^ Exactly, this is the kind of talk that INDY and conservatives find "enduring".

Endearing.

The Tea Party set maybe, but I think Rove slamming him on Fox is probably a pretty good barometer of establishment GOP reaction (granted Dubya's camp and Perry's camp have never liked each other). It's just one incident. But his appeal is supposedly predicated on the ability to attract both types.

It was a reference to the Palin thread.

I hope you're right, my fear is that Tea Party has so far gained a pretty strong stranglehold on the GOP.

I think you are wrong on this, the more Rove slams Perry the better it is for him. If Rove endorses Romney, it will probably be all over.

I pretty much live and work in GOP circles. And to a person, no one defends W, or holds him in high regard, at this time.

You Sir have hit the nail right on the head - Rove is (and should be) a hated figure to middle america, the worst kind of elitist ( his only real fans are the media and the country club republicans...if that) - the more the bushites bash Perry and endorse Romney the better it will be for Perry!!

I think he might be a wee bit cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. Just sayin



Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain suggested that impeaching President Barack Obama "would be a great thing to do" on a conference call with bloggers on Tuesday night, Politico reports.

The former CEO of Godfather's Pizza predicted, however, that achieving such a goal would likely prove easier said than done.

"Because the Senate is controlled by Democrats we would never be able to get the Senate first to take up that action, because they simply don’t care what the American public thinks," he said. "They would protect him and they wouldn’t even bring it up," Cain said, citing the administration's position on the Defense of Marriage Act as an impeachable offense."

Comedy gold

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Elvis blared from loudspeakers as Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann emerged from her campaign bus here Tuesday.

So much in politics is theater and, in theater, music matters. But how can any musical choice that involves The King go wrong?

It only can if — as Bachmann did — you play an Elvis song as a birthday tribute. "Before we get started," Bachmann told her audience, at the Beacon, a local eatery, "let’s say ’happy birthday’ to him."

One teeny-tiny problem: Tuesday was the 34th anniversary of Elvis’ death.

No one who had come to Tuesday’s Bachmann rally cared about the minor gaffe.

After Bachmann dished out some political red meat — and ordered up a burger and fries from the Beacon — she took a few questions from reporters. By then, someone had told her that Tuesday was the anniversary of Elvis’ death — not of his birth.

"As far as we’re concerned, he’s still alive," Bachmann said. "Alive in our hearts."

This is pretty funny too

Politico, Aug. 16
Quote:
No joke: Presidential candidate Rick Perry and comedian Stephen Colbert, who last week barraged Iowa voters with advertisements urging voters to support “Rick Parry,” shared the same political committee treasurer--until they didn’t.

Salvatore Purpura, who has represented numerous political committees as treasurer over the years, told POLITICO that he resigned on Thursday as treasurer of Colbert’s super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow. Then, on Monday, Perry--not Parry--formally filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission listing Purpura has his campaign treasurer. “Obviously, there was a potential conflict of interest,” Purpura said. “I told [Colbert lawyer] Trevor [Potter] on Thursday I would not be able to be treasurer anymore.”

Colbert, in an email to POLITICO, praised Purpura’s service. “We’re not surprised. Sal is the best in the business. That’s why we went with him,” Colbert wrote. “We’re happy for Sal and we are even happier that Governor Parry has sent the clear signal of which super PAC he trusts to receive all that unlimited money waiting to pour in on his behalf. Loud and clear, sir. Unofficially, loud and clear.”

...Purpura’s online LinkedIn resume indicates he’s served as treasurer or “director of treasury” for George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign, John McCain 2008 presidential campaign, the US Senate campaign of Carly Fiorina in California and the campaign of Sen. John Boozman (R-AR), among others.

I'm sorry but you can't rail against the "elites" and then get something like this wrong. Elvis' death is Red State 101. Michele Bachmann has been exposed as a fraud in my mind.

Reminds me of Obama in 2008 and his failure to produce one player's name from his so-called favorite baseball team, the Chicago White Sox. But then no one really expects a Messiah to concern himself with such mortal trivialities do they?

It's just a bit of humor, I never said Obama has never made a mistake and he's no "messiah". Bachmann is planning a visit to Graceland, but she said it's on the West Coast so it'll take her a while to get there on her bus

Hey I think the first shot might have been fired at Graceland, and Paul Revere told everyone to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

More like People Over 50 101, which is fine, but no one else really gives a damn. Same with John Lennon.

Today she promised to be the "hombre-ette" to stand for her supporters in the White House. Maybe not a gaffe exactly, but calling yourself a man-ette is just weird.

Did anyone see Anderson Cooper last night-keeping them honest segment about jobs "created by Rick Perry"?

Keeping Them Honest – Anderson Cooper 360 - CNN.com Blogs


Hmmmm...

Greenville, SC (CNN) -- Presidential candidates are known for making promises on the campaign trail.

Republican contender Michele Bachmann told a crowd of supporters in Greenville, South Carolina on Tuesday that she will bring down gas prices when she's president.

"Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again," said Bachmann. "That will happen."

If she is elected, it may be a tough promise to keep.

Gas prices are tied to global oil prices and are not controlled by Washington.

Bachmann did not say specifically how she would help gas prices come down again, but her website says as president, she would ease restrictions on drilling.

I did not see it.

But I know the jobs claim is a total bullshit claim.

There are 25 states that have lower unemployment rates than Texas.

Unemployment Rates for States

Also he (Texas) has not really created new jobs.
He has poached them from other U S States with very weak enviomental laws and 'right to work' laws, that means no minimum wage law.

He should be running for President of Malaysia.
