    When you look at how right wingers have rewritten current history, what will it look like in a hundred years.

    Remember such Republican nuggets as, "Paul Revere rode to warn the British".

    Or "The founding fathers (who owned thousands of slaves) were against slavery".

    Already, you have some right wingers blaming the economic meltdown on Obama. Or blaming 9/11 on Clinton. Or credit the Republicans with getting Bin Laden.

    How will they spin Enron or Katrina after 100 years? Or Iraq? Will they say Democrats led us into Iraq?

    They can't even say the word "derivative", but blame the economic meltdown on Barney Frank at a time when Republicans held both houses and the presidency. And we know what Republicans think about gays.

    Too bad I won't be here, but if I could see one thing, it would be a "Texas History Book" from 2111.

    Right wingers never claimed Paul Revere rode to warn the British. For one he was headed the wrong way to do so. He rode to warn the Colonials. He was stopped before reaching his final destination though.

    Some of the Founding Fathers WERE against Slavery. But then you must have missed that part in History class, assuming you went to school before the Liberals got rid of History in all but High School.

    But more importantly ACCORDING to you and your buddies the right is doomed because it is all white and has bad policies. So according to you they won't be around in 100 years, according to your claims.

    He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.

    Sarah Palin - "Paul Revere Warned...The British?" - Forbes

    Owning slaves was "like having a large bank account," says Wiencek, author of An Imperfect God: George Washington, His Slaves, and the Creation of America. The southern states would not have signed the Constitution without protections for the "peculiar institution," including a clause that counted a slave as three fifths of a man for purposes of congressional representation.

    Remind us again how all the misspeaks by Obama were just slips of the tongue while you claim a single person is the ENTIRE right wing.

    As to your second story, OF COURSE the South was opposed to eliminating Slavery, BUT not EVERY founding father was from the South, further the original text clearly means no slavery. The South forced the acceptance or no Constitution.

    Geez Gunny. You need to go back to Paul Revere? How about VietNam? The left wing media wrote the history book on Nam and the cowardly draft dodgers who Carter pardoned came back from Canada to teach generations of kids that Nam was Nixon's fault. How many people ever heard of the fraudulant Gulf of Tonkin incident that allowed LBJ to send Troops to VietNam? LBJ set the rules so that we would win every battle and lose the War. He quit just when the US needed leadership and gave the VC time to reorganize. Did "give 'em Hell Harry need to drop two A-B0mbs on Japan? How many people ever heard the "rest of the story" that Truman refused to negotiate with Japan? The liberals wrote the history books and you can count on them to spin the story to protect democrats. Both Harry Truman and MacArthur received a ticker tape parade after Korea even though Truman was too timid to face down the General until it was too late and MacArthur's ego forced Americans to invade North Korea even though the Chinese warned the Troops not to come close to there border of the Yalu river. Liberal history won't dare suggest that MacArthur made an incredible mistake and perhaps the General was suffering from mental problems when he orded exhausted ill-equipped Troops to "liberate the entire peninsula" when winter was coming to the coldest area in the world. Thanks to a timid president and a potentially brain damaged egomaniac the Korean war lasted three years and ended right where it started with the loss of 38,000 American lives. Nobody needs to rewrite history. The libs just need to tell the truth for a change.

    They can't. People wouldn't support them.

    You think "any" degree means you are "educated"? Then why are so many right wing colleges below tier four?

    Can I pick an idiot on the left, say Joe Biden, and use him to point out how lefties are all stupid?

    In 1774 the first anti slavery foundation in America was founded by Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Rush. John Jay founded one in New York, and William Livingston, when he was governor of New Jersey, wrote to them asking to join.

    The economic meltdown began in 2008. At that point in time Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House and Harry Reid was Senate majority leader, I am pretty sure neither of them have ever been a Republican.

    Talk about rewriting history.
