    nah. I'm pretty sure once I turn 35 I'll be having to explain to both parties why I can only allow one of them to nominate me for President, and so they 're going to have to play rock paper scissors.....

    this is pretty much the same thing as above, but check

    Don't see how it's a check, since he actually did it as opposed to fantasizing about it.

    if you read his biographies (of which I will fully admit i have not read the whole pieces - only skimmed through in a bookstore for an hour or so), he is very candid that the search for power and the desire for power is what drove him to go to Harvard. that's why I put it as a check.

    Okay, I held off as long as I could.

    It would appear that you believe that the President suffers from a mental illness. Correct?

    I don't know if I would call it a mental illness. I would definitely call him self-absorbed and haughty, and I would probably call him narcisistic. The man constantly talks about himself, and he constantly talks about himself in a way that is laudatory beyond reality. I don't know if I would say it pushes into mental illness territory - he is far too high functioning for that.


    But it is a weakness. And one I hope someone much smarter than I is planning to exploit in 2012.

    I am glad that Huckabee is not running, he is as phony as a not two, but a three dollar bill. This man will tell you anything you want to hear. He should of been a car salesman.
    Catch me if you can.

    I have never Obama say he was "the decider" like President Bush did.

    True. But that's a description of the job, not the man. Obama is also "the decider" (at least, when he finally gets around to it) - it's why he deserves the credit he does for the OBL raid. However, Bush also never claimed that his mere nomination was enough to cause the oceans to cease their rise.

    But Bush did believe he was ordained by Jesus to be president.
