    Heya Ockham. Yeah that part with BO explaining why he didn't use the word terrorism kind of, puts it all into perspective. Evidently BO thought there was a distinction between an act of terror or acts of terror and terrorism.

    Then he got caught in the lie.


    Either way.....after Gingrich told Romney they have no front runners. Just runners, Romney let the final straw fall. His wife isn't denying her support. Plus he says he will run Right of Bush.

    I agree, that was the only way Obama could win.

    Honestly....I have no clue yet. It's still too early in the game and too big of a question of who may or may not come out. I'm a big fan of Paul, yet at the same time don't think he'd be the best candidate at this point with our deep bench of Governors. I actually don't have anywhere near the issue with Christie as many do and am intrigued by him, but question how electable he is for unfortunate reasons (from Weight to Cowboys fan). Huckabee was someone I liked in 2008, but over the years some of the things he's been saying have largely turned me off. Very intrigued by Pence and Walker with their experience as governor. Rubio suffers the same non-executive experience issue as Paul, while also not being quite as intriguing to me politically...though I wouldn't have a big issue with him.

    I'd say right now I honestly don't have a favorite for the nomination as much as I have three candidates that are routinely talked about that I have absolutely no desire for: Romney, Bush, Carson.

    All this talk of Romney wanting to get back into the race over the past month or so has got me thinking, however, that a Bush/Romney ticket on the Republican side would be a very powerful one, one that the Democrats would be hard pressed to even come close to.
    Romney will never accept VP. He's not a #2 type of guy.

    Wait now...in THEORY he has a point here. If Obama is calling things an "act of terror", yet at times is not treating it from a law enforcement perspective as actual "terrorism", then it calls into the question of the legitimacy of the notion that when Obama suggests something is an "act of terrorism" it is equivilent ot saying it is "terrorism".

    Do you have links to verify this CJ? If so, considering that Holmes is not being charged as a "terrorist", and the incident is not being looked at legally as "terrorism", then it would definitely suggest that him using the words "act of terror" is not inherently synonymous with labeling it "terrorism". However, if you CAN'T verify this, then it begs the question as to why you made a claim that is false?

    Yeah, that's a long list of things that have been banned and / or been provided the excessively politically correct euphemisms.

    Islamic Terrorist = Freedom Fighter
    Terrorist = “kinetic military action”
    Illegal Alien = Undocumented worker

    The ridiculousness of these euphemisms abounds with the politically over-correct, and with this president and his men (and women as well).
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Or my fav.... Ft. Hood and "workplace violence".
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yeah. A <> A, We call it B, so A = B but A <> A. See?

    Never mind that 'illegal alien' is a fully legitimate legal term that accurately describes that person's legal status, and is the correct term to use, not some made up one. Heck, all of those are just made up terms.

    It might be his only way to become President, if he's not too old 10 years down the road.

    Here is the complete text of his remarks at the Colorado Shooting event:

    Full Text: Obama's Statement on Colorado Theater Shooting

    My key was on his words here: "Now, even as we learn how this happened and who's responsible, we may never understand what leads anybody to terrorize their fellow human beings like this. Such violence, such evil is senseless."

    I'll accept that I was wrong in my recollection that it was exactly those words, but it was equating that shooting to "terror".
