I know Illinois seems to be a donkey state but suburban Chicago and downstate is overwhelmingly of the elephant ilk.
Agreed. But moderates in Illinois, Florida, Ohio Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania could make the difference. Had Palin not been on the ticket, McCain could have got that swing vote. If Romney didn't have the charisma of the one percent, he might have won.
Ok. whose vote is going to swing the 2016 presidential election? Are you saying that middle of the road voters make no difference or that there are so few it doesn't make a difference?
Actually you represent the relatively small percent of voters that will determine who becomes the next president. Just curious, excluding Clinton, Rubio and Bush, who do you think has a legitimate chance of getting your vote.
I doubt his job was to make sure the person arrested was buckled up. I suspect that those trained to arrest suspects were taught to buckle up those arrested regardless of any physical threat they may impose. Case closed.
Face it. the police officers charged will get enough monetary support to pay for the best attorneys in the country. those attorneys will poke so many holes in the prosecution's case, I doubt any one of them will be convicted. There is no question that police, in general, are overly aggressive. Often that means that minorities are targets of questionable stops. However, for some reason, those questionable stops often seem to escalate into confrontations that could have easily been avoided. When anger overwhelms reason the angry person never wins.
I think the bathroom mold is winning. Start with something easier to conquer like a mouse trap in your kitchen.
idiot! Hard to export when the strength of the dollar makes everything more expensive to foreign buyers. Of course the strength of the dollar is directly attributed to the fact that the US economy is stronger than all of Europe, and the BRIC countries. I guess we can thank the do-nothing Republican congress for that.
Hard to keep those straight. How about real names like Bozo, Clarabell, Kukla, Fran and Ollie, Howdy doody, Mr. bluster, Kimo Sabe, Funicello, Elvis, Father Guido Sarducci,, two wild and crazy guys Jeb and Marco
I think Jeb has already made it clear that to win a national election you can't fall into the trap of trying to do well in Iowa by paying lip service to a bunch of evangelical nut jobs.
I think most potential voters will think the debates were staged by a subsidiary of World Wide Wrestling.
It's a shame. One would think that with that kind of money thrown at teachers, police and firemen, Chicago would not only have a low crime rate but one of the best public school systems in the country. Both have a long way to go just to be average. I would say one thing for Rahm. The teacher's union despises him because he has advanced programs like charter schools that have proven to deliver superior results when compared to the public school system. And in fact, teachers at charter schools do not belong to the Chicago teachers union.
Best Texas country/western song ever- "I wouldn't take my wife to a dog fight, even if I thought she could win."
Her purchase of Comapq as CEO of HP almost ruined the company. fortunately for HP shareholders she was fired before she could finish the job.
