What is being done but those posting and supporting this thread is largely contradictory to that message.
    The story is an brain surgeon destroyed Obama and proved OBama to be a loser a vacant liberal halfwit socialsits whos policies are a disaster..

    God Bless the great Dr Ben Carson.

    Great conservative speech about plurality!

    I loved the part about electing lawyers instead of doctors, and scientists. The former care about winning, the latter care about solving problems. He is right and I've been saying it for almost two decades that in order for us to work our way out of this mess, we need to stop electing lawyers to the federal government! His mention of an informed electorate as being pivitol to a successful government was not lost on me. 200 years ago a 6th grader was smarter than a 3rd year college student today, dug deep when he quipped that little nugget.

    The truth is that both sides have cared more about winning votes that everything else was and has become secondary. It IS the fundamental problem, and eventual downfall of this American idea, OR any idea where the people rule themselves.

    IMO lawyers should be unelectible as they are officers of the Court.

    That means they serve the Judicial Branch of Government.

    Serving in the Legislative branch is a clear conflict of interest as anyone can clearly see when they leave Congress and then go to work at law firms lobbying their former members or "interpreting" legislation they created.

    Before a lawyer can run for office he should have to renounce his law licence and be banned from doing ANY work with Congress for 10 years after leaving office.

    Considering his absolute denial of evolution and implicit belief that those who do not believe in creationism are not ethical, I would not trust his opinions on reforming healthcare and the tax code.

    Radical stuff I say.

    That's it? That's all you took from that speech? Listen Joe, while I agree that at least in the Senate that bi partisanship is an important factor in hashing out the fights that need to take place in the House, in order to pass legislation that represents all of us, that certainly doesn't mean, that blanket agreement with the POTUS, or his policies is what constitutes that bi partisanship.

    j-mac you sound exactly like one of the ideologues that Dr. Carson mentioned in his great speech. Did you ever think of putting the USA 1st and your party 2nd?
    Oh please. Give me a break...Sad and transparent tactic of those losing, is to attempt to get the opposition to give up when kicking their arse.

    Although the irony of a European telling me to put country ahead of party is not lost....I've lived in Germany, and saw how Europeans place party in their thinking....mmmmmmk?

    If you think that was good, you should have seen the goings-on at a $10,000 plate re-election function for Obama in San Francisco in about April 2011. After the dinner, by prior planning unknown to the Prez, a bunch of his well heeled supporters put on a challenge to the Prez regarding Bradley Manning's torture.

    As the nicely dressed ladies and gents asked really really embarassing questions of Obama, he was very very uncomfortable. Almost turned completely white, he was so uncomfortable. He lost control, and though definitely amiable, members of the audience broke out into a little song asking something like "where is our change" and held up signs saying "Free Bradley Manning." The Prez would have given his left nut to be gone from that room. It was absolutely priceless to watch.

    About 10 days later we were presented the Legend of Abbottabad.

    I can imagine...But that is what this President does pretty well, right? When the heat gets unbearable, he deflects, and distracts.
