Not only have present day Democrats become a different party than JFK's Democratic Party but are trying to anger their misguided base just for votes.
I'm thankful no party could fool me like that.
It's deception at the highest level and anyone who falls for it is in need of some serious soul searching.
Starting invisible wars helps no one but those who have something to gain. Not the country.
Here are some prime examples:

So with the help of the Washington Post's Glen Kessler, here's a quick list of seven Democrats who have proved that they have no idea what the Hobby Lobby ruling was about:

7. Pelosi, D-Calif., June 10:“Really, we should be afraid of this court. The five guys who start determining what contraceptions are legal. Let’s not even go there.”

6. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., June 30:“This is deeply troubling because you have organized religions that oppose health care, period. So if you have an employer who is a member of an organized religion and they decide, you know, I wouldn't provide health care to my own family because I object religiously, I'm not going to allow any kind of health-care treatment.”

5. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., June 30:“What they’ve done ... is taken away the religious freedom of their employees. They have to comply with the religious freedom of their employers.”

4. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., July 1:“You know, what I am objecting to is that these bosses should not be able to tell their employees that they cannot use birth control. Motherhood is not a hobby. That is what I am objecting to.”

3. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., July 9:“The U.S. Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision opened the door to unprecedented corporate intrusion into our private lives. Coloradans understand that women should never have to ask their bosses for a permission slip to access common forms of birth control.”

2. Reid, D-Nev., July 8:“The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men. This Hobby Lobby decision is outrageous, and we are going to do something about it”(Justice Clarence Thomas, who ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, is not white).

1. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., July 10:“Before the Hobby Lobby decision, the fight against corporate influence was mainly about making sure real people and their ideas were in charge of elections. But now it is no longer just about a democracy; it is about keeping corporations out of our private lives, out of our bedrooms, and out of our religious decisions.”

The sad thing about these misleading statements is that it’s more likely Democratic lawmakers are purposely being dishonest with the Hobby Lobby ruling than it is that they’re really this ignorant.

<quoted text>Yep, that approach has worked real well for Israel so far__eh?
Israel is their own worst enemy. Their arrogance, their above all others attitude, their sense of entitlement,their ignorance in believing that they can outlast 2.5 billion Muslims. They have been responsible for most of our ills in that part of the world...I say cut them free, they will never learn and will drag us down with them. Their inability to get along with anyone is well documented..I would not sacrifice one American life for those social ingrates... Unless we could work out some kind of a deal to sacrifice our baggers..But then we would have to run them down and force them to fight their own battles, as opposed to other Americans losing their sons and daughters.

<quoted text>Mindless gibberish.
The Republican voters settled on the team of John McCain and Sarah Palin in 2008 and then Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in 2012.
In both elections the bulk of the nations voters along with the electoral college favored Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
Based on what I'm seeing in the Republican party presently__Obama-Biden would easily win again in 2016 if that were possible.
People such as yourself, and most other pretend conservatives posting here have tarnished the GOP.
According to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll, a strong majority of Americans who voted for President Obama in the 2012 election now admit that it was a mistake doing so. The results show that 71 percent of voters wish they never did.

The dissatisfaction over President Obama isn’t just among Republicans. The survey found that 55 percent of Democrats regret voting for the incumbent and 71 percent of independents share the same sentiment.

Remember this photo op? Mission Accomplished?
"Capitalized on 9/11"?? It became the focus of his entire presidency. He takes office in 1/2001 and then has the worst terrorists attack in history on US soil. He had to focus on never allowing this to happen again. What would you have done sweetheart?

Rand Paul has a no nonsense "and I don't give a s--t if you don't like it" approach on just about every issue. Hope he doesn't lose that advantage. Pretty sure he's not as extreme about isolationism as his father - from a few things I've heard him say anyway.

You are a racist. Could you please just stop being a racist?

Any democrat WOULD have won in 2008 - so why didn't a more experienced democrat win?

There was no logical reason why he won again in 2012 except dirty politics, lies and more deception.

The propagandists used all three against Hillary in 2008 just to get her out of the way.

Now she's their new golden child.

It was considered a "historic vote" to many. It wouldn't have mattered to some voters if he said he was the devil himself.
Even prominent black Republicans voted for him against their conscience saying they lived to regret it.
Just like a lot of people who didn't care about anything else except voting for the first black (and half white) president. It was just the wrong man under the skin. And now a lot of people are realizing it too late.
Not sure why Democrats keep reminding us that he won and don't get that. Have you seen the polls since January - even since the end of last year? The "enchantment" has worn off.
Perhaps because he was more 'enchanting' than the alternative!
