"The Cafferty File": Ron Paul surge?How will Pat Robertson's endorsement affect Rudy Giuliani's campaign?
Hi Jack When a religious leader endorses a presidential candidate, I will vote for someone else. Look what happened in 2000 and 2004. -Bill, Nashua, New Hampshire
Jack, King Rudy is now officially "toast" with the Independents. Just the idea of voting for anyone Pat Robertson endorses makes me want to wash my hands in Holy Water! -Jack, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
This shows that the "holier than thou" evangelicals who will vote for a pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-gay rights candidate are no more than a cult - willing to throw their "morality" to the curb to achieve a quick victory. -Luke, Knoxville, TennesseeShould the Food and Drug Administration have the power to order mandatory recalls?
Jack, What are you thinking? Giving a government agency under this administration any power to do anything can only lead to a disaster. Remember Iraq, Katrina, and now Iran. -Jack, Boynton Beach, Florida
Certainly, Jack the primary purpose of government is to protect its citizens from enemies, foreign and domestic. The protection of our children from lead poisoning falls under these categories in my book. -Harold, Anchorage, Alaska
The new consumer protection legislation is a great idea. I just hope they enforce it with more vigor than our immigration laws. -Joe, Desert Hot Springs, California
The FDA "should" be able to perform mandatory recalls but the question will be - "Will They"? With all the big lobby groups buying politicians - who's to stop them from getting into politicians pockets influencing the FDA? Jack, I don't trust a single one of them attached to this administration. -Mike, Minneapolis, MinnesotaHow effective is the government's terror watch list if it includes more than 750,000 names?
750,000 people. Garbage in, garbage out. Too many incorrect entries just makes the process of identifying the most important/dangerous people that more difficult. Essentially makes the list useless. -Bruce, Oldsmar, Florida
Jack, This huge bureaucracy called homeland security is ridiculous. The only thing they try to do is control our fear levels with silly colors. I know more about the colors of the "Starburst" candy than I do the homeland security colors - they cause more problems than they prevent. I think that Ron Paul guy wants to get rid of them... good idea. -Dan
Jack, come on, we're talking about the government. How competent can it be? You've commented on every government department, and all of them are always filled with stooges or grumpy old people. What's so different about the one heading this Terrorist Watch List?-Connor
