    I can't stand any conservative being in office, I don't see where the color of his skin has to do with anything, why do you?

    Sorry must have missed it. All I saw was your comment that simply said...only need a pattern and NOT permanent.

    That's contrary to the American Psychological Assoc. It says patterns are ENDURING...there is a difference, no?

    He's going to be asked questions about homosexuality because he's made it clear he's against it. Same with evolution. Walker has played it smarter by generally avoiding those subjects.
    So you think asking a candidate for the highest office in the land a question on a topical issue is "Got cha"(sic)?

    The Republican Party needs Ben Carson. The two Republicans capable of defeating the leftists are Ben Carson and Scott Walker. They would make a great team.

    Carson:
    "You know Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,"
    and this quote which he supposedly quoted Lenin, but Lenin never said:

    He declared: 'Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the Socialized State.'"
    also:

    “I think most people when they finish that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for ISIS.”

    ~Ben Carson, claiming the AP History curriculum will cause students who learn about civil disobedience in this country to join a violent terrorist group,
    and:

    “My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society, and no group — be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn’t matter what they are — they don’t get to change the definition.”
    Anyone who thinks this guy has a chance to be POTUS just isn't paying attention. Thankfully he has no chance. He lackscommon sense. He's too deeply embedded by his religious inspired fear to be able to make rational, sensible decisions outside of the medical field.

    Homosexuality and evolution are topical issues?

    Gruber was being too kind.

    Certainly they are. Did you not know that evolution and the teaching of it are issues in many states, and did you not know that SSM for example is a hot issue that is going before the Supreme Court later this year? That kinda makes them topical issues.

    So the teaching of evolution is a State issue? Then why pester a Presidential candidate?

    Then SSM will be decided by the Supreme Court and the issue settled. Where's the problem?

    Why not talk of important national and international issues rather than trivializing the process? Is the left still interested in what sort of underwear a candidate wears?

    Wait, first you say they are not topical, then when shown they are topical, you move the goalpost? Why not just admit you where wrong? And both issues can be effected at a federal level. Just one very quick example, SSM will probably be finally decided by SCOTUS, but could be overturned by a later SCOTUS, which the next president will be picking nominees for, or a constitutional amendment, which the president will certainly weigh in on.

    If you want to be a serious candidate for president, you have to accept that the pressi s going to ask you questions. Crying about it just makes you look weak.
