    cautioned Pat Buchanan { former presidential adviser } who worked in the
    Nixon White House. Adding ... " Well you know, what a tangled web we
    weave when first we practice to deceive ".I don't think Buchanan was
    referring to Lincoln yesterday on his 150th anniversary of the great
    and unforgettable Gettysburg Address.He's talking about Barack Obama,who
    won't be at Gettysburg today as one would have expected.
    Then again ... Obama talks a big game.But his words aren't as simple and

    conservative America -- there is the United States of America.
    There is not a black America and a white America and Latino
    America and Asian America -- there's the United States of America. "
    How easily and quickly a president could forget.Or did Obama forget.?
    Didn't sound like a bystander back then.
    - That Was Then,This Is Now - { 1985 } Where 2 juvenile delinquents
    find themselves growing apart, for one is growing up and the other
    is staying young and reckless.
    Our Country is growing apart as Obama enters a new juvenile stage of
