" This quotation has not been found in Thomas Jefferson's papers. It has been suggested that it is a paraphrase of Jefferson's statement in the Declaration of Independence, "...whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government...," although such a paraphrase would seem to be taking some radical liberties with the original version. The quotation bears a much closer resemblance to Martin Luther King, Jr.'s comment in his famous letter from Birmingham Jail: "One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws."["
Probably in the Glenda Beck section of google.

You should have read some of the crazy sht Carol used to post on the TeaParty thread__and she would fight with anyone that didn't into Becks creations. There was actually a Glen Beck thread once__haunted by DB Writer and others who post here.
The crazy bastardos have been posting the same sht for five years
You didn't need a Chris Matthews type to tell you about Karl Rove or anyone else in the Bush administration.

If Beck hadn't pulled back the curtain, we still might not know who Jarrett was or the significant influence she has in this White House and this administration.

You don't see a problem not knowing who surrounds any president - much less a top advisor the Washington Post calls "mysterious"?

Rove may have been called a lot of things but never "mysterious".

Wasn't this presidency supposed to be the most transparent?

Alright, airhead, here's your answer.
Maybe valerie Jarrett is an astrologer.
Reagan ran the Government based on the advice from Nancy's astrologist. It was a major scandal when the hidden astrologer was discovered making decisions of State. And Reagan kept the astrologer a secret until Don Regan mentioned it in his memoirs.
At least we know about Valerie Jarrett.
----------
" In his 1988 memoirs, Don Regan wrote about Nancy's consultations with the astrologer, the first public mention of them, which resulted in embarrassment for the First Lady. Nancy later wrote, "Astrology was simply one of the ways I coped with the fear I felt after my husband almost died... Was astrology one of the reasons [further attempts did not occur]? I don't really believe it was, but I don't really believe it wasn't."
"Nancy Reagan wielded a powerful influence over President Reagan. Again stemming from the assassination attempt, she strictly controlled access to the president and even occasionally attempted to influence her husband's decision making."
"Press framing of Nancy changed from that of just helpmate and protector to someone with hidden power. As the image of her as a political interloper grew, she sought to explicitly deny that she was the power behind the throne. At the end of her time as First Lady, however, she said that her husband had not been well-served by his staff. She acknowledged her role in reaction in influencing him on personnel decisions, saying "In no way do I apologize for it."
Pretty sure Michelle Obama would have a lot to say about what this president would and wouldn't do if an assassination attempt almost took his life . And pretty sure she has a strong voice in any decision making.

Your point? Wives always have the most intimate access and influence on any president.
Yeah

Nothing positive just trolling along :-)
For the umpteenth time, I don't "hate" Obama any more than I "hate" you, or Lily, or Realtime, or anyone else on the left.

What I hate is progressive liberalism that is poisoning this nation which is perpetrated by Obama, Lily, Realtime and every progressive liberal on the left.

Only liberals such as yourself hate the person. I hate the ideology.

Paul Ryan Was 'Frustrated' By Conservative Groups, But Still Thinks They Are 'Very Important'
""WASHINGTON (AP)— Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says he was frustrated with conservative groups that protested the bipartisan budget deal he helped engineer, but distanced himself from House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) public criticism of the groups.
The House Budget Committee chairman tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that these groups are "very important elements" of the conservative movement. But the Wisconsin Republican says discussions about these groups should be kept "within the family."
"I think John just got his Irish up there," Ryan said. "I think these groups are valuable. The way I look at it is this: They're part of our conservative family. I'd prefer to keep these conversation within our family."""

Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
Dear Blackman,

Why do you demand equality and cry out that you are treated unfairly? Yet you do not take pride in your own race?
You demand respect from the world but you do not give respect to black women.
The world has watched you and it is very clear that you lack loyalty for your own black woman. So why do you expect people from other races to respect you when you do not even have respect for black women.
How can you expect us to take you seriously when you are famous for dating white women and light skinned women and despise anything and everything to do with black?
When we see black men with white women or light skinned women. We see a man that is completely LOST.
Please take my foolish advice. Respect yourself first and your own black women. Then the rest of the world will respect you.
Everybody knows that respect starts FIRST in the home. Running around demanding respect from other races when you do not respect your own black women is amusing.
Japanese men respect their own women. Indian men respect their own women. Chinese men respect their own women, White men respect their own women.
Black men respect white women and light skinned women .
YOU ARE LOST....Who has bewitched you?
A HOUSE DIVIDED CANNOT STAND.
White men, japanese men, indian men, chinese men know that their own women are important to the advancement of their own communities.
Do you know that the FREEDOM and RESPECT of the black man lies in the black woman?
As long as you dis-respect your black women you will remain under a curse.
The whole world knows you for your LUST for the white woman and light skinned women and then you expect respect??
Love yourself and your women. You are an embarrassment to your race.
Meanwhile we will keep on watching you claiming importance because you are married to a white woman or a light skinned woman.

No previous presidency has faced the wrath of the internet and by proxy the "crazies" like this one has had to. GWB got hit, particularly in his second term but nothing like Obama.

It will get worse as time passes I suspect__due to the likes of entertainment cable news and the scumbags like you who provide echos for the lies.

George W. Bush praised Mandela for forgiving his jailers and that being an example to us all.

Probably because Bush wasn't a radical liberal who promised to fundamentally transform the country into his own image and wasn't mentored by Marxists and whose policies follow the Marxist Manifesto.

Just guessing...but that's probably why Obama is facing more wrath than any other persident.
