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

Nothing but anti-abortion economic leftwingers.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking a stand on something as important as protecting human life especially when it's the most vulnerable who have no voice.

It's only because liberals drag up the issue of abortion every election cycle as a tool to get votes from women who think killing the life they created is their right.

It's also a liberal tactic every election year to put conservatives in the position of having to defend taking a stand on protecting life. They even turned it into some stupid idiotic war against women.

All Republicans need to say is "I'm pro-life" and leave it at that. Enough said.

The Senate on Thursday voted to repeal a sales tax on medical devices that is part of President Obama’s health-care law, a rare bipartisan attempt to strip away a section of the controversial reforms.

Sens. Orrin Hatch, Utah Republican, and Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, led the amendment, which passed on a 79-20 vote during debate over the chamber’s budget plan for the coming fiscal year.

As part of debate over the spending blueprint, the vote does not have the force of law. However, it showed that economic forces in Democrats’ home states hold enough sway for senators to turn against specific provisions within the Affordable Care Act.

“Today’s bipartisan vote to repeal the medical device tax is an important step in the right direction,” said Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican.“Unfortunately, Obamacare remains a job-killer that grows the government and slows the economy, which is why it’s important to repeal the whole thing.”

Ms. Klobuchar said Minnesota contains 400 medical device companies that employ 35,000 people, amounting to “one of the bright spots in America’s economy.” She said the 2.3 percent tax stifles innovation and threatens America’s position as the top exporter of medical devices.

“While I’m proud to be a champion of [the health care law], I believe that the medical device tax is just not the way to pay for it,” said Sen. Al Franken, Minnesota Democrat, during floor debate.

Ms. Klobuchar and Mr. Franken have joined Sens. Bob Casey Jr., Pennsylvania Democrat, and Joe Donnelly, Indiana Democrat, in sponsoring Mr. Hatch’s bill.

Republican amendments to the Senate's budget proposal would require President Obama and Vice President Biden to get their medical care through the new exchanges created by Obama's signature healthcare law.

Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) both offered amendments to move the president and vice president into the healthcare law's exchanges.

After the Affordable Care Act passed, the White House said Obama would enroll in an exchange once the time came in 2014. Collins and Ayotte's amendments would require the president, the vice president and the Cabinet to put their premiums where their politics are.

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.

Cain was a promoter, not really possessing great business or management skills. A very shallow candidate.
He wouldn't have won the ticket, no doubt. But Lily made the comment that Republicans would never vote for a black or a woman.

Which was a ridiculous thing to say in itself.

So I just pointed out the traction Cain was getting among Republicans.

Dr. Condoleeza Rice would be a formidable candidate if she were to ever run. She's covers being black and being a woman.

Which would be the sweetest poetic justice of all.

I don't think Lily and a lot of other liberals even realize how many black Republicans are out there and how many more are going to begin speaking out. An unprecedented 30 black Republicans ran for office in 2010. Pretty sure that number is going to keep growing.

Wrong.

It is destructive to chase away voters over a meaningless platform that is completely in the hands of the courts and cannot be affected at the legislative or executive levels.

Saying that one is "pro-life" is taking an extreme position that guarantees a loss.

Can't you get it through your head that people do not like to be told what to do with their own lives, even if they are morally opposed to abortion? That includes lots of Republican women who do not share your extreme religious views.

Just say nothing.

Horsecrap
The percentages of those on welfare by race as of 2011 are listed below in descending order by percentage.
Black-39.8%
White-38.8%
Hispanic-15.7%
Other-3.3%
Asian-2.4%
For real Wiki, that's your source? Breakdown those living below the poverty line then factor in those percentages. While 24.7% of blacks live below the poverty line only 8.6% of whites do, so now who's scamming the system? Then factor in those on TANF(temporary assistance for needy families) & the percentage of whites blossom to 70%. Mind you TANF is the most used form of welfare. We're not talking about public assistance ($140 month,$200 foodstamps month, & clinic health insurance). Most people on public assistance is on it only for insurance, & by law they have to take the money & foodstamps. Even when you factor in public assistance the results are staggering! How can a group of 8.6% account for nearly 39% of welfare (70% of real welfare)?

Oh, you mean the four years your side has spent demagoguing
Obama??

Clinton won re-election in the middle of the Ken Starr investigation. Remember??

Your side tried to pin sex scandals on Clinton during the election of 1996.

But Americans rejected you and Dole.

So much for 'democrats don't have sex scandals'.

You're really stupid to have brought up that line of reasoning, considering what lengths your party went to to destroy both Clinton and Obama.

You didn't answer my question. How come liberal candidates never seem to have any skeletons in their closet around election time?
Did you know Obama won the Senate in Illinois twice because of alleged sex scandals surrounding both of his opponents?
You don't find that a little bit odd?
Sex scandals are a sure fire way to discredit anyone - whether the allegations are true or not.
You underestimate the propagandists if you don't think they would stoop to any level to discredit their favored candidate opponents.

You are incorrect. In the State of Washington it is against the law to be in a bar/lounge without an ID card which indicates age. I have been asked for ID and I can only wish there was a question as to my age.
Recently I was in a bar and a young man came in and ordered a beer. He was asked for ID, said he was out training for Bloomsday, he was in sweats, no pockets. He had no ID and was not served.

You are an unregistered 'guest' on Topix.

Your name cannot be stolen, because you have no real Tolpix name. You're merely a visitor.

There are millions of Carol's in America.

You dumb enough to think you're the 'real Carol'??

You're a real idiot!!

Register yourself and you'll eliminate the need for your constant whining about someone 'stealing' a name you don't own!!

You are still too retarded to figure out how to register??

You prefer to be a troll??

Women who think it's their right? As a woman you sound stupid! If a woman doesn't have the right, who does? My honest opinion, this shouldn't even be a topic, but every election year some republican shows the control they want over women in general. Either that or what God you should worship. & I'm not for abortion at all, but it's none of my business unless I'm the father. Then I should have as much rights as the mother!
