The GOP has misrepresented Obama's "you didn't build it" remark, the Ohio voting law suit, the extension of welfare law waivers et cetera.
Neither side can claim the high road and anyone with a modicum of objectivity should know that. To claim your side is better than the other is, flatly, just ignoring the truth. They BOTH lie or, to be kind, severely bend the truth.
"severely bend the truth"? That IS being kind....lol.
Another point we both agree on. NO ONE is blameless in this debate. Paul Ryan throwing grandma off the cliff, Obamacare and death panels, etc, etc--they're all given to hyperbole.....

And there you have it - proved my point. Gary Johnson just might be that statesman you were pining for and you won't vote for him. It's just the way we're wired. We can't STAND for the other side to win. So we won't vote for what's in our best interest - we just want to make sure the other guy loses.
I voted for Kodos.
We can't afford 4 more years of Obama's spending

Yup. So no one, really, can claim the high road. Both sides lie. If you're aligned with a party you cannot honestly claim they are any better than the other on this point. When someone does you know, like say Rush, they have lost objectivity.

We couldn't afford W's war. And, if I recall, even Ryan voted for the first auto bail out.*shrug* We can't afford to go back to the GOP's failed economy - do you even remember what kind of mess Obama inherited?

So, we danged sure can't go back to that. And we don't want four more years of the current administration. I'd say it's time for Plan J.

Sadly, you are correct. Johnson embodies what I believe this country needs but the idea of risking 4 more years of Obama is so unpalatable that my vote will go to the person most likely to beat him.

I contend that this attitude is what's wrong with America. We will NEVER get change in this country as long as we keep insisting on voting for either side of the same coin.

Touche....

My point is that I will vote for anyone that I feel is VIABLE. Gotta be Viable. I would love to see Gary Johnson in office, sadly, I don't even know if he's on the ballot in all 50 states. I won't vote for Kodos, or Muhammad Ali's hairdresser or any one like that. I don't think that's a constructive way to vote. It's like NOT leaving a tip--the waitress will assume that you didn't leave a tip because you were cheap--or you forgot--not because the service stinks.....

I actually agree again, and had this been 2000 or 2004 I would vote Libertairian but my distrust of an unrestrained Obama keeps me voting Romney. I fear what Obama is capable of with reelection worries taken off the table. So when Ferrerman says "anyone but him" he is correct.

Anyone but Obama 2012!

I am aligned with a party--simply because in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, you MUST be affiliated with a party to vote in the primary. Oki still maintains an independant affiliation. On this point, we differ--DRASTICALLY. lol. But yeah, I know what you mean. I heard some news commentator refer to Romney's supporters as conservatives, then not 5 minutes later he referred to Newt Gingrich's supporters as Right-wingers. If that wasn't a subtle message, I don't know what was......

LOL! Ok, you got your guy all picked out- but I've never seen you post a word about him, under any avatar until today- but, he can't win so the most important thing is don't let Obama win- AGAIN....

Well, you people did saybody!

I agree.

Personally, I wish the 2 party system would be abolished. Or barring that, a national primary day. If we can all vote for president on the same day, why can't we all hold primaries the same day? What gives Iowa and New Hampshire the right to say who is the best person to lead the country, and we get to choose from the ones that are left?

That does sound like an entirely different story--or maybe a horse of a different color. Personally, I prefer blue.

Which is why reform is needed so desperately. I stated before and I'll say it again. Why do we get more than 50 candidates for Miss America, but only 2 for president? All the 50 candidates get equal time, you get to make a decision based on what you see and hear. But the news media decides who we get to hear and see when a person runs for president. The people don't get to make informed choices--unless they do a lot of reading and studying on their own. Time was, that all candidates were seen and heard on TV.(or it seemed to me they were) now, if you have 6 people running for president, only 3 get to be interviewed on the Sunday talk shows. Only 4 will be allowed in the debates. The one with the biggest wallet wins...

The 2 Party System is going to ALLOW you to abolish the 2 Party System. Unlike most of America, they will not vote against their own best interests. It's all about retaining power.

I don't know about anyone else, but I wasn't even aware this Gary Johnson existed or that he was even running for president, until a week or so ago. No press coverage, no interviews, no nothing.

I got ya. Totally understand. True, very true. There are a lot of things about this country that need reforming, but I don't know how that will come about except baby steps......

And here's some sugar for your high horse...lol.
