Obama nominated a top political donor to be an U.S. ambassador.  It appears Norway is not impressed.

'Obama must apologise for envoy gaffe'

http://www.thelocal.no/20140124/norway-party-demands-obama-apology-for-envoy-gaffe

Norway's Progress Party has demanded a personal apology from US President Barack Obama after his nomination for Norway's new ambassador described its members as "fringe elements" who "spew out their hatred" (PLUS VIDEO).

"I think this is unacceptable and a provocation," Jan Arild Ellingsen, the party's justice spokesman, told Norway's TV2 television channel. "I expect the US president to apologize to both Norway and the Progress Party".
 
George Tsunis, a Greek-American property millionaire who was one of Obama's biggest individual campaign donors, displayed only the scantiest knowledge of Norway at a senate hearing this week ahead of his appointment, describing the Progress Party, which has seven ministers in the government, as if it were a fringe far-right group.

I thought it was a well known fact that you could buy an Ambassadorship....

This guy must be wildly unqualified for Norway to care and be offended.

Wildly unqualified with extremely deep pockets that 'throw' cash toward Obama...

What I've never been able to figure out is how Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.  He's a liar, a cheat and devious.  I guess thats thee qualifications to be the recipient.....

Maybe they will take it back?

They certainly should over the dropping bombs on sovereign countries from unmanned drones thing.

Pulling out if Iraq the way he did also qualifies as a special sort of stupid.

I would say faking the unemployment and inflation numbers are two of Obama's greatest achievements.

[quoteConvergEx market strategist, Nick Colas, said that mothers could tell the government a lot about inflation.

"Food inflation is far greater than the government thinks it is," he said.

But the big problem for families:  Wages are not budging.

"If my income isn't going up, how am I going to keep up with inflation?" Singer asked.

Wages are not budging as prices rise CBS NEWS
 
Median income is up only 1 percent a year.  For Singer, that makes it hard to save for college tuition - which has been rising 6 percent to 8 percent every year for five decades.

"The price of college is terrifying and so we're looking at cheaper schools or scholarships, I hope," she said. "You know, 'Run faster in track.' That will really help me out a lot."

 Many are concerned that while economists paint a benign picture, middle-class families are quietly struggling.

"The disconnect is severe, because it's the economists that make policy but it's the people who have to live with the outcome of that policy and that disconnect is growing to the point where I think it has to break soon," Colas said.[/quote]

All misplaced partisan blame. The truth is, the obstructionist republican conservative right is totally responsible for the negative points you've made.
They had hoped to make Obama a one-term President...but they failed.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Can Obama Actually Crack Down On Corporate Tax Loopholes?

The Obama administration said on Thursday it will seek new limits on overseas tax avoidance by corporations in its forthcoming budget proposal, reprising an approach it has made before to try to raise government revenue via a tighter corporate tax code.

With the U.S. Congress gridlocked over fiscal policy, past efforts by Democratic President Barack Obama to crack down on what he sees as offshore corporate tax loopholes have largely failed. The latest measures could meet the same fate.

In its fiscal year 2015 budget, the administration will move to keep corporations from cutting their bills by playing one country's tax rules for hybrid securities off against another's, an administration official said on Thursday...
