Barack Obama, our next President

Conservative Media Watchdog Questions Whether African-American Host Is Dark Enough

Tim Graham, director of media analysis at the conservative Media Research Center, questioned MSNBC's description of newly announced weekend host Karen Finney as African-American because of her skin color on Tuesday.

Finney, a former Democratic operative, has written in detail about her family background: she is the descendant of slaves on her father's side and the great, great, great, great niece of Confederate general Robert E. Lee on her mother's.

Graham has raised some odd complaints about how the media handles race in the past. As Media Matters noted, he once suggested the press was deliberately covering up President Obama's dating history to keep people from learning he had previously gone out with white women.

Historian Robert Caro: Today's Conservative Media "Quite Horrible" And Venomous

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Robert Caro criticized conservative media coverage of President Obama during an appearance in New York City, describing it as "something quite horrible" and venomous.

Caro, known for his biographies of President Lyndon Johnson, spoke during a March 29 interview at Strand Books in Manhattan conducted by New York magazine writer Frank Rich as part of promotion for the paperback version of his fourth Johnson book, The Passage of Power.

Caro, who won Pulitzer Prizes for his third Johnson book, Master of the Senate, and his 1975 book about Robert Moses, has long used newspaper and media coverage in his research about U.S. political history.

Asked by Media Matters what he thought of today's conservative media coverage given his experience with historic news accounts, Caro said there had been strong conservative news coverage of past political figures, but stressed today's approach is worse.

"I think today is something [different], the venom, the absolute venom, whatever we think is really underneath it all, it is something quite horrible," he said, later adding, "Here in New York you live in a different world. I was just giving some lectures and you know when you get out in the rest of the country you realize the depth of the anti-Obama feeling."

Caro's comments follow years of conservative media figures smearing President Obama and his family with outlandish conspiracies, regular falsehoods, trumped-up pseudoscandals, and outright attacks.

You sound more like a traitor than a patriot. You preach nonsense.

Spiritual Warfare
Statesmen, Politicians, and Cowards
"For we wrestle against not flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." ~ Ephesians 6:12 KJV
A story of our day.
They love their paycheck more than their solemn duty to uphold either their State’s or the United States Constitution. They covet playing with the ‘big boys and girls’…a position in the false federal government god, full-time employment, political appointments with no accountability. They crave power over.
These are the 99% of the men and women who occupy the majority of our local, regional, state, and federal governments and all political parties…calling themselves ‘leaders’ and ‘lawmakers’ when they are neither. Having no convictions, they have no courage. It is the ultimate of cowardice to choose themselves and political party over those they are supposed to represent.
They are the tares that grow with the wheat, and they are sewn into the field by the enemy. When the time comes, they will be harvested and bundled, and thrown into the lake of fire. By their own actions, and through our discernment, these politicians and cowards continue to be exposed http://bible.cc/ephesians/5-11.htm , so that none will be left standing or go untarnished in their day.
Woe to them that believe they have fooled the masses! Every statement, back door deal, public comment, and public meeting now completely exposes their fig leafs; they are not man or woman enough to stand for the Truth. They are the fools.
It is easy now to separate the wheat from the tares:
1. A Statesman loves Our Constitution.
2. A Statesman enforces Our Constitution.
3. A Statesman uses Truth to keep power in the hands of The People to whom it truly belongs.
4. A Statesman‘s primary concern is to secure Freedom for Our future generations.
5. A Statesman will not play politics with The People’s money.
6. A Statesman knows The People MUST control government.
7. A Statesman knows The People MUST limit government’s power to tax.
8. A Statesman gives his allegiance to The People and Nation.
9. A Statesman will DEMAND a balanced budget.
10. A Statesman will cause Peace.
The politicians and cowards believe and act in the opposite manner than statesmen.
Promises are nothing; action says all.

Sure proof of the failure of the country’s education system is the fact that Americans, the casualties of that system, could listen to President Obama’s remarks on education in his 2013 State of the Union speech and not laugh him out of America

Lets point to president nobama's accomplishments;
- Successful book writer describing his homosexual acts and drug use
- Huge deficits, biggest ever
- Millions more on food stamps under his administration
- Millions more not paying Federal Income tax
- Grade AAAA flip flopper, re gay marriage
- Champeen hider, all college records, birth certificate, source of funds to attend college
- The planner down to the smallest detail in the killing of bin Laden
- One who dodged military service, it was below his status
- One who ordered the bombing of Libyan women and children when Libya had done nothing against the US
- One who has increased the debt more than any other president
- One who throws a baseball and dribbles a basketball like ??????
- The one who kept kids from visiting the White House
President nobama has 3+ years left, hopefully he will do something, anything of value?
Peace

The Second Amendment has turned America into a lawless mess.

No matter how we feel about guns. I own them. But I know they're the reason so many die from guns.

To face the option that our schools must become armed camps to protect our children sends a horrible message to our children. Schools should be a place of learning, fun, socialization. What does it tell them when armed guards are patrolling the building?? Esp. in grades K-4. It tells them that they are not safe from gun violence - anywhere. Think it's gonna stay with them, as the 'duck 'n cover' nuclear drills stayed with the 1950's kids forever??

I fear what the next generation will be like after facing Stalag 17 conditions in order to get an education.

Anyone who says guns are not the reason for gun violence is denying the obvious. It's like saying drowning isn't caused by water.

Adam Lanza, armed with his Samuri Swords, never would have entered the building, much less killed anyone. His mother nurtured the perfect monster, but guns were what set the monster apart.

You just prove my point. Gay are looking for the government to take from others and give to them. They want the government to be their weapon to force other to pay for something they do not deserve.
No.

We want to avoid paying thousands of dollars to attorneys trying to construct what marriage inherently provides, only to find our wills contested after we die and family members we don't even like stealing from our spouses.

We want the same basic respect (from the law, not from people) when it comes to making our own family arrangements: wills, hospital decisions, health insurance decisions, etc.

We want our freedom of religion. We were married by a Reverend who regularly married heterosexual couples, and those couples are recognized under the law. The government doesn't get to tell our Reverend who can be married.

We want to stop having to explain to people what we are, where we had it done, if it's legal and on what levels and in what states. We're married. It's very simple.

And whether you like it or not, it WILL be addressed under the law - soon.

In 1989 the budget for the federal Department of Education was $22.8 billion. By 2008 it was $68.6 billion. Even adjusting for inflation, federal education spending almost doubled. So more federal money was flowing from Washington into education; much more, of course, was spent by local governments, the traditional funders of schools. If the money had been used well, we might have expected federal spending to actually go down. Public schools need to go. They are a waste of tax money. Let the privet school do what they do best.

Why is the Federal government involved in marriage in the first place. Why not let the folks decide? If a state votes to permit gay marriage, that's the way it is. If a state votes not to permit gay marriage, that's the way it is. That does not work for wingnuts like you, you want good ole uncle to make all your decisions for you but only if they coincide with your views. You need a benevolent government to look out for you because you are a simple troll without a thought of your own.

No, just like that didn't work for interracial marriage, it doesn't work for gay marriage.

Do you not realize you live in America?

Do you not realize gay people have the same God-given rights as everyone else?

Why should they be subjected to the whims of other people?

Ever hear of the tyranny of the majority stuff? Yeah, that's bad.

Nobody gets to take my rights away because I happen to be gay. Nobody should be voting on my rights - even in the states where we have won recently. Which of your rights are you willing to put up for a public vote?

Some of you don't even understand the great country in which we live and want to turn it into your personal likes and dislikes or your churches. That's not even smart, because it can be just as easily turned around on you.

Use your head. And think like a real American.
