FTA: " Finally, there has even been some shifting of economic values, or at least in how the party presents those values. The other speaker at the Kemp dinner was Representative Paul Ryan, who spoke about how to alleviate poverty. He didn't abandon any of his fundamental beliefs, but he framed those beliefs in a more welcoming way and opened up room for growth and new thinking. "

History has shown that the bolded part above is far more likely than anything else.

I seem to remember some saying about lipstick and pigs.

It's also interesting to see that Rubio and Christie are already positioning themselves for 2016 although it was hardly a surprise before the election that they were the prime contenders.

The XL pipeline is a money grab. It's designed purely for short-term profit by a handful of companies that will enable Canada to use our territory to get their oil to countries like China.

One would think that, by now, people would realize that if the GOP supports something, it's painfully bad for the US as a whole.

Actually, since the oil would be shipped by pipeline instead of truck or rail, it's going to mean a long term net loss of jobs.

30,000 temporary construction jobs to replace thousands of transport jobs. When the pipeline is finished, they're all out of work.

If thirty days is how long it takes for conservatives to completely abandon everything they've been pathologically ideological about over the past four years, a more cynical man than me would see that as evidence that keeping power is more important than principle for these people.

The Republican Party has a long way to go before it revives itself as a majority party. But that speech signifies a moment in that revival. And I would say the last month has marked a moment.

Bahahahahaha

It's all the same people, backed by all the same people. NOTHING has changed.

On Topic:

David Brooks is still sporting the tire tread marks from the last time he was thrown under the GOP Derp Bus. The fact that he's back to toting water for them yet again is both comical and sad all at the same time.

But, regardless. Is there any doubt now that they're going to be trotting out their version of Token in 2016? And it also amuses me how Brooks is confident that the Derpers are going to 'self-deport' themselves from the GOP with the moderates pushing back to the Left.

When, on the contrary, all I've seen is a rallying of the Derpers to seize the GOP entirely from the RINOs.

In short, the establishment GOP is full head-on retreat back toward the center, they're grooming the only brown candidate that they have and David Brooks is mildly delusional about the lunatics in his own party.

I don't know, man, at this point, I'd rather they revealed themselves to be opportunistic, amoral jackals, rather than the scary truth that they really believe their own bullshiat....

this is a party that had absolutely no problem lying during the entire presidential campaign. Hell Rmoney would say anything from one second to the next, then have a spokesman "clarify it" after.

I believe nothing the republican party says.

It's not security of one of our assets. It's like saying that your neighbor parking his car in your driveway is a good thing because security. It's the opposite - it's now a liability and a risk that provides no direct benefit.

When the commies take over in Canada, America will be in grave danger. There is no way we can resist them militarily, or on the hockey rink either, for that matter. Our only hope will be to strangle their oil exports.

Controlling Canada is our only hope for building Pax Britaamericana, which will rule the world from the 21st century on.

Philip Francis Queeg: And it does this by taking raw materials from the midwest refineries capable of processing bitumen (i.e.:jobs).


It's not zero-sum. The pipeline system to the ohio valley is wholly inadequate for moving the volume of bitumen available. Access to the Galveston facilities expands capacity as a whole. The processing monopoly of that area distorts markets anyways. While I feel for the people employed by the industry in Ohio, blocking expansion merely for job self preservation isn't a very strong argument.

Of course, the fark all y'all approach is available as well. There's the Enbridge route to Prince Rupert, BC, and the possibility of upgrading it in Alberta. Galveston made sense because there was unused refining capacity, and it gave you control over a critical resource on its way to China. But if the US wants to cut off its nose to spite its face, I suppose that's its prerogative.
