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

You claimed it was his best guess. Your not doing him any favors by speaking.

<quoted text> Would that be like you hijacking Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society /Civil Rights legacy for republicans and Everett Dirksen? He was from Illinois just like Barack Obama.
Because I back up what I post, here's the proof of my previous post.

"The gallery was packed on June 10, 1964, as all one hundred senators were present for the climactic moment of the longest filibuster in Senate history. Late in the morning Everett Dirksen rose from his seat to address the Senate. In poor health, drained from working fourteen-, fifteen-, and sixteen-hour days, his words came quietly. "There are many reasons why cloture should be invoked and a good civil rights measure enacted. It is said that on the night he died, Victor Hugo wrote in his diary substantially this sentiment,'Stronger than all the armies is an idea whose time has come.' The time has come for equality of opportunity in sharing of government, in education, and in employment. It must not be stayed or denied." After Dirksen spoke for fifteen minutes the motion for a roll call vote for cloture was heard. As each name was read, members of the press and spectators in the gallery kept tally. At 11:15 a.m., Senator John Williams of Delaware replied "aye" to the question. It was the sixty-seventh vote; cloture had passed, opening the way for the Civil Rights bill to be passed. After successfully defeating the eighty-three-day filibuster, Dirksen, when asked how he had become a crusader in this cause, replied, "I am involved in mankind, and whatever the skin, we are all included in mankind." Somewhat anticlimactically, the bill was signed into law by President Johnson on July 2, 1964."

Didn't even look at a Fox source. The mere fact that only one liberal website posted this "satire" and another liberal website repeated it word for word with no other websites to be found to validate such an outrageous claim was proof enough.

However, it was, in fact, another liberal leaning website who reported the actual statement by Hannity and the actual content when it became absolutely clear the poster perpetrated the gross distortion version or, in Lily's words, "satire".

Just have to post this again because it made a judge-it mad.

See? She never said from her "front porch". She said there as a location in Alaska where one could see the border of Russia.

It's another lie and distortion you are much too eager to believe again.

Hillary was smart enough not to parrot the party line on the talk shows, so Obama marched out the White House maid, Susan Rice.

Too bad Rice isn't Secretary of State, to make a bigger target.

Really on top of breaking news.
No wonder the mainstream media has lost all credibility.
Why not interview Susan Rice again and swallow all her lies, like Monica on her knees for Bill?
Did you see the interview with John McCain? That's more than relevant. "The Benghazi issue was reignited last week after House Republicans held a hearing on the attacks and ABC News published a story showing that administration talking points offered immediately after the attacks went through several rounds of editing by officials, including in the State Department.

While many Republicans have charged political interference, others -- including longtime State Department reporter Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post -- have noted that it seems more like a case of bureaucratic in-fighting. " So, Obama's edited-out talking points were not a 'scandal', but a bureaucratic in-fighting snafu. It wasn't catastrophe, just a very , small mess.

What's scary is Fox reporting a suspected coverup just based on the facts that were known for months which John Galt correctly said, "didn't pass the smell test" and only now, eight months later, are the liberal press starting to wake up from their Obama-induced semi-coma.

Then again, this isn't the first time Fox has broken a major news story and the liberal media has to run to catch up months later.

Too bad that you did not hear the Robert Gates interview. President George W Bush's Secretary of State would be calling your criticisms of Obama, Clinton ,and Rice as 'cartoonish' as Darrell Issa and Jim Inhofe's .

The few hundred times would be more accurate and you were corrected by many including right wing stooges such as Galt.

During one of your more memorable math errors you mistakenly cited a California withholding tax increase and then defended your error for days while being laughed at by one and all.

Just face it gal, you're a stooge and one with a chip on her shoulder.

Everett Dirksen played a much bigger role than Lyndon Johnson in getting the CRA of 1964 passed in Congress behind the scenes. All Johnson had to do was sign it and take all the credit for it. Seems to be a pattern among democrats.

After Dirksen's tireless efforts, "somewhat anticlimactically, the bill was signed into law by President Johnson on July 2, 1964." And then he took all the credit.

Indeed.

After U.S. Special Forces' tireless efforts in hunting bin Laden for five long years, somewhat anticlimatically, Obama announced bin Laden was dead. And then took all the credit.

Like I said, it's a pattern.
