At least at this point in time, you can draw a lot of similarity to Reagan. Although Reagan was more likeable, Romney is smarter. I think Romney is going to make an awesome president. He is too left for me, but this country badly needs someone that can work across aisles like Reagan and Clinton did. Like them or not, they both understood what it took to make Congress function. Obama has failed miserably on that front and of course the liberals cast blame everywhere else when they need to look in the mirror.

Dad looked up at me standing there and he smiled that crooked smile of his and said, "Wow! You're really turnin' into a little lady, aren't you?" I looked down at myself then and for the first time it dawned on me that I was becoming a woman. I'd been dressing like a boy for so long I hadn't really noticed my little breasts budding out and the tuft of brown hair sprouting between my legs. For the first time in my life I actually noticed myself! Dad noticed too, that old rascal. That garbage bag was bobbin' around up there like a catfish on a limb-line. Hmmmm... tell me more...

Carol has shown more character and restraint than anyone on here. She always takes the high ground. You liberals lack the etiquette to have a civil disagreement on issues. That is not Carol's failing, it's probably just how you folks were raised.

The Republicans/Tea Baggers turned on him within a month of him taking office and then Fox News took it from there, Glen Beck and all the other rightwing tv/radio retards have been trying to divide this country for years spewing their vile hatred.
Republicans have refused to work with him in any capacity for the last 4 years, stubborn jackasses.

You'd have to have some imagination to see it any other way.
