    In all likelihood I'm younger than you.

    And? Stuff from 24 years ago is still outdated, especially regarding information.

    You're a vet, aren't you? When you were in Vietnam, wasn't up to date intel key to sorties? Or did you take off just assuming nothing had changed since the French had been there?

    Christie may not be perfect, but no POTUS has been perfect..
    Even as a retired teacher, I could still live with his anti-Union history..
    There are plenty of good GOP VP's also, like Pence of IN .

In the past, there have been passionate arguments sure, but not to the point where you don't even listen. That's where I think Obama's biggest issue is, he's in the middle of it, when he should be above the noise and serving as a CEO. And none of the candidates I've seen have what it takes to unite the country, to be a trancedant leader... we really need someone crazy like Churchill or Lincoln.

    It doesn't matter. Don't play the age card.

    This is why we have to protect ourselves from the Libbos.

    According to the AP, Clinton, Bush the second and Obama are going to attend Mandela's funeral in South Africa.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Is that so you don't have to think and cause your brain to implode from the stress?

    If I were a Republican and got to pick the VP for Christie it would be Susana Martinez of New Mexico.

    Yep, and Bush the first would probably attend if he was healthy enough to do so.

    I think your right. Mentioning of him makes me wonder about Jimmy Carter. I haven't heard a peep from him and come to think of it, we should have.

    Carter's 89 ... not sure of his health, but it's possible overseas travel isn't recommended for him anymore.
