut the luxury aircraft he and his cronies ride around in - and his vacation budget as well!
