    Do you see "very liberal" in my sig? I see very conservative in yours, not that you need to advertise it.

    I am equal opportunity, I see both sides as corrupt.

    Agreed. And to those who think that the GOP needs to be a so-called "big tent" party need to understand this. Demographics be damned! Reagan was able to usher in the last Conservative Revolution by doing what he does best-convey conservatism in such a way that appealed to the American people! Not just blacks, Hispanics, etc. like the Democrats do!!!
    You could have worded that better....I would have said to ALL Americans, not just blacks, Hispanics, etc.
    Besides, we haven't had a conservative since Reagan, certainly GWB was not conservative...
    He, and his daddy, spent tax money like drunken sailors for unnecessary wars. And both of them sucked up to the Saudis like no other president ever has.

    Both sides spend, but democrats are at least honest enough to tax us now for what they spend, instead of borrowing against our children's future.

    Each generation should have more opportunities, and live better, than the last, but not at the expense of the next.

    Right now, in that respect, Obama is looking like a republican.... He is borrowing from our grandchildren to fix today's problems....

    I agree with you for the most part but I have to ask...

    If you could point me to where you replied as to why you think Obama's opposition trouble are due to his race? I cannot understand how anyone could think that. It literally has nothing to do with his race.

    Which opposition? Public opposition, such as republicans/politicians, I doubt race is involved. But private oppostion, from ordinary citizens, I think race plays a large part. maybe not a majority, but no small number either.
    They are the source are a lot of really stupid emails....

    I only asked because you voted yes in the poll.

    I don't think race has much to do with it. If it was a white man trying to pass the HCB the opposition would be just as fierce.

    I think the majority of the resistance is because he is making down right stupid policy decisions. The bail outs, following in step with to much of what Bush did. It all adds up to independents and conservatives wanting out.

    But hey, that's just me.

    wanting out? where can we go?
    IMO, the polecats in congress are going to do whatever they want to do, all WE can do is try to do the best we can within the silly/stupid rules they inflict on us.

    the public got tired of old stupid and voted for new stupid....
    Propulsion is a word to propulse is propulsed is it not or I could be a very bad speller.

    In any case I do agree the Republicans lost not the democrates won. Yet he wasnt qualified to run for President, heck he wasnt qualified to give the keynote speech ion 2004, and here we are with a State Senator as President.

    time will tell if a state senator is any better than a former Texas governor....
    The GOP handed the whitehouse to the DEMS on a silver platter...and so far I don't see any new GOP blood suitable to run in 2012...

    I hate Obama because he's half white.
