    Can he do something first? Can he do is job as Senator and then get re-elected and then consider running for President?

    He just doesn't seem to really know what he is saying. He is reading and it is going over his head.

  • comment on a post A Dead National Dialogue over 7 years ago

    It's just sad. I have always been interested in history and politics. I love reading history. Stories and analysis of important military battles, or great political battles or biographies of politicians, the endless topic fascinates me. But I just don't understand this. Why are other politicians not pulling him to the ground and beating him. Why are the American people not screaming tonight and throwing food at the TV?

    This is awesome and I stand and cheer, but when I read this in The Independent:

    "...Iraq's massive oil reserves, the third-largest in the world, are about to be thrown open for large-scale exploitation by Western oil companies ... The US government has been involved in drawing up the law, ... It would give big oil companies such as BP, Shell and Exxon 30-year contracts to extract Iraqi crude and allow the first large-scale operation of foreign oil interests in the country since the industry was nationalised in 1972 ... The huge potential prizes for Western firms will give ammunition to critics who say the Iraq war was fought for oil. They point to statements such as one from Vice-President Dick Cheney, who said in 1999, while he was still chief executive of the oil services company Halliburton, that the world would need an additional 50 million barrels of oil a day by 2010. "So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies," he said ..."

    My hope is crushed. Nothing stops the big oil companies...nothing...nothing.

    When was the last time a President rearranged his Generals like Bush Jr. is doing? Lincoln during the Civil War?

    Yeah, Ford was a loser. And don't forger a member of the Warren Commission. These old Republicans have dark pasts.

  • comment on a post Moving Away from the 1960s Left over 7 years ago

    This analysis is awesome. But please don't forget the assassinations of the 1960's. Some of the most important of The Left's leaders were killed. The Right did not have that problem.

    The King and RFK assassinations left some true believers so despondent that they disappeared from politics.

    The assassinations of the 1960's have not been part of any historical or cultural analysis. They are usually simply, sadly mocked.

    Nixon's Presidency is one result.

  • comment on a post Universal Health Care Run by Psychotics over 7 years ago

    Universal health care is the key to American success in the 21st Century. Not only will it focus our attention back onto ourselves as a nation and a people, it will help reorganize and revitalize our society and our economy.

    This will be the fight of the century. I'm all in!
