Romney:
Passed health care reform identical to ACA
Passed assault weapons ban
Signed off on (but opposed) gay marriage

Fartbongo:
Assassinating enemy combatants
Continued imprisonment with trial at Gitmo
Passed tax cuts

Who is the Democrat here?

Drinking those moments when Peggy Noonan's quim

No they prefer the post civil war corporate person hood. The gilded age is the Tea Party golden age. I realize that that means free blacks but you can virtually own them with debt to their employers so it is not really any different plus you can say you support FREEDOM

Citrate1007: The Tea Party and Bible Pounders will be the downfall of the republican party. When you allow the extreme fringes to embrace ignorance with an end result that is counter to fiscal conservatism and small government in order to appease their narrow world views you end up with a ship sailing alee and a liberal elitist empty suit like Romney at the wheel.


There is no downfall. They are winning. They are the majority. Rational people will soon never have a say i governance again.

Maybe not the Tea Party per-se, but Republicans are pretty much guaranteed to take the majority in the Senate (argue all you want about whether or not that is control), and are likely to maintain their position in the house.

The only possible reason would be because your base despises you.... but even then no-one can be elected by just their base (unless you can suppress the vote to extremis).

Because their 'populist' movement served the political ends of the people who control the corpoate media, they got a much bigger microphone than other such movements with more support.

Naw, Romney is Riffraff and Paul Ryan's Magenta. That way *spoiler alert*, they can kill Fartkenbongo at the end before flying away in a spaceship. Brad and Janet are the American people, being seduced away from virtue by the Doctor, and Rocky is still Obamacare (created by man, attractive but dumb and doesn't do what the doctor wants), while Eddie is the Constitution (something Obama was once fascinated with but *spoiler alert* hacks to pieces with an axe and feeds to other people). Sarah Palin is Columbia, and John McCain is Dr Scott.

Lost Thought 00: Republicans are pretty much guaranteed to take the majority in the Senate


Most recent Nate Silver prognostication puts that "closer to a tossup." The situation is ripe for it, but I'm not sure we can call that "guaranteed" yet. Hell, the Republicans should've taken it last time but thanks to the "I'm not a witch" lady and Mrs. Chickens-For-Healthcare out in Nevada they managed to pluck defeat from the jaws of victory. I don't think they've got any less crazy since then, but I could be wrong.

The tea party is just a group of misdirected baby boomers and elderly folks who can't see the problems facing the country are caused by them.

They're basically the idiot with a match being told to ignite the limited supply of fuel to keep warm and prevent their own agonizing death at the expense of eveyone else in the camp.

oh my pistols free me
So don't tread on me, no not at all
Useless legislation, with heuristic intention

Hawaii will never be a state
We want no free abortions,
Away with your tubal ligations

Why'd they vote Obama again?

Well I was walking down the street
On the way to the polls
When a Tea Party guy tried to
steal my soul.
He shook-a me up, he took me by the arm.
He had a pickup truck, and a
medicare card.
He stared at me and I felt disgust.

They are merely beating out established GOP candidates in the reddest of the red districts and view this wrongfully view this as encouragement. Most voters will stay with party lines regardless of what is going on but the ones who decide elections are fairly moderate and only lean slightly left/right. The Obama/healthcare is evil tactic didn't work on most of these folks and the Tea Party who ran on a platform of economic reform during the mid-term elections have proven themselves to care more about penis-goes-where legislation than economic reform. Furthermore, the narrative of impending economic doom has been stifled by actual economic recovery which hurts their chances even more.

While small government is a great ideal we have seen nothing from the GOP that shrinks government. Instead we have seen them focused on preserving tax breaks for the rich at the expense of social services, penis-goes-where legislation that expands government into the bedroom, and hypocritically defending pork-barrel DoD spending in an attempt to maintain two wars which we are slowly backing out of. The worse part about the DoD spending is that it is not about taking care of our troops, which not to long ago was the GOP mantra, but it is about taking care of non-competitive contracts to private businesses where there is more excess and waste than any other line item in our annual budget. This has served to show people that the Tea Party and GOP are not in fact concerned about fiscal conservatism, but are simply trying to use tax dollars to get rich and maintain power.

Contrary to Tea Party delusions, most people who consistently vote republican are quite charitable people and know that there is a need for a social safety net. They would prefer that they choose what charities to support rather than the federal government; however, they also realize that education first and foremost in addition to a welfare program that provides opportunity for economic achievement in lieu of entitlement is necessary.

Only because the extreme fringes of your lunatic associates wouldn't allow it. Dole was up against a fairly popular Clinton, and McCain was doomed by a ridiculous VP choice. And both had that cranky old man vibe to them.

The GOP's only hope is to embrace moderation. If we got rid of you too, that's just a bonus.

The comments on TFA are hilarious. "If Romney wins, apocalypse derp, oh noes..."

Yeah, I'm really worried about what Romney will do if elected. And of equal concern, if I marry Heidi Klum, will it be awkward between Seal amd me at holiday gatherings? Will Heidi refuse to have a threesome with me and Linda Evangelista?

Look at the seats up for grabs in the next two senate cycles - moderation isn't likely to help as much as rallying the base in the seats they're trying to win. They're trying to kick out sitting D's in purple or lean red states that won in the moderately anti-bush 2006 election and the 2008 Obama wave. They need to rally the base in '12 to win the red states and same in '14 to have a hope at kicking out moderate D's in swing states.

However, you'll probably see a strong shift to the center in 2016. It'll be lead by demographic changes, the presidential race, and the shift to defense of purple/lean blue seats from the 2010 election.
