You agreed with Dave when he stated that it was illegal to kill delivered babies. Partial Birth Abortions is something different.
Obama did not vote for or against it. This claim does nothing to support Obama. If it was horrible, why not a vote against?
Since Carol introduced the topic I know the law she's referring to, not sure you're talking about the same thing.

So you have nothing to offer in the way of Obama's past leadership accomplishments except upsetting Americans while he's learning on the job?
What are you saying exactly LNC?
Surely, you wouldn't have voted for someone without any past accomplishments in a leadership capacity.
So instead of constantly reminding me libraries have books, why don't you tell me why you voted for Obama based on his past leadership accomplishments?
I promise to be openminded.
Sure this comes from someone who supported Mitt Romney who did such a bang up job as Massachusetts chief executive that he left office with a 37% approval rating. A guy who made his fortune by wrecking companies like Dade International and destroying the lives of their employees.
I voted for Obama because his policies are designed to help the middle class and stimulate jobs rather than the GOP whose aim was to further enrich the already wealthy on the backs of the poor and middle class.

The 2001 and 2002 measures included a controversial line that proved to be a sticking point. It said,“A live child born as a result of an abortion shall be fully recognized as a human person and accorded immediate protection under the law.”
Obama took issue with that part of the bill saying it could interfere with a woman’s right to an abortion as established through the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Here is an excerpt of his remarks from the 2001 floor debate:
“Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a nine-month-old child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.”
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-chec...
...Heaven forbid we think of a previable fetus as a person or women to start thinking they're aborting a child because it "would be an antiabortion issue to kill a baby".
You should read the entire article. Obama actually misrepresented everything he once said during the 2008 campaign.
Its an insult to my intelligence that you insist on revisiting causes you've already lost.

ok, which one of you FOXbots was pushing this earlier....

Fox News And Donald Trump Use Snowden Story To Revive Birther Claims

No one is surprised anymore when Fox News brazenly brandishes their rightist leanings or promotes Republican candidates and causes. Anyone who is paying attention recognizes that Fox is the PR arm of the GOP. But having established that fact, Fox is now swinging for the fences and attempting to take the mantle of fringe fictionalists from the likes of Glenn Beck and Alex Jones.

The media is clearly obsessed with this new melodrama revolving around Edward Snowden and the international chase scene that has reporters racking up frequent flier miles and dreams of sky-high ratings. They would like nothing better than a helicopter hovering over a white Bronco as it tracks Snowden to some exotic tropical sanctuary. Every media whore in the business is weighing in.

So it goes without saying that this morning on Fox & Friends, the kiddies on the curvy couch hosted national joke and Hair Club for Dicks spokesman, Donald Trump, to discuss the Snowden affair. Trump wasted no time in sensationalizing the matter with his typically shallow analysis by calling for Snowden (who has been convicted of nothing) to be executed and blaming Obama for everything. But Trump’s outraged is not reserved for Snowden alone. When he was asked what he thought about the newspapers that published Snowden’s documents, Trump said that it was “disgraceful.” So he is not only opposed to whistleblowers, he also opposes journalists. He even managed to inject a swipe at Climate Change when he mentioned some nonsense about magazine covers in the 1920&#8242;s reporting global cooling.

However, the focus was squarely on Snowden as Trump implied that America is weak and in danger of imminent extinction. Although, in the minds of these extremist right-wingers, America is always mortally threatened by whatever their issue du jour might be, whether it’s health care, immigration, or totalitarian bicycles (seriously). But the wheels really came off the interview when Trump segued from Snowden’s flight to his favorite subject, the President’s birth certificate.

Trump: You know the only thing we don’t seem to get are the records from the President. Isn’t that interesting?
Brian Kilmeade: Yeah, no one leaks that.
Steve Doocy: Yeah, where are those?

Yeah! How come that Kenyan socialist Muslim doesn’t release his records – again? Why is continuing to deceive the American people about his foreign nativity and his phony academic resume? And when will he come clean about his real father being former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers? And what his Marxist upbringing, his gay husband, and his alien reptilian body that lies beneath that human costume he wears?

America wants to know. And thank God for Fox News – the only media outlet courageous enough to ask these questions. As for Snowden, if he really wants to gain some credibility with the Free Speech crowd, he should show up in Red Square wearing a Free Pussy Riot t-shirt while he’s in Russia.

Prove it is wrong.
The Bush tax cuts cost us trillions in revenue and led to the worst downturn since the Depression. Only an idiot would deny those FACTS. Failure defines the Bush administration.

"The failure of Republicans to deliver on their promise that tax cuts would be mostly self-financing is a large factor in the deterioration in our long-run fiscal outlook, and it is putting considerable pressure on programs such as Social Security. In fact, the Bush tax cuts can be thought of as a loan from the Social Security Trust Fund that was supposed to be paid back with the revenues from higher economic growth, a loan that is presently in default."

"The payoffs from tax cuts that were promised during the Bush years have not been realized, and the failed promises about growth and revenue have damaged the health, education, and retirement programs the working class depends upon in our increasingly globalized economy."

His statement was that "Bush got the economy up and running again".

That's what you have to prove right to refute his argument.

Who are you kidding? Yourself. You voted for Obama because you are an ignorant, greedy, needy person and you thought Obama would line your pockets more than the other guy.

If you don't think the Democrats "enrich the already wealthy on the backs of the poor and middle class" you have a large hole in your head.

Nah, the equities markets already had their correction last week. Today was just panic over China. DJIA's only down 54 points right now and headed up because today provided a buying opportunity for those who got out in anticipation of the correction.

In addition to being "real dumb" you are real dense. If you check and were honest you would have noted I never used the word arab(s). You deny war between the various muslim sects has not been going on for 100's of years? You deny these terrorists murder and maim their own including women and children?

These morons like being lied to by Democrats. They actually believe them.

I remember when Democrats said the Republicans wanted to cut Social Security. The "truth" was the Republicans wanted a smaller "increase".

Liberal morons are just, well, morons.
