As I recall, you were 'pretty optimistic' about 2012, weren't you??

In fact, you predicted a Rmoney win, right here on Topix.

A good indicator of how ignorant your predictions are.

So, how'd that work out for you and Willard??

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Besides, how does any of that relate to the 2014 election?
As for 2016, Republicans have several viable candidates. Democrats have none other than Hillary, a lot to risk on a 69-year old with a questionable medical history.
Polls show Hillary beats anyone; who've you got? Rand Paul? LOL

Hillary is old and ailing, her hubby Bill is looking like death warmed over__that's what public office at it's highest levels does to people which is why going forward health should be considered no matter ones party affiliation.

Your problem is that without the religious right nutjobs the (R) party can't muster enough votes to win another Presidency and that the moderates/centrists are taking notice.

Frankly, fools like Carol knocking doors while spewing venom is not working anymore.

Gslt agrees with Democrat Realtime only to the extent that the Republicans must stop caving in to the religious right.
Romney and all other elected Republicans should have publicly demanded that Akin withdraw from the race, instead of just suggesting so. Either that or take him on a picnic to Fort Marcy Park.
The 2016 party platform would do well to ignore the abortion issue.
Well, you'd better hurry up and write them a letter; because ever since the election, this is what your leaders have been saying:

Despite the deep unpopularity of fetal personhood bills in 2012, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has again decided to cosponsor the Sanctity of Human Life Act, a bill that gives full legal rights to human zygotes from the moment of fertilization.

Ryan, who reportedly has 2016 presidential ambitions, had to de-emphasize his opposition to abortion without exceptions during the 2012 election to align his position with presidential candidate Mitt Romney. But this year, Ryan has been tapped as a keynote speaker for the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List's sixth annual Campaign for Life Gala, and he is re-upping his support for the most extreme anti-abortion legislation in the country.

Hillary will not be the nominee, perhaps even not a candidate.

Got a backup?

Joe Biden?

Traditional supplemental insurance plans offer Silver Sneakers. Medicare Advantage is simply the Medicare version of an HMO, offering lower premiums than traditional plans. The subsidies will be eliminated by Obamacare, increasing premiums for senior citizens. There is no direct connection between Medicare Advantage subsidies and Silver Sneakers.

And every last one of them is standing firm against Obama on taxes, a subject that actually matters.

Every state already has more than enough laws against violence, regardless of gender. This type of special interest legislation is silly.

What is it with you liberals thinking you're the only ones with a heart and demonize conservatives to the point of hysteria?
We disagree on politics, Lily. Not compassion.
The poor have always been among us. They will continue to be among us. You can't help people who don't want or can't help themselves.

It's not silly to women; nor were the rape comments, or the vaginal probes, or any of the legislation that takes away womens rights, or gay rights, or civil rights.

Get with the program; no one wants that type of legislation anymore
