Our Man Of The Year

December 31, 2010 by  

Our Man Of The Year

As we reported yesterday, President Barack Obama is the 2010 “Most Admired Man In America,” according to a Gallup poll.

He was followed, in order, by former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, former African President Nelson Mandela and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Interesting choices all, and they demonstrate one of two things. Either there is a dearth of people to admire or the masses are clueless about who these people really are.

Obama is a Marxist and former member of an American socialist party (a fact conveniently overlooked by the mainstream media) and a union tool who was not properly vetted, was ill-prepared and probably ineligible to hold the office of the President. Bush is a faux conservative One Worlder who bloated our government with social spending, stole our freedoms with the USA PATRIOT Act and other tyrannical legislation and embarked on a campaign of expanding empire America. Clinton is a serial adulterer, accused rapist, convicted perjurer and tool of the Bilderbergers. Nelson Mandela is a former terrorist — of course one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter (see Bill Ayers) — and long-time socialist whose claim to fame is he spent 27 years in prison and was subsequently given god-like status by Leftists and the mainstream media upon his release. Bill Gates is a One Worlder, Bilderberger and promoter of mass vaccination — something those brainwashed by Big Pharma propaganda and the mainstream media think is a good thing — who believes the world’s population should be reduced (of course, no Gates would ever turn up on a list of those to be reduced, just Smiths, Joneses, Taylors and some third world names we can’t spell or pronounce).

Reading about the poll got me to thinking: If Gallup polled me — which they didn’t, nor have they ever — who would I name? It took a while, but I decided on newly-elected Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.

All he did was defeat the Republican establishment in the Kentucky Senate primary and then the whole political establishment in the November election. And he did so with a cool aplomb while being savagely attacked on spurious charges of racism and kookery, never raising his voice or looking the least bit defensive. Despite the rantings of mainstream Republicans like Michael Steele and Mitch McConnell and raving Leftists like Mara Liasson, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann, Rand remained a statesman, responding to invective with rational, coherent arguments.

Here’s hoping Rand’s dad Ron Paul makes a run at the Presidency in 2012. If he’s unsuccessful, Rand will be primed and ready by 2016.

    Man of the year? With the names mentioned in the article above, I would have to go with Ron Paul. Rand is okay but I like his father more.

    • TIME

      Claire,
      I have met Rand and he seems like a down to earth guy with some good ideas. I agree His dad is a fine man and I respect him very much. Lets see how this works out.

      • Norm

        TIME
        When a bartender refuses to serve you or a real estate broker won’t show you a house, let me know how you feel about Rand Paul.

        • DaveH

          What?

          • Dogma-Free

            I’m just guessing here, but I think he might be talking about racism.

            I don’t really know much about Rand Paul, myself, and so couldn’t really comment on that.

            Ron Paul, on the other hand, I have been watching and listening to for several years now, and I do like his approach to things. He just seems so sensible about the budget, and especially foreign policy…it’s too bad FAUX “news” (the paid mouth-piece of the Republican party) wouldn’t/won’t give him the time of day.

            As for man of the year, I’d be tempted to say that maybe Julian Assange could be in the running.

            And is there a ‘Woman Of The Year’…or is this still about trying to push the male-centric agenda of the church, still? Otherwise, I might suggest the title of “Person Of The Year”, and have it open to women as well.

          • independant thinker

            Yes there was a woman of the year selected and Hillbill Clinton was chosen.

          • kate8

            DaveH – Just consider the source.

            Not worth biting on this one.

          • Norm

            “I don’t like the idea of telling private business owners [what to do]. I abhor racism. I think it’s a bad business decision to ever exclude anyone from your restaurant — but at the same time I do believe in private ownership”

            MADDOW: Do you think that a private business has the right to say we don’t serve black people?
            PAUL: Yes. I’m not in favor of any discrimination of any form. I would never belong to any club that excluded anybody for race. We still do have private clubs in America that can discriminate based on race.

          • http://yahoo Bob

            Rand Paul does not believe, that private business should be forced, to participate, in equal rights. This means, he supports the rights of private business, to decline service to minorities, or anyone else they do not like.

            Rand Paul, shows the true repub ideology, which will be further observed in this New Year, which can be summed up by “support the rich, forget the poor.”

            Obama, is the correct choice, for man of the year, and all others pall, in comparison.

          • JC

            Bob, Rand Paul believes in choice…whereas you and your type believe in forced coercion. That’s what Commies are all about.
            Now, consider…if a business owner decides not to do business with someone because of their race, he will soon be out of business.
            EVERYone considers racial discrimination to be wrong.
            BUT…NO ONE should be FORCED to make decisions.
            If someone wants to behave as an idiot, they are only hurting themselves in the long run.

            I for one do not patronize Japanese (foreign) car makers and I avoid “Made in China” as much as I can. Am I discrimating? Damned right I am. Is that my choice, Damned right it is.

            I’m pro American. If someone doesn’t like it, that’s tough.

          • Vicki

            A private business is private. They have a constitutionally protected RIGHT (see that amendment the liberals love to quote. 1st amendment) to discriminate.

            What liberals and a lot of conservatives fail to understand is shown in the example given about a restaurant. A business that serves food to its members can discriminate all it wants.

            A business OPEN TO THE PUBLIC can not. This is so naturally obvious that many people forget there is a clear and present difference.

            The astute reader will notice that there is a clear English difference between “a private business” and “a privately owned business”

        • TIME

          Norm,
          I don’t drink anylonger so I will not be at a bar any time soon nor getting a drink other than Tea, as far as I know drink Tea is not a problem with anyone I have met yet.

          As far as a realestate broker not selling me a house, Norm they are just the middle man. The house’s owner is the seller and I would be the buyer. Thus if I have either Great Credit as in score well over 700 plus as well have 20% plus down payment, and or the full amount in cash in hand what would be the problem.

          As it stands there are 10,000 home per month going into forclosure as of 2010. These numbers are projected to rise to 15,000 Plus per month in 2011.
          As far as I can tell Rand Paul had nothing to do with either of these event’s, nor my drinking Tea or when I did drink a bottle of Scotch.

          BTW – This problem is mostly based on “Balloon” loans, as in 1% for 3 years then poping up to 6 – 10% plus after the three year period of time.
          If one can’t afford a Million dollar plus home they should not be buying one let alone even looking nor taking on such an absurd loan format. as an ARM

          Its far more logical to pay a 20 – 30 year fixed loan at 7.5% then to have an ARM no matter how good the ARM looks on paper.
          As well don’t buy more home than you can afford.
          In plain words as it sits now people who are making $50 K Plus per year should not be buying a home for $500K or more, even a monkey can see thats utterly crazy.

          Yet thats why we have the issues we have, the “greed” from lenders and the cray idea that one can afford a home based on absurd thinking. Logic clearly shows these ARM loan’s are insane.

          Thus I have no clue what your point is ~ so Perhaps you can clarify it. So I can follow your logic.

        • barbm

          that’s crap. he said he doesn’t see a need at this late date for the civil rights legislation that was passed in the 60s. these days, it’s the blond haired, blue eyed men who are discriminated against. if you don’t believe it, take a look at the scholarships out there that are available to anglo males. there aren’t many. the only ones my sons are elligible for are the merit based ones. all scholarships should be based on gpa, not on race, handicap, or gender.

          • Vicki

            “Affirmative Action” of the 60′s is institutionalized racism.

            To force a choice in preference of someone based on color is racism for to make the choice you would have to have noticed the color.

        • Justine Dohl

          Norm you have that right. Paul will cut cut cut. And still bail out the banks….the big ones and then allow the big ones to swallow up the little ones in the name of free market..(ah free market isn’t that who Rand is named after? Ayn Rand? ) ..we farmers will be paying New York banks interest …..and foreclose they will and we’ll have no recourse like with the credit card debacle ………..we are third world and the republicans will take us down more…..we need FDR’s Glass Steagal brought back…and stop sending our jobs to 3rd world…(afterall who needs 100 shirts and sweaters in their closets)…pretty soon we won’t be able afford a shirt….

          • Bruce D.

            A think a well written article Bob Livingston. I also agree Rand Paul is a good man.

        • falling

          Norm, Should a bartender or realtor or anyone else refuse to serve someone in my town because of race, there is a pretty simple solution…refuse to give them your business. Racism as you imply it to be, is no longer a real part of our society. Competition and the free market will soon solve the problem if the government is forced to get out of the way of We The People. The same goes for corrupt businesses, overpriced insurance companies, and every other business that our government currently subsidizes…allowing ALL of them to become corrupt instead of allowing US to force them to deal honestly or go out of business!

          • JC

            The only real racism left out there is coming from professional race baiters like Al Sharpton. They can’t let it go because they make a living from it.

          • JeffH

            JC, you are absolutely correct about Sharpton. You can toss Jesse Jackson into that loop too. They’d both be looking for a job if there were no racism or they couldn’t manufacture some.

          • Allen Hill

            I agree, that is a clear and suncinct as it gets.

        • TIME

          Norm,
          I hate to burst your bubble as I now see where your going, but dude, private clubs etc. have been going since the first day man began.

          Have you never seen a Gated Comminute before? Al Sharpeton lives in one in New Jerrsy, did you know that Norm? Oh and if you don’t live there you can’t get in. You must pass all qualifications to live there, aka standards / rules.

          How about you just try and get into the “Kennedy Compound,” I would laugh my ass off, you can’t get within a mile of it with out being stopped even on the beach where the alledged – TIDE levels are.
          Or how about Ted Turnner, you know that Mr. quasi Liberal, who owns an ISLAND off BeuFord SC. Just try and get on that island.

          Or how about Al Gore who has a Home on Figure eight Island off the Wilimington NC Coast, oh thats right its gated at the bridge and if you don’t have the right sticker on your windscreen, you don’t get on.

          My God man in the state of MassaChewsits alone there are over 100 Privet clubs. New York has at least double that amount, how about old Calie I bet you can’t even count the number of privet clubs for the Wealthy quasi liberals where if your Jewish, Black, Hispanic, or Asian you will never see the inside of one of them even for a job as a servant.

          ** And you know what Norm, thats their right to do so, and you know what Norm I don’t care if they like it that way, thats their gig.

          Ever question why in a gated Community where the homes start at $1 million for a 1200 sqft shack there is a form to fill out before you can even buy the home, why is that you ask? Its to do a backround check on you to be sure you fit the profile of an outstanding new member of the Community. I know of many dozzens of them in Fl, GA, NC, SC, VA, Texas, NM, AZ, OR, WS, and even in Calie!

          Man when will you wake up and stop being a mindless droid that eats drinks and spits out what your told.
          You claim your educated and that you have held a job for years, yet time after time I am confused by your post, you either never got out much or your 10 years old. What is Norm?

          I mean really why all the hate filled rhetoric day in and day out, do you really think all of us are just stupid and live in a dark room somewhere under ground?

          My God Norm where I lived on Long Island there was a Golf Club hidden behind where my home was if you don’t have at least $100 million dollars you can’t even join it. Let alone you can’t even be a guest there, they open it perhaps ten times per summer at most.
          Did it bother me? No not at all, as a matter of fact it made my home and land worth a lot more, so it was a win ~ win for me, or a great investment.

          Norm, its ones rights to be able to tell me to leave their business if they so wish to, why is that such a bad thing?
          Hey even if I am acting in a well behaved mannor, its their club / home / place that they are invested in, they make the rules. Not me, nor you nor the Government. “”Envy is really a bad habbit.”"

        • DaveH

          Norm,
          Life isn’t fair, and it never will be, in spite of Big Government. All they do is make themselves and the lawyers rich. You of all people should know that. I’ve seen you complain often about the injustices and why we need Big Government to stop them. Yet they are here, in spite of the much larger Government we have compared to when I was a child.
          The Constitution guarantees us Freedom of Association. It doesn’t say you lose that freedom if your friends aren’t of a certain race. Yet, you and your Liberal cohorts think nothing of ignoring that and using Big Government to force your way on others.
          Liberals are no better than rapists who force their way on unwilling women. I can imagine a Liberal rapist — “but officer, that woman was discriminating against me because I am ugly”.

          • DaveH

            True story:
            We were little bigots as children. We didn’t mistreat black people, but we did avoid them. My dad lectured us constantly that we shouldn’t judge people by their skin color. As we grew into our teens, we had pretty much learned to be respectful of people of all colors. Then affirmative action came along. My dad, who was foreman at a cement plant, witnessed several blacks that took total advantage of the new special protections. Over the following years he became very prejudiced against minorities. So, the roles were reversed. We spent much of our time after that lecturing our dad that you shouldn’t judge people by their color. That’s the effect that Force has on people. They become bitter and divided.
            By the way, Norm, don’t exempt yourself from the bigot category because of your skin color. I have known more prejudiced blacks than I have prejudiced whites. Here is some evidence for that:

          • DaveH

            And where does all the Government force end? Will we have to pick our mates from behind a curtain so we can’t see their skin color? Will the Government include ugly as a protected class? Will ignorance be a protected class? Sounds ridiculous? It wouldn’t be to the lawyers. They would be laughing all the way to the bank (are already).

    • Harold Olsen

      Something about Ron Paul bothers me and it is something which I can not define. However, I DO know why I do not like Rand Paul. He ran a campaign against earmarks. After being elected, and before he even took office, he made a statement that SOME earmarks were alright and he would support them. As far as I’m concerned, he is just another lying scumbag politician. If he runs for president in 2012, as the idiots in the media believe will happen, he WILL NOT get my vote.

      • Ron

        Obviously you like the way our freedoms are being taken away from us.Obama had an evil agenda as you will see in time!

        • http://yahoo Bob

          Wron, Obama has a just, and fair agenda. Look at the polls, instead of dreaming.

          • Gianni

            Bob, you need to put your thinking cap on and realize why BHO’s #s are steady or have slightly risen. First of all, the # of unemployed is closer to %11 and when you consider the real # of unemployed (those collecting, those whose unempoloyment has run up and those who have all together just gave up looking for work) we’re looking at a number of people out of work closer to %15-17. Now, it seems that people are finally living w/in there means and the small unemployment $$ may just sufice!! SO, W/ THE 99 WEEK EXTENSION ON TOP OF THE INITIAL, NEAR 2 YEAR UNEMPOLYMENT, THE UNEMPLOYED COULD COLLECT FOR OVER 4 YEARS!!! AND IT’S THESE PEOPLE WHO CONTINUE TO RATE OBAMA… WHY NOT, THEY’RE GETTING PAID, RIGHT!!!?

        • Nick

          It appears to me you have been Becked.

      • barbm

        i don’t think rand will be as bad as you think. i used to be a journalist, so i know how these things can be blown out of proportion, clarifications are left out, or statements are taken out of context to make them sound as bad as possible. that’s especially true with the mainstream media when dealing with a tea party candidate. glenn beck did it to debra medina when she ran for texas governor, so it’s not just the left wingers. i’m so in anticipation of seeing whether we made a difference.

      • DaveH

        Harold,
        Then I take it you just don’t vote? A politician who keeps his word is indeed rare. On the other hand, though, if they keep their word and the voters have decided they want something else, then they are damned for that. The problem is that Government is just into too damn much, and there is no freaking way they can please everybody. The voters need to get their acts together and realize one size can never fit all. So the best we can do is shrink government dramatically, and expect our politicians to abide by the same morality that the citizens must obey.

    • JC

      I’m with you Claire. Ron Paul is the man.

    • BDOG

      OBAMA IS ADMIRED FOR WHAT? THEY JUST WRAP IT UP AND HOPE THERE IS ENOUGH STUPID PEOPLE TO BUY IT. SO FAR THEY”VE BEEN RIGHT BUT I THINK ENOUGH PEOPLE ARE FIGUREING THEM OUT.

      • independant thinker

        I want to know how Obama can be so admired when his approval rating is in the crapper.

        • Enlightenment

          The media is in the tank for Obama and all of them make up great things he has never done/ half truths, feed it to the masses and try to make something stick. If it does and the idiots take the bait Obama is a hero as he is proclaimed as the man of the year. But most Americans see him for who he is and never speak out, because why speak out when anyone can see what they are trying to feed you is crap. The rest of the masses who are stupid, idiots, uneducated and in colleges who are indoctrinated can’t wait to agree with anything the media says and then the media has them consistently voting and on there side. Also the more free stuff you give them the more they are on your side and will agree with anything you say. Soooooo… that is why they want a big government… give them cake until you get absolute control and then you drop the “HAMMER”; only the “SICKLE” is attached to it… then by the time the idiots figure it out, it is too late. The communist have used this trick along with others since man began.

        • Bruce D.

          To me it is an odd poll. They all had an extremely low percentage of the population behind them. I think also that people look for name recognition. There are a lot of good people out there but most fail to recognize people who put forth sincere efforts to help and focus on one or two negative points made as a focus by the press.

        • Vigilant

          IT,

          “In 2010, approximately 22 percent of respondents selected Obama, which is less than the 30 percent he received in 2009 and 32 percent in 2008. Presidents have dominated the Most Admired Man poll since its inception, taking the No. 1 spot in 52 of the 64 years.”

          His approval rating is higher than the 22% cited. Does that answer the question?

    • barbm

      ron paul and his campaign for liberty started the uprising that has become the tea party. rand is, so far, an unknown. i would vote for ron paul for man of the year. rand second, lou dobbs (who lost his job for telling the truth) 3rd.

    • Carole Howell

      Claire,
      My entire family have a lot of respect for Ron Paul, I believe he is a very honest and sincere person.

      I would like to change the subject and encourage you to all to listen to this interview when you have time and please come back and let me know what your take is on this information. Be sure to listen all the way through, it had some surprises for me.

    Gallop polls are a joke. Want to know what America really thinks? Put it on the Internet. Let us all vote. Stop making decissions for all of us based on a selected few. Man of the year? Someones not listening to America!!!

    • Robert

      I Agree, put it on the Internet for a vote! You no who is backing all of this the Rich, like Bill Gates, Opra, and some of your other filthy rich! Money talks, but according to the Bible, and you can read it in there, and it is true, the bad seeds are planted, and when it is time for harvest, can you tell me what will happen to the bad seeds? I no but do they, they had better make amends now, because God is watching, and you do not no what he has planned next! And no Scientist, Bomb, Government Money, Peoples Money, will stop him, For It Is Written And It Is True! If I Was in these positions I would be asking for Gods Forgiveness, as he will answer!

      • Bob Wire

        “I Agree, put it on the Internet for a vote!”~ while I might agree with your assessment how would any internet vote be worthy attention? I feel you are being both wise and narrow.

        TODay , the internet does not represent the people much less the people’s will or mood. You and I have set ourselves apart from the rest of Americans by being here and being active.

        If you went to a Tractor Pull event and asked the people that attended what they though about Tractors, their answers would be predictable.

        I don’t agree at all with Mr. Livingston’s blazing assessment of “O” unless he wishes to include all other presidents that are guilty of the same things.

        However, myself and Rand Paul are both a sons of the south, children of the Bayou and share the same values. He has been outspoken and fearless on some sensitive racial issues and personal liberties. While I understand him, he will be misunderstood by many that has not walked in our shoes, not enjoyed the rich full flavor of the Texas Delta, where Spanish moss drape the trees and everyone knows their place, finding comfortable to stay there. This is a world of the unspoken word yet understood.

        I would encourage Rand Paul to walk lightly until he has build up some political equity and capital,enabling him to withstand a lighting strike that’s sure to come. I’d like to see him have a long active political career and perhaps a shot at the 1st chair position someday.

        “O” would be my MAN of the Years if he repealed Affirmative Action, it is time.

        • jukebox

          “O” repealing affirmative action would be equivalent to Al Gore admitting that the world was getting colder.

          • Bob Wire

            If any one could repeal affirmative act today, it would be “44″.

            I’ve brought this forward on several occasions, it rarely gets attention.

            The topic is too hot to handle and too cold to hold I suppose.

        • JeffH

          Bob says, “I don’t agree at all with Mr. Livingston’s blazing assessment of “O” unless he wishes to include all other presidents that are guilty of the same things.”

          Bob, what is it that is so hard to believe about the truth of Obama and his Marxist roots? I know you don’t care for labels, but it’s all there for you to see, if you so choose.

          As for the Gallup Poll…I’m don’t believe in “political correctness”.

          • Bob Wire

            Hmm? So by applied same reasoning, JFK or William Howard Taft was both Marxist if you wish to expand the thought process. If so, ~ so too would be “O”.

            No, ~you are correct, Jeff, I’m not buying it. It’s a far reach.

            We should be able to disagree in policy without such narrow labels.

          • JeffH

            Bob, I am addressing, specifically, Obama and his radical Marxism, no one else.

    • James

      Alan, I agree. In my entire 286 years on this planet, Gallup has never asked me a single question.

      • Enlightenment

        I agree 100% with you and give you a big AMEN!!!!!
        I only know the Gallop Poll has never ask me anything are any of my friends anything which leads me to believe the sample is isolated, hand picked areas / zones of geographic locations are is basically flawed or faked.

        I do think out of the box and suggest everyone else does as well on any given situation in which the media, government are air waves are involved. Please investigate at every level and don’t believe me are anyone else,find out for yourself, do your own research and then you will know what the truth really is.

    • Harold Olsen

      I agree. Obama, Bush, Clinton, Gates, Mandela. None of these guys are people whom I admire.

        HEY! easy on Mandela, besides he shouldn’t be on this list”most admired man in AMERICA”, that’s like what about the Dali Lama or Julian Assainge? NOT AMERICAN. Or, does Bob actually know that??? as far as rand paul, not working with me, he hasn’t done anything,yet. yeah, I’ll give ya’ll the yet. yeah, I could care if you don’t want serve someone at your place of business for what ever reason, Freedom of choice,right? And, of course, everyone “Knows their place”. So, does that mean,just to be fair,you should have to wear a badge that says you’re a racist so I’ll know to kick your sorry ass out of my place of business,since I can’t tell by the color of your skin.

      • barbm

        polls are done by phone – land line. not many people have land lines these days, so these polls aren’t as accurate as they should be since they don’t reach a large percentage of the population. none of my sons have a land line, and most of my friends just have cells.

        • American Citizen

          All of our children have cells for their home phones and I hate them. The sound goes in and out and you lose part of what they are saying, especially if they’re moving from one place to another. It’s the younger generation that is in love with them. All of my older friends still have landlines. All technology isn’t that great. You even have to be careful what you put over the internet due to hackers.

          • barbm

            i don’t have a cell phone, but i have an on-star phone in the car for emergencies. i don’t think folks should be using their phones while driving, but the on-star service doesn’t take more than the push of 1 button, then you talk to it. many of my friends have both cells and land lines, but most think it’s a waste of money to have both. i even have a land line phone that plugs into the wall. when the electricity goes out, the cordless is worthless, but the old black dial phone still works. cells do help make people stop interrupting. the phone goes silent. :)

        • Enlightenment

          I have a land line and a cell and so do most of my friends and relatives and none of them have ever received a call from Gallop are any other poll. Most of my friends still have a land line because if one goes down… and it will, you still possibly have the other to depend on to make a call.

        • falling

          I guess I am one of the odd ones, because I am CONSTANTLY being called by Gallop for polls. I wish I could get them to take my name off their dang list, but they just keep calling!

    • Harold Olsen

      I wasn’t polled either. I’ve never been polled and I do not know anyone who has ever been polled. Several years ago (the early 90′s) I signed up for online polls on Zogby’s site. I was supposed to be notified of any and all new polls. After signing up, my registration was confirmed. I’m still waiting to be notified for my first Zogby poll.

      • independant thinker

        I am signed up for a couple of polling organizations one is “Ipso-i-Say” and I receive at leaqst one new poll a week from them. very few of them are political but there are some political related questions. I cannot remember the name of the other poll I am signed up with off hand but they are more likely to ask political questions, economic questions, etc. I receive about two a month from them.

    • Paula Finneran

      I do not know how anyone can claim Obama is the best President when he cannot even prove that he is an American. NON AMERICANS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PRESIDENT. HE IS A HOAX and should be impeached.

      • Nick

        I think you are missing the point. All candidates for the presidency must prove to the Federal Elections Commission that they were born in the U.S. to be certified as a candidate.
        If Obama had been born anywhere else the right wing would have spent any amount to prove it.

        • falling

          Nick, the Federal Elections Commission merely oversees election financial matters. The Speaker of the House is supposed to check the validity of a presidential nominee after the primary election is over. When McCain’s eligibility was questioned, Democrats in the Senate rushed through a non binding resolution determining that children born to military persons stationed outside of the US hold natural born status. Republican’s went along with them rather than insisting on new law being passed to clarify the constitutional definition of Natural Born. At that time McCain could have questioned Obama’s status but chose not to, in fact during his recent re election bid, he again stated that no one should question Obama’s eligibility. Did he make a deal…or does he truly believe there should be no vetting of presidential candidates?

      • Nick

        It is so simple anyone should be able to understand it. Obama proved to the Federal Elections Commission that he was born in America. He doesn’t have to prove it to people who will just refuse to believe it.

        • JC

          He’s proved nothing more than that he knows how to cover his tracks.

    • Vigilant

      wasadoc:

      As I told a poster before, the reasons Obama was could be re-elected were:

      (1) the power of incumbency and name recognition
      (2) a growing number of indolent “have nots” (thanks to government making them dependent on government) who will vote selfishly to keep their handouts
      (3) a large number of blacks who will vote for him because he’s black
      (4) voter registration fraud
      (5) ballot box stuffing
      (6) new young voters fresh from university and high school socialist indoctrination courses
      (7) unions and trial lawyers who contribute heavily to him for paybacks
      (8) a lamestream media in the bag
      (9) Hispanics who favor illegal immigration and amnesty
      (10) the support of hard core statists like George Soros who fully understand and encourage the breakdown of our economy and government

      There are other reasons as well.

  • http://TW readmylips

    The most admired person should be setup in categories. And, there should be no selections or names to choose from. Let those voting think and come up with names for the different categories. No one person can cover ALL areas. For instance: Politically I’d vote for someone who is probably unknown but making a difference: Christie of New Jersey. Intellectually: Charles Krauthammer. et cetera.

    • Harold Olsen

      I agree. Christie has shown that he has got a pair and he is kicking butt. Krauthammer is one of the VERY FEW journalists whom I admire and I seldom disagree with what he says. If fact, he is the ONLY person on Fox that I admire.

  • D Engineer

    Most admired man in whose eyes? No one asked me either. I do not know anyone that was asked. Where do they get bogus info like that anyway? I can only guess they polled the folks at MSNBC news, CBS news, and ABC news. They are probably are the only three groups that would have answered like that other than our enemies overseas that love Obam because he is disarming America and destroying capitalism as we know it. I can see some of his voters that are still under his spellthat don’t know any better voting for him but most re beginning to see they light as more folks are realizing that he was more interesting in taking over the economy and healthcare than he was in creating jobs and fixing our domestic problems such as dying small business and the housing industry. Truth be told and reported correctly Obama would be one of the most despised men in America.

    • eddie47d

      Capitalism needed to be kicked in the teeth for all the shenanigans they pulled just a short few years back. Sadly you have forgotten or have selective memory. You can all talk about refreshing America with the blood of patriots but are somewhat silent on refreshing the misdeeds of Capitalism. With the disarming issue you brought up; All our troops,weaponry,and expansionism hasn’t made us any safer so maybe it’s long overdue. Our allies don’t rally around us anymore and are turning to other nations to help solve the world problems. That slide began awhile back so don’t be throwing your Obama card at me. Let Obama rise or fall on his own merit not from right wing thuggery and false labels.

      • jukebox

        You talk about right wing thuggery, HA HA. What do you call Charlie Rangel, William Jefferson, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Richard Trumpka, Andy Stern, and all of those Democrat millionaires who have gotten rich off the working class of people.

          Charles Rangel was once a good guy but when good people do bad things they also need to be punished. He should be forced to pay what is due and then resigned. The same with capitalist corporations and their misdeeds. Time to put a few more CEO’s in jail and reorganize those companies. Quite a few got a free pass and even retirement bonuses. What a system.

Since Obama took office, there has been 200 new rules from the EPA, 100 new regulations from the Department of Labor, 183 new agencies formed for Obamacare, 540 new rules, 170 new reports required from the Financial Regulation Bill. Whew, and that was ALL on top of the regulations, rules, ect., that was ALREADY in place to destroy every business owners opportunity to make money, grow their business and hire new employees. I am expecting to close my business in the next few weeks. I just can’t keep up with all these regulations and requirements. NO ONE can. If business owners operate exactly according to the requirements of the government, both state and federal, they CAN NOT OPERATE. It’s madness.

If it hasn’t been around for 110 years then maybe you ought to stop gloating about how wonderful it is. The whole term should cease to exist if what is going on now isn’t capitalism.

            You are the same type of person who condemns religion because human beings who happen to call themselves “religious” have killed people. You diss Capitalism because PEOPLE who were Capitalists have done bad things.

            You’ll find few people in this world amongst the Christians and Capitalists, who would laud the nefarious actions of those who game the system and/or use the title to opportunistically enrich themselves.

            If you had a scintilla of honesty in you, you would admit that it has been the liberal influences of lawlessness and secularism that have created the bad players in the world, NOT conservative influences.

            You laud them all the time Vigilant with your deafening silence on the big boys who commit crimes. You know, in that capitalistic world that doesn’t really exist. When it comes to religion you condemn the few Muslims who commit terrorism as evil (rightfully so)but then condemn all Muslims as evil. So your hypocritical point against me is null and void. You want Muslims all over the world to apologize for the misdeeds of a few yet don’t expect the same from Christians. Pat Robertson preaches hatred do you condemn him. Do you condemn Mr Swartzsman who is making billions as a hedge fund manager from nefarious actions. He hardly shows Christian values so are you making him accountable in how he manipulate the worlds economy out of greed. His actions reflects on our status as a nation and controls a lot of money that is being misused.

        Yes Norm, I agree that capitalism had some missteps and mistakes were made, but socialism is certainly not the answer! That has been tried and discredited everywhere else in the world. Let’s fix what is broken but not scrap the entire system. I own a small business, and small businesses represent everything that is good about capitalism, and they can only function with freedom from excessive regulation and taxation. We currently have one of the most inept and corrupt administrations in American history, and I am not speaking as a Republican or a Democrat. The entire idea that the federal government can efficiently run our health care system is absurd! Our elected officials (and I use that term lightly) could not even operate a lemonade stand and stay in budget. How about telling government that they should work for less, and to get the hell out of our lives. Sorry, but Obama had idiot of the year sewed up before anyone ever heard of Rand Paul.

Why has Capitalism been allowed to sprew toxic assets (credit default swaps,etc)around the globe. Devastating whole communities and even countries? If “true” capitalists didn’t stop their shenanigans then they are part of the problem. Why aren’t Hedge Fund Mgrs. (who do make billions) taxed on their income like other Americans? They pay 15% vs. 28-35 % for the rest of us. I suppose “true” capitalists disown them too. Steven Schwarzman is the leader of that band of thieves. Why do they get this huge tax loophole where they can actually bet against America? More Free Enterprise for the unsuspecting dumb downed Americans and you seem to love it. As a minor note ; One Hedge Fund Mgr. makes enough money to hire 658,000 teachers. A rather sad note on Capitalistic greed.

Unlike eddie who obviously thinks the government should take that managers LEGALLY Gotten money (If you did that it would be called theft) and spend it the way eddie wants.

            Of course the manager might hire one of those teachers for his own kids. Then again he might not. It is HIS MONEY. He did not put a gun to eddies head and take eddies money. He did not force eddie to participate in the hedge fund.

            Obama however IS forcing ALL OF US to participate in health insurance. Which is the more deserving of man of the year. I vote for the one who doesn’t have a gun pointed at my head. The Hedge fund manager gets my vote long before Obama.

One of the first thing a new congressman learns is to stay there, you must raise money and that is the secret to those in leadership have learned … they then use this money to reward those that go along with them and giving them select positions on committees.

    The Gallop Poll called me the other night and asked a bunch of stupid questions. The first question was if and how I voted in the last election. I said I voted the Libertarian ticket, which seemed to baffle the caller. I then cut the call short because it was a waste of time.

      When the selection of questions offered is carefully framed to elicit specific answers…it’s definately an orchestrated waste of time.

      • American Citizen

        You’re right, I’ve often wondered what the pollster put as my answer as the answer I would give wasn’t there. Those polls are rigged to get the intended result. I was even hung up on once when I didn’t give the expected answer as to my political affiliation.

      • Vigilant

        Let go lightly on the pollsters. Gallup has a pretty fair track record for accuracy or they wouldn’t have remained in business for so many decades.

        Admit it, the “American Idol” mentality has reigned superior for some time now. Most libs get their 10 minutes of tripe from the lamestream media and believe they are “knowledgeable” on current events, politics and history. If they even watch the “news,” that is.

        Ask them to name five Founding Fathers of the United States and they are clueless. Ask about why we celebrate Thanksgiving and they scratch their heads. Most don’t even know the century during which the Civil War was fought. Ask about about any of the popular sitcoms, American Idol or top songs and they’ll be able to write a doctoral dissertation on them.

    If that Gallup poll had been conducted in order to identify the Worst Enemy of the American people then, hands down, Barry Soetoro is the winner, and the rest of the pack, George Bush, Clinton-The-Snake and Bill-The-Elitist Gates would be in select company.

    Who knows what the hell some of these people are thinking when they throw Mandela into the mix, another faux hero the likes of Cassius Clay-The-Mohammedan, Tiger Woods, Jesse Jackson, Al Tawana Brawley Sharpton and Charley Rangel.

    It took the dumbest electorate comprised of certifiable dullards, know-nothings, bleeding heart liberal morons, and their ilk to elect the Muslim-In-Chief to the pRESIDENCY; this is just reflective of the shallowness of their beliefs.

    Why do people praise politicians for being elected? Rand Paul hasn’t done anything yet. If you want to give accolades to someone for the Paul election, shouldn’t it be to the Kentucky voters? I guess that is what polls are for, to get the opinions of those polled. If you poll more Democrats than Republicans the poll would probably favor Obama and Clinton. If you poll more Republicans than Democrats that poll would probably favor Palin and Bush. Even the polls that really count, ie elections, only poll from 50%-60% of elgible votes as the rest don’t participate. This “democracy” Or “democratic republic” has passed over many great leaders due to lack of participation of elgible voters.

    Did you ever think that it may have been a faulty poll, taken of just liberal journalist? The respondents were undoubtably democratic republic hating individuals who are backers of socialistic and communistic change through Fascist Marxism, such as Obamalites. Maybe the poll was taken from just Obama appointed Czars, then the results would be understandable. However it was done, it was surely not the opinions of the American people in general, us common folk that make up the tremendous majority in these United States of America. But whatever, you must remember the source, a liberal rag that is on its way to bankruptcy. Maybe the gist of the faux poll was to entice people to buy the magazine because of incredulity. Just totally unbelievable.

    I’m not surprised Gallup has nominated President Obama as the most admired man in America (?), 2010 has been the year of the radical left. Did at any time Gallup mentioned President Reagan as the most effective President of this country? not that I remember.

    I was never polled and if so, I would’ve given him a NO PASSING GRADE.

    Gallup should’ve focus on what Obama is trying to do our country and nominate him as the “Man who hates America”.

          As far as singing Glenn Beck’s praises today the last day of 2010 and what is known public record, would place you in the ticket line for a flight to Uganda.

          This man is a charlatan and that’s all he’s ever been. A traveling carnival elixir pitchman, a barker and a very good one that Rupert Murdock has found favor and offered a platform as it serves Fox and the Fox agenda.

            This~ you are entitled, but entitlement is not now or has ever been validation of sound reasoning.

            Division of thought is rarely so blessed.

            And for the record, I agree with some things Beck brings forward on a very gut level, but education, prudence and temperance overrides the knee-jerk response to act-out. It isn’t like I don’t have a clues where he’s coming from, but that I know he’s attempting to appeal to rage and the most outrageous among us to affect change, that somehow, ~ any means justifies a desired end.

            This just can not be, cannot be permitted to happen and honor the Constitution and Rules of Law most of us accept and willing to work inside a framework of “due process”

            We can’t yell, “Bring them out here sheriff, we plan to give them a fair trial and hang’em!”

            Beck, speaks treasonous thoughts and I’m left to think you might as well. Myself, for now, ~I refuse, not seeing the situation so dire as to throw us into revolution with any outcome being most uncertain with human loss and suffering grand for all. Such an event would only serve America’s enemies and bring your loyalties to serous question.

      I admire Rush but not Hannity or Beck. Hannity gives me the impression that he has no real political convictions and he takes the stand he does purely because that’s the stand he thinks he should be taking. He can’t even decide if he’s a Republican or an Independent. Months ago he said on his show that he no longer considered himself to be a Republican but an Independent. Lately, though, I’ve noticed he’s again referring to himself as a Republican. As for Beck, he’s nothing but a buffoon. I agree with you on Obama, Reid and Schumer. They are nothing but low life scumbags.

      • Bob Wire

        of the three, you choice wisely. Rush is the only true heavy weight among them.

        • Vigilant

          But Beck will ultimately have more influence on molding public opinion than Rush.

          • Bob Wire

            considering the nature of Becks audience, possibly so.

            Beck is a showman and his followers, the true believers will buy whatever he is selling.

            Beck has got Rupert to pull his chestnuts out of the fire which offers him much protection and latitude.

            Rupert is no stranger hard ball business and what it takes to build and maintain an image. He has few limits that I’m aware of. Beck is to be with us awhile it seems.

            Their financial ranking has indeed gone down so I can’t disagree on that. No man should live as a slave and Apartheid did just that. During that same period black women were raped by those whites and nothing was done about it. An unhappy scenario for all women under both systems.

          • JC

            Black people were not enslaved under apartheid. They were given the majority of the country in which to live in their indigenous fashion “apart” from the white people….”apartheid”, get it?
            No one held a gun to their heads to live or work among the whites.
            In fact, the system of apartheid was based on the American Indian system of reservations. Which is not a great system either.
            But I doubt we would condone the Indians coming into cities and bombing people.

            No Mandela is not a “great” man. He is a terrorist who’s talents couldn’t maintain, let alone build what he inherited in S.Africa.

        he’ll have too eddie, if he’s to ever stay in the game long enough to be effective.

        Interesting dynamics ~ the way politics can be played out. ~ We need people on the inside but without the pressure from outside, there is limits to their effectiveness regardless of their position.

        Yet, while we see the more effective the inside can be, the more despised they can be.

        If Harry Reid and Nancy didn’t have the support outside, they could never have been effective. They didn’t achieve want they did without strong outside pressure.

        But as we hear so many say, “They are cramming it out our throats!” which is total bull hockey as these people wish to ignore or discount outside pressures, a common view of exclusive FOX watches.

        Nobody likes the game when they are losing yet love the game when they are winning.

          Perhaps you don’t get the news where you live. When the majority of Americans were against Obamacare and the Congress passed it into law, I would call that cramming it down our throats. The 2010 election was perhaps another bit of news you misssed.

          It’s not ignorance or discounting of outside pressures that animates Fox watchers, it’s the very fact that those oputside pressures exist that pisses us off and we wish to make the pols more accountable.

            NEWS? ~ I question what you are calling News?

            I’ll keep it simple,~ and the proof of this “majority” you offer us how?

            How do you provide this proof of majority? 2010 election returns? ~ Many were claiming a majority a year prior to 2010 election returns?

            Seems you wish to be deaf to the voice of opposition and only hear your own voice. That happens when anyone only allows themselves limited input, select their coverage of current events.

            The 2010 was midterm election, ~ the youth vote failed to show up and most likely 30 % of the overall DNC vote as they tend to not as politically active as their counterpart and don’t bother with midterm elections. They should! but that’s just the way is been working.

            But read into it what you wish, your miscalculations are most welcome. If you think you went against all the DNC’s might midterm, ~ fine with me.

            I personally think you are over playing your hand but lead out Kingfish.

            When you call your elected representative and voice your opinions, I consider that “OUTSIDE” support or opposition and what I meant when I used the term.

            But you are correct, all outside support is not necessarily a good thing.

            The TEA Party is outside support, is it not?

            HCR went through and was passed because of outside support and in spite of outside opposition with the power of the House and Senate.

            How hard is it to accept the fact, you simple lost?

            Even now, ~you wish to believe it’s not over! ~ maybe it’s not.

            But~ by the time the power is mustered to repeal it, too many “money men” would have positioned themselves to gain from HCF in it’s proposed form and will fight any repeal of it.

            So I really think we are stuck with it, for better or worse.

      So, those coal miners have no minds of their own, Norm? Is that what you’re saying? If they think a job is too dangerous, they’re not smart enough to seek other work?
      You should quit being so condescending to coal miners, Norm.
      We all know the Liberals are more capable of spending our money than we are, Norm (until other peoples’ money is exhausted at least).

      Speaking of that, in a study it was found that Liberals donate 30% less to charity than do Conservatives. And Conservatives on average earn 6% less than do Liberals. Of course that doesn’t count the donation of other peoples’ money or Liberals would win hands down.

      • DaveH
      • JeffH

        DaveH is correct with his charitable donation figures. Also, the “working poor” donated more per dollar earned than the middle class or the rich.

      • Vigilant

        I admit that I’ve pondered the intelligence of (unionized) coal miners, who vote for Obama even though Obama’s going to put them out of work if he gets his way with cap and tax.

        • JUKEBOX

          Everyone that votes needs to go observe the coal mining regions in America to see the conditions firsthand. In some areas the conditions are worse than Watts, Detroit or Harlem, yet these people are proud, hard working, and as gullible as any historic Democrat voters.

  • Disabled Veteran Brian

    Man of the year? Not hardly…that would go to someone who did not lie to the voters, lie about his place of birth, lie about balancing the budget and cutting spending and creating jobs, hey, the list would take too long to write.

    Instead of this charlatan, I elect myself the new Gallup Poll and vote for Rand Paul, followed by Glen Beck, Mike Huckabee, and hundreds of marines, soldiers, airmen, and sailors putting their butts on the line fighting a war far from here, that Mr. Obama also lied about when he said he would get us out of those sinkholes in the sand, wanted by no one and needed by no one. Neither of those wars are worth one American life.

    Another hard fact missed by media and researchers, is Omoron went to several meeting and training programs sponsored by Soros and that is how Oidoit developed his love for Aliski and Marx. Mandela was a beleiver in socialism and government control of everything even food production, MLK was Mandela’s idle and he was a socialist communist leaning clown to. When I hear people fawn over TR, now there was a government control freak and beleived in population management and started the process of taking property out of production and making worthless parks or wilderness areas. Any nano braine moron who would beleive Omoron is a great person, must be in airy fairy ether land.

    • eddie47d

      “several meetings and training programs” with Soros? Were those secret meeting? Opps, since you know about them the cat is out of the bag. I always knew you had the inside skinny on everything. Go back to your moonshine!!

    • JeffH

      i41, you’ve got to get it correct!

      George Soros hand-picked Barack Obama to challenge Hillary Clinton (and ultimately defeat GOP nominee John McCain). Barack Obama came under special Soros sponsorship in the 2004 U.S. Senate race and raised $60,000 for his campaign. After attaining victory, Obama met personally with Soros, then attended a fundraiser at his home.

      On December 4, 2006, two years after getting into the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama went to Soros’s New York office to be interviewed for higher office. Soros then took Obama into a conference room for other politically subordinate billionaires. With money and connections assured, Obama announced for the presidency soon afterward.

      Of course, Barack Obama began his political career as the chief national trainer for ACORN, which now faces lawsuits in 14 states for voter fraud. Obama’s mentor as a community organizer in Chicago was Gerald Kellman, a Saul Alinksy protegé. To begin his meteoric rise toward the White House, money originated from what Clarice Feldman of American Thinker calls the “Gang of Four”— Soros, Peter Lewis, Stephen Bing and Herbert & Marion Sandler. All are Jewish billionaires.

This has been an ongoing mess for years. The Democrats and Republicans leave a lot to be desired as far as I am concerned.

    It is indeed amazing to read responses about this poll on different web sites. Is is almost universal that the people who responded did not know what they were talking about – unless you agree with the results. On this website, Obama is to be damned and Beck is to be praised. I suspect history will have something to say about both and about the lies told about them – Obama is a muslim and Beck is an idiot. Whoops – one of those is correct.

    • Harold Olsen

      That is 2 more people than I know who will admit that they voted for Obama. People whom I KNOW voted for him because they said he would save this country from ruin (actually calling him a messiah), by February of 2009 denied voting for him. I find that an interesting pattern among liberals whom I have known over the years. People whom I knew who voted for Clinton denied it within six months after he took office. Two years after Carter took office, they were denying they voted for him.

    • JeffH

      jb, I’ll admit that at first I was quite impressed with the young Obama. He seemed bright, intelligent and full of vim and vigor. But then I started to notice that he always made promises without any substance. He’d tell you what you want to hear…always promising Hope & Change. I got suspicious and then I got a computer and then I realized that he was a Marxist radical and would be a bad thing for the country…I woke up very early unlike so many today that still refuse and prefer to support Marxism/socialism and communism.

      I was with the George Wallace Presidential Campaign in 1967, and he tried to warn Americans about the pointed-head pseudo intellectual liberals back then. At the time, I was not politically savvy enough to grasp the meaning og those words. Now, it is hard to believe that intelligent people cannot understand that Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Call me Senator Boxer, and this entire administration fit Walace’s description perfectly.

      • Angel Wannabe

        Jukebox_I can’t quite grasp peoples refusal to see the f-ed up mentality of the Socialist/Progressive Machine either. The only thing I can atone it too is that perhaps a lot of these Progressives are kids, who our fantastic education system managed to brainwash into thinking socialism’s/communism is “kewl”, and now they can’t or won’t think for themselves. They always say ya gotta gettem’ when they’re young, I guess the progs are right on that faction!__Maybe if we got they’re heads outta drugs, X-Box, off TV maybe then, they’d get creative and start to learn just what made this country tick!

        • Vigilant

          Angel, you’ve hit the nail on the head (again). “Education” is a nice word that fools the voters into thinking that The Department of Education, NEA and other teachers’ unions actually believe in improving the quality of our children’s education.

          I have been amazed how overlooked this single factor has been in dumbing down our kids’ education, teaching the Howard Zinn style of US history from a communists viewpoint, etc. Each graduating class from American high schools and universities puts fresh socialists on the voter rolls.

          I’m truly afraid that these new, ignorant generations will ultimately topple the bastion of freedom we call America.

We knew, things were changing but we couldn’t put a finger on it on HOW or WHY? I know I feel partly responcible. I tell our kids all the time. Keep abreast of whats going on, no slacking like we did.

          • Angel Wannabe

            Vigilant____Imagine what our kids could be without all the distractions of today?!__ Perhaps they’d be another John Quincy Adams. A portion of his story is facinating as is a follows, At eight years old he stood up and help to defend the Minute Men with his own Musket. At the age of 11 he was sent overseas as Secretary to the Ambassador. At 14 he was Secretary to the Ambassador of Russia. That’s two Diplomatic assigments at the age of 14. It was typical of the education system back then. He was also a special diplomat to George Washington when became President. He also special diplomat to John Adams when he became President. A US Senator under Thomas Jefferson. There is more on John Quincy Adams at Wallbuilders.com. I have the complete history on mp3__
            __________Sadly Vig, if parents of today would allow a brilliant child to follow his duty/dream such as John Quincy Adams did, the Authorities would probably site the parents for neglect and slavery. There are no longer heros, we don’t allow them to be built or created.

          Exactly! and the Truth is ! from Jack’s point of view, any means justifies a desired end !

          that’s what many here wish for “an desired end by any means” CODE RED, deny people their rights, torture , punish, kill, maim, lie, cheat or steal. Whatever it takes for a desired outcome.

          And that is the truth I’ve learned from you that accept this as being somehow OKAY.

          But it not okay! and never will be okay.

          Certain Rights and Rules are common and should be applied to all or none.

          This movies was about a Commander thinking he was above the rules and the consequences. A death of a soldier that was completely avoidable and unnecessary not so much as serving as greases for the wheels.

      • Harold Olsen

        I don’t know if Eliot Ness was a crook or not but he was a phony. He had little or nothing to do with capturing Al Capone and putting him in prison. He was used as a diversion while other agencies got evidence against Capone. Ness’s exploits are mostly fiction.

I realize you want to be a butt buddy of Onumnutts. With your claimed history of a raindancer, I couldn’t and wouldn’t expect anything less from a several generational ward of the government. Would bet that you are a affermative action ACORN idoit.

      I’m not so sure about the History Channel. I got cable because of the History Channel and they have shown themselves to be a disappointment. I’ve seen shows where they distort history. They often get their facts wrong. They don’t even know Wild Bill Hickok’s real name. According to one show I saw they claim it was William Alonzo Hickok, rather than James Butler Hickok. They seem to also be more interested in doing shows about UFO’s and monsters than real history. I’ve come to call them the Fantasy Channel.

    Mandela is still a terrorist and a racist! Has anyone looked at what is happening in South Africa now? Whites, even children younger than 2 are being raped, beaten, tortured and their farms being tken from them. This was a started by Mandela who chanted the little know ditty, Kill the whites, right along with his wife and leading the terrorists. This is who the liberals celebrated as a great healer!

    Bill gates gives millions to charities. The only problem is 99% of them are in other countries! I also saw him on some type of political talk show where he called for death panels, saying we were over populated. This is the great humantarian who goes to congress and calls for more work visas to be issued, I guess 100 thousand job takers from India are not enough for old Bill!

    Next, Bill Clinton. But what can I say about old bill and his bilderberg member wife Hillary!

    Next Nobama, all hail the messiah or heil Hitler if you prefer! Bush gave us the patriot act, but Nobama campaigned on removing it! What did the liar Nobama do? Why he took that hated patriot act and expanded it!!! He added 30 czars and appointed people, by passing the congress, expanded the moriorium on drilling to 7 years across America so we would have to buy oil from his muslim brothers, the Saudi’s. He did this even after the courts lifted the ban on drilling twice. So Nobama said, fu to the courts and expanded it! Even no while in hawaii, he appointed 44 new people who have not been vetted by the congress. Well this will take a book to finish, but you get the drift. Anything that he cannot get passed by congress, he expands offices to do it anyway. He is out to destroy this country, take us out, take us down, turn us into a 3rd world country, taken away our ability to defend ourselves with this so called treaty with the Russians, refused to stop the invasion by the Mexicans and anyone else who walks across the southern border and appointed a hater of the 2nd amendment over the ATF. Sides with the Muslim terrorists while giving Americans lip service about how he is protecting this country. Tells the Muslim countries that America is not a Christian nation but more of a Muslim nation! Is behind the scenes in persecuting the Christians and promoting Islam. He is making slaves of US citizens and most are to stupid, to in love with the Messiah or just plain don’t give a chit! Say goodbye to American!

    This Country needs more men like Ron Paul and Rand Paul who are bluntly honest about the corruption in Government. The Lawyer politicians we’ve have in office for many decades have corrupted the political system to the point of not functioning for the people, but primarily only for themselves and their respective political party. When you can’t get a simple answer or explanation out of a politician, it’s usually an indication that the politician in question is a Lawyer. Lawyers are trained to speak out of both sides of their face to win arguments, not necessarily speak the truth. Unfortunately, they play that game on us citizens, when all we want is a straight answer! A perfect example of Lawyer speak is Obama and Reid. They always preach about “helping” us, but in reality are only greasing the ability for a socialistic takeover to slip in. I’m sick of Lawyer Politicians and won’t vote for one if there is an alternative.

    As with too many others that appear on this site, this article unfortunately cherry picks its issues with the various people mentioned. While I agree that all of the things that were written about the various contenders for the title are true, it is a pathetically incomplete list. I have little good to say about Obama. My primary gripe with Bush was his approach to fiscal policy, and that when he and the Republicans had a great opporthunity to reshape the federal government. While I disagree with much of the Patriot Act, and most of the thinking behind it, I at least recognize that the government was in a crisis situation, and that does not usually produce the best decision making. I don’t know that I would have done any better at the time, but I am pretty confident that I would have repealed large chunks of it when a little time afforded better reflection. Clinton I have little respect for, although I think that it is worthless “journalism” to be harping on possible rape issues this far after the fact, with no new evidence,and worth little more than smear. It reflects poorly on the writer. Mandela accomplished something I would not have thought possible – keep South Africa from imploding post-apartheid. It would have taken little more than a few words from him following his release from prison and South Africa would have made Rwanda look like a minor family squabble. While I disagree with most of his philosophies, I have to give him credit for what he actually accomplished, something that neither I nor anyone else posting here could have done.
    This column too often resembles Rush Limbaugh in that if it were more consistently and thoroughly honest in its presentation, it would have a much wider audience. This kind of “reporting” is easily dismissed by all but the choir because they know it is not consistently honest, let alone balanced. I don’t pretend that anyone, including me, is actually objective.

    And here is a good example of why I don’t believe most poll results.

  • Jeremy Leochner

    I may be a tad biased but I have some problems with Rand Paul. First the fact that he once claimed to be a board certified Opthamologist while forgetting to mention that the Board that certified him didn’t exsist. The second that he once suggested a way to stop illegal immigration was to put an electrified fence under the border. And finally that he once compared Islam, a religion of over 1 billion people, to a cult. My personal feelings on him aside I simply don’t feel he is man of the year matarial.

    • Bob Wire

      On point and duly noted regardless your bias. Rand Paul has much work to do if he is to reach statesman caliber and be a worthy contender in national politics.

      I think many, including myself see “something” there and we hope.

      Today the GOP is reaching out and looking for future leadership they are found badly in great need.

      Current leadership, has either shot themselves in the foot, or danced with the devil and everyone knows it.

    • JeffH

      Jeremy Leochner, perhaps you might want to qualify your comment. Rand Paul did not lie about his board certification although that is the way the leftist controlled MSM wanted it to appear.

      A graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine, Paul has been a practicing ophthalmologist in Bowling Green, Kentucky, since 1993, and established his own clinic in December 2007. Though he is no longer board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, he is certified by the National Board of Ophthalmology.

      Paul took the American Board of Ophthalmology (the largest governing body in ophthalmology) certification in 1995, passed them on his first attempt as well as three times during residency, and was therefore board-certified under this organization for a decade.

      He, along with 200 other young ophthalmologists formed the National Board of Ophthalmology to protest the American Board of Ophthalmology’s decision to grandfather in the older ophthalmologists and not require them to recertify.

      • Jeremy Leochner

        Your right Jeff I made a statment without fully knowing all I should. Upon reflection and a little research as per what you have posted I have realized I was ignorant of several points.I again apologize for having an incomplete understanding of this issue Jeff and I thank you for helping me realize that. As I still view Mr Paul as a liar in regards to his board certification I hope you will allow me to make this new statment after having done more research. I must point out I did see what appears to still be a discrepancy in Mr Pauls assertion. He claims that his organazations legitamcy is based on its recognition by the American Board of Medical Specialties. But when I went to their website and viewed a list of those they recognize and fund and classify as legitimate groups it did not list the National Board of Opthalmology as one of them. As such though Mr Paul did recieve his certification from a legitimate organization as I apologize for not realizing or pointing out, after leaving that group he was no longer certified by a recognized Medical group but by a personal one. As such for all intents and purposes he was not a certified Opthalmologist but continued to claim he in fact was one. He stated he left the American Board in 1997 and according to his record he established his own clinic in 2007. All the while being “certified” by The National Board of Opthalmology. So while claiming to be a board certified opthalmologist the organization he claimed certified him by all legal and official standards did not exsist.

        • JeffH

          You call it tamatos, I call it tomatoes…for all intents and purposes he’s a recognized and certified opthamologist…you know it and I know it…bias comes in many forms.

        • Bob Wire

          I’m glad you took the time to clear that up. I never bothered as I knew such a publicly false statement by a doctor would not go unchallenged one news cycle and the truth exposed.

          and by the way, Rand Paul devoted 20% (one day of five) of his office hours time with the economically challenged and needing of care.

          That’s not a requirement to open and run a doctors office in the State of Kentucky but a small glimpse inside the man.

    • M

      So Jeremy, tell us, why could a cult not be 1 billion strong? Do you have any clue what Islam is all about? Is it certainly not about love and peace.

      • Jeremy Leochner

        M I am an agnostic and have a certain view of religion. I dont believe in any form of organized religion but I respect those who do. The problem I have is if Islam is a cult then technically Chrisitanity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism are all cults as well. I suppose your right its possible for a cult to be that large but I doubt christians or jews or hindus would appreciate being called members of a cult and neither do muslims. I disagree with you on Islam as do numerous muslims. I dont believe in Islam but I think its wrong to compare a religion to a cult even if you dont believe in or agree with it.

  • JeffH

    Personally, I think George Soros should be “Man of the Year”!

    Think of one individual that comes to mind with his list of credentials?

    1. He’s truly an American Rothschild who’s made billions by destroying economies.
    2. He’s funded immigration rallies designed to sow discord and bankrupt the nation.
    3. He’s spent billions of dollars trying to legalize drugs in every way possible (medical, free use, limited carry, etc.).
    4. He massively funds public TV and powerfully influences its content.
    5. His organizations and money protects the 9/11 terrorists.
    6. His money funds academics–as long their work fits into his anti-American, anti-Christian agenda.
    7. His money is so powerful that the media generally fear him, and NO ONE EVER CROSSES HIM!(except Glenn Beck)
    8. He hates christianity and by extensions christians. What’s curious is that he obviously hates his own not only as evidenced by his boyhood escapades as a Nazi snitch, but when he backs anti-semites like BHO–and don’t tell me he didn’t know exactly who the Prez was.
    9. This one is the kicker that should have put Soros over the top.
    Soros spoke to a group of donors at the annual gathering of the Democracy Alliance in reference to the 2010 mid-term elections:

    Soros told those in attendance that he is “used to fighting losing battles but doesn’t like to lose without fighting.”

    “We have just lost this election, we need to draw a line,” he said, according to several Democratic sources. “And if this president can’t do what we need, it is time to start looking somewhere else.”

    Michael Vachon, an adviser to Soros, did not dispute the comment.

    Just a note: Dissatisfaction with the Obama administration has not been limited to Soros’s private gathering with donors.

  • CJM

    How can the ‘votes’ of a few represent the masses? Most of these polls are taken in the Chicago/New York City areas where Obama is the political darling. Had the polls been taken elsewhere in the USA, Obama would be voted the most reviled man of America. Admire him? For what? His attempts to change the Republic of the United States into the United States of Communist America? Impeach this illegal alien and send him back to Kenya where he belongs.

    • I’m Conservative

      You are totally correct! Thanks for sharing this with us.

  • Barbara from Kentucky

    Are you kidding – Rand Paul??!! Guess that since I live in Kentucky, I heard all of the dumb stuff he said. Sorry you missed it! My vote for man of the year is the female Governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer. She even has a brain and that’s more than you can say for Rand!

    • M

      Absolutely! Jan Brewer for President – sooner the better. At least, she exercises common sense and demonstrates a love for her country.

      • Vigilant

        I’ve always distrusted Brewer for the very reason that she dithered on signing the immigration legislation until she checked with the polls. Her approval rating was dismal prior to that.

        Moreover, she sometimes acts like she’s on some mind-fuzzing drug when she’s confronted with real-time, unscripted questions.

        Ultimately, the AZ law is one of the best things to come out in a decade. It was Brewer’s motivations that I question.

        • M

          The most intelligent of us stop to ponder on occasion, questions presented to us. I suppose in light of the current environment, she should be given credit for being able to form a coherent response without the benefit of a teleprompter or someone in her ear essentially answering for her.

          Never discredit those that actually think before they speak. There are a number of excellent reasons why one would take the time to consider his or her choice of words, and audience.

      • Bob Wire

        Hmmm? with that thought, I just went over Jan Brewer’s Bio.

        While I see little that prepares her for the office, her achievements surly shines brighter and has more depth the Ms Palin.

        Ms. Drinkwine/Brewer is a political animal but little has prepared her for the “world stage” and at 66 I say she is late for trying.

        It’s her state attorney general you should give credit you bestow her.

        This misapplication of credit and blame is far too common.

        I will confess her political achievements were greater then 43 when he was governor but 43 should not never been a GOP candidate either.

        Why can’t the GOP offer someone all American’s might consider vote for?

        • M

    1. I only bothered to read the first few comments – saw it was morphing away from the topic and decided to just blow off the rest – quite a few of which I am sure ARE probably quite interesting (or not).

    2. The REASON these Names were pushed to the top of the List .. is due to WHO is in control of the Media, to begin with. Not everyone comes to PersonalLibertyDOTcom to find themselves, or cause themselves to question the world around them. I refer people here, all the time. But, it takes fortitude (or idiocy in some cases) to come here and to then STAY here.

    3. As stated previously – whoownsthenews.com can and does put the pieces of Media Propaganda together for you – it even keeps you updated as to what is about to occur in the near future. Once you LEARN to see THE BIG PICTURE (MAX IGAN), then intel such as a silly website like this one, begin to gain more & more credibility with each passing event.

    4. What you will NOT be seeing any time in the near future … are the names of those who CONTROL the names that “are” on that List. Names like Rockefeller, Rothschild, Windsor, etc., etc. … will never show up on that List except to nudge you in a certain direction. The reason you see SOROS in the news so much, especially on FOXNEWS, is that he is an Agent of the Rothschilds… as is Julian Assange. The Wiki-Leaks Episode has certainly cemented Julian’s belief system in the NWO – that much I can tell as a plain ol’ outsider.

    NO – these names are listed as a reward for their hard efforts in the name of the NWO. Whether they are “allowed” to exist into the final stage of that Albert Pike Plan, remains to be seen. I may not even be around. But I no longer live life (unknowingly) on my knees. And, I am informing everyone who has courage to listen.

    This Reward System is nothing more than Decoy Conversation.

    Time to move on!

    it’s bad enough claiming barry as the man of the year, but, mandela!
    where did they take this poll in the outskirts of cape town. neither one of these guys could rate a vote for anything except as a fraud and terrorist of the worst kind, remember the necklace was invented by mandela, where they place a tire soaked with gas around their victims and set it off leaving them burning to death, however, the media tip toes around that one, after all those he burnt up were anti-communist.
    barry could win the award as the fraud of the century and a master of the tele-prompter.

    • Vigilant

      Can there be any doubt that the African-American vote went to Mandella? Nobody else even remembers him.

      Note to the vicious left: this is not a race card, it’s an observation, the truth of which would most certainly be borne out by Gallup if they have the figures.

He continues to fight for our freedom on a daily basis through the Foundation For Moral law by taking on many of the legal challenges throughout the nation. He was recently in IOWA TAKING ON LIBERAL JUDGES AND THEY ALL LOST THEIR ELECTIONS. He gave up his job as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme when given the choice to quit acknowledging God, or keep his job.. I would suggest you hear him for yourself. Henry

  • http://na. Robert Bradfield

    Hi it is that South African again. I have been following the discussion about South Africa with interest. We just had the World Cup played in South Africa and I want to draw an analogy with this event. at each of the matches there were several thousand spectators watching the games and millions more that watched by television. How many of all these millions we shouting advice to the players on the field? I would expect many but who played the game – the two teams, they had to make the decisions in the moment. Apartheid never was keeping people apart, separate, by hate, it was to assist each group to achieve their own goals within their abilities. Separatism is acknowledged through out the world, groups fight for the acknowledgment of their own uniqueness. Everyone should be aware that being black does not mean sameness. The Zulu-speaking nation is different from the Xhosa-speaking nation is different from the English-speaking nation and so forth. I believe that that was also true for the indigenous people of America, but instead of trying to eliminate our indigenous nations, as I believe happened in the US in the 1800′s our forefathers tried to bring the biblical message of salvation by Jesus Christ to our black populations. Concurring nations to expand a country has been used for many thousands of years.

    In our case, the Afrikaans speaking whites, with a drive to be self governing and trying to move away from an overbearing British government moved into the hinterland of what is now known as South Africa. Large sections of this was devoid of people and they settled there. There were confrontations between black and white then, but that is also true for American history, whites and, what we know as Red Indians, took place many times. That was due to the expansion of white settlers into traditionally Indian land. Are we any different? I have very little knowledge of American history, but if have to believe what is shown on television, there was a wholesale removal from Indians from their land and many died in so-called reservations. If I am wrong then I apologize, but that is the message that I got from the media and so the media also showed what was going on in South Africa.

    Was apartheid, which did not mean forcing people to be apart because of whites hating the blacks, wrong? To answer this we need to understand that black people are not one homogeneous people, the Zulu-speaking nation is different from the Xhosa-speaking nation is different from the English-speaking nation and so forth. Each of these groups are numerically a minority. To separate each of these groups allowed them protection from each other for their own safety, to develop their own cultures and histories without the domination of any other group. Is that wrong? I do not think that is wrong because there are many minorities that are asking this from their majority governments.

    As in the rest of Africa the so-called struggle for freedom concerns power and retaining power because power means wealth. In the recent past we have the Ivory Coast where there is a struggle for power, in Zimbabwe the same is happening and not so long ago it occurred in Kenya and have you forgotten what happened in Rwanda? People get killed for power, not for any other reason than that.

    In 1994, with the ANC being elected into power the biggest redistribution of wealth took place, all the state assets were transferred to the new government, that is what happens when a new government takes office. (The government is then a trustee of these assets for the good of all the citizens of the country.) Has this happened not that we as South Africans can see, we had a public health system that was functioning reasonably well now it does not, we had a good and functioning transport system, now the roads are deteriorating at an alarming rate, public transport, both by rail and road is falling apart, municipal services which always worked well are now in trouble and most of the protests in black townships concerns the lack of services such as water, sewerage, non-existing roads, nepotism and whatever else one can think of.

    If this is the result of the struggle Nelson Mandela is known for in America then I must pity South Africa. If it is to achieve the vote and democracy then I have bad news for all. In a any country that profess to be governed by the “people” forgets that democracy is about 10 seconds long. It is the time it takes to make a little cross on a ballot paper for whoever you vote for thereafter you are governed by a minority, in your case the Congress and the Senate, and in our case by Parliament and a Council of Provinces.

    Has anything changed is South Africa – Oh yes! We have become crime ridden, people get murdered, both white and black. Do women get raped, yes, both white and black. Do we have an increase in the child abuse, yes, both white and black. Do people lose their jobs, yes, both white and black (officially we have an unemployment rate of more than 25%, unofficially more than 40%). Do we have farm attacks and murder, yes, both white and black and so you can think of any criminal activity and it will affect both white and black. Has it increased in the past 16 years, Oh yes. Who are the criminals, both white and black. Do I want to be associated with then and be portrayed as one of them, of course not although I am white. Can I therefore ask that people making statements about the past of South Africa that they at least research the issue and not make fleeting statements based on media perceptions or history books that were written in the time before 1994, George Orwell’s 1984 comes to mind.

    I am still proud to be a South African, I was born here and have no other country that I can go to, I am one of the players in team South Africa and have to work with whatever is available for me. As you often say: “God bless America” my prayer also is: “God bless South Africa”.

    • Jeremy Leochner

      Chuck I mean no disrespect but Apartheid was real. Black people in South Africa were forced to carry special id badges which White South Africans did not have to carry. There were signs which stated Whites Only on bathrooms and other public facilities. And all the while the government of South Africa was controlled by a White English stranglehold. I know this from the lists of those in charge of the government of South Africa at the time which are part of public record, footage from the time of the discrimination and actual testimony also on film which is part of public record talking about Apartheid and defending and opposing it. If terrible things have happened to South Africa since I am all for doing what needs to be done to help them. But please for the sake of argument understand Apartheid was real, it wasn’t a political tool. And that also goes for those issues you mentioned at the end of your post. The reason they have a large following is the issues are real and people feel strongly about them.

      • http://na. Robert Bradfield

        Jeremy, I am that South African. I never said that apartheid was not practiced in South Africa. During the apartheid era it was a numerically small group of white taxpayers that funded education, health services, financed infrastructure investment, invested in businesses, tried to increase efficiency in production, whether it was in manufacturing, mining, agriculture or the service industries. (At that point blacks did not pay any tax.)

        Blacks did not have the vote, but at the same time most were employed even in lowly positions and there was a coexistence based on respect between “Baas”, derived from boss, and the black employees. The same happened to white South Africans, especially before the mentioned war, when white people were also employed by English and Jewish business owners and your employer had to be addressed as “Meneer” – Mister and you filled a subservient position.

        Before 1948, when the National Party under Dr D F Malan took power, Afrikaans speaking people had very little control over the economy. The National Party promised and brought them into the economic system. It was then that companies under Afrikaans leaders were started. Before this the “Afrikaners” were the labourers in the mines, the police constables that had to sort out English controlled companies’ problems with their black labourers and the unemployed. After the 2nd World War these were the people that supported the National Party because the Party promised a new beginning for them. Apartheid was introduced to ensure the existence of the National Party not the existence of white people. As in any system, the process developed a life of its own after a while, and it was government that were employing measures to try and retain their seats of power. The Apartheid System did put up signs such as “whites only” but it also provided the same services for black people. The Apartheid System did require black people to carry a pass at all time, the purpose of which were to limit the number of black people that would compete for the available jobs in cities and also to not strain the existing infrastructure beyond its carrying capacity, one could call it a process of social engineering.

        Dr Verwoerd did say that we should provide a lesser education to black kids to ensure a labour force for South Africa’s future. Which at hind sight was a bad thing to say, but hind sight is perfect vision. At that point, 1962/63, it was about 15 years after the National Party took power, not even one generation of people after 1948 passed. People were still very aware of the struggle for economic empowerment and of course this was very popular in the white community. It was also during the late 1950′s that the Uhurhu, the freedom from colonialism, movement started in Africa and many atrocities took place in Africa. In the Belgian Congo, today’s DRC, the violent take over of power caused the wholesale slaughter of priests and nuns and many whites who had lived their whole lives in the Congo. This process continued in about every other country in Africa, the killing of whites and blacks that did not support the leaders in power. This had an effect on South African whites, “if a black government would take over then we would all be killed in the same way.

        This lead to the formation of a defense force of note. Young white males were drafted into the defense force and trained in conventional and unconventional warfare and because of sanctions it also lead to the creation of a weapons industry. There were enough places in Southern Africa where they could hone their skills in warfare. During the 60′s the ANC were banned and became militant. As with any other state any person seeking to overthrow the government of the time, by force, is seen as a renegade and often killed. Thus the war for South Africa depended on a white government, with highly trained troops, and the perception of a black “mass” with killing of white people on their brains (see the previous paragraph). Where it concerns survival there is nothing fair in war, and many atrocities took place on both sides of the conflict. Indoctrination took place on both sides of the fence and distrust is still rampant in all relationships, one might define it as racism – I define it as a deep seated fear of both groups for each other.

        Am I defending the past, of course not, but one has to take all available information into consideration before judging the any of the groups in any conflict, whether it is a conflict between groups such as whites and blacks, whites and whites or blacks and blacks. We need to investigate history to learn from it, not to be condemned for it. Do you have conflict in the US, of course you do, just read some of the posts about your President. Do we have conflict in South Africa, of course we do but we hope to resolve it through negotiation and applying the principles of love your neighbour as we love ourselves.

        • Claire

          Robert Bradfield: Your posts were very interesting and enlightening. Every country has their share of problems, some worse than others, some the same. What we all need is good honest government that will listen to the people, not to the ones that continously wreak havoc. We will continue to have troubles when there are people in government that only care about themselves. I don’t have the answer to all of these problems, nor do I have a solution other than to do the best I can when voting. I can only hope and pray your country and ours will become free of the wrongdoers.
          I want to ask you–is it true that the government is wanting to build a road through the center of the Serengeti to get to the ore mines? I read this, and I thought how tragic for the beauty of this park and for the wildlife.

          • http://na. Robert Bradfield

            Claire, Many years ago, the late 1800′s we had a British Imperialist in South Africa, Cecil John Rhodes. His dream was to build a railroad from the Cape to Cairo. This failed when he died in, I think early 1900. With the new push for a Union of Africa States, I would not be surprised if a road and/or a rail link is planned. Because of the inefficiencies of African governments I would imagine that it will take a while before this takes place. Be prepared to voice your abhorrence once such a decision is made. Have a pleasant and prosperous 2011.

          • Claire

            Robert Bradfield–Thank you for the courtesy of your reply. I love the Serengeti and I certainly will voice my disaproval although it will no doubt fall on deaf ears. If I were an extremely powerful person, I would make my voice heard throughout America and Africa. I would use all the power I could to put a stop to the needless devastation, the corruption, and greed of government that wants to consume America, Africa, and other countries. I would go after the wrongdoers.

    south africa faced the same problem we are having with the illegals here. people from all over africa came to the south, the communist agitators with the help of people like mandella supported the uprising and used aparthied as their fight word, aparthied was put in place back in the 1800′s by the british govt. to separate the tribes from fighting each other. the liberals in this country, used the term as a political tool and people fell for it without realizing what aparthied meant. most of what you say about the signs and such were probably true, however, you have to realize these blacks moving into the south were right out of the jungle and had a complete different culture than the whites living there. so i could understand their wanting to separate themselves. the communist have destroyed south africa and rhodesia both countries were self sufficient and prosperous, now they are a crime ridden ghetto for the most part. thank you, bleeding hearts. america is well on her way to fall prey to the same politics.

    • Jeremy Leochner

      But Chuck Apartheid made no distinction between Blacks from outside South Africa who were communist, those who weren’t and those already living in South Africa some of whom had lived there for centuries or at least for generations. The division was strictly whites and blacks. No distinguishing politics, just pure basic racism. I believe you on the state of South Africa now. I believe it needs help and if communism is their government I personally agree with you that it should be changed. But just know chuck as to the politics of our country. I disagree with aspects of this law that I think are too extreme. But certain aspects of the Arizona law involve giving harsh punishments to illegal immigrants who commit further crimes upon entering the United States. I wholeheartdly agree with those aspects, I want it ammended not abandoned. Basically I dont want to put a sign at the border that says come on in, but I worry if these types of laws go into effect there will instead be a sign all along the entire border even at the border crossings saying no one welcome.

        when the whites settled south africa there were only a few bushmen living there and these were mostly nomadic. when the whites made so. africa prosperous it was like a magnate, drawing in people from every direction.the whites didn’t force the africans into slavery they came there on their own free will. if you haven’t read the history of south africa and can find a book that hasn’t been revised, you might have a different opinion. i met several families from cape town who left when mandella forced them out of business and their story is a little different than what the liberal media in this country reported. we should take heed and close our borders to all immigration and force the illegals back to the carribean and latin america before we lose this country.

        bradfield sounds like a liberal. i don’t live there, however, i have read quite a few books on that country and do know two families that were forced to leave there when mandela and the communist anc took over and they don’t have the rosy “can’t we all get along attitude” or we “shall overcome”.

    edee, I just need to know what rez that you are out of, for a address. If it is true as you claim, that you are a Indian. Is it edde idoit care of Blanket Butt Trail, Hardin Mt, or Fat Puppy Diner, Pine Ridge SD, or is it Deadass Ledge on Government Way, Sandstone AZ. I’m sure it will get to you where ever it goes. I just remember when your idol, communist George McGovern, carried all the reservations, because of the free feasting and barley pop. So your undying love for the muslim marxist Onumnutts isn’t surprising.

    I have been polled and surveyd so many times it becomes rather bothersome.I had asked how my name got on their list or is it just a random call.The caller said no that they do extensive background checks to make sure you are an American first,have a means of self support(working) a registered voter and no signs af mental instability.So if you have never been polled there may be a good reason.

    Obama is a man of ironies!

    1.) He is smart enough to know that the Maxist and radical Islam agenda is no good for the country, the people, or the economy. It does not improve quality of life for people here our around the world. Yet he holds on to those failed systems. Not smart at all.

    2.) He is wasting his God given opportunity as president with failed Markist and Islamic ideologies, instead of making the real positive changes that he talked about before he got elected.

    • JC

      That’s because he is a Globalist Meat Puppet.

    • James

      GetSense, You said President Obama is ignorant about Marxism and is wasting his time pursuing its failed policies. You are assuming our president doesn’t know that. I would rather assume that he does know where it will lead (total control over the economy) and subjection of the people to government control. That’s was Karl Marx’s dream.

    Jeffh If I wanted to know more about professionalism you sure wouldn’t be my source.I remember in one of your previous post where you were a dismal bankrupt failure and had to move in with a man you say is your brother.Your 61 now this was two years ago and I wouldn’t consider you to be to successful.Wishing you susuccess in the new year.Happy New Year

    • JeffH

      jopa, in typical liberal you skew the facts to suit your needs, whatever that may be…never was bankrupt and what does my success have to do with professionalism? Sharing a house with a brother or anyone else for that matter has no bearing on anything, especially professionalism. Dismal failure? Just like a liberal loon you try to attack someones person of which you have no personal or intimate knowledge or insight of.

      The only failure here is your unfounded attack.

    I think most Americans are clueless about who these people are. When the Republicans are in power, and do something the people don’t like, they vote for Democrats. And when the Democrats are in power, and pass legislation they don’t like, they vote for Republicans. The 2008 election of Obama is an example of the former, and the 2010 mid-term election is an example of the latter. I’m more convinced than ever, that the real powers that be, don’t care which party is in power.

    I serious doubt any Gallup Poll would reflect the views and sentiments of Fox News junkies and the many far right leaning arms of this alleged “conservative” movement that exist in north America today. As they tend to see anything “not them”, “doesn’t share their views” as either Marxist enemies, socialist, ignorant, misinformed, thieves, lazy, communist, tree huggers and pinko’s, insisting the world would be a better place if we might all be like them and see the world as they see it.

    As long as this movement holds on to some notion of representing a “Majority”, there will always be this “disconnect” and a huge divide between them and the rest of the world.

    “Gallup Poll”

    The Gallup Poll is the division of Gallup that regularly conducts public opinion polls in more than 140 countries around the world. Gallup Polls are often referenced in the mass media as a reliable and objective measure of public opinion. Gallup Poll results, analysis, and videos are published daily on Gallup.com in the form of data-driven news.

    Historically, the Gallup Poll has measured and tracked the public’s attitudes concerning virtually every political, social, and economic issue of the day, including highly sensitive or controversial subjects. In 2005, Gallup began its World Poll, which continually surveys citizens in more than 140 countries, representing 95% of the world’s adult population. General and regional-specific questions, developed in collaboration with the world’s leading behavioral economists, are organized into powerful indexes and topic areas that correlate with real-world outcomes.

    Gallup Polls are best known for their accuracy in predicting the outcome of United States presidential elections. A notable exception is the 1948 Thomas Dewey-Harry S. Truman election, where nearly all pollsters predicted a Dewey victory. This is largely attributed to the polling methods and technology available at the time in comparison to today. The Gallup Poll also inaccurately projected a slim victory by Gerald Ford in 1976, where he lost to Jimmy Carter by a small margin.

    For the 2008 U.S. presidential election, Gallup was rated 17th out of 23 polling organizations in terms of the precision of its pre-election polls relative to the final results.[3]

    In 2008, Gallup interviewed no fewer than 1,000 U.S. adults each day, providing the most watched daily tracking poll of the race between John McCain and Barack Obama. Gallup publishes the results of its tracking survey in a three-day rolling average on Gallup.com.

    Gallup conducts 1,000 interviews every day 350 days out of the year, among both land-line and cell phones across the U.S. for its health and well-being survey.

      “For the 2008 U.S. presidential election, Gallup was rated 17th out of 23 polling organizations in terms of the precision of its pre-election polls relative to the final results.”

      Nice copy and paste job, but which Poll was ranked #1?

      You make a pretty good case for NOT following the Gallup Poll, since apparently “16 of the top 23″ Pollsters did a better job…

  • Papa

    Who would make the perfect President/Vice President pairing for 2012? Sarah Palin for President with Ron Paul for Vice President and Chief Adviser! Palin has all the charisma and presence of Ronald Reagan when speaking while Ron Paul is totally honest and a constitutional scholar with unquestionable credentials, and Palin has enough common sense to seek his advise. Who better could we ask for to represent our new conservative movement? As an added incentive, they BOTH scare the pants off the liberal progressives in BOTH parties!!!

    Man of the Year? Julian Assange, hands down.

    People in the White Estates of Amerika HATE the truth—this is why so many view Assange in a negative light. Ignorant Amerikans like to think that our mercenary troops do not shoot at civilians for sport (which they do, quite often) or that they rape young schoolgirls and then kill them and their families (which are troops do with regularity). Too bad.

    The truth stings when it is unfavorable to your world view. Again, too bad. Wikileaks is an important conduit for thinking people to make accurate assessments of the world we share.

    You Fright Wing Neo-conartists are clueless.

    Oh, and death to Amerika.

    What would be the criteria for “Most admired man in America?” Was this just a list of names Gallop came up with on their own? what was the purpose of such a poll? How many people responded to the poll? Polls are designed to solicit a certain result.

    As to Rep Ron Paul, I like him very much but he has run for President several times before and was soundly rejected. Why consider him again? The same goes for the other MSM manipulative picks.
