    I already told you which study it was and you've decided to ignore it; that is OK.
    You don't have the info. Just admit it. A poli-science class project doesn't count.

    Thanks for making my case that it was about Bush spending and the financial meltdown.

    I've already posted it, twice.

    I wouldn't call sending out survey's to 1900+ historians a political science project. On top of them getting 1200 of them back. This wasn't a phone call this was a 119 page survey.

    It is when you are surveying historians about history.

    Harry Reid is a pro-life, pro gun democrat. Republicans only win because we are pro-life and pro gun. I'd like to see Harry Reid run for President but I don't suspect he has the confidence for it besides I think he is getting pretty old.

    As usual Hautey only looks at one side of things...

    What’s behind the various Occupy Wall Street (OWS) factions engaging in online squabbles and tweet battles? Believe it or not, Barack Obama. Within the movement, there are those who believe the established Left is trying to co-opt OWS to get President Barack Obama reelected. And it’s causing quite the stir.

    In fact, Adbusters — a prominent force in the movement — is calling it a “Battle for the Soul of Occupy.” It is railing against groups like Moveon.org for seeking to piggyback on the enthusiasm and digital organization of the Occupiers to ensure the status quo in the federal government continues for four more years.

    But the Occupiers aren’t taking this usurpation lightly. Since Adbusters wrote an article decrying the phenomenon, Occupiers have been rallying to the meme of “Jump, jump, jump over the body of the old dead left.”

    Adbusters has even tried to create a sort of cautionary tale for OWS followers by advancing the idea that the Tea Party is now a co-opted movement of Beltway Republicans — a fate they claim could befall Occupy with Democrats:

    The left has their own problems with OWS, but as usual they either deny it, or ignore it....The problem here is not that Right is moving too far right, or that left is moving too far left, but rather that on both sides of the spectrum, the centrist is becoming extinct.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Actually, that's the only GOOD thing that's happening out of all this garbage on both sides.

    You leftists are so smart....

    and the normals in the party will have to either break with them or go along. Either way, the GOP loses.

    Once you turn the rightwing noise machine on, you can't turn it off. It just gets louder and more extreme day by day.
