    Then you should do less thinking. It isn't working out for you. What part of Obama's success =/= America's success do you not understand?
    It seems you know a lot about Ignorance. I think you need to put more thought in what you are trying to say as you are failing here. It was clear what the message was behind those "hope Obama" fails post and I am not the one having a problem with understanding what has been put down in this thread.

    Yea, I am sure John Wayne would say the same thing about Obama that he did about JFK, even though the comparison between crab bisque and a can of sardines laced with strychnine would be about as accurate as comparing JFK to Obama.

    What's wrong, Martin? Conservative harsh words re: Obama are a-okay, but my words about those conservative words are dirty pool?




    Justifying a behavior by pointing to someone who did or said something worse is ridiculous when kindergartners do it. Even less effective when grownups do it.


    El Rushbo's words are abhorrent. If you repeat them, than yours are too.

    Then allow me to borrow one of B-rock's favorite phrases:

    "Let me be clear" or "I have been very clear on this issue" I HOPE OBAMA FAILS!!


    I never claimed "dirty pool". You can say whatever you want, just like Rush, me, John Wayne, Adams, Jefferson, and so on and so forth. I just wanted to put the remark into context and point out that harsh words are nothing new in politics and that we are not entering an era of neo-rudeness as your example would suggest.

    Not quite nothing, but not much. And certainly, most know little if anything about the Federalist Papers. The best known of any of these are likely the first three or four of the articles of amendment contained in the Bill of Rights.

    BTW -- saying Constitution and Bill of Rights is redundant... just saying...
