Nov 2nd 2008 3:01PM This is nuts - and does not match even ONE other poll. Get real.
Signed, just another voter from a battleground state - Nevada - where we have all of out local polls showing Obamba , AT LEAST 5 points ahead. Susan
BTW - If (in 2000) Gore would have gotten Nevada with its' then 4 electoral college votes, the President would have been Al Gore, Jr. Bush got 271 EC votes, Gore 266. Now - reverse the situation 271-4=268 for Bush Jr. and 266+4=270 for Gore. Hence Gore (nevermind all the cheating in Florida) would be our President - no self-induced (no WMD) war, a continuation of the Clinton economy (yes, to new voters, there was a President that had us in the black instead of 10 trillion in the red hole). Our technology for alternatetive energy would have been a major focus along with our precious and deteriorating environment. And the rest of the world would not hate us.
So, in summation - don't think for even one second that your vote does not count, it does. If you haven't already, get off your butt and go VOTE. Obama was not my first choice. Sen. Rodham-Clinton was (don't dare to compare her to Palin, besides anatomy, that is about all they share). Clinton has a brain, Palin is a pain.
All-in-all - go vote. And make the wise choice.
Sep 25th 2008 10:46AM Palin, no matter what side of the aisle you are on, just is NOT fit to serve. She reeks of uninformed dumb-dumb. I feel bad that 1) she is being used by her party whith some disillionment that she is fit to serve; 2) she does not know she is being used 3) she has nbot yet a word of her own and on her own announced her foriegn policy consists of being able to see Russia from her house. (I whipped out the atlas - unles she is percned atop a mountain, their is no way she can see Russia - try and see for yourself.)
I did not think they came dumber than Dan Quayle, but welcome to Palin's land of fantasy life.
Jul 16th 2008 3:13PM First of all - Whomever "FOXYLYNX" - you have no idea how this process works - but that is okay - you remain among the masses. Oh, by the way, I worked for Senator Reid in D.C. during the time of the "Republican Revolution" - you know - Newt, Livingston, Hyde... etc, had to resign until the Repubs landed on Dennis Hastert (to this day - who...?) and I can whole-heartedly inform you that Reid is no dummy. Stubborn, learned, dogged are better adjectives. He works hard, more than you or the public will ever know. Drives is own car - most Senators are driven by their Chief of Staff or Executive Secretary - I asked him (Reid) about that and he replied that "just because I am a Senator doesn't mean I have forgotten how to drive my car.!"
But, the issue here involves Jimmy Carter - if this country would have implemented even 15% (I chatted with one of the attorneys that was on his staff) of his initatives, we would not be having this "oil crunch", and reckless war we now have. President Carter may be thought of as a less-than-effect President, but he was square on when it came to energy policy and Middle East issues. (He even won a Nobel Peace Prize) So give credit where credit is due. I now live in the desert southwest, and we are fighting with all the states around me for water (for hydroelectric energy instead of oil. It is an issue not going away soon and unles we desalinate the Pacific Ocean (seriously, this is being considered) it is not going away soon. So President Carter - kudos to you for your glimpse into our future - it is so sad that noone wanted to listen - and they still don't.
Jun 20th 2008 12:50PM I feel so lucky now (for myself, not for the U.S. or world), as soon as my own democrats did in my candidate - Hillary, I no longer have to pay attention to this daily crap - now it is just "None of the above" for me and my husband. Almost like being a republican for this good democrat household.
And Michele Obama - I had no idea she hated white people the way she does. WOW !
Jun 15th 2008 1:34PM well, dougk and flyer, I assure you my mother had the graciousness NOT to name me either "stupid" OR "a**hole" - one does so hope you don't use that language around your own children.
Indeed, the breakdown of the american family DOES begin in the home. Boys, give your potty-mouth a break and have a Happy Fathers Day !
Jun 15th 2008 12:29PM NIIIIICE!!! How wonderful it is that the rich can shove their richness under your nose in yet another way as our middle-class economy is killing us normal folks. Enjoy your ride George, Dick, John and Cindy.
Mar 4th 2008 11:18PM Why should she drop out, she is going to win. Like it or not, this country is going to finally get back on track, may be kicking and screaming - but Madam Hillary WIL NOT LET US DOWN. She never has before -and she won't start now.
Feb 18th 2008 3:04PM Well, I have to agree with Brunetta, Melissa and Barry - Hillary is getting raked over the coals for nothing that is issue oriented. The media has fallen in love with a truly UNTESTED, but well-spoken slight-of-hand magician. Obama does not have a lick of experience at running anything except a good campaign. But, he is not living on planet Earth when it comes to substance. He NEVER has a stance on education, environment, BUDGET CRISIS (which, by the way, Bill Clinton had us solvent, solid, and back in the black economically - now that is gone for this stupid never-ending war that Obama says he will end - Obama is living in fantasy land if he thinks we can just end this war - Bush started it for oil, and we aren't leaving until we get it - just wait and see), job creation, affordable housing and an embarrassingly dreadful unemployment rate for a "first-world" nation.
All said, Obama is a very nice looking empty cup. We need leadership - Hillary, who is fearless and tested and knows politics and is smart (which is why Republicans are terrified of her) AND is ready to go from day one - she has been there to see how it all operates (and being male/female should not matter (recall Maggie Thatcher - the brits didn't get thier collective "knickers in a twist" over her having ovaries)) - we should be at least as sophisticated as they are.
McCain is not liked, or even holds the beliefs of the core of his own party - but, they are stuck with him. Usually a veep can run at the end af a presidents' term - can you imagaine a Cheney presidency? OMG - we would be even more hated all over the world than we already are. BTW - that is another thing Bill Clinton (like him or not) did for us - the rest of the world liked us, trusted us and we were able to freely visit other countries without fearing for our very lives. They like Hillary too (and like it or not, our world reputation is important). To be too much of a strict nationalist is to be very unrealistic - we don't operate inside a box. We have to have a leader that is repected and liked (recall Bill Clinton again) so that we are able to function internationally. Score one for Hillary there too. What has Obama done internationally - nothing. And truly, do you picture McCain schmoozing with foriegn leaders ? His own party doesn't want to schmooze with him.
All said- Hillary is the only realistic choice at a time in history that our government is economically and morally bankrupt, hated and we had to have other countries come in to recount the votes in Florida ( that is despicable and embarrassing AND THE MEDIA DID NOT UTTER A PEEP THAT THE 2000 ELECTION WAS "FIXED". So now the media has it's 15 minutes of fun with thier new darling - Obama. But at the end of the day - we need tested leadership and that means Hillary.
Feb 14th 2008 1:22AM Thank you Lisa! for "Someone Saved my Life Tonight" by Elton -
"So save your strength and run the field -
You play Alone
And Someone Saved my Life Tonight Sugar Bear...."
Pretty strong stuff!
Thanks - Susan
Feb 6th 2008 3:02PM Right on Carl! Hillaries' victories were impressive after being told for soooo long that she was going down in flames! Well, Mr. Obama - welcome to the "big boys/girls club". It's gonna take more than Oprah to land the white house. You have to come up with at least half the plan Hillary has in store to restore our beleagured country.
And poor Mr. McCain, but he does deserve congratulations, he just didn't run against anyone of note. For the Reps, McCain wasn't much, but he was all you had!
