I think its funny and sad that gas will over $4.00 by memorial day and that Exxon posted over $40,000,000,000 in profits last year....That was the single largest profit in one year for a American owned company in HISTORY!!!!!!!!

Bush's answer......Lets start drilling in ANWR... Sure instaed of regulating these companies and their record breaking profits we should go and destroy the last remaining Arctic wildlife and wilderness area for more oil.......

I can't wait till he is gone, anyone would be a better president. Actually my 9yr old should run, it would be an improvement.

Agreed Dan. I just don't think Hillary will be any better. I'm not so sure about Obama either, but I think he's the lesser of the two evils.

Ah, an "independent."

What I like to call the "mushy middle." A lot of these people tend to vote on things like how Gore sighs too much, how Bush sounds "like a regular guy," and how Kerry "windsurfs.... must be an elitist!" That said, there have been huge substantive differences between Bush and Gore, Bush and Kerry, and now McCain and Obama. If you don't believe that, you're either a Marxist (both candidates embrace free market capitalism although to different ends), a Libertarian (both candidates embrace the power of government although to different ends), or uninformed (bah, why bother to educate myself about policy differences?).

This time however, the differences are even greater now that we have a Presidential candidate willing to embrace universal health care and other formerly untouchable liberal policy goals. So if by "lesser of two evils" you mean "starkly different candidates with starkly different policy proposals," you would be right.

But no one cares about policy differences right?

That's too much work!

Look who you're lecturing. Better off talking to a wall. This is a kid who's got an "I agree, Dan" key on his keyboard. You think mercury is dense?

There's only one reason he's voting for Obama (namely, that Scranton's mayor supports Clinton) and frankly, the rest of the country is better off if he and others like him didn't vote if that's the extent of their "reasoning".

God forbid someone doesn't just walk lock-step behind the agendas of either the democratic or republican party conventions!

Sorry, some of us do hold opinions that do not fit neatly into a little box labeled "democrat" or "republican" or "liberal" or "conservative."

For the record, yes, I do feel that the republican and democratic parties are more alike than they differ. They are both corrupt and couldn't care less about the regular working taxpayer. They are both out to give our hard-earned money to special interests....although the specific special interests may change between the two parties, the end result is the same.

I refuse to let the DNC, the RNC, or the media dictate who I should vote for. And sometimes, actually MOST times, elections come down to holding my nose and picking the lesser of two evils.

Who are you voting for?
Hillary is being supported by two of the most corrupt and over spending politicians in the state, Doherty and Rendell and that to some is enough of a reason to NOT vote for her.

On the other hand you have those in the flock that are going to vote for her just because "her family is from here", "she is a local", "I know the Rodhams", or the best "my grandfather worked in the lace works with her dad". I think judging a politician on the company they keep is a more valid reason then what have the flock will use to vote for her.

I think its funny that because Ed agrees with me that you hold that against him. I have met Ed and he is an intelligent, good guy so why not grow up a bit and knock off your childish crap with him, all its does is make you look like the child you are and then you get banned for week because of it. The board seems to flow smoothly while your on hiatus so maybe keeping it up isn't a bad thing....
