Romney's the guy. It's inevitable.
Is he right? Would we have been attacked had we kept more to our corner of the Earth all that time? Who knows. I'd bet that we wouldn't have been attacked, we therefore wouldn't have been involved in two wars, and gas would still be as expensive as ever, but in the end, this is all water that's under the bridge. I will say however that our foreign policy of having American soldiers on just about every continent is no longer sustainable for us and for this reason I think we might be forced to become ever more "isolationist", at least in matters of the military, whether RP gets elected or not.
Bottom line for me is the other candidates know they can't touch RP on anything other than some of his unpopular stances like 9/11 and the wars so they go after him only on these points every time they get a chance. It tells me that they aren't prepared to deal with the real problems of the country though. I just hope the Repubs aren't setting us up for another McCain in 2012.
President Obama vs. Republican Candidate
Which is a far better assessment IMHO as the repug field is still splitting the vote.
IIRC I've yet to have cause to call RP a liar. I just think he's nuts. I do think he feels 9/11 is our fault. IMHO even if we had built a maginot line and kept to ourselves as his foreign policy seems to indicate he'd favor.. we'd still have been attacked. Jihadists need an enemy to be demonized. One not easily defeated so they can keep the jihadist lemmings paddling and themselves in power.
"The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."
Did we talk about Perry's Social Security == Ponzi scheme in this thread yet?
I think you post these things to mess with my eyesight, BD. I had to look at this a few times to gather up all of its idiocy.
I'm looking forward to the Biden vs. Rubio debate.
Ron Paul is Insane
Latest results are in... The Nevada House seat remains Republican, congratulations Representative Amodei.
But the real good news:
The Wiener seat went to Turner, the Republican. In a district that's gone to a Democrat since 1929, or something like that. Thank you, Obambi.
The spin on this one's gonna be great...
"It doesn't matter."
"It won't be a district for long."
"Its not a reflection on the president."
I saw some libs discussing it on Twitter. Apparently they're playing the "Republicans and their diebold voting machines fixed the election" card.
I love how the youth of today thinks that Republicans are the crooked party. I mean, who can forget the "vote early, vote often" mantra of the Chicago Democratic Machine (the same that produced our beloved President).
