Sarah Palin: Time To Change The Game on The Game Changer
In Game Change, the HBO movie about the 2008 presidential campaign that airs on March 10, Julianne Moore portrays former Vice President Sarah Palin as blindly ambitious, emotionally unstable and intellectually unfit for national office.

Game Change: Everything Old is Old Again
by Ethan Alter March 11, 2012 6:00 AM I finally got around to reading Game Change, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's much buzzed-about recounting of the chaotic 2008 Presidential campaign, well after all the hype surrounding the book had died down.

Foul trouble becomes game-changer for UNC, Wolfpack
By Kelly Parsons | The Daily Tar Heel ATLANTA — When North Carolina's usual starting forward John Henson walked out onto the court at the Philips Arena in a suit for UNC's ACC semifinal game against NC State on Saturday, it was clear the Tar Heels ...

Sarah Palin returns to centre stage in HBO's Game Change
There's a moment early on in HBO's new movie on the 2008 presidential election, Game Change, in which Sarah Palin is being whisked away from the relative obscurity of her governor's mansion in Alaska to become John McCain's presidential running mate.

Is the $41000 0baamaVolt an auto market game changer? by Jimmbbo Q: Changing from a FREE MARKET of auto choices to one where GOVERNMENT kickbacks (using OUR tax dollars) decide what gets sold. When the 0baamaVolt fails to sell, will barry GIVE them away to his union supporters? Or will barry have his EPA BAN the internal combustion engine as a "threat to human beings" in TRUE tyrannical style?

what exactly is a game changer ? by Q: as I was reading articles on the new york state's property tax cap, "Cuomo’s support was a game changer." was in my way. and does it mean that he wants to shift the position, that previousely he was against the tax cap, but now he is for tax cap? for your reference, http://blogs.forbes.com/leonardburman/2011/05/25/property-tax-caps-and-local-governance/

A: When something or someone influences the outcome of anything it is called a game changer, goes to sports competition where someone scores points it changes the game and influences the outcome, in the reference you gave Cuomo's support changed the original expected outcome.}{

Will Paul Ryan's 2012 budget plan be a game-changer for Republicans? If so, why or why not? What say you? by Caribou "QUIT" Barbie™ Q: A) Yes - It will finally give them a concrete alternative to rally around. B) No - It is a hugely controversial plan that will alienate voters and fail to unify the party. C) Maybe - If the House passes it, it will put the ball in Senate Democrats' court. D) I'm not sure. Submit Vote

A: I'd say B or C Ryan is a fiscal conservative and the majority of the republican party likes their pork (even when they complain about it) Ryan is also rather soft on the wealthiest of Americans and places more of a burden on the poor. Basically I think combining his plan with a return to the older tax rates (more successful tax rates I might add) we could actually get a leg up on the deficit.

What is a game changer? by banaie dudette Q: So today I went to go visit my friend and I got to sit in her class and I could over hear the guys around us calling me a game changer... What does that mean?

A: I believe a game changer is something that changes the game. When Mario consumes a mushroom... that shit changes the game!

Hey right wingers what do you think of Bush manipulating the threat level for his game changer in 04? by Hybrid Moments Q: The news this morning that former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge believed that President Bush and his top advisers manipulated the terror threat alert system for their political gain is really -- and it ought to be -- a major story. http://politics.theatlantic.com/2009/08/dont_cry_for_tom_ridge.php

A: Key word, "Believed".

Do you think Clinton now regrets calling North Carolina a "game changer" last week? by That Marvelous Ape Q: "This primary election on Tuesday is a game changer. This is going to make a huge difference in what happens going forward. The entire country – probably even a lot of the world is looking to see what North Carolina decides." http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/05/clinton-tuesday.html

If Obama's speech is going to be such a game changer, why wait so long to give it? by Hell Hath No Fury at All Q: Why didn't he give it a few weeks ago?

A: Since Obama has nothing new to say, how he says it is everything. Obama's long-awaited jobs plan is, unfortunately, yet another economic plan based on smoke and mirrors. The hole in Obama's plan is so big Joe Plumber could drive his truck through it. And for anyone who has any doubts, don't be misled into thinking this was a jobs speech: this was a campaign speech through and through. Here's how you know: *Obama is a Democrat *He promised everything *He provided a fantasy plan to pay for it *He's blaming the opposition in advance for anything that goes wrong And don't expect Obama to change course any time soon: to do that would be to admit he was wrong and his policies have cost future generations and us dearly, with an apology in order. Not likely from a guy who consistently blames everyone else for his failures. o_O

McCain just lost the election, was this a game changer for McCain? by james T Q: McCain just lost the election, was this a game changer for McCain

A: He's been so snarky this entire debate. Republicans love it, but I'm sure it doesn't play well with independents.

If it's between Joe Biden, Evan Bayh, and Hillary Clinton, which one would be a game changer for Obama? ? by Chris256_98 Q: I think Obama's VP will either be Joe Biden or Evan Bayh. Both help Obama by adding experience, and could help with white Indendependent voters. But would either really be a game changer. Hillary Clinton has negetives and positives, but it seems to me she'd bring more attension and excitement than either of those white men. What do you think?

who is a bigger potential game changer in the nba between Tyler Hansbrough and Michael Beasley? by alllstar05 Q: feel free to write any other player in

A: What makes Hansbrough a special player is the energy and passion he brings to the game. However, i dont think he posesses the talent that beasley has. I see hansborough as a great college player who will succeed in the NBA as a good role player. I see beasley as a poetential all-star in the NBA.

Is it a game changer, while dining out, that a restaurant is vegetarian or vegan friendly? by Q:

A: Definately - in my family I am vegetarian and my sister-in-law is also vegetarian. Therefore there has to be at least one thing on the menu vegetarian, but obviously the more the better. However, all families/couples have certain things that dictate where they go: eg The grandad that will only eat Scampi and Chips The partner that won't eat Chinese food There has to be simple kids menu choices...if its too fussy they will just want a bowl of chips The drunken uncle that will only go somewhere that serves alcohol The disabled cousin that needs easy parking and ramp access So I guess we vegetarians are just another awkward entry to the list :)

what was the song playing for the nomenees for the game changer award? by Q: it sounded good, what was it called

A: There were two songs in the 'Game Changer of the year' video: 1 - "We Are Young" by Fun (download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?ez5top2o6gwbox6) 2 - "Hated you from Hello" by Downplay (download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?s8k53wy1ky4n6ah)

What does it mean when your boyfriend says you are a "game changer" ? by Q:

A: something to do with being a player. The player is playing the game, but you change the game therefore you're the game-changer who brings in new rules. It basically means that he's serious about you or sees you as a potential serious girlfriend. Thats my interpretation anyway

How to be a game changer? by Innovative Athletes Q: This is a good 10 minute video for all young basketball players looking to take their game to the next level. The game changing level. www.innovativeathletes.com

A: A game changer doesn't always have to shoot. They can do little things like stealing the ball or getting rebounds. Both Kobe and Leborn are great game changers with no doubt. When the game is on the line, little things change the game. Let me think... sometimes a star player would have to a bad shooting night. But they can still do little things to change the direction of the game. To be a game changer, you can't give up

If president Bush dies before the election will that be a game changer? by Tipper Q:

A: I think not as the damage from the character assassination campaign has already been done and the mind set cast. People would see a President Cheney as more of the same. I can see one scenario where it could make a difference, though. If the news of President Bush's death cause Cheney to die from a heart attack, then, even in the short time left, president Pelosi would be sure to make such a mess of things that a new Republican revolution would likely occur.

Is the Obama endorsement by the ambulance chaser really a game changer, or a joke? by Charlton Heston's Ghost Q: ...CHG...

A: Please put my check in the Joke box.

was PA really a game changer for Hillary or just media spin? by bitter/ flag pins Q: do you think hillary is just postponing the innevitible when she can't over come obama lead in poplar votes or delegates .

A: you and i know that PA changed nothing. it's just hillary and the media SPIN on the outcome. hillary got 84 delegates, obama got 74. that's only a net gain of 10 delegates for hillary. obama's well-spent money stopped her dead in her tracks. obama still leads on all fronts. 2 weeks from now, he will wipe out all of her so-called gains, just like he did when she "won" the TX primary, RI and OH. and for those who can't do math like hillary, she spent $4.8 millions dollar and obama spent $11.2 millions. does that sound like he outspent her 3 to 1? NOT! it's more like 2 to 1, so please stop parroting more of hillary's LIES out here.

Can anyone predict what kind of game changer mccain might get? by kim carsons and the wild fruits Q: What is the most probable game changer that will help mccain? please check out this video to help my friend too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFxnzuJWvH0

A: On a diplomatic mission to Pakistan, McCain will personally capture Bin Laden, hog tie him, and then bring him in on a trailer.

Why is it considered a game changer when Iran gets a nuclear bomb? by Q:

A: Because Iran is presently ruled by a nut job. This guy has avowed to wipe America and Israel off the face of the map. Also, other states around Iran do not have nuclear capability and Iran will definitely use the bomb to bully the entire Mid-East. It can in no way be deemed a good thing that Iran is armed with nuclear weapons. It would not surprise me a bit to see either Israel or America bomb Iran's nuclear facilities into oblivion to hold them off for another ten years.

Is Kobe irrelevant & no longer a marquee player game changer? by Q: Lebron,Wade,Nowitzki,Rose,Durant,Zebo all these marquee players have helped their teams win in this yrs playoffs. Kobe at this stage of his career is he irrelevant? Is he just an "alleged" marquee player because of his past?

A: LeBron, Dirk, Wade, and Chris Paul are all better players than Kobe. Kobe is still very good but he's been overrated as a clutch performer for his entire career. His game winning shot % is 25% and lowest amongst star players. Besides scoring he doesn't make people better the way those players I named do. In career elimination games he is putting up 21.7ppg on 40%fg. He is a top 10 player but barely a top 5 player. Both Paul and Nowitzki outplayed him in these playoffs and Kobe got a 1st team all NBA defensive award for his reputation and not his actual defense. Like I said he's great, but not as good as those guys.

Is there a "sleeper" candidate who could be a game changer in the 2012 Presidential election? by coldfuse Q: Someone like General David Petraeus? Perhaps someone else?

A: Dr. Tom Campbell would be an excellent sleeper candidate for President in 2012. Dr. Campbell is a Republican and is a very strong Fiscal Conservative. Dr. Campbell graduated from Harvard Law School with highest honors and was selected as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Byron white. Also Dr. Campbell has a PhD in economics from The University of Chicago. The Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman was his Thesis advisor. Dr. Campbell also served in the Reagan Administration. Dr. Tom Campbell was also the youngest Professor to receive Tenure at Stanford University Law School. Dr. Campbell teaches Constitutional Law, Antitrust Law and International Trade Law. Dr. Campbell has served five terms in Congress and would be an excellent choice for the Republican nomination for President in 2012.

Was James Harrisons int TD the biggest game changer in SB history? by Skinsfan4life21 Q: If not can you think of another play that has turned the SB around. Please don't say the Giants and Tyree i don't wanna hear about last years SB lets have some fun

A: Yes, because Arizona would have scored. That was Warner's and Hightower's fault. If Hightower didn't move to block, Harrison would've been guarding him. Warner just assumed Harrison was blitzing and Boldin would be open. Great play by Harrison, if he didn't score it would've went straight to OT, and Arizona would be the champs. In my opinion, Holmes deserved the MVP because he had so many yards after the catch, at least it looked that way. I believed that if Holmes had only 1-5 catches (instead of 9) then Harrison would've been the Super Bowl XLIII MVP, to go along with being the Defensive Player of the Year

What does it mean to be a 'game changer' ? by dsfds Q: So today I started meeting the guy I'm seeing, his friends and the second I walked into one of his buddies his first words were "So this is the game changer" I was really confused, and I'd loooove to know what he meant. Please help. Thank you

Can Tanks Be a Game Changer in Afghanistan? by Ranger4402 Q: I saw on the news last week our first allotment of tanks arrived in Afghanistan. I thought we always had tanks from day one. Can Tanks make a difference in this conflict? If I were Taliban and thinking of rushing a Firebase then I probably would not do that if it has tanks.

A: The Danes (I think) have had some tanks in Afghanistan since 2002, none of the big players have any (US, UK, Canada) Having been to Afghanistan I can confirm that tanks will be next to useless in most areas on account of the following 1) only a few roads in the entire country with a hard top the rest are narrow tracks which makes transporting tanks around almost impossible, the hard top roads are not much use for tanks as they pass though a large number of heavily built up towns (real dangerous for a tank) add to that these roads constantly have huge IED's placed around them, not cool, not cool at all 2) Eastern Afghanistan is basically solid mountains, no roads, just dirt tracks up and down the sides of mountains, again a non starter 3) Southern Afghanistan is flatter and most desert like, BUT this is an illusion, the whole area is crisscrossed by dry river beds, Wadis, Canals, creeks, again tanks can't do it, and even if they hit a good trail the dust cloud they will kick up will be seen 10 miles away, everyone will be either long gone before they arrive or will have had plenty of time to organise a reception plus it also has areas of intense vegetation, and I mean intense! maize fields with crops 10 feet high that you can't see more than 2 feet in any direction in, difficult enough for an infantryman using all his senses, suicide for a tank to enter, everyone in that field will know were the tank is, the tank crew will not see anyone, and there is no chance of a tank fitting down an Afghan village street, it may get a few yards in but it won't get out again. and of course you have the problem throughout the whole country of russian minefields, left over from the last war, Russian landmines don't play - those things were designed during the cold war to hurt M1's and the other nato MBT's and even the russians don't know where these minefields are Undoubtedly Tanks can have some use out there, but they will only be secondary roles, guarding bases, and checkpoints, perhaps some support fire in certain favourable circumstances (i.e assuming the tali are silly enough to do something while one is around) overall it is an awful lot of effort getting them there for what will be a very limited return. certainly not a game changer

Is anyone else sick of the term "game-changer"? by Rollie H Q: Political candidates say a primary win is a game-changer. I just read that McCain's pick of Palin is a game-changer. At work, a resignation is a game-changer. Enough already!

A: Nope, I'm tired of hearing alot of things but this isn't one of 'em

Prediction: Gingrich blasting the media last night was an absolute game changer-agree or disagree? by Q: He bold went where no other man had gone before-and BLASTED CNN and the media elites for their negative-lopsided coverage of republicans while giving democrats a free pass on everything. I predict this will win him not only the nomination-but the presidency. His time has come-right?

A: I have been leaning towards Gingrich because I like his ideas on dealing with our problems, such as the economy, job industry, foreign policy, current tax system, health care, abortion & illegal immigration. I also liked all of the things he accomplished as House Speaker & agree with him on many other issues. One thing I admire about him is that he knows how to put somebody in their place without backing down, he`s tougher than nails & he will bring Obama to account for the horrible things he has done to our country. November is still far away for me to decide who I will vote for but so far The Newt measures quite well. Last night was a good example of what he delivers best, putting somebody in their place,

In your opinion does TCU's win over Wisconsin mean a game changer for BCS qualifications? by [email protected] Q: Do you think it would be better for Big Ten teams to play Boise, Utah and TCU in the early part of the season? Or maybe throw in an SEC team for good measure in the middle of the season? The Big Ten's Bowl performance is awful. What do we do?

A: big Ten played great in the bowl season last year, this year i didnt beliee they stood a chance going into the Michigan, and michigan state game. i knew they were overmatched going in. But penn state blew that game. So they played bad this year, although they still dominated the big 12, the sec had there number. Next year theyll be ready to go again. And as for your question about teams they schedule. TCU is a good team, that was shown, but i dont think its the fact that they werent that kept them form BCS title game, noone knew how good they were, they need to schedule more games against teams of wisconsin calaber. THe Big Ten they prepare so much for playing in the snow and in cold weather games, however no bowl games are played up north in cold weather. So they need to do a better job transisoning to play teams who are used to warm conditions, and they need to space out a lot more.

Why do Republicans want people to believe everything in "Game Changer" about Democratss but not Republicans? by Mr. Wolf Q: Sarah Palin couldn't explain why North and South Korea were separate nations. She did not know what the Federal Reserve did. She also said she believed Saddam Hussein attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001

A: Ha! She actually said that about 9-11? Freaking hilarious. There is your future leader conservatives, bow down and worship the best and brightest among you!! LOL. God it's sad that people would vote her. They believe what suits them at the moment, same as always.

Is tonight going to be the game changer for the Republican politics. Is someone going to take the fall? by Q: will the field narrow today. Who do you think has most to lose tonight? Watch Newt and his attacks. The Democrat Moderators will be asking some tough questions.

A: My predictions: They all will spew venom at President Obama as usual without providing a detailed alternative solution to that which they complain about. Perry will screw up. Paul will be as usual. Should attack Romney most and Prick Santorum a bit too. Prick Santorum will be deflecting blows from Mitt and Paul. Gingrich will have daggers for Mitt. And it may backfire if he plays it wrong and Mitt plays it right. Mitt mostly will spew venom at President Obama. Huntsman is the wild card. He just may come out swinging at Mitt, Ron Paul, and Prick Santorum. ~

Do you agree with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates when he said that killing of Osama is a Game Changer? by Q: He told this to the Military, will this mean that we can withdrawal from Afghanistan at a faster pace now?

A: I'm not voting for Odumbo just because a group of Navy SEALS killed Osama bin Laden. If Odumbo thinks this is his ticket to reelection, he is a child.

How long will cons drop that Winston Churchill line like it's a game changer? by Q: As if we haven't heard it before, and as if it proves that conservationism is correct or something. You do realize that the quote is calling you heartless, right? Which you booed when Rick Perry said...

Who will be the Game changer in the Champions League Final? by dafgklafjkljad Q: I think it will be Rooney. We all know C.Ronaldo and Drogba will show up, but Rooney has been up and down this season, and he's coming off an injury. Another players might be the play of Lampard/ Ballack

A: John Terry. Ah the miss was priceless.

who here thinks the Garcon drop in the first quarter of the superbowl was the game changer? by Daddy Q: i still think that drop by garcon on third down was the thing that killed the colts does anyone else have any other suggestions besides the onside kick because that wasnt the colts messing up, or the interception its too obvious.

A: i think the colts coach was playing it too safe... really too damn safe!

How many People know how much of a game changer just transpired in Iran.? by polarisoris65 Q: Iran as just taken a huge step in dealing The U.S. a spanking on the battle field. Satellite guided tomahawks, Planes, bombs would be useless via Electronic warfare I think The Chinese are behind it all But it still is a Huge game changer How those talks coming between Obama and Iran The longer we wait he greater the deviation of a full blown Nuclear exchange which is inevitable with the latest developments in tech warfare

A: Iran will never listen to the U.S., or to the U.N. for that matter. The sooner people come to accept that reality, the better off we will be.

How is Punks epic shoot on WWE not nominated for Game Changer of the year? by Q: Come on really? That changed the whole year. This is ridiculous! Exactly! WWE really fucked up on this one.

A: I know right! Also how did Edge not win? This is ridiculous!!!

What will be your candidate's game changer tonight? by Kimberly Q: This question is for both republicans and democrats. Since people like to compare the two candidates and say that their last two debates were close. What will they have to do to make them stand out from the other? Its a fair question, I think.

A: Notice in the last debate that McCain rarely looked at Obama. When Obama spoke, he looked like he was off in another world. On the contrary, Obama was VERY attentive while John spoke and he gave John eye contact. When he was critiquing McCain's views, he looked directly at him. I think Obama looked more mature, stronger, and more serious about the debate. McCain looked like he was just kicking it at a buddy's house and randomly going off talking about some story about some past President or warlord... A McCain win would be rendering Obama speechless, which will not happen. Obama WILL have comebacks to everything, especially the whole Ayers topic of discussion. He is prepared and there is no way that McCain can be victorious. If anything, he'll come in even with Obama. But Obama is a better speaker. There will be no McCain victory tonight...

Shale gas is going to be a definite game changer? by Q: Since 60% of shale can be recovered by producers, in future shale gas is going to be a definite game changer says Motilal Oswal note on Oil & Gas

A: Absolutely. Shale gas has the potential to change the entire world's energy dynamic, and in turn allow industrialization of many third-world countries and developing countries. It certainly has the potential to render OPEC irrelevant. It also has the potential to make large-scale adaptation of alternative energy uneconomic, as most of that technology relies on artificial price supports to make it feasible. Adaptation of natural gas as a transportation fuel is extremely easy, and is already common in many countries in the world. There is resistance to this change in many industrialized countries, such as the US, but the cost differences are significant and the carbon dioxide output of natural gas is lower than using diesel or gasoline. The reason for this is that methane has a higher ratio of hydrogen to carbon than any other hydrocarbon, and the hydrogen burns to create water. Fuels such as gasoline, diesel, and especially coal have much more carbon in them and will emit much larger quantities of carbon dioxide per unit of energy generated. Add to that the current policy of natural gas fuel being untaxed, while gasoline and diesel are heavily taxed and the switch is likely to happen (of course the taxes will eventually be forced onto natural gas to support the government). Another major factor pushing natural gas consumption is ironically the installation of solar and wind power. For every megawatt of solar and wind energy installed, another megawatt of natural gas power generation has to be installed. Most utilities are being forced to build natural gas power plants to supplant the grid when solar and wind stop producing, which they do every day. Coal plants cannot replace that power because they cannot change their production levels quickly (they run continuously) , while natural gas fired power plants can be turned on and off as needed. The other effect that shale gas has already has is to impact dramatically the world market for Liquified Natural Gas. Because the US no longer needs any imports of natural gas, those tankers are being diverted to other countries such as Japan, and prices have dropped world wide for natural gas. That could keep oil prices in check for many years. Balance of trade in the world is strongly affected by import and export of oil and as natural gas replaces oil this will dramatically change world balance of trade and world politics. Basically shale gas represents an entire paradigm shift in geology as well. The commonly accepted idea was that as source rocks matured (a process known as catagenesis) and generated oil and gas, that the oil and gas migrated out of the source rock and was trapped by reservoir rocks and structural and stratigraphic seals. Shale gas has proven that these source rocks did not always expel the majority of the oil and gas generated inside these rocks. This means that the estimates made by the USGS and other official groups that have for years told us that "peak oil" was near, are totally wrong. In fact, there may be several trillion barrels equivalent in the world above and beyond what has been estimated using the current concepts. The idea that we have used a third of the existing oil and gas resource in the world is probably completely wrong, and is much lower than that. An example of how the USGS got this wrong, and still gets it wrong, is the North Dakota Bakken Shale. A USGS scientist named Leigh Price determined that the Bakken Shale had billions of barrels of oil in it as far back as the 1990's. His ideas were not well supported in the USGS and his work was never published. He passed away a few years ago and the only way you can get a copy of his unpublished work is to go here: http://www.eerc.und.nodak.edu/price/ The USGS finally revised its estimates upward for the Bakken (after Price was gone), but USGS is still at the low end of the range of recoverable oil suggested by Price and others who have worked on this. Shale gas will eventually change the oil supply of the world as well. The same technology is being applied to shales that are not mature enough to have generated gas, and in formations like the Eagle Ford shale there are now estimates of many billions of barrels of recoverable oil from formations that only five years ago were considered to be unproductive. There will be examples of this in almost every sedimentary basin in the world. There will likely be places in the world producing gas and oil from shales that have never produced oil and gas in the past. Countries that have the ability to fuel industry with newly discovered natural gas will change from developing countries to developed countries, and standards of living will likely be improved dramatically where this technology and science can be adapted by political systems.

Do Republicans understand that threat to force the tax increase to happen is a game changer for November? by James E Lewis AKA choteau Q: Senate Republicans and most House Republicans are threatening blocking extending the Bush tax cuts to the middle class and poor unless they get the extension for the rich. The Democrats have a bill on the table, the Republicans have nothing on the table. Do Republicans understand that threat to force the tax increase to happen is a game changer for November? Do they honestly think they can spin this as blocking a tax increase when they are FORCING a tax increase?

A: They are hoping the democrats will cave. personally I hope they do not and allow the republicans to show their true colors... willing to sacrifice the poor and middle class for the sake of the rich. To the uninformed Beck fans above me. The TEMPORARY tax cuts that Bush set in place are going to end all on their own. What we are talking about is extending the timeline on the TEMPORARY tax cuts for those making less than 250k. The republicans don't like that plan and want the TEMPORARY tax cuts to also cover the wealthier folks and are willing to fillibuster the extension ... thats right folks the democrats DO NOT have enough votes to do anything they want even though they have a solid majority because the republicans have a hissy fit like spoiled children if they don't get everything their way. I guess the democrats are going to do the same thing until the system is fixed.
