If you are referring to me, I'm just passing on what I read. Doesn't matter to me if people want to argue the point. They should argue with motortrend and the other internet sources I got it from. After all, those motortrend guys get paid to report this stuff, why would they know anything....

We'll see what happens. For years, the car mags have been reporting that Fiat was returning to the US. The only thing certain is that Alfa will be here in the US within a year regardless of the Chrysler deal with Fiat.

Wrong.

There's one island in Alaska from which Russia can be seen, and as of the time she'd made that statement, she hadn't ever been there- according to the mayor and tribal leader of the people on that island.

"They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."

The statement was ridiculed because it was to smear her, she didn't even say it.

Maybe I am missing something because that article says January 21st. It even says Jan in the URL. Irregardless, if Fiat imports the 500 then great. I still think it has more to do with Alfa. Remember that Fiat has been trying to get a partnership with a US company to import and sell their Alfa brand. They have been looking to do that long before they started talks with Chrysler. That is their 1st priority. The importing of the 500 would be a by product. They have no infrastructure here in the US.

actually, it was ridiculed because living close to another nation has little to do with foreign policy experience. She's a ******* retard, a herpe on the American psyche, and religious radical. She's like an Islamic fundamentalist, with a different wardrobe.

Living next to Mexico doesn't mean you're effected by the drug cartel, I know this.

Well that's a little different. Discussing interaction with other nations does a much better job of defining foreign policy experience than discussing proximity. Maybe she needed to provide more detail, or she could just tell us that when it comes to foreign policy "I've read all of them." lol

If she had an example of foreign policy experience, she probably should discuss it next time...and if there's a next time I'll really lose hope in America.

I should also note that killing the bridge to nowhere violated OMB circular A-122 if you want to look it up and compare to Alaskas contracting data which is available through an open records request...lol.
