Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset."

Are the open primaries up to the state or the RNC?

Boxer is up for reelection in 2010

I pray she gets caught up in the whirlwind and is tossed out. Californians need a “Boxer Rebellion” all their own.

My fantasy - Boxer, Reid, Spectre and McLame are tossed and Pelosi loses the Speaker’s gavel.

I knew there was something in addition to MN, but didn’t recall DC, was thinking Delaware since it’s about the same size as DC.

Good call.

Leave Pelosi in so John Q Public knows what they'll get if they put the dems in charge again.

Just heard on the newsbreak Obama said he would deliver health care reform by the end of the year, and that “it didn’t have to be a bi-partisan effort.”

Pelosi will stay in because she is in a safe district. I don’t think she even has challengers. The only way she will leave the House is on a slab.

But make her lose the Speaker’s gavel and have her have to fly on airliners again instead of her $50 million dollar private jet would be priceless.

I was brought to tears when McCain spoke about his
love for our country. He is an incredibly forgiving,
gentle, man who may assume that everyone who runs
for office wants the very best for America.

Perhaps that is why he such a poor politician. He
can’t see that many of his colleagues across the aisle
are evil people who do not have the best interested
of the United States in their values.

...Believe it or not, Conservatives can walk and chew gum at the same time...

Oh I know that - wasn’t talking to Freepers! Heck I watch the Crab Fishermen myself!
Let me tell you, though, the majority of the people around me - friends, coworkers and family - will ONLY watch TV or play video games - or whatever - and they admit they do not want to be bothered with politics.

Most of them did not want to hear about Obama before the election. Obama was black, and cool, and young and different, and he was going to bring gay marriage and end racial strife. And I was the nut job for pointing Ayers and where was Zero born and every other thing that should have scared people to death about him!

THOSE are the people I was talking about. And how many of us are in the same boat? How many of us are surrounded by people who don’t want to - or haven’t wanted to - hear it?

It may change now, Lord I pray it does!
Just don’t think I was talking to you or anybody here. Ok?

You would remind me during lunch that Senator POS is still out there, running his mouth.

Yes, I live in Montana.

After I get finished gagging, I'll extend my most profound apologies that "we" sent that [BLEEP] back to congress last year. The rotten POS bought the election, JMHO.

While a new, national program will not force anyone to change health-care systems, President Obama said it could offer benefits or geographic convenience that might make some veterans elect to join it.

But the REAL question is if that person joins in, FINDS THAT THE CARE SUCKS, can that person opt back out?

It grieves my heart when I hear FReepers badmouth
John McCain. He is first and foremost a man who
served seven years of his military life as a POW.

He may be a poor politician, but then isn’t that
actually a compliment... isn’t it?

Standing joke about Baucus is the reason he left the ranch for politics was the herd dogs kept attacking him because they couldn’t tell him from a coyote.

Robert Green Ingersoll - Indianapolis Speech (1876)

http://www.infidels.org/library/historical/robert_ingersoll/indianapolis_speech76.html

“I am a Republican. I will tell you why: This is the only free Government in the world. The Republican party made it so. The Republican party took the chains from four millions of people. The Republican party, with the wand of progress, touched the auction- block and it became a school house, The Republican party put down the Rebellion, saved the nation, kept the old banner afloat in the air, and declared that slavery of every kind should be extirpated from the face of this continent. What more? I am a Republican because it is the only free party that ever existed. It is a party that has a platform as broad as humanity, a platform as broad as the human race, a party that says you shall have all the fruit of the labor of your hands, a party that says you may think for yourself, a party that says, no chains for the hands, no fetters for the soul.”

Please...McCain’s a sell out. Remember the Amnesty bill? his voting record is disgraceful.

the very sight of him makes me ill. I voted for him, but held my nose the entire time. It made my skin crawl.

It’s long past time for him to retire... hopefully Chris Simcox and a majority of the AZ voters will see to that.

Yes, well, this citizen called for a “RESET”

designed a year of Jubilee every 25 years to
reset the land to it’s original owners. And
Jefferson advocated a revolution every 25 years.

Obama says the 2.4 billion bucks he’s giving to one company in one city in one state will create 10s of thousands of jobs?

Just heard it after the show. $2.4 Billion for companies to build electric cars and batteries. Didn't say what companies though.

Well...I also believe that if the Republicans are motivated to vote then we can double all the votes that the Dems put out....even when they cheat having their dogs and deceased relatives vote. Rush pointed out that the Republicans are dominant...just discouraged to vote.

Remeber the “Knock on the Neighbor’s Door Day”? Obama supporters were supposed to go to EVERYONE’s neighbor and knock on the door and say how wonderful obama was.

nobody showed up.

nobody did anything.

the day was a bust.

Obama has a few loud radicals. Even his big mobs are there for something else. Barakopolis had a crowd because of free rock concert rumors. (and media whores clamoring with their press passes)

Obama’s european vacation had crowds again for the rock music.

How many crowds were just union thugs? teacher union slaves?

Obama is a paper tiger we need to expose.

The time for getting the most conservative candidate is determined by the primaries. If we allow ourselves to be flooded with RINO candidates as our only choices, that’s what we’ll end up with and lose to FRAUDS like DUh-bama.

But then the GOP needs to go from state to state and MAKE SURE that ONLY Registered Republicans can vote in the primaries. In the beginning of this last election cycle, the libs had their own Operation Chaos which led to McCain being the nominee. That cannot happen again!

Parties set rules for their own primaries, but they can be regulated by state legislatures.

Some states have open primaries, some have caucuses, until recently some didn’t have primaries
