    When was the U.S. founded? I believe that most people would say it was when the Constitution was written. It could be the Declaration of Independence, but then Hamilton and Adams would not be Founding Fathers as neither was involved in the Declaration. If it is the writing of the Constitution, John Quincy would be 20 years-old. While he was not a Founding Father, he was an adult in 1787.

    John Adams did not own any slaves nor did John Quincy. He was an avid opponent of slavery. Her statement was incorrect, but, as you have correctly stated, partisans will make hay over the smallest of things. Personally, I could care less about the gaffes of Obama or Biden. I am most concerned about the dangerous policies of the Democrats.

    He was 9 years old at the time of the revolt. So he was not born long after. He was born before...
    I have a book on Adams. maybe I should go get it off my bookshelf and thumb through it again.

    Two gaffes. Both wrong. No excuses. If I were to stay awake for 48 or 72 hours straight, I'd bet that I would remember that there are 50 states. I would also remember that John Quincy was not a Founding Father. Much ado about nothing.

    No I didn't. I would have dated myself if I told you that I remember an episode of the Perry Como Show on TV..... Oops, I just dated myself. LOL.

    Speaking of which, as of today Palin is still in "I refuse to confirm or deny" land on the running for President front. Bristol let something slip on some morning show - I'm pretty sure Ms. Palin will be running.

    Barack Obama on the other hand is brilliant.

    First, it was just a single insurgent, jumping out from behind a boulder. Then, the whole valley seemed to explode with gunfire. Within seconds, Rob and his patrol were pinned down, with almost no cover — bullets and rocket-propelled grenades raining down from every direction. And when enemy reinforcements poured in, the odds were overwhelming. Rob’s small patrol of two dozen men was nearly surrounded by almost 150 insurgents.

    With the enemy just feets away
    — some so close he could see their faces — Rob held his ground. Despite the chaos around him, he radioed back enemy positions. As the only Pashto speaker on his team, he organized the Afghan soldiers around him. But the incoming fire, in the words of one soldier, was simply “astounding.”
