    You knoiw its bad for GWB's legacy when the man who once revered him and called him a "Great and Inspired world leader"....now states that he had to hold his nose to vote for him.

    At least this shows that there is hope for you Navy....We knew you'd come around sooner or later.

    Sorry, the scare mongering tactics and intimidating tactics of a man that obviously has no political principles doesn't bother me much and shouldn't you ethereal. This is the same guy that earlier in the thread was celebrating and cheering the fact that a politician pandered to his electorate and was hoping he was lying to th eir face so that he'd be more how he'd want. This is a guy that has just said he's so mindlessly brainwashed by his party that he doesn't care what they say or who they run, he will walk out there like a zombie and cast his vote while trying to intimidate everyone else like a union thug that if they don't dare agree with him then they're "voting for the other side" even though such a notion is absolutely asinine.

    Some of us actually give a crap about this country, what it stands for, and have self respect enough to have personal principles that we uphold. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. IF Palin wins and begins to damage this country as ****tily as Obama did with her legion of truth-...er, I'm sorry, birther...-followers at least I'll know that unlike some on here, I didn't cast my vote and say "I support this person doing this". You will to Ethereal.

    Are we still talking about Brown?

    Re: GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset

    Yep, let me connect the dots. Someone was talking about this catapulting Brown to the Presidency, others started saying how Palin would be the better choice, others said no she wouldn't, others said well you are voting for Obama if you woudn't vote for her, others said that's idiotic. So its talking about Brown in the scope of the Presidency. Its page 14 with 500+ posts, minor thread drift is hardly uncalled for. If you want it to be simply about Brown wining hte seat and nothing else this would've been closed and locked 250+ posts ago most likely.

    I think the talk of Brown for President is far, far to premature and I'd be more interested in seeing how he actually governs first and if its the same as he campaigned. I'd also would have issue with him experience wise. That said, he'd be leagues more likely at this point to get my vote than Palin.

    It's all academic, Brown needs to have a chance in the Senate, and Palin is at least as prepared as Obama to be president. I like Palin, but I don't thinks she's ready yet. But if I had to chose between Palin and Obama, there would be no doubt I'd vote for Palin.

    But it is good for W's legacy when the man who attempts to follow in his footsteps copies his foreign policies(for the most part), and loses this Massachusetts election. People are starting to realize they were unaware how good they had it.

    The fact that Obama is such a circus clown does wonders for W's legacy, this vote quite telling.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Why? So she can sound like some machine made Vassar Graduate?
    Ya know if you listen to Hillary she says, "and a" constantly. Very annoying. She almost got to be President. She seems smart, but she has a predatory way of acting, that Palin doesn't have, so I'm definitely going with Palin.

    Would you be saying this if she had Michelle Obama's "negro dialect"?
    Really it should be the content of what they are saying, and Palin seems a little guarded right now. If she can shake that, she might go all the way and become a Senator, is what I'm hearing.

    What? The Messiah is PERFECT! How dare you say His teleprompter reading skills are declining.
    He's a trainwreck.

    Furthermore, if you went to your GP with the flu, do you know what he would recommend 99 to 100% of the time? Bed rest, fluids, and maybe some acetaminophen to bring down a fever. Know what contains acetaminophen? Nyquil.

    The fact that your cousin got a very bad case of the flu doesn't mean anything about whether it would have turned out differently had he gone to a doctor when he first got the symptoms.
    So I guess every exact detail is necessary for you to understand a point.

    OK, my cousin didn't have insurance and got sick. He tried to ride it out, taking over the counter medicine. He got sicker and sicker until his wife took him to the emergency room. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital where he spent X number of days (only a couple if I remember correctly) and was then sent home to continue to recover. His bill was approx. 10k.

    He has been paying off his bill for 2 years. He was out of work nearly 2 months. Who paid for his lack of productivity? We all did.

    Is there some evidence that using emergency rooms is cheaper than preventative care?

    I always thought "greedy" was typically directed at people who take more than they need.
