    My opinion hasn't changed since last month, but his chances of winning seem to have improved some.

    Which is self-contradictory considering you have 5,579 posts on an internet message board dedicated to the topic of "politicians and political drama." Are you planning on leaving us or just scratching a masochistic itch?

He's like the idiot who files for bankruptcy a couple years after winning the lottery because he was so incredibly inept at handling his finances that he managed to waste all that money and have nothing to show for it.

    Then we get into Obama's lawlessness. He laundered over $500 million in taxpayer funds through Solyndra to one of his biggest financial donors. He stole Chrysler from it's American owners and debt holders and fire-sold it to Italy to keep his union voters happy. Despite a congressional law forbidding US lobbying for abortion overseas, Obama's administration spent millions in tax dollars to ensure that Kenya's new constitution supports abortion. His justice department funneled weapons to Mexican drug lords which were used to kill our border agents. His justice department dropped the voter intimidation case against the black panthers, but sued pro-lifers for standing too close to the clinic.

    He is a racist, a lawbreaker, and his incompetence has stalled an economic recovery for three years now. He has more gaffes than Bachmann, Perry and Cain combined. He has embarrassed himself and our country in front of almost every world leader he has met and he has done great harm to some of our longest standing international relationships.

    He is managing to stay on Bush's schedule for bringing our troops home, but at the same time has invaded Libya and Uganda, solidifying our role as the world's police.

    I'm sorry, I can't see why anyone would vote for him. And with all do respect to some of my fellow conservatives here, you would have to be absolutely stupid to stay home next november given the choice between Obama and ANY GOP candidate running from Romney to Johnson to Paul To Gingrich. I would vote for half the Democrats out there over Barack Obama. It pains me to say, but I would vote for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama. I disagree with her 100%, but at least she displays the slightest bit of competence.
    Judging from the content and those who "like" the words of wisdom from Friday......
    A little truth and less spin would help.
    Friday do you have any good source for these allegations ?
    And I do NOT mean Rush or Glenn or any other right wing extremist.

    I realize it's not currently a popular position, but I tend to think the same way about voting for a 3rd party candidate (for President) as a way of "sending a message". The message should be sent during the primaries. If you can't sway the party that most closely represents your beliefs, then throwing your vote to a 3rd party is an act of showmanship that ignores one's responsibility. It's like saying "if I can't get the job I want I won't go to work". Do all you can in the primary - sway the party your way if you can - then vote for one of the 2 candidates that has a chance of winning.

    Vote. Talking is not the same as actually taking part.

    I'm leaving my opinion regarding this topic, if you somehow hadn't noticed. Our political system is a joke, and I'm disinclined to vote for either candidate.

    I'll be voting for President Barack Obama!!! I share his vision of America, I feel he has been honest in his attempt to run this country, and feel he will be able to do more the next four years when re-election won't be a factor in his policies. I think he could have gotten more done if he hadn't run into brick wall, after brick wall with the GOP.

    Same here. I don't see a republican with a viable shot at winning that I would consider.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Nobody. ****'em all, **** the dunces in Congress.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
