good point.  i remember romping around camp pendleton one year with some girls from arkansass.  it was just before the first clinton prez.  they were frantic that he not be ellected.  they couldn't understand why the press didn't do a better job of researching how dirty  he was in his own state.

same with obama except the population was complicit.  they didn't want to know any more than the press didn't want to report.  they wanted "change" and they got it.  sometimes getting what we ask for is not the same as getting what we want.....

Is it not about what he says but the manner in which he says it. People are
ga-ga over the guy and they haven't really been listening or paying attention
to a word he says. I may be from a highly democratic state, and was not too
keen over what McCain was trumpeting, but I didn't vote for Obama. afro

i suggested when he was running that people read his speeches rather than listen to them.  there is something about his delivery (with TOTUS) that causes people to feel good without knowing or caring what he has said.  that's pretty dangerous.

McCain was a terrible pick, but the press sure loved him.

TOTUS=TelePrompter Of The United States.  it now has a facebook page, is on twitter, and has a blog site.

How did we let that happen? The more I listen to Huckabee the more I regret that he was not our candidate.

I think that was what amazed me more than anything... Both parties had 8 years (or for those who though W. couldn't make it into a second term, at least four years to develop two rival candidates of equal stature, but it just didn't happen again and  that was the biggest crime against the country from the major parties.

Is the selection soooo bad that THEY were the best choices (not to lead the country) but to win the seat? The Obamaprompter is the only thing that stops him from using the words "Ummmm" and Uhhhhh" every other word - luckily it is very portable and well placed so that he comes off sounding confident in the wors which were written by others.

I have always  believed and know it is so, that we elect speech writers in this country, not the stage preformer who delivers their speeches. The democrats were smart enough (as they always are) to recognise this and have multiple speeches ready for any day of rallying, as that when the news-services coered the rallies - they always had fresh material to air.

On the other hand, we got from the Repubs, endless speeches on Tod's remarkable snow-machine treks across the snowy wilderness, once with a broken arm, and isn't that some tough lady I chose to lead this country in the event of my own demise - we'll paraphrasing, but I think most voters worried if McCane will be around in 4 years, let known 8 years and if so, will he be worse the Ronnie in his latter days.

So the brains of the machines have surely started over, looking for the NEXT candidate for 4 or 8 years (likely 8 years) it reminds me of the Ricky Lake Show, or Jenny Jones show - once you have aimed your target audiences at minorities, it's almost imposssible to get your show cancelled, no matter how bad the ratings: why do you think Maury Povich has been on so long, that "When it comes to 14 month old Tara, you ARE the Baby Daddy!" and smut TV lives on and on.

Elections and politics aren't much different, you aim for a target audience and do what it takes to get them out to vote - truth be told, we have 3.5 years to see what Obama can do, and those who crossed platforms, choice age over valor will have enough time to see if they can justify putting their liberal ways away and look for another candidate that may finish the job that Obama has started - which I think he is giving billions away with little chance of seeing solvency in the time restraints he has given.

Last thought, the Government has a way of manipulating our thinking. A good example, they propose a program that cost 1 billion dollars, but only use $400M on that project, they tell us that the program not only came in way under expectations, but feed us a line that they made $600M in the process because it cost so little, that we now have surplus for other projects. Even tossing the words like PROFIT, and Available funding for other projects, when leaving that $600M in the bank seems to never be an option. Can't we just once call it as it is, must the government always over-estimate, causeing left over funds and then call them savings - they even phrase it to make the $400M seem as if because the savings were so high it is paid for with a huge surplus and they claim success at being geniuses in financing.

No one is honest in Capitol Hill, they all SPIN everything enough that competent ecconomist's heads would spin.

My favorite Brian, has to be when spending of a BILLION DOLLARS is allocated, but only $700,000,000 is used - then they say we saved and added $300,000,000 to the ecconomy - not even mentioning the $700M they spent. So by OVER-INFLATING everything, we seem to always be in the BLACK and Congress, down to local government pats themselves on the back for doing such a good job.

We sure don't keep books like that at home.

 May of 2010.

  The man got the Peace Prize before he had a chance to use the White House toilet.
  Things have gotten steadily worse for the economy, and the Euro is now about to implode.
  There is concern that the "Chinese Bubble" is about to burst. And they hold a lot of world paper.
  We are now so deep in debt that there is no way out. Literally. No way out. You can't cut enough, or raise taxes enough, to get out.
  I hope you have a garden and the basic skills to make it through what is comming.
  Once things bottom out, I'm getting a good dog and am going hunting for Democrats.

The time is coming to pay for "The Great Society". Now if we don't ever repay China,perhaps they will be broke and revert back to third world status.It would be just a bad day at the craps tables.We have their goods and their money.Maybe we should do what so many debtor nations did to the US. Just say screw them and let them write it off as a bad investment. grin

We are so tied to China now that if they go down we will end up going down like Greece.

There's one thing that I don't understand. In the GFC 1, it was the banks who were struggling with debt, now its the countries. Who does everyone owe the money to?

if sara is an alien, i'd like to go to her planet!

the banks have no money because the people have no money.  banks make (or lose) money from investment.  if there is no private wealth/business being created there is no place to invest.  there is less private wealth being created because government all over the world is growing.  government creates and earns nothing.  they take wealth.  the more they take, the less available for business and private enterprise.  government then gives money to people who create nothing and earn nothing.  while that money does recirculate, it does not grow.  the money pool remains stagnant but the needs of government grow.  pretty soon, the needs of government out pace the economy.  the people have no wealth because no jobs are created and the government takes  more.  the government has no money because they have run out of people from whom to take money.

cool huh?   evil

your country and ours have much in common as far as the attitudes of the people who demanded their freedom.  unfortunately, we both have traded our freedom for "stuff" from the government.  looks like it was not such a good trade.......           

if we have the will to change, all is not lost.

if that doesn't work....maybe you'd like to share a cave?   grin

this is what many of us have believed.  look what happened when enough people started standing up.  for every loud mouth like me, there are 10 who believe the same, thought they were alone, and never spoke up.

make noise!  it attracts attention  evil

I found this on Wiki while reading up on the dark sith.  I think it might also stand for certain politicians. 

    "The Sith are portrayed in various Star Wars media as individuals who use the dark side to attain power at any cost. The Star Wars  prequel films establish that they draw upon strong emotions, both negative  and positive, as the source of their power, and care only about themselves."

It may end up being the end of the Republic.  Just watch out for a guy named Palpatine.
