whatsupchuck: The GOP cultivated the tea party, demonized affordable health care and painted themselves into an uncomfortable corner. Again.Moderate republicans have little choice but to side with democrats to get a budget passed.
parasol: I admit, with lowered head, to going to "freeperville" with some regularityIt's been interesting to watch the "RINO" posts, and those attacking the Speaker - there seems to be no GOP member they will not fall upon with sharp keyboards.This week? They ADORE Ted Cruz - i'd have re-posted but understand that is a "no-no" - suffice to say, I've come to think that the not-stupid Cruz is trying to woo the Tea Party who will only remember he fillibstered the bill (not that it didnt work) about the time both their perception of rates "increase" and the mid-terms roll around.
keylock71: Whatever... I'm not buying the "moderate Republican" bullshiat anymore.
LouDobbsAwaaaay: keylock71: Whatever... I'm not buying the "moderate Republican" bullshiat anymore.Moderate Republicans are easy to identify. They call themselves "Democrats".
bwilson27: The Snake Worshipers went too far that day, and threw green poo at the sun worshipers. The Sun Worshipers, accustomed to ordinary red poo, used this as proof that the Snake god was a false god.
parasol: This frightens me - if it works, the mid-terms may usher in new people who not only don't know how to govern (or don't care) but have a terrible agenda.
SVenus: Sadly, the last time I went to a Tx Dem Party function, the far left was still running the bus.
Lackofname: It should be clear after last election that you just Can't Win with the Tea Party alone.
SVenus: The train wreck that is the Republican Party has at least a couple more election cycles to go.If the Dems moved ever so slightly to the middle here in Texas, the switch would be epic.Sadly, the last time I went to a Tx Dem Party function, the far left was still running the bus.There's a LOT of folks in the middle that want sanity brought back, but I'm not sure which party really wants the middle anymore.Meanwhile, it's been a real hoot watching Cruz attention whore his way to the front of the TPCT (Tea Party Crazy Train)
LouDobbsAwaaaay: SVenus: Sadly, the last time I went to a Tx Dem Party function, the far left was still running the bus.Ah yes, "the far left". As hilariously misapplied as this label has become, I'm sure it's even more hilarious when used in Texas. Is "the far left" anyone who doesn't exclusively listen to country music?
thornhill: Except it wasn't a filibuster.
Yakk: This was about attention whoring not getting senate votes.
Muta: thornhill: Except it wasn't a filibuster.Have fun explaining that nuance to a Teabagger.
Heliovdrake: All I hear from my Ultra Conservative co-workers and relatives is how Ted is a hero for his brave filibuster to stop Obama care...
SVenus: The train wreck that is the Republican Party has at least a couple more election cycles to go.And then the moderates leave the gop
parasol: Plus? He looks like the grown-up version of Damien from "Omen" so I can imagine him in unflattering light. Just getting ready for Halloween, really.
