    None taken.

    Good question. I myself am not partisan, but I feel that I always vote for the person whom I think is best candidate for the job. For example I live in Texas: I voted for Obama in November but I also for voted Republican John Cornyn as our senator.

    I consider myself very liberal because I took a political aptitude last year and it said I was "very liberal." But I still have some conservative views.

    I want fairness basically. Like a good football game, I want there to be relative equality and competition. I also don't want the GOP to lose its glow.

    But honestly, let's say Obama goes 8 years in office. I can't think of any good (and young) Dems now that would be able to win in 2016. I see more of that on the Reps side, so I would want a better balance of power within the next 5 to 10 years.

    That pretty much hit's the proverbial nail on the head. I think we are done now.

    But go ahead, Dems, keep up the lying. Republicans have a far better track record of putting minorities in key cabinet positions than Democrats.
    Republican voters don't though.

    Just sayin'.....

    Oh he's a lot more conservative than GWB. But he's pro-affirmative action, and some have concerns about his stand on the 2nd ammendment. I've never been able to figure out whether he's pro-life or pro-choice, but I s'pose a lot more info will be forthcoming.

    (I wish I knew how to do mult quotes because there's another post I wanted to respond to).

    Off topic: Is anyone else annoyed by the word Negro in all these ads on DP? I seriously can't be the only one. Of course, I can see where it's not as annoying as the GOP electing a man who happens to be black. [/sarcasm]

    So you think it has NOTHING to do with qualifications and the fact that there are relatively FEW blacks who agree with the Republican platform and it's somehow a racism issue; how profound.

    I don't mind all the ads, but don't you think the "Negro" stuff is a bit offensive?

    I don't see the ads so I can't see the context. I would guess that they are trying to be provokative. The only time I see that word used now is to be offensive. So odds are, it is offensive.
