“I think the Clintons are looking BEYOND 2008. They realize that Obama has beaten them this year. If they can ensure they sour Obama's candidacy, McCain will win, only last 4 years, and give Hillary another chance at a run after 4 years.
If Obama wins, on the other hand, he will probably be re-elected after 4 years, and Hillary stands no chance of ever running for president again.”

“Who deregulated the banks?
"Summers hailed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999, which lifted more than six decades of restrictions against banks offering commercial banking, insurance, and investment services (by repealing key provisions in the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act): "

“Typical of rethug "logic'. Everything ELSE (on the left) has to be paid for before legislation is enacted. When they are in power, they can revert to their free spending (note Bushes and the stupid cowboy in the 80s)...after all...the people who follow them aren't the brightest”
“Finally...the truth is out for all to see. Actions like this by the right exposes the insidious side of America that is, and has been, hidden behind the veil of civility.
Welcome to the REAL America.”
“The base may have gone mad...by design of their leaders. The leaders, however, are calculating and far more insiduous. Basically, they know how to drive their ignorant followers to distraction...while they laugh all the way to the bank!”
“What a large bunch of more-ons inhabit this beautiful country. We should send all these bigots back to their countries of origin...
