If you had half of a brain, you would understand that there's not a liberal in history that could lead a horse to water. Look at the dumbest president in U.S. history, Odummer. Gas prices are double since he took office, unemployment rates, odummercare, Russia's beoch, illegal aliens, and the rest of the world thinks our country is toilet paper. I'd say that liberals are someone that would make your parents want to hang themselves if their family found out that their kids were acting this way.

You're politicizing a post that had nothing to do with Obama. Ex-cop posted something about liberals from UVA, and I posted a link to notable UVA alumni, from John C. Stennis (an air craft carrier was named after him) to Edger Allen Poe (an author I doubt you've heard of) and Bobby Kennedy to Maj. Gen. William J. Crumm. There are liberal and conservative notables from UVA. It was a stupid post, almost as stupid as yours.
.
It is clear that you have no idea how the gasoline market works. Did you know that the US is a net exporter of gasoline? Did you know that gas prices are not double under Obama, unless you use a selective time period. The #1 reason gas prices are so high is that China and India are industrializing rapidly. In May of Ď07 the average price of gas was above $4/gal, in Feb of '08 it dropped to just above $1.60, and in Nov of '08 it climbed back up to just below $3/gal. This means that prices have actually come down under Obama.
.
Now I donít like to buy into conspiracies, but the fact that the price plunged so low and then climbed back up after the election is suspect.
.
I'm not a fan of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but there are items in it that prevents insurance companies from defrauding purchasers of their product. I am more of a fan of the single payer system if that's the route that's inevitable.
.
I don't know what you mean by "Russia's beoch." You clearly don't know what you're talking about in that regard. If you're talking ND (nuclear disarmament) would you please explain to me why we need enough nukes to destroy the entire planet over 300 times?(Once should be enough, don't you think?)
.
*Sigh* Illegal aliens... really? We have deported more illegal aliens and conducted more raids on plants that hire illegals since pre-Reagan.(Who, by the way, gave mass amnesty to illegal aliens.)
.
My old man, who had an office in the Pentagon, is plenty proud of his war era veteran son.
.
I'm not fan of Obama, but you didn't mention one true statement about his administration. There's plenty to dislike about his administrationís policies without having to lie

What are your main gripes against Obama?
I think the rationale for the number of nuclear weapons is equilibrium in MAD, something START and other treaties hope to address. We should outlaw Congress from interfering in implementing the conditions of these treaties to disarm. Actions like this -

That Cantor -- he'll talk to a hundred students, but runs like stink from the constituents who challenge him. Having him talk about leadership is like having Newt Gingrich talk about martial fidelity.

A snake is a snake till the head is cut off. Cantor undermines his own party members with secret donations to a super pack. That's the way to go Cantor

Cantor undermines his whole country by making conflict of interest investments and by refusing to compromise.

No arguments there, although I think our judicial system may be strong enough to keep Patriot act abuses in check. Otherwise is he generally on the right track?

It is shocking that Honorable Mr Cantor

- calls in police to resist hearing from his constituents openly and honestly
( at August meeting 2011, at Holiday Inn, Chesterfield County, Cantor used Chesterfield County police, and US Capitol police to stop/question/search the public whether they were attending his meeting, or not; and closed the meeting to the public that he didn't want to attend)

- supports legislation that suppresses LEGALLY REGISTERED VOTERS Americans and Virginians from access to voting; and supports the current Israeli administration that suppresses citizenship and voting even of those born and raised in Israel ( Los Angeles Times, January 12 2012)

- declines to support equal protection rights for Americans and Virginians who are eligible for Medicaid; federal regs allow state Medicaid to protect gay and lesbian vulnerable poor elderly but Virginia Medicaid and Virginia Governor has failed to discuss their plan to ensure equal protection for elderly vulnerable and poor gay and lesbian Virginians.

So, on this last point, wasn't it the Republicans who erupted with false slurs about 'death panels' in the Affordable Care Act? Which actually did not happen, and will not happen. BUT, Republicans are denying equal protections to gay and lesbian frail, vulnerable, poor Virginians and Americans: sounds like a 'let them die' panel to me!

And, btw, has Mr Cantor said anything about racial profiling, vigilante harassment of people of color and people who 'look like immigrants', etc? Has his office had ANYthing to say about the crisis in Florida?

Why do Virginians continue to elect and re-elect bigots like this? Why do Virginians who CAN vote, fail to vote? Who will make Cantor tell the truth about his bigotry? Who will make the others tell the truth about their bigotry?

I'm shocked that the ultra-liberal roaches infesting UVA did not burst into flames when they heard the true words of wisdom and leadership of one of the greatest Americans of our age!

What a SNOB. What a SNOB. Cantor going to a university. If he stays long enough he may gather enough intelligence to become a Democrat.

Unlike the above post by "excop" and "brain", both of whom are misnamed. They must be fans of Eric with their obvious hate and their insulting attitude. These are 2 of many who are poster children for high school drop-outs.

Have a good day.

STOP THE WAR ON WOMEN!
DON'T VOTE FOR GEORGE MACACA.
