    And I couldn't consider voting for a Republican at all unless they became socially liberal, but then I don't really agree with their economic policies...so
    The thing is, Texas will not go democrat as most people in Texas, as supported by almost every election in the past 25 years or more have shown.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    You said "sham" and "Al Gore" in the same sentence without equating the two. I found that humorous. =)

    i actually dont think either of them two will run. well its possible they might run but theres no way palin gets nominated, i just cant see the republican party giving her the nod. republican candidates i would suspect will be rubio, christie, and rand paul. those i would expect to be the front runners.

    as for democrats, well its certainly possible clinton will run but i dont think she'll win the nomination. i think if kerry stays on as sec of state he'll run for president

    The only thing it speaks volumes about is that the left, both politicians and media, are just as willing to use condescending sexism and cultural intolerance as anybody else. If there's one good thing about the 2008 election it's that it brought out the worst of the left's hypocrisy in this regard.

    i guess that makes me sexist because i would rather have a candidate who has reasonable views and is knowledgeable about the job at hand. i dont care which side its from but so far neither side has yielded any impressive candidates.

    Uh, no? Unless you think women are inherently precluded from that or something. What a nonsensical statement otherwise.

    No one who doesn't watch Fox News cares about Benghazi. Fox hammered that "scandal" hard every day for weeks before the election. Know what effect it had? None. No one gave even a fraction of a portion of a rat's left ass cheek.

    No. Palin was not lambasted because she was a woman. She was lambasted because she was a moron who thought "what do you read?" was a curveball.

    didnt she also have problems with remembering basic geography? although that could have been due to stress.....but still it is distressing when you see a candidate on tv regularly getting basic continents/locations mixed up. if they can't manage that kind of stress without cracking then i hate to think what will happen when they get into the white house.

    This is what I mean about people being out of touch with the right. Plenty of people I know don't watch Fox News and cared about Benghazi.

    I cared about what happened at Benghazi. Benghazi-gate is a fucking joke of a lie perpetuated by one side that is trying to make the other side look bad.

    This wasn't directed at me, but answering anyway: I'm not really here to defend Palin, in fact I'm here to say there's no chance she'll be a serious candidate. I doubt even she'd be stupid enough to consider that. The main point I'm trying to make is that anyone who honestly thinks she'll be running in 2016 is more out of touch than the GOP itself, and that's saying something. That or they're so far up their own ass with the "politics game" that they've lost all perspective on reality, and only believe it will happen because of how bad an idea it would be.

    I think Jeb Bush is fairly popular among conservatives. Liberals won't vote for him but... liberals weren't going to vote for a republican anyway. So I don't see it weighing him down too much.

    Only a moron would attribute an attack like that on 9/11 to be caused by a video. I knew immediately that the video excuse was bullshit, so I'd like to think Obama, with all the intelligence at his disposal, would be smarter than that.He's either a liar or far more stupid than I'm giving him credit for.

    I for one am sick of the Bushes and don't like political dynasties in general. I have no idea what size of a minority I am among politically right-oriented people though.

    Only a moron would discount the effect of propaganda while essentially complaining about propaganda in the same post.

    So propaganda turned Obama into a temporary retard is the excuse you're going with? Please. Or do you actually believe his story about the video causing it even after he's recanted, and think alternate explanations are the propaganda?

    /yawn. More rhetoric. Your statement that 'I knew it was a lie INSTANTLY' just shows you don't feel you can believe anything that comes from 'the other side'. Your views on politics is all about where you get your views from, not how factually sound those views actually are.

    Except if you consider that Texas's population has been growing steadily Democrat.
