What a great distraction these primaries are to get all the media attention from real issues, such as the disastrous war in Iraq, housing meltdown, discussions of torture techniques by Cheney and company, $ 4/gallon gas and $ 4.20/gallon diesel fuel, exporting more and more jobs to China, failing to deal with the illegal immigration issues, spying on US citizens without warrant, and the list goes on and on. How great that we devote 90% of the media time to BS like what OBAMA said in PA. Guess what? I do not care!

In the meantime Bush and Cheney get to plan another disastrous adventure - this time bombing Iran, without as much as consulting the Congress, which is pandering to Bush's every whim. Just why are they so afraid of this character with less than 30% approval rating?

They only dwindle when you quote Kierkegaard....

JK Rowling has more money than Kierkegaard, but is less attractive to the average Cuban male.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

I think what he said is absolutely true. Mr. Obama's biggest sin seems to be that he talks to the voters like they were adults.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

We have lots of time. There will be lots of time to discuss all of that. It is in that reality that one sees the ultimate destruction of the fascists who have ruined this country with war and debt.

How dare he treat these people like adults, the Clintons must be outraged that he is not following their method of spoon feeding the public only what they them to know...............
