Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

How quickly you forget the real definition of racism and who is most responsible for perpetrating it before the Civil War and then until the mid 1960s.

There is no mandate in the Constitution.
The role of the President is to enforce the laws passed by Congress, not to dictate to Congress.
it's an ongoing problem.

but it doesn't help when Congress tries to dictate to the POTUS.

and where is that role stated? in some(more) right wing blogger interpretation of the Constitution?

so let's do this dance again....Who interprets the Constitution? The Court.

right wing Constitution noise is just noise unless it cites the Court. try it. it's called....credibility.

Laura Bush smoked
Yes, she did. But I don't recall too many conservative women running out to cut their hair to look like hers.

I'm actually surprised we didn't see a comeback of the pant suit during and after Clinton's time in office and more liberal women sporting the outfit to look like Hillary.

Thank goodness for that though, right?

Houston group says Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican

When we asked Raging Elephants for information to support its claim that King himself was a Republican, Kamau-Imani pointed us to a video made by the National Black Republican Association featuring one of King's nieces, Alveda King, founder of the faith-based group King for America. In the Sept. 14, 2008, video, she says: "I just want to share with you a little bit about my family and my history. My uncle Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his lifetime was a Republican, as was my father, his brother, Rev. A. D. King, and my grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King Sr."

.... The 2008 AP story about the Florida and South Carolina billboards included a statement from King's son, Martin Luther King III: "It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican. It is even more outrageous to suggest that he would support the Republican Party of today, which has spent so much time and effort trying to suppress African American votes in Florida and many other states."

Friends and associates of Martin Luther King Jr. also objected. The AP article says that the Rev. Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with King, "said there is no reason why anyone would think King was a Republican." Lowery told the AP that King almost certainly voted for Kennedy and that the only time he openly talked about politics was when he criticized Goldwater in 1964.

The story quotes Lowery as saying: "That was not the Martin I know, and I don't think they can substantiate that by any shape, form or fashion. It's purely propaganda and poppycock.... Even if he was, he would have nothing to do with what the Republican Party stands for today."

Following the Goldwater campaign, Republicans won five of the next six Presidential elections.
Goldwater simply stood for states' rights on social issues.

The south would have been shamed into humiliation and possibly submission had they been the only states to vote against it.

You and your party are made up of racists.

All these blacks would still be Republicans had it not been for the Great Depression and FDR offering them a big government plantation.
Everyone would have been a lot better off if FDR had placed the priority more on the free market and giving it a little more time to fix itself with minimal government assistance.
Now, look where we are. More people on government assistance than any other time in our history - and the numbers are growing.
"All these blacks ..."

So it comes down to President Obama being black?

I may actually agree with you about the pant suits. I wish we could get Peppy to stop wearing them, he has a bright green and orange set that is positively neon. Although it does go nicely with his flower hat.
