    Is it as blue as, say, Carrboro? Just out of curiosity.

    Come down here and say that.

    Mind you, you'll just embarrass yourself again, but if you actually believe that drivel, come down here and say it to our faces.

    We probably won't laugh more than five minutes, honest. Well, the black folks might - that last bit was overly stupid. They wouldn't stay here if that garbage were true.

    War ended 155 years ago. Jim Crow ended more than 60 years ago. But haters gotta hate, I suppose. Pity you haven't looked in a mirror to say that crap - maybe you'd realize your the one filled with hate.

    Eisenhower was a middle of the roader, a moderate, who in this modern day republican party would be considered a Rino. Even Reagan would be a Rino by todays republian standards. Nixon, the "I am not a crook" crook, he'd probably fit right in.

    In other words, today's nutty out-of-touch Democrats would be screaming "RIGHT WING EXTREMIST".

    The South is overwhelmingly conservative - and the South, conservative and liberal, has a positive view of Lincoln.

    Stop sticking your foot in your mouth and it won't hurt so much getting it back out.

    True, Clinton threw open the door, but Nixon cracked it open.

    I don't know where you are accessing this "today's Republican standard". No matter who the subject is, there is always someone further to the right or left to call them a RINO or a DINO. Myself being a Libertarian, I'll let your party decide who is/is not Republican enough.

    From my perspective, based on performance as Commander in Chief, Eisenhower was more conservative than any of his successors from either party.

    I DO remember that's one of the reasons my Dad first began thinking about voting Republican!
    IMO, Calvin Coolidge was probably the most conservative of any WH occupant. I'm not sure a succeeding president could be so hands-off as he was, as things are so much more complicated today.
