“Believe it or not, many of us have been paying attention to what the candidates have said for the past 2 years, not just the past few weeks. We've had ample time to make up our minds. Debates are useful if you just started following the campaign and you need to see where the two candidates differ. But if you've been following the issues all along, nothing said in these debates is going to sway you.
I wish we had early voting in my state. I would've already cast my ballot by now and been done with it.”
“1. It has to do with my original post (a response to comments saying they could "guess the race" of the suspect)
2. The sucker punch was both sick and disturbed, but the attacker's race isn't the reason it's sick and disturbed.
3. I have no idea what they're motivation was. They were wrong and should be punished. On that I think we can agree...right?”
“I didn't have to search to find that article. It was two page clicks after this article. On any given day, HuffPo/AOL will have at least five new articles about crime or stupidity, and the suspects can be black or white - doesn't matter. But here's the difference...
When you read the comments about a white criminal on HuffPo, no one says they represent all white people. But when it's a black criminal? Somehow they represent all black people. When it's a white criminal, they are described as "sick" or "disturbed" and people say "they need to get help." When it's a black criminal, they are described as "typical", "savages", "animals who need to be locked in cages."
Are you really going to sit here and tell me you don't notice this?”

“1. What does that have to do with my observation.?
2. Does the sucker punch meet the standard for "sick or disturbed" ?
3. Or does the lad(s) involved think it was just a scream to go "polar bear hunting"?”
“If he had done this in the primary, the right would've hammered him over it. But I guarantee you none of them will say a word condemning him for it now.
The only thing they care about is beating Obama. Mitt can literally say anything. He could come out tomorrow and say he's pro-abortion, pro gay marriage, that he hates the troops, that he'll raise your taxes, and personally come to your house and take your guns away. Wouldn't matter.
This election has nothing to do with Mitt Romney, and everything to do with Barack Obama. You're either voting pro-Obama or anti-Obama. Mitt's flip flops on policy and core beliefs are totally irrelevant.”
