Just about the only response LIEberal democRATS have to their own racist past: blame the GOP.
"The House version of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by only 61 percent of that Chamber's Democrats versus 80 percent of the Republicans.
More importantly, it was Republicans that ended a Democrat filibuster preventing a vote on this bill in the Senate. 82 percent of Republicans voted for cloture versus 66 percent of Democrats.
In the final Senate vote on the Act, 82 percent of Republicans voted "Aye" versus 69 percent of Democrats.
Southern Democrats? 7 "Aye" – 87 "Nay"

Obama Gestapo in action...

Some drivers along a busy Fort Worth street on Friday were stopped at a police roadblock and directed into a parking lot, where they were asked by federal contractors for samples of their breath, saliva and even blood.

It was part of a government research study aimed at determining the number of drunken or drug-impaired drivers.

"It just doesn't seem right that you can be forced off the road when you're not doing anything wrong," said Kim Cope, who said she was on her lunch break when she was forced to pull over at the roadblock on Beach Street in North Fort Worth.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is spending $7.9 million on the survey over three years, said participation was "100 percent voluntary" and anonymous.

But Cope said it didn't feel voluntary to her -- despite signs saying it was.

"I gestured to the guy in front that I just wanted to go straight, but he wouldn't let me and forced me into a parking spot," she said.

Once parked, she couldn't believe what she was asked next.

"They were asking for cheek swabs," she said. "They would give $10 for that. Also, if you let them take your blood, they would pay you $50 for that."

At the very least, she said, they wanted to test her breath for alcohol.

She said she felt trapped.

"I finally did the Breathalyzer test just because I thought that would be the easiest way to leave," she said, adding she received no money.

Do you remember the poll back in July that showed Zimmerman is more popular than the president among GOP voters? That's because they relate to Zimmerman's immaturity and lack of control over his emotions.

Burns requested that President Obama read the 'Nicolay Version' of the Gettysburg Address, which was Lincoln's first draft of the Address and does not contain the phrase "under God."
So the president does this then rightwing blogs go ballistic and post the video of the president doing this and accuse him of omitting 'under God' from the speech.
I believe that is the definition of evil. You rightwingers are some sick puppies.

Oh yes, Darryl Issa has wasted millions of the taxpayers money for bogus hearings. That's what republicans always do. Waste money on bullshyt, rather that legislate.
"silly"
You are very fair on wasted monies are you? 650 million and counting wasted on the failed nobamakare program a majority of American's do not support? What, another 500 million wasted on the Solyndra debacle? A few 100 millions wasted on the unprovoked bombing of Libya? The what 10 trillion nobama will add to the national debt?

The only people who care about Zimmerman are those in the Obama-protecting media.

They now can focus on a different clown other than the one running the country into the ground.

text of written speech for teleprompter, not necessarily as delivered...
when Obama ad libs, he fcks up....
More than 100 million Americans have gotten free preventive care like mammograms and contraceptive care with no copays.  That’s all part of the law.  Because of you, millions of Americans will soon know the security of health care, in some cases for the first time, in states where governors have chosen to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.  Arkansas has covered almost 14 percent of its uninsured already.  Think about that -- 14 percent of the uninsured in Arkansas are already covered just because of the work that you did.  Oregon has covered 10 percent of its uninsured already. (Applause.)  Got some Oregon folks in the house. (Laughter and applause.) 
And what’s been encouraging is you’ve got some conservative Republican governors who, in some cases, have put aside politics to do the same.  They recognize this is too good a deal for the people of our state for us to pass up even if it’s not convenient politics for us.  And I'm proud of them for doing that.  And I hope more will, too. (Applause.)  Because nobody deserves to be denied health care because of politics. (Applause.)
And because of you, the Affordable Care Act created new marketplaces where Americans without health care, and Americans who buy it on their own, can shop and buy quality private insurance plans.  Insurers in the marketplace can no longer use your medical history to charge you more.  If you’ve got a preexisting condition, they’ve got to take you.  Folks who’ve been sick have finally the same chance to buy quality, affordable health care as everybody else.  And that's happening because of you. 
A lot of folks are going to qualify for new tax credits that will immediately bring down the price even further.  For a young person who’s trying several jobs until they find that one that sticks, that means they’re going to be able to buy insurance that gives them the freedom to pursue the careers that they want without fear that an illness or an accident will derail their dreams.
And most of the young people in this country who don't have health insurance currently, they’re going to be able to get it for less than their cell phone bill, less than their cable bill.(Applause.)  That's happening because of you.
So it’s important sometimes to just step back and say, all that stuff is already happening.  A lot of it got underreported, kind of crept up on people.  And as we move forward, you’ve got to keep that in mind. 
Now, there have been some tough parts, let’s face it.  The truth of the matter is, is that while ultimately, healthcare.gov , the website, is going to be the easiest place to shop for and buy these new plans -- and it’s getting faster and more stable -- it’s not where it needs to be yet.  I’m not happy about it, as you might imagine. (Laughter.)  I'm not happy about it because I know that people need health care and this is the right place to get it. 
I know you’re not happy about it because as long as the website is not working the way it should, it makes it harder for you to help them get covered.  And that’s unacceptable and I'm taking responsibility to make sure that it gets fixed.  And it will be fixed.  We're working overtime to get it fixed. (Applause.)

California home sales down for third month in a row...
Maybe where you are but not in most of California. Nobody wants to live in Temecula. Home sales are up in San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and other places.

This is what DataQuick has to say:

"An estimated 36,468 new and resale houses and condos sold statewide last month (October). That was up 1.2 percent from 36,027 in September."

"Indicators of market distress continue to decline. Foreclosure activity remains well below year-ago and peak levels reached in the last five years. Financing with multiple mortgages is low, while down payment sizes are stable, DataQuick reported."

Seems to me encouraging this is much more hateful than giving selflessly with a cheerful heart than being forced to give to big government to waste on more corruption.

You are spot on. Under the disaster president nobama is we see;
- More American's needing food stamps
- Fewer American's paying Federal income tax
- Household incomes down
The above equals more people in need and folks earning less. president nobama's Utopia, he wants as many as possible dependent on the government, guaranteed voters for democrats with their hands out.
