Cheryl, please....Easy on the poor woman. It is a free Country, and everyone has a right to her personal point of view. We need to be able to disagree and let others have their say.

I personally feel a great deal of sympathy for the idealistic young, as I was once one myself, in my own rather conservative, way. For example, I was against the Vietnam War but joined the Navy to be a doctor and help the guys who were defending our Country. If you can't figure that paradox out, OK, some of my treachers couldn't either.

Anyway, I think it was Winston Churchill who said,

"A conservative at 20 has no heart,
But a liberal at 40 has no brain."

I think that's about right, and I have great compassion for my young colleagues with plenty of heart. Many of them will be compassionate conservatives when they have their own children. I'm less sanguine with people my own age who haven't figured it out yet. :-)

Perhaps Obama could get a few tips from Hugo Chaves.This great socialist and Catholic having been re-elected for a third term as Venezuelan president.

Getting Obama & Biden re-elected would be a travesty. It would assure the same abuse of religious rights that have been put into law, and it would continue the unopposed slaughter of innocent children through legal abortions. As a Catholic, I cannot and will not vote for that degree of evil.


I support Romney and Ryan because I know, with them, there is more respect for life, a greater chance to oppose abortion, and a better chance to improve our economy.


The right to life is non-negotiable. Voting for a candidate whose party's platform defends abortion violates church teaching.


Wow. I find it unbelievable to open CM and read this stuff from this kind of mindset anymore.

And if you think the first term was bad, imagine what he will be like when he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected...

I shared the same thoughts. shhh wink

And it's not that a thread was started on how to get him re-elected. Certainly within anyone's right to do so. It was because it mocked Patricia's thread.

One hears much about BOs attempts to take us down the destructive road of Progressivism. But one does not hear enough about BOs complete lack of accomplishment, nor the fact that he has been handed nearly everything in life without having to work for it or deal with grades, competition, etc. This may account in part for his peevishness at actually having to face an intelligent and accomplished debate opponent the other night. Here is a nice post on the topic. Let's brainstorm ways to get this message out there:

An editorial cartoonist named Glenn McCoy nails it with things that don't make sense.


Smokey Bear holding a sign that reads, "Bears for forest fires."

A chicken holding a sign that reads, "Chickens for Colonel Sanders."

And a woman holding a sign that reads, "Catholics for Obama."



Things don't make sense.
