That's powerful.<quoted text>
See how it has stayed above the line since June, 2009? That's the broadest measure of our economy, you argue that its worse today than it was in Jan, 2009 when the growth rate was -7%.

But instead they waste all of their time relentlessly trying to find any and everthing that will reflect bad on the Democrats. Seemingly totally unaware of their many short comings, like equal rights for women, discrimination with Blacks and other ethnic groups, and all the while boasting of their religious and moral superiority and self righteous indignations. Their total love affair with the very rich and corporate America. Which was more than proven with selecting a smug tight azzed Richie Rich as their candidate for president.

Then maybe you should get your history straight bonehead.
Percentage wise, more Democrats voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than Republicans.
You just lie & say chit like this now for your class race & warfare purposes, Boris.

More than 50 percent of Americans believe abortion should legal in all or most cases while 70 percent want the landmark Supreme Court ruling of Roe v. Wade to be upheld, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday night.
Fifty-four percent said abortion should be legal either always or most of the time, marking the first time since the question was included in the NBC/WSJ poll in 2003 that a majority believes it should be legal. Thirty-one percent indicated that abortion should always be legal, while 23 percent said it should be legal most of the time.
The 70 percent who said that Roe should be protected included 57 percent who feel strongly about upholding the decision. Only 24 percent said the decision should be overturned.
Monday's poll was released on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Roe. A survey released last week from Pew showed that a comparably large majority of 63 percent does not want the historic 1973 ruling reversed.
so are conservatives on the wrong side of guns yet?
at least they have that....today.

pointing out other people's so called mistakes is not a political strategy that will win elections.
a 30 year old agenda also won't get it done.
they move center right or they move out.

Jimmy is A-typical of those conservatives that are determined to bend, twist and distort while purposely never seeing the big picture. While they are in the process of ignoring the actual facts they are being racist in implying that Blacks in America aren't smart enough to know which party is best for them and America.

Well, that Nixon doesn't align very well with this Nixon.
In 1952 and 1956, a majority of blacks backed the Republican Party. After the landmark 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education was handed down, Eisenhower ordered desegregation of the Washington DC public schools. In 1957 and 1959, Eisenhower proposed strong civil rights bills to enforce the long-neglected 15th Amendment and give Southern blacks the right to vote. Senate Southern Democrats filibustered the bills. When the Southerners demanded that violators of the new civil rights bill have the right to jury trials (before all-white Southern juries), Democratic senator John F. Kennedy voted with the South, while Republican vice president Richard Nixon broke a tie in the Senate to kill the Southern amendment.
The Nixon years witnessed the first large-scale integration of public schools in the South. Nixon sought a middle way between the segregationist Wallace and liberal Democrats whose support of integration was alienating some Southern whites. By September 1970, less than ten percent of black children were attending segregated schools. By 1971, however, tensions over desegregation surfaced with protests over the busing of children to schools outside their neighborhood to achieve racial balance. Nixon opposed busing personally but enforced court orders requiring its use.
In addition to desegregating public schools, Nixon implemented the Philadelphia Plan in 1970 — the first significant federal affirmative action program. He also endorsed the Equal Rights Amendment after it passed both houses of Congress in 1972 and went to the states for ratification. Nixon also appointed more women to administration positions than Lyndon Johnson had.
What you accuse Nixon and, by mere association, all Republicans of doing in the South doesn't add up.

... and they think that if they ignore the fact that all those southern "conservatives" are why those states are red now that none of us will notice.

These are very simple questions, and do not require a complex answer. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer these questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Simple questions. Simple answers. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
Got an answer for us, dupe?

12 Ways Obama Smacked Down the Tea Party and the Right in Inauguration Speech
Reclaiming the language of patriotism, Obama then threw it back in the faces of right-wing Republicans to advance a liberal agenda.
1. Reminding the nation who won the Civil War.
2. Reminding the nation of the history of the civil rights movement.
3. Reclaiming the founding documents for liberalism.
4. Throwing right-wing rhetoric right back at them.
The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.
And Ayn Rand wept.

they'd vote Republican if Democrats were the conservatives.
