    Only problem with that is it's factually incorrect. And most of the time people who say that kind of thing are either being deliberately untruthful or are extremely ignorant as to the actual meanings of those terms.
    I would tend to agree with this. The only thing he has shown a deep conviction in is getting reelected!

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm?

    this right here hit the nail on the head. i find it funny how 99% of americans scream and yell that taxing the rich at a higher rate is "tax warfare" while warren buffets secratary is paying a higher tax rate than he his, while making probably 5,000 times less than he is, and they're still saying that the middle class should pay higher taxes, and some are even proposing that corporations should pay none?

    what kind of logic is that? the gop knows no boundaries is trying to revive this dying country. we're sitting on our last breath of fresh air at the moment, and if anything changes in 2012, i'm just going to have no faith in this country anymore.

    How much time did he spend with his socialist mother. Another month? And what about Frank? Who is Frank?

    I started a business in the mid-90s. It failed. I put in lots of my money and even more from other people with money. I love to hear about how successful people started their businesses.

    And after Bill Ayers wrote Dreams From My Father...what are we to think?

    To which she responded, "I said, I know plenty--I'm from Chicago, a conservative blogger, and I'll post this."

    I bet his heart skipped a beat on that one.

    But he didn't scowl, and didn't run off as he has been known to do. Instead, unprompted, he blurted out: "I wrote ‘Dreams From My Father... Michelle asked me to." Then he added "And if you can prove it we can split the royalties."

    Anne responded, "Stop pulling my leg!"

    But he repeated insistently, "I wrote it, the wording was similar [to Ayers' other writing.]"

    Anne responded, "I believe you probably heavily edited it."

    Ayers stated firmly, "I wrote it."

    Anne ended the conversation by saying "why would I believe you? You're a liar."

    Good for her. But we are left to wonder. Despite her parting shot, Anne was convinced Ayers was in earnest. He was making a public statement. He wanted this news out there.

    I haven't seen any evidence that his mother was a socialist. All of the evidence points to the fact that she spent much of her professional life studying microfinance and other means of fostering capitalist enterprises in developing nations.

    Yeah, and I heard a guy say that the moon was made of green cheese, too. And the Apollo missions were fake -- filmed in Hollywood. And Obama was born in Kenya!!
