HEY STUPID! There were witnesses on the ground in Benghazi that said they heard the group that attacked the consulate, Ansar al-Shariah, reference the video. This is the same group that destroyed an Italian consulate because of a perceived insult to the prophet.
No nitwit the producer of the video Nakoula Basseley Nakoula wasn't sent to jail for making the video, he was sent for violating the conditions of his parole.
So where has the President lied nitwit?
You're an idiot Carol!
Good to hear that our CIA guys fooled you. Old Harry told Barack that the trick would never work, but Barack was right in never underestimating the stupidity of the media and the American public. That's why Barry is President and Harry is stuck with shaking down casinos.

<quoted text>Because Republicans don't care. They want more spending cuts for schools , no public-private investment jobs creation programs or tax credit incentive programs for businesses to hire more workers and offer job training , cuts to family planning and health services for poorer , African-American, White, Hispanic , and elderly families,.. Does turning their back on the problems of the poor really the Republican solution?
We've been throwing millions upon millions of dollars at the public school system and the war on poverty for five decades.

All we see in return is progressive liberalism taking us down in keeping up and competing with other countries' test scores because of a piss poor education system and poverty at its highest level since the great depression.

Money doesn't educate. Good teachers and a disciplined classroom educates.

Money doesn't help people who don't want to be helped.

Bush administration payment of columnists
The Bush administration payment of columnists refers to the payment of public funds to right-wing media commentators by several U.S. executive departments under Cabinet officials to promote various policies of U.S. President George W. Bush's administration. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid to at least three commentators to promote Bush administration policies.

Good Morning Homer,
I like this new approach:
WASHINGTON -- The Justice Department will avoid charging certain low-level and nonviolent drug offenders with crimes that carry mandatory minimums, Attorney General Eric Holder will announce Monday. The policy shift will allow certain defendants -- those without ties to large-scale organizations, gangs or cartels -- to avoid what Holder called "draconian mandatory minimum sentences."

Okay dumbass, when you break a bone and you get an X-ray , where do you think the technician got their training? If you get blood drawn where did the person doing it get theirs. At a Community College! If you're in the hospital there's a good chance that the nurse taking care of you at least got her initial degree at a community college.
Community Colleges are useless? Don't tell that to Mike Kittredge who founded Yankee Candle who attended Holyoke Community College and now has a business center named after him there.
No my son doesn't go to a community college he's starting his senior year at a four year college in Washington DC and he also works as a congressional staffer.
Yeah Sweden had a riot. So did Great Britain also in response to a police killing. The US has had them too. Anyone familiar with this country's history would know that we've had some really significant ones going all the way back to the War of 1812.

Demeaning others is a sign of insecurity in order to feel better about yourself.

If you can't win an argument without resorting to name calling, you have no argument and use bully tactics to pretend you do.

HUH? Fox In Talks To Produce NBC’s Hillary Clinton Project
The New York Times is reporting that NBC is in talks with Fox Television Studios to produce their miniseries. Fox has confirmed the report. NBC’s decision to go with Fox would be influenced in part by Fox’s extensive experience with long-form television.
The problem for Priebus and the GOP is that now they would have to exclude Fox News from holding any of their primary debates. After all, if they are going to take it upon themselves to be Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives, then the GOP would be forced to show them the same treatment they show NBC and CNN. And Priebus couldn’t argue that Fox’s entertainment division is separate from their news division because he already rejected that argument.
So now the Republican Party may not be able to have debates on any of the cable news networks. This leaves them with only ABC and CBS. Well, technically, there is also the highest rated national network, Univision, but that doesn’t seem like a good fit for the Hispanic-hating GOP. Perhaps they could work something out with Al-Jazeera America.
http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/...
Hah, LMAO__Univision and Telemundo both enjoy larger viewership than FOX.

Yet the Repubs continue to stall on immigration reform.

You are so right, Harry. Abortion is most definitely a government-funded industry. Just like the unions.

Democrats always benefit from the leeching of others even if it's against their will.

You must be so proud to be the Democratic Senate Majority Leader and co-author of the monstrosity called Obamacare. Another Democratic way of leeching taxpayers.

No one "wooed" the Dixiecrats. By the time Nixon ran for president, the Great Migration of blacks had long since moved to the north and west between 1915 and 1960.
The Democrat "Dixiecrats" ran back to their own party with their tails between their legs with the exception of one when it was clear Goldwater's states rights lost the battle over empowering the federal government.
Reagan also believed the Constitution was designed to prevent a powerful and overreaching federal government by granting more power to the states.
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.
This is the most ridiculous thing you've ever posted. Most of the black population in America lives in the South.

So why don't blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.
Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid-20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.
These are the people for whom African-Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence — and memory — of black voters.
In talking about race, conservatives have all the moral authority of a pimp talking about women's rights. Granted, "their" blacks might disagree.
