I know how you roll; you'll just ignore, deflect, or claim bias.
However, I'm pretty disgusted with both parties myself, and the influence of lobbying and the greed that goes with it. I've heard that old people cling to the past and resist change. I must be old, I'm clinging to old TV shows and longing for better, more innocent days. I'm a lot more likely to accept change if it's positive change that supports the country as it was intended in the Constitution. That's not the way I see things going. Your man is an anti-colonial socialist idealogue, he's not incompetant, his loyalties do not lie with the American way of life. He is using his stack of bad checks to bring us down. I despise socialism, it hasn't worked and it punishes the makers and rewards the takers. He doesn't want a "level playing field", he wants level outcomes and the end of individualism.
Steve, I admit Romney blew it, and I also think republicanism is done for. I'm not vehemently far right; I just would like to regain the sense of security and personal freedom I enjoyed up until about 2008. Romney's mistakes IMO: The Big Bird comment. Millions of liberals and possibly undecideds fall at the feet of NPR and public television. He lost all those votes.
The indications about right- to- life issues were too far right for me; and tens of thousands of pro-choice young women voters.
On the other hand, he would be busy turning the country around right now; you can't recognize that his qualifications were even called "sterling" by Clinton.
Bob, thanks, we're all gonna gather information that supports our individual political propensities and implement them in our heated discussions. I've heard that democracies only last a couple hundred years; I'd prefer to be in the middle of this one, rather than at the end of it.
