gee, isn't that what I just said? except, u seem to think that in the old, old days the people had a choice! no, the Party selected or drafted a candidate THEY wanted at their convetions. some potential wannabes might solicit support but if they were not the annointed Party favorite, too bad.
did u never watch ANY of the OLD political movies and follow the political manuevering going on? are u that under-educated?
obviously, if the P.S./D MSM doesn't endorse it, u don't absorb it!
and, for the last friggin' time, Romney wrote off that 47% as VOTERS, NOT CITIZENS. the MSM reported as he was dissing the people and not the voters. what is soooo hard to understand about politics?
do you honestly, without actually knowing the man, any person, PERSONALLY, that Romney, or any body, does not care as you say he doesn't? how shallow, so UN-informed, SO biased, SO STOOPID can such a person be?

did u miss Obama AND Biden just tell everybody that HIS plan is to RAISE every, EVERY tax payers' income taxes? Obama wants Clinton-era tax rates and Biden just said THEY would raise an extra TRILLION in taxes. they can't do THAT ($1T) without ACROSS THE BOARD tax increases.
if u believe otherwise, you ARE a fool.
Harding STOPPED the post WWI recession by doing exactly cutting, cutting, cutting the FG budget and REDUCING the new F.I.T.! Harding cut the Fed budget by about 25% for three straight years! the result?
we call the period that followed the ROARING Twenties.
Kennedy cut taxes, too. as did Reagan. the growth periods afterwards are historical FACTS.
simple math says we cannot RAISE our way out of this mess. cuts are the answer, period. and EVERYBODY, including the disadvantaged, MUST suffer... not just the tax payers pay more.$100B in new revenues will NOT offset $1T in deficts!!
"did u miss Obama AND Biden just tell everybody that HIS plan is to RAISE every, EVERY tax payers' income taxes?"

I'm callin' bullsh!t on this one...

You got a link to any of that 'cause that's not what I heard them say and I try to pay close attention to this stuff.

What I heard them say is that they want to allow the Bush tax cuts for higher income earners to expire.

That would not change the tax rate for most Americans and it is not technically a tax hike because the cut was supposed to be temporary to start with.

Republicans are taking a strong debate performance by Mitt Romney into the weekend, trying to contact 2 million voters in a get-out-the-vote effort they're calling "Super Saturday."

Among the highlights of the all-day effort was Romney's wife, Ann, making a surprise visit to a call center in Orlando, Fla., where she posed for pictures, signed campaigned posters and made calls to prospective voters.

"We appreciate all the work you're doing, all the help you're giving us," said Romney, who brought pizzas for the volunteers making calls. "Are you getting a lot of feedback about the debate on the calls?"

This is one of just several Romney/RNC Victory Super Saturdays this election cycle in which volunteers make calls and campaign on the streets. Republicans said they hope this weekend to make contact with at least 35 million potential voters.

My ill informed 23 year old son said he hates Romney because he wants to ban contraception. I believe it was the great Reagan who said" the problem with liberals is they believe so much that just isn't true", fits here perfectly. Of course I straightened him out. But many of our young are ignorant, naive and misinformed. On the plus side, many probably won't even vote.
So many are spoiled, dumb, inconsiderate adults; they are living proof of poor parenting and over-indulgence.

Stop and think about health care reform now. Isn't it scary to think of these individuals mostly with no conscience working in ANY capacity whatsoever in the health care industry where they will have an impact on your life?

Have you heard about the critical situation re. the contaminated lab and spinal meningitis? My first thought was could this be an act of terrorism? I can't forget that comment Obama made about "all the problems they were going to cause" and then corrected himself saying he meant something else.

But here’s a fact that nobody can deny:

President Bush Signs Secure Fence Act

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. Thanks. Please be seated. I'm pleased that you
all are here to witness the signature of the Secure Fence Act of 2006. This
bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders
more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform.

I want to thank the members of Congress for their work on this important
piece of legislation. I welcome you here to the White House. I'm looking
forward to signing this bill.

President George W. Bush signs H.R. 6061, the Secure Fence Act of 2006, in
the Roosevelt Room Thursday, Oct. 26, 2006. Pictured with the President are,

joining us today. I thank the Deputy Secretary, Michael Jackson, of the
Department of Homeland Security. Rob Portman -- he happens to be the
Director of OMB. I want to thank Ralph Basham, who is the Commissioner of
the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. David Aguilar is the Chief of the
U.S. Border Patrol.

I appreciate the fact that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has joined us,
as well as House Majority Leader John Boehner. I appreciate them coming in
from their respective states as I sign this piece of legislation. I want to
thank Congressman Peter King, who's the Chairman of the Homeland Security
Committee in the House of Representatives. I appreciate you being here,

Ours is a nation of immigrants. We're also a nation of law. Unfortunately,
the United States has not been in complete control of its borders for
decades and, therefore, illegal immigration has been on the rise. We have a
responsibility to address these challenges. We have a responsibility to
enforce our laws. We have a responsibility to secure our borders. We take
this responsibility seriously.

Earlier this year, I addressed the nation from the Oval Office. I laid out
our strategy for immigration reform. Part of that strategy begins with
securing the border. Since I took office we have more than doubled funding
for border security -- from $4.6 billion in 2001 to $10.4 billion this year.
We've increased the number of Border Patrol agents from about 9,000 to more
than 12,000, and by the end of 2008, we will have doubled the number of
Border Patrol agents during my presidency.

We've deployed thousands of National Guard members to assist the Border
Patrol. We've upgraded technology at our borders. We've added
infrastructure, including new fencing and vehicle barriers. We're adding
thousands of new beds in our detention facilities so we can continue working
to end catch and release at our southern border. During the course of my
administration we have apprehended and sent home more 6 million people
entering our country illegally. And I thank the Border Patrol for their hard
work. ...

Obama backs extending Patriot Act provisions
Measures are due to expire at end of year

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration supports extending three key
provisions of the Patriot Act that are due to expire at the end of the year,
the U.S. Justice Department told Congress in a letter made public Tuesday.

Lawmakers and civil rights groups had been pressing the Democratic
administration to say whether it wants to preserve the post-Sept. 11 law's
authority to access business records, as well as monitor so-called "lone
wolf" terrorists and conduct roving wiretaps.

Obama defends votes in favor of Iraq funding
Says he backs troops, not war

By James W. Pindell and Rick Klein, Globe Staff | March 22, 2007

Senator Barack Obama yesterday defended his votes on behalf of funding the
Iraq war, asserting that he has always made clear that he supports funding
for US troops despite his consistent opposition to the war.

"I have been very clear even as a candidate that, once we were in, that we
were going to have some responsibility to make it work as best we could, and
more importantly that our troops had the best resources they needed to get
home safely," Obama, an Illinois Democrat, told reporters in a conference
call. "So I don't think there is any contradiction there."

Joe asks for 6 months of retraining for 'Cattle Guards'!


For those of you who have never traveled to the west, or southwest,cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings,
in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over that area. For some reason the cattle will not step on the "guards," probably because they fear getting their feet caught between the rails.

A few months ago, President Obama received and was reading a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado . The Colorado ranchers
had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the Secretary of the Interior to fire half of the "cattle" guards immediately!Before the Secretary of the Interior could respond and presumably try to straighten President Obama out on the matter, Vice-President Joe Biden, intervened with a request that...before any "cattle" guards were fired, they
be given six months of retraining.

'Times are hard', said Joe Biden,'it's only fair to the cattle guards and their families!'

And these two guys are running our country,

PHOENIX - Congressional Republicans are stepping up pressure on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and asking for an independent investigation into how much he knew about the gun trafficking operation Fast and Furious, and when he learned it.

At a hearing of the House Oversight Committee on May 3, when asked when he first knew about Fast and Furious, Holder replied "a few weeks ago."

New leaked internal Department of Justice memos show Holder's aides provided written memos mentioning the program as far back as July 2010.

Michelle Obama: "For the First Time in My Adult Lifetime, I'm Really Proud of My Country"

Speaking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin today, would-be First Lady Michelle Obama said, "for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback."

Then in Madison, she said, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change."

(Watch the video of this second comment HERE.)


The question is did she forget to tell Obama??

There are a lot of legitimate arguments to be made both pro and con over building this pipeline.
Gee "Jack" could you give the rest of us a list of those poor people that were thrown off their land. LOL!!!
