    Another Flame Zone ... only this time toward my favorite people *sarcasm* ...

    I will open the first non-Rush one with ....

    ... how much "American False Gods" is ruining American culture and how they are helping to dumb down the US. I think it's about the only reason Obama was popular and won the election, because people are basing all their choices on factors that these people on this show win for: Appearance, Speech, and Controversy.

    Any ideas or comments?

    Much truth is what you say, but recall that McCain was ahead prior to the financial meltdown. Americans were angry, and the GOP was in power, so they had to be punished.

    I am surprised that President Obama still has high poll numbers, around 65%. Time will tell if the same anger will reverse Dem fortunes.

    While true, many of us independent voters wouldn't have let that sway our choices, party affiliation means little to the educated thinkers. I believe McCains failure in getting our votes had to do more with who he chose for VP, which made us question what his other choices may be if he had won. The fence sitters though I believe only chose Obama to "follow the popular crowd", as sad as that sounds. Fence sitters tend not to think much about what's possible, otherwise race would have been much closer because McCain had a lot of good answers. Again though, his showing what he picks for positions in government does say a lot about him, and was the only reason I, myself, abstained from voting completely this time around.

    Interesting. I voted for or against everything/everybody on my ballot. This was the first time in my life I didn't cast a vote in a presidential election. None of the options were palatable to me.

    By your logic not a single "American" voted for Bush Jr., since he didn't do anything to help either and Obama is pretty much doing the same crap he did.

    ROFLMNAO... She's denigrating 'fence sitters', while she defines herself as one who was unable to make decision.

    McCain had no chance of winning that election and his choice of Palin put him within 4 points of winning. Absent Palin, without regard of another candidate McCain would have given th democrats a 10-15 pt spread.

    Deciding not to pick between a giant douche and a turd sandwich is still a choice, to choose one over the other is to make a bad choice because really ... nobody wins. Use your head not your blind faith sometime ...

    Fence sitters tend to vote for the popular candidates without thinking, kinda like you vote for one just because of the party.

    ROFL... So you're arguing that you chose to NOT MAKE A CHOICE?

    Oh GOD that's precious... 'Choosing to not make a choice is to CHOOSE TO REMAIN ON THE FENCE!

    Now here's the thing: Fence-Sitters sit astride the FENCE; THE FENCE WHICH REPRESENTS THE point of DEMARCATION of two distinct sides. McCain represented and continues to represent Fascism... Hussein MArxism... and while it is true that BOTH represent Socialism, The choice between a fascist and a marxist is hardly debatable, let alone indistinguishable... While a fascist is a leftist and a marxist is a leftist, the fascist is the only choice which can be made by an advocate of freedom WHEN THE CHOICE IS LIMITED TO ONE OF THE TWO.

    A Fence-Sitter is one who SITS ON THE FENCE BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO MAKE A CHOICE... You REFUSED TO MAKE A CHOICE; that is what YOU have stated... DEFINING YOURSELF AS THAT WHICH YOU LAMENT.

    Now, I have never voted for anyone because of their party affiliation... and I've never made any statement anywhere, which could lead ANY REASONABLY intelligent individual to conclude that such is the case... Thus your position that I vote based upon party is, as is typical of you: BASELESS, meaning it is a projection which is made without a FACTUAL BASIS: A deception; a LIE... which is indicative of you being a lair, or, assuming you deny that you intended to decieve, its indicative you being a fool...

    Uh oh! A fool or a liar? Now I can just imagine the angst that this decision will bring a fence-sitter... Just take your time and work it out as best ya can...
