Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

From Rolling Stone: "...[our] long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day."
What was your ignorant comment about music again?
"Rolling Stone Magazine features the latest music news, movie reviews, political, economic and pop culture commentary, videos, pictures, and more."

Dumbass Ray. Thinks Rolling Stone Magazine has nothing to do with music. How the f*ck did Ray get so stupid.

You snobs automatically label people who disagree with your agenda as 'stupid' or dumb.' THAT's stupid and dumb.
Skin color does not determine laziness. Indoctrination to the liberal GIVErnment breeds laziness.

Here's what Gunner just said in a post;

So who's labelling people, scumsucker??

Your stupidity is amusing.

You've provided ample evidence of your hatred towards your fellow citizens.
Here's the truth about you hateful scum;
""Robertson's defenders should read his comments again, because their defenses are off-point. If you're defending Robertson, here's what you're defending:
Robertson thinks black Americans were treated just fine in the Jim Crow-era South, and that they were happy there. "I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say,‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues."
Robertson thinks the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor because they didn't believe in Jesus. "All you have to do is look at any society where there is no Jesus. I’ll give you four: Nazis, no Jesus. Look at their record. Uh, Shintos? They started this thing in Pearl Harbor. Any Jesus among them? None. Communists? None. Islamists? Zero. That’s eighty years of ideologies that have popped up where no Jesus was allowed among those four groups. Just look at the records as far as murder goes among those four groups."
Robertson hates gay people. Robertson in 2010: "Women with women, men with men, they committed indecent acts with one another, and they received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions. They’re full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God-haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil."
This last one is key. My inbox is full of "love the sinner, hate the sin" defenses of Robertson's 2013 remarks. But Robertson doesn't love gay people. He thinks they're, well, "full of murder." His views on gays are hateful, inasmuch as they are full of hate.
As a side note, it's remarkable how often these things come as a package. Robertson's sincere doctrinal view about the sinfulness of homosexuality comes packaged with animus toward gays and retrograde views about blacks and non-Christians. It's almost as though social conservatism is primarily fueled by a desire to protect the privileges of what was once a straight, white Christian in-group, rather than by sincere religious convictions.
You might recall that conservatives are currently trying to figure out what to do about the fact that the Republican Party performs quite poorly with the growing share of voters who are not white, straight Christians. They think some of it has to do with economic issues. But then they're scratching their heads, trying to figure out how Mitt Romney lost the Asian American vote 3-to-1 even though, by Republican "maker-vs.-taker" metrics, Asian Americans are disproportionately likely to be "makers."
Non-whites and non-Christians and gays keep getting the sense that, even setting aside policy, conservatives and Republicans just don't care for them. The "Duck Dynasty" episode, with Ted Cruz and others rushing out to defend Robertson's honor, is just another example of why.

And until they change their attitude they will never win another general election. You run for president to lead all Americans not just your base.

Although I think that is why Obama's approval is hovering at 40%, the rightwing will disapprove no matter what he does and the leftwing is seeing him as too centrist/right(extending the Bush tax cuts, extending the Patriot Act, etc.) he has been essentially governing in the middle so he has been losing their support as well.

Though the racism and hatred of the Right will not allow them to admit it, Obama is Bush Lite.

He governs like Bush did, actually deports more illegals and has killed more muslim terrorists than Bush ever did.

He's the guy that got Osama Bin Laden, where Bush failed for years and years!!

But these Teabagger morons only see his skin color and wonder why a white man isn't President.

It's that simple. Actually, they're that simple.

The Heritage Foundation Health Care Plan, 1989:

1 - "All citizens should be guaranteed universal access to affordable health care."

2. "Mandate all households to obtain adequate insurance....each household has the obligation, to the extent it is able, to avoid placing demands on society by protecting itself." "A mandate on households certainly would force those with adequate means to obtain insurance protection, which would end the problem of middle-class "free riders" on society's sense of obligation."

3. "Families would receive direct assistance through the tax code to enable them to fulfill the obligation to obtain insurance."

4. Treat all health care benefits provided by employers as taxable income to the employee.

5. Rates for Families with a very long history of health problems, would be subsidized by the government....the cost of protecting the high-risk group is shouldered equally by all insured families.

6. Increase deductibles for Medicare to offset the extra costs for those on Medicaid.

7. The federal government should encourage households to consider nursing home care insurance to be as normal and prudent a purchase as life insurance.

Here's Emaam, proving his stupidity anew.

We just had one of your asshat buddies here stating that Robertson merely quoted scripture.

So, little asshat, show us where in scripture it's written;

""“It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man’s anus," Robertson told GQ. "That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine," he later added.“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”"

Or this

""I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say,‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues."

Or, you can be honest and admit that it's you losers that defended this scumbag hater of his fellow citizens.

Yes, he had the right to say what he did.

That makes it no less reprehensible.

So Phil Robertson said all blacks were happy before Civil Rights Legislation.

No singing the blues, he said.

A complete fallacy based on the fact that 'The Blues' is a distinctly American form of music created by blacks brought to America as slaves;

""No specific year can be cited as the origin of the blues, largely because the style evolved over a long period and existed in approaching its modern form before the term blues was introduced, before the style was thoroughly documented. Ethnomusicologist Gerhard Kubik traces the roots of many of the elements that were to develop into the blues back to the African continent, the "cradle of the blues". One important early mention of something closely resembling the blues comes from 1901, when an archaeologist in Mississippi described the songs of black workers which had lyrical themes and technical elements in common with the blues.""

----------

Blacks started singing the blues as soon as they were taken off the slave ships in Charleston Harbor.

Proves that Phil and you idiots who defend him know nothing about the suffering of blacks during and after slavery. Right to this day.

If schools were not government run then there wouldn't be a problem with prayer in schools that choose to do so. You pinheads and your libtard logic will be the downfall of this country by bringing Shari'a into our court system under freedom of religion. They don't want freedom of or from religion. They want world wide Shari'a for everyone. Then everyone will be equal. Equally miserable. Except for the LBGT community. They will be dead or hiding. Be careful what you wish for.
you can't have prayer in public schools. and don't expect public schools to disappear anytime soon.....

there's a very good reason that not everyone sends their child to private school that's run by a religious organization. not everyone wants their child to be indoctrinated in religion, or not, by anyone but themselves.

btw...Sharia law? really? when?
no wonder FOX can't find any new viewers.

Business Groups To Curb Uber-Conservatives:'No Fools On Our Ticket'

Business groups are willing to spend big bucks to diminish the influence of the most activist conservatives and win a Republican majority in the Senate in 2014 with more centrist GOP candidates.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans to aggressively shore up the campaigns of business-friendly establishment candidates in the new year, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday -- to the tune of at least $50 million.

"Our No. 1 focus is to make sure, when it comes to the Senate, that we have no loser candidates," the Chamber of Commerce's top political strategist, Scott Reed, told the Journal. "That will be our mantra: No fools on our ticket."

The conservative, Karl Rove-backed super PAC American Crossroads is also on board, according to the Journal.

The Chamber of Commerce signaled after the government shutdown that it would take on the activist wing of the party. The business group supported the deal to re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling.
