Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted "present" nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself.

It is going to be an interesting 4 years if he becomes the President. It could become Carter-esque.

As much as I dis-like facts getting in the way of some good right-wing talking points, you may want to look things up prior to repeating what Limbaugh or Hanity has told you. Then you would easily find that Obama Sponsored 126 bills and was a co-sponsor on 493 others for a total of 619.

But hey, who's counting. wink

I think its rather strange how some like to bring up the past Thirty years ago. Then they go back and wish for the past again the Reagan erreur. Boy those who look back cant even come up with an original idea. Now I believe in learning from the past. Lets learn from it and move back to the present and figure out what we are gonna do in the present and future. Reciting some thought by a tv commentator gets us nowhere. Notice no bashing of parties.

Hey Kidd...Name one thing that Barack Hussein Obama has done to help this country, name a specific bill or accomplishment. And what does Rush or Hannitty have to do with Obama's non-accoplishments?

Yep, the reason he votes "present" is because he has no conviction. Whatever the polls say he's right in line with said poll. I guess they call it political expediency.

Okay, so you don't like career politicians and now by virtue of this thread, you don't like non-politicians either. Who or what do you want?

One accomplishment, and this is a big one, is that he won the Democratic party endorsement in 2008.

Kid, I have looked into this earlier and yes your are right Obama has sponsored or cosponsored many bills. But, Uncle bill has a good point in could any of them really been considered "important" legislation? If I remember correctly they were not very groundbreaking bills. I could be wrong though. Do you have that HSOforum you posted before so I can take a look again?

Sorry that was not verry clear. Oh I was refering to the statement of comparing Oboma to Carter.

That comparison would not have been used if a comentator never used it. It has been used on that fox channel many times.

Sorry to admitt at glancing at that partison news channel.Its like driving by an accident just cant look away grin

And I guess the rest was jibberish being the party is no longer foccussing on Reagan policy. How come there not using that platform any moore. It think its funny how they talked of Regean durring the debates and how great he is and now The cannidate chosen to represent them goes the opposite direction and supports the Bush policies

Hey Kidd...Name one thing that Barack Hussein Obama has done to help this country, name a specific bill or accomplishment.

Hooked

Again, pretty easy to find this stuff.

Source: barackobama com

As a State senator:

Worked for $13,000 / year helping inner city Chicago poor.

Registered 150,000 people to vote.

Graduated first black president of Harvard Law Review.

While in the State senate he provided health insurance to 20,000 children

Was instrumental in implementing Illinois welfare reform

Increased minimum wage ($5.15 to $6.50).

Drove the death penalty reform making interrogations be video taped, which by the way, passed Senate 58-0.

Sponsored bill probing police profiling.

sponsored 780 bills, 280were signed into law.

While in the Federal senate :

Worked with republican senator Lugar to expand and author program to locate & dismantle stray Russian WMD’s left over from the cold war after the disbanding of the USSR.

Major ethics/lobbying reform bill, w/ Russ Feingold, insisted tougher measures banning lobbyist gifts/ meals/ jets, disclosure of earmark & contribution bundling to candidates or committees; restricts retiring Congress from going into lobbying.

Cosponsored Secure Orderly Immigration Act by John McCain. Passed 62-36. Makes undocumented persons who have been here 5+ years only allowed to stay and apply for citizenship, if pay back taxes, learn English and no criminal record. 2 million undocumented persons who have been in the United States for less than two years would be ordered home.

Speaker Harry Reid designated Barack Obama as the Senate point man on ethics. Obama is known for his unquestionable ethics and integrity.

Actually Muskyslayer posted this a couple of weeks back and I had saved the information on a word doc. If you search for Muskyslayer you'll find the link.

Sorry, but that's all I got. blush

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our President.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old rancher said : When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle.

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself. he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb a__ put him up there to begin with."

Where is Hillary cry

Ah, well the Democratic Party knows what is best for their party.

I thought everyone loved Obama this spring over Hillary in this forum grin.

We will see. Short of a “shocker” Obama skeleton, he is most likely going to be our next president. I will not welcome him with major open arms, but it is settling in my mind.

God save the queen grin I heard their are some monster Wells cat fish over seas.

I usually stay out of political conversations, and I am by no means at this time sure of who my vote will go for. All I know is that whoever is elected in November can't possibly do any worse than the guys that have been attempting to run things for the last 8 years.

Kidd - It's pointless. Read about 95% of the political stuff posted on this HSOforum. A lot of folks drank too much of the FOX news kool-aid and are too far gone to be saved.

See, this is what I don't get, I post as an Obama accomplishment as:

Quote:
Cosponsored Secure Orderly Immigration Act by John McCain. Passed 62-36. Makes undocumented persons who have been here 5+ years only allowed to stay and apply for citizenship, if pay back taxes, learn English and no criminal record. 2 million undocumented persons who have been in the United States for less than two years would be ordered home.

yet we keep posting things like:

and three times the handouts for the bums and illegals.

It makes no sense to me. crazy

    • 4"-6" sucker minnows are turning walleyes on a lot of lakes right now.  Seems to be an underutilized method lately.  
    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
