    Uh. It was the conservative who made something simple, hard.

    I agree that Muslims fundamentalists are a problem but this is a problem we have been addressing. Since 2001 we have been engaged on several fronts against extremism in Afghan, Libya etc and we have given more powers to MI5 to detain potential suspects and hold them for extended periods of time. Now do I think that it really matters what Scott walkers believes in? No I don't because being President you have to tow the line and I don't foresee any massive overhauls especially in regards to the separation of church and state however its still a question you have to expect in a country that is becoming more and more distant from the Church.

    Like I said just don't come over if you don't want to look stupid, aka Romney 2012.

    I went back to see what you wrote, since it sounds like you thought it was pretty profound. So I was disappointed to see that all you had posted was this: "If that's the best ya' got to criticize Scott Walker, he's got more of a chance than I thought."

    So it turns out that you didn't really say much at all, did you? But my response was pretty direct, and not too difficult to understand. But to repeat, the point of my post was not so much to criticize Scott Walker, but rather the party he represents. People who belong to today's Republican Party have to act stupid (some don't even have to act!) with regards to settled matters of science, economics, and other disciplines. Facts just aren't their friends, it seems. It's a really sad commentary on the party.

    So that was what my post was about, and I'd not think of this incident as any where near the best example for displaying the weakness of the man. Oh no, he's generated lots better material than this!

    Romney is stupid? And what? Obama is smart?

    Have you taken a close look at recent British and/or European leaders?

    The Brits can relax about the US separation of Church and State issue. I think they have enough on their minds.

    So you feel the Democrats have done a good job? In what areas?
