Barack Obama, our next President

here's some honesty...
Are Republicans the New Democrats?
Who would have guessed last year that the GOP would be endorsing a litany of previously unthinkable positions? Elections have consequences, and this time, an identity crisis seems to be one of them.

seeing as how you're the poster child for identity crisis.
There won't BE a Republican party in the future. Why would anybody bother with campaigning or voting Republican when they know that the Democrats will always be the majority voters? Thanks for the immigration "reform", Mr. Obamanation.

Speaking of votes and a congressional election next year, Bill Clinton is now asking the Supreme Court to overturn DOMA, Defense of Marriage Act, that he signed.

Since liberals never take a stand or stick by any set of principles, ole' Clinton has apparently "evolved" like Obama just in time to get more gay votes for the democrats in 2014.

If dogs could vote, they'd bark and promise them free steak bones.

He never assumed he was. It was a liberal newspaper who made the comment Rand was like watching Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

That was actually a compliment.

I read the linked article.
Fonda was totally right.
The Wingnuts hate her because she challenged their legitimacy. A false legitimacy which was finally laid to rest by "The Pentagon Papers".
Anyone who thinks U.S. involvement in Indochina was anything close to honorable doesn't know the facts.
It was a CIA set-up and 58,000 young men paid the price.
You increasingly sound like Dennis Rodman speaking about his friends in North Korea.

Just caught a clip of a black rapper on TMZ saying that he's got no problem playing in North Korea.

Dennis, is this you?

No, dikweed. You're the idiot.
The Gulf of Tonkin was set up by the CIA.
This is proven by Fletcher Prouty's book, "The Secret Team" and "The Pentagon Papers".
The CIA consists of ultra-right wingers. So in the final analysis, the right started the Vietnam War.
What are you, stupid? When I mention "The Secret Team" and "The Pentagon Papers", these are UMIMPEACHABLE SOURCES.
In fact, the CIA tried to keep "The Secret Team" from ever being published. Nixon had his attorney general file an injunction against the NY Times to quash further disssemination, and the case went all they way to the Supreme Court.
In both instances, the rightwing screamed that national security was at stake. We now know the only thing at stake was concealment of their guilt.
So...JFK and LBJ had nothing to do with it, eh? It was all CIA Republicans? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHA

And the Bay of Pigs invasion wasn't JFK, either, but those damned Republican CIA Operatives!

And, of course, it wasn't SEAL 6 Republicans who got Osama but the Boy Messiah wearing his Superman Leotards and Tummy-Tuck Girdle.

Charles Krauthammer once again makes sense. Reminding us the Democrats haven't proposed a budget since the iPad (notwithstanding Obama's two proposals which were summarily rejected by all Democrats in the Senate) and saying it would be nice if the Senate would come up with one just as Ryan and the Republicans have done so they can share some of the scrutiny which they are happy to let the Republicans take while they do absolutely nothing.
That is precisely why Senate Democrats won't come up with a budget. It might come under scrutiny and it's better to do nothing and blame republicans who are trying to do something than risk losing votes.
In other words, they are cowards.

Obamacare got passed by a sweet deal with Pharma lobbyists, a very large pharmaceutical company,

Top corporate donors to Obama's campaign in 2008:
Goldman Sachs -$1,013,091
Microsoft Corp -$852,167
Google Inc -$814,540
JPMorgan Chase & Co -$808,799
Citigroup Inc -$736,771

20 lobbyists were working in the Obama administration in 2010.

The Democratic Governors Association vacuumed up $11.6 million in contributions -- mostly from corporations and unions -- during the second half of 2009. For the year, DGA raised $23.1 million, a record.

The contributors included hefty checks from nearly every top lobbying firm in Washington and from such multi-national giants as Exxon Mobil which pitched in $50,000.

...Democrats catering to corporations "to some extent" is an understatement.

As far as the vote to ban gay marriage in California:

ABC News - "Whites voted very narrowly against the ban, 51-49 percent. Asian-Americans voted the same. Hispanics voted for it by 53-47 percent. Blacks voted for it, overwhelmingly, 70-30. Blacks can be said to have put it over the top. Hypothetically, had no blacks voted, we compute a vote of 50-50," according to an analysis by ABC News Polling Director.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/11/...

This is the irony on the part of Democrats. They continually blame Republicans for not supporting gay marriage when it's mostly blacks and Hispanics - who are mostly Democrats.

Well ...

Appears Attorney General Eric Holder was TKO'D by Senator
"Rand Paul" .. The White House conceded and answered his question.

So, I'd say he's more like The Slugger, George Foreman.
Paul just kept on Slugging Away to obtain that TKO Victory!

“Mr. President,” the petition begins.”We the people request that you respond to Senator Rand Paul and the citizens of America on the issue of drone strikes on US soil with the potential to kill US citizens without a trial.… We request that you respect our freedoms and our rights as US citizens.”

“Mr. President, as our elected leader, you are accountable to the people and so we ask that you address this important issue”, it adds, signing off ”respectfully” under the name “A Citizen of the United States of America.”

http://dailycaller.com/2013/03/07/dramatic-ra...

Now, We The People need to sign and submit a petition to get an answer, The Truth, about the Benghazi debacle! Stop The LIES!

Liberals came up with the similarity. Almost admired him for it.

ABC News - "Mr. Smith would be proud. That’s how most Americans probably view a filibuster: Jimmy Stewart as Mr. Smith reading aloud for hours and hours in pursuit of righting some wrong."
