I beg to differ, race has everything to do with it. People said it and so did the Republican hierarchy when they flat out said their mission was to make him a one term Pres.(I recall Mitch McConnell was one of them)Look how close the election was.
Quinn as you know both parties want there opposition to have only one term. In the first two years they didn't need one Republican vote to pass their agenda. Obama was so radical even Democrats voted against him. Just like Obama's gun grab today it will not have full Democrat support

I am not in favor earned income tax credits or the taxes people pay for each kid they have. You have 'em pay for 'em yourself.
My new account told me that the reason Mitt paid less in taxes had to do with his not having to claim speaking engagement fees so apparently when they do that it's not considered "income".
Corporations and people should pay taxes. The religious organizations and non profits should also pay taxes.....they are currently exempt from real estate taxes at least in IL.
I agree on the churches paying taxes :) See there are some things we agree on

You misunderstand. I'm not sticking up for Jr nor do I think the media shouldn't a be all over it. My point is that irrespective of political affiliation media coverage is media coverage. The conservatives pick on the liberals as much s the reverse.
Jr may be big media in Chicago but not so much on the national media

Up until this year it passed with bipartisan support with no debate. It's about domestic violence. How can that fall on one party line versus the other now? There was never an issue for what, 17 years sit was first enacted? As far as I'm aware there are no unfunded mandates, no taxes, no increase in government spending. It is about protecting victims of abuse in domestic relationships. I think that includes LGBT relationships but so what? It's not about Obama ---- he didn't push the bill it was already there ---- it's not about 'freebies' to anyone or additional taxes to anyone, it's because social conservatives this time it's up for renewal have an agenda which does not include protecting people in relationships they do not condone. It makes no political or ethical sense to oppose the bill's renewal.
I don't have much knowledge on the issue. I would suspect a poison pill in there

Dear Grace. Boomer and I send our condolences to you and her family. May she rest in peace. I am sure she loved having you as a dear friend. We are also lucky to have you here in the kitchen Dear Grace. Thank you for your beautiful poetry.

<quoted text>Franko race has very little to do with anything. After all he won twice. The Republican controlled house sends bills to the senate and the Democrat controlled Senate won't even bring them up for a vote. Obama had both houses for the first two years and he still couldn't get anything done. Obama doesn't govern but campaigns all the time.
Hmmmm .. I spent a year regularily in the African American forum ... I would say racism is alive and well in the USA and I do believe there is at least some influence based on that. Hillary would have received opposition based on her gender.

I think the only reason the democrats won the last two elections is because the Rebublicans had even worse candidates to offer.

Grace...
My condolences concerning the loss of your friend.. Sometimes there simply are not any words that will help.. and I'm sure that's the case here but I will share with you the only words I know helped me...

Don't dwell on the one moment when her life ended.. Rather remember all the wonderful days that you shared during her life...
May she rest in Peace...

Condescension is rather unbecoming Denny and the way you prefaced that is rather condescending. I'm well aware that each party wants in. Having said that, you seem to be missing my & Tony's points. The last 6 years have not been about the GOP wanting in, they have been filled with vile, racist, personal attacks that have gone far beyond the political decorum of even the Bush I & Bush II eras.

Apparently you've not been listening to the same Republican speeches I have. I'm not talking about media or pundits, I'm talking I'm talking card carrying elected officials in the Republican Party. I'm talking racist remarks on mor than one occasion.

Hi Lady Eleanor...
I gave up trying to find the post where you replied to mine.. So I'll just say I hope that your day was a good one and I hope that your night has been peaceful and that all of your dreams have been sweet..
My daffodils are about 4 inches tall now so it won't be long before they will come into bloom..
All of my miniature roses made it through the winter and are starting to show new leaves sprouting.. I wintered them on the porch.. but as soon as spring really arrives I plan on planting them in the yard...
I'm going to make a flower design in geode rock around the iris bed and plant them there.. I think it'll be pretty with the tall irises in the center and all of the miniature roses planted in flower petals... My Dianthus made it through the winter too bless their little flower hearts they don't know they are supposed to be annuals...
:o)
I can't wait to get back out there and start gardening again.. I do love it... and I really miss it when I can't...
Sending you all of my best wishes for Peace, Love, Health and Happiness...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Hope everyone's week started out well.... my thoughts go out to Grace.

I realize he's local. I think it hit the AP only because of dad. Sr was going to come to Chicago to meet with Obama over the gun violence here, but bowed out and stayed in DC for Jr's hearings.

Dad is likely more well known.
