@Donna: CC couldn't EAT on $732/month, let alone live on it. @James & Max: Obama is, at the same time, both inept/ineffective AND so powerful that he is dismantling democracy as we know it. Amazing, isn't it? Where's Ronald Reagan when you need him...Saint Ronnie: come back!!!

Mike, the correlation between waist size/weight and how much someone eats is not what you think. The poorest states in this country are also the most obese. If you are going to attack him, find something better to say.

@Chunk: Ok, you asked. He's routinely makes puerile, boorish comments and does a superb job at alienating people. I dare say I've seen no evidence of humility or compassion in him, and I consider those to be among the essential characteristics of a leader.

"his strong unshakable shoulder" Yikes. Please limit the Kool Aid consumption. There is no recovery. Everything is made in China, high paying US jobs are continually shipped overseas en masse, and not a single politician has the courage to even state the problem out loud, let alone propose a solution.

Gov Christie is decisive and a very effective leader of a dysfunctional state government he inherited and he is the best Gov period
