"is that once again anyone opposing the policies of the current POTUS is, by definition, a racist. My opposition is 100% on the basis of his track record, his policies, and concern for what is yet to come. Liberals just don't seem to comprehend that concept."

+ 1

Regardless of Politics, I thought Obama might actually be OK and possibly do some good things before he was elected, even if I didn't like his politics.

Track record shows otherwise as well as blatantly breaking the law (F&F for a start),'

But to criticise him is to be called a racist.

The young family of an Afghan friend died in Kabul when a bomb landed in a residential area close to the airport. My 3 colleagues died when their mini bus was shot up on the Baghdad airport road June 2003.
Now that is a shame, to think they had the great fortune to not to slughtered by the Russians or at the hands of their own countrymen (Muslims), but to die from a tragic mistake.

Course as we've no idea just who shot up the mini-van, they still could have killed by their fellow countrymen.

Tragdey never the less.

But for entirely different reasons.

Now for the News from the other front.

NBC Edits Democratic Atlanta Mayor Out of Snowstorm Controversy, Blames GOP Governor | NewsBusters

WILLIAMS: And let's say at the outset no one expects southern cities to be as good at snow removal as cities like New York or Chicago or Boston. But, it took exactly 2.6 inches of snow to paralyze this nation's ninth largest city. The problem was not limited to Atlanta either, but it's a big urban area, the largest in the south, where everybody got on the roads at the same time, right at the time when the roads turned to ice.

Public officials got defensive in the immediate aftermath of the storm, some blamed the weather forecasters, all evidence to the contrary. Well, today the governor of Georgia chose to fall on his snow shovel. He apologized fully and to everyone for how this storm was handled, or better yet, mishandled. And tonight we are learning much more about how it was allowed to get so bad so quickly. We want to begin tonight with NBC's Tom Costello in Atlanta. Hey, Tom, good evening.

Uh, since when is it the governor's job to clear the snow off on city streets and not the mayor of the city?


When the Governor is a Republican and the mayor is a Democrat.

At least according to NBC News, the media branch of the Democratic Party.

By the way, when it comes ot trust;

NBC News and sister cable network MSNBC rank at the bottom of media outlets Americans trust most for news, with Fox News leading the way, according to a new poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling.

In its fifth trust poll, 35 percent said they trusted Fox news more than any other outlet, followed by PBS at 14 percent, ABC at 11 percent, CNN at 10 percent, CBS at 9 percent, 6 percent for MSNBC and Comedy Central, and just 3 percent for NBC.
Comedy Central out ranks NBC by 100% when it comes to trust. Now that would be comedy, if not so sadly true.

You are kind, con-pilot. I was thinking "NBC - the Democrat Propaganda Machine".

It appears that way, but they are very careful not to damage the Democrat brand and do harm to Hillary.

I predict that Queen Hillary's campaign will be the best financed, best run and best managed campaign in the history of the United States, lead with 100 percent comittment by NBC to have her elected.

Hollywood will fall into line by producing documentaries about how great and fabulous Hillary is and TV sitcoms such as 'Boston Legal' will be on every night of the week during prime time pimping for Hillary and the Democrats.

Even the slightest suppossed transgression, no matter how minor, by any Republican that dare challenge Queen Hillary, will be the lead story on NBC taking up seven to ten minutes of all their national news broadcasts. For eample, look how NBC is pursuing the Christie story like a rabid dog and Christie is not even an offical Presidential canidiate. Just the fact that he might run and has an actual chance of beating her, has NBC scared to death.

I just hope the American people wake up in time.

After the disappointment of the Messianic Obama, the black voting block will most likely have no candidate of colour to favour. it will not readily support a white male, whether Republican or Democrat. It could however, in all good conscience, support a white woman. If La Clinton wants to be POTUS then she will be. Most of the publicity surrounding the whole shebang will then be really and truly nothing more than hot air and a criminal waste of vast financial resources. The Republicans should 'no contest' 2016 and put Amanda Knox up as nominee in 2020. It would be rather amusing to have a convicted murderer enter the White House rather than an apparent one leaving it.

I, for one, hope that the next couple of years are not dominated by the state of the Obamas' marriage. Detesting most of his policies as I do, by all accounts they have a strong marriage and certainly two daughters anyone would be proud of.

Now, should he give in to the temptations like Billy did, that would be a different matter. There's no evidence that he has/does/will. I recognize that the media would suppress it till it leaked, however.

I read a range of articles over the last few weeks (from all sides !)
and it "seems" to be that the final straw for Michelle was Obama
being a bit unfaithful and the Secret Service covering it up.
The problem was, she found ut about the cover up

It will be interesting to see what happens.


Agree, they seem to have brought up two great daughters.

I think he is just following on the tradition

JFK, Billy boy, possibly Obama and probably many more.

Hillary could put a new twist on it though

Yes, if for nothing more than the institution of marriage and the two children I hope they stay together. How much damage could the Prez do if the press was addicted to a divorce story?
