Oh! I will play:

9-11-1857 In Utah:

Mormons slaughter over 150 men, women and young adults "since their not mormon."

The Mormons had called a truce after days of shooting, then turned on the unarmed settlers and butchered them in cold blood.

Rumor has it BY himself, as prophet and supreme leader of the cult, gave the order to murder.

June 9, 1964
Republicans condemn 14-hour filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act led by U.S. Senator and former Ku Klux Klansman Robert Byrd (D-WV), who served in the Senate until his death in 2010. At Byrd’s funeral, former Democrat President Bill Clinton said,“He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done come and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that’s what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians.”
June 10, 1964
Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.

Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) overcomes Democrat attempts to block 1965 Voting Rights Act; 94% of Senate Republicans vote for landmark civil right legislation, while 27% of Democrats oppose.

Still trying to figure out why Republicans are always called racist while Democrates are the defenders of everyone's rights.
Both sides have racist but this clearly outlines that for a party that continues to ignor the facts.

Mitt Romney's national lead over President Obama grew even more Thursday, with the latest Gallup survey showing the Republican nominee up 7 points -- as polling in the battlegrounds indicates the electoral map may be shifting in Romney's favor.

Could happen. Obama could drop another drone bomb on innocent civlians and then claim he killed the Benghazi terrorists. I would not put that past him. He did something similiar to Reverend Wright the last election although he did stop short of actually killing him.

MICHELLE O. HAS NO SELF CONTROL: As evidenced by the fact that she led the applause at the 2d presidential debate, when moderator Candy Crowley unprofessionally (and incorrectly) interrupted Romney to side with President Obama when he falsely asserted that he’d called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” since the day after it occurred.

One of the rules of decorum in the debate was that applause was not permitted (for obvious reasons). Can you imagine how the MSM would excoriate Ann Romney if she had done something so rude and inappropriate?

The lying bastard still hasnt told the truth about Libya. Ill tell you the truth. Obama is responsible for 4 dead Americans in Libya. Clinton as in William Jefferson, is responsible for letting Bin Laden go after he bombed the World Trade Center the first time and enabled Bin laden to strike again. Obama is a Major Liar. Buh wasnt responsible for the deficit Obama inherited. Clinton was. Bush had no choice but to go to war and protect our national security. And if Obama is still whinig about the deficit he inherited, get a clue that he is not going to do anything but double the deficit again as it exists today if he is re-elected. Obama knew he was inheriting a deficit when he decided to run for President. He is not experienced with budgeting and proof is that he wasted 1 billion dollars on trash tv when people are struggling to make ends meet. Where the hell do you think Obama got all of that money he wasted? From millionare and billionare celebs. How much of a tax break do they get. Who is Obama bullshitting anyway?

something you can explain to us right now is, how did our economy collapse while it had been under the complete oversight of the Democrats for 2 full years?
How could that possibly have happened? I'd be interested in reading your explanation.
I've already explained it to you once. The RICH did it. First the rich bankers gave out loans to people that should not have got them. Then those RICH bankers sold the loans to the RICH Wall St. hedge fund managers. Then the RICH hedge fund managers sold the crap to the world. When it all when bad because the people couldn't pay their loans BUSH bailed them out along with Wall St. That's it.
The RICH have destroyed America. Poor people don't make loans the RICH do. Poor workers in a factory don't close it and send their jobs to China. The RICH CEOs do that. Poor workers at Staple's make minimum wage while the RICH Mitt makes $57,000.00 per day. How can an income of $57,000.00 per day be justified for creating jobs you pay the workers $58.00 a day?

Yes indeed Mile!

The media is corrupt. A recent poll revealed 60% of American no longer trust them. Now Fox News (Sky News - same company) has more viewers prime time than CBS, CNN & MSNBC combined.

For newspapers, the New York Times is not trusted and circulation had declined.

Paul Ryan withdraws endorsement after controversial rape statement
VICTORIA CAVALIERE
Thursday, October 11, 2012
A Wisconsin lawmaker lost the endorsement of Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan on Thursday after he claimed that “some girls, they rape so easy.”
Freshman Rep. Roger Rivard told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his comments, first made back in December to Chetek Alert newspaper, had been taken out of context.
The newspaper quoted him as saying his father warned him "some girls rape easy,” meaning girls could decide they regretted a sexual encounter and call it rape.
Seeking to clarify the remarks on Wednesday, Rivard again repeated them.
"He (my father) also told me one thing,`If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,'" Rivard told the Journal Sentinel. "Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she's not going to say,‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.' All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she's underage. And he just said,`Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,' he said,‘they rape so easy.'"
Hours later, Rivard’s camp issued a clarification to the clarification, calling rape a “horrible act of violence.”
But the backlash was quick and severe. Rivard, who is locked in a tight race with Democratic opponent Stephen Smith, lost the support of key Republican figures, including Paul Ryan.
“State Representative Rivard's comments are outrageous and offensive," Ryan's congressional campaign spokesman Kevin Siefert said Thursday. "There is no place in our discourse for rhetoric such as this,” the statement adds.
