<quoted text>Think your way back thru that nonsense you just posted Galt.
Obama was going to get his ass kicked out of office in 2012 and then hauled to the pillory until he could be tried for treason and crimes against humanity according to your dumbaas. Instead he smacked Mitt down by a record margin.
Are you saying that the Republican centrists didn't notice and eagerly await another line up of (R) POTUS candidates just as sorry as those who showed up last time?
Rick Perry
Ron Paul
Herman Cain
Michelle Bachmann
Mitt Romney
Newt Gingrich
Jon Huntsman
and
Da Donald
and Galt thinks that gangrene infected wound will heal without an amputation?
Hah!
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.

Better than Reagan, the Alzheimers patient who was eating jelly beans and pretending to be President for 8 years.

While Nancy made the decisions by consulting her astrologist!!

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.

Doubling down on your lies again, Nobraina??

Go for it. You didn't read what I posted. Now I will use it to prove you a liar and a fool once again;

"Many private plans require no additional monthly premiums, yet the government pays an average of $849.90 in monthly subsidies to insurance companies for a person on Medicare Advantage, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. That is about 14 percent more than the government spends on people with standard Medicare, according to the nonpartisan Medicare Payment Advisory Commission."

Keywords being "the government paid...."

You've been caught in another lie, Nobraina. Give it up.

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

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.

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.

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.
