Dude! Rutgers is the New Jersey State school. I'm not here to tell yo that Harvard and Princeton have intellectual luminaries any more, but come on...Rutgers is the equivalent of 13th grade.
In another striking development, Rutgers students protested the substitute speaker, potential 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, for her refusal to properly staff the consulate in Benghazi, and for her callous remark of "What difference, at this point, does it make?", when testifying before a Senate investigative committee in January, 2013 on the same topic. No, wait!!! I got that wrong. They didn't do that at all. My mistake...
I'm not exactly sure of your point. Have there been calls for your candidacy that I have not heretofore seen or heard?

Getting Repeal Right

I appreciate the effort! I think some are redundant or vague ("integrity", "honesty", e.g.) but right on the money for the most part. But let's be honest - Americans in the video game age are NEVER going to coalesce around a platform this long and broad. I agree that the policy wonks should adopt a platform this broad, but the public needs a far less complicated set of principles to hold on to. My personal belief is that the next Republican candidate should hammer home three points: 1) Personal responsibility, 2) Limited government and low taxes, and 3) a strong military. Is it more complex than that? Of course it is, but the low information voter dominates the political landscape now, and that's, unfortunately, who we have to attract to our side. "KISS" should be our mantra: "Keep It Simple, Stupid"!
The word, "Apartheid" is simply not one most people use in everyday conversation - even, I would bet, if you're the Sec of State. This was a well-considered phrase, and Kerry is appropriately being criticized for it. His only "mistake" was that he regrets the flak he's taking over it. It is difficult to wash off true colors.
I suppose if you repeat something often enough, you can convince a certain percentage of the people, perhaps even including yourself, that it's true. Republicans have made many recommendations to improve the delivery of health care, including tort reform and allowing greater competition among insurance providers, even across state lines. But any recommendation that Republicans make that doesn't involve expansion of "health care" to a definition that includes every potential need one may have in their lifetimes isn't considered debatable. Remember that at the time this health care monstrosity was passed, Democrats held both houses of Congress, and it mattered not one bit what Republicans said - it was summarily ignored. Dems own this disaster, and you sound ridiculous arguing that, although Obamacare is unpopular and excessively costly, but that Republicans can't do better. Sometimes, Mr. Progressive, what you HAVE is better than what you GET with new legislation.
How did you get a $5,000 deductible? Please tell me what plan you're on!
Whatever...look, Obamacare is the absolute wrong thing for the country. It over-reaches and over-extends the federal government to a point that Jefferson wouldn't come close to recognizing. Moreover, it would have made Leonid Brezhnev and Fidel Castro laugh at us for our hypocrisy in claiming to be a republic. BUT....Obamacare is here, and all we're doing is sounding shrill in pointing out its deficiencies and how it falls short of its claims and goals. We need to begin girding for the next battle, which is, well, whatever the Dems say is the next Socialist objective. Perhaps mandatory and government-provided life insurance? Perhaps being told the routes we have to travel to work each day? Perhaps government-provided lunch kiosks at which we must dine? Embrace the Tea Party and toss out Dems and weak-kneed RINOs.
Hmmpphh...guess you told me, huh? We're on the same team george, I just want to change coaches. Your dismissal of the Tea Party is not only pretty offensive in the way you're going about it, but runs the risk of further alienating people with honest intellectual differences. Let's keep in mind that the real enemy is the Left, OK?
Sure would be tough to assemble a strong enough military with 24 million people to counter the 300 million still left in the states to your north.
Careful. Alec Baldwin said the same thing before Bush won his second term. And last I checked, Alec was still torturing us with those insipid "what's in your wallet" commercials.
