Step one at both state and Federal levels is to start dedicating highway taxes to, believe it or not, HIGHWAYS.
Neither one of them lost the general election. The last person to lose the general then later win the presidency was Nixon- and HE had the advantage of running against the second choice of a demoralized party (unless you think Nixon had any chance at all against Bobby Kennedy had he not been assassinated).
Now who's not serious? McCain was just Romney without executive experience and a better sense of playing to the media. He is another big-government inside-the-Beltway establishment power monger. I honor the sacrifices he made for the country in his youth- but, that does NOT grant him a free pass for the rest of his life! The best thing about him being the nominee in '08 is after the anti-Bush hysteria of the previous 8 years, only a literally resurrected Reagan could have beaten the "historic" Obama- may as well waste the run on McCain. As for Palin "dragging down" the McCain Campaign- her presence on the ticket is the only reason McCain didn't need to concede 30 minutes after the polls OPENED on election day.

You'll note that Obama generally doesn't say government; he usually says "The Government." Indicating the Federal Government (rapidly becoming more of a National Government). Rather than waste space acquainting you with the true history of those 4 items, it's merely necessary to focus on the President's actual quote Mr. Prager was rebutting: "We gave our citizens schools and colleges, infrastructure and the Internet." (We'll leave aside your replacement of "gave" with the infinitesimally more defensible "provide".) That one sentence encapsulates EVERYTHING wrong with the Progressive Liberal movement in general, and Obama in particular. The source of the resources required for those is not merely ignored, but totally negated. In their world "citizen" is synonymous with "subject", and all wealth belongs to the society at large to be distributed to it's members as said society deems appropriate. And the self-anointed elite represent society, of course, and will obviously be responsible for the "deeming".

Point of interest: the Administration has traded exploration leases on the southern Atlantic Continental Shelf (which may or may not be granted production permits if/when obtainable resources are discovered, depending upon who wins in '16) for designating 12.5 million acres of ANWR a protected wilderness area- including the 1.5 million acres of the coastal plain where we KNOW there are energy reserves.

Mr. Bialosky, one aspect of your analysis is entirely incorrect. Ms. Gonzalaez most certainly IS a fool. It seems to be a prerequisite for service as a Democrat legislator.
No, she wouldn't. She'd merely take target practice with her security detail.

As is modern liberalism.
A pity, Would have been deliciously ironic if an anti-gun leftist idiot shill like Gregory would be yet another example of the idiocy of the anti-gun movement.

Sorry, Marco, but no. I like you, I really do. You need more experience, however. Your early mis-step on amnesty will need more time and corrective action than the walk-back you did after the deal fell apart. And this year especially, NOBODY w/o executive experience should even be considered.
