Obviously the American people couldn't relate to Kerry, either. He was defeated. You have a selective memory, ya dope.
Remember the GOP attack ads showing Kerry windsurfing?
Kerry lost not because of his wealth or his income tax returns of which he paid even less in taxes than Romney.

The point is wealth only becomes a factor when it's a republican and not a Kennedy or a Kerry or a Rockefeller or a Pelosi.

I liked it better her way, more... authentic. So, tell me the truth, do you like it when I talk dirty to you? To carol? I suppose it's possible I've misjudged you... like I did the girl in the worn red flats in art class Saturday who pretty much just kept moving backwards until she fell in my lap - which I was prepared for I might add... probably where I caught this bloody cold. Typically I sniff a woman's behind when I first meet her to make sure everything's up to snuff... I might have to rethink all that..

I'm more concerned with the use of drones for snooping on people's private lives. If I want to lay out on the back deck and shoot ping pong balls out of my vagina into various plastic cups with various point values strategically placed around the yard I have a right to do so without fear of seeing a film of the event on YouTube.

Jeb Bush called David Gregory a crack addict on MTP this morning; this after Gregory was fawning over Bush for the entire segment; when Gregory seemed taken aback; Bush relented and said "oh well, heroin addict; that better?"

The Bush' have such charm, don't they?

Well, you probably have a point of some kind... it might have something to do with the fact that three wealthy people you mention have worked tirelessly since they were elected to improve the lives of the poor and underserved, whereas republican wealth depends entirely on being able to freely exploit those very same people. Just a guess?

You're not going to find this information anywhere in the liberal media.

Other sources such as Bloomberg reported the same thing.

By the way, releasing two years of returns is more than what the law requires and the standard Senator Kerry adhered to as the Democratic nominee in the 2004 election.

But we didn't hear enough whining about Romney producing only two years of his tax returns by the left. Not a word was said about Kerry's wife's fortune that he married into withholding her tax returns.

<quoted text>you were right about Ann Arbor Michigan why it is the way it is and is where Bill Ayers got Radicalized in the New Left and where he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group and became involved in the New Left with the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) where he rose to national prominence as an SDS leader in 1968 and 1969. As head of an SDS regional group, the "Jesse James Gang," Ayers made decisive contributions to the Weatherman orientation toward militancy.
The group Ayers headed in Detroit, Michigan became one of the earliest gatherings of what became the Weatherman. Before the June 1969 SDS convention, Ayers became a prominent leader of the group, which arose as a result of a schism in SDS.

As the Jerk-In-Chief described it, Ayers and Dohrn were just neighbors he met in Chicago.

Dixiecrats Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. and many more, remained Democrats till their dying day you idiot.
Democrats created the Dixiecrats, when the civil rights movement succeeded by the Republicans, Dixiecrats returned to their racist Democratic fold. It was not till much later, with a new, younger breed of Southerner and the thousands of Northerners moving into the South, that Republicans made gains in the south.
In the age of information...Your ignorance and running on dumbass is still cway's best choice.
Learn to read, Dweeb.

I stated the change did not occur overnight.

But it did happen eventually. The shift was noticeable on election night, 1964, following Barry Goldwater's speech against Civil Rights. Five Southern states bolted for the GOP camp.

New breed of Southerner? No such animal.

Then why did Holder defend Obama having the authority at his own discretion to use drones in this country against "suspected terrorists"?
It confirms many people's concerns that this president says one thing and does another. If he insists on trying all terrorists in American courts, why would he want autonomous authority to use drones on American soil against "suspected" terrorists?
When it comes to life and death, he simply can't be trusted. Not this president who detests any and all opposition to his personal ideology and personal vision for this country.
You can see why having sole authority to use drones against "suspected enemies" would make a few people a little nervous.
I am still waiting for the Jerk-In-Chief to close down Arlington and the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier for lack of maintenance funding and blame it on the Republicans.

The fundamental problem with market capitalism is that it reduces human suffering - not to mention animal suffering - to a matter of dollars and scents. it wouldn't be a problem were it not for the fact that in order for a few Bozos to play capitalist everyone else is forced to play along too. Simple answer though, kill the capitalists.

All that legislation was crafted during the Kennedy years.

All Johnson did was sign his name to it.

You'll have to explain to me why J. Edgar Hoover and oil tycoon, Clint Murchison would be friends with a liberal politician. That dog don't hunt.

The main point of my post, which you miss in the most embarrassing manner, was that the CIA was the prime mover in causing the war with North Vietnam.
