First off its comforting to know that there are a few democrats that still like women.
that said jill kelly and her sister are 2 smokin hot babes and these guys sure have better taste than Clinton did.
Looking at them it brings to mind that 2 heads are better than one......
anyhow while the 4 star genital was busy texting his harem hundreds of American soldiers died he was supposed to be leading.
He leadership failed them and the guy who was supposed to be in charge failed him and imbeciles just put this ineffectibve leadership back in office.
When I say imbeciles I mena the Republican leadership as much as the fruity democrats.
I blame a clueless Republican party, it isnt their appeal to a White platform that hurt them rather its their save the starving rich stupidity that gutted them.
These morons figured they could treash Ron Paul voters and that they could wave the boogey man of Obama and that alone would be enough to swell their ranks with a mob carrying pitchforks to the White house dinner party.
these inept dorks thought that their core voters would vote for an east coast little rich boy who had an ivy league title and spends his day golfing with biff and the gang. Who picked 10 dual citizenship Israelis to snuggle up to Americas military secrets. Now they drag up the dregs they sponsored instead of White people and figure they can become like diverse democrats and save the starving rich, Reince Preibus is an asshole and should be fired immediately he will never win an election he couldn't even deliver Wisconsin his home state. Wisconsin with a vp from Wisconsin, Wisconsin with a smashing republican victory only a few months earlier. What a Hopeless imbecile.

Amazing. Almost your entire post is fantasy. bush a centrist???? No, bush was an extreme right wing radical. He was fanatic by all measures. Those on the left and those in the center opposed him strongly. Those on the right only call him centrist, or leftist because after pushing all those right wing fantasies, the results were horrible. The right even agrees the results were very bad, so they say he just wasn't far enough to the right. It was the results, the criminality that alienated many in his own party.

OK, perhaps I simply missed that this post was satire. Come on, you meant it as satire right????

Morons like you are the problem. You didn't win the election, we handed it to you with a third party candidate and a million and a half conservatives staying home because they were tired of being ignored. Obama was down nine million voters. If your way was the way, they would not have stayed home.

??? You really think that 1% outnumbers 99%? If they were makers instead of takers, they wouldn't be called the idle rich. They are obviously the takers, because you can see what they have taken. The workers have not taken much, because as you can see, they don't have much.

Oh yeah, Romney lost because he wasn't conservative ENOUGH! Keep thinking that, and you'll hand it to Hillary or Gov Cuomo in 2016 as well.

I suggest you nominate Rick Santorum in 2016 and find out what the country thinks of a "true conservative"......

Romney is not conservative. At least not a constitutional conservative. The guy is a globalist who looks out for his own interest and his own pockets. Just like Obama.

This is why Romney got his ass kicked. 14M less people showed up to vote. I would argue that is due to the lack of difference between the 2 morons.

So you believe that the teabagger wave in 2010 was not a conservative win, but a matter of the Obama Democrats staying at home?

Elections are won by those who show up. Republicans had four years to gin up dissatisfaction with the Democrats, and Lord knows they made every effort.

But they failed to make the case, and didn't motivate a large enough base. Period.

And what about the Democrat takers?

Are you willing to trade corruption for corruption?

Do you even know what Patrick Leahy-D is trying to do?

Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants
http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57552225-38...

Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans' e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files.

A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans' e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law.

CNET has learned that Patrick Leahy, the influential Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, has dramatically reshaped his legislation in response to law enforcement concerns. A vote on his bill, which now authorizes warrantless access to Americans' e-mail, is scheduled for next week.

You do understand that this is a violation of the constitution, Amendments 4 and 5 right?

republicans...the party of people who work for a living and pay taxes.
Democrats...the party of moochers and tax takers, who sit around waiting on their check, after it has been forcibly removed from the people who actually pay taxes.

Now that was funny. Thank you for the laugh. That was about as funny as the USF fans putting up on Craig's List unused USF timeouts from the USF/Miami game this past weekend.

Bush is not and was not a centrist. He was not a right wing guy like some try to say, he was not conservative, he was not a liberal in classic meaning of the word.

Bush was a authoritarian globalist that looked out for his own interest over that of the people and restrictive nature of the constitution.

To think that people like Bush, whether Daddy or Baby Boy, or guys like Obama/Romney are centrist is laughable at best. They all represent the globalism mentality. Just look at their constitution violating laws and executive orders.

But anyways, thank you. I needed that laugh.

Not sure if it was laughable or something I should have cried over because the thought of Bush being a centrist is just sad.

Here is some homework for you. Read the constitution, then Common Sense, and maybe throw in there The age of Reason while you are at it.

Ok, I am going to take a part your statement here. Seems like you are highly brainwashed in DNC talking points and shivers up Chris Matthew's legs. I think they make a cream for that.

First of all, it appears you do not know history. The Tea Party movement started back in 1994 in Texas as a protest against Clinton's higher taxes on the middle class. Since then, the Tea Party has been completely taken over by establishment Republicans. The so called "elites" and those in favor of a Globalist ideal that lines their own pockets.

For the most part, this correct unless your are talking about the President's election. This is where no matter who the people running for President, the system is flawed. The electoral college needs complete reform. A tie in to the popular vote. Electoral college votes should not be able to be given to any candidate until the popular vote is complete. For instance, in several states with less than 1 % of the voting total counted and 5 minutes after the polls closed, electoral votes were being handed out.

Do you see the issue with that? If those votes went to Romney you would have been screaming. But since they went to Obama, your still OK with it?
PooPoo Platter wrote:

Actually this is only a small bit true. Very little actually. The Republican establishment disenfranchised their own base by putting up Romney. If you remember some of my posts from the primaries, I stated, "If the R's put up Romney as their nominee, Obama wins." And sure a shit, what happened?

Looking at what the Republican party did to the third party access and what the establishment did to states like Maine in trying to boycott them from even attending the convention showed exactly how they disenfranchised millions of their own voters.

But, you do not see that apparently. Just keep re-iterating what Chris Matthew's is spewing on MSNBC. Do not have free though or critical thinking, they will tell you what to believe.

*sigh*

I think it is time you do some research on what Globalism is.

When you learn what Globalism is and what it does to national GDP and national soverignity, you may stop the D versus R game and realize the nonsense you are spewing is nothing more than DNC talking points.

Think for yourself, do your own research. Stop repeating what TV tells you.

Still playing the D versus R game. Learn what Globalism is. And link the bill, and I will show you exactly who voted for what.

You will then begin to see that it is both the Republicans and the Democrats.
