    Lolz.

    Pretty funny coming from someone who posts 71.5% of the time during working hours.

    Besides, I'm not a plumber anymore. I work in an office. Because office work is so f*cking easy that even a plumber could do it....:

    No there's not.

    He knows that, all he as to do is look at the people who voted for him.

    Who gets credit for Obama's failures? Apparently it's Bain Capital.

    Pretty much why I refuse to feel bad over this, even though I know he was taken out of context...

    I just want one President to be able to run for a 2nd term and not have to smear the other guy to get back into office...

    One President to say, "hey, here's what I did so far" and that what he's done is actually enough to keep him in there for four more years...

    'D' or 'R' it doesn't matter... I'd vote 'D' if it were to ever happen, tbqh...

    Hey, Reagan never attacked Mondale. He was a gentleman.
    GWB didn't get too crazy against Kerry. GWB was also a nice guy.
    Both related what they had done.

    Clinton didn't attack Dole. Dole was simply not the guy for the job. It was obvious.

    Obama on the other hand is being a jerk. Certainly not out of character for him.

    According to the President:

    ....if he aspires to being president one of the things you learn is, you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations.

    As hope fads into recession blame of Bush will turn to blame of Bain Capital. There is little hope in scorched earth and it certainly doesn't represent change for those who run on failed policy.

    Sadly it will probably work, debate of ideas is way to unpredictable.

    The blame Bain line of attack is just a distraction. It doesn't work with independents. The only people that are talking about are Obama partisans. If that is what Barry is counting on to get himself reelected he is in big trouble. The Obama campaign has spend 100 million over the past few months pushing this line of attack and the polls haven't budged.

    What say you on this?

    I can definitely give the govt credit for much of MY success. I owe a lot to the military, including much of my education, and the mentors within the military that pushed me to succeed.
