“How about the part the voters played in going along with the "lesser of two evils" game?”

“The Supreme Court gave the election to Bush, not Nader.
Perpetuating this myth that Nader was the cause of Gore's defeat is only the usual tired argument against third parties, instead of what actually happened, which was that the Supreme Court brazenly threw a presidential election.
To continue to blame Nader is to remain in denial about the criminality of America's highest court and avoids what that should tell us all about the entire rigged system.”

“I hate to disagree, but Gore was an awful candidate, and it never should have been so close that Nader was the spoiler. If you recall. Gore dissed Clinton AND had lineman for his running mate. That said, the drone strikes are evil.”
“A stanch liberal, I have often learned from Will, respected his honesty, and enjoyed his writing. He has been very good on baseball. And I'll always thank him for a quote from Darwin in a column of his, in the 80's, which inspired me to open and actually read "Origin of Species." You see, conservatives and liberals can co-exist. And he is correct in this instance. I submit the unrest would have been worse under Romney. American Islamophobes, likes those Romney has consorted with and pandered to, are responsible for the unfortunate situation in the Mideast. Wingnuts, Romney's people, claim in willful ignorance that Obama is Muslim, by which they vent both their racism and hatred of Islam. These are Romney's partisans. His soft rejection of the film is not enough. Romeny must denounce the Islamophobes, which, however, would not advance his ambition and is therefore beyond him.”
“Excuse me. The real news is the friend this country has in Libya and its people, thanks to the freedom they have with the help of France, Britain, and the president of the United States.”

“Yes, we have finally gotten back to that point of regaining our former friends in Libya, and I hope so much that it will stay that way.
This is a sad occasion, to be sure, but I think we can all get past it if everyone will just calm down and ignore the inflammatory rhetoric, much of which is coming from uninformed sources and/or sources with another agenda.”
“Granted Romney doesn't know much about helping people, but even he should grasp that slowing the rise of the oceans and healing planet earth, where people tend to live, might be helpful to. . .need I say more?”

“He has to keep his message simple for the simple who faithfully devote their lives to adoring him.”
“Republicans nominated a candidate they didn't want, don't like, don't trust, and don't expect to win. That's as positive as it gets for Romney, he's only in worse shape with Democrats, libertarians, independents.”
“As I recall there were crowds of white kids like me in the 1960's who were part of the sexual revolution, who opposed the war in Vietnam, who marched with Martin Luther King, who teared up when LBJ, urging congress to approve the Voting Rights Act, quoted our song, "We Shall Overcome," who hoped to God we would never live through another year like 1968, who celebrated the first Earth Day, who welcomed gay liberation, etc. etc. So careful, Paul. When you talk elderly white people you are talking about people like me and Bill Cliinton. Clint is elderly enough to be our father. Remember the Generation Gap and us elderly who gave rise to the term.”

“Most who thought like this forgot most of the caring part when they started making money and then relized they were just as greedy as the ones they were protesting against. The old white men of the repub party care only about themselfs and money. The old white men that now run the corpations care only about profit and country and its people mean nothing. Same people different thinking now.”

“Of course there were those who didn't do the things you refer to. Those who opposed the things you listed.
Mitt Romney was one of those. He dodged the draft with help from his church, but protested against the people you refer to. Google it if you aren't aware.
The sexual revolution, the Voting Rights Act, gay liberation, these things and more are still being debated, not settled as you suggest.”

“There is a distinction. He isn't saying all elderly white people are in the republican base. He is saying that the republican base is made up of elderly white people. There is a difference. And yes, I participated in those events of the 60's too.”

“Mmmmhmm... you were the hippies, became the 'me' generation, became yuppies, did too much coke, spent all your money on boats and second houses that you had to sell to settle the divorce, saved nothing, and now a lot of you are demanding that we dismantle Social Security and Medicare for future generations, all the while screaming that you need yours...”
“Not all Mormons are shallow-brained hypocrites, duplicitous two-faced liars. I suspect many good, believing, devout Mormons feel completely sickened by the utter cynicism of Romney's campaign. As sickened as I am. It was instructive to learn from the DNC that there are Mormons against Romney.”

“Hope the Utah women can come to their sense's but I am afraid the LDS Church knows exactly how they vote .
They keep a laser watch on activities.., just as they have since the Avenging Angels, who slit throats for the cause.! And friends that is a fact of History.”
