Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

With no explanation those numbers could mean anything__are 39.8% of blacks on welfare? Do blacks consume 39.8% of all welfare?
Were is welfare defined.
Sounds like WND to me.

Some Hispanics identify themselves as white.

Too bad you're just a Rmoney voter, still unable to accept the fact that you voted for a reject, the true Anti-Christ Mormon.

Gotta love the stupidity of the right. It guarantees all future Presidents will be Democrats!!

<quoted text>72% of the population is white so you refuted none of her argument with your percentages.
Actually, yes.

Blacks are on welfare at about three times their percentage in society, while whites are on welfare at 50% of their percentage in society.

What's hard to figure is how he found a bullet that's a bargain at .75 a round for... um.. 3.5 cents a round? Does he get a senior citizen discount? Guy must be REALLY old?

From what I hear they don't have the Feds printing out fake money and devaluing their currency just to keep their economy afloat.

Galt is having second thoughts.

Galt has been convinced for a while that Nucularshit was a sockpuppet for Demos/Tenzing, kind of Mr. Hyde to Dr. Jekyll.

Galt has become convinced that Demos/Tenzing could not possibly be that stupid if he tried.

Galt apologizes to Demos/Tenzing.

I will need to re-evaluate whether I want to be on a site that allows the clowns and the harassment of people but won't allow honest debate. If I want juvenile behavior I can go to a bar near any college compass around here.

Well, to be axiomatic, America's plan to disarm President Obama probably won't work either. Especially if they're going to buy 3.5 cent a round ammunition. I'm thinking they should fire off a few rounds to make sure the papier mache' doesn't clog the barrel?

Why does a Democrat need an AR-15? Joe Biden told you only need to take a shotgun outside at fire a couple rounds off towards the sky!

Also - the very lowest you will find .223 rounds is at 40 cents and you just saud "hubby" found them at $19.00 for 500 rounds. That would be .036 cents a round.

You could actually get good ones at .026 a round before you libtards started ranting for gun control.

Get your math straight, libtard.

Like I said, it would have only passed by 7 votes in the House had all Democrats voted nay.
It wouldn't have passed in the Senate.
It doesn't matter.

Your crude attempts to shift the blame away from Bush just don't carry water.

----------

""However, when words are used in ways that manipulate public fear, facts and rationality are beside the point. The aim of the corruption of language -- whether conscious or unconscious -- is to confuse rather than clarify, and to cause the listener to believe an illusion rather than the truth.

In his article, "Fallacies and War," Dave Koehler points out misleading public arguments the administration uses to justify war. For example, the Bush team often presents the false dilemma -- claiming there are only two possible options when, in fact, more choices are available.

Kohler refers to the statement Bush issued right after 9/11: "You're either with us or with the terrorists." As Kohler says "Countries can be both against terrorism and not an ally of the U.S ... Many countries are showing they are both against a preemptive war and against the current Iraqi regime." Bush said the U.N. must vote for war or face irrelevance. As Kohler points out, the U.N. can simultaneously survive and disagree with Bush.

The Bush team also repeatedly uses the fallacy of exclusion, meaning they leave out important aspects of any given argument. For example, Colin Powell and George Bush spoke about aluminum tubes being used for uranium enrichment for nuclear weapons use. Kohler notes they failed to take into account the essential fact that U.N. inspectors said the tubes were conventional rocket artillery casings.

Kohler points to another fallacy, argument from ignorance -- the claim that what hasn't been disproved must be true. The Bush administration implies Iraq must have weapons of mass destruction because of Iraq's failure to prove it doesn't. As Kohler says, the burden of proof is on the party making the claim, therefore the U.S. "must prove that Iraq has WMD. It is impossible for Iraq to prove they don't."

In his article, "An Orwellian Pitch," John R. McArthur, publisher of Harper's Magazine, writes about the Bush team's manipulation of public opinion. He says, "Effective propaganda relies on half-truths and the conflation of disparate 'facts'(like Saddam's genuine human rights violations)." McArthur says the Bush team has managed to get away with this deceptive fact twisting because they use a tactic George Orwell described as "slovenliness" in the language.

Congressman Henry Waxman said the Bush administration likely hoodwinked members of Congress. According to a March 25 Mother Jones article, Waxman said he voted to give Bush authority to invade Iraq in large part because he believed the administration's claims about Iraq's effort to purchase nuclear weapons.""

----------

It will go down in history as Bush's Debacle.

You think he didn't get invited to any Republican Conventions for nothing??vThe Repugnant Party has abandoned GW Bush.

Even most Repugnants hate Bush.

You're one of the few that is dumb enough to continue your idiotic support of him.

but that whole 'I don't want to say if I voted for Clinton' thing will be the thing that the FOXbot faction won't be able to get around. you have yet to comment on it, so.....there ya go.
Romney pretty much paid his dues having been vetted for the second time which gave him an advantage. Unfortunately, his Mormonism was a significant obstacle, and he simply didn't have the much needed urgency in his message. He also let several golden opportunites pass by which could have sealed the deal in playing it too safe. Then, of course, there was the hurricane days before the election when he simply disappeared and Obama got the spotlight.

Unfortunately.
