I see that yes you are. you attack everyone who tells the truth about the halfbreed bastard Obama because of your misguided perception that some how he is black. Obama in not black since black is a color and not a race of humans. Obama was the product of an extra marital affair with a minor. That constitutes statutory rape.
These are all facts and are in no way meant to hurt or be detrimental to Obama or anyone else of biracial parentage. You can try and hide you racism by forcing other to agree with you and use your misguided terminology it will not change or alter the facts. Obama is half Negro and half Caucasian. The product of a rape of a minor by a Negro male.
You, good sir, are full of shit.

Wake up and smell the roses. The word retard is a cut meant to hurt. Halfbreed and bastard are truisms. They describe a fact of being. Obama is a halfbreed since his is half Caucasian and half Negro. He can't be half African since he has never claimed to have lived in Africa. Not only that but there are a lot of Caucasians who were born, raised and who have died in Africa and are in fact Africans. So African cannot be a descriptive word for a Negro now can it? He is not half white and half black. They are colors and not races. Since his parents were not married at the time of Obama's birth that makes him a bastard. or a product of an illicit affair.
Now only a true racist would have a problem with this terminology.

Retarded is a cut, meant to hurt only because of political correctness. Progressives are always changing the meaning of words to suit an agenda of one variety or another.

Gladly. Your description of President Obama as a half-breed and a bastard is gratuitous at best, cruel and hateful at worst. No one needs a detailed literal decription of Obama's racial and parental background. The motives for your rambling account are suspicious to say the least.

I would add that you are a bastard, in the more colloquial sense.

Great idea! Who cares who starves or dies! So what if it makes us more vulnerable to terrorist attacks? Better yet, let's lay off the air traffic controllers, so our planes can ricochet off one another and jump to a conclusion!

You liberals are lying fools. Odumbo isn't cutting funds, just not spending as much as he wanted to waste. It is all slight-of-hand tricks that they all do in DC. But this POS in the white house is the biggest liar there has ever been. Personally, I'd like to see the whole damn thing shut down and crash, so we can start all over again without all the liberal(progressive)BS. You either work for a living, or die unless you are handy-capped.

See, this is how it's done. Just repeat what Fox News says and pretend it is the truth. No thinking required. And even better, they put everything in sound bites so it is easy to remember. Just say the word, "Bengahzi" and you will sound so sophisticated. And don't forget to lump all your opponents into one category. If you don't believe everything Fox News says, you are the enemy, with no rights in the USA. In fact the only hard part is forgetting what they said yesterday so you can believe the new lies today. But then you may be old enough that this is not a problem. This is why those with early stage Alzheimer's are more likely to buy this nonsense.
Please tell us what FOX news has lied about.

I have a better idea. Cut from the top starting with the dumbass in chief, then the pay to the WH government like massive pensions and vacations. Should be a easy 85 billion there.

It's kind of funny, isn't it? We're talking about a 2.4% cut, and all the propaganda ministers-I mean, politicians are trying to convince us that the government is going to come to a screeching halt. The fear mongering would be hilarious if so many people weren't falling for it.
Then there's the blame game...R's and D's trying to pin this on one another.
I hope it goes through so that the sheeple start to see just how easy it is to fool some of the people all of the time. I, for one, am sick to death of Washington's elite class talking down to us citizens as though we are all four year olds. Millions of households across the country have had to cut spending and tighten their belts. It's high time Washington does the same and adjusts their upcoming budget.

Edited Video Made McCain Look Insensitive to Aurora Victim’s Mom
Monday, 25 Feb 2013 06:53 PM
By Bill Hoffmann
Share:

inShare Video of Sen. John McCain speaking to the mother of an Aurora shooting victim was edited in a way that made him appear to be insensitive to the tragedy, the Arizona lawmaker’s office charges.

“[The video] had been selectively edited by a TV station in Phoenix to make McCain look insensitive to her,” Brian Rogers, the veteran senator’s Communications Director, told Newsmax.

“And then [MSNBC’s] Rachel Maddow and several other liberal outlets attacked McCain for it.”

The controversy surrounds a news clip that first appeared on Phoenix television station KTVK, showing McCain at a recent town hall meeting.

In the video, McCain is seen in conversation with Caren Teves, whose 24-year-old son Alex was shot dead in the Aurora movie theater massacre last year.

Speaking about assault weapons in the video, Teves tells McCain,“These weapons don’t belong on our streets.”

The video shows McCain responding,“I can tell you right now you need some straight talk. That assault weapons’ ban will not pass the congress of the United States.”

But it turns out his response was heavily edited and excluded his heartfelt condolences to Teves.

In the longer video, McCain tells the grieving mom,“First of all, can I say thank you and God bless ... Our hearts and our prayers go out to you and your family.

“I just had a town hall meeting yesterday in Tucson and the people who were affected by the terrible, tragic shooting there,” McCain continues.

“I met with [retired astronaut] Mark Kelly and [his wife, former Arizona Rep.] Gabby Giffords in my office last week on this issue — as you know they are becoming, understandably, great advocates on this issue, and I will continue that conversation.

“I can tell you right now — you need some straight talk — that assault weapons ban will not pass the Congress of the United States. It won’t. Now I owe it to you to give you my opinion because the majority of the members of Congress don’t support it ... All I can tell you is ... I will continue to work with the bipartisan group on both sides of the aisle representing all of America, not just California, and we will try to come up with ways to prevent this from happening again ...

“I appreciate your opinion. I promise you that you have my commitment to work with every member of Congress no matter where they are in the political arena to try and prevent this from happening again.”

When Maddow ran a piece on the meeting, she aired the heavily-edited KTVK segment.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Maddow admitted,“Obviously there was an edit between the end of the woman’s question and the part where John McCain sneers the straight talk line at her. So maybe that edit was cut in a way that’s not fair to John McCain.

“Maybe he wasn’t in real time so insensitive and abrasive, to a woman who probably deserves some sensitivity when she is talked to about these matters.”

But Rogers said there was no excuse for MSNBC and others to go with the edited version.

“The full video was available when Maddow and [the others] did their stories,” Rogers told Newsmax.

“They were apparently just too lazy to check for it, or they didn’t want the context. Really outrageous.”

Perhaps you have been hidden away in your trailer but it is considered low and uncouth to use those words. Just like using "retard" and other names is considered "old", of small stature and ignorant.
Perhaps that is the stature you are trying to attain ....

Oh, that's right. I forgot we are supposed to forget everything bush did, and from now on we call bush liberal. The disaster was simply because he wasn't as far right wing as the nation needed him to be. bush was a liberal. Why don't these liberals realize that all they need to do is watch Fox News? Then they won't have to go to the trouble of thinking. They can simply spew the right wing rhetoric and keep their minds closed to everything going on. And when they lose their jobs, all their rights, everything they ever worked for, freedoms, blame it on the democrats.
I suggest we stop looking for scapegoats, talk about the problem and come up with a solution. Obama is supposed to be the leader of the nation and he is failing at leadership 101. The congressional leaders of both parties are supposed to be leaders they are all failing. And people like you- always willing to blame and point fingers but not face realty-are part of the problem. Regardless of how we got $16 Trillion in debt the fact is that is where we are. Neither spending cuts nor raising taxes will solve the problem it needs to be both combined with a re-evaluation of the whole government economic and tax policy. I have not heard ONE politician say that- have you?

Over the weekend, the New York Times reported that donating $500,000 to the group Organizing for Action will get one quarterly meetings with President Barack Obama. "Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House," reported the Times.

It is apparent you do not comprehend what you read. I did not say I watch Fox News - I said I watched MEET THE PRESS WITH DAVID GREGORY which is a Dem commentator. Bengahzi and Fast and Furious are really eating at you. You know its a cover up but don't want to admit it.
LOL, you repeat all Fox News talking points but don't watch them? Even Carl Rove considered Meet the Press as the best way to get out republican talking points because they are clearly a right wing propaganda source. Calling Gregory a dem is like calling Cheney a dem. As far as Bengahzi a cover up, with maybe 4 people dead, is nothing compared to the 9/11 cover up with thousands dead on our own land, with no investigation at all. Nothing was ever done. No one went to jail. Yes, bush gained billions of dollars and tons of political capital to start wars against anyone he wanted, but the USA got hurt.

Remember, I am not an Obama supporter. I won't support any politician nor political party who supports the Pat Act to remove all our freedoms.
