I love New York! To paraphrase a recent Stewart guest, "If New York City was a good enough symbol of America for the terrorists to attack, it's good enough to be America to me." Me too, Sarah and Jon, me too.

Palin ABUSED her power! The verdict in in!

As a former republican I feel sad and upset and I'm crying right now! I cannot believe Palin would lie and said that she did not abuse her power!

I'm an EX-REPUBLICAN who will be voting for Obama-Biden 08

Obama's Working Resume:

1992- Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years, being first classified as a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and then as a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004.

1993 joined Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a twelve attorney law firm specializing in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development, with his law license becoming inactive in 2002.

Obama was a founding member of the board of directors of Public Allies in 1992, resigning before his wife, Michelle, became the founding executive director of Public Allies Chicago in early 1993.

He served from 1993 to 2002 on the board of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago, which in 1985 had been the first foundation to fund Obama's DCP, and also from 1994 to 2002 on the board of directors of The Joyce Foundation. Obama served on the board of directors of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge from 19952002, as founding president and chairman of the board of directors from 19951999.
He also served on the board of directors of the Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and the Lugenia Burns Hope Center.

State legislator, 19972004
US Senate 2004 - present

Basically this character has been in & out of the workforce for ONLY 15 YEARS including being a politician 11 of those 15 years!

How is this a resume for success?

I see "NOT READY" written all over this.

I think it is so distasteful for you to do PR on something that Plain has been found guilty of!

Bumper sticker? In the big apple maybe, but not in the "beat you to death with the bible" belt: Parking lot owner Tim Henderson, who is supporting Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., for president, said the two signs posted in his lot ban parking by supporters of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., WFMY-TV, Greensboro, N.C., reported Thursday.

"I don't know how many ways you can interpret it. If you're an Obama supporter, you've got an Obama sticker on your car, you're not welcome to park here," Henderson said. Freedom?

How about the guy in Florida that is banning people with an Obama sticker, from parking in his parking lot? We have the constitional right to vote, and to support whomever we like in this country. That is our constitional right! That issue can go to the Supreme Court, and it's a freedom of speech issue also. The guy needs to be sued.

Well, he's scum. But if it's private property I'm not sure he's not within his rights. Like a private club. I'm not sure if a parking lot fits into that or not.

But...all in all...he's a jerk and has to live with being a jerk. Probably not too much fun. AND...he'll have to live with 8 years of President Obama. That ought to make him smile!

How dare any far left lunatic nonsense be limited in a BLUE STATE? Blue States are defined by having the WORST Public Schools in America. Calif. is rated 47th. Blue States wouldn't be Blue States if the citizens had any pride, character of integrity!

X-Republican my ass stop reading your off the press Obama mailed to you talking points--take a hike bud

An enemy at the gates is less formidable,for he is known and carries his banner openly. A nation can survive its fools,and even the ambitious.

But,it cannot survive treason within,the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely,his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys,heard in the very halls of government itself.

"For the traitor appears not as a traitor he speaks in accents familiar to his victims,and he wears their face and their arguments,he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of the nation,he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Socialism,Marxism,Islam,Bracka Hussein Obama Jr-William Ayers-Rev Wright,Acorn,Muslim leaders,PLO,campgain money from Middle Eastern countries,complete denial of his Muslim background including not using his middle name Hussein,this is JUST THE TIP OF THE Bracka Hussein Obama JR iceberg.

It is time to set up for a TRANSITION! The electorate will justify the end results!

I may need to schedule a trip to Alaska and go door to door explaining to the people that Sarah did not mean to abuse her power and take them for granted. I will welcome them with open arms to the DEMOCRATIC PARTY! Or I can just let the people take actions in their own hands and vote for Obama-Biden 08

I officially extend the invitation to you and your friends to join in on helping our nation get back to the days of GLORY!

As an ex-republican I too have been decieved and I feel hurt how the REPUBLICAN PARTY along with this new of abusive power by Palin have caused disappointment!

You may want to make a side trip to California to apologise for the devastating results of trusting Calif. Democrat pols to be worthy of the Democrat Party. Comrade Pelosi is just the tip of the iceberg in the EVIL EMPIRE that is today's psydo Democrat controlled California.

Arnolds' at the helm. Never had such financial trouble in California when Gray Davis was Governor. Never. Bet they regret being talked into voting for Arnold now. There's always the recall move.....
