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

<quoted text>shall i post the pay structure again for the top executives of a dying company? 300% pay raises?
ok...no sarcasm here. just a real question. what company would go into business if they didn't make a profit? thats my question.

i dont think its right when mega corporations make extravagant amounts of money at the expense of their employees and to their buying public. i do think that this applies to the major majority of companies in America. i also STRONGLY agree that the unions have priced themselves out of jobs, especially the hiring of new employees. And then look! there goes another company, outsourcing to china or thailand or india.

Jokes about rednecks irritates the Tea Party:
So here goes some of their most hated.
You might be a redneck if your wife can climb a tree faster than your cat.
Your house doesn't have curtains but your truck does.
You consider your license plate personalized because your father made it.
You've used a toilet brush to scratch your back.
You missed your 5th grade graduation because you were on jury duty.
You think fast food is killing a deer at 65.
You let your 12 year old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.

The instinct to turn to Rubio primarily because of his ethnicity reeks of desperation, which is hardly appealing, and it announces to rank-and-file voters that party and movement leaders want to resume fruitless efforts to pander to groups that are supposedly “natural” Republicans. Because his foreign policy preferences represent some of the worst that the modern GOP has to offer, he would be hard-pressed to broaden the Republican coalition. As Michael said last night, Republicans need to become and be perceived as capable of governing well, and only then can its coalition grow. There are not many people looking for a new Joe Lieberman to lead them into Syria, or wherever the next conflict might happen to be, and there will be many conservatives who won’t want to support a protege of Jeb Bush. It’s not difficult to imagine how rallying behind Rubio could make things worse for the GOP among its reliable supporters and backfire among those outside the party that he is supposed to be able to attract.

Oh...so it's desperation when republicans choose someone of Hispanic American ethnicity to represent our party but not when democrats choose an African American?

Mark Rubio has been a rising star in the republican party for some time.

Rubio was elected at the age of 28 to the Florida House of Representatives. He won re-election to a second full term as well as a third and fourth full term.

Rubio championed a major overhaul of the Florida tax system. He served as Speaker of the Florida House. He became House Majority Leader in 2003.

Committee assignments

Joint Legislative Committee on Article V

2001-2003:
Banking Claims

So what makes Rubio any less qualified to become the president as Obama?

So why did they have to vote to keep "God language" in their platform and to recognize Jeruselem as the capital of Israel?
That was pretty bizarre, you have to admit. Like other democrats.
Half the audience knew that the DNC was caving to FOX-fueled
GOP pressure. They didn't boo God. They booed adding it to the platform. God wasn't in question in religion, but in politics.
In this country we aren't a theocracy, no matter how much the Gop and Fox want to ram it down your throat. It's you Republican's who use God to garner votes no matter what Bill O tells you.

The Democrats are exactly like adolescents in an arrested developemntal state. Every single one I know is an immature slacker. Like in Jr. High, they are jealous and think with a teen brain. Absolutely no ability to reason as an adult.

Usually frustrated with their lot in life due to being lazy and bad choices they made in life. Poor souls who are angry and vile.

I don't know who, rep or dem, is better but I know one thing no one would see that some day Afganistan soldier would turn back their guns and kill our soldiers -- Leaving Irag and Afga is right thing to do. Never put our soldiers in third world country again.
