    Yes......the democrats are brutal on opposition research. If he pulled a girl's pigtails in third grade, we will hear about it. However you can pretty much tell how much they have by how they start out. I think if they had anything really devastating, they would have used it as he was taking on the civil service labor unions and fighting off the recall effort.

    I imagine his grades are okay. I think he's hiding something else....perhaps behavior, perhaps organizations or groups he may have belonged to which would be embarrassing to him now.

    Really? The boy ain't got no love for America?

    Where is Walker's: "THIS IS MY VISION FOR AMERICA! These are what I believe to be successful plans to fix some of the things I consider to be hardships on America!"

    Geeezzzzusss Gawd...what a crock of ****ing ****!
    I think Obama's loyalties are fair game. He started off his first term going on an international apology tour. He cannot seem to form the words "radical Islamic terrorism" He is defensive in regards to Islam to the point where he delves back to the crusades and tells us not to get on our high horse. And there is the matter of his attending radical reverend Jeremiah Wright's church for 10 years.

    There are two tactics at play here and neither is very bright. IF, and I say IF an opposition candidate has real baggage, you hold on to it and see how far he gets, then drop the bomb.

    Here they are attacking out of the gate, on petty insignificant issues on all candidates, apparently to undermine faith in all the Republican party. A very, very stupid tactic when you are trailing.

    They have always been sore losers and now, after last November and Obama's growing list of severe weaknesses, thousands of lies, fabrications and utterances being continuously exposed, they are in panic mode. They have no viable candidate and those sniffing at the possibility are simply not presidential timber.

    About a year after Obama was elected and these boards were filled with leftist arrogance, I advised the chickens would come home to roost. Payback is just beginning, the Senate is not done investigating the IRS scandal, I suspect the majority, having been beaten and trashed by Harry "smash mouth" Reid are going to be less than cordial about ramming stakes into the Obama administration and the Democratic party itself and the dregs who occupy chairs in congress.

    The Democrats in their strutting arrogance forgot the first rule of politics...."they" can shoot back.

    Now, with no prospects, no forwards, no game plan, they see the opposing team, bigger, stronger, smarter skating at them in a 5 on 3 rush and all they can do is yell insults at them.

    It took the 2014 midterms for the left to realize and accept how badly they were damaged by the 2010 midterms, and it went a lot deeper then just losing control of the house of representatives. They lost the control of the majority of state legislatures as well, giving the republicans the majority of gerrymanding power for the first time in over five decades. The legislature in my own state went republican for the first time since Ulysses S Grant was president in the late 1800s. The republicans have a majority in the house of reps bigger then they have had in over 70 years. About the only bright spot the democrats can claim is that more republican senate seats will be up for grabs in 2016.
    Unfortunately for them, the obamacare chickens will be coming home to roost by then.

If I had my ruthers when seeing a doc, I'd prefer an ologie/chem undergrads that went on to med school than an english undergrad, but thats just me.

    I see medical professionals who have gather a body of knowledge that usually involves undergrad work...might possibly be skill/practice enhancing. But that's just me.

    If the undergrad drop out works for you...groove.
    You are equating politics and business administration with MEDICINE?

    How about we get just a little bit real and jump off the Obama panic wagon.....it does not take genius to get elected. We have ample proof of that with Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Harry "smash mouth" Reid and his nuclear option, and of course Hillary, the queen of average stupid. You do not need a science degree nor rocket science....

    This is the most amazingly paranoid and desperate thread I have seen in Obama's time. and there has been a lot of gutter desperation. A governor who has said he is taking a look at running, still TWO YEARS away and we have over 400 opinions offered on his college education amid lies, exaggerations and half truths. Outright lies about the unemployment rate, his record and so forth and it hasn't even started.

    Clearly the Democrats, their supporters have nothing to offer. They are so bereft of content in talent and policy all they can do is hammer negatively on every candidate who surfaces no matter how minor it may be.

    If I go shopping for a stereo and the sales clerk tells me all about the defects of the other brands and never mentions the positives of his own, I always figure he has nothing to offer.

    I don't see any threads offering that kind of advice, no one saying Hillary is smarter, or Warren has a PHD in basket weaving, or that Joe Biden is a genius with vast experience with running a government......

    Clearly they have nothing to offer and know it...their only hope is creating fear in the alternative

    I agree with the caveat that they are only beginning to learn what all that means.

    The tactics they are using are the complete opposite of what they should be doing..

    "we know we are right" is NOT something you tell voters the day after they spanked you ...hard. The attitude of the party is arrogance. We know, you don't and we sneer at anyone who disagrees with us. They fail to remember the **** kicking THEY handed Republicans or that Obama declared war when he named Republicans "enemies"

    The vote, as I insisted at the time, was not merely a condemnation of congress as the liar in chief has been insinuating, but a rejection of the Democratic party itself. All of it. Not just the stupid policies like amnesty, nor Obamacare specifically, but the doings, the attitude, nuclear options and Harry Reid's school yard bully name calling. It was a wake up call, one which went unheeded.

    Instead, it seems the Democratic tactic now is only one of bashing even the most remote hopeful well enough that over-the-Hillary looks acceptable as an alternative.

    Greetings, F&L.

    I don't think it will work, judging from the last midterm, and I still don't agree that Hillary will even run, but time will tell. There's a lot of baggage to be overcome there, and after eight years of one party, the voters are usually ready for a change, and this time they demand to see some improvements in their personal pocketbooks - which usually trumps everything else, IMO!

    I believe we are on the cusp of a sea change...

    I also agree that Hillary running is a long shot. She is old, looks old, her campaign is tired and they have no platform....just lots and lots of money and political capital. More than Obama? That remains to be seen as both factions [they are at war] will try to own the next in line.

    The problem is, there isn't one. Unless they can find a credible outsider, like a governor with experience and success, they will be looking at wilderness.

    My gut tells me that the vote will favor integrity. As in 1980, the country has been through an ordeal, that one was two years of Nixon/Ford and four years of Jimmy the loser. Here we have eight years of primarily bitter political fighting and 15 years of war, growing worse by the day. As then a nation turned instinctively to integrity, Reagan had a proven track record of doing what he said he would do, as a student protest leader, union leader, governor and then president.

    And interesting fact I uncovered years ago that more people voted for Reagan than supported his policies.....1980 was an election about trust. I think 2016 will be as well...

    This just means that they will have to just make something up, and their base will believe it. Think Bush AWOL or the larest NBC crap. The truth only matters when they want it too, and their base is just fine with that. Look how they post here: Was there a valid point made? Never mind that, they will discount the source, often to the extreme. "Wait, the link is from Fox News? Well everybody knows it must be the black matter of truth then, and we will find the very suggestion to be the single funniest thing to ever happen, in fact I am right this moment ROTFLMAO pissing myself and losing control of my bowels at the meer suggestion". But as we saw with the Bush story, Bill Clinton, Brian Williams, etc., truth means nothing if it interfers with the agenda. Conversely, a terror attack can be explained away by workplace violence and obscure videos, because, you know, THAT seems legit. And such a juvenile tactic will not be questioned as long as it forwards the agenda. This is why conversation here breaks down so quickly andsubjects just swirl around the bowl with no resolution. There is no such thing as an honest progressive. The agenda, given even neutral scrutiny, fails every time. The only way to perpetuate the ideology is to dismiss the true purpose (with a nod and a wink) with the willful deception of the True Believers.
