Madeleine Albright to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom
A senior administration official confirms the first woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The Medal of Freedom is the nation’s highest civilian honor.
A White House release described the Presidential Medal of freedom as an honor presented to individuals "who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."
The White House had previously announced former University of Tennesee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt and former Polish Underground officer Jan Karski, who was one of the first people to provide accounts of the Holocaust to the outside world, will also receive honor.
A ceremony honoring them will take place sometime later this year at the White House.
I'd vote for her for President IF she could be eligible to run!
Albright is more deserving of the Sycophant of the Year award for mindlessly backing Clinton's lie that he "never had sex with that woman".
MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT IN 2012 !!!
More awards ceremonies, and photo ops. That's what Obama does, since he can't seem to govern, or run on his failed record.
HAHAHAHA!!! DON'T WORRY HOWARD, HE IS STILL THE PRESIDENT NO MATTER WHAT YOU REPUBLITARDS SAY. AT LEAST HE IS NOT TAKING A VACATION AGAIN LIKE BUSH DID. YOU SHOULD WORRY ABOUT THE DO NOTHING CONGRESS BECAUSE OF OBSTRUCTIONIST REPUBLTARDS THERE IS NOTHING FOR OBAMA TO SIGN.
member 2012 – I saw your post on the other site so I wanted to bring it here soo you would see this.
You are about the only person I know of that thinks Al Sharpton is a decent person. It doesn't surprise me that you, as a lib, think a person who has never worked in his life, that has made his name off of race baiting is a decent person. Have you ever heard of Tawana Brawley? Bush is history (just like lib dems). You libs don't have a leg to stand on. Everyone knows the first two years of this administration was a total loss for this country because the liberal dems had TOTAL CONTROL.
It is comical that you make a comment about nothing to sign the day after a bipartisan bill looks like it will pass in both the senate and the house and BO has already said he will veto it.
Make that two people. Rev. Sharpton is number 2 on the list of the current top 15 civil rights leaders.
The problem is you haven't taken off your white sheet and dunce cap and looked any further than what they told you at the last redneck KKK clan meeting.
AL SHARPTON HAS HIS PLACE IN THE CONVERSATION. HE IS BLACK AND HE TENDS TO SPEAK FOR RACE ISSUES BECAUSE HE IS NOT BLIND LIKE SOME PEOPLE WOULD LIKE US TO BE. THERE IS STILL A RACIAL DIVIDE IN AMERICA WHETHER YOU ACCEPT IT OR NOT. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING A LIBERAL OR A CONSERVATIVE, IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH BEING A REALIST. THE REALITY IS THERE A RACIST PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO WANT TO MANIPULATE POLITICS BEHIND THE SHADOWS, CLOSED DOORS, AND IN THE OPEN AIRWAVES. WE KNOW WHO AL SHARPTON AS A PUBLIC FIGURE, AND I RESPECT HIM FOR BEING OUT THERE EVEN IF I DO NOT AGREE WITH SOME OF HIS MORE EXTREME OPINIONS.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT RACE BAITING IS, THE FISH KEEP BITING. SOMETIMES THE FISH JUST HAS TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT IT IS A FISH AND MOVE ON.
Jean, similar to the president, Sharpton is showbiz. Sharpton made his name and his fame as the one to lead a protest movement after every racially charged incident in New York over the last 30 years (and many elsewhere in the U.S.) Especially early in his career, he seemed content and even eager to inflame racial hatreds at the risk of violence, as long as it gave him publicity and power
I have seen this guy race baiting for at least 30 years. I will never understand why this guy was put on the air and still has a show on the air. Here are some of the fine things I have heard come out of his mouth.
"blaks have been brainwashed into voting for democrats".
“We went with a Party that stood up for the Civil Rights Act of ’64 and Voting Rights Act of ’65.” The House version of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by only 61 percent of that Chamber’s Democrats versus 80 percent of the Republicans. More importantly, it was Republicans that ended a Democrat filibuster preventing a vote on this bill in the Senate. 82 percent of Republicans voted for cloture versus 66 percent of Democrats.
So this is evidence that your "decent man" will lie to make his point. This is not what a decent man would do.
The television show HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel showed a 1983 FBI videotape in which Al Sharpton is seen talking about laundering drug money with former mobster Michael Franzese, a Mafioso-turned-undercover-FBI informant posing as a cocaine dealer.
I am sure you remember the incident with Tawana Brawley Jean, what are your thoughts on that?
I'll admit, he has mellowed a bit since being stabbed at a protest, but this guy is a divider, a racist, and most likely the most hateful person on TV today.
@John you waded into this one.
Describing anyone in the national spotlight that news outlets will often cover as being in showbiz covers a large territory including: Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Mark Rubio, Chris Christie, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, Rudy Guillani , ....and a whole range of right-wing people.
From now on when one of these people pops-up in front of some news anchor I will immediately identify them as SHOWBIZ.
Being news sources I had considered they would always cover any past or present President of the United States, or someone who has previously run for president, or has a voice that speaks to a certain electorate...and the Rev. Al Sharpton as founder and president of the not-for-profit civil rights organization: National Action Network who ran for president of the United States in 2004 would certainly qualify.
OH and BTW...for the most divisive person on TV....try Rush Limbag.
People you listed have held office or worked in private sector jobs and they are not TV clebs. For you to say Romney or McCain or Perry are celebs is ridiculous. The others I can go either way on.
I'll agree, Rush is the most divisive, but he usually doesn't outright lie as Sharpton does – and, this is the BIG ONE – Rush is called out constantly, unlike Sharpton who is very close to Rush in his divide of America.
Seems you can neither read competently, grasp and process information intelligently, or understand that working for a non-profit organization is both work and a valid job description. My explaining what you should know without being told is a waste of my time. But here goes!
It is obvious that the current President of the United States (regardless of who that person is) will be interviewed and covered probably daily. That is not Showbiz . What the president does is simply in the daily interest of people around the world. That is why there is a Press Room at the White House and why new lighting was erected for TV cameras to cover the White House.
You do understand you do not need to listen, read, or comment about what is covered...that is your choice. If that is your feeling then for the love of mike quit posting moronic messages.
Persons like the Rev. Sharpton who have not only run for president, and who is founder of The National Action Network (a non-profit civil rights organization which has offices in 45 states) ... .will be interviewed when the topic is relevant, and sometimes will be interviewed with more frequency (due to our diverse population) than some of the yoyos I listed in the first paragraph.
Jean, you are the same person who told us Romney's wife didn't work, but you are telling us Sharpton does. Your priorities are screwed up like most libs.
Slo-burn is SHOWBIZ. Celeb parties in the WH is SHOWBIZ. Lieing about a congressman saying he compared college loans to cancer as a comedy skit is celeb as it gets.
Two posts and nothing from you on Tawana Brawley? I knew you would avoid that one.
Say what you will. I watch Sharpton almost every night. He lies every time I watch him to try to make a point that the repubs are evil – that is not s decent person any way you cut it.
I watch and read everything. I just do not have a bias view like you. I think both parties a ruining this country right now. Our leaders, including Obama, feel entitled – as if they are royalty – and they are far from it. As a person who lives of the governmnet, you have your opinion, As a person who has worked and paid taxes since I was 11 years old – I have mine. Government is way to big and spends way to much and Obama wants it bigger and wants to spend more and more. You like that, I do not.
Sure, sure. BO's played more golf, Michelle's been on more talk shows, Panetta spends more taxpayer money on travel than Bush and his entourage did. But no matter, your support for the BO runs only as deep as your hatred of Bush. Pretty poor justification of BO's dismal record.
Howie is very ignorant as per usual....and hasn't done his research.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom has been awarded to people who have well served this country. It has been awarded since President Harry Truman was president.
George W. Bush awarded 81 Medals of Freedom at similar ceremonies, during his presidency, and there were cameras present for photo ops at each of those events..
President Obama awarded the Medal of Freedom to President George H. W. Bush.
Awarding medals is part of any president's job.
well give her the medal...and one to clinton as well... they deserve it...they must know how the world laughed at them as they and their entourage paraded over the globe trying to look important... embarrassing!
@jerry Embarrassing like keeping us out of new wars. How about those two wars started under Condoleezza Rice. Where were the WMD?
cllinton did not keep us out of war...he set it up by ignoring the threat...because it benefitted him...he is morally bankrupt. Bush no sooner took office and he was faced with 9/11...so take another look...dummie!
Howard,where's your elustreous ex pres Bush,hiding from Interpol,they've told him stay stateside or else.An international warrent on human rights violations has been served,Pres.Obama has protected this fool since leaving office,a fact not widely known until a recent trip to Haiti.So don't talk about any Democrates until you can clean up the republicans horrendous past,that will be one monumental job,I assure you..
Really? So we all don't think you are a moron could you point us to information that backs up what you are trying to say?
Do you lib dems really think constantly bringing up Bush will help BO get re-elected? Apparently so. Good luck with that. Even the college kids are seeing through BO and people like you.
John,check out the indictments against Bush on this website;war is a crime.org.Read to your hearts content,I read facts not the bull shit you republicans try to feed us.Read about waterboarding at Guantanamo,if that's not human right abuse ,than I don't know what is!!Pres.Obama is protecting that ass,that's why he didn't go to Geneva to speak,plain and simple,real pathedic,just pathedic.Hope I didn't break your bubble about your hero!!!
folks you must understand jean2009 is a black single older woman...then you know where she is coming from. To liken Sharpton and some of these others as good people is just idiocy.... IF (and that is a big IF) Sharpton is #2 in the civil rights...whatever...then I really feel for this movement.
We travel extensively over seas and this attitude that America is racist is just not true... American has been hijacked by these Marxist and the deterioration of America morally and economically is proof positive of this. If you wish to see racism go to europe, africa, asia, or the middle east and you will see racism... my goodness we have a black president who most likely was not born a true naturalized American...who grew up in racist Hawaii and Indonesia....and WE elected him tho the highest office in the world...NOW IS THAT RACIST?
WE UNDERSTAND JEAN2009 ALRIGHT BECAUSE SHE IS A HUMAN BEING. YOU HOWEVER ARE POND SCUM, ALWAYS SPOUTING VILE LIES ABOUT OBAMA AND THE USA. I SOMETIMES WONDER IF YOU EVEN LIVE IN THE SAME PLANET, YOU SOUND SO OUT OF TOUCH IT"S LIKE YOUR TALKING FROM URANUS.
Jerry, not bad, not bad at all!!
I GUESS YOU HAVE TO SHOW LOVE TO YOUR KLAN MATES ONCE IN A WHILE. LOL
Hey, member 2012 is back!!! You are definitely a "throbing member"!!!
Truth is: I am a 77 year old, white great-grandmother, married 58 years to the same man...the problem is racist YOU just can't deal with facts.
Fact is.... In the past I too have lived overseas, and it is people with attitudes like yours that have given the people in those other countries solid reasons to feel we are a country with a large population of racist.
Intelligent people world-wide can identify the racist KKK sympathizers wherever they are. Remember many of those countries may not have dealt directly with the KKK, but then the KKK and the Nazi's are the one and the same philosophy.
"folks you must understand jean2009 is a black single older woman...then you know where she is coming from."
You are trying to make the point that we are not racist, and yet you open with a comment that implies that this lady only thinks Al Sharpton is good because she is also black. If your intent was to shoot holes in your point before trying to make it, then congratulations – you succeeded with flying colors.
"To liken Sharpton and some of these others as good people is just idiocy.... IF (and that is a big IF) Sharpton is #2 in the civil rights...whatever...then I really feel for this movement."
It goes without saying that Al Sharpton has jumped on every issue with even the slightest hint of even a possibility of being viewed as racist. This does not however make him a bad person. I would guarantee you that, whether or not his stance is ludicrous or disingenuous, he is in his mind standing up for something right, for something he believes in. You yourself accuse liberals of being marxist on a regular basis, even though you have yet to provide any evidence whatsoever. I would wager in your head you are standing up for what you feel is right. The point is, you are in the same category in which you have placed Al Sharpton. By your own definition, one would have to be an idiot to believe you are a good person.
"We travel extensively over seas and this attitude that America is racist is just not true..."
I agree that America as a whole is not racist. This does not mean that there are not some (few, many, whatever) racists and racist movements in the US. Their existence is undeniable – the only thing in question is whether there was or was not racism in any particular event, political, criminal, etc.
"American has been hijacked by these Marxist and the deterioration of America morally and economically is proof positive of this."
Ignoring the fact that marxism is such a ridiculous minority movement in the US and by that alone your statement is likewise ridiculous, where is your "proof positive"? Morally? Whose morals? Yours? Christianity's? Atheists? The economy? We have a capitalist economy – to argue that it has been hijacked by marxism requires such a blatant denial of all factual evidence to the contrary as to be nearly insultingly ignorant. The only thing that leads the economy astray is the ever-changing whim of greed.
"If you wish to see racism go to europe, africa, asia, or the middle east and you will see racism..."
If you wish to see racism go anywhere. I lived in Augusta, GA for several years and the shear ignorance I experienced was mind-blowing. Location is irrelevant. It's the people who are racist and ignorant, and they exist everywhere.
"my goodness we have a black president who most likely was not born a true naturalized American...who grew up in racist Hawaii and Indonesia....and WE elected him tho the highest office in the world...NOW IS THAT RACIST?"
Most likely not born a true naturalized American? You are joking, right? He was born in the United States to at least one American parent. Case closed. Your implication has been disproven so many times that it speaks volumes of your clarity of thought that you would choose to bring it up again. But hey, as long as you will believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you, and it's a steal!
Jean is a white 77 year old woman born in a log cabin in the midwest... grew up during the 50's and 60's.
jerry......what was embarrassing was Sarah Palin running as VP. Talk about the laughing stock of the world!!! If you had half the brains and class as those two you might not be such a loser.
The real laughing stock is John Edwards, from almost president to maybe going to jail.
John Edwards damaged himself...whereas George W. Bush and Dick Cheney should both have been impeached for the massive damage done to everyone in this country for their war-profiteering and welfare for the rich.
How about Clinton – should he have been impeached? Given his history, I get the feeling he carries a "big stick"....
Did Bill Clinton's infidelity tank the economy? Did he weaken the economy with tax breaks for the rich and taking us into two unfunded wars... one of which was initiated under the false pretense of WMD, and lying to congress?
Was he guilty of treason, bribery and high crimes of misdemeanors?
That is your standard Jean – if it is you are voting for Romney.
No not voting for Gordon Gekko.
John Edwards – the poster child for the 21st century leftylibdem politician.
Right Jean – Sharpton is good, but Romney is bad?
He will be a fine president and he is what this country needs at this time.
In MA yesterday they tried to pass a law that would give the state more oversight over EBT cards. The arguments by the lib dems were classic and typical. Here are a couple – "we must allow women to get their nails done with this money because they need to look good for job interviews" Gov. Deval Patrick.
This is typical of your side Jean. This is why people are angry. When it was suggested that card holders should not be able to purchase beer with their EBT money a rep from Cambridge actually argued that the money belongs to them once they get it from the state and "what they do with it is nobody's business.
Jean, even you must see how bas this stuff is. BTW, the bill passed the House and is on it's way to the Senate. If this passes it is going to get very interesting in the People's Republic of MA.
@poor, poor jean2009,
Clinton got in trouble becuase he lied to Congress, a federal offense, no?
it is not the welfare for the rich that caused harm to this country...it was the welfare to the masses... the wealthy create wealth and jobs....until the marxists run them out of the country...that is. Seems's those Bush wars were supported by both sides of the isle..except obama that is...he played it safe and perhaps voted against them, one of his very few votes.
If that were true, then it would go hand in hand that the increased wealth in the hands of the wealthy would have led to more jobs. I suppose the wealth creation is correct, but the problem is they have created wealth only for themselves, while the rest of the country hasn't even seen an increase in personal income enough to match with inflation.
Your comment about "marxists" running people out of the country is also patently ludicrous. There are far fewer marxists in the US than other poliical parties. If you are attempting to label liberals as marxists, that is about as ignorant as labeling conservatives as fascists. Additionally, your attempt to paint anything our current president does as negative smacks of the same party-line rhetoric that ballooned when the GOP stated that it would do everything within its power to see that he failed.
Let's get one thing straight – the economic harm was not as the result of one party doing something stupid – there were countless factors, ranging from oversight issues to simple corporate greed that combined to cause the situation we are in now. If you cannot recognize that, then you are ignorant – which puts you on the wrong side of any issue.
On another note – no one at all "ran" businesses "out of the country". This was an economic decision based in costs and regulations. In third world countries, many businesses can pay employees pennies on the dollar for unhealthily long hours with no benefits. These companies then can turn around and sell their products in many cases for what would turn a fair profit here even if they were paying a fair wage and providing benefits, thus reaping greater profits. The problem is greed – it always has been, and always will be.
I agree with some of what you wrote. But, your comments here I have issue with – "your attempt to paint anything our current president does as negative smacks of the same party-line rhetoric that ballooned when the GOP stated that it would do everything within its power to see that he failed". Did you mean to suggest that everything this president has done has been positive for this country? I sure do not. He is one of the most divisive presidents I have seen in my lifetime. If I were a repub (and I am not), I would do everything in my power to limit BO to one term. Repubs see it as a theif coming into their home and taking what they have to give it to someone else who may or may not need it. If a theif came to your house would you see that as a positive thing? Is it something you would work to prevent from happening again?
The dems constantly use that "they are working to get him out after one term" line. It is a stupid line and if dems think it is wrong from the repubs to think this way they are ignorant to what happens in politics. I am sure when Romney get's in the dems will try to limit him to 1 term.
"I agree with some of what you wrote. But, your comments here I have issue with – "your attempt to paint anything our current president does as negative smacks of the same party-line rhetoric that ballooned when the GOP stated that it would do everything within its power to see that he failed". Did you mean to suggest that everything this president has done has been positive for this country? I sure do not. "
No, I said that everything he has done has *not* been negative. I'm a little at a loss as to how you could make the leap you did.
"He is one of the most divisive presidents I have seen in my lifetime. If I were a repub (and I am not), I would do everything in my power to limit BO to one term."
To say this, you are ignoring everything he has attempted to do to encourage bipartisanism. President Obama has bucked the party line plenty of times, and Democrats voting against some of what he wants is evidence of that. You can say you feel he is divisive, but that ignores the whole story. Is he perfect? Of course not – but it would be far more accurate to say that the *government* is the most divisive government ever seen.
"Repubs see it as a theif coming into their home and taking what they have to give it to someone else who may or may not need it. If a theif came to your house would you see that as a positive thing? Is it something you would work to prevent from happening again?"
If a thief came to my house I would of course stop him. On the other hand, if a man I hated came up with a good idea, I would not fight him over it – because the idea is what is important, not who is giving it. The GOP has accused the President of not doing things, and then when he does them immediately accuses him of doing them like it was against the idea from the beginning. This has happened countless times. My problem isn't the GOP trying to get elected and push conservative policy – it's the "make the President fail at all costs". That shows me that the GOP cares more about winning than what is good for the country.
"The dems constantly use that "they are working to get him out after one term" line. It is a stupid line and if dems think it is wrong from the repubs to think this way they are ignorant to what happens in politics. I am sure when Romney get's in the dems will try to limit him to 1 term."
Out after one term? If you are attempting to reinterpret what has actuall been said – that the GOP swore to do everything in its power to make him fail – then you have completely missed the point. If the GOP has better ideas to fix things then more power to it – but when the GOP's goal is to make the President fail, then it has become about as anti-America as it can get. If a president fails, it should be because of the President's incompetence – not because one party or the other specifically tries to sabotage the term. Make no mistake, that is exactly what thbe GOP said it set out to do.
And now the disclaimer – note that I have not "extolled the glories" of the Democrats. It goes without saying there is idiocy on both sides. My issue is with jumping all over everything the President does, lobbing false definitions and accusations, and completely ignoring the fact that a President is not the be all and end all of what happens. The president can suggest legislation and can sign it into law or veto it. The true failure rests in the hands of the Legislative Branch.
We do not presently have a president who is fiddling while Rome burns...we have a Republican legislature who are sitting on their hands while Rome burns. It is a do nothing legislature.
Frankly to lob the term divisive around....we can conclusively say George W. Bush was the most divisive in the last 50 years. We are currently paying for his mistakes and will be paying for them for many years to come.
Oh and I love the way George W. Bush described himself as a media creation.....call that at least knowing when you are Showbiz.
If you are going for so divisive that we went to war with each other...try Abraham Lincoln.

Good ideas are not what the repubs think BO has. That is the problem. Especially if Obamacare and the Arizona are shot down by the courts. If that happens this president will be seen as a failure. This brings us back to my point, the repos are simply defending what they stand for. Just like you said you would do if a theif entered your house. We may disagree with what they do or want, but it is disingenuous to say they are working to get him out when they simply disagree with much of what he stands for.
BTW, I have to mention that I think your post(s) are great and provoke me to think. Thanks for that...
Jean – your post are getting more and more hateful and you post is the most divisive on this story.
Compassionate Conservatism is kicking the less fortunate in the head while speaking nicely about them. Stupid statement, no response needed.
Compassionate Conservatism is reducing the tax burden on the wealthy to ease their suffering. They pay the majority of taxes in this country.
Compassionate Conservatism is reducing government services, programs and benefits with a smile. How many trillion are we in debt? I don't see anyone from either party smiling.
Compassionate Conservatism is keeping one’s intolerance and bigotry out of the public eye. – another ignorant statement that doesn't deserve a response.
Compassionate Conservatism is fighting against minimum wage increases with every fiber of ones’ being, while alleviating their pain by allowing them to buy all the guns and ammo they can carry. Minimum wages went up and entry level jobs were eliminated.
Compassionate Conservatism is using Mexicans as maids, baby sitters, roofers and dishwashers before they are deported. This is the most ignorant statement of them all.
Compassionate Conservatism is eliminating Affirmative Action to give the poor oppressed white men a little sympathy. Many black people and other minorities in this country think it is time to eliminate AA in this country for many different reasons.
Compassionate Conservatism forcing women into a system of illegal backroom abortions but with a happy face and a copy of the Ten Commandments. A total lie here – because people like you want the governmnet to pay for birth control and abortions.
Compassionate Conservatism is fighting smaller class size in public schools but forcing them to all pray together as compensation. Money spent on education in this country is double ANY OTHER COUNTRY.
Compassionate Conservatism reduces benefits to veterans but for their benefit throws anyone who burns a flag in jail. Another ignorant statement.
Compassionate Conservatism is executing more people for less reason in a shorter time while giving the rest of us the violent vengeance we all need." This coming from a person who supported the Black Panthers in their attempt to knock off the person who killed T. Martin...
GM (Govt motors) is building plants all over the world and opening stores...GE files a 57,000 page tax return and avoids taxes (croney capitalism)...and nut cases llike jean 2009 think obama is a wonderful socialist guy....
Fact is these businesses will do what they haave to do to compete and many of them just cant compete in the US and we have a president who continues to burden them with higher taxes higher energy costs and more regulation... so if you put this all together you have a president who will climb in with anyone who will write him a check...no morals and certainly no scruples. This is who obama was and is and will be...an empty shirt with his hand out.
oh my the libs are still on Bush and Cheney...now we have biden who cant stay out of his own way and obama who is failing at everything he has touched. Obama the "self described law professor" being spanked by the supreme court...the middle east on fire and getting more unstable daily, N Korea's nukes, Russia pushing us out of eastern europe...unemployment claims increasing, inflation...and I could go on and on....and you fool libs talk about President George Bush and VP Richard Cheney...two intellegent experienced world class leaders... I guess you are all begining to realize the contrast of what we had and what we now have... Mitt will clean up the mess.
great list Pat Summit wonderful coach Toni Morrison great author John Glen patriot and astronut,Bob Dylan musican poet. Albright is a gem and smart as a whip. Where is the repo outrage.? Probably don't have a clue as to who half these people are. So busy bashing the president and listening to faux news that they have no time to actually read . But thats because they want to do away with education. Can't miss what you don't have is their theory. You can tell this by the stupid comments made by howard, ,jerry and sponge bob.
It must be that you are so smart and everyone else in the world is not up to your standard. LOL!!!
The hate from the left is telling.. When you have nothing else, hate... Even posts that start out nice end with hate, like this one. Keep it up libs, I am sure it will help gain votes for your side. LOL!!!
John,its not hate,its just being tired of the gross amounts of stupidity that you republican hypocrites dish out.Your president Bush is a hiding war criminal served after leaving office on human rights viations by the Geneva convention and is being protected by Pres.Obama,a fact you can look up anywhere.Also Bush spent 477 days on vacation in his first 2 years,also a recorded fact.So don't point fingers republicans before you clean up your messes.Your typical hypocritical morons,also s fact...
For 8 years Dems whined and cried and pushed out "gross amounts of stupidity" as well. I'm not sure why you guys forget about that! Hang on for a little while longer and it wil be your turn again! All this is cyclic
Maybe so Steveo,but at least we tried reaching across the aisle,didn't we.We weren't labeled the party of NO,you were...We saw the extremism with your teabaggin bullshit comin a long time ago,started by Armey ,Koch brothers ,T.Boone Pickens and their crews,nothing new.People are getting sick with their anti Obama shit,just racism in a different wrapper,plain and simple.Just grow a pair,grow up and say your president Bush screwed up ,that's all,but you hypocrites will fight it tooth and nail,fighting with lies with your last breath,total ignorence...
I have stated over and over again how BOTH parties have failed us! In areas Bush did fail! The problem I have is this: EVERYTIME somebody criticizes President Obama your response is"but Bush! So Bush is your standard?
Both sides tried reaching across the aisle. You know what the problem was, Pete?
The right reached across with ideas that they knew were not going to be accepted by the left as those ideas were against the core beliefs of the left.
The left reached across with ideas they knew were not going to be accepted by the right as those ideas violated the core beliefs of the right!
In short, one side wants the other to violate their core beliefs. Neither side budged! You can make it appear the left was willing to violate all their beliefs for the good of the country, if you want Pete! You'd be very wrong and you know it! Both parties have let us down!
Funny, how I haven't heard you mention how President Obama dropped any ball yet! Keep pointing at the failures of the right and ignore the failures of the left!, Pete!
btw,. The the party of no label was given to the right by the left. You really think the left was going to label themselves that?
why would anyone give Albright a medal? If it we not for the incompetance and selfishness of the clinton machine we would never have had 9/11 in the first place. clinton, like obama, ignores what does not personally advance his own power and aclaim...these two are morally bankrupt. But, nothing new about fools getting medals and awards.
