Except for McCain.
hey, he gave us a ban on internet poker /sarc
As much as I agree with Obie on alot of things he has to give up this thing of holding public office.
He wants to hold office no matter what it is. He should just let it go. Maybe if the dog catcher job opens in St Charles Il he will run for it
The Repubs have basically given the Congress and the White House to the libs through incompetence, pathetic politics, and political weakness to say the least.
For conservatives, the issue after this election will be to figure out how to combat socialism and a broken economy, which the socialists will greatly damage.
Hastert as an an agreeable buffoon.
A true RINO who tried to get along instead of sticking it to liberals.
Glad he is gone to play shuffleboard in some rest home.
Wish he had shown as much leadership and effort on immigration as he did in protecting William Jefferson’s office papers from inspection.
GOP hasn’t really lost anything. No difference between a RINO and a demorat.
Jim Oberweis is actually ZERO for six in elections. The guy couldn’t get elected dog catcher.
The ‘pubbies keep treating politics as a playground for the idle rich. The are incapable of leading ants to a picnic. Jim Oberweis raised candidate incompetency to a historic new level.
Unless they figure out that politics is a game of smash mouth and get as hard and as far to the right as possible, it will be a 43+ state, 60+ Senate seat, 350+ House seat blowout come November and the ‘pubbies can join the Whigs, Know-Nothings, and Bull Moose parties on the trash heap of history.
All that is left now is for McLame to pick Charlie Crist (Gay - FLA) as his running mate.
I don’t want to hear about “moderation,” “bipartisanship,” and “comity.” The lamestream media that keeps calling this worn out tune is in a financial death spiral, all but irrelevant, and terrified of any real Conservative. (I wish I could find a mutual fund that only invested in shorts and puts on the broadcast networks and daily newspapers.) The only time I want to see a ‘pubbie reach across the aisle is to clean someone’s clock. The only way I want to negotiate with demonRATS is with my knee in their chest and my knife at their throat.
If the ‘pubbies had any clue as how to win, earmarks would be permanently ended. William “Cold Cash” Jefferson (Bribery), Cynthia McKinney (Assault of a Federal Officer), and Sandy Berger (Treason, Theft of classified documents), would be in Federal prison for a minimum of eight years. In those inner-city precincts that consistently and magically have voter turnouts greater than 100%, there would be a construction boom on prisons to hold the felons convicted of voter fraud.
Clinton and Obama are fatally flawed as candidates. Any party serious about winning would already have gone relentlessly negative on them and just eviscerated them. Politics is not about “WIn-Win,” it is about “No Quarter.” Instead the Stupid Party is going to continue to try and “”out-Socialist the Communists” to win,
The Republican Party is nothing more than a jobs program for the brain dead.
The republican party is the most inept organization going. They had no business losing that seat in a largely republican district. In NY we just lost a senate seat in a 2:1 repub district which puts the RATS within 1 seat of getting control of the state senate. The repub leaders sit on their butts and let it happen.
Good article and thread. Thanks for posting.
