<quoted text>Under Bush, 575 American soldiers died and fewer than 3,000 were wounded in Afghanistan. Under Obama, 1,405 soldiers have died and nearly 15,000 soldiers have been wounded. 70% of the deaths and nearly 80% of the injuries in Afghanistan have occurred under Obama’s watch.
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?
As the Republicans always run on tax cuts.

So now foreigners decide the future of the countries they invade and not theirs which they abandon...!?

This is the reason I'm xenophobic.

Borrow money from China and Russia to stock up on free contraceptives, do free abortions, provide free ARVs, and welfare.

<quoted text>I agree. Republicans should stop their attacks on women. They should follow the lead of female-respecting democrats like Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, John Edwards, Elliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner.
Thats a good one.

All taken on revolving credit like the subprime mortgage line of credit that Bill Clinton facilitated, homes many have now lost.

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!!
