    Walker's a governor. Even so the hatred the GOP has shown against this president is off the charts. They've accused him of everything from treason, to purposely trying to destroy the country, to being a dictator and now not loving the country. Nothing riles up the GOP base like telling them the president is trying to destroy the country they love.

    The Republicans hate the fact that especially in 2012 a black guy with diminishing popularity and in a weak economy easily beat the best the GOP had to offer. And I think they know they can't win in 2016 either.

    Hmmm


    As opposed to "enemies", "traitors", "jihadists", "terrorists"?

    How about the attacks, still, on Sarah Palin, who has been called a ****, slut, whore and other epithets

    Shall we go back to the Bush years and have a chat about what was said about him?

    I didn't say the attacks were one-way. They're not, and never have been nor will they ever be one-way. That's politics.

    I said the attacks against this president has been off the charts. He's a Muslim. He was sworn in using the Koran. He hates whites. Is/was a communist. Is/was a traitor. Is/was a dictator. Fake birth certificate. Won't say the Pledge of Allegiance. Is purposely trying to destroy the country. Is the anti-Christ. Is in the pocket of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    All politicians are attacked, but not to this level, not on this scale. When you accuse a president of treason, when you accuse him of purposely tiring to destroy the country, it's gone to far. Then you're going in dangerous territory.

    Never mind I'm new here and didn't realize who I was talking to. I just found this quote of yours concerning Obama in another thread. I don't waste my time with people like you.

    Nevertheless, they are the words of a president, and suggest strongly that his relationship with Islam may be more important than his relationship with America...

    If anything not having a degree is a plus.

    As opposed to the left wing hatred of Bush for eight years?

    Ironically, this afternoon at Vancouver Community College I see a poly sci lecture "What Hillary needs to do to restart her career?" Considering the college, it is astonishing they have already advanced to talking about recovery here, while much of the US still believes she is viable. Oops, as those students would have no vested interest either way. I may take it in.

    What does she do? The term over-exposure comes to mind, a thing that torched the rocketing career of a brilliant Conservative in Saskatchewan. Everyone likes rising stars until they don't or stop rising which is a chicken and egg thing. In this case the star has been flat lined in the US for three decades plus, a whole new voting bloc, with yet a new mindset, some are calling generation "why". And the 'rise' has come and gone twice in the time they have been voting. They have seen her as Secretary of State at a time when terrorism expanded in the middle east and responsible, indirectly, for the big chunk coming out of their wallets when they are too young to need insurance.

    So, what propelled Obama to victory against her is still unavailable to her, unless she can get through to them as a "fresh face" that will "get the country running again", the subtext of the last three congressional elections.

    All of this draws a rather defined image of what the Republicans need to do to defeat her, but not too soon. It also is a statement about how the Republicans need to own the debate, and not let the Democratic propaganda machine do it for them, as has happened lately.
    I don't know for sure how she would fare against Jeb Bush, however Jeb or someone like him that does not appeal to the mainstream conservative base is just what Hillary wants, and for that matter what the democrats want, regardless of whether Hillary is their nominee. Their biggest feat is a straight shooting populist conservative like Scott Walker. The only downside the Hillary camp sees with Jeb is they can write off the state of Florida.

    It would help you be more objective before you accuse me.
    I am being objective. I respect that you claim to be an independent. I don't doubt that you are registered that way. So am I. However your comments regarding Walker look pretty much like most partisan democrats would write. I call them as I see them.

    You'd think a man your age would appreciate the virtues of being old. I often associate age with wisdom. Wisdom usually comes from making mistakes. By the time we reach a certain age we've made a lot of mistakes. I damn sure have. Some people never learn. Hillary is probably one of them.
    What I have gained from age and wisdom is a general distrust of establishment politicians of either stripe. Some of them are political whores....and I do not meant that in a sexual sense.

    Hillary, as with so many politicians, has an greatly exaggerated sense of self. If you want my opinion, or even if you don't, I believe it goes beyond that with Hillary. I think Hillary's entire life has been an orchestrated scam. Her marriage and even her one child, IMHO, were all part of her political plan. It isn't about America, the children, civil rights, America, peace or whatever. It never has been.
    I agree...and have many times over the last few years made the point that politicians whose entire adult lives revolve around one day running for president tend to lose their minds when they fail. Hillary and Al Gore are two prime examples.

    Now, I also believe that is close to being the case with many politicians. Democrats and Republicans all to often believe that cream rises to the top. Independents believe that sh*t floats. It is my opinion that Hillary is a perfect example of why I am an Independent. If you can accept that then you may also see why I am in no way a Walker supporter. Hillary and Walker are opportunists in a cess pool of opportunists. Yes, there are others. Right now the spotlight is on them.
    I would think a true independent....at least one who dislikes establishment politicians would have a healthy dose of respect for a populist candidate like Walker....whether you agree with his politics or not. He does not play the game establishment politicians play. He does what he says he is going to do.

    And if you had been reading my posts concerning Hillary you might see me accused of using quotes out of the GOP handbook.
    But then this thread is about Walker.

    You might have also noticed - if not you will have the opportunity to see it in the future - that I have been (will be) told time and time again by members of both parties that I am throwing my vote away if I vote for a third party candidate or an independent.
    I used to feel the same way. Not now. I maintain mainstream conservative beliefs and values. If there is not a mainstream conservative candidate running, I will just skip that part of the ballot. As far as I am concerned, if I were to vote for the republican candidate merely because he has an "R" in front of his name on the ballot, I would be throwing my vote away. A candidate must earn my vote.

    I am a conservative independent. However I will point out that you are being a bit intellectually dishonest. The alleged hatred of Obama by the right has not nearly approached the level of hatred the left displayed against Bush. My bet is that you were one of the haters. And the dictator charge against Obama does have some justification. If you have not noticed, now that Obama no longer has to worry about elections for the remainder of his second term, he is using executive orders on a massive scale to do what he cannot get congress to do. The legislative branch is not their to answer to the executive office's beck and calling. Obama is supposed to be running the executive branch. He is attemping to control both the executive and the legislative branch. That is not how representative government is supposed to work. What Obama is in effect telling the voters....."Don't bother voting for Senators and House members. If I don't get my way, I will bypass them with executive orders."


    The Republicans hate the fact that especially in 2012 a black guy with diminishing popularity and in a weak economy easily beat the best the GOP had to offer. And I think they know they can't win in 2016 either.
    The continued use of the race card by the left is so childish. I don't think anyone really cares what Obama's race is....they only care about the damage he is doing. And to be honest, I think it's the democrats who are afraid in regards to 2016. The only way the republicans can lose is if they nominate another geriatric RINO.

    Many of these leftwingers have selectively short memories. They choose not to remember the assassination threads that were written on talkboards while Bush was president. And you are right about the "payback" aspect. They dished it out during Bush's eight years and now they are getting their noses rubbed in it and they don't like it.
