Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

We can agree to disagree about the military draft, a disaster that ripped the country apart during the Vietnam era.
If we didn't learn from that, we never will.
we should never have been in Vietnam. In WWII, after the Japanese invade Vietnam, we approached Uncle Ho (who was waging a fight for independence from the French colonial power) We told him that if he helped up fight the Japanese, we would give Vietnam its independence and we would arm him to fight the Japanese.

After the war, we reneged on the deal.

BTW Uncle Ho was a great admirer of George Washington.

as for the Vietnam war draft, the only problem with it was that it was applied unevenly.

there were too many deferments (Cheney had 5 and most of the rest of the Bush II administration also avoided service) or other ways to get out of serving.....such as getting in the Texas Air National Guard.

Unlike WWII, where political ties and money didn't get you out of service.

Do you think we would have stayed in Vietnam as long as we did if the children of our elected officials had an equal chance of going over to fight as some poor kid?

Homer knows full well you are right. The left plays to loyalty of the poor and ignorant to garner their votes, even to the point of ignoring state and federal laws.

Right wing use of the term "the Magic Negro" indicates their major problem.
If Obama was White and Republican they would support him...except for the teabaggers on welfare
The "Magic Negro" thing was not invented by Conservatives.

The Magical Negro is a supporting stock character in American cinema who is portrayed as coming to the aid of a film's white protagonists. These characters, who often possess special insight or mystical powers, have been a long tradition in American fiction.

In March 2007, American critic and LGBTQ activist David Ehrenstein used the title "Obama the 'Magic Negro'" for an editorial he wrote for the Los Angeles Times.

You guys invented the whole thing.

do you think that may be related to the fact that a large percentage of people who live in inner city ghettos don't own a car?
just wondering
A significant percentage of those who own cars do not bother with insurance.

Or with registration or inspection for that matter.

Vallerie Plame was the head/top dog/HNIC of the CIA's Joint Task Force on WMDs in Iraq. What other source of intelligence are you referencing.
Search "Bill Clinton CIA human rights purge" and tell us what you learn.... of course, Democrats want to pretend that never happened and Bill Clinton didn't completely destroy our foreign intelligence capabilities. Bush had to rebuild those capabilities.
I anxiously await your conclusions after you educate yourself on Bill Clinton's human rights purge of the CIA.
It was Vallerie Plame's "yellow cake story", you idiot. In fact, her husband was sent to Africa specifically to investigate that story.
Tell us what intelligence the president had that Vallerie Plame didn't have, dufus.
Plame never verified the yellow cake story. Wilson said there was no evidence. It matched earlier investigations.

The CIA asked Bush to renove the yellow cae story rom fis State of the Union speech in 2003.

Lets review.

The military tried to verify this story but came back saying it was unlikely.

Wilson was sent by the CIA & said it was not true.

The CIA asked Bush to remove the yellow cake story from his 20003 State of the union.

Conclusions:

The CIA never verified the Yellow Cake story.

So, Mr Dumbwaiter how did Bush know about this story??? According to you, Bush only received vetted intel.

Well Golly Geez, I guess this makes you a liar & a dumbass once again.

yes that may be true, but the fact is they are here and they do drive. so let's deal with reality. I'd rather have them get insurance than to drive without it
Galt would prefer to deport them, and lack of a driver's license when stopped for a violation or accident is a good way to sweep them up.

In April 2013, as many as 34,500 Libertarians received food stamps.
Even during the financial crisis in 2008, the figure was 36,000 on average.
The media should tell people it is a shame for Libertarians to live on food stamps.
If the government is tracking food stamps by political affiliation, Patrick may have exposed another abuse of power by the Obama Regime.

Obama is deporting immigrants faster than Bush. Republicans donít think thatís enough.
The GOP is toughening its stance on immigration in its 2012 party platform. But thatís partly in response to Obamaís own hawkish stance on immigration enforcement. In fact, both parties are now pushing different programs with the same goal: to increase enforcement of laws that target illegal immigration on the local level.
As of July, Obama deported 1.4 million illegal immigrants since the beginning of his administration ó thatís 1.5 times more immigrants on average than Bush deported every month, according to official numbers from the Department of Homeland Security*. But thatís only part of Obamaís deportation strategy: The administrationís stated goal is to prioritize the deportation of criminal, dangerous illegal immigrants. And itís promised to make a new program called Secure Communities mandatory by 2013, which would force local law enforcement to share fingerprints of those arrested with the Department of Homeland Security, which has immigration records, through the FBI.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/...
So you are saying Obama just snookered and used minorities to win over there votes in the election..... illegal immigrants, inner city blacks, etc. Publicly he supports illegal immigrants, but in practice he is deporting them left and right. Shrewd, but cruel.

I see your point Homer, it's a good one.

A congressional hearing is not a civil court nor a federal court__to argue that it is is insane.

So, we agree.
Galt supported the war, but not the occupation.
You just said ' Galt supported a rapid strike into Iraq to depose Saddam Hussein and search for weapons', that's not the same as Galt supported the war', you seem conflicted. Make up your damn mind.

Our Government is self serving in all circumstances. You ever witness the IRS ruin someone's life? Or egregious eminent domain cases? Perhaps bankrupting companies with ridiculous EPA regulations? It goes on and on, hand them more power, and more abuse will follow. Although some.....Homer for example....wallow in the abuse. You ever see him wallow? He is quite the wallower.

You can't trust the media & Obama. The propaganda makes it sound like they are mainstream, however there is always an ulterior motive with Democrats. Consider all the Democrat controlled "sanctuary cities". Consider a law that was passed in our Vampire legislature this morning at 5AM to allow illegals to now get valid drivers licenses.

The "honest", "caring" Democrats say it's for safety reasons, but anyone who knows what they are doing, know it's just pandering and a step towards getting more votes.

You can't believe anything a Democrat tells you. They always have an ulterior motive.
