Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Other sources such as Bloomberg reported the same thing.
By the way, releasing two years of returns is more than what the law requires and the standard Senator Kerry adhered to as the Democratic nominee in the 2004 election.
But we didn't hear enough whining about Romney producing only two years of his tax returns by the left. Not a word was said about Kerry's wife's fortune that he married into withholding her tax returns.
We seem to be making up for it now, however.

<quoted text>you were right about Ann Arbor Michigan why it is the way it is and is where Bill Ayers got Radicalized in the New Left and where he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group and became involved in the New Left with the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) where he rose to national prominence as an SDS leader in 1968 and 1969. As head of an SDS regional group, the "Jesse James Gang," Ayers made decisive contributions to the Weatherman orientation toward militancy.
The group Ayers headed in Detroit, Michigan became one of the earliest gatherings of what became the Weatherman. Before the June 1969 SDS convention, Ayers became a prominent leader of the group, which arose as a result of a schism in SDS.

Dixiecrats Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. and many more, remained Democrats till their dying day you idiot.
Democrats created the Dixiecrats, when the civil rights movement succeeded by the Republicans, Dixiecrats returned to their racist Democratic fold. It was not till much later, with a new, younger breed of Southerner and the thousands of Northerners moving into the South, that Republicans made gains in the south.
In the age of information...Your ignorance and running on dumbass is still cway's best choice.
Learn to read, Dweeb.

I stated the change did not occur overnight.

But it did happen eventually. The shift was noticeable on election night, 1964, following Barry Goldwater's speech against Civil Rights. Five Southern states bolted for the GOP camp.

New breed of Southerner? No such animal.

Then why did Holder defend Obama having the authority at his own discretion to use drones in this country against "suspected terrorists"?
It confirms many people's concerns that this president says one thing and does another. If he insists on trying all terrorists in American courts, why would he want autonomous authority to use drones on American soil against "suspected" terrorists?
When it comes to life and death, he simply can't be trusted. Not this president who detests any and all opposition to his personal ideology and personal vision for this country.
You can see why having sole authority to use drones against "suspected enemies" would make a few people a little nervous.
I am still waiting for the Jerk-In-Chief to close down Arlington and the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier for lack of maintenance funding and blame it on the Republicans.

The fundamental problem with market capitalism is that it reduces human suffering - not to mention animal suffering - to a matter of dollars and scents. it wouldn't be a problem were it not for the fact that in order for a few Bozos to play capitalist everyone else is forced to play along too. Simple answer though, kill the capitalists.

Your revisionist history is a joke.
All that legislation was crafted during the Kennedy years.

All Johnson did was sign his name to it.

You'll have to explain to me why J. Edgar Hoover and oil tycoon, Clint Murchison would be friends with a liberal politician. That dog don't hunt.

The main point of my post, which you miss in the most embarrassing manner, was that the CIA was the prime mover in causing the war with North Vietnam.

Are you suggesting that public officials like Holder can ignore Congressional hearings by refusing to respond?

Actually they can, by asserting their Fifth Amendment rights.

Enemies, a GOP love story
by digby
Being fairly sure that the new found love for civil liberties among Republicans seeking the presidency is a tad opportunistic, I highlighted some delicious examples of GOP hypocrisy on presidential wartime powers during the Kosovo campaign. Now Perlstein takes them through the Wayback machine and it's a wild trip. He starts off by recounting this week's events and then asking:
Does all this mean the ancient (and even, sometimes, honorable) tradition of Republican "isolationism" (the word being more than a little bit of an epithet, its advocates prefer "non-interventionism”) is making a comeback? Or, alternately, did it never really go away at the conservative grassroots, save for those distracting moments when the Commander in Chief is a conservative Republican hero like in those heady first few years of W's Iraq War? Or is all this just another opportunity for Obama-bashing, and as such a perfect exemplar of the intellectual contentlessness and bottomless cynicism of that favorite Republican activity?(As I put it in the piece on the convention, "What they really love—shown by the way McCain and Condi were able to win back their audience by taking cheap shots at Obama—are enemies. And within their authoritarian mind-set [as George Orwell taught us with his talk about Eurasia, Eastasia and Oceania], enemies are fungible."
Do read on. It's quite a lesson in partisan opportunism.
This is why I don't truck too much in the hypocrisy argument on either side. Both parties are guilty of it, particularly in national security and foreign policy, which is interesting since the nation has been run on a bipartisan consensus on this pretty much for half a century. You see this playing out on both sides right now in which a few Democrats are tepidly speaking out against tactics in the covert war against terrorism, while some of the GOP's more aggressive, ambitious types are taking up the mantle of the ACLU. Meanwhile, John McCain (as he did during the Kosovo campaign) holds down the pro-military end on the right while the Democratic president and his allies in congress holds it down on the left. You'll see the same dynamic when a Republican is in the White House.
Perlstein's observation is more interesting: with the right, it's about the enemies and enemies are fungible. That's really the best way to understand them, I think.

Galt was tempted to comment on this gem, but fell asleep in the middle of the second sentence.

But we are always interested in what "Pearlstine' thinks.

You were just misunderstood. What you were saying is that modern Detroit is a ghost town, inhabited primarily by rabbits.
