    Of course you would, don't be silly. If he had a stack a mile high everyone would vote for him.

    A college degree, especially a Bachelor's Degree (which I happen to have) is about as useful in your working career as those ballet lessons your wife took when she was 4 are now in her life.
    In engineering a bachelor degree is pretty useful. Nowadays a masters degree is probably necessary to set you apart. Anyway, a degree is not necessary though I doubt we'll see another president without one.

    George Washington was probably the best leader to ever become President.........no degree. The man showed great wisdom and judgement.

    Washington padded his expense account for the Revolutionary War.

    Bull****.

    Washington was offered a good salary but he turned it down and said that he just wanted his expenses paid. Then he padded his expense account big time.

    The founding fathers get a lot of credit that they don't deserve- they fought for freedom for themselves, not for Black slaves and women.

    But believe whatever you want to believe, won't cost me a penny.

    BUT

    In guiding this force during year after year of humiliating defeat to the final victory, more than once paying his men out of his own pocket to keep them from going home, Washington earned the unlimited confidence of those early citizens of the United states.

    Yes, that was hyperbole on my part, but I think most get the point. Washington did things then, that no one was do today. He led by example in every position appointed or elected to. He even freed his slaves.

    Without Washington the Revolution would have failed.

    The leftist NDP is no where to be seen, quietly letting the voters forget the 2012 election where they attacked the integrity, ability to mother, the bust line of our Premier..not to mention a blog suggesting she was a "MILF"...especially since they were handed their heads.

    In the US though, they keep right on pounding. Look at the threads in here, three assailing Scott Walker and how few "Bush" references there are still seven years later. The tactic isn't working, they have lost the last three congressional elections in a row and now the "enemy" controls the dialogue through congress.

    Meanwhile the cheap shots and propaganda campaigns continue unabated while the whine and whimper "unfair" as though the world will forget seven years of Bush hating.

    What goes around comes around is an old saying because it's true. They got as ugly as I have ever seen politics but now expect their victims to simply let them go on attacking. Sorry, but no. Get ready for some serious blood. It won't take much to get some plants into the 'private meetings' with Hillary and tape a version of '47%'...the Republicans are stupid if they have not already recruited the people to it.

    Wait for the Senate to re-open the IRS investigation....two years of "I refuse to answer on the grounds it may tend....." will not gain the Democrats any votes. How about the Armed Services Committee opening hearings on how this war is going and who be ordering who...
    perhaps a hearing or fifty of Obama's unilateral and questionably legal handling of immigration, illegals and a detailed look at "amnesty", there sits a future gold mine of screw ups, mis identification, bribery and so forth.....staged a year from now.....

    The fun, as they say, is just beginning. As I said the morning after the last election, the Republicans are in a perfect position. They can't do anything wrong as Obama will veto everything they throw at him and that makes for some creative laws.....They have no one individual on which to hang jack **** and one guy, one party responsible for EVERYTHING....

    Hell, they blow this they don't deserve to breath in and out
    It has come to the point where the democrats know they have blown it, but they cannot help themselves. They have made a habit of referring to the republicans as the party of "no", yet they have become the party of "no" themselves. As you have pointed out, if "Hussein" Obama everything the republicans throw at him, it is a continuation of one party rule. They did not learn from Obamacare devastating them in the last two congressional elections. They realize the damage, but instead of attempting to work with the republicans they are just lashing out and attempting to share the blame with goofy suggestions that obamacare was actually a republican idea. It does not seem to matter to them that obamacare did not garner a single republican vote.

    Considering your comment further down about your father in law, I simply don't buy your claim that you were a republican all of your life. I think you are attempting to pull a fast one. As for alleged "Bush lies", I will offer you the same challenge that one of your leftwing soul mates chickened out on. Name even one Bush lie in your own words and attempt to back it up.


    And stop with the executive orders nonsense, previous presidents have used it more than Obama.
    Nice try....however it's not about the quantity of executive orders it's about abusing the process with the executive orders you do write. All previous presidents have used them, however only Obama has used them to completely bypass congress.

    My own father in-law hates Obama for one reason only, he's black. He's in his 70's, an old time Republican. Racist as hell. Much of his generation is.
    Again, you are attempting to pull a fast one. You evidently did not live through the segregation era. It was southern democrats who were the racists. Not republicans. And one of the most powerful democrats of that era Senator Robert Byrd was a former grand Cyclops in the KKK. And let's not forget former governor George Wallace of Alabama. If your father in law is truly racist, it's more likely that he is a lifelong democrat.
