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

Despite that delusional liar DB's statement Democrats don't want Anthony Wiener anywhere near Gracie Mansion. Maybe if you got your information from somewhere else besides Fox and the various right wing whack jobs on this thread you'd know this.

Are you saying that Dr. Martin Luther's Kings niece , Dr. Alveda C. King, is a racist? or an uncle Tom? It appears that you are confused, so say she...Little known by many today is the fact that it was Republican Senator
Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Democrat President Lyndon Johnson,
who pushed through the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In fact, Dirksen was
instrumental to the passage of civil rights legislation in 1957, 1960, 1964,
1965 and 1968. Dirksen wrote the language for the 1965 Voting Rights
Act. Dirksen also crafted the language for the Civil Rights Act of 1968
which prohibited discrimination in housing.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. hailed Senator Dirksen’s “able and courageous
leadership” and "The Chicago Defender," the largest black-owned daily at that
time, praised Senator Dirksen “for the grand manner of his generalship behind the
passage of the best civil rights measures that have ever been enacted into law since
Reconstruction.”
Democrats today ignore the pivotal role played by Senator Dirksen in obtaining
passage of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act, while heralding President Johnson
as a civil rights advocate for signing the bill. The chief opponents of the 1964 Civil
Rights Act were Democrat Senators Sam Ervin, Albert Gore, Sr. and Robert Byrd
who filibustered against the bill for 14 straight hours before the final vote.
President Lyndon Johnson could not have achieved passage of the civil rights
legislation without the support of Republicans.

“All I needed to do was mention the key words ‘Will you help Obama’ and people sign just about anything,” Dice noted."
I saw the video, and some were the age to be put under. Who is this stupid-sorry..please excuse... I forgot, they are stupid O'bama voters.

I know it's just a movie, but it brings her character to life. Then again, she could have been suffering from postpartum depression after having a baby at 44 or over 40 at any rate. I've heard so many different things about the Palin family. Not sure what is true or not true.
Of course they liked her more. She was "homey". Kellie Pickler is well liked too but she didn't know that France and Hungary are countries. She and Palin are cut from the same mold.

blacks can't buy... but if MLK Jr., registered to vote it would have been as a Republican in Alabama simply because the Democrats would not allow black voters. We know his father was a Republican for sure. Seems strange that no one can find if MLK Jr. was registered one way or another, don't you find that odd?

My husband was-- as in 'was' a plumber and his father owned his own plumbing company. They are the ones responsible for laying the deep tunnels in Chicago for the people to get running water. Yep even the Sout side. Most of the time they had to have guns in order to keep the Negroes from stealing and from getting shot. They paid off the democrat politicians to clear the sites. They paid off the democrats to allow Negroes under affirmative action to stand and watch, and then paid for their drunk black asses. They paid off the democrat politicians to approve the job. They paid off the democrat politicians to work. That is what is called the Chicago way. My father-in-law retired at 58, his son, my husband now owns a business with his Russian partner-who came to this country in the late 80's with 20 dollars in his pocket, but some how unlike the blacks made his way-for 13 years now they have had a successful business, it has nothing to do with unions or plumbing. I am a recruiter for Retail businesses. And you are an old femi-nazi, ready for the grave. Did you see your fellow Nazis in California, they are ready to euthanize you.

You're going to try that fable again you goddamn liar? Criminal charges were dropped against the Black Panthers before Obama was inaugurated and before Holder was even confirmed. Why? Because there was no voter intimidation. Why was there no voter intimidation? Probably because these guys were standing there and giving any right wingers who would have harassed voters pause.

And one more thing, old government worker-it appears that you are the heart of soul of the liberal party--YOU HATE PEOPLE THAT WORK--the Democrat Motto. Shame on you. I don't care if I am washing toilets, it is a job. Shame on you. You bring shame to normal people who want to work. Again shame on you. I can't say it enough. You are a poor excuse of a person, and as we all know you suck the government teet and Debil.

Houston group says Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican

....we sought historical expertise, including by asking Thomas Jackson, a history professor at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and author of From Civil Rights to Human Rights: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Struggle for Economic Justice, for his take on the video.

He told us that Alveda King's description of the Republican Party's history was on the mark. "The Party of (Abraham) Lincoln defended black rights most vocally in the 1860s and 1870s, then abandoned the cause when the Democrats and the (Ku Klux) Klan defeated Republican state governments in the South. Blacks started their historic switch to the Democrats during the New Deal," which were economic programs implemented in the 1930s under President Franklin Roosevelt in response to the Great Depression.

But Jackson said that he would not consider King a Republican, calling him instead a " 'tax and spend' democratic socialist."

"He wanted the nation to spend billions of dollars directly to employ the unemployed when the private sector failed, and a vigorous mixture of affirmative action and anti-poverty programs championed by the liberal-left, and targeted federal spending in impoverished areas, especially the nation's slums," Jackson said.

David Garrow — author of Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for biography — advised against assigning King to either party. "It's simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican," Garrow told us.

However, he said he wouldn't call King a Democrat, either, because he had "very positive feelings" about Republican Richard Nixon in the late 1950s and "extremely positive feelings" about Republican Nelson Rockefeller, the New York governor who later served as vice president. Also, Garrow said, King became "a very harsh critic" of Democratic President Lyndon Johnson over his escalation of the Vietnam War and "wouldn't necessarily have backed (Democratic presidential nominee) Hubert Humphrey in '68 had he (King) lived."

We asked Garrow about the 2006 Post article's statements that King had voted for Democratic presidential candidates John F. Kennedy in 1960 and Lyndon Johnson in 1964. He said there is little doubt that King did so.
