I don't have a double standard. On Gore I was talking about the issue only, totally independent of Gore. So yes, you missed the point and continue to it seems.
So you won't answer the question because its not on topic here in the parking lot and none of the threads every get off topic? You didn't have a problem answering the Gore thing (off topic) but for some unknown reason cannot answer the Obama pork spending question.I also think it is on topic because its about spending and you questioned Palin and the Rep. so I just put the ball back in your court. To answer your question. No, I don't have a problem with what they have spent on her clothing because it is not my money nor tax payers that purchased her clothing. You keep on bringing up Joe six pack but he is not running for office and is not the one in need to look great for several months while campaining. I look at my own wife's clothing and see what she hanging in the closet and just kind of shake my head. I think allot of women spend way too much on clothing and none of them are running for VP of the US. I bet if you asked most guys they would say that women in general spend too much on clothing and that they take up more than 90% of the closet place in their home.

I don't have a major problem with his pork requests. He's been upfront about it, he hasn't lied about it like others have, and the majority of his requests have been for education, non-profit groups, and social services. And his requests are a drop in the bucket when compared to what the gov't spends.

If we want to seriously cut costs, how about getting the F out of Iraq for starters?

I think this thread is going in all sorts of directions and if we start talking about Iraq again it's just going to go even farther off course.

I don't want to talk about Iraq either, but if we're gonna play this game of who's got the bigger fish to fry, I thought it was relevant to throw out there.

We always hear this drop in the bucket when talking about millinos of dollars and goverment spending. Maybe if we started with these drop in the bucket spending habbits of congress then we would be at a great starting point. I just cannot look at 900 million as a drop in the bucket.

Where is $900M coming from?

For 2008 he had $97.4M

I wonder what we're spending in Iraq.

Maybe we should shut this thread down and not play the game. I mean do you really see this going anywhere?

And I'm not saying that just because you refuse to be on my 2012 ticket

Buy something nice. You'll want to look good when you and Buster give your concession speech to the SmootSmack/Offiss 2012 ticket. That's right. You may be crossing party lines, but I'm crossing sanity lines!!!

Well I'm not sure how long we could have talked abou Palin and her families clothing but I guess someone could post a dailey pick of what she is wearing and we could vote on how she looks on that day.

We aslo have not touch on illegals in the US.

It's all good, it would be pretty boring if we never had any disagreements.
