Oh, believe me, I have very little faith in the American electorate after 2012, but I keep thinking "surely, they can't be this stupid again" - but .....<quoted text>
Personally I don't give the voting public as much credit as you do. They seem to only look at what is glittering at the present time.
I think calling Christie a moderate is really stretching it and being very kind to him.
Hillary is only out if the truth about Benghazi comes out, otherwise Biden is gone. That is just my somewhat humble opinion.
And I agree about Hillary and Benghazi, but frankly, we already know enough that her candidacy should have been deep sixed long before now, but again, that huge portion of the electorate that is, as you rightly say, so distracted by the shiny baubles being promised is still out there.
And I am in complete agreement with you on the use of the term "illegal alien" - there is nothing derogetory in the term, it is a factually accurate description of those who ILLEGALLY enter this country and are neither citizens nor legal immigrants. The textbook definition of an alien is: "an unnaturalized foreign resident of a country." Just where is the insult? Answer: nowhere but in the minds of the PC police
