    One campaigned as the "kinder and gentler" candidate and promised emphatically "No New Taxes". The other campaigned as the "compassionate conservative".

    The former has been proven a compulsive and pathological liar and the latter has been proven an egotistical chickenhawk with no consideration whatsoever for the plights of his own countrymen much less the plights of the world at large.

    Now, who are we to believe in this election from our field of so called conservatives? One thing is for sure. The conservatives will have to cover a lot of ground if they are ever to be taken seriously again as leaders of the free world.

    How much more "kinder and gentler" or "compassionate as a conservative" or averse to taxation without representation does a modern day conservative have to be to win a national election? So far, not one presents the American ideals that will be required to succeed in any national election.

    2008 will be a watershed year for Democrats. And I suspect that observation to be correct for many years to come. Americans truly want a kinder, gentler, compassionate and frugal president. There is not one to be found in the Republican Party.

    Yup, all it will take is one term of Total Democratic control to REMIND people why they booted their Liberal asses to begin with.

    It will take two terms...one listening to the Dems whine about cleaning up "the mess the Republicans left behind" and the second for the less astute to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Reagan began the decline of the working American, Bush Senior was lost after too many years of voodoo economics, Clinton raised taxes and had the luck of the internet explosion, Bush junior has screwed up so much it is hard to categorize. So in the end, anyone except a partisan fool, will take Clinton's eight over a conservative republican. And by the way Gore won.

    Thanks for the humor! It's a good way to start the day. It is odd however, that I don't remember "President Gore"....but then I am old and tend to forget some things, especially when they aren't true.

    They DID reelect him , bt then that of course just means he stole another election.


    Remind me again how people don't really think 2000 was stolen. Further remind me how after all the independent recounts after the fact Gore still lost, he should have won.

    What is really hilarious about the " he did not win the popular vote" argument is the fact Gore's people thought Gore would win the electoral College but lose the popular vote and so just before the election he REMINDED everyone that we do not select Presidents by popular vote and to RESPECT the Electoral process.
