Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

To the Canadian,I would like to say to you this.You are a total idiot.Just because someone is against Obama it does not make him a racist.I am against him because of his policies.I believe what he is doing is destroying this great nation.For you and others like you to say that we are racist is completely wrong.You don't know me or what I feel in my heart.So next time think before you make a comment like that.

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

Hey Richard Remmele, how do you propose we "get along" with religious zealots who will only be happy when they've exterminated all the "infidels"?

You must deal with them by making them fear the USA more than their false prophet (& organized crime boss) Mohammed. The only way to deter their violent outbursts is to make them realize their violence is unacceptable. You accomplish that through overwhelming & unmerciful force.

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

As a Canadian it is a wonder to most Canadians, since it is obvious to us, that President Obama is one of the greatest President since F.D.R. Why Americans criticize this great man is a mystery. It cannot be that they are simply to ignorant to see and appreciated his intellect and leadership qualities, which is so readily obvious to the rest of the World populations. It simply must be racism, this is the only conclusion the intelligentsia as aforesaid, can draw.

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

I disagree with 'worried' who said, "the Republicans have zero chance of winning". I believe that the majority of Americans know that the media is biased toward Liberalism and will vote Obama out of office. We have to keep hope alive!

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

Getting Obama out of office is NOT the answer. If we as a nation continue to fight oursevles are these petty issues, we will never be able move ahead. Work with Obama not against him, maybe, just maybe we all will be better off. I agree we need to take care of ourselves before others around the world. But isn't that what makes America so great?

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

With MSNBC, CNN, CBS, etc., pushing Obama and badmouthing Romney in the guise of "news," the Republicans have zero chance of winning. It's the old "self-fulfilling prophecy" gimmick. Romney's not likeable, Romney flip-flops, etc., and pretty soon the gullible fall in line.

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

Apparently spelling and coherence are not requirements for posting on this article. Stating that Obama is our Savior is a gross over-characterization. No President before him has signed more Executive Orders to push through his own agenda. He has made it clear since day one that he is more concerned with the global perception of the United States than about the people of the United States. He is spending more and more money with ideas to spend even more money. The European Union is on the verge of a financial collapse and the only thing that we can do to protect ourselves is to cut spending and balance the budget.

The US Government needs to obey the same rules that individuals do with regard to finances. You MUST pay your bills first, before you give money away to charities and other worth-while causes. If we had the money, I would be supportive of additional health care and welfare options. But the truth is that we can not afford it. If we continue to purchase these things on credit, we will never be able to dig our way out. The government needs to cut up their credit cards and deal with the crisis. If we fix the foundation, the economy will recover. Devaluing the dollar is less likely to address economic issues and more likely to create a misconception of improving conditions.

Get Obama out of office before he ruins us all!

Idaho has how many electoral votes?
You don't matter. Mitt is just too out of touch and too unlikeable to get elected.

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

Wake up call to MomSaid - Sad to say and like it or not - There are 2 Billion Muslims in the World, that is almost 29% of the worlds population and growing fast. There are 7.6 Million in North America as of 2011 and 56 Million in Europe.

Among the Muslim Population the faith to their religion is ever increasing [CNN]. It is expected that if present rate of increase of Muslim population continues that by 2030 One out of Three person will be Muslim.

Ok, first you would have to take out all the nuclear sites in all the Muslim countries, that would wake the rest of the Muslims up and mobilize them against us. It is not like U.S. Japanese in the U.S. during WWII or any other containment situation.

Look at the numbers for WWII and look at the potential Muslim numbers. How do we have any option except to get along with Muslims. In a World War, I think it is a possibility that all of Europe would capitulate like France.

Re: “The Rebranding of Obama, 2012

Thinking Obama will have to delay Letterman prep and give Israel a call. There is no planB for these clowns. The media is working overtime to protect their Obama… blame Romney and a stupid YouTube ideo with 6000 views. They are too ignorant to realize Zawahari orchastrated the mob in Egypt. Didn't BO spoke the "I killed Osama football" numerous times at the D&C convention?

Some in the media are growing up. After a decade, they are learning you can't appease the violence of the Islamist. However, the Boise North End is still populated with COEXIST stickers on cars, safely parked in their liberal cocoon. The will never comprehend evil until the knife is at their throat. Yes for them, all of humanity is good, deep down.

US Ambassador to Libya… an employee of Hillary's State Department. Security?

Re: “Facing an Iran War

Zionist Israel sit's on over 300 Nukes and won't let any inspections of their facility, while Iran allowed the inspections and no bomb grade nukes were found, interesting!!??

Romney is a War-Monger, specialy after his visit to Israel and kissing there butts about going to war for them!!! He lost my vote! America is broke, time to stop sending 30 billion a year to Israel, while they try to get us to do their dirty works!

Remember Weapons of Mass-destrution in Iraq, NONE FOUND, 4,900 U.S. service men DEAD and 2.5 trillion spent, for what??????? and nowwwere broke!?
Iran or Iraq was never a threat to the USA!!!!

Re: “Fear of a Right Planet

It won't happen Ted. The "liberal support for Obama" as you put it has all but evaporated. As you stated, Obama has betrayed the Lefties.
And in doing so he has devastated the economy and businesses. Doubled the unemployed. Tripled the Deficit. Prolonged military deployments. Enabled radical Islam to take over the Middle East. Not to mention his arrogant crony capitalism with Wall Street. The Fast and Furious and The Keystone Pipeline debacles. Plus his numerous ill conceived end runs around the Congress, with amnesty for illegal aliens as just one example.

We are witnessing a mass disassociation with all things Obama/Liberal/Progressive/Democrat with the American people. Any one of the Republican candidates who secured the nomination would trounce Obama, because the Obama record has absolutely nothing positive in it. That "change" you left wingers were screaming about in 2008 happened. And the citizens of this country are living these changes and rejecting them soundly.

Re: “A Pen at a Gunfight

Mr. Rall, you're more likely to shoot yourself in the head than any "conservative" might have the inclination to hurt you...

Stop looking for monsters under your bed. They left 3 1/2 yrs. ago and now reside in the White House.

Re: “A Pen at a Gunfight

Mr. Rall understands the issue far better than Mr. Cope.

Pass a law restricting firearm ownership.
The law-abiders turn in their now-illegal guns.
The law-breakers ignore the law (after all, they're the law-breakers).
Now only the law-breakers, among the commoners, have guns.
Violence and law-breaking (including with guns) escalate.
There's case history - look at the UK and Australia.

Re: “A Pen at a Gunfight

If you are serious about free speech control you are also going to need to repeal the 1st Amendment.

Actually for any such fundamental right, speech, though, life and self-defense (with arms), religion, voting, you will need to repeal the entire Constitution.

Re: “Facing an Iran War

I never liked you, Ted... but I used to respect you. You'd do better to see current events as they are unfolding, instead of trying to impress readers with 'signatories to' and quotes from wackos that promote your skewed world view.

BTW, Israel does have a superior culture as we once had, till it got diluted with all this no borders, one world community crap.

Regarding racism... DUH... I love my family and my race. I respect all other races that work for the good of all humanity. The takers, the 'victims' and those that pollute our planet are worthless as flies.

How do you rate yourself?
