I’m declaring my candidate to be the winner right now.
We all know our preferred candidate is gonna win.
Getting ready to watch.
Patriots vs. Jaguars on at 8:00. Preseason...but it's FOOTBALL!!
I guess I'll just watch MS-DNC later to see what I missed. Do you think they will actually starve a child on stage???
It's Chargers vs Seattle here. The debate is probably more interesting.
Other preseason games tonight: Ravens vs Eagles, Broncos vs Cowboys, Cardinals vs Raiders.
Wake me up when regular season starts.
Thank you for getting thisup. I had just looked for it and refreshed the page and here you are. I hope it doesn’t turn out to be really boring. Santorum has nothing left to lose, so I expect he will be pretty fired up. Ditto Pawlenty. But the others, I sort of expect what we have already been hearing. And THAT will just tick me off.
If I hear titanium spine, five point plan, and all that stump crap, I will lose it. I can’t look at romney for very long and newt gags me. Huntsman? Why?
Huntsman is running for VEEP...(In my opinion) as is Pawlenty (Freakin RINO, and yes I am from MN and am familiar with his “work”)
Pawlenty was following McCain so closely last election,had McCain stopped short, pawlenty would have been so far up his arse, McCain would have had to open him mouth sopawlenty could see!
I REFUSE to support anyone that is that “close” to McLame!
Special report panel totally disrespected Sarah Palin AGAIN...This was Bret B live from the debate site.. Finally just before they closed the show,Bret said OK what about Sarah Palin, he said with a grin on his face, is this just a publicity stunt by her, and David Yepsin (sp) said that`s all it is a publicity stunt, another girl basically agreed. The last guy on the panel said it could be a one two punch by Palin, she is hear now as the first punch, and Sept 3rd to possibly announce.
Over all they disrespected her for the entire show by not mentioning her name. They wanted to talk Perry, so Perry is the one they are pushing now
BINGO...that must be why Pawlenty looks like Icabod Crane
She probably will be. Ain’t no one else on the stage that’s really a serious contender.
I wish we could see Bachmann, Palin, Perry, and maybe Bolton. THAT would be a debate worth watching. I like Santorum, but his time is over. It’s a shame too...but it’s like no one even knows he is there.
Any GOP contender would be a FOOL not to have Bolton as VP or at a MINIMUM Sec State!
Not even THAT close to the presidential office. I can’t even imagine it. He went to poppy bush to kiss the ring before he announced. That is all I need to know about huntsman.
I believe Perry’s strong on job creation and lower taxes, but so is Bachmann. Perry supported in-state tuition for fraud Anchor Babies, and would probably support a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. In the current field, I would rate him better than Gingrich, Romney, and Johnson, but worse than Bachmann, Paul, or Cain. I would rate him about even with Pawlenty, who believed in man-made climate change, but fessed up to it in the last debate. Of course, things can change.
Thats what it is all about.......(Not the HOkey Pokey) I mean the political ring kissing, arse kissing, underage intern kissing..you name it......it is a racket! And it is well past time, we kick arse and take names and not stand for the media or the DC “elites” selecting our candidate.
(said while putting pitchfork in da truck)
Johnson should be Huntsman. I mixed his name up with someone else.
Only thing Santorum has that no one mentions is the state of PA.I wish West were debating tonight and running. He would out debate them all.
Excellent! TYVM. Spares me from kitchen runs while he watches his football!
Well Perry is announcing Sat, what do you want them to do, ignore him?
If you don’t want to show up for practice/debates then don’t expect to play in the game/win an election. jmo
Hi Mags! :)
HIya Net! Long time no Snark! ;-)
Always a pleasure to see you!
Want me to switch from the bird with the french fry to this one?
Your graphics are wonderful, just like your judgment! I need to go eat something. You please decide. I’ll be as happy as a bird with a French fry no matter your decision!
I was just letting you all know I made my first SPPAM on the LIVE thread....LOL.
See? I need to eat? I mispelled SPAM. This thread will get going once the debate starts.
FReepathon Day 42.... RLY. We need *everyone* to contribute.
4 questions I’d love to ask:
Regardless of current law and court opinions, in your personal opinion- do pregnant women have the right to kill their unborn child at any time and for any reason?
Will you allow open homosexuality in the military?
Name 500 billion in actual cuts, not decreases to planned increase/not saving thru innovations, not reducing interest payments by accounting methods...but ACTUAL CUTS you would make to the current budget.
Regardless of legality, do you personally feel placing a mosque in a building struck by a 9-11 aircraft is proper?
The PA pubbie party threw Santorum overboard. The chairman of the party here is a freaking idiot and will go to the highest bidder, which in one case was murtha, one case rendell, and the other was casey. I don’t know why he is here.
“I dont know why he is here.”
In a word? Im gonna say BRIBES!
I care about one thing. Will they repeal Obamacare? The answer is “YES” or they will not get my vote.
They may not get my vote for other reasons but that issue is a complete non-starter. Obamacare HAS to go.
You betcha! And I need to reload my fuzzy slipper box because oreally just took my last one right in the head!!!
The guy on the end was telling the truth... it pissed the others off. I saw it too.
Little League World Series Regionals !
Kelleigh Nelson’s Phony Right-Wing Series, now including:
- Rick Perry
- Mitt Romney
- Herman Cain
- Newt Gingrich
- Jon Huntsman Jr.
Watching O’Reilly right now. Brett Baier reminding people that Guliani was the media chosen Republican nominee for the 2008 elections.
President Palin cannot take a bad picture!
The First Dude looks mighty fine too!
Obamacare is just one more Unfunded Liability that isn’t even tallied up in the Social Security, Medicare liabilities that are at 115 trillion dollars as of right now.
Sickening debt we are leaving are crippling our children and theirs with,no way to pay except enslavement to totalitarian government.
As it goes right now our generation can either be heroes or zeros..... History will judge us, I am proud of what I believe in but ashamed to say I live in a society where people are told they are freely entitled to their neighbors hard work.
The Democrats have been bribing the people with money from the public trust for generations its time to bring their chickens home to roost.
“”I like Santorum, but his time is over. Its a shame too...but its like no one even knows he is there.””
I agree 100% with you. I really do like him and I don’t understand or know why he’s so far down in the polls. I like Herman also. Pretty sad time for real conservatives.
he would be great in a republican administration tho
Any GOP contender would be a FOOL not to have Bolton as VP or at a MINIMUM Sec State!
I don’t know why people like Bolton. I mean nice guy and all but what did he do in the UN? Are we still paying dues or whatever? Yes. We are still in the same position as before he was UN Secretary. He was sure a big talker that is for sure. I just prefer results.
