...and you can wish upon a star, too, little boy.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference how dumb you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

Free Cellphones, Food Stamps, Paid Mortgage, Amnesty, Affirmative Action,......

yeah, the Boy Messiah floats in the nighttime sky for you but rides hard like one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse before those hard working, law abiding Americans.

technically? TECHNICALLY?

Since when does the town drunk get into conversational technicalities? You can't even type straight much less tie your shoes. Technically, you're a zipper fondler with sore knees.

Once again, the truth hurts, as the poor become even poorer under Obama.

Trickle up poverty sucks.

My favorite part of Mr. Obama's speech was when he used the names of Seneca Falls, Selma, & Stonewall in America's move towards equality. We are moving forward in the struggle for full equality for all Americans.

Seneca Falls (women's rights)
Selma (African American rights)
Stonewall (gay rights)

Quoting Colin Powell who is talking about Republican party that once was, now it's in self destruct mode.
"Why aren't Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out," said Powell. "These idiot presentations continue to be made and you don't see the senior leadership of the party say,'No, that's wrong.' In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they're encouraging it."

Powell admitted that his recent attacks on the GOP have left people wondering why he's still a Republican. He explained, "I grew up under Ronald Reagan and Cap Weinberger and George Schultz and George Herbert Walker Bush - that's the Republican party I know...and I think we've drifted from that."....Yes by a loooong way!

Why are you not getting this? President Obama doesn't care about more white people having jobs. He cares about white people paying for the sins of the past and believes hardworking black people will understand if they, too, have to make sacrifices for this cause.
He doesn't care about capitalism or even how and if it works. He cares about leveling the playing field and opposing any opposition to a democrat-led government micromanaging the people even if it means alienating half the country.
He doesn't care about honesty or transparancy. He cares about demonizing and marginalizing to have the power to carry out his agenda of transforming this country into his personal vision.
That was just the first four years. Now that reelection is not an issue, we'll see a "new and improved" version of the above.
The only thing transparent about this president is his reliance on people like you pretending they don't see this.
Every single one of his decisions involves a weaker economy, a weaker military and a constant reminder of the sins of the past.
We basically have a President Jeremiah Wright who looks and sounds like Barack Obama.
Think about it - just for a minute.
Carol, you've been spouting that same delusional nonsense for as long as I've been following this thread.
The truth is that President Obama is for all the people, not just the wealthy for whom the GOP panders.
People like me see a lot Carol, I see how people like you want to deny citizens of equal rights because of who they love and choose to marry. I see how GOP state governments tried to suppress the votes of minorities. I paid attention to the plight of the Sensata workers in Illinois as Bain dismantled their plant and shipped it to China. I see hoe the GOP governor and legislature in Virginia passed a law requiring women to submit to an invasive and unnecessary medical procedure if they chose to terminate a pregnancy.
I don't know what happened to turn you into a bitter bigot and quite frankly I don't much care. People like you are increasingly irrelevant.

Sadly, the objective in any political coup is to divide and conquer.
The only thing this president and his followers can hope for is that it will work and not backfire eventually.
Sure stupid, Romney's remarks about the 47% and Ryan's remarks about a nation of takers wasn't divisive at all. Fortunately the majority of voters saw right through this. Only idiots like you bought into it.
