It's Offical our Treasury Secretary is a Tax Cheat

Timothy Geithner was confirmed by the U.S. Senate by 60-34 vote today. This despite the fact that the man couldn't manage to pay his taxes. Obama said there had been a "devastating loss in trust and confidence" in the U.S. economy. And installing tax cheat as the top finacinal man in the country is going to fix that how?

I'm going to take a look at Obama's whole cabinet pretty soon. Stay tuned that will be one interesting article.

Pelosi: Close GITMO but don't put those terrorist in my district.

When I heard that Rep Bill Young suggested that we should reopen the Rock and put the GITMO detainees there I thought it sounded like a great idea. I mean if were going to close GITMO lets and bring those detainees to America (an idea I think is idiotic) AT LEAST we should put them in the most secure facility possible. Alcatraz seems like it would be the place. Even if they escape they would still have to get through shark infested waters. So why not The Rock? Well It turns out The Rock is located in Speaker Pelosi's district. So? Doesn't Pelosi want them bought to America? She should be willing to put them in her district, right? Why that might make sense to the rest of was Pelosi says NO! When asked if the idea was a serious one Pelosi said, "It is -- no." She has the NIMBY syndrome. NIMBY stands for not in my backyard. Amazingly while she is in favor of bringing terrorist here and giving them rights. She is against terrorist being anywhere near San Francisco. (I guess she wants them in the South where all the uneducated, gun toting, bible clinging, conservatives live.) Pelosi what's the deal? I thought these guys were all wrongly imprisoned and were just turned in for ransom, at least that's what you've been telling the country for the last three years.

Despite the fact that Pelosi has no idea where we could put these terrorist, she still said, "What the president put forth was very wise. He said he's going to close Guantanamo, take the time to do it. You can't just go down there today and say, 'Everybody out,' and lock the door. They're going to review the cases, narrow it down and then go from there. ... It's brilliant," she said on ABC's "This Week."

Brilliant, Closing GITMO and having nowhere to send the detainees is brilliant. You can't really believe that. I know your trying to suck up to the new President, but you really believe this is brilliant. Maybe it's time for someone to give you a reality check and since we all know the press won't do it allow me Speaker Pelosi.

Closing GITMO and bringing the terrorist to America (while keeping them far away from your district) puts this country in danger. For example the terrorist will now have lawyers. What happens when some "lawyer" turns out to be relaying messages for Al Qaeda." It happens with the Mafia why wouldn't it be the same with terrorist. Two, what if we know their guilty, but can't prosecute them because we can't reveal how we got the information without revealing national security secrets? In that case the terrorist would walk right out the door of an American courtroom a free man. This could happened with several detainees. Not to mention what if one of those liberal Judges you love so much overturns a rightful conviction on appeal. The Supreme Court probably won't review every case some nutball liberal overturns by making up new constitutional rights.

Just incase you thought there couldn't possibly be anyone else who thought like Pelosi let me introduce you to our Vice President. Joe Biden said of GITMO, "There's no question it has to be closed. And we don't think it's inconsistent to deal with our national security and our Constitution. ... That's why we have the White House counsel -- Mr. Craig is now going through this meticulously, deciding what we're going to do with each and every prisoner,"

Biden also tries to ensure Americans by telling them even if some are released they won't stay here. "They have no legal status to stay here, I don't anticipate that happening. What I anticipate happening is that those people who are in a situation where it is either the evidence is in question or it's going to be hard to make a case, we will most likely be rendering them back to their countries of origin or another country,"

Alright lets take the Vice President at his word. So the terrorist will be handed over to countries like Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, Syria, along with many others that would allow them to go right back to killing Americans on the Battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan. We already know many GITMO detainees that have been released have been recaptured on the battlefield. One recently popped up as an Al-Qaeda commander in Yemen. He had been released to Saudi Arabia for rehabilitation.

If I were a solider I'd have a hard time not feeling like my country was betraying me. We're going to end up releasing terrorist that U.S. soldiers died capturing.
The people that say they want to close GITMO don't want the terrorist anywhere near their cities, and what's the Speaker of the U.S. House say about all this. "It's Brilliant."

Obama Better Organizine the White House Better Than He Did the Inauguration

"Optimistic chants of "change" and "O-bam-A" morphed into angered shouts of "Let us in!" outside the security gates to the inauguration. These folks had tickets, and they wanted in." Yet many didn't get in too see the event because of bad organization. "There was a "chaos of people, no line and no bullhorns with directions," said Haverkate. We were so disappointed that we missed the historical moment we'd be waiting for for months," he said. Another person who came all the way from California had this to say, "The entire experience was extremely disappointing, and I am utterly disgusted and appalled at the organization and preparation of this event," Well at least you didn't come from Michigan in your Wheelchair. After a bus ride from Detroit to D.C. Denise Robinson was twenty feet from the gate when it closed. Mayor John Bull from Coxsackie, New York who was also denied entry said this, "It's heartbreaking to think how far she came and how hard is was for her and her husband to fight through the crowds and push her wheelchair just to be shunned in the end."

First of all I feel bad for all those people who had tickets that were unable to get in to the inauguration. I know when I buy a ticket for an event I expect to be able to attend the event. However apparently that isn't the case if it's an event Obama is a part of. Obama if this is a preview of how you plan to run the country I'd say it's going to be a long four years.

Fidel is alive and has a "very good Perception"of Obama.

The title alone should scare the crap out of every American. When bad people be it Fidel, Hamas, Ahmadinejad, have positive things to say about you I don't consider that to be a good thing. If it was one bad person I'd say not to worry about it but it seems like every bad person has something nice to say about "The One."

In a meeting with Argentina President Fernandez Castro. Castro called Obama, "a man who seems absolutely sincere," who believes strongly in his ideas "and who hopefully can carry them out." He also said, "I personally did not have the slightest doubt about the honesty of Obama, the 11th president since Jan. 1, 1959, when he expresses his ideas." Well if a mass murder trust him and wants him to succeed that's good enough for me. I guess I was wrong about Obama.
Or maybe it's possible Castro wants Obama to succeed because he and Obama share the same vision of government.

Raul Castro also had nice things to say about Obama. "Earlier Wednesday, Raul Castro said Obama "seemed like a good man" and wished him luck." Obama has offered to negotiate with Raul Castro and to ease restrictions on Cuba. I guess we'll just be negotitating how much we will ease restrictions. I'm sure telling Castro you planned to ease them anyway won't give him the upper hand in those negotiations.

Is there an evil dicator anywhere in the world that Obama won't negotiate with. Maybe Obama can offer Florida in exchange for them not killing or imprisoning anyone that disagrees with them.,2933,481407,00.html

Obama is no Abe Lincoln Here's the Proof

So apparently somehow Obama got the idea he is the next Abraham Lincoln. Maybe it's all the media coverage saying how great he is even though he hasn't accomplished anything yet. Or it could be that he's just an overconfident self-absorbed egomaniac.
This quote from June 29th 2005 tells us everything we need to know. "This week comes the previously careful Sen. Barack Obama, flapping his wings in Time magazine and explaining that he's a lot like Abraham Lincoln, only sort of better. "In Lincoln's rise from poverty, his ultimate mastery of language and law, his capacity to overcome personal loss and remain determined in the face of repeated defeat--in all this he reminded me not just of my own struggles." "Mr. Obama said he keeps a photographic portrait of Lincoln on the wall of his office, and that "it asks me questions."

"I'm sure it does. I'm sure it says, "Barack, why are you such an egomaniac?" Or perhaps, "Is it no longer possible in American politics to speak of another's greatness without suggesting your own?"

Obama was sworn in on the Lincoln bible a feat no other President, probably because of modesty, had ever attempted. His Inauguration dinner is a tribute to Lincoln's favorite foods. If you want to see the menu you can go here. After that he took the same route that Lincoln had traveled in the inaugural parade. He also is took the same train route Lincoln took to D.C.

Lincoln owned his own business and was a Captain in a state militia. He learned leadership in these areas. Show me one place Obama learned leadership. Being a senator for 143 days before he started running for office doesn't even come close. Even if you take the liberal number of 304 days that's still less than a year of experience. Plus Obama now has exactly 12.5 hours of executive experience. Something Lincoln learned has a business owner and a Captain.

President Lincoln did what he had to do to keep this country united. Including suspending Habeus Corpus rights. Obama can't handle the fact that we use enhanced interrogation techniques on people that want to kill us all. They even want to kill the liberals. Of course from talking to liberals I know they'd rather we sacrifice ourselves for our ideals. What good are ideals if their is no one alive to defend them? I'm all for standing up for what I believe in. I do it all the time. That's what being a conservative is, but when I believe in something that's contrary to what liberals believe in they say I'm a coward because I won't die for their ideals.

Lincoln made hard decisions in possibly the most difficult time in American history. I think the fact we still exist as a union 143 years after the civil war proves he made the right decisions.

Hearing Obama compared to Lincoln is absurd. How absurd? Let's Compare these two men.

President Obama:
The First African American President

44th President of the U.S.

3 terms in Illinois State Legislature

4 years as U.S. Senator

Called for withdrawal from Iraq in 2006

Backed off his promise to take
public financing in General Election

President Lincoln:
The First Republican President

16th President of the U.S.

4 terms in the Illinois State Legislature

1 term has U.S. Congressman.

Spoke out against slavery said it was
"founded on both injustice and bad policy."

Made Thanksgiving a national holiday

Captain of Illinois Militia company

Known has honest Abe

Ran a small business

Worked to pass the 13th Amendment of the
Constitution ending slavery

suspended Habeus Corpus during Civil War

Won the Civil War

Obama may have a similar biography as Lincoln, but that is where the similarities end. He has neither the courage nor the conviction to be anywhere near the man Lincoln was much less the President. I wish Obama well as President I hope he does a good job however the first thing he needs to do is realize there is only one Abraham Lincoln.

Happy MLK Day.

Even though it's no longer MLK day I thought I'd wish everyone a happy one anyway. MLK was a man that stood up for his principles and was willing to die for them. I feel sure he knew that standing up for what he believed in would not be popular and may get him killed (which it did.) He did it anyway because he understood that his actions could affect generations of people that would come after him. Partly because of his courage we elected our first black President this year. However Obama is no Martin Luther King Jr. He's also not Abraham Lincoln even though his belief that he is will be the subject of a later post. Perhaps Tomorrow. Actually make that later today.

Back to a post a day on Monday

To anyone who is still reading my blog. I will go back to putting up at least one post a day on Monday. Sorry I haven't been doing a very good job of staying updated lately. I'll probably also start cross-posting with Conservatism Today and Patriot Room. To try and drive up my traffic again. Anyone got a clue when RealClearPolitics is going to start accepting Reader Articles again?

History Will Prove Bush Was Right.

I came across this article while surfing the web today. Finally someone has the courage to tell the truth about this administrations actions. Too bad this article was published in England.

By Andrew Roberts

The American lady who called to see if I would appear on her radio programme was specific. "We're setting up a debate," she said sweetly, "and we want to know from your perspective as a historian whether George W Bush was the worst president of the 20th century, or might he be the worst president in American history?" "I think he's a good president," I told her, which seemed to dumbfound her, and wreck my chances of appearing on her show.

In the avalanche of abuse and ridicule that we are witnessing in the media assessments of President Bush's legacy, there are factors that need to be borne in mind if we are to come to a judgment that is not warped by the kind of partisan hysteria that has characterised this issue on both sides of the Atlantic.

The first is that history, by looking at the key facts rather than being distracted by the loud ambient noise of the
24-hour news cycle, will probably hand down a far more positive judgment on Mr Bush's presidency than the immediate, knee-jerk loathing of the American and European elites.

At the time of 9/11, which will forever rightly be regarded as the defining moment of the presidency, history will look in vain for anyone predicting that the Americans murdered that day would be the very last ones to die at the hands of Islamic fundamentalist terrorists in the US from that day to this.

The decisions taken by Mr Bush in the immediate aftermath of that ghastly moment will be pored over by historians for the rest of our lifetimes. One thing they will doubtless conclude is that the measures he took to lock down America's borders, scrutinise travellers to and from the United States, eavesdrop upon terrorist suspects, work closely with international intelligence agencies and take the war to the enemy has foiled dozens, perhaps scores of would-be murderous attacks on America. There are Americans alive today who would not be if it had not been for the passing of the Patriot Act. There are 3,000 people who would have died in the August 2005 airline conspiracy if it had not been for the superb inter-agency co-operation demanded by Bush
after 9/11.

The next factor that will be seen in its proper historical context in years to come will be the true reasons for invading Afghanistan in October 2001 and Iraq in April 2003. The conspiracy theories believed by many (generally, but not always) stupid people – that it was "all about oil", or the securing of contracts for the US-based Halliburton corporation, etc – will slip into the obscurity from which they should never have emerged had it not been for comedian-filmmakers such as Michael Moore.

Instead, the obvious fact that there was a good case for invading Iraq based on 14 spurned UN resolutions, massive human rights abuses and unfinished business following the interrupted invasion of 1991 will be recalled.

Similarly, the cold light of history will absolve Bush of the worst conspiracy-theory accusation: that he knew there were no WMDs in Iraq. History will show that, in common with the rest of his administration, the British Government, Saddam's own generals, the French, Chinese, Israeli and Russian intelligence agencies, and of course SIS and the CIA, everyone assumed that a murderous dictator does not voluntarily destroy the WMD arsenal he has used against his own people. And if he does, he does not then expel the UN weapons inspectorate looking for proof of it, as he did in 1998 and again in 2001.

Mr Bush assumed that the Coalition forces would find mass graves, torture chambers, evidence for the gross abuse of the UN's food-for-oil programme, but also WMDs. He was right about each but the last, and history will place him in the mainstream of Western, Eastern and Arab thinking on the matter.

History will probably, assuming it is researched and written objectively, congratulate Mr Bush on the fact that whereas in 2000 Libya was an active and vicious member of what he was accurately to describe as an "axis of evil" of rogue states willing to employ terrorism to gain its ends, four years later Colonel Gaddafi's WMD programme was sitting behind glass in a museum in Oakridge, Tennessee.

With his characteristic openness and at times almost self-defeating honesty, Mr Bush has been the first to acknowledge his mistakes – for example, tardiness over Hurricane Katrina – but there are some he made not because he was a ranting Right-winger, but because he was too keen to win bipartisan support. The invasion of Iraq should probably have taken place months earlier, but was held up by the attempt to find support from UN security council members, such as Jacques Chirac's France, that had ties to Iraq and hostility towards the Anglo-Americans.

History will also take Mr Bush's verbal fumbling into account, reminding us that Ronald Reagan also mis-spoke regularly, but was still a fine president. The first
MBA president, who had a higher grade-point average at Yale than John Kerry, Mr Bush's supposed lack of intellect will be seen to be a myth once the papers in his Presidential Library in the Southern Methodist University in Dallas are available.

Films such as Oliver North's W, which portray him as a spitting, oafish frat boy who eats with his mouth open and is rude to servants, will be revealed by the diaries and correspondence of those around him to be absurd travesties, of this charming, interesting, beautifully mannered history buff who, were he not the most powerful man in the world, would be a fine person to have as a pal.

Instead of Al Franken, history will listen to Bob Geldof praising Mr Bush's efforts over Aids and malaria in Africa; or to Manmohan Singh, the prime minister of India, who told him last week: "The people of India deeply love you." And certainly to the women of Afghanistan thanking him for saving them from Taliban abuse, degradation and tyranny.

When Abu Ghraib is mentioned, history will remind us that it was the Bush Administration that imprisoned those responsible for the horrors. When water-boarding is brought up, we will see that it was only used on three suspects, one of whom was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al-Qaeda's chief of operational planning, who divulged vast amounts of information that saved hundreds of innocent lives. When extraordinary renditions are queried, historians will ask how else the world's most dangerous terrorists should have been transported. On scheduled flights?

The credit crunch, brought on by the Democrats in Congress insisting upon home ownership for credit-unworthy people, will initially be blamed on Bush, but the perspective of time will show that the problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac started with the deregulation of the Clinton era. Instead Bush's very
un-ideological but vast rescue package of $700 billion (£480 billion) might well be seen as lessening the impact of the squeeze, and putting America in position to be the first country out of recession, helped along by his huge tax-cut packages since 2000.

Sneered at for being "simplistic" in his reaction to 9/11, Bush's visceral responses to the attacks of a fascistic, totalitarian death cult will be seen as having been substantially the right ones.

Mistakes are made in every war, but when virtually the entire military, diplomatic and political establishment in the West opposed it, Bush insisted on the surge in Iraq that has been seen to have brought the war around, and set Iraq on the right path. Today its GDP is 30 per cent higher than under Saddam, and it is free of a brutal dictator and his rapist sons.

The number of American troops killed during the eight years of the War against Terror has been fewer than those slain capturing two islands in the Second World War, and in Britain we have lost fewer soldiers than on a normal weekend on the Western Front. As for civilians, there have been fewer Iraqis killed since the invasion than in 20 conflicts since the Second World War.

Iraq has been a victory for the US-led coalition, a fact that the Bush-haters will have to deal with when perspective finally – perhaps years from now – lends objectivity to this fine man's record.

Obama Trying to Make Everyone Happy.

Trying to make everyone love you is the best way to be sure that no one does. This is a lesson I learned a long time ago and yet one our President elect still needs to learn. I just saw this article on saying that Obama has asked the first openly gay bishop to say a prayer during one of the inaugration events. He's also asked Rick Warren who supported the gay marriage ban in California to give the invocation. What's more likely the people that support Warren will be happy and the people Robinson will be happy, or that no one will be happy. I'd say the latter is more likely. On the one hand you have an openly gay bishop, something many Christians believe is a contradiction in terms, leading a prayer. On the other hand you have an anti-gay pastor (their words not mine) giving the invocation.

Let's see can I find other examples of Obama trying to make everyone happy in the past? Yes I can. In fact we can start with his kindergarten teacher who said "Obama is always trying to make everybody happy." So basically this is a lifelong problem he's had.

Obama also tried to make everyone happy during the campaign by saying he was for gun bans then praising the Supreme Court ruling that struck down the D.C. gun ban. Here's the video.

Another example Obama voted for the 2005 Energy bill, but spent the campaign railing against it. The bill passed the senate with a 74-26 vote. However when it came time to campaign Obama railed against the now unpopular Bush-Cheney Energy Bill. So when it was popular Obama was for it, but when it was unpopular Obama rails against the bill.

Remember when Obama promised to filibuster the Telecom commuications bill during the primaries. "To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies." However when the bill came to a vote after he had won the nomination he did nothing. He actually voted for the bill.

So let me get this straight Obama your plan is to make everyone in the country hate you? I know that's not the plan, but that will be the end result if Barack Obama keeps trying to make everyone happy. Of course he will keep trying this tact because this is what liberals do. They try to make everyone happy. Elect me and I'll give you everything for free. However what most of us know is everything comes with a price. Sometimes you pay for it then and other times you pay for it later. The question isn't if Obama's presidency will cost this country something it's when will we have to pay and how much?

The National Champions in The New Conservatives poll

Without a doubt the Utah Utes deserve to be National Champions. They completely manhandled an Alabama team that led Florida late in the second half of the SEC title game. They defeated TCU which defeated previously Undefeated Boise State and whose only other loss was to Oklahoma. TCU finished 7th. Another conference foe BYU finished the year 25th. Utah also beat a Oregon State team that defeated USC. Oregon State finished 18th. Not to mention they finished the year as the only undefeated team in major college football. Utah had everything you could ever want in a National Champion that's why I'm naming them the 2008-09 New Conservative blog National Champions.

Obama's Choice to Head CIA Realizes my Greatest Fear

Early on in this process posiably even back during my primaries a liberal friend of mine asked me what my greatest fear about Obama was. My reply "I'm worried he's going to get us all killed." Now with the possible appointment of Leon Panetta to be CIA chief it appears Obama will in fact get us all killed. Hey Obama how about appointing someone who knows something about the intellience process instead of a political hack.

Panetta would be fine for a position in the Obama administration just not one that my life my depend on. The man has no experience in the intelligence field. Obama try not to get us all killed.

Isreal Invades Gaza.

Isreal has sent Ground troops into Gaza and doesn't plan on leaving under Hamas is unable to fire rockets into their country. This is a Statement from Ehud Barak, Minister of Defense.

"A few hours ago, Israeli ground forces entered the Gaza Strip as part of operation Cast Lead against the Hamas terrorists and their affiliates and infrastructure in Gaza."
"So far, the Israeli Defense Forces have dealt an unprecedented heavy blow to Hamas. In order to complete their mission we now launched the ground operation."
"I have said all along that our military activities will widen and deepen as much as needed. Our aim is to force Hamas to stop its hostile activities against Israel and Israelis from Gaza, and to bring about a significant change in the situation in Southern part of Israel."
"We have carefully weighed all our options. We are not war hungry but we shall not, I repeat - we shall not allow a situation where our towns, villages and civilians are constantly targeted by Hamas. It will not be easy or short, but we are determined."
"We are well aware of the humanitarian aspect and are doing and will continue to do everything possible to provide all humanitarian needs to Gaza."
"While we are fighting in Gaza, we keep an open eye on the sensitive situation in our northern border. We have no aggressive intentions there. We hope the situation there will remain calm; nevertheless we are ready and alert to face any unwarranted development in that area."
"We are peace seekers. We have restrained ourselves for a long time but now is the time to do what needs to be done. We are determined to afford our citizens what any citizen anywhere in the world is entitled to - peace, tranquility and freedom from threats.",2933,475628,00.html

Some notes from the fighting:

Isreal killed senior Hamas commander Abu Zakaria al-Jamal. "On Thursday an Israeli warplane dropped a 2,000-pound bomb on the home of one of Hamas' top five decision-makers, instantly killing him and 18 others. The airstrike on Nizar Rayan was the first that succeeded in killing a member of Hamas' highest echelon since Israel began its offensive."

Israeli warplanes and gunboats blasted more than two dozen Hamas targets Saturday, including weapons storage facilities, training centers and leaders' homes as Israel's offensive against Gaza's Islamic militant rulers entered a second week.

"Israeli missiles hit 25 Hamas "outposts, training camps and rocket launching sites" Saturday morning, an IDF statement said."

"The United Nations estimated Friday that around 100 civilians have been killed in Gaza in the past week, around 25 percent of the 400 estimated killed in the bombing campaign."

Most if not all of the civilans killed are killed because Hamas fires rockets from civilan locations. They also have many of their ministries inside of civilan populations. Hamas intentionaly uses civilans has shields. "In many ways, they are victims like us. Both the civilian population of southern Israel and the civilian population of the Gaza Strip have been victims of this terrible, extremist Hamas regime," Regev said.,2933,475525,00.html

I have no idea how long Isreal will be in Gaza, but I have no doubt they are pissed and they have no plans of waiting for the U.N. the negoiciate another meaningless one sided ceasefire. Has of right now it looks like the U.S. will continue to back Israel during the invasion.

"We are working toward a cease-fire that would not allow a re-establishment of the status quo ante, where Hamas can continue to launch rockets out of Gaza and to condemn the people of Gaza to a life of misery," U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in a written statement issued Saturday evening.

McCormack added that a cease-fire should come "as soon as possible," but it should be "durable, sustainable and not time-limited." In other words no more six month ceasefire that serve no other purpose except to allow Hamas to regroup and rearm after a Isreali invasion. Any ceasefire agreement needs to be strictly enforced by both parties. Meaning if that Israel should not hesitate to attack if Rockets start flying into their cities after the ceasefire is reached. Also if Israel is the agressor Hamas would be within their rights to fire back. However my opinion is just let them go. These two will never peacefully co-exist. One of them must be completely inalinated.

The son of Hamas leader now living in exile in the United States agrees with me. Talking about a lasting peace between Israel and Hamas. "There is no chance. Is there any chance for fire to co-exist with the water?" said Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of one of the group's founding members.
Yousef added: "It's not about Israel, it's not about Hamas: it's about both ideologies.",2933,475226,00.html

Hamas has promised to battle to the last breath "We will not abandon the battlefield, and we will stay on the thorny course, and we will fight until the last breath," Hamas chief spokesman Ismail Radwan said in a statement on Palestinian network Al-Aqsa.

I'm sure Israel wouldn't have it any other way.

Aren't you glad 2008 is over? I am.

2008 was a bad year for Conservatives. Even the Republican Party was a big disappointment. From bailouts to out of control spending Republicans did not do what they were voted in to do so they got the boot. It didn't help that McCain couldn't stop bashing his own party long enough to let them vote for him. He was way to worried about people getting offended. He should've been worried about firing up his base. He only won South Carolina by nine points and he lost North Carolina for crying out loud. Bush won South Carolina by twice what McCain did in 2004 and he carried North Carolina by 13 points. North Carolina hadn't gone Democrat since 1976. How did that go? I guess some people can't learn from history. Don't worry for those who either don't remember or we're to lazy to do the research. You will be living through a repeat of the Carter years very soon. That may be fine with you, but did you have to force me to live through them.
