I knew Hillary was in the hospital, although I didn't know Karl Rove was a neuroscientist. It was just an obvious and desperate political move on Rove's part to put doubt on Hillary's ability to lead. The last time we saw absurd and scummy GOP tactics like that one, they were asking an American citizen to show his birth certificate over and over again.
Asking to see a birth certificate is legit because the Constitution requires a person running for President be a natural US Born citizen. The Constitution says nothing about a persons military records when it comes to being a US President, yet they hounded GW for years on that subject.

You misstate the liberal position, as usual. The Left wants to limit the power of money in the electoral process. The Right doesn't. It's really pretty simple. Playing by the crooked rules that the Right has established doesn't equate to an endorsement of those rules.
Oh please. You liberals love to throw rocks in glass houses. How much did DumBama have for his last campaign? Something like a billion dollars? That's a lot of homeless donors, don't you think? I guess it was those same poor people that were buying his $20,000 dinner plate tickets for his fund raiser.

You spend so much time snooping on what our side is doing that you don't even know what your side is up to. At least we Republicans can come to terms that both sides get a lot of money and influence from certain groups. The liberals? Oh, those rotten Republicans and their wealthy supporters as if you don't have any. LOL!

Even when it is explained to you, you refuse to get it. Which party tries to regulate the amount of cash involved in campaigns and which party resists all attempts to do so? There is a reason you are a truck driver, bro.

Then allow a truck driver to educate you: it's no secret that the media is in full gear for DumBama and the Democrats. Cut off all funding, and all we would hear is the Democrat point of view except for those that watch Fox or listen to talk radio, and that's not a whole hell of a lot of people compared to MSM.

You can't stop influence in our politicians. Did you ever hear of the McCain/ Feingold bill? You know, McCain..... a member of the Republican party????

Put the shoe on the other foot. Let's say the MSM was all in favor of conservatism, and the Republicans were looking for a way to stop the Democrats from getting their messages and ideas out. Would you support it then?

For anyone that's been paying attention for a while, the dividing lines are pretty clear. Following the "Citizens United" decision (which gutted the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reforms), this was the response of the two parties, in their electoral platforms:

"The GOP platform states: "we support repeal of the remaining sections of McCain-
Feingold."

The Democratic platform says: "we support campaign finance reform, by constitutional amendment if necessary."

you don't suppose 1 party is worried their constituents in mass can't compete equally on the playing field do you?

because of that 1 party wants limits.

is it surprising to you that employees can contribute more than unemployed single mothers?

What we witnessed with campaign finance reform was a shift of money.

Before finance reform, politicians were held responsible for their ads which of course contributions funded. After campaign finance reform, the money went to PAC"s where they were not held liable for what they said about an opponent. They could say anything they wanted truth or lie. One side or the other could point out the lie, but that's about it.

So campaign finance reform not only didn't solve any problems, it made them much worse. So what would the Democrats like to do, tell private citizens they are no longer allowed to form PAC's and limit their free speech? How long would that take to make it to the Supreme Court for Constitutional violations?

Yah...that whole Birth Certificate thing seemed really "legit". Remind us how that turned out. Let me guess...a big Liberal media cover up. What you Fox News oil cut flunkies call the Liberal Media, thinking, tax paying Americans call the voice of the people. The fact that you don't see the whole birth certificate sideshow as anything short of sleazeball, racist politics speaks volumes about the extent of your denial. Wonder how the American people feel about that big waste of time birth certificate thing...oh that's right... we elected Obama twice.

I was shaking Dave Bossie's hand back then. As much as we love to hear a truck driver tell us all about what Citizen's United did back then, I was on the front lines and I can tell you the supreme court decision was nothing short of the death of Democracy in this country. It allowed out of country corporations to contribute as much to a campaign as they want without disclosing the source or the amount. You know...just a bunch of "Citizen's United". Bullsh1t. Just more conniving rightwing tactics to byass the will of the American people.(Also see Koch Brothers purchased 2 supreme court justices)

If unions can give money to the Democrats, why can't corporations give to the Republicans? Did you take a look at that donor list I provided? Actual cities were giving money to DumBama. How are "cities" giving taxpayer money away to a candidate?

Sorry, but when it comes to buying favors, it's a two way street. I know Democrats would love it to be a one way street, but that's not how the game is played.

So people wanting to know that the President is a US citizen is sleazebal, but political foes wanting to know about a US Presidents military record is just dandy. Who says the left are hypocrites?

I too think that money should not be such a great influence BUT IF the rules are the same for all participants, they are NOT crooked.

Pls explain why you are homeless & why your mother is responsible for YOU, now an adult.
Are you grown up & an able bodied adult or not? Just asking a couple of questions.
