Funny you forgot to mention Bush started the war along with the Iraqi war which got over 5000 us servicemen killed

By the time Al Franken was sworn in on July 7, 2009, Ted Kennedy had not cast a Senate vote for about four months because he was terminally ill with brain cancer. (He died on August 25, 2009.) Robert Byrd was also hospitalized from May 18 through June 30, 2009 and may not have been well enough to attend Congress and vote for some time afterward. Thus the Democrats did not really have the 60 votes needed to break a filibuster until Kirk took office. Byrd (who died in June 2010) was also periodically too ill to attend and vote during the September 2009-February 2010 period, though I have not been able to confirm this with a quick Google.

You nailed it. This has nothing to do with "policy". It doesn't take a genius to figure out free stuff trumps good jobs every time, and once handed out, it's impossible to take away. Illegal aliens (et al), aren't here to become productive Americans, they're here for the free stuff (74%). They're not stupid, if voting Democrat insures free stuff, they're going to vote Democrat. Most college students know free stuff costs money, but when that burden can ostensibly be shifted to someone else, the "Evil Rich", then hell yeah, go for it, vote O-B-A-M-A!!
We live in a country of spoiled children and opportunistic parasites. Obama and social networking has coalesced these 'takers' into a dominate voting block, that's his genius. This is a Democrat Party with dubious intentions and they've instituted an intoxicating and insidious mechanism to insure their success,'free stuff'. Have you ever taken a lolly-pop away from a spoiled child?

Does anyone think Obamaís going to change course? Americaís is at a tipping point one being self-reliance, accountable/Responsible or Government!! This election reflects that itís tilting toward Government so why would Obama make any attempt to change its direction because Government equals Democrats!! Liberal compassion is defined as how much FREE STUFF can we give you for your Vote!!

How many dead on barry's watch? Seems you liberal socialist workers party people have stopped the daily count of our dead for some reason. Dead Americans under barry's watch just aren't important.
Why is that?

The civil rights movement, once a controversial left-wing fringe, has grown deeply embedded into the fabric of our national story. This is a salutary development, but a problematic one for conservatives, who are the direct political descendants of (and, in the case of some of the older members of the movement, the exact same people as) the strident opponents of the civil rights movement. It has thus become necessary for conservatives to craft an alternative story, one that absolves their own ideology of any guilt. The right has dutifully set itself to its task, circulating its convoluted version of history, honing it to the point where it can be repeated by any defensive College Republican in his dorm room. Kevin Williamsonís cover story in National Review is the latest version of what is rapidly congealing into conservatismís revisionist dogma.
The mainstream, and correct, history of the politics of civil rights is as follows. Southern white supremacy operated out of the Democratic Party beginning in the nineteenth century, but the party began attracting northern liberals, including African-Americans, into an ideologically cumbersome coalition. Over time the liberals prevailed, forcing the Democratic Party to support civil rights, and driving conservative (and especially southern) whites out, where they realigned with the Republican Party." Blow it out you're tired, lyin' ass as long as you choose, but I ain't buyin'.
Keep spreading the love, baby!

And everyone thought fat Kennedy got away with murder--in the end it will bite you in the butt just like the swimmer.

Look,I know you're embarrassed.
I have the highest regard to all that serve in our military & appreciate their service.
But really, when someone like you brags, it requires a footnote.
A little history lesson.
If you were a male between 18 & 26 in the 60's & early 70's, you were subject to the draft, unless you had a deferment such as a college deferment.
Those without a deferment were in the "pool" & local draft boards selected draftees (until the lottery changed it).
The National Guard became the first choice of those who thought they would drafted & did not want to win that trip to Vietnam. The Guard quickly filled up & to get in the Guard took money & political influence ( Ref GW Bush).
The options became:
1) Try to get a medical deferment - like get a big boil on your ass (the Limbaughian).
2) Go to college & not flunk out & hope its over after 4 years.
3) Join the Navy because unless you volunteer & get selected for river boat duty, you will likely never step foot in Vietnam.
4) Run in hide in another country - flee to Canada or hide out in England (Clinton) or France (Romney).
Now you had no influence to get in the Guard. So when you thought you might get drafted, you ran out & joined the Navy.
I rate that above those that fled to other countries but really, if there was no draft,. we all know you would not have enlisted. If you were truly interested to fighting in Vietnam, you would have enlisted in the Army or Marines.
When the lottery was done, I had a high school buddy whose birthday was number 1 - he dropped out of college & joined the Navy. Lots of kids did this. But in reality, they did it to avoid the draft.
He, like you, hid out in the Navy.

Blah...blah...blah... If you think the pride I have in my service to my country is "bragging", than so be it. I don't have to answer to you or any other peace queer. The fact remains that I served my country in time of war and you did not. People like you tried to undermine our efforts. I wonder how many of our soldiers and Marines died due to the confidence that was given to our enemies because of you and your friend's war protests and the fact that they knew that people like you didn't support them and, in fact, were against them, as was proven time and time again by the reception they received from people like you upon their return. You're a coward piece of sh't. Don't lecture me about serving my country.

Stay stupid Carol. The culture wars are over.
BTW, Rasmussen, FOX's favorite pollster, ranked 24th in their polling predictions. Not even close!
Two republicans misspoke in their zealousy to preserve life at all costs.

Do you know how many republican men there are?

Romney made it quite clear rape was an exception. Women should have been listening to him.

Obama started the war against women and made it the fiasco it became.

That's what they do...start fiascos right before elections.

We still can't afford Planned Parenthood and those adamently against abortion are still forced to pay for it.

Good job. Nice going. You still don't get it.
