I'm starting to see why people are already fed up with the election process
This Republican youtube debate is the first debate I've watched all the way through, and I'm already disgusted with the whole thing. A bunch of stodgy old white men complaining about bullshit. No substance. Nothing about how to fix education, or tackle global warming or our energy supply. Just more fearmongering about brown people and Liberals.

Sheesh.

3. I've got a candidate
Obama. He's cast as the 21st century candidate, and I suppose I've bought it. I just think its cool that a guy like "Barack Hussein Obama," whose run his campaign on optimism and the future, could be in the White House.

And I am praying; I'm praying Hillary doesn't get the nomination. There's a reason the largest applause of the night came for Huckabee suggesting we shoot Hillary into space.

4. I don't think it was necessary
for you to tell us who your candidate is. You did that with the following quote, from your 1st post;

"A bunch of stodgy old white men"

That told me right there who you support.

6. I just think you could have left the ...
"white" out of that comment. They are stodgy old men, but color has nothing to do with that.

7. Fair enough
I'll give you that. I would have liked to see something about rebuilding New Orleans/the Gulf Coast though. Our black community is important.

10. Yes, and I can tell you...
that I am appalled that there is NOTHING being done about it. I was watching...something on discovery Hd the other night, about St. Bernard's Parish, and them trying to get the $111K, that they were promised for the people, and those FEMA bastards waited until the last fucking second to tell them, OH, Hey, you have to fill out 100 fucking pages of paper work BEFORE you get the money. This is an outrage!! This has dragged out far, far too long. They were able to get the paperwork in on time, then FEMA came up with another EXCUSE, and to this day, thy still don't have the money.

Jesus Christ. How hard is this? Give them the fucking money.
