    4.)It seems to me you either hate this guy for some reason
    5.), or you are terrified of what he can do to Obama's fading image.

    Maybe both
    1.) nope i dont
    2.) if you feel that why but i just call it a fact
    3.) I didnt slander him at all and ive seen the prove. LMAO
    what happen was is that you wanted me to provide the proof of his factual bigotry and I told you how to get it
    4.) again what "seems" to you would be false . . .
    I dont know the gut to "hate" him but i do view bigotry very lowly.
    5.) obama again? LOL this deflection didnt work the first time you tried it. DO me a favor search my history and find all my post praising obama
    wait, seems like if I thought like you i could call this slander with no proof lol
    you are smarter and better than this

    Just like how gravity isn't an election issue. Not believing in it would be.

    If a candidate does is unable to accept evolution (or gravity, or homosexual marriage, as in the case of Ben Carson) then that is a big red mark in my book.
    We know, the debate is settled. What does a pediatric neurosurgeon know anyways?

    The fact is his beliefs are not unique, and he probably knows more about the science of evolution than you do.

Being first only happens one time - after that, the shine and novelty of the accomplishment wears off.
    again you are welcome to that but i dont see it on any logical level at all

    IMO if there is a great candidate that comes out and happens to be black in 2016 I dont think race hurts him any more or any less because of Obama . . . .

    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    4.)Being a leader means more than getting along with people who agree with you, it means getting along and getting the best out of those who don't.
    5.) And to do that you need to respect them.
    6.) Obama does not, he sneers and attacks those who disagree with him
    7.) the same way you attacked this guy, calling him a bigot without proof.

    Any monkey can smear, as you and he have, but how many can take **** like Netanyahu and then compliment his adversary as he did Obama.

    That's leadership, that adulthood, that balls, all of which are lacking in Obama....the petulant little baby who has to demean to be seen to be great
    1.) dont plan on giving up engineering i love it, doesnt change anythign though Ben had ZERO chance based on his out front bigotry
    2.) true
    3.) uhm this isnt "my" opinion its what got him elected twice, that fact has nothing to do with me
    4.) I agree
    5.) I also agree
    6.) again this opinion doesnt change how he got elected
    7.) i didnt attack him at all, i called him what he is by definition sorry that fact bothers you but facts dont change based on your feelings

    They tragically are, Rangel just picked a fight with Netanyahu, IIRC. Thankfully none are voting for president.

    Well, see, that's just the point - you make it for me. You acknowledge it will take a "great candidate" for race not to be an issue. I agree. Great, unfortunately, seldom comes along.

I just don't think its possible for a man with literally no political or economic experience to jump to the most powerful position in the world, where those two skills are paramount, and govern effectively. I'm confident he's an extremely competent neurosurgeon, but those skills that he actually has the experience and training with aren't going to be helpful as President.
    as a reporter I never plaid the big league of Washington, not that I wanted to. I did cover Canada's Parliament in an interesting time, and three provincial legislatures, Quebec, Saskatchewan and BC. In that time I have seen greatness wither in the back benches, strive to be what they were called on to be only to fade away, and take the run. risk it all and go for a job where you can change things.

    I suspect I have seen a hundred men, maybe 35 women who I would say were great and a viable leader...all of whom never got near the reins of power they should have had.

    A man named Robert Stanfield was the greatest prime minister Canada never had, a man whose ideas became law years later. He was forgotten for two reasons, he ran twice against a sexy rock star, and he dropped a football he had caught fifteen times just when a photog snapped the picture.

    Another was a funny little man, the son of a protestant preacher named Preston Manning, as if there could be a more Canadian name. He had a squeaky little voice, a bad hair do, and coke bottle glasses and ran against the most corrupt regime in modern history. He never made to Prime Minister either but he helped force the toughing of banking regulations years ahead of the '08 crash while literally driving the government ape **** to bring down the deficit.

    In there is a hallmark ditty about greatness and shining though, but the fact is, our prejudices prevent the best cream from rising to the top.
