Uh, dude. He said he wasn't backing off the statement. So, yes, not only does he believe it, he has told people about his belief, this year.

I'm kind of jumping in here, but to me I understood it as he wouldn't retract the statement. I think that was the word used. In otherwords, he felt he was making the right statement at the time. I also could've sworn he said he wouldn't do that today.

That said, I'm not voting for him. (Nor do I think we should isolate AIDS patients.)

No, he said that if he said the same thing today, he'd probably "rephrase" it. That means he'd say the same thing with kinder, gentler words.

I can only hope that if this Huckabee guy actually manages to get himself nominated, that sensible Americans everywhere will snap fucking out of it and vote against him.

I'm really angry that the DeMoines Register excluded Kucinich from the Iowa debate. Everyone on my progressive listserver is angry and calling the newspaper. They're including a Republican who isn't even on the Iowa ballot, so it's a double standard. It's just not fair. This pisses me off.:censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:

I'm afraid that people won't vote for Hillary just because she's a woman and Obama just because he's black. Some people think Gore lost votes with a Jewish running mate. I never thought that much about it but they could be right.

He still does believe this? Horrors. I hope this keeps people from voting for him. This guy scares the hell out of me. Even Bush doesn't want to isolate AIDS patients.

but Huckabee has little else to offer. just a charming personality.

he's a total naif on foreign policy.

hence, the Dems rubbing their hands over an "easy kill."

I've done that.

Then how about keeping to that instead of stooping to just being plain rude. It makes your position look weaker if you have to resort to base name calling.

I hope so, too. I'm sure not going to cast a vote for the guy, I can tell you that much.

verte, I'm glad to see some people are calling and complaining about Kucinich being denied the chance to participate in the debate. You're right, given who they do allow, it really doesn't make any sense. It's not fair.

I said that in anger, thats all. Of course it is not a rational argument. If someone were to challenge my position and ask my why I think Huckabee is bad, and if I were to say that he is bad cause he's shitty. Then of course that wouldn't work. But I just said what I said in anger, it was not meant to be taken seriously. And a lot of my posts are actual arguments, it is not like I do this only.

Obama is the man! Check out his little joke at Hilary. :wink:

Fred Thompson is expected to drop out of the race in the next few days. His campaign site's forums are being shuttered, and there is a "major announcement" coming from the campaign in the next couple days.

Not suprised. I was suprised that anyone even thought he had a chance.
