What a dope. It's a cold hard historical fact in congressional voting records. There is no partisan playing with the numbers, so you probably can't read it.

Any number of sites will give you the actual historical record. Try it. You won't like it.

That wasn't a question monkeypit. It was an utterance of questionable intelligence. Read up and get back to the adult conversation.

lone-he won't find anything Ike did for civil rights either. Or any Republican after Lincoln. Or Bush. Kool aid is hard to put down after awhile.

The civil rights/voting rights acts were fought by a large margin of Dems compared to Republicans. The Dems didn't give the changes to anyone. MLK forced it upon the government. Since, the Dems have claimed it and perpetuated the phony movements to keep in power and keep the pot stirred so academics would have something to complain about.

"nonfiction-make yourself useful and ask why all black people voted for Obama."

Blacks have predominantly voted democrat since the civil rights movement in 1960s. There wasn't a real swing in this election. Republicans have done nothing to try to win them back. I don't have to ask them a simple understnading of history provides the answer.

The CBO said fewer people would be in the workforce due to Obamacare because of people's voluntary retirement or semiretirement. One thing about people who want to believe something is bad is, they stop reading too soon. Early retirement is a good thing.

God does not exist, poverty does exist. Voting for a party that is totally against workers rights, consumer rights , civil rights makes no sense? Its too bad people follow there beloved political party on the left or right and we get no candidates from the center where most people are ?

Yes, credence and the same thing was done with obamacare. When they asked people if they approved of Obamacare they said no. But they agreed with all the major components of it. Then the same people were in favor of the Affordable Care Act but not Obamacare. Majority of people will change there answers in polls and surveys based on wording.

You must be stupid for believing that a few select people who are exit polled are a true makeup of the electorate. Do we really want to go around and ask the uneducated people around here why they vote the way they do? It would probably reflect pretty poorly on republicans.

Why because they believe the earth is over 6000 years old? They don't think a woman's body can prevent unwaited pregnancies? They believe in equal rights for all? or because they think everyone should have access to healthcare?....... NO, BECAUSE THEY ARE STUPID, STUPID, They were read McCain's platform (presented as BHO's) and the fools said they agreed with everything in it. Are you one of them? Stupid, that is?

I never was a fan of Obamacare, but it was an attempt to fix are very badly broken healthcare system. It was often the republican rebuttal to the single payer. Single payer would be the route we would go if pockets weren't getting stuffed on both sides by pharmcuetical and insurance companies. So of course these companies run smear campaigns and throw words like communism and socialism around and people think its the worst thing in the world.

That's funny loneriderrr1. It will take Obama 11 years to eliminate 2.5 million jobs. According to the Bureau_of_Labor_Statistics it only took Bush one year (2008) to loose 2.6 million jobs.
