Wait, that can't be true, it was all his fault when oil prices rose. I thought he controls everything?!

Reminds me of this: Newt Gingrich's $2.50 gas promise - Feb. 24, 2012

Obama General Discussion, vol. 5

They're more worried that this could cause a flooding of gas/oil because it's down to about $40/barrel. It's nice now, but let's hope the long term effects aren't as bad as they're predicting.
On a point about Obama and politics. It's really sad how both sides of the spectrum seem to play a tug of war of how bad the economy is so they can blame the opponent. They only want the economy to be good if they can take credit. I don't care who is president as long as our country is on the right track. But the fact of the matter is, our country is not on the right track and most of the American people believe the same.
It's encouraging that John Boehner (who I have not been a fan of in the past) and some reps/dems are willing to try and make some immigration compromise. This problem is that radical liberals and radical conservatives are running their respective parties! Obama hasn't presented any immigration compromise that is even close to feasible and a lot of the republicans are just anti Obama and don't come up with any sort of plan but to chastise the president. That doesn't help much either!
January-June of 2015 will be very telling of our future as a nation. If we don't compromise, we're going to hell fast.

It's about time.

Of course the Republicans are completely 100% backwards on Cuba and still acting like it's 1960.

I'm not going to pretend to like Obama, but this is the right decision. In past UN resolutions the US was one of the small handful of countries to vote against the continuation of the blockade.

Once again Rand Paul wins the GOP IQ (and testes) test

Quote:
Rand Paul Breaks With Rubio and Bush Over Cuba

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is the latest potential presidential candidate to weigh in on policy changes to Cuba and the libertarian leaning Republican's position splits from other Republicans who are also considering a presidential run.

Paul told Tom Roten of News Talk 800 in West Virginia that the 50-year embargo "just hasn't worked" and normalizing relations with the island nation is "probably a good idea."

"If the goal is regime change, it sure doesn't seem to be working and probably it punishes the people more than the regime because the regime can blame the embargo for hardship," he said.

According to what I have read, Al Sharpton has been to the White House more than 70 times.

That to me, would be like a Republican president having the Grand Wizard of the KKK over for guidance and input.


I remember the night he won the election, Juan Williams (a black Fox News contributor) was asked about Obama being so far left politically would that be his policy.

Williams responded that he believed Obama would govern from the center (not the far left) and bring us together.

I really hoped he would.

He didn't.

Do you honestly believe Al Sharpton is the equivalent of the Grand Wizard of the KKK? Or is this just bullshit hyperbole?

Maybe Billy Graham or some other mega-famous squawking preacher (who is white, considering that's really what you're trying to say without actually saying it) would have been a more apt comparison, and potentially made your point.

And who's fault is that, his own or the "do nothing that is remotely supportive of anything Obama wants to do lest ye be labeled 'liberal' (which apparently many conservatives think is a horrendous insult, although I don't know a single true liberal who is actually upset when someone calls them that)" Congress he's had to deal with for the past 6 years?

Senator Robert Byrd - D - WV used to be a KKK member. He was President Pro Tempore of the US Senate. That meant he was third in line to the US Presidency. Talk about some baggage they let slide.

Has Sharpton ever lynched white people or perpetrated acts of terrorism against white people?

He also visited with Bush. Get your facts and analogies straight, otherwise you are just another race baiter.

Do you care to explain why you brought this up? The man denounced the KKK for decades and is now passed, what does this have to do with the current conversation? Are we to bring up past Republicans as well?
