Trump offered to donate $5M to charities of Obama's choice if Obama released passport information and college transcripts.
It is an excellent opportunity for Obama to help poor and prove wrong those who think he got ahead in life because of affirmative action policies.
Why does Obama refuse to help those in need? Why does he still hide trivial information about his background. He would not lie to us, would he?19 AnswersElections8 years ago
The Barack Obama administration has announced plans to lift a government ban on tracking visitors to government websites, and potentially, collect their personal data through the use of "cookies" – an effort some suspect may already be in place on White House sites.
It has been reported that Michelle Obama has 22 paid assistants (this is in addition to the White House servant staff and Secret Service protection).10 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

My theory is that he wants to keep the illusion (created by the media) of him being an excellent student and a constitutional scholar.
I suspect that he was a mediocre student like other recent presidential candidates: Gore, Bush and McCain.
What is wrong with my theory? Can you come up with a better explanation?14 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
Change the party election procedures:
1. In the Primary Elections, have an instant runoff until one candidate has more than 50% of the vote to prevent the main stream media from selecting a candidate who wins a state with 35% of the vote.
2. Once nominated, candidate has to resign from his/hers current office seat. This would force the candidate to "burn bridges behind them" and feel more urgency in trying to become a president.

The funny thing is that he won his first political office by disqualifying opponents in the primary election.
The solution to the problem with people abusing too many IDs would be a requirement to pay a monthly subscription fee for posting limited number of messages. Only one ID per credit card would be allowed.
A pricing scheme similar to monthly cell phone plans could be introduced (the number of messages posted per month would be equivalent to minutes of talk time). If a person exceeds the monthly limit, additional messages would be charged at higher rate.
Would you be willing to pay for this service and how much?
Please provide answer in the following format: $ per month / number of posts allowed ( for example: $5 / 300 posts)
How much should additional posts (beyond limit) cost?4 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago

If this is the case, there was no "surplus" during Clinton years.
The national debt increased each and every year he was in office. The following is a link to government website:
If the national debt interest payments are not included into the government budget, than the government is simply involved in cooking books.
Before you jump on me for not mentioning Bush, the current administration is much worse offender when it comes to out-of-control government spending (including out-of-control spending on domestic programs) than previous administrations.
Unfortunately, current Dem majority in Congress will probably keep the spending in line what Bush was doing.
Even with tax cuts from few years ago, government has received record revenues - they just find more ways to spend "little extra" in excess of that revenue.2 AnswersGovernment1 decade ago
