    Did you plug the financial hole yet, Daddy? Notice that when ever Barry starts to fail he hauls his kids out, quoting their wisdom? Must be the reason the Oval Office meetings are Closed Press. Don't want any pictures of little Sasha pointing to graphs and charts. Or was it Malia that's the economic whiz? Any how, the girls have a lot to live up to. I mean think of it, Amy Carter was a nuclear arms expert by the time she was 12. Well at least Jimmy knew his daughters age.

      Do you think the reason GW didn't haul his girls out was due to the twins heavy partying?

        Could be the reason, an alcoholic is a sad place. It does run in families and President Bush has talked and wrote about his struggle to overcome his addiction. An honest open discussion is the best place to start. The family had done just that. I think most Americans wish the twins well and hope, like their father, they can overcome their problems.

        Barry and President Bush have a lot in common. They both gave up their addictions and plotted a path to success. Barry relied on cigarettes, cocaine, and marijuana, President Bush alcohol.

      Hey Jay...can you explain to me, why the only women candidates the Tea Party supports are live model versions of female fertility fetishes?

        Why are Liberals the least tolerant? They are all for equal rights as long as you dress, act and say the things they want you to say. And the vicious attacks on women? I guess their new motto is "When you have lost everything start attacking the way they dress."

        In a refreshing twist to all this name calling, Lisa Bennett, National Organization for Women (NOW) Communications Director, said “Listen, supposedly progressive men (ok, and women, too): Cut the crap! Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don’t like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs."

        Maybe there is hope and can be change in the Liberal mob.

        Really Jay! And you say that with a straight face? You keep discussing Bachmann's children and her 23 foster children which according the CBS News Political Hot-Sheet might be an overstatement.

        These two women are only for equal rights in so far as they have the right to push what they believe down the throats of anyone who thinks differently, they are against the rights for women to make their own choice, and against the rights of those who do not do what they preach. and In so doing they do all women an injustice.

        Each of us have a right to speak out when we see that portrayed in any candidate.

        They are against the very rights, for which every women who has demanded equal rights stands, and their policies (should they be allowed to pursue them) would be directed against women with the aid of like-minded men... such as yourself.

        Do you realize Sarah Palin as mayor of Wasilla required women to pay for their own rape kits?
        Michelle Bachmann voted against a bill that would protect women from unfair pay practices.
        Michelle Bachmann voted against the Children's Health Care Act...so much for her being a Mom based person... other than for the children under her own roof she isn't for helping.

        It has nothing to do precisely with these candidates being women...since a great many men stand for the same thing. Do you realize that a great number of people against Victoria Woodhull in1872 were also women. A great many people against Women's rights are women.

        In these two women I see a great deal that would suggest they are against really giving women any rights, and actually setting back the rights that women currently have.

        Therefore I feel accurate in my description...of seeing them portrayed by conservatives, as over-the-top achieving mother figures with nothing more substantial than that going for them.

        Oh.... Jay if you will really look up what fertility fetishes are they were basically baby dolls given to girls or women to train them to be mothers.

        This is another of those ...what are those concrete lawn geese going to be perceived as in a 1000 years.

        You say that I keep talking about Bachmann's children, I have never said anything about her children.

        You say "It has nothing to do precisely with these candidates being women" I do not konw many men that you would call "live model versions of female fertility fetishes."

        You say Palin required rape victims to pay for kit. I suggest that you read this factcheck story.

        You say that because Michelle Bachmann voted against the Children's Health Care Act. she is not a mom based person. Why do Liberals only see the world their way or no way. You have not stopped to think, are there any other reasons someone would not vote for this bill? That most Republicans see it as a States issue. That the Federal government should not pay for everything. That is not to say that the fed could not require the states to cover children but just that the fed would not pay directly for it. You really need to expand your way of thinking, just because Republicans are not for fancy sounding bills does not mean that they do not care for children.

        Jay quoted directly from the Fact Check site:

        "We've seen countless Internet and e-mail claims that Sarah Palin forced women to pay for their own forensic testing when reporting a rape. Unlike some claims about Palin, this one has some merit, though Palin's precise role is unclear.


        "Eric Croft, a former Alaska state representative who sponsored the 2000 legislation, told CNN that "I find it hard to believe that for six months a small town, a police chief, would lead the fight against a statewide piece of legislation receiving unanimous support and the mayor not know about it." But Croft, a Democrat, says he does not recall discussing the issue with Palin at the time."

        The police chief of Wasilla was the person who lead the fight against implementing the legislation passed by the state legislature without the approval or knowledge of Mayor Palin...

        Come on Jay get real....if you believe that I have a bridge I'll sell you.

        I believe the 14th Amendment gives the Federal Government the right to set certain legislation in place, and the states must comply with mandates. Federal laws supersede state laws, and we have too many states that do not provide adequate health or education which deprives children. There should not be an unequal balance across this nation we are a far too mobile a society. Voting against the Children's Health Care Act to me shows her national level disregard for all children...not just those in her state. To me saying "state's issues" doesn't cut it anymore. too many states are not doing their job...which makes for far too much disparity.
