There aren't any candidates I like. I hate them all. I don't even particularly like Obama anymore.

I might have to opt out of voting this time around.

I have to say I am rather baffled by insanity of how politicians are behaving,especially republican politicians since the Bush years. It seems like they are all pandering to the idiots. I mean seriously it's like they are turning politics into a reality

At least democrats are steadily incompetent and impotent. But what happened to republicans is beyond me. I mean surely it wasn't that bad before Bush JR? Right?

I don't know whats is wrong with them. They just want war, death, and blood. All of them are now saying lets attack Iran to stop them from building a nuclear bomb, but I bet non of them is willing to send themselves or their children.

Well no not so much this. This is something that has always been like this. The military industry is one of the most profitable ones with the most powerful lobby and the military has one of the biggest budgets so it's normal that USA will seek conflict. This has always been like this.

And to be fair I think they want simple airstrikes(and possibly sea battles) against Iran. USA is literally not capable of invading Iran. Iran has four times the territory of Iraq and two and a half times the population. And while a lot of them are not happy with their current regime they will never support an USA invasion. Too much bad blood. So any attempt would break the USA. So there won't really be a need to send many children and losses of life probably won't be too much on the western side

What astounds me is that politicians seem to be proud to act dumb, racist,homophobic and xenophobic. This just blows my mind just like the clip you posted did

Ok I just heard about this Newt guys. And are you serious? He ditched his first wife while she was dealing with cancer. And then wanted to get his second wife who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis to do an open marriage?

You know what I am usually not much into the personal life of candidates. Especially when it comes to sex. That's personal stuff and usually should have no relevance however this is a bit over the line. I mean come on this is douchbagerry at a maximum level

Hmm...

Why is he being so open about it? I mean I am sure this idea has come across just about every politicians mind at one point or another. Probably been suggested too. Hell I wouldn't be shocked if its already happened atleast once.

But you don't see other politicians talking about it(at least none that I am aware of) because this sort of business is best left behind closed doors.

Also where the hell did the Killing Americans Good come from? I actually don't remember him implying that at all in the video. He did say it has happened to American citizens and that doesn't surprise me in the least. But then what Government hasn't had one of its citizens killed at some point?

I think that is what scares people the most. If is he open about this, then what does he want to do behind closed doors.


I think what they mean is the government killing Americans without a trail or something. I remember I saw something like this on MSNBC a while ago, and they were talking about how unconstitutional it was. Or then again I might be connecting two dots that have nothing to do with each other.

Well I guess there is a reason why we rank low on education amongst developed nations. ):

Actually he never said that. His wording was poor and he also agrees with it. But he never actually said that spanish was the language of the ghetto.

What he actually said was this

"We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and so they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto."


Again not exactly the best wording. It was Romney who started this. Romney has, or had, a ad running in Florida about this statement and making it say that Gringrich actually said that. Well Romney denied knowing of this ad, but at the end of the ad it said "Paid for by Romney for President, Incorporated" and there was also a press release before the airing of the ad linking to it.

While not the best wording and one could see where the idea came from. But the truth is, as far as I can tell, is that Gringrich never used the word spanish.

Romney basically went to a state that has a large hispanic population. It was a very dirty tactic on Romney's part.

Whats great about this? Is that it's not going to only sway hispanics away from Gringrich, but people in general. I mean who would want someone who seems slightly bigoted to run for office?...

Oh Shit! This is America...

Moving on.

Of course I got most of this from an article from CNN. Soo.

Now about the actual statement. Again, he never said spanish. But the whole Language of Prosperity vs Language of the Ghetto.

Now lets be honest. In America, English is the Language of Prosperity. Just as Japanese would be in Japan and Russian for Russia. Because chances are if you become a Doctor or a Lawyer or just a successful businessman you'd need to know the language. Alot of jobs are going to require you to know how to read and write the language. Trying to read something in a language you are unfamiliar with is going to be a pain. The better you understand the language, the more opprotunities are available. It will also help financially because translators can be expensive. Razz

The wording is bad and easily taken out of context or twisted in a way that Gringrich probably never meant. The fact that Hispanic Ghettos are not the only type within America also points to the idea that Romney was twisting this to get a rise out of the hispanics in Florida.

So. Yeah.

But then again who knows what he meant and if he is just trying to hope his wording was vague enough to keep him out of any more trouble.

Well this is better but still sounds terrible. I mean seriously it's one thing for a politician to be xenophobic or even pretend to be one to one to gain redneck votes but when he does it with suck a lack of grace and with barely subtle at all it's just pathetic


Seriously I don't mind my politicians being scumbags but what I do hate is politicians who are scumbags but are too dumb an inarticulate to hide it.

Honestly I am not sure what's worse. Newtman being so bad at hiding his douchebagery or Romney's near robotical presence. And don't get me started on the ass guy

The only one who seems sympathetic to me is Ron Paul but the man is far too out there to be chosen , especially in the current political climate

I mean for god's sake I was hoping that with Obama kicking their ass in the previous election the Republicans would finally ditch the whole Bush/Palin idiot type of candidates and go back to intelligent,charming and more moderate candidates and instead we get these guys and the clowns who fell off
