These debates are all boring so who cares.

And who says it's a given that Clinton can beat Huckabee? Of all the Republican candidates, he's the one I respect most. He has an advantage in that he is capable of getting the vote of the Christian right, so if he is nominated (instead of Giuliani), there's less of a change of the Christian right feeling that there's a need for an independent to run to represent their interests, and therefore the Republican vote will not be split. I'm not saying I want him to win, but I wouldn't go so far as to say Clinton could definitely beat him.

I think Huckabee may be the strongest Republican candidate because despite being a religious Christian, he does not scare the Left. Go figure . . . Giuliani has all those liberal opinions and yet he frightens us anyway. (Any of you who live in the New York area understand why; the guy is just crazy weird.)

The general does not appear to be wearing a Savile Row blend. He, I believe is wearing a Chinese petro-polymer.

It's hard to believe that a major news network like CNN would join forces with a Democratic Campaign like Hillary Clinton in an effort to sabotage the Republican Debate. This is not new however, in 2004 CBS joined forces with the Kerry campaign and allowed Dan Rather to use forged military documents in an effort to sabotage the Bush campaign. It's now being reported by Fox News that there were many other Democratic Operatives who were involved in this debate. If I was the Republican nominee, or even one of the other Republican candidates I would not go on another debate, especially with Hillary Clinton unless the network can assure them that no Democratic operative will influence the debate but will be run by professional journalists.

Stonewalling to the death : who does that? Perhaps her mother did it,
and taught her to do this, you suppose? One would have to check, to
see if Dorothy is on vacation.

Monica,

I wouldn't know for sure if the gay general was a plant but, because of CNN's political leanings, it wouldn't surprise me if some monkey business went on.

Talking about gays in the army--it would be most beneficial to them.
Should the Muslims ever take over this country they, of all people, would be most at risk.
In Islam, and in Muslim countries, their lifestyle is not tolerated, and many end up dead.
(I haven't checked it out, but I think that the Koran specifies that sodomites should be punished or executed)

FK

Why don't you check the Koran, and while you are at it, check out the Torah and the Bible, which also direct that homosexuals be executed. So our religious documents make us look just as absurd.

Ree

Why Dont' they ask Hillary Clinton, about don't ask don't tell, it is her husband's policy.

FK

You can't have it both ways. Does Hillary Clinton's time as First Lady count as political experience or not? If you think she should have to explain her husband's policies, then you are conceding that that time in the White House should be considered political experience for her. And that seems to counter what her adversaries assert, which is that her time as First Lady has no value politically.

So which is it?

SteveOk

If I was a Republican candidate for President I wouldn't participate in any more debates unless the network guaranteed that no Democratic operatives (especially from the Clinton campaign) were involved in any way with the debate. What Hillary did was dirty and unethical and similiar to something the mafia would do to its opponents. As for CNN, Wolf Blitzer layed down and rolled over during the CNN Democratic debate asking one softball question after the other, and then when CNN sponsers the Republican debate they let Democratic opertives run the debate. What a bunch of bottom feeding skanks.

FK

Did I miss something? Did Hillary have a garbage contractor shot in the a**?

Liberal thinking is dominated by an obsession with power
10 Steps to Understanding Liberal Thinking
By John Lillpop Thursday, November 29, 2007

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/809

--Satire--

The liberal brain does not collect and process information in a logical, reasonable, and objective manner. Rather, liberal thinking is dominated by an obsession with power, and use of that power to preserve elitist advantages.

This distorted perspective makes it very difficult to understand exactly how liberals think without advanced training in Abnormal Psychology.

Nonetheless, the following non-technical summary should be useful to lay people.

How liberals think on 10 major issues of the day:

1. The U.S. Constitution Is Unconstitutional

According to liberal dogma, the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights are unconstitutional because all were crafted by an exclusive conclave of white male Christians.

Women, Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians, gays, lesbians, transsexuals, the handicapped, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and the blind were all under represented, if at all.

Because of this devastating lack of diversity, the Constitution must be regarded as a “living document,” subject to change in accordance with ever changing demographics and contemporary values.

2. Free Speech

Freedom of speech must never be quashed, except for criticism directed at minorities and sensitive constituencies of the Democrat party.

Burning Old Glory is protected free speech, whereas expressions of conservative values by people like Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage are unacceptable “hate speech,” which must be subjected to “fairness” censoring by the federal government.

3. Abortion, the Death Penalty and Assisted Suicide

On issues of life and death, liberals are especially vulnerable to tripping on their own hypocritical double talk.

Namely:

A woman’s right to abort the life of an innocent child is inalienable; whereas execution of a convicted killer is cruel, unusual & barbaric.

Starving a helpless victim like Terri Schaivo to death is acceptable; but using lethal injection to end the life of a brutal killer is not.

4. Religion

Religious faith and belief in God are outdated pagan concepts, which do more harm than good. Sophisticated citizens can rely on the Democrat party for support from cradle to grave, obviating the need to rely on beliefs and rituals long since debunked.

Symbols of Christianity such as the Ten Commandments, the Cross, Christmas trees, nativity scenes, and the like must be hidden from public view so as to offend no one.

Publicly wishing a friend or family member “Merry Christmas” is clearly an act of civil disobedience and unconstitutional.

While Christianity is to be suppressed at all costs, Islam must be openly promoted in the name of religious awareness, sensitivity and tolerance.

The separation of state and government applies fully when dealing with Christianity or Judaism, but is irrelevant with regard to Islam and all other religions.

Delivery of Christmas cards and gifts by the United States Postal Service is an unconstitutional violation of state-religion separation and must end immediately.

5. Taxes

Leveling the playing field between haves and have-nots is the most important function of government, even more critical than national security.

To support that objective, no government role is more essential than levying and collecting taxes, otherwise known as redistribution of wealth.

Tax cuts are wrong when returned to people who actually paid taxes, but are perfectly fine when sent to those who paid none.

Although most liberals deny that Jesus even lived, many use the quote in Matthew 22:21, “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s...” to justify higher taxes.

Paying taxes is the “Christian Conservative” thing to do!

6. Marriage and Same-Sex Issues

The traditional American family consisting of one man and one woman is just one of several possible arrangements, all of which are equally moral and acceptable.

Marriage is no longer necessary to sanctify man-woman relationships.

Although the institution of marriage is no longer vital to heterosexual partners, it is absolutely essential that same-sex couples be allowed to marry. To deny them that basic right is discriminatory, immoral, unfair, and clearly unconstitutional.

7 Racism, Diversity and Affirmative Action

Liberals believe that discrimination based on race or gender is wrong. Except when waged against Caucasian men, in which case it is mandated by law and called Affirmative Action.

“Our Diversity Is our Greatest Strength” is the liberal pledge of allegiance to socialism.

Enforcing U.S. borders and immigration laws, including deportation of illegal aliens, is wrong because it targets Hispanics, obviously based on racial profiling.

Those who support English as the official language of America are racists. But those who prefer Spanish and other foreign languages over English are not because of the inherent value of diversity.

Conservatives who seek to preserve American language and culture are bigoted hate mongers, whereas new immigrants, including illegal aliens, must be allowed to maintain and celebrate their cultural heritage at all costs, even if it interferes with assimilation into mainstream America.

8. Preserving the American Dream for Working Class Americans

According to liberal propaganda, they are the only hope for American families, notwithstanding the fact that Democrats support the influx of millions of illegal aliens who work for lower wages and without benefits, and drive down the standard of living for working families.

Skyrocketing gasoline prices devastate working American families, but protecting Alaskan wild life is a greater priority.

Businesses are oppressive institutions that must not be allowed to become too large and powerful. By contrast, government creates wealth & happiness and should be expanded whenever possible.

Outsourcing of American jobs to foreign nations is driven by immoral corporate greed.

By contrast, open borders and amnesty are acceptable because most illegal aliens are future Democrats.

Huge profits are obscene and un-American, except when enjoyed by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, Teddy Kennedy, and other liberals.

9. Global Warming, the Environment, and Energy Independence

According to liberal technocrats like Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, and Dennis Kucinich, global warming is a greater threat to the health and well being of humanity than the war on terror.

Some liberal extremists even think that the colors of the American flag should be changed to green, white, and blue so as to reflect the importance of the environment to our nation, while simultaneously deleting the color red, which symbolizes blood shed in illegal wars waged by Bushes 41 and 43.

10. Use of Military Force, Invading Foreign Nations

Military force must never be used, except when needed to advance interests not vital to the United States, or to obscure a Democrat president’s sexual misconduct in the Oval Office.

Invading a foreign nation is wrong, except when aliens from Mexico invade America.

Understanding liberal thinking is probably more trouble than it is worth. The more prudent action would be to take all necessary steps to assure that liberals are not elected or reelected to political office.

Nice generalizing. I'm sure articles like that make you conservatives feel better about being closed-minded and racist?

Phil

CNN really is the Clinton News Network. At least the GOP candidates aren't afraid to debate on the network of plants. What does that say about the dimwits that are afraid of Fox News?

Hay FREDK, This should be of interest to YOU!

Fifty-eight percent of Republicans report having excellent mental health, compared to 43% of independents and 38% of Democrats. This relationship between party identification and reports of excellent mental health persists even within categories of income, age, gender, church attendance, and education.

Thanks Finch!

One of the clearest and most descriptive pictures I've seen of a liberal.
Entertaining but so very true!

Finchy,
I see that you dismiss your remarks as satire.
There is one statement with which, (after a minor
change), I agree. And it is not satire:
"The conservative brain does not collect and process information in a logical, reasonable, and objective manner. Rather, conservative thinking is dominated by an obsession with power, and use of that power to preserve elitist advantages."

FK

On the issue of planting people in the crowd, which the conservatives condemn when Hillary does it, I offer this passage from Robert Draper's "Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush" concerning Bush's campaign for the Republican nomination in 1999:

"Later, the Texans gave slightly more ground. The governor would take questions. . . . Except, here are what the questions will be. On orders, the New Hampshire staff began to plant questioners in the audience." (page 14)

So I guess it's ok if your hero, Dubya, does it, right?
