If all of them voted for Obama, I would say they deserve it.

I bet they won't be voting Democrat anytime soon.

Well though he didn't say "of the bus", his reference was racially clear and intended.

Besides, putting aside the racial overtones < or under tones > of Barack's remark, a Dignified President DOES NOT speak that dismissively and demeaning to the other half of The Congress, The Republican Camp of The Government.

But Barack has no dignity, couth, class or integrity.

It wasn't "hate talk bobble heads" and media < media made no mention of Barack's words being derogatory and inflammatory towards The GOP/Republican Party - they thought it SO kewl and amusing, as always and usual > who took it from there and gave it their own spin.

There was no spin. It was clear, direct, intended and hubristically hateful on Barack's part.

Now it's the media's fault? The hate talk bobble heads are to blame? Not Barack?

Barack is solely responsible and accountable for his - those charged words.

If by those "hate talk bobble heads" you are referring to The Republicans, they had every right and reason to be disgusted and embarrassed by The Usurper N Cheat to say such things.

He gets no pass.

OK, I'm back for a little while. Just wanted to clear up one point. Obama did not say "as long as he rides in the back of the bus".
What he said was,“we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.” Hate Talk Bobble Heads and media took it from there and gave it their own spin that "a Black president is telling a white GOP that it’s their turn to ride in back of the bus."

Nice try at redeeming yourself, but it's not working, libtarded one.
How naïve can you get?
Yes, of course I "buy into this". What makes you think America is the only country fighting the war on pollution? You really need to broaden your horizons.

BEIJING (Reuters)- China said on Monday it would give rewards amounting to 5 billion yuan ($816.91 million) for curbing air pollution in six regions where the problem is serious, underscoring government concern about a source of public anger.

The Finance Ministry said the regions eligible for the rewards were Beijing and its neighboring city of Tianjin, the provinces of Hebei, Shanxi and Shandong, as well as the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The awards would be made at the end of the year and would be determined by pollution reduction targets, investment in tackling the problem and falls in PM 2.5 particles, which are especially bad for health, the ministry said on its website....

There was no targeting of conservative groups moron. All that happened here is that groups applying to the IRS for special tax status were checked to see if they were engaged in political activity. They were checked, not targeted. Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.
From the House hearings on this phony scandal;
Rep. Peter Roskam, R-IL: "How come only conservative groups got snagged?"
Outgoing acting IRS commissioner Steve Miller: "They didn't sir. Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That's shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at by TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration]."
You're an idiot Frank!
Sarah Palin was right. They really are like pit bulls. Once they grab onto a conspiracy theory there is no letting go....no matter how many times they are hit over the head with FACTS.

That's it, Ed. You have a penchant for telling tall tales.

This one's as good as the 'dead daughter' pity party you tried to throw.

Or the 'daughter can't keep her doctor bcuz of Obamacare' pity story.

It's a good thing your church has the sacrement of confession.

How many hours are your penance??

Pope Francis is going to rock you rworld, Ed.

He loves the poor and disenfranchised. The Catholic Church will return to it's original mission, as St. Peter created it.

Your selfish belief will be challenged by your church. How will you respond, Ed??

But I didn't hear it on any "hate talk radio".

Or any "hate talk anything".

And though I appreciate your time spent posting this article ...

Hillary said it, and then when it was realized the damage and consequences her remark would cause and bring, her ":handlers" to the rescue. And the rest is back pedal history.

Yes, we both know there are radicals on both sides. My only question is starting to become:
What defines a radical?

I have defended the Right. And I have defended the Left. It is becoming more difficult to "defend" or "justify" much of what the Left does and believes.

**Martin Bashir regarding his Sarah Palin remarks comes to mind.

Called Laura Ingram a slut. Because she's overtly Christian? I don't know -But, not the point

War On Women by Republicans "they" say .....

**Thing is, he's not fringe or radical. He's the norm.

There's another rumor started by Hate Talk Bobble Heads and media. The Birther movement did not start with Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist, Mark Penn, suggested that they focus on Hillary's close ties to America and exploit Obama's time spent living outside the United States.
Penn's Memo:
“All of these articles about his boyhood in Indonesia and his life in Hawaii are geared toward showing his background is diverse, multicultural and putting it in a new light,” he wrote.“Save it for 2050. It also exposes a very strong weakness for him—his roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values.”
"Penn also suggested how the campaign might take advantage of this.“Every speech should contain the line that you were born in the middle of America to the middle class in the middle of the last century,” he advised Clinton.“And talk about the basic bargain as about [sic] the deeply American values you grew up with, learned as a child, and that drive you today.” He went on:“Let’s explicitly own ‘American’ in our programs, the speeches and the values. He doesn’t … Let’s add flag symbols to the backgrounds [of campaign events].”
Penn was not a birther and neither was Hillary. It's a lie. When hate talk radio couldn't make that accusation stick using the memo, they started blaming it on an "anonymous e-mail". Let's face it, you and I know there are radicals in both camps and they will do and say just about anything to denigrate the opposition. Those actions are in no way tied directly to the candidate and to twist someone's words to "imply" another meaning is hogwash.

A country that cannot control its borders is a government failing its duty to its citizens.
Liberals pursue this failure with gusto. Conservatives fight it.
Not too bright are you? I would suggest you go back in history and research which one of your conservative heroes opened the flood gates to illegal immigration.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallup 's_most_admired_man_and_woman_ poll

That's the same poll that's been around since 1946. The same Gallup Poll Bush won 7 times.

So Oabma is the most admired American when he's President, just as Bush was, Clinton was, etc.

Take a look at it.

angry enough to destroy the Republic to get your way, just like children.

Problem for you is you know next to nothing about Obamacare.
All you care about is th eindiv. mandate. That annoys you, but it's only a small part of the overall law.
Bring old paper medical records into the 21st Century is a moldy old health care model??
Giving doctors electronic instant access to patient information is moldy??
Doctors love it!! It gives them levels of detail on their patients never before possible.
You just want to be argumentative. If we get into it, you will walk away with your tail between your legs again.
So let's don't bother.
You're arguing because you're fed and believe bullshit.
Oh plz
You try to change the topic from the old moldy socialized health care-Obamacare and try to refocus on a medical record update that could have been done without it.

Agree. But some too easily confuse evolution with adaption.

But if I may continue my previous thought from a few pages ago...

Even if modern man is a result of ET intervention, the creation would include ETs as well. And one might ask where primitive man came from. But it's plausible that primitive man was not so primitive but lived in caves after the great flood. Which puts into question yet another scientific theory.

However, very ancient civilizations with laser-beam cuts in granite and minute holes drilled into slabs of granite had to be made by technology that simply wasn't possible at that time.

But, anyway, I digress. Life's a mystery. Thanks for humoring me.
