au contraire. i was 18 in 1992 and Bill Clinton was my very first vote.
The main reason I am with Obama is that I look back and those eight years of Bill did nothing to change the country PERMANENTLY for the better. Yes, good economy, blah blah blah.
Economies come and go. But Bush has permanently damaged our country and accomplished TEN times as much bad as Clinton did good, even thought they both had/have eight-year presidencies.
I don't want a return to a do-nothing-permanent 1990s. And before you attack and cite all the things Clinton did, remember I said the word, "permanent."
The only major things Clinton did good that lasted was his two Supreme Court picks. And those picks were too old. We need to appoint liberals in their forties to the Court. Not over-the-hill folks who, while great progressives, won't be on the Court for very long and would be replaced by rightwing jurists.
Janet is the ARIZONA governor, you know, that state that is twice as large as NM per population? as well as now having as many electoral votes as Missouri.
on the immigration issue, Barack isn't going to gain SHIT by being conservative on immigration. i wonder if anyone told his father that he "must speak english." There's nothing in the constitution about language.
If Obama ain't careful, he's gonna get swamped by HRC in those big states of Cali, NY, and NJ with the massive latino populations. Hispanics already have a resentment about being a very neglected minority and are wary that with a black president they'll be neglected even more.
My prediction is that Hillary makes a HUGE push to get these latinos. Obama is an idiot if he starts trying to be the "centrist alternative."
But I guess in this country today, it's okay to be racist against Hispanics but if you even say the word, "fairytale", you're KKKer. And I say this as Obama supporter.
