    clinton had a pretty good presidency and alot of good for the country, happened...his advisors were not the ones with the keeping the pants zipped problem...

    Such is not the case with president bush....much negative has happened for our country and his advisors are probably one of the causes....they should not be rewarded....or be listened to because they did a shitty job of advising Bush imo.

    There are plenty of good republicans out there that are knowledgable and respected that could be chosen from... that do not have the same mindthink as the neocons that ruled the roost the last 8 years.

    It can't change as long as liberals insist those who politically disagree with them are only doing so because they are evil, greedy, selfish, uncaring, etc. and therefore such politicians and candidates deserve to be accused of having the most base and despicable character traits at all times, accused of the worst motives possible for any and all acts - and nothing else but a liberal's PERSONAL hatred since they deserve to be PERSONALLY destroyed. Until the day comes where the left can admit that political disagreement with them isn't really based on a depraved character after all but strongly held opinions about the best means to achieve goals, it will never change.

    Frankly I'm sick and tired of hearing the left insist that because I or someone else is a conservative, it means the "real" motive for politically disagreeing is because we are mean-spirited, want to steal from the poor (yeah right, makes as much sense as deciding to mug the homeless guy instead of the one with that fat wallet sticking out. If I wanted to steal from anyone, I wouldn't be targeting those with the least, believe me. I'm not interested in stealing from anyone though) and have no concern for the environment (conservatives don't love their kids and don't mind at all if they are poisoned by toxic air and water and look forward to killing off all wildlife and destroying all forests, tearing up the Constitution, and creating a theocracy of all things. LOL) and have no concern for those at the very bottom except for a desire to give them a swift kick in the ribs, right? In fact, I am very well educated and a moral, very compassionate and generous person. Which would be impossible according to those indoctrinated to believe that their political opponents are just evil people, huh?

    Conservatives have realized the best means for achieving these goals are all too often going to be counterintuitive to the beliefs and founding premise of those idealistic and unrealistic liberals who certainly appear to have no real understanding of human nature, seem not to actually like human beings anyway - and believe they can force and "re-educate" human nature out of the human race instead of expending the time to figure out how to best exploit that inherent human nature for the greater good.

    As long as liberals try to shut down political debate by insisting all who disagree are only motivated to disagree because they are evil -then yeah, there will still be a significant split in this country no matter who is President. But it will sharply intensify whenever a Republican wins the White House until liberals do stop it.

    A 3% margin in popular vote isn't all that much. We've grown accustom recently to very close races. 1984 was about as lopsided a Presidential election as I can remember....and the Dems still held Congress....

    While it's cool a Black man won the office, he will be judged by his impact on the country the next four years. His agenda appears pretty much divorced from the Congressional Leadership, at least based on his press interviews during the campaign. Will he govern according to his voting record or according to his campaign rhetoric? He want's a second term so I doubt he'll pay a great deal of attention or Pelosi or Reed....and that will drive some of the lefties over here nuts....

    Where are you getting 3%?

    Obama won by 7%

    Politics - News, Opinion and Analysis from CNN.com

    The first Bush beat Michael Dukkakkis by 7% and that was considered a total blowout.

    I'll be glad to tell my grandchildren that I voted for MCcain. I would hate to be associated with what is going to happen in the next four years.:eusa_whistle:
