I once respected him, but now no longer like his views. I find them disingenuous and intellectually dishonest, because they're presented within a conservative framework.
Guess they need the "big tent" concept, Macfury.

Strange, but I initially did not like DF's views, but now have come to respect him more due to his intelligent manner of expressing his views. Guess, once again, we shall agree to disagree ................. but in a civilized manner. Interesting how this thread has not had the sort of jabs commonly found in the Canadian politics thread.

Paix, mon ami.

Dr. G: I think we all tend to like the guy from across the aisle from our beliefs who surprisingly makes statements we agree with. It's like the occasional time James Carville says something I can support. As humans, we like to find agreement and like-mindedness among our fellow travelers. Even bryanc and I can agree on the value of watching the Three Stooges from time to time.

All valid points, Macfury. As I said, we are far more civil in this thread. Invite me the next time you and bryanc watch The Three Stooges .......... I am a fan since I was a little boy. Paix, mon ami.

Read this in the NY Times:

"$800 Million Target for Romney Campaign and Republican Committee

By NICHOLAS CONFESSORE


9:28 p.m. | Updated A new joint fund-raising initiative between Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee will aim to raise $800 million by November, part of what Mr. Romney’s campaign estimates will be a total of $1 billion spent to defeat President Obama and elect Mr. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor."

$800 Million Target for Romney Campaign and Republican Committee - NYTimes.com

The median income in the United States is about $50,000, so I doubt very many 99 percenters are able to meet the $75,000 minimum that was expected at a recent Romney fundraiser. Did you know the goal of the RNC is to raise $800 million by November? Imagine how many families could be helped if just half of that was used to train people for the new job market, as opposed to being spent to help one guy get hired?

Sadly, Pres. Obama is not immune from this push for funds. Just last week, Obama -- with George Clooney -- raised $15 million in one night. This makes me wonder how in the hell our political process became so distorted that Obama needs this much money to run for re-election.

Campaign finance reform, one of Ron Paul's points, is one specific reason, other than that he is at least honest with his views, why I like him as a politician.

I am still going to vote for Pres. Obama, but this time around, I am not going to send him any money.

You hear the latest? Obama is gay. Must be true, heard it on the radio.

Okay, so let's see now, Obama is a socialist, muslim, homosexual Kenyan.

How did Donald Trump miss that?

Anyway, have a listen to what this guy has to say, it's absolutely hilarious...hmmm, kind'a looks ghay himself don't he?

I believe so. I wish Obama had been a gay fiscal conservative.

Just read this on CNN.com --

"Powell favors same-sex marriage

CNN's Gregory Wallace

(CNN) - Gen. Colin Powell said Wednesday on CNN's "The Situation Room" that he supports legal same-sex marriage, either at the state or federal level.

"I have no problem with it," he said in the interview, which will air at 5 p.m. ET. "In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that's called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president's decision." "

Did not expect this support from him ................ what next, him supporting the reelection of Pres. Obama????
