Barack Obama, our next President

If you can't get anything done, try and change the measure of success:
House Speaker John Boehner says Congress "ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal."
The Ohio Republican makes the comments on an interview aired Sunday on CBS "Face the Nation." He was responding to a question about how little Congress is doing these days.
Boehner says Congress "should not be judged by how many new laws we create."
After 39 failed attempts (!) to repeal Obamacare, it looks like Boehner sucks at repealing laws too.
Maybe his metric for success should be "most unpopular Congress ever," because if that's the measure, he'd be an unqualified success.
Boehner may be replaced by the Teabaggers?

You and leosnana act like a few republicans invented pelvic exams.

If you've ever had a Pap smear or have ever been pregnant, you know your private parts are no longer private.

If you want to choose to abort a baby that's growing inside you and even if a transvaginal ultrasound was used to help the woman make an informed decision, what's the big damn deal?

What's wrong with you two? There wasn't any mention of this kind of procedure in the Wisconsin bill anyway - much less that it would be forced on anyone.

Really. What's wrong with you two?

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough fired back Monday at FOX News' Sean Hannity's remark last week in which he asked whether President Barack Obama and Trayvon Martin are similar because they both "smoked pot, did a little blow."

"It seems we keep hearing that Trayvon had it coming because he had pot in his system," Scarborough said on his show,'Morning Joe.' "I keep hearing this from people like Sean Hannity and others on the right. Really? Is that the new standard? Would we like to go across college campuses in America and tell all white boys that if they have marijuana in their system then they are fair game?"

You'd have to provide proof he said such a thing. Because I and the jury and everyone who even tried to follow this trial never heard it. Not once.
Only liberals ignored the trial and the evidence and got their daily talking points from moveon.org and dailykos.com .
Perhaps the screaming stopped once a shot was heard because the victim on the ground was no longer being beaten.
How easily manipulated are you liberals anyway?
You're not just a liar, Batty, you're a stupid liar. "When lead detective for the Sanford, Fla. police department Chris Serino played the recording for Zimmerman during questioning, Zimmerman said, "That doesn't even sound like me," Serino told jurors Monday.

Mark O'Mara, lead attorney for the defense then asked Serino if he thought Zimmerman was in denial.

The numbers tell the story of a criminal justice system blighted by racial disparities in drug law enforcement: African-Americans make up around 12 percent of the U.S. population, account for 33.6 percent of drug arrests and 37 percent of state prison inmates serving time for drug offenses.

The figures come from Human Rights Watch, a New York-based watchdog which complains in its 2011 report about “overwhelming racial disparities” in drug incarcerations despite the fact that blacks and whites engage in drug offenses at equivalent rates. The Sentencing Project, an advocacy group which has tracked disparities in the criminal justice system for the past 25 years, says the black-white gap cannot be explained by disproportionate criminal behavior.

So who do you know who had a "vaginal probe" to determine if they were pregnant in all your years being a woman? Because I've never ever heard of such a thing - ever.
Transvaginal ultrasounds - which you liberals interpret as "vaginal probes" - are used primarily to detect fibroids and female reproductive problems.
The Wisconsin Senate bill stated:“An ultrasound on the pregnant woman using whichever transducer ; provide a simultaneous oral explanation during the ultrasound including the number of unborn children and presence and location of the unborn child; display the ultrasound images so that the pregnant woman may view them; provide a medical description of the ultrasound images including the dimensions of the unborn child and a description of any viewable external features and internal organs of the unborn child; and provide a means for the pregnant woman to visualize any fetal heartbeat, in a quality consistent with current medical practice, and a simultaneous oral explanation of the visual display of the heartbeat in a manner understandable to a layperson (ultrasound requirements).”
So where did you liberal loons read anything about a "vaginal probe" in that description?
You people worry the hell out of me.
There's is definitely something wrong with you.

Forced ultrasound bills mandate a medically unnecessary procedure that would otherwise be left up to the discretion of a woman and her doctor. Medical experts, including the largest national group representing thousands of OB-GYNs across the country, are opposed to this type of legislation because they say it interferes with their work and compromises their relationships with patients.“All of a sudden, the Senate is full of doctors,” Wisconsin Sen. Tim Cullen (D) said in reference to SB 206&#8242;s advancement.

And, even though the lawmakers who push for mandatory ultrasound measures sometimes deny it, these laws also require many women to undergo an invasive transvaginal probe. Before 12 weeks of pregnancy, a transvaginal ultrasound is the only way to detect a clear image — and, since the vast majority of women in the United States seek abortion services in their first trimester, those women must submit to an invasive probe in order to comply with these burdensome laws. Over the past year, reproductive rights advocates have repeatedly decried transvaginal ultrasound laws as “state sponsored rape.”

Go get a tape recorder and scream for help like you're being murdered into the microphone.

Most people don't think their regular voices sound like them even on a telephone message.

You'd probably be surprised it was you screaming bloody murder too.

Tea Party forever !

Mourdock was asked during the final minutes of a debate Tuesday night whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.

"I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen," Mourdock said.

Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin said in August that women's bodies have ways of preventing pregnancy in cases of what he called "legitimate rape."

It was not immediately clear what effect Mourdock's comments might have during the final two weeks in the increasingly tight race against Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly.

The idea that you're not going to have race enter into this has got to be the single most naive thing I have heard about this case, because, number one, race determines everything in the criminal justice system. There isn't any case that goes through the criminal justice system that's not determined by race.-Mark Geragos

One criminal defense attorney who defended the Trayvon Martin verdict was pretty good about acknowledging the role of race in the Trayvon Martin case—Mark Geragos:


Did the George Zimmerman trial involve racist attitudes? Of course it did. Did the predominantly white jury reach the right verdict? Of course it did. Is the criminal justice system a racist institution? Of course it is. Do young black males disproportionately suffer the brunt of this criminal justice system? Of course they do. Did the media and politicians inflame the situation for their own purposes? Of course they did. Is this a conundrum easily resolved or reconciled? Of course it’s not.
