As a senator, Obama supported a failed attempt by Democrats to stall President George W. Bush's nomination of Samuel Alito to the high court.
Let's not forget the usual political game the Agent of Change? played as Senator when it came to to confirm John Roberts for Chief Justice.
Democrat Barack Obama was inclined to vote for John G. Roberts Jr. for Supreme Court chief justice back in 2005, but decided against it when told it could hurt him in the Democratic presidential contest, said the senator's chief of staff.
Mr. Obama praised his aide for guiding him back to a politically expedient position.
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
About the only error in the piece is that the call Barney Frank a Senator.
Fidel Castro criticized former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney for defending American interrogation methods against terror suspects saying in comments published Wednesday that torture should never be used to extract information.
Like this from a documentary on Castro that aired on PBS...
ARMANDO VALLADARES, POLITICAL PRISONER (SPANISH):I have the sad memory that three of my cellmates were murdered in prison. The first was Roberto López Chávez. He was sixteen years old when he was first imprisoned. Another of my cell mates was Pedro Luis Boitel, a student leader Castro hated with all his heart. Boitel went on a hunger strike and Fidel Castro ordered that his cell door not be opend until he died of thirst. He died of thirst fifty-three days later, like these, hundreds and hundreds of assassinations and torture.
"Prison was a long agony from which I emerged alive because of God's will. I had to go on hunger strikes, mount other types of protests. Terrible. On and off, I spent a total of sixteen years in solitary confinement, constantly being told that I was never going to get out alive, that I had been sentenced to die in prison. They were very cruel, to the fullest extent of the word... I was tortured on several occasions, [I] was subjected to all kinds of horrors, all kinds, including the puncturing of my genitals. Once during a hunger strike a prison guard tried to crush my stomach with his boot... Terrible things."
Guevara's first assignment was to oversee executions at an infamous prison, La Cabaña. Between 1959 and 1963, approximately 500 men were killed under his watch. Many individuals imprisoned at La Cabaña, including human rights activist Armando Valladares, allege that Guevara took a personal interest in the interrogation, torture, and execution of political prisoners.
China has some of the worst pollution problems in the world (Linfen in Shanxi province is pictured). Nearly two-thirds of China's 343 major cities currently fail to meet the nation's air quality standards.
Goober, err Goodner then shows what a waste his education has been when he says...
"Our road blockade at the RNC and our peaceful preparations beforehand are protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. We have the right to speak out against the policies of our government..."
The First Amendment doesn't protect your road blockade.
Goober's, err Goodner's all about his free speech rights, but goes out of his way to shut down others speech.
Next time Goober, err Goodner leaves, don't let him back in the country.
