=====
Kinzinger, 34, is airing TV and radio commercials attacking Manzullo's voting record, trying to portray him as a big spender.

But Manzullo is firing right back at Kinzinger with his own attack ads accusing the rookie congressman of being one of the biggest-spending GOP freshmen in Congress.

Manzullo says Kinzinger used the Tea Party's help to get elected, but then turned his back on the conservative movement once he took office.

"That's why 12 conservative organizations have endorsed me and none have endorsed him — because he's not a conservative," said Manzullo.

In a bit of a twist from what's happening elsewhere in the country, Tea Party groups are backing the veteran, Manzullo, while much of the GOP establishment, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, is supporting the relative newcomer, Kinzinger.

Nahhhh....you don't say....the GOPTEA Party is filled with phoney conservatives who claim they are "conservative"? Naaaaaahhh....you don't say...

Lulz....they ALL spend. Who has the plans to increase revenue to pay down the debt?

2012 the year of Republicans eating their own.

The ONLY one SACRED that they won't eat is Rush Limbaugh.

To be honest, who can blame them? That bloviating fatass is so laced with drugs, you get a contact buzz just being in the same room!!!

We all knew it was never really about spending. Heck the de facto leader of the GOPTEA Sarah Palin RAISED taxes, spent the bridge to nowhere funds, AND didn't even bother to abolish the Alaska Permanent Fund that redistributes the wealth from the oil and gas companies to all the citizens of Alaska....from which Sarah and her own family benefits.

It was never about spending...or taxes.

Manzulla has been in Congress for decades. He went there with very little money and will go home soon a very rich man. Kinzinger hasn't learned how to steal yet. Give him 4 more years, then vote him out. Do not leave any of them there long enough to make a career out of graft, and bribery.

Hillary said Obama was not a citizen. Joe Biden said he was not qualified or experienced enough to be president. How could your own be so right, but to loons so wrong.

Hillary was bribed with the job of Secretary of State if she didn't tell any more about the Kenyan kid. Same with Biden. Obama promised him the Veep position if he won, and Joe stopped berating him.

It happened here in Ohio. May the best person win. I'm tired of politicians being gaining districts just becaus they've been around for so long. Maybe now they'll do more work to earn votes.

There is not to be all day long talking about RomneyCare as one single issue, for there is none because Romney is not the president yet, and thus has not imposed and enacted on any healthcare to anybody, as compared to Obama. Most importantly , the Obama people are just one or few-issue ones, by only talking about economy, abortion, pornography, or war-mongering option to Iran.

There are many issues, such as national security, which means both Obama and Santorum know none, whereas Obama has learnt nothing on the job and it will be a destructive way of time and causes more hampering to real people’s needs. Obama’s too close association with the Chinese Communists and letting Communist visitor enter Pentagon building around February, 2012, do cause national security breaching. For Obama people, as you people don’t even get to see the Pentagon , since when can you people be allowed to let foreigners of Communists enter a military building? After all, there is a great urgency to clean the mess from the destruction way done by Obama, so that some people may be even able to get in the Pentagon, to have jobs to clean the stairways and washrooms of Pentagon.

Fundamentally, there are much more than that, because Romney is not a one-single issue man. That tells, unlike Santorum, that Romney can easily get on issues done with marvellous success, for all concerning, for matters ranging from national security, foreign policy and military standpoint throughout the world, United Nations, Human Rights Organizations, the uprising debts , jobs and economy, freedom of consumer choices, freedom of anything for all people, women’s rights and choices, equal opportunity position benefits, border control and illegal population management, industrial production and efficiency, commerce and business enterprising, medical health care, hospitals, transportation, education, entertainment, housing, new energy innovation and more.

Santorum is at this time full of confusion and knowing nothing, while Obama is full of everything of failure.

As US is going downhill resulting from Obama’s erosive acts of conduct and Obama is also downgrading middle class and working people all the way, in conjunction with Santorum’s inability stand in most everything, there needs all people concerning, to move forward for a great future, only with Romney supporting.

Mormons,(as having faith of God as Christianity faith, unlike other religions or like Muslims where Obama is interested to associate with and sympathize), do make great president(s), just as Romeny does as a great doer, definitely in modern times of life for all the people obviously .

LOL!!! Come Wednesday, at least one of Illinois' teabagger Representatives ic Congress will be a lame duck!

In November, Joe Walsh will get his hind quarters kicked by an Iraq veteran who lost both legs in combat! And probably one or two more teabaggers lose at the polls, in their freshly reapportioned Districts.

mormons gives such president as Bush the II was, because this mormon is just such guy.´Supported by international lobbysts, war monger. It will be not USA after end of his term of office. Remember yoy don´t vote for this candidate, you vote for his master of campaign, who makes his program ( it means he puts hipocrisy - lies in heads of simple voters ).
The only good candidate is Ron Paul and he should be president. He is proamerican, he has good program.

There is no war monger as big as Obama. He not only kept the Irag, and Afghanistan war going, but the expanded the Afghan way, and gave air support to the rebels in Egypt, and Lybia. All 3 countries he touched was handed over to the Muslim Brotherhood.
