The president unites

December 11, 2013

President Obama is actually becoming a uniter. He’s bringing together Democrats, Republicans, Saudis and Israelis in opposition to his policies....

For once I agree with Sham. Carson, Cain, Sharpton, Jackson, all opportunists. Powell, Rice, Booker all qualified politicians and leaders in their various roles. We are replete with cartoon characters in every racial and political genre.

rmiller, one thing to say, run him. You will lose and we will all lose. Evangelical women are not the female majority. I fear you do not read the "average" woman well. I admire holding firm to extremely conservative beliefs, however, you can't win an election because you are a minority.

Just imagine where we would be had Perot won. No NAFTA or unfair trade agreements, especially with China and their currency manipulation.

Rick,

"And the republican party will do everything in their power to make sure the ACA will fail. But I personally think you are too late."

That's not fair. We didn't have to do anything, this started off as law, and it immediately affected millions of people adversely...Dem's and Repub's.....We didn't write the book, remember? We don't own this one.

Spike,

It may surprise you, but Dr. Carson is an attractive choice for women across the aisle. Mothers, women who are evangelical by profession, professional women in the medical field who respect his career, women who have come from nothing and made something out of themselves and finally women who don't want a man with lack of character. The feminist vote is rapidly becoming, to coin your words, irrelevant. :)

"None can move moderate democrats."

Spike, all due respect....that's been the GOP's problem all along. We don't or shouldn't care about the moderate on either side. We need someone who will stand up for what they believe and not fall for everything. The country is wanting truth in practice and walk. Dr. Carson's race indeed factors in and that is what the left fears.

I certainly hope so, although short of withholding funding for parts of it (which they lack the nads to do), there's not much they can do. It's bad law.

Obama has good intentions. Healthcare for millions. However, "the road to he[[ is paved with good intentions"

The ACA is failing just like any other socialist/public program. Our courts, prisons, policing and military are all failing because the government runs them. I trust an unelected corporation to run anything better than elected politicians. "What we need is a king, and every now and then if the king's not doing a good job, we kill him." -George Carlin

Rick424- The the ACA is failing just fine all on it's own. We don't need to help it along that is for sure. How can you say it is a good Law Rick? Insurance with 5 and 10 thousand dollar deductibles? People that had insurance they liked who now have none? all of this for approx. 10 percent of the people that dont have it? STAY OUT OF OUR HEALTHCARE !

What ever happened to Jessie Ventura? I would vote for him in a sec. He is a man with a plan and the results to back them up.

Don't worry, I am sure that us conservatives can put forward a candidate that can beat Hillary. Hillary is all you got? Right? You better do better than that as she has many questions to answer (Benghazi) and has the stigma of being a Clinton, an obviously power hungry one at that. You liberals are angry at Dr. Ben Carson because he embarrassed Obama at a breakfast concerning his "healthcare" plan. And he should have because it stinks. You lefties are far too left for the average American, you better hope something good comes out of the ACA or your party will be destroyed. I again ask this question, can you really feel good about standing up for the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, is that who you want representing you?

Spike, my comment wasn't directed at you. I understand that there are liberals like yourself that don't use the race card as their first defense of Obama.

I don't dislike Dr. Carson. He is irrelevant. This has absolutely nothing to do with race. Carson, Jindal, Perry, Santorum, Cruz and Rubio are not viable candidates. None can move moderate democrats. None can energize the youth vote and none will cause women to move from previously held positions. Either you make a "statement" and lose or move towards the center.

As you like to say, you aren't fooling anyone. You label anyone that disagrees with Obama a racist, yet you can disagree with a black man because he's not a liberal and a so called "opportunist" and you're not racist? A lot of you liberals would have a really hard time justifying YOUR disagreements with a conservative black president without being labeled racists after you opened the door with your baseless claims. However, I would hope that conservatives wouldn't stoop to your level and use such a weak and cowardly defense.

Dig all you want Sham - you and I know the real reason you dislike Dr. Carson.

enigma has hit the nail on the head in astute observation - he is black. It is inconceivable that conservatives can actually like a black man, despite the false accusations from the progressives.

Actually Jerry, the Republican Party platform comes closer to my ideology, but most Republicans don’t follow those ideals except when they’re campaigning. I agree that a large libertarian vote could influence the Republican Party, but the Tea Party has had the same effect, which is why RHINOs and liberals are so adamant in their negativity where the Tea Party is concerned.

It’s time to call it a day; I’ll pick up on the discussion in the morning. Good night all.
