I hope the FBI shows up and frog-marches the Repugnicant criminals out the front door at both these events.

Juckabee - Mason. It figures. Anyone who has read the news for the past few years about the public officials in Mason knows this is a perfect match.

I wonder which of these events Scott "My Campaign Website Has Been Under Construction for Six Months Even Though I am Unemployed and Have Nothing to do All Day" Gehring is going to attend.

Hey Anonumous!! If you're going to talk down to the opposition at least have the guts to post your name with your comments. Don't be a spineless coward that uses the anonymous tag to hide behind as a shield. If you don't like republicans fine, vote your own way but if you think having republicans arrested is a good idea you might as well hop a raft to cuba and join the socialist party because that's exactly what you're advocating! Freedom of ideas is what makes this nation great; impeding that would be beyond foolish!

I love it when those on the left spout off. It is then when they really show their true colors. Hey, you could teach the Klan a few things about hate propaganda.

The only true conservative-Ron Paul-has been ignored by the media and ridiculed by the Republican electorate. This is really too bad-as he would have gotten my vote.

He and Obama are the only candidates with real vision-so I'm going with Obama now. Whether it comes from the right or the left-things need to change. If Obama is too progressive to stomach-you should have thought of this before you put Bush in the White House for 8 years. If you truly want limited government, fiscal responsibility, and limited taxes-you should have supported Paul.

Obama is the man of change, but you can see on youtube.com that he wants to change the custom of saluting the flag during the national anthem. You can do a search on Obama and the flag. On the other hand, Huckabee is the man representing the kind of real change we need.

I will vote for Huckabee in Texas and I hope you will vote for him in Ohio. I think he is the man most likely to understand the wisdom of Abraham Lincoln as in this proclaimation of 1863:

We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown.
But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.
Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
Now, therefore, in compliance with the request and fully concurring in the view of the Senate, I do, by this proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer.

For the Obama supporters expecting a "change." What change(s) has Obama supported since he's been a Senator? Has he introduced any legislation in the past 3 years?

at 6:08 PM, February 25, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

To answer your question Brian, YES. Two examples are the "Coburn-Obama Transparency Act" and the "Democratic Republic of the Congo Relief, Security, and Democracy Promotion Act". Need more? Do your homework before you post another ignorant comment like that.

I'm voting for Huckabee. :)

wow........some really memorable legislative "acts" that obama introduced.......makes me sleep better

Huckabee is the real man of change...his fair tax will revolutionize our economy and rid our system of IRS waste. With the fair tax replacing our current, outdated tax system (which penalizes us for succeeding and helping the economy grow), american goods will become more competitive. Our tax system hasn't been changed since the 16th amendment was ratified in 1913. Our economy has evolved a great deal since then and so should our tax system.

I am voting for Mike Huckabee for his brilliant fiscal changes and rock solid conservative beliefs.

Mccain is a part of the corrupt elite with Bush. War for 100 more years?! How can we afford that? It gets taken from your pockets! Ron Paul knows what this country needs, but isn't getting the media support he deserves. Find out for yourself www.ronpaul2008.com

To be more specific...Obama has authored or co-authored more than 200 pieces of legislation since he has been a U.S. Senator. Several of these have become law. His Illinois Senate record is even more impressive (because he was there longer). He is not just a talker he is a doer.

Being a devout Democrat, I have to say that I am very impressed with Senator McCain for having the good common snse to put that nut Bill Cunningham in his place. Cunningham represents the racist and ignorant frame of thinking that keeps this country from rebounding back to a place of prestige and honor on the world stage. Kudos to you Senator McCain...you keep this up, and if Hillary wins the nod...I may have to give some thought to voting for you. Psych!! LOL But Kudos none the less. HRC could learn a thing or two from you about taking the high road.
