Hey, life and politics moves in circles, meaning what goes around comes back around. So if one does not like certain actions taken against them or others they support they should not take those same actions against they are at odds with. What is good for the Goose is good for the Gander. now back to the Whine .

I agree with your statement regarding Lee Atwater. I found him to be a reprehensible human being. Rove, is a creation of politics like any other strategist, regardless of party affiliation. Atwater was a special kind of evil. IMO

Now you know what matters. Carson is nothing but toe-jam by comparison. His policy positions are flat, absurd, or non-existent. It's interesting listening to him talk during the debates. He sounds like he still thinks he's sitting on the toilet, practicing his speeches. He has no business in this race.
Here he comes to save the day.... Spit take post of the day!

Again, I lived through that time period and would have been directly impacted by it.

But.... This is starting to get off-topic, so this is it for me on the subject unless there is a thread on it.
I was in Michigan in a school that was 35% black and I saw it. Colleges were there trying to recruit the best of our black students, both the ones with the best grades and our sports players. One guy was told that if he applied to, I think it was Harvard, that he would have a full ride. We had won the championship and this guy was good. Everyone that I know declined any offers from outside the state. So, I certainly believe him.

Too funny. RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval and CNN is Baffled Why Obama’s Approval Ratings Continue to Plummet. Here are 5 Reasons Why.

Carson stand the scrutiny as a man of faith. Obama will reap what he has sown. Everything will be fair in the end.

You all are obsessing with Carson's scholarship...why?

Hillary was born in '47 but claimed she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary who climbed Mt. Everest in '53. Any interest in that?
