OMG. Do you not know the meaning of the word 'tend'?

Must be that public education.

No, but they kept the house by a large margin, and without the house, nothing happens.

I never thought that the stupid, condescending 'war of women' crap actually worked, I did not think women were that shallow and easily fooled. I guess I was wrong and women really don't use what's between their ears to vote, they really do 'vote with their lady parts.'

Now it will show if Republicans really care about their country, or whether they will continue to try and paralyze the country for another long 4-year period just for ideological reasons... They should have realized by now that they do not have the support of the majority of the population as they seemed to have hoped and thought for years now.

Actually, I didn't become a Democrat until 2000 although Bill Clinton was the first Democrat that I ever voted for.



I see you still haven't acquired either a dictionary or a thesaurus. As for tending, when you look at everyone as people instead of intending on doing so, call me.
So you don't understand simple phrases and you voted for Obama? Proof of why the country is going down the toilet. Ladies & gentlemen, exhibit A, the perfect Democrat!!

Tend: verb

1. to be disposed or inclined in action, operation, or effect to do something: The particles tend to unite.
2. to be disposed toward an idea, emotion, way of thinking, etc.: He tends to be overly optimistic. Her religious philosophy tends toward pantheism.

dis·posed  adjective

having a certain inclination or disposition; inclined (usually followed by to or an infinitive): a man disposed to like others.

Tending is conditional, like in: I lean towards. When on tends, on is expressing a lack of commitment, or permanence.

Compare and contrast
I tend to look at everyone as people.

I look at everyone as people.
You've got a long ways to go before you question my intelligence or education.

Why can't you accept that a lot of people, just as intelligent as you seem to think you are, do not subscribe to Romney's ideas and plans? By trying to paint them as stupid or ignorant or whatever you only come across as a bad loser...

Yeah, you can cut & paste with the best of them.

How about "I am inclined to view everyone as people." Seems to work, huh? WOW!!! Seriously, this is what we have voting in our elections and now I know why Obama was elected.

I m always amused when the party of Willie Horton and "welfare queens" starts screaming about class warfare and divisiveness. I guess it is all in who you're blaming.

Politicians have whipped up the bases by pointing fingers at the other side since the beginning.

And wanting the tax rate to go back to Clinton era levels does not rise to the levels of "warfare" anyway. That is one of the silliest arguments out there IMO.
