    Exactly. People looked at the issues at the time and, though they may have disagreed on some of them, they didn't focus so much on extraneous issues that had nothing to do with governing the country. They didn't worry about a dog carrier or high-school hi-jinks such as we saw, to everyone's shame, in the last election.

    They weren't Red States or Blue States then -they were Americans and voted on what they thought would be best for their country.

    All of us do that, including politicians. I doubt we would someone who didn't change their opinions over time. Barrack Obama certainly changed his but this was never exploited by the Republicans or, of course, the media. The questions should always be, who would be best at managing the country? After that everything is politics. The answer, given the candidates qualifications and experience, should have been clear

    What is and isn't, even reality and truth does not matter. What matters is the perception the voters have of a candidate. How a voter perceives a candidate or even an issue, that is how they will vote or determine whether they will support or oppose any particular issue.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Those were pretty much my favorite parts as well. I really think Romney needs to take another shot at it. Especially when the RNC is fractured and pretty much leaderless.

    Yes, the Clintons as sharecroppers.

    She and her staff must be laughing at their supporters when they think up this stuff. There seems to be no limits as to what their party members might believe, nothing to crazy. She probably regrets not coming come up with the "Hope and Change" slogan, despite every politician since elections began making the same promise. They are incapable of embarrassment.

    Yes, politicians say that perception is reality and that's what they go for. So if they want to portray Mitt Romney as a spoiled rich kid out of touch with the American people, that\s what they 'll do. And if Hillary Clinton can convince voters that she is a struggling mother trying to make ends meet and keep her family together, that's what she'll do.

    Mitt Romney came up with a quite thorough North American energy plan, which is so important to America's future, but the MSM focused on his haircut, or some silly thing. Maybe we really do get the governments we deserve.

    I have long ago said that I believe Hillary will win if she gets the dem nomination. In fact I believe we have become such a dependent nation that until there is a catastrophic collapse, I dont see a republican winning the White House again.

    That being said...I laugh my ass off at the prospect of Hillary Clinton championing womens causes and trumpeting the "War on Women" argument.
