As an avid television viewer and frequent latchkey child of the late ’80s and early ’90s, no controversy confused me more than the firestorm surrounding Murphy Brown’s single motherhood, fueled largely by then-vice-president Dan Quayle’s comments that the show’s choice suggested that fathers were disposable. The fact that it was ... More »

Biden candidacy would be formidable

Resolved Question: Why was it that when Dan
misspelled "potato" (even though it is correct with an "e" in old English), he was lambasted by the liberal media? He was called stupid, an imbecilic moron, uneducated, etc.
Yet when Obama not only says there are 57 or 58 states, but honors the Women of Soul by referring to Aretha Franklin's song as "R-S-P-E-C-T", the liberal media didn't bat an eye. They say he "misspoke".
A little hypocrisy?

Resolved Question: Who is the worse speller?
Dan Quayle was given a paper with the word misspelled on it and the news media had a field day with it.
Barack Obama wrote a letter to a fan and misspelled "advice" writing advise.
Barack Obama misspelled respect at a gathering at the White House for Ladies of Soul.
Barack Obama misspelled "peace" spelling it as "piece." on an infomercial trying to snooker people into signing up for Obamacare or the UNaffordable Care Act.
Barack Obama has made more gaffes than George Bush, Dan Quayle and Gerald Ford combined. The only person who has screwed up more is Joe Biden. This shows just how much power the news media have over our opinions. Dan Quayle was held in the highest respect by his fellow senators and was said to be one of the most intelligent but that spelling error which really WASN'T his error since he was given a paper with the spelling words on it and the teacher had misspelled potato.
Gerald Ford, probably the MOST athletic man ever to hold the presidency was given the reputation as a clutz by the press for a stumble that every one of has done at some time.
We were sold a bill of goods that Barack Obama was "brilliant" by the press.
If a lie is repeated often enough, many people will believe it.
