Ask yourself....Am I also a radical anti-colonialist with a chip on my shoulder?
Ask......Who's Frank Marshall Davis? Communist card carrier #47544
....He was Obama's mentor and shaper of Obama's radical, anti-colonialist war on America. Obama's greatest teacher and confidence, Frank Marshall Davis, though now dead, lives on in Obama, his favorite Anti-American pupil.
....Obama's stupid, polygamous, alcoholic, wife beating, Harvard Educated, drunk driving, father was also an anti-colonialist radical. Obama adored him and all of his stupid backwards ideals and intense, internal hate for the West..
.....If Kenya had held on to it's colonialism a bit longer, they would be like Singapore by now. Obama is as crazy as his half-assed father was.
His brother is smarter than he is. His brother would make a much better president.
2016...the movie...it's informative.

barnyard animals have more class...

CHARLOTTE, N.C.— In a rare moment of actual convention drama, Democratic officials reinserted language back into their official platform Wednesday evening that invokes God and affirms the role of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, trying to defuse Republican attacks over the party’s stances.
But the maneuver may have backfired, infuriating delegates who objected to the changes.
The new amendments were introduced by former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and put to a vote by convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, who was forced to call for three voice votes in an effort to pass the changes.
“I, uh, I guess I’ll do that one more time,” Villaraigosa said after a second vote of delegates in the Time Warner Cable Arena resulted equally loud “ayes” and “nos.”
“You've got to rule, and then you've got to let them do what they're gonna do,” a woman standing to his left could be heard saying in a feed carried by C-SPAN.
After a third attempt, Villaraigosa declared that the amendments had passed.

If American are wise enough to dump enough Losercrats in Congress we can resume the hard work needed to fix our Country.
If we don't replace the Hard Left Agenda mad Progressives and the Unioncrats America will never survive.

Another plan?
Why bother?

Obama will just ignore that one, too.

Meanwhile, he'll continue to spend money nobody has. The national debt has grown under Obama from 74% of GDP to 101% of GDP.

That's right. We now owe more than we make in a year.

If we continue down this road, where will we be in 4 years?

Pitiful Jobs numbers released today indicate that ONLY brain dead losers, anarchists, and Occupy Trash would vote for ANY thing that pretends to be a Democrat at election time during the Obama Era.

If those three catagories are the voting majority in America than we don't deserve better than Durban and Obama.

DICK DURBIN! What a JOKE this guy is! He made a FOOL of himself in trying to divert discussion on the democrats failing to INCLUDE GOD and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in the democrat platform.

Compare Obama's 2008 platform and then this 2012 platform. A real eye opener.

Durbin is a fool. A complete fool, so embarrassed he refused comment after the democrats added God and Jerusalem to their platform.

Dick Durbin = another fool from Chicago!

Obama is a very dangerous bet. Damaged goods. Here's why.
The British beat and tortured Obama's grandfather so badly during the Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya that he had physical limitations for the rest of his life. Thus, Obama, as his father did, has a deep seated hatred for

the British, the Israelis, the US and any colonialist country or entity. He considers Israel a Trojan Horse of colonialism in the Middle East. "Israel. Beware Obama."
He wants revenge for his grandfather's brutal injuries and blames colonialism for all of the world's woes. That's why gas is $5 per gallon. We are being punished before he quite possibly destroys us.
More time for change? I don't think so. Obama is a loose cannon. Damaged Goods. Dangerous beyong description.
. I think Romney is a much, much safer bet. Don't you?

If America is to prosper during The Presidents second term we will need to have the co operation of the
last of the moderate Republicans. That could require a gesture from the President maybe replacing the soon to depart Clinton with Lugar?
If America dosen't survive it will be because the majority of the GOP perfer suicide to compromise.
