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

Did you read the comments to the article? I was pleasantly surprised at how many people suggested Krauthammer be Dubya'd.
Did we read the same article and the same comments? Three people mentioned Krauthammer out of quite a number of other comments.

Constructive criticism of one's own party is healthy.

Liberal mouthpieces could learn from this guy.

Gaza: Background and Context

"Israel claimed that because it ended its occupation of Gaza in 2005 by with- drawing the Jewish settlements, continued attacks against it demonstrated Hamas’s true purpose: the destruction of the State of Israel. Therefore, the argument goes, the Jewish state had no other choice but to defend itself. Most of the critics of Cast Lead have not challenged this argument, focusing instead on the moral unacceptability of Israel’s methods.

Nonetheless, the Israeli claim to have had a just cause is unconvincing. First, as already described, Israel maintained both direct and indirect control over Gaza after its 2005 “withdrawal” and continued to inoict severe suffering on its inhabitants. Consequently, the inference that Hamas’s goal of destroying Israel was the only explanation for its attacks is baseless. Second, even if Israel had genuinely ended its occupation of Gaza, its inhabitants would have retained their right to continue the Palestinian struggle against the Israeli occupation and repression of the other Palestinian territories. As the 1992 Oslo agreement states, the West Bank and Gaza Strip are “a single territo- rial unit.” To believe otherwise is the equivalent of believing that, if in the 1770s, the British had withdrawn from New Jersey but continued to occupy the other twelve colonies, the residents of New Jersey would no longer have had the right to take up arms in support of American independence. The right of resistance against aggression, occupation, or repression is inherent in just war morality and, for that matter, in the common morality of mankind."

You're blowing hot air again.....
Do you find yourself being a more religious person these days?
A religious person? Religion is supposedly a force for positive good. Where can you look in the world and see that religion has been a force for positive good? Where can you look at humanity and say, "Humanity has been uplifted by a connection to a godly power"?
Meaning organized religion?
Corporations are religions. It depen is what you talk about with a religion.... Anything is a religion.
At one point, you took on Christianity in a very serious way, and then Judaism. Where are you now with all that?
Religion is something that is mostly outward appearance. Faith is a different thing. How many religions are there in the world? Quite a few, actually.
What is your faith these days?
Faith doesn't have a name. It doesn't have a category. It's oblique. So it's unspeakable. We degrade faith by talking about religion.
What do you take faith in?
Nature. Just elemental nature. I'm still tramping my way through the forest, really, on daily excursions. Nature doesn't change. And if there is any war going on on a big level today, it's against nature.

We're not talking about organized religion. At least I'm not.

Nature is where God can be seen and experienced the most. Nothing is more inspiring than creation itself.

Every Muslim is hateful, probably even right up to their children.
Liberia and Iraq were destroying themselves, and now so is Syria, they can't even make peace with themselves, and muslims are taught to beat up their mothers, fathers, sons, or daughters if they are no longer muslim, the Islamic regime needs to be destroyed.

Amnesty won’t magically make Hispanics more Republican

Conservative pundits as diverse as Sean Hannity and Charles Krauthammer also apparently agree that a path to citizenship is the only path to victory, or that green cards are a get-out-of-jail-free card for Republicans.

While we’re at it, we might as well purchase apologetic Hallmark cards for George W. Bush and John McCain, who were told to run, not walk, off a short pier when they advocated this loose-border strategy before.

“Republicans find religion on immigration reform,” writes the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza.“Is it too late?”

A better question: Is this finding religion or falling for an old Beltway superstition? The boosters of amnesty in exchange for the elusive Hispanic vote may be the witch doctors of American politics.

Let’s stipulate that some Republicans have said dumb and nasty things over the course of the immigration debate, which is obviously no way to win the votes of Hispanics and recent immigrants.

Worse, the immigration debate itself has frequently been miscast as a referendum on the acceptance of Hispanics in American society — one that has forced most Republicans to appear to be on the wrong side of that question in order to be on the right side of some woefully misguided legislation.

But caving on bad legislation — or writing watered-down Republican alternatives — to address this unfortunate misconception is the easy way out

Israel's Iron Dome defense system is working extremely well, few of the Hamas rockets are striking populated areas, casualties are low.

Israel's advanced guidance missiles are also working extremely well enabling pinpoint strikes at known Hamas locations.

The right’s new line: Obama has no mandate
The president won by wider margins than Bush in '04, but that hasn't stopped the right from dismissing his victory
.....So what would a real mandate look like? Krauthammer helpfully explained on Fox News Sunday the weekend after President Bush was reelected in 2004:
I think it was a huge issue that the president was weak in his first term. He had less of the power and strength and capital, as he speaks of, than he does today. And now that he’s been elected with a large majority, or a significant majority, and with a mandate, I think part of that mandate is to get the right judges, by his likes.
Bush won with 286 electoral votes to John Kerry’s 252, and with a 2.4 percent margin in the popular vote. Obama currently has 303 electoral votes to Romney’s 206, and he’s likely to add to that the 29 votes from Florida, which hasn’t been called yet, for a grand total of 332. It’s to early to tell on the popular vote, but it will be between 2 and 3 percent.

You can go to hell for lying, but its ok. If I were advising the Republicans, I'd tell them to step back and let the Demorats implode themselves and the country. They can't run anything without running it into the ground. They can't do it without tax money... So step back and watch the fun begin..

They said that about the Democratic Party a few times too.

Either you haven't been around long enough or you have a short memory.

Conservatives just need the right messenger. The message hasn't changed.

Rednecks are so removed from society that they don't mind voting for Obama, and don't really care about society.
