Palin as Secretary of Interior
Looks like one gigantic BACKLASH! to me. People arent stupid - and I think FINALLY we have become sick and damned tired of the press dictating to us what we should or should not be outraged about.
The media really overplayed its hand and set up a perfect scenario for Newt to shove it up their rears and roll to victory.
It’ll be interesting how this all plays out over the coming weeks. Ive been rooting for Newt for several months now - but I am fully aware he is only once hairbrained statement from pissing me off - but honestly, part of why im pulling for him is that I KNOW him - warts and all. He is what he is - for better or worse and he is clearly comfortable in his own skin. He may totally piss me off sometiimes - but he is a fearless warrior and very skilled in pushing back his foes with straight forward, ripping argument that strips them bear.
I find myself agreeing with Palin... for now - it is good that the vetting continue - the battle is making them all stronger.
Santorum is toast...just not as toasty as Mitt.
Sure will be glad when we get to the closed primaries. He's going to get a few delegates at the Republican convention due to the votes of Democrats and other non-Republicans.
Who would that hurt most. Newt or Obama.
>>Is this an open primary? Otherwise, who cares what rats and indys think.<<
Yes, as a matter of fact, it is an open primary, which is the reason that Ron Paul might actually close the gap with Romney if Romney fades fast enough.
I don’t know why the Republican Party awards any delegates at all to states that allow open primaries. It’s an insane way to choose a candidate, i.e., letting the opposing party’s voters have a say in the process. Just plain stupid, but we have the same system here in Wisconsin too. Just show up at the polls, ask for whichever ballot you want (GOP or DEM) and have at it. Stupid system, but I’m not sure how you stop it, Maybe by just penalizing the states by cutting their delegates significantly, like they did for the ones that scheduled too early this year.
Rudy as AG.
O B A M A. I wonder how all those Hollywood progressives like Demi Moore think of Obama?Think they will make commercials for him?The yes we can crap is so over and hitleresque.
Yes especially if disenfranchised conservatives vote for Roach Paul as a protest vote.
You can always forget about a “brokered convention.”
Here’s the facts on brokered conventions: They’re the stuff of wet dreams for journalists. EVERY presidential election since the early 70’s, they like to trot out the possibility of a brokered convention for one of the parties, usually the party not currently holding the presidency.
There isn’t going to be a brokered convention with the way the primary system is now set up. The last DNC brokered convention was in ‘48. For the GOP it was ‘52. The last POTUS elected coming out of a brokered convention was FDR in ‘32, and this is why journalists, left-wing dispensers of mental masturbation, keep the fantasy alive. They’re hoping for another FDR to emerge from the convention.
It ain’t gonna happen now. Period, end of discussion. The monetary requirements to run for POTUS are now so large that there can’t be a multi-way split of delegates to candidates who ran all of the primaries and received
enough delegates to engage in horse-trading at the convention.
Any time you read some journalist or blogger flapping their gums about “brokered conventions,” just ignore them. They’re fantasizing.
Thanks for the ping :-)
I've got Fox News on, and a lot of the commentators look positively green from throwing up on their shoes. LOL!
“This is about winning an election, not debates. FYI, if we nominate Newt, we can never talk about family values or the sanctity of marriage again.”
So, if you toked in college, you now cannot tell your children that smoking dope is wrong? How very Clintonian is your logic ... and maybe your politics?
Won't happen. In fact, Obama has already won reelection, because none of the GOP candidates left standing can beat him. All the rest is just mildly entertaining soap opera between now an November.
Worst field of GOP candidates in my lifetime, maybe ever.
Oh, I’m sure they are. I’m sure they’re so despondent that they’re doing truly irrational things to themselves.
Which makes me giddy for today....
Republican politicians have never been paragons of virtue in their private lives.
"Among women, Gingrich leads Romney 42% to 26%"
The media and establishment GOP meme is falling apart in front of their eyes. LOL!
Bless you, Marianne!
