Barack Obama, our next President

Really? Family values a "wedge issue"? Enforcing the second amendment a "wedge issue"?
You don't see it 'cause you're in the middle of it clinging desperately to your alternate reality.

Meanwhile, what are your thoughts on the Southern Strategy?

These are very simple questions, and do not require a complex answer. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer these questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Simple questions. Simple answers. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
Got an answer for us, dupe?
Evidently, from one of your previous posts, Obama is selling Texas to China. Or was it NJ?

Oh wait, it was that Obama coin with his picture.

No wait it was confiscating all the guns & selling then to the Mexican drug lords.

Why am I subsidizing your salary?

"“Until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce, rather than expelled from our country.”

http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-01-...

of course what that really means is:

"Until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce, and MS-13 and other gang bangers can continue draining our social services, educational, prisons, maternity wards and all tax-payer funded systems rather than expelled from our country.”

republicans have become a southern party.

Protecting the Middle Class seemed close to President Obama's heart in the address yesterday.

first and second amendments are open to interpretation.

Those are rhetorical questions since this has been shown to you many many times, you just refuse to accept that your party actively sought to bring southern racists rebelling against the Democratic Party into the Republican Party and that's where they've stayed until today and that's why the southern states are red.

6. Tearing von Mises to pieces. Right-wing leaders -- as well as Wall Street bankers, industrial polluters, processed-food producers, and any number of one-percenters -- have their resentful followers believing that there’s no such thing as a good government regulation. Much of their reasoning is found in what is known as the Austrian school of economics, notably in the work of Ludwig von Mises and Frederick Hayek. With a single sentence, Obama dismissed that entire branch of quackonomics with the back of his hand:
Together, we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play.

Who's the biggest polluter in the US?

Yep, the government y'all want to regulate pollution.

Who capped BP's liability for the Gulf oil spill? In a free market BP would have been held completely liable and would likely have been driven into bankruptcy. Why does the US government sacrifice US citizen's lives, health, and property to protect a negligent foreign corporation's profitability?

(In case this didn't post the first time...)
Well, that Nixon doesn't align very well with this Nixon.
In 1952 and 1956, a majority of blacks backed the Republican Party. After the landmark 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education was handed down, Eisenhower ordered desegregation of the Washington DC public schools. In 1957 and 1959, Eisenhower proposed strong civil rights bills to enforce the long-neglected 15th Amendment and give Southern blacks the right to vote. Senate Southern Democrats filibustered the bills. When the Southerners demanded that violators of the new civil rights bill have the right to jury trials (before all-white Southern juries), Democratic senator John F. Kennedy voted with the South, while Republican vice president Richard Nixon broke a tie in the Senate to kill the Southern amendment.
The Nixon years witnessed the first large-scale integration of public schools in the South. Nixon sought a middle way between the segregationist Wallace and liberal Democrats whose support of integration was alienating some Southern whites. By September 1970, less than ten percent of black children were attending segregated schools. By 1971, however, tensions over desegregation surfaced with protests over the busing of children to schools outside their neighborhood to achieve racial balance. Nixon opposed busing personally but enforced court orders requiring its use.
In addition to desegregating public schools, Nixon implemented the Philadelphia Plan in 1970 — the first significant federal affirmative action program. He also endorsed the Equal Rights Amendment after it passed both houses of Congress in 1972 and went to the states for ratification. Nixon also appointed more women to administration positions than Lyndon Johnson had.
What you accuse Nixon and, by mere association, all Republicans of doing in the South doesn't add up to the overall picture.
Some sources referred to the "Southern Strategy" as Republicans using "wedge issues" such as "family values and protection of gun ownership rights" to gain the Southern vote.
Wow...family values is a "wedge issue"?
when Barry Goldwater voted against the JFK/LBJ Civil Right Act of 1964 people of color lost their love for republicans.

Carol, If you can remember Jackie Kennedy's dress you most likely are on Medicare and Social Security?

You are a f*cking idiot.

First of all, the students are LEGAL aliens when they come to our colleges & universities.

Second they currently leave when they can not become legal after college.

Third, we would enable them to be legal if they wanted to stay.

There is not "illegal" anything.

12 Ways Obama Smacked Down the Tea Party and the Right in Inauguration Speech
Reclaiming the language of patriotism, Obama then threw it back in the faces of right-wing Republicans to advance a liberal agenda.
1. Reminding the nation who won the Civil War.
2. Reminding the nation of the history of the civil rights movement.
3. Reclaiming the founding documents for liberalism.
4. Throwing right-wing rhetoric right back at them.
The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.
And Ayn Rand wept.
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/12-...
And the Founding Fathers turned over in their graves.

but Obama's right. I know a lot of ill 90 year olds and social security disability collectors who have started new businesses and created jobs.
