    One thing about politics: move fast.
    This is old 24 hours after it comes out.
    And it came out months ago.

    You should be talking about the "Housing Issue," which is, anyways, much more amusing. :)

    But then, where would we get if we all thought that... No one would run it, there`d be no government, and everything would be in shambles.

    That was not a joke. A joke consist of a set up, a punch line, and a laugh.

    Let`s see...Washington DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa all hold primary elections and get to vote, so that`s 55 voting states right there. I`m sure I`m forgetting two more. A quick glance at the map suggests Wake Island and Midway Island as likely 56th and 57th voting states, in the sense that a "state" is one of several self-governed entity that constitute a nation.

    On that note, did you know that Mexico`s full name is the "United States of Mexico" - true fact, look it up

    Also, is anyone seriously voting for McCain? I don`t think he can take the excitement of winning, he seems like he`s going to drop dead any second.. I really don`t think the countries fate belongs in the hands of a dude who doesn`t remember how many houses he has, or one that wants to keep everyone over seas for 100 years.

    Obama mis-speaks the odd time. Bush sounds like a windowlicker every time he opens his c*ck-shaped mouth.

    p.s. If you don`t know what a windowlicker is, have you ever been stuck in traffic bheind the special bus? I rest my case.

    I keep worrying that Obama`s not going to pull enough votes unless he chooses Clinton as his running mate, which he won`t.

    I don`t want to grow up in McCain`s world.

    Ryan:
    The latter part of your statement is the exact same kind of idiocy that`s perpetuated by the media. If you don`t understand the concept of "being overseas for 100 years," again, your education has failed you.

    Tell me how many bases we have, in how many countries we have them, and tell me if we still occupy sites of past wars, like Korea, Japan, Germany, etc. The statement by McCain about being Iraq for 100 years is an absolute no matter who is elected now (that means Obama, too!) and no matter who is elected in the future. Unless...of course...we get some REAL change. Non-intervention ftw! :D

    If you listen to what he actually said, it`s obvious that he meant 47. He said he has one state left to go because he can`t do Alaska and Hawaii, so clearly that`s 47. Stop the press, he said the wrong word.

    Plagiarizing Biden, yessir.

    Unfortunately, Obama is looking for someone to get him level with the GOP on foreign policy experience. Funny how Biden has leaned Republican with his foreign policy. Obama is now, essentially, taking a Republican platform for his VP.

    Interesting! Can`t wait to see how this plays out.

    Biden was my choice for the Dems.

    I think McCain has to go with Lieberman, there is no way he wins without him.

    Opie: Say it again, in the past tense. It`s okay though, because the supporters have moved on and are making a difference in a bigger way. Bottom up. I speak from experience in my area. HUGE changes. Tale for another time. If you try to go to Ron Paul`s website, see what happens. Surprise! Yay!

    primetimekin:
    It`s funny how they`re using their VPs to take the other party`s platform! And I agree, Ron Paul looks like a grandfather who`d give you lemonade and tell you stories at sunset on the front porch of a whitewashed house. That he built.

    *Ahem* Anyways, he is a true gentleman with steadfast, yet VERY simple ideas. It showed in the debates.

    No, not exactly. Clinton supporters won`t give up on Clinton being the nominee. Or, they piss & moan about it and go support someone else.

    Ron Paul supporters? They have moved on, they started the Campaign for Liberty, they are running candidates LOCALLY who uphold what they believe in. We even have a nominee (locally!) for State Rep., one of my best friends,actually.

    What are Obama supporters doing? "Hoping" that Obama will "Change" everything for the better. They are NOT involved, hear, NOBODY`S supporters are as involved and making as much change as us Paultards. :)

    Opie: Perhaps. But the President, as outlined in the..dare I say..Constitution, has limited powers anyways. Again, all politics are local. The federal government is not supposed to have so much power or control over us as sovereigns. The states, too, are sovereign. The Presidential Election shouldn`t be this important, but it is because we are giving power to what is, essentially, a dictator.

    I dunno about the presdiency being a dictatorship. Bush has seized a lot of power I`ll give you that, more than he should have for sure. But I like the federal gov. as a whole. keeps the states in line, makes sure they adhere to the Constitution. Something I think is sorely needed. After all, you wouldn`t trust a state like Miss. in control of administering civil rights cases would you???

    Executive orders=dictatorship
    Federal Reserve=dictatorship
    Taxing Labor=dictatorship

    If we could all sit down and really look at the Constitution, we would realize how much it`s being walked on by our elected officials. The Federal Government has no place, and certainly no track record to give it place, to make sure the states do anything. Its job is outlined CLEARLY, and it involves very, very, VERY few things. The Department of Education, for example, sounds pretty, but it`s not Constitutional!

    I`m pretty sure the Constitution is supposed to be the glue for the states, It is the Law of the Land, it binds the Union together. I mean, we`re not 13 colonies anymore, there is a central gov. w/ divided powers to make sure tyranny doesn`t result.

    Yeah, `cause the Republicans never do the same when their politicians are caught doing anything stupid.

    Like soliciting men to have sex in an airport...

    or covering up unlawful campaign contibutions...

    or having an affair at the same time they`re indicting a Democratic president in a sex scandal.

    no way in hell is Middle Amerikkka electing Obama

    Heck I remember when I heard the name for the first time. Osama Obama Barack? Huh???!

    Hearing he at least SAYS he wants to stimulate the economy by focusing on alternatives (not nuclear)<g> makes me lean his way. . .but sadly middle america will decide

    my MIL to my dh. . ."so if Obama wins do you think he will pack us all on a leaky boat and ship us off to Africa? And then of course ship blacks back."

    I am not related to these people by blood. . .my family would have been much more subtle in it`s racism.

    Oh yeah he has a chance in hell. . .did I mention this mid-west idealogy was in NY near Buffalo. . . that makes a lot of mid west and a lot of south. . .Everybody loves old white masters er I mean guys. .

    He was either trying to say 47, or he could be including territories of the U.S.

    I would bet he wasn`t talking about any territories, mainly because only the 48 continental states plus Hawaii and Alaska are counted as votes for our president. He wouldn`t waste time or money in territories campaigning. I would also bet that he meant 47, as mentioned before. You have to realize that these people work much longer days than most people think. They are stressed out of their minds. Heaven forbid he doesn`t get elected because he said 57 instead of 47 states, because I know that everybody here has never f`d up a line or word while speaking in front of your class.

    Get real people.

    What we have here is either a case of verbal mistake, or a poorly executed joke.
    After 8 years of President who barely is capable of forming complete sentences this hardly seems worth batting an eye over. If it`s a poor joke well, so is the country right now.
    But ya you guys are right..What an idiot, let`s vote McCain dude`s got at least 4 houses!!

    legacy, on leaving the country...please do.

    We have the freedom to criticise our leaders in a free democratic society without fear of reprisal. We have the duty to criticise our leaders when they screw up and put the rest of us in danger. If you really want censorship over what you can say about authority, go to Russia, where they kill journalists who express a contradictory opinion.

    If your relative persecuted during Castro`s regime could see the way you promote the sedition act today he would be so proud...

    Also, is anyone seriously voting for McCain? I don`t think he can take the excitement of winning, he seems like he`s going to drop dead any second.. I really don`t think the countries fate belongs in the hands of a dude who doesn`t remember how many houses he has, or one that wants to keep everyone over seas for 100 years.""

    Well, that`s why his VP is so important. If he manages to keel over, then his VP will become president...

    i thought it was hilarious how obvious liberals were both defending obama w/ 2 completely different ideas. and all those who dont like mccain b/c hes old: old people live forever. the guy survived a pow camp, he can survive 4 years as president. adn biden is most certainly NOT a republican. mccain is barely a republican. i think obama should b president though so that we can see how horrible he and all other democrats politics are and it will then be a republican president. after all, there is a saying, it took a carter to get a reagan.

    The right to "criticize"? We have the right to petition for a redress of grievances, which is FAR greater, but FEW do it. But guess what! The government won`t respond anyways. I speak from experience. You get a canned letter and you have zero effect. Even if you have a loooooong list of names signed on a petition.

    One of the last straws for our Founding Fathers was Britain`s refusal to respond to redresses of grievances.

    Obama messes up some wording and everyone apologizes for him, stating he obviously meant the correct wording.

    I should say the "duty to criticize". That won`t do jack, and you all know it. You have the duty to hold your politicians accountable by redress and impeachment. We hire them. We pay them. If we are not satisfied with their work, we fire them. Too simple...

    Some golden Bushisms: "Is our children learning?"
    "The terrorists will never stop thinking of ways to undermine our country, and neither will we."
    "It`s getting harder for OBGYNs to practice their...their...love with women."

    It`s like the reasoning goes like this:
    All tricky people are smart
    No tricky people should be trusted
    therefore
    No smart people should be trusted.

    About experience. Where is the great cosmic measuring cup of experience anyway? How do you measure something so ephermeral?
    What experience does Mccain have for being Prez?
    And don`t say age, just cuz a man`s old doesn`t mean he`s wise. Or that he`s a war hero, so was Grant and his prez. was a gigantic failure.

    What experience did Lincoln, this hick trained lawyer from Ill. have about dealing w/ a civil war. What exp. did JFK have, this young untried senator from Mass. have about dealing w/ something as huge as the Cuban Missle Crisis?

    Ya know, you`re absolutely right. We should just elect those w/the requsite Presidential experience... former presidents...

    I don`t think Mccain could win unless he had Jesus Christ as a running mate. Mccain has also had his fair share of reversals of policy too, both are equally guilty of shameless pandering.

    Don`t get me wrong, I could vote for a Rep. if
    They actually cared about civil rights: Earl Warren (yes, I know he was a supreme court justice but stick w/ me)
    The environment :Teddy Roosevelt
    And had the guts to stand up to the forces of monopoly and vested corporate interest: Again Teddy.

    I will also grant you Ike, he was after all the first to warn us of the military-industrial complex.

    I think it`s fairly silly, if not plain ignorant, for anybody to be judging the outcome of this election. McCain & Obama both have their own issues, and if you step back and look, they are running neck & neck. Nobody here has a crystal ball.

    And just as usual, the media is blowing out of proportion the whole VP pick. Do you really believe anybody will change their vote based on the VP? This is targeted at the "Undecided" voters, who have more issues to worry about than the VP. The chances that it will come down to which VP is better to this undecided voter are not very large considering how much we have to hear about it.

    "Let`s see...Washington DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa all hold primary elections and get to vote, so that`s 55 voting states right there. I`m sure I`m forgetting two more. A quick glance at the map suggests Wake Island and Midway Island as likely 56th and 57th voting states, in the sense that a "state" is one of several self-governed entity that constitute a nation."

    O bama said he needed to go to one more state and that he was not allowed to go to hawaii or alaska meaning that if there were 57 states he would have gon only to 54.
