Have you seen the Rasmussen polls? Methinks they paint a somewhat different story than what you're attempting to portray. And everyone knows that the president - whoever it is - pretty much gets a bump after the SOTU address. So your glowing report of the Empty Suit in Chief doesn't much wash here. Historically, Obama has been sucking hind teat for the past year plus and just recently got this bump due to the SOTU address and some surprisingly "encouraging" economic data - which, I might add, is pretty weak and not sustainable.
You know, "hate" is a pretty strong word. I don't much care for that word, just as I don't care for your attempt to describe my own disaffection for Obama as "hate." Kindly desist from that practice, if you please.
You seem pretty sure about George and Bill's own monitoring about the election. While Bill's activities are debatable, there is no way you can convince me that Soros hasn't contributed/thrown money at/otherwise attempted to steer politicians his way. Soros has a long, checkered history of doing that and pretending that he doesn't won't wash either. (It's what liberal, socialist billionaires do with their money, last I checked.)
Oh, another thing. GWB never has been and never will be a conservative and his tax cuts, just as they've been adopted and validated by Obama, don't really amount to much at all, especially when you factor in a $15 trillion deficit. It's a political gesture, nothing more. Nice try, but no see-gar!
And the last little tidbit for now - I am not a Republican. (I ain't a Libertarian either, just in case you might think I'm some sort of Ronulan/Paulbot.)
Have a great day!

I'd think the common thread with most politicians is power. Money runs a very close second.

It's pretty clear he and I are on different sides of the political spectrum, and that's just dandy.
I sincerely doubt that either of us is going to do much to change the other person's mind, but what the heck - I'll certainly learn an item or two along the way.

Not has hysterical as the giant hypocritical statement you just made mocking me. You laugh at me for posting "bias" CNN and then in the same sentence mention Rasmussen. Big Mistake.
You do know that Rasmussen is a part of NEWS CORP which has a far, far, far worse reputation of slanted polls, one sided reporting, outright deceit and dishonesty than CNN ever does, as is typical of every Rupert Murdoch publication all over the entire world. Look whats happening in the UK if you don't believe me on that one. You really don't get any closer to bias news than that! CNN is idiot TV most of the time, as all they want to talk about is pointless things like the Kardashians, NEW CORP is quite simply GOPTV.
Request Denied. I know a hate speech when I hear one, and you showed your hand by calling the POTUS a self absorbed narcissist. So if you don't want to be called out that it I suggest you lower your tone several degrees first, otherwise the label stays exactly where it is.
George Soros hasn't done anything that Conservatives contributors like the Waltons, the Koch brothers, the Mars family, Richard Scarif or any other rightwing contributor hasn't done as well. As the boys above pointed out, you only seem to take offense when the OTHER side does it, not really your own. You can't have it both ways. George Soros is simply the mirror image to the people I mentioned above.
Boy, talk about revisionism. I just love how some rightwingers claim GWB is no longer considered a conservative. When he was in office you claimed he was the savior of conservatism, but now as Bush is now regarded as one of the worst presidents in US history he is no longer a conservative. In baseball that's called a fair-weather fan. Well by your description, neither was Ronald Reagan as GWB only took Reaganism and put it on steroids. Everything that Bush did in his 8 years came from the Reagan era, especially the Tax cuts. So if Bush wasn't a conservative neither was Ronald Reagan.
And speaking of the taxcuts, that's totally wrong. Obama extended them until December 2012. The reason he did so was to avoid keeping the long term unemployed from losing their benefits, something THE GOP demanded as a concession. Unemployed tax benefits for millionaire taxcuts that was the trade. Again, if you don't like I would have a word with the GOP about that since they were the ones who insisted on that concession. Personally, I thought Obama made a foolish decision as the tax cuts was one of the most irresponsible legislation ever passed.
Last tidbit. I used to be a registered NY Republican, I am now a independent since the party went off the deep end.

OH noes, we're getting closer to the US election again.....
Why can't we all just be friends and talk about pretty flowers instead??
I can't really say that we've got good experiences from the previous elections, but I'll let this one stay open as long as you manage to stay civil in here...

Hey Mmarsh, you were right about Perry and I was wrong.

This is going to be the nastiest election in my lifetime.
My candidate is Ron Paul but I have accepted the main stream society will not vote for him so I am stuck with dumb #1 vs. dumb #2.
