So who's the next GOP midget who will run against us.
How about Herman Cain, the Pizza Mogul?
I say, the man who knows the right amount of pepperoni to put on my pizza will do well in a crisis.
Unlike Obama, Herman Cain once held a real job.

The Republican Party is in its twilight, sailing over horizon where it will disappear from view.

Your hate and greed is no longer fashionable.

Like most right whiners, when proven wrong you resort to the racial slur.
Like a typical liberal you just to conclusions, as I was making a point to the original poster in their remarks regarding the term "boy". But once again your indoctrination shows, and your cries of racism rise up.

You losers need to get a new game.

Damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnit all to floDUH, but are you one of dumb carol's former bogus students?(BTW, the term in the next sentence should be "that's.") I can't believe how gullible you losers are; some reich-wing non-journalist tells you all your life's misery is the responsibility of "liberals" who are ALL black, stupid, on welfare--when they're not Hollywood, elitist, rich--and you just fall into goosestep. I know the "welfare Cadillac" was a song requested by Nixon, but I'm thinking your logic might have fit well in Germany during the 30's as well...
Your calling me gullible is the pot calling the kettle black. In more ways than one.

Krauthammer Mocks Rand Paul For ‘Absurd And Ridiculous’ Drone Concerns:‘Not A Serious Issue’

“There is no conceivable circumstance under which the president would use a drone in the United States, absent a civil war like we had in the 1860s or an invasion of al Qaeda from Saskatchewan.”

what is wrong with all of these right wing sites?
Forget John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Conservatives in the House and Senate have been hit with the stupid stick. All I can think is that George McClellan’s ghost is whispering in their ear.
The conservatives in Congress — forget Republican leaders for a minute — want to make their stand not on the continuing resolution to keep the government going, but on the debt ceiling.
Each time Congress has had a debt ceiling fight, it has ended badly for the GOP. Conservatives have been rhetorically slaughtered by even conservatives in the media each time they’ve tried to block a debt ceiling increase.
And guess what? They’ve failed every time.
They did get sequestration, but now are witnesses their own Republican leaders flail about and lose a PR battle over something Barack Obama himself proposed.
Conservatives in Congress are worse than Charlie Brown getting a football pulled away from them. They are more a trained circus seal who barks for a fish from Republican leaders and does a few tricks to wow the crowd.

Outdated garbage.

Obama is the loser on sequestration.

What exactly does Reagan have to do with anything. Do any of you liberals live in the present?
Ronald Reagan and the 47 Percent

Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who don’t pay federal income taxes as “takers.” But to President Reagan, the godfather of today’s conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.

Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who don’t pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a “sweeping victory for fairness” and “perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.”

Like Clinton lost back in 1995 when the GOP temporarily shut down the government?

As I recall, Republicans came out of that battle as welcome in the public eye as a plague of locusts.

some garbage will never go out of style....

What I am finding is that among conservatives there is too much outrage, piss, and vinegar. It makes our ideas less effective. We have become humorless, angry opponents of the President instead of happy warriors selling better ideas. We are not even selling ideas.

Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.

Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

The modern State of Israel was created by the United Nations.

American liberals were strong supporters of Israel for many years.
