Anyone Know the Truth Re: Biden’s Iranian Connections?

    DNC Wrap-up: Day One a Waste

    The first night of the Democratic National Convention is (mercifully) over, and even for a political junkie, this was difficult to watch.

    Just curious, but did anyone catch the similarity between Michelle and Hillary?

    Having just concluded Michelle Obama’s speech before the DNC, I was struck by one thought ~ how similar her words tonight were to Hillary’s some sixteen years ago (actually, on July 13, 1992) before the same body. Did I just get a sense of deja-vu about a potential first lady, and future presidential candidate-in-waiting?Hey, it is just an observation.theBlurRoger

    I was told if President Bush were re-elected that dissent would be shut down.

    It appears that Obama is asking the Justice Department to look into the ad tying him to Ayers. He and his campaign have “forcefully” ie threatened news stations about running the ad….I only have one thing to say….Thank you Barack for helping this video be seen by at least a million to two million more people because EVERY one loves to see what a whiner | Read More »
