I can’t believe that THE GOVT is denying our brave soldiers who are putting their lives on the line for this country their rights to Freedom of speech and Freedom of the Press.
I thought they were in Iraq preserving our freedoms from terrorism. Guess that was just another Bushie Lie.
Another right bites the Dust under the spend and steal REpublicans.
The latest Hillary attack against Barak Obama is "I think the best description actually is in Barack’s own book where he said that he is a blank screen and people of widely different views project what they want to hear. He just hasn’t been around long enough. But with the blank screen it gives you a chance to just really infuse it with whatever you hope for, whatever you want without knowing."*
If that’s all her people could come up with from "The Audacity of Hope", his 362 page book – and that’s in the prologue on page 11 – they should be worried. Everyone should read Obama’s "blank screen" quote in context to gain an understanding of his character:
Since the GOP is making the point that no one knows anything that Senator Obama has accomplished in his 47 years on this planet, I thought it might be a good time to enlighten people as to what exactly are some of the things that he has accomplished.
He earned a law degree from Harvard in 1991 and was the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduation he practiced and taught Constitutional Law.
Folks, as I’ve been saying, trade deals like NAFTA are NOT the primary reasons why manufacturing jobs are disappearing at an ever-increasing rate in our country. The REAL reason has far more to do with the manufacturing sector of our economy becoming more innovative and automated.
In fact, rather than falling, our output of manufactured goods in the United States has actually gone UP by some 66% since the NAFTA accord was inked. That work is simply now being done with fewer and fewer people.
An excellent article by Adrienne Lewis in today’s USA Today tells the real story:
People here like to say everything is bigger in Texas, and their oversized presidential contest is no different with not just a primary election, but a caucus added on, too.
The unique combination pits Barack Obama’s skill in caucus organizing against Hillary Rodham Clinton’s success in big-state primary campaigns.
Their different strengths have created the remarkably close race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Fighting to survive, Hillary Rodham Clinton is counting on female power to energize her faltering presidential bid. She’s hoping a double-digit lead among women in Ohio is the answer.
“I am thrilled to be running to be the first woman president, which I think would be a sea change in our country and around the world,” the New York senator said this week in Cleveland, emphasizing anew the pioneering aspect of her candidacy.
A woman in the White House, Clinton said, would present “a real challenge to the way things have been done, and who gets to do them and what the rules are.”
It seems that the mainstream press — what remains of it — has decided that Barack Obama is going to be the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate and the few boys left on the bus seem to be climbing off it and onto his bandwagon at the expense of fairness.
That’s the inescapable impression one gets from the deluge of coverage that exposes Hillary Rodham Clinton to far more scrutiny than her opponent.
A lawyer enamored of Barack Obama for president says she temporarily has stopped going out for drinks Fridays after work because her friends, other women, keep berating her for not supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton to be the first female president.
Civil-rights icon Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a longtime friend of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, somewhat sheepishly has dropped his endorsement of the former first lady in favor of Obama.
I don’t write much about politics anymore. Having four young kids has changed my focus a good bit.
But there are times that, well, politics is personal, and so it was when I heard Wednesday about William F. Buckley’s death. I was quite stunned and sad, realizing that someone who had shaped my worldview, and because of that impacts my family’s life to this day, is gone.
I grew up reading Bill Buckley’s magazine, National Review. (I am not making this up.)
