heh. i was on a facebook news page earlier today, and even though someone advocated shooting the president, someone said "lot of liberals here".

i was only commenting because the other comments hurt my brain through idiocy relating to aviation procedures, but jeeeesus.

Frankly at this point Obama would have to fuck a sheep to not get elected.

The religious right still has a hold here in the States. A small one, perhaps, but it still exists, and we still have people who think your belief systems are an automatic indicator of whether or not you'll be a good president.
One of those people unfortunately writes for one of (maybe it is the biggest, not sure) the biggest daily metropolitan newspapers in Australia.

Presidential hopefuls marry family with politics | Daily Telegraph Miranda Devine Blog

She seems to be suggesting that a lengthy, heterosexual marriage is the only quality worth having if you're a prospective president.

So, and again excuse my total ignorance on the subject... but are you all hoping that the republican party eventually ceases to exist? Or becomes such a minority that a democratic party will always win? Or are there republican politicians out there capable of doing the job who won't send the country back to the "good old days"?

That, or...

1) Be the president in office when gas hits five bucks a gallon
2) Be the president in office when gas hits five bucks a gallon, and also be the same president who rejected the pipeline.

No, BVS. He's an American. Why do you repeatedly perpetuate this smear? It's the same as Irvine repeatedly referring to him as "boy." You guys are the only ones in here doing that.

2861, does the GOP still not have members or candidates perpetuating this or at least hinting to it? Be honest.

How high did gas get under Bush? And how high were the predictions? You either have a very short memory, or you're not being honest with yourself.

what rational thinking person would vote for Mitt Romney, the phoniest person in the history of politics (and that's quite the accomplishment), or Rick Santorum, a living, breathing, walking pile of shit?

i'm not saying Obama should be reelected. Honestly I think he's done a mediocre job at best. All the republicans would have to do is put somebody with a pulse up for election and they'd win... and they can't even do that. It's like 2004 all over again, only now the shoe is on the other foot.

Obama will win reelection not because he's just been so super duper, rather simply because the other party is to inept to nominating a viable candidate. Just like Bush in '04.

But I am slowly learning that this is not the case in the States. It's quite scary to know that some of these GOP nominees have such large followings and could perceivably win the next election.
The one thing I'll say is that, right now, it's the primary season, so these candidates are pitching to the right-of-the-right here in the US. Even though the base has gotten increasingly conservative (while much of the rest of the country lives in the 21st century), a lot of this rhetoric will soon be dropped When they select a candidate and he goes up against Obama the candidates will fight for the middle and many of these views will be drastically moderated.

Or I could be wrong, and the GOP could put up Santorum and lose in a colossal landslide.

Just remember that what you're hearing is a message pitched for maybe 20% of the overall electorate.

So now it's the president that controls the global oil prices?

And you think that accepting the pipeline would drop global price of oil so that Americans don't pay five bucks a gallon?

What alternate economic universe is this?

Funny thing is more and more Tea Party members are standing against the pipeline. Tea Parties at the state level(the ones that would be effected) are going to court over it.

So it seems the only people who still want it are the ones that haven't done their homework.

Reading the past weeks posts here I have to ask.

Is some sort of prize being awarded for the most derogatory ad hominem attack while completely avoiding substantive discussion?
