Good 'ol J. Edgar Hoover, showing us the respect he had for freedom and Constitutional rights.
Bottom line is, most Republicans think like J. Edgar. Their expressed belief in freedom is a facade. In reality, they are fascists at heart who freely use the power of big government to push their agenda.
The current administration has much in common with the fascists who inhabited Germany in the mid 1930's.
Yeah

What really bothers me is people like Oprah saying the disrespect for the office is greater just because Obama is an African-American when Barack Obama has shown no respect to anyone in this country who didn't walk in lockstep with his personal vision and ideology after making it quite clear he considered any and all opposition as a threat instead of the two-party system of which he presides over both and that his opposition was the enemy and the only Americans that mattered were his own party and his own base.

When you're the one being demonized and dismissed as irrelevant and blamed for everything that goes wrong with this administration, people like Oprah shouldn't be all that surprised the respect for him or the office isn't so eagerly returned.

And that it has nothing to do with his being black but everything to do with him being disrespectful to half the country.

GOP Weasel Boy... I relish your flight from the subject at hand.
But you cannot evade the truth. Cointelpro was Republican FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's program of oppressing the civil rights of Americans everywhere.
I see you don't deny it.
And the more you evade with nonsense and dumb jokes, the stronger my point becomes. Everyone here sees you in full flight from the battlefield.
LOL, who gives a sh*t what Hoover did besides you?

Obama's extension Patriot Act was just the tip of his civil rights-violating, unconstitutional power trip.

Your so-called president had a U.S. citizen executed without due process. Your "point" just turned to dust.

Boot that Jefferson Davis from the Oval Office tomorrow morning.
Ironically, Obamacare might be what was needed to bring us together and to bring an end to the polarization that was dividing us to the point of no return.

More people are going to find they're being dropped by employer coverage next year and more democrats are going to jump ship.

Already, young people and Latinos are turning against Obama.

Like I said, the silver lining.

Maybe Oprah figured it was time to pull the dogeared race card from the deck one more time. I think her shame and embarrassment caused by The One's BIG LIE had a lot to do with it.

Since the reich wingers don't believe in compromise, it would appear that way to them... and t-pers.

Besides, t-pers haven't given a rip about anyone other than their own cause. And it would appear they're more interested in disrespecting anyone and everyone who doesn't agree with their needs!

Not quite two weeks ago this thread was filled with proggies mocking the folks losing their insurance policies. Posters like RealDave, Realtime, and USA swearing up and down these people were a figment of the right's imagination - didn't exist - red herrings.

Republicans only had the majority in the House after 2010. They had no majority in either House for four years before that time.

It's up to those who hold the most power to reach across the aisle to include those who represent the other half of the country.

That's the way it's always been done before. Until arrogance and power hunger for a one-party system became more important in 2008.

Obama Continues To Lie About Fascist Obamacare

"Obama acknowledges that his administration is responsible for all the cancellation notices. These old plans are apparently dreadful, what with people getting to decide what coverages they want. The arrogance of Obama’s fascistic socialism is found in the last sentence when he declares government is making “the insurance market better for everyone.” Since when is it the role of government to make the marketplace better?"

Besides, you can't compromise with democrats who don't want your opinion or your input about anything.

Or care if they have your support before passing a major piece of legislation that will affect all Americans - not just pleasing the loyal base - for political gain and glory.

It's becoming annoying and pathetic. Oprah is fading from the limelight and is just as annoying and pathetic as all the rest.

He should have stuck with "FedEx is doing just fine...it's the post office that's having problems."

One of the only truths that has ever come out of his mouth - and he didn't even know what he said.

In 42 of the 50 states, premiums are much higher, some higher than others.

The libs on here probably think that's a red herring too.

The government does not have the ability or the constitutional role to manipulate the nation's health care system and take on something of this magnitude so this president can feel important and historically relevant.

Because that's all that's going on here.
Yeah

Arrogance? You mean like all the filibustering reich wingers have been doing?

Most in history, so only more records can be made.

Thank you reich wingers for putting your wants first!
