I'm sure it was all just an innocent mistake. Or a baby seal broke into the control room and mixed up the pictures.

Wait, that puckered anus Santorum is still officially in the race for the nomination?




Even a silly Canadian like me knows that that's Utah, not Nevada.

I am beginning to think that FNC is just having a laugh and not really trying

Romney and/or his people should, if speaking on this, refer to Fox as the beloved 'the mainstream media'. "You know, Fox, MSNBC, these mainstream media outlets..."

FOX's Chris Wallace--who will be moderating tonight's debate in Iowa--on Ron Paul's better-than-ever chances of winning in Iowa (per the Washington Post):
Quote:
Well, the Ron Paul people aren’t going to like my saying this, but to a certain degree it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because, rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he’s not going to end up as the nominee and therefore Iowa won’t count and it will go on.
Really, "the Republican establishment thinks he's not going to end up as the nominee" therefore a win would "discredit" the Iowa caucuses?

Out of curiosity, where did the Tea Party go? How come they aren't out supporting someone? Or was the Tea Party Express strictly for nutjobs like Palin and Cain?

they were out in force big time

you didn't see the polls

Perry blew up big, (before he self imploded)

Cain blew up big, (before his past and true self, imploded his chances)

now Tea Party has to figure out if it is who they are for,
that would be Bachmann or Santorum

or who they are against, if who they are against is a reelected Obama
they will most likely pull the lever for Gingrich, because his record of taking down liberal democrats, is better than the alternative, a Massachusetts Republican

Well I meant after Cain was out, but yes. I too believe they wouldn't vote for someone from Taxachusetts, even if he was a Republican. Just far too many liberal bedfellows.
It's just weird that they haven't organized and come up with something yet. They put all their chips into the wrong baskets.

They really need a Republican Obama and they simply haven't found one yet. Every time one crops up (Jindal, for example) they inevitably say or do something stupid and fuck it up.

Honestly I think the Tea Party was the worst possible thing for the GOP. It cut them in half without actually cutting them in half. I suspect the same will happen to the Democrats (regarding OWS), but it won't happen until after 2012 because they desperately want to keep a Democrat in power. It would be nice to have four groups to choose from though.

Social/Economic Conservative
Social Liberal/Economic Conservative
Social Conservative/Economic Liberal
Social/Economic Liberal


Only in the nomination/race process. I think it would actually be worse in Congress if they didn't have a strict us or them attitude.

you seem to be forming your opinion solely on longevity, instead of accomplishments

Tea Party has one of the greatest political accomplishments ever,

look at the 2010 Congressional elections, and Govenorships wins, etc.

one of the biggest one party landslides ever, going back to the 30s or 40s?


I will admit to being a bit skeptical of the 2008 Obama Nation (Hope - Change) campaign



I can't dismiss their accomplishments in the 2008 elections, across the board.

By 2010m it had collapsed. That does not mean the Obama Nation movement was a mistake.

OWS, is worthless, they are a net loss for the Democrats
if the Democrats want to have success they need a more broad-base movement with more legitimacy, like Obama Nation 2008.

I'm only looking forward, deep. The fact that the Tea Party has yet to put up a worthy candidate or throw their weight behind a current one spells a disaster for the GOP politically. A few months ago I would have said Obama had little chance at reelection, but it seems like the current GOP selection is trying their damnedest to do all of Obama's dirty work in discrediting each other.
I guess this can be said about every election cycle... so ignore this?

Paul is a libertarian in GOP clothing.

I don't agree with him on a lot of things, but I have to hand it to him: he's a retired doctor with no corporate interests, he's not trying to parlay his political career into a private sector windfall, he's the only GOP candidate who is able to project the slightest bit of wisdom or thoughtfulness. No wonder he's being actively ignored by the party and the media.

It's a sad time when we dismiss the only candidate who is willing to speak honestly as "crazy old Dr. Paul".
