    The economy and jobs encompasses the stock market, oil prices, shipping jobs overseas, minimum wage, etc. etc. Terrorism encompasses homeland security, the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, etc. For this reason I don't think the argument that "values trumped other issues because its a multiple-choice question" doesn't exactly hold water. Many of those "issues" were expansive and covered multiple sub-issues.

    "Moral values" definitely had a lot to do with the president's re-election. And while I'm not sure about "bigoted Christian redneck", I'd say that "rural Christians who dont believe in abortion or gay marriage" is not "myth" and was a significant factor.

    To an extent, nudist, but moral values is the mega issue which is infused throughout all others. There are moral components to nearly all policy discussions, on every issue (ie "A moral society doesn't deny free health care", "a moral society doesn't allow black people to attend undesegregated schools "). What pisses off you libs is you can tolerate no other moral righteousness and indignation than your own.

    He never put his figure up in the air to see which way the wind blows. He puts his figure up in the air whenever Theresa gets so mad at him that she shoves a pole up his butt, where his finger is otherwise. Not surprisingly it happens alot.
