I have to leave my computer, but I’ll just comment on #1, The Children.

Obama is the most extreme baby killer in U.S. presidential history, bar none.

3.To Humphrey’s list of who government should look out for I would add some others: Pets-It may be silly, but I would never carry my beloved dog on the roof of my car.

Obama doesn’t put his dog on the car, he sits next to her in it!

Let me guess her answers:

1.) I drank anti-freeze when I was little.

2.) My momma always said I was good for nothing and don't want to make her a liar.

3.) I man at the shelter gave me fifty dollars.

4.) I want rich people to suffer.

5.) I would have his baby.

How close was I?

IIRC, Vice President Humphrey was as strong as the Founding Fathers on RKBA and pro-life. So he probably wouldn’t be welcome in the DFL Party today.

“I’m a liberal Christian”

To compound your apt comments about this vile creature, being a liberal and Christian is simply not possible. Although not all Conservatives are necessarily Christian, all true Christians are Conservative by definition. The intersection of liberals and Christians forms the null set.

Exactly, she says,

“I’m a liberal Christian, sixty-two year old female, Democrat and retired educator (in order of importance to me).”

Well she is truthful about the order and we know the first always trumps all others. Though she was probably not truthful in that she is more likely a retired indoctrinator than educator.

The obvious sign that this is complete BS can be found in #1 with this phrase: "Obama worked"

Baraq Obama is the laziest person ever to step foot in the White House. He did nothing as a community organizer. He did nothing at the Harvard Law Review. He did nothing as a college lecturer. He did nothing as a state legislator. He did nothing as a US Senator. And he has done nothing as President.

Even today (after a 3-day weekend), his only act as President was to give a statement about the hurricane, and in that statement, he basically told everyone to do what their local officials tell them to do. In other words, don't look to the White House for leadership. No one will be there.

Amen FRiend. Since I'm 70, I well recall the despicable Hubert Horatio Humphrey, Jr. He was a big supporter of Franklin Diablo Roosevelt's various "deals" and fully embraced the leftism of upper-Midwest populists. That alone puts HHH in the camp of Marxists. And, just as bad, he was a big defender of union thugs. I have no doubt that Hubie Humphrey and Teddy Kennedy are in close quarters...for all of eternity.

The idiot writing the editorial blew it before she even got started. By saying, "For me, Barack Obama’s life, career record and philosophy most reflects the values presented in the quote" she showed herself to be a fool.

Obama has none of the compassion or values in the HH quote. Everything he does is politically motivated and crafted for one reason only; to get reelected so he can carry on his mission of deconstructing America. He does not care for people - he uses people.

Repeat to infinity.

Saundra, if he did not look black would you have voted for him?
I think we know the answer.

Where could one even begin to comment on such an uninformed commentary?

Let's just try one. "He's (Obama) a Constitutional Scholar who understands the need for limits to our rights."

No, Saundra, there is no information to document any factual reason to believe he is a Constitutional Scholar. As an "educator," where is your source for that? He was employed as a "lecturer" on limited subjects related to the Constitution at the U of C. His time as Editor of the Harvard Law Review produced no writings which would indicate any "scholar" status. By his own statements, he believes ours is a "flawed" Constitution and "a document of negative liberties."

By the same token, renowned jurists from America and across the world have declared it to be, among other glowing descriptions, "the most wonderful document ever produced" by the mind of man.

And, by the way, Saundra, the American Constitution, according to its Framers and those who explained it to the States, is a document which limits the rights "We, the People" grant to our representatives in government. It is not a document by which the government limits our rights.

So much for his understanding of the Constitution--an yours, apparently.

"...For as long as I can remember my litmus test for those I vote for is based on a quote from the late Vice President Hubert Humphrey: “The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick needy and the handicapped..."

Well. Well, well. I have often said that liberals engage in Orwellian doublethink, and that the cognitive dissonance that has to cause in them is a a source of their, er...mental illness, but...this has to take the cake.

I saw this part: "...The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life..."

Who is more in the "dawn of life" than an unborn child?

And I most DEFINITELY don't need to go into cutting $700 million from Medicare to apply to Obamacare, which is going to deny that money to many people who don't meet the "comparative effectiveness" guidelines.

Unbelievable.

Just...wow.

Ah, I'm a little confused. Did you mean the above to read:

What she meant is, "I am a phony."

Is this the sense?

To my thinking as a fundamental, New Testament regenerated believer-disciple, the phrase "liberal Christian" is a contradiction. Which is what I think you are also saying. {?}

I can only think of one reason to vote for Obama...because I want to have to accept responsibility for what he's done!!!

If Romney gets elected and everything goes to Hell in November, by the time Romney takes over next year, we'll be in such a state of decline that no one will be able to do anything about it at that point.

The Democrats with their dishonest enablers in the media will blame Romney and Republicans for the mess that the Dems created and history will record the Republicans as the party that took down America and I want the Democrats to be the ones to take fall.

That's the ONLY good reason to vote for Obama.

Obama is like a two year old, he takes credit for the achievement of others and blames everyone and their dog for his failures.
