    I hear a lot of people on the left say that the Tea Party crowd are a bunch of racists.
    If Condoleezza Rice was president, do you think there would have been a Tea Party movement?

    Hmm good question, but I doubt that there would since she is a republican.

    that would have been an interesting situation to watch.

    I'd kind of like to see Condi as POTUS.

    Condi would be a great president. Unfortunately, she is too smart to run. She has no interest in that.

    If any Republican had been elected president in 2008 there would be very little right wing outrage over spending.

    I notice the right leaners seem ot be avoiding the question....

    That depends. If the Republican kept up spending at GWB levels, you bet there would be outrage.

    I'm inclined to agree with you, UScitizen. I think there needed to be a weeding out of the big spenders in the republican party. They got spanked, and spanked hard in 2008, I believe that the newcomers in 2010 will be much more fiscally reponsible.

    Well, tell Karl to tell Condi to get her ass ready to run in '12. Female, black, and smart... if only she was gay, we'd have it done and dusted!!


    Oh, and tell him to tell Powell to come out of retirement too.

    That's the problem. Both of them have said they have no interest in running.

    They both would be great, but they know how ridiculous campaigning is.

    Next time I chat with Karl, I'll let him know that he needs to get right on that. :lol:
