  • Commented on Obama Positioned to Quickly Reverse Bush Actions
    Thanks for the link. One very big step in the right direction....
  • Commented on Obama Positioned to Quickly Reverse Bush Actions
    I want to know what is going to happen to Guantanamo. I haven't heard much about that. That to me will say a lot about what type of president he will be....
  • Commented on Conventional Wisdom
    I've seen quite a few polls say exactly the opposite of this. So I'd be interested to see how they collected their data....
  • Commented on The Buck Stops Where?
    Even bush is moving away from deregulation now. Personally I would just settle for more transparency....
  • Commented on He's Back
    I was curious about the debates in the primaries as well....
  • Commented on He's Back
    Yes Obama thinks about his answers. That isn't always a good thing. Take their debate to religious communities. "What will you do about evil?". Obama gives a long technical answer that will play well with a lot of people who...
  • Commented on He's Back
    I'm not so sure Obama is quick on his feet. Intelligent yes. Also very well prepared himself. I think he is at his strongest when giving speeches and not so much in debates or under pressure. Maybe thats just me......
  • Commented on Palin - Gibson Interview
    I am trying to decide what is worse. Palin being a heartbeat away from being the most powerful executive in the world or the Daily Show not having four years of good material from her....
  • Commented on Enough is Enough
    Oh and did Obama mention that McCain used it in reference to Hilary? I haven't seen that. Would be a good thing to do and fast. Considering some polls show a huge move of female voters towards McCain after Palin...
  • Commented on Enough is Enough
    A nice recovery from a really stupid move. I have no idea what the speech writers or his advisor's where thinking. I'm just wondering how much this will be played in comparison to Pig and Lipstick. My guess is not...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    The vpilf jokes are going to send a few points McCain's way that is for sure....
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    @ Calligraph I cringed. I find any use of personal tragedies as a political tool cringe worthy. There is a difference though. If she is asked how she can expect to lead the country with so little experience (2-3 Years...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    "I predict a lot of talk about how tough it is to raise Down's syndrome child and nothing could be more difficult than that." I didn't even think of that. I can see it now. I don't know if I...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    I don't think the VP matters past the initial reaction, but the pundits are going to fucking love this. Talk about stealing thunder....
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    apologies for the lost vote repeat. @Robinson - That made my day....
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    Obama has been doing more since he won the Primary to win over the evangelicals then he has done to win over Hilary supporters. He lost probably all support from evangelicals last night by mentioning gay rights and abortion in...
  • Commented on McCain Ready To Lead?
    I don't have a camera right now...so I am going to have to pass. Too bad. She annoys me, but I have to admit that was great delivery....
  • Commented on McCain Ready To Lead?
    I'm sure it was ALL her own writing....
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Monday
    He should have been vague about this and taken a bi-partisan approach from the start. After he won the election he could just put forward whatever strategy he wanted to. It's not like he doesn't have experience in the tactic...
  • Commented on Feingold on FISA
    I should have said played safer politics.I agree with you calligraph actually. In all likelihood it is political maneuvering. Which I do not mind in itself. However, I do not see her making this move two years ago. She has...
  • Commented on Feingold on FISA
    My thoughts on Hilary are that on votes like this in the past she would have played politics. She would have aimed for the center and tried to seem tough on terror. I don't think she needs to anymore. She...
  • Commented on Compromise = Sellout
    Zaphod, I probably never will vote for a Republican. Give credit to Obama though, he is trying his hardest....
  • Commented on Compromise = Sellout
    "The FISA Amendments Act nearly eviscerates oversight of government surveillance by allowing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to review only general procedures for spying rather than individual warrants. The FISC will not be told any specifics about who will...

    "MMMMMmmm, compulsive registration NYT link... yum." http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/04/opinion/04fri1.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=the%20new%20and%20not%20improved%20barack&st=cse&oref=slogin this link did not require an account in case you or anyone else wanted to read it....
  • Commented on Obama’s Faith-Based Folly
    What about funding religious hospitals? Not such a leap from charities. Of course they will not be expected to act against their religious convictions on things such as abortion. Its an all to slippery slope and when Bush brought this...
  • Commented on Obama’s Faith-Based Folly
    I'm unclear about one thing. Does mental distress include rape and incest or is that a separate issue?...
  • Commented on Obama’s Faith-Based Folly
    I heard somewhere we could burn corn? Norm, just redirect to Obamas website already, jeez. "This whole FISA and faith-based business is small potatoes in the grand scheme." Happy July 4th!...
  • Commented on Obama’s Faith-Based Folly
    "I'm beginning to like this guy!" This looks less and less like a move to the center and more and more like the charge of the light brigade. I simply don't see Obama winning a larger percentage of the evangelical...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Thursday
    On that note we should get to listen to the phone conversations of anyone who signs the FISA bill....
  • Commented on Wesley Clark Stands His Ground
    Magnolia, if he said that....wow...he could use all the generals he can get to....
