You elected a Tea bagger Homey. Can you see it now? the president of the United States teabagging all those men. Larry Sinclair did not lie. O'bama did--over and over again.

They keep broadcasting their victory in Virginia, but I wish they link to their sources because what I've seen and read just doesn't back that up. Do you think they really believe that the South won the Civil War? One of "them" said they'd be ashamed if they didn't win by any higher percentage than McAuliffe, but that couldn't be right since baggers all totally lack any sense of shame, imho.

Republican Party Platform of 1960
Some excerpts -

To secure freedom of navigation in international waterways, the cessation of discrimination against Americans on the basis of religious beliefs, and an end to the wasteful and dangerous arms race and to the threat of an arms imbalance in the area.

Under Republican administration, the Government has developed original and constructive programs in many fields—open skies, atoms for peace, cultural and technical exchanges, the peaceful uses of outer space and Antarctica—to make known to men everywhere our desire to advance the cause of peace. We mean, as a Party, to continue in the same course.

We recognize and freely acknowledge the support given to these principles and policies by all Americans, irrespective of party. Standing as they do above partisan challenge, such principles and policies will, we earnestly hope, continue to have bipartisan support.

To this end we will continue to support and strengthen the United Nations as an instrument for peace, for international cooperation, and for the advancement of the fundamental freedoms and humane interests of mankind.
Under the United Nations we will work for the peaceful settlement of international disputes and the extension of the rule of law in the world.

We recognize that firm political and military policies, while imperative for our security, cannot in themselves build peace in the world.

America's growth cannot be compartmentalized. Labor and management cannot prosper without each other. They cannot ignore their mutual public obligation.

Industrial harmony, expressing these mutual interests, can best be achieved in a climate of free collective bargaining, with minimal government intervention except by mediation and conciliation.

Even in dealing with emergency situations imperiling the national safety, ways of solution must be found to enhance and not impede the processes of free collective bargaining—carefully considered ways that are in keeping with the policies of national labor relations legislation and with the need to strengthen the hand of the President in dealing with such emergencies.

In the same spirit, Republican leadership will continue to encourage discussions, away from the bargaining table, between labor and management to consider the mutual interest of all Americans in maintaining industrial peace.

Republican action has given to millions of American working men and women new or expanded protection and benefits, such as:

Increased federal minimum wage;

Extended coverage of unemployment insurance and the payment of additional temporary benefits provided in 1958-59;

Improvement of veterans' re-employment rights;

Extension of federal workman's compensation coverage and increase of benefits;

Legislative assurance of safety standards for longshore and harbor workers and for the transportation of migratory workers;

An increase of railroad workers' retirement and disability benefits.

Correction of defects in the Welfare and Pension Plans Disclosure
Act to protect employees' and beneficiaries' interests.

Upward revision in amount and extended coverage of the minimum wage to several million more workers.

Strengthening the unemployment insurance system and extension of its benefits.

Improvement of the eight-hour laws relating to hours and overtime compensation on federal and federally-assisted construction, and continued vigorous enforcement and improvement of minimum wage laws for federal supply and construction contracts.

Continued improvement of manpower skills and training to meet a new era of challenges, including action programs to aid older workers, women, youth, and the physically handicapped.

Doubtful they would recognize the Republican Party of today

Leaders of the Republican establishment, alarmed by the emergence of far-right and often unpredictable Tea Party candidates, are pushing their party to rethink how it chooses nominees and advocating changes they say would result in the selection of less extreme contenders.

The push comes as the national Republican Party is grappling with vexing divisions over its identity and image, and mainstream leaders complain that more ideologically-driven conservatives are damaging the party with tactics like the government shutdown.

The debate intensified on Wednesday after Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, the deeply conservative Republican candidate for governor of Virginia, lost a close race in which Democrats highlighted his opposition to abortion in almost all circumstances, his views on contraception and comments in which he seemed to liken immigration policy to pest control.

The party leaders pushing for changes want to replace state caucuses and conventions, like the one that nominated Mr. Cuccinelli, with a more open primary system that they believe will draw a broader cross-section of Republicans and produce more moderate candidates.

And it took an Obama bundler to finance a Libertarian candidate that pulled 10 times as many votes than was ever pulled by a Libertarian candidate in Virginia for the Democrat to squeak out a win by the skin of his teeth.
I wonder if there were any of those magic voting machines where not one person in a million pressed the wrong button by mistake.
Wow, the excuses.

If you ran a normal candidate, people would not have opted for the Libertarian.

The truth is that some Republicans chose to vote third party because they did not like their candidate but didn't want to help the Democrats either.

Some Democrats may also have gone that way for the same reason.

The race was a far right whacko VS a far left leaning democrat. It is not unreasonable to see a third party candidate to fair well.

Bt hey, I understand how aTea Party member would need to find excuses why the Tea Party gyt the big smack down on Tuesday. Get used it, more to come on 2014.

Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe’s unexpectedly slim victory in Virginia set off an explosion of recriminations among Republicans on Wednesday, and rather than settling the battle between the GOP’s tea party and business factions, the election appears to have deepened the internal divide.

If lessons emerged from Tuesday’s vote, they were almost instantly lost in the volley of finger-pointing that began even before the polls closed. Republican Ken Cuccinelli II’s narrow loss, despite what opinion surveys had consistently called a comfortable lead for McAuliffe, left the candidate’s camp accusing national party organizations of abandoning their man in the closest major race in the nation this year.

Party officials said it was Cuccinelli who had failed to raise money from mainstream Republican sources skeptical of his hard-line rhetoric and uncompromising conservatism.

“The lesson is that a party divided is going to lose,” said Pete Snyder, a Northern Virginia technology entrepreneur who served as Cuccinelli’s finance chairman.“The Democrats weren’t happy with their candidate, but they were united. Ken Cuccinelli had to deal with Melrose Place.”

6 states controlled by democrats didn't set up exchanges either, what about those losers? There are 20 states with democrat governors and yet only 14 set up exchanges...what you say now?

Wrong.
Health insurance should be an INDIVIDUAL thing.
The government cannot "tax" a person merely for exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right to life.
The government cannot "tax" a person for NOT doing something.
And, ObamaKare isn't about health care. It's only about health insurance. Having health insurance doesn't guarantee anyone they will have health care. If there isn't enough health care assets to cover all the health insurance, Ben Bernanke can't just turn on the printing presses and print up more health care assets, dumbass.
ObamaKare requires young healthy people to buy health insurance. Young healthy people can spend less money paying the Obama tax than it would cost to buy the health insurance. There is a directive to not collect the "tax". Young healthy people will only sign up for ObamaKare when they get sick. The end result will be only people consuming health care will be paying for health insurance. The government will have to subsidize the insurance companies, thus they will have to levy many other taxes to get this money needed to pay for ObamaKare.
An idiot could tell you this, dumbass.
An idiot did tell me this, you.

And its a pi;e of horse crap.

The USSC said they can.
