Weaver95: Lenny_da_Hog: Thunderpipes: Wow. Liberals actually believe Obama will bring down the deficit.

This is why the country fails.

I understand.

The rules say when the GOP looks bad, you have to change the subject.

the weird part is that this isn't any kind of 'bad news' for the Republican party. its part and parcel of the party nomination process.

First we must make a stand at the covention.

We need to do so before that. There has to be a prominent, articulate conservative willing to run as a third-party candidate. The quicker that candidate gets into the race and organized, the greater percentage of the vote he or she can garner.

I doubt there is time for that, with the GOP ready to take down any conservative candidate, like they did Herman Cain & Palin, who will even be willing to enter the race.
The GOP is powerful & what they did to Palin & Cain is mind boggling!

Yes, I said the GOP, not the Rats, it was our own repub party who took them down!

some more great Freeper gems from today:

from a poll that showed women flocking to Obama

Just another reason to repeal sufferage. Women gave us Obozo in the first place because they bought into the whole touchy feely hope and change BS. Biggest difference between men and women is that men "think", women "feel".

Let's Roll

Not this woman. However, in 2008 I "felt" that a community organizer would be a divider. :-)

Seriously, if I thought all women would not be allowed to vote, I would give up my vote without a struggle because I trust men to do the logical and right thing WAY more than I trust most women. But we know that the left would cheat with women not being allowed to vote as they do with everything else.

Those in government benefit by making government bigger. Has any Pubbie ever asked for a pay cut or backed a bill for a pay cut for all of our elected officials in the HoR or the Senate?

Have the Pubbies ever done the same in regards to curtailing the powers they have granted to the same people?

I don't look at the intentions just the results.

Oh my gosh, I've said this soooo many times throughout the years on FR and have gotten absolutely skewered by so many folks.

All throughout the Bush years, baby Bush years when we were forced to endure big government Republicans, compassionate conservatism and loss of personal liberties.

bobbette: tarheel07: bobbette: Okay, just to get on actual politics instead of chortling for a second here -

This is great news... for homos in North Carolina.

On May 8th a ballot initiative to place a ban on same-sex marriage in North Carolina's constitution will coincide with the NC primaries.

Opponents of the constitutional amendment have been campaigning steadily and the most recent poll shows voters have gone from a majority favouring the amendment to a majority opposing it. If Santorum supporters have no reason to show up to vote in the primary in large numbers, this gives opponents a better shot at defeating it.

Thanks for your observation. I, for one, am voting against the stupid constitutional amendment. It's vague, discriminatory, and intended to cement into the constitution the already-existing state statute establishing marriage as between a "male person" and a "female person." I'm hoping the supporters of the amendment are merely a vocal minority. Sad thing is mostly Republicans will be out at the polls on primary day since Obama is running unopposed.

Romney might be running virtually unopposed at that point, too. I'm glad to hear you're voting, bring friends!


There are a few Facebook groups against the amendment. The Winston-Salem Journal published my letter to the editor a couple of months ago, so I'm doing my part to get the word out. On May 8, vote against hate!

Grand_Moff_Joseph: BunkoSquad: In 24 hours, the Tea Party will be claiming they supported Mitt all along.

Doubtful. They'll either continue to vote for notRomney out of spite, or just not vote at all in the primaries, hoping that depressed turnout will send a message of its own.

After a few months, the TP will realize that the party brass has thrown them under the bus for good, and they will revolt.


"I think you overestimate their chances."

Specifically their chances of not being obedient little sheep when big daddy Ailes tells them to vote Republican in the general. The teabaggers are just Republican hipsters, trying to pretend to not be a part of the crowd by being a part of the other, exact same crowd.

tkwasny: NateGrey: tkwasny: If the GOP goes for deep dirt on the Obama administration, non-stop, they might win if they pick a black VP like Condi Rice or Allen West. If Romney wins it's more corporatism just like Obama. The people lose again in 2012 either way. Loss with a cannon shot to the face, or loss with a hop into a lava pit.

Both sides are bad. Vote Republican.

So now its become who you DON'T want more in the White House. Gee I'm all a-twitter about this election cycle.


It always was, or at least since the 1980s. You think Obama was the liberal that folk on the left WANTED? He was just the guy least likely to sell MORE of the country to the Kleptocrats.

Well, it's not all rainbows from here for Rmoney. With his main competition out, any losses from this point on will look even worse than they would if Frothy were still in. Losing to Frothy is bad enough - losing to a guy who's out of the race is worse.

You got the enraged Newt fans who are trashing Santorum for not dropping out and throwing his support to Newt, and claiming it was all a conspiracy to hand the nomination to Romney..

You've got the 'omg vote romney or the ni-BONG will steal your wife!' crowd who are desperately pushing the 'hold your nose and vote romney' spiel...

And then you've got the atomic-raging crowd that are declaring a Third Party run with SOMEONE, THEY DON'T KNOW WHO, BUT SOMEONE OTHER THAN ROMNEY.

There's so much derp being flung around, at each other, at the strawmen GOP establishment and Democrats and Obama..It's a great day to be a non-Freeper.

hitlersbrain: It's kind of a relief. I could live with Romney as President, as unlikely as that seems. It would be kind of funny to see him get into office and tell his nut-wing constituents 'thank you, now go to hell you lunatics'.


He wouldn't be the worst thing ever, at least he's would be a rational player with a centrist track record. He's more of a mirror image of Obama policywise, hence the ultra-rightwing freakout today.

That said, I'm still voting Obama, 1) because I still like him better on a personal level, and 2) to keep the House in check. I can't see giving any of those nutjobs in Congress any more power than they already have.

I found one calling Romney and Santorum socialists. I do kind of like the McRomney thing though.

Well, rush, here is a lesson I have learned in life. I have learned it the hard way. Here it is (and it applies everywhere to everyone...

I do not even listen to what people have to say. I look at what they do. In the case of "professional politicans", I look at what they did in office.

mcromney is a socialist. Period.

Santorum is a big government socialist. Period.

(WARNING:FREEPER POP)

Also from that link I provided...

Texas conservatives are marginalized(Due to their own map redistricting), and the Freepers are flipping out because it's "oppressing conservative voices". Nevermind that the state reps(who are silent) aren't going to mention they borked it up in the first place.

Whining about RINOs(Maine senators) not helping with defecit reduction(while also calling themself pragmatic)

Romney needs to go full Birther

Romney won't win

Romney is the worst candidate ever

I won't vote for Rmoney

Romney is not going to fight the EPA, or Marxist indoctrination at our schools, or the growing global control of our USA, or the illegal invasion of our country

Cries for carpetbagging the "Ultra liberal" Northeast with candidates from the south.

Guess which political party the last President to balance the budget belonged to. That would be "Democrat", since you're clearly incapable of looking it up. As for Obama- I think anyone that's not completely braindead (meaning: obviously not you) would realize that the time to pay down the debt is when the economy is GOOD. So tell me: why didn't Bush pay down the debt? Why did he, in fact, raise it by trillions? And more importantly, why didn't you care until a black guy was in office?
