Oh come on! There is no wisdom involved in human nature. Either you receive a check or you don't. You just don;t see through the bullchitt of the progressive side. they are in a pickle because they can not continue the move forward crap without taking money from the seniors also. Or future seniors shall I say. But it is harder for them to make changes. Because of their hypocricies. they have made statements on medical from aging seniors who are nearing the end of their lives and the so called death panels. The midget Robert Reich, who ironically wouldhave been exterminated by real progressive views has made statements on this. And he represents the agenda of the progressive Dem party. Unfortunately their views do not end wars and insane foreign policies and the growing police state. Turn on zee ovens...bwahaha!its coming...Irresponsibility!

Harder for anyone to make changes, due to the mutan republicans, serving their party and corporate interests, rather than the best interests of the American people....Mitch McConnell declared it, and unfortunatley, they followed his lead.....

All the excuses is what this is all about. I have made my share in life. Just not the friggin whole life. Just excuses and in the end without real courage as the ones who really work and produce and take care of their own are the ones who have to pay for others. And in fact, are forced to pay for others under threats of violence. Now we are getting to the point where more and more people do not care if violence erupts. And when the ones committing violence kill the ones who paid family members, that is when hardcore people will be elected. that is when the game is over.

While all of Mittens DROIDS are here hollering for a robot to run the country, ask his campaign why they refuse to comment on this story - another Bain Capital outsourcing of auto parts jobs to CHINA!
"Being told to train his replacement was humiliating and surreal, but Tom Gaulrapp said the worst part was when the plant’s US flag was taken down before the Chinese engineers arrived.
Gaulrapp decided it was time to take a stand against outsourcing and the man he blames for the loss of his job: Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney, who founded the private equity firm that owns the Freeport, Illinois auto parts plant.
Romney’s ties to Bain Capital have burdened the Republican nominee’s hopes of winning the November 6 election as Democrats unfavorably paint him as a corporate raider who pioneered the outsourcing of US jobs to countries with lower labor costs."

Romney making money on a blind trust, run by Bain Capital, outsourcing jobs???
And he has the balls to say he's gonna bring 12 million jobs back?
I'm a Ron Paul supporter so I like to keep to the facts and point out the problems with both the Dems and the Repubs. The truth is Bush let 50,000 American businesses move to China between 2000-2008. Romney had about zero to do with it. He may have been one of the 50,000 businesses that sent some of its jobs to China, but in terms of the policy, Bush is almost solely to blame for shipping jobs to China. It is true that if elected, Romney will have a trade war with China. Donald Trump has been harping on the U.S. having a trade war with China on Fox for a couple of years now and he had all of the Repub candidates at his door asking for his endorsement, so you can guarantee that the person Trump endorsed agreed to have a trade war for Trump. So yes, if elected, expect Romney to force China to bring its currency up to its real value and expect Romney to slap big tariffs on Chinese imports, and yes, that will give us our manufacturing base back. Many liberals have written books about this, they want a trade war with China too. And Obama has not done so, and he is not going to do so.
If all MSNBC has is to keep saying Romney sent jobs to China, then they have nothing. They have no story, and, they are not even one bit concerned with promoting a trade war with China yet they complain about outsourcing all the time.

I was RESPONDING DIRECTLY TO THE CHARGE THAT DEMOCRATS were attacking McCain on a personal level.

The dirtiest of the dirty politicking has been since ROVE made his appearance on the scene, going back to when he was dodging the draft in college.

Sometimes: it is the personalities not the political party.

I guess you are another that insists people should answer the way they want you to answer.

Here's a thought: butt out. You don't have a clue to the conversations initiated by others over the last year.

I call you when I want you to adjudicate our conversations.
