In areas such as mortgages, voter identification and immigration enforcement, the presidential candidates differ over how to use laws that guarantee equality and how far the Justice Department's civil rights division, which exerts strong influence on issues of race and ethnicity, should go to ensure all Americans are treated fairly.
Oh stop blubbering about civil rights already. The discrimination you talk about is trumped up in your imagination so you can have a platform to run on. The left can be very creative in their skulldugarie.
<quoted text> Comments 9-10-11-12 is a list of what Obama accomplished so far. I know you didn't look at it nor will you admit that out of all those accomplishments that many were actually good for the USA. Can you say, "DENIAL".
Can you say expensive new programs that cater to special interests but provide no actual benefits? Repealing “don’t ask don’t tell” was a good thing that will not cost the taxpayers and actually corrects an injustice but the rest of the stuff on the list carries a small to nonexistent cost to benefit ratio and many of those things good or bad would have happened without Obama.
