I didn't say that sane people would support Obama over Romney. Obama is winning. The Polls indicate that America has lost it's collective mind.
The polls are not accurate because they routinely over sample democrats and under sample Republicans and Independents.

In reality, Romney has been ahead of Obama for weeks now.

I'd love it. I'd post every day to tell you how much more than you I was making, how little work I had to do, and how hard I'm laughing at your punk ass.

LOL!

How "puss" of you, Rob...:)

In your mind, he'll have won the election months after he loses to Obama, and at that point, you will snap like a burnt pretzel.

I hope you don't run amok with guns at a mall, but with that big a displacement of reality, I wouldn't bet against it....LOL

I, personally have never felt this strongly against a President in my life and it bleeds over in my day to day life.
It is amazing how quickly you forgot bush and 9/11.

?? Are you saying it was smarter to be a bush voter? Asking for the 9/11 attacks, the depression, the needless wars, massive unemployment, an exodus of our manufacturing base, the destruction of our public schools?

I suppose you are a republican and very much in favor of the USSC voiding our election to put bush in office. What a great idea to void the constitution.

Gore would have done better. Even if Gore were awful, he would have been better than bush. Besides you missed the point. Whether or not Gore would have been the winner of the election or bush, it was decided by the USSC, not the people. The USSC voided our election and decided they would appoint the president. Clearly they need to be brought back to obeying the constitution. But it is too bad the GOP is so solidly opposed to anything related to the constitution, they would prevent any action.

Of course it's "speculation," dunderhead, since he wasn't elected. But how could he have been WORSE than Bush, the worst President of modern times?

Idiots call observed warming a "hoax" and blame Al Gore. That's why we call them "idiots."

Nobody blames gore for anything other than exploiting the gullible to enrich himself. That and being a hypocrite who calls for energy conservation then uses more than several households in his mansion. Of course his private jet is a hybrid, right?
Here is a clue for you. When it was discovered that the data was cooked about "global warming" it instantly became "climate change". The earth has been changing since it was formed. Warm periods and ice ages.
Let me guess. In the 70's you believed an ice age was upon us and we were all going to freeze to death?
Not only do you CONTINUE to demonstrate that to you and other Deniers, Gore is a big part of global warming, you then turn and lie about it.

There was no "cooked data." That is a lie concocted around the Denier/Rightie/big Energy plot known as 'Climategate,' which accurately describes the theft and carefully selected release of stolen e-mails from the U. of East Anglia. SEVERAL academic bodies as well as a government body have investigated it and NONE have found any fraud or 'cooked data.' Just another Denier lie, sadly.

"Climate change" accurately describes the result of global warming, and no educated person thinks they're the same thing, or that one replaced the other. The claim's laughable, of course.

Saying "the earth has changed since it was formed" is merely a silly and obvious claim along the lines of 'the sky's blue, you know.' Of course it's changed, the question is hwo much MAN is doing to change it, idiot.

Finally, no, I wasn't touting 'global cooling' in the '70s and neither were most scientists. Warming has been the basis of scientific study since at least the '60s, and continues to be the central topic of climate science today.

FYI, idiot.

Evidently you did not read what I said about gore. He is one of many that used the stupid who believe "global warming" to enrich themselves. You gorons will never believe it. Even after his hypocrisy has been exposed.
The elitist academia covering for their buddies is like a bunch of buddies hitting a titty bar and then all of them covering with their wives by claiming they went to a baseball game.
Of course it is pertinent that the climate has been changing since the earth was formed. It shows it will change no matter what people do. And you will believe the dumbest shit your masters feed you.
"gorons"... love it.

I read everything you wrote, and responded. If you're too stupid to understand, or too pig-headed to appreciate the factual statements I've offered, that's not my fault.

Anyone who thinks that those he disagrees with are "Gorons" [sic] is probably too goddamn stupid to even comprehend warming, much less agree with it.

Hint, dumbass: The fact that climate changes for NATURAL reasons does not in any way mean that it can't also change DUE TO MAN'S INFLUENCES.

I know that's over your head, but think about it at least until it gives you a headache, huh?

Idiot.

..blah, blah...
Further, you've done nothing to expose ANY "hypocrisy" on Gore's part. The fact that he would push for carbon trading and support such a policy by engaging in it himself isn't "hypocritical," it shows he's willing to put his money where his mouth is, even if you disagree that carbon trading is the right way to deal with warming (I'm not sympathetic to the idea, myself).

Again, you're an idiot.

Divide and conquer. Fox News and those paid by the wealthy support the division, because while we are arguing with each other, they rob us both blind.
