Isn't it ironic that JFK saw Vietnam as a way to rectify his blunder in Cuba and the Bay of Pigs?

Which led to John Kerry testifying our
Vietnam vets acted like Genghis Khan?

A democrat got us into Vietnam to save face, another democrat became the voice of the atrocities that were committed in that war to save face and now that same democrat is being nominated for Secretary of Defense.

Seems a bit odd.

Gingrich Tells The Truth About Swift Boat Veterans

Responding to a relentless wave of Iowa attacks ads produced by a Mitt Romney-friendly Super PAC, an angry Newt Gingrich last week challenged Romney to debate the "dishonest" commercials. Over the holiday weekend, Gingrich said of the ads, "I feel Romney-boated."

As the Associated press noted:

Gingrich's nautical attack was a reference to a 2004 TV ad campaign by a group called the "Swiftboat Veterans for Truth" that bloodied Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.

Gingrich's turn of phrase was telling. Why? Because this was Newt Gingrich, a leader of the modern-day conservative movement, presidential candidate, and proud Republican partisan adopting language that acknowledged the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth are synonymous with unsubstantiated campaign attack ads. With his "Romney-boated" comment, the former Republican Speaker of the House reinforced what progressives have been saying for years.

Republican Fantasy Candidates Did the Right Thing by Staying Out

The politicians that stayed out of the 2012 race probably had a better understanding of the Republican primary electorate and the overall electorate than many of their admirers and cheerleaders. They recognized that Romney wasn’t as vulnerable or easy to beat in the primaries as many supposed, and they may have realized earlier than most in their own party that Obama wasn’t likely to lose. After all, why should they engage in a difficult and likely losing effort against Romney just for the chance to challenge a reasonably popular incumbent president?

Did the fantasy candidates do their party and their country a disservice by staying out of the race? That doesn’t seem right. I can’t imagine how a party could be more poorly served than by having ill-prepared candidates lured into the race against their better judgment. If these politicians were unwilling to enter the race, they wouldn’t have done their party any favors by doing so grudgingly and in spite of their own reservations. Had more than one of them agreed to run, it likely would have split up the conservative vote even more, so at most they probably would have prolonged the contest without changing the outcome.

<quoted text> Sorry it is in Texas's constitution. Any state has the right to succeed from the country just as we as citizens have the right to overthrow the government if we do not like it. That is the main reason for the first and second amendment. Of course most of the press has decided to join the government against the people. The big problem, and this always happens, is the same people who help kill freedom are always the first ones killed. They never learn.
What kind of press was around in 1860? "people who help kill freedom are always the first ones killed"??? Could you give a few examples or analogies in support of this statement? I know you're trying to be profound and I was hoping to give you another chance to be coherent. What keeps you from being a domestic terrorist?

What a crock.

Ever heard of New York and California?

Home to many Billionaires, Democrats, tax payers.

Top 400 people in the USA worth $1.7 Trillion.

That is an average of $2.5 Billion each person.

Some worth $50 billion each.

Lot of blue on that list. They say: tax us, we can afford it. We voted for Obama! We love what he's done with the place.

Bottom line: Another condescending, mad and angry liberal still on a victory lap, hehe. Take another one you. In comparison to 1917, the mobility of "the rich" is much more efficient today, so there are only so many more limits to what you can get hold off that's mine.

26 other states have also put up the petitions.and they will collect names till 12/9 . I doubt the petitions will go very far but it will be intresting to see just how many patroits are willing to make a stand again st the government tyranny that has betrayed the constitution that they swore an oath to uphold. There is allready enough signatures to force a response from obama, his words should be chosen carfully as not to start a revelution.

<quoted text>Obama, Senate floor, 2002:[A]dding a – an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.… I think it’s important to understand that this issue ultimately is about abortion and not live births.

Obama, Senate floor, 2001: Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a – a child, a nine-month-old – child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it – it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.

...you've been duped, Homer, sorry to say.
Big IF THIS IS A CHILD. A fetus has no chance at sustained life independent of support.

Libs don't want anyone telling them how to behave but they have no problem controlling others ,demanding that someone else pay for the outcome of their actions.
So, how does one prevent an unwanted pregnancy.

Ummmm, let me think..........

Controlling others. That funny coming from a party wanting to control a woman's body, who can have sex, and who can get married.

You trying to be the Florida Cracker Medium now, dumb carol? Got any more to channel from JFK? How's Marilyn doing or something? Eisenhower, I believe started out involvement in Vietnam...John Kerry served in a war and told the truth about it when he came home, only to be Swiftboated by a draft-dodging idiot with money and his unscrupulous brain for hire...want to put some names in there? Does Bush in hiding and Rove opening Karma's bill help any?
