Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Last week, Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock argued in a debate that women who have been raped should not have access to abortion services because their pregnancies are a “gift from god.” As a survivor of childhood sexual violence, I disagree with him completely.

My name is Dawn Hill. Though I am old now, there was a time when I was young and carefree as you perhaps are now or can remember being in your childhood. Childhood should be a happy and carefree time for all our children, but my mother found her new husband, my stepfather, much more important. He forever took the joy away from my life when I was just 11 years old: He began molesting me and continued until he began raping me when I was 13

Mr. Mourdock last night said:“I came to realize life is that gift from God, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape. It is something that God intended to happen.”

I became pregnant, contrary to the "scientific theories" of many modern Republicans. Not only was the experience loathsome and painful, it was also impossible for me to deal with or talk about because of the times: in the fifties, abortion was illegal. Illegal in the same way the Republican Party platform states it wants to make abortion now by constitutional amendment and just as Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has suggested casually he would “be delighted” to return to.
Please, take a moment to travel back to the fifties with me.

It's readily apparent that Carol is capable of making valid points and backing them up with a source. And you are only capable of responding with some type of insult and the use of the word "hate." Now, who do you truly feel is the more convincing in a discussion?
If only every right wing 'story' about Jarrett was true then I guess I wouldn't be such a sarcastic SOB.

Don't even ask me to discard that which is not true for what is. Goes to overall credibility don't you think?

What is Obama hiding in Benghazi?
Is he hiding gross misconduct of his administration?
Treason?
Burglary vs Homicide

Libya/Benghazi is making Watergate look like a low classified misdemeanor.

The fact they watched this atrocity unfold while sitting on their hands is unbelievable.

Then again, this administration has ordered the assassination of American citizens with complete disregard for due process, so...

Just remember when you pull the lever for Romney:
1. Romney will shut down FEMA and redirect taxpayer money to private contractors
2. Romney will sign any and all anti abortion legislation
3. Romney will give a tax cuts to the wealthy that the middle class will pay for; again
4. Romney will dismantle the EPA; making way for further pollution of our fields and streams; will destroy our natural resources drilling for oil
5. Romney will end Medicare and Medicaide and privatize Social Security
6. Romney endorse Mourdock; the Rapepublican who said a rapists c hild is a gift from God
7. Romney will sign the Personhood bill, outlawing contraception, the morning after pill and abortion.
Wow, he's got my vote!

Ah. The man doesn't say what you want to hear so you dismiss him out of hand.

Big surprise. You're just as biased as any other right wing 'winner' on this thread.

Do you think drug dealers take drugs? It's a business, and one of the biggest ones Peppy. Pres. Bush gave the Taliban $400 million to eradicate the poppy fields. HA! It was seed money! Heroin production has increased something like 200%; drug sales buy the arms; the next biggest business.
It's got nothing to do with drug culture and if you don't realize the magnitude of money that comes from these ventures, then perhaps you should do some reading about it.

News update: Homer lost his basement, but he gained an indoor pool. Flack's windmill has generated enough power to last him a month.

Have not seen any apologies to Flack just yet. He was absolutely correct about the storm.

Your Repubs voting to take money away from Embassy security. You all are nothing but a bunch of Repub Hypocrites.
.
House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012....Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.
Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.

He's not. You are buying into rightwing propaganda. The only ones still chewing on this bone is Fox.
Nothing about it anywhere else at all.

The Plus in Romney's 0 Percent Black Vote Support

Another insidious GOP ploy with its eye on black voters is to bankroll and promote a handful of visible and vocal black conservatives to recite all the stock criticisms of Obama, civil rights leaders, and Democrats. This creates the deliberate and false impression that a substantial number of blacks don't support the Democratic Party despite the polls.
