Bears repeating, loudly:

'Sadly, your nation and its predecessor succeeded in corrupting our institutions. You were part of those efforts, weren't you? The result: the low information voters who elected Obama twice.'

Joe McCarthy was right!!!

“...exhilaration and enthusiasm Reagan provided,...”

Wow, you can say that again! He was something else, our Ronnie. My first Presidential election.

There was something about his voice - just made you feel “Everything’s going to Fine. Don’t Worry.” and it wasn’t a false sense. You KNEW he meant it, and would try to make damn sure it stayed true.

Sarah Palin brought that back for me as well.

“....sheer deviancy of the American culture...”

Again, that’s SOME of the people, and I think it’s always been there, just not as out in the open. Once again, the minority who ARE the freakshow managed to get in power - granted, at all levels across the country - but this is what they do.

Just up to us to repel boarders, brother...

Putin is making it crystal clear that we have been fading under Obama’s leadership. We lived in a special nation before Obama. Economic panic and a weak GOP candidate drove us into Obama’s shackles.

But we WILL be a special nation again — never as special people, but as people who can find our own unique talents as a free people. Levin’s Liberty Amendments are the key to unlock Ruling Class chains.

It’s not the People we should fear — look at the Colorado recall. I note four examples of how the super majority is not the same as the Ruling Class:

less than 20% want abortion on deman.
gun rights — overhwhelmingly popular.
One man One Woman — overwhelmingly popular.
Obama-care — overwhelmingly opposed.

“Joe McCarthy was right!!!”

Ann Coulter’s Treason completely obliterated the Leftist take on McCarthy.

And what Kennedy did to the USSR. Obama comes across as the rank naive school boy. Any one of us here on FR could run this gov’t better than this guy. For one thing we would surround ourselves with capable people.

We learn nothing from the man at any level. He teaches our youth nothing esp our black youth.

Sorry to say this, but I am praying that things get worse, and the uninformed majority voting public gets smart finally and votes these bums out next year.

After Carter, the US elected RWR.

I would like to think that the voting population in the US has once again seen the naked truth of what liberalism is about and will run, fast, in the other direction.

“Even minor disputes escalate into frequent gun violence on the streets. Kidnappings and armed robberies are increasing, and government officials and others have been assassinated with guns and bombs.

But enough about Chicago... let's talk about Libya.

I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.
....
I am not sure how to interpret this translation.

Hasn’t it been Obama, his wife and administration who have been telling us for years how much better than America other countries and the UN are? Putin is simply agreeing with them.
