    Disaster is an understatement !!

    You can thank none other than the TBagers and the Christian Talaban who 'weeded' out even the possiblitiy of a Moderate Republican. This talaban like group want to make sure their ideology gets stamped on all candidates or else. Yes Sir Reee Bring our nation back to God, and who are they leaning toward? the war mongers among them, so I guess its war for jesus !! How damn pathetic !! LOL

    I think this is a sad state of affairs and the whole world is laughing on one hand and fearful on the other, what a spectacle.

    My favorite part:

    "Have you had a chance to look at John McCain's research operation on Mitt? Wow. And let me assure you, that thing has been supplemented, expanded, and annotated. God only knows about the Obama people -- they've got a billion dollars! And how about my friends over at American Bridge, the Democrat-leaning political action committee? Clearly Mitt is merely in the beginning of this tax-return, financial-disclosure, Cayman Island (and God only knows what else) fiasco."

    This disaster is more than just this election....

    Republicans lost 3 out of 5 last Presidential elections, and 4 out of 5 if you count popular votes and not victories declared by the Supreme Court.

    And how ironic that the reason the Republicans find themselves in this mess: Gingrich is still flailing away at Romney because of Newt's $5million cash infusion from some right-wing billionaire.
    Which would have been illegal (donations used to have a cap on them) until the conservatives on the Supreme Court decided that "corporations are people" and "money is speech."
    A few weeks ago Romney agreed that "corporations are people"... I wonder if he still agrees with that, now that he's getting his ass kicked in SC?

    Thank you, conservatives, for messing up your own nomination campaign.

    You got this right !!! And a hell of a great job of messing up their nomination process they did. Thumbs up to them !!!!


    They are assuring us that Obama will get in, and that's cause for relief, because any one of these trigger happy bible thumpers would be dangerous if in charge of the red bomb button.

    Oh this election is just getting juicier by the day! It's like watching snakes bathing in piranha infested waters.

    Luscious. Simply luscious!

    I actually find articles like this extremely amusing because the liberals are getting very ahead of themselves -- practically ordering their tickets for Obama's 2nd Inauguration Ball before the GOP has even had their 3rd state primary. Cart before horse much? So much can, and surely will, change in the months to come, and even if the GOP primaries keep the actually nominee a mystery for months, this actually may play out to have proven to be a good thing -- for the GOP, and for Americans. No one on either side should be feeling too confident right now.

    Aren't you at least a little embarassed by how obviously bought and paid for most of these candidates are by the various lobby's, corps and the SuperPac funds?

    Take Gingrich, He got $5 million from the wealthy Adelson who Is a Dual Citizen Israeli, who strongly supports the far right Likud Party of Netanyahu and even pays for the weekly pro Likud/Netanyahu Paper in Israel and now is on the verge of writing a check for millions more to Gingrich because of his good performance in SC. Tonight in his winner's speech he referred to Israeli issues about 5 to 7 times, no one is fooled, Gingrich wants another several million dollar check. And we are supposed to be impressed ? NO WAY--- I don't want anyone in the White House that talks pro war shit in order to get his Millions to run his campaign on.

    Can anyone say this about Ron Paul ? Nope !!

    PS. Sadly Obama is quite obviously bought by some pretty big lobby's himself. Banks and Wall street for instance.

    Not in the least...Why should I be embarrassed? This is typical election year antics. It's happens on both sides. Fortunately, the American people are smarter than many give them credit for. They can weed through all the muck, a GOP candidate will emerge, the election cycle will kick in gear, AND it will be nasty -- no real shocker there.

    Unless they have someone heretofore unknown in the wings to add to the crop, the entire field of GOP contenders is each carrying huge baggage.

    One factor being forgotten is the Republican nominee will be running against an incumbent with huge negatives according to numerous polls. Talk about baggage. So far Obama has been in campaign mode for months while the Republican focus has been on the primaries. Wait until the real campaign starts. Enjoy yourselves now with all your smugness, because the coming months will not be pretty.

    What political candidate doesn't have baggage? It comes with the territory. Candidates get saddled with "baggage" even when there isn't any. It's the nature of the beast.

    Serious? Everything he has been doing for months has been aimed at trying to keep his job, including all the trips at taxpayer expense.

    You're joking right? I'm not sure if Obama has actually stopped campaigning since 2006. As for the DNC, you can barely turn on the TV without the she devil of condescension, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, spouting at the mouth. They are in full campaign mode.

    Meanwhile the whole damned mess keeps anyone from discussing actual issues - let alone coming up with solutions that both sides (extremes excluded) can work on.

    Dividing the nation more and more is just short of treason.

    That is exactly what the incumbent has been doing continuously, from the time he shut out Republicans in the health care discussions, even losing the Senators from Maine. The "post-partisan" was never able to rise above blaming the "other side made me do it". When there were objections, his retort was "I won". He had the bully pulpit and could have risen above it, effectively engaging the opposition and circumventing them if required, going right to the people with positive messages. But he didn't do it, relying on his Chicago political background instead. Reasonable chance he will pay the price he so justly deserves.
