JakeD,

"I doubt that Barack HUSSEIN Obama wins Indiana today.."

Nice contribution. I thought they dealt with this sort of racist stuff in Alabama 40 years ago.

Sorry, sleazy inuendo is not going to win your candidate any votes.

HRC is not being crowned queen. She insults our intelligence by making promises we know she can't keep without help of House and Senate. She is devious, untrustworthy and divisive. VOTE OBAMA, the peacemaker!!

Actually McRomney ticket would be nice and fun to watch because both of them are flip-flopping on daily bases...I guess they need a lot of papers in pockets to remember what was their stand for every event the other day.
Anyway I hope people in Indiana will refuse dynasty today and send HRC to the history books instead of White House.

You republican trolls are idiots. Why not go cry some more that your candidate McCain isn't who your right wing lunatic radio hosts wanted. You will be crying even more when Billary or Big Brown wins in November.

McRomney!

Live it, Learn It, LOVE IT! ;~)

If you love secret government, vote Clinton.

If you like seeing big corporations controlling your world, vote Clinton.

If you enjoy empty promises that cannot be fulfilled, vote Clinton.

On the other hand, you could vote for someone who doesn't do it that way and will make a real difference for us working stiffs.

Vote Obama.

Clinton takes a position and she clings to it no matter how wrong she is. She did it with Iraq for years and she is doing it with the gas tax now. We have had that for eight years of Bush, why suffer with it for four years of Clinton.

What Clinton did with the airport in Tuzla is lying like we have never had from a Democratic candidate since 2000. The ferocity of her mendacity is truly unique.

Come on Indiana voters, don't fall for the Hillary "hype". "Gas Tax Holiday"?! Not going to happen. "Mandated Universal Health Care"?! Not going to happen.

We need a politician that is going to level with American people, not pander and lie. Not another Bush-type in the White House is what we will get with Hillary and McCain.

Obama in 08!

I doubt that Barack HUSSEIN Obama wins Indiana today (and, she didn't close the gap enough in NC but, hopefully, Hillary can keep the combined vote total LESS than 121,667 so she can still claim the popular vote lead):

MAX:

Hillary told lies. McCain told lies. Obama told lies. Bush told Lies. Bill Clinton told lies. HW Bush told lies. Reagan told lies. Carter told lies. Ford told lies. Nixon told lies.

YOU have told lies. I have told lies. EVERYONE HAS TOLD LIES.

GET THE PICTURE???? Get over yourself.

People should recognize that Hillary's gas tax holiday 1) probably will not get much to the regular citizen as the oil companies will scarf it up when they get another opportunity to bump up the real price of gasoline even more. 2) Bush isn't going to sign any windfall profit tax on the oil companies 3) About 6,000 real good jobs(the kind hard to find these days) on highway construction in Indiana and many more in North Carolina will go by the wayside. 4) The net effect of this will be even greater, as this money would have been recirculated many times, with the money for labor and materials going onto other supporting businesses and employed people. Any more money spent on increased gas usage will take a quick exit right on straight out of the country to Arab oil producers and the Iranians and other members of OPEC.

It will be tight, that is for sure.

Hillary's gas tax plan will lose 70,000 blue collar jobs in North Carolina alone, and will cause roads and highways nationwide to fall into disrepair. If the oil companies are extremely generous, you might save a few pennies on gas. But the gas companies will NOT pass the savings onto you.

Obama's plan does not have a gas tax holiday. The above scenario won't apply.

Both their plans have windfall profits tax on the gas companies. Obama's "Robin Hood" plan is harsher on the gas companies. Tax the crap out of them until their prices go down. Then use the revenue from those taxes to give every middle class family a $1000 tax cut.

Hillary Clinton's plan is easier on the gas companies, and the revenue will be used for some environmental research crap. Which would be fine, if her Gas Tax Holiday wasn't screwing over everybody else.

If her plan were put in effect, hundreds of thousands of working class jobs would be laid off, our roads will become damaged; millions of dollars in damage would be lost from the resulting car accidents; and if you're lucky, you might possibly save $30 from Clinton's plan. Obama's plan will give you $1000. Hmmm, I know which one I want!

Is there any way to report the terribly offensive comments like "Seed of Change" and the rest? They don't add anything to the discourse and are barely even intelligible most of the time. Moreover, they usually cross over into libel territory.
