Aw, come on now, you little GOP Nazi.
Just admit you're a hypocritical little twit whose chief strategy is to scream "commie" and blame Obama for the recession your side started.
GOP trickle-down economics... another discredited theory.
Gee. I have never been so thoroughly and accurately analyzed psychologically by a first grader. I'm telling your teacher!

"Bitch-slapped evil Allah out of Iraq"? What's that supposed to mean?

Here's a clue. You don't lie the American people into an unnecessary war, which is what Bush and Cheney did.

That conflict did not serve our national interests and it was ruinously expensive.

I am never renting or buying another movie again. Thanks, I knew the Woods were extremely liberal and have heard that anybody who's openly Republican is considered less qualified for work there. That might explain the recent poor selection and subject matter from Hollywood. I noticed there's been very little in the way of original stories in movies lately, i.e., remakes of old movies. Very boring stuff.

Where was Congress?

Being lied to by Bush and Cheney.

You know... the "aluminum centrifuge tubes", "unmanned fleets of aerial vehicles", "bio-weapons labs", "smoking mushroom clouds", attempted uranium purchase from Nigeria"...

You remember those whoppers, don't you?

So don't blame Congress, which had no independent means of verification, for acting on those mistruths.

If you work in Hollywood/Music/Media and are not a pro-gay, Socialist, Marxist and a condescending SOB Liberal loudmouth, you won't have a job longer than your first paycheck.

There are a lot of silent conservatives in those industries. They have mouths to feed.

I could keep repeating the same facts, that Bush was in office when the financial markets were crashing and 500,000 jobs were being lost each month.

But what's the point? I'm dealing with a GOP cretin who when faced with the facts resorts to sarcasm and denials.

In other words, a mentality divorced from the real world.

Shouldn't we let other people think for us once in awhile?
The man's been campaigning ever since his first "triumph"/purchase of the presidency.(Thanks to Oprah)

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/17/us/politics...

As usual, he continues to display the odd hypocrisy of his in mocking Rush about alternative energy sources. One of Obama's promises in his first campaign was that he would commit millions of dollars over the next 11 years to "developing new, renewable, alternative energy sources". Very odd, considering that even if he was re-elected he would only have a total of 8 years to commit to that promise. I have to wonder if he thinks he'll make himself king and declare office limits therefore irrelevant. The man has this strange idea that the voters have forgotten about all of his broken promises/lies, i.e., "...no more corporate welfare..." and, "...no more offshore drilling...".

Aren't you supposed to be sleeping in the commode right about now? Does your mother know that you crawled back out?

Avoiding any discussion about the mess the Kenyan Snake has made will not work, little person. Blaming Bush is passe', dood. We've all been there, heard that. You sound like you live on TV reruns.

Living in the past is a sickness. Repeating tired old hackneyed Liberal pablum shouldn't be a career move for you, dood. Try something forward - like maybe today? Tomorrow morning?

Give it a try. I know you can reach 2nd grade. You are the Little Train That Could.

Elected the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, Obama was offered a book contract, but the intellectual journey he planned to recount became instead this poignant, probing memoir of an unusual life. Born in 1961 to a white American woman and a black Kenyan student, Obama was reared in Hawaii by his mother and her parents, his father having left for further study and a return home to Africa. So Obama's not-unhappy youth is nevertheless a lonely voyage to racial identity, tensions in school, struggling with black literature?with one month-long visit when he was 10 from his commanding father. After college, Obama became a community organizer in Chicago. He slowly found place and purpose among folks of similar hue but different memory, winning enough small victories to commit himself to the work?he's now a civil rights lawyer there. Before going to law school, he finally visited Kenya; with his father dead, he still confronted obligation and loss, and found wellsprings of love and attachment. Obama leaves some lingering questions?his mother is virtually absent?but still has written a resonant book. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
From Booklist
Obama argues with himself on almost every page of this lively autobiographical conversation. He gets you to agree with him, and then he brings in a counternarrative that seems just as convincing. Son of a white American mother and of a black Kenyan father whom he never knew, Obama grew up mainly in Hawaii. After college, he worked for three years as a community organizer on Chicago's South Side. Then, finally, he went to Kenya, to find the world of his dead father, his "authentic" self. Will the truth set you free, Obama asks? Or will it disappoint? Both, it seems. His search for himself as a black American is rooted in the particulars of his daily life; it also reads like a wry commentary about all of us. He dismisses stereotypes of the "tragic mulatto" and then shows how much we are all caug
ht between messy contradictions and disparate communities. He discovers that Kenya has 400 different tribes, each of them with stereotypes of the others. Obama is candid about racism and poverty and corruption, in Chicago and in Kenya. Yet he does find community and authenticity, not in any romantic cliche{‚}, but with "honest, decent men and women who have attainable ambitions and the determination to see them through." Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
See all Editorial Reviews U.S. Senate hopeful Barack Obama has an inspiring story to share, and yet he doesn't simply rest on his laurels in this critical evaluation of his life and in his continuing search for himself as a black American. He wrote "Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance" almost ten years ago, but his stock has obviously surged since his star-making speech at the Democratic National Convention last month, perhaps to the chagrin of Hillary Clinton...unless she is dreaming of a Clinton-Obama ticket in 2008! Growing up mulatto in Hawaii and Indonesia, Obama discusses trying to come to grips with his racial identity through a period of rebellion that included drug use, becoming a community activist in Chicago and traveling to Kenya to understand his father's past. It is in Kenya where he discovers a nation with forty different tribes, each of them saddled with stereotypes of the others. It is also in Kenya where he recognizes the dichotomy that has been his lifelong existence between the graves of his father and his grandfather. His description of this defining moment is worthy of a passage in Alex Haley's "Roots".
Obama is also candid about racism, poverty and corruption in Chicago, and he pulls no punches in his account of this period. Because the book stops in 1995, it does not get
