(The Atlantic Wire)   Look at that King, Ted Cruz just put his "Shutdown Suplex" on Rand Paul, but Paul just did a reverse and is "Auditing Cruz's Fed" and...wait a minute, that's Scott Walker's music. What's he doing here and why is he carrying that chair?   (theatlanticwire.com) divider line 73

lol, none of those guys are electable. It's like they want the Democrats to win.

Wrestling isn't real and neither are these candidates.

It's reality show politics at this point, and I hope they all get chairs broken over their backs for being such theofascist pieces of sub-human sh*t.

On some level I think it's just getting the ready made excuses prepped.  When the delegates reject these nutbars during the primaries and go with a more moderate candidate the 'baggers can just turn and say "Not reel Consurvative!  Get tru ryt wingur on ballot!"

Does anyone think the guy who is in charge of the state that's 48th in the nation on job creation and who campaigned through his recall election on a message of "let me finish the term I was elected to serve" is going to be in the running, you are crazy.

"We should be looking at Governors" is the Republican shorthand for Christie, Brownback, or maybe Martinez (in the VP slot). Walker has less of a chance than Perry does of being able to wrangle the nomination based on these "we need executive experience" statements being wondered aloud.

Brownback deserves to get hit by a truck more than he deserves to be President.

If Walker's criteria includes "people who have done successful things in their states" does he realize this disqualifies him?

Brownback? You mean the guy that's pillaging education so much the Kansas Supreme Court is likely to rule the state's funding plan is unconstitutional? You mean the guy whose tax cuts were supposed to drive business and job growth but have actually killed business growth and led to more unemployment? You mean the guy that created a bureaucratic office solely for the purpose of repealing unenforceable laws but has adamantly refused to use this office to repeal laws ruled void by SCOTUS? You mean the guy who has made banning abortion such a central plank of his time in office that he's signed new anti-abortion legislation every year? Yeah, he'll be a bang-up candidate.

He'd definitely be the Santorum, but he's the only other Governor I could identify after a quick look down the list that doesn't have a known likeability problem (Brewer, Perry, Snyder, Scott, Walker, and Corbett all jump out as potential runners, but all have known issues of problems at home and/or charisma issues that will sink them if they ever considered it.) Brownback might be greatly disliked, but he actually knows how to play politics.
 
2013-11-18 12:08:29 PM  
He's right, union busting will go over real well nationally as a major campaign issue.

Please proceed, governor.

We're talking about the GOP.  How you can rule anything the GOP might do out because it is "crazy" is beyond me.

At one point in the 2012 primary, the front runner at the time was a pizza chain owner who proposed repealing all tax code with a simple 9% business - 9% income - 9% sales tax for everyone to fix the economy.

At another point in the 2012 primary, a candidate promised he would build a colony on the moon.

200 years ago some guy said he read on magical golden tablets some totally new religious secrets but no one can see the tablets because they also magically disappeared so you gotta take his word for it.  The 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate, the guy who ended up winning the Republican primary, actually believes that all happened.  He believes it so much that he wears magical underwear under his clothes every day.

i don't see how that could be possible. 2012 was like a gift from the gods. The gods are fickle. I wouldn't dare hope for another election season in my lifetime full of that much self-delusion, proud proclamations of the limits of the intellectual ability, and then topped off with a Karl Rove meltdown. All at the hands of the guy they thought they were going to beat easily.

But could it be true? There are certainly enough wing nuts in the GOP. The bigger question is will the more serious (egg headed) conservatives finally put a stop to it, or have the inmates truly taken over the asylum? God how I hope it's the inmates.

Serious Black: It's hard to keep track of all the bad things Brownback has done for the state sometimes.


Perhaps, but when have you ever heard him called out on it? The media considers him one of the respected old guard of the Republican elite compared to the young gun Tea Party types. Your typical interview with him on a 24-hour news network or the Sunday talk shows will almost always be asking for a critique of national policies rather than asking him what is going on in his neck of the woods due to his policies. Maybe I'm wrong, but I've seen a lot more stuff that could manage to make Republicans weary in the primaries of just about every other governor than Brownback who is treated well and knows how to lay on the charm if he needs to. Anyone know why his 2008 campaign never got off the ground besides people asking "who the hell is Brownback?"

Kansas media sources of late have been pretty harsh towards him, but it hasn't hit national media yet. Also, keep in mind that Brownback seems to be pretty unpopular in the state and may end up in a dogfight of a re-election campaign next year.
