    Gee, that wasn't a question plant, was it?

    And ol' Hill makes this comment despite the attitude of the American electorate and what it thinks is important right now. Remember this Gallup poll earlier this month?

    Um, let's see, where's "climate change" on that list? Oh yeah, there it is ... way, way, way down at the bottom -- long after the economy, spending and the deficit, healthcare, unemployment, the size and power of the federal government, etc., etc., etc.

    Yeah, I know it was a climate conference, but at some point reality has to set in, or they can just kiss Congress and the White House good-bye, it will be a long time before they hold either -- which is just find with me.

    It's politics. They're playing to their base.

    Other issues I don't see on that list for:

    Democrats
    The 'growing' income gap
    Gun control

    Republicans
    Gay marriage
    Abortion

    Tea Party/Libertarians
    the size and power of corporations
    legalization of drugs
    Federal Reserve

    Yup, those too. I'm sure she'll mention all of those before she gets to Gallup's "Top Five" -- if she ever does. :rolleyes:

    I think that Hillary will be very difficult to beat in 2016. Michael Barone says that she has had a health scare:

    Nevertheless, I myself think that she is running. I think that the Democrat base will turn out for her. Gays and lesbians still have lots of cash to donate. Jews are still solidly liberal. Blacks will revere her for promising to carry on with a single-payer healthcare system that will benefit Democrats most of all.

    Also, Hillary has a lot of cash accumulated to finance a campaign. The Democrats are very wealthy and people such as Soros has billions to do donate and Warren Buffet (a major donor to abortion causes) will want to see abortion carried on. Not having any inroads into the middle class except on the coasts, the Democrats want to continue to destroy the middle class.

    Who exactly do the Republicans have to run? That party is so splintered that it will take 20 years for them to offer a mainstream candidate again that has a ghost of a chance of getting elected. Sarah Palin for VP? What a joke that was.

    Unfortunately, there is a majority of Americans who want all the freebies they can get, and the Democrats will promise those freebies to them, and scare them into believing the Republicans will take them away.

    The Republicans will do a poor job of explaining why government cannot give freebies to everyone and will come off as the guys that threw Granny off the cliff once again.

    In addition, the Democrats will have illegals voting five times at every polling station, while the Republicans will be afraid to try to stop it and be accused of bigotry.

    The Democrats have found a winning formula.

    Palin was correct in predicting that an Obama win would mean a Russian invasion of the Ukraine.

    Careful, CMG, you're gonna mess up somebody's mind by citing FACTS rather than pre-programmed talking points. :thumbs:

    OK, Just-want-peace! A Democrat is someone who thinks like Marx, rules like Stalin, and lives like Rockefeller.

    Actually, you could have said "thinks, rules and lives like Stalin," because he did. :laugh:

    If you that Palin was an acceptable candidate for Vice President of the United States you're as much a fool as she is. She and the vast majority of "Tea Party" candidates simply aren't qualified to hold office.

    I would have taken a veteran governor of several years over a newly elected senator with no prior government service any day.

    They're both neocons. The only difference between the two is how they would go about taking us into more wars.

    Palin would take us into them unilaterally while Obama prefers to use the "international community" for cover.

    Either way the neocon "war for the world" would still be carried forward. Palin waves the US flag and Obama waves the UN flag. It all comes down to the same thing. More war and debt and less freedom.
