    What they actually do, is what matters. Hen pecking every single thing they have ever said...who cares. It was lame when dems did it to GWB and its lame now too. I mean really, did you really think that being "anti- commision" is what Obama stood for? Really? I don't think that has ever even crossed my mind when thinking about Obama stands for.

    Politicians make campaign promises to get elected. If they actually follow through with these promises, this is often accidental.

    No problem. Politicians will say anything to get elected and stay in power. We have Republicans bashing Obama on the Jones Act despite the Jones Act containing a section which explicitly permits foreign ships to help during a oil spill to bypass the law. The section effectively makes the JA not applicable to the BP incident. And we have Democrats all kinds of crazy **** blaming Cheney and Bush.

    The only thing scummier then a lawyer is a politician.

    And since a lot of politicians are lawyers, that makes them scum squared.

    Therefore, we cannot believe things that are said. So why allow Presidential campaigns at all and why is public money used to pay for candidate to go on television and write statements for the media which are LIES? Let's do away with the campaigns - save the money, and make a comparison based solely on what they've DONE and not what they say?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    So we should just accept their lies and pay it no mind because, after all, they're politicians.

    So then what's the point? Why do we even bother with this message board, or enter a voting booth?

    I can't say that I completely disagree with you, here. Only problem is that it would put the research in the hands of the voting public... a notoriously lazy group. I would prefer to see elected officials get jobs based on a public resume. When any of us "normal" folk apply for a job, we submit a resume, indicating what we have done and why we think we are qualified. I'd like to see something that simple, considering these people are supposed to be working for us.

    Blame the voters.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    None of these guys are perfect, most are far from it. Republicans, democrats, they all do it. There are many things I don't like Obama, there are some things I do. Are people really supposed to run around apologizing for every comment the guy ever made? People are fallible.

    Indeed.

    It seems that its politics as usual.

    It seems its not Hope.

    It seems its not a change from partisan politics.

    It seems its just another politician who promises a bunch, uses a lot of rhetoric, and all of it is completely empty and hollow.

    Problem is a great deal of this particular candidates campaign was based singularly upon rhetoric and little of anything else.

    I absolutely agree. Those that actually believed what a Politician said are rather foolish.

    It will be easy to pick those people out in 2 years. They'll be wearing the big "O" hats and shirts and having bumper stickers with whatever the new propoganda slogan Obama and his people plan out.
