Lol, oh yeah.

A client of mine dug out a picture of his BLACK showroom condition Countach. He was close to tears as he blamed "that woman" (his wife) for having to sell it. HIGH HIGH HIGH maintenance (both she and the car ;-)

Well I'd sure as hell feel a lot better tonight with Rudy in the White House, than Obama.

Both of them are statists.

You've got to play the hand you're dealt.

Until your realize that your opponents are counting cards.

Oh good grief. Now we’ve got Romney and Giuliani supporters emerging from the woodwork and onto this thread.

Those are the resident FR libertarians AKA "Log cabinites" Or Freepers that haven't investigated studied the RINO tendencies of those two.

Rudy had nothing to do with it — the States changed their primary dates long time before that. I could say ROMNEY pushed that as he was from New England. Get your facts straight. The moved the dates up to get candidates to come into their state. Just like Oklahoma did in 2004 with some others states. A lot of states moved up their elections this time.

“After Jindal’s performance on Meet the Press last Sunday, I was very excited about him. Two days ago, he was quick-minded, aggressive & firing on all cylinders. Just eviscerating the stimulus package.”

That’s the Jindal we wanted. “Let Jindal be Jindal.”

man, what’s with these GOP handlers? Palin was really messed by up by them, too.

Romney's an excellent orator and communicator - the ONLY Presidential candidate within GOP who had a chance to beat 0bama. BUT, IMO the entire Game was rigged - from the GOP's musical chairs, to 0bama's sudden emergence given his thousands of skeletons in his closet. So where's that leave the GOP and Conservatives? DIVIDED, but that's exactly the way the Globalists want it. Jindal lacks gravitas as we saw tonight; Palin is too "conservative" for the GOP; and Romney's conservative bonafides are a question mark.

50 yrs of molding the little sheeple to their makings got us to where we are today - Slaves to the Illuminate.

IMHO, he wasn't, and I wasn't “attacking” Jindal. The Jindal we saw tonight is not the same Jindal we saw this past weekend and over the course of the last several months. I like Jindal, ALOT. I follow politics as much as most people on this board. He didn't perform well tonight. Yes, “perform”. Not the end of the world. I'm not writing him off because of this bad performance, but I'm also not going to deny is was not good. It wasn't. As I said previously, it will be forgotten by this Friday, if not by noon tomorrow. The focus will be back on Obama’s failure of a leadership tonight.

RINOs. They think they can win without Conservatives. The joke's on them. They think things will get so bad we'll come groveling back to them. They are the problem and not the solution. RINOs = self-serving in the DEMOCRAT party mold.

"Romney's an excellent orator and communicator - the ONLY Presidential candidate within GOP who had a chance to beat 0bama."

Very much agreed.

"BUT, IMO the entire Game was rigged"

That I blame on McCain.

Palin is too "conservative" for the GOP; and Romney's conservative bonafides are a question mark.

Palin is not too conservative for the GOP. Last I read she had a 90% approval rating among the R's. Even in my county, just outside Philly, I was floored by the support she got from Republicans, most of whom are not as conservative as I am. They loved her.

Romney ran on a pro-life Reagan platform, and while Governor was conservative on 24 of 26 issues, until he became pro-life which made 25. I understand why people perceive it the way you do, but in my opinion it's an inaccurate perception. Additionally, he's a Washington outsider, who's and expert on the economy.

I will be crossing my fingers for both of them. : )

“You’ve got to be kidding. Palin is more upbeat, has a better personality, and delivers a far more effective speech. Her communication skills are vastly superior to Jindal’s. There’s no comparison. Jindal has a lot of work to do if he wants to catch up to Governor Palin.”

And her state is in better shape than his state. She’s an excellent governor.

I love the logo of her political action committee, “SarahPAC”: a silhouette of Alaska superimposed right smack in the middle of a map of the U.S. With no perspective distortion, you really see how HUGE Alaska is. And she governs it.

I like Jindal; he’s very bright, and I’m sure he’s a good person. But he hasn’t become RADICALIZED yet to conservatism. Yes, he’s a conservative (bright people usually are), but he’s not yet a radical for conservativism. Sarah definitely became radicalized during the abuse she suffered (and that her family was made to suffer) at the hands of both the MSM and her own handlers within Team McCain.

She’s plotting something. She doesn’t have Reagan’s background as an actor, which gave him a lot of ease in front of cameras and audiences; but she has a natural flair for the dramatic. Even a renegade leftie like Camille Paglia referred to Palin’s “boffo”, knockout speeches and rallies. You can tell that Sarahcuda loves being on stage, working her audience (if anything, Sarah’s weakness is in finding the right “register” when she’s NOT on stage, doing a one-on-one interview; that’s when we’ve seen her trip over words. I don’t believe it’s from lack of brains, lack of preparation, or lack of a teleprompter; I think it’s from lack of an audience — a live audience, I mean — a crowd — as opposed to a merely electronic audience on the other side of the television cameras).

She’ll be back. She needs a sympathetic and dedicated handler — a conservative David Axelrod — to help with the stagemanaging; but she’ll be back.

I was VERY disappointed in Jindal. This is a time of serious measures. He was too kind and too soft.Why didnt he mention that we’re giving Gaza 900 million bucks, actually paying our enemies.Things like that insanity should have been brought out. Are we going to revolt folks or sit here and CHAT about it?Lot of people are talking but I don’t see any dates yet or locations. Million Man March against Obama anyone?

He was milquetoast, in both delivery and substance. Palin & Jindal are conservatives best hope?! That is stunning. I see 40 years in the wilderness ahead.

“I thought it was a rebuttal not a kiss obama ass speech. “

That is only a political strategy. It really doesn’t mean much. He was saying, “Cool! We did it. We elected a black guy. Now let’s move on. I’m Indian and my parents came here for the right reasons.”

What he should have done is said, “My mom was 4 1/2 months pregnant with me when she and my Dad came here ...and I have a birth certificate to prove I was born here.” lol...

I supported Rudy and I love Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal. In fact our Rudy group is supporting Sarah so sorry to burst your bubble. Rudy is not running again and neither should any other person who ran in the primary run again — they all had their faults.

Quit speaking like a knowledge person when you don’t have a clue that a lot of us that supported Rudy were very pro-life and didn’t like the other candidates especially ROMNEY who you love.

How did this thread degenerate into what you just posted is what I would like to know.

All the supporters of candidates in the 2008 primary need to get over their candidate and themselves. They all LOST and need to stay off the national stage period except to help other candidates. Our debates were terrible. I can admit our candidates stunk so why can’t others. None of them from the primaries need to run in 2012.

I didn’t get very much out of the speech, but then again I doubt I was the intended audience. It seems to have been written for mishy-mushy clueless moderates; were they attracted to the optimism? Maybe, I don’t know. Perhaps the whole thing was focus grouped too much; if he had said one thing a little fiery it might have been more memorable - but then what do I know?

He was talking about Obama’s speech style. And Krauthammer is right. Obama is in a league of his own as was Reagan.

I just don’t get what all the people rave about Obama’s skill in speaking. He grates on my nerves, and seems to be speaking down to the peasants. I see NO reason to equate him with Regan AT ALL......

The thing about Rudy is that adapts. Look, he was mayor of the most liberal city in the country. Of course, he had to make compromises to even get the job in the first place. But he has stayed loyal to the GOP all through it. As POTUS, he wouldn’t have to play to the liberals like he had to in NYC.

And even though Rudy is pro-choice, I doubt he would have lifted the ban on government funds to international organizations that fund abortions, like Obama did.

And he would have not backed down against the media, I just think he would be the most effective President, even though I don’t necessarily agree with him on everything.

San Diego? That is where his buddy’s corrupt campaign aides came from when Istook got beat 2-1 in the 2006 Governor’s race here in OK. One of them was the Foley aide BTW that made TV during the Fall of the election. One of their Father’s is one of the most corrupt consultants out of LA and the same one who tried to rig a Student President election at University of Michigan. They had no clue about Middle America and it showed.

UGGGH. Don’t get me going about the Huckster.

Do you notice he never has a real conservative come on his program - someone to his right? That wouldn’t be hard to do.

I’d like to see him debate a REAL conservative about the Global Warming fraud (he believes it), or amnesty for illegals. No, he brings on people like Ellis Hennican and TONY DANZA and lets them walk all over him.

They need to give Ann Coulter or Mark Levin a show on Fox. Now THAT would be worth watching!

"man, what’s with these GOP handlers? Palin was really messed by up by them, too."

They probably read - and believed - the poll that said the public thinks the Republicans are being "political" by not going along with Obama, and that Obama should just ignore them. So they're sucking up to Obama in response to a dubious poll.

I said both Palin and Romney would have done better than Jindal, referring to their communication skills, different from saying they should have picked Romney to deliver the oppostion's rebuttal. But then you knew that.

Jindal would have difficulty mounting more than a last ditch effort unless he weren’t running for re-election. The GOP primaries begin just 2-3 months after the Louisiana state elections.
