The story line remains. The Democrats cannot be trusted, they will follow along with whatever the likes of 0bama, Pelosi or Reid tell them to do. The progressives, unions and special interests control the Democrat Party. No matter who they nominate, that person will not represent rank and file voters.

And most of those “terrorists” were US citizens and the crimes they committed are a stretch to call them terrorist acts. The WH has never provided a list of those “hundreds of terrorist trials.”

My son's school had a graduation ceremony Friday night for the graduate students. (He received a Master's in Physics.) Tammy Duckworth was presented with an honorary doctor's degree from the school. When she spoke, she spoke of the (School)MAFIA, and how she was always meeting somebody from the school. What a strange word to be used by a member of the Obama administration.

She almost ummediately corrected herself and used a different word, but still...

The RINOs changing their tunes on illegal immigration is a good sign that they see it as a key electoral issue.

Kristol promulgating a great whackout by Wahn at the end of the panel discussion regarding Utah’s Bennet and the perpetual incumbent attitude.

As well it should. We need to clear out all RINOs who have been working overtime to undermine conservative values.

Liebermann: "American citizens swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic." Huh?? Is he referring to ALL citizens or naturalized ones??

Actually, it might not be a bad idea for all children born in this country to have some kind of "American Conformation" or American Bar Mitzfah" where they have the same kind of moment that a naturalized citizen has when they do the loyalty oath. Maybe they would have a better idea of what they have, and how they got there.

That would be “John Podesta being the class act that he is”, according to Fred Malek?

Well, they used to say the Pledge of Allegiance and learn all about American History and the workings of American Government in school, back before the leftists took over.

And if they didn’t want to take the oath, what would we do with them? Not allow them to vote or run for office? Seems like a good intention turned a little too Orwellian.

If you did something like that every day (and I did when I was in school) you might let it get away from your children. On the other hand, if every American citizen born in this country had a formal ceremony some time around age 14 maybe it would stay with them,

No, they would want to run for office as a Democrat, or be a lawyer, or both. Maybe we just put them on a progresssive tax table when they become taxpayers, so they can pay a little extra, just like Bill Gates and other very rich people who keep complaining that they don’t pay enough taxes.

John Brennan is on FNS insinuating that the Times Square bomber thing was a success because the guy was apprehended so quickly. (Blowing over the fact that an unemployed car bomb tends to leave a lot of evidence behind.)

When the Obama Adminstration makes up a new Czar position for "Office of Bringing the BodyBags, I think Brennan should be the front-runner.

Democrats are preemptively setting up a blame game if or when we experience a successful terrorist attack on us.

One, they cried the blues over the Times Square bomber turned out to be a terrorist with Islamic ties since they really wanted to blame Tea Party Patriots.

Two, the administration policies and management leads to failure but they will not accept what responsibility they have, preferring to blame others.

Three, Podesta exemplifies failure, not the solution.

I think you have just cracked the O-bot code. Any successful terrorist attack will be redefined by this regime as something else. For example they claim that "Fort Hood=lone nut case upset because he was bullied not terrorism".

Sometimes but not always.

The la razza(the race) wench Clarissa Martinez on C-spam earlier was a huge study in chatting points, brainwashing and learning what to say when.

My take from all that was said is the DNC has a new chatting point that they are trying to get at least the DBM media consensus that the govt. needs to step into solve the immigration fiasco,borders aren't manned, drugs,kidnapping,illegals out of control--all this can be stopped and solved by the govt.stepping in and passing new laws.

This is the mantra and they are slyly trying to sneak it in so it will be demanded at least by the DBM so they can bring it up in Congress.

There is just one small problem with all this pap.

The real reason they want it brought up is for one word AMNESTY. That's what all this is about. It's 38 million new voters and a strangle hold on majority rule for the left for the foreseeable future.

They are approaching it from a right of center platform lying about their true intentions as they usually do and hopeful of getting traction.

Its another snake pit for the Lindsay Gramnestys of Congress to fall in.

The current regime and make no mistake about it Rush is right they are a regime,ever as deadly as Chavez, Castro or Putin,is perfectly willing to wait 50/100 years to achieve their hope and change. Just like the muzzies,chicoms, ruskies, or others they will take the long road to destroy free markets capitalism and democracy.Unfortunately time appears to have be on their side. It's up to us to stop it.

Stronger civics courses would be required for many to understand the oath they are undertaking - since many politicians take a similar oath they never intend to honor.

Listened to the re-broadcast of Liebermann, suggests leaving it to the State Department to determine who's a terrorist and be stripped or Constitutionally guaranteed Rights.

Because there is crime and terrorism, American citizens should lose their rights. Liebermann is sounding like a domestic enemy of the Constitution himself.

Wow what a great expose of the global warming BS issue.!

You nailed it to the ground. Now that they are totally exposed and giving it the obmacare treatment--totally ignoring all the arguments against,its out of the lime light.

But, if we have any foresight at all we will make both issues huge campaign nails in the slowly sinking leaky coffin of the left.

Guest on Fareed Zakaria’s show on CNN states that more Drones have bombed Pakistan during the Obama admin than in all the years of the Bush admin.

Fareed actually has guests that have information to impart. It is the only time I turn to CNN.

Dear David leader definitely had his DNC points to make and holder was at his mercy and not well prepared for all the election 2010 points that dear David brought up.

Gregroy was trying to negate some of our strongest points that the dems are so weak on terrorism.

He kept saying that sometimes we have to overlook some of the laws,(Miranda) on the books and inferred that it was ok since the dems were in office.

Now when GW was in office that would have been an impeachable offense but times have changed. And we are getting our hope and change almost daily.

Anything to get the dems not to look weak on terrorism.

The only thing that saved us from bloody mayhem in both the Xmas underwear bomber and the Times Sq. car bomb cases was some great luck and/or incompetence that in neither case did the explosive devices go off as intended.

In neither case did the Obamanation have the slightest role in stopping either bomber before the moment when the explosives would have gone off had the devices worked as intended.

Then of course there is the hideous Ft. Hood massacre in which the Obamanation failed utterly to enable us to deal with obvious warning signs in time....

Meanwhile over no NBC it was almost hilarious to watch the panel since the more they demagogued profiling the more they showed the audience that those who commit the crimes/terrorist events are basically muzzies/muslims and none of them even the moderates(who probably don't exist) can be trusted since they are liable to go haywire at any moment.

Truly a hilarious moment.

Of course what is never discussed is why we don't have control over our immigration policies/mandates and whey we don't let in only people who can benefit the country without ever sacrificing national defense.

Worse yet, its never brought up that current immigration policy of open borders makes us the most racist/biased nation alive since we ignore and shut out most of the world while letting in anyone who can pay off a criminal to bring them in.

That would be anathema to the dems to even bring up.

He was totally against it but let dear leader Dave ramble on about how once in a while its necessary, but they have to have miranda except once in a while...,These guys are all full of sh_t and they know it.

They have no intention of serving the country only the concept of liberalism.
