|"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
|"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldnt make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

|"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams
|"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams
Ken Buck is watching what he says
All well and good, but when queried about his past statements, is he going to reinforce them or claim he's "evolved" to more "moderate" stances?

(Obama is so far in over his head, even his ears are beneath the water level.)
All Buck will have to do to win is to hammer on Obamacare and Udall’s support for Obama.
I can't tell you honestly that we can walk in and fire 8,000 employees.
Why not? Private companies do it. They have to.
Are we having a DEA just to keep these people with a paycheck?
They have failed completely in improving education in the USA. The whole department should be closed down.
We have to get away form the notion that government can't fire anyone or we will never get out of the financial hole we're in.

The cancer issue could come back and haunt him. An extraordinary amount of stress could bring the cancer back. I speak from the POV of a husband whose wife is a survivor and was there when one of the greatest oncologists in the nation (with whom my wife went to school as a child) told her to take it easy on being in high stress situations... forever. She is a teacher like me. She retired from the public schools and went to work at a Charter School (before the cancer) and I thank God for that, because they loved her so much they were able to help her through the illness by giving her time off and giving her top level health insurance. She is still in a stressful job but it's nothing like I have to cope with still being in the 4th largest public school district in the nation. But if folks start raising the political viability based on a potential disease recurrence, it could bite him. He wouldn't be the first to succumb to that potential health issue.

Oh,Lord, anyone but Buck! That man is an idiot. He snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by constantly sticking BOTH size 12 cowboy boots in his mouth. The Buck mouth-boot connection was magnetic: as soon as someone would yank the boots out, why they’d fly right back into his mouth like neither were attached to his brain, the mouth of course DEFINITELY NOT being attached to his brain.
The fool would NOT stay on message (assuming he even knew what that meant). Instead of giving five or six pat answers to every question no matter what the question like Scott Brown did in Massachusetts, Buck thought he was smart enough to play the reporter’s gottcha game and got clobbered, because guess what, Buck ain’t all that smart.
I gave the guy a $1000.00 because it was such a sure win. But he blew it. SURELY the GOP can come up with a better person than Buck to beat Udall.

Was Ken Coors unavailable ? Here’s another race for Buck to blow.
Not so fast, Kemo Sabe
If Boner and Yertle the Turtle manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this election by pushing the "immigration reform" that the amnesty scumbags Gutierrez, Schumer, Dear Leader, and the entire Demoncrat Party, GOP-e, and the Chamber of
Commerce Horrors like, the Senate maybe ain't goin' nowhere except back to Hairy Reid's clutches. The GOP base is apt to stay home and let the entire Stupid Party ship sink so they can continue to play the part of the abused girl friend.
Frankly, they will deserve it but we won't.
