Obama Mounts High Horse on Supreme Court Nomination

892

Democrats from Elizabeth Warren to Hillary Clinton have been shouting to anyone who will listen that President Obama should nominate a new Supreme Court Justice to replace the fallen conservative hero, Antonin Scalia. On Tuesday, Obama himself addressed the subject, demanding that Republicans come up with a legitimate reason to block a nominee.

“The Constitution is pretty clear about what is supposed to happen now,” Obama said at a California press conference. “There’s no unwritten law that says that it can only be done on off years. That’s not in the constitutional text.”

Obama’s moral high ground is somewhat mitigated by the inconvenient fact that he himself tried to block the confirmation of Justice Samuel Alito in 2005, a bit of hypocrisy he tried to downplay. “I think what’s fair to say is that how judicial nominations have evolved over time is not historically the fault of any single party,” he said. “What is also true is Justice Alito is on the bench right now.”

True enough, but what does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Obama’s trying to make it sound like Republicans in the Senate are in violation of their constitutional duty, and that’s a heavy-handed charge given his own history.

“We’ve almost gotten accustomed to how obstructionist the Senate has become when it comes to nominations,” Obama said.

That’s a good thing. Whether you want to use the term “obstructionist” or not, this partisan fight is what our system of government is all about. It’s not about Congress, the Supreme Court, and the White House all working in tandem, each of them rubber-stamping the other branch’s decisions. As much as the word “gridlock” has become an expletive, it is one of the most important features of our democracy. Better to go two sessions with a incomplete Supreme Court than to let this liberal president forever change the course of the judicial branch.

Senate Republicans had better be careful here. Their failure to effectively oppose this president is directly responsible for the voter outrage that has thrown the 2016 election into chaos. If history repeats itself this time – a period of tough talk followed by utter capitulation – there will be hell to pay. Obama has made a mockery of the legislative branch for the last seven years, undermining congressional authority whenever it suited his agenda. Now he wants to play Mr. Constitution? Seriously?

To be sure, blocking Obama’s nominee will have political consequences. A confirmation, though, would be the single biggest nail in the coffin of American conservatism in modern history. The choice is obvious. Let’s pray that Republicans can see that.

    McConnell opened his mouth and said that he will not schedule the hearings. If he does and the liberal, activist selectee is confirmed the rule of law will be mute. As it is now, Obama doesn’t know what the rule of law is and neither does the democrats in Congress nor the party. This is the one time McConnell has to be true to his word and not schedule a hearing or if he does, make sure the Repubs stand together and does not let the vote succeed.

    1. AKLady says

        Why don’t you spell it out for all of us? Write out the rule of law. And by the way, no one has mentioned race in this small thread except YOU. You seem to be obsessed with his race. Have you spoken with a councilor about this? It might do you a world of good to have a professional explain to you that race isn’t a factor in every discussion or disagreement.

    So, he will nominate because it is constitutional!?
    What about the second amendment, that is part of the constitution yet HIMSELF, and his other cronies, look to have that abolished!
    Among ” other things” the..man? is a hypocrite! (did I spell that correctly?)
    Well in any event someone needs to knock that Mother Lover OFF that high horse that he is on!

      The Constitution requires the President o nominate a replacement.
      As for your accusations, name one single piece of evidence to suppirt your claims.

      1. Shannah says

        On national tv, he himself said he had no legal right to make laws . this was regarding amnesty in particular, yet he turns around and does it anyway simply because he isn’t getting his way from the Senate nor house of Representatives. There is your one single piece of evidence.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          It is a piece of evidence, however it is your ignorance of the law which has been documented.

      3. Clay Fitzgerald says

        True, the constitution does say that the president shall nominate, among other positions, “Judges of the supreme Court.” However, it does not say that the Senate must rubber stamp the nominees. Appointments are made with the advice and CONSENT of the Senate. The Senate has every right to withhold consent for any nominee that they may find unsuitable for the office.

    2. Jeanne says

      You forget, he was elected president twice and it’s his duty. so cry babies, get lost

      1. Shannah says

        I don’t care if he was elected 20 times, our Constitution has outlined the process and procedures by which these issues are to be dealt with. His pen and his phone be dammed!

  5. Dennis Mirante says

    IF YOU WANT TO ATTEMPT TO STIFFEN THE REPUBLICAN’S SPINES, sign the petition at http://aclj.org telling them to REFUSE TO HAVE ANY HEARINGS WHATSOEVER for any supreme court nomination made by Obama. Grassley, the head of the senate judiciary committee, and McConnell, could stop everything dead in its tracks by simply, forcefully, stating now that no nomination will be considered. However, since they are both limp dicks, they can’t be trusted. Grassley seems to indicate that they will act on a nominee when one is made. This is unacceptable, and plays in Obama’s hands. Seeing an in, he will appoint some minority candidate. If the senate holds a hearing, Obama will use the worn out liberal argument that the nominee will not be fairly considered because of racism. The Republicans will then wring their hands and capitulate, which has become their MO since their becoming the majority party in both houses of congress. Tell these weak kneed bastard cowards to grow a set of balls.

        what the hell do you think Obama has been doing, you really have stupid arguments.

  6. sue lenhart says

    Since when did Obama ever care two licks about what the Constitution says? He cares about as much about the Constitution as he does about the average American citizen. The only time he ever brings up either one is when it serves his own agenda to bring them up. Sorry, Mr. Obama, we don’t have your back on this one — you’re on your own, and that’s the way it should be.

            Then please cite for us the law or president that gives Obama the right to make new laws simply because he is unhappy with the decision of the House and Senate. I know about Executive order, however, that is to be used in extenuating circumstances, not every time he disagrees with the outcome of a vote.

          2. Clay Fitzgerald says

            AKLady, being a liberal, secular-progressive, claims so many things that it is difficult to keep track of the all that spews from that source. So many things are claimed by AKLady, everything must be taken with great skepticism. All are highly doubtful.

  7. Ralph Sinamon says

    “As I say….NOT as I do!” Obama has so little regard for the intelligence of others, that I can’t help but wonder what he does for those that hang around him. Gridlock was built in! Pelosi and the other Demon’s did exactly the same thing when Bush was the Prez. Let Obama nominate…..it is his duty. Let the Senate take their sweet-ass time……..THAT is their job!

    1. Dennis B Anderson says

      It seems that everything that gets passed gets that way only through Obamas fiat works. Oh how he cares about you americans! You have read and heard he has started another war havent you?
      With his current track record you would think differently about the black farret in the hole with his pen & phone. A war on poor ole Al seems its been brought to Obies attention. Seems that Al has been forgetful here lately and the liar in cheif wants to help out ole Al Heimers. When the Pos says he wants to help out one must take precautions as to first find out whom. and what other country??

            Well thats why in GODS plan he gave us all fingers so we can sample things for ourselves. You dont have to be small minded or a bigot to dis like Obama. Lets see now Obama has fueled race tensions. As far as your intolerant feelings towards people with different opinions they are over running our borders at our expence. Our president is facist in his thinking he will give this country away till theres nothing left to give! Maybe he will give you away. Our country is insolvent we have no borders. This is treasonous Obama was hired to protect our borders. Obamas health care program has turned out to be the biggest ponzi scheme the world has ever known. $150 billion to Iran for what while the illegals are signing up for government programs while were now 20 trillion in dept?Yeah theres a dream come true.Obama funding our enemies.??. Bad things will continue to happen untill good men take them down.
            Now this is how our government is working, and not how its supposed to work.
            You dont have to be small minded to want your country back, but you have to be small minded not to understand he belongs behind bars along with his entire administration. Its 1939 Germany right now wake the hell up.

            Also, I suggest you learn how your government actually functions.

            The Electoral College elects the President.

            These Presidents did not win the popular vote: John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamine Harrison, George H.W. Bush, William Clinton, and George W. Bush (twice)

          25. Tiger says

            The Electoral College in many states are told to vote for the one who wins the Popular vote. Other States tell them to vote the States favorite and some just let them vote their way, this is why Hillary came out ahead of Sanders.

            As to O he won through dead people, those that voted several times, illegals and animals. In Florida alone when Scott cleaned out the polling offices he found 35,000 dead people voted. He also found that those running the polls that were Demoncats didn’t count Republican votes.

He doesn’t have the proper documents to be vetted legally and Constitutionally and has had the records sealed as a way of preventing anyone from finding out the truth, he is an Indonesian citizen, not a U.S. Citizen in the first place. Regardless of where he was born, he is still an Indonesian and the Constitution stipulates that only a ‘natural born’ citizen, whose parents are both citizens of the USA, can qualify. He does not qualify in any way, shape or form. This is the biggest scam on the USA in the history of the world and he is getting away with it. He and his commie side kick VJarrett, who is a communist, Iranian Muslim and hates the USA!AND SHE IS RUNNING OUR COUNTRY INTO THE GROUND, GIVING IRAN THE MONEY THEY NEED TO BUY THEIR NUCLEAR BOMBS WITH TO DESTROY THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL MAD MEN!

          38. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I just have to wonder, when it comes to a person like you, Do you lie intentionally or just rely entirely upon what other people tell you? President Obama was never an Indonesian. I was born and raised in Alabama but I am not an Alabamian under any stretch of imagination. My father was a Conservative but I am unquestionably, a Liberal. I’ll try to lay this out so a normal thinking person might understand. With you? There’s not much hope there!
            Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, HI, August 4, 1961. When his father Barack Obama Sr. left Barack Jr. and his mother, she filed for divorce and later married Lolo Soetoro. They moved to Indonesia where he did attend Indonesian schools for a couple of years. Then his mother took him out and home schooled him as an American student. When Obama was ten years old he moved to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents and completed his primary education there. Thus began his real education as an American. Do you think you can understand this? He was not “defrauded” in, whatever that means. He was elected by a preponderance of votes and re-elected by a larger plurality. He is President of the United States of America and, if it were possible, he would be re-elected again by possibly a larger plurality. He will be regarded as one of America’s great presidents and all the snot you write about him will have no effect on that happening! Sorry to disillusion you.

          39. DW3223 says

            So you’re saying his father Barack Obama Sr. was a US citizen? His father was a Kenyan citizen, In that case only one of his parents is a US citizen therefore deeming him in eligible to be president of United States.

          40. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Now how in God’s name did you assume that I said Obama Sr. was a US citizen? You have reached a new level of stupidity!. Now you’re saying Barack Obama Sr,s father was a Kenyan ? My, my! What an astute observation! Of course he was Kenyan. His name was Onyango Obama. He died in 1979. Er, Barack Obama Sr. never tried to run for president of the United States. Of course he was ineligible. I thiunk you might have some of your people a little mixed up.
            Now, Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, HI in 1961. It would not have mattered if BOTH his parents had been Kenyan, he still would be eligible to run for President! Don’t you know nothin’?

          41. DW3223 says

            Did you say how in Gods name ? I thought you were an atheist.

          42. 1EdMeadows83 says

            DW, Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris are probably the two outstanding atheists of our time and they often say things like, “For God’s Sake” and “God only Knows”. I often say “Goddamned” with no expectation that a fictitious God will actually damn anything I wish him to. You;re nit-picking, my friend.

            No you silly twit. What eluding to was Barack Obama Junior wasn’t eligible to run for president in the first place because both his parents were not US citizens. And if Obama is so great why is this country and a death spiral with massive debt unprecedented unemployment real unemployment, not the figures he puts out through the department of labor The free world doesn’t respect us any longer our enemies don’t fear us any longer and silly idiots like you decide to back the very person That is destroying our country. He’s been releasing detainees from Guantánamo were at least 30% of them have been returning to the fight around the world against us with Isis and Al Qaeda. He’s been trying to destroy this country in favor of the Muslim world since the day he was sworn into office. He’s been ruining the country with his phone in his pen long enough now he wants to tout the constitution when wants to apoint a liberal justices to the Supreme Court. He’s no more than the snake in the garden of Eden. As far as conservatives go if you don’t like it here with us conservatives and wanted to move to Greece or Sweden or somewhere that might suit you better, don’t want to begging you to stay. This country was built with God, guts and guns and if you don’t like it stick it in your a$$. Try getting out of your mommy’s basement and from behind your keyboard and start spewing your crap personally in public, that means among other human beings you’d get such an ass beating you have to run home and hide under your mommy’s skirt. Or does she wear bib overalls too?

            “What eluding to was Barack Obama Junior wasn’t eligible to run for president in the first place because both his parents were not US citizens.” I’m trying to interpret what you wrote here. “Eluding” means trying to escape from or attempting to avoid something. With that little correction, I shall try to derive sense of what else you wrote. If you know ANYTHING about American History or American Politics, you should know, if a person was born in the Country of The United States, he/she is eligible to run for the presidency. Otherwise Marco Rubio would be ineligible to run, or maybe he doesn’t know that and is running any way. You can’t have everything you want, DW. Facts have to come in somewhere. OK, another small grammatical correction: America is not “and” a death spiral. It’s not IN a death spiral, spelled anyway you want it.
            The major reason we’re in financial trouble is because of wars we waged without paying for them. Let’s see now, who was president when Iraq was illegally invaded? Maybe that was Obama’s fault also, as was the Viet Nam war. Busy little devil, that Obama, right? Oh, and I believe unemployment has decreased during his presidency. Maybe Fox News didn’t cover that. Another grammar correction: “silly idiots like you decide to back the very person That is destroying our country.” The proper phrase should be, “the very person WHO is destroying our country. Either way, it is a lie. Do some fact checking DW.. Overall, things are much better in America than it was at anytime under “Dubya”. I’m not going to break down every stupid accusation you made. And you call ME a “silly twit”! A alittle ironic, don’t you agree?

          45. DW3223 says

            I’ll just give you one more minute of my valuable time before I have to dispense with you you should check not only the first definition of the word but the entire definition. eluding: To fail to be achieved by (someone) now you look like the stupid one, wouldn’t you agree?

          46. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No, I would not agree. Eluding: “to avoid adroitly : to evade”.

            Allude: (Which is the word you were grasping for) To suggest or call attention to indirectly; hint at.

          47. 1EdMeadows83 says

            He was adopted by his Indonesian step father, thus he had Indonesian citizenship and still does…among others. He was a foreign exchange student, that is why he had to seal his records to hide the fact that he is not even a U.S. citizen!

          49. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Do Regressives go to a special school to learn to lie lie this? Barack Obama was NEVER adopted by Lolo Soetoro. His name was NEVER Soetoro. This is a quote from Snopes: “He didn’t. His legal name has always been Barack Hussein Obama, as stated on his birth certificate. When his mother married Lolo Soetoro and moved to Indonesia, there was no formal adoption of young Barack, who often went by the nickname “Barry.”Jan 30, 2016” Can you be still for a while now?

            And by the way I do realize that my grammar and punctuation isn’t exactly correct in this rant it’s just I’m so pissed off I can’t see straight because of idiots like you your not worth the time of day anymore goodbye and have a nice liberal delusional life.

          52. wandamurline says

            Yes, that was the Democratic plan….put a black man in the White House and anyone that disagrees with his agenda and theirs is a racist or bigot…Obama has used his skin pigmentation as a shield and has done it well….if a White President had done the things that Obozo has done, he would have already been impeached, removed from office and put on trial for treason for aiding and abetting our enemies.

          53. Tiger says

            Fact that. Before he was elected Rush and Neil Bortz said big mistake folks, we won’t be able to say anything negative about anything he does he will play the Race card. This is what Hillary will do also. Already does plays the “Girlie Card”.

            Odd people still think he is a Black man. Not one Black man or woman in his family was born in America. Not one of them lived during the MLK years. Not one of them fought for their rights. His people all Muslims. Still this country is buying this and his mother White. But that is not something that he cares to talk about.

          54. tasine says

            Don’t you suppose that is the primary reason the DNC installed him in the White House? They knew they could cow republican politicians by calling them racist and rousing practically the entire black race against them. Poor old Obama thinks he is hot sh** when all the DNC did for him was collar and stake him into their plantation as a useful tool. The DNC uses blacks in the same manner I use my toilet. It’s fine to have around when I need it, when it breaks I call a repairman, but otherwise, it is of no interest to me.

          55. Dennis B Anderson says

            Well thats 2 of us and if we can take the free stuff away from the democrats we might be onto something.

          56. 1EdMeadows83 says

            See? There it is again. “That BLACK pile of crap”! Black always has to be mentioned. However, Clarence Thomas is okie dokie.

          57. Dennis B Anderson says

            Well lets try it again for you color blind. Black is white, left is right when it comes to Obama. Would you feel better of I called this pile of $hit half white half black Hes taking down our country oakie – dokie dummy. Clarence Thomas has nothing to do with Obama turning our country into some 3rd world hell hole.

          58. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I will say one thing. I’m sure Clarence Thomas can spell words correctly. You obviously cannot.

          59. Dennis B Anderson says

            How would a piece of work like you know anyway. Look up anal retard Ill bet people call you this all the time. oakie dokie.

          60. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No, that is a new one, probably because there is no such term, but you did manage to insert a bit of vulgarity into your ignorant post. Congratulations!

          61. Dennis B Anderson says

            Well I think you deserve it anytime FU very much.

          62. 1EdMeadows83 says

            OK, I looked up Anal Retard and got a definition, in the URBAN DICTIONARY as being tired from sitting. It had other vulgar explanations but none actually meant anything. I strongly suspect you meant to write anal-retentive, which is a person who is excessively orderly and fussy. Not actually descriptive of what you meant. What you wanted to do was to throw a bit of vulgarity into what you were trying to say. No, people don’t call me that very much. Just you.

          63. Dennis B Anderson says

            I know what a miticulate person can be like I rent to a few of them. Get a grip now this might sting a bit. This is where your brain power is. What could I expect from a Obama campaigner. Give them a light and a free cell phone and they will follow it anywhere.

          64. 1EdMeadows83 says

            That is about the least intelligent post I have seen on these sites! What the hell is miticulate? The rest of your post is nonsense.

          65. Dennis B Anderson says

            What can you expect from a Obama follower isnt it time for the Good Humor truck go chase that. Ill bet your girl friend would even call you a tease just an irritation. a sport.

          66. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Denny, I really don’t know what you are trying to say but I’ll bet it ain’t good!

          67. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Denny Boy, your stupidity is absolutely breath-taking. If it were not for vulgarity you would almost be speechless. Where did you attend school?

          68. Dennis B Anderson says

            Well Im nobodys boy thats more in your line isnt it? About being speachless dont talk with your mouth full. I think one of the reasons why god created the chimpanze because he was so dissapointed in the likes of you.

          69. 1EdMeadows83 says

            OK. I’ll try to improve your education a bit, as hopeless as it appears. You should have written I’m, not im. You should have written no one’s instead of nobodys. You should have written speechless, not speachless. You should have written God, not god. You should have written chimpanzee, not chimpanze. You should have written disappointed, not dissappointed. You should try to keep away from words with more that 2 syllables and words that require apostrophes. You’re welcome.

          Of course, he’s a Muslim. It’s always Ok to lie to further Alla’s work.

          1. Deborah G says

            Myfeeling is that instead of him vying for his place on the US Supreme court he should retitr to the Middle East and head ISIS. THat would put him where he wants to be to destroy America

          2. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh, so if you say it often enough then it has to be true, even there has been no indication in his past that would indicate that is true. Besides, being a Muslim isn’t the worst thing in the world. Being a Republican is.

          3. chief1937 says

            Your opinion only 1EdMeadows83 and I seriously doubt you have very many knowledgeable people that will agree with you. If you love Muslim’s so much Iran is a great place for you to live with our non-Muslim blessings. You wouldn’t be from New York by any chance would you as they just elected a Muslim Judge.

          4. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Poor chief! I’ll bet yow were the smartest 18 year old in your 4th grade class, weren’t you?

          5. chief1937 says

            Don’t really know about that as I was only 9 who knows maybe I went back and started over but at least I went how about you? I do remember however at 18 I was a member of the United States Navy which you with all your knowledge might call the 4th grade. Try growing up please and act like an adult if you are one that is.

          6. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I’m really surprised you were in the US Navy! A man can get a real education in the military. I know I did. Sometimes, however, it does not take and one can leave the service more ignorant than when he went in!

          7. chief1937 says

            Some outside the military can be more ignorant also don’t think the service it’s self has a whole lot to do with smartness just doing ones duty to defend our nation as messed up as it is.And may I add everyone is entitled to their opinion whether we like it or not.

          8. 1EdMeadows83 says

            chief, I understand now. You went into the Navy instead of attending school. Your writing bears out that fact. Your posts are almost indecipherable. Oh, that means hard to read.

          9. chief1937 says

            If you are unable to comprehend (understand) the english language simply skip over it as you wouldn’t understand anyway.

            Hey Ed, Your poor IQ is showing again.

          11. 1EdMeadows83 says

            It’s obvious that Donald Trump is a transvestite. See? That, of course, is a lie One can make any statement and swear it’s true on these sites. I usually try to make statements that are patently accurate. Regressives don’t seem to care. Obama is not and has never been a Muslim. I think he is secretly an atheist. Most highly intelligent people are. I, for example, am an atheist. OK, I just opened the door fro a flood of stupid responses!

          12. Richard Autry says

            I too am highly intelligent and believe to an accurate degree that your atheism takes more faith to believe in than it does to believe in an all supreme God and his son who was sacrificed on the cross for our redemption.

          13. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Richard, why do you say it takes more faith NOT to believe in God than it does to believe in Him? Faith itself is a word of religion. Non religious people have not faith because, like God, it cannot be proven. I don’t believe Jesus, if he existed at all, was supernatural. I suspect he died on the cross, but then he was dead and existed no longer. The bible itself (The New Testament) was written more than a half-century after the supposed death of Jesus. I have difficulty remembering things that happened 50 years ago and I’ve read countless books. Books were virtually non-existent prior to Mathew, Mark, Luke and John (My namesake). So unless the four were very, very old and of good mental condition. I don’t see how they could write, knowledgeably about a long-dead Jesus. Catholics credit everything they cannot explain to “Miracles”. I also do not believe in miracles. I don’t intend to denigrate religion. My mother was a devout, practicing Methodist. I was raised as a Methodist but I learned, over 60 years ago that religion, itself, is non-existent.

          15. Richard Autry says

            Because a desire to not believe in God takes a strong belief that everything you see, feel, and touch was not made by anything but created itself out of nothingness. That takes a very strong faith that supersedes a belief in a single creator. Or, in the case of all that we see the entity of God the Father, son, and Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:1-3). There is evidence regarding the life of Jesus, exclusive of the Bible; Josephus and a couple of Roman writers of the period. Of course Jesus died on the cross, but His grave was empty. He rose after three days, and that is the foundation of our faith. It is true that the Gospels were written at least a half-century after the fact. However; the stories were all revisited to the writers by the Holy Spirit. Luke personally interviewed as many of the participants he mentioned in his book. Mark wrote his book based on his talking to the apostle, Peter. The fact that the apostles wrote the gospels was a miracle because they were all largely considered by the “educated” people, the Jewish leadership, as illiterate. That was a miracle in itself, that three illiterate people wrote their respective books. I’m a miracle of sorts. When I was 21, I had a stroke, but now possess any of the symptoms of that stroke; L side paralysis, slurred speech, incontinence, etc. In fact, anyone who sees me now largely believes I was normal, whatever that means. I agree with you on one point, a lack of belief in religion. Islam is a religion.

          16. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I don’t believe everything was created from nothingness. I believe it was all created by nature. So if on has to worship a greater power, one should worship nature. I don’t expect you or any other religious person to understand what I am saying, so, to be blunt, I sincerely believe there is NO God, NO Heaven, NO Hell, No Satan, no angels flitting hither and yon and no supernatural Jesus. If you can present to me, absolute proof that these things, these entities exist, then I’ll become a believer, but you cannot, because they don’t.

          1. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Yeah, you Regressives will always come up with the Muslim angle! You’re afraid to say, “That ni***r in the White House”! That would be not be politically correct, so it’s always “The Muslim” or “The Kenyan”. If that won’t sting enough then it’s “That transvestite he’s married to”. You cretins are hopeless and should not be allowed to roam free on our decent streets.

          2. Cecelia Henderson says

            Too much kool aid, Ed? Are you blind to the damage that Obama has done? Try to remember that Obama is not a ni***r, he’s a half breed. He doesn’t fit anywhere. In the beginning I could understand how people wanted “hope and change”, but after 7 years of lies, a poor economy, land grabs, Constitutional violations, law breaking and higher poverty, I thought Americans would see that Mr. Obama is a failure and his “changes” have not been good for America or Americans. It’s not because he’s a half breed, it’s because we picked the wrong African American to lead us.

          3. 1EdMeadows83 says

            “Try to remember that Obama is not a ni***r, he’s a half breed.” So! It’s just the black half you hate?

            OK Sicko, what race have I offended? Do you even know what racism is? I didn’t think so.

          7. Sickofit says

            You’ve offended the white race calling us racist because we don’t agree with what out traitor has done to our country when it had NOTHING to do with race!!

          8. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I haven’t called the white race racists. Only certain members of the white race.
            Sicko, you seem to have a lot to say. Can’t you put it all in one post and stop tying up space with so many stupid posts? I constantly worry about why all you Regressives are so consistently wrong! Maybe you should find another site that is more in keeping with your total ignorance!

          16. 1EdMeadows83 says

            The original Sgt. York is dead. To bad you’re not.

          17. Sgt. York says

            Well pussy cat if you would like to try just let me know but beware I’m not easy

          18. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh I’m sure you’re not! Anyone with a tough name lie Sgt. York is a really, really tough guy,so, I don’t have to try. I, like others, can say whatever i want to on these sites and there’s not a goddamned thing you can do about it.

          19. Sgt. York says

            You are right saying what you want is American. But death wishes are not part of that.

          20. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Ordinarily I would agree with you, but sometime, well, you know!

          21. Emma says

            Ed, Dearest
            I really hope you appreciate how so many here engage in
            dialog just to help brighten your day….help give your life some value.;)
            Now, enjoy a lovely evening..”Dearest”

          22. 1EdMeadows83 says

            If you’re happy, I’m happy, Emma darling.

          23. Emma says

            😉 Truce ? ?

          24. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Wel Emma, as much as I like verbal fisticuffs, I’m willing to have a moratorium if that’s what you want!

          25. Emma says

            Heaven help me!!
            I have rather enjoyed it,
            lol…
            When I am feeling better we may resume if you wish.
            Practice!!
            I will be back 😉

          26. Emma says

            When pigs grow feathers &fly!!!

          27. 1EdMeadows83 says

            It’s safe for you to say that because you know he cannot be re-elected. Too bad.

            What rock did you crawl out from under? Go back into the slime.

          29. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh my! Now you’ve hurt my feelings. I must say, however, that is on of the most intelligent utterings I’ve seen from the Regressives on this site!

          30. John E Strom Jr. says

            Good, now pizzoff like the good leftist turdblossom that you are.

          31. RobertNorwood says

            You and that term “Regressives”. Given the assbackward nature of “Progressives” I imagine we’re to take that as a compliment…
            Jeezus, and Hillary…man you can’t make her schit up.

          32. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I’m not sure, Bobby, but I don’t think you quite understand what progressive means. I don’t have the time to educate you now, but I would suggest you check out Wikipedia. It’s sort of an encyclopedia that you can access on your computer. I think it’s obvious that you have a rudimentary knowledge of computers, at least how to turn one on and tap out words, one finger at a time on the keyboard. Keyboard, that’s the contraption that looks sorta like a typewriter. Anyway, “Progressive” is more than that Insurance Company that features that pretty brunette, “Flo”. We ain’t that Progressive. We’re the progressive that wants to improve conditions in the US and make lives better for all the people we can. Progressive means to move things forward. Regressive, as you may be beginning to understand, means to slow things down to the point where they move backward. You get it now? Democrats (Liberals) are Progressives while Republicans (Conservatives) are Regressives. Now go to the blackboard and write, “Progressive, YES, Regressive, NO.

          33. worn out 123 says

            Progressive = Democrat = Socialist = Communist. First up — the takeover of the healthcare industry, to be followed with the nationalization of all U.S. Industry. The racist, tyrannical, democrat party of today. Thanks Comrade 1EdM, but, No Thanks. You cannot have our inalienable rights. You cannot outlaw cheap, reliable energy. You cannot use government agencies to harass your political opponents. You cannot lie, lie, and lie some more and expect to establish your tyrannical government in America, although you just might at that.

          34. 1EdMeadows83 says

            So, if yous cram a bunch of adjectives together you have to eventually come up with one the describes what you have to say. Just as if you give a bunch of Orangutans a bunch of typewriters they’ll eventually write War and Peace. Congratulations! You’re one of the Orangutans! The rest of your post is pure pap, so I’ll not bother commenting on that.

          35. worn out 123 says

            A weak argument is better than none, I suppose.

          36. John E Strom Jr. says

            So shy flap your gums about it? People are sick of this cretin

          37. 1EdMeadows83 says

            “shy flap my gums”? I’m not sure what you mean.

          38. John E Strom Jr. says

            Sorry, typo. Meant to say “why flap your gums”

          39. Sickofit says

            That’s all Ed has John is gums!!
            He probably doesn’t have any teeth left!!! He certainly is a cretin!!
            A dinosaur!! Who’s crazy!! LOL!

          40. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh Sicko! You try and you try, but you can’t quite meet the standards of an intelligent person.

          41. Sickofit says

            Thank God!!! He’s done enough destruction!!
            Of course with more voter fraud it could be possible. I don’t put anything past those lying, cheating democrats!!
            That includes you Ed!!

          42. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Sicko, when did I lie and when did I cheat?

          43. Sickofit says

            When the democrats rigged the last election!

          44. 1EdMeadows83 says

            How did they do that, Sicko?

          45. Sickofit says

            Get my name right grandpa! Put your bifocals on!! It’s SICK OF IT!!!
            Meaning sick of your stupid liberal bullshit!!
            You have no sense! You’re just an insane old man! Have a nice life… What’s left of it!!! HAHAHAHA!!

          46. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh gee! I guess I offended you! Well, that was my intent. Thanks for letting me know I succeeded.

          47. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh gee! I guess I offended you! Well, that was my intent. Thanks for letting me know I succeeded. Yeah, I’m old and I hope it never happens to you!

          48. Sickofit says

            To your dismay , you didn’t offend me. I’m not a whiny democrat that gets me feelings hurt every time somebody says something …
            So how about you just go fuck off??
            I’m done with your stupid ignorant ass!! Buh bye gramps!!!

          49. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Yeah, I can tell you aren’t offended! You went into a rant when I called you Sicko instead of Sickofit! Your problem is that you can’t tell when you are outmatched. I’m much smarter than you and you know it but don’t know how to compensate. The best thing for you to do is to quit trying. You’ll never win.

          50. Sickofit says

            Outmatched?? What a laugh!! YOU could never outmatch me. Doesn’t your dumbass see how outnumbered you are in this site?? YOU ARE A TOTAL LOON!!!
            Yeah gramps intelligence can never win over stupid , greedy , ignorant blubbering idiots like you!!! You are so fucking stupid, I can’t even stand it anymore.. Can’t wait for Isis to come & kill your dumb ass!!!
            I’m done with you. Buh bye asshole!!!?

          51. 1EdMeadows83 says

            So long, you vulgar moron.

          52. Emma says

            Wasn’t elected before. It was illegally INSTALLED.

          53. 1EdMeadows83 says

            What are you talking about, Emma Dear? What wasn’t elected? What was “it” that was illegally installed. It’s OK to copy the Regressives but they often make more sense than this.

          54. Susan Short says

            Ed, I feel sorry for you, I truly do, but some day you will get it. Unfortunately, you will probably have to learn the hard way, like most Americans will. If Obama could run for 6 more terms, and he got elected elected every time, does that change the truth about him?! Does that mean that he is a great president?! I’ll let you see if you can figure that out on your own!

          55. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Suzie, don’t feel sorry for me. I bask in the knowledge that I am always right!
            “does that change the truth about him?” Absolutely not! I’m not exactly sure of the point you are trying to make. He won’t be elected 6 more terms, but that does not preclude him from being one of America’s great presidents. I would not say that If I weren’t sure that other great minds agree with me. Only the Regressives believe he has been a failure as president. If you want to be included in a list of ignorant people, that is your prerogative. And so, I must feel sorry for you and the other poor devils who think as you do.

          56. Susan Short says

            You’re always right, Ed? That’s great! I sure wish that I was as smart as you! Enough for the sarcasm now. You have resorted to the typical liberal playbook of telling people that they are stupid, ignorant, etc. You say that “other great minds” agree with you? Well, I don’t know know who those “great minds” are, nor do I really care. I care what God thinks, and what He says in his Word! You say that Obama is one of America’s great presidents? Well, that is something that human beings can and will argue about for quite some time to come. The only opinion, however, that really means anything to me is what God thinks. In the final analysis, what you think, what I think, or what anybody else thinks does not matter. I have a peace that you do not know, because it is not based on man’s wisdom, which is foolishness in the sight of God! When you seek God’s wisdom, then you will truly be wise!

          57. 1EdMeadows83 says

            “I sure wish that I was as smart as you!” So do many Regressives, Suzie, so do many Regressives! I tell people they’re stupid and ignorant only when they’re stupid and ignorant. I believe Forrest Gump had something to say about stupid. Of course you don’t care what great minds say, because you obviously don’t have one of those great minds so you parrot what other Regressives say. Suzie, that is not always a good thing to do.
            Which “God” are you referring to? Zeus, Thor, Allah, Jupiter etc, etc. They, like the God many people worship today, don’t exist anymore. Christianity is a continuance of the superstition of religion, so how do you expect intelligent people to take you seriously? “The only opinion, however, that really means anything to me is what God thinks”. So you actually have no opinion because God doesn’t exist.

          58. Susan Short says

            This will be my last response to you, Ed, and it will be a respectful one, unlike the way you speak to people. I do truly feel sorry for you, not because you don’t agree with me, because that doesn’t hurt me at all, and there is nothing that you could say to me that would hurt my feelings. The reason I feel sorry for you is because the God I speak of is the one and only true God, the God of the Bible. You say that God does not even exist?! Well Ed. you tell that to God when your day of judgement comes, as it will, and LOL with that!

          59. NotJim says

            “unlike the way you speak to people.”

            Agreed.

            I am an atheist, but Ed does not speak for me.

          60. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Notty, I speak for me, not all atheists. Some atheists I can’t stand. They’re often Republicans.

          61. Sickofit says

            Ed will burn in hell! Guaranteed of that!!

          62. chief1937 says

            That is conditional and true unless he repents.

          63. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh! Now you’ve got me scared spitless!

          64. chief1937 says

            Very well stated Susan now the ball is in his court you did your part by stating truth.There will come a day he will remember your words even if it is too late.

          65. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh my goodness! All hail the Reverend Dr. Chief!

          66. ABO says

            He has absolutely nothing constructive to contribute, Susan, only dimwitted insults and narcissistic claptrap.

          67. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Why is it necessary to contribute something to Conservative sites such as this absurd collection of fiction? I’m not your Rabbi. I am a man who gets on stupid sites like this for the sole purpose of antagonizing the creatures who abide here!

          68. ABO says

            Well, you must be so proud that you have amounted to nothing more than an annoying, brainless, pathetic troll. Good job ed.

          69. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh No, ABO! You misunderstand complexly! I lead a full life. I retired 25 years ago so I have lots of time to spend with my daughter, my granddaughter and my great-grandson, but that’s not my full life. I love to travel. I can get into my car and drive for 200 miles in any direction (Well, not 200 miles to the West, then I’d be way out in the ocean) but there are many things to see within 200 miles. Or, I can get on an airplane (for free) and fly to anywhere in the US. I could also fly to Mexico but I’ve been there, done that.
            But if I’m sitting around, doing nothing I do love to get on my computer and go on some cretinous political site and piss the denizens off. That does, indeed, give me a lot of satisfaction, primarily because I can anticipate most of the responses. A lot of them are from poorly educated creatures who always make the attempt to shame me into admitting I’m unhappy. Like you ABO, like you!

          70. ABO says

            For someone with so many wonderful things to do to keep busy you seem to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to piss off us denizens of this cretinous political site, I drove into town from my lofty home in the boonies yesterday and several hours later return to find not one or even two but nine of your tantrums awaiting my immediate attention on my disqus notification app. It would appear that you do little more with your time than to get yourself all pissed off at me , the denizen you’re here to piss off. Here’s a suggestion ed, why don’t you jump in your little car and drive 200 miles to the west of your current location. You might not enjoy it much but I expect lots of others would.

          71. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Congratulations! I wondered who would be the first to suggest that trip! It doesn’t take a whole lot of time to excoriate you people. Why, some of you almost write my responses for me. So you had nine of my responses. You’re one of the lucky ones. Why don’t you copy them all and put them in a book. I’ll bet you could sell it. Now, here’s a suggestion for you. Don’t address your hateful screeds to me and I won’t respond to them. Seems to be a simple answer to your massive problem.

          72. ABO says

            Sorry to burst your bubble ed, but it was just an afterthought. You certainly seem to have a tremendously high opinion of yourself for one of such low intellect. I believe that condition is commonly known as narcissism, ed. It’s a form of mental illness. Might want to see someone about that.

          73. 1EdMeadows83 says

            ABO, I think you are probably old enough (chronologically) to know one can put anything on these pages and there is always some numbskull who accepts it as fact. I don’t have an extremely high or an extremely low intellect. It’s about average. However I also know it’s higher than that of those average numbskulls who usually frequent these sites. I have to be very careful of what I write because I know the cretins are just waiting for me to make a mistake in gram,mar or spelling. It happens. I’m not perfect and I never miss an opportunity to correct those failings in the posts of others. So whatever anyone says to disparage me I just let roll off me like water off a duck. So when you say I have “such low intellect, I just say, “Ho Hum”.

          74. ABO says

            Ya I know, you just gotta watch that “gram,mar” and of course the spelling. I’m with ya ed.

          75. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I think I said in my post that I’m not perfect. However, I can take pride in forcing you to be on the lookout for errors. I’ll make a Democrat out of you yet!

          76. ABO says

            Forcing me to be on the lookout for errors. Like I said previously, ed, you take yourself far, far too seriously. you really should try to get over it.

          77. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Yeah, yeah. Whatever you say. Most of the people reading this would agree with you. Of course most of the people reading this are not very bright.

          78. ABO says

            Typical. Narcissists believe themselves to be far superior to those around them. Just sayin’ ed.

          79. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No, No! I don’t believe I am superior to you. I KNOW I am superior to you. Why? Because I am a Democrat.

          80. ABO says

            Your assessment is flawed and the fact that you are a Democrat simply indicates your ability to think for yourself, that you are a lemming.

          81. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Now ABO, read your post. You actually said the fact that I am a Democrat indicates my ability to think for myself. I agree, then you reverse course and say I am a lemming. Very confusing and very poor sentence structure.

          82. ABO says

            That would be your inability to think for yourself, ed.

          83. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I think you have a few functioning brain cells left in an operative condition, so i think you know I think for myself and that’s what drives you Regressives up the wall!! By the way, couldn’t you express your simple thoughts in one post and not feel it necessary to place each pathetic bon mot in a separate post?

          84. ABO says

            It seems the thing to do, ed. You keep coming back for more even though you insist that you are far superior and unaffected by my inferiority. Are you simply confused or just promoting an invalid theory?

          85. 1EdMeadows83 says

            The fact that you have to ask is an indication of why I think I am superior.,

          86. ABO says

            An earthworm would be offended at the thought of you claiming to be superior to it, ed.

          87. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I haven’t read anything by you for several days. It must have taken that long for you to think up that clever retort.

          88. ABO says

            Requires little thought, ed. You provide the stupid remarks and it just flows. Just the fact that you think yourself superior to anyone is tremendously entertaining.

          89. 1EdMeadows83 says

            You are very fortunate that something requires “little thought”! Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to have a coherent thought at all!

          90. ABO says

            Give it up, ed. The more you say, the more you prove to everyone who reads it what a complete moron you really are. We can all picture you sitting drooling on your keyboard with your eyes crossed. Good job, ed.

          91. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Well abo, You are living proof (Assuming you are alive) that stupid people don’t realize they’re stupid. Let’s have a withering comeback now!

          92. ABO says

            It is truly amazing to me that anyone could live in this world for 83 years( as you claim you have) and still be entirely incapable of thinking for themselves. When is started reading the comments here, I had to assume that you were some idiotic, dope smoking parasite living in your mommy’s basement. Then you said you were 83, retired and so forth and I was shocked. I still tend to believe my first assessment was correct but at any rate you have proved yourself far too delusional and clueless to bother responding to. I expect that you will make up some story that you have simply been responding to my attacks on you but anyone who has been following this thread knows better. Good day and good luck surviving your “retirement” in Mommy’s basement.

          93. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Apparently you have a problem with reading or with comprehending what you read, not an unusual affliction for a Regressive. I have not said I was 83 years old since I was 83 years old. You seem to have a fascination with me so you should know that I wrote in a previous post that I have never even smelled marijuana. I don’t see anything wrong with that, it’s just that I never partook in the practice.
            Because you think I am delusional and “clueless”, I guess I am supposed to be crushed and apprehensive, but for some strange reason I am completely unmoved, probably for the same reason I am unmoved by the babbling of a child or an inebriated, self-hating person. Everything you write is written with the intention of belittling someone, in this case, me. You would be amazed at how many intelligent people have been dismayed by what I write, so I am expected to be concerned by what you painfully conjure up and put in a ridiculous post? It ain’t gonna happen, abo.

          94. ABO says

            So you’re admitting your narcissism. That’s a step in the right direction, ed. but the anger and tantrums will elevate your blood pressure. Try to calm down and act your age,ed, please. Don’t want you to keel over or anything.

          95. 1EdMeadows83 says

            If you believe all Democrats are narcissists, then yes, in your eyes I’m a narcissist. I believe all Republicans are morons. Does that make it so?

          96. ABO says

            I said nothing about Democrats being narcissistic, ed. I said YOU are a narcissist. You have proved that beyond any reasonable doubt right here on this thread.

          97. 1EdMeadows83 says

            “So you’re admitting your narcissism.” To me that’s calling me a narcissistic. But I don’t car If knowing I’m better than any Regressive is narcissistic then so be it. The original Narcissus thought he was the most beautiful man alive and he stared at his reflection for hours until he turned into a flower. I’ll be the first to tell you that I am not so beautiful. Actually narcissism is a misnomer. The word should be conceit But is it conceit to know one is more intelligent than the creatures who frequent these pages?

          98. ABO says

            Well, it is apparent that you don’t know yourself as well as you think you do. You think yourself superior to “creatures” like me yet you have allowed me to lead you entirely off your original course and away from your unending prose on the subject of this thread. Do you even remember what that was, eddie?

          99. 1EdMeadows83 says

            What what was? 😉

          100. ABO says

            Brilliant response, ed. ” What what was?” Just what I’d expect from you. Well done.

          101. Frankiev says

            You’re two idiots Killery and Washerwoman-Schultz could not tell their favorite libnut PMSNBC host what the difference was between a socialist and a liberal. Real smart Dims, like you. Wowiedoodle Edbird.

          102. 1EdMeadows83 says

            You call that time “The Day Of Judgement”. I call it Death, when one’s heart stops beating and one’s brain stops functioning. The book of life closes, and as with all great stories, the two words appear, “The End”, and the book closes. Of course you can wish, or, as you call it, believe whatever you want to. Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’ll stop breathing and wake up in Heaven, but that thought seem preposterous to me!

          103. 1EdMeadows83 says

          104. Sickofit says

            Ha!! You have got to be kidding?!?!
            Greatest president??? What a laugh!!
            If you think open borders, letting all of these ILLEGALS in here is good for America, you’re NUTS!! Then let’s just let all of the Syrian terrorist in here, which we have to foot the bill for, as well as support all of the illegals!! Which we can’t afford.. Oh yeah how about 19 trillion in debt?? That good too?? How about unemployment? It looks down but that’s because half of the work force STOPPED LOOKING!! So unemployment is thru the roof! Obamacare, yeah that’s a good one too!! How many people were promised they could keep their doctor?? LIE!! How about everyone’s premiums going through the roof?? How about people that lost their insurance?? How about if you don’t have insurance, we will tax your ass??? That’s just a start of what this race baiting, anti-American Muslim president has done!! If you think America is better off now, you are probably one living off other people’s coat tails.. LOSER!!

          105. 1EdMeadows83 says

            “race baiting, anti-American Muslim”! Come on Sicky, what do you really think?

          106. Sickofit says

            I just told ya! Go back to your bottle, pills or marijuana or whatever you’re on & sink back into your coma!

          107. Sickofit says

            Why didn’t you answer back to my post about what a POS Obama is???
            Because you have nothing!!
            He’s a scum sucking cock sucker .. Just like you!!

          108. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Because that would be about as dumb as explaining why elephants have gossamer wings. It just ain’t true Sicko.

All I need to make me content is for people like you and other denizens of this cesspool to grow angry and bitter over what I write. I could do this all day!

            I actually meant to delete that post.
            Why?
            Because for some reason I don’t believe what I posted.

            I am 87 years old so I pre-date all the so-called recreational drugs. I did take Desoxyn Hydro Chloride tabs when i was in college and working full time because I thought I needed the help in concentrating. When I graduated from one tab to two, I decided I didn’t need them after all. I’ve never taken anything stronger than aspirin since.

            So, you’re saying it’s all the result of mental illness???

          133. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Did I say that? I didn’t know I said that.

          134. ABO says

            You eliminated the other options and since your mental illness is fairly obvious, I would have to make that assumption.

          135. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No ABO. Your assumption, as usual, is incorrect. I eliminated no option. I merely said I partook of a few energy pills when I was young. It’s frustrating to try to understand your gibberish then try to treat you like an adult. Very frustrating.

          136. ABO says

            My response was short and simple but apparently not simple enough for you to understand it, ed. Perhaps you should read it again or better yet have someone read it to you.

          141. Sickofit says

            I think not! The last election was rigged! Nobody in their right mind would vote for him again after what he’s done to America!!! He would like to think he could win a third term but that’s just because he’s so damn arrogant!!!

          142. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I guess it was rigged because your candidate didn’t win. Could it be that President Obama got more votes than Mitt Romney? That’s usually the case, the candidate who gets the most votes usually wins. Of course, that was not the case in 2000, now was it?

          143. Sickofit says

            You don’t read too well now do ya?? I said the second election was rigged!! He won the first one with the ” lets elect a black president to show we aren’t prejudice ” mentality along with his lies & empty promises. The second time around a lot of Americans woke up!! Evidently you didn’t..
            Duh asshole! Dead people voted twice!! Do the math you retard!

          144. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Why would anyone think you are a prejudice? OH, now I get it. You meant to write prejudiced. My bad. Oh, and the election results: 2012, 332 Electoral votes for Obama – 206 Electoral votes for Romney and Ryan. 2008, 365 Electoral votes for Obama – 173 Electoral votes for McCain & (hee hee) Sarah Palin! Care to venture a guess why McCain did so much worse than Romney? 😉

          145. Miriam Farnum says

            I left rules to all my family and friends….. when I’m dead, make DAMN sure I don’t vote for a Democrat!!!!

            I don’t think you have to worry about that, simple Miriam!

          147. rocky says

            I am so grateful that we have term limits on this office… and wish we had them on so many other elective offices. Think about it… problems solved.

          148. chief1937 says

            That depends entirely on who counts the votes.

          149. RobertNorwood says

            Not likely. While many won’t admit it there’s a sense even the walking dead are ready for him to go and do what ever, like host a late night talk show or talent venue – Dancing With The Stars still going? Lots of blacks admit – he ain’t done that much, they’re not better off – no one is except illegals.
            But one never knows with black voters. Color is important, they’d vote for a kangaroo if it was black. I mean schit, they elected Maxine Waters besides an IQ of 40 she’s flat out crazy. OJ be available – but they’ll have to wait a number of years.

          150. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Yeah, I get it. You have a point, but if you keep your hat on, no one will notice. Of course your point is, Black people are stupid and are fit to be no more than servants to white people. You say, “Lots of Blacks admit he ain’t done that much” I haven’t heard any blacks say that. I haven’t heard anyone with a modicum of intelligence say that. Just Regressives. Maxine Waters is the duly elected Congresswoman for Torrance, CA. She is one of the leaders of this nation. What are you?

          151. RobertNorwood says

            ” Black people are stupid…fit to be, etc., etc.” You said that, not me, I simply pointed out a truth.
            If black Americans have done so well under Obama please point that out. They are more socially and culturally isolated than ever, more and more they told the big lie… it’s white people who are holding them back while more and more they just go backwards towards depency rather than self reliance. Uh huh…
            Black Felons Lives matter but a nine year old girl gets killed during one of the many shoot outs in black neighborhoods and that never gets mentioned. Black leaders, movements, etc. are like pimps – they use regular black folks, tell them lies, because those folks believe there is nothing else. It’s about power and money, not about lives. It it were black Americans would be better of.

          152. 1EdMeadows83 says

            What you have written is wrong from beginning to end. Black people, as are ALL people much better under the leadership of President Obama than they ever were under either of the Bushes. I’m not going to offer you a lesson in American Civics because, A. You’d never believe it and, B You are too stupid to understand it. Other than that, I see no reason to continue this argument with someone as feckless as you obviously are. Feckless. Look it up!

          153. RobertNorwood says

            Better off in what way, lip service? Sure he put a very “black” look on things like appointments however, that is no more an indication of how people are doing than a bill board depicting people enjoying a Coke.
            My school system required civics as early as grade school. I grew up knowing black folks, was an early supporter of civil rights, worked for the Urban League of Eastern Mass. so I have some sense of what black Americans have had to deal with. Welfare, food stamps, and talk are no replacement for meaningful work, jobs, a good education, values and a father in the home; none of which has Obama addressed.

            I haven’t seen anyone but the bigot racist Ed bring up the NCAA word or call Obama a Muslim on here. Typical libitard, always bring up the race card when they have absolutely nothing in their head but air.

            “We picked” as in YOU voted for him? Yeah, right!

            I can only imagine how outraged you were under W and his multiple train wrecks. 9/11, Iraq, two wars, the Housing Bubble, the global economy disaster, Katrina.

            All of Obama’s mistakes combined don’t add up to just Iraq. He’s playing with house money and you know it.

          163. Made_in_the_USA says

            Do some research: bHo is 50% white, 44% arab (from Kenya), and 6% black. His alleged father and step-father were both muslim, he was raised muslim in Indonesia…. It just seems to be in lockstep with all the non-documentation we don’t have on this imposter in our White House.

          164. rocky says

            And taking all that in to consideration… Just how did this accident of nature get into the white house ?? Baffles me… until I look at the voting population.

          165. Emma says

            Was not elected, he was installed to do exactly what he has done & continues to do.
            Our own govt was complicit.

          166. Sickofit says

            Yeah the voting population….a bunch of uninformed entitled greedy, lazy assholes!! I see what you mean!

          167. 1EdMeadows83 says

            In other words, there are no black Arabs? No, dummy, Barack Obama Sr. was totally black, Ann Dunham was totally white. Their offspring, Barack Obama, Jr. is half white and half black. You should have learned in grade school that black & white are not nationalities! Oh, and he was NEVER raised as a Muslim. Do your own research. I’ve done mine. You might start with Dreams From My Father and graduate to The Audacity of Hope.

          168. Billy says

            Ed, to start with, Barry Soetoro WAS raised a Muslim and is STILL a Muslim. He just lies about it. You did your own research by reading what Barry Soetoro had written about himself ? Seriously, Ed ??? That’s the work you researched ? REALLY ?

          169. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No Billy Boy, I’ve read much more than that. I just thought you, being so ignorant, might start with those books. Then you might discover a few facts. I know “Fact” is a term you’re not familiar with, but it basically means “True Statement” One fact you would learn rather quickly is that President Obama is not, nor has he ever been a Muslim. His mother was careful not to let that happen. You are giving further proof of your ignorance every time yo make a stupid statement like that. Listen to someone besides Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. I know I could never convince you to watch MSNBC, but you might try a few of the old standbys like NBC, CBS and especially PBS.

          170. Sgt. York says

            Remove head from ass and smell the Muslim roses named ovomit. If the political winds were to blow away from me I would be Muslim,in his own book

          171. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh, it had to happen! People like you can’t resist bringing vulgarity and stupid names for Our President. You’re not worth responding to.

          172. Sickofit says

            Pot calling the kettle??
            You’ve done NOTHING but call people names! Grow up grandpa!

          173. 1EdMeadows83 says

            why would a PIT call a KETTLE? Doesn’t make a lot of sense Sicko. I can’t be your grandpa. My daughter is married.

          174. Sickofit says

            Didn’t say PIT grandpa, put your fucking bifocals back on!! Said POT!!! You are such a loser!! No wonder the USA is going under with dipshits like you voting!!

          175. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Ah yes! Ain’t the correction feature of a keyboard wonderful? You know you wrote pit and I know you wrote pit. That’s all that matters.

          176. chief1937 says

            Your facts are a little off ED as our president talking on TV stated his roots as muslim. His words not mine. I have noticed however you do play a little loosely with truth and facts.

          177. 1EdMeadows83 says

            NO, NO, NO chiefy! President Obama has NEVER said he has Muslim roots. Barack Obama Sr. was not a Muslim, He was an atheist, as am I. Obama attended an Indonesian school for a while until his mother pulled him out and home-schooled him. He moved to Hawaii when he was ten to live with his grandparents who were from Wichita, KS, not exactly a hotbed of Islam at that time. I strongly suspect President Obama is an atheist. Many, many intelligent and educated people are, but Americans are too stupid to support an atheist. Why won’t you ignorant Regressives ever do a little research? Then you wouldn’t expose yourselves to such ridicule. Do you have a computer? It has Wikipedia. It’s amazing how much knowledge one can accrue just by reading!

          178. chief1937 says

            BULL only answer to your rant.

          179. Sickofit says

            Ed is an old fogey that is losing his mind! Pay him no attention ?

          180. DW3223 says

            Barack Obama Sr. was totally black, And citizen of Kenya.

          181. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No one is denying that, DW.

          182. Dennis B Anderson says

            Well I have said that here and was thrown off the site. Be KOOL! HA-HA-HA
            He is a muslim he has even said so after claiming he is at the time of his first election a god fearing christian. I never voted for him did you? I didnt buy into that Oh yew we can crap. The woman who was coming here from Hawaii to settle Obamas birth certificate just so happened to die in a 6 seater cessena off the shores of Maui. Everyone swam away but her she drowned and apparently she went down in the plane at a depth they cant retreive the monoplane? Kind of interesting just like the Justice dying of natural causes with a pillow over his face?
            Joan Rivers was making noise about Mikeshele being a transvestite. She went in for a slam dunk surgery and never came out. I have signed, donated got the message out on what I have heard. Obama and his entire administration should be behind bars. Then there is the grim reaper who has just said that she has converted to Islam. Her & Huma walk around in matching Berkas to show the love they have for one another. They belong behind bars. About Obama being a Ni-er
            well hes all of that and so much more. I think the majority of intelegent people want the same thing this treasonous traitor race baiter, muslim terrorist america hating, malatto behind bars for aiding & abeding our enemies and setting them free. The ones he set free with the Bergdahl swap were given $30,000.00 cash per each taliban terrorist and a jet ride to Yemen. Allah Akbar brothers they mentioned today one of them is on the radio advocating trouble & violence for the USA. Others have gone back to the fighting also. Have you weighed in on your states gun laws.Obama has done everything he possibly can to get our guns away from us. When he does this its the end of America. Its Germany 1939 all over again. They arent making box cars with chains & bracelets for nothing out at FMC Portland.
            A friend of my sons said he seen this first hand. They dont have those Fema camps set up for nothing. Dont you think it strange that the republicans are letting Obama get away with with this stuff. Paul Ryan used to talk out of the other side of his face than he does now. It was the reason he was picked for his job. Theres alot more going on besides a n-ger in the white house. Hes just a sprinkling for the May Queen. I grew up in Los Angeles during the Watts riots. I was still around for Denny & King when he said = Cant we just all get along? Ill give any man the benifit of the doubt one time. If you walk through my door un invited its your life.

          183. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I’ve often questioned just how ignorant a human can be. You have pretty well answered that question. It’s obvious that your education is seriously lacking. Of course, now you’ll tell us that your IQ is 180., That is, if you can spell IQ correctly. I doubt that you were thrown off this site. However I was banned from posting anything on Breitbart News. Life just ain’t fair!

          184. Dennis B Anderson says

            Well Ill bet they had to add your IQ 3 times before it would bust 2 digits. Blame it
            on the milk man. I could tell you 180 but Ill bet you couldnt count to 10 mutt head even with your shoes off.

          185. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh God! You are living proof that stupid people don’t realize just how stupid they are! And there are those like you who never give up and continually slip deeper and deeper into the morass of ignorance!

          186. Vassiliki says

            You are just spewing hate and have not disputed one thing that Dennis B Anderson stated. If what was not stated as true by Mr. Anderson then go ahead and refute it with facts.

          187. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Vassi, if you want to be lumped in with ignoramuses like Dennie Anderson, go right ahead. He made accusations against President Obama that are patently false so the proof is incumbent upon him and other who think like he.

          188. Jerry DeRoche says

            Oh boy now you pissed me off. Where the hell are you from. Obama is the worst leader ever!!! I’m at a loss for words what do you say to someone that’s so damn dumb. Drag your head out of your ass. Damn you can’t fix STUPID!!!

          189. S.D.Roberts says

            Jerry don’t let Eddy rent space in your head. He’s morally bankrupt. Undoubtedly he’s going to support either Bernie the socialist (because socialism has always worked out really well for every other country that tried it) or Killary, the newly proclaimed Muslim lesbian(because women and homosexuals are so welcomed and embraced by idiotslamists and the kookooran).

          190. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Jerry Baby, don’t take my word for it. Read what other intellectuals believe:
            “America’s intellectual class seems to adore President Barack Obama nearly as much as it reviled his predecessor. While George W. Bush was routinely derided for his purported lack of intelligence and learning, Obama has been embraced by the intellectuals as one of their own — to a degree unmatched by any president since perhaps Woodrow Wilson. Indeed, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof spoke for many when he argued after the 2008 election that “American voters have just picked a president who is an open, out-of-the-closet, practicing intellectual.” Rebecca Mead of the New Yorker even sought to make it official, calling Obama a “certified intellectual.””
            Of course you’ll disagree with this. That is incumbent among non-intellectuals.

          191. Vassiliki says

            First of all my name isn’t Vassi. You need to dispute his facts with facts. All you do is call people names and say how grest Barry Sotero is without stating any facts. If they are false prove it.

          192. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Well Vassi, You asked for it. Here it is:

            Obama’s Top 50 Accomplishments

            FacebookTwitterDiggRedditStumbleUponDelicious

            (Also check out the main article, The Incomplete Greatness of Barack Obama, and the issue’s Editor’s Note.)

            Actually there’s another site that lists 350 accomplishments President Obama has done, but I rather doubt that you’ll make it through these 50..

            1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.

            2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

            3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.

            4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

            5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.

            6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

            7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the GM stock it still owns increases.

            8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

            9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.

            10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost.

            11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on February 11.

            12. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain “enhanced” interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions. Also released the secret Bush legal rulings supporting the use of these techniques.

            13. Improved America’s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent.

            14. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans. Starting July 2010 all students began getting their federal student loans directly from the federal government. Treasury will save $67 billion over ten years, $36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students.

            15. Created Race to the Top: With funds from stimulus, started $4.35 billion program of competitive grants to encourage and reward states for education reform.

            16. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025.

            17. Coordinated International Response to Financial Crisis: To keep world economy out of recession in 2009 and 2010, helped secure from G-20 nations more than $500 billion for the IMF to provide lines of credit and other support to emerging market countries, which kept them liquid and avoided crises with their currencies.

            18. Passed Mini Stimuli: To help families hurt by the recession and spur the economy as stimulus spending declined, signed series of measures (July 22, 2010; December 17, 2010; December 23, 2011) to extend unemployment insurance and cut payroll taxes.

            19. Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.

            20. Increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.

            21. Tightened Sanctions on Iran: In effort to deter Iran’s nuclear program, signed Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (2010) to punish firms and individuals who aid Iran’s petroleum sector. In late 2011 and early 2012, coordinated with other major Western powers to impose sanctions aimed at Iran’s banks and with Japan, South Korea, and China to shift their oil purchases away from Iran.

            22. Created Conditions to Begin Closing Dirtiest Power Plants: New EPA restrictions on mercury and toxic pollution, issued in December 2011, likely to lead to the closing of between sixty-eight and 231 of the nation’s oldest and dirtiest coal-fired power plants. Estimated cost to utilities: at least $11 billion by 2016. Estimated health benefits: $59 billion to $140 billion. Will also significantly reduce carbon emissions and, with other regulations, comprises what’s been called Obama’s “stealth climate policy.”

            23. Passed Credit Card Reforms: Signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act (2009), which prohibits credit card companies from raising rates without advance notification, mandates a grace period on interest rate increases, and strictly limits overdraft and other fees.

            24. Eliminated Catch-22 in Pay Equality Laws: Signed Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, giving women who are paid less than men for the same work the right to sue their employers after they find out about the discrimination, even if that discrimination happened years ago. Under previous law, as interpreted by the Supreme Court in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., the statute of limitations on such suits ran out 180 days after the alleged discrimination occurred, even if the victims never knew about it.

            25. Protected Two Liberal Seats on the U.S. Supreme Court: Nominated and obtained confirmation for Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic and third woman to serve, in 2009; and Elena Kagan, the fourth woman to serve, in 2010. They replaced David Souter and John Paul Stevens, respectively.

            26. Improved Food Safety System: In 2011, signed FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, which boosts the Food and Drug Administration’s budget by $1.4 billion and expands its regulatory responsibilities to include increasing number of food inspections, issuing direct food recalls, and reviewing the current food safety practices of countries importing products into America.

            27. Achieved New START Treaty: Signed with Russia (2010) and won ratification in Congress (2011) of treaty that limits each country to 1,550 strategic warheads (down from 2,200) and 700 launchers (down from more than 1,400), and reestablished and strengthened a monitoring and transparency program that had lapsed in 2009, through which each country can monitor the other.

            28. Expanded National Service: Signed Serve America Act in 2009, which authorized a tripling of the size of AmeriCorps. Program grew 13 percent to 85,000 members across the country by 2012, when new House GOP majority refused to appropriate more funds for further expansion.

            29. Expanded Wilderness and Watershed Protection: Signed Omnibus Public Lands Management Act (2009), which designated more than 2 million acres as wilderness, created thousands of miles of recreational and historic trails, and protected more than 1,000 miles of rivers.

            30. Gave the FDA Power to Regulate Tobacco: Signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (2009). Nine years in the making and long resisted by the tobacco industry, the law mandates that tobacco manufacturers disclose all ingredients, obtain FDA approval for new tobacco products, and expand the size and prominence of cigarette warning labels, and bans the sale of misleadingly labeled “light” cigarette brands and tobacco sponsorship of entertainment events.

            31. Pushed Federal Agencies to Be Green Leaders: Issued executive order in 2009 requiring all federal agencies to make plans to soften their environmental impacts by 2020. Goals include 30 percent reduction in fleet gasoline use, 26 percent boost in water efficiency, and sustainability requirements for 95 percent of all federal contracts. Because federal government is the country’s single biggest purchaser of goods and services, likely to have ripple effects throughout the economy for years to come.

            32. Passed Fair Sentencing Act: Signed 2010 legislation that reduces sentencing disparity between crack versus powder cocaine possessionfrom100 to1 to 18 to1.

            33. Trimmed and Reoriented Missile Defense: Cut the Reagan-era “Star Wars” missile defense budget, saving $1.4 billion in 2010, and canceled plans to station antiballistic missile systems in Poland and the Czech Republic in favor of sea-based defense plan focused on Iran and North Korea.

            34. Began Post-Post-9/11 Military Builddown: After winning agreement from congressional Republicans and Democrats in summer 2011 budget deal to reduce projected defense spending by $450 billion, proposed new DoD budget this year with cuts of that size and a new national defense strategy that would shrink ground forces from 570,000 to 490,000 over the next ten years while increasing programs in intelligence gathering and cyberwarfare.

            35. Let Space Shuttle Die and Killed Planned Moon Mission: Allowed the expensive ($1 billion per launch), badly designed, dangerous shuttle program to make its final launch on July 8, 2011. Cut off funding for even more bloated and problem-plagued Bush-era Constellation program to build moon base in favor of support for private-sector low-earth orbit ventures, research on new rocket technologies for long-distance manned flight missions, and unmanned space exploration, including the largest interplanetary rover ever launched, which will investigate Mars’s potential to support life.

            36. Invested Heavily in Renewable Technology: As part of the 2009 stimulus, invested $90 billion, more than any previous administration, in research on smart grids, energy efficiency, electric cars, renewable electricity generation, cleaner coal, and biofuels.

            37. Crafting Next-Generation School Tests: Devoted $330 million in stimulus money to pay two consortia of states and universities to create competing versions of new K-12 student performance tests based on latest psychometric research. New tests could transform the learning environment in vast majority of public school classrooms beginning in 2014.

            38. Cracked Down on Bad For-Profit Colleges: In effort to fight predatory practices of some for-profit colleges, Department of Education issued “gainful employment” regulations in 2011 cutting off commercially focused schools from federal student aid funding if more than 35 percent of former students aren’t paying off their loans and/or if the average former student spends more than 12 percent of his or her total earnings servicing student loans.

            39. Improved School Nutrition: In coordination with Michelle Obama, signed Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act in 2010 mandating $4.5 billion spending boost and higher nutritional and health standards for school lunches. New rules based on the law, released in January, double the amount of fruits and vegetables and require only whole grains in food served to students.

            40. Expanded Hate Crimes Protections: Signed Hate Crimes Prevention Act (2009), which expands existing hate crime protections to include crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation, gender, or disability, in addition to race, color, religion, or national origin.

            41. Avoided Scandal: As of November 2011, served longer than any president in decades without a scandal, as measured by the appearance of the word “scandal” (or lack thereof) on the front page of the Washington Post.

            42. Brokered Agreement for Speedy Compensation to Victims of Gulf Oil Spill: Though lacking statutory power to compel British Petroleum to act, used moral authority of his office to convince oil company to agree in 2010 to a $20 billion fund to compensate victims of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; $6.5 billion already paid out without lawsuits. By comparison, it took nearly two decades for plaintiffs in the Exxon Valdez Alaska oil spill case to receive $1.3 billion.

            43. Created Recovery.gov: Web site run by independent board of inspectors general looking for fraud and abuse in stimulus spending, provides public with detailed information on every contract funded by $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Thanks partly to this transparency, board has uncovered very little fraud, and Web site has become national model: “The stimulus has done more to promote transparency at almost all levels of government than any piece of legislation in recent memory,” reports Governing magazine.

            44. Pushed Broadband Coverage: Proposed and obtained in 2011 Federal Communications Commission approval for a shift of $8 billion in subsidies away from landlines and toward broadband Internet for lower-income rural families.

            45. Expanded Health Coverage for Children: Signed 2009 Children’s Health Insurance Authorization Act, which allows the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to cover health care for 4 million more children, paid for by a tax increase on tobacco products.

            46. Recognized the Dangers of Carbon Dioxide: In 2009, EPA declared carbon dioxide a pollutant, allowing the agency to regulate its production.

            47. Expanded Stem Cell Research: In 2009, eliminated the Bush-era restrictions on embryonic stem cell research, which shows promise in treating spinal injuries, among many other areas.

            48. Provided Payment to Wronged Minority Farmers: In 2009, signed Claims Resolution Act, which provided $4.6 billion in funding for a legal settlement with black and Native American farmers who the government cheated out of loans and natural resource royalties in years past.

            49. Helped South Sudan Declare Independence: Helped South Sudan Declare Independence: Appointed two envoys to Sudan and personally attended a special UN meeting on the area. Through U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice, helped negotiate a peaceful split in 2011.

            50. Killed the F-22: In 2009, ended further purchases of Lockheed Martin single-seat, twin-engine, fighter aircraft, which cost $358 million apiece. Though the military had 187 built, the plane has never flown a single combat mission. Eliminating it saved $4 billion.
            Actually there’s another site that lists 350 accomplishments President Obama has done, but I rather doubt that you’ll make it through these 50..

          193. chief1937 says

            Ed. Your idea of accomplishments and mine differ slightly. I will respond to a few of yours but not all as some merely can not be explained. Just a few comes to mind like health care.Does “you can keep your Doctor ring a bell ” and millions lost their health care because of the ACA..How about the millions spent on wind power to a company that went bankrupt? Yes he pulled most of the troops out of Iraq but did he accomplish the mission there? We are still sending advisers there as of today. I believe seal team 6 took bin laden out our president sat safely in Washington. As for Americas image we are the laughing stock of the world no longer feared nor respected. Sanctions against Iran he lifted as was expected freeing up millions of frozen assets and allowing them to proceed with uranium testing.Cut defence spending right we once was the most powerful nation in the world that no longer is completely true thanks to his spending cuts and at the same time increasing our national debt to somewhere around 16 trillion. According to some reports he has increased our debt more than all the presidents before him. While cutting funds for America and her people he continues spending billions for people overseas plus importing huge numbers of illegals and possibly terrorist into our country. I don’t call these accomplishments but then maybe you do. No I did not respond to 50 as most of yours was not respondable.

          194. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Chief, Do you believe in facts? Can you accept facts when they are obvious? The Affordable Care Act is a fact. It exists. I’m sorry if you resent that our black Progressive President created it, but it’s here. You’ll probably never benefit from it but there are a few million less fortunate people who will. A favorite expression of you Regressives is “DEAL WITH IT!” I’m afraid that is entirely appropriate in this case!

          195. chief1937 says

            Yes I understand facts if they are just that and according to your own statement you sir do not as fact one our president isn’t black he has a white mother and a black father as far as we know that is correct but maybe you have other facts that are not known to the remainder of us. You are correct the ACA is here as bad as it is we are stuck with it at this time but who knows what the future holds. We have the democratic party to thank for it as it is their baby not one republican voted for it and as I remember our leader of the house Rep Pelosi at that time stated we have to pass it to find out what is in it( that being some great leadership). Helps some hurts others.

          196. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Chief, you posts are very hard to decipher because of the lack of punctuation, but I think I grasp what you are attempting to say.

            I was born in Florida and raised in Alabama. Need I say those states are in the Deep South? I was trained while on my Dad’s farm and in the little country school I attended, “If a person has one (1) drop of negro blood coursing through his veins, HE IS A NEGRO!!!. That was the consensus in the old South. Of course I don’t believe that today, I wasn’t sure it was true in the 30s and 40s during my formative years. I know now that “negro” is not an accepted word just as the corruption of that word is considered a slap in the face of African-Americans.
            As far as President Obama being “half black and half white”, I suppose it is only the black half you hate? To me he is simply neither. He is my President and I voted for him twice and, were it possible, would do so again. I’ll offer you a challenge. Walk up to any person who never could afford insurance until ACA came into being, and tell them “ACA is a very bad thing”. While you are recovering, maybe you’ll realize that “Obamacare” is probably the best thing to happen to less fortunate people since FDR’s New Deal. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that Regressives are so extremely selfish!

          197. chief1937 says

            As with most of your post this does not rate an answer at least one you could understand.

          198. Jerry DeRoche says

            Thanks Dennis it’s truly amazing how some people can be in denial. This country is in serious trouble. King obama is doing everything he can to destroy this county. He should be in prison right next to killery. They are both guilty of treason. I hope you enjoy your fema camp.

          199. Billy says

            Eddie boy, Your shoe size must be higher than your IQ. Have you been awake at any time in the past 7 years ? Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah “IS” a Muslim, he “IS” anti-American, he “IS” 100% RACIST, and he “IS” only half NI66ER.

          200. 1EdMeadows83 says

            OK, moron, if that is true, where is your proof? It is so easy to tell bald-faced lies on these Regressive sites that one can never tell what is truth and what is a lie. Prove to me that he is a Muslim and I’ll believe you. But it has to be PROOF, not simply your opinion. People like you are too stupid to realize just how stupid you are, but it comes through your pitiful efforts at writing. I never post, on these sites, what my IQ is, but, I promise you, it is higher than yours!

          201. DW3223 says

            Prove he’s not a Muslim!

          202. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I don’t have to prove he’s not a Muslim. You and those like you stated that he is, so the burden of proof is on you.

          203. DW3223 says

            Burden of proof or not, you still can’t prove he is not a Muslim. History will make that determination.

          204. 1EdMeadows83 says

            NO, NO, NO, DW! I don’t have to prove he is not a Muslim. People like you claim he is, so the burden of proof is on YOU! History will not attempt to prove such a thing because it doesn’t exist. Bertrand Russell once said there is a teapot orbiting the sun. He expected no one to believe him, but that is not the case with you Regressives. You expect others to believe your nonsense!

          205. Jerry DeRoche says

            Ed did you ever meet your God at a little boys camp just curious?

          206. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No, I didn’t, Jerry Baby, I don’t have no god and, truth be told neither do you. There is no God, Jerry. It’s better for you to realize that now than at that great disappointment upon your death!

          207. Jerry DeRoche says

            Ed you are a dumb ass. You don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground . HE’S A MUSLIM!!!!!!! My god read the information is out there! I really feel sorry for you!

          208. 1EdMeadows83 says

            OK, Jerry Baby, you made the aqccusation, now PROVE it!

          209. 1EdMeadows83 says

            OK, Jerry Baby, you made the accusation, now PROVE it!

          210. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

            Ed if you want proof that he is a Muslim all you have to do is read his own statements where he has said that he is a Muslim. So if he is saying he is a Muslim I take that as proof and so should you. And do you really think any of us care what your IQ is?? It also has been proven that people with high IQ have a very low understanding of what real life is. Are we to be impressed because you have years of schooling and we have years of living in the real world with no fancy words. While you were in school we were working and earning a living and putting food on the table and a roof over our famlies heads.

          211. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I don’t need proof for myself, Freddie. I know he’s not a Muslim because I am intelligent and can read. That accusation you brought up still again was made entirely out of context and quoted and re-quoted by you Regressives as it was true. It is not true, Freddie Boy.

          212. Outtruder says

            I did not vote for,nor would I ever,place my vote on O-man,( nothing to do with external color but his heart color).Truly he adheres to his blackness, he has been falsely annointed and crowned as the first black president, geneticly he is half white and is not a genuine black man ,milato comes to mind.Most assuredly by his fruits his heart is in darkness and most of the genes must reside there!

          213. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh geez! I get so weary having to correct grammar and spelling of you Regressives! The word you wanted to write is mulatto. There is no such word as milatto, except, possibly, in your vocabulary. I was raised in rural Alabama so I know what a Mulatto is. I also know that, in the South, if a person has any African-American blood coursing through his veins, that person is BLACK!. So Barack Obama is the first black President, regardless of what Bill Clinton claimed.
            If you knew what you were talking about, you could have come up with other names for mixed blood Americans: Mulatto is half black, half white. Quadroon is 1/4 black and 3/4 white. Octoroon is 1/8 black and 7/8 white, I don’t think it goes any further than that, even in Alabama. Don’t pit your limited knowledge against the knowledge of one who KNOWS what he is talking about.

          214. Outtruder says

            Howbad of me,I happened to mishkspeile a whord oar too,please do not let it get you panthose into a bind. For your information I was taught the phonics and was spelling handkerchief in second grade.So glad to have a know it all egotistically demented more off such as yourself making the rounds correcting the spelling with your blue pencil ,, and a geneticist genius to boot! Sounds like you must be very well acquainted with the term mulatto,must too.I have mixed race family members too.So y’all jus git along!

          215. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Just for your information, I never read posts from people who try, by using big words, to impress me. I’m not easily impressed.

          216. Outtruder says

            Who would waste their words trying to impress such as your ilk? Have you ever rode a jackass?……If not, you should get onto yourself every once and awhile!

          217. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I don’t know the answer to your question, Outie. Maybe you can tell me, because they do, constantly, just as you did with your insipid post. My ILK? Where in the world did you learn that word? Do you even know what it means? Oh, and by the way, you genius, it is not “Have you ever RODE a jackass. A smart person would know that the proper question would be, “Have you ever ridden a jackass?” My work here is done.

          218. Outtruder says

            You just proved my point,by the way ilk is synonymous for sort.It appears you have lived a sheltered life and should get out and around on that jackass a bit more frequently.Adios pilgrim!

          219. 1EdMeadows83 says

            My goodness!!! I don’t see how I can compete with such a superior mind, If you want to have a battle of wits with me, I suggest you gather yourself some ammunition. I think my life has been pretty well in the open, that’s why so many Regressives hate me! I’ve worked on more campaigns than you’ve realized even existed. I voted for Adlai Stevenson and for every Democratic presidential candidates since. I’ve not always been on the winning side but I voted in every presidential campaigns since 1948.

          220. Outtruder says

            Oh,I beg yer mos hummle parden sir,it is mulatto. The combining of a mule ,latté and a toe, a strange brew it is indeed! Actually in my neck o da woods and what concurs with Webster’s Mulatto: The offspring of a negro with European stock.Save all the hair splitting technoterms,a spade is a spade!

          221. Outtruder says

            Oh I sho do beg yo mos hummle pardon sir! In my neck-o- de woods a Mulatto is as defined by Webster’s A negro offspring of European stock.

          222. Outtruder says

            Oh I sho do beg to mos hummle parden sir ,Webster’s mulato a negro offspring of European stock.

          223. Ralph Sinamon says

            The word that you refer to seems to be a ‘bastardization’ of a mispronounced word. It started as negro….which in Spanish means BLACK. Lazy speaker’s turned it into ‘nigra’ which then devolved into nigger. Words only have as much power as we give them. Maybe it is time to let the words slide past us without acknowledging them and giving them unwarranted power.

          224. 1EdMeadows83 says

            It is not necessary for you to lecture me on the varieties of names assigned to the black race. I went to college in Alabama where, during football games, there were no blacks allowed in the stadium, except for an old bootblack who dressed up in a ratty old tuxedo and derby hat and strutted up and down the sidelines as a clown. I took a coruse in anthropology while I was there and I learned there are 4 distinct categories of humans: Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid and Australoid.
            I think that, today that has been reduced to the first three. So Mr. Sinamon, i. quite familiar with all the appellations that have been ascribed to the black race. In the South, we had Mulattos, Quadroons, Octaroons, all the so-called “N” words as well as darky, coon , high-yellow, jigaboo and others you never heard of.

            At best he is a mulatto.
            He is , for sure &certain an illegal foreign usurper occupying
            our Republic &….if that does not suit you….
            A radical muslim, lying, cowardly ,worthless, queer, murdering, spendthrift, narcissistic, pos bastard.
            Those are no doubt his better qualities.
            Enjoy your day.

          227. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Yes Dear Emma, Barack Obama is a Mulatto. Does that make you feel superior now? BUT! He is not now nor has he ever been a Muslim. Not that there is anything wrong with being a Muslim, it’s just that he ain’t one. Back to your studies, Emma! Everything else you called him is absolutely ridiculous. What does it matter now? He’s been elected and re-elected and has less than a year to serve and he will serve that year with dignity which I can’t say about you and other Regressives who refuse to let the lie about him being a Muslim go.

          228. Emma says

            Mmmmm..
            Be careful making assumptions.
            Further, ask yourself whom he has “served”.
            Certainly not We The People.
            obama positively IS. muslim, an illegal, a great divider, & no American is better off today, & most are worse off.
            I hope you wake before it is too late.
            I truly do.

          229. 1EdMeadows83 says

            If you “know” that President Obama is a Muslim, then you must have proof.. What is your proof. I won’t be convinced until you show me PROOF!

            Did you know Ted Cruz is a transvestite? Did you know his parents were never married? Did you know Marco Rubio was actually born in Tanzania and is actually a North Korean? I betcha didn’t know all that, now did you? You can make any claim on these cretinous sites and usually the people who read them regularly are convinced that every word is true, as long as it’s against President Obama or Democrats in general. We have websites for Liberals but you will not see the kind of garbage found on this site and other Regressive sites. I’ll bet you visit them all, Emma Dearest, and I’m sure you think every thing posted is true, unless you have an interloper like me who loves to post on them, JUST TO ANTAGONIZE the morons!

          230. Emma says

            Go back & watch his speeches. He says it himself, several times, sometimes catching & correcting to Christian.
            He was raised a muslim .
            “Should the winds change in an unfortunate direction, I will stand with the muslims.”
            “The call to morning prayer is the most beautiful sound on earth” so said the muslim.
            He has financed our enemies with our own money.
            Want proof? Go study the dirty muslim illegal usurper.
            I have, as has anyone with common sense.

          231. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Emma, do you understand what “CONTEXT” is? It is the train of thought a person follows when expressing a thought or a feeling. For example: “He likes Democrats but doesn’t like Republicans.” If a Joe Regressive wanted to make this guy sound stupid, he would say, “He said he likes Republicans”, when he actually said he likes Democrats but despises Republicans, The words are correct and in the correct order, but other, very important, words are left out. That is taking a thought Out of Context. A common practice of Regressives who have problems thinking for themselves. That is what Regressives have done with the oft repeated lie “Barack Obama said he is a Muslim”. It just ain’t true, Emma dearest. It is simply another Republican lie. I don’t see much hope for you to enter the world of intelligent people. You seem to be happy earning much less than your male counterpart. You seem to be content with male Regressives saying “You can’t have an abortion until you jump through these hoops” It’s a very simple, unexciting life that boded well in the 19th Century, which is where the Regressives want to take America. That’s why I call you all “Regressives”, the opposite of Progressives.

          232. Emma says

            Well, “Dearest”,
            I watched & listened.
            My suggestion, “Dearest”, is cut the foolishness & check it out for yourself.

          233. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

            Emma Thank you for telling Ed what most of us truly think of Lord Obummer. I think Ed really likes Obummer but does not want to let us know that. He might know all of these words that can be used to describe Obummer.

          234. Emma says

            You are most welcome.;)
            I apologize for the bad language.
            There are times when one has to really get down in the dirt to get the point across.

          235. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

            Hi Emma. I LOVE the way you put it 🙂 So I see NOTHING wrong with your language. I am REALLY sure I would have used MUCH worse than yours 😉 and with dealing with LORD OBUMMER you did one Hell of a Great job with your wording. Maybe we can get him to take the fast train straight to Hell and just about everyone would be SO very happy 🙂 And who cares what Ed thinks as I think he really is in Love with Obummer. As far as he thinks Obummer has done nothing wrong and it is us who are wrong. I think he has his has had his head buried under the sand for WAY to long. At least 7 years 🙂

          236. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

            Ed we do not use the Ni**er word for there are those that are black and you also have those that are white. So in Obummers case MUSLIM works really well.

          237. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Freddie, in your addled mind I’m sure that statement makes perfect sense, but to us normal people it is utter nonsense.

          238. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

            Ok EDDIE I think there are many that understand what I wrote. You brought up the Ni**er word and implied that is was for people of black in color. I was trying to explain it to you that it goes both ways. Now you have shown us that you are a Obummer lover. So maybe you will crawl back up his legs and stick your head back up his ass for we are tired of all the shit you spew about your honey pie.

          239. 1EdMeadows83 says

            What designates “many” in your thoughts, Freddie Boy? 4?, 6? If it’s not for “people of black in color” then who is it for. You seem to be stumbling over your own dissertation! I don’t recognize the name Obummer. That mu8st be another word understood only by ignorant people. I am not ignorant, Freddie Boy.

            I’ve referred to Obama as a nigger many times because there are such things as niggers; niggers exist and he emulates one perfectly. Why even a black person would vote for a nigger of any color is beyond me but…there it is.

          244. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Bobby, I just posted a piece in which I was very nice to you, but this post you just made proves that you are evil incarnate and I’ll have nothing more to do with you.

            It wasnt a question and the dickish thing is all Obamas I care nothing for bath houses. You would laugh at the cell phone the demorats got for there vote.

          253. Ted says

            Hey genius look up who started the cell phone idea? Hint: It was before your president Obama took office.

          254. Dennis B Anderson says

            You know I could care less. It was over priced and I had to pay for it. You look it up. Everybody says what a bright guy Edison was. He was a theif. Alexander Lodygin developed the tungsten light bulb it was to big and costly to keep lit.He sold it to General Electric in 1906.
            He also developed the electric motor. and was used just like Nicolai Tesla was. Lodygin was named State Plan Electrician for Russia 1918. Now thats genius.

          255. Ted says

            We were talking about the cell phone giveaway which your side tries to blame Obama for when it started under W.

          256. Dennis B Anderson says

            I really dont have a side! All I know is we have a group of people that are using us. I wrote you about these men to show you how they were used up and thrown away. The cell phone was like dangling shiny beads in front of the natives and they took them. Nothing is free. Ted.

          257. Ted says

            Agreed.

          258. Ted says

          259. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Do you know how I can tell when a poster is completely oblivious of facts? It’s when he reverts back to the canard that President Obama is a Muslim. In the early 1950s, the worse thing a Regressive could call a Democrat was Communist. There are still a few past livers who throw that ancient term around, but now the worst thing a Regressive can call anyone they don’t like is MUSLIM. They can’t always spell it correctly but the hatred is there.

          260. Dennis B Anderson says

            Do you know what Churchill had to define Hitler with? He said Hitler was an Inigma wrapped up in a connard, wrapped up in a corrundrum. Theres nothing deceptive about Obamas actions if you peal back the veneer. Hes been aiding & abeding our enemies since he got in office. Hes the first president elect we havent been able to see his back ground jacket why. With his lying he was disbarred so was his wife Micheal. This has set a dangerous presedence that rules were made to be broken. Maybe in love and war but not our constitution. A religion that says to cut your enemies heads off is alright. Its alright to steal as long as its your enemy youre stealing from?. Its in there religion to take over the world. I take it youre calling a republican a regressive. Arent you doing the same thing. Im neither but I can look at something and can tell when someone says they are going to cut my head off I know exactly what to call it. Muslim terrorism.
            Im not oblivious to the facts they have even recorded cutting off the heads of innocent people. They dont even know what they are fighting about. They fight us in the mid east! We let them into our country and they kill us here. What am I oblivious about tell me? What did we do besides make them rich with their oil after world war 11. We even drilled it for them! Another thing they are at war with us not the other way around. Obama cant even say muslim terrorist in the same breathe.
            What would you change if you could? In post haste it wouldnt change a thing.
            Its in there religion and there sharia laws we are to be terminated.

          261. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No Denny. Churchill never said what you wrote. What Churchill said was along the lines of: “Hitler is an Enigma, wrapped in a Canard, wrapped in a conundrum.” You see, Churchill knew good English and good grammar much better tan most of the cretins on this site. I’m afraid that includes you, Danny Boy

          262. Dennis B Anderson says

            Wow how retarted are you its exactly what I said mush mouth.just a small piece of cheese for another ignorant demorat. squeek you. To define you is to know you like a pos american musslim terrorist president.

            Denny, with all due respect, please read what you just wrote then tell me, as honestly as you can. if it makes sense to you. My God!! I just left your page and read some of your stuff. You really can’t write, can you? Every post has up to a dozen misspelled words and breaches of grammar. You seem to have about a 6th grade education. There’s no way to intelligently communicate with a mind like yours! Have a good day.

          264. Dennis B Anderson says

            Like I said phuck you I would be embarrassed also if I were you. To pull a water pistol on someone when youre in a rain storm. Ill bet youre so good you could make the blind walk and the crippled see. I spelled everything right except what you are another free lunch half a$$ed muzlum and thats a gift. Now suck on the end of that if youre so smart Mikey, and I have no respect for you.

          270. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I hesitate to respond to a clueless, racist post, but I will say President Obama is a constitutional lawyer and, obviously know a bit more about the constitution than you or even I. I’m sure it gives you a tiny woodie to call your President stupid names

          271. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Don’t you realize that every time you accuse your President of being a Muslim, your believability drops a bit?

            Get over yourself you will never matter. Youre not as intelegent as some people told you that you are. Obama is a muslim treasonous traitor who will be hung.

          273. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Well Denny, You at least spelled Muslim correctly, even though you didn’t capitalize it! But that’s about the only correct thing you did in this pitiful post. When you were in the 6th grade last year, didn’t they teach you anything about punctuation? Your post is barely legible. The correct way to spell intelligent is I. N. T. E. L. L. I. G. E. N. T. Make a note of that. Oh, and if you really want to make an impression, why not threaten President Obama’s life? I’d like to see you put that in one of your remarks!

            Excuse me, what is a Regressive American? I know about Progressive, Tea Party, Rinos, Democrats, Republicans, etc. but this is the first I’ve heard about Regressive. Please explain–one enquiring mind wants to know. Thanks.

          6. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I think I’ve explained this before. Democrats are the opposite of Republicans. Democrats are Progressive, so it stands to reason that Republicans are Regressive. Don’t you think so?

          7. Priscilla Atwell says

            No. Sorry to burst your balloon but AmericanEnglish doesn’t work that way. When you mix politics with AmericanEnglish opposites don’t mean opposite. Democrats are Liberal while Republicans are Conservative, Democrats are Progressive while Republicans are Regressive–not necessarily. You did know that there is a Progressive Republican branch of the party that adhears to the likes of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Eisenhower, right? In politics there are no boundaries. Sure would make it easier if there were but not in the good old USA–everything goes…that’s why everyone wants to come here. It just makes it hard on those of us who have beliefs that are on both ‘sides’ of the political spectrum at the same time–that’s where Moderates come in. You don’t believe in Moderates?

          8. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh yes, I believe in Moderate. I am a Moderate Democrat. I support much of what Michael Moore espouses but not all. I think Noam Chomsky goes a bit too far a bit too often. The polar opposite of these men would be dear little Ann Coulter,

            Why do you have to place English speaking people in little cubbyholes like AmericanEnglish? There is only English, with different accents, to be sure, but primarily English. I’ve never heard an Australian describe his language as AustralianEnglish, or Canadians as CanadianEnglish.

            OK to the meat of your argument: Opposites do exist. Wrong is the opposite of right, black is the opposite of white and Democrat is the opposite of Republican. Democrats are Progressive, so the opposite of progressive has to be regressive, does it not? So I designate Republicans as Regressives. Other branches of Democrats and other branches of Republicans do not interest me.

          9. Priscilla Atwell says

            As for the AmericanEnglish vs just English; we, as Americans, have added and enriched the English language while also adding some very American aspects to it. One being our politics and the meaning of ‘normal’ English words. When used in reference to politics the meanings of normal English words have sometimes changed and warped out of context. The Republican party used to be the Democratic-Republican party (1790’s to 1820’s), the Whig Party (mid 1800’s) and then the Republican party. Different names, same or similar ideologies. What I was saying was that we in America change our political words to reflect our American meanings–just because someone speaks English doesn’t mean they know the difference between a progressive Democrat and a progressive Republican. Someone from Australia wouldn’t know the difference although we ‘speak’ the same language (with different accents). I was trying to let you know that just because something is ‘opposite’ (black vs white) doesn’t necessarily mean it’s opposite. In American political speech progressive/regressive should be closer to progressive/conservative. I understand that you, being a Democrat would want to down play us Republicans by calling us regressive or backward trending but it just ain’t so. We are for smaller government, less hangouts, less freebees (no free lunch) and the Constitution. Sometimes I wonder what the Democrats stand for–it seems to keep getting lost in the ether (airwaves).

          10. 1EdMeadows83 says

            The Republican party used to be the Democratic-Republican party (1790’s to 1820’s) There is some question about that. This is an explanation of the first time Democratic-Republican was used:

            “Democratic-Republican Party. The Democratic-Republican Party was formed by Thomas Jefferson and others who believed in an agrarian-based, decentralized, democratic government. The party was established to oppose the Federalists who had supported and pushed through the ratification of the US Constitution.”

          11. Priscilla Atwell says

            And then the article went on to say it was replaced with the Whig Party and then the Republican Party–I too researched my answer–seems like from the same Google search. Through time thoughts change, in politics it tends to revolve around where the country is at present (wars, who’s in charge, who we don’t like that are in charge, etc.) I’m sure that is where the name changes came from for the Republican Party’s history.

            I’m not saying the Republicans are the best or the worst–same with the Democrats, but I’m trying to say that the Republicans are not regressive (as you’ve called us) but less progressive. Of course it could all come down to what you define as progressive–I may be off center because your definition doesn’t jive with my understanding. Larger government, more rules, more freebies, rich pay for poor, no middle class–am I missing anything? I personally prefer a large middle class, reasonable taxes, smaller government and reasonable rules–and there is no free lunch (someone has to pay for it!). I’m tired of being that someone (as a middle class white person).

          12. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Oh Priscilla! You have so much to learn! “Republicans are not regressive (as you’ve called us) but less progressive.” I am very surprised that you, obviously a woman could write such a thing. The Regressives want to take away your right to choose, they want to pay you 78 cents on the dollar, they don’t want you to vote (Of course they would grudgingly make an exception of you because you appear to be a Regressive.) The Republican Party has little use for women except as life support for vaginas. That’s a little rough, but as a Progressive who loves women as equals, I get a little frustrated when the prime victims of Republican cruelty get all gooey when it comes to their Regressive masters. I believe it’s a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

            Ed, is your older brother your daddy ? Your brain is improperly built and doesn’t function normally.

          14. John E Strom Jr. says

            We’ve HAD one for over SEVEN years. And he’s proven to be a scum bag and liar. Few will mourn his departure. MANY would cheer it. THERE’S your black lives DON’T matter. If they DID matter they wouldn’t be offing each other so often. But THAT makes America safer for the rest of humanity.

          15. 1EdMeadows83 says

            SO! You admit that you hate President Obama simply because he is black! I’d like to say I’m shocked but that seems to be the Regressive attitude all over.

          16. John E Strom Jr. says

            No, dipstick. I despise him because he’s a liar, because he’s sneaky, because he’s a cheat, because he has ZERO integrity because he can’t be trusted, because he’s a closet homosexual and a thousand other reasons. Being black is NOT an asset – except to liberal trash like Kanye West and the Kardashians.

          17. 1EdMeadows83 says

            In other words, you think he should address you as Massa Johnny? Yes Massa Johnny, No Massa Johnny. I don’t think that’s likely to happen Johnny

          18. chief1937 says

            Some people’s dislike of our president has nothing to do with color but simply put, so you can understand, it’s about actions or non-actions.Some of us dislike the white part also.

          19. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Why don’t you put those words to music and sing them to people who actually believe what you say, both of them?

          20. chief1937 says

            Why don’t you take an aeronautical approach to a rotating donut that seems to be your intelligence.

            I’m sure that paraphrasing was considered very funny……back in WW2!

          24. chief1937 says

            And what would you know about any WW? What you read in history books I imagine. Thanks for your two cents that’s about what it’s worth.

          25. Ted says

            About the same as you. And be honest, you’re just pissy because your little ripoff got you busted. Maybe unoriginity is your best feature? As for WW’s you didn’t serve in either of them unless they were drafting 7 year olds so you need to cut the disingenuous crap.

          26. chief1937 says

            Stuff it never said I did.You was the one that brought up WW not me dude I only responded to you.

          27. Ted says

            You ripped off a 70 year old line and I outed you for it and you turned it into something it wasn’t. Clear now?

          28. chief1937 says

            Don’y know the age of my post however whatever it is it seemed to fit the situation for that moment. Sorry you were offended. On second thought no I am not you deserved it.

          29. Ted says

            Get back in your meds, you’ll feel better. No need to thank me.

          31. 1EdMeadows83 says

            If President Obama is a scumbag and a liar, how do you suppose he was re-elected? As the Catholics are wont to say, “Tis a mystery!”

          32. John E Strom Jr. says

            By other scumbags and liars, the homosexual vote, the black vote, the illegal vote and Jewish money.

          33. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Whatever it takes to elect a great President! You Regressives haven’t been able to do that since 1961!

          34. John E Strom Jr. says

            Most would disagree with you. Reagan was a great president.

          35. 1EdMeadows83 says

            The US Presidency was the greatest fictitious role that c-grade movie actor ever played. I can name lots and lots of intelligent people who would most definitely disagree with you. Nancy had to feed him the answers to questions the press asked him. Seriously, Reagan was a terrible President, an actual embarrassment at times.

          36. John E Strom Jr. says

            And YOU are a left wing idiot. Clinton, who I’m sure you love, is s rapist and committed treason. Has engaged in influence peddling, along with his wife. Obama is a closet homosexual and Muslim out to destroy this country. I’m guessing YOU like both.

          37. 1EdMeadows83 says

            The fact that you accuse Secretary Clinton of being a RAPIST gives the lie to everything you wrote. Whom do you accuse her of raping, Vince Foster? I thought she was supposed to have murdered him. SO! I’ll have to think that everything you write is a Fu##ing lie and I hate to think that about a fellow human being, If that is, indeed, what you are! If you are accusing her husband (You did not say Which Clinton is a rapist.) Whom did he RAPE? Maybe it is Chelsea, but again, who did she rape? Maybe it was Senator DeWitt Clinton you accuse of rape, ‘tho I’ve never heard that before. But what do I know? I’m just a poor Liberal and not really in on the various sexual shenanigans that go on in Washington, as you seem to be.

          38. John E Strom Jr. says

            I accused BILL CLINTON you meat head. But Hillary WAS his enabler and she DID clean up the messes. Probably a goodly share of those 91 bodies. Or is it 92 with Scalia’s murder? Hillary was the head of the “Bimbo Eruption Team”. She created it. SHE is a pig and HE is a pig.

          39. 1EdMeadows83 says

            I suppose, to a person of a very limited intellect, calling a person a homosexual is probably the worst thing you can say about that person. Maybe you ought to try living in the 21st Century for a little while. You’d be amazed how attitudes have changed during your long, long nap. I accept, that to your feeble mind a homosexual Muslim is absolutely horrible, and other people with similar lower intelligence might feel the same way, but to people with normal or higher intelligence, the onus falls back on the poor souls who actually believe that nonsense. So now you can call me a Liberal, homosexual Muslim. Go ahead and see how much I care!

          40. John E Strom Jr. says

            I would guess you DO bat for the other team. So in your world sodomy us a good thing? Just another “lifestyle”? Doesn’t the bible call it an abomination? Isn’t it really perversion?

          41. 1EdMeadows83 says

            There’s nothing wrong with sodomy if that’s what turns your wheels. I know simple minds like yours think that is the ultimate insult. Well, it was 60 years ago, but things change and people begin to reason – oops, I mean SOME people, not you!. Sodomy is actually legal today! Imagine that! You can call me whatever you wish. As long as I know it’s not accurate, it rolls right off me and leaves me exactly as I was before you even thought of what, in your feeble mind, was a terrible put-down. I hope, someday, you might have enough maturity to realize, words are just words and actually do no harm to the recipient of childish banter. I hope you graduate from Junior High in the next few years, but I don’t see that day coming yet.

        OH, but we HAVE to rush this through!

        Rush it through so we, the people don’t catch the screwing.

      5. 1EdMeadows83 says

        YEAH!!!! And George Bush planted the bombs in the North Trade tower and Cheney did so to the South tower!!! It is very easy to tell lies on sites such as this and have certain idiots believe what you write. Fortunately, once in a while an intelligent person will sneak in unnoticed and correct the liars. I like doing just that!

        1. Dennis B Anderson says

          Well lets see 1 IUD it appears to me you havent done a damn thing here except get excited about Bush & Cheney wow I didnt know they did that. Does Obama know? Anyone want to take this story apart.? Hey say something or get lost

          1. 1EdMeadows83 says

            No Denny. I wasn’t serious. I was being facetious. I apologize if it was beyond your ability to understand humor.

          2. Dennis B Anderson says

            I thought I was being humorous.you have been hanging out with a liberal croud to much lately? A IUD is a bomb and some people say Bush knew about the towers before it happened like Rosevelt knew about Pearl Harbor before hand ?Go out and blow something up that belongs to Obama? Oh wait he doesnt own anything he can honestly name not even his children. A good DNA test would put an end to this.??

          3. 1EdMeadows83 says

            OH Denny! I’m about ready to give up on trying to educate you! An IUD is an Intrauterine Device, designed to keep a woman from becoming pregnant. What you are feebly reaching for in attempt at witticism is I E D , or Improvised Explosive Device. Tsk, Tsk!

          4. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Denny, here’s another vocabulary lesson for you. Look it up, “F A C E T I O U S. Oh forget about it! You don’t know how to research anything, so here.s the definition, “Treating serious issues with deliberately inappropriate humor” Forgive me if I confuse you with my intelligence!

      6. 1EdMeadows83 says

        Did you know that Bush and Cheney set off the explosions that took down the World Trade Center towers? Betcha didn’t know that, now didja? Anybody can put anything they like on these senseless web sites! Why do you suppose people who can actually think, consistently rate President Obama as one of the better presidents. Look it up. If you don’t know how, have a 9 year old teach you.

        1. Dennis B Anderson says

          I think I said I didnt know people ever made those accusation apparently no one else agreed with this story did they? I dont care for any of the Bushes. As far as getting a 9 year old to feed me information I have a life. There is a difference between being ignorant or uninformed than being stupid. This is a perfect example right here. You want something from me? Even a 9 year old knows something is wrong with Obama being married to a man and liking to suck on corks. What I will be looking for is not to see anymore of your sorry a$$ posts. Youre the stuff I accidentally step in.

          1. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Denny Lad, I think I mentioned somewhere in one of my earlier posts that a stupid person doesn’t know he’s stupid. You fit that description to a T!

          2. 1EdMeadows83 says

            Sorry to disappoint you Ralphie. You’ll hear from me every time you put a stupid post on a site and I see it. You implied that President Obama is married to a man. That is stupid and you are not so stupid that you don’t realize it. How could two “men” have a daughter, 6 feet tall and looks exactly like Michelle? I’m sure you don’t believe that. At least I hope you don’t believe that.

    2. AKLady says

      ???
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?

        1. Deborah G says

          no that is the mantra of the left keep repeating buzz words like “racist” “liar” as nauseum until the get some moron in their worthless base to believe it. Then they exploit them further

        1. Kent2012 says

          he has promised a lot of things….what he is delivering is not keeping up with the promises…the parasites do not care that he is a rag loving communist and the coffee shop socialists are cheering….along with these idiot twits that call themselves journalists on abccbsnbcmsnbc rooters bbc oh and the hores at the huffy puffy posty…

          1. jeannemartin says

            I have never seen before and hope to never see again the moderators of a Debate “hug” the candidates after it was over!
            What the heck was that??!!
            The moderators at the Democratic Debate actually hugged Hillary and Sanders!
            Hmmmm … wonder whose side they were on?
            All these demented people flock together like a bunch of wild geese and support each other.
            It’s pathetic to see the media so entrenched in one sided politics that no fair and balanced reporting can ever come to light!
            How our country has suffered under the auspicious of the likes of Obama!

          2. Kent2012 says

            that is due to the fact that for some time folks that have aspired to be “journalists” are actually confused children that have gone into media to “repair” the world, not “report” the news…the only folks that have come close to taking care of business are the “investigative reporters” and they only “investigate” GOP politicians and slander anyone who supports the adults in their effort to regain control of the runaway ship of state……

        I don’t and I just happen to be smart enough to KNOW when someone lies or merely parrots someone else’s dictates. You want a cracker?

    3. Richard Autry says

      He pretty much does the same thing with his underlings. The story goes that he is a major prima-donna.

      1. Richard Autry says

        OF course. It’s against the Veterans.

    4. John E Strom Jr. says

      They need to give ANY candidate a full, in depth exam to make sure he/she has a long enough history on the bench so that the senate can guage their judicial temperament.

      1. Ralph Sinamon says

        What needs to be done is any appointee to the SCOTUS should demonstrate absolutely ZERO ideological bent. THE REASON for the LIFETIME appointment is so they aren’t ideologues! The Supreme COURT is not there to make law or assure legacy for some cretin like Obama!

    5. Robert Morzenti says

      Problem is the republicans are stupid enough to fall for this bullshit or are so afraid of him they’ll do exactly what he wants…I’m sorry to say they are a spineless and just all talk…

      1. Ralph Sinamon says

        The elected ones that get more than one term do NOT work for their employer……they just collect the paycheck and lust for retirement…..again, on our dime.

    6. Beeotchstewie says

      Problem being that congress has enabled almost every single anti-American scheme Obama has beset upon us all. I don’t see that changing. If Osatan gets to nominate yet another hyper liberal SC justice, the rule of law will be Sharia.

      1. Ralph Sinamon says

        Spineless….maybe….probably. Getting richer for not doing their jobs…….DEFINITELY!

        1. Beeotchstewie says

          Only in America are those who make the rules allowed to exempt themselves from those same rules! plus their pension and retirement packages are absolutely unreal for what little work they do.

          1. Ralph Sinamon says

            There are laws that deal with obscene subject matter. The problem seems to be one of distraction from the real obscenity……that retirement package they have given themselves IS OBSCENE!

            Elect me to Congress……..I feel like experiencing something obscene!

          2. Beeotchstewie says

            They really are obscene. When a numbskull like Sheila Jackson Lee keeps getting reelected term after term, it is little wonder why the District of Corruption is such a mess. We can do SOOOOO much better if it weren’t for the Soros controlled fraudulent electoral process. That is the real issue. So many younger voters have been methodically indoctrinated to think GOP and conservatives are the root of all evil when all we want is a FREE country that puts the American people first. That is common sense, not racism.

    7. SouthernPatriot says

      The Senate was designed to be a slow deliberative body. The House often responds to the whims and fads of the time, but the Senate was to be s-l-o-w. Let it do as it was designed….delay, delay, delay, and when that is done delay some more. Delay until a new president is sworn in and let him appoint a replacement. Under no conditions, allow this Muslim and reprobate sympathizer appoint anyone.

    8. Robert Wilson says

      Those that hang around B.O. dress in drag.

    9. 1EdMeadows83 says

      “I can’t help but” is a double negative. In this case it means you can’t wonder. Grammar, Ralphie, Grammar!

    10. 1EdMeadows83 says

      Because people who think President Obama has little regard for their intelligence is a sure sign that those people are not very intelligent!

      1. Ralph Sinamon says

        And, of course, there is you, the guy that thinks he is smarter than everybody just because he’s older and afflicted with ‘Old-Timer’s’. Only the blind and ignorant fail to see what Obama and his Thug Club, with the assistance of a CORRUPT Congress has done and continues to do!

    11. 1EdMeadows83 says

      Oh have no fear Ralphie! President Obama will not get a nominee approved by this recalcitrant Congress. We’ll have to wait until after January 20, 2017 to have any meaningful legislation passed. Apparently people like you relish having 535 extraordinarily well paid people doing absolutely nothing! Gee, maybe I’ll run for Congress as a Regressive!

      1. Ralph Sinamon says

        You still, in your foolishness, can’t seem to grasp the fact that Congress is DESIGNED to drag its heels. It is supposed to keep wanna-be “Ruler’s”, that want to “RUSH” things through, at bay. You apparently are quite content with Congress when it rubber-stamps your insanity.

        1. 1EdMeadows83 says

          No Ralphie. You are wrong again. Why do you think Congress is “DESIGNED to drag its heels? What could be the reason for that other than political? How could it “Rubber-stamp” MY insanity? I’m not a congress member nor am I a President. My insanity is strictly local so it’s never in a position to be rubber-stamped. You’re really not very bright, are you Ralphie?

  8. John Topper says

    If what we have seen in the Repuclicant debates are examples of conservatism they let it die! Because it’s racist, bigoted, xenophobic and the furthest thing from “Christianity” I have ever encountered.

      Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

      1. Karin Isbell says

        Because of what he says is the truth.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Obama is not Muslim. However, it would not matter if he was — freedom of religion is what this country was built upon.
          .
          The first to die in the American Revolution was a Muslim.
          The first country to recognize our nation was a Muslim country — Morocco. Our Treaty with that Country has been in effect for over 225 years.

          1. retreaded says

            You need to get your head out of obummer’s butt! There were zero muslims in this country at the time of the American Revolution.

      Scalia killed himself with a knife, fork and spoon. He was a minimum of 200 pounds overweight.

  10. Karin Isbell says

    If Barack Hussein is allowed to nominate a judge replacing Judge Scalia, this will be the end of our country a part of Western civilization.

    1. AKLady says

      Allowed?
      The U.S. Constitution requires he do so.
      .
      Maybe you should learn how your country actually works?

      1. Pasogal says

        He can nominate someone. The Senate does not have to approve the nominee. Nor does the judicial committee have to pass the name on to the floor of the Senate for a confirmation vote.

        1. Shannah says

          Amen!

        2. AKLady says

          Why do you wish to deny the Court to the American people?
          Your bigotry is an embarassment to America.

          1. Pasogal says

            Where do you get off calling me a bigot? You know nothing about me. Since when is it logical to call someone with an opposing opinion a bigot?

          2. AKLady2015 says

            You have published your bigotry for the world to witness.

          3. Pasogal says

            I can hardly claim to be insulted when the one throwing insults at me is a narrow-minded individual without the ability to hear any kind of opposing viewpoint without a nasty, knee-jerk reaction.

          4. AKLady2015 says

            Lies are not opposing opinions.

          5. AKLady2015 says

            Learn how your government actually works.

          6. Pasogal says

            I’m sure I know far more than you do. And I don’t need to stoop to insults to make a point.

          7. AKLady2015 says

            Bigotry: stubborn or intolerant adherence to one’s opinions or prejudices

            That’s what AK”Lady” attempted to do with me (note above). Don’t pay any attention to this Muslim-kisser!

          9. AKLady2015 says

            You have published it for the world to witness.

          10. Shannah says

            Not liking nor agreeing with his politics has absolutely NOTHING to do with his skin color! I wouldn’t care if he was green with purple spots! His greatest desire is to bring the US of America down to the level of Greece financially and for us to lose our first and second Constitutional rights!He has brought more division to this country in race relations and allowed good men in our police force to be murdered! He WANTS to destroy this country and bring about either a race war or for the people to rise up against our own government so that he can “take advantage of a good crisis ” as the Democrats have been known to say! He came to the Presidency with an agenda and he is doing exactly what he set out to do!

            The Electoral College elects the President.
            .
            Congress makes the laws.
            Congress spends the money.
            YOU ELECT CONGRESS.

          12. joe s says

            because we don’t trust a arrogant awful un-American jerk who all you moon mats voted for twice and people like you who think you know everything.

          13. AKLady2015 says

            Keep on embarassing America.

          14. AKLady2015 says

            You, the voter, do not elect a President.
            You, the voter, cannot elect a President.
            .
            The U.S. Constitution does not permit it.

          15. Karin Isbell says

            Look at the pot calling the kettle black. By calling Pasogal a bigot, you have displayed your own name-calling ignorance about what bigotry actually signifies..

          16. Pasogal says

            Thank you, Karen!

          17. AKLady2015 says

            Ignorance of law is a fact.
            Bigotry is self-evident.

          18. Clay Fitzgerald says

            You continuously make statements like that, but not once have you backed up any of your open ended comments with evidence.

      2. Shannah says

        Yes he can nominate someone, but that doesn’t mean we cannot draw out the confirmation hearings, have filibusters and ultimately disapprove and deny their confirmation. Then he has to nominate someone else and the whole thing starts again until we watch the Obama family wave goodbye to the White House and the next President will make a nomination. God willing, it will be a conservative. That is my opinion and I am entitled to it. It doesn’t make me stupid or crazy, it simply shows that I have a different opinion than you do.

        1. AKLady says

          What are your objections to Sonia Sotomayer?
          What are your objections to Elena Kagan?
          … Gerard Lynch
          … Andre Davis
          … David Hamilton

          1. Shannah says

            The same objections Obama had to Justice Samuel Alito, we just don’t like them. You don’t seem to like it when you own tactics are used against you. Or are there 2 sets of rules? Oh, I forgot, you like the Constitution ONLY when it fits your agenda.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            What tactics might those be?
            You have me confused with someone else.

          3. Shannah says

            Obama set legal president by being the first one to filibuster during confirmation hearings on Justice Samuel Alito. Making it fully acceptable for anyone else to do the same during confirmation hearings on anyone Obama nominates, thus drawing out the process until the new President takes office. Those tactics dear.

          4. Clay Fitzgerald says

            Oh, now it’s become apparent that there are TWO of you.

          5. AKLady2015 says

            What objections might those be?
