^^^ They may act like they disagree for the cameras but come three months from now, they'd both be sucking on the same lollipop. They're both pro war, pro bailout, pro deficit spending, pro patriot act. Two heads of the same snake, IMO.
Here here! On the analysis...political and football.
NJ ONLY IF he really believed what he says you might get chills- guy is an empty shirt- he DOES not know what he believes as evidence to his 20 year movement on healthcare- women's rights- he is a shill for the extreme of the republican party which is why he will eventually not win... Two more debates .... we shall see
So those complaining about the thread being political had no idea it was a political thread based on the subject line? give us a break......if you don't like the thread don't open it and sure as hell don't give your opinion on the validity of it. this is a football board for sure but it's also a community. i'd say a presidential election is an important,relevant, and interesting topic amongst nd fans.
Not how it works, here. There are probably 47,382 message boards out there devoted to politics. I don't go to any of them to discuss Notre Dame football. There are also 46,257 other topics which are "important, relevant and interesting" topics amongst ND fans, but that doesn't mean they should be discussed here. You're right, this is a "community" but it's a community linked together by love of Notre Dame football, other Notre Dame sports and Notre Dame, itself. For quite a few years, the board, as orchestrated by Lou, Jason and John Haynsworth, when he worked here, have tried to maintain a vibe of civil discussion and difference of opinion on the topics I just mentioned. There was an off-topic board created for all other talking points. That philosophy has served the board well. It's not a question of what's important in life. There are a half-million things more important than Notre Dame football (except none will be this Saturday night), but they can be discussed elsewhere. Here, we like to open any thread with the understanding that it will be centered on Notre Dame, or an occasional humorous story, or a deserving request for prayers for loved ones. That's been a successful formula here. No disrespect to anyone who wants to discuss all other matters of importance, but there is a place on this website for all such topics, let alone a zillion other websites across the internet.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
Both have changed their stances on many issues over the years. They are politicians.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
