Very True, considering she has a Degree from University of Kentucky....she is disqualified from being a mindless conservative!

RINO's, neocons, not conservatives. These two parties are playing a two card monte trick on the public.

The tea party could stan on its own rather than being a parasite that sucks the blood out of the Republican Party. The Dixiecrats did that to the Democrat Party before jumping ship to hijack the Republican Party as the tea Party. Shouldn’t old white guys with that traditional southern mentality (and the women who love them) be entitled to have their own autonomous political party?

You stole their money and they will vote to get it back. And that will include aging progressives who see what they wrought from a depraved minority.

Dude, the Republican party has been taken over by the far fright wingers. Back round checks failed and over 90% of American's were for it, the majority of NRA members were for back round checks. WTF? So the Republican party is now just represent the 10% nutters?
You can blame Democrats in the Senate for that defeat! Some were more worried about keeping their job in 2014 then some BS bill that would have done NOTHING to prevent Sandy Hook. Obama's plan backfired. The bill was suppose to die in the House instead of the Democratic controlled Senate.

Probably bought degree, doesn't mean anything. You can go to Harvard if you pay enough. I hear she's pretty mindless like all Libs.

There is a split, I'll have to admit, but that is what got Clinton elected. It's a good thing he worked out well overall.

What's that supposed to mean? The democrats that jumped ship in the seventies are the neocons in the republican party today. That's about the same time Libertarians began.

Old white guys, LOL. You should listen to your elders. They have experience. I see the same sword rattling today that occurred before VN. Send more military aid!

There is no traditional southern mentality about me at all. You have to stop listening to your own propaganda.

I beg your pardon, but I did not steal money from anyone. Just out of curiosity, however, when you say “they” and “their money,” to whom specifically might you be referring?

Oh yes — and which minority might you be referring to as “depraved?”

Thanks for asking, Teaman.

I mean that the tea party could, and in my opinion should, release its hold on the Republican Party and become a separate political party. I’m frankly amazed that the Republicans have not kicked them out or even bother to bow down to them in the first place. For some reason, the GOP is being the perfect host.

While I surmise from your moniker that you identify strongly with the tea party, I don’t know you personally and therefore wouldn’t presume you to have traditional southern mentality. Who knows? Perhaps you’re a hip young open-minded intellectual college student. That would be great, of course, but then so is bring a wise elder.

If you’re referring to North Korea as a saber rattler, I couldn’t agree more with your assessment.

I'm not sure we're big enough to run as a separate party, although we are running local candidates for the state legislature. They, we, should concentrate on our platform instead of criticizing Obama. We do that locally.

I don't think the republicans are being a host. I think they became us or infiltrated us. Santorum indicating he took one for the team when he voted for Bush's No Child Left Behind should have been a clue to most people. Palin going rogue was a laugh. She ran with a RINO, McCain.

I was referring to Syria in regard to the saber rattling. I don't think we have much of a choice if N. Korea does something stupid. The war is technically active, only a cease fire exists. Hopefully China won't back them this time. I believe Stalin had to persuade Mao the last time.

I still just dont see a difference. The tea party was nothing more than repubs who were pissd that they lost an election that no repub could have won. After 8 years of W, the only race in 2008 was obama/hillary.

It actually began under Bush with his bank bailouts and, later, his auto bailouts. The Santelli rant was over mortgage bailouts. They weren't organized until Santelli helped them network. It did take on a new life over Obamacare. There were some anti Obama elements afterwards. People like Palin, et al, sent the message down the wrong road.

My closest friend here, an Obama supporter, is now complaining about the higher cost of his healthcare and his family doctor is selling off his private practice. All I can do is just grin.
