    I guess this confirm that Hillary's is not gonna be the Veep :singing:

    On a related note, the DNC futher stipulated - "Also In keeping with our nominee's (Obama) positions, while we not be accepting donations from federal lobbyists or political action committees, we will be acceping donations from convited felons or folks with ties to orginazed crime in the Chicago area." :cool:

    Lottie Shackleford, the Vice Chair of the DNC, is a registered lobbyist. Will he be resigning soon? I doubt it. This is just more window dressing from Obama.

    Okay, cuz, I'll try to remember not to call you dude anymore. :rolleyes:

    Wes needs to learn accuracy. It's simple enough.

    Did you see him the other day, blaming George W. Bush for the US cemetery in France for the dead of D-Day? :D

    The point is accuracy had nothing to do with this board, unfortunately.. next time call Harry on one of his rants when he posts a thread..

    BTW who are you the accuracy police?? Did I miss something??

    Harry just rants with his own opinions. Wes is attempting to use "news" stories to make political points, only usually his "stories" aren't related to his titles or they're flatly innaccurate (see thinkprogress).

    And I figured since you were charging around calling people on things, I'd do it to, it seemed like fun.

    Harry does the same thing, open your eyes.. he will take a story and put his own spin on it.. you seen tolerant of that, however you are quick to pick on this guy.

    Okay. Just to be sure though, why don't you send me a PM the next time Harry posts 4-5 goofy left-wing stories in a row (or in his case, right wing stories) where the title and or the comment aren't really related to the story, that way I'll be sure to catch it.

    This game of "our party is better than your party" is laughable. Both parties have failed, in the past few years especially, at looking out for our interests. To squabble about which one is better is asinine and futile. We all need to put pressure on both parties, consistently and fiercely, to make sure that they do a better job looking out for us. This D vs. R is stupid.

    So they won't take money from lobbyists, they'll just hire them. :D I see. Our confusion.
