You ever notice how Republican former presidents and GOP losers of general elections

just fade into the sunset, while Democrats in both categories continue to shine and devote themselves to public service?

1. Bob Dole was fairly active after he lost.

He did the Viagra commercials and other endorsements, of course, but he also worked with George McGovern to fight hunger. That would make him a pariah in today's Republican party.

5. There was also Gerald Ford...

He became close friends with President Carter, joined him in work for the Carter Center.

3. or how the losers are given unlimited acess to spew bullshit!

McCain is out of control, a guy who got his ass kicked, yet is on TV all the time. Kerry barely gets any TV invites, a more apt comparison would be Dukakis.

It is a friggen joke.

4. What do you expect,

today's media is owned by 5 right wing billionaires. It all about their egos. They will continue to Trash talk our President because he is not from their social circles. This group of mega wealthy people have no respect for someone who looks different than them. They for the most part are nothing more than little spoiled frat boys. Fortunately most of the populace were intelligent enough to vote for a President that matters to them and not to the 420 families . There are Politicians and then there are Statesman. Mr. Obama fits the later,much like Jimmy Carter,he will always be a natural leader in the world for many decades.
