YES!!!

Exactly!!!

And THAT is the kind of Republican that can actually WIN an election.

Republicans cannot see this, but outsiders like myself can see it plain as day.

Not really viable as the evangelicals have taken about 25% of the GOP over.

Also he has been doing "wet work" for over a decade.Well, not really doing it, but definitely overseeing it. Too much baggage. I am sure that he has a resume that makes the Iran contra look like Sunday tea after church.

Really, cause Obama effectively just fired almost everyone in the coal industry or at least numbered their days.

Maybe it's time for them to transfer to another area for work. The new jobs will be in the natural gas areas. So maybe they can transfer, or just move to another state.

Many people in my family had to up-root and move to where the next job was. In fact, I moved to another state. My neice just up-rooted her whole family and moved to Hawaii, from New England.

Many years ago I met a woman on an airplane who was moving from Wash,D.C to San Francisco to a new job. She was single and did not have any friends or family in the San fran area.. That took some guts.

We all have to adjust to changing times.

Don, that makes sense but who is he to force everyone to do that in the industry just because he decided its time?

How many other jobs are there really? Are we not in a recession? Why, does he decide to force them out in the midst of the economic climate we are in?

Perhaps he is too full of himself and is more concerned about how he looks in the history book than he is of the citizens.

Goose, I don't care that Petraeus is a Republican or not. If your in the "scope" of an FBI investigation and your in a position like his, it supposed to go right to the top. He doesn't even have to be the "focus", just the "scope". How about some accountability, it's just another cover-up.

I don't knee jerk to (R) or (D) for what party the individual belongs to, wrong is wrong. It's either approve or disapprove.That's so unlike the lefties, Obama is awesome in their (your) eyes. He's corrupt as the day is long but hey, he's yours so it's cool. Scandal after scandal and noone holds him accountable. I just don't roll that way. 

For example, GWB gave $64B to AIDS in Africa. wtf for a preventable disease — he pissed away $64B in 8 years. Ridiculous.
