Yes, he is a Wild and Crazy Guy!
Now we have to get those liberals to quit attacking our rights!
And maybe, just maybe, we can defeat the “Muslim who favors gay rights” President this fall…
It appears that Willard “Mittens” Romney is on his way to a clean sweep; he has taken the lead over “Crazy Rick” Santorum in Michigan.
Even better: we are losing a RINO:
U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) will not run to keep her seat this November, according to local station WGME.
“After an extraordinary amount of reflection and consideration, I am announcing today that I will not be a candidate for re-election to the United States Senate,” Snowe said in a statement issued on Tuesday. “It has been an indescribable honor and immeasurable privilege to serve the people of Maine, first in both houses of Maine’s legislature and later in both houses of Congress.”
Snowe continued, “As I have long said, what motivates me is producing results for those who have entrusted me to be their voice and their champion, and I am filled with that same sense of responsibility today as I was on my first day in the Maine House of Representatives.” She added, “I do find it frustrating, however, that an atmosphere of polarization and ‘my way or the highway’ ideologies has become pervasive in campaigns and in our governing institutions.”
Maybe we’ll be able to get a REAL Republican in that seat!
Oh yes, the milquetoast RINOS will whine about this (I’m looking at YOU, David Brooks):
Politicians do what they must to get re-elected. So it’s not unexpected that Republican senators like Richard Lugar and Orrin Hatch would swing sharply to the right to fend off primary challengers.
As Jonathan Weisman reported in The Times on Sunday, Hatch has a lifetime rating of 78 percent from the ultra-free market Club for Growth, but, in the past two years, he has miraculously jumped to 100 percent and 99 percent, respectively. Lugar has earned widespread respect for his thoughtful manner and independent ways. Now he’s more of a reliable Republican foot soldier.
Still, it is worth pointing out that this behavior is not entirely honorable. It’s not honorable to adjust your true nature in order to win re-election. It’s not honorable to kowtow to the extremes so you can preserve your political career.
But, of course, this is exactly what has been happening in the Republican Party for the past half century. Over these decades, one pattern has been constant: Wingers fight to take over the party, mainstream Republicans bob and weave to keep their seats.
Republicans on the extreme ferociously attack their fellow party members. Those in the middle backpedal to avoid conflict. Republicans on the extreme are willing to lose elections in order to promote their principles. Those in the mainstream are quick to fudge their principles if it will help them get a short-term win.
Oh, cry me a river. Paraphrasing Barry Goldwater: “extremism in defense of my tax cut is no vice.”
And think about it: without rock-ribbed stubborn resistance to President Obama’s plans, we might have compromised and
would have an improved economy President Obama would be much more popular now! It was our stubbornness that gave us a shot to begin with, so shut your mealy-mouth yap.
Columbia, South Carolina (CNN) — Newt Gingrich won Saturday’s South Carolina GOP presidential primary, marking a stunning turnaround for a candidate who finished fourth in Iowa and New Hampshire and whose campaign had been left for dead — again — by observers just weeks ago.
With about 95% of polling places reporting, Gingrich had 40% of the vote, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney getting 27% and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum getting 17%. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas had 13%. Based on early returns and exit polls, CNN projected Gingrich the winner.
So for the overall race for the Presidential nomination for God’s Own Party we have:
The Papist Hall Monitor: 1 (Iowa)
The Cultist: 1 (New Hampshire)
The Serial Adulterer: 1 (South of Carolina)
Who, oh who, will be the Anointed One?
What is troubling: why do southern states have such a large say? Really; we are talking about nominating someone who can not only beat Barack HUSSEIN Obama but also keep the prices of our stock portfolios high.
Why can’t the RNC make up some reason to strip the delegates away from the southern states and we just nominate who we want to? It will be no problem getting the South to vote with us in the general; we can plant some black guy in a Fox News press team and arrange for our
chosen elected candidate to tell him off on national television. That will wrap up the southern states right there!
I don’t get it: why is this ad being run in a REPUBLICAN campaign? I don’t see the problem here. Since when does a Republican care what a bunch of toothless poor old people think?
“Killing jobs for big financial rewards…”…what exactly is wrong with that????
Well, it appears that Willard “Mittens” Romeny won the New Hampshire Republican primary; he has about 37 percent of the vote. He leads the Crazy Old Man (Ron Paul) who got 23 percent and the Democrat (Jon Huntsman) who got 17. The Papist and the Adulterer are tied at 10 apiece and the Lush got 1 percent.
I was on the road using the socialist Interstate Highway System and was in the old Confederacy for a while. We have to do something about allocating the highway lanes; it just isn’t right that people who pay taxes on 100K or more a year have to share lanes with people who are too poor to put a proper muffler on their vehicles. Perhaps we should get special license plates that allow us “real Republican” lanes to use or something.
Nevertheless, I heard and saw some encouraging things.
The likely GOP likes to fire people!
Sure, technically this isn’t as good as it sounds; he was talking about people having the right to switch insurance plans if they don’t like the service that they are getting. Of course, one only needs insurance if one is sick and too poor to pay out of pocket and if you are in that category, no one is going to insure you anyway…but really, most insurance bills are less than 30K and who cares for people too poor to afford a 30K medical bill?
Now back to my Southern trip: Yeah, I needed to get extra shots:
But I saw something very encouraging:
Yeah, this was a Western Sizzling and who really needs to eat cheap meat and dried out stuff in the “buffet” selection? But I love it that they are encouraging the poors (and non-rich) to Love the Lord! Church is good….and the non-Episcopalians need somewhere to eat. And the more places that encourage the fatties and their squalling brats (aka Southern Baptists)to patronize them, the less likely I am going to have to be around them.
So Santorum is going after Romney!
Oh wait…the ad says “Newt Gingrich”. Meh…”non-Romney”. Same difference.
Ok Iowa has come and gone and we have
Mitt Romney (cultist) 30,015 24.6%
Rick Santorum (Papist) 30,007 24.5%
Ron Paul (crazy) 26,219 21.4%
Newt Gingrich (adulterer) 16,251 13.3%
Rick Perry (drunkard) 12,604 10.3%
Michele Bachmann (idiot) 6,073 5%
Jon Huntsman (Democrat) 745 0.6%
So let us look at this: what about Mr. Paul?
Strengths: interesting social views on undesirables.
Weaknesses: not only does he want us to not invade other countries, but he is against the war on drugs:
The war on drugs is exactly how we can keep the undesirables in jail!!!!
Mr. Santorum He sent out this letter to potential supporters this morning:
It’s Now or Never for Conservative voters. We can either unite now behind one candidate and have a conservative standard bearer in 2012, or have the GOP establishment choose another moderate Republican who will have a difficult time defeating Barack Obama in November.
I don’t think that’s what you want. Neither do I. My name is Rick Santorum, and I am the only authentic, passionate conservative who can unite the GOP.
I need an URGENT contribution of at least $35 today to unite conservative voters and win the Republican nomination.
We shocked the world last night in Iowa. We did it with a coalition of conservatives, Tea Party members, and values voters who recognized that my successful conservative record gives the GOP the best chance to defeat Barack Obama.
No more sitting on the sidelines. Now is the time to act or get stuck with a bland, boring, career politician who will lose to Barack Obama. Tomorrow will be too late. Will you unite with me, merge conservative support, and help us hold our banner high? Your contribution of $35, $50, or even $75 can make sure this happens.
The next test is New Hampshire … a state Mitt Romney has campaigned in for over four years. This is why I need your immediate support. I’m counting on conservatives around America to respond to this call for help. If we are divided in New Hampshire, we will lose this opportunity to keep the momentum.
I will be the most conservative President since Ronald Reagan. I am not going to Washington to blend in and hope people like me. I am running to dismantle the Obama Agenda and lead–like Reagan did.
The Washington Post said, “Rick Santorum was a tea-party kind of guy before the tea-party even existed.” As a conservative U.S. Senator from the swing state of Pennsylvania, I led the overhaul of welfare that moved millions from welfare to work. I authored the bill banning partial-birth abortion, and I passed legislation that protected America from Iran’s growing nuclear threat.
If you want a President who will stand up for conservative values, who is consistent on the issues, and who has a record to back it up, then I need you to join my campaign.
I need you to join me today. Right now. Not tomorrow or next week. If you want to roll back the Obama Agenda with a real conservative, this is your chance. The future of our country depends on what conservatives like you do in the next 72 hours.
Will you join us today with a generous contribution of whatever you can afford?
I give Republicans the best option to put a full-spectrum conservative in the White House. Help me make history!
P.S. I went from longshot to the Iowa Caucus “surprise candidate” overnight. Now conservatives must unite or be defeated. Please donate today and take a stand with my campaign. Join the fight!
Mr. Santorum is right about the Satanic Scientists:
I am outraged that scientists use scientific concerns to guide their research and are worried about harming animals (see: no morals at all! This is an example of proper Republican attitudes towards animals)
The church should determine what gets researched! That has worked so well in the past!
Mr. Santorum is right about abortion too:
Government should stay out of our lives…and in the uterus of women!
Oh sure, the LIE-berals will bellyache that Mr. Santorum’s wife had a kind of abortion that he would outlaw, sans exception, for others. But that doesn’t matter; for a true Republican, well, we DESERVE different rules because Jesus loves us! Why is that so hard to understand?
Mr. Romney’s record is a bit more mixed:
But…Mr. Romney would probably be better for our investment portfolios which…when all is said and done…is the main thing for a Republican…no?
