Looks like this was indeed a gambit, and the GOP accepted

    Nice call there, Brass:)
  2. Not so sure this was anything planned by Obama, and as the GOP said, more like he recovered a republican fumble near the goal line. Still weird how the best Obama campaign ads are coming from Romney and Santorum.

    We'll see how this plays out I guess.

    Thanks. Unfortunately, I can't see the video. The square is blank for me.

    Use Chrome or Firefox (both work for me) - it doesn't seem to work with IE (empty white box)

    Curious, watching the Romney ad, what was the purpose of linking Santorum to Clinton?

    Yes, thank you. That was some fine viewing. :D

    I know the president was walking a fine line, but I hope he didn't exit his position too early and that it continues to give Santorum the kind of traction he needs to decisively derail the GOP at election. We must now rely on Santorum to continue digging with the shovel he's been given and to continue soiling Romney in the process, in the eyes of the GOP faithful.
  6. He couldn't wait much longer. The Catholic Church is an extremely powerful entity, and they did help to put him in office. I just hope he can calm them down now.

    OTOH. If women feel threatened, they will outnumber the Church, and some of those women will vote with their utereses(sic).

    One advantage of firefox is that, using the Adblock add-on, you can block graphics on this site, the ads, the star ratings, the emoticons from public sites, etc.
  8. And, sorry about the bad link, I presumed everyone had switched over to Chrome or Firefox. Not that there's anything wrong with IE.
