    I said he did, and it was taken out of context and used as a faux insult belly hooed by the left.

That is the only reason I volunteer to teach people how to can and dry foods for future use, and CJ, the classes are getting so large that it might become impossible to help everyone that wants to learn, unless more people volunteer. Math and Engineering are important, but it doesn't feed hungry little kids when there aren't enough jobs to earn money, and the Moms I teach are so happy to learn that some have cried. Even the poor worry about the future, and what it might be like for them and their families when government isn't there to help them. We've been very fortunate so far, but our $17 trillion dollar...and climbing...debt will one day catch up with us, I fear, because a rise in interest rates will take money away from those that need help. Sad...
    Good afternoon Lady P - hope all is well

    You're right, of course. But the political class is confident that pushing the problem down the road will let them carry on until they retire and it becomes someone else's problem, namely your childrens' problem. My generation - the baby boomers - is the most selfish and self-centered generation ever to live and I'm ashamed to be part of it.

    I wouldn't say that was a single game changer but it didn't help. I personally think the get out the democrat vote efforts by republican officials in swing states by making it just a tad more difficult for democrats to vote did more to hurt Romney and especially fired up minority voters.

    Plus in an era of downsizing, compensation cuts and outsourcing jobs to the third world while CEOs got 7 figure bonuses and golden parachutes, Romney simply came across as having his heart on the side of corporate America and the culture of corporate greed while pandering to average income workers who wake up every day worried about their financial security. Meanwhile, despite missteps Obama came across as having his heart with average people trying to put food on the table, send their kids to college, not have the credit card companies arbitrarily raise interest rates on the credit cards or banks sock it to them with penalties for accidentally spending to much with their debit cards when the banks KNEW they didn't have enough in the accounts but authorized the transaction anyway just so they could wipe out their next paycheck when the bills start to bounce.

    Hurricane Sandy also hurt Romney a little as well because it took the news off of Benghazi right before election day, while Obama did a decent job at responding to the disaster, something Christie even felt compelled to truthfully acknowledge.

    Many of the baby boomers had parents that suffered during the Great Depression, and it was probably the parents' desire that their children would never have to do without the many things they did, so they gave them as much as they could. Did this spoil them? Maybe, but it was a natural reaction to try and make their children's lives as comfortable as they could, I guess. I do worry that many, but certainly not all, boomers don't seem to have the same concern for their children and grandchildren, though - look at the debt load they are leaving for their descendants, and yet unborn children, to grapple with.

    I worked outside a little today - it was a beautiful day, and I'm ready for a lot more to come finally!

    I know, but it was an off the cuff comment. Not like when Clinton pointed his finger at us and said "I did not have sexual relations with that woman". Then got busted and out pokered by an intern.

    No. Doubt that anyone who voted for Obama did so because of that comment and doubt that it motivated anyone to vote. Other issues.

    What did it for me was his binders full of women. What a cruel, cruel man to take a bunch of women, zap them with his special republican miniaturizing ray gun and stuff them all into a bunch of binders.

    I think I recal reading in a psychology magazine that people who start off with this sort of behavior often escaslate to more heinous acts,so I didn't vote for him.
