Why the hell aren't conservatives up in arms at their party's "picking" of patt nominees instead of bowing to the will of the people and/or promoting some anti insiders??
You didn't give us Independents and swing voters any body to vote for BUT Obama. You wouldn't back McCain. In hind sight with how he was forced to pick Palin I can see why. But why in the hell don't you get off yer ass and promote a candidate that is capable of staying out from under the big wings of graft till he at least straightens a few things out???
Tell me why do you let some obscure back room moombas pick yer damned candidate? At least with the Democrats it will be their own mistake not that they had to vote for a guy the national convention felt should be up there.

What he forgot to mention is that these same polls show that 84% of French citizens believe Trump is 'racist', 83% say he's "dangerous" and 79% say he's "incompetent"

Thanks for pointing the polls out!

Wasn't obscure and wasn't back room...

I hate to tell you, but the very first four states' Republican primaries resulted in FOUR different candidates...

It was the media that kissed McCain's butt until he became the eventual nominee (and the media, designed, immediately turned against him for the more left candidate)...

Maybe next time people will think for themselves.
We need a national observation of "turn the boob tube and the radio/Internet off for a week"

It's pretty easy to blame everyone else while you sit on the fence isn't it?

Actually didn't Calderon address him as "President Boy"?

Sorry but what does that have to do with what I said about Obama letting the President of Mexico tell him what to do?
