Looks like after all the posts etc. we’re both gonna be bummed...
And drain their bubble baths...
They both like the latter a bit too much for my taste, but I stopped listening to Hannity when he was into the NY Italian sausage last year. Not that there’s anything wrong with that...
Maybe once Willard’s hopes are finally dashed, his botnet will stop DDOSing the damn site...it’s been slow as all hell for days.
Must cost them a fortune in BW overages.
We may have all been wasting our collective time trying to save McCain’s sorry butt for the November election. Leave it to him to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Yeah, what in the blue flock is up with the slowdown ? I have a fast cable connection and I don’t remember using AOL dial-up when it was dragging this bad. If it’s this bad now, Election Night will be a farking fiasco and totally crashed.
From my experiences with my own servers, the traceroutes look like it's under a DOS of some kind, but one can't know definitively from here.
You'd think they'd have blocked it off by now though. Maybe Jim can shed some light.
I will be SO happy if it’s not Bombney.
This is a complete disaster pick. just think of the headlines and the new direction this could have all gone if he had picked Palin. A strong women conservative. Instead he picks a boring nobody from an upper mid west state.
Hello President Obama.
I have heard the same thing with Palin which would make the Dems heads explode — Governor and a woman! My sources said who it wasn’t going to be and left the rest to guess.
Schtick's old, Fred.
"Pawlenty will not carry MI or probably MN."
"Romney can carry MI"
No proof of that whatsoever. No member of his family has won a majority of the vote for an office there in 42 years. His mother lost in the single greatest landslide for a Republican for a U.S. Senate seat in Michigan history.
"and he can also handle Biden in the debates."
What fun. They can one up each other in the bullcrap department. They're both masters. The poor audience will be buried alive.
Pawlenty seems too be a decent guy, but not a political heavyweight. I'm concerned about how he will fare against Biden.
McCain should pick someone who is perceived as being capable immediately assuming the role of POTUS in the event he cannot finish his term of office, which at his age is a greater concern than it will be with Obama.
To be honest, Pawlenty doesn't strike me as someone ready to be POTUS. Of course, Obama doesn't seem ready to be POTUS either and there is the problem with picking Pawlenty, or Palin or Cantor for that matter. They may be good up and coming conservatives, but are they ready for the immense responsibilities and challenges of being President at this stage of their careers?
If you are going to declare Obama unfit for office because he lacks the experience to be President you can't pick a young VP who also lacks enough experience for that position.
Romney would be the better choice.
See, now, you just hate LSD members. Yup, yessirrebob.
Nevermind. Muh bad.
Hmmm... Romney making a little comeback on InTrade.
Pawlenty dropping like a rock on InTrade. It ain’t gonna be him. Numbers don’t add up - someone else must be getting some action!
I have been told it is not Romney, Ridge, or LIEberman earlier this evening but I also think it is not going to be Pawlenty from info received not too long ago. My guess is Palin or Cantor now. A lot of disinformation being spread but my money is on Palin until the next email.
I’m with you...that’s where my money would be. Honestly, that’s what I hope he does too. It just feels right.
Huckabee not going to Dayton per FOX. Does that point to Romney?? Or not??
“I think that Lieberman is being used as a decoy so that conservatives will swallow someone like Pawlenty.”
I believe you are right.
Of course, point that out to his unhinged supporters that you’re judging him as an individual and nothing more and they’ll still call you anti-Mormon... no diff than “You’re racist if you don’t support Obie.” All a big steaming pile...
Darnit Nana!! You had me googling “Michelle Steele” hoping to see a hottie! ;)
Huck’s attacks on Romney over the last few days leads one to believe that he thinks its going to be Romney.
Paelenty's position is that of a liberal RINO bum.
I take offense at that comment. I married a Mormon and never found her to be bigoted in any way.
“From what I can tell about Sean Hannity, he prefers to wrap his mouth around a nice rare Mormon sausage.”
You know, I can come up with no legitimate reason why you haven’t been banned for your gross vulgarities on Freeper threads. You have such a low class mentality that you inflict on others. That was a disgusting thing to say about both Sean Hannity and Mitt Romney. Filth, that’s what you seem to thrive on. Come on moderator, nip this in the bud before he multiplies his postings.
The Rats would just accuse McCain of pandering (something THEY never do).
And let me hasten to add I wasn't any more accurate on my veep predictions than you were.
I only made a prediction on the Dem side for VP, but it wasn’t a definitive one (that being the KS Governor). The choice of Biden was astonishingly stupid. Had he picked Gilligan-Sebelius, it would’ve taken the luster off McCain’s pick (and made McCain look desperate — indeed, KGS might’ve even curtailed Palin being picked). For the GOP side, I was hoping McCain would go for one of our top three most experienced Governors, but he chose Palin, one of our up-and-comers, instead, and fortunately for McCain, not a divisive choice.
McCain, of course, should be able to win now, but the race isn’t over, yet, and he still has a habit of making lots of gaffes. I’d put Palin out front and center more than himself. She combines looks, a pleasant personality AND an air of authority, too. If McCain wins, she may well find herself as President in less than 4 years, which I give better than 50% odds on.
I predicted Sebelius and Romney, and was wrong on both counts.
Fortunately you were wrong about the latter and that McCain was smart enough to have not chosen Slick Willard, but unfortunately for Obama, he was wrong not to have picked the former.
