The sun, which we believed simply turned itself off at night, has been secretly rising in such places as North Korea and Iran while republicans weren't looking? Well, I for one think this redistribution of American sunshine has got to stop. That's our sunshine and we worked hard for it and the very idea that some people should get all they want for free is just another reason why Obama is the worst president ever.

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.

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.

President Obama is campaigning on a platform that constantly touts everyone "paying a fair share and having a fair shot." Unfortunately for those that do not belong to a politically-favored class, the Obama Administration gets to determine what is fair. This was evidenced during the GM bankruptcy process where groups that were supposed to have equal legal standing saw that some are considered far more equal than others. GM bondholders were moved to the bottom of the list as the Obama-friendly UAW had its claims given precedence. And, in perhaps the clearest and most egregious example of cronyism and political payback, non-unionized retirees at GM's bankrupted parts maker, Delphi, had their pensions sacrificed as the Obama Administration saw to it that UAW pensions were protected.

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.

August 4, 1965
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. Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent African-Americans from voting, signed into law; higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor

February 19, 1976
Republican President Gerald Ford formally rescinds Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt’s notorious Executive Order authorizing internment of over 120,000 Japanese-Americans during WWII

September 15, 1981
Republican President Ronald Reagan establishes the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to increase African-American participation in federal education programs

June 29, 1982
Republican President Ronald Reagan signs 25-year extension of 1965 Voting Rights Act

August 10, 1988
Republican President Ronald Reagan signs Civil Liberties Act of 1988, compensating Japanese-Americans for deprivation of civil rights and property during World War II internment ordered by FDR

November 21, 1991
Republican President George H. W. Bush signs Civil Rights Act of 1991 to strengthen federal civil rights legislation

August 20, 1996
Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law

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.

The U.S. Census Bureau wrote that in 2010, the female-to-male earnings ratio of full-time, year-round workers was 0.77."
But the Obama ad takes a solid statistic and describes it incorrectly. The campaign is wrong to say that the 77-cent figure describes the pay differences between men and women "doing the same work."
The 77-cent figure compares all male and female workers, regardless of their occupation.

In a reversal of traditional gender roles, young women now surpass young men in the importance they place on having a high-paying career or profession, according to survey findings from the Pew Research Center.

Say you're sorry.
Why? I'm not even sure what you're trying to say Carol__do you not understand what equal pay for equal work means?

Should add that region plays a role in pay scales___for instance , snow plow drivers in Buffalo make nearly a hundred times as much as snow plow drivers in Orlando.

It basically went into collapse staring late 2006 & then the recession formally hit the 4th quarter of 2007.

Please list the legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that cause this collapse. You know, legislation that the Republicans did not filibuster & Bush signed into law.

I keep asking & you keep running.

The money PBS gets helps smaller rural stations carry that programming. It doesn't go to Sesame street as they get enough sponsorship.
