If getting treatment for an existing condition isn't "health care", what is it? Do you know how many people come to the emergency room for routine and preventative medicine?

Well then, if you want a candidate who never so much as utters they are pro-life even without elaborating, you're going to alienate a significant number of conservative voters.
Because that question is going to come up in the debates every single election cycle.
Even black voters are switching parties in part because of this issue.
However, I agree with you that conservative candidates who are pro-life (and remember Giuliani was pro-choice) should be very cautious as to how much emphasis they allow the opposition to push this issue just to entrap them. But it's always going to be an issue. They just have to learn how to outsmart them without losing the higher ground.
But to label "fundamentalist Christians" as "anti-abortion radicals" is rather naïve on your part. No offense, but it's more of a moral issue and many oppose it on both sides...fundamentalist Christians or not.
Bingo! So, what you are saying is that anti abortion is your most compelling issue in voting.

Poor Ed, still the same old deranged lying f*ck.
I call people racist only when they continue to use racial slurs or say something racist.
I can't help it if you dumbassses can't post about Obama without a racial slur. Its not my fault your racism is so deeply imbedded in your brain that you can't help yourself.
Funny how I have made a gazillion posts not agreeing with the stuff Bush did & NEVER EVER mentioned his race once.
Funny huh, racist f*ck Eed.
Then you should be calling yourself a racist.

What a shytty position to be in. Maybe Scott Brown will run for President. At least he's got the good looks!

But let me say this about the Tea Party to avoid any potential confusion as far as I'm concerned.

The Tea Party was a movement. It demanded government accountability after the bottom fell out.

When Republicans were elected to the House in 2010 by the people belonging to this movement, the left quickly labeled them the "Tea Party" in Congress.

Those elected officials were elected by the people in that movement and should have distanced themselves from that label once they got to Capital Hill.

There is no third party called the "Tea Party". These elected officials merely represent those who have had enough.

It's about time all Americans start saying they've had enough.

Last year was a record low point. So this year is not a record low does not men everything is back to normal.
Sea ice extent for August 2013 averaged 6.09 million square kilometers (2.35 million square miles). This was 1.13 million square kilometers (398,000 square miles) below the 1981 to 2010 average for August, but well above the level recorded last year, which was the lowest September extent in the satellite record. Ice extent this August was similar to the years 2008 to 2010. These contrasts in ice extent from one year to the next highlight the year-to-year variability attending the overall, long-term decline in sea ice extent"

Want health care? Do these things:
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study something useful to the economy while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job, and show up for work every day on time.
5) Do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
In what the United States used to be, doing the above would allow you to afford very good health care. My parents were semi-literate, and they afforded good enough health care for 5 kids by doing that.
Why isn't that true today?
Because they are just poor, helpless victims of society and they deserve everything for free. Oh wait, I forgot, many of them are ILLEGAL as well.

I didn't get a reaction from this statement:
The Washington Navy Yard shooter had a security clearance that very obviously should not have been given to him.
He was allowed to have a security clearance because he was black. Had he been white, there is no way in hell anyone with a background like that would have been given a clearance.
Why are the standards different for black people than for white people?
There are very many black people working in the Navy Yard. He didn't shoot any black people. He only shot defenseless white people.
I suppose this could be Obama's son, too.
Perhaps, but he couldn't be a racist, only whites can be racist.

Now all he has to do is perform a miracle in India and China.
You probably think the global warming issue being put to rest once and for all is another of his miracles.
Go ahead and just admit it.
Carol, you do realize that Global warming causes the sea levels to rise so reducing the greenhouse emissions to reduce the effects of global warming would lessen that sea level increase.

India & China are smart enough to know that Global Warming needs to be addresses. Too bad you are not.

Aaron Alexis was a practicing Buddhist who spoke Thai and hoped to one day move to Thailand.

His circle of friends was small, he perceived slights where there weren't any__he was basically nuts.

Not all the victims were white as one lying topix mofo offered earlier today__at least one was black and another was a Hindu Indian American. Not all the dead have been ID'd yet. None of the dead were active duty military most were older, one 73 yoa.

Let's see now...

Could it be this administration is stonewalling the investigations?

CNN (August 1, 2013)- After ignoring requests for months, the State Department has left no alternative but to issue subpoenas for documents relevant to our investigation,” Issa said in a statement.“State Department tactics to delay and impede accountability have exhausted the Committee’s patience. Further subpoenas may also be necessary if the Department is not forthcoming on other requests.

...or perhaps the State Department, a.k.a. John Kerry, is not willing to cooperate?

The Hill (September 10, 2013)- The chairman of the Oversight panel, which is leading the Benghazi investigation, threatened Tuesday to subpoena Americans wounded in the terror attack.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry, giving him until Sept. 24 to make the witnesses available. The State Department has said it wouldn't force recalcitrant employees to talk to lawmakers but Issa pointed out that several have talked to media outlets and were interviewed by the State Department's independent panel investigation Benghazi last year.

...yes, I believe that's it.

Are you suggesting that CIA operatives and contractors cannot be subpoenaed?
