“Pelosi is in the minority. John Boehner had to bring this bill to the floor for a vote. And it was a South Carolina Republican who sponsored the bill. No quid pro quo there.”

“I was talking about impeaching Bush when Pelosi said it was off the table and Obama said it was water under the bridge.”

“Elizabeth Warren was an absolute non-starter for Republicans. She would've never been confirmed, and this agency would've gone the duration of this administration without a director. She's gonna be a great Senator for Massachusetts.”

“It may be a close vote, but he'll be confirmed. The fact that the Republican Senate aides in this piece are unnamed says a lot. This administration has gone on the offensive on several fronts that benefit them politically, and it has the GOP on its heels.”

“She dumped him on the side of the road. That's somehow better than the back woods to you? I'm not buying her story, if she over medicated him, she should've called 911. These are tough times, I understand, you don't kill your kid! I'd kill myself first. Kids are defenseless, and as parents our ONLY job is to guard and nurture them. Forgive me if I have absolutely no sympathy for the mother.”

“She loses ALL credibility with the fact that it's pre-recorded. It's not a response, just red meat for the tea party. If the President were announcing Republican policies in the SOTU she'd give the same speech. She's a joke!”

“Let's not forget that Stevens was appointed by republican POTUS Gerald Ford. We never KNOW where on the political spectrum these justices fall in line until they start hearing cases and writing opinions. We should give justice Kagan the benefit of the doubt until she's had a body of work on the bench.”

“It is part of the democratic process in this country that anyone qualified, meeting the minimum requirements be able to run for public office. That's one of the many great things about our country and our system. But my god someone has got to put this guy out of his misery! A family member, or a close friend that's not a yes man. Someone has to tell this guy that as noble as the idea may be, his candidacy is doing more harm than good not only to the democratic party, but to himself, his family and community. Someone has got to get this guy to step aside.”

“Let's assume for argument's sake that Vitter is right and Maddow in fact DOESN'T look like a woman. What the hell does that have to do with ANYTHING?! If it were a conservative host nearly as intelligent and brilliant as Rachel, would this even be an issue? But because she eviscerates him and his Republican comrades on substantive issues to do with policy, or lack thereof, the only way to get back at her is to insult her personally. What a REAL MAN he is!”

“Please don't compare the suffering of the Irish to the Hell that was slavery in this country. Not only was slavery the law of the land but the racism was institutionalized and continued for generations after the emancipation. Yes there are plenty of cultures that have endured suffering around the world but please don't insult my forefathers by saying anyone in the past 1000 years have had it just as tough. The laws instituted after the end of Jim Crow to even the playing field still haven't nearly paid the debt that this country has done to my people.”

bkrider9 on Jun 13, 2010 at 08:20:41

“Agreed. Why do people often want to change the subject when the issue of African American slavery is raised? Yes the Irish suffered, but that doesn't change the fact that the African Americans and Native Americans suffered. Why is there room on the table for only one group of people to be discussed?

Fanned.”

All4ME on Jun 13, 2010 at 06:57:18

“I agree with you, Lawrence, but there is an interesting convergence:

It was the British that introduced slavery into this country, and it was also the British responsible for the Irish genocide -- they enforced the potato monoculture, which killed the Irish people's ability to sustain themselves when hit by early/late blight. This was considered intentional, as Britain at the time was trying to retain control of Ireland.

...sort of like wiping out herds of buffalo to get rid of Native Americans, and 'assimilating' Australian Aboriginal peoples...

So much horror in the world can be traced back to the need for control or dominance over other people (here's where we cite the Holocaust). Americans could learn something, with our need for power and domination. What is that about? Just live and let live, IMO.”
