In some regards I agree with you. In the same measure, these people are tired, they are constantly inundated with questions, they depend on other people to give them facts and data, it just isn't logical to expect them to be perfect or infallible.

In all honesty, how many "average" people would know what Elvis' birthday or date of death is? I don't and I don't see knowing or not knowing as a factor that makes her or anyone else less worthy to be POTUS.

As for the carbon dioxide thing, she is pretty much correct. CO2 does occur naturally in nature (it is a product of the metabolism of animals) and in normally occuring levels (.09% of our atmosphere) it is not harmful. And contrary to Olberman's comment, 3% CO2 would not cause us all to have gills or be unconcious. When we exhale we produce a concentration of about 4% CO2 so breathing in someone's face would cause them to pass out if Olberman was correct (garlic breath excluded LOL).

I've been saying this for the past few days. Check the other Presidential threads. Glad I'm not alone :winking0071:


I cannot even think of the slightest reason why anyone would consider her. There was a nice story in The Washington Post two days ago with a big mistake she made: 4 times -in 4 different states- in a single week.

Why use a fact if you don't even know the fact?

If she mixes simple stuff up, who knows what she'd do in office.

I might be wrong but I thought that video was taken at an Elvis celebration. Perhaps that was why she was talking about it.

In all honesty, I don't see any relevance. If you walked up to Obama and asked when Elvis' birthday was he would just look at you with a blank stare, stutter and stammer a bit and then refer you to one of his aides for an answer. Even if the aide had prepper him there is still a logical chance that he would misquote the date.

Busting on Palin for screwing up the Paul Revere thing? Yeah, I get that. Busting on Bachmann because she doesn't know when Elvis was born or died? Just a lame attempt to disparage her over something irrelevant that 99.9% of Americans could care less about anyway.

If it WAS at an Elvis celebration, then that is even worse! You should go into something KNOWING exactly what you are going to say, especially if everyone there knows the fact.

You said this earlier:


In all honesty, how many "average" people would know what Elvis' birthday or date of death is?

If they are at an Elvis celebration, don't you think they would know the simple facts about "The King"? You need to go into places knowing what you are going to say and make sure they are correct.

politicians all have missteps. really anyone that speaks as much as they do and is in the public eye will have their far share of gaffs, but she seems to have more than usual. I guess it could be that she's just become the whipping girl for some outlets and people, but so many of her missteps are during well publicized events. I guess there is a fine line from normal missteps and a pattern of just not having things all the way together. It would seem she may fall into the category of the latter. But then again a lot of these gaffs really are rather trivial. Comic relief, but trivial if you break them down.

Even with not taking into account the gaffs, she doesn't get my vote and I have a hard time seeing the draw for other people as well.

Yes, everyone makes mistakes. But as you said, she seems to be making them more than anyone running.

The thing that scares me about her and others is that if they get this information from their people and its incorrect and they go on supporting it as so then what happens when they start doing actual political research for policies and such and start feeding them misinformation and they start to dictate political whatever from them. Their staff is an extension of themselves and they have to be held accountable for this stuff for these reasons.

Yup, just like all that Democrats care about is having a president that makes sure they can murder babies, have sex with people of the same sex and steal rich people's money so they can keep funding their Socialist programs.

I take what obama says with a grain of salt. Although he has good intentions whenever he does have a good idea his political enemies will squash it. That being said you, i or anyone else would be a fool to believe everything that obama, bush, ron paul, cain, mccain, clinton or any other politician would say. The trick is when voting for a politician is to always choose the lesser of two evils. Although obama is not perfect despite what some of you may believe he was clearly a better alternative than bush or mccain.

duane1969

I don't think that back under $2 is out of the question. All that needs to be addressed is supply and demand. Right now oil prices are up because OPEC keeps playing with daily oil production.

I think there is a simple resolution. Oil producing countries receive goods from the US at a reasonable rate when we receive oil at a reasonable rate. If oil goes up, so does the cost of goods that we sell to them. When oil prices drop, so does the cost of goods that we send to them. As soon as they realize that they are paying $400 for a pound of butter that Americans are buying for $1.50 then they will get the point.

"It's part of Satan, I think, to say that this is 'gay.' It's anything but 'gay.'" She also stated that the gay lifestyle is "bondage" that leads to "personal enslavement of individuals" and is "dangerous." But she also encouraged compassion for those dealing with what she identifies as a "sexual dysfunction."

So the natural disasters are the government's fault...makes as much sense as anything else she's ever said.

Funny though, I thought most of her supporters were those people who actively want the world to end. You'd think they'd be wanting MORE natural disasters to occur, not less. So that means we should fill up Congress with black, pro-choice, Spanish-speaking lesbian welfare moms who drive Priuses. Apocalypse, baby, apocalypse!
