    I didn't like some of his spending policies. But as far as being a leader, he was far superior to Obama. Liberals just don't want to accept the fact that Harvard degrees don't make a leader. George Washington didn't even go to college, but was a superior leader compared to almost every other president.

    I think that sound policies make for a good leader. Leading confidently in the wrong direction is not something we should encourage.

    I'm sorry, Obama is not a leader, and that's worse than his policies. I don't agree with his politics, but Clinton was even a better leader (even with his please all politics).

    I agree and hope we elect a president with sound policies next time rather than the one we have now.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I'm often inclined to think that the irrational hatred of Obama on the right must be based on race, as it clearly can't be explained by policy, but then I remember the irrational hatred of Clinton.

    We'd already have compromise if the GOP didn't insist on social policy riders in every bill.

    We wouldn't need to social policy riders on every bill if morals and values weren't in such low supply in the country to begin with.

    Comprehensive moral doctrine aren't compatible with democracy and the only way to enforce them, what ever they may be, is through tyranny. So stop trying to shove your religion down my throat unless you want to be a tyrant.

    I'm not talking about Religion, I'm talking about Morality; and if it requires Tyrany to do it, I'm more than fine with that.
