WASHINGTON -- Bob Crowder, the Republican who ran against Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) in the primary, announced Wednesday that he is endorsing Democrat Patrick Murphy in the congressional race. And he didn't mince his words.

“As a Republican for over 30 years, I'm embarrassed by the radical fringe that has taken over the party. Sadly, Allen West is their poster child, and the hateful, divisive comments he's made throughout this campaign make it clear to me he’s the wrong choice for our district,” Crowder said in a statement.

Crowder, who is the Martin County Sheriff, said he is backing Murphy because "he has the right temperament and respect for others -- including people he doesn't agree with."

This year, the GOP adopted — again — a platform under which no woman could ever legally have an abortion. Not if she was impregnated by her own father. Not if she was raped. Not if the abortion were needed to save her life. Never.

Obama will soon accomplish something that no other president in history has ever done. He is only a mere $400 billion away from having added $6 trillion of debt in only four years. It is amazing that the mind set of liberals is such that $6 trillion in four years is good but $5 trillion in eight years is bad.

How much of that debt was already incurred by previous administrations? And isn't it funny that you "conservatives" never made a peep about the debt until your guy was out of office? And why were the wars not added into the debt total until after 2009?

Sorry, son, but I've been griping about the debt ever since it was a mere $3 trillion. Bush's $5 trillion was what chased me away from the Republican Party. You are missing the point, though. Five trillion in eight years was bad. Six trillion in four years is more than twice as bad yet you can't see it because of your blind obedience to "the one." As far as how much was from a previous administration, well, I suppose you could say the first trillion but don't forget that the last two years of Bush's presidency was dominated by Pelosi and Reid so in reality you will have to blame the Democrats for the last $8 trillion when you add those two years in. So there you have it. You guys have added $8 trillion in only six years and you made Bush look like a saint.(For that matter, you all made Jimmy Carter look like a saint.)

LOL.... "dominated by Pelosi and Reid ?" Really? You are drinking way too much of the Fool-Aid, "son". The fact is that Bush and his puppetmasters never included the cost of the "wars' in their debt figures, so the actual rise of the debt was not nearly as big as the Teabagged Retardicans would have you believe. And the effect of the tax cuts for the wealthy hadn't kicked to full fruition either. So to blame the Democrats for the whole rise in the debt is just not correct. Son.


And BTW, Jimmy Carter was a better President than any of the Retardicans that came after him.

And my allegiance is to this country, junior. You may want to join the few of us that remain.
