    Don’t waste your time and energy trying to hold a rational, reasoned conversation with a Obama Zombie Dem Liberal. Most times, you’ll just end up beating your head against those who voted on skin color only. Better to try and motivate others who utilize logic and reason instead of top-down talking points to defend their positions. Speak the truth without fear of being called silly names like racist, Islamophobe, sexist, etc.

    Well, this is why I watch OReilly and Fox, the facts the truth and the exposed scandal. Just like 60 minutes used to do years ago; Ever wonder who is booking Sandra Fluke — the contraception advocated paraded around by Nancy Pelosi — on all those media appearances? And ever wonder if there’s something bigger going on with her? Bill O’Reilly is and he has a theory: the White House is behind it all. And now he’s uncovered a little nugget that plays right into that theory: Fluke is being represented by a PR firm partially run by a former Obama adviser. O’Reilly made his case by first detailing who has been booking Fluke with various media outlets — a mysterious man named “Mike.” Strangely enough, O‘Reilly can’t track Mike down, and now, Fluke is being represented by someone from the progressive PR firm SKDKnickerbocker, where Anita Dunn — the former Obama communications director — is a managing director. And it all checks out. The whitehouse has a war with Fox by way of using medimatters, whose stories never check out and every libterdial news source it can find. Its dirty....very dirty, filled with lies and no less scandal.

    Romeny as Commander-in-Chief? Yesterday, he praised the Chinese for their excellent roads, airports, and other infrastructure. He used them as an example of Capitalism. Only one problem, ALL of those are government controlled in China! This man is asking to lead our foreign policy? Not is my vote can help it!

      To - Romney as CIC? nice spin try? If everything is Gov't controlled? Why are some many Chinese compaines on the world stock exchanges companies owned by stock shareholders. Companies out to make a profit, and to increase investor shareholder value? To most of us it is a real form of capitalism! The new ascendant Chinese capitalism. China has today been through a long process of capitalist restoration initiated three decades ago. The reforms began in 1978, and extended and deepened, progressively debilitating the mechanisms of the planned economy and received a decisive push from 1992 onwards. In the 1990s an unrestrained process of privatization of state companies and liberalization of public services took place. Nowadays, two thirds of wage-earners work already for private capital. At the beginning of the 21st century, China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization in 2001 culminated its process of reintegration into global capitalism.

    Here are 14 good reasons their are many,many more to vote for Hope N Change in 2012 - LOL? 1,Denying the Keystone pipeline through the U.S.A. Denied us jobs & cheaper gas at the pump. 2, Apologizing to Arabs and making friends of radical Muslims. 3, The Obama apologizing world tour, Blaming the U.S.A. the world's troubles. 4, Guaranteeing $2 billion in loans to Brazil's Petrobras oil company. Allowing our people to teach them how to work. Funny George Soros owns tons of stock shares in Petrobras, according to Bloomberg.com. 5, Obama claims we may purchase this oil, but it going to China 6, The president never was experienced and seems inapt at his job. 7, Still blames George W. Bush for the high price of gas after 4 years since Bush was in office. 8, Lost opportunity in Iran when he had chance to support the uprising. 9, Threw Israel to the dogs. 10, 50% do not pay taxes. Would add taxes to the 1% who pay and earn the most. Funny Obama's GE & Company CEO who was a big Obama money donor in 2008 payed no taxes in 2011 11, Forcing Catholic or other religious hospitals to do or pay for abortions. 12, Forcing religious groups to supply contraceptives to employees. 13, Incompetent. 14, Not following US Constitution Just a few good reasons to vote again in 2012 for our Liar N Chief. LOL

      I thought you have 14 good reasons? I mean you could have at least brought up one reasoanble point to be against Obama. But all you have is a bunch of stupidity and talking points. By all means, be against Obama, there are certantly valid and good reasons to be, but don't be against him for idiotic reasons.

    Last night, in an uncontested Ohio primary, Obama received more votes than ANY Republican! Over 500,000 people went to the polls and voted for him even knowing he did not need for them to do it!!!

    Has radicalism hijacked the Republican Party. You have one candidate that wants to take American to the level of a Taliban ruled society. (Rick Santorum) Another candidate wants to build a Moon Colony (Newt Gingrich) And the other that says we should go to war with Iran but afraid to criticize a Radio Host that operates out of the basement of his home. (Mitt Romney) I have to admit, the forefathers would be ashamed. Based on what I hear from true conservatives, Barack Obama has his reelection wrapped up pretty tight.

        Exactly what has Obama done that is unconstitutional? The right has spent 4 years trying to find something on this man, to no avail. You repeatedly make this accusation with not one centilla of constitutional knowledge to back it up. As for "forefathers"-a local newsman was sued (successfully) by Jefferson when he published a derogatory article about him-even though it was TRUE! That trial paved the way for later changes in our slander laws-and the defending attorney was Hamilton! The fore-fathers were NOT of one mind, the way you imply! Ever hear of the Federalists and Anti-Feralists? Every time you state what the "fore-fathers" would do as if they all agreed with each other, you expose how very little you know about the history of this country. Washington, for example, stopped all gov't money to the Church of England in Va. because he was adamant about the separation of church and state-which Republicans now try to ignore! Your ignorance of the history of this country and the constitution and your constant name-calling as a form of debate are the reasons you and your cronies have no credibility here!

          Religous freedom? How is Romney going to explain why the Mormons continue to "baptise" Jewish Holocaust victims posthumously? Do you really want this "religion" think to continue into the general election? How are people going to react when they find out Romney believes God lives on a planet or the fact that they believe it has been promised that they will rule this country? You really want the details about Mormonism exposed? Come on!!

          Wage war? Not on his own, but he certantly has the right to authorize military action. Which is what he did in Pakistan and in Syria. Or do you think that Obama didn't have the right to authorize military actions in Pakistan? Maybe you should loosen your tin-foil hat, it's starting to effect your precption of reality and what people are actually saying.

    African-American Unemployment Rises Under Obama It’s bad enough that nationwide unemployment has risen back to 9.1%, but for some Americans that rate is significantly higher. Low-skilled workers, many of whom are African-American, are experiencing the worst of the down economy. The African-American unemployment rate stands at an outrageous 16.2% — not a number the Obama White House wants under the mantle of the nation’s first black president. While CBS News reports that the national black unemployment rate is usually higher than the overall unemployment rate, these figures stand at Depression-era levels. Worse? Black teenagers have a devastating unemployment level of 41%. Looks like Blacks got the worse part of Husseins Hope N Change? Obama might be the best Con Man in American History for Black Americans

      Of course their unemployment is higher. Their incomes also are lower. Recession always hurts those in the need most. Take a look at the last ten years-while the top 10% has gained by leaps and bounds, the middle and lower classes have suffered. That is EXACTLY why Obama believes it is only fair to adjust the tax rates! What does Romney propose to do? His economic plan give more breaks to the wealthy and actually INCREASES taxes on the lower incomes! It also increases the deficit-just as Bush's tax cuts and unpaid for wars did! That's exactly why this "class war" was started by the wealthy with the GOP aiding and abetting!

Bush. I regret even more so voting for McCain and that stupid mouth-breating radical that ran as his VP. I am truly grateful that Obama won the election in 2008 now though and be assured, I will never make the mistake of voting for a "Conservative" again, unless it's a true Conservative with constant and reasonable beliefs.

    Really them poor , rich $$$$$ Democrats? LOL. First Lady Michelle Obama attended a fundraiser in North Carolina last week that cost $100,000 per couple. The fundraising event held at the Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte, N.C., benefiting the Democratic National Convention included dinner, a performance by singer James Taylor, and a photo with the First Lady, reports newsobserver.com. Earlier in the evening, a reception was held with the First Lady and Taylor for a significantly smaller donation of $2,500 for platinum seating, which came with a gift of cuff links or a bracelet with the convention logo. However, the major meet-and-greet perks were only for those donors who dished out $100,000. Whats a beer cost $10,000.00 dollars?

      Nobody has EVER said that there are no Democratic millionaires!! It is what they DO with it that counts! It is what they are willing to do through laws and tax rates that is important! Nobody ever resented the Kennedy's for their money-because their financial and personal contributions to this country negated that resentment. It is the fact that the Republican millionaires are using their money to take MORE! While they sit in their walled communities, keeping money in off-shore accounts, raking in more money by bankrupting companies and putting workers on the street, they want MORE! Ironically, even they prospered more under Clinton's tax rates!

    NETANYAHU CONTROLS OBAMA'S FATE Published on Dick Morris.com on March 6, 2012 If Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to seal President Obama's fate, all he has to do is to attack Iran. It is clear from Obama's AIPAC speech that the president will continue to talk about diplomacy and sanctions for the remainder of his term and will take no military action against Iran. If Israel attacks Iran, she will achieve three things: a. Israel will buy time by delaying the Iranian nuclear program by one to three years. b. Those extra years will give the effective sanctions, only now being imposed, time to work. c. The resulting increase in the price of oil - and its impact on the American economy - will doom Obama's re-election chances, assuring that a pro-Israeli Republican Administration takes power. With a Republican in the White House and in control of Congress, Israel will be well positioned to derail permanently the Iranian nuclear program. Obama could never recover from the run-up of oil prices that would follow an Israeli attack. His refusal to approve the Keystone Pipeline, to drill in the ANWR reserve, and to issue permits for deep sea drilling, all make him ultra-vulnerable on the gas price issue. He has no good answers on the subject. How ironic that Netanyahu, therefore, really controls Obama's fate. He can't re-elect his sworn enemy (I doubt anyone can do that) but he can defeat him and likely will do so. Netanyahu has to face the fundamental fact that Israel cannot survive another four years of an Obama presidency. Freed of the constraints that the need to get re-elected imposes, the president's anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian bias will come out in virulent form with likely lethal implications for Israel. If Bibi lets Obama get re-elected, he will be dooming the Jewish State to extinction.

      When you mention Dick Morris you lost all your credibility right then. Dick Morris hasn't been right about anything since Ronald Reagen. The Republicans didn't hold Bush responsible for when gas was 5 dollars a gallon under him so the American people won't hold Obama accountable for it either. If you don't believe me then wait until election night
