Mccain..

Im listening to him talk right now on the tube...

Iran is the issue and he sounds exactly like bush did before we went into Iraq. How the %$%$%$%$ could we possibly deal with Iran when we can hardly deal with Iraq??

If he is voted in, I am moving to mars.

Can't have Iran disrupting the oil flow after Exxon/BP takes over Iraq's oil reserves.

The other choices are at least talking more about fixing our problems here at home and not trying to address problems on the other side of the planet.

Let's hope they follow through with those promises and not get snatched up in the rhetoric of the moment.

The biggest promise is to change course away from Bush's iraq train wreck. Sometimes vague is good.

Something really frightening from the Scott McClellen interview on Russert yesterday.

In 2004 when Russert asked Bush if he felt the Iraq war was an elective choice, Bush seemed to fumble the response.

Afterwords McClellen remarked that Bush has ask him what Russert was getting at by that question. As in he didn't really get it...

Either Obama or McCain would be a tremendous intellectual improvement over where we are today.

Multipe wife thing. If that rubs your rhubarb, you dont got to go to Iran for that, just go down to south central Texas.

So you assume that w/o GWB or McCain we'd immediately become Iran?

Seriously?

I said GWB, not NRA.

So you claim, but in the previous breath you assert that an Obama presidency would mean the destruction of America by a piss ant 3rd world Iranian theocracy that could be hanging by a thread at any moment.

Sounds more like you're willing to throw Lady Liberty under the bus to score some cheap political points. Not very American if you ask me...

i guess i learned my lesson

never argue with fools
they bring you down to their level then beat you with experience

we survived wilson, carter, clinton and we'll survive obama if that's what god has in store for us.

Arguing implies you made a contrary statement.
Spence and I formulated a question.
you ignored it.
ipso facto, we win
