    Not a bad idea. We could fill the empty hole Obama left.

    So you support personal attacks on Mitt Romney's wife?

    From Merriam Webster:

    self–made adjective \ˈself-ˈmād\ : made rich and successful by your own efforts
    CloseStyle: MLA APA ChicagoFull Definition of SELF-MADE
    : made such by one's own actions; especially : having achieved success or prominence by one's own efforts <a self–made man>


    Lots of people's parents paid for their college (including mine). Nobody is deemed a success because he graduated from college. You may want to read up on what the man did after college, which had nothing to do with what base he was born on, or who paid for his college degree.

    I never said that, I was simply pointing out Grant's usual tendency to go off the handle and accuse liberals of engaging ONLY in personal attacks (I don't think the person who posted that about Ann Romney was even a liberal), while thoroughly ignoring when his squad does it.

    And Ann Romney's "dignity of work" line was pure horse****.

    Mitt Romney could definitely shake some things up, but calling Jeb Bush or Chris Christie is probably the most logical option due to the fact that Hillary's base of liberals will be extremely powerful & shaking it up will be the way for Republicans to win 2016.

    Interesting. Grant responded to my post pointing out how ignorant the personal attacks on Mitt Romney's wife were. He posted this:

    This is what good people are up against these days. The Romney's don't even have a blemish on their past. No drug use, no consorting with terrorists, no God Damn America, no political crony capitalism, but they are the ones who are always under personal attacks. Nothing to do with policies, it's just personal.


    I missed the mention of liberals being the only ones who engage in personal attacks.

    You countered with something about the "poor persecuted Republicans".

    I would think your post wasn't partisan except for the fact it read as a counter partisan attack on Grant's post, which was in response to my post about Ann Romney. No mention of political parties from me, or Grant.
