Fees?

I bet you loved registering a car in MN. $500 to get plates for a crew cab pickup. $350 for a Cruze.

My son, traveling around in the Air Force, likes to tell me how much it cost to get plates for cars in various states he is in or friends of his are in. Best yet: a buddy of his transferred the title and registration from one state to another and got his license plate for ......... $20 total.

“Yes, it’s been a dark day in American politics, particularly for the Republican Party, and may get darker soon, now that Jon Huntsman is starting to waiver.”

Take heart! Buddy Roehmer can bring the same determination, energy and competitive spirit to the whole nation that he once did to Louisiana!

Tpaw should have run for Gov again and he would have won preventing the government shutdown and setting up the chances of MN going red in 2012. MN will be red in the next 4-6 years for sure. He had an opportunity to help accelerate the process but misguided ambitions prevented that happening.

Huntsman is only in the race to make Mittens appear conservative. He will stay until hemRomoid wins enough states to get the nomination, and will then bail out.

Hasta la Vista or whatever. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. My assessment of this nebish dropped a 1000 fold when I witnessed his vicious personal attacks on Bachmann in the Iowa debates.

Typical machine politician.

Not surprised. Rep. Micheale Bachman handed him his rear-end during the debate last week.

Rather than running against Oboma, he seemed hell bent on destroying Bachman. He seemed almost obsessed with her. During the debates, he was acting like a real jerk. He was turning my stomach.
Being obsessed with Bachman, he probably quit because it was she, of all people, who won. It probably blew his mind.
I wouldn't be surprised if he continued to attack her. I don't know what his problem is.

Huntsman should be the next to drop out.

Actually, I'd like to see an "orderly" thinning. By orderly, I mean some RINO here and some Conservative there. Otherwise, there would be too much coalescing on the last standing Rino, while the conservatives are still spread out, giving that Rino momentum he/she does not deserve, and can use to harm conservatism. Thus, I'd like to see the 4-5 Rino/4-5 Conservatives thin to 3-4 Rino/3-4 Conserv and so on, till there is a clear momentum to the last standing Conservative, strong and ready to continue.

The perfect candidate:

Newt’s brain. Cain’s optimism. Romney’s appearance/good looks. Sarah’s survival skills. Bachman’s focus. Perry’s military & executive longevity as Texas gov. Santorum’s conservatism. Huntsman’s foreign policy experience.

With a stunning stage presence and speaking voice of Clint Eastwood.

We all wish!

Like others, I think Huntsman is the next drop out. He has no name recognition and was in the Obozo Admin.

IF Bachmann continues to gain strength AND the Lamestream keeps trying to pound her then we might have a worthy candidate. She’s not afraid to speak out.

Bachmann / CAIN???

Hmm ~ RINOs in this race. Only one to ever run for public office as a Democrat is........ Ricardo Peri...... right?

Somehow I don't think Pawlenty's supporters are going to start doing the Texas Two Step.

Now if you mean Romney, he was never anything but a Republican, although there are questions about Ron Paul. Isn't he really a Libertarian Party type? Did he actually run for office as a Nazi or is that just gossip.

Howdy GRRRRRR

Considering that Romney has been touted as the LEADER of the Republican party and the “next” in line for the presidency...LONG before theothers threw their hats into the ring...and considering he is the BIG $$$ raiser...when you look at this list...

why isn’t anyone asking why Mitt doesn’t bow out?

1. Michele Bachmann (4823, 28.55%)
2. Ron Paul (4671, 27.65%)
3. Tim Pawlenty (2293, 13.57%)
4. Rick Santorum (1657, 9.81%)
5. Herman Cain(1456, 8.62%)
6. Rick Perry (718, 3.62%) write-in
7. Mitt Romney (567, 3.36%)
8. Newt Gingrich (385, 2.28%)
9. Jon Huntsman (69, 0.41%)
10. Congressman Thad McCotter (35, 0.21%)

So you met him and know that he ran for office as a Democrat? How about this, I met your mom and she told me you think you're a RINO.

SOunds like as much evidence eh.

Look, I went to New York City once ~ first trip ~ and was waiting on a bus to go up or down one of the main Avenues. There were these really beautiful girls who came along and were talking in that truly incomprehensible slum-dog accent they got there, and it really turned me off.

One down...four or five to go....one not yet announced.

Mrs. Palin is remaining quiet....she is waiting....she knows her battle plan....she knows her timing.....she is learning....studying the opposition....guarding the "cubs"....waiting quietly with an occasional "roar" (like the comments at the Iowa State Fair).....reconnoitering the challengers from within and the enemY from without.....studying weaknesses....building and conserving her strength....endlessly practicing....reading...honing her skills.....waiting.....waiting.....

This war has not yet begun. What has been seen of the other candidates to date has been nothing but minor and irrelevant skirmishing. Candidates in...candidates out....candidates winning....candidates losing.....candidates saying silly things.....candidates saying cogent, insightful things....

It is a very very long way to next November. There is no need to rush. In her mind's eye, Mrs. Palin smiles knowingly and remembers the words of Napolean, "Never interupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." and General Patton, "Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn!"

When she arrives, you can count on total war. She has learned how to fight. She does not spin; she does not back away from principles; she means exactly what she says...and says exactly what she means. She builds a base of support because of who and what she is....not because of who or what she panders to.

Patience.....patience....

Wait for it!

And keep the faith....

Mittens needs to drop out now but the LameStream will keep pumping him up and try to nominate him for us...
