Oh give it up.

Most people don't care about the mountain you're trying to make out of a mole hill because we have much more important things to focus on.

You're grasping at straws and it looks pathetic.

Nice thread by the way.

We're on page 3, so I guess some people care.

I understand the sentiment. I too think women get juged more harshly than men. However, even with that said, it's still true that Palin just wasn't ready for the job.

America has voted and wants Obama to be our next president. I hope we can all get behind that, no matter what your political persuasion is. And, I do hope that the media reports fairly about his administration. He's human, he will make some mistakes. Let's not have too high of an expectation either. It'll be interesting to see how the various media outlets report on his administration. CNN, Fox, the local networks, newspapers, radio. Interesting, indeed.

I was not the only one confused about the Selma speech. So was the Washingtonpost.com and many others.

http://blog.washingtonpost.com/fact-...onnection.html

As for Palin. There were enough post made where attacking her here. But also media and even a noose put around the neck of a mannequin at the home of someone for Holloween decoration. People out to get her are just plain mean and it doesn't stop. But once someone they like has the light shone on him unfavorably everyone gets so angry and condescending. Calling me names and making rude comment about me. Why?

I never call anyone names here and I will never stoop that low.

Didn't someone also make a mannequin dummy out of Obama and hung him from a tree like a lynching?

Unfortunately, crazy comes from both sides of the political fence. And how about the skinheads that wanted to kill black people and then Obama.
Unfortunately, there is sexism and racism in this country, along with other -isms too.

There were several. There was 1 instance that I read about Palin hung in effigy, but several that I read about Obama. And the poor cub bear that was killed.... don't even start. Still no argument OP. You should give it up.

Not sure if this was for me specifically, but I wasn't old enough to vote in 2000. I did vote for Bush in '04 because that was the only option I saw for this country. Not sure why that's relevant now.

It's not relevant at all, who you voted for then, and it makes me a little angry to have people personally blaming anyone who voted for Bush for all the things going on now. People make decisions based on their own personal opinions for what they think is best. And everyone is entitled to their opinion. The 'writing on the wall' will always be there for someone who wants to see it there, be it good or bad.

I don't agree that what you did in your past doesn't matter. I been voting since 1978 and I take my voting record very seriously. With Bush in the last election they were preying on fear and I think that if you let that get to you, it's extremely difficult to make an educated logical choice. McCain was doing the same think with the fear card. I find it offensive.

I changed my party affliation years back when I realized that I couldn't vote that party in two general elections. I think our party system needs a big overhaul and really instead of focusing on the "us against them" the country would be better served with a different system. I don't have that system. I'm a CPA not a PolySci expert.

I find Obama exciting because he is of mixed race and does so well represent the mixing bowl that our country really is, not the illusion that many racist people would like to believe. Maybe he will be able to unite this country and people will see that for the most part the same things matter to all of us. The people that we love and the quality of life that we lead. With that said, I don't think Obama is perfect. No one is perfect.
