"Rush Limbaugh is a wind bag", but a high paid one. Ratings may come before the good of the Republican Party?
The GOP problem was R L was a leader of the Republican Party rather than Sen.John McCain, from 2009 to 2011.
Senator McCain's robust attack on Sec of State Hillary Clinton was in part theater.
McCain need to lead the party until someone can be found.
Bush family seems disinterested at the moment???
Their beaten down and unlikely to ever escape W's, cough, legacy. Even Jeb's handsome Latino youngun has taken his show to Texas rather than give it a go in Florida where he'd have to compete for votes against Cuban and Ruerto Rican pols.

McCain's robust attack on madame secretary was likely all theater as he let it slip, again, that he too had prior knowledge of under staffing at certain embassies.

That it's up to McCain to lead the party shows what sorry condition the GOP is in.

so let's apply that thinking to....abortion. or prayer in schools. or any of the right wing stupidity that insinuates, because they're smarter(???) than everyone else, that they can dictate to others about how they should live their life.
just so you know....hypocrisy is not going to help your cause.
People that cannot differentiate "political terrorism" from lame blamegame "spontaneous uprisings" might need to go back to school themselves, and get a clue.

a gun nut would be someone who thinks he needs guns for something other than hunting or personal protection. though someone who needs 10 guns for personal protection has a problem.

Want to hear something scary? The military is now training more drone pilots than fighter or bomber pilots combined. H/K's are coming my friends. Get ready!
Let's just hope Iran's, Russia's and China's military don't learn how to shoot them down while strengthening their military air power. Talk about sitting ducks.

...Clinton’s appearance on the Hill, expected to be her last before she is succeeded by John Kerry, provided a broader vindication of the one-time (and probably future) presidential candidate. There had been concern among Democrats that the Benghazi episode would mar her otherwise successful tenure at State — but in fact she is leaving the post more popular than ever.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 67 percent of Americans view her favorably, a career high and roughly double the popularity congressional Republicans have. So when Clinton clashed with GOP lawmakers Wednesday, it had the feeling of a Hummer colliding with a Smart Car.

See? Only Liberals are so easy to fool.
Not one tough question from the bunch of them.

They care more about protecting their party than us.

you have to love it.....

In malpractice case, Catholic hospital argues fetuses aren’t people

...when it came to mounting a defense in the Stodghill case, Catholic Health’s lawyers effectively turned the Church directives on their head. Catholic organizations have for decades fought to change federal and state laws that fail to protect “unborn persons,” and Catholic Health’s lawyers in this case had the chance to set precedent bolstering anti-abortion legal arguments. Instead, they are arguing state law protects doctors from liability concerning unborn fetuses on grounds that those fetuses are not persons with legal rights.

As Jason Langley, an attorney with Denver-based Kennedy Childs, argued in one of the briefs he filed for the defense, the court “should not overturn the long-standing rule in Colorado that the term ‘person,’ as is used in the Wrongful Death Act, encompasses only individuals born alive. Colorado state courts define ‘person’ under the Act to include only those born alive. Therefore Plaintiffs cannot maintain wrongful death claims based on two unborn fetuses.”.

The Tea Baggers are as close to a mob as it gets. By the way what do we mean when we continue to say that we are spreading democracy. You seem to show a preponderance to make things up as you go.
