Oh, no doubt, I would personally donate money and campaign for an Anthony Weiner Presidency. The State of the Unions would be hilarious.

If her campaign is any indication, she has no more integrity than George Bush did.

Towards the end, she was virtually running on "I'm white."

Obama, now is your chance. Make it clear to everyone they're holding the world hostage to get their own short-sighted goals passed.


Oh you know Obama doesn't have the balls to do that.

Yeah, but to Bush's credit, he was never known for capitulating to anything. If I could get a George Bush for Progressives that wasn't retarded, I'd vote for it in a heartbeat.

Of course, he's still fairly young. He could work his way up: mayor, then governor, then do a Presidential run.

By that time America'd all be China's bitch, bankrupt, or both.

Or India's bitch. If it's the latter, then I want a weak leader with no balls.

Please, he's a pussy. He'll always find a way to make concession because he wants to be "bipartisan", despite the fact that The Republicans do NOT. Honestly, he's like an abused housewife who keeps telling her friends that he's really a nice guy, he's just super stressed about his job and it was her fault that he gave her a shiner.
