If they can't do any better than that with a campaign, what on earth will they do with the country?


Bottom line, most people if true, are worse off then 4 yrs agao, we all know it! And we have witnessed it.
Obama is a baby, cry baby, do me no wrong, don't disagree with me or else, and we all know it.
Obama had the biggest lie of all his slogan of HOPE N' CHANGE, buy what it is i tell you, i expect you too!

The Democrats should have the information. They are spending millions on TV etc. They should be able to hire smart people. They should be able to tell us how the country's problems can be adressed. Instead nothing but negative attacks day after day. Me thinks they are not as smart as they would like to be.

Stereotype much?

They must have an enormous contempt for the people who they are asking to vote for them.

Canadians sure are different. It's very usual for a party to actually print a document outlining exactly what the party plans on doing if elected. These policy papers will cover everything from taxes, justice system reforms, education, foreign affairs and so on. These policy positions that are written down make it possible to have an intellegent debate on the merits or lack of in the various platforms. It seems that this would be a very good thing to happen in US politics.
actually it is necessary just to keep up with the DNC

Do you really expect someone like Ezra to say anything different?
The rest is just your biased opinion.
The same leftist pinhead of JournoList fame. Er..infamy.

Any substance you'd like to include in your retarded rant?



"In the end, when tough times roll around, they've always ended up behaving like Keynesians."

Have a link?

Anything?

Nope, you can't buy them off with borrowed money the way you can sleazy unions, corrupt corporations and millions of lazy welfare recipients.

Of course, that's the real problem liberals have with the movement, isn't it?

Fox News has always spoke up but never get credit for it.

Bald face lies are politicians bread and water whether Dem or Repub, but the left only sees what they want to see while the right can see thru the BS.

I am wondering that myself. The guy manages to come over as intelligent, articulate, and sincere, but what he says is complete hogwash. I can hear that he is articulate, but the other two adjectives are mutually exclusive. What I find sad is how little respect the GOP has for its people. But maybe they don't want the truth so much as to have a winner.
