About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

In Washington's Fiscal Tango, Obama's Lacking A Dance Partner

For our President ---bottom line-- he still needs to identify one of the opposition he can engage-------it has to be frustrating to deal with a mob-----that's what Congress has become

Top White House aides constantly refer to a "civil war" in the Republican Party.

They sometimes use the phrase with near delight, reveling in the tensions that threaten to pull apart the GOP. But for President Obama, the divided opposition creates a major problem: He has neither a partner to cut a deal with nor a high-profile adversary to vilify.


Pollster Rasmussen criticizes Republican discourse

He is still in the Karl Rove dream and can't accept the fact that Romney lost-----he says Obama won because the economy was so good--------NO RASMUSSEN ---Obama won because HE was GOOD-----in spite of a very bad economy inherited from the like of you


North Carolina Students Will Get Free Copies of Banned ‘Invisible Man’ -

How great ----North Carolina is like Hitler's Germany on this issue-----we don't need to burn the book---just take it out of the curriculum


Rivals Rally upon Iranian President's return---Our President on the world stage again

Barack Obama out in front again-----and for those who think Hillary will bomb Iran ---maybe not so much


Obama, the Angry Black President?…Not Really ---Just plain BRILLIANT

This is a good article that shows us just how brilliant our President is.


"Republican Fascists Will Stop at Nothing Less Than Ending Our Representative Democracy"

America’s government is far from perfect, but it worked relatively well until 2009 when Republicans’ raison d’être became neutering the legally elected government at all costs to punish the electorate for choosing an African American man as President. Throughout the President’s tenure, Republicans fabricated one phony debt crisis after another to cripple the government’s ability to operate and keep the economy stagnating regardless the damage to the people. In fact, it is safe to say obstructing governance, and democracy, has been the Republicans’ only goal for four straight years.

well I'm learning that you jump to conclusions

by not reading the thread--- it appears rather like those who have not kept an open mind-----I would be glad to read any thread or link that you have generated on the subject----

here it is ---

The team that she will assemble in 2016 is just about unbeatable. First of all, heading it up is her husband Bill who really showed how likable and powerful he was at the 2012 Democratic Convention. There was no headliner at the Republican convention that came close to him. The Clinton's are seasoned politicians and know exactly how to run a campaign. There was a lot of talk about surrogates in the last election, how each of them hit an integral segment of the voting populace and the assembly for 2016 is awesome. Barack and Michele Obama owe the Clinton's a lot. They, and their entire team, will be on hand to support them. They have made great inroads to the Latino vote and most immigrants, not to mention their GOTV efforts in the black community. They alone are an extremely powerful entity that will be backing the Clinton's.

The women vote coming from the entire country will be overwhelmingly for Hillary. In this election Republican women will vote for Hillary more than they have ever voted for a Democratic candidate. First of all, it is an empowering act to make sure that a woman is finally elected President in this country. Second of all the Republican “war on women” is very real to Republican women and the extreme right scares them. Any reader here knows what I am talking about. And Hillary is white, Republican women found it hard to vote for a black man, but Hillary doesn’t have that in her profile.

Her posture as a world figure trumps all of the other candidates that the Republicans can muster. She has made a lot of friends around the world that are long and strong.

Finally, she is smarter than all of them put together. I am such a supporter of her that I don’t want to talk about her ruthless side----she will win this one!

When we look at the horrible mess and message that is coming from the Republican side we need a landslide vote for her, and Congress. With the current Republican House and filibustering Senate we need to get our country back on a good track.
