Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Is it racial violence? Or, is it cultural? What do you think will happen when a culture that has no respect for another person's rights, property and life comes into contact with a culture that places the highest regard on individual rights, private property and a person's life?
The problem is, when you define the different cultures, it coincidentally approximates a racial difference.
What do you think of Elbert L. Guillory?
I think like any other person, he has the right to be what he wants to be. I think he is a well spoken, articulate, well educated blackman. I also think he crossed party lines for political gain. What person, after being something for 30yrs has an epiphany &, decides he's been wrong all along? You mean to tell me, it took 30yrs to see you were on the wrong path. That's not a person who can be trusted to run a state, let alone a country. You only make reference of the situation because, he changed from democrat to republican. Had it been the other way around, you would be seeing it my way, reality. At least Herman Cain had the dignity to hold form to his beliefs, however screwed up they were!

LMAO. Seems you are the "Dumbass". As usual, your talking heads got it WRONG. It isn't the "Obama phone". You would be far more correct to refer to those cell phones as the "Bush phone".
The Telecommunications Act of 2005 (Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act of 2005) expanded the SafeLink program to include free cell phones. Got that???? Remember who was president in 2005???
Here is who voted for it:
5/18/2006 - Passed in the Senate by unanimous consent which means no Republicans opposed the bill.
6/7/2006 – Passed in the House 379-35
6/15/2006 – Signed into law by President Bush
Besides, the SafeLink program is funded by contributions from telecommunications companies through the Universal Service Administrative Company, NOT tax dollars.
An August 2008 press release announced the start of the SafeLink Wireless program in the state of Tennessee:
"Today, TracFone Wireless, Inc., America's leading prepaid cell phone provider announced its launch of SafeLink Wireless(R) in Tennessee. SafeLink Wireless will serve as the company's distribution of Lifeline - a U.S. government supported program for income eligible households that ensures telephone service is available and affordable for eligible low income households.
The SafeLink Wireless service will provide eligible low-income households a free cell phone…
A recent study ("Cell Phones Provide Significant Economic Gains for Low-Income American Households," April 2008) analyzed the impact of mobile phones on low-income households. "In this day and age, the cell phone should be deemed an imperative necessity for the millions of low-income families who are far less likely to own them," said Nicholas P. Sullivan, the study's author and visiting scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Our study showed cell phones can significantly boost the earning potential of these communities, and this connectivity vastly encourages their opportunities and remains central to their everyday survival," Sullivan stressed.
The study also revealed the cell phone is a critical component for personal safety, access to emergency services, and can potentially increase a low-income family's economic productivity and earning power."

The Obama Phone?

Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?

A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.

I love it when you change the subject when you can't come up with a response Carol but I'll answer you.
1. No. We've tried that before. It was called the Articles of Confederation which proved totally unworkable. During the Civil War the Confederacy tried it again and once again it failed.
2. No. We already have that. It's called elections. If my Congressman and Senators are doing a good job then why would I want to replace them? The Republicans always put term limits in their platforms but once in office forget all about them.
3. While I'd love to see Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia be put out to pasture, again no. That would require amending the Constitution which is time consuming and expensive. It would likely fail and be a total waste of tax dollars.
Anything else Carol?
So, in other words, you're okay with the status quo of career politicians, politically motivated Supreme Court judges and the dissolution of Social Security and Medicaid in a few more decades.

You're basically against any reforms that would limit the size and scope of the federal government and reform programs that are leading us into certain bankruptcy.

You're perfectly happy with a powerful central government who regulates and dictates and takes the power from the people.

Do I have that right?

Barack Obama:
~Makes empty threats with invisible red lines.
~Makes empty promises with no intention to keep.
~Desires a welfare state and a powerful central government.
~Desires a one-party system.
~Perpetually leads from behind.
~Creates a part-time employment epidemic to promote his vision of single-payer.
~Surrounds himself with corrupt Chicago advisors.
~Intentionally creates divisiveness among the people.
~Favors the enemies of Israel over Israel.
~Allows abuses of power by powerful agencies by holding no one accountable.
~Stonewalls investigations to cover up incompetency and abuses of power.
~Declares unresolved and disturbing controversies as phony.

This is not the right man to lead our country.

Not one liberal could defend the above truthfully.

GOP Candidate Sentenced for Felony Fraud After Changing Party Affiliation of 300 Democratic Voters, Casting Absentee Ballots in Their Name

With these 300 fraudulent votes created by one Republican candidate alone, that's 300 more fraudulent votes than have ever been created by ACORN or anybody who has ever worked for them.

But, of course, you're unlikely to hear that, or even this story itself, from the tenacious Fox "News" "voter fraud special investigative unit" or the GOP clowns who help them disinform American voters.

List of Your Opinions ;-)

Amusing and partisan.

You seem to dislike President Obama for a person pretending to lead Black Americans "to a home in the Republican Party"?
