Don't know what you're talking about. I'm leaning towards Rand Paul presently. But it's very early and that could change. So don't get your panties in a wad, so to speak, if it does as the race gets closer.

Requiring an ID to vote isn't all that unreasonable. Unless democrats are afraid voter IDs would drastically affect their number of votes.

Why else would they get so angry? Don't democratic voters need an ID if they need food stamps or when picking up government checks?

Or can anyone just claim to be someone else and get both? Not sure how that works really.

But probably why there's so much fraud and abuse.

Conservatives were quick to attack Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) after a Dallas Morning News report revealed parts of her biography she touted on the campaign trail had stretched the truth.

But one Republican who knew the gubernatorial candidate from her days on the Forth Worth, Texas City Council is vouching for Davis' record, saying she wouldn't have come under the same scrutiny if she were a male candidate.

Becky Haskins, a former Republican ally of Davis' in the city council, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in a column published Tuesday that Davis was a hard worker who did what she needed to do for her children. Haskins served on the council during Davis' separation and divorce from her second husband Jeff Davis, who was himself a former city councilman.

An anonymous city council colleague of Davis' had told the Dallas Morning News that she was "tremendously ambitious" and wasn't "going to let family or raising children or anything else get in her way.”

Haskins said "what that comment really tells you is how hard Wendy works."

Some pundits also suggested she was a bad parent for leaving her children with her ex-husband while she attended Harvard Law School.

“If this involved a man running for office, none of this would ever come up,” Haskins told the Star-Telegram.“It’s so sad. Every time I ran, somebody said I needed to be home with my kids. Nobody ever talks about men being responsible parents.”

“They wouldn’t be talking about Wendy if she weren’t a threat," she added.

the Bush record for lowest job creation is an indication that the myth worked?
When the unemployment rate is already in the 4% and 5% range, there's not much room for an explosion in job creation. It's never going to be 0%.

Think of a sponge. When it's saturated, it can't soak up too much more water.

Right now, the sponge is barely damp.

Unemployment statistics don't even account for those not looking anymore and are making unemployment a permanent lifestyle. And it's still barely staying just below 8%- not even counting all these people.

The same damp sponge should be able to soak up a lot of them if Obamacare hadn't dried up the source of the water.

Conservative pundit Glenn Beck seems to regret his on-air antics during his tenure at Fox News Channel.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Beck to reflect on his time at the network on Tuesday's "The Kelly File." Beck left in 2011 to start his digital network, The Blaze, saying at the time that he felt like "if you do not leave now, you won't leave with your soul intact."
"I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language," he told Kelly. "I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart and it's not who we are."
"I didn't realize how really fragile the people were, I kind of thought we were a little more in it together," Beck continued. "Now I look back and I realize if we could've talked about the uniting principles a little more instead of just the problems, I think I would look back on it a little more fondly."

I find it funny that you " I love the Constitution" frauds would back an effort that actually prevents eligible voters from voting. Especially when there are absolutely NO statistics that show significant voter fraud that a photo ID would prevent.,

no it really isn't unreasonable, but what voter fraud do you think it would stop?

What's even funnier is you liberals have no problem with ignoring the Constitution when it comes to Americans being forced to buy something against their will or be penalized by the federal government and the IRS.

But have a hissy fit when something as important and crucial as voting requires one to present a photo ID first.

If someone wants to vote badly enough, they will find a way to get an ID. Presenting a photo IDs is required for much less important things.
