Google some of what Hillary said about Bush after 9/11 and in the run-up to Iraq. She worked with Gingrich on an issue that I cannot recall. Photo ops with him and everything.
What about her flag-burning proposed amendment? The list of her co-sponsors is a who's who of GOP senators. She praised a lot of member of the GOP for sharing her belief that violent video games be more heavily regulated than they are now.
The point is that it doesn't matter. So Obama praises the intangibles of a dead ex-prez? Who cares? And really who cares if HRC worked on anything with Gingrich? I was just pointing out the inconsistency with what some HRC supporters are using to attack Obama.
I think that idea died with gays in the military. he made that promise and tried to implement it and it blew up in his face.
since then, I have really never seen a president really use what he campaigned on as an effective tool to use in order to implement a policy. remember Bush in 2000 ran AGAINST the nation-building that he embraced for Iraq.
IF, and that's a big "if", Huckabee were to somehow win the nomination, the powers that be in the GOP (read: business) will castrate his populist rhetoric and he'd run as a run-of-the-mill Republican when it comes to economic issues.
guns isn't worth reading. The Democratic Congress was politically tonedeaf on the issue and passed a crime bill that contained the dreaded gun control legislation in SEPTEMBER of 1994. My god. That would be unthinkable today.
We got killed in rural America that Novemeber and are just now recovering.
It wasn't gays, it wasn't healthcare (yeah, right, some hillbilly who NEEDS health care was all pissed and voted R to thwart his getting some coverage? haha, c'mon, that is health care industry propaganda), and it wasn't taxes.
Guns. Period. And Bill wrote about it in his book.
