... The GOP envisions a road to a Senate majority — it needs a net gain of four seats to win control — but at this stage, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida aren't prime real estate....

Media psych ops. Obama is despised by millions. If the Republican nominees for Senate in these states can successfully tie these idiot Demonrats to their CHIEF Demonrat, it'll all work out fine.

Romney was CHOSEN because he is a LOSER.

ROMNEY = LOSER.

Wake up and smell the coffee, or America
will perish by the GOP-E and the DNC (identical liberals).

A good many conservatives are pretty well pissed off at the GOP in Michigan and it has nothing to do with Obama.

Enough. You can leave the GOP and let Obama win anytime now. Romney is the nominee, and either help get Obama unelected or go serve your master. We can, and will, survive and prosper without your constant whine.

The best way to deal with some people is to completely ignore them. They won’t change you, you won’t change them.

Excuse me for commenting on the article instead of ripping my garments over Romney again. In PA the Republican primary was not bitter. We had two guys running that were TEA party types, and one of them won. Casey has name recognition all right...he is the rubber stamp son of a man that had the cojones to stand up to the abortionists in his party. The son learned the wrong lessons from his dad's political career. There is a good chance PA will have two conservative republicans in the senate.

I know, but every once in a while I have to vent. This person has been on every thread carping about Romney. Well, reality check: in November there will be one of two people elected president, Romney or Obama. Either you vote against Obama by voting for Romney, or you vote for him by taking votes away from someone who can defeat Obama. It’s exactly what the Germans faced in the 1932 elections when the opposition parties fractured rather than unite around a less-than-perfect candidate who could defeat Hitler.

Tom Smith (GOP nominee) has no name recognition at this point. Of course the polls will reflect that.

However, Casey has frittered away his father's legacy and now has a real record that shows him to be a reliable Obama vote and pro-abortion.

Casey hid for the past six years and has little to show for his first full term in any statewide office (Casey used each previous position as a stepping stone into the senate seat.

Bottom line: Casey is vulnerable.

Anybody who thinks that it makes a hills worth of difference whether the Kolobian Bishop swindler or the muslim communist is POTUS is retarded.

DC will never fix the problem, DC IS the problem.

Romney is so patriotic that he and his extended family cult(which he is a high priest in) has managed to avoid military service and run from fighting our nations wars going back to when they fled to Mexico to avoid getting arrested for polygamy.

Romney is a scumbag and snake oil salesman who would make P.T. Barnum blush.

Sucked every last dollar out of the companies they acquired and then filed for bankruptcy, ripping off the creditors in the process, that was their M.O., sure it’s legal, but so is partial birth abortion.

Not to mention that he isn’t any ideologically different than the skinny kenyan muslim faggot we have in the WH now, I think Obama at least has a brother in law who served.

I’ll be not voting for either of these treacherous pieces of dog crap come November.

The sooner the collapse happens, (that would be when the SS and disability checks stop coming)the better.

Then it will be possible to start from scratch, first order of business moving the Capital out of DC and rotating it amongst the states.

“Then it will be possible to start from scratch, first order of business moving the Capital out of DC and rotating it amongst the states.”

LOL! What a joke like that wil ever happen. That would take a massive and bloody civil war far worse than the first. Starting from ‘scratch’ is really what the what the ultra-leftists want; no industry, no electricity, no heat, no money and a 50-75% deceline in the population.

And as far as I’m concerned, you can take your anti-Mormon bigotry and pound pavement. Sick of all you people. You love Obama soooo much you’re willing to destroy the Republic to prevent someone YOU didn’t choose from becoming pres.

Germany was already deeply divided between Left and Right, and this division rapidly intensified. The situation was made worse by the fact that Germany lacked a conventional, broadly based conservative party, so much of the hardline Right-wing vote went to the Nazis.
By late 1932 many politicians felt that the political structures were deadlocked and that something drastic had to happen to continue the process of government. On the advice of the German Nationalists (the DNVP) and some others, President Hindenburg invited Hitler to form a coalition government of Nationalists and Nazis. At the time it was assumed that the Nazis were the junior partners in the coalition. Within a few weeks Hitler upstaged the DNVP, established a dictatorship (March 1933) and two months later Germany became a one-party state.
Hindsight can distort. It would be wrong to regard the whole period of the Weimar Republic as one long build-up to Nazi rule. Until Germany was hit by the Great Depression, the liberals, moderate socialists (Social Democrats - SPD) and moderate conservatives (DVP) were in the ascendant and formed most of the German governments of the 1920s.

Bottom line is that the only choices the Germans had at the time was a Socialist (Hitlers Party), and or the Communists.

Some choice!

You are of course right, and I just wrote all this in our new “Patriot’s History of the Modern World, vol. 1, From America’s Exceptional Ascent to the Atomic Bomb,” due out in November. But it is also true that there were a half-dozen parties and in 1932, in fact, the Nazis only got 44% of the vote-—but were put in because the other parties would not unite around an anti-Nazi party/candidate. So technically, you’re correct, but more broadly, I’m on solid ground.

Clever “Plug” in your response :) LOL. I will check out your writings. It sounds interesting, and I have always respected folks who inform themselves of history. It is at least a starting point for conversation. I do disagree however on the parties coalescing to unite against Hitler, who was at least a Nationalist, the greatest threat to Germany was the Communists. Thus the reasoning for business, landowner, etc to throw their support behind Hitler. No win scenario really. The Commies would have done the Nazis in had it been the other way around.
Funny thing though, Both of them Fellers were book writers also...specifying there intentions, and plans. Barry: Mein Kamp Hitler: Dreams for Mein Fathers, or something like that. Like I said whats the diff. :) :)

Maybe but no one that I know on FR will be happy. I am not happy today and I will take absolutely no delight in what is coming our way. It just didn't have to happen this way.
