His convention last year was one of the most vitrolic and sickening political events I've ever seen, and he implicitly endorsed every speech given at that convention by not vetoing any of them. You think he didn't know the gist of what Giuliani and Palin were going to say there?
Have you seen any of the Democrats conventions and what they have said about the Republican opponent in the last 30 years? Just look at what Democrats have been saying about George Bush since he decided to run in 1999. Would you call that respectful?

Yes, of course, initially. BUT after that, next year, they cannot prove what you still have and what you may have spent, lost, given away, had stolen, etc. There is NO WAY to hang a certain income on you when it's only in jars and there is no paper trail.

But then it's no longer income, so of course you don't get taxed. You don't get taxed on how much you have, you get taxed on how much you make. So basically you're just saying you won't reinvest?

Not smart, but to each it's own.

The way I see it, if I reinvest, I'm going to lose more in taxes than I would make in interest, and there's always a chance the investments may fail and I'd lose everything. Jars are the best option for me, and yes I am serious. I don't trust the financial system. Anarchy!

Ah, diddums, bad Dems insulting the Prezznit, how dare they.

I'd call it far too bloody respectful, actually. Democrats largely allowed themselves to be cowed while Bush was in office, at least post 911. Within the Democrat party, during the 2002-2005 period, only people like Howard Dean and John Conyers were telling the truth about the Busch regime - and people like you called them far left kooks. Most of the most trenchant critiques of the Bush administration policies during that period came from within the Republican party - from people like Ron Paul, Lincoln Chaffe and Arlen Specter - and people like you called them terrorists.

Well, Howard Dean at least is actually to the right of some people in this forum. I'd vote for Howard Dean in two seconds over someone like Ron Paul who lives in the 18th century.

(AP)

BOISE, Idaho — An Idaho Republican gubernatorial hopeful insists he was only joking when he said he'd buy a license to hunt President Barack Obama.

Rex Rammell, a long-shot candidate slated to run against incumbent C.L. "Butch" Otter in the May 2010 GOP primary, made the comment at a Republican rally Tuesday in Twin Falls where talk turned to the state's planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag. The hunt is due to begin on Tuesday.

When an audience member shouted a question about "Obama tags," Rammell responded, "The Obama tags? We'd buy some of those."

Rammell told The Associated Press Thursday he sees no reason to apologize for the comment because it was just a joke.

"What I would say to all my Democrat Idahoans: Take a deep breath and relax," he said. "We're not going to go out and hunt Obama."

He also told the Times-News newspaper, "I would never support him being assassinated."

After Rammell's comment was published in the Times-News, he said one person sent him an e-mail indicating he would ask the FBI for an investigation.

Threatening the president can be a felony punishable by five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.


"I'm probably safe," Rammell said. "I'm not the one that started the whole thing."

Debbie Dujanovic Bertram, an FBI spokeswoman in Salt Lake City, said the agency couldn't comment on whether it was investigating or if it had received a complaint.

Democratic Party Chairman Keith Roark said Rammell comes from the far right of the GOP, but that's no excuse for his comment.

"Rex Rammell is pretty shrill, and I don't think he represents the mainstream of the Republican Party by any means," Roark said. "But I think the Republican Party in this state and elsewhere would be well served by making it clear those types of comments are very inappropriate."

Officials with the Idaho Republican Party in Boise didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Rammell, a former elk rancher and unsuccessful 2008 U.S. Senate candidate, gained exposure in 2006 when the state ordered domestic elk be shot after they escaped from his ranch near Rexburg.

Rammell isn't the first Rexburg resident who has drawn attention for making an anti-Obama comment. In November 2008, second- and third-grade students on a school bus there chanted "Assassinate Obama" after his election, prompting the mayor of this eastern Idaho town to publicly apologize.
