Do you see Mass-Mitt, or ANY of these so called candidates, screaming to order Beltway-RICO-Vampire-Care EXEMPTIONS to EVERYONE, their first day in office, not to just a DISCRIMINATE SELECT.

Precisely. They each play good-cop, bad-cop to each other’s base.
That is a shame. That should never happen.
Holidays must suck for you. The only Rats in the whole family are my wife's grandparents. They are old school Rats and didn't vote for Obummer so they are tolerable and provide an excellent punching bag during Christmas dinner for the rest of us.
No, no. I was joking. Please see #57.
They’re a horror show. We have my mom the community organizer, my cousin the Paultard, and my uncles who think FDR is still alive and fighting the Nazis.
If it weren’t for alcohol, I dunno how I’d make it through. It’s one thing to be called a fascist by some random lib online. It’s quite another to be called a fascist by your own family.....
Nonetheless, they’re my family, and goofy or not, I still love them anyway.
I did too, until I started taking a closer look at things (at my husband’s insistence)
Yes, he’s better than Romney, but not tons better.
I would hate to see people ditch the conservative in the race just because Newt is a good debater.
I don’t have to rely on articles from pundits. I recall Newt’s past and his Speakership. He was the DNC-demonic-rat’s first run at a smear machine take-down and they were successful. He beat all but one of the eight-nine “ethics” charges launched against him, and who can ever forget the magazine cover “The Gingrich that Stold Christmas” that hit the news stands “before” Christams?
He’s all too often been too smart for his own good and particularly ours. He’s been lost since he’s been out of office. Writing books, “thinking”, making speeches and finally, putting together a pretty solid plan for the future and a run at the White House.
I’m not going to deal in past actions or short-comings with any of our viable candidates, save for Romney, who’s no different from the Marxist.
The lamestream has already enjoyed a lot of success shredding Herman Cain’s reputation and tearing down Michele Bachmann as some sort of wild-eyed right-wing extremist, blinded by migraine headaches, unable to make proper decisions, when in fact, she’s a rock solid conservative.
Governor Perry hurt himself by himself for the most part and now he’s thought of as dumb, which he’s not.
Pretty soon, we’ll have nobody left but Romney, and I’m not falling for THAT.
Watch Greta’s interview tonight and pray that does a lot of GOOD.
I remember from previous posts of yours that you like him. There is a reason that he polls so low in Georgia - we know him.
In any case, I trust Bachmann, Santorum, even Perry, before Newt at this point.
To each his own.
I’m glad you were only joking. I lost my mother a month ago, and thank God I’d matured enough to appreciate all her good qualities and deep love for me, rather than our differences (which I used to argue when I was young and rebellious). I miss her so much.
Sounds like you’ve also learned just to avoid subjects like politics, but I hear the humor in your writing so it sounds like you two have a great relationship.
Moms are precious and you only get one, so enjoy her as often as possible.
As they say, if the boot is on your neck, does it matter whether its a right boot or a left boot?
Like I’ve said before, many months ago...
I feel like we are once again going to get McCain’d in the GOP nomination...
This is it, this is the last election cycle I feel that I can honestly call myself a Republican...I affiliated years ago because it was the party that identified with MY personal conservative beliefs, more than the opposition...It was that simple back then...
I’m concerned that most would consider me an “establishment” player in the party because of my elected position...What I hung on the end of my name in official capacity used to mean something up to the 2008 elections...And I did everything I could from within the party to effect a change in mindset on issues candidates and incumbent officials held on issues we (grassroots worked so hard to get into the state platforms for canditates and the same to utilize in their campaigns and when they made it to office...
It, unfortunately, has not been all that successful...
I’m not going to hash out those issues again...This is not the forum, and time to do so...
But I will say that if the grassroots, comprised of everyday citizens of this country, like the Tea Party folks, and other conservative individuals and groups, have made their case very well, and the Establishment in the Republican PArty leadership have continued to ignore and placate the base in such a manner since 2004, I’m convinced that this is the last time conservatives are going to put up with that leadership placation and reject the Republican Party outright...
I wish I could see a light at the end of this tunnel, but I feel like some additional lengths of pipe are being put on the end of this thing and our own party is helping with the constructions...
Just my opinion...
“Sounds like youve also learned just to avoid subjects like politics, but I hear the humor in your writing so it sounds like you two have a great relationship.”
We do. The gag gifts have been a running joke for years. I’m hoping to get a Guy Fawkes mask and a Che t-shirt this year. Mom is getting Mark Levin’s new book and perhaps a stylish Herman Cain T.
