“It is a long held tradition that the justice department will fight to uphold federal law, but Obama is just being incredibly stupid on this one. Why, at this time, when the public is so clearly in favor of ending DADT would the Obama administration appeal? Are they afraid if they don't the dems will suffer on November 2nd? Makes absolutely no sense and I can not defend Obama on this one.”
“Emmanuel is doing exactly what all of his critics would have expected he would do. Despite conventional thinking, Hollywood is a big, corporate machine more closely aligned with the Koch Brothers than the AFL-CIO”

“It isn't bad enough that the Hollywood "heavyweights" helped Obama into office, now they are going to destroy the country a city at a time. Though, Chicago, run by Dems for years, is a political and economic swamp.”
“What is with HP? What is your game? A bastion of "progressive" ideals and ideas? Not so much. This is just another in a long line of articles written by conservative AP hacks that HP has given undeserved voice. Is Ari an na secretly working for the Republican party to discourage Democrats from voting in an attempt to protect her fortune from Democratic financial regulations?”
“I do not have a light attitude towards "you guys". In fact, I think your pride in anti-intellectualism is frightening. Your insistence on excusing bigotry and your lack of understanding and acceptance of an ever changing demographic threatens the American way of life. I am confident, however , that before you have a chance to cause real damage, you will drown yourselves in that little cup of tea.”

“I respect your opinion, but I must play devil's advocate....I am an independent, didn't vote for Obama, but that does not make me a bigot.
I am in favor of the tea party's premise of small government, but that does not make me a bigot.
I was ashamed of Pelosi mandating the voting for the health care bill to find out what was in it, but that does not make me a bigot.
I will not vote for Palin if she wins the nomination after announcing her candicacy on February 6, 2011, but that does not make me a bigot.
I am a hard working American, my daddy is a WWII veteran and loves his country, and my son is fighing the war. You can keep your assessment of bigotry to yourself.”
“ann, there you go again, infiltrating those liberal blogs! Boy, you're sure showing us progressive what's what, aren't you? Every time you post I am reminded just how many Americans are incapable of rational thought.”

“Oh, that's OK. I sort of have a light attitude towards you guys, too.
I think you're hauling around a load of concrete being far Left.
“Ms. Goff, time and again I read your postings which, quite frankly, are nothing more than arguments with yourself. President Obama was not comparing himself to the alternative when he mentioned AIDS funding, but making a statement about a Republican congress that refuses to work with him.
Your comparison to the intentional experiments conducted by our government on innocent victims may very well contain sufficient hyperbole to get folks to listen, but it is way off base and, quite frankly, childish, somewhat like Sarah Palin saying that because she lives in Alaska she can see Russia.”
