    Hey Gloria, why not check out Mitt Romney's Health care plan that was instituted ALREADY in Mass.

    My bad, what was I thinking, the queen has spoken.

    Very good analysis by Mrs. Borger. Obama is telling people the truth, and it will pay off.

    So Obama is honest, Clinton has a credibility problem, and Edwards has a plan hatched by political consultants. Hmmmmm. Who should I vote for....

    Thanks for nothing, Gloria. I honestly feel patronized by your "analysis."

    Can a real analyst please provide the following:
    1. A Summary of the key points of each candidate's proposals.
    2. Whom each candidate's plan benefits most,
    3. Whom each candidate's plan benefits least,
    4. Who's plan will benefit the most number of people overall.
    5. Any foreseeable problems with each candidate's plan.
    6. The opposition's criticism.

    Thanks, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Gloria Borger called for a “moratorium on invoking the memory of Ronald Reagan” in a column about a Republican presidential debate held at a library named in his honor. This Gipper envy is clearly a stark reminder of how bias our investigavtive reporters have become lately.., especially at CBS and CNN.

    Gee, I wonder which candidate Gloria supports? As if I can't make up my own mind...

    I am a registered Republican – I considered voting for Obama....and depending on his ties to the parties left wing – if he gets the nod (and keeps Hillary away) – I still might – need some more research – we need a moderate – not a left wing...or right wing – for me...its between Obama and Rudy – Obama hasn't broken with his party enough....but...I like him
