Carter vs Reagan, 1980.
Carter was waaaaay ahead in summertime polls.
Result?

Carter is (was) actually a very intelligent man (POTUS), one that still had integrity, and MUCH much foresight!!

(go ahead and let the comments fly--those who WISH they had Carter integrity and there's no denying the foresight!)

Flip Flop

US presidential candidate Mitt Romney has predicted a "very successful" Olympics, hours after talking of "disconcerting" signs in London.

He backtracked while meeting PM David Cameron, after telling US TV Britain may not be ready to stage the Games.

He said all Games saw "small" mistakes and he had seen "great progress" in the UK. But his remarks were later seized on by London Mayor Boris Johnson.

Is "namE" proper grammar execution? I looked in the "Longman Handbook for Writers and Readers, 6th ed" and it was not cited as being allowable.

Good day.

It appears that Mitt Romney is not much of a diplomat, at least not so far, the good news is that he's only visiting two more nations one of which is Israel.

Wait until those folks hear that Jesus has Missouri on his agenda.

Union leaders speak

Like intelligent Israelis would believe that.

(or is that libuhrulTicDUHm for "Missouri is on Romney's slate".

Israel knows who it's friends are-and who it's friends aren't.

I agree.

Doesn't change the fact he was an economic disaster with a very disjointed administration. He also lacked the ability to rally public support.

I know it's a hard concept for some to understand, but Hillary "gets" the free market-ISN'T FREE.

And that for some it's no doubt "yikes" scary-that you'd have to go and BUY cookies of convenience in your nearest favorite deli lol.
