What does she hope to accomplish with this?

Read one while you're on the road, and if you see Cain, hand him one too...

I can't get excited about any of the current crop. But if Huck enters, I'm there.

Really? His recent lying and flip flopping doesn't turn you off?

I find him to be an obvious hypocrite, but he does have a down home likability...

Huckabee truly makes my skin crawl like no other (major) US politician.

Huckabee has said he's not running. he's making too much money with his show on Fox.

Don't blink or you'll miss the flip-flops.

SP won't get much media attention because it's wall to wall coverage of the tornadoes. She's really going to be ticked off at those tornadoes.

But I'm so glad she's made herself available to teach all the people who live where all that history actually happened. Because of course we're all still so ignorant. What would we do without her.

If she tried to hand me a copy of the Constitution I'd tell her to stick it

He's a lot more respectable than a guy who *voted twice against a bill requiring doctors to attempt to save the lives of newborn babies, and on a third occasion, prevented it from even being voted on.

But then again, so are all the GOP candidates, including Palin.

*He later said he voted against it because there was no clause that stated that the bill was "not to be construed to protect anything but babies born alive". But the fact is that that the bill did indeed include that clause.

Well instead of answering a question you turned it around to "Republicans are more respectable than Democrats because they are pro-life." That's not substance.



And on top of that you still don't understand the nuance behind that bill you speak of...

Before you wrote this, I changed the "no substance" comment.

Oh, the nuance of the bill. Please explain the nuance of the bill to me; maybe you will convince me to give Obama a pass for voting against the bill that requires doctors to try to save the lives of newborn babies.

If you think my point was that "Republicans are more respectable than Democrats because they are pro-life", then you don't understand something that is far more blatant than nuance. I'm not talking about pro-choice vs. pro-life. That bill was not about unborn babies; it was specifically about babies that had been born alive after a botched abortion. Even the most radical pro-choicers would admit that a newborn baby is a living breathing human being.

The kind of person I don't respect is someone who would vote against requiring doctors to try to save the life of a newborn baby.

It's not the time or place, we talked about this bill years ago. I'm not going to let you turn yet another thread into this topic.

Yet you are for those that have repeatedly voted for denying medical rights to certain groups, those that want to force women to carry to term if raped or life is in danger, and those that call themselves Christian yet want money and privelage to dictate if they get medical care.
