Re: 10:47pm's comment that he is going for a McCain-Cunningham ticket.

McCain-Romney....please Lord, let it be....Romney as VP would be like the Second Coming of Dan Quayle. As for the Obama-Clinton debate: dunno, didn't see it. But it looks like the media is trying to stampede all of the "Dimm--o'crats" in Ohio and Texas into voting for Barack.

I agree with Romney. He's great with our economy and McCain is good with foreign policy.
I like Cunningham, but he's an entertainer and not a politician.

I think Romney is the big winner.... McMarshmellow and the two Dhimmicrat Socialists have proven him.

Debate: DRAW. Both candidates equally promised everything including the kitchen sink. I missed a good hockey game because of this, eech.

Barak's campaign will improve, now that Fidel has resigned his presidency to work on the Obama campaign full time.

Anon wingnut 11:19 is the troll that calls himself 'useful idiot'. Idiot leads a very sad life with copious amounts of free time on his hands, and spends his days and nights posting comments on this forum under various names. All of the 'socialists' comments are his.

Idiot thinks it still 1963 and that they Commies are hiding under every rock, waiting for a chance to break into his little hovel and get their hands on his money, which he hides in his mattress.

What a sad little troll the idiot is. Please get some mental help idiot, and then get a life.

Get a grip; Allah's assasins want to kill us. Even someone as ignorant as you is on their list.

YOU get a grip, Useless Idiot 3:33. Bush has made this Nation LESS safe, he turned Iraq into a Shiite Islamic state and terrorist training ground, he let Bin Lauden escape, dropped the ball in Afghanistan by invading Iraq with made up 'evidence' of non-existent WMD's, over-stretched our military, bought off North Korea as well as the Sunni insurgents in Iraq and he has made Iran stronger by making Iraq into a Shiite state under their influence. He cut a deal with Pakistan that allowed AQ and the taliban to rebuild in Pakistan and threaten Afghanistan. Bush and his cronies have rewarded war profiteers, and has trampled all over our constitution.

You're going a heck of a job, Bushie!!!

And to all the wingnut, chickenhawk, bed-wetting cowardly dead-enders of your ilk out there, I'll leave you with the words of our Founding Father Benjamin Franklin: "He who sacrifices freedom for temporary security deserves neither and will lose both."

Although written in 1798, these words from Thomas Jefferson speak directly to us today, and to the frustrations and disappointment that 81 percent of the country feels today:

"A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt. If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake."

The reign of your witches is coming to an end, idiotboy, so good riddance to you and yours.

Clueless 5:20

You have a bed wetting fetish and your paranoid about witches.
We had what you call peace during the skirt chaser years, because he ignored the bombing and killing of our Marines and the bombing the USS Cole.
You mention that this is a "game"; have you ever served in the military? It is no game.
You think Clinton didn't make mistakes. The man who makes no mistakes is the man who does nothing; Clinton did nothing for our security.

Fear mongering coward 6:14-

George Bush and you 19 percenters are the ones who treat war as a game. You are the ones who ignored all of the pre-911 intelligence. You are the ones who started an unnecessary war built on a bed of lies. You are the ones who let Bin Lauden escape. You are the ones who said that the Iraqis would "welcome us with roses and chocolates". You are the ones who had no plans to win in Iraq, who denied our troops the armour they needed. You are the ones with the blood of nearly 5,000 American service men & women on your hands. You made the Middle East into an enormous FUBAR, which someone else has to clean up now.

In the dark days after Pearl Harbor, Franklin D. Roosevelt said to this nation that "we have nothing to fear but fear itself".

The only thing that the current occupiers of the White House and those of your ilk offer this nation is fear, fear and more fear.

You and your ilk are nothing but a group of fear mongering cowards, who want to hide under your sheets with paranoid delusions of commies, socialists and "islamofascists" (HA!) hiding around every corner, waiting to get each and every one of us. You want to scrap the constitution, take away our freedoms, and have wars in the Middle East for "the next 100 years" (John McClain Quote). You are the fascists that threaten this nation Anon.

In the worst days of World War Two and in the Cold War we didn't allow our enemies to cause us to scrap our constitution, take away our American freedoms and keep us from living our lives.

Today, we certainly aren't going to allow a few terrorists to change this nation, to steel our freedoms from us and to force us to change our lives.

And we sure as hell aren't going to let a group of cowardly, fear mongering demagogues like you, Dick Cheney and George W Bush take our freedoms away from us, walk on our constitution or keep us from living our lives to the fullest. We won't hide under our covers from our enemies, and we won't hide under our covers from the likes of YOU.

You are the worst kind if unAmerican traitor anon, one who wraps himself in the flag while betraying the principles upon which this nation was founded. Go cower under you bed Anon. The rest of us have seven years of GOP corruption and mismanagement to clean up.

You're finished Anon. Game over.

You never mention military service on your part, so you can't be in a position to evaluate what security entails.
At the first sign of trouble, you'll run like a scared deer and forget about your rights.
Your boy Bill had two chances to pull the trigger on Bin Laden, but he was too busy chasing interns.
People of your ilk think Democrats will make America a Constitutional heaven.
Get real and hold on to your wallet; you're shameless.

HA!! 12:08 thinks that because he was a grunt in the Motor Pool or a cook in the mess hall that he is some type of military genius. Typical wingnutter logic. He stands by while america is fleeced and cheers. What a loser. This guy isn't fit to lead a Boy Scout troop.

Bush let Bin Lauden ecscape time and time again. Now he says that 'catching Bin Lauden isn't important'. The mastermind of 911. All praise praise our Glorius Leader, he of AWOL chickenhawk fame.

2:38 doesn't know history and obviously can't read.
The CIA had Osama in their sights and the Pants Dropper in Chief didn't have the guts to approve the hit. It think Osama should be our most important target and I've never said anything to the contrary, so you made a faulty quantam leap on your silly posting.
An Army runs on its stomach and we need cooks; what's your petty beef (no pun intended) with cooks. Somehow you have managed to pre-judge others for what they believe and/or what they do.
You're a frustrated, miserable human being and may God bles you.

You seem to be stuttering in your last sentence. I take exception to your Motor Pool comment. I took that military training and worked as a Ford mechanic. Maybe I fixed your car or do you drive a foreign model you dumb Commie?

3;53 IS LYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was an E2 in the 347th underground mess-kit repair batallion!!!!!!!!!!!

3:49 thinks that he is General Patton. Too bad he never did anything in the Army but peel potatoes and sling SOS.

Bush personally blew Tora Bora and let Bin Lauden escape. The Brits had him dead in their sights, and Bush let him go. I wonder why he did it? Is he incompetent, or did he betray our nation??

The 10:15 blogger seems to forget that Mr. Bush wouldn't have to worry about OBL if Mr. Clinton would have taken care of the issue when he was Commander in Chief.
10:15 judges people by what they do; what's wrong with Army cooks?
Is he's so outstanding that he views people as lower than himself?
Maybe 10:15 should run for President? The choices so far aren't too enticing.

10:15 lives in a trailer and drives a pickup truck.
