Then again Mitt Romney was 1st in his college class (he was top of his class at Stanford as well, but married during his mission and then transferred to BYU) and was top of his class at the Harvard B school as well as graduating from Honors from HLS.

    If academic achievement was the issue in 2008, Romney had no peers.
    Romney married after his mission.....
    I could have voted for Mitt, but the GOP decided to promote the old geezer instead. I could have voted for McCain back in his day, but the GOP promoted the young dope, Bush. Timing is everything, and the GOP is out of sync in a big way.
    I doubt the evangelicals will ever accept Mitt, regardless of his achievements. Too bad that the religious right is so wrong about so many things...bigotry is strong in the GOP, regardless of their denial....

    you are probably right about the bible thumping brain dead

    If they were so sure about God they should vote for whom is best on earth while on earth and save the other crap for heaven.

    bigotry is just as strong in the left but its a different type and the bible thumpers are merely a part of the GOP. Most of the GOP I know couldn't care less what the guy's faith is.

    ON a related side story-a gay lawyer sued the best law firm in Cincinnat for being denied a partnership. He claimed it was because he put down his boyfriend as his firm supplied insurance as a beneficiary. The firm's official position was that the attorney spent alot of time doing pro bono or working on gay causes to the detriment of billable hours. The firm is the home of the original Senator Taft .

    So one day, I ran into a very senior partner at a club and since he was a close friend of my late father, I figured I could get an honest answer from him (by then the lawsuit had been thrown out on a Rule 56 motion). I asked him if the man had been fired for being gay/ The old man looked over his trifocals smiled and said

    Son-If that boy was as good a lawyer as all his ACLU friends said he was, he could be having sex with a giraffe in my office chair and I would have made him Partner.

    Hardly a bible thumper but a prominent Republican.

    Generally vote DEM? Bull....
    Wall Street has almost no democrats when it comes time to vote. They know where the lower taxes come from, and it ain't the DEMS.
    Wall Street voters are not far right, that term belongs to the sheep that worship at the alter of obscene wealth for the priviledged few, a wealth that they themselves will likely never see. The sheep will vote GOP to save themselves a few hundred dollars without realizing that they save those they worship millions.....
    The far right are gullible, being taken for a ride.....

Likewise politicians...they may start out with honorable intent, but the opportunities for corruption are many, and those with ethics are few....
    As for my being a moderate, don't worry about it, I almost always vote conservative....but I will never vote for the ubercons, the far right selfish greedy corporate/business whores. I have plenty of money, more than many of the "conservatives" I know. They may know how to earn, but they don't know how to spend conservatively....
    And should these jobs be taken over by government?

    The broker is there to represent a buyer or seller. If a broker achieves a reputation of dishonesty, he won't be in business long.

    Politicians. It would be nice if the left ran as the people they are. This is why I respect Kucinich... he's honest about who he is and what he would like to do. He's your typical Democrat with a twist of looney tunes, but I respect him fo his honesty. He's really a lot like Obama without the thuggery, and I don't know if he's a whiner.

    As for corrupt politicians; throw them out or vote them out. I support term limits.

    Phew man... you really do got a hate on for da money people.
    Think of it this way. It's not your business how much someone makes. So why get excited over it?

    Re: Obama to Call for $50 Billion Spending on Public Works

    have you checked out the corporate donations to Obama vs McCain

    All those Jewish wall street guys are big Republicans?

    I don't know your background or where you are from originally but a quarter or so of the people I went to college with and half of my law school class has done time on wall street or mid-town firms and I don't recall a huge number of them being republicans. My law school girlfriend is a top player at Goldman Sucks and she's a dem now but wanted hillary.

    Obscene wealth-privileged few

    sounds like class warfare

    and tell me-given the Clinton-Obama tax hikes start at 200,000 tell me what you consider obscenely wealthy.

    What amazes me is how brainwashed so many people are regarding their believe in how dumb Bush is and yet they voted for Obama. Bush showed what leadership is all about and actually generated positive results whereas Obama supporters are still looking for his stash.

    Last I remember the private sector collapsed like a souffle and without some government intervention in the economy as a rule we'd be in a great depression.

    Lovely, burn the schools then.
