Can anyone imagine the Repub outrage and DBs post had this came from Obama? The Repubs would have been typing as fast as possible talking about Freedom and Rights and Communist and every other "ism" they could have come up with.

Text, please. I'd like to read it.
Your indoctrinated party line mantra just doesn't prove any point.
Post the text from the executive order.
Then, post text from the Constitution that gives the president the authority to write his own laws and issue edicts to the American people.
This "Bush did it, too" party line excuse doesn't wash.
Perhaps if Obama had ever read the Constitution in his life, he'd know a little about what he can and cannot do, instead of looking like an ignorant buffoon all the time.

No one has ever tried to take anyone's second amendment rights away.That's an excuse only, and meant to scare people. Republicans are basically a cowardly bunch to begin with. They want us to fight wars everywhere just as long as it's someone elses son or daughter doing the dying..Take Fox station for example...You would be hard pressed to find one military man or woman that works there...Yet they are war mongers galore. Republicans are getting less popular daily and they can only blame their own fanaticism.

Fine, burn the invite then, why subject your daughter to anything moderate/intelligent? Let her stick with the rightwing moronic stuff, you know the crap your preach at the dunner table, Fox News or the Republican National Convention.

I second that emotion! They're all hypocrits!

I read some comments about the Sandy relief; someone said his neighbor was a die hard teapartyer, but drove 100 miles to charge his laptop so he could claim his $300.00 Sandy relief money!
That just about sums it up.

She was there the first time too. Seeing a seminar by Condi Rice and another by General West will be more than enough reward for standing in the cold watching the president being sworn in for the second time. Besides in her old age she can tell her great grand children she was there both times when the worst president in US history was inaugurated. LMAO!!!

I'm pretty sure we all know someone, or have an odd relative that collects guns; I have a weird cousin that has an effing arsenal of weapons in his basement! No one knew about it until he hosted a family reunion a number of years ago! He brought one of my male cousins down into the basement and showed him! We were all creeped out after that, needless to say, no reunions were held there again; plus his son looked a little on the off side as well.
They are a powder keg, who knows what will set them off.

Who would have thought our first black president would single handedly destroy the Republican Party.
Pure genius!
Applause!!! Carol's still trying to make her case that the President doesn't like people!! Oh? Look how many people voted for him? I love this guy, he was the opening speaker when I went to see the President here:

Whatís your reaction to the angry people who are flooding your restaurantís Yelp page with bad reviews because you hugged the president?
You see the good and bad in people. Thatís whatís wrong with our country. I tell people, whether youíre Republican or Democrat, heís both of our president. He should be treated with respect, and thatís whatís wrong with our country right now. I donít think it has to be that way. Everyoneís entitled to their opinion, and you donít have to be ugly with yours. You know what Iím trying to say? You have the right to do what you want to do. Iím all for free speechódonít get me wrong there. But if you donít have nothing good to say, then donít say nothing. You know what Iím trying to say? Youíre entitled to your opinion. Exercise your vote. Thatís the bottom line.


And youíre a registered Republican?
I am registered Republican, believe it or not. Thatís why I think thereís all the uproar.


Who are you voting for in this election?
Iím going to vote for Obama. The reason why I voted for him last time is I liked his enthusiasm. I like that he tried to get young people to vote, and involved in community service and politics. I just thought he was the right man at the right time. When he came in today with that same enthusiasm when he came in initially. I still think heís the right guy at the right time.

What's next for you gun idiots, Laser guns, how about we all have our own A bomb. The inability of those on the right to realize that they are being programmed and used daily is mind boggling. And old flack thinks that all others are stupid. Moron personified.

Take an "assault weapon", remove the pistol grip, and the firearm is no longer an assault weapon.
That's how the language in the original assault weapons ban read thanks to the efforts of NRA lobbyists.

The muzzle velocity of the Bushmaster .223 is roughly the same as the muzzle velocity of the M-16/AR-15. That the military version can be fired on full automatic is a moot point, both versions can fire at high rates as semi automatics.

buffoon....

Executive Order 10730: Desegregation of Central High School (1957)

This executive order of September 23, 1957, signed by President Dwight Eisenhower, sent Federal troops to maintain order and peace while the integration of Central High School in Little Rock, AR, took place.

http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php...

and despite all the noise from people like DB, some white folks took one on the chin.

you should see the list of executive orders.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_S...

the first George was also a 'buffoon'. and didn't he help write the Constitution? imagine that.

What you don't get is you don't hit 25% of your targets. Each target has a 25% chance of getting hit!
