Camber - This 2012....NOT 1973 or 1873. Aside your vicious (false-based) attack on Sen Byrd -- the late senator was an American hero and a patriot. He was one of few senators who opposed the criminal Bush's Iraq war. If we had listened to Byrd...Five thousand American lives and one hundred million Iraqi lives would have been saved.

Robert C. Byrd existed for one thing, and one thing only: the perpetuation of Robert C. Byrd. He was the worst sort of politician. We spent millions upon millions of dollars each year, monies shoveled into his state to prop up his reputation (and all-important chances of reelection!). It seemed as though Byrd's goal was to see to it that EVERYTHING in the state be named in his "honor".

Byrd was an awful, despicable man.

Robert Byrd was one of the worse Senators to ever grace those halls. He was purely political and toed the party line. He had no courage....a coward of a man. When he knew that Bill Clinton should have been impeached for lying under oath.....he did state that to be the case... and yet gave him a pass and voted for not impeaching him. He walked lock-step in unison with the Democrat party to block impeachment. He had no moral fortitude and gave up his country over party.

Byrd was a Klansman, and one of the Klans leaders. You progs would heroism or patriotism if they slapped you.
Rep. Allen West has been one of President Obama's most persistent critics throughout America's sluggish economic recovery. Yesterday, the Florida congressman highlighted ongoing minority unemployment.

As a Member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the House Small Business Committee, I am seriously concerned with the 13 percent unemployment number for Black Americans. The failed economic policies of President Obama are destroying the black community and lessening the chances for economic freedom while promoting economic dependence. Perhaps this is what the NAACP was afraid to hear me address.

Congressman West might have been spurred by polls...
