When you have your biggest supporters saying ‘Its Obama’s Fault’ not Good!!
Obamacare forces black college to cancel healthcare, leaving students uninsured and disappointed!!
Then you have Oprah saying: Racists Have to Die for Racism to End.... Its older white people that are the problem she must have been referring to White Liberals/Democrats….Right?

Please stop saying that the Dems "won the election" on Obamacare. They won the election by lying about Obamacare.

Unlike Bush, there was no draft to dodge. In peace time, the majority of those who join the military are those who are not academically inclined or are underprivileged members of society.
Without a draft, there is absolutely no reason for someone who is academically inclined to join the military in peacetime if he/she has no interest in a military career and can afford higher education without the help of the GI bill or military schools. None.
your argument speaks for itself as to the shallowness of your patriotism and your sense of morality....

besides, Obama was hiding at Harvard while Americans were fighting in Desert Storm....

Bush did not dodge the draft.

Bill Clinton, liberal hero and coward, did exactly that. IMO that should disqualify ANYONE from becoming Commander in Chief of the armed services.

What's your point troll?

That's a good thing ahole__did you think that there was a Democrat in the race?
the opponent was a State Senator who was backed by the Republican "establishment"....

as for whether there was a Socialist DemoKKKrat candidate, who cares...

Exactly.

I do understand their shame and embarrassment however. Obama is an excellent con man.

the past is the past, but...

any form of compulsory national service, including the military draft, is a form of slavery that is inconsistent with a free society...

PHILADELPHIA (CBSDC)— The Washington Redskins team bus was apparently egged on the way to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Sunday morning.

Defensive lineman Chris Baker posted a photo of the egg smeared side of the vehicle on Instagram.

“Our bus got egged on the way to the game,” his caption reads,“only in Philly lol.”

Stay classy, Philadelphia.

since there hasn't been a draft since 72, that would make SI at a minimum 60 years old.

He has lost the trust of millions. He is now seen as a liar by millions who thought he wasn't.

IMO, this massive blow to his ego will result in him hopping on the Obamacare campaign trail yet again. He needs adoring crowds and reassurance.

His handlers will somehow see that he gets it.

Fighting? ROFLMAO__the Iraqi's were surrendering to US news crews dumbazz. And on the odd chance that DaBammy had served__it would have been a real safe deal JAG etc.

Not many US troops died in that campaign__interesting that 15 females died while only 8 were KIA* in Vietnam.

I have to strongly disagree with that line of BS. In order to live in a free society and enjoy those freedoms, you need to contribute to that society. Sometimes that means contributing some of your time, maybe your life. I can't imagine what this world would be like if my father's generation felt the way you do. would we all be speaking German?

Listen you yellow belly chicken sh!t conservative wimp
NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE.

FREEDOM COMES AT A HIGH COST.

Gid jerks like you make me sick with disgust. I'm a liberal, but I know that freedom comes with a cost, so I paid that cost with 6.5 years service in the Corps.

BTW, every country in Europe requires some sort of service to their country.

The opponent, Riser, was an establishment/Tea Party candidate who had been serving in the LA legislature. Additionally he was supported by Gov Jindall.
