So close...

Gingrich does share Santorum's position on President Barack Obama, however. Gingrich said Obama's administration is "anti-religious."
...and yet so far.

I agree with this based on the reasons you put forth. I understand why you say that.

But at the same time, again, even though I know the chances of a Santorum or Gingrich victory are pretty well nil...I just still have that small fear in the back of my head.

Not that I wouldn't have that fear if Romney were the nominee. While I'm pretty well confident about Obama's re-election chances, I would also caution Democratic supporters to never ever get too cocky and think they don't need to worry anymore.

I'm assuming <> merged the 2004 Democratic ticket into one man, criticizing Kerry for Edwards' infidelity. Or maybe he just wanted an opportunity to paste in another Romney-approved campaign plug.

Throwing it out there: I don't like Romney. I don't trust him. I find his stances shaky, inconsistent and opportunistic. I would never vote for the man. With party lines an increasingly strong influence, Romney's current "stances" will be a non-factor in his decision-making process.

Your damn right Mitt is no John Kerry. A man that volunteered to go to Vietnam while so many others, from Dick Cheney to Bill Clinton, got deferrals or dodged the draft in some manner. A man that was decorated for his valor in that same military service, for outright saving a man's life. A man that came home and did everything he could to try and stop the useless deaths in southeast Asia. And then he was 'thanked' by the superpatriotic chickenhawks and faux armchair generals on the Right when he ran for President and got his character assassinated.

He and Mitt are both smart, successful, very rich, aloof, detached, privileged, boring...and all the rest of it. But only one of them is a true American hero and patriot that put his fucking money where his mouth is. When John Kerry was fighting for his country in Vietnam, Mitt Romney was at home with the silver spoon in his mouth. That doesn't mean Mitt Romney couldn't be a good President, maybe he could. But he is damn sure not John Kerry.

And that is the short and polite version of this post.

It's not really a dynamic model. It's the hyper-partisan political paradigm in America. And it's the same as it was when Reagan was President, although probably a little worse. And that is the very problem we are dealing with.

Not because America is ideologically miles apart.
But because we are always given two choices that are miles apart, so as to contrast and win elections - because that's all that matters to these jagoffs.

Imagine Mitt Romney supporting a tax increase. Now, you tell me how the 'old model' doesn't apply if that were the case and I'll demonstrate how it would. Here's a hint: the Norquist Lobby would tear him apart.

That probably won't happen, but if it did, Mitt would be savvy enough to not call it a tax increase but package or word it differently...

wait
watch
and
see.

It's sad that there is truth out there but he like Kennedy was -a philanderer.

It's not told of because 85% of the press corp leans left and most in this forum find that acceptable, most here are not after equilibrium, equanimity or accuracy in reporting or even wanting to know the character of left leaning candidates.

Repost: John Kerry's Divorce



More than a year-and-a-half ago I first posted about John Kerry's divorce, and as you can see from my top search word list it was a very popular topic for visitors. I doubt Kerry's past womanizing and gold-digging had much of an effect on the election, but there's no denying that people cared about the issue. Here's my original post.

I haven't seen this discussed anywhere else, but am I the only one who thinks it's significant that John Kerry couldn't remain faithful to his first wife? Some people like to make a big deal about the "sanctity of marriage" with regards to gay marriage, but isn't Mr. Kerry's divorce in 1988 (after six years of separation) relevant to the same issue? What's more, the circumstances aren't particularly flattering for Mr. Kerry.

Most people seem to think Mr. Kerry's carousing in the 1980s isn't important, but for most of the decade he was still married.

During the period the Kerrys were separated, for instance, the senator apparently felt little constrained by his marital vows. Gossip columns at the time linked him to Morgan Fairchild, Cornelia Guest and even President Reagan's liberal daughter, Patti Davis. An upcoming Boston Globe expose will reportedly feature details of the Massachusetts Democrat's 1980s affair with a 25-year-old British reporter.
According to a previous account offered by the paper, the fact that Kerry was still technically married till 1988 "reportedly came as a surprise to some of his frequent companions."

Most are consciously naive and give left leaning cheaters a pass as long as they support their pet issues-which speaks volumes.

Why are you always embarassed to site your sources?

Repost: John Kerry's Divorce

What a joke!

What speaks volumes is how easily you are manipulated.
