Good article.
I just figured out what would really confuse you and Sonic. Start a website saying "We Progressives" and post articles that are at times critical of Obama.

What would you do? They say they are Progressives.

How Many Presidents Have Been Divorced?

Despite many public and presumably even more numerous private instances of infidelity, presidential marriages have remained remarkably stable throughout history. America has only had one divorcee president, but two widower presidents moved on to second wives while in office. And one president never got married at all.
Ronald Reagan was the only president who ever divorced his wife. But he left that first marriage so early in life, and moved on to such a stable and functional second marriage, that the voters didn't care, said Michael Nelson, a professor of political science at Rhodes College and coauthor of The American Presidency: Origins and Development, 17762007 (CQ Press, 2007). Some presidents, like Franklin Roosevelt, faced the possibility of divorce after their wife discovered an affair , but kept the marriage together for the sake of their political career, Nelson said.
A president, or someone who wants to be president, has every reason to do whatever it takes to keep his wife from divorcing him, Nelson told Life's Little Mysteries. The political price of divorce, where he was the guilty party, even today, would be significant.
The Clintons displayed the political power of avoiding divorce, Nelson said. Had Hillary Clinton not stood by her husband after the public learned of his affair with Monica Lewinsky, President Clinton would have likely faced removal from office or forced resignation, Nelson said.
However, that does not mean that every president has remained in the same marriage throughout their lives. John Tyler and Woodrow Wilson both lost their wives during their presidency, and remarried during their term, Nelson said.
Only one president, James Buchanan, remained a bachelor for his entire life, Nelson said. But he had a good reason for not marrying.
James Buchanan was unmarried at the time he was in office, and is widely thought of to have been what we would today call gay, Nelson said.
So,Obama the first 'black' president may also be the first divorced president during or after office. Interesting. Must be the Chicago way!
"Reagan moved onto a more stable and functional marriage" Bwwaaahaaa! Their children hated her! He rejected his children for Nancy. Functional?
The Obama's are not getting divorced; you are a victim of the typical righwinger who passes around dirt after dirt every single day to the point where you believe it. You salivate at any hint of scandal; tingling with joy at the possible misfortune of others. You're sick in the head.

the “Tom Joyner Show” on Wednesday, Rev. Al Sharpton spoke about the meaning of Easter:
“I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how your crucified, nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.
*
The story of Jesus on the cross. No matter what they humiliated him with. No matter how they mocked him he took it, because he knew he could rise. And the story of Easter and my message for this Easter session is no matter what unearned suffering you go through, that if you know you can rise above it, don’t become like the diseases that you fight.
*
As I looked at President Obama at our convention last Friday where all he took he’s been able to rise politically again.. I’m not comparing him to Jesus, but I am saying that to every crucifixion there is a resurrection for those who believe…”
Wow. Is something wrong with this, or is it just me?

They are reporting your hero from acdc is dying of AIDS.
;-(
You're a moran!!!

AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young is suffering from dementia and will likely never play again, the Sydney Morning Herald is reporting.

Reports hinted that the heavy metal legends had planned to retire after learning the truth, but they said in a statement they planned to carry on.

“That is true, Malcolm is sick,” friend Mark Gable told Australian public radio on Wednesday.“From what I understand, and it’s even been confirmed in part by his son Ross (Young), that it would appear Malcolm is unable to perform anymore.

“It’s not just that he is unwell, it’s that it is quite serious. It will constitute that he definitely won’t be able to perform live. He will probably not be able to record.”

Gable said it is unlikely the 61-year-old guitarist will ever play live again.

A family member told the Herald that while the diagnosis remained foggy, Young’s condition had deteriorated to the point where his loved ones were looking into full-time respite care.

The Herald reported that Young is having difficulty “remembering familiar faces” and is having increasing problems communicating.

“His memory loss is so bad it is consistent with Alzheimer’s or dementia although we do not know that is what it is,” the source told the Herald.“There has been talk about cancer too.”

As for AC/DC calling it quits, the source called retirement talk “pure speculation.” Yet music industry insiders say Young’s brother Angus — who helped him co-found the band in 1973 — believes “Malcolm is the band” and could be irreplaceable.

And there is a precedent for AC/DC replacing ailing — or dead — members. Brian Johnson replaced the band’s beloved frontman, Bon Scott, after the latter’s booze-fuelled death in 1980.

And when Malcolm Young was previously ill, his nephew Stevie replaced him on tour and hardly anyone noticed, the Herald reports.

what we already know.....

A new study from Princeton spells bad news for American democracy—namely, that it no longer exists.

Asking "[w]ho really rules?" researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America's political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

Using data drawn from over 1,800 different policy initiatives from 1981 to 2002, the two conclude that rich, well-connected individuals on the political scene now steer the direction of the country, regardless of or even against the will of the majority of voters.

What's Wrong with the Right
.....Once again, the establishment right takes its marching orders from what the destroyers on the left dictate. The right consistently allows the left to destroy our most effective voices – Sarah Palin is a major example. Unequivocal voices like Palin’s are tarred and smeared, while the right instead offers up weak and meandering fools like John McCain – and stands by him even when he poses with al-Qaida leaders in Syria and insists that they’re “moderates.”
We see many come out in a burst of light, political supernovas like Allen West, Palin, and now Ted Cruz. But we also see the right abandon these same people when the left goes after them like the jackals and the vultures they are. Did the GOP establishment have Palin’s back? What did the GOP establishment do to defend Palin from the attacks by vultures in the media like the affable Eva Braun, aka Katie Couric, and the contemptible Charlie Gibson?
The leaders of the conservative establishment are clearly more comfortable with the weakest and most liberal figures on the right than they are with genuine conservatives. And then they abandon their flavor of the month as soon as the leftist sharks start circling.
This is how the establishment right makes it bones: on the bones of the principled right. This is how the establishment right gets legitimacy: by pandering to the left and selling out the clear, uncompromised voices on the right. Instead of destroying our philosophical enemies in the war of individualism vs. statism, the establishment right trims its message, then trims it some more, desperately hoping to appease leftists and their media lapdogs.
Is it any wonder that we can’t win elections? McCain? Romney? We can’t win until we find our spine.
http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/04/whats_...
so you having trouble finding some spine? though all of this right wing whining about that that can't be changed by right wing whining would lead some to question if you ever had a spine.
Pffft, so the right does not try to operate using one brain like progressives and to you this is a bad thing.
