Time to rebuild Republican's, let Obama win and sink for a few years and then we can take the country back with a strong Republican/conservative party, house, senate and President and fix the country again! McCain is not the man, he'll give conservatism a bad name! I hate to vote for a Dem, never have, never will?????Maybe now????? Undecided

Just my outlook on this!
While I agree in principal, knowing Obama, I'm not sure we'll have any guns left...............................BTW, I'm also a diehard conservative that could never bring myself to vote for Obama or Hillary.

Not sure how she's gonna do it, but she hasn't spent 11 million dollars of her and Bills' money for nothing. She's got something up her sleeve; Superdelegates, some kind of trash on Obama (pics of white women maybe?). Not sure of what it is, but I'd bet she's holding some kind of a trump card. My second part of that prediction is when she steals it from Obama, you're going to see big cities like Chicago, Atlanta,etc go up in smoke. The blacks will be up in arms and it'll be another LA riot but in every big city with a large black population.

My second prediction is going to be a LANDSLIDE victory for the Democrats. Why? Because theres A WHOLE LOT of disgruntled conservatives out there (including myself) that will refuse to vote for McCain, they'll either stay home or vote for Bob Barr (my choice so far) or Ron Paul. Too many people are like me and refuse to vote for that turncoat McCain. Let them win the election, by a HUGE LANDSLIDE, it will wake up the Republicans with a big slap and MAYBE they'll realize that the base of the Republican party won't put up with "leaning" to the left anymore. Worse case scenario is two years of leftist socialism that will be followed by the Republicans gaining back possibly both Houses come next election. I too am concerned with the Supreme Court judges that will be put in place. What makes you think that even if McCain gets in office, that he'll pick someone decent, and I guarantee you if it is someone conservative the Senate won't accept them, so he's shut down anyway even if he did choose a conservative, which is wishful thinking. Look at the man and who he's sided with in the past - he's not a conservative, he doesn't deserve to even call himself a Republican - HE'S A WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING!!!
Well the first prediction is out the window.

I tend to agree with your second one, but not for the same reasons stated here. A republican administration led us to war by lying about, or at the least distorting, the facts. And the price of gas is through the roof, partially because the dollar isn't worth a dollar anymore because of deficit spending to fund an uneccessary war in Iraq, which never needed to be fought. If we had spent the money to find and dispatch of Bin Ladin instead of Bush's war in Iraq, we'd have had Bin Ladin years ago, and the country would have way more international credibility than we have occupying Iraq. So I do think Barack Obama is likely to be our next president, simply because the Iraq war has been such a blunder.

phorwath, WHY are oil prices high?

For one reason Bill Clinton vetoed drilling in ANWAR! 1 million barrels of oil per day...not allowed!

It is illegal to explore the shale oil in the West.
It is illegal to drill off of the East Coast.
It is illegal to drill off of California and Florida!

ILLEGAL! That is Congress.

Oh, by the way China with Cuba are drilling off of Florida, but they are not US citizens subject to our Congress!!!

I do get it, you hate Bush. But who cares he is not running again, so who are you FOR?

Who will drill, who will build refineries, who will liquefy coal, who will gasify coal, who will build nuclear energy in America?

Be FOR something.

Give me a break gas prices are high because of Clinton? That's the worst view I have heard so far on high gas prices. Gas prices are high because of corruption and greed! And most of that is from the current bush administration.

Edge,

You'll have to find someone to fight with other than me. Some people can discuss politics without getting their panties in a wad, and some can't.

You don't know what you get and don't get about me. And you can't know what you don't know, which is who I hate or don't hate, or what I think about Bush, or Clinton, or anyone else. Cripes. Talk about wrapped around the axle. In my first interaction with you on this forum it's pretty clear that politics discussions are a waste of time with you. Your aggresive post won't win over many converts to your political position.

Be FOR something. Exactly what are you implying. Something positive about me? That I'm an intelligent person? An independent thinker who isn't swayed by other's antics or manipulation? I guess that's what you meant. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy. FOR typed in capital letters... is that supposed to impress me or others?

I'm comfortable with my prior post. Wouldn't change a thing.

To everyone other than Edge I post this:

With respect to the presidential candidates, Hillary is out of it. I posted earlier, that our choices were Obama or McCain. I'm for the better of those two. I won't waste my vote on a non-contender as a matter of principle or objection. We're stuck with one of these two candidates for the next for years, like it or not, unless one of them dies in office. I'm for the better of those two candidates. I'll consider their gun ownership position, their energy policy, their policy on the war against terrorism, their committment to using our financial and military power wisely rather than foolishly, and Iraq was a foolish waste of our resources. [Edge - I lied... the Iraq foolishness by Bush was for you. ]

Sure and having more oil would be bad for prices? Having more refining capacity would be bad for prices. Read the financial pages and you will learn that this is a lack of capacity, fear driven price increase. You have obviously zero knowledge about the futures markets.

phorwath, don't count Hillary out? The DNC rules allow the superdelagates to switch their votes as many times as they want.

The 527's will attack Obama until he is so damaged that they may have to switch back to Hillary. He is probably just too flawed to get elected and the superdelagates want to win, even at the expense of their beloved first man of color Presidential dreams.

edge.

PS I am sorry that your ego is too fragile to carry on a discussion. Too bad that chip on your shoulder makes you assume someone is fighting because they do not agree with your point of view. Sorry facts get in the way of your happy little delusions!
