We've had The Great Emancipator, The Great Communicator, and now we've got The Great Waffler...waffling on Afhanistan, public option or co-ops, everything. President O is carrying his 'voting present' habits from the Illinois legislature into the White House. Hillary warned you. Oh yea, he signed the exec order to shut down Gitmo and there's no plan whatsoever to accomplish that.

'Neo-Condi' is racist.

You guys should've elected Dennis Kucinich. I abhor everything that he stands for, but he's honest as all hell.

No... it isn't.

Neoconservatism is a political philosophy (not a racial slur) that emerged in the United States of America, and which supports using American economic and military power to bring liberalism, democracy, and human rights to other countries.

If you're not one of the many conservatives I've argued with over whether or not the term "NeoCon" is a slur against Jewish people... then good for you.
