    First.

  2. Annie says:

    First!

  3. Annie says:

    Oh, poo…Sorry, Cory -

  4. Annie says:

    Do we really need a poll to tell us Bob Casey is winning his senate seat this year?

  5. Apologetic California says:

    I never heard of the Republicans running against Casey.

  6. Robbie says:

    Current headline on Politico

    “Mitt insists he wins by losing”

  7. Annie says:

    Santorum has jetted-off to a working vacation in Puerto Rico. Don’t know how much good it’ll do him vote-wise. Their governor is for Romney, two uncommitted delegates have already committed themselves to Romney (one to Gingrich), and Romney is ahead in P.R. polls.

  8. Annie says:

    Robbie – Mitt does win, even though he didn’t come in first. He won the delegate count for yesterday. Heck, in Mississippi he tied the delegate number that Santorum received.

  9. Cory says:

    Thread rule:
    Give your opinion on which of these is more of a ‘sin’:
    1) Poor grammar
    2) Pre-marital sex

  10. michael corleone says:

    Mittbots are in pure meltdown mode today.

    All I hear is “This does not compute, this does not compute.”

    Romney is a liberal. And I, like the majority of the R party, does not like voting for liberals.

  11. michael corleone says:

    Mitt is about to get his @ss kicked in Missouri on Saturday.

    The only place he can get delegates is in Asia.

  12. pitchaboy says:

    Santorum did the song and dance yesterday; Romney won more delegates quietly.Romney has taken a page out of Obama’s 2008 campaign; if Santorumand Romney go one on one, this fight will turn out like 2008. The base will vote for Santorum who will ultimately lose the race.

  13. Emerica says:

    Santorum Agenda item #34

    Americans should not be allowed to have too many tattoos.

    This part was added to his “Fighting to Make America America Again” agenda after he noticed Allen Iverson playing in the NBA and he realized that so many tattoos could cause someone to have rebellious or gay thoughts.

  14. GF says:

    Poor form, Cory; you posted on the old thread after posting here and did not inform us that a new thread was at hand.

    Boo!

  15. GF says:

    11- Would that be in reference to the actual American citizens in American states and territories such as Hawaii, Guam, the Marianas and Am. Samoa? I should hope that someone (even a Mormon) could win a slate of delegates form areas where real American citizens (even those of ASIAN descent) are actually allowed to vote. Not just their white counterparts either.

    Not saying you are racist, but that argument about “overseas” delegates is old, tiring, and smells racist by any standard. Leave that to the Paulbots to whine about imperialist delegates from the swarthier places we “colonized.”

  16. Cory says:

    Guilty.
    10 lashes.

  17. GF says:

    I forgot to add the obligatory “Ooh, Ooh! Casey’s under 50%! We can beat him!”

  18. NYCmike says:

    18.I forgot to add the obligatory “Ooh, Ooh! Casey’s under 50%! We can beat him!”

    -Well, shouldn’t he be polling at like 55%? What if, by extreme luck, one of these guys is like a Ron Johnson-type candidate? He could run a campaign like Toomey and/or Corbett. Isn’t that a possibility?

  19. NYCmike says:

    XX

    15.Poor form, Cory; you posted on the old thread after posting here and did not inform us that a new thread was at hand.

    Boo!

    -Hey GF,
    Were you over there wondering, “Where did everybody go? Someone usually responds by now?” I have been there before, my friend.

  20. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/why-romney-cant-win/

    Santorum is more electable.

    Many articles like this get the essential point Rombots do not, that this man Mittens is a walking class warfare poster child for Obama’s team to rip apart.

    He’s tailor made.

    Only Santorum can win against Obama because he has cross over vote appeal and the ability to connect emotional with audiences, Mitt is inauthentic, and the election is a replay of 2008 without McCain’s counter strengths.

    Romney has almost zero positives to bring to the table as a nominee.

    We need Newt to drop out, and for a 1 on 1 where Rick has a shot. Then, we need a 2nd ballot floor fight to take this thing away from loser Romney.

    Go Rick!

  21. Annie says:

    michael corleone – Stop being a “Gingrich.”

  22. Scott says:

    FOX News just released a poll.Romney is down to Obama by 4,which is a 1 point improvement for Romney from last month.Santorum is down 11 as he was last month.
    Obama’s approval rating is 47% down 1 from last month.His disapproval rating stayed the same,month to month at 45%.
    The FOX News Poll is a D+3 1/2.

  23. Annie says:

    Dingleberry – You never cease to amaze me with the nonsense you come up with. There is a poll out today that shows that in a one-on-one between Santorum and Romney, with Gingrich out of the race, Romney wins by an even bigger margin.

  24. Annie says:

    A “Gingrich” is a vindictive bore.

  25. Tim says:

    There is just no compelling evidence to convince that Santorum is the more electable candidate.

    Actually, the evidence would point more toward Santorum winning no more than 15 states, with less than 150 EV’s. This would indicate a popular vote loss of at least 11 million, and probably more.

    Just imagine what that would do to the GOP, down-ballot.

    Of course, I could be wrong. But, I just don’t think I am, in this case…..

  26. GF says:

    I was, NYC, though the conversation continued for a good fifteen minutes. I would refresh quicker were I at home, but the server here sucks, so I load the homepage sparingly let I wait all afternoon. I open the comments in a new page but without the colourful header i.e. I click on the “comments” tab, not the “display on a seperate page” tab; saves loads of time on these cr@ppy government servers. It’s even worse on a ship at sea.

    I am hopeful for a Ron Johnson scenario, but I won’t hold my breath. Candidates like RJ come along only so often, and WI was emminently more winnable than PA with Zero topping the ticket and pulling every available corpse out of Philly with him. That said, I may be cautiously optimistic if future polling bears it out.

  27. janz says:

    When you really analyze these latest primaries, they look less and less terrible. AL and MS have an 80% and 83% evangelical populations respectively, which works out to 8 out of 10 voters being a part of this wheel house suited to Santorum. Even with these odds, Romney was able to pull off a competitive contest there, coming in a close 3rd (in percentages and people count) to 2nd place Gingrich and 1st place Santorum.

    Plus, in the 2008 GE, evangelicals came out in droves and still only comprised 28% of the people voting in that election cycle. So, this southern advantage Santorum may have, while not only not impressive in it’s lead over Romney, is also not really significant in the long term ratio of voters in the GE looming ahead.

    I can understand all the Santorum naysayers gloating about yesterday’s win. However, it is a superficial moment, at best. So, I’m just going to let them have their short span of time in the sun, as Romney, in deliberate tortoise fashion, is, IMO, making his way to the nomination. I also think that the more that Santorum and Gingrich want to vindictively stall this process, in the end it will reflect badly on them, as being spoilers and sour grape candidates who could not bow out gracefully when the tea leaves saw no avenue to win without lots of chaos involved.

  28. GF says:

    Mike, since you are apparently up there, have you seen the info about the NY redistricting plan via the judge? I talked about it last thread, but it is not set in stone yet. Could be good for us in the long run.

  29. Robbie says:

    I was right.

    Time is reporting Ron Paul has let it be known to the Romney campaign he is willing make a deal for his delegates.

    I wrote last week one of the ways Romney would ensure he cleared 1144 was to cut a deal with Paul for his delegates.

    Of course, I was blasted, but Paul is now dealing. We’ll have to see if Paul’s delegates abide by a deal though. Sounds like Rand Paul might be the VP.

  30. Robbie says:

    Robbie – Mitt does win, even though he didn’t come in first. He won the delegate count for yesterday. Heck, in Mississippi he tied the delegate number that Santorum received.

    Comment by Annie — March 14, 2012 @ 6:22 pm

    That’s an awesome slogan, isn’t it? I can keep on losing, but you’re still going to have to love me. What a slogan.

  31. MFG says:

    From a previous thread:

    Alright

    Three swing voters:

    1. Cleveland, OH
    A 26 year old woman with two children; her husband has deserted her he pays no alimony or child support she works two jobs to make ends meet

    2. Orlando, FL
    A 36 year old woman finally left her husband due to physical abuse and his alcoholism; she has two sons 12 and 10 she just got back to work after being laid off for six months

    3. Denver, CO
    A 25 year old single mother of two who has never married but who has recently graduated form college and landed a nice job she is proud of herself and beginning to get optimistic about what is possible in her life

    All three are registered voters

    All three dislike Obama’s handling of the economy
    =================================================

    All three hear what Rick Santorum has said about them:

    “single mothers are raising criminals”
    “single mothers need their asses kicked”
    =================================================

    What do you think will happen when these voters go into the voting booth?
    How do you think these people will feel about the Republican Party?
    What do you think the gender gap will be in November if we nominate a psychopath who has uttered statements like this?
    ==================================================
    Discuss

  32. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    Santorum and Romney, with Gingrich out of the race, Romney wins by an even bigger margin.

    Gee, kinda amazing that Romney

    a) spends tons of cash, almost solely on bashing Santy, despite being inevitable and

    b) His team is doing anything and everything to keep Newt in the race.

    You are unbelievable naive (typical for Romney voters!) to believe Mittens at ANY TIME (ESPECIALLY A FEW WEEKS AGO)has ever wanted a one on one with Sweater Vest.

    And, natch, all of Rick’s advisers are all so stupid they want Newt out, too, against their OWN interests…

    Wow…

  33. MFG says:

    Address #32 all you Santorum blowers…

  34. MFG says:

    Mitt will deal if he has to, so what?

    The psychopaths are the ones prolonging this race when neither of them can win

  35. NYCmike says:

    29.Mike, since you are apparently up there, have you seen the info about the NY redistricting plan via the judge? I talked about it last thread, but it is not set in stone yet. Could be good for us in the long run.

    -I had read something about if the legislature and Cuomo don’t sign off on a deal, but have not actually seen anything in the news. My one friend in gov’t has been away on vacation, so I can ask him when he comes back. Will let you know.

  36. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    “There is just no compelling evidence to convince that Santorum is the more electable candidate. ”

    Are you kidding me???

    Are you Mittbots crackheads or something?

    You cannot look at polls months away to pick, that’s not how these things work.

    Santorum does not poll appreciably worse and in several polls outdoes Romney, anyway.

    You are losing the electability argument with each win in critical states or near wins like OH which with equal carpetbombs and no Newt, would have been won by Santorum.

    Romney wins out of misplaced fear of a brainwashed electorate that are spoon fed media pablum coupled with huge endorsement and establishment banking and tons of cash.

    Most of which will be useless in November, since Obama is a machine.

    You do not run a personality challenged candidate like Romney, and expect to win.

    You do not win with a person who screams class warfare, and you do not win with Willkie, as the famous 1940 chant once went.

    Wake up.

  37. MFG says:

    “We are seeing it. We are seeing the fabric of this country fall apart, and it’s falling apart because of single moms.”

  38. MFG says:

    Single mothers, Santorum argued, needed politicians who weren’t afraid of “kicking them in the butt.”

  39. NYCmike says:

    To all a good night, time for the coach-less Knicks to lose their 7th in a row.

  40. MFG says:

    Psychopathic azzhole Pope Ricky wants to eliminate Head of Household filing status for widows and those who have been deserted by their spouse:

    In an effort to encourage people to get married, Santorum has proposed eliminating head-of-household exemptions for unmarried parents, while tripling their value for married parents. “We shouldn’t have incentives for people not to be married,” he said in October.

  41. GF says:

    http://njtoday.vc7.wnet.org/njtoday/video/sen-barbara-buono-seriously-considering-run-for-governor/#.T1-0YS5_Zxs.twitter

    I understand that this woman is a union-blowing nutcase who could hand Christie a ten point win even if we take back the WH this year. Can a local Hedgehogger offer some insight?

  42. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    You are seriously delusion if you want or feel Mitt can win, when he AGREES with Obama on Obamacare, fathered it with Romneycare, then when he’s called on it he uses the 10th amendment and states rights and then Obama says

    “YOU ALSO AGREED ON THE NATIONAL MANDATE AND URGED ME TO USE IT ON OBAMACARE 3 TIMES SINCE 2007!”

    The seminal issue of our time is taken 1000% off the table if Mitt is the nominee.

    Only Rick can argue this, the key issue once voters start to really pay attention and have to actually pick.

    There is then ZERO credibility to third parties for Republicans anymore, if we run Mittens as our standard bearer.

    We will look like lying hypocrites, which we are if we nominate Mitt.

  43. Tim says:

    #39:
    I am no “Mittbot”, or whatever. Any of the regulars here will be glad to tell you that.

    And, the GE electorate and the GOP primary voters are just totally two different things.

    Senator Santorum is far too polarizing a figure. And, he simply cannot attract moderate Indie voters that will be needed to win.

  44. Emerica says:

    Just get rid of automatic female primary custody after divorce (and automatic child support as father’s duty) if he wants less divorce.

  45. Brandon says:

    Buono is a blowhard who no one in her own party even likes. They booted her out of a leadership position in the Assembly.

  46. MFG says:

    Answer #32 you piece of sh*t

  47. MFG says:

    49 is directed to 45

  48. Brandon says:

    I mean Senate, not Assembly.

  49. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    It’s clear tons of Democratic plants are now on our blogs, not just Rockefeller Reps or lib repubs, at least it appears strongly possible.

    The purpose being to fool the naive rank and file repubs. Either that or our side is unbelievably stupid.

    It’s not good either way. Reading posts here from Mitt voters who could easily have accounts on Daily Kos is a dead give away.

    This party is not that liberal, it’s not our way to call Rick “Pope Ricky” and this means these posters are just trolls who are likely Democrats posting as moderate Repubs.

    Disagreeing is one thing, but the types of reasons given against Santorum are dead give aways to liberal socialist Kos Kids with handles on enemy sites.

    The comments are identical on Kos.

    Something is fishy here…

  50. MFG says:

    Answer you jackass

  51. GF says:

    mnw, are you around, or are the Blues playing tonight? I hear John Danforth is trying to persuade the state auditor, Tom Schweich, to join the Senate fray. How do you think he fares vs. Steelman and Akin if he does go for it? Wasn’t the Sky Queen the auditor back in the day?

  52. SoHope - Nazi Slayer says:

    so the regular everyday 4 plus year posters are the trolls and you (the newcomer) who said you and I quote “almost hope for Obama to beat Romney” are a true believer.

  53. Phil says:

    “the GE electorate and Republican primary voters are just two totally different things”

    Finally, some sanity and it has to come from the Democratic side.

    You Santorum lovers don’t get that at all, do you.

  54. SUSYQUE says:

    Is Paul Ready to Cut a Deal with Romney?

    Ron Paul “has sent discreet signals to Camp Romney” suggesting he might be willing to trade his support in the GOP presidential race, Alex Altman reports.

    “Aides say if Paul can’t win the nomination, four legislative priorities would top the Texas Representative’s wish list: deep spending cuts that lead to a balanced budget; the restoration of civil liberties; a commitment to reclaim the legislative branch’s right to declare war, which it abdicated to the executive branch in recent decades; and reforms that shore up the U.S. monetary system, such an audit of the Federal Reserve or competing-currency legislation.”

    Paul might also be enticed “by the prospect of serving as a presidential adviser, a Cabinet position for someone in his orbit or ‘perhaps a vice presidency.’ Not for himself, but rather his son. Rand Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky and a Tea Party icon, is expected to launch his own White House bid in 2016. Being on the ticket now – or even being mentioned for it – would be a helpful step.”

  55. addisonst says:

    Good evening all from the heart of the primary process for the next week. I will reluctantly be voting for Mitt. 2nd time in 4 years I say that. Dingle is unhinged. My father voted for s4b last time. Now loathes him and likes mitt much more than I do. No WAY he will vote for santorum. My mother always votes dem but possibly could vote for Mitt. Santorum makes her sick. I won’t vote for him either. So that’s either 2 or 3 votes for Mitt. None for Rick. Btw don’t look for much dem mischief here. I have a dem friend who is voting dem bc the down ballot races for him are big. Since lots of races here are automatic dem winners, the primary is the decision. Btw Mfg, I will be paying a hondo to your designated charity once the race is officially over.

  56. SUSYQUE says:

    #59….Sounds good to me!

  57. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    Tim, you are a walking brainwash of talking points from the liberal media and its plant, Rove.

    Your claims have been disproven time and again by history, most recently in 2008 and of course in 1980.

    Repeating the idiotic mantra of how Polarizing Santy is, that somehow women will not vote for HIM against the most left wing socialist in history of the usa presidency is sheer madness.

    YOU ARE SURE OF SOMETHING THAT YOU CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW OR PREDICT AND THAT HISTORY DOES NOT SUPPORT YOUR ANALYSIS ON.

    As I’ve said, many times, in REAL matches, indies vote their gut, their instinct on who they feel they can trust more and who they like and feel represents them best.

    They do not vote by ISSUES. They do not look at Romney, a clear moderate, and say “I will vote for him he’s a centrist and that Obama is a leftist” or anything like that.

    The mere fact that Obama can and possibly will beat Romney tells you all you need to know. Swing voters are not party loyalists on either side.

    They vote middle, well left, and well right.

    They are malleable.

    The record of the Establishment on picking moderates designed to appeal to such over 70 years is terrible.

    From Landon, Willkie, Dewey, Ford, Bush 1, McCain, Dole, now soon to include Romney on the losers list, the result is the same.

    The definition of madness is doing things that fail the same way over and over and expecting different results!

  62. SoHope - Nazi Slayer says:

    Karl Rove a liberal failure???

    Only in that he advised GWB to play the dem game of giving away goodies to buy votes, and the compassionate conservativism crap that Santorum was lockstep in (as the GOP Whip).

  66. addisonst says:

    Mfg, I will need that link again in a couple months. When I said mitt had no shot, I had no idea his competition would be this brutal. I thought tpaw perry or somebody who didn’t enter would crush him. I also thought mitt or any adult would crush obama. I now fear that only gas prices can save us. Dingle is unhinged but mitts intramural weakness is a problem. There are gops who will stay home. I didn’t think that 4 months ago. And mitt does say a lot of stupid things. Even today he dismissed last night as states of less importance. That is unforced error

  67. MFG says:

    In retrospect I think we should have gotten behind ZPaw instead but this is the situation we are in

  68. addisonst says:

    Hi GF! I used to email w Dean Barratt a mitt fan who died too soon but worked w hugh. I know emails w a guy like that don’t fit my plant profile. I miss that guy

  69. Phil says:

    Ad, nice to see you voting correctly next week in your primary up there. You remain my favorite sip.

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    Add has returned. In his honor we shall kill the fatted calf or Tim V. (the fatted poster). Add is today’s Favorite Jew.*

    *Sorry, Corey.

  71. addisonst says:

    Mfg I think he goes to denver or miami. My guess is he doesn’t want to be in same conference as goober. Az attraction is fitz and bad division. If he goes there they win div and he knows that. Denver that might be true too. Miami has nice team but tough div.

  72. Bitterlaw says:

    Eagles sign Desean Jackson to 5 year deal. Some fans are wondering if the fact that only $15 million of the $47 million is guaranteed means it is an insult to Jackson. I wonder what it is like to view $15 million dollars that you get even if you break your ankle and never play again as a potential insult.

  73. addisonst says:

    Phil I want it on record that I am voting for mitt bc he is the least worst option. I think he’s a terrible candidate.

  74. Bitterlaw says:

    I think that idea that Peyton manning doesn’t want to play against his brother is overblown or just wrong. For those of us who have brothers, that is every brother’s dream – I want to beat you in front of mom and dad.

  75. Phil says:

    I agree completely, ad. He does nothing for me either. The other guys are clowns so I don’t feel I have much choice.

    Sad.

  76. addisonst says:

    Bitter deshaun is fast. But marshall is diagnosed as borderline personality and punched a woman. Let’s see deshaun top that

  77. Phil says:

    Sorry to see Mario o, but the Texans just can’t afford him. It’s still a business and we need the cap money. Mario will do better in a 4-3 anyway.

  78. addisonst says:

    Bitter he said no to the foreskins bc goober is there. Elway doesn’t even care if he can play. He just wants the excuse to dump tebow. Elway has to get rid of him to step up

  81. Phil says:

    Thing is, Mario only played the first 5 games last year, and the last 11 games our OLB play was so good, losing Mario won’t be as painful. Sure would have liked to have had him next year tho. Great, great talent.

  82. addisonst says:

    If Mitt picks Rand for VP, I’ll vote for him in November and probably even campaign for him.

  96. addisonst says:

    Yes malaprop I did. He will.

  97. Phil says:

    Romney-Rubio gives us a good chance.

  98. lisab says:

    “No, I think that was me.” phil

    nope

    addisonst clearly told Bitterlaw obama will stay indefinitely if he wins in 2012

  99. addisonst says:

    Yes I did

  100. lisab says:

    “the chief justice dragged away in chains” is one of Bitterlaw’s favorite expressions

  101. addisonst says:

    He was planning to stay for life after 08. The economy and tea party interrupted. If he wins he’s staying.

  102. addisonst says:

    If he wins he will grant citizenship to the illegals and then amend the constitution

  103. lisab says:

    what about the black helicopters?

  104. addisonst says:

    Malaprop u think there is an epidemic of raping principals. Whereas obama is on record for amnesty and liberals want to change the rule on presidential terms. Which part won’t happen? Amnesty or an amendment?

  105. Brandon says:

    You’re completely certifiably insane.

  106. Phil says:

    Anyone who has watched this SOB in office for the past 3 years knows good and well he’s capable of anything. He’s not exactly in love with our constitution. he doesn’t even like it.

  107. addisonst says:

    Obama a marxist narcissist is going to hand the office to rubio in 4 years. Rightyo. Now I remember why I left. Malaprop doesn’t just hijack threads. She is a moron

  108. addisonst says:

    Brandon u are usually logical. If obama wins is he going to grant amnesty?

  109. Phil says:

    Example this week. We had a pretty reasonable voter ID law in place down here in Texas. Holder squashed it like a grape.

  110. addisonst says:

    Its amazing how people think obama is a marxist or a fascist but no problem.

  111. Brandon says:

    Even if he does, that doesn’t mean he’s going to proclaim himself dictator and order the chief justice to be dragged out in chains.

  112. Phil says:

    He will if he can get away with it.

  113. jenny-former republican says:

    #74, I agree with you. t-paw would’ve been better but who knows with these idiots! t-paw isn’t a religious zealot so they would probably oppose him.

  114. Phil says:

    Some of you have a lot more faith in Obama than I. I think he’s a leftist idealogue who will do whatever it takes to turn this country to as close to a socialist paradise as he can ge it.

    Don’t believe me? Hide and watch what he has in store once the election is behind him.

  115. addisonst says:

    Brandon he didn’t do amnesty in 09 bc he didn’t see the mid terms coming. Do u really think he’s planning on leaving in 16? he is going to grant citienship to millions. Then what? He works for gore?

  116. Brandon says:

    Then he gets nominated for the Supreme Court by the next Dem prez.

  117. addisonst says:

    Phil is correct. He wins and he stays. No mechanism to get rid of him

  118. The Ghost of the Ghost of SoHope says:

    100…TROLL TROLL TROLL

  119. addisonst says:

    Brandon, why would dems replace him? They will amend the const w their newly americanized friends. Amnesty is coming right? Please tell me u get that at least

  120. Bitterlaw says:

    I will not fight with today’s Favorite Jew.

  121. addisonst says:

    Ok. So obama doesn’t want to stay and he won’t create millions of new citizens? Fine I’m way off. He’s just a happy liberal riding off.

  122. Bitterlaw says:

    I will, however, express quiet but firm disagreement with the idea intends to remain in office past his term.

  123. Phil says:

    Instant citizenship for millions of illegals. The right to vote in one swoop and you have huge Obama loving majorities as far as the eye can see.

    Who’s going to object outside of the tiny minority of Republicans? The MSM?

  124. addisonst says:

    Neither did hitler

  125. mnw says:

    MFG

    Thx for the heads-up about the Chefs. “My team” right now is the BLOOZ!, followed by the 2011 World Champeen Cards… and THEN the hapless Chefs.

  126. Wobbles says:

    The only hope we have is a brokered convention.

  127. Bitterlaw says:

    Obama is like the man who started a war that killed tens if millions and murdered 6 million Jews? Well, it should be fun to discuss this after Add is not the Favorite Jew.

  128. addisonst says:

    He’s more like castro. Is he going to grant amnesty bitter? And will his cult seek to amend the constitution? U know both answers.

  129. Wobbles says:

    Your right wing conspiracy nuts think that Obama will not leave office. This talk just makes him more sympathetic.

  130. DrJay says:

    We Ask America

    IL-16 R primary

  131. Phil says:

    Boy, this second term is going to be quite an eye opener for some on this site.

    Pass the popcorn.

  132. Bitterlaw says:

    Add – no to amnesty and no to amending the constition. I think you are wrong and you think I’m wrong. It’s ok.

  133. DrJay says:

    Pa. House passes voter ID bill

    “The 104-88 vote Wednesday in the Republican-controlled chamber came after three days of debate. The measure heads to Gov. Tom Corbett, also a Republican, who says he’ll sign it into law immediately. A court challenge is expected.”

  134. addisonst says:

    Amnesty no bc the gop can stop it or bc he won’t do it?

  135. addisonst says:

    Btw please reconcile w I’m an obama plant. Thanks much

  136. addisonst says:

    Dr j, holder won’t enforce it. Nothing to see here. Move along.

  137. Bitterlaw says:

    He won’t do it. You’re not dragging me into this fight.

  138. Phil says:

    It will have to be because the GOP can stop it. It won’t be because zero won’t cram it through if he can. What in the world makes some of you have so much faith in this guy?

  139. Phil says:

    see Texas.

  140. addisonst says:

    He’s on record as favoring amnesty. Its beyond dispute.

  141. Wobbles says:

    It is not likely that the Republicans will retain the House. The Senate change is also not likely.

  142. Wobbles says:

    Addisonst has a point on amnesty. You know if Obama wins (and it is virtually guaranteed), the moderates will go along with Amnesty. McCain, as an example, will help lead the Republicans on this issue.

  143. Phil says:

    Wobbles is correct

    IF

    Santorum heads the ticket.

  144. Bitterlaw says:

    You know, if you take some DailyKOS posts and substitute Obama for Bush, it seems eerily similar.

  145. MFG says:

    I think Obama would turn the US into Venezuela or Cuba if he could, don’t see how it pulls it off in the real world

    But he would do it if he could…

  146. addisonst says:

    D rose out. Game is meaningless.

  147. addisonst says:

    Bitter bush was a humble guy who didn’t want power for life

  148. Phil says:

    Bush actually admired and respected the Constitution like the rest of those that occupied the WH.

    Barry? Uh, not so much.

  149. DrJay says:

    NBC pulls Ron Paul’s last embed

    “Obviously, it’s not just the number of events that are keeping so many other outlets off Paul’s trail altogether. The candidate has just 47 delegates to date and not a single primary or caucus victory to his name. For most political reporters, he is all but irrelevant to the future of the GOP contest.”

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2012/03/nbc-pulls-ron-pauls-last-embed-117436.html

  150. Bitterlaw says:

    156.Bush actually admired and respected the Constitution like the rest of those that occupied the WH. – Phil

    No, Phil, the KOS posts used to say the same crap about Bush.

  151. addisonst says:

    Hello? Bitter that’s kos. Vs a narcissist marxist who thinks he’s smarter than you. And already jamminmg hcr down your piehole. At no time has he respected the rule of law. Amnesty coming

  152. Bitterlaw says:

    DrJay – obviously, NBC is part of the GOP Establishment. Right, Bunu?

  153. Bitterlaw says:

    Add – after you ran screaming into the night about the Chief Justice in chains, where did you go? Obama sucks but you are absurd. I don’t want to call you on it too much or you will p**ssy out of HHR again until you feel a need to come back.

  154. MFG says:

    Many things change but there is always one constant:

    Ron Paul getting his azz kicked in primaries and caucuses…

  155. Phil says:

    I know they said it about Bush. Just because the KOS bunch was spewing BS doesn’t mean it’s BS to think Obama is a power hungry leftist. Take a look at his past running buddies.

  156. Bitterlaw says:

    I DVRed Whitney. It is set in Chicago. I will be back later to reed Add’s “Bitter sucks” rants. I give him credit for coming back, unlike that other p**ssy Maxwell.

  157. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – Obama is a power-hungry leftist but Hitler (to use Add’s analogy)?

  158. DrJay says:

    #160 They all are! I think the point of the article was that the NBC reporter was the last one following him period, unless I misread:

    “A couple weeks back I noted that Ron Paul, the lonely delegate hunter, had only one full-time, embedded reporter on his trail: Anthony Terrell of NBC News.”

    This guy has been recalled now.

  159. Phil says:

    If you are counting on Zero to restrain himself because of his allegience to a constitution that he despises, that’s not very comforting.

  160. addisonst says:

    Bitter you call sourthern states stupid while pennsylvania runs to beatify paterno. You don’t think obama is a fascist despite hcr and holder. Whatever dude. amnesty is a fiction. It must be nice nice to live in a clueless state. I suppose taxes aren’t goin up either

  161. addisonst says:

    And hitler was a leftist. Duh

  162. Bitterlaw says:

    Add- run away again, mf-er. Go back to the HHR Refugee Program.

  163. Bitterlaw says:

    You are, however, still today’s Favorite Jew.

  164. bio mom says:

    Just watched John King on CNN absolutely destroy a Gingrich guy trying to say he can win at the convention. Using his terrific map King showed how essentially nobody is going to stop Romney. The Gingrich guy looked quite befuddled.

  165. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/14/romney-very-conservative-voters-might-not-be-with-me-now-but-they-will-be-in-november/

    Of course, Romney is such a pathological bald faced scum liar he denies point blank what his Op-Ed TV interview segments, and materials said going back to 2007 and just repeats the lie that “he is into state’s rights and the 10th amendment and mandates at the STATE level, when in fact he backed them at the federal level and urged Obama to apply them to Obamacare!

    Nobody this dishonest, who p@sses on your leg and tells you it’s raining, can be or should be anywhere near a nuclear weapon.

    No to Romney, YES to Santorum.

  166. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    I honestly cannot understand how you people here backing Romney can sleep at night with someone you KNOW is a full scale liar asking for your support on the seminal issue of our time, national health care and mandates, nationwide applied.

    He lied.

    20 times.

    TWENTY TIMES.

    He then walks onto Fox News, and just says he is into state’s right, 10th amendment yada yada yada, and ignores documented evidence of his lies.

    He supported on multiple occasions, the mandate at the FEDERAL LEVEL.

    Got it, Mittbots?

  167. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder how Cheksux is able to type “YES to Santorum” without losing what is left of her mind. Then again, maybe it really is Add. They have never been here at the exact same moment.

  168. Bitterlaw says:

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  169. mnw says:

    As a MO voter, I must agree with those who have posted that Santo is likely to win the MO caucuses.

    I wish it were otherwise. Romney hasn’t wasted much time or money on MO, from what I’ve seen.

    I’m going to be voting for Mr. Roboto at the Camden County caucus on Saturday– I fear that Camden will be among Santo’s best, however. Santo made an appearance last week in Osage Beach. MO. I fear Santo didn’t choose Osage Beach by drawing a name out of a hat– all white; lots of retirees; rural; heavily fundamentalist.

  170. janz says:

    #177 mnw Good for you in making the effort, despite the odds.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was not impressed by taking away weapons of our soldiers to even the playing field with the afgan soldiers. It was definitely a politically correct move. But, I am getting tired of these overseas charades. I think our guys should just come home.

  171. janz says:

    dingle you are tiredsome in your rants.

  172. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    Math challenged Mittbots, read this simple analysis:

    “Throughout this R primary, Willard has only been competitive in the areas Obambi dominates, basically urban areas, and that only barely, with a massive Goldman Sachs blowtorch destroying all opposition.

    Willard got bombed all across Michigan, but took Oakland County and the capital, and thus squeaked out a slender plurality. Same thing happened in Ohio.

    In the general election, Obambi is going to blow Willard out in those same urban areas, and as Willard hasn’t demonstrated any electoral power elsewhere to compensate, he’s gonna lose that election. This is a quite simple calculus.

    Willard would lose Michigan, and arguably by 20 points. Santorum will have it as a tossup state. Why? Many of those Oakland County RINOs who voted for Willard in the primary are gonna vote for Obambi in the general, as they like babykilling, global warmingsim, ObomneyCare, Bailouts, etc… and will vote for the real Obambi deal, just like they did in 2008. And Santorum’s primary voters, a good chunk of them, will NOT vote for that lying progressive crapweasel Willard.

    That spells blowout loss for Willard in Michigan. Even worse than McLiar. Now extrapolate that blowout across the Midwest. Ohio for sure. Pennsylvania. WI. Even IN.

    Willard is a sure loser.”

    The poster (not me) is from Polipundit.

    He’s right. Romney won barely in both MI and OH especially by winning in areas where Obama dominates and will crush in the fall. He under performs in
    areas Republicans have to crush in the GE to overcome the big pop center blowouts he’s likely to be on the receiving end of. Mittens will lose those areas, the ones he won against Santorum, big. Believing he can slice into mods and indies there is fantasy. They will vote Obama by nearly the same margins as against Santorum in November against Obama. But Mittens depresses Prolifers and walk on glass values voters in small counties, ones a Republican MUST crush in the fall to overcome losing in Cahoyuga county, in OH for example. Mittens is a lot weaker than Santorum here, and is less electable.

    He’s also doing a lot worse in PA, where Rick is within a point of Obama.

  173. bio mom says:

    Nobody expects Romney to win Missouri. He has bigger fish to fry in Illinois. He will win Puerto Rico.

  174. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    My rants as you call them are the facts, not rants.

    They are experience, and I have over 30 years of that in this business. I am sick of losing like this because people believe the media like lemmings and parrot back BS not backed up by facts.

  175. addisonst says:

    Sheesh. I came back for this from dingle? Watching bull and heats. Ciao.

  176. Phil says:

    See what you’ve been missing?

  177. SoHope says:

    Dingleberry apparently thinks that fiscal conservatives, social moderates, and suburban and urban republicans, and any republicans who’s political stance consist of more than “God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve” clearly don’t exist and therefore shouldn’t count in a primary election.

    In fact they are the ones that will fall off and cost us the GE is we run Santorum or Newt.

    Buy a clue, Troll!

  178. SoHope says:

    30 years in what business?

  179. janz says:

    #182 They are ‘facts’ as interpreted by you.

    My facts indicate a huge backlash towards Santorum and Gingrich from Catholic, Presbyterian, and other religions outside the brackets of the evangelicals. Woman despise Gingrich for his personal history with women. Others look at Santorum as a santimonious and ‘scary’ man, who has had many twists and turns as a big government politician.

    Neither of these men have a chance in the general election. They may indeed be able to cow the R electorate, who will endorse them, not for the big picture, but for the smaller social values they deem to represent.

  180. Bitterlaw says:

    I have over 30 years of that in this business.

    I want to know what business you can be in and only have one statement or product.

  181. Bitterlaw says:

    Dr. SoHope – Add came back and I immediately started fighting with him (well, withing an hour). Why do I push him away?

  182. SoHope says:

    oh and add to the list of “invented republicans” in #185:

    -Libertarians
    -Single mothers
    -Women in general
    -Non-evangelicals
    -Non-religious
    -Those that want small government
    -Those that think that executive experience is a good thing
    -Those that don’t practice class warfare but claim to be conservative
    -Those that aren’t big fans of Union Goons
    -And those that think the founders didn’t think that the freedom of the “Pursuit of Happiness” was not limited to what is sanctioned by a church as being in God’s will.

  183. lisab says:

    and a few comments sends addisnst of the deep end :)

  184. Jerry muthertruckin' Cruncher says:

    I agree w Add/Phil re the amnesty move. Romney must win and we must defeat this man. Dingle is WyleCoyote in my estimation and part of me wants to believe Santo could win as well, but his $ disadvantage and lack of organization gives me no faith. I don’t care about the social issue crappola bc no one else does this election cycle.

  185. janz says:

    #192 WEC fits the verbiage of dingle.

    Good list SoHope…

  186. Dr. SoHope says:

    Interesting….You obviously have an Oedipus complex – A persistent set of unconscious beliefs and desires that results, according to Freud, from the childhood repression of the desire to sleep with one’s mother and kill one’s father.

    You identify Add as with you father and hate him as such.

    This also explains your love of sweaters and red wine as an attempt to win the approval of your mother’s proxy, lisab, by displaying her prefered non-masculine eunuch-like version of manhood.

  187. Bitterlaw says:

    WEC takes 5x as long as Dingle to say nothing.

  188. jenny-former republican says:

    this is the first election year where one candidate is expected to win every contest. mccain, gwb, obama and bill clinton lost during the primary but they got their party’s nomination.

    go mitt!

  189. Dr. SoHope says:

    …but regardless of how screwed up in the head you are, you are still my favorite Catholic :)

    BTW, the invoice is in the mail.

    Net 30 Terms.

  190. Bitterlaw says:

    Dr. SoHope – Very interesting. I just thought that it was because Add was both a p**ssy and an a-hole. it all makes sense now (except for the Oedipus, sweater and red wine part).

  191. Dr. SoHope says:

    You may be on the something…you still owe me for the session, though.

  192. Dr. SoHope says:

    CC

  193. Dr. SoHope says:

    Good night…everyone

  194. david says:

    Even Obama’s NCAA bracket is political…picking NC to win it all. can you say swing state?

  195. Corey says:

    Bulls minus MVP Derrick Rose vs. Heat

    Outcome is meaningless right, as stated a few times here pre-game?

    Well, unless the Bulls WIN!!!!!

    That was awesome! Such a great victory! Made Alabama and Mississippi last night worth dealing with for me.

    Maybe Blago got to watch the game on his last night of freedom…

    By the way, the anti-Santorum robocalls from Romeny and his SuperPac that myself and other Republican voters are getting here are relentless..

  196. sickofdems says:

    This site is just the pitts these days but its un-bearable when Addisonst starts with the insane postings.

    He knows NOTHING about sports and even less about politics.

    I always thought that Bunu was the most unintelligent poster here.
    He is Einstein next to addisonst.

    No wonder so many decent posters have left here.

  197. sickofdems says:

    Thank-you Bitterlaw and lisab for running him( addisonst )out of here….

  198. Tim says:

    I’m glad I caught up on all the posts after I left. That way, I found out that Rove is a fellow Liberal plant.

    I wish I had what some people are smoking……………..

  199. Tim says:

    I am also glad to see that I am brainwashed by talking points.

    Simply amazing what all I can find out about myself from total strangers……….

  200. Tim says:

    Hey, and Add was here!

    And, there was a lively discussion about the President being Hitler and Castro, turning us into Venezuela, and giving amnesty to everyone!

    I guess I shouldn’t have gone to my television, to seek out March Madness. It was here, instead……….

  201. Brandon says:

    Apparently I was being “illogical” for not believing that crap.
