    They had a real leader like John Adams who could actually bring a nation together, not use every opportunity to divide it further like Barry.

    It is getting to be so funny. You and others like you are so totally predictable!

    If our current president were to come out for mom and apple pie, (traditional American culture) you would state that somehow mothers are unconstitutional, and apple pie is a communist plot to over throw our government, and rob you of your freedoms!

    And before you come up with your equally predictable standard reply, that I and other more moderate posters are somehow worshiping president Obama. I will state that the is indeed human, and like all human beings, makes mistakes, just as our founding fathers did. A number of whom actually had African American slaves. But they, unlike the tea party types did learn to compromise, and in fact made a government based upon compromise. And in a couple of months more those principles will again be challenged by the extremes of the political spectrum. Will those extremists ever learn???

    Once upon a time, the South had the Poll Tax (whites exempted, of course, if they couldn’t pay). African-Americans who tried to pay the poll tax found the county tax collector would not accept their money, but he would give their names to those loyal, patriotic wearers of white sheets who knew what to do about African-Americans who wanted to vote.


    Kennedy wanted to do something about this. In three years, he achieved nothing.


    Then Johnson took over, twisted arms, and got Voting Rights. (Of course, Johnson also convinced Congress to approve retaliation for the Gulf of Tonkin attack by North Vietnam, sent 500,000 troops to Vietnam, and dropped more tonnage of bombs on Vietnam than were dropped during all of WWII, including the equivalent in kilotons dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.) So a strong president who wants to do good can accomplish a lot. A strong president who wants to do evil can accomplish a lot. With weaker presidents, there’s not as much opportunity to accomplish good things, and not as much danger of doing bad things.

    The problem with Obama is not his “leadership” or his ideas — pretty much all of which are centrist and in line with what the American people want. A balanced approach to deficit reduction with revenue increases and spending cuts, affordable health care (which was a huge issue in both of his winning elections), immigration reform, background checks on guns, and controlling carbon emissions to avoid the biggest future catastrophe threatening mankind. The problem is that he faces an opposition that has no coherent policy ideas of its own, cannot pass a bill through its own house, and refuses to use Democratic votes to do so until nothing else works, and can only appear to be strong by incoherently opposing everything thing that Obama is for, no matter how sensible.

    Whatever his name is now, Ms Ima is about as useless as a broken Barbie doll.

    Except maybe as an organ bank for Dick Cheney.

    How long until the tea party declares anyone who compromises is a traitor and needs to be imprisoned?

    I haven’t seen him either."
    Okay, that’s funny. Usually I don’t read you.

    I think that society has always had its distracters, its rebels, its nay-sayers, its negativists ( a word ? it is now).
    Strangely ( I cannot explain why) , but these people are necessary and should be listened to….a for a few seconds…anyway….it keeps us on our toes..
    So , such are the Ansoniae, Conserves, Imae, Limbaughs, on and on..
    But we must hope , and do the things to keep them in the minority..

    When you have an idiot in the White house who holds his breath till his dictates are met, it is hard to compromise. Checks and balances Obama! You should not be able to tell the house no I will not even look at it if you put x y or z. You job once it gets to your desk is to vote yes or no or leave it on the desk for period of time so you have no part in it passing! And Reid, you party lap dog! When it comes from the house you vote on it! You don’t cry about what it is. The money is to be designated from the House! Vote NO if you like and send it back. But do not hold it up just because you do not like it! That is how it is to work! But we have an idiot in the White House who does not understand “democracy” in the USA is a Representative Republic that follows the Rule of law! he can dictate which parts of Obamacare can be waved or delayed but when one of the built in check and balance kicks in he shuts down over looks and park.

    I, for one, miss them not.

    I am amazed at the constant assault by the media and status quo politicians on a large segment of the population (not just so called Tea Party people) that just wants fiscal responsibility. You just can’t have an opposing view to this administration. There will be no outrage until these thugs in power start eating their own supporters, and taking away more and more rights of the people; and it will happen.

    At some point they will run out of other people’s money to spend.
