Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text> No, President Andrew Johnson drew the ire of radical republicans for his more moderate , non-interventionist local, state-centric approach to Reconstruction --"Americans had long been suspicious of the federal government playing too large a role in the affairs of state. But the Radicals felt that extraordinary times called for direct intervention in state affairs and laws designed to protect the emancipated blacks. At the heart of their beliefs was the notion that blacks must be given a chance to compete in a free-labor economy...."
"President Johnson stood in opposition. He vetoed the Freedmen's Bureau Bill, claiming that it would bloat the size of government."
http://www.ushistory.org/us/35b.asp
President Andrew Johnson's decentralized approach to implementing Reconstruction was very close and similar to the modern-day republicans like Nixon , Reagan, Paul Ryan and libertarians like Ron Paul's states rights argument.
First paragraph of your article

"The Radical Republicans believed blacks were entitled to the same political rights and opportunities as whites. They also believed that the Confederate leaders should be punished for their roles in the Civil War."

Wow, that is radical. Who wrote this article?

"President Johnson stood in opposition. He ...vetoed the Civil Rights Bill rejecting that blacks have the "same rights of property and person" as whites. Moderate Republicans were appalled at Johnson's racism. They joined with the Radicals to overturn Johnson's Civil Rights Act veto. "

No matter if the article calls them Radical the bottom line is the bill they supported is what is accepted law .

No matter how you spin it, Johnson was a racist as stated by the article.

Johnson was impeached for failure to enact laws Congress passed

Today’s GOP vs. Tomorrow’s GOP on Immigration

We are about to watch something unfold that is really fascinating and very rare in American politics. One of our two major parties—I’ll let you guess which one!—is on the cusp of having to weigh what is good for its congressional wing in the short term versus what is good for its aspirations to reclaim the presidency over the long term. I’m not sure this has any precedent, at least in the modern history of the republic: a party that, electorally, demographically, and culturally, has so insulated and isolated itself from the rest of the nation that what’s good for its legislators is bad for the party’s future—not to mention the rest of the country.

Yes, I do recall that...quite vividly.

I also recall a black republican being beat up by four liberal men for selling patriotic material at one of those peaceful rallies.

The media doesn't like reporting those kinds of things though - might disturb the herd mentality to think objectively.

Planned Parenthood continues to practice eugenics today.
You really need to go back to school and get an education.

Eugenics according to the American Sociological Review: "A social philosophy advocating the improvement of human hereditary traits through the promotion of higher reproduction of more desired people and traits, and reduced reproduction of less desired people and traits."

Israel has embraced eugenics not Planned Parenthood.

The Weathermen were a loose knit group with many factions & many group leaders.
So who is the dumbf*ck now. It is you because buildings are not people.

I provided a link to the KKK platform that conflicted with your platform -

You still remain a liar as many of the things contained even in this document is not in the Tea Party platform.

The GOP's clueless caucus

They’ve waxed philosophic about “legitimate rape,” reflected on the economic role of “wetbacks” and denounced the actions of “brazen, self-described illegal aliens.” They’ve lamented that “mom got in the workplace” and called out the United States attorney general for casting “aspersions on my asparagus.”

Call them the clueless caucus of the Republican Party.

As much of the GOP strains to implement a post-2012 course correction, the party has found itself stymied over and over by what leaders describe as a tiny rump of ham-fisted pols with a knack for stumbling onto cable news. No matter what the party leadership is up to in a given month, there’s almost invariably a back-bencher in the House of Representatives or a C-list player out in the states who’s only too eager to take the wind out of a conservative comeback with some incendiary comment that seizes national attention.

Because I know I'm not. So why would Obama say that is "typical" white behavior?

Perhaps he was thinking of typical white Democrats in the deep south...but racism on that scale no longer exists.

Could it be Obama's words explain who he really is and how he thinks? And why Michelle was never proud of her country? Have us "typical white people" always been the problem? Obama's "spiritual mentor" seemed to think so anyway.

I could really use some words of wisdom to help me understand what Obama might have meant by that rather offensive assumption about all of us "typical white people".

Assuming, of course, you're a "typical white person" yourself.

<quoted text>Free thinking people such as Obama, myself, other non-rightwingers, are not as easily influenced as people like you. So when you hear others speak you don't just take it up as your own. So if you listened to a preacher or spoke with Socialist it doesn't define someone and does not mean you have taken up their cause or even agree with them or in a preacher's case everything they say.
I recognize Fox News viewers are the antithesis of this.
Have they posted videos of all the sermons from the 20 years or are they just cherry-picking?
Free thinking people aren't constantly bitching about fox news. Only the liberal herd continue to beat that horse.

Yes, they are.

There are Left groups that oppose NAFTA for example.

It makes an interesting contrast to read the radical KKK platform that I linked to; compared to the less radical wording of today.

So when the Wall Street Journal - not a conservative-leaning news source - publishes an article saying President Obama spent months in 2010 warning Americans about the 'threat' to democracy posed by conservative groups right at the time the IRS began targeting these groups - is something you yawn at?

Look! Squirrel!
