Obama Aide: ´With these Republicans
there´d still be slavery today´

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 12/3/2012 9:34:37 AM

MSNBC host Chuck Todd reported that a "very smart White House aide" told him that "with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there´d still be slavery.""You´re going to like this," MSNBC host Chuck Todd said this morning on TV. "So, I threw the Lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said, ´You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there´d still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn´t have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this--´ It was an interesting and depressing observation

Comments:
To Chuck Todd and MSNBC, this is interesting. That WH aide is smart, look at how they get their disgusting talking points mainstreamed.BTW, this was on Morning Joe. The ´legitimate´ news show on MSNBC. Can GOP members please stop going on this show?

#1, we all know that. It has been explained ad nauseam. If they keep repeating the lie it becomes part of the folklore. Remember Clinton and Gingrich´s ´Medicare Cuts´? We need some one like Lee Atwater to fight fire with fire.

this man, Obama, and his ilk have done more
to create discord among men. The South, who were the Democrats, wanted slavery. The North, Republicans, etc., wanted freedom for all men, and paid a huge price for this
stand. Now, the Democrats claim Republicans are for slavery!

Yes, I too wish we had 50 Newts to tongue lash these people with such comments and set the record straight. Read history!!!!

You want slavery? Just waiting until Sharia gets a foothold. After all the Koran allows it, particularly as pillage.

Okay, here´s a question. Who would own slaves and what would they be doing? Recall that when you own a slave it´s a lot more expensive and time consuming than owning, say, a tractor. Or hiring some migrant workers to do your picking. So, for what reason would anyone own a slave?

I´d like to know Chuck Todd´s answer to that. Of course he didn´t say it. It was a really smart anonymous staffer who said it. Yeah, right.

How someone so historically illiterate can make an observation as this can be accounted only to his lack of intellect.
The founding aim of the Republican party was freeing the african race from bandage.

I´m increasingly insulted .......... and even sometimes wonder these days whether the price we paid to stop slavery was worth it ......... since it isn´t appreciated by those we freed.

NOTE
My Grandfathers eldest brother died in a Confederate Prison camp ........... another relative died along with his wife,[who was nursing him] at a hospital of disease.

Additionally 2 cousins were officers in a USCT unit ........... I´m not counting the total number of relatives who fought in the War ............ and those wounded.

It was the Ds who fought FOR Slavery, stupid!

A higher percentage of Republicans voted for EVERY Civil Rights bill than Democrats! Especially before 1964. There were actually black senators and congressmen before democraps took control of the WH again - then they were gone because of Jim Crow laws and the KKK that were both creations of democraps.

Why the Republicans don´t trumpet this more often confounds me.

A local CBS affiliate in Raleigh opened its phone lines for seven hours Tuesday to promote Obamacare. With the deadline for enrollment fast approaching, Raleigh’s WRAL brought in 27 Obamacare “experts” — including navigators, certified application counselors, and marketplace-savvy insurance agents – to answer callers’ questions from noon until seven in the evening. WRAL’s news broadcast also cut into its normal coverage to advertise the experts and the number to reach them. “For 1.3 million North Carolinians who are currently uninsured now is the time to think about getting coverage,” Renee Chou, a WRAL reporter explained, while standing in front

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919. Boasting a unique role Republican women have played, they stated: Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings--from Margaret Chase Smith,

Microsoft’s new CEO is still formulating his strategy for the software giant, but he’s already endorsing an executive known for bringing hardball D.C. political tactics to the tech world. As part of a series of executive changes Monday, Satya Nadella announced that Mark Penn, the controversial Hillary Clinton pollster who joined the company two years ago, will take the role of chief strategy officer. Penn, known as a champion of negative ads, was a divisive figure during Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and, as a Microsoft executive, he was the mastermind behind the company’s “Scroogled” ad campaign against Google.Nadella, who took the

CNN’s Chief International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, informed network anchor Wolf Blitzer on Thursday that there was no indication that Russian forces were planning to intervene militarily in Ukraine. Less than 24-hours later, Russian forces militarily intervened in Ukraine. “Some are concerned we might be on the eve of another Cold War,” Blitzer fretted. “What, if anything, would stop Vladimir Putin from getting involved?” “There doesn’t seem to be any notion that he is actually going to do so,” Amanpour insisted.“The U.S. right now says it only sees Russia’s military exercises ‘within the normal range,’” she continued. “It does not see

First lady Michelle Obama will unveil a proposal Tuesday that would ban marketing junk food and sodas in schools — an unusually aggressive position for the administration that could draw the ire of school districts, food companies and conservatives. Schools would no longer be able to house vending machines that sport images of their flagship sodas, have posters promoting unhealthy food and drinks or use cups in cafeterias that market high-calorie beverages, among other forms of promotion, according to administration officials.The proposal — part of an updated school wellness policy crafted by the Department of Agriculture — would require marketing of

RALEIGH, N.C. — Appearing on CBS News´ "Face the Nation" Sunday to talk about the winter storm that shut down the state last week, Gov. Pat McCrory sidestepped a pointed question about his position on climate change. The question from host Bob Schieffer came at the end of a segment on North Carolina´s response to the storm. "Governor, a couple of years ago, you made a remark that caught a lot of people´s attention. You said that global warming is ´in God´s hands,´" Schieffer said.

About 15 years ago, Lee Scott heard the news that a Phoenix police officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty. He phoned the main line of the Phoenix Police Department and was forwarded to the employee-assistance unit. Scott, founder of Shadow Mountain Mortuary, had a simple proposal. Let him take care of the entire funeral service, he said. At no cost. The officer was just one of at least a dozen fallen Phoenix police officers who would be laid to rest under Scott’s respectful watch at no cost to the families, police Cmdr. Tracy Montgomery said.

The Koch brothers have a seemingly bottomless pot of cash this election year — and no one knows it better than Sen. Kay Hagan. Americans for Prosperity, a group co-founded by the conservative billionaires, has already dropped $8.2 million on TV, radio and digital ads in an effort to defeat the North Carolina Democrat. According to sources tracking media buys, the group has so far spent more in North Carolina than all Democratic outside groups in every Senate race in the country — combined.

Richmond, Va. — A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld a 2012 court ruling that North Carolina´s decision to issue special anti-abortion license plates is unconstitutional because the state doesn´t offer similar plates supporting abortion rights. In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the proposed "Choose Life" plates represent "blatant viewpoint discrimination squarely at odds with the First Amendment. "The decision upholds a December 2012 ruling by U.S. District Judge James Fox in Raleigh, which came 13 months after he blocked the state from issuing the plates while a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union was pending.

There´s no doubt the vast majority of Republicans in Congress would repeal Obamacare if they could. Most GOP "alternative" bills begin with a clause to repeal the Affordable Care Act before proceeding to outline new policies to put in its place. Of course, GOP lawmakers don´t have any hope of actually repealing the law as long as Barack Obama, and his veto pen, are in the White House.Now some Republicans are looking at what might be done to undo as much as possible of the Democrats´ national health care scheme without actually repealing it. If Obamacare´s problems continue to mount

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect.

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his House committee chairmanship after he abruptly ended a hearing Wednesday morning over the objection of Democrats in the room. "Mr. Issa is a disgrace and should not be allowed to continue in a leadership role," wrote Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, in the letter to Boehner. The Wednesday hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting controversy quickly turned tense. When former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
