Almost universally, topix AGW deniers come from a background of political conservatism, built on ego.

'fun farts', universally uses his ego to promote his 'fun facts', when he only promotes 'fun farts'. He couldn't go into any series of upper class college mathematics, physics, astronomy, engineering, & chemistry classes without flunking enmasse.

His life is built on ego, as almost all topix AGW deniers' lives are, upper post included.

Good enough. I will watch him crash and burn on the big stage now. If he'd kept to the sidelines, he could probably have continued posting meaningless nonsense like you. But in the glaring media spotlight, he is bound to become a pitiful loser.

I think there is a very good change that Obama will win re-election. That doesn't change the fact that I agree with Paul Ryan's positions on AGW.

Commander in Portland says they are standing down and following GSA’s request to only intervene if there is a threat to public safety,” she added in the email.

Peck -- who later resigned amid revelations his agency held lavish junkets at taxpayers' expense -- replied:“Caitlin: yes, that is our position; it’s been vetted with our administrator and Michael Robertson, our chief of staff, and we have communicated with the WH [White House], which has afforded us the discretion to fashion our approach to Occupy issues…The arrests last week were carried out despite our request that the protesters be allowed to remain and to camp overnight…”

The arrests Peck referred to were carried out by Portland police in riot gear. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the emails show the White House was protecting Occupy protesters.

"We now have a new GSA scandal -- one that involves the Obama White House," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "These documents clearly show that federal agencies colluded with the Obama White House to allow the Occupy Wall Street protesters to violate the law with impunity. These documents tell us that the GSA and DHS can't be relied upon to protect federal workers or property."

In a written statement sent to FoxNews.com , a spokeswoman for the GSA responded, "The General Services Administration worked closely with the Portland Police Bureau and the Federal Protective Service (FPS) in maintaining the health and safety of the general public, protesters and federal employees during last year's Portland Occupy protests- however FPS and local law enforcement had the best understanding of the situation on the ground in Terry Schrunk Park, and determined the necessary action. "

The Occupy Wall Street movement began in lower Manhattan last September as a protest of wealth inequality and government corruption. The protester took inspiration for their protests from the Arab Spring and set up an encampment in Zuccotti Park near the Financial District.

The protests had spread with encampments set up in nearly every major city in North America..

I agree that picking a younger and more right wing version of the republican ideal is a good strategy to win the right wing. And the more irrational the right wing gets, the better are Obama's chances of a second term.

He doesn't HAVE a position on AGW. He is denying it and refusing to look at it. So sure, you agree since that is EXACTLY what you do. All that says is that he is no better than a spammer on topix.

Nuff said. Maybe he has some good points that just haven't come out yet.

Do you know that "he is denying it" and just what is he denying? Do you know he is "refusing to look at it"? How do you know this?

I agree. Romney's chances of election depend more on who won't vote for Obama again. Romney is not the 'favorite son' of the far right, he's far more moderate than they like.

And yes the far right has some radical views, as does the far left. I prefer the middle and will vote for the middle or as close to the middle as I can get.

Failing to complete an educational level he pretends he has, he believes he can assign homework. I love topix AGW deniers to remain as stupid as they have chosen to be.

Romney could have picked Zippy the wonder slug and that pick would still outshine the dud we have in biden. Picking Ryan won't add ant obama voters, they are just koolaid slurping lemmings. But it will sway a lot of undecideds and independants Romneys way. Remember now obamas shrill mouthpiece michelle gaffed yesterday that 'undecided voters are knuckleheads'. Thanks chelly, you swung a lot of undecideds to the 'I decided anything but the headuptheirbutt elitists in the white hut now' and swung their votes to Romney. Liberal brains and mouths, a terrible thing to waste.
