Barack Obama, our next President

ok, i'll give you that one.

that's the excuse i've seen.
Yeah, but you know what they say about "excuses"...

The whole MLK march was a dud anyway. Anyone that HAD integrity with regards to that movement is either long gone, or fallen by the wayside of the exploitation highway. MLK is probably turning in his grave, seeing that freakshow yesterday....

Voting rights are restored in some states, but in those same states one can not ever pay their debt to society. Their record follows them for the rest of their lives. So IMO no one ever pays their debt to society, that is a fallacy.
Andrew Breitbart taught me you can always find common ground.:)
So you think it is alright for 16 year old children to beat an 88 year old to death? No one currently in prison should be able to vote.

We enjoyed your birther posts and the aliens building the New York subway based on grafitti .
LOL
Repetition is necessary for those with thick skulls.

The majority of Americans did not want Obamacare from the beginning and still don't.

Democrats who wrote the darn thing are backtracking.

And there's bee yet another delay because they don't even know how to get the darn thing off the ground.

But you go ahead and wave your little sign.

So tell me, if your hero is setting bait what is he trying to catch?
Obama may be conducting a false flag operation to drag the US into Syria on the side of Al Qaeda.

That march was clearly a political event. Why would 4 or 5 Republicans - especially Boehner, McCain and Jeb Bush representing his brother who is recovering from a recent surgery - set themselves up for ridicule so Obama can rub it in their faces since he has continually and mercilessly demonized them even before taking office?
Obama has gone out of his way to make sure America sees both House Republicans and their constituents as the enemy.
He had no interest in their attending or speaking at that rally other than, perhaps, his liberal audience being reminded they were, in fact, the enemy while sharing the stage with a smug black radically liberal president.
Where were all the successful black republicans? Where was Alveda King, MLK's niece?
Inviting 4 or 5 white republicans was intentional knowing they would decline.
More lies, slander, opinion, and innuendo. Please go bother someone else with your claptrap.

so the Republican solution is no solution?
and you keep acting like someone other than the republicans won't come to the table. re: see above. oh but unless the Heritage plan that Mitt embraced is back on the table. no wait...it already is the law of land. never mind.
They had plenty of solutions that were both cost free and practical but none of them gave Obama his big government with more control over us and didn't give the Democrats their strictly partisan vote to pave the way for a single-payer system.

They still have the same solutions. The Democrats didn't want any part of them then and don't want to hear them now.

Unfortunately for them, they own Obamacare now.

The poster never suggested it was alright, nor did they say anyone currently in prison should be allowed to vote, they said their voting rights should be restored AFTER they paid their debt to society. Go back and reread their post.

Well that's not really surprising Carol considering that she's vehemently anti gay rights. Tim Scott wasn't invited either because of his anti labor stands.

plus 20 lashes with a wet noodle....the judge obviously considered the charges to be a joke...
The charges weren't a joke her lies were recorded on law enforcement audio equipment and heard on national television hook ups all while George sat there like a potted plant. She not only lied but bowed up when pushed about the rental home situation. She did the right thing by negotiating the plea agreement.

Incidentally during the course of the legal mumbo jumbo leading to George's trial her mother got a major league DUI that made it into the national news. Georges stupidity created grief for dozens of his friends and neighbors along with his family.

You'd think with the power behind the Department of Justice and Eric Holder's fired up determination to make this a racial crime and his mission to file a civil suit against Zimmerman, Zimmerman would already be back in the news - and in court.

Holder's use of the FBI [at the taxpayers' expense] couldn't find one shred of evidence this was true.

So give it up, Homer. Eric Holder did.

Lois still playing with the judge. LOL Your comment is False. Here is one example of how intelligence is seeping into the republicans ranks in spite of the kooks ideologies.
Obama’s empathy for our nation has been demonstrated numerous times. That’s why republicans have labeled him as Obamacare. Now he is going to gather up the Tea and cast it out unto the waters of oblivion with the traditionalist republicans help.
Fortunately there is hope and it is being demonstrated, more and more every day, with the moderate republicans and the intellectuals of the party that are distancing themselves from the dysfunctional “Ideologues” of their party. Obama has aided them with his brilliance. A Tea bulwark has fallen.
Obamacare drives a wedge, fracturing republican party. Phoenix Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer pulled off a major coup by distancing herself, along with a few staunch republican state senators, from their extremist elements within their party. Rallying the support by emphasizing “Moral and Monetarily Correct”. Stating “It’s pro-life, it’s saving lives, it is creating jobs, it is saving hospitals,” and “I don’t know how you can get any more conservative than that,”
Typical of the intoxicated Tea Party’s strategy. Derogatory remarks are let loose with no substance to any issue for debate. Going so far as to invoke some religious sniping by A.J LaFaro chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, comparing Jan Brewer to Judas! Libertarian blog post by Tyler S. Boyer on the “Freedom Works” site, refers to Jan as “An unfortunate display of ineptitude.” Derogatory continues to surface from the right wing extremist. Reagan once said” Republicans should not speak ill of one another” Something the extremist have ignored, as they have demonstrated on various issues, ignoring supporting their constituents for some personal ego political ploy. Ignoring the facts that voters agreed, in 1996 and in 2000, to extend Medicaid coverage to childless adults, one of the main beneficiaries of the Medicaid expansion.
Mr. Coughlin states “Ideologues have their agendas” Mr. Coughlin goes on to say “and the part of the party that’s taking issue with the governor right now is all made up of ideologues”!
Moderate republicans will be required to expand their platforms to educate their constituents of the fallacies of the zealot extremist policies. Focusing on the more intelligent groups within their spheres such as women and independents.
Bruce Merrill, political behaviorist senior research at Morrison Institute for Public Policy of the Arizona University states “how truly fractured the Republican Party in Arizona is.” expressly due to Obamacare.
“The real brilliance of Barack Obama when he made Medicaid an all-or-nothing proposition,” giving states no option but to cover individuals with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line if they were to qualify for federal reimbursement,“was that he pitted fiscally conservative Republicans against one another,” he said.
Governor Jan Brewer views it as merely bruised egos that will heal with time.“Nobody likes to lose, and that’s what happened”. AND this is but one example of many.
Tea will not be served…. Out of service…

Are you sure you're not confusing gay "rights" with gay "marriage" as you liberals so often do?
