    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.
    Again, I am not a Democrat. If the Democrats strutted their arrogance, and I am not saying they didn't, they didn't do much of anything else. High and mighty Nancy Pelosi crowed as the Democrats ascended to power in 2006, "Impeachment is off the table." The nation elected Obama and other than saving the nation from a looming depression not much "Change" happened.

    Somehow partisanship has divided the nation to the point that partisans see the opposing party not as fellow Americans, but the enemy. We see and hear a lot of gotcha these days and not much substance.

    It's perfectly fine to ask a presumptive candidate his or her position on evolution. It's been asked of candidates for years and years. Why now is it wrong? As a voter I would find it difficult to support someone who doesn't believe in science. Does Walker? Not readily, no.
    It is reasonable to ask a basic question regarding foreign policy when a candidate with no foreign policy experience whatsoever travels to a foreign country to begin to establish his street creds.

    I'm not "the enemy" but as an American I want to hear the responses from a candidate that has far right partisans all excited. Now I wonder why so many of the people on the far right are upset about questions that have been asked of candidates for years in the past. Why is it that Walker and his supporters don't want the rest of us to know?

    To tell you the truth, the last time I saw this type of strange protective support and defense of a candidate it was in the defense of Sarah Palin, who was probably the least qualified GOP candidate to run in my lifetime. It raises red flags for me.

    No, I am not going to vote for Walker. However, I wasn't going to support GOP candidates who ran against him either. As with Palin, Walker has little chance of becoming President. If I ever think he might I'll throw some money to the other guy.

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
    Actually I wasn't equating politics/admin with medicine. I was responding to Tres about why I'd rather have a doctor who who finished undergrad program (preferably in an "biology, physiology, etc" related school or perhaps chemistry related) before beginning med school. Rand Paul dropped out of his bio/eng undergrad program at Baylor and went to Duke for medical school which didn't require students to have completed undergrad programs. It currently does,

    Actually I have an ENT whose undergrad was electrical eng. I've seen a radiologist who was an attorney in his prior professional life.

    My latest post said the following:

    Removable Mind

    I take back any positive kudos that I've been attempting to give to Scott Walker. He's a common run-of-the-mill imbecile politician.

    HEADLINE:

    Scott Walker: 'I Don't Really Know' Whether Obama Loves America

    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 ****!
    Sounds a little critical, huh? I hope folks don't get me wrong. This is a common political ploy that's used by Democrats, Republicans, etc. But my old bones are getting tired of this type of nonsense.

    To be honest FAL, I think that our political system is an irreparable FUBAR beginning with the primary system - up. I think it's a toss up between the voters and politicians as to which is the most incompetent.

    And by the way, I'm not at all an Obama fan. I'm not a fan of the Democrats...nor Republicans. Actually any specific party.

    Thanks...

    Sarah Palin?

    Protection?

    That's kind of out there and when you even raise Sarah Palin you lose me. You may not be a Democrat but you bleat like one. The socialists have to get over a second rate, failed vice presidential candidate who has been OUT of public office for as long as Obama has been president. You cannot use her as a laughing stock to hide Obama's many lies and failures. "The least qualified GOP candidate? Not even close, and certainly no where near as unqualified as Obama

    The guy is a lame duck. I don't love Obama. Not a big fan. But what he said is: ISIS is a "perversion of Islam".

    They are indeed terrorists who have "strong political motives", and who are using religion to suck in people to fight for their agenda under the guise of religion. In a region of the world who have been controlled by religious extremists...who believe their religious leaders with their life, their soul, their being...really believe that ISIS is fighting for God. What better candidates to suck into and use as a means to an end.

    ISIS leaders have been planning and building their war chest for about 25 years. They studied all of the mistake of other terrorists organizations....around the world. These folks are psychopaths with political goals. They don't give a **** about Jihad, virgins in heaven. But they need a lot of ignorant folks willing to kill themselves and others and help their organization strike fear into the minds of tens of thousands - if not hundreds of thousands in the region by using the most inhumane methods.

    The religious angle is getting a bit boring. Psychopaths don't give a **** about religion. The do give a **** about having complete control over the masses. THIS IS POLITICAL.

    F&L, so if I understand your response correctly, it's all Obama's fault. I'm not certain what Obama has to do with Walker's refusal to answer a question about evolution and a question about foreign policy. However, your answer is precisely the way Palinestas used to talk when people would address Palin's refusal to respond directly to questions.

    All I know is that I really don't know where Walker is on either of those questions - and apparently no one else knows either.

    Now we have Walker again going all wobbly responding the Guliani's statement that Obama doesn't love America.

    All 3 no answers are telling and cause me concern.

    I don't know all that much about Walker's character. I really don't know Walker's core beliefs, but I'd like to. Is Walker his own man? If Walker were to be elected would we have Walker in the White House or a Koch Brother's puppet? I think those are legitimate concerns.

    [Disclosure: My entire family, extended family and the vast majority of my friends are Christians. Most of the people I love are Christians. I was raised and baptized as a Christian. I have nothing at all against the Christian faith. I have no ax to grind, no debt to settle with Christianity. I am not a Christian, however. If I believed everything Christians believe I'd be a Christian, but I don't. I accept their beliefs and I support their beliefs, but some Christian beliefs aren't my beliefs.]

    It has been reported that Walker has strong Christian beliefs. No problem for me. But how do I know that Walker isn't some end timer who wants Christ to return in his lifetime? Fine if Walker wants to believe that, but I don't want anyone like that in the White House. How do I know Walker doesn't have dreams of being the Christian whose foreign policy ideas brings about the second coming by starting WWIII via a Christian war with Islam?

    I want to know more about the level of his beliefs. He has shied away from answering a very simple yes or no question. Even Romney answered the question head on and without pause. Even Palin answered the question. Walker refused. Does Walker hold extreme right religious beliefs? Do I want a religious extremist in the White House? No way. Never.

    Seems to me the Religious Right is attracted to Walker. Why? Does Walker want to dance around that? So far he appears to be.

    I believe we are done here.

    Where have I said this anything to do with Obama?

    Stick with demonizing Sarah Palin. It's safe ground

    I believe that Hillary wants to run so bad that she can taste it. She thinks she is entitled to it. Whether or not she runs, I think will largely depend on who the front runners are for the republican nomination. If it looks as if they will coronate Jeb Bush, she will in all likelihood run. If the GOP nominates a viable candidate like Scott Walker, she will suddenly bow out for health reasons and say she wants to spend more time with her granddaughter. I don't think she will risk humiliation.

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.
    They will make something up....however I think in 2016, the democrats may be in the same position as they were in 1980. Only the most partisan diehard lefties still see Obama as competent in either foreign or domestic policy. Even Jimmy Carter thinks he's incompetent.

    Democrat or not, you are clearly a partisan and of the left. Your lack of objectivity regarding Walker is evidence enough. You were never going to vote for him anyway....and it has nothing to do with his take on evolution or lack of a college degree.
