This morning I'm watching the news with breakfast. The anchor lady is interviewing Obama. She says to him "do you ever feel like this is a popularity contest?"

No friggin horse crap. If this isn't a popularity contest then what is it? Leave it to the liberals to attempt to take competition out of a "popularity contest".

This morning I'm watching the news with breakfast.

Why would you want to ruin a perfectly good breakfast?

The most ridiculous thing is that these "candidates", every one of them, say all that crap with a smile and a straight face! I am convinced that they are ALL pathalogical liers, and such vote whores that they will say ANYTHING necessary to get in.

The second most ridiculous thing is Bill Clinton. I mean after all the BS he put this country through, how can that guy even show his face in public, much less stand up and talk like we should listen to that buffoon.

This reminds me of a line from a film I have seen on many occasions.

It was called "The Right Stuff"

The line was "Whos the best pilot you ever saw"
Asked of Gordon Cooper played by Dennis Quaid.

I guess the dumbest thing I ever heard was a Gun owner expressing their desire or intent to vote for a democrat.

Mitt Romney telling a small black child he likes her "BLING BLING", or not to much earlier saying "Who let the dogs out".

Even my wife was embarrassed for him.

Yeah, that was bad. Along the lines of Hillary changing the way she talked when speaking in front of a black audience in the south.

Don't know about you but the above could arguably be called racism

I agree with you. I brought the subject up because I was talking to a coworker who is black, and he opined that Hillary changing her manner of speaking due to the racial makeup of the audience she was addresing pissed him off

Kinda reminds me of when a reporter tries to use a spanish accent when ever they say a spanish name. Stupid and ill mannered but not done in a malicious way.

Now if she started talking in a southern accent and came out with gold teeth, stepped out of a 300C sittin on 22's eating fried chicken, that would have been racist.

Here is the dumbest thing I have ever heard:

"I am a conservative. I am voting for (McCain, Romney, Huckleberry, ect... take your pick)"

Ron Paul is the only conservative running. He actually believes in the constitution.

Thats all well and good for the primary. Bote your conscience to your hearts content. But what about the general? I dont know one signle conservative that would vote for McCain/Romney without holding their nose, but will do so to support the party and do what is necessary to prevent a Hillary Presidency which would be the abject downfall of this country. Same with Obama.

For me it was when Giuliani told Ron Paul during a debate that he had heard a lot of theories as to why the 911 hijackers flew planes into buildings, but never that it was because they were pissed at America for occupying their countries and meddling in their countries business.

She said that Obama and Clinton can not win in the General Election, since one is black and will alienate 1/2 the nation, and one is a woman and has 1/2 of the nation hating her (for many reasons).

The "expert's" solution: toss the primary results at the convention and...

Draft Joe Biden!

I remember Joe Biden. He lost the primary in 1988 and lost the primary in 2008. Why would anyone pick him!

Kinda reminds me of when a reporter tries to use a spanish accent when ever they say a spanish name.That always cracks me up too, to hear some white-bread reporters all of a sudden get all "la gente" and "la raza" on you, any time they try to pronounce a mexican-sounding name.

Instant channel change for me.

McCain not only interrupted a voter's question telling him we should "make it a hundred" years in Iraq and "that would be fine with me," he told a reporter after the townhall meeting "that U.S. troops could be in Iraq for 'a thousand years' or 'a million years,' as far as he was concerned."

And a chicken in every pot.

Iíve always gotten scared around this time of year. I know who I want for the office but they never seem to make it to the end. When the dirt starts flying everyone forgets what the candidates stand for and start to believe what is said about the opponent.
I just wish we could have a real dialog from these people that would lay out what they will do and how they will do it. No more of this bull*****.
No more I got the money to out spend you and I will.
Somewhere I read that they want to change the way we vote and how the candidates campaign, have everything start in January and end in August primaries, and then we vote for the one in November.

Forgot where I came across this


All these facts come from Freedom of Information requests, public laws, and
various books that have been published, and have not been refuted by
Clinton .


After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, President Clinton promised that
those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia , which killed five U.S. military
personnel Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and
punished.

After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19
and injured 200 U.S. military personnel; Clinton promised that those
responsible would be hunted down and punished.

After the 1998 bombing of U.S embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and
injured 5,000; Clinton promised that thos e responsible would be hunted down
and punished.

After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U.S.
sailors; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and
punished.

Maybe if Clinton had kept those promises, an estimated 3,000 people in New
York and Washington, DC that are now dead would be alive today

AN INTERESTING QUESTION: This question was raised on a Philly radio call-in
show. Without casting stones, it is a legitimate question.

There are two men, both extremely wealthy. One develops relatively cheap
software and gives billions of dollars to charity.

The other sponsors terrorism. That being the case, why was it that the
Clinton Administration spent more money chasing down Bill Gates over the
eight years in office, than Osama bin Laden?

THINK ABOUT IT! It is a strange turn of events. Hillary gets $8 Million for
her forth coming memoir. Bill gets about $12 Million for his memoir yet to
be written. This from two people who spent 8 years being unable to recall
anything about past events while under oath.





- The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance
- Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates*
- Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation
- Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify
- Most number of witnesses to die suddenly
- First president sued for sexual harassment.
- First president accused of rape.
- First first lady to come under criminal investigation
- Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- First president to establish a legal defense fund.
- First president to be held in contempt of court
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad
- First president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court

It makes it look like he did less then Jimmy Carter did.
Had he had those tracked down he may well have gotten Osama.
But way didn't any one listen to Col. Oliver North either? He came right out and blamed Osama for terrorists acts before he had those idiots fly into the towers.

That whole BJ crusade and impeachment was a huge waste of time and money. I don't blame him for that. I just wish he hadn't destroyed all of those M14s :(

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I'm going to have a very difficult time with the general election if McCain is the nominee. He is NO different than Clinton or Obama. No different at all. Conservative my ***.
