Democrats could start being honest by admitting the less than 1% of the population Obama now courts is the dedicated army he was talking about before his 2008 election. Who are the radical idiots crapping on police cars and shooting drugs at the Democrat sponsored anti-Wall Street anarchies, except paid homosexuals and atheist Communists?

You tell 'em and WE represent the MAJORITY who only care about SOCIAL ISSUES, like banning gay marriage, abortion, contraception, marijuana, cursing, alcohol, music, and dancing.

We want to replace the old Bible with the Book of Mormon and we want Mormon school prayers. We want family values, like arranged marriages, magic underwear, green jello, and polygamy.

THAT is AMERICA!

Remember: freedom and the constitution came BEFORE the Book of Mormon.

It's time for change, modernization!

Democrats just don't want to talk about the economy.

And the economy will be the deciding fact in this election.

The Democrats cannot talk about the economy. It is worse now then it was when the Won was elected. People aren't stupid. They know they are worse off then they have ever been, and will vote accordingly in November. It won't be close.

"Now that President Obama has completed his "evolution" on same-sex marriage..."

Huh?

His evolution is "complete"?

He was for it, then against it, now he's for it again.

Why is it assumed he's not still 'evolving', and this is just another intermittent step?

When did he previously say he was for it?

Obama is mixed on it too, he was for it before he was against it before he was for it. I guess that is what evolution is.

Absolute BULLSH!T spewed by a BALD FACED LIAR..

More Private sectors jobs today.

Manufacturing averaging 35,000 per month over the last 5 months.
26 months of POSITIVE private sector job growth.
Unemployment down

10 quarters of positive GPD growth...compare to NEGATIVE GPD of OVER 8% in Dubya's last quarter!

All markets up damn near 50% or more.

<sigh>

Our economy is so large and complex that one can always find some indicator that can be spun into a positive.

And because you can find some instances, that makes another's cliams a "lie" and bullshyt?

Run along... adults are talking here.

When he was running for the Illinois State Senate he openly supported gay marriage then when he wanted to run from president he devolved away from it only supporting civil unions and now he figured it would safe to evolve back into supporting gay marriage.

It shows that Obama in nothing but another lying politician who will say anything to get in office. When you evolve you go from one thing gradually to another not back and forth.

The reason he did this is that when he was just a candidate for president he did not have any political capital build up where he could afford to tell the truth.

Obama has done nothing but disclose one of his character flaws by coming out for gay marriage which he has always been for. What he did when running for the nomination was to subscribe his beliefs (at least the ones he professes) as something he does not believe.

It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime
