LOL...Though I do believe it would be polisci.

Exactly. Obama was the most
Lib senator we'd ever had. But
when he ran for president,
he morphed into Mr Centrist,
full of banal rhetoric and bland
boring sentences. His speeches
went on and on about nothing,
but he looked good giving
them and the sheeple voted
him in. Worst president in the
last 100 years.


False

"On votes where President Bush indicated his position, CQ found Obama supported the Republican president 40 percent of the time in 2007, which put Obama in the middle of the pack for Democrats. He supported Bush 49 percent the previous year."

That is a common talking point in the conservative media. And, it had been going around for years, but it is simply a talking point conservative media loves. He is actually pretty moderate.

Study: Obama Most Liberal Senator Last Year

Obama was the most Lib senator in
2007, the last full year before he
ran for president.

(CNN) - Barack Obama has demonstrated his appeal to independent voters and even some Republicans as he campaigns for president, though a just-released study from the National Journal indicates the Illinois Democrat was the most liberal senator in 2007.

NYS now allows undocumented immigrants to apply for a drivers license.

In order to shield these people from Federal Law enforcement, New York refuses to share DMV records with Federal agencies. It is the only State that does that.

One of the problems caused by this policy is at the Canadian and Mexican borders where license plate readers are installed to read every license plate at the crossings. The information is automatically displayed for the border officer to see. The drivers license can also be scanned.

When a NYS registered vehicle arrives at a crossing, the screen is blank. There is no way for the Officer to determine whether there is an alarm issued for the vehicle, of whether the driver is wanted by the police, because NYS also refuses to share criminal records with the Customs and Border Protection.

The policy also inhibits the ability of Homeland Security and the CPB, to confirm whether an individual applying for the Trusted Traveler program, meets program eligibility requirements.

Criminals need not apply.

In response, Homeland Security has suspended Global Entry to all residents of NYS. We can no longer apply for PreCheck, Nexis, Global Entry and Clear. If a NYS resident already has it, and it expires, they cannot reapply.

Cuomo refuses to change the policy. His response is “We will deal with each case on an individual basis”.

Expect to see longer lines at the borders and airports because of Cuomo.

And Cuomo will keep getting re-elected as long as he wants the job.

It's okay, exaggeration and goal shifting is only a negative talking point if he perceives somebody else performing it....

Borrowing from Rob Schneider

New York voters would vote for a bowl of s**t if it had a 'D' next to it.
