"...apart from the occasional random nut, the people most likely to assassinate a president are leftists, socialists, communists, Palestinian activists, crazed environmentalists and communitarians..." In other words, SYSTEMATIC nuts...

As opposed to the press joining Obama in his lies...
I doubt there is cause for concern on that score, Mr. Davis. Chelsea's parents being who they are, I'm reasonably certain they all have a shared faith already. That faith is in progressive government.
That would limit her to the Spongebob forum.
The President is actually aligning himself with just under 2/3 of 17 percent of the electorate, in point of fact. I don't believe he cares if the the Senate changes hands. That way when he ramps up the decibels on the "obstructionist Republicans in Congress" it will at least be technically accurate (though why the Republicans haven't kept the Senate floor knee deep in discharge petitions to highlight just who it is that's obstructing is beyond me). Then when he comes back after almost a decade "away from politics" (albeit absent in the same manner as Clinton and Carter, not the normal former presidents), he can push for the UN to become a true World Government (which he will humbly agree to helm as the first Global President, or whatever title they choose) on the grounds that the nation-state model is obsolete. After all, "If I couldn't make it work anymore..."
Well, yes- tyrants always define peace as, "Nobody dares to oppose us."
The problem with Affirmative Action for ANY reason is that, in order to prove you are "addressing past inequities", a highly qualified person will need to be passed over in favor of someone with lower qualifications.
This is not a new problem, nor unique to Obama. We have failed to correctly define the conflict from day 1. We are no more fighting a War on Terror than our fathers and grandfathers fought a War on Blitzkrieg, or a War on Kamikaze. Our opponent is Islamofascism, Whether this will remain the dominant interpretation of the Muslim faith must be determined by those who keep loudly proclaiming, "But we are a religion of peace!" Until and unless they are willing to (somewhat ironically) fight for that interpretation, they will continue to be subjugated by those who use it as justification for their Middle Eastern brand of feudalism (the prognosis is not hopeful). I fear that eventually it will come down to the Caliphate vs those who wish to live free (assuming we reverse OUR present course and regain the original conception of a nation dedicated to Liberty). The two philosophies are mutually exclusive, and cannot exist for long in the same location.
I dare say, conservatives and Republicans are much greater enemies than anyone outside our borders, as far as the Democrats are concerned...
