Riiiiiight.

*[N]ow you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally – and very transparently – block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. And it’s nothing short of that blatant.”-- Debbie Wasserman Schultz

*"Spotlighting [Obama's] elite education is tantamount to racial bigotry because it insinuates that 'he took the place of someone else through affirmative action, that someone else being someone white.'" -- Jonathan Capehart

"Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t. But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!" -- Maureen Dowd*

*"They are happy to have a party with black people drowning." -- Yahoo News Washington bureau chief David Chalian on the Republican National Convention, which was going on at the same time as Hurricane Isaac.

*"Republicans are using [the IRS scandal] as their latest weapon in the war against the black man.‘IRS’ is the new 'N****r.'" -- Martin Bashir

*Mississippi Democratic Congressman Bennie Thompson says Clarence Thomas is an “Uncle Tom,” Mitch McConnell is a “racist,” and that Republicans are only anti-big government and anti-Obamacare because President Obama is black.

*¨I think it is very important to take a long view at what’s going on here. I’ll be able to dig up some emails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesn’t look good, especially from people who made up their mind that they don’t want it to work because they don’t like the president. Maybe he’s of the wrong color, something of that sort.¨-- Jay Rockefeller (D-Va)

*That disrespect is shown to the President and his position is a bigger indication that America is not yet in a post-racial society, according to [Oprah] Winfrey.“As long as people can be judged by the color of their skin,” she said,“the problem is not solved.

*"That really bothered me. You notice (Romney) said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us. I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is ‘n*ggerization.’" -- Touré

There are literally hundreds more, but you get the picture. This is the truth, not your drivel.

BTW, Obama hasn't exercised Executive Privilege as much as other presidents.

So there's a fallacy in your opinion.

Y u p !
Tea party doing the wave and Todd Akin on the march...

Continuing his disastrous media tour to hock his new book, former GOP Senate candidate and current punch line Todd Akin appeared on WNDtv, a part of the far-right media universe of WND (which, coincidentally, is publishing Akin’s book), to further complain about how his infamous comments about “legitimate rape” were used as an excuse to “destroy [his] character” and “make fun of” him.

To explain how he became so woefully mistreated, Akin cited the right wing’s favorite boogeyman, Saul Alinsky. Critics of Akin’s implication that only women who are lying about being raped get pregnant, Akin said, were using “the old Saul Alinsky … tactics” of attempting to “destroy their [him]” and “make fun of [him]” rather than “dealing with the thought or the issue or the question at hand.”

This, Akin claimed, is a “very destructive politics” that the left uses “very effectively” to “destroy people’s credibility.” And one of the saddest things about it, Akin noted, was that it works:“Republicans cower and are afraid of it,” he said.

Optimist that he is, though, Akin shared his insights as to how America can save itself from this Alinskyite scourge. His answer? Heroism!

"One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. I think he(he’s) giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me." -- Karen Finney

Sheesh! Talk about projecting...

Where was this Finney-twit when Harry The Racist Reid was hammering Hispanics who dared leave the plantation and vote GOP?

Whoops: Congressman Accidentally Reveals Why Democrats Really Want Amnesty
Author: Rusty WeissPosted: July 25, 2014Comments: 12
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) may have let the cat out of the bag when he confirmed the true reason behind his party’s push toward amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Elections. Specifically, amnesty would bring in 4-5 million new Democrats.
Gutiérrez, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, railed against portions of his own party standing in the way of human rights at the border. He urged his colleagues in the Senate not to play politics on this matter.
Then he provided this little dangling carrot.
Amnesty after all, can be a good thing for the Democrat party:
“Let me just say in about an hour, I’m going over to the White House. I’ll be meeting with Jeh Johnson and the Chief Legal Counsel to the President of the United States. We’re going to sit down and we’re going to negotiate additional terms and avenues the President can use and prosecutorial discretion, and I think we can get three or four or maybe even five million people.”
Watch the clip below (via Digitas Daily):
Of course, anyone who has been paying attention knows that increasing Democrat numbers is the one true goal behind a push for amnesty or immigration control.
Obama crony and former SEIU Vice President Eliseo Medina has the best look into the mindset of liberal lawmakers when it comes to immigration laws, or the lack thereof.
Medina previously served as a member of Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council and as honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. As such, he used the platform of an America’s Future Now! Conference in 2009 to outline a plan for long-term Democrat rule through blanket amnesty.
“We reform the immigration laws; it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. If we have eight million new voters who care about, and will be voting, we will be creating a governing coalition for the long term.”
Rest assured, Democrats won’t stop in their pursuit of “a governing coalition for the long term.”

I think the Senator realized the Dems were losing the border battle even with fellow Dems so had to plainly lay out the reason they should support it. "For the children" was replaced with "For the Party"

To find out, we would have to stop aiding israel and turn attention to Palestine. We would have to spend the next 65 years arming the Palestinians and building up their military and infrastructure like we did israel. Then and only then could there be a fair fight.
Syria and Egypt had some sophisticated equipment supplied by the Soviet Union during the Yom Kippur war. Israel gained a lot of land during that one.

Rusty Weiss is a right wing hack Flacko.

That said, your hero "shrub" had eight years to take control of the nations Southern border and overhaul the nations sorryazz immigration policies and backed away from the challenge due to certain members of his own party and talking heads such as Lou Dobbs.

Mel Martinez resigned from the US Senate due to the Bush administration's nonsense. Bush's Secretary of State, Colin Powell, supported Barack Obama for POTUS.

The Republican Party can't solve problems Junebug__only create them!
