Even if states rights determined the outcome, there weren't enough blacks left in the south for the Democrats to oppress anymore. And they would have been left high and dry when the rest of them fled to the other states who passed the Civil Rights Act.
It's total bullshit.
We're talking about 20,000 people just from New York alone since 2009. That number has certainly grown in the past four years and the exodus back to the south has been happening in other major cities in the East and Midwest over the same amount of time.

States rights would have dictated the end of Democrat oppression in the south without the federal government being involved. Trust me.

Release all State Department records concerning Barry Soetoro and his mother. Let's see who went where and with what name.
Supposing Obama is this same Barry Soetoro, when did Barry Soetoro become Barack Obama? He entered the United States with the name Barry Soetoro. Why is he using the name Barack Obama now? Where's the paper trail on that?... inquiring minds want to know.
And, what's the name on the supposed diploma Obama supposedly received from Columbia?

Tell us why Columbia would have on any list the name "Barack Obama" as a graduate, considering he was Barry Soetoro when he claimed to have gone to Columbia.

Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) told constituents at an event Saturday in his district that, although it would amount to a fruitless effort that could potentially damage the country, Republicans have the votes in the House to impeach President Barack Obama.
Fielding a question from a birther at a gathering in Luling, Texas, Farnethold at first lamented that Congress didn't do more to investigate Obama's birth certificate.
“I think unfortunately the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue.” Farenthold said.“The original Congress when his eligibility came up should have looked into this and they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it.”
“You tie into a question I get a lot, if everybody's so unhappy with what the President’s done, why don’t you impeach him,” Farenthold continued.“I’ll give you a real frank answer about that, if we were to impeach the President tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”
Farenthold said the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton should serve as a cautionary tale for Republicans. Clinton was impeached by the House in 1999, but was not convicted by the Senate and therefore remained in office.
“What message do we send to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for and is found innocent? What do we say then is okay,” the Congressman conclude.“Aside from the fact that it wouldn’t be effective, I think there’s some potential damage to society that would be done with a failed attempt at impeachment.”
It was the latest interaction between a GOP congressman and a birther at a recent town hall. Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) told an angry woman last week who identified herself as the "birther brincess" that investigating the birth certificate was a non-starter, even though he said he believed what she was saying. A spokeswoman for Mullin subsequently told TPM that the congressman "just misspoke" and is not a birther. Meanwhile, Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) told constituents earlier this month that he'll back a birther bill in the House, although he believes the issue is a "distraction."

If you break down the ACA into its component parts, like guaranteed issue, family coverage extension, elimination of the life time cap and accountability for premiums paid most people approve of them. In states that have set up exchanges like New York and Maryland premiums have gone down.
Let me ask you this Carol since you claim to be such a Christian. Why do you want a cancer patient to have treatment cut off? Why do you want a childhood cancer survivor to be unable to get insurance for the rest of their lives? Why do you want my family to spend $4000 more so that my son is insured?
Obama and the democrats were drunk with power after the 2008 elections.

They pretty much dismissed Republicans from the start as well as their constituents and Obama pretty much told them and us that he won and to be quiet and get out of the way. I might be paraphrasing a bit but not by much.

Even after Republicans took back the House in 2010 and tried to offer some solutions, Harry Reid as much as gave them the political finger and wouldn't even bring up bills passed by the House up for a vote in the Senate.

And then he blamed the Republicans for being the obstructionists.

An obstructionist in liberal lingo is anyone who doesn't do things Harry Reid's and Obama's way.

Any agreement with someone like that can't be good for the United States. Hell, Democrats have a problem agreeing with him. It took the Louisiana Purchase and Cornhusker Kickback to get ObamaKare through by the skin of the teeth, and of the ONLY two budgets Obama submitted to Congress out of the now 5 budgets the law requires him to submit, the combined vote for all of them stands at 612 to 0.
That's SIX HUNDRED AND TWELVE to FUCKING NOTHING.
Every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot. Obama couldn't get even one vote from the goddam Congressional Black Caucus.

By the way, why haven't we had a budget in, what is it now, five years?

Bigots On Fox: Capitalist Pig On Fox News Lives Up To His Name

Jonathan Hoenig is the manager of the Capitalistpig Hedge Fund and a Fox News contributor who appears weekly on “Cashin’ In.” He routinely blurts out ignorant rants such as declaring that access to health care makes everyone a slave, or that kids would do better on the streets than in public school, or that Social Security should be scrapped.

On this week’s edition of the program (video below) Hoenig demonstrated that he is not above religious bigotry to make a dubious point and to slander a Democratic congressman.

During a discussion about the Inclusive Prosperity Act (aka the Robin Hood tax), a bill that would impose a fee of a fraction of a percent on certain financial transactions, Hoenig abandoned any pretense of debating the merits of the bill and instead decided to attack the bill’s sponsor, Keith Ellison, for his religious beliefs.

Hoenig: I don’t know if Rep. Ellison has read the Constitution. I know he is a practicing Muslim and in Sharia law, there is a prohibition against trading of derivatives, against speculation of any type. And so in my opinion you could make the argument this is even a little bit of Sharia creep here with the cracking down on trade, cracking down on the derivative trade, cracking down on wealth production.

The only “creep” here is Hoenig. His repulsive attack on Ellison’s faith is not only evidence of his ingrained hatred, but he makes no sense whatsoever on a financial basis. Nothing in the bill prohibits derivative trading or any other stock transaction. And in addition to generating billions of dollars, the nominal fee would produce a more stable trading environment that in recent years has become dangerously volatile.

The fact that Ellison is Muslim has nothing to do with the bill. It is co-sponsored in the House by 17 representatives who are mostly Christians (and at least on Jew). Hoenig is obviously not an expert in Islamic practices. Millions of Muslims invest in equities markets in the United States and around the world. That includes one Muslim named Al-Waleed bin Talal, a Saudi prince whose share of stock in the network Hoenig is broadcasting on is exceeded only by Rupert Murdoch and his family.

Furthermore, Hoenig’s snide curiosity about whether Ellison has read the Constitution only reveals his own constitutional illiteracy. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution explicitly grants authority for the government to assess taxes and fees such as the one in Ellison’s bill.

This segment is the perfect capsulization of Fox’s abhorrent philosophy and mission. It illustrates both their overt contempt for anyone who is not a member of their preferred fraternity (in this case Muslims), and their kneejerk opposition to any tax measure that benefits the nation if it imposes even a tiny burden on the wealthy and greedy corporations whose rights they regard as superior to the people.

Hoening is just another ignorant and insulting cretin to whom Fox News provides a platform to disseminate hatred and disinformation. And that includes the program’s host, Eric Bolling, who was quick to agree with Hoenig’s dumbshit commentary.

By the way the Detroit 2012 voting turnout was about 65% of registered voters or about 270,000 votes.
Obama would have carried Michigan without Detroit.
Picture it.

In November 2012, 20% of Detroit was on food stamps. Violent crime was 5 times the national average and it was rated as America’s Most Dangerous City.

40% of Detroit residents wanted to leave the city. Home prices had fallen 54% in just 3 years and Detroit had the highest poverty rate in the nation.

So guess who Detroit voted for by 98%?
