    Hatuey, it must be depressing to be so wrong and misguided so often.

    Clinton wasn't a Rhodes Scholar. Obama wasn't a perfesser either. What qualifies Carter an intellectual? His record?

    Obama and Carter have proven what it means to graduate at the top of the class. Carter is known as the worst modern president, and an anti-Semite to boot. Obama, in a short 30-months has shown us he is equal to Carter, if not worse.

    What exactly makes Obama an intellectual? ROTFLOL... This I'd love to hear.

    So much for what Leftists call "intellectuals".
    Again, as I've stated many times, the right doesn't have an intellectual leader to save its soul. Mostly bumpkins who barely make it through school and get by based on popularity.
    Republicans have a huge history of leaders who knew what made the country work. Contrast that to the Socialists on the other side of the aisle. They once claimed JFK, but cannot anymore as today he sounds like a Conservative Republican. The Libs have moved their posts so far Left, they believe Marxist ideology qualifies as "intellectual"... this isn't really anything new. They believe a few wise men, men smarter than the remainder of us should be responsible for protecting us from ourselves. How brilliant... if it didn't continually result in massive failure.

    How intellectual is that? It's insanity really... doing the same crap others have done and failed miserably at, only to believe you can do it better.
    That's our intellectual Left. Trying to sell us the same crapola and believing that by changing the packaging continuously, it will work. Have to admit... sometimes it does, as in 2008, but the correction was furious and clear. The "intellectuals" understand one thing, they cannot be honest about their desires and who they really are.

    Yet, the Leftists and their "intellectuals" continue with their lies, deceit and repackaging efforts. Moderate today, Progressive tomorrow, Centrist the next season, Followed by independent, and then let the cycle repeat itself.

    The right wing in this country and many others survives based on the support of farmers and country folks. Don't like it? Take it up with Nixon. The last intellectual in the GOP. He decided to try something called "The Southern Strategy".
    Wrong again.

    Republicans overwhelmingly introduced, promoted and passed every civil rights act from the end of the Civil War right up to and including the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    The Myth of the Southern Strategy
    The Myth of ‘the Southern Strategy’ - New York Times

    Everyone knows that race has long played a decisive role in Southern electoral politics... Meanwhile, the Republican Party successfully wooed disaffected white racists with a “Southern strategy” that championed “states’ rights.”

    It’s an easy story to believe, but this year two political scientists called it into question. In their book “The End of Southern Exceptionalism,” Richard Johnston of the University of Pennsylvania and Byron Shafer of the University of Wisconsin argue that the shift in the South from Democratic to Republican was overwhelmingly a question not of race but of economic growth. In the postwar era, they note, the South transformed itself from a backward region to an engine of the national economy, giving rise to a sizable new wealthy suburban class...

    The two scholars support their claim with an extensive survey of election returns and voter surveys. To give just one example: in the 50s, among Southerners in the low-income tercile, 43 percent voted for Republican Presidential candidates, while in the high-income tercile, 53 percent voted Republican; by the 80s, those figures were 51 percent and 77 percent, respectively. Wealthy Southerners shifted rightward in droves but poorer ones didn’t.

    “...when folks went to the polling booths,” he says, “they didn’t shoot off their own toes. They voted by their economic preferences, not racial preferences.” Shafer says these results should give liberals hope. “If Southern politics is about class and not race,” he says, “then they can get it back.”

    I like Bachmann. I think she will be a tough one to beat, smart and a strong willed woman who knows her politics

    Because he likes what she has to offer at this early stage that locks him in? Hmmmm. Seems libs are desperate for repubs to pick early so they can have time to make up crap about that candidate....

    By who?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Many of today's youth gather their knowlege of current political events from comedians too. Somehow, that makes some kind of ironic sense.
