It would take a major screw up for Barry to not be reelected.
The main problem with the GOP is that most if not all of their contenders are pseudo bat-shit crazy. They are yesterdays news (Romney? Yea right. Huckabee? Oh please. Palin? Not a chance.) They need someone who is right of center, fiscally conservative but socially centrist. Someone who will GTFO of Iraq and Afghanistan. No one gives a shit about gays getting married or serving in the military.
How about someone who will prosecute those Wall Street CEO’s who helped ruin the country ? Not one indictment, NOT ONE. [/quote]
I voted for Obama in 2008 and I think I tend to be left of you, but I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to vote for the candidate you describe here. I like Obama and I respect his intelligence, but I’d rather elect a Republican willing to cockslap the criminals that ruined this country’s economy and pull us out of these bullshit wars.
I think the GOP is more focused on 2016. Why run your best guy against Obama when you can waste some crazy old idiot in 2012 and then run a winner in 2016 against Clinton or Biden?[/quote]
Sooooo, you two are willing to vote for anyone promising you a witchhunt?
Well, a Mencken quote is in order:
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.[/quote]
I would hardly describe the criminal prosecution of people who committed massive financial fraud a fucking witch hunt.[/quote]
Now fraud is a strong word, with massive legal implications.
Almost like witchcraft and heresy.
If company A sells bundled mortgages to company B completely and utterly fails to do their job and look into those papers, fraud is not the word I would use.
It is fraud when A knows B has no job, no money down, credit worth of piss. Do you understand that in the application of a loan, the person writes down that they have no job, or that their income is low, or a downright lie as to the amount they claim they make? That’s not fraud?
