    Barack Obama garnered more votes than “ANY” Presidential candidate in this country’s history, 69,456,897 votes! He got more than 7.4 million more votes than Bush’s best showing in 2004, in which Bush only won by 2.4% with 62,040,610 votes.

    7.4 million!

    According to the U.S. Census...
    U.S. population in July 2008 is estimated at.... 303,824,640.
    U.S. population in July 2004 was................... 293,655,404.

    Now bear with me. We subtract the smaller number from the larger number and we get a population increase, between 2004 and 2008, of: 10,169,236.

    I don't know what kind of adjustment you want to make here buuuut, this shows that with his 7.4 million vote winning margin Obama picked up approx. 72% of the population increase from '04 to '08. And he won by 5% "more" than Bush did.

    That's HUUUUUGE!

    In other words... Obama won by a lot more than Bush did...
    especially "when population growth is figured in".

    Ain't numbers grrrrrreat? They really help to keep people honest and stops them from using failed rhetoric to explain away their losing arguments.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Bam = 69,456,897

    Bush = Bam – 7,4 00, 000 = 62,056897

    Bam = 69,456,897/303,824,640.= 0.22861 x100%=22.861% of population

    Bush= 62,056897/293,655,404 = 0.2113 x100% =21.13% of population

    22.861-21.13=1.731

    Bam got 1,731% of population more than Bush,

    paying how much more for each vote ?____________ somebody fill in the blank, please

    having how much more agitation in the media?___________ nobody can fill in the blank


    If to bring money spent and media support to a common denominator Bam is in a total loss in comparison to Bush.

    Bush did mistakes…and he was able to make efforts to correct them. The way war in Iraq/afganistan was conducted was his loss and he corrected it and it seems like we are at victory in iraq, the intelligence report posted by don1 says about taking AlQuada down by a half.

    His bail out is one of most unforgivable blunders, but it seems if he was still the POTUS he would change and correct. BTW why the media has silenced him down, like he is dead, right or wrong?

    BTW why the media has silenced him down, like he is dead, right or wrong?
    BTW why the media has silenced him down, like he is dead, right or wrong?
    BTW why the media has silenced him down, like he is dead, right or wrong?

    What does he have to say about Bam’s stimulus? Bam has no ability to see or correct mistakes. Bam is a total loss. All he can do is - keep on going, and going, and going … on the same path...like that rabbit by Duracell.

    YouTube - My Duracell Drumming Rabbit gone crazy
    I would like to say it is all in math. But I cannot. It is just a 4th grade arithmetics, - Bams do not rise even to the level of the 4th grade of an elementary school.

    What a loss.

    Thank you for more accurately proving my point.

    As far as thinking that Bush would change anything in his Presidency... don't kid yourself. The man can't even admit he made one mistake during those disastrous 8 years. He wouldn't pardon that traitorous liar Libby even with Cheney breathing fire down his back! He would nev-ver change one single decision he ever made.

    Admitting a mistake and then changing it takes strength. It takes courage. It takes integrity. Bush is too much of a coward.

    "extreme partisan conservatives... need to be wiped off the face of the earth."
    Your words.

    I don't find conservatism extreme.
    I don't find partisan conservatives extreme.

    I find political executions of your opponents extreme and ridiculous.
    You on the other hand:

    and then onto the clip above about extermination.

    You have claimed socialists should be at the table, so you believe they have something of value to offer. You have some socialist tendencies, as the brunt of the Democrats elected are socialists. It's how you get all but Seven democrats voting for the latest Trillion Dollar wonder.

    von Mises called his collegues socialists, and I'd think he would see both the democrats as socialists and anyone believeing their ideas worth following to have socialist tendencies.

    That's you.

    You want them at the table.
    Or do you want to execute the Democrats and Obama?
    You called for the culling.
    Not me.

    I don't think in those terms.
    I prefer to defeat opponents at the ballot box espousing conservatism.

    JFK (R-MA) wouldn't make it to the D's table today.

    You know what. Does what you write have any meaning?
    You don't think today's democrats are socialists? LOL.
    So you don't want them at the table?


    You want the socialists at the table. You think killing off parts of the political spectrum acceptable. For what other than so we all get along and get something bipartisan done?


    LOL


    How about a crack at the following for once?
    Or are you at a loss?
    Sunk in your moment of "extremism"?
    Or is executing people for their political beliefs normal?
    Not extreme?

    So:

    1. Your theory, does it mean you play executioner to Obama?

    2. Executioner to the Democrat Caucus minus Lieberman?

    3. What is an extreme conservative?
    You want them exterminated, so what is one?

    4. Show me one instance socialism has worked.
    (You can keep buying time... keep searching... you want these failures at the table... why?)

    5. Why do you want to inculcate our society with failure?
    Because it's a Miss America Pageant thing to do?
    It feels good that we all get along?
    Are you Rodney King per chance?
    No quotes, not dice. As seems to be your style, you straw man and present nothing of accuracy. Standard fare for folks like you. And your soapboxing is getting more ridiculous in each and every post...in fact it is so irrelevant, I've stopped reading the foolishness. When you can post the quotes that prove the things you are accusing me of, then I will address your questions.

    Show the quotes or admit you were wrong. Then we can move on.
