“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
"He [Harry Reid] was wowed by Obama's oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama -- a 'light-skinned' African American 'with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one".
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man." --Joe Biden on Barack Obama
“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.” Geraldine Ferraro
I only quoted Democrats. Barrack Obama won the Presidential nomination for the same reason he won the Nobel Peace Prize. "Old quotes" from 2008 is just five years ago.
My understanding is that the national debt added in this administration has nearly equaled all the national debt accumulated by all the other administrations combined.
This seems to me as an alarming sign that something needs to be done. Obama hasn't done it, nether has the Democratic Senate. He's not promoted it, nether has the Democratic Senate. He and the Democratic Senate have shutdown the government to try and prevent spending decreases. How is this not the height of fiscal irresponsibility?
disagree on Afganistan, where Obama is being sucked into a long term presence, even after 'AQ Central' (Pakistan) has been significantly degraded.
All we ever had to do there was go after AQ, and not buy into Obama's "surge/no surge" where he compromised on the escalation,
and at the same time announcing a withdrawl date.
Can't split the baby in 2 in war, and a simple counter-terrorism strategy would have been fine, instead of nationbuilding Afg.
without a doubt Mccain would have been worse, the man is a rabid war dog, and gawd only knows where we'd be now.
Remember this one?
