" The Reps would be best to stand a Tea Party candidate in the next election. It doesn't matter if the candidate loses."

Damn Baker beat me to it.

Looks like Ted Cruz or Paul Rand can make it a self-fulfilling prophesy.

Clearly Moderates aren't working, and we hear all about the tea party ideals being the next great thing on the US right. Let them have their moment... it either removes the distraction for the Republicans, shifts the debate, or suddenly works and small-government values can have their chance to shine (or not as the case may be...)

Remember, I say this as someone who doesn't live there or gets to vote there.

As long as you not invading or polluting up here, it doesn't matter too much to me who you elect.

I liked the old day with a republican in White House. Then the deficits don't matter.

By 2016, the economy will probably be in the dumps. Therefore, Hillary has zero chance of winning.


Even though I agree with the first statement, it doesn't necessarily follow that Hillary will get hurt. Democrats will always blame Republicans even when they're the ones at fault.

Case in point, take a look at Detroit. Unions and Democrats have been running that city for decades, yet when it finally went bankrupt, liberals blamed..........REPUBLICANS!

That's right, libs like Ed Schultz and Melissa Harris Perry actually blamed Republicans for Detroit's downfall. Talk about insanity! And the sad part is that there are probably a lot of low information voters out there who believe it. *headshake*

I like the one where a couple in their 50's is painting
the bedroom and the woman is up on the step ladder
while the old man ogles her fanny. He just can't stand
it, the ass of the woman he's been married to for 35
years turns him on so much, he has to have sex RIGHT
NOW. Thank god for the blue pill, that costs $25 a pop,
on average. I just looked it up, $125 for 5 Viagara's at
Walgreens. Well worth it if you're 57 and can't wait..

LOL

This is not the Viagra thread, EB.

Or maybe it is.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

We're talking about crazy old conservative white guys...might as well talk about their medications as well?

Just because Ted Cruz called me POPS, does not mean I am old.

My only question is who the Libertarian party is going to throw up there this time, and if they can get more than 1% of the popular vote. I really was hoping Gary Johnson would reach the 2-3% range, and he came in with 0.99%.

If we manage to break the two-party hegemony in my lifetime, I'll be ecstatic. Although with the winner-take-all system in the US, it will just be 2 different parties. The only question is who is going to succeed the GOP.



As long as they nominate people like Wayne Root as VP they will be considered a joke.

Ugh, 2 of my least favorite people. Schultz is a joke and Perry thinks everyone is a victim and is racist. Just once I would like to see her put on a guest who doesn't agree with her on everything.
