lower taxes, less welfare, smaller government, family values, gun ownership rights. Whats not to love?
I suspect anything left of Rush Limbaugh is a leftist to you.Rahm Emanuel During his original 2002 campaign, Emanuel "indicated his support of President Bush's position on Iraq & he pushed NAFTA through..One of 15 Democrats that voted for it. …Joe Scarborough worked with Emanuel saying he was a centrist but once Obama sets a policy, Emanuel will get it done.Majority of country is conservative (all in your mind) …Look at the numbers the Republican Party was repudiated……This is now a multicultural country that wants good results not a claim that ideology will be a cure all….The new voters do not have an ideology…It’s the 65 year olds that are clinging to conservative is instant credibility and Liberalism is the root of all evil…This 2008 not 1980.If by the end of Obama’s first term the economy bounces back, civil liberties are restored, and we regain the trust of our allies again…The GOP will not defeat him…They are in disarray.
) I am almost certain Obama will govern from the center (the reason Rahm Emanuel was chosen as chief of staff) . Rahm Emanuel is a centrist.Clueless!!! Look at his record of voting it is just as left as Obama. I find it ridiculous that people think he is going to govern from the center. There is absolutely nothing stopping him. An extreme left speaker and a liberal majority leader offer no resistance at all to the leftist agenda. The only reason he may govern from the center is that the dems know that if they come out swinging their leftist agenda the people will go nuts and wont re elect Obama. Mark my words, They are looking to 2012 already and they know the vast majority of the country is conservative.
Hello JohnThe war had very little impact on the election but you are right the Obama campaign was awesome…The grassroots campaigning in all 50 states and concentrating on eighteen in the last months will be a model to build on.1) That 90% believing we were going in the wrong direction and Obama being the change from the Republicans and the economic crash were the reasons Obama won.2)67% of the Hispanic vote in Colorado, Nevada, and Florida turned those GOP states to blue.3) Like I said with the new voters I really don’t know their ideology mindset..You are right the conservatives drifted off their “bread & butter causes.4) I am almost certain Obama will govern from the center (the reason Rahm Emanuel was chosen as chief of staff) . Rahm Emanuel is a centrist. This was a Democratic year and it has been moving that way since the sweep in 2006…I agree the Democratic Party was the alternative. Like I said many will cling to their ideology but it is time to give and take to solve the problems of the future. Slim margin? Are you kidding me?Obama 65,935,840 McCain 57,753,783 = 8,182,057 differenceElectoral votes Obama 364 McCain 163Obama 53% McCain 46% That’s a good old fashion butt kicking. Obama has a mandate but he won’t take it…He indicated he would close Gitmo (good) and repeal some of Bush’s executive orders (as he promised)……Look at Obama’s coattails house members & senators.
The far right is still fighting the good fight insisting that their brand of conservatism is the only way to go. John McCain and Karl Rove and other right wing pundits said Obama was running as a left wing liberal during the campaign but now that he has won they say it was because he ran on a center right campaign. That arrogance will continue to be their doomHe won on tax cuts (will not happen)The electoral map has changed because this is a multi cultured country without a set ideology….. Saying the country’s center right (without proof) is grasping at straws try to come away with a small victory of sorts. I admit I do not know where the country stands but I suspect solutions are more important than ideology.You are right the electoral map is changing and the south is getting more house members than the northern and coastal states. House seats are based on population and a fixed number of seats in the house of representatives, and when you factor in that Texas is the fastest growing state in popularity along with a number of other southern states close behind, the political power of the south will rise again.
Thanks Legion357Not too funny (IMO) but It is done in good humor..I thought.dohbamaBias media, no original thoughts, no real opinion of your own1)Media bias is just parroting right wing pundits ,who are jealous no one takes them seriously.Sprinkled throughout the forum (blog & threads) are original thoughts I have posted.....Debates are about making a factual case for an opinion backed with a references......Anyone can self diagnose a favorable opinion of thyself or thoughts.
Most of the anti-Obamacites I know (including myself) are expecting the worse, hoping for the best. He may turn out to be the best President we've ever had, and it is his turn to give it a whirl. We wil be watching closely...........
Only one screen name. Just stumbled on these blogs. As usual you have revealed your arrogance and will not admit when you are wrong so no big deal. You are exactly correct on one point. I do post my opinion, or feelings as you call them. I believe that is what blogs are for. You on the other hand can only rehash what you hear and read from the bias media, no orignal thoughts, no real opinion of your own.
BTW it was posted on http://www.oddtodd.com/ A great site, for the most part todd avoids politics, watch the cartoons, they are hilarious He does a lot of freelance work for abc news.
Thanks Mike, Umm this might be a little out of line, a post on another site by a person that call himself JFK, but it is funny , I hope it doesn't offend anyone , it was posted in jest.
John "Freakin' " KennedyWednesday, November 05, 2008
My Fellow Americans, On this historic day I just wanted to take some time out of my busy schedule to congratulate the winner of this year'S Vote Buying Contest, aka "Presidential Election", Mr. Barack "Hussein" Obama, and to offer him some Presidential Advice: 1) Keep it in your pants, if you can. The days of us Chief Executives banging movie starlets and centerfold models in the Oval Office and the Rose Garden while the boys from the press turn a blind eye are, sadly, over. In fact, during a recent Administration that shall remain nameless, the President even had to stoop to getting oral favors from chubby interns under MY old desk during business hours. The truth can be hard to swallow....
2) Keep your dependencies on tobacco, alcohol, painkillers, pharmacueticals, and hallucinogenics a secret from your White House staff as long as possible. Those bastards will think nothing of writing a "tell-all" book when you're gone.
3) As tempting as it may be, avoid the urge to replace "Hail To The Chief" with "Jungle Boogie" by Kool and the Gang when you enter the room at various Presidential Functions. Although I'd pay you $5000 to do it, if only to see the expression on the Queen of England's face when you did.
4) Learn to dance already! You're a disgrace to the stereotype of black guys being better dancers than white guys.
5) Last but not least, if you have the urge to drive with the top down during Presidential Motorcades.... don't do it. Take it from me. Although you may feel loved by the whole world right now, you only got 52% of the vote, which means that 48% did not vote for you. Which means that there's probably a few people out there who would think nothing of attempting to BLOW YOUR FREAKIN' HEAD OFF. Again, trust me on this.
Well, that's it for now. Have fun!
Sincerely, John "Freakin' " Kennedy The Oval Office

Again I apologise , I only copy and pasted it, In the spirit of SNL, I thought it was funny, a little offensive in some areas tho :(
Legion357You continue to be a voice of reason. ....... We will all benefit if Obama along with his 17 advisers pull us out out this situation.That list has several democrats disagreeing...lol
dohbamaYour screen name and the fact that you just signed up a few days ago tells me you are using two identities. Just a feeling. Your style of posting is familiar. You attack, then in the same sentence say you’re not attacking. You have a disdain for liberals and you post in a “Know it all tone” yet cannot back it up with data. All you have is personal stories and feelings like “I’m a conservative so the country must be like me and I know I’m always on the right side”… That’s the arrogance I described. If you are using more than one screen name, it’s because you have low self esteem and your mindset trumps anything else.For example: you posted a sentence from my profile along with your interpretation of the three letters LOL…. I wrote that over year ago (“come on in and tell me where I’m wrong”..LOL) meant I expected a different opinion since I live in conservative Victoria. But that was just my opinion (doesn’t count in your mind) at the time. What do I know?Page A7 of today’s newspaper backs up pretty much what I said. The title of the article is “Keeping the south may be hurting the GOP.”…. And I said months ago hate radio stopped the immigration reform package from passing but that hate rhetoric also cost the GOP the election. Hispanics voted for Obama in high numbers in Colorado, Nevada, and Florida (GOP states) because of the hate rhetoric. Obama enlisted millions of new younger voters who do not have an ideology. The electoral map has changed because this is a multi cultured country without a set ideology….. Saying the country’s center right (without proof) is grasping at straws try to come away with a small victory of sorts. I admit I do not know where the country stands but I suspect solutions are more important than ideology.This what conservative columnist David Brooks said today.On CBS’ Face the Nation, New York Times conservative columnist David Brooks said the Republican Party is in a “world of pain.” “Now it’s just a circular firing squad with everybody attacking each other and no coherent belief system, no leaders,” he added. “You got half the party waiting for Sarah Palin to come rescue them. The other half waiting for Bobby Jindal, the Louisiana governor, to come rescue them. But no set of beliefs, really a decayed conservative infrastructure. It’s just a world of pain.For some of the local posters it's SOUR GRAPES
I would like to leave this alone and just let you go off in your own little world but for some reason I have a hard time letting you twist and spin words. The reason people like Rove, McCain, Krystol and others continued to point out Obama's liberal voting record is because he was running from the center after the primaries. Hillary would have done the same because this is still a center right country. Less than 25% of people in exit polls consider themselves liberal, a signifcant statistic since democrats are far more likely to participate in exit polls. Obama knows this so of course Obama will govern from the center, at first at least, because he does not want to repeat the mistakes the Clintons made in their first 100 days.I admit I do have snicker every time I read that you have the audacity to call someone else arrogant or elitist when your very own tag line states, "come on in and tell me where I'm wrong. LOL". Had you left off the LOL you would have been able to shield the typical arrogance and elitist attitude of the American liberal. Keep in mind that these statements are not meant to be an personal attack, simply pointing out the obvious truth of your ideological mind set.
Some good choices Mike, I would disagree with a few but overall a good list. On Jan. 20th we will have a new president, even tho I did not vote for him some of Obamas ideas seem sound. The country is in a mess I agree, lets hope that Obama can help pull our great country out of its current situation.
