Haha, I know nothing about politics. I just want to keep the thread going in a positive way.
If i put my thoughts in here i would have to can myself I'm not smart enough for these politics threads. Not book smart at all.(Probably just because i do not care/put effort into these type of deals) Just smart enough to know what i should and shouldn't like or not like,do or feel.
But since you asked me.
I was hoping he would run, Just fresh meat. And i think he knows how to make/spend money. I think he would make a big change (risk), and after 4 years he would be done. Whether it was good or bad.
I feel like Obama has made a big change for the good. Not sure if that is because i don't read into things i see or hear.
Romney ... I was planned on voting for him just because, there are some things Obama has done that i don't agree with. After watching and listening to Romney he sorta scared me off. Nothing really majorly , i just don't feel him.
Will probably make my final decision when it comes right down to it. I really cannot see myself voting for Obama.
If you ask any coal miner (where i work) who they are voting for. They will say not Obama (No matter who is running against him)
There is a couple of Bobkyle2s thoughts. Take em or leave em
Since Mrs. Baitey may not be available, I'm a retired teacher of 31 years who among other subjects taught political science! I have a Life Credential which is in force, so I'm giving you an "A" on your last post!
I agree with you ! See, we can agree on some things !
If you don't mind me asking ? When you were teaching, did you give letter grades, or was it pass/fail ?

Romney and his camp theorized that there is a percentage of people that will, no matter what, vote for Obama. He then went on to mention different groups that comprise the "47%". Those people are not who he is trying to convince to vote for him as they will not change their minds. The left are saying that Romney doesn't care at all about 47% of the people in this country. That is not what he said. It was in reference to working at getting voters to vote for him.
Ok, now I'm going to tell you what I heard after listening many times. My guess is you won't agree, but what the hell.... I'll take a shot at it!
The video does explain itself!
After Romney introduced Ryan, I heard the crowd start out chanting Ryan-Ryan-Ryan and then Romney was added to the chant and it came out Ryan-Romney, Ryan-Romney! I think then Romney probably thought that was funny and jokingly corrected the crowd to chant to Romney-Ryan as the ticket goes!
The reaction of the Joe Scarborogh, an ex-Republican legislator, on MSNBC seemed to me to be that it could looked desperate when a candidate leads a cheer for himself if shown out of context! My take is that Romney was having fun with the crowd because their chant was backwards and he was reversing the chant to Romney-Ryan..
It is really stretching along way to get some MSNBC plot of it! Where's the big damage! Who cares? Nothing there! If they had falsified something like the 47% comments that could actually damage Romney I would see your point, but whatever you think they allegedly did does no political harm to Romney! Who cares! In fact it showed a pleasant sense of humor when Romney corrected the crowd.
Joe, the host, was likely reacting to how Romney would look pretty desperate and lame if the clip is edited to show..... Romney leading a chant for himself out of context!
No harm, no foul!
You are on a roll ? I have to agree with you about this being a non-issue ! In fact this is such a non-issue that CNBC should not have even showed the footage ?
Which just goes to show how desperate they are to deceive ?
Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't you the same guy that was throwing a fit over Eastwoods empty chair bit at the RNC ? (you know what they say about art imitating life )Are you beginning to see how your standards change for YOUR self interest ? Obama has disrespected himself long before Eastwood . It might of been after the third or fourth late show taping, among other things ? And you don't seem to have a problem with Clinton getting under the desk ?
So please share but keep it fair, or you will continue to get the BS flag thrown !
