I had the impression that he was painting by the numbers, and not doing a very good job at that. September 11 proved to me that Bush was a neocon puppet. I realized that Cheney and others running the government. The remaining Bush years confirmed my suspicions. I left the GOP and registered as an Independent and never looked back.

    Just under the surface it is difficult to find much difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties. Yes, as ever, the Democrats are nutless, meek, unimaginative and have no unity. Republicans remain the party of old white men who are comprised of neocons, Tea partisans and religionists who are paranoid fascists. Most important is that both Democratic and Republican parties are owned by corporations and big money. I trust neither party.
    The more I read your posts, the less convinced I become that you are an independent. Your critique of both Walker and Bush come straight out of the dnc extreme leftwinger handbook. If you were to show even an ounce of objectivity, I might buy the "independent" claim.

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.
    I love that one! Because of the ado over "if you like your plan..." Obama's purpose for going to Boston was overshadowed. At the time, Obamacare was under siege as millions were indeed losing their plan. He went to Boston, the home of "Romneycare" to remind everyone it was now Romney's idea, when just weeks before he had said "I actually like the term Obamacare....it's mine."

    Now, as the onion layers come off and we see the emperor has no skin, the blame game gets worse, causing me, an outsider, to ask what do they really want? Do they argue to be right, or to actually try to get something done. As the war loses ground, he is using the White House artillery to create a fight over illegals.

    Now, as the war grows worse he comes to congress after the fact to ask permission, but to have them tie his hands for him in a Twilight Zone game of who is now going to take the blame for the absolute mess "no boots on the ground, but some boots on the ground, let me think about it" war strategy. In the end, from my perspective there does not seem will nor attention enough to actually fight the war; arguing about everything has become their comfort zone.

    I have to wonder if Obama is not suddenly realizing he is in way over his head and is defaulting to what he has proven works for him, demonizing the Republican Party.

    And that makes me share with you that I have very little in common with the party, hated Bush have now, after two and a half terms of Obama come to respect them and figure right now only the GOP has the balls to move forward, as in progress as in what has been absent for seven years under "progressives..."

    Didn't we just have this discussion? Didn't you tell me that you've never read what I have posted concerning Hillary? How about Pelosi? How about Reid? You told me that you weren't interested in readying what I've said about Hillary and that you weren't going to, Mr. Objective. LOL!

    Have you ever thought that maybe it's you?

    It matters not to me what you think.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    over 84%...

    Huh....

    This is a good sampling which shows precisely what is wrong with this country.

    Take into account if Scott Walker was a Dem that number would be, oh, let's be generous and say half, so 42%...

    Which is still an astounding number, signifying the depth of depravity that is the public mind.

    80% -- and again I'm being generous -- of Bachelor Degree holders have the intelligence of a bologna sandwich...

    They've begged, borrowed and stolen their way to achieving a piece of paper which for some reason unbeknownst to me is a publicly accepted indicator of themsis beings smaarts... Briefly memorizing and regurgitating facts and figures for brief moments of time to "demonstrate" that they've acquired knowledge on any particular subject.

    Any and all employers, those crazy individuals in the "real world" who actually, by action must demonstrate their knowledge daily know full well that any new hire that's a freshly minted graduate is dumb as doo doo. Sure, sure, sure don't get me wrong you've got one or two blinkers on that ratty old stand of lights, but by and far you've got a group of know nothings who think they know something which only proves to those of us who do know, that they know nothing. (35-55 year olds are the only one's who really have a grip on things anyhow, before that they think they know everything and after that they think they've seen everything)


    Now, say what you want about Scott Walker, I did detest the man a few years back, and still do think he went too far in his union busting endeavors, but what I cannot do is take away from him his accomplishments and success. Did he need a wittle piece of paper to show da world how smarts he was? No. Was it the outside affirmation of his abilities and knowledge -- a wittle piece of paper -- that led him to this place of prominence he enjoys today? No.

    Does having dat itsy bitsy, piece of paper endow him or any of us with special powers of creativity, wisdom, foresight and cognition? No.

    But if this poll is any indicator, at over 84% -- apparently we like to pretend it does.

    Pull your heads out of your ass people.

    A degree is nothing but a means to limit the greater majority, in-debt the remaining few and create societal conformities which convince each of us of our deserving place in this world.

    It's BS.

    I love it when someone refers to "fancy colleges".

    The thing about college degrees is that not all degrees are the same. Not to dis anyone's degree but a sociology degree is a little different than a biochemistry degree.

    One would just think it would bug you if after spending hours and hours on your degree to not come back at some point and grab that degree. May just be me.

    Your problem is that your critique of Walker is as I have stated....right out of the DNC handbook. Voicing opinions against Hillary may just be your way of attempting to claim "independent" credentials. Your comments on Walker show you to be a far leftwinger. For an alleged independent, you are just not showing any objectivity. That's why I have a hard time with your "independent" claim. No offense intended.

    It matters not to me what you think.
    Yet what I think matters to the point where you bothered to respond. Go figure!

    I am still laughing at Obama's 2010 statement: "Let them run against that." (obamacare)

    Scott Walker Finally Answers a Foreign Policy Question

    ...and manages to sound more and more like Sarah Palin while doing it. At CPAC today presumed presidential candidate Governor Scott Walker was asked how he would handle the situation with ISIS.

    As if he was being interviewed before a Fox News audience Walker obviously made an effort to avoid a technical response. Following is Walker's most recent bold foreign policy statement:


    For years I’ve been concerned about that threat,” Walker said, saying he received security briefings from the FBI and his adjutant general. “I want a commander-in-chief who will do anything in their power to ensure that the threat of radical Islamic terrorists do not wash up on American soil.”


    “If I can take on 100,000 protestors, I can do the same across the world,” Walker added, referencing the months of protests in his state over his efforts to limit the power of public sector unions in his state.



    That certainly puts ISIS on notice. Now they know that if Scott Walker becomes President he'll bust their unions, slash their taxes and decimate their educational systems. Walker did not say anything, however, about building them a new professional sports arena with ISIS tax money
