I cannot disagree with you. But the American people would reject Senator Coburn by approximately the same margin that it did Goldwater in my opinion. Coburn might even have trouble carrying OK if he ran for president. People are a lot more liberal than those on our forum care to admit.
What happened to Representative Istook? Why did he get creamed?
Actually, McConnell did back down and called off the filibuster against McCain-Feingold, having said that he would never let the measure come up for a vote.
Finally some good news for 2008!!!! I am so glad this loser is not running. It would have been just an embarrasment for him anyway. I can't believe how much he did to destroy the Senate in his tenur. Shameful!!!!!
I am really scared that it is going to be 1996 all over again. A really poor choice for President. God forbid if the Democrats pick a strong candidate. We are really going to have to look for some no-name like the Democrats did in 1992 and we did in 2000. Hopefully we will be able to do that.
Wow. The first invertebrate-eunuch Senate Majority Leader finally did something right.
Very good post.
But you are far to kind to this baboso.
duh! Frist needs to go back to bein' a sawbonze.
a lot of nopes on there....
not that I am in disagreement, but...do you believe someone not on that list will run?
You're right. Though given his moral sense thus far, I'd surely be surpised to find him very far out of that compass. It certainly seems worth the look.
They said Reagan wasn't ready for prime time too. :)
In other news, Billy Buckner will not seek to be named Red Sox Player of the Century...
I'll be happy to join you in that endeavor! Lord, have mercy on us.
As for Frist, isn't he a doctor? Let's send him to Iraq so he can start really helping people who are in desperate need of medical care.
All the frist critics on FR are disgusting and are lower than snails when compared to Bill Frist.
We have great leaders. What we have not had is great followers. Have you ever watched a football team with a great QB and a great coach but the rest were lousy players ? It is not a pretty picture.
TANCREDO/BUCHANAN. THE DREAM TICKET.
BOTTOM LINE: Democrats can have a "macacca" moment and get away with it, for Republicans, it is one strike and you are out. It is the unwritten rule of politics.
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO SAY THAT. You are an f'n RINO.
TANCREDO WILL KICK A$$ IN 2008.
True. But one mark of a great leader is to get people to follow him. Reagan managed that. The press worked against him 24/7, and tried to Watergate him with Iran/Contra, but it didn't work, because he reached out to people and persuaded them he was a good man.
It can be a fault of Democracies that they follow demagogues and populists to their ruin. After the death of Pericles, Athens followed Creon and Alcibiades, and as a result was destroyed by Sparta. It was the same Athens it was earlier, but it lacked another Pericles, someone who was both wise and persuasive.
... besides Dick Cheney I don't see anyone out there that I could reeeeely get enthusiastic about in 2008...
Condi? I know she keeps saying that she is not going to run, but I'll bet someone could convince her that her country needs her.
Vice President Cheney. He won't run and he had been demonized by the press. But I like his style and conservatarian philosophy.
I LOVE Cheney. I even named my cat after him.
It was not meant that way. We need him over there to see what is really going on.
Well I wonder if Bill Frist will ever endorse McCain? I always thought it was McCain’s “Gang of 14” that took Frist out of the president race.
Gov. Mark Sanford - maybe.
