The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Obama Wins

    This is a huge step for the USA. Regardless of your political views, the fact that this country could look past color and elect based on values is a big thing.

    I'm just happy the freaking election is over. It has dominated American and Canadian news for far too long. That being said, I do agree it is a huge step forward.
    PRs: 655/525/645 = 1825 Total
    Meet PRs: Bench Only 525

    Voting FOR a candidate based solely on his race is just as racist as NOT voting for a candidate based solely on his race. Racism is still an issue in America but not from the people you would think.

    The US election is getting a lot of coverage in Australia. So much you'd think that Aussies could vote to

    OMG...

    This guy on CNN just called Manassas, VA "MAN-ASSES"


    All the election coverage I've watched for all these months was just worth it.

    When I was in the Middle East and Europe this summer, those people knew more about the election then American's did. Obama was the obvious preference to them.

    It's gonna be damn funny when 75% of the population regrets this election in the next few years. Should be a real fun next 4 years! Dems have a huge majority in congress now as well, man what more could you ask for!

    Not necessarily. I don't think it will make a huge difference. What a candidate says he will do is WAY different than what actually gets done. I do however feel that most of his policies will be detrimental. But, In my opinion America has been going downhill before Obama, and will continue to do so with Obama...and yes if America is ever to fall, it will be from the inside, not from an outside force. I feel pretty much the same a ncscLuke.

    Bush walked into a lot of crap when he took office and I really feel like he's **** on wayyyyyy more than he deserves.

    Would Kerry have done any better? How would he have handled 9/11?

    I think we've had enough threads to just leave it as: We disagree with policies, and thats that

    (least I hope its not about race)
