    I am a Conservative, Plain and simple

    But when I link accurate info about the defict, Hans Bix speech in 03, The real reson the UE rate is dropping, I quickly becomes to some personal

    Why is that?

    Will we ever get to a point in which country comes first?

    When will the liberal just admit that BHO has failed, or simply agree with his policies?

    Partisan politics is the way it is suppose to be. My beliefs are not the same Pelosis are, I have no reason to hide that

    Ok Jake, make it personal

    Your post makes it clear that you - at your core are partisan. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. What I dislike is hyper-partisan and folks who call their own opinion "facts." Your post indicates that your definition of "facing facts" is for someone to agree with your opinion. It's a very common mindset and it is incorrect.

    Equally as dislikable are those who link to media spin and call that 'fact' too.

    If you want “country to come first”, then you will have to put your hardlined partisan beliefs aside and start to embrace the idea of “working together” - something our country used to do, but no longer does very well.

    The current President hasn’t been the best President by any means, but to simply say that “he has failed” I think is a very one-sided, “my way or the highway” approach; the very kind that produces and perpetuates the proliferation of Zombie partisan Robots that dominate and destroy American politics.

    If you were actually sincere with your call to “country first”, you would be trying to encourage an environment where we put our differences aside and acknowledge that there are good ideas coming from both Liberals and Conservatives - which there are.

    It is my opinion that Obama's best chance to be re-elcted lays with the main stream media

    Your thread has some very good points, but the only time you will find one of my threads stating an item to be factual is when I have something to support that fact

    If you vote Obama or Mitt chances are you are doing it for no reason other than being partisan.

    If Mitt wins it will solidify that the Republican party is in fact now "the other liberal party." I think that is worse than Obama having a second term. Could the GOP have picked a more liberal Republican? Clinton was more conservative than Mitt.

    Do you mean Romney's spin on media coverage and other posters calling that fact?

    or what are you reffering to?

    Please note your incompatable statements - bolded. Holding a strong opinion doesn't turn that opinion into fact. I agree with your opinion partially in that I believe Obama has failed on some issues, but saying he IS a failure - is just opinion and I don't agree that he has been nothing but a failure.
