That is still superior to McCain.
Oh, cut me a break. We need honest men and women to run for government. We don’t need grifters. We’ve got enough of those in DC already.
A guy did just that to help build the fence. It was all grift. Simcox would fit in just fine in today's corrupt DC. But the point of our efforts should be to block the grifters, not support them.
Unless there is something way worse than McCan has ever done (and I don’t think so) Chris has my support and vote.
I voted and supported McCain in the last election, but we need a new line of Republicans who will not fold to the sleazy Democrats.
Out with the old, in the with the new!
Dukakis and Dole stayed away from elected office after their defeats. Why couldn’t Kerry and McCain do likewise?
If it worked for Hilary on her first shot at running for office, then it will certainly work for Simcox.
That would be so great!!!
Does Simcox have a PAC yet? My wallet is in my hand.
Then I`ll NEVER vote for another rat wanna be again.I don`t give a crap who they are!
That’s how he won the Republican primary.
Univision: Governor, let me ask you about immigration. How many undocumented immigrants are there in Alaska?
Sarah Palin: I don’t know, I don’t know. That’s a good question.
Univision: As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported?
Sarah Palin: There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant - there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants - not only economically is that just an impossibility but that’s not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration.
Univision: Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?
Sarah Palin: No, I do not. I do not. Not total [Fred Thompson called it, “not blanket”] amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They’ve got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides.
Univision: To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?
Sarah Palin: I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country.”
Oh, this is exciting! To think we knew him when... :0)
I don't know what that means. Nor do I understand how you think it bolsters your argument.
The GOP doesn't "nominate RINOs to high office" as you put it. The democratic primary process is what selects general election candidates for district, state and national offices. If purely orthodox conservatives is what the constituency wants, then that is what the constituency will get.
As for RINOs losing in landslides, usually that's not the case. In fact, RINOs are usually located in very competitive districts and states, and that's the reason they're RINOs in the first place. It feels like you, and many other apparently, think that these moderates are where they are because of some secret cabal that's hand-selecting less-than-perfectly conservative Republicans. The moderates are moderates because they reflect the ideological make-up of their districts. It's not the other way around.
2010 is going to be an interesting year. The political landscape doesn't favor the GOP in the Senate races. The majority of races that are being contested are in states that voted for Obama last year. In addition, the GOP has at least 5, perhaps as many as six Senators that are retiring. That's not good. The majority that the DEMS currently ejoy is not filibuster-proof. But, if they can pick up a couple more, or heaven forbid 4 or 6 more seats in 2010, the agenda that Obama, Pelosi and Reid will be able to purse will be far to the left of where they are today.
Just tell me where to send him some CASH! Let's FLOOD this good man with MEGA-BUCKS! He deserves nothing less than our FULL SUPPORT!
TO HELL WITH JOHN McLAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good Riddance!!!!!!
Its something he can do, but will he?
Does Steele have the power to stop all open primaries?
No. State committees write the rules for primaries.
Thanks, thats what I thought. Was hoping that maybe the rules had changed and Steele would would be able to grab the brass ring.
