      The sad part there was not a good canidate. But I think Kerry would have been a better President than Bush and that Gore would have been a better choice than Bush. I think when all that has gone on behind the secne Bush will be seen in history as the worst president ever.

      My draft choice a few year back — Mario Coumo

      Cuomo was elected lieutenant governor; in 1982 he was elected governor and held the post for 12 years, becoming the longest-serving Democratic governor in the state’s modern history.

      Twice, he set state records for highest popular vote. During his time in office, Cuomo “balanced 12 consecutive budgets, created more than half a million jobs and led the state through two national recessions.

      If you could draft someone to run for President who would it be?

      Dear Teresa Anne:

      I don’t want to dampen your enthusiasm for American politics, but isn’t Mo Mowlem, errrrr….., how to put this delicately, slightly on the dead side? Now mind you, I am not prejudiced against the metaphysically challenged in general, but don’t you think some life force may be helpful for a politician? Granted, I can see some advantages to having a dead president, mainly in that it simplifies the Secret Service’s job of protecting the president from assassination. And it’s not like we didn’t have a dead president serving before, chiefly Woodrow Wilson’s second term. Furthermore, I can see your point in that a dead president can’t be a whole lot worse than several recent live presidents including the current one, the previous one, Warren G. Harding, or Jimmy Carter.

      Okay, you talked me into it. I have no objections to a dead president. I’m just thinking that if your going to go for the Dead Party Candidate, is Mo Mowlem the best dead person available? How about Calvin Coolidge or Martin Van Buren?

      You know. I think you might be right. It’s a darn shame when the american public is shackled by big time politics because there doesent seem to be a candidate that can win the major political parties nomination because of the way the political game is played. For instance, there are many that like John McCain, but he isnt a real politician and refuses money from interest groups that he feels will compromise his reputation. That includes money from Indian tribes that have casinos. I definitely do not agree with that stance, but I can respect his integrity.

      It looks like the successful presidential candidate will have to raise in excess of 400 million. That pretty much rules out an independant campaign, since the major parties, right or wrong control most of the major contributors.

      Another one in the mix that I am kind of impressed by is Fred Thompson.

      What do y’all think.

      Then there is always Chris Rock. LOL:p

      Yes Fred Thompson, is difficult to read. I conversed with him briefly and Im not sure what to read into his statement. But I admire him for taking the time to write back, He apparently is the number three republican.

      One candidate, Ron Paul, is making me laugh my backside off. He is so out in left field when considering his grasp of reality. I got an email from his campaign that was highly touting a straw poll as an important victory. When you read it, you find out that the straw poll was taken at a picnic where like minded people were invited. They way it was headlined it appeared old ron paul really had accomplishe something. LOL I was left thinking, thats so ridiculous, if he had lost his own picnics straw poll, where he provided the free food, now that would have been note worthy. I left somethign out the first time around. Ron Paul actually did have a chunck of people not vote for him in his picnic straw poll. I think he might have recieved about 66% of the votes. That bite, LOL , you feed people and they still wont vote for you, even when it means nothing. LOL

      LOL Im sad to say, I liked Ross Perot too. But dawg gone it, the skits of him on saturday night live with Ross Jr. just killed it. His lack of committment did him in for good. He might make a hell of a lot of money, but he is no leader for our country or pretty much any democracy, precinct, dog catcher, what have you. LOL

      Although I am a republican, I would surely vote for anyone who could do the job. The thing about Hilary that wories me, is what other countries would think of a woman holding power. In Middle Eastern, Asian, and Indian countries, women are regarded as second class citizens. How much leverage would Hillary hold regarding foreign policy and critical wartime issues. Even if pulling out is the proper thing to do in Iraq, a woman doing it could put us in a vulnerable position regarding our power as a country.

      Another issue that concearns me, is the democrats policy regarding universal insurance. It might not be so easy to get ivig, pp, ncv/emg tests under universal insurance. People in Canada seem to wait a long time for approval of ivig. When my son needed ivig, it was ordered in the er and administered with in three hours of our returned spinal results. I wonder if that would be the case with universal insurance.

      What are the other options, a junior senator already forming relationships with men under investigation by the FBI (Retzko (spelling) ) A man who has no major experience under his belt? Although Obama appears to be an inteligent man, I feel his inexperience might make him a pawn and a puppet to his party.

      Well, then there are the movie stars, what experience do they have? They can put on a good show, but can they deliver reality?

      Because of the current situation of the world, voting will be a very difficult situation for me, while I think Hillary has experience and some new energy and thoughts to bring to the table, I think the fact that she is a woman may hurt the US in the long run. I hope to get some more info on other candidates by voting time.

      At the beginning of her campaign for the presidency, Senator Hillary Clinton, called on George Bush to “extricate our country” from Iraq before he left office in January 2009. Hillary forgets what she said, on 10/10/02: “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members…It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”

      How quickly we forget: The first time terrorists brought the fight to America was 1/93. Two CIA agents are shot and killed as they enter CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The following month, 2/93, a group of terrorists are arrested after a rented van packed with explosives is driven into the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City. 6 people are killed and over 1000 are injured. President Clinton never viewed the bomb site, but promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 5 US military personnel, Clinton promised the same thing. After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 US military personnel, Clinton again promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1998 bombing of US embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured more that 5,000, Clinton again promised the same thing. After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 US sailors, Clinton promised the same thing again.

      If Clinton had just kept his promises, two of New York’s tallest buildings would still be standing and thousands more people would be alive today.

      The Clinton’s did a clean sweep before leaving the White House – absolutely nothing behind but grave sites and a few paper trails; nobody left to report anything! Remember these events? 1. James McDougal, Clinton’s convicted Whitewater partner died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement without his heart medication, but had over 3 times the normal amount of an anti-depressant drug, and that drug was high risk for heart attacks. 2. Mary Mahoney, a former White House intern was murdered 7/97 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown. The murder happened just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment in the White House. 3. Vince Foster, former White House councilor, and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock’s Rose Law firm died of a gunshot wound to the head, ruled a suicide. 4. Ron Brown, Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman, reported to have died by impact in a plane crash. A pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of Brown’s skull resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. The rest of the people on the plane also died. A few days later the air Traffic controller committed suicide. 5. C. Victor Raiser II, a major player in the Clinton fund raising organization died in a private plane crash in 7/92. 6. Paul Tulley, Democratic National Committee Political Director was found dead in a hotel room in Little Rock, 9/92. Described by Clinton as a “Dear friend and trusted advisor”. 7. Ed Willey, a Clinton fund raiser,was found dead 11/93 deep in the woods in VA of a gunshot wound to the head, ruled a suicide. Ed Willey died on the same day his wife Kathleen Willey claimed Bill Clinton groped (touched for sexual pleasure) her in the oval office in the White House. Ed Willey was involved in several Clinton fund raising events. 8. Jerry Parks, head of Clinton’s gubernatorial security team in Little Rock, was gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock. Park’s son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton. He allegedly threatened to reveal this information. After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house. 9. James Bunch, died from a gunshot suicide. It was reported that he had a “Black Book” of people which contained names of influential people who visited prostitutes in Arkansas and Texas. 10. James Wilson was found dead in 5/93 from an apparent hanging suicide. Wilson was reported to have ties to Whitewater. 11. Kathy Ferguson, ex-wife of Arkansas Trooper Danny Ferguson, was found dead in 5/94, in her living room with a gun shot to her head. It was ruled a suicide even though there were several packed suitcases, as if she were going somewhere. Danny Ferguson was a co-defendant along with Bill Clinton in the Paula Jones lawsuit. Kathy Ferguson was a possible corroborating witness for Paula Jones. 12. Bill Shelton, Arkansas State Trooper and fiancée of Kathy Ferguson, critical of the suicide ruling of his fiancee, was found dead in 6/94 of a gunshot wound also ruled a suicide. 13. Gandy Baugh, attorney for Clinton’s friend Dan Lassater, died by jumping out a window of a tall building 1/94. His client was a convicted drug distributor. 14. Florence Martin, accountant and sub-contractor for the CIA, was related to the Barry Seal Mena Airport drug smuggling case. He died of three gunshot wounds. 15. Suzanne Coleman reportedly had an affair with Clinton when he was Arkansas Attorney General. She died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head, ruled a suicide, and was pregnant at the time of her death. 16. Paula Grober, Clinton’s speech interpreter for the deaf from 1978 until her death 12/9/92. She died in a one car accident. 17. Danny Casolaro, an Investigative reporter, slit his wrists. An apparent suicide while investigating Mena Airport and Arkansas Development Finance Authority. An apparent suicide in the middle of his investigation. 18. Paul Wilcher, attorney investigating corruption at Mena Airport with Casolaro, and the 1980 “October Surprise”, was found dead on a toilet 6/22/93 in his Washington DC apartment. He delivered a report to Janet Reno 3 weeks before his death. 19. Jon Parnell Walker, Whitewater investigator for Resolution Trust Corp. Jumped to his death from his Arlington, Virginia apartment balcony 8/15/93. He was investigating the Morgan Guaranty scandal. 20. Barbara Wise, Commerce Department staffer, and worked closely with Ron Brown and John Huang, died 11/29/96. Cause of death unknown. Her bruised, nude body was found locked in her office at the Department of Commerce. 21. Charles Meissner, Assistant Secretary of Commerce who gave John Huang special security clearance, died shortly thereafter in a small plane crash. 22. Dr. Stanley Heard, Chairman of the National Chiropractic Health Care Advisory Committee died with his attorney, Steve Dickson, in a small plane crash. Dr. Heard, in addition to serving on Clinton’s advisory council personally treated Clinton’s mother, stepfather and brother. 23. Barry Seal, was a drug running pilot out of Mena Arkansas. His death was not considered an accident. 24. Johnny Lawhorn Jr., a mechanic, found a check made out to Bill Clinton in the trunk of a car left at his repair shop. He was found dead after his car had hit a utility pole. 25. Stanley Huggins, investigated Madison Guaranty. His death was an implied suicide and the report of his death was never released. 26. Hershell Friday, attorney and Clinton fund raiser died 3/1/94 when his plane exploded. 27. Kevin Ives and Don Henry, known as “The boys on the track” case. Reports say the boys may have stumbled upon the Mena Arkansas airport drug operation. A controversial case, the initial death report said death was due to falling asleep on railroad tracks. Later reports claim the 2 boys had been slain before being placed on the tracks. Many linked their deaths before their testimony could come before a Grand Jury. The following people had information on the Ives/Henry Case: 28. Keith Coney, died when his motorcycle slammed into the back of a truck, 7/88. 29. Keith McMaskle, stabbed 113 times. Died 11/88. 30. Gregory Collins, died from a gunshot wound 1/89. 31. Jeff Rhodes, was shot, mutilated and found burned in a trash dump in 4/89. 33. James Milan, found decapitated. However, the Coroner ruled his death was due to “natural causes”. 34. Jordan Kettleson, was found shot to death in the front seat of his pickup truck in 6/90. 35. Richard Winters. A suspect in the Ives/Henry deaths, was killed in a set-up robbery 7/89. The following Clinton Bodyguards are dead: 36. Major William S. Barkley, Jr. 37. Captain Scott J . Reynolds. 38. Sgt. Brian Hanley. 39. Sgt. Tim Sabel. 40. Major General William Robertson. 41. Col. William Densberger. 42. Col. Robert Kelly. 43. Spec. Gary Rhodes. 44. Steve Willis. 45. Robert Williams 46. Conway LeBleu. 47-Todd McKeehan.

      Hillary signed an $8 million dollar advance for her “tell-all” book, and Bill signs a $10 million advance for his book on his “memoirs.” Strange how they can remember everything for their books, but couldn’t recall much of anything while in court under indictment.

      Here is the New Quick Poll results from CNN on Honesty.
      Which man would you say was more honest as president?
      President Bush 26% 28517 votes
      President Clinton 74% 80361 votes
      Total: 108878 votes
      Poll: Clinton outperformed Bush

      Monday, May 15, 2006; Posted: 10:16 a.m. EDT (14:16 GMT)
      (CNN) — In a poll comparing President Bush’s job performance with that of his predecessor, a strong majority of respondents said President Clinton outperformed Bush on a host of issues.

      The poll of 1,021 adult Americans was conducted May 5-7 by Opinion Research Corp. for CNN. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

      Respondents favored Clinton by greater than 2-to-1 margins when asked who did a better job at handling the economy (63 percent Clinton, 26 percent Bush) and solving the problems of ordinary Americans (62 percent Clinton, 25 percent Bush). (Watch whether Americans are getting nostalgic for the Clinton era — 1:57)

      On foreign affairs, the margin was 56 percent to 32 percent in Clinton’s favor; on taxes, it was 51 percent to 35 percent for Clinton; and on handling natural disasters, it was 51 percent to 30 percent, also favoring Clinton.

      Moreover, 59 percent said Bush has done more to divide the country, while only 27 percent said Clinton had.

      When asked which man was more honest as president, poll respondents were more evenly divided, with the numbers — 46 percent Clinton to 41 percent Bush — falling within the poll’s margin of error. The same was true for a question on handling national security: 46 percent said Clinton performed better; 42 percent picked Bush.

      Clinton was impeached in 1998 over testimony he gave in a deposition about an extramarital sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinksy. He was later acquitted by the Senate.

      Jfitzen,

      I did not say how great Bush was, or how well he was doing in the polls. George W. has us in one hell of a mess in Iraq, but at least the fight is there and not here.

      Look at the polls all you want, but we can’t forget Bill Clinton’s affairs with Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinski, Kathleen Wiley and others. The campaign contributions for pardons, national security secrets, sleepovers in the Lincoln Bedroom, and even waivers for burials in National Cemeteries including Arlington for campaign cash. Bill Clinton committed perjury in a lawsuit charging him with sexual harassment and lied to a grand jury. Then was charged by other women with harassment and even rape. While fighting to survive politically, the president trashed the rule of law and villified his opponents. He appeared to time military strikes against Afghanistan, Iraq and Sudan for political purposes. He spent his last full day in office agreeing to accept a five-year suspension of his law license in Arkansas. And, dickering with Special Prosecutor Robert Ray to avoid indictment.

      Just look at the Clinton’s trail of deaths, murders, and suicides that follow them. It’s amazing!

      Perry,

      I’ve not been as active on the Forum’s as I use to be. I’ve had a lot of back problems and trying to keep myself going. All things considering, I’m doing as well as can be expected.

      You guys take care.

      Who is Barack Obama?

      Probable U.S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black Muslim from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white atheist from Wichita, Kansas.

      Obama’s parents met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a radical Muslim from Indonesia. When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia.

      Obama attended a Muslim school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a Catholic school. Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He Is quick to point out that, “He was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school.”

      Obama’s political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama’s introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya Soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over his son’s education.

      Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the radical teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world.

      Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when seeking Major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background.

      Let us all remain alert concerning Obama’s expected presidential candidacy.

      The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the U.S. from the inside out. What better way to start than at the highest level?

      I don’t understand why this is not made more public by the republicans? They have only touched on it! Furthermore, Obamas campaign fund is the biggest on record, typically, the candidate with the biggest budget goes on to win the presidency. It would be interestiong to see who the contributors are and if they have any connection to the radical teachings of Islam.

      Are people being naive to think that they can look the other way regarding Obamas background? Regardless of his current beliefs or what he wants us to believe they are, I think we should take note of the red flags!

      I am very frightful of what the future of the USA and the world in general is. What is it going to take, what are we to do?

      Your right Jethro we should know the facts about each person before we vote for them. Just because those around us have attitudes and values does not mean that we will have those same attitudes and values. One might say where there is smoke there has to be a fire. Yet, in this case the fire orgin is not Obama. Much of the information you brought up and more had been presented on Fox News. Others have shown that it was not factual. We are entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts. I am an independent and find both the D’s and the R’s use things out of contect and draw conclusions that facts do not support.

      Jef,

      I am not telling anyone how to vote. I think there are things about the candidates that should be made public. If you want to vote for Barack Hussein Obama, fine with me. But in my opinion, he is a danger to the United States and the freedom of our people, and attempts to downplay his Muslim background.

      And if you want to vote for Hillary Clinton, fine with me. You just need to remember what suicides, deaths, and murders followed them; Whitewater, The Rose Law Firm, and everything they were connected with. These deaths were not a coincidence…there conldn’t have been so many coincidences. Do you really think Bill Clinton or Hillary have any moral values? Family values? In fact, they have no values, my opinion.

      My problem – I haven’t seen anyone I want to vote for. Nothing but a bunch of political leaches that want to sell out Americans for illegal immigrants.

      OK,………whoa!!!!! Jethro!!……..I am on your side, and I know you are passionate about this, but,……………..please don’t associate my name with the political vagrants. Ok, explanation….you referred to them as “leaches”… (which is my family’s name), …………I think you meant “leeches”, which is the blood sucking parasite/worm that does do what you meant to describe.

      Just “joshing”………..I really did not take offense……..Just wanted to respond.:) 🙂 And to make the correction…………..you know how I am…..I always detect things like that 😉

      Yes, its outstanding Jethro. I pretty much agree. I really wish we had someone I felt like voting for. The Clintons present themselves as caring about the people, but my perception of reality with regard to them is that they were and are skillful politicians. In our own arena out here Hillary is turning her back on Indian Country.

      And Barack? LOL Im a Desert Storm Veteran, that ought to be enough.

      I have considered McCain or Romney, but today Romney is out of the picture too! On the news, Obama was talking about sex education and said it is never too early to start. He proposed Kindergarten or preschool. That is ludicrous! How bad do we really want to mess up our future? Why not stick to basics, reading, math, etc? Anyway, Romney joined the bandwagon and said sex education in Kindergarten is out of the question. He negated to include that in his most liberal state that he governs, they DO already teach sex education as early as preschool. A liar and an idiot! Now that he is running for president, he has to appeal to the conservatives and the liberals. So I guess why not be a hypocrite and lie.

      Who is there? We will vote because it is our duty and our right, but it is beginning to seem that voting is becomming a big joke, a side show picking the best of the worst act!

      Love him or loathe him, he nailed this one right on the head…

      By Rush Limbaugh:

      “I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don’t criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can’t let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. [B]If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you’re going to get an average of $1,185,000.[/B] The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.

      [U]If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.[/U]

      [U]Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there’s a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.[/U]

      [B]Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it’s not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.[/B] [U]Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers.[/U]

      We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.

      [B]You see where this is going, don’t you?[/B] Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It’s just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. [U]Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing. Make sense?[/U]

      [U]However, our own U.S. Congress voted themselves a raise.[/U] [U]Many of you don’t know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month.[/U] [B]And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.[/B] They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn’t have to pay into the system.

      [U]If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month,[/U][B]and the very people who placed them in harm’s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.[/B]

      [U]I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks[/U] [B]before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.”[/B]

      [QUOTE=Mauricette]Many possible choices. Does it seem to that no matter who gets elected the middle class and poor will still suffer. That is the way I feel.[/QUOTE]

      Interesting, the above statement maybe why so many of us are undecided.

      Are there other reasons that there is such a lack of decision and why so many now see themselves as independants?

      To me it’s all about experience. Sarah Palin shot, killed, and field dressed a moose. Barak Obama read about a moose in a Doctor Suess book. In the all-important moose issue, the Democrats just can’t compete.
