Republicans want to change the rules just because there is a Democratic president. Why is "porkulus" spending okay when a Republican is in office? When Republicans win another election, that will be their opportunity to do something about "porkulus" spending. They need to stop with "Do as we say, not as we do" mentality.
Democrats are the one always wanting to change the rules, buddy.

You can trust me!

The 100+ meetings I had with the IRS Commissioner were not to target my political opponents.

We had 100+ Easter Egg hunts & a Beer Summit!

I am not a crook!

Lily, please read this.
Zimmerman did not chase down Martin just to find him and shoot him. That would have been murder. Why was Martin's decision to instigate an attack overlooked in your reaction? Doesn't he share any culpability in having made that decision?
Zimmerman said when he was trying to shimmy his body over to the grass to protect it, Martin saw the gun and started to go for it.
So what if that really happened? Can you say with absolute certainty it didn't? And if it did, Trayvon had the advantage and could have easily gotten the gun away from Zimmerman.
Zimmerman getting out of his car may have been a mistake, but it was not a crime. There was no intent on his part to shoot Martin that night. He could not have known Martin was still in the area when he got out of his car to wait for the police.
So why WAS Martin still in the area? And why would Martin scream for help if his only intent was to commit murder?
If someone had come to his rescue, Martin would have been on trial for assault and battery. Would anyone have cared who Martin was then? The fact is no one would have even known his name.
Just FYI...more people are killed with fists than with rifles.
God, but you're Breitbart stupid, DOW...the stat was for more killed by hammers, clubs, fists, feet than by RIFLES...was Georgie Pudgy carrying a rifle down the back of his pants when he stalked a racially profiled teenager? I thought not, but you never know what you demented old folks in Florida Faux section of shady opines will be saying next.

Where the hell do you get your information from? If you listened to one of the jurors, the entire jury was convinced Zimmerman had every reason to be, and was, in fear for his life.
But, keep watching those propaganda shows. It's sometimes fun to point out the obvious, that you are an ignorant, indoctrinated dupe.
Some people may call that an idiot.

It's laughable! How can a group of old white menseriously claim racial tensions between 2 minority groups, in which they individually only lay eyes on these 2 groups passing by in a car? Talk about exploitation of a tragedy! Meanwhile, on the real side of things in America, this melting pot with potential of true greatness, we need to figure how to keep the 2nd amendment but, limit the exposure of guns in society. The fact that Zimmerman had 2 felonies taken off his record ( which would've prevented him from owning a gun) because, his daddy is a Jew ex-judge is ridiculous! It's crazy that in this country, folks care more about gun possession than, the future of our youth. Trayvonm Martin serves as a sacrificial lamb for the argument that our gun laws conflicted. The person with no criminal record was profiled as a gangsta, grown enough to go to prison for the rest of his life but, not old enough to have a gun license but, the guy whom should've never been able tohave a gun can legally own a gun, shoot & kill an unnamed teen & get away with it, it's ridiculous. Laws need to be changed or, don't cry & complain when there's uprising & anarchy!

Just as Eisenhower, the 34th president, pulled troops out of Korea and avoided other military adventures, Mr. Obama has pulled out of Iraq, is leaving Afghanistan, has limited intervention in Libya largely to airstrikes and has resisted being drawn directly into the civil war in Syria.

Mr. Obama’s inner circle includes some Eisenhower admirers. Mr. Hagel bought 30 copies of a recent book on the former president’s handling of the 1956 Suez crisis to distribute to fellow administration officials. Denis R. McDonough, the White House chief of staff, cites Eisenhower’s emphasis on planning.
Eisenhower kept his hand hidden while still speaking regularly with reporters. He held news conferences an average of every two weeks. Mr. Obama, by contrast, gives interviews to select organizations, but has far fewer day-in, day-out interactions with journalists than his recent predecessors, and therefore avoids being asked about many issues of the moment.

The Jurors come from a Congressional District where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 3-1, idiot.

I see you Democrats are still practicing racism against Hispanics. At least you are finally showing your true colors.
