    I'm getting into this debate more and more with people and getting nowhere. They're saying the parties somehow "flipped" and say the Republicans were previously the racist democrat party of KKK, Slavery and Jim Crow. I contest that the Republican principals were the same under Lincoln as they are today. Also, voters from the South let go of their ties to the racist Democrats and starting voting for Republicans. I'm looking for facts starting from Teddy Roosevelt, to WW, Coolidge, FDR and through the late 1960's...A lot of you on here are historians and I value your input. I believe...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 12-22-2011 | Byron York
    In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" a few days ago, Mitt Romney was asked whether, given what we know today, the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq was the right thing to do. Romney wouldn't say. "Oh boy, that's a big question," Romney answered. "And going back and trying to say, given what we know now, what would we have done? Would we have invaded or not? At the time, we didn't have the knowledge that we have now." Romney mentioned intelligence before the war suggesting that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. After the war, U.S. and international...

In August 2005, Obama agreed with George Bush’s decision to release oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in order to buffer the economy from the effects of Hurricane Katrina. However, Obama warned that such actions should only take place in times of real emergency (emphases mine): I agree with the...

    Consider what Trump had to say about the Bush Administration's approach to Iran: "Maybe the President, instead of saying let's not even see this guy, maybe he should be negotiating with him, maybe he should be talking with him." Upon hearing that, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doucy asked Trump with regard to Ahmadinejad, "Do you think he's mentally stable?" Trump replied, "Who are you talking about? The President?"

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Newport News police say a man died while trying to scale a fence overnight. It happened at the Anderson's Home and Garden Showplace on Jefferson Avenue. According to investigators, a man and his girlfriend drove into the garden center's parking lot after an argument. They say the man, 26 from Newport News, tried to scale the fence and got his head caught between two posts. As he tried to flip over the fence, he was killed. The victim was removed from the fence by the fire department and was transported to the medical examiners office...

    business and media ^ | 7/23/10 | Julia A. Seymour
    It is rare that the network news media expose President Barack Obama’s hypocrisy on any point, which is why Mark Knoller’s CBS story on July 22 was so enlightening. Covering Obama’s July 22 signing of a bill “restoring” jobless benefits to roughly 2.5 million Americans who have been unemployed for more than 26 weeks, Knoller wrote that Obama “changes tune on paying for unemployment benefits extension.” Many in the news media lauded this “relief” bill and vilified conservatives trying to block its passage. The GOP filibuster was based on the idea that the $34 billion should be paid for, rather...
  • Administration Changes its Tune on Extremist, Racist, Voters

    There is a seachange in the attitude of the left. A left that can no longer marginalize oposition with acusations of racism, and extremism; that model just does not hold up in the demographic of the Massachusetts election. Since the Administration is unwilling to call the vote what it is: a referendum on our liberal agenda, the new effort is to associate the anger that voters expressed at the polls with the momentum that carried Obama into office. Prior to the election, the left characterized angry voters as extremists and racists. Now, however, there is a rush to paint a...
  • Pelosi, allies pressure Dems to back climate bill (TX Rep.Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) flipped by Pelosi)

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prowled the floor Friday morning, hungry for the votes she needs to pass her flagship climate-change legislation. Some leadership aides said Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team had rounded up enough votes to pass the bill with Democratic votes, and would go forward with a vote Friday. Leaders usually don't put a major bill on the floor unless they know they have the votes to pass it. ... But another source familiar with the vote-counting cast doubt on that, saying the effort to lasso the votes could push into Saturday. On a procedural vote needed to...

    Real headline today: Obama's Flip-Flops for the Public Good Are you effin kidding me? Overall, however, Obama has been praised for his flexibility, not condemned for his flip-flops. One reason, pollsters say, is that he seems such a contrast to the still-unpopular Bush, who was the opposite–stubborn and set in his ways. “When presented with a tough problem where a change of course was called for, Bush just dug in. He felt that it was weakness to change his mind,” says a senior Democratic strategist. He cites Bush’s positions to limit stem cell research, oppose legislation expanding healthcare for children,...

    Yep, when the Obama Administration's envoy to the regional security conference in Singapore was getting ready to leave, he flat out said North Korea's nuclear test, SEVEN missile tests, it's end of the 50+yr cease-fire, it's threat to attack ANY ship trying to contain their weapons sales, and it's threat to attack the UN if sanctions are imposed....yeah, Gates said they're not a threat (after raising the threat level of American forces in the region). Defense Secretary Robert Gates, en route to an annual security summit in Singapore Friday, signaled as much, saying North Korea’s actions so far do not...

    Moments after voting to authorize the bill, the Democrat told the floor he had goofed. "I'd like to be recorded as a 'no' vote," he said, according to transcripts, adding that he had mistakenly voted in favor of the legislation. By claiming to have made an error, Obama's "intent" to vote against the measure was noted in the record. But his initial "yes" stood. Obama made six similar "mistakes" during his state Senate years, twice on hotly contested measures.
