Can you list any politicians who aren't? A non-partisan unbiased list.

How about President Bush? I'm sure he's aware how unpopular the war is, but that isnt affecting how is he handling it. He feels as strongly about it as he did in March 2003, even as the support has plummeted.

How about all the politicans (on both sides) who take positions that are in minority compared to the rest of America, whether it be with abortion or gay rights, etc.

Anyway, though, I'm not talking about other politicians. I'm talking about Mr. Obama wanting to be the president, and he failed to take a stand and display any sort of opinion.

Oh yeah? There's documented evidence that he catered to the far Christian right and wouldn't say certain things in order to keep their vote.

Fair enough. It might have been a stupid question. But it was also an easy question. Whether he would have said yes or no, it would have provided insight into his character and thinking process, but he didnt answer it, so my (and many others') only conclusion is that he failed miserably to show any sort of opinion.

In light of everything, that makes him an idiot.

An absolute refusal to compromise is not the sign of a principled man, it's the sign of a child.

It's not an easy question. Not all the facts are present, how does that make it an easy question?

You and many others are in the dark if you are using that question to gauge anything about this man.

Or in this case a prideful(as in the 7 deadly sins way) man.

So I was just clicking around and stumbled onto Mitt Romney's campaign blog, so named "Five Brothers" for his 5 sons who we have recently learned serve their country by working for his campaign instead of in the Army. It's like Mitt Romney for Pres: Army of Five or something. Anyway to post a comment on the blog, you must answer a basic arithmetic problem...it's like an MCAS 4th grade exam, or some sort of minimum-IQ-filter, or something, anyway, it's hilarious and there are probably better jokes to be made about it.

e.g.

I think it is a random math equation

so a bot can not spam the site to death


there is a local (Newport Beach) message board I used that got spammed with links to gambling and sex sites, until they put in a random question.

(The blurry, distorted combination of letters and numbers that merchant sites use for security would be overkill).

Well I knew that immediately but I still think it's weird and ripe for being made fun of, much like everything else Mitt Romney does and says.
