    Bottom line, she didn't solve any of the existing problems, didn't accomplish much of anything except log quite a number of air miles (Rice traversed a total of 1,006,846 miles, Clinton a mere 956,733), but then, she didn't embarrass herself either, well with the exception of reducing the security levels for the mission in Benghazi.

    I think you'd agree that this would be an characterized as unremarkable.
    "Unremarkakable"? yeah, sure: boring is a better word. S'sOS have always been boring; nothing new there. But Hillary is far from a failure. And - think about it - "foreign policy" is another check on the presidential resume.... (I knew that's what the mission was when Obama appointer her. I wasn't impressed then or now).

    Yeah. OK. Got it.

    Guess I've run into some 'really out there' people, and want to give them the respect they deserve before wading in.

    Of course Democrats lie all the time, but it's not up to them anymore. Keystone will get passed and it will get built.

    Oh yeah?

    When? and by whom?

    The last ditch was made this week and the Owe shows no signs of relenting...
    so, please, with your great expertise in Canadian politics, the Canadian oil industry, China's growing needs, please indicate just how that's all going to happen and how old we are when it does.

    We are two to five years away from a green light, another two for advanced engineering and ramp up to build the pipe, five years or more of construction...

    When will the US say yes, and what will be the situation then, especially since a northern alternative is in the works.

    The word among the pipeline industry is Obama will never say yes, nor will Clinton..so they're going elsewhere

    I suggest you stick with your Canadian politics, in our system it's not up to Obama or Clinton when Congress overrides a veto by the president. In this case after the Republicans take control of the Senate there are plenty of Dems that will go along with the Republican Senate to override Obama's veto. In fact the bill now may have the votes to override Obama's veto if he veto's it. Keystone is a done deal weather Obama or Clinton like it or not.

    What's with this injured tone? Reason why the pipeline got rejected was because your Prime Minister failed to live up to his promise of making the energy companies invest in long term improvements in the pipeline's safety and environmental friendliness. They didn't feel like they should have to, and he couldn't or didn't want to spend the political capital to force them. So instead he pulled a 180 and started issuing threats about selling oil to China and attempted to bully the Obama Administration into accepting a deal that didn't reflect the interests of the population that elected him.

    You guys are 100% the bad guys on this issue.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The only people who lie more than Democrats are Republicans!

    And the reason that politicians lie is that because the other team does it our team can do it. Our morality is relative to the morality of others rather than a responsibility of all of us.

    Self rule requires integrity to maintain itself. If we can't be honest with ourselves and honor the rules we've made for ourselves how can we possibly survive in relative freedom? We can't. Because at some point the cheaters will win power over us, with the blessing of at least some of us.

    Please explain how the exit polls reflected this. I must have missed that. All the exit poll results I read, scrolling across the bottom of the screen seem to suggest the opposite. Ie: SSM, marijuana legalization, etc. All those "liberal" type issues seem to be supported by the majority of American voters. What were you referring to? Thanks in advance. Have a great weekend.

    How did you come to such a conclusion? (see what I bolded)
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
