"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 ...
<quoted text> First, to preface what a "present" vote means: Because it takes affirmative votes to pass legislation in the Illinois Senate, a "present" vote is tantamount to a "no" vote. A "present" vote is generally used to provide political cover for legislators who don't want to be on the record against a bill that they oppose. Of course, Obama isn't the first or only Illinois state senator to vote "present," but he is the only one running for President of the United States. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/200... Now, here is a full list of Obama's seven 'present' votes on issues related to abortion: 1997 Votes SB 230 Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. Senate approved bill 44-7, with five senators voting present, including Obama. HB 382 Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. House version, passed Illinois State Senate, adopted as law. Under the bill, doctors who perform partial-birth abortions could be sent to prison for one to three years. The woman would not be held liable. 2001 Votes HB 1900 Parental Notice of Abortion Act. Bill passed 38-10, with nine present votes, including Obama. SB 562 Parental Notice of Abortion Act. Bill passed Senate 39-7, with 11 present votes, including Obama. SB 1093 Law to protect Liveborn children. Bill passed 34-6, with 12 present, including Obama. SB 1094 Bill to protect children born as result of induced labor abortion. Bill passed 33-6, with 13 present, including Obama. SB 1095 Bill defining "born alive" defines "born-alive infant" to include infant "born alive at any stage of development." Bill passed 34-5, with nine present, including Obama. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker... Because he did not vote to ban partial birth abortions or did not vote to support the born alive act, he voted no. You can't vote present on such important issues if you want them to be passed.
ImaginaryDave gets spanked again.
carol, Liberals can't be educated with facts and very few lucky ones can be deprogrammed.
<quoted text>Just a guess but most pundits are now reporting that Rice's explanations were straight off talking points prepared by , who else, the CIA. Damned if it doesn't look like the CIA might have had reason to fudge the truth a tad bit__Oh my__waddaya know? Maybe we'll eventually learn, maybe not__presently the media is caught up in "sex, lies and e-mails." I would rather see John Kerry in the role of Secretary of State.
<quoted text>The kid Ryan has bootprints all over his scrawny azz. The (R) party honchos are already stating that Ryan cost them the election. The kid is a very poor liar__how he survived in politics this long speaks to his Polack district.
Old white R men will whine about anything..especially any younger, intelligent one with a nice smile lol. Good that he's a poor liar, we need more like him--ones that spend MORE time working--and LESS time having to suck up to stupid, while this nation crumbles.
What'd'ya think of the possible replacement for Hillary--that one ozombieregimer that apparently doesn't know a terrorist attack from a parade.....
<quoted text> Lol...you're one of the more stupid fcks on here. What does your post have to do with Detroit's financial woes?
What do the City of Detroit's financial woes have to do with the auto industry? Ford Motor Co world headquarters is located in Dearborn which by the way is not Detroit. Get a fkn clue Emutt, Hamtramck, Southfield, Livonia, Grosse Point etc are not Detroit.
<quoted text> The election is over. boy is that ever getting old. this is worse than the Bush deniers. next thing you know FOX will have Karl come back and declare Mitt the winner of Ohio.
Look beneath your bed tonight. Sean Hannity could be there planting a radioactive pile to slowly kill you in your sleep. Rush Limbaugh has probably poisoned your water supply and Sarah Palin is going to try seducing you in your sleep.
It's a jungle out there for paranoid Liberal conspiracy theorists.
Don't look in the mirror. There might be a conspiracy theorists in there coming to get you, too.

Have you always had this much trouble keeping track of conversations? Go back and look at what my post was in reply to. Wow!
<quoted text> You obviously are as you now try to change the subject yet again. This was about abortion & contraceptives. Your tax money does not pay for abortion. However, your insurance premiums likely do. When you pay your premiums you help pay for smokers, druggies, fat people who over eat, etc etc etc. The idea that you think access to contraception has no effect on abortion is what I am talking about.
is it that hard for you to understand that we don't care what you do as long as its you who take responsibility for your own actions.or are you to stupid to get that through your twisted little mind? Public funding of planned child killers is tax money paying for abortion. Now if you're unable to comprehend anything other than your simple statement I'll agree with you on that contraception does have an effect if people are responible enough to use it and if they wish to have sex they can pay for it themselves. I had no part in their actions and should not be forced to pay for it.
<quoted text> Why are CDC abortion rates so different than yours?
You are another one of those cheap liars peddling your tripe here. The CDC lists black abortion at 37% even though blacks comprise only 13% of the population. This is the highest rate of abortions among all races and ethnicities in America.
Go peddle you poop to the Boy Messiah crowd. They'll believe anything.
<quoted text>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?
First, it's Bush-Bashing and now you're going to reach all the way back to Eisenhower and blame him for JFK's stupidity. You guys never stop with the diarrhea, do you? It's how Democrats get elected.
