Ever sine Dave beat you into the ground with your own stupidity, you've been acting more and more like Ed.

No useful content, just snipe at those who've made you look foolish in discussion.

That's just about everyone on this thread.

Um'teen televised GOP debates and nomination of Romney Ryan was an opportunity to present ideas.
Voter reject republicans based on their economic record of deregulation leading to the Bush Stock Market crash of Oct 2008.
Voters seem not to trust republican efforts to keep American from voting.
President Obama today with many mentions of God and inclusion of Christianity.
President Obama carried the Roman Catholic vote.
Romney played it too safe. Didn't have the personality to get the message of urgency across that was needed.

Once again, Patrick is incorrect.

The voters of California changed the state constitution to prohibit homosexual marriage.

The blacks and Hispanics don't like you guys.

Dweeb IS an oilman.

He's the oil change technician at the local Harley dealership!!

His lies and outright insanity has grown old, real fast.

Ignore him, he'll eventually go away.

Even Carol stopped talking to him.

Dufus, that was enacting an EPA law. You know, a piece of legislation that passes Congress like the constitution requires. Each affected state had input, and thier wishes were effected in accordance with the legislation that became the law that drives the EPA regulations.... dufus.

Try again.

Actions speak louder than words.
It is right and noble to honor a man who believed a man's character should not be judged by the color of his skin.
Too bad most liberals apparently don't believe that.
Otherwise, race would never have been part of the dialogue - started and perpetrated by liberals.
In a documentary entitled "Citizen King," the leader is shown speaking to a church audience, as he prepared his nonviolent army of poor people for Washington.

It didn't cost the nation a penny to open lunch counters. It didn't cost the nation a penny to give us the right to vote," he said. "But it will cost the nation billions to feed and house all of its citizens. The country needs a radical redistribution of wealth."

Some of King's closest aides are baffled at the argument that King opposed affirmative action policies. They say the public record is clear: King openly supported such policies.

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the group he led, created a program called Operation Breadbasket that called for companies to hire a certain number of blacks. In King's book "Why We Can't Wait," he recounts his travels to India where he expressed approval for that government's attempts to remedy the historical discrimination of "the untouchables" through compensatory programs.

King also argued that just as the nation had given preferential treatment to soldiers returning from World War II through the GI Bill, it should do the same for blacks in the realms of jobs and education
"A society that has done something special against the Negro for hundreds of years must now do something special for the Negro," King wrote in "Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community."

Conservatives don't like to talk about that version of King, say those who knew the civil rights leader.

What's happening to King's message is part of a larger trend in American history: a deliberate attempt to "misremember" race, says Branch, the civil rights author.

"That is the temptation of American history, to say we don't need to deal with race anymore. We misremembered the Civil War for a 100 years, thinking that it had nothing to do with slavery and that the glorious old wonderful South was like 'Gone with the Wind,' " Branch says.

You're avoiding answering the question. I'll give it to you again:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(a source of money is required to answer this question)

You do realize that if this question isn't answered the government collapses and the existence of the United States ends, right?

So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Romney defeated the other Republican candidates and was the final choice of the GOP.
