Xenophobia has long been used by the right as their major political tool for anything they wanted to scare the public away from.

In the 30s it was blacks, in the 40s it was Nazis and blacks, in the 50s it was communists and blacks, in the 60s it was hippies and blacks, in the 70s it was women, communists and blacks and education, in the 80s it was taxes, guns,liberals and blacks and education and unions.
In the 90s it was hispanics and guns and taxes and rights and marxists and flag burners and our own government and unions and gays and abortions.

Today the list of Xenophobic Right is so long that it would crash this web site.
"Attack" does not do the Grid Lock Right justice.
That is Xenophobic Melt Down.

So, let me get this straight. The Grand Old Party is criticizing Obama for somewhat "privatizing" space travel to the space station. Boy, this party is more mixed up than a snake in a spin dry cycle.

isn't it interesting that the two loudest republicans, those fiscal conservatives who are all for smaller gov't mind you, that squawked the loudest about this were Baily and Hutchinson, both from states that's industries rely heavily on nasa...did someone mention to them that nasa is a gov't agency, maybe if they put its funding under the health care bill they would be for cutting it then?

Haven't the Republicans been whining for the past 2 years that Democrats need to stop referring back to the Bush presidency?

WOW, how long did it take you to find a new word to project your Marxist racist, KKK Nazi left unto the right fool. 80% of Americans are having buyer remorse with Barry Hussein Osama big ears bin lying.

“We are days away from transforming” the greatest country in the world to a third world back water Marxist fascist state with Osama bin lying as the regime dictator and Nancy Puke and Dirty Harry as the leaders of the Gestapo and the SS brown shirts with SEIU and IBEW thugs.

Post your white house George Soros talking points and bring race and civil rights to the front and we all know that it is you that wish to take our rights away! Net neutrality for one, cap and tax, Obama deathcare, and so many others to enslave us. It is your slave trader Marxist master that won’t help his brother living in a dirt floor hut and wants us all but him and his elite Marxist progressive cop killing and Pentagon bombing radicals like Bill Ayers and the kings of race and hate Jeremiah Wright that will live as kings while we are poor and living in dirt floor huts under the over pass.

You need to wake up as November is a short time away and your racists are only making Americans madder as Obama bin laden polls and the DNC show now in the bottom of the tollit bowl where you all belong as aborted after birth of the Barney Frankless mole hole.

Obama wants us to land on a rock and explode like he is doing to our economy and rights by bashing the Constitution. This is right. Oh so make it private so he can take it over like every other aspect of the free world. Hasn’t he done enough take over’s? No he need to fill his ego which is between his big ears and nota thing in between which keeps falling out from stupidity like you.
