We Democrats are proud of our brown supporters.

The likes of Rubio are running on the platform of being obstructionists.

They've certainly fooled their supporters.

Agreed. Thanks to your Democrat Party and the ACA, Americans now have full confidence in their government. Nevertheless, we and our associates at the NSA are watching to identify the few remaining non-believers.

King Of Pain Lyrics by The Police

There's a little black spot on the sun today
That's my soul up there.
It's the same old thing as yesterday
That's my soul up there.
There's a black hat caught in a high tree top
That's my soul up there.
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop
That's my soul up there.

I have stood here before in the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign,
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain...

There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall
There's a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
There's a blue whale beached by a springtime's ebb
There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web

There's a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

There's a red fox torn by a huntsman's pack
There's a black-winged gull with a broken back
There's a little black spot on the sun today.
It's the same old thing as yesterday,
That's my soul up there..........

I have stood here before in the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
I guess I always thought you could end this reign,
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain..........

I'll always be king of pain..........

Speaking of Mexicans, your old buddy Harry would appreciate any dirt our supporters have on this fella Brian Sandoval who may run against me in 2016. Will need lotsa help to keep our brown casinos workers on the Harry Reid team.

<quoted text>As usual her head is up her azz__she closes her eyes and imagines Cabrini Green, a CHA disaster which was built in Chicago's North side in stages during the 1940's through the 1960's and then demolished beginning in the 1990's through present iirc.
Most large American cities had similar projects but none on the scale of Cabrini Green.
To add some perspective, Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961 and was first elected to a political office in 1997.
"The effort to save the American economy is front and center at the moment, but a term is four long years. Beyond the immediate crisis, President-elect Obama — who hadn’t exactly set a modest agenda before the economic collapse — hopes to transform much of America’s political landscape, from foreign policy to energy to health care.

It’s a daunting to-do list, but urbanists — planners, economists, and environmentalists seeking a change in the way America builds its cities — think that Obama’s task can be made easier. If we rethink our cities — the way we build our neighborhoods and the transportation networks that connect them — we can save energy and reduce emissions, all while giving a boost to our economy.

A man of the city himself — raised in Honolulu and for decades a Chicagoan — Obama has been called the metropolitan candidate. He ran on an “Amtrak ticket” with a man who took the train to work every day, and he’s even riding the rails to Washington for his inauguration. This has raised expectations among urbanists (your author included), and the president-elect has done little to discourage that enthusiasm. He paid homage to rail and transit during the campaign (in a landmark metropolitan speech, for instance) and since his election. And he has even gone so far as to create a cabinet-level Office of Urban Policy."...

Usually the party of a two-term president doesn't end up winning a third election in a row. Rarely.

Of course, Hillary will be made out to look like the next "celebrity president" by 2016 by the liberal media.

They love creating "stars" for the "star struck" majority presently.

Republicans are working with President Obama and tea party is left out in the cold.
Fresh off a trip to Egypt, Sen. John McCain said Sunday he's concerned about a possibility for increased violence there and Congress may have to consider cutting aid to Egypt.
“We could see an eruption of bloodshed that would be horrendous," the Arizona Republican said on "Fox News Sunday."
McCain traveled to Egypt last week with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)
with the blessing of the White House to promote democracy in the nation, which recently underwent what McCain calls a coup. The refusal from the administration to call it as such, however, limits the U.S., McCain said.
You keep supporting the establishment. Mccain is proving the tea party is ahead of the curve. You sheep are a scary bunch.

Cory Booker might well be Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016 ( unless it is Rush Holt Jr. then Cory Booker might be Hillary's HUD Cabinet officer )

George Bush won in 1988 despite two terrible terms in Off ice by the movie cowboy. Compared to the Gipper, Obama looks like the Prophet Mohammed reincarnated.

You bring up a good point, one I've been tapping on this week. If Obamacare is as disastrous as the GOP makes it out to be why don't they just let it run its course, they'll be sure to sweep in 2016 if its what they say it is.
That's what I would do if I were them, makes me wonder why they so desperately oppose it now ya know?
That's the division among members in the party right now. There are those who want to defund it now believing it to be the last chance to save small businesses and the country from chaos, higher premiums and higher taxes.

Others want to let it run its course so when things get really bad they can take back the Senate and then repeal it in 2016, hopefully, with the next republican president.
