    When you have conservatives openly protesting and openly fighting to get their voices heard against an increasingly concerted effort to silence them there is a REAL problem. The right does not normally protest in this manner in this country.

    I think people are beginning to wake up and see Obama for what he really is. Not everybody who is making all the noise is a Republican or a conservative. There are some Democrats in that mix too. America is getting tired of all the crap coming out of Washington these days and Congressmen who could care less what the folks back at home want. They are getting fed up and beginning to make their ire known to their representatives. Instead of being so condecending, it would be a good time for those Congressmen to pay attention to what is going on and listen to what the public really wants. Obama and crew are loosing popularity more and more everyday. They are aware of it and are running scared because they have been exposed for what they really are. I'm sure Obama is aware that he's going to be a one term President. Members of the Democratic Congress are aware of that too and they don't want to be thrown out with the bath water when their term is over too so you're going to see them turn away from Obama. The gigs over. Time for them to get serious if they want to keep their jobs.

    The last time the right protested this loudly was during the Civil Rights era

    Exactly. And it was pretty bad. How'd they do on that one, again?

    Seriously doubt Obama thinks he will only have one term.

    It is way too early to predict how popular and effective his first term will be.

    I am sure the Obamabots are already gearing up for his re-election

    In 1984, Ron Reagan ran on a position of "are you better off today than you were four years ago?" He took over from an unpopular president and the country was in economic ruin. By TRIPLING the deficit he was able to curb unemployment and reduce interest rates. He spent his way out of the recession.

    Obama will run on the same platform. He will remind us of the collapse of the stock market and housing industry and the skyrocketing unemployment. He will point to foreign policy and the conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan. If he has the country in worse shape than Jan 2008 he will lose. If we are better off, he will win by landslide again

    It wasn't the trippling of the Deficit dude it was the reducing of the tax rates.

    As for the racist claptrap you do know that a higher percentage of Republicans voted for the 64 civil rights act than Deomcrats and that through out the south and in many places in the Midwest for much of it's history the Democratic Party was pretty much a wholly owned subsidiary of the KKK.

    It was the Republican Eisenhower, who nationalized the Arkansas national guard when the Democrat Orville Faubas tried to use it to block integration of the Little Rock Public school System.
