    I hope she goes to prison for a looong time.

    Name one " success".

    And you forgot Clarence Thomas. Are you racist or something ?
    Numerous, huh? Wow. Being investigated, huh? Wow! MUST be true then!

    In the meantime, you are absolutely correct to ignore all GOP organized election fraud, including jamming phone lines in NH on election day, handing out bogus fliers with the wrong date of the election on them, etc.

    'Pubs: it's different when we ACTUALLY do it!

    One success: OBL is dead. Oh, right, you guys either don't think that's a success OR it's "the SEALS" did that. Obama really was wrong, and we were wrong, to cheer him as he performed that "I got him!/Mission Accomplished" aircraft carrier landing! Btw, what was the military team that got Hussein? Don't know, huh? Me neither. All attention and praise was heaped on Bush.

    Success: DOW is back at the record level of 14,000. Wait, that isn't Obama's doing, right?

    Succeess: Jobs are being created, not shed. Wait....(fill in here with some convoluted argument)

    Success: America's no longer reviled as we were under Bush and Cheney by our allies. Wait: false! Because I say so!

    Success: The Washington Monthly - The Magazine - Obama’s Top 50 Accomplishments

    Btw, what's up with you folks just SAYIN" stuff and believing it?

    Clarence Thomas???? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I wouldn't be a-braggin' about Clarence Thomas if I were you.

    That guy is really, really weird.

    Facts have a liberal bias.
    No facts, just a desperate perpetuation of a liberal lie.

    You know, its what you guys do.

    the proof of your failure lies in the fact you cannot find any objective sources.

    I can hardly wait for your next link.

    Akin Suggests The Voting Rights Act Of 1965 Should Be Overturned

    Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP’s candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, suggested in an interview that it was time to “look at or overturn” the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Asked directly if seminal federal civil rights legislation that prohibits discriminatory voting proceedures needed to be modified or scrapped, Akin said that states — not the federal government — should set voting rules.

Why is it that you constantly attack people for pointing out bad things that right wingers have done in America, instead of say... hey you know what... you are right, this guy/thing/idea is idiotic and should be changed. Instead you and your fellow bedfellows continue to defend such things till you turn blue in the face.... why is that?
    Abraham Lincoln was a "right winger"???? Orville Faubus? George Wallace?

    It seems clear you don't really understand what right wing and left wing means, same as 'middle of the road'. You appear to use the term for anything you consider 'bad'.

    Do you understand what a 'sense of proportion' means'?

    Certainly the USA has had negatives in its history but to concentrate on America's past in which to find fault and not look at countries that right now are preaching war, hatreds, misogyny, etc. Instead the leftists will actually defend those countries , just as they have defended other murderous regimes.

    During the Cold War the United States had to put up with the same craziness from the leftists while the most murderous movement in world history was killing and enslaving millions, and those attacks still continue, no matter how long ago in the past they may have occurred.

    And for Europeans to criticize Americans when they have given birth to the most murderous regimes in world history goes well beyond the usual understanding of hypocrisy.

    As for racism in terms of political party, referring back to make some point about the present is absurd. The FACT is, the GOP has a rather serious problem with racism, as does the US, and it's actually gotten worse over the last four years of Obama's presidency, and you'd best believe it is conservative angst that has risen to the surface.

    Fix your OWN party. You're the only ones who can.
    You make these charges without any evidence at all, and that's just what leftists do.

    It seems to be a good thing that the Democrats are finally beginning to acknowledge their decades of racism but now, instead of looking for remedies, they are now trying to make the claim that the Dems suddenly saw the light and the Republicans, for some unknown reason and after fighting racism for more than a century, suddenly and without notice, became the party of racists. This is pure craziness.

    There is no evidence of this whatsoever, and it is the Democrats, just as their history demonstrates, who are always fixated on race rather than people.

    Right. More leftists groups. But the Cold War refers to Communists, the worst leftist group to date.

    If you are one of the far right who insist upon labeling Nazism and Fascism as leftist ideologies, there is no point in discussing anything with you as it is a blatant denial of reality and history.

    Quite frankly, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired how modern day righties try to pretend that past righties like the nazis and fascists were not on the same side of the spectrum because tey are bsy trying to score political points today.

    Its disgusting and outright stupid.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far-right_politics

    Far-right politics commonly includes authoritarianism, anti-communism, and nativism.[7] Often, the term "far right" is applied to fascists and neo-Nazis,[8][9][10][11][12] and major elements of fascism have been deemed clearly far right, such as its belief that supposedly superior people have the right to dominate society while purging allegedly inferior elements, and — in the case of Nazism — genocide of people deemed to be inferior.[13] Claims that superior people should proportionally have greater rights than inferior people are sometimes associated with the far right.[14
    And if you are one of those who attack Wikipedia, please not that there ar footnoted references to the sources of the statements which can be examined in detail and depth.

    This kind of right wing revisionist nonsense is not worth wasting another moment upon.
