    Clinton, McCain emerge as comeback winners in New Hampshire primary



    WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled off an unexpected narrow victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday, dramatically rescuing her bid for the White House in a tense battle with Barack Obama.
    Clinton, who's fighting to become the first woman in the Oval Office, mounted a surprisingly strong showing after bracing for a second defeat following her devastating third-place showing in Iowa.

    Republican John McCain also nabbed a major comeback victory, putting him solidly back in his party's nomination race.
    While Obama, vying to make history as the first black U.S. president, scored big among independents and voters between 18 and 24, Clinton attracted lower-income voters and seniors and did best among voters citing the economy as their top concern.
    But a big factor for Clinton was women voters, who had gone over to Obama in large numbers in Iowa. Nearly half in New Hampshire were once again supporting her, while Obama got only a third.

    Wonder if those pregnant chads ever gave birth?

    Seriously though, as I understand it, the news media counted the votes using the standards that both Bush and Gore wanted. When counting the votes using the "Gore" standard Bush won; when counting the votes using the "Bush" standard Gore won. But, I think it's clear that who lost was John and Jane Q. Public.

    I dunno.. I was only in 4th grade when that election went down so I can't say what really happened, I just learn from reading books about it. After reading several I have come to a conclusion.. The electoral college is a bad idea and Al Gore is the only man who the PEOPLE voted for that never served as president... interesting.

    In this regard the text books are correct.

    I just want an America where..

    • I don’t have to shop at small local neighborhood stores. I don’t want the problem of choosing where to shop.
    • I can buy cheap plastic crap from China.
    • Where new drugs are available immediately to the public whether they have been tested properly or not. If the major pharmaceutical companies bottom lines are healthy, then I feel healthy too
    • I want kids to have sit in a classroom with at least 30 other children. They need to fight for the attention they need.
    • Where we continue our use of fossil fuels. Oil is much more important than preserving our natural woodlands.
    • Because corporations should not have to pay for environmental damage. The EPA is an outmoded idea. If we the people want clean water… buy it in a bottle.
    • I don’t know if the food I eat has been genetically modified. I don’t want to have to live with that fear… ya know?
    • I can be screwed by utility companies.
    • Hybrid cars aren’t out there… they really aren’t useful.
    • I just don’t feel I deserve health insurance.
    • My state (Texas) has MORE billionaires.
    • Where we don’t have to worry about the constitution… sometimes it’s just one big inconvenient headache.

    Now if only the politicians would listen to me!!

    No, this is a joke:

    ya know what you call a bus load of politicians who go flying off a cliff into a very deep ravine?

    ...A good start.


    or, the word politician defined is as follows:

    1. A person who practices politics. "Politics" is derived from the words "poly" meaning "many", and "tics" meaning "blood-sucking parasites."
    2. One who was perfected the art of lying.
    3. A highly paid yes-man.

    How long did it take to get through the last economic catastrophe, which happened to also follow the next most recent ten year stretch of Republican control over Washington?

    Nah. Herm had all of his disasters paid for.

    As terrible as the Herm era was, it pales in comparison to the guy who launched two wars, and, instead of paying for them, left the bill for the next guy, along with a complete decimated economy, and even lowered the revenue, all while still racking up massive debts, that would have included what President Obama gets credited with, had he actually not been trying to sabotage the next administration.

    Here is the thing, when you decimate the US economy, and cause sky-rocketing unemployment, you are in no position to criticize the clean-up efforts.

    Clean up efforts - the man is making it worse - much worse. But thats what happens when a desperate and naive populace elects a salesman to pose as a leader. This huge gov't is out of control and has no accountability. And Obama actually thinks that increasing gov't jobs is the answer to our unemployment woes? Subsidizing these public sector jobs off the backs of private sector wage earners is NOT the answer.
    Gov't bankrupt, unemployment rampant, social security raped, post office broke, credit shot, medicare screwed, dollar worthless, inflation skyrocketing, taxes booming, debt out of control. I know, its all Bushes fault! Isn't socialism wonderful?
    Remember - A larger, more powerful gov't equals a smaller, less powerful YOU!
    About a year left of the clown show...
