The right has so many bad choices to choose from and they still aren’t satisfied, LOL.

Bill Maher came up with the perfect candidate for the tea-baggers…

The tea party splinters the Republican Party. Perhaps even the House is in play once again.

I always liked the sound of Speaker Pelosi. To think, we may get to hear it some more...

The inner circle of the Republican Party needs to wake up. In its selection of John McCain in 2008, it set the stage for the current disaster. McCain served valiantly in the military and I'm sure he voted according to his understanding of what would be best for the country, but he seemed tired and old, and sometimes just plain old on the campaign trail. Although the "Joe the Plumber" episode was what turned me off Obama, McCain's overuse of it made it look as if he had nothing else of value to say.

Thus far, it looks as if the party establishment is ready to crown Mitch Romney as the candidate in waiting. Even I recognize that he is compromised by his Massachussetts health care plan, always referenced by Democrats as the prototype for Obamacare. He also lost the nomination to McCain, an uninspiring candidate, in 2008. Who was it that said "insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?"

Santorum angered Pennsylvania voters who dumped him in 2006 because he did not deem it necessary to respond to non-Republlican voters' efforts to contact him. He also wrote a "family values" book that suggested that women who work outside the home do so to feed their own egos. I used to drive by a day care center on my way to work. Since I had to do it myself, I empathized with the exhausted looking women (and sometimes men) who were carrying little ones and all of their paraphernalia into the building on their way to work.These were not people who would prefer things this way; they were, like me, people who had no choice.(My husband lost one job after 22 years to NAFTA in 1994 and then a subsequent job after ten years when the company closed most of its US operations.)

At this juncture, most people that I have talked to believe that Obama will win a second term, if only by default. The Republican esablishment does not get it, and will persist upon foisting the party loyalist perceived to be the next in line on a very dissatisfied public.

Although TEA Party activism helped the Republicans regain the House, they are now being brushed aside as useful idiots who helped the Republicans achieve their goal and should now sit back and let the REAL players run the show. Boehner was ill-advised in not giving Michele Bachman a leadership position in the House and the snub has not been forgiven or forgotten.(No wonder he can't give a speech without crying through it.)

The party establishment is not looking at non-politicians such as Herman Cain or trying to court young and dynamic people such as Marco Rubio. The very fact that Mr. Cain gave a completely coherent, lengthy speech in perfect grammatical English today, WITHOUT the aid of a teleprompter or notes, speaks volumes to me.

Although I am a registered Democrat, I did make contributions to the Republican Party in 2010. I am tormented now with phone calls and letters. I have my eye on a few likely candidates but have decided to donate directly to them. Mr. Cain is number one on my list. I am not interested in the political establishment. I am looking for someone who is his own man, who possesses leadership qualities, and who says what he means and means what he says. I also think teleprompters should be banned from the face of the earth.

I have heard so many conservatives who just weeks ago had every intention of voting for the republican nominee now say that they will vote for Obama based solely on him single-handedly finding and killing Bin Laden.

They have to admit that they were wrong about Bush’s failed policies that didn’t find Osama for 7 ½ years, and they said that they are happy that President Obama changed everything that Bush was doing, and that is how they were able to find and kill Bin Laden.

Whaaattt??? Changed the way Bush did everything? Man, when it doesn't appear that you can't come up with more BS than your last post, you suprise everyone.

Earth to the phony Marine, Obama USED the policies Bush put in to find bin laden, you dope! He didn't change a thing, he kept the Patriot Act,(Bush) He kept Gitmo's intelligence gathering (Bush), He kept Homeland Security basically intact that Bush put together, and he kept the Generals and intellignece operarators around the world that Bush placed. Nobama even had to fire one of his own appointed Generals and replace him with Petreaus, a Bush appointee!! Bush knew who the better leaders were, didn't he?

YOU are a friggen idiot!

You need to do something about those voices you keep hearing saying conservatives were going to vote for nobama due to the death of bin laden. All the conservatives credit Bush for setting up the intelligence gathering, but we give obama credit for saying go ahead after he was informed by the CIA and Pentagon they knew bin ladens where abouts.

BTB, your claims that obama planned the attack are also false.

No it isn't. The Democratic party is a bunch of coalitions that are spineless selfish cowards who are dangerous. Tea Party Voters do not trust traitors like you still do and people who vote for repubs. And practically all of the people being sent up by the world government people are not acceptable to men and women who really believe in freedom. Freedom is not just the talk. Freedom is the walk. The real walk. Not destroying other nations because they are different. Freedom is us. And we have been convinced that everyone is our enemy. Well most of them are not. We just interfere in their business. And we will get the wars the elitist rulers want. Religions are the bad mantra of the evil and are the rules of the day and that is the genesis this time around. Americans in reality should be ashamed of what our politician shave done. But we are not. And we are suffering domestically now and it will get worse. Gaia won't save us.
