it.....although I know what is coming is far worse.
I am now on Medicare (retired and Old Enough!).
It is absolutely wonderful - at least for now.

Subject: List of Biden's political blunders
The following is a list of Vice President Biden's notable gaffes and
moments of candor.
You mean that list is short enough to even think of putting it online?????
Dan Quayle: the thinking man's Joe Biden.
The bombing needs to begin now.

A bunch of communist socialist Harvard students are saying that America is a greater threat to world peace than the Islamic State (aka ISIS).
So ... not only are our tax dollars funding ISIS, but we're also providing federal aid to ultra-communist think tanks like Harvard to tell us that we're the problem.
countries than ISIS. The U.S. is a bigger threat because they are bigger and feel they have to police
force the world.
Funding one group of jihadi wackos ostensibly for the purpose of attacking another, but they're still jihadi wackos and they end up using our money to attack peaceful targets. Not to mention the deliberately porous border and stupid immigration policies, currently being used to import ebola into the country and rapidly distribute it from coast to coast.
Bush didn't do *enough* to tackle Al Qaeda (aka ISIS, ISIL, Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, Hamas; they're all the same damn organization). The WMD's were hidden in Syria and now the jihadi wackos have them.
Obama has shredded our military almost beyond recognition; he does not know how to lead; his foreign policy is virtually nonexistent; his domestic policy is divisive.
A ship without a rudder steaming full speed to "who knows where' is a hazard.
The cure? That's simple. Go to the polls and remove these hapless "liberal" idiots. May not be an "instant cure" but it's a start.
yesterday I learned why the russians were so careful about dropping their support for assad - because they knew chechenian terorists where bleeding into syria to get their thing started.
The result of this is what we now see in the news day by day.
When did the US last have a real leader in the presidency?
I want to suggest Clinton. I think, love or hate him, Clinton might have been the last real leader we had. Shrub and Obama both lean very heavily on advisors and do very little leading of their own (tons of vacations is part of the proof of that). And I think in both cases their respective parties love them.
Clinton wasn't well liked by either side, which sorta suggests to me that he was closer to being a leader than otherwise. I suspect he did what he felt was right for the moment, rather than what the party wanted.
Not that I necessarily liked Clinton (I'm not sure I would like anyone, honestly), but at least he was a leader.

I would ask Monica Lewinsky and the rest of the never-ending Bimbo Parade about that.
And I'd be very reluctant to sing the praises of a president that bungled at least two opportunities to seize and/or kill Osama Bin Laden, which would have spared us the agonies of 9-11 and its aftermath.
The "economic boom" that democraps like to credit to Bill Clinton was, if you recall, the direct result of Republicans winning the House in 1994 (for the first time in roughly 40 years) and the Contract For America forcing Slick Willy to balance the budget and sign the Welfare Reform legislation.
Please remember that it was Slick Willie's idea to repeal Glass Steagal, which ended up being one of the main contributors to the Great "Recession" (Depression II) of 2009. The other main contributor - obviously - was Barack Obama and his idiotic "stimulus" programs.
As I said, I don't like him, but at least he was a leader.
Maybe a terrible one, but none-the-less, a leader.
Agreed with Vince that the 1990's boom had more to do with Newt Gingrich than it did with Bill Clinton. The thing we have to credit Clinton for, however, is that he was able to react to public opinion and pivot accordingly, and the results were good. You can bet that even if the GOP takes both houses next month -- and if they are capable of generating some sound economic policy (not guaranteed with shitheads like Boehner around) -- Obama will *not* work with them. He'll veto (or ignore) everything that arrives on his desk. He'll continue to legislate with his pen and phone, knowing how difficult it is for Congress to get a two-thirds majority to override his decisions. He'll continue his very focused effort to destroy the nation, because he is not only a communist socialist terrorist, but also a sociopath.
You can normally tell that a politician is a sociopath if they get involved in federal politics. At all. Because as far as I can tell, they're all sociopaths.

Obama is even worse than you describe, IG
If you, or I, or any other "civilian" did *half* the things I could cite we would be indicted for TREASON.
Obama should not be impeached. He should be indicted and tried by a JURY (only 12 folks to convince in a criminal trial, and not 67 out of 100 in that travesty the Senate would call a "trial" were he to be impeached).
AND... the prosecution would have some "say" in who sits on that jury (it's called Voir Dire). As would the defense. And if I were the prosecutor, the one thing that would NOT be on the table would be a plea bargain.
Obama could be charged under an "information" in a state not so "vigilant" about race being an issue, but rather prosecution of an alleged crime being **the** issue.
I don't think that the good folks of, say, Wyoming, would mind in the least.
