This one has already been DUmbed down. That’s a lot of votes to overcome. I think it’s beyond repair. JMO.

The total number of responses to a poll on a page carrying an extreme leftie op-ed should tell you that nobody gives a rat’s butt what these wack jobs think. It does tell you that the number of lefties that can stomach the rhetoric is getting smaller by the day.

From what I could tell, you can vote all you want but it isn’t going to count, because you have to sign up to WAPO to have it count. So this is just plain bogus!!!

I don’t think there was ONE person out of all the candidates that even came close to the way I feel about the insane border situation. Palin, maybe; but the rest really wimped out IMHO.

I just realized that I wasn’t clear. It was not Kathleen Parker’s article I was intending to describe as the leftie op-ed. I had been reading the thousand or so comments on the article and my fingers got the better of me. I apologize, Ms. Parker made some very clear points about the mendacious rhetoric coming from Obama and his minions.

ANY online voting polls are utterly ridiculous. I don’t understand why anyone bothers. They are the top of the list of “The Most Meaningless Things in History”.

Hmmm - Let's see now... Trust a Muslim or an American? The Muslim despises and hates America, the American loves America!

Who do I trust more on issues of my country's National Security? I think I'll go with a real American over the weak minded Muslim criminal and Agitator in Chief.

This is a joke, right? I trust hussein all right. I trust him to have (or get) a reasonably good picture of what the right national security move would be - and then to do the opposite.

Neither guy has any kind of military or national security background. Either one is capable of finding/selecting good or bad advisers, then taking (or not) that advice.

The thing is, I trust Mitt to do the right thing, or try to do the right thing for America. I firmly believe hussein has, and will continue to intentionally do the wrong thing for America. Like the good little Marxist/socialist he is, hussein wants a weaker America, one that cannot act unilaterally on the world stage. That is hussein's goal for world socialism - to take away or at least severely reduce the threat of the United States.

Yep. Look at it this way; it's just a circle-jerk for lib-tards.

The Compost runs on advertising. You (being the good little Barry-bot) sign up, so that you can give your support. The Compost sells its list of members to its advertisers, they make money. They hire you. The advertisers spam you, and you buy crap that supports them. They sell your info to others, you get more spam, etc. And all the while, you feel good because the money you spend is going to the 'good' companies.

You know this because the Compost tells you so.

It's a whole 'circle of life' thing for the drooling liberal ass-hats.

This one takes the cake. The participants most likely don't even know what the question was about. The FOREIGNER won't even enforce our borders and is suing states who do and you DEMOCRAT FRAUDS are trying to shovel a pile of bull crap like this on us. Come November you are going to see the biggest political democrat wipeout in history.

I just posted in post 30 that the link is incorrect (also copied my post below). I did a search of Google News of poll Obama Romney and NOTHING came up that had anything to do with national security.

This leads me to believe that there is NO SUCH POLL and the poster was playing a prank when posting nonsense that 77% think Obama is better in National Security — knowingly posting a link to a different article. Probably wanted to see if anyone actually goes to the link and notices it.

I think this is a non-existent poll.


My earlier post (post 30, when I was giving the OP the benefit of the doubt:

Link incorrect.
