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 ... Read more

The problem with your comparison is Reagan was a two-term successful governor of one of the largest states in the union after he left the acting profession.
Obama was a community organizer who dreamed of becoming a celebrity president.
See the difference there?
Reagan was a B actor in Hollywood, a failed governor of California, and it took him 12 years in the political wilderness of republican campaign politics to finally ring from Trent Lott endorsement to be the 1980 GOP Presidential nominee in exchange for Reagan support for states rights efforts in the Deep South to overturn the Civil Rights , Voting and Open Housing Rights of the Kennedy-Johnson Administrations.

So, a southerner, A Navy Seal, and a pig are walkin' along a dirt road in Mississippi. The Navy Seal says, "Man, I'ym hun-gry. Iff'n I was back home I'd have my mama fix me some mashed taters, collard greens and hog jowls." The pig says, "Man if I was back home I'd ask farmer Bob to fill me up a big ol' bucket of slops an' stick my face down in there until the whole trough was empty. The southerner just stared blankly ahead and said nuthin'. They're not too smart ya know.

Odd. Let me guess... you're lonely and overweight? Anyone who spends this much time sitting on their ass must have a rather large one. Do you do this grandiose delusional pontification routine everyday?

<quoted text>The key commander in Benghazi? ROFLMMFAO
There was a Benghazi "mission" which was supposedly staffed by state department employees, six or perhaps seven on the evening of the attack. There was also a nearby CIA compound which was said to house +/- two dozen CIA agents-operatives-contractors take your pick.
So you're saying that this mystery commander who's been abroad and could not be reached via cell phone or subpoena has finally decided to drop in on a congressional hearing.
You've lost you mind lady___give it a rest! You've become a bigger embarrassment to this thread than the codpiece from Sring TX.
Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command leadership.

But I'll cede your point and call him a "key player" or "key witness" in testifying to what actually happened.

The Pentagon told CBS News on July 5 that Bristol, the commander of the Joint Special Forces Task Force-Trans Sahara, could not testify because he was retired.

But the Marine Corps Times first reported two weeks ago that Bristol had not yet retired and was actually on active duty, preparing for retirement through the end of the month.

So hope that clears up any confusion on your part.

Society dictates its moral standards. The abolitionists brought attention to slavery and ending it. The majority joined the cause for civil rights because it was the right thing to do.
But who looks out for the rights of human beings who are unborn?
And why must society redefine something as timeless and enduring as marriage to keep those who are having temper tantrums to get their way happy?
The government should respect the will of the people. The people know what's best for the people.
If anyone tried to dictate the will of the people, it was southern democrats who tried to dictate racism. Not the other way around.

I'm an actor too, kinda, sorta. And I get so upset when those nasty rightwingers say Reagan brought prosperity and pride to America while Obama is known as the food stamp president who blames and vacations while more Americans slip into poverty.

Its all true, but I don't like when they say it and thank God the media doesn't report it.

Here's another thought: After the Romans beat the livin' shit outta Jesus, then forced marched him up the street while the locals threw shit all over him, then nailed him up on a scaffold and made him drink vinegar, maybe broke his legs, etc., why, after all that, did they give him a nice clean white loincloth to wear like in all the pictures? I'll bet you that that l'il Jewish fella hung up there with his dick hangin' out - Jewish guys bein' what they are it probably wasn't THAT embarassing - with shit runnin' down his legs like he was visitin' Hershey Pennsylvania on the express bus. Whaddya think? One thing's for sure, if there was a loincloth, nobody saved it afterwards.

"Once again, the majority of blacks and Hispanics are anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage."

And yet they still vote for Democrats over Republicans by sizable margins.

Wow.

What does that say about the Republican Party??

And Carol, you have been told a gazillion times that racism in the South was done by Whites, not just Democrats. When will you idiots ever get that. Nearly all in Congress from the South voted against the Civil Rights Act & Nearly all from outside the South voted for it. When you try to paste racism to just Democrats, you are either a liar or dumber than sh*t.

Like I told him, do some reading on liberating Europe and rebuilding Japan and Germany. And providing help to those in need around the world.
And then contrast that to books about Lenin and Mao.

The problem, of course, is the UK and other countries in Europe are beginning to realize Muslims are becoming more dominant by remaining separate from the mainstream while growing in numbers and demanding Sharia Law be implemented into their own governments' laws.
It's just going to be a little harder to do that here. But we probably shouldn't think it can never happen.
At least one city in this country has already granted Muslims the right to say their prayers over loudspeakers.
We should all be keeping an eye on Europe and if this problem is contained there or continues to grow.
Many of us kept an eye on Europe by taking European history at university.
