Mea Culpa from a Reformed Democrat
I'm embarrassed to admit that I voted for Obama in 2008. I ask myself now how I could be so foolish. I've concluded that it was some misguided effort to atone for my supposed sin of being born and reared in the South in the 50's and 60's, to prove that I was really a racist. I bet there are a lot of other white voters who did the same thing.
At the time I discounted his utter lack of any experience besides being a "community organizer," or in more direct language, a poverty pimp. I discounted the long, close association with the Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers, and the hateful, racist Jerimiah Wright. I laughed at the jokes about Sarah Palin, but guess what - she had more executive experience that Obama, and as dingy as she sometimes sounded, at least she was a patriot who loved America.
I thought the people who said that Obama was a radical leftist/Moslem/alien were nutty. I now believe they were right all along. How else to explain the fiascos in Syria and Benghazi, pulling out troops completely out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and radically downsizing the Navy. And one that no one even remembers: when the Iranian people tried to have their own version of the Arab Spring (I know Iranians are not Arab), Obama said nothing and did nothing while the mullahs' thugs murdered demonstrators in the streets and arrested and tortured them. Meanwhile, Obama helped overthrow one of our strongest, most loyal allies, President Mubarek in Egypt, who was replaced by a member of the Moslem Brotherhood.
And if it's treason or a violation of the secrecy laws for Snowden and that cross dressing pervert Bradley Manning (how the hell did he ever get in the Army?) to leak secrets to Julian Assange, how do Obama and Biden get away with blowing the Navy Seals' cover in the Bin Laden raid? That led directly to a platoon from Seal Team Six being set up and shot down in Afghanistan.
It is just as bad domestically. The Affordable Care Act a/k/a Obamacare is a socialist takeover of the health care innsurance industry. Of course the "conservative" chief justice John Roberts wrote the opinion that said it was constitutional. Obama's latest project is a homosexual employment rights act (see below). The Obama agenda is to weaken the U.S. internationally, and undermine our culture and society internally. The whole gay rights thing, especially when it involves the military, is designed to make this country an easier target.
I have made a solemn vow - I will never vote for a f-------- democrat again as long as I live.

Feds sued for $6.4 million by businessman who says he was unwittingly drawn into DEA informant’s murder
The U.S. government and a ranking Drug Enforcement Administration official here are being sued for up to $6.4 million over a wild shootout in which a commercial truck driver moonlighting as a secret informant was slain by gangsters in the proximity of as many as two dozen officers on a counter-narcotics task force .
The dead man’s former boss contends the DEA used his 18-wheeler in the 2011 government sting _ that played out in Harris County _ without permission; refused to repair the bullet-riddled truck after the shooting; and subjected him and his family to unwarranted retaliation by the Zetas cartel, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Houston.
