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

What does it matter? He was a crazed killer and he's dead; let us be grateful that he is dead.
No one can predict when a person may snap; and, even if someone thought he was acting weird; the police can't pick up every whack job for acting weird. Otherwise all of you nutjobs would be locked up.
It was a terrible, heinous crime. If he didn't have a gun; maybe those people would be alive today.
May if the people that he shot had guns they could have killed him first.

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?
It is called treating a condition.

Healthcare is the overall well being.

I seriously doubt people stop into the Emergency Room for a check up.

Quit pretending the lack of health Insurance or the lack of money is not a deterrent top accessing the healthcare system. It makes you look stupid.

Good luck trying to convince her of that; you are the voice of reason regarding this topic. Carol is a religious fanatic; the candidates know how to get to them using that issue and gay marriage; happens everytime. Gays, guns and God.
That is not to say that a conservative candidate should not oppose government funding of abortions....government staying out of our lives works both ways.

the gun issue is a loser for your side...

If that's the way you feel, then feel free to vote for the likes of Obama or Hillary.
Conservatism is not defined by the abortion issue...in fact, many conservatives, particularly women, will not vote for a strict anti-abortion candidate no matter how conservative on other issues.
Again, Galt, I think you're being too naïve to think most conservatives and many black democrats who are beginning to switch parties based just on the values the republican party holds would stand by a candidate who caved on those values.

But, as I said before, I would vote for almost anyone in this present crisis if they had real solutions to the problems at hand.

I would have voted for Giuliani in a heartbeat if he had been the GOP candidate. Many pro-life conservatives would have also done the same before voting for Obama or Hillary.

Perhaps we're both making too big an issue out of this? Roe v Wade isn't going to be overturned by any one candidate or any one election. I hope it will be a states' rights issue some day. But until then...

How about a candidate who just states that he is personally opposed to abortion but respects the rights of people to make their own decisions about their own lives free of government interference?
Or do you religious fundamentalists want the government making your decisions?
Galt I agree with most of your post but I’m curious… Who should speak for the Unborn?

Apparently, he's going to. He's given the Secretary of State until September 24 and the subpoenas will be issued regardless of his and Obama's stonewalling.

Benghazi, as seen from the grassy knoll

Why do people claim that the Benghazi scandal is “phony”?

To answer that, let’s check in with the people fanning the controversy. They assembled Monday morning at the Heritage Foundation, convened by a conservative group to listen to Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) and several experts on the terrorist attack that killed four Americans in the Libyan city last year.

Some of those onstage posed questions about Benghazi that pointed to serious, if not scandalous, mistakes the government made before and during the attack. But those legitimate questions were undermined by other participants who rolled around the grassy knoll.

The lunacy began when Cliff Kincaid, a leader of Accuracy in Media, the group holding the gathering, suggested that the Obama administration is covering up events regarding Benghazi because the CIA operation there was secretly arming the enemy.“This administration has a policy of supporting al-Qaeda, the same people behind the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11,” he declared.

One of the panelists, former CIA officer Clare Lopez, picked up the theme.“Have we flipped our policy,” she asked,“to where we are placing the power, the influence, the might, diplomatic assets, military assets, intelligence assets, financial assets, at the service of al-Qaeda in the Middle East to bring to power forces of Islamic jihad?.&#8201;.&#8201; . Are we involved in the Middle East to help the forces of Islam, of al-Qaeda, of the Muslim Brotherhood, of jihad and sharia?”

Wolf’s reply:“I think Clare makes a very good point.” And this is the man leading the effort to create a “select committee” to investigate Benghazi.

So the Obama administration, which dispatched Osama bin Laden and decimated al-Qaeda with drone strikes, is now in cahoots with the terrorist network? Sorry, Congressman. I’ve got an appointment back on Earth.

Also, RealDave, and this is right out of your source...
Ice extent is still well above last year’s level. Open water was observed in the ice cover close to the North Pole, while in the Antarctic, sea ice has been at a record high the past few days.
Sea ice extent for August 2013 averaged 6.09 million square kilometers. This was 1.13 million square kilometers below the 1981 to 2010 average for August, but well above the level recorded last year.
Relatively cool conditions over the central Arctic Ocean continued, a pattern that has characterized this summer.
The opening near the pole highlights the complex interplay between the ice, atmosphere, and ocean. Such openings in the ice occur two ways: through winds pushing the ice apart or through melting. Both processes likely played a role in forming the current opening.

I'd say it's safe to stop believing Al Gore and Obama who use even the climate for political gain.

But our party could possibly shoot itself in the foot if we lose our moral backbone considering there's a movement among black Christians to switch parties just because the Democrats no longer hold their same values. That could mean a lot of black votes over the course of the next two years.
Just sayin'.
Having a set of values and wanting the government to dictate decisions in your private life are two different things.

The demand for abortions is driven by poorly educated people who have sex like bunnies without regard to the consequences and nothing can change that.
