What agenda?
Republicans in the House have absolute power to change Obama's agenda if they have the balls?
By the way, Fidel will be dead by 2016.
No. The nitwits can slow it down until the midterms.

With House ratings of 11%, a Democratic takeover will be easy.

If racists like you turn out, all the better

After that, it'll be all Obama, allthe time!!

As for Fidel, so will you be dead by 2016.

What's your point??

The Keystone Pipeline has not been approved because it is competition for Warren Buffett's BNSF Railway.
Obama did not approve the pipeline because the environmental studies were not yet complete.

He did approve the southern part. Texans are madder than Hell because most of the labor is not local & most of the pipe is not US made.

When the studies are complete & all is OK, the pipeline would likely be approved.

You people are so funny how you make up sh*t.

Yep, lets build a pipeline so Canada can get their oil to a port. Ever wonder why they didn't build a pipeline across Canada?

Colin Powell: GOP Holds 'Dark Vein Of Intolerance'

""Former Secretary Of State Colin Powell delivered some harsh words for the GOP as a whole on Sunday.

In an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press," Powell noted that there is a "dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party."

"What do I mean by that?," he explained. "What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities."

Powell specifically pointed to October 2012 comments by former Alaska Gov. and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin on the attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

"When I see a former governor say that the president is 'shuckin' and jivin'-- that's a racial-era slave term," Powell said, referring to Palin's words on Obama's response.

Powell added that Republicans had become too preoccupied with the candidate-selection process, losing sight of the group's overall message.

"You've got to think first about what's the party actually going to represent," Powell said. "If it's just going to represent the far right wing of the political spectrum, I think the party is in difficulty. I'm a moderate, but I'm still a Republican."

Powell was the first African American to fill the role of Secretary Of State, serving under President George W. Bush from 2001-05. Despite maintaining his allegiance to the Republican Party, Powell has been an ardent supporter for President Barack Obama, giving him a 2008 vote and a 2012 endorsement.

"I think we ought to keep on the track we are on," said Powell in October 2012, commending Obama on the economy and Iraq War.

Top Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu turned heads after the announcement, suggesting that Powell's Obama endorsement was motivated by race. That statement prompted former Powell Chief Of Staff Lawrence Wilkerson to make Republican-Party comments similar in nature to Powell's Sunday remarks.

My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people -- not all of them, but most of them -- who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable""

Ask the NAACP that question and every liberal news commentator on television. They should know. They assigned broad attributes to groups with skin color as an excuse to silence the opposition.
Should I go back and count the number of times just me, myself and I was called a racist at the beginning for daring to criticize Obama's presidency? Not to mention every single conservative on here? By every single liberal?
If a black republican won the presidency, do you think that would happen? I can assure you it wouldn't.

Some say it was because the kidnappers were more afraid of Reagan than Carter. After all that time the hostages were in capitivity and all of Carter's failed attempts to get them released, the timing does rather speak for itself.

They may be valid but does not represent where most Americans live. Most Americans have long ago moved past keeping racism in the forefront.
It's Obama and the liberals who keep bringing it up and, in the process, have done more to make it worse than to heal any residual racial divide.
So why do they do that? For what purpose other than to create more derisiveness on the issue and for no other reason than personal and political gain?
I'd really like to know.
First sentence is not true; President Carter said it well: the election of a black man as President has brought what was a simmering cauldron of racism to a rolling boil.
Why shouldn't we talk about it?

Ted Cruz and the 47 Percent

“For anyone who is a fan of limited government, for anyone who is a fiscal conservative and economic conservative, November 6, 2012, was an ugly, ugly day,” said Ted Cruz, the new United States senator, during his speech at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s biennial policy orientation.

With the legislature largely quiet on its second day of the 83rd session, the speech was the biggest political event in Austin today. Cruz has been touted as a rising star in the Republican Party for several years, and national conservatives saw his election as one of the few bright spots for the GOP last year—a view that the Texas audience, which greeted Cruz with a standing ovation, clearly shared. Yet Cruz had some critical words for his party, and his message, which he’s calling “opportunity conservatism,” that marks a shift in tone for Texas Republicans, if not in policy implications.

Cruz started the speech by explaining that he disagreed with accounts of the November elections that concluded that Republicans had been too extreme, or that the American people had given up on conservatism as a concept. In fact, he added, more than half of voters, in exit polls, had said that government was doing too much. His explanation was that Republicans had simply come up short.“Margaret Thatcher famously said,‘first you win the argument, then you win the vote,” he said.“Republicans did neither.” He continued:“If you want to sum up what was wrong with the election, it was ‘47 percent.’”

This is a diagnosis that Cruz has given before, notably in an op-ed in the Washington Post last week. In his view, Democrats have made the case that the United States is divided between the haves and the have-nots, and that the Republicans are the party of the plutocrats. Not only have Republicans failed to contest that, they’ve occasionally seemed to agree with it; that’s what happened with Mitt Romney’s now-notorious comments, at a fundraiser, that 47 percent of Americans pay no federal income tax and therefore expect government to help take care of them. In his speech, Cruz took pains to say that he didn’t think Romney meant it the way it came out; people are bound to bungle some of the things they say. But the comments nonetheless corroborated suspicions about Republicans, and sealed the party’s fate, at least for 2012.
