And she heralds campaign's impact on dreams of women
I have used the Canadian health care system many many times over the years.
It's excellent! The problem is that people compare what happens with marginal
and elective situations with the typical response for ALL health care here.
That's an unfair and misleading comparison. In fact, Canadians have easy access
to free preventive health care and immediate response to necessary major care.
They do need to restructure the financing of their services but
Canada's economy is growing much faster than ours and they can well afford to do
it when they sell the changes to the public. The growth of their
economy is possibly due to those American car manufacturing jobs that have moved
from Detroit north of the border as a previous poster said but also from their
technology sector jobs. I suppose selling lower priced prescription drugs to
Americans who can't afford to buy them here is part of it too.
Obama's "change" is nothing more than the dusting off of the same old tired,
failed and rejected policies of his predecessors of the past forty years--those
notorious promulgators of "change"--Dukakis, Mondale, McGovern, Carter, Gore,
Kerry and now Obama. One notable difference between those "change" artists of
the past and Obama is that Obama, with his incredible gift of words and oratory,
has been able to disguise his "changes" so they aren't recognizable as the same
old tired, failed and rejected policies of the past. Let us remember that
Democracy is the worst form of government except all those others that have been
tried and defeat the socialist elitist. Hold your nose if necessary but vote
I feel sorry for you guys....still no one decent to vote for.... well now it is
no longer the 3 stooges to choose from but only two...laurel and hardy instead
of larry moe and curly!!!!! if this the best that the usa can do you guys are
in dire straits....who are the independents this year...have not heard any or
much about them
You personify the opinion most people (wrongly I thought) have of Utahns. I hope
you are not LDS. You could disagree with Democrats, Clinton or Obama. But must
you do so by making fun of people in the Special Olympics? That is a very
worthwhile and admirable cause for very special children of God. Yet, you use
them as pawns in your little political bite. Thank you God that I do not live
in Utah where such mean spirited people seem to be the norm.

Yes Thank you Hillary for showing me how wonderful it is to have a Respecting
and Loving Husband who cheats on you, disses you, and shows you a total lack of
RESPECT simply by being such a "Womanizer", and by being such a great example as
a husband! It makes me proud to be an American Woman, especially with you as an
example to me as to what An AMerican woman should be, and what she should
Dear Re: confused.Health care: Canada is nearly bankrupt from their govt.
health care and their care isn't as good as ours. Many Candadians come to the US
to get operations because waiting lists. Research it!Taxes the rich: Same
old lie they have told us forever. I am not rich but I sure do pay lots of
taxes--almost 50% of my income in fed, state and local taxes. Family
values: Our leaders are our teachers. What did Bill Clinton teach the youth of
America about morality?I am still confused and I don't have to watch the
Fox New Channel. I agree, why would anyone vote for a Dem unless you are a
socialist. By the way, will dead people be allowed to vote again this election?
Interesting they always vote democratic isn't it?
Now that Senator Clinton has ended her run perhaps all the Clinton haters will
have to find new material to refer to when you wish to be so self-righteous. Oh
wait ! Senator Obama! A godsend for you. No wait. Can't do that since that
"revelation" back in '78. Oh yes you can. You CAN SAY it is because of his
political beliefs. Carry on !
Obama voted for the immigration reform bill THAT McCAIN WROTE. BOTH of them
oppose a constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriages. BOTH want to ease
restrictions on Cuba. The BIG reason to vote for Obama is that he
is committed to getting troops out and stopping the drain of the 4100 American
lives and $550 BILLION it's already cost.
SLMG has it right. The rest of you are just using bumper sticker accusations
because that's the way many of you think. Ah, the power of GOP marketing.
I think you're misinformed. I think Democrats want policies that are realistic
and can be enforced. And I think people like Fox News distort that. After all,
John McCain wants the same immigration policy. And you really must
check the data on universal health. Countries that have it have higher rates of
live birth, longer life spans and greater economic growth than we do. The CIA
(yes, Central Intelligence Agency) keeps a data base you can check so you're not
feeling the source is "Democratic". And auto industry jobs could return from
Canada where heath care is provided and not an expense to manufacturers.I don't mind if the Democrats raise taxes on the executives of the oil
companies and other multimillionaires (like Cindy McCain) who cleaned up in the
Bush years. Finally, family values are what WE teach our children.
They don't change with political parties. But, meanwhile, the government we've
had hasn't even registered how much harder it's getting for families and their
corruption has included members of Congress preying on young kids away from home
working as pages for criminy sakes!
I am confused too! I wish someone could help me understand why anyone would vote
for a Democrat if you love freedom and your country! Democrats want as many
illegal aliens here as posible to get more votes to stay in power. They want
universal health care that has bankrupted every country that has ever tried it.
They refuse to fix Social Security which will go broke soon. They refuse to
allow oil drilling anywhere so we can get energy prices down. They want to
"negotiate" with terrorists. They will raise our taxes (again). Family values
will suffer and abortions will increase! Those are not my words, these are the
"changes" they promise! Lord help us! You may need your food storage after all,
because Obama will win the election. Doesn't say much about people in America
What I will never understand is why Democrats can get aways with anything in
this country but if a Republican leader does something dishonest, he is forced
to resign (rightly so)! I still think of the crooks Bill Clinton pardoned just
before he left office. Not a word or questions in the national press about it!
Not a word about him selling military secrets to China or what he did with the
money! All we are told, is it depends on what is, is! Clinton fatique is real!
It's okay for the Re-Publican machine to teach its adherents the politics and
talking points of personal destruction. It is not okay for the opposition to
indict the Re-Publicans for the same type of behavior.We will NEVER
get out of the mess we are in unless this stops. We know that George and Bill
caused EVERYTHING to happen as well as LIED to cover their tracks.Let's move the agenda to more important subjects like FREE TRADE, ILLEGAL
IMMIGRATION, ENERGY, HEALTH CARE, and SOCIAL SECURITY, as well as IRAQ. I know,
I know it feels soooooo good and just to rail on each other. However, time
apears to be running out...
Hillary made a very impressive speech and because she did, every woman and man
should be proud of her for the strength she has shown. She was not the choice
of all of the people but that doesn't mean she does not deserve praise for
running for the highest office in the land. As far as who is honest
and who isn't I think we should all look in the mirror before we cast that first
stone. And who slept with whom before, during or after marriage is something
that God will judge them on, I don't approve of sex out of marriage sex by
anyone but I do believe in repentance and forgiveness. It is time
to get on with the election campaigns now that the 2 choices have been make and
quit raking up the muck from the past and work for a great future for the best
country in the world.
Oh! And if "honesty" is important to you, look for video of the townhall
meeting where someone asked him about calling his wife the vile name that he did
in front of reporters and staff and McCain was so craven about it that he not
only evaded the question but tried to make it appear that the questioner was the
offender. That should tell you a LOT about the man's honesty v his ambition.
In some respects, cheating on his previous wife pales in comparison to speaking
to his current wife in the way he has in front of reporters and staff.
Wow! What does Bill think about all this?do da,do da.
Where is the "honesty" in using your government influence to interfer in the
investigation of Charles Keating in the S&L scandals, then stand for campaign
finance reform, then evade all the provisions of the legislation you wrote, then
take Americorp mortgage lobbyists into your advisory group?
Many more people like me (open minded and caring for everyone no matter what
their religion, sexual preference gender etc) all over Utah. It is the those
small minded people that are slowly disappearing. So, with that in mind, I will
stay and watch those type of people disappear.
What a joke. Hillary endorsing BHO. Again, what a joke. She and Bill are so
low that they will put on a false front only to derail BHO behind the scenes so
she can run again in 4 years. She has no desire to see him in the White House.
She is so self centered that she, and Bill, will stop at nothing to get back
into the Lincoln Bedroom. Don't you all see that? What sadness for
America, all the way around.
Being too old is something hopefully we will all go trough. Being dishonest is a
choice, a choice the Clinton's made on their own.
As Merril Cook once said "We are all just ugly actors". I don't trust any of
Ann: Check your history, McCain also cheated on his wife with his now
current wife. He has admitted this as fact. So what's the difference? No
respect shown by him.
It was a far sight more moving and genuine than McCain's pitiful speech. Here
he is trying to make the case for why he's not too old to be President and he
goes on national TV looking like he's already on life support and it's not doing
See ya later!
A great speech by Clinton, much better than expected. You know it's a good
speech when the right wing parrots at Faux news struggle to come up with
something negative. It was sincere, from the heart, and the crowd knew it. A
great contrast to the last McCain speech before a few dozen unenthusiastic
people who were on the verge of falling asleep. I've been very leery about
Hillary Clinton becoming Obama's running mate, but after that speech have
changed my mind. It would be an unbeatable ticket in November. Clinton would
deliver Ohio, Pennsylvania, probably even Florida resulting in a Democratic
landslide. It's very important for this country that we get the Republicans out
of the White House and get a large majority in both houses of congress.
Above! (Not all), but I think people that critisize others are so arrogant!
Good for you if you have a husband that has been wonderful (many people don't).
And I doubt many people have stood up and cared about so many people as Hillary
has!It was a wonderful speech and very moving.I'm sometimes told to
literally "move" if I don't like it here...maybe I will. The arrogance and
self-righteousness here is terrible. But I love so many of you that it's hard.
I will continue to "live and let live". Get over yourselves...there are many in
the world that are good people.
It wasn't her gender that made it difficult. Her easy dishonesty was so
apparent, too many rejected that.Even an unknown young leader looked
better. Now onward, to decide if a grumpy guy with a bit of experience
looks better than that.
That's a good one, Are we talking about the same husband who demonstrated his
respect for marriage and women with Monica L. in the Oval Office?I'm just
happy that this Clinton - White House mess may finally be over.
Was Chelsea Clinton really 28 years old in 2002? I think this is in error.
Sorry but it wasn't "genuine" and it wasn't "moving". Anybody could see just by
watching her grit her teeth when she said it, that she didn't want to. She is
such a phony.
Oh thank you Hillary, because of you I have self-respect once again. Just if I
could get my husband to be like your husband who shows so much respect for
marriage and women. Yes the Clintons are all about simply helping others,
especially women. Thank you thank you!
First black nominee?First woman nominee?Cruel to have to choose
one.Too bad it isn't the special olympics, they both could win.
I'm so proud of America
Who else was she supposed to endorse, John Mcain?.
