Going West

March 8, 2012 by  

Going West

Under normal circumstances, Presidential appointments to Federal posts earn — and deserve — no more scrutiny than an individual cockroach in the horde that just scurried back under your fridge. In fact, most Americans can name only the Federal appointees who draw extreme controversy in the form of the ire of the President’s opposition. Think: Democrat with “nanny issues” or Republican who is black.

President Barack Obama’s decision to elevate Tony West to the position of acting associate attorney general, which will rank him third on the ladder at the Department of Justice, falls into the “abnormal” category. West, who currently serves as the assistant attorney general for the Civil Division, embodies the spectacularly poor judgment that seems to coincide with nearly every declaration that has escaped Obama’s fevered brain.

Prior to his entrenchment in the dark corners of the Obama Administration, West enjoyed a career as a noteworthy attorney — albeit noteworthy for his choice of clientele rather than any legal hurdles he may have leapt along the way. West is the ambulance-chaser who rode shotgun in the courtroom for John Walker Lindh, among other clients of ill repute. If you’re scratching your head in an effort to locate Lindh’s name, check in Afghanistan. Lindh is the infamous “American Taliban” who joined the jihadis and took up arms for Islamofascism, only to be caught and stuffed in a cage for 20 years. West is the guy who tried to spring him.

And now, West is in line to play catcher for Attorney General Eric Holder. With Obama at the top, Holder right behind him and West backing Holder, Obama has created a Federal law enforcement agency run by the man behind Operation Fast and Furious and the man behind any Tariq, Dhakir or Hakim who gets nicked aiming an AK-47 at the 1st Ranger Battalion. To quote the sage: “What could possibly go wrong?”

In an interview Sunday with Fox News, J. Christian Adams — the former Justice Department lawyer who blew the whistle on Holder’s refusal to prosecute Obama’s allies in the New Black Panther Party hate group — said: “The most dangerous thing is that West is overseeing Gitmo policy. It’s not that he’s just some guy at the Justice Department licking envelopes.” Appointing a radical like West to the No. 3 spot would actually give him direct authority over operations like the terrorist detainee facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. While I’m sure that would make it convenient for West to reminisce with some of his old pals, we’re not talking about giving the wolf the keys to the chicken coop; we’re talking about giving the wolf the keys to your front door.

In the wake of West’s advancement, some have questioned the nature of discourse in a Justice Department run by people like Obama, Holder and West.  My response: Exactly what debate do we think actually rages through the halls of the DoJ? A President with the same respect for the Constitution as Bill Maher has for women, an Attorney General with the same respect for the rule of law as — well — Maher has for women and soon to be an associate attorney general with the same level of respect for the security of our Nation. Something tells me the only debate raging through the halls of the Department of Justice involves which falafel joint has the best takeout.

In the interest of full disclosure, West made it to the job from which he’s moving up with an 82-4 vote in the Senate. That means a fair number of Republican Senators either fell asleep at the switch or willingly flipped it in the wrong direction. Either situation requires a gross dereliction of duty. The politicians who purport to represent conservatives fumbled the ball on an entirely unacceptable and potentially dangerous liberal DoJ appointee. You’ll forgive me if I don’t pass out from the shock.

But the Republicans in the Senate who nodded off and let West slip past them are accomplices after the fact. The big question is: What kind of President — what kind of man — allows this man inside the DoJ unless he’s wearing leg irons? After three years of Obama and his cronies’ wild ride, we already know the answer.

    Sounds like a plan is coming together, people. You’d think that qualifications should matter when someone who’s already ‘back there’ would be thoroughly grilled by the Senate.
    It seems the Senate has invented a new way to ‘take the day off’ when “considering” certain nominees. Can we expect the next wave of newbies to include convicted felons straight out of America’s prisons? Why mess around with a stinking law degree and experience?
    To take a wild guess, I’d say the W H bunch is kicking its new definitions game into high gear. In this case, all that was needed was to get the Senate to re-create what happened when we were “blessed” with the Fed in 1913.
    That is, a bunch of elected types had a remarkable series of brain farts, and voila – we had a new bunch of yahoos in town and they were given the keys to America’s wealth kingdom. And THAT bunch was a private corporation and not a gubmint agency.
    Now, it’s spreading into law enforcement. Maybe it’s time to conclude that the only people who need to be watched are the citizens of America, as the old rules have been eliminated and our boys and girls in Washington are above every law on the books. Does it need to be said that THAT can work both ways, too?
    Some people may not have learned that playing with fire has its own special flaws. The Constitution still exists. It is NOT a piece of paper that can be arranged or re-arranged or ignored at will. THAT has a unique set of no-nos attached. Any ‘Democrats’ or prospective utopians smell something burning yet? Time to speak up, o compassionate and “worthy” lefties.

    • FreedomFighter

      Setup, its a setup to either remove/compromise or nuetralize West.

        “…remove/compromise or nuetralize West.”
        Why are you pretending that this is not exactly what west needs? This IS what west needs, to be removed or nuetralized or both. Why would you defend this defender of terrorism? He should not be in that position, and I’m betting he will prove that very soon. Is he the reason gitmo got a nice new soccer field? That is disgusting.

      Yes, s c, there will be the “o compassionate and worthy lefties” that will speak up but they will be speaking up for the continued reign of Obummer. They will never “smell something burning” until it is to late. Mark my word, they have been and always will be the blind sheeple of our country. And Lord do we have a herd that is way, way, way to big!!

        I hope West prepares a few cells at Gitmo for his associates in the current administration. And I hope the new administration has the ball$ to prosecute these thieves for all the mischief they are causing.

      If you can control intense nausea, read OWE-BUM-MAO’S books, and you might have a little more insight into WHY this anti-American, Constitution-trampling, HATER of all things U.S. has been doing everything that he’s been doing since he STOLE his initial election for the Senate!
      I still can’t understand why NONE of our elected representatives have begun IMPEACHMENT proceedings! I guess NO ONE currently residing in the SWAMP of Washington has a SPINE?
      November cannot get here soon enough!

    • dan luster

      Worse yet, what do you think will happen when the debt bubble pops? Anarchy? Marshal law? Suspension of the Bill of Rights? Suspension of the 2016 election? Obama and his minions are beginning to scare me more than the Gitmo inmates…and that’s saying something!

  • http://yahoo bob peters

    just another move for Obama to solidify his transformation to communism…See the picture yet ?? Nobody is paying any attention to all this crap and soon you all will get shocked into reality! The takeover of our law enforcement,the firing of our PATRIOTIC general,The downsizing of our military,the bashing Israel,The sucking up to the muslim brotherhood,the takeover of the media,etc etc etc…Get with it people!!! You have been DUPED!! There is no Democrat or Republican party anymore!! They are all progressive socialists in bed with the New world Order! Goodbye America and Hello U.N.!! You no longer are a free American!! Thanks to all you Obama supporters! By the way,McCain was a set-up…Bush is also one of them along with the clintons….Thank you Kool aid drinker for your contribution!! F>U>

    • Sirian

      That’s the problem bob – they refuse to see the picture! They won’t take their rose colored glasses off – have they ever?

    • Dorian Douglas

      One thought- the Obma adm is not communist. I have believed that since the start of his presidency (even including what I think was a deliberate set-up by the Obama campaign with Joe the Plummer), Geo Soros wanted to portray BHO as communist, so they could logically deny it. The Obama admin is promoting fascism, not communism.

      The difference is that Communists own the businesses. Fascists DON’T own, they just control businesses, thru fiat, intimidation, bribery, collusion with the media, etc.

      Our government doesn’t own, they just control education (what programs must be included, what courses, who gets college funding, who can & can’t be teachers, etc; see Fed Aid to Education), banking, insurance, a large chunk of auto, etc. And see Maxine Waters’ video clip currently on the net, about taking over completely the oil & gas industry.

      Dorian Douglas

      • Ted Crawford

        I don’t know about that Dorian, from reading his books, it seems he really prefers Marxists above all!

      • eric

        I would still say the democrats are the communists and the republicans would be the fascists or nazis . both are lying socialists and want total control of evreything .

      • s c

        D, Obummer is the first prez who combines socialism, communism, fascism and several types of utopianism. According to his retards, because he doesn’t say he’s a socialist or a communist or a fascist or a utopian means he “can’t” be any of those. Duh. Wrong is wrong is wrong. THAT’S what matters, d.
        Anybody who can read or do a computer search is light years ahead of Obummer’s jockstrappers. If you need a source, read von Mises’ Socialism or Flynn’s The Roosevelt Myth or Powell’s FDR’s Folly. Or read the Constitution and compare what it says with what Obummer has done to America.
        Obummer’s jockstrapper retards are stuck on Weekly Reader and Dick and Jane. Watch, read and compare notes. Anybody who has a functioning brain can see what Obummer is doing to America.
        The rest are letting their brains rot. Whether I like it or not, about half of America needs batteries of mental competency tests and long-term therapy in mental asylums.
        The SOBs are willing to sacrifice their freedom, OUR freedom and their kids so they can feel like ‘God’ is alive and well in the White House. THAT is BEYOND “SICK.”

      • Lothele Davis

        George Soros wanted to portray Obama as Communist? No one would know better than Soros as he is one of ‘Bama’s main men! Don’t see the picture, Dorian? Read more about G and B. You be further informed.

      • Sirian

        Dorian,
        Obummer has for several years had major influences – Marxist, Communist, Socialist, Fascist etc. on his ideological and political stance. The people that he both has and continues associating with on a very regular basis should be enough evidence to clarify where his mind and convictions continue to reside. Van Jones for instance – self proclaimed, card carrying Communist. Anita Dunn always turns to the writing of Mao – one of her favorites. Bill Ayers & Bernadine Dorn have basically been a combination of anarchists or domestic terrorists since clear back in the sixties. There are plenty more, scores without doubt, including a major Muslim influence that is quite present both within the White House which also provides financial support via various programs related. The books that s c recommended are very good in coming to a better realization and understanding as to the direction we have been subtly yet sublimely directed for a very long time. bob has a very good grip on what is taking place. A clear understanding of the underpinnings of the Obummer administration and the well camouflaged direction and influences that he has been using applies to eric, Ted, s c, Lothele, myself and many more. Come November I pray that number will not be “many” but “millions and millions”!!

    • Lothele Davis

      Bob, accolades for all you spoke! Those words are God-given truths! So sad very few people are awake to the current trend of things happening in this country! The only unnecessary part of your message was the initials at the end. Is that your intelligence?
      Language shows more than anger. It shows that we don’t have command of the English language enough to not lower ourselves to animal responses.

      mccain was a setup and just like him romney will not beat obama,rove wonders why obama attacks romney, rush wonders why press gives romney a pass. its all reverse psychology thats who obama wants to face. bachmann says the press is trying to influence this election and she is right. princess pelosi said republicans will not show up en masse for romney. wake up people thats marching order for dems to go vote for romney.

  • JUKEBOX

    This is just another step toward what should be putting a new nail in Obama’s political coffin, but just like a vampire, he will arise at night to propogate his evil. I am surprised that he is able to walk in the sunlight without burning up. I do believe Obama has made some type of pact with the devil to keep his teflon career intact

    • Lothele Davis

      Doubt that his teflon brain/butt is intact! It is that people are just to asleep or dim thinking to see the picture on the wall in front of them.

      • http://Drudge exbobbie

        Sorry Lothele, the only picture the ignorant masses see before them is the picture on their TV,s, i.e, American Idol, Jersey Shores and all the other garbage being fed to them, that’s why they are ignorant. I remember some political show on TV, where they interviewed people on the street in NY and asked them some simple questions, like who is the VP of America, 4 out of the 6 didn’t know. These people don’t care what’s going on at the moment, and they wont until it’s too late.

    • mark aspinwall

      obama doesnt have to make a pact with the devil. The bible says we have already seen antichrists and we will see more. The antichrist comes in many forms. Therefore Obama doesnot have to make a pact with the devil he is the devil.

  • tim

    obama has been trying to set up a war in this country between black and white since he was elected!!!
    As far as the senate they vote for these fools and don’t even know who they are. Look at the judges obama put in the supreme court!!! You and I knew more about thier history than the senators of the USA!!!!! We need people in the senate and house who care.

      Step back,put down the crack pipe and get off of that ridiculous BP dog and pony show. That trivial incident has almost no relevance on anything yet you use it as fodder to stroke your BS. That is why some of you can’t be taken seriously and need to get a real life. A person like Bo Brownstein has much more influence on the collaspe of the American economy and our moral decline yet you concentrate on a BP nobody. Maybe if you actually cared who Brownstein was you’d be more concerned about who is really taking America for a ride. Yup the barn door is open and it’s amazing how many financial hooligans you have let out to ply their devious trade.

  • Doc Sarvis

    What Administration has not nominated DOJ appointees who think in line with the President? From my quick read (on other sites), Tony West seems like a very qualified legal mind. I also don’t know any decent lawyer who could not argue either side of an issue; therefore Mr. West will likely do his job to the best of his ability to support the Administration – as most all other appointees have done in other Administrations. Had he not been qualified or had he been percieved as too radical he would not have been approved by the Judicial committee and confirmed by Congress.

      • eddie47d

        Since he was nominated by a wide margin then he must have the right qualifications. If not the nomination would have been held up through eternity by the opposition. Delay tactics were standard operating procedures for some time or didn’t you notice.

    • mac

      On the other hand Doc, he IS blackl; don’t you think that might have affected the judgement of those who rate his qualifications and radicality? Conservatives are still being too PC for their own good. Do you suppose *all* the senators who approved West were aware of his defense of Lindh? Personally, I’d go along with treating someone fighting the US while they are outside the boundaries of the US as having renounced their US citizenship.

      There were 13 not voting, evenly divided between Rs and Ds, and one Independent.

  • eddie47d

    More false shock from the Constitutionalists. It was only a couple of months ago that that Obama was criticized for taking out terrorist plotter Awlaki in Yemen. Being an American citizen you went to his defense and said an American can’t be killed without due process. Fair enough. Today you slam West for defending American John Lindh (giving him his due process). In other words a fair trial under our Constitution. I reckon it depends on what time of day it is when the Constitution really counts.

  • HKaufman

    Disparaging cantor, lets rant on about THIS.. For months, and I mean MONTHS, I have read nothing but Journalistic biased almost to the point of TREASON aimed at the current party in office.. Hypothesis made, WITH NO SUBSTANCE and GUESS WORK do not make an educated comment.. No matter what the President will want to do, or not want to do, not one second later the barrage of disparaging remarks ring louder then the Liberty Bell or BIG BEN.. Interesting how many people who do not know anything, do so the LOUDEST.

    NO matter who would be President, this maladjustment barrage of Conjecture blasts its way and all of a sudden we go from peace and calm to TOTAL biased ,Unsupported conjecture from the minds of WANNA BE.. IF you dont like something get up off your rears and do something beside hide behind a computer monitor throw out he did this , he did notdo this, he is responsible.. ENOUGH of this JOURNALISTIC barrage of written nonsense!!!!!,, STOP BEING A PART OF THE PROBLEM and try BEING A PART OF THE SOLUTION.. I dont care who likes this post or not. I got over being thin skinned over simple minded idiotic RHETORIC at age 10….

      I liked your post , but sitting behind the monitor of their computer is probabley the most influentual thing they could do . I would have not prosecuted the black panthers either , I laughed when I saw them on TV at the voting poles . ” It should take courage to vote “. Some neihborhoods had voter intimidation for about a 100, yrs without Federal prosecution . I know no neihborhood any place now , where the local police would refuse to respond to black panthers or anyone else trying to intimidate voters . Actualy I think we have the best election justice in my life time now e are just suffering from the dumbest voters in my lifetime . and perhaps a very sophisticated candidate selection process , fueled by a captalist controled media . where evreything of real importance has aleardy been decided . We are left with heated debates on trivial questions fueled by the mainstream media . While the big questions that really will eventual effect all of our lives are not discussed at all , worse yet the big issues are often coveredup ported on in a maner that is designed to miss inform . This is how perhaps we got the dumbest voters in my life time . Sad to say they seem be in our congress and goverenment too . As the Goverenment themselves seem all to willing to act and accept the obviously false information . And call it politically correct , But how else can they bring on a new world money and eventualy world goverenment without telling us about it in advance . We might want to ask questions . The powers that be don’t want our questions becuase they have all the answers .

    if you think this move is bad, here’s another. one of obama’s boys went in front of the supreme court last week and ask the court to rule on a law that would allow the government to tell all churches who would be a cardinal,a bishop or even a priest , brother or administrator of any church. one of the 9 members stood up and said are you serious and obamas boy said yes. the vote was 9-0 no. just the fact that obama would even consider doing something like this tells me he is out to shut down and destroy all religion. i, have been saying this for sometime now and here is the start of it happening. this set back will not stop them . please keep on the watch.

    Hey Doc…what.kind of hallucinigenic drugs are you on……by the way…now it appears anyone can refer to themselves as “doctor” without the usual Ed. background. I bet you are a Chiropractor who studied at a local community college(certainly no offense to those educational institutions or to the field of Chiropractic professionals). Better yet, maybe someone in the black market sold you one. no doubt. How about we address you as Dr. Dumbass….because with that mind of yours…..well anyway, even you should be able to follow that train of thought. OBAMA and his evil entourage need to be evicted 11/12. Please people vote them out!!!!

        Doc, you have some friends here. Maybe if we keep at it, people will actually wake up to those who are actually trying to help. There are just too many on this site who spout the Fox News talking points. If people would actually examine the facts, they may reach different conclusions, but the discussions would be meaningful and perhaps lead to a workable solution to a problem. I am afraid that all you will receive here is diatribe.

        • MJNellett

          Fox Talking Points? The problem with you SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVES is that you never let the truth get in the way of your agenda. Facts? would you PROGRESSIVES really know a FACT if it hit you square in the face? I think not! You PROGRESSIVES are really good at emitting that arrogant, superior to thee attitude but you are the only ones who believe it. I don’t care what color your skin is but the color of your character is an entirely different matter. Obama’s character is that of a power hungry, anti-Constitutionalist, wealthy hypocrite! Now there is a lot of video tape out there to prove my point if only you had the eyes to see!

    • eric

      Obama is very little different from the two administrations that preceeded him , maybe just with a little more finase or class . Don’t get so workedup about the small stuff , look at the big picture . Are we going in the right direction ? were we going in the right direction before ? Do we even know what the right direction is ? Could we unanomiously agreee on the right direction ? So here we are pray

        Eric, please explain how you intended to use the word finase in your sentence, will you? Can’t understand your intention! Small stuff? There shouldn’t be any small stuff when it
        comes to elections, Eric! But I do wholeheartedly agree with the LAST three statements you made!

    • Karolyn

      Tpical conservative response.

  • Not Impressed

    So, as I see it, the Obama administration has full control of the judiciary and the senate and the house is being ignored or played for the fool. Next they will rig the election and the congress will turn a blind eye. Tell me exactly what I don’t see in this coming boondoggle?

    • Doc Sarvis

      “Tell me exactly what I don’t see in this coming boondoggle?”
      FACTS

      • Len Miller

        Right on Doc– yu said it all.

  • thomas seiler

    All right you can all line up to attack me here, but as far as I can see the only complaint against this West guy, other than that he is a Liberal Progressive (which is bad enough) is that he defended John Walker Lindh. Correct me if I am wrong but as Lindh was an American was he not entitled to an Attorney to defend him? To now suggest that he “has the keys to the front door” regarding Gitmo insuinates that he will now release all the inmates there of…….no rational thinking person can really believe that. It would take an act of Congress to do so and thats not going to happen. Obama said he would close it and it’s still open.

    • MJNellett

      Then who authorized a $750,000 soccer field for the Gitmo detainees? Just wondering!

    Obama and his leftist followers are being allowed to force America into the same Marxist fate that has befallen South Africa. Michelle Obama went there recently to help ‘celebrate’ Nelson Mandela’s birthday. Mandela, one of the Obama’s, and the left’s, revered heroes served as South Africa’s President from 1994 to 1999.

    There were 40,000 white farmers in South Africa. Over 1200 have been brutally murdered since 1994 – the year Mandela’s Marxist African National Congress, backed by the United Nations, European Union, Russia, China and the U.S. State Department, took power. The leftist controlled media in our Country does not report on these murders. As their leader, Obama says, “these are domestic disturbances” much like the Fort Hood shootings. As such, they do not rate a headline or anything. they are “non-news” events.

    This treatment of whites is in reallity an ethnic cleansing. It is encouraged and directed by the black South African leadership and their neo-world enablers. One of the consequences of replacing experienced farmers with hate filled thieves and criminals is that South Africa, once one of the worlds most productive agricultural exporters, can no longer feed it’s own people. “Spreading the wealth” and giving everyone their “fair share”, Obama’s stated objectives, are having murderous results for all whites in South Africa and have made things far worse for the majority of blacks as well.

    Here at home, our Treasury has been looted, home ownership is becoming a thing of the past, our schools and universities are hard left and have banned free thought, energy production is practically illegal, Industrial production has been regulated out of existance, Farms are in the process of being taken over, transportation is being converted to mass transit, news media is nothing more than a neo-world order propaganda outlet controlled by the hard left where all opposing views are suppressed, ignored altogether, or labeled as right wing extremism, religious freedom is under attack and the unborn and elderly are a problem which the leftists in charge believe needs a “final solution”.

    “Change you can believe in” or a nightmare in the making? For every new hard leftist appointment Obama is allowed to make, such as this West character, another nail is driven into the lid on America’s coffin.

    • Len Miller

      Marxist? Are you serious? There is nothing Marxist about the President. Have you studied Marx and the Hegelian dialectic? And you condemn a great leader and great man like Madella who spent untold years in jail simply because of the color of his skin and the strength of conviction to call out the Whites on apartheid.

      It is obvious to me that most of you who write here are bigots. I am sorry for you. You have no ability to recognize greatness and certainly no ability to work with someone who, no matter your hate filled diatribes, works for your best interests.

    • Teri Varga

      DENS – excellent, lucid, fact-based comments.

      Sincerely,
      one of the ignorant, BIGOTS on this forum (isn’t that what the progressives trolling around on this link are saying? – Talk about pot calling the kettle BLACK)

      PS – Do you think that when true Americans oust the Traitor-in-Chief, the libs and progs will finally disappear again into obscurity?

  • sabulaman

    Amen, Dens

  • chuckb

    dens, good accurate comments.
    again we see how words can defeat your enemy. remember the word “aparthied” it destroyed two self supporting countries “south africa and rhodesia) turning them into socialist marxist typegoveertnments, destroyed their capitalistic infrastructure and turned them into welfare states. does that sound familiar, while in the meantime our civil rights leaders were dancing in the streets, our education system was rejoicing, at last so. africa is free. aparthied has been defeated,. yes, they were free to murder, rape and rob.
    this so called president has this type of mentality and enough ignorant people following him to do the same to this nation. unfortunately, most of our liberals didn’t have a clue what aparthied meant.
    in this country we have the words racist and anti-semtism, the liberals bow to this alter and the bolshevik leaders use this to compromise our freedom. barry is their mandella.

    • Len Miller

      Respectfully, do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound?

      • s c

        Comrade ‘L,’ I have no reason to aim any respect in your direction. Are you starting at minimum wage like most of the utopians on this website, or are you getting union scale? Whatever it is, you’re being paid too much. By the way, comrade, if you were honest, you’d realize just how asinine you and all of your shill lemmings are. Go to Wal Mart and buy some integrity – right after you can rent some character.

      • chuckb

        respectively, i ask you, where do you get your knowledge of a person like mandella. this man was nothing but a terrorist in his own right. have you ever read the history of this man, how many people he murdered or had eliminated, i doubt it. he was made a hero by the civil rights organizers and the media in this country. if he had fought against the communist take over of so. africa you and the left wing marxist in this country would have branded him as a right wing dictator. so i would suggest you read the history of south africa before you brand other people bigots.and at the same time read what aparthied stood for, not what the marxists in this country twisted the meaning of.

  • Len Miller

    Respectfully, the writer of this article is woefully misinformed about the role of a lawyer. First, a lawyer should not be confused with the client that he or she represents; 2. The lawyer’s job is to represent the client to the best of the lawyer’s ability and to attempt to provide to the client every right to which the client is entitled. It is not the lawyer’s part of the system of justice to make judgments of guilt or innocence; etc. Making judgments in those areas are left to others– Judges or Juries. It is obvious to me that the writer has little understanding of our system– preferring instead to make judgments on the lawyer because of the client he/she represents. That is not only un-American, it is absurd.

    I suggest that the writer do a bit more research on how our justice system is supposed to work before putting pen to paper.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Great assessment!

  • Thinking About

    With sharia rushing through state and federal congress I just wonder how long it will be the next bill will be taking your children away from their parents whose only downfall is sending them to public school. How many more of our liberties will go away. SC has ruled corporations has freedom of speech, watch out they are intent on controlling contraception and it will not stop.

  • FWO21

    One of the sad things about all this is a lot of people will never know about it. They just believe Obama is the “one” to be in the White House. How very sad.

    • Daphney

      The sad thing is that a lot of whites believe it. i would think they would know better.

  • stephen russell

    The only West I know is Lt Col Allen West.
    He qualifies, NOT this guy,.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Okay; if you don’t know “this guy” how can you assume he does not qualify?
