Dyslexic Hillary Staffer Meant to Plant Answers

by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace · 140 Comments · · Print This Story Print This Story

(2007-11-10) — After an awkward presidential debate performance last week by Sen. Hillary Clinton, and news Friday that her campaign staff had primed a questioner before a town hall meeting, the Clinton campaign revealed today that “an honest mistake by a dyslexic staffer” resulted in the recent blunders.

“Someone on Hillary’s preparation team, who has dyslexia, just got things mixed up,” said the unnamed campaign official. “They were hired to prepare Sen. Clinton with answers, not to prep audiences with questions. They misread the job description due to dyslexia, and just flip flopped the whole thing.”

Because of this fact, the source said, any political opponents who “pile on” Sen. Clinton over these issues are actually “piling on the handicapped.”

During last week’s debate, Sen. Clinton gave several contradictory answers to questions about whether to grant driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. In addition, former President Bill Clinton later told reporters that his wife “didn’t know what [moderator Tim Russert] was talking about” regarding the release of Clinton-era White House documents.

Before the Iowa town hall meeting Tuesday, Clinton staffers asked Grinnell College student Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff to pose a question about global warming, noting that she was worried about it. When the student complied, Sen. Clinton said, ” “Well, you should be worried. You know, I find as I travel around Iowa that it’s usually young people that ask me about global warming.

The Clinton campaign pledged that “from now on, we’ll let carefully-selected town hall participants ask their own totally spontaneous questions, and we’ll focus on prepping Hillary with answers that seem less disingenuous and more presidential.”

    You know, as I travel around the blogosphere, I can find no on offering a compelling reason why Madam Hillary should be (co)President…again.

    Could it be that she is the Queen of Pork? Or is that title a redundancy?

    How charmingly diverse!

    For someone who has the answers, planted or not, she scares the bejabbers out of me. I keep picturing a “dream team” of the she-devil and Osama Bamalama.

    There are few things that delight me more than the prospect of “duck and cover” when the ters strike again.

    I’m really just commenting to flog United Possums International. Hilly either will, or she won’t, and God help us if she wins.

    As a matter of passing interest, what’s with Pelosi and the do-nothing congress? I heard more promises than my wedding vows when the socialists seized office, but they’re running slow on the discorporation of America.

    The article linked above states:

    Speaking of the other candidates - I have to tell you guys that other fella from Arkansas is looking and sounding pretty good to me. I like his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will see more of this guy, and maybe we can elect him or one of the other decent candidates running on the RIGHT side of the ballot.

    Where’s Jack Ryan when he’s really needed?

    I noticed that when he became President in the novel, it was only after the 50 Governors, All 100 Senators, All 435 Representatives, the entire Supreme Court, etc., had been killed when the fuel laden airliner was flown into the Capitol building.

    I thought the most awesome part of the book was how replacements were found to replace the government. Like him or not, Clancy’s actions were great!

    If memory serves me right, anyone having ever attended a law school was barred from runnung for office. That one thing itself should form the basis of a Constitutional Amendment.

    The choice of Arch Liberal Alec Baldwin to play the role of Jack (John Patrick ) Ryan was ironic, at best.

    Jack - We need you! Perhaps Duncan Hunter comes closest?

    I just listened to NBC’s morning news. A lady realtor (A true party line liberal) said, and I quote; “Everywhere around the world, everyone hates us…..”

    A Conservative moderator, of course, certainly would have asked, “If what you say is true. Then why if ‘Everywhere around the world, everyone hates us….. ‘ Why, unlike the old East Berlin, there really aren’t that many Americans risking their lives to escape to other countries, there aren’t that many asking for Political Asylum in Venezuela, Cuba or even Mexico. The new and very Conservative leader of France addressing our Congress had only good, positive things to say about America, Germany is working hard to become our best buddy. And wouldn’t your statement, “Everywhere around the world, everyone hates us….. ” more accurately be stated ‘Everywhere around the world, Socialists and Communists hate us’ because America (as a Nation), strips off their mask, revealing to the rest of the world just who and what they are?”

    As with the components of the old USSR, it boils down to Control. Not just control but total, absolute control of each and every aspect of citizen’s lives. The Jackbooted thugs of Hitler’s Gestapo, the KGB of the Communist USSR this is what the Liberals in America want this country America aka “North Cuba” to become. They seem to see themselves as being above all of this. they envision themselves as holders of all the top slots in government so that none of what they propose will in any affect themselves or their lifestyles.

    No, to the contrary, it’s the people from other countries that are risking their lives, every day after day after day after day, to illegally enter the United States. They leave behind most everything and even pay huge sums of money for help in being smuggled into the United States.

    Did I ever tell you guys about my Uncle? He is absolutely the greatest guy anyone has ever met, everyone who knows him is very envious of him. But his kids are getting all messed up, they have forsaken the Lord and refuse to acknowledge that everything that made my Uncle the greatest guy is the blessings of God.
    Now many of them are convinced that if they totally dissassociate with God that the whole world will love them and their problems will all be behind them.
    Please pray for my Uncle Sam, it has really been difficult for him for quite a long time now. If you see him, let him know how much you love him. Thanks guys, we are really all he has left these days.

    MKK Re#42: “That’s the same reason the Clinton campaign had to let [the dog 'Buddy'] go too.”

    First Dog Buddy, like so many spent Clinton buddies, committed suicide shortly after he stopped being an asset. First Cat Socks, the beloved kitten Mrs. Clinton saved from poverty, homelessness or worse, somehow survived separation from direct Clinton control once his position as “part of the family” was outsourced, but his recent return to the headlines could spell “killer hairball” for the hapless feline, who may soon experience the full implications of “cradle to grave” Hillarycare.

    An Scottish farmer walking through his field, noticed a man drinking out of his pond.
    The farmer shouted: ‘Paid a yfed a dwr, maer gwerthin wedi cachu un a for.’
    (Which in Gaelic means: ‘Don’t drink the water, the cows have peed in it.’ )
    The man shouted back: ‘I’m a Muslim- I don’t understand. Please speak in English.’
    The farmer shouted back: ‘Use two hands.’

    The Veteran

    For every hero on the stage
    On parade or in the grave
    With medals pinned and glory flags unfurled
    The humble serviceman by scores
    Packs the caissons, Guards the doors
    Sails sea and sky across the troubled world

    Comrades in arms they share the call
    Who stepped across that line for all
    Knowing well that fate might call their name
    They crossed that sword mark in the dust
    For freedoms sake and God they trust
    And did it not for fortunes gold or fame

    So on Remembrance Day give thanks
    To veterans past and current ranks
    And Praise Eternal God that they were there
    Oh quiet heroes, every one
    Without your hand, naught would be won
    Pray our acclaim, the purest badge you wear

    Beto Ochoa is a Southern Democrat with deep Texas roots. If he is your typical Donk moonbat, he certainly was writing out-of-character. However, in this case he clearly rose above the sea of kool-aid in which the Demoncrat Party presently swims to pen a respectful, non-partisan poem for American veterans.

    Hollyweird prefers beheadings, dismemberments, drillings, and amputations in its films. I wouldn’t be surprised if Saw IV ends up as a training film for radical Muslim jailers. I suppose a waterboarding scene wasn’t including because it would have gotten the film an NC-17 rating.

    But then, a Republican is not a Republican anymore, It seems you here think Republicans are RINOs.

    ET, what possible motive could you have for politicizing the posting (#53) of poetry which clearly rises far above such partisanship? Do you feel a need to “defend” a Democrat Party which once, as we all know, needed no such defense but in fact demonstrated a patriotism diametrically opposed to the current Party “leadership?”

    Many of our heroes, both known and unsung, were members of that once-great Party; some of our finest Presidents and Statesmen were proud to bear that name. THAT is the Democratic Party you should defend — the one that was stolen by leftists and dragged in the mud, the one that so many today wish could be restored to the vanguard, the Democratic Party which stood for the ideals now lost somewhere between the Libertarians and the Republicans but which properly belong to what was once the truly Democratic Party.

    Don’t waste your defenses on the America-haters who now wear the name “Democrat” like a child dressed up in her mama’s clothes; use your energy and wit to bring back the hard-working, freedom-loving Democratic Party that’s been MIA since the 1960s.

  • 68 Darthmeister // Nov 12, 2007 at 4:30 pm

    Many of those veterans are members of a party that no longer exist except in name only. I was once a Democrat back in the late 1960s until the party left me. These men have been able to cultivate the ability to live with their cognitive dissonance. The Democratic Party is little more than a political cult today, that’s the kind of hold it has on people born into liberaldumb.

    As I’ve stated before, neither Harry S. Truman or Jack Kennedy would be able to be the Democratic presidential nominee today. As the Democratic Party drifts further and further left it’s becoming little different than the Communist Party.

    “Many of those veterans are members of a party that no longer exist except in name only.”

    Nonsense, those veterans exist today, and continue to serve America.

    Surely you must have a long list of Republican Veterans now serving under The War President!

    Come on Dodgealot, list them! List Colin Powell, why don’t you? How about Rummy?


  • 72 Darthmeister // Nov 12, 2007 at 5:45 pm

    Nice job ripping off the service list from the left-wing nut site awolbush, neverthink, proving once again your nothing more than a mindnumbed robot. The same list shows up at other left-wing hatesites like northcoastcafe and DailyKos.

    It’s disgusting how you leftists are willing to politicized people’s service to this country and it’s disgusting that those Donks you’ve named probably applaud the kind of political tactics partisan hacks like you employ.

    And isn’t it interesting how you hacks name only those Democrats who are veterans and then you name those Republicans which aren’t. Are we to assume those Republicans not named on the list at awolbush are veterans?

    So now we have more proof you get your marching orders from left-wing kooks. Figures. How about giving attribution for your self-righteous rants the next time so we don’t have to waste our time running your sources to the ground. Even the lib at screamingcentrist believes such lists only reinforces rational people’s view “of those insane liberals.”

    It’s no secret Democrats cynically recruited veterans the last two election cycles in hopes of countering Republicans on the Iraq War. Now it looks like Republicans are going to do the same thing.

    In the U.S. Senate today there are 15 Republican Senators who are veterans starting with John McCain.

    In the 108th Congress there were 69 Republicans and 48 Democrats with military service and in the Senate there were 19 Republicans and 16 Democrats.

    So once again neverthink is revealed for the lying left-wing zealot that he is. You only speak that which supports your own insanity. Go take your lithium.

    neverthink, I gave you the blogsite where your list in all liklihood originated. At that blog there is clearly an attempt to list only those Democrats who were veterans and list those Republicans who weren’t. It was an apples and oranges comparison meant to advance the left-wing chickenhawk rant and you sucked it right up. You and your comrades on the left certainly prove the following adage: Figures don’t lie but liars figure. That’s how you’re a liar, misrepresenting the truth.

    It’s disgusting how you closet leftists turn into such bean counters and try to legitimize your point of view about the war by how many veterans happen to have a certain party affiliation. No Scrappler here has ever attempted such a disgusting partisan screed whereby the party with the most veterans should be considered the more legitimate party. Besides, service to ones country is no guarantee that one won’t fall into political miscalculation and error. Just look at how John Murtha, John Kerry et al were ranting how America can’t win in Iraq, that we’ve lost the war in Iraq and on three separate occasions whined about how a country-wide civil war was consuming Iraq … all lies.

    “Many of those veterans are members of a party that no longer exist(s) except in name only.”

    “Nonsense, those veterans exist today, and continue to serve America.”

    Huh??? Ann Coulter has it right… If Democrats (or in your case Independents) had brains, they would be Republicans.

    I know that you are ever thinking because you constantly tell us so, but the real question is do you ever comprehend? Based on most of you posts, I everthink not!!

  • 87 mindknumbed kid // Nov 12, 2007 at 8:45 pm

    If my memory serves me correctly, I looked at site that listed every candidate running for the Presidency and I believe every Democrat was on the record as being for abortion and gay marriage.
    I don’t care how you want to explain it, rationalize it, or excuse it, there is nothing Christian about those views. Call me what you want,but I wil tell you and anyone else that God is not in agreement with those views. The dems think they can pretend they are Christian, but when it comes down to ruling a naion, you cannot do it in a prosperous manner when you take your nation down the road away from the path of God’s blessings.
    There is no political solution that will be effective unless it considers the laws of God and goes in that direction. I don’t care how much you dissagree or dislike it. If this nation wants to remain it had better pay attention to the path of blessing. Will America turn around? Probably not, the jiberals are pushing us away, call it progressive thinking, call it enlightened.
    Electing a Republican is no guarantee of God’s blessings, but there isn’t any better hope in this current age.

  • 88 everthink // Nov 12, 2007 at 8:46 pm


    Those veterans exist, and they are a part of the party the DippyDumpster said no longer exists.

    Or, “I know how hard it is to put food on your family”.

    What’s the difference which site anyway? Was the report truthful?

    “BTW, neverthink, you’re still the biggest joke here. And the only thing you’re independent of is a brain and a sense of decency and honesty.”

  • 90 egospeak // Nov 12, 2007 at 9:39 pm

    ET, re:89

    Let’s try this one more time. Nobody is denying that the democrat veterans exist, or that they belong to a political organization called the Democrat party. The argument is that the party that they belong to is radically different (and not in a better way) from the party that existed 45-50 years ago (when many of them became veterans).

    They are the same in name only. The central beliefs of the Democrat party of 45-50 years ago no longer exist. That’s the point. It’s not a difficult concept to understand unless you are being contentious simply for argument sake.

    BTW, what does, “I know how hard it is to put food on your family” mean? And what does it have to do with anything we’ve been talking about?

    Then there was this cartoon which rather aptly summed it all up.

    A chihuahua about big enough to fit into a Dixie Cup maybe 1 lb. 4 oz. is faced off against this enormous Great Dane maybe 85 lbs. The chihuahua is barking and barking and barking really cussing the bigger dog out.

    The Great Dane looks down to evaluate the threat, gets a whiff of the little stinking varmit and sneezes! Of course, like a straw in a tornado, the little chihuahua disappears.

    The last segment shows Marmaduke with a question mark over his head trying to figure out what had become of his tormentor?

    When e.t. comes around barking and barking and barking - all I can think of is the fun of being around when Darthmeister sneezes!

  • 93 Darthmeister // Nov 13, 2007 at 9:27 am

    Neverthink is worried about “the truth”? Buwahahahahaha!

    The truth is, neverthink, the left-wing blognuts only published the list of Democrats who were veterans without publishing the list of Republicans who were. Anyone who is truly interested in “the truth” and is going to make a big deal about what legislators or party leaders served in the military would have published BOTH lists. Your demands for us to produce a list of Republicans who served demonstrates the utter dishonesty of the leftist nutroots who ignored the fact that as of 2006 there were more Republican veterans in both the House and the Senate and more veterans who served on President Bush’s foreign policy staff than did Bill Clinton’s.

    So, you dimwitted twit, you were involved in half-truths, which coming from leftist hacks like you and your comrades at the leftist blogs is as good as an outright lie.

    Remember what we’ve said about the liberal media, sometimes its not necessarily the spin they put on the news they report but rather what they don’t report which biases the story … and it happens hundreds of times a day. The liberal media chooses what it decides will be the news of the day and you’ve just demonstrated to everyone who reads this blog how leftist bloggers are no different than the liberal media … in fact they’re worst.

    BTW, if you want to make apples vs. apples comparison, let’s compare President Bush’s domestic and foreign policy team with that of the draft dodger Bill Clinton’s policy team:

    Here are the people who served in the American military under President Bush

    Colin Powell, Secretary of State
    US Army, 35-year career, Vietnam, rose to the rank of 4-star general.

    Richard Armitage, Deputy Secretary of State
    U.S. Navy, Naval Academy, 3 combat tours in Vietnam.

    Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense
    U.S. Navy, 1954-57, pilot

    Robert Gates, CIA Director … Lieutenant in the United States Air Force for the Minuteman ICBM missile wing stationed at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri.

    Tom Ridge, Director Homeland Security
    U.S. Army, Vietnam, Bronze Star for Valor.

    Condoleeza Rice, Secretary of State and National Security Advisor - DID NOT SERVE

    Here are the people who served under the draftdodger Bill Clinton:

    Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State … DID NOT SERVE

    William Cohen, Secretary of Defense … DID NOT SERVE

    John Hamre, Deputy Secretary of Defense … DID NOT SERVE

    George Tenet, CIA Director … DID NOT SERVE

    Sandy Berger, National Security Advisor … DID NOT SERVE

    As far as I am aware, the major players in Clinton’s domestic and foreign policy team had NO military service.

    Now, I’ve spoken truth to lying morons.

  • 94 Darthmeister // Nov 13, 2007 at 9:30 am

    Ooops, should read: “Here are the people who served in the military and were or are on Bush’s foreign and domestic policy team.”

    Obviously I didn’t mean they were serving in the military during the Bush Administration. All else stands.

  • 95 Darthmeister // Nov 13, 2007 at 9:42 am

    Thank you egospeak, that is exactly the point which the ranting demagogue neverthink chose to pointedly ignore. Of course there are Democratic veterans, no one is denying that, but rather it’s the old Democratic Party which no longer exists because its post-hippy leadership has driven it further and further left.

    Neverthink doesn’t give a rat’s rearend for “the truth”, he’s only interested in revealing his utter ignorance which he so spectacularly did by cutting and pasting the ridiculous diatribe from some left-wing blog. And it’s interesting how that garbage spread like wildfire among the left-wingnuts. You can go from one leftist blog to another and see exactly the same list in the same order, most of the time without attribution. These Pavlovian poltroons think they’re so clever in how they package their lies and it only takes dumkoffens like neverthink to suck it up like so much poisoned kool-aid to spew it everywhere else. And then he invokes his faux concern “for the truth” by pleading with us to prove his “facts” wrong, and when we do prove him wrong he becomes stuck and stupid and then insults us all the more! What hubris!

    Colin Powell is no supporter of this administration.

    He correctly believes he was lied to, and that his reputation, and service to America was disgracefully used when he was asked to presented false information to the UN preceding our preemptive on Iraq. Unknown to him, most the information was he presented was provided by a guy they then code named “Curve Ball”.

    “The Powell Doctrine” was shelved in favor of the military genius of “The Commander Guy”.

    Likewise, Richard Armitage, seeing what was done to Powell, is no supporter of this administration.

    Donald Rumsfeld, I’m proud to say, he’s no Democrat!

    Robert Gates is still inside, making the best he can of a bad situation!

    Tom Ridge,  OK, he’s yours, be proud!

    Condoleeza Rice, this female “Don Knotts”, unlike Colin Powell, doesn’t mind being used.

    It is true Bill Clinton was a “Draft Dodger”, in a war America should have dodged, I blame Lyndon Johnson! But, still he believed in diplomacy, and when he sent in our military he listened to them. He did not just shop around until he found a General who was willing to see it his way.

    Only diplomacy will finally end this war in Iraq, but, Dumbyah doesn’t believe in talkin’.

    Draft Dodger or no, he didn’t “weasel” using his daddy’s connections.

    To date, dumblethink, you haven’t provided us with one shred of evidence that you’re trying to honestly understand what I or anyone else here is saying. Already you’ve twisted my salient points in order to serve that darkness which fogs that ever-lying mind of yours.

    In case you haven’t consulted your leftist playbook lately, your side of the aisle have long whined that George W. only surrounds himself with “chickenhawks” and “yes-men”.

    So when its pointed out it was Bill “Balkans Quagmire” Clinton who surrounded himself with chickenhawks concerning foreign policy and not George W. (and you are thus proven wrong), you then go into default mode whining that some of the Republican military veterans in George W’s administration were “no supporter of his”. You laughably run afoul of your side’s second rant, that being Bush supposedly surrounds himself with “yes-men”. Well, duh, you can’t have it both ways!!! So let me get this straight, if someone inside the administration supports Bush then he/she is a “yes-man”, if they disagree with Bush from time-to-time, they are “no supporters of his.” You’ve certainly got both sides of the issue covered, don’t ya? Mercy!

    As to George Tenet, given the utter failure of the CIA to get its intelligence act together under his leadership with respect to Iraqi WMD stockpiles, yeah in hindsight George W. should have canned him on inaugural day 2001 for simply being a Democrat chickenhawk, an incompetent one at that. But in a show of bipartisanship (which you are clearly spitting on now) by “reaching across the aisle” W. kept a significant number of Clinton’s appointees in the CIA, the State Department and the Justice Department. To do otherwise probably would have brought the wrath of the Washington Democratic establishment and the liberal media down on Bush for “trying to establish an echo chamber” when W was trying to create a “new tone” of bi-partisan cooperation. In hindsight Bush should have cleaned house. The fact George Tenet is a liberal Democrat “chickenhawk” is apparently irrelevant to you because now the overriding issue is he served under George W. after first having been appointed by Billy Clinton!

    So now you blame Bush for suffering chickenhawk Democrats on his watch and trying to be bipartisan in his praise of people serving in difficult positions where there is a lot of gray to sift through … and there is a lot of gray in the intelligence business. Again, you’re triangulating just to push an argument.

    As to the point about William Cohen. Of course he’s a Republican but the fact remains he did not serve in the military AND he was appointed by the draft dodger Bill Clinton to the position of Secretary of Defense. William Cohen did not at any point serve under George W. Now if it had been the case Cohen was a military veteran and I were to have pointed that out, you probably would have whined that he served under Bill Clinton and not George W and therefore he is irrelevant to your “argument” about the lack of Republican veterans in Congress or the Bush Administration! It’s your MO so don’t blame me.

    In my list I was comparing the two administrations and the chickenhawk phenomenon you pathologically rant about. I thought it relevant not to only compare party affiliation but also the management styles of Democrats and Republicans - Bill Clinton being the only Democrat example for the last twenty-seven years. But obviously you chose to ignore this legitimate nuance because you’re committed to being stuck on stupid. I guess in the future I’ll have to spell out such significant nuances in neon lights for braindead hacks like you.

    So the way I see it, the Republican are in the lead.
    But if every person in office had an “R” after their name and they decided to hand the national rudder over to some radical terrorist and supported the deportation of God, we would not give them an ounce of support. But on the other side it doesn’t seem to matter, as long as they promise goodies to all their subjects.

    Jesus said “the world” hated Him and “they” will hate you too.

    So, it figures that if you aren’t being hated, then, by definition you must be doing something wrong.

    It seems that we are to be at war with the world. Too often I’m afraid we try our best to be buddies with the world. We then spend precious time dissing the folks in the church down the street. “Because they don’t do it like we do.”

    We sing “The Battle Hymn Of The Republic” and “Onward Christian Soldiers”. soldiers in “The Army of the Lord” but we never fight anybody but ourselves.

    Kinda like having a membership in the local gym and yet never going to work out.

    “Matt. 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
    Matt. 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
    Matt. 10:36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
    Matt. 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

    The fruit of a peach tree is………..peaches!
    The fruit of an apple tree is………..apples!
    The fruit of a Christian is………….Christians!

    Pastors, Preachers are given one prime responsibility - to equip the Christians in the church to go out into the world and make disciples.

    Eph. 4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;

    Anybody who places anyone or anything ahead of Christ should examine himself to determine whether or not he is, in fact, a member of the body of Christ.

    John 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    Anyone who places anyone or anything ahead of the Word of God, should be especially careful to examine himself…….very, very carefully.

    Now e.t. you could have found this yourself if you could locate a copy of the Bible - it’s no secret and you needn’t ask mnk, me or anyone else, it’s all laid out in black and white for you to read.

    “No one is completely useless who can serve as a bad example.” Don’t be so hard on yourself.

    I didn’t ask for an answer, I asked for his answer.

    But, since you know, which is it, “yes”, or “no”?

    I know Fred; give me an Oliver B. Green answer! You remember him don’t you?

    You know Fred, I said I attended Moody for a time; but I didn’t say that it was my last stop.

    John 16:13,
    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth.
    Why not access the Spirit and find the truth on your own? It’s easy.
    What about the Muslims, haven’t you heard that we all worship the same God, just some have different names for him, are Muslims Christians?

    I like your tone much better.

    Regards right back at you!

    So, in a word what do you think?

  • 136 everthink // Nov 13, 2007 at 11:57 pm


    When I was a conservative, those I associated with disapproved of FDR and his “New Deal” as strenuously as those here, now disapprove of The Democrat Party. The New Deal began about 80 years ago.

    The principles seem similar; so, when do you think the Democrats changed?

    e.t. I gave you the answer, are you illerate? The answer is both “Yes” and “No” There is:
    Northern Baptist
    Southern Baptist
    Missionary Baptist
    Freewill Baptist
    Reformed Baptist
    General Associaton of Regular Baptist
    Hardshell Baptist
    etc., etc., etc.
    and the list goes on…..

    In each of these churches there are Christians - there are also “church goers” who are not Christians. Some of these non-Christians go because their spouse goes, some because “It’s good for business”, some to find a girlfriend or boyfriend, soome out of habit (their parents got them started), some to maintain acceptance in their community, some to bemember of a “social club”, and some for a combination of these or other reasons.

    They may be “Church members” but they aren’t Christian.

    Romns 6:4 says that without a change in lifestyle, they’re all smoke and mirrors.

    Are Catholics Christian? some are, some aren’t. being a Catholic doesn’t make one a Christian like being a Baptist doesn’t make one a Christian. accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour does make one a Christian.

    God’s not all that interested in what’s tacked over the door of the building you enter - but He is real serious about what’s in your heart.

    Anyone who thinks that being a member of this, that or any Church will save them, just proves that satan has been successful in their life.

    Are Catholics Christian? - some are, not because they’re Catholic - but because they have asked Christ into their life. Nothing and no one is ahead of Jesus. No Nun, Brother, Priest, Bishop, Cardinal, Pope or Church Tradition is ahead of Jesus, The Word.

    “e.t. I gave you the answer, are you illerate? The answer is both “Yes” and “No””.

    H.R. No not really, as you see I can still somehow type out a question that brings out the worst in you!

    Beyond your usual rude introduction, you have answered very well!

    From your answer may I conclude one who opposes “Pat” Robertson, or the views of the late Jerry Falwell, or those of Charles Dobson can still be a Christian?

  • 139 everthink // Nov 14, 2007 at 11:03 am


    My question in 137 is unclear. I should have said: The principles seem similar to those of today; so, when do you think the Democrats changed?
