    You might try not rooting for Obama to fail. It's your country too you know...

    Get moving on 2010. Take back a few seats in congress. Mitigate Obama's effect. Then maybe the bleating and warbling won't be so shrill.

    "The $150,000 wardrobe was just inexcusable, and I think did more to unravel the Mc/P ticket than most republicans were willing to admit. I don't care who payed for what, or which Salvation Army it gets donated to.....the average American man or woman who has to earn a living, and buy nice attire, could not swallow that. At some point, any politician who is running in arguably the worst econimic slump since the GD, and proclaiming to be a typical soccer mom, a little voice should tell them not to spend three times the median household income on clothes."

    Public perception is what is it. That's why there's PR firms that gross in the 7 and 8 figures. Not because everyone is "dumb", but because they don't want to look "dumb".

    I hope my quote above is not what you refer to as denigrating. I thought it was a civil evaluation of a campaign gaff, that is shared with many in her party. If you disagree, feel free to send the RNC contributions and maybe she will do that again in 2012. She wasn't my horse in the race, but if she was, man would I be p!$$ed!

    Oh I can just imagine... You went on for days about Michelle Obama wearing $600 sneakers to serve the homeless for a 5 minute photo op. I thought you'd never let that red herring issue drop. On and on you went...oy vey.

    But Michelle earned the money for those sneakers in a $317K part time job created especially for her by an earmark from her hubby. Apparently you have no problem with ethical lapses when your side does it. Though I don't consider what SP did an ethical lapse, more like a handler's error.

    That's a whole 'nother thread! I will say that if ANY party conducts themselves dishonestly, I will hold them accountable in the only way I can...in November. We could spend days hashing through links of how appropriate or not her position was. I can tell you what she did is not only common in that level of gov't, it's almost expected. Gov't and corporate circles are full of examples of nominal partners, figureheads..all positions that may or may not cover their salaries.

    If her job was passed through the legislative process, approved by the corporate board, and all income reported, then like it or not, its legit. As far as we know, it did not go to hush up affairs with spouses, like other elected officials who are clinging to their jobs have been suggested.

    Really, I don't want to get into a tit for tat of "your guy did this" and "my guy did that". We would waste too many bytes, as both parties have their share of scoundrels.

    The RNC has my number on speed dial, and trust me if Obamas policy's fail I'm the last guy that's going to get hurt.

    If that's now your official policy your daily post count is going to be reduced by about 80%.
