The Administration has no credibility. By kicking me out and not censoring Yanotti you reveal yourselves to be hypocrites and intolerant paranoid right wing conspiracy theorists. You people are full of you know what.
Yanotti has disrespected our President and you condone and even support his despicable actions. Yet when I post about the murder of Trayvon Martin you cut off my opportunity to post. Shame on you!
You have been revealed to all of the BBs as insincere and full of manure.
SPREAD THE WORD that the administration is biased, dictatorial and hypocritical. BOYCOTT THE BUDDIES!!!

Romney is having a hard time coming to terms with his loss, because he never saw it coming even in his wildest dreams. His arrogance and sense of entitlement, along with his being cocooned in an insular bubble with a bunch of sycophants, blinded him to even the possibility. That’s why he prepared a victory speech but not a concession one. In addition, he’s gone back to being a private citizen and is most likely missing all the fanfare that accompanied his campaign. It’s pretty pathetic that he has to stoop to this level for recognition. Like “Ilego” says, he will go to his grave without ever acknowledging that this black man 14 years his junior is his superior in every way, which is why he won a second term.

Unfortunately, it won't be more of the same, it will be worse, as he has no limits now.
The day after the election, he already put in motion, the need to join the UN in a
weapons ban, that will affect, every legal gun in this country. He has pending a few other
treaties, with the UN, that will adversely affect our nation. What I don't understand is how
certain groups fall in stride, when they themselves are being targeted. Like Jews, rich
Whites, upper class minorities, Catholics, Evangelicals. I just don't get it. Of course I do
realize that many voted for the person, and knew nothing or cared about his policies.

Time will tell
I personally believe there may be hanky panky and tampering
How he ever won   over the politically   powerfull Clintons   last time is still mind bogeling.
Romney was no rose but I voted for him as I truly believe Obama will cause us harm.

Amen ... Don't look for any SS increases ... Or anything else that includes us.  We have become the
disposable generation.  And, for all I can see it was his photo ops with Sandy that changed or made
people decide to go on with the sham.  My SIL said that Romey wants to get rid of FEMA ... I never
heard that ... But don't you know that had a lot to do with it and Chris Christie walking arm in arm didn't
help either.

The photo ops with Chris Christie didn't help. Romney did say something about the individual states kicking in during catastrophes, but a big factor was the immigration stance of the GOP which made the Latino vote very strong. I saw them bringing a 105 yr old woman to the polling booth who had never voted in her life. She didn't seem to know who or what she was voting for.

The message from BO was artfully done: they hate women, they don't care about their health care...hammering away. 

Let's face it, they were highly organized, determined and ready to fight. As for the lap dogs of the media, Benghazi will come out in time....

Hillary was serenely quiet.

I hate to say it but the Democratic Party is the party of Satan!

I'll repeat what I put on another thread:

"But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all his commandments and his statues which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the country. Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. Cursed shall you be when you come in and cursed shall you be when you go out. The Lord will send on you cursing, confusion and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you have perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken me. The Lord will make the plaque cling to you until he has consumed you from the land which you are going to possess.~Deut 28:15-21~"

And that's for killing babies, illegitmate marriage when men can copulate with each and the party of no God!

They worship Baal. Baal worship remains alive and well today. The principal pillars of Baalism were child sacrifice, sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual) and pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator).

Pray for our country!

Franny is right , a country cannot continuously and with impunity thumb our noses at the God of creation who governs all.  Unnatural marriage with its inherent sodomy coupled with the 54 million murdered infants since Roe v Wade is an affront long tolerated by a patient but just God. To imagine such sins are without consequences to our well being as a nation is foolhardy.

I personally don't think God has anything to do with it as he gave us free will.
It   is what it is because of very uninformed lower class. Especially the bottom feeders. Unfortunately they now outnumber us.  Another personal opinion is that if you don't work you should not be allowed to have the   privledge of voting.
  
 

Franny Cunningham - Nov 10, 2012   Viewers | Reply to this item
   
Eleanor you are right about free will but in giving us free will we can choose anything we want including choosing hell.  I'm sure you have seen those of us who are about to pass on.  The Church states that there is a tremdous battle for the person's free will by Satan and the devils trying to persuade the person to choose the Devil.  It is why we have the Hail Mary with the ending Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death.

Some critics call those of us who stood against the onslaught of lies and deceit "polarizers". Well call me a polarizer, this to me is akin to "Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God" (John Bradshaw (1602–1659)) we don't need to modify our principles, just apply them consistently and with fervor.
Conservatism works every time it is tried. Look at those focus groups of Frank Luntz, whenever a statement advocating conservative ideas is shown, the meter goes off the charts, with both Republicans and Democrats.

While the voters may have been "the bottom feeders" that put ob1 over the top, it is the
college educated/indoctrinated upper class, that leads the way. Like most, when offered
"freebies" they will follow. Women voters followed the free contraceptives, they reduced
themselves to that level. Believing the fantasy that Republicans would deprive them, of
contraceptives and other basic medical services. Blacks,Hispanics and poor Whites
followed the foodstamps and welfare supply, as well as, the need to vote against the
"Whiteguy." The youth, as well as Blacks and Hispanics clearly demonstrated a "who
cares" attitude, since most could not answer simple questions about ob1's agenda.
Amnesty had very little to do with the Hispanic vote, otherwise, Bush 1, would have
gotten 100% of the Latin vote, after he and Reagan approved the first amnesty.
Reportedly, 1/4 of Evangelicals forgot their faith, for the privilege of voting for ob1.

Luis, you are correct. Yesterday I read a column that confirms your point of view:

Why Hispanics Don’t Vote for Republicans
By Heather Mac Donald

"The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama’s victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican waiting to emerge in the Hispanic population. 

If Republicans want to change their stance on immigration, they should do so on the merits, not out of a belief that only immigration policy stands between them and a Republican Hispanic majority. It is not immigration policy that creates the strong bond between Hispanics and the Democratic party, but the core Democratic principles of a more generous safety net, strong government intervention in the economy, and progressive taxation. Hispanics will prove to be even more decisive in the victory of Governor Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30, which raised upper-income taxes and the sales tax, than in the Obama election."

he Real Reason Obama Got Elected

Here’s an interesting plot twister; Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out, that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out. That is, that they’d vote Obama out of office and try to find someone who could solve the jobs problem in this country.

Turns out, the opposite has happened. Voters in high-unemployment states actually like the president, and the reason is obvious; the Federal Government is paying the jobless, extending unemployment benefits, food stamps, and even underwriting disability payments from Social Security.

Think we’re different from the Europeans? Think again. The proportion of Greek men in their 30’s that are working is higher than the proportion of men who work in the United States. That’s what this election was all about. People voted for free stuff, free money, and free benefits. A chicken and health care in every pot.  

It’s not just the people who lost money in the recession who are hooked on government money. The total number of people getting government money are rising. In fact, most of what you suspect about entitlements may be wrong. If you think the proportion of people getting government benefits has been stable over time, think again. In 1983, less than 30% of us got help. Today, it’s 49%.

If you think Democrats alone are responsible for entitlement spending, you’d be mistaken. In the last half- century, entitlement spending has grown faster under Republican presidents than Democratic ones.

Think transfers are a small part of the Federal Government’s budget? Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Until 1960, government transfers were less than a third of the budget. Today, it’s two-thirds of federal spending. That leaves just one out of every three dollars for things like defense spending. 

So here’s where we are; nearly 200 years after Francis Scott Key penned the national anthem and immortalized the phrase,“Land of the Free.” We’ve become just that, but not in the way we quite expected.

We’re the land of the free because an increasing number of us are getting a free ride. That, my friends, is not the American way.

These two thing alone should have been enough to defeat him.

I hate all the "we got our first Black president" nonsense.  Who cares what race he is.  If his policies are not something I agree with, he could be a Martian and it wouldn't matter.  No one should be voting for someone based on if he's "Black".  It's bad if they didn't vote for him "because he's black", but personally I feel it's just as bad if people voted for him BECAUSE he's black.

He has just dug a very deep finanacial hole which will take many years to recover from. If he keeps up his practices the next four years are going to be terrible :-(

Jim McDonough,
To quote Judy,“everyone is entitled to their own opinion and their own personal choice, no matter how wrong it may be to others.” I agree but no one is entitled to their own facts. We can post all the facts and truths about Øbama and for our pains get the equivalent of a glassy eyed stare, i.e. no comprende or they just ignore them. It is as if the truth doesn't matter to some people. My friend George Fehr posted a litany of those facts on this thread. I guess the Biblical quote from Jeremiah 5:21 holds true:“‘Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.”
And I agree, Judy didn’t try to shut the rest of us up. She can post to her heart’s content here without fear of being deleted or ostracized. Truth is she is not a lonely voice crying in the wilderness as her candidate won the election carrying NJ big-time so it is we here at Bushwick Buddies who are the minority but damn proud of it and we will not be intimidated into silence by those who won the contest.

JimP,
I have observed that there are forthright "in your face" honest liberals.
And then there are sneaky liberals that answer every question with a question, and hide behind the word,'independent'.
They pretend that their independent concern is of consequence not by constructive dialog, but by dismissing honest criticism and demanding answers to questions that they present, and that they themselves cannot answer...they say that they side with the man and not with any party because they and the man agree...but they don't tell what it is that they 'agree' too, because in truth, their answers would betray them as duplicitous liberals of a sort that do not deserve the same respect duly given to the honest, and forthright of any political persuasion.

They are the sort that wear the ribbon that announces that (tho they do not participate) they are in agreement with whatever is the cause de jour that the ribbon is supposed to signify.

Jim McDonough,
What it comes down to in my opinion is this, if you are a true independent, then by all that is holy or all that is logical you cannot make the first mistake again, you just cannot.
If you are paying attention at all and observing the unfailing destruction of this country from within you cannot repeat the error. Truthfully many did not as witness Romney’s edge among so-called independents.
So the ones who did make the same mistake helped usher in the end game of destruction as practiced by the Alinsky Rules for Radicals.
It has been noted that older white men have as their president Mitt Romney. This is noted disparagingly by the libs as though there can be nothing good among such a group.
All of this would be bearable but for the sad truth that had there not been sizable defections from this same group Romney would be the nation’s president as well.

Judy thank you for your own kind words to me and your keen perception of what should be so obvious to everybody, namely that free speech to be truly free requires tolerating other points of view. 

I also should point out that my friend Jim McDonough didn’t criticize your use of caps, he was pointing out that the original poster who triggered the mayhem that followed used caps to underscore his provocative order for the rest of us to STOP.  Knowing Jim McDonough as I do I can say with assurance he wasn’t being critical of you or anyone else who use all caps.

HOWEVER,LAST YEAR MY USING CAPS CAUSED LOTS OF CRITICISM AND COMMENTS ON THIS SITE AND ALSO A FEW PERSONAL CALLS TO MY HOME ADVISING ME OF "THE RULES"   FOR TYPING ON THE INTERNET. IT PROMPTED ME TO DISCONTINUE WASTING MY TIME WHILE I WAS ONLY TRYING TO CONNECT WITH OTHER BUSHWICKITES--LIKE THOSE WHO DID WRITE OR CALL ME TO SAY HOW PETTY THE CRITICISM WAS. SO I WAS OFF THIS SITE FOR ALMOST A YEAR. TO HAVE THIS THROWN IN MY FACE AGAIN IS INSULTING. JIM MCD.: SO, I'M "SHOUTING"? I, PERSONALLY, FIND IT   "RUDE" THAT PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN DICTATE HOW OTHERS SIGN ON OR OFF.  I AM UNFAMILIAR WITH OTHER WEBSITES YOU LISTED AND REALLY DO NOT CARE WHAT THEIR "RULES" ARE. IF YOU SEE ONE OF MY COMMENTS POSTED AND CONSIDER IT RUDE, DON'T READ THE COMMENT POSTED! IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT. IF YOU FIND MY COMMENTS "UNWORTHY OF COMMENT", JUST DON'T READ NOR RESPOND. "WHILE IT IS PERMISSIBLE"...WHO NEEDS YOUR OR ANYONE ELSE'S PERMISSIOIN TO POST A COMMENT??? I FIND MANY ON THIS SITE WHO CONSIDER THEMSELVES PERFECT/SELF RIGHTEOUS ("IF THE SHOW FITS", SIR!) AND I JUST IGNORE THEM AND GO ON. APPARENTLY, IT IS OBVIOUS YOU SPEND LOTS OF TIME ONLINE. GOOD FOR YOU. BUT, I HAVE A LIFE OUTSIDE OF THE WEB'S DOMAIN. I FIND THE NEED TO BE A WISE ASS TO PROVE SOMETHING TO BE YOUR ISSUE, NOT MINE. HAPPY HOLIDAYS. JUDY RICCA

How uncomfortable and sad I feel that threads have to turn into a battle over caps.

No one is going to follow all the 'rules.' Let us try to be civil to one another in our posts whether it's caps or politics.

Many people live a life that is full of rules and we should begin to realize that these rules and laws have benefits and reasons for existence and laws should be viewed as positive things in the world.  But caps are not rulles or laws and   you cannoy live by them every day,  What if you if you violate them, will you pay the consequences?  And what consequences are they?  As my father inlaw said "Don't sweat the small things"

Judy, Judy, Judy.....
At first I thought your post was unworthy of comment, because you got it wrong, and that is of no consequence to me,

I wasn't referring to your use of all caps, but if you think the shoe fits, by all means wear it...
..and for your edification, whether you're sending emails, chatting on line, or using an instant messenger....using ALLCAPS is referred to as "SHOUTING."

While it is permissible to occasionally use ALLCAPS to emphasize a point (as did Bill)
people find entire sentences written in capitals hard to read.
As a result "shouting" on line is considered rude.

I always understood secrecy from the government due to security purposes but things coming from rhe White House are not quite true and the administration's answers   or non answers leave much to be desired.  Benghazi (spelling) and the picture painted by this adminstration certainly appears questionable.  The Republicans had Watergate but at least no one was killed!

"Wait until after the election, then we can talk." That does not sound like a #1 man. I pray he will do well for the country for all of us. Today I read that there will be a Federal tax of 3.7% on our homes that will be going to Obama-care for the seller. So it's not just going to be taxation for the rich.

The excuse that this was all the fault of President Bush and the Republicans is false.

The last budget deficit submitted by Bush and the Republican congress was $161 billion (through January 2007 the date the Dems took over the House and Senate). Obama's first budget deficit was $1.4 trillion.  And it has been over a trillion dollars every year since!

Candidate Obama called Bush's deficit spending unpatriotic. What does that make him? He was reelected because not enough people were able to see through the media blizzard of lies, all or almost all of them in the tank for this man.

If a Republican did anything approaching this colossal breach of the public’s trust he or she would be lambasted 24/7 by the hyper partisan leftwing mainstream media and they wouldn’t quit until he was defeated or impeached.

I voted against Obama because of his abortion stance and his approval of gays to copulate. The third reason was his socialist/communist friends and the communist party's endorsement.

STOP IT!  JUST STOP IT!!  You sound like those DC politicians you complain about.  You know, the ones who talk a lot but do nothing.
LISTEN TO YOURSELVES!!  GO ON!  Go back and reread all the crap you’ve posted here.
There isn’t one concrete recommendation for a solution to any of the many problems facing this country.  NOT ONE!
Talk is cheap.  Name calling accomplishes nothing.

Bill,

Romney offered a detailed program that would have saved Medicare and Social Security among other things. Next time around we ought not allow the leftwing media act as the arbitrators of our debates. There is no reason at all to do that in the primary season or even during the presidential debates we shouldn't rely on 3 or 4 debates moderated by our political enemies, a balance must be maintained.

Any conservative Republican applying the tried and true conservative economic principles would not have added more to the deficit in one term than all the other Presidents including George W. Bush combined.  Keep in mind, Obama called George W. Bush “unpatriotic” for adding 4 trillion to the debt in his eight years.  If any conservative called Obama that he’d be marched off to political correctness jail.

Ronald Reagan in 1980 faced a worse economy than Obama did in 2008. In 1979 it appeared to me and many others that what Carter had done to the country –  high interest rates, double digit inflation, high unemployment, a misery index etc was going to take a long long time if ever to be repaired. It turned out we did it and it didn't take nearly as long as we thought. Reagan applied conservative principles, lowered taxes, repealed regulations, gas prices came down and lo and behold Americans were able to take back their country.

Same will happen here once the nation is back in the hands of people who love this country and know how to leave Americans free to fix and grow an economy.

To sum up, I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that tried and true conservative principles, properly applied would have had the unemployment rate down to the 4.7% it was under Bush.  Obama and his leftist minions like to say the President inherited these huge deficits from the Republicans as though Senator Obama hadn’t voted on so many of the big spending programs and would have voted on many more given the opportunity.  Their mantra is we don’t want to turn back the clock to those bad old days. Yes we do want to turn back the clock to before the Democrats did what they did to this country since taking over in January of 2007.

As I mentioned in my earlier post the last budget deficit submitted by Bush and the Republican congress was $161 billion. Obama's first budget deficit was $1.4 trillion. 

We want to go back to when we had a president who loved and respected the country.

We want to go back to a period of time when our homes were worth something and their value increased.

We want to go back where a college education meant a decent job.

We want to go back to where there was only 4.7% unemployment.

We want to go back to where there was the best health care system in the world, accessible to one and all.

We do want to go back to the days of American exceptionalism.

Ronald Reagan said "Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it."

As to stopping it, ain't gonna happen, too many good and decent members of the BB are fed up to their nostrils with this phony baloney regime and they do not appreciate being told to shut up. Practice what you preach my friend.

Dear Judy,

People have genuine concerns about the economy. I for one worry when I think that a major change will be a walloping 3.8% new tax tagged on to my house should and when I sell it. Most of us are far from being in the $250 thousand a year category.

This election reminds me of the 1964 election when Goldwater was bombed.  Johnson did not run again and 5 years later the voters were wishing they had not voted for him.

Jim, First of all I did not say “shut up”.  Go back and read my post.  I said “stop it”.  Second, you missed my point entirely.  Wining about what has happened in the past and name calling accomplishes nothing.  Learning from what was done in the past, what worked and what didn’t, is always a worthwhile exercise.  What I would like to see here is coherent, factual discussion about what can be done to solve some of the big issues of our time.  So far, there has been none of that in this thread.  Allow me to make some suggestions: A) Unemployment, B) Healthcare, C) The National Debt, D) Revising the tax code, E) Immigration.  I would be happy to participate in any of these discussions using facts not fiction, and in a rational manner.  I thought I would like to have these discussions in this group because we come from similar backgrounds and grew up with similar values in the same neighborhood.  There should be a good age range although I sense we are a little lite in the under 30 group.  I am sure I can learn a lot from others in this group.  I do not wish to fight.  I wish to learn. “Nobody wins a fight”.(Patrick Swayze in the movie “Road House”).

Although Obama is not a proclaimed Socialist, we do know that he is the most left-wing liberal elected to national executive office since Henry Wallace.

Yet---despite his vision, he has not been able to sustain deep connection to more than 50% of the American people that his election in 2008 seemed to promise. His promises have quite frankly quickly faded into mists.

Most of all, he has not been able to restore liberalism as the dominant philosophy of our country.

Third point:- in Benghazi we are in murky waters.

And yes, we did do something, we voted on election day.

There is no 'fighting' here, there is no 'crap talk,' we are simply expressing opinions in hopefully an open-minded forum.

Excellent points Camille.
Bill,
Dictionary meaning of Stop:
To cause to halt, cease, or desist
In capital letters no less and the words that followed what exactly were we supposed to stop? Eating? Sleeping? In context it could mean nothing else than to cease our posting on the subject or in other words shut up.
If you tuned into this site more often than just a cursory glance all these subjects were written about ad infinitum as they came up. It should have been even more but there are on this site a few members who dislike all mentions of politics or religion (I am not one of them, needless to say) so for the most part we try to keep it in check.
The election is over your side won ours didn’t so we move on to the next big battle in 2014. I am sick to death of the insanity that produced this amateur president. The author of the following is unknown but the sentiments probably sums up what so many here think but dare not say:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”-- Author Unknown

Bill,
Some of us are here to vent, and offer speculation...and to listen.
How can that escape you?
As far as I know, none of us are 'office holders', ergo,speculation is all we have, and a chance to vent with other Bushwick Buddies is a privilege we all enjoy, or we wouldn't be here. 
This is a place that hears all viewpoints, and without knowing the various viewpoints, we can hardly respond with our own view...that may or may not be in agreement.
You want to offer what you think is constructive discourse? Go ahead, no one is stopping you. As I've already said, we are here to listen to each other, but if we come here to dictate what each of us can and cannot say, or how we say, or don't say it, the purpose for being here is defeated before we arrive.
As for me, I don't mind that you said what you said, I mind that you appeared to feel that the Bushwick Buddies are in need of your input, rather than wanting your input.
The difference is palpable, and should not have escaped you.
What you offer is a list of what you want to see here...instead of giving us a list, perhaps you should have picked one, and offered your constructive ideas for us to ponder.
So far all you've done is criticize us because you are dissatisfied with what we have said, or did not say among ourselves, while you have done nothing but announce that you don't like what we have been saying.
And you call what we say,"crap".
Go back and read your own post if you really want to see what crap is!

Afterthought, The first constructive thing that needs to be done, is to get rid of the schmuck in OUR White House,  and his enablers that are perpetrating those problems on your list.

To present you with facts I post Obama's colleagues all of whom are registered to the communist party or are socialists:

Also to comment on your post of no one doing anything on this site, First I must say I was a Committeeman In Smithtown in my youth and ran for political office for which I had to vote   for a political rep of our party.  I also was a campaign manager for a congressional candidate.  Now that I'm an ancient, I have gotten away from the political stuff because politically the U S is on the wrong tract.  I do devote my time to pro life as I believe what Jesus said that "What good does it do you to gain the whole world and lose your soul" which is happening in the U S today.  Many of us have been in the trenches!

I want to comment on your post of lack of solutions on this site.  Solution - Obama's impeachment
  
 

Bill Voigt 
   
Ok, I will try to get back to everyone and answer everything thrown my way.

Jim,
A)  I tune in to this site every single day.  A day rarely goes by when I miss.  I enjoy the photos and the info about our old neighborhood.  I do not always have any comments.  I add input when I can.
B) I went to the top of this thread and clicked “category”.  I scanned the list of categories presented and did not see anything that sounded like it might be a discussion of any of the topics I suggested in my earlier posting.  If there is someplace else on this site I should look please let me know.  I would be happy to read about previous discussions about any of those topics.
C) Neither party is my “side”.  I am an independent and try to vote for the person not the party.  If it were up to me political parties would be banned, made illegal, and every candidate would run on their own merits.  Many times I find myself voting for the lesser of two evils.

Franny,
A) I do not contest your list of communist party members and/or socialists.  But that list does nothing for a discussion of any of the topics which helped decide this election and still face this country as unresolved issues and/or problems (please see my earlier post).
B) I did not say anything about anyone not doing anything on this site.  In my earlier post I commented that what I was reading sounded like a lot of wining without any concrete suggestions for solving any of this nation’s issues.  So far all I am seeing is more wining and personal attacks but still no suggestions for solving issues.
C) I applaud you for your political work when you were young.  Most people do not wish to get involved.
D) I respect your pro life position.
E) Your solution –  Obama’s impeachment.  If he commits an impeachable offence, I agree.

I saw Huchabee's comments on CCN this morning. The scary thing is, he's got fanatic followers.

Fanatic
1. A person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal, as in religion or politics.
2. Someone who is marked or motivated by an extreme, unreasoning enthusiasm, as for a cause.
3. A fanatic, a zealot, a militant, a devotee; all refer to people who show more than ordinary support for, adherence to, or interest in a cause, a point of view, or an activity.
4. Marked by excessive enthusiasm for and intense devotion to a cause or idea.
5. Etymology: From about 1525, "insane person", from Latin fanaticus, "mad, enthusiastic, inspired by a god," originally, "pertaining to a temple," from fanum "temple," related to festus "festive". The current sense of "extremely zealous", especially in religion, is first attested in 1647. The noun is from 1650, originally in a religious sense, of nonconformists.
Fanatic and zealot both suggest excessive or overweening devotion to a cause or belief.
Fanatic further implies unbalanced or obsessive behavior or a wild-eyed fanatic. A zealot, only slightly less unfavorable by implication than the term fanatic, implies a single-minded partisanship; such as, "a tireless zealot for tax reform".
Militant stresses vigorous, aggressive support for or opposition to a plan or ideal and suggests a combative stance.
