    Bill White #1!

  2. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bill White was pimped by PPP in 2010 also, what were the results again? oh yeah…

  3. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Remember PPP was claiming O down by single digits in TX also

    NYC was upset because “we wouldn’t keep an open mind about Rand Paul”, yet in the previous thread he says “Rubio not fit to be President”.

    Yeah, let’s keep an open mind about a guy a huge chunk of even Republicans would not vote for and let’s say the guy that could unite the party and is a Latino to boot is not fit to be President.

    I just love the hypocrisy.

    @18 what jason said

    -Can either one of you “gentlemen” show me where I said anything remotely about Rubio NOT being fit to be President? R U KIDDING?
    I will ask AGAIN, and read this very carefully, because there are no code words, why is Rubio associating himself with the following people: Schumer, Durbin, McCain, and Graham? As MD also said, there is not even a bill to critique yet. I am simply wondering why Senator Marco Rubio, a person I would love to pull the lever for President for him, judging by what he has said his principles are, and how he has said he will govern, has decided to lay down with those 4 dogs!!

  5. JulStol says:

    Bitter,

    Yeah, I’m sure E-Verify will only track illegals…

    “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out…”

    We’re headed towards an all powerful police state supported by the vast underclass who just want their welfare checks and freedom to fornicate and get high. No other freedom required.

    When George Orwell said “if there is hope, it must lie in the proles”, he was severely deluded. Only those with a stake in the future have a reason to preserve it.

    The founding fathers were right when they only granted the ability to vote to land owners (they were wrong about the men and white people only bit).

    “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.”

    …And the meek useful quislings like Bitterlaw will fully support when Republicans like Mike Castle, Scott Brown, Arlen Specter, and Dick Lugar lend their support to Big Government initiatives. Hey, at least they’re “electable”

  6. Waingro says:

    Laughable PPP poll.

  7. HHR Polling Report says:

    is this a PPP poll or a Paladin poll? LOL

  8. Wes says:

    Meanwhile, the sanctimonious , self-important, hypocritical bitchboys like JulStol will cheer when leftist a such as Chris Coons, Harry Reid, and Michael Bennett win. After all, their elections send a message that Obama assworshippers are better in office than Republicans who oppose Obama on key initiatives. Get over yourself, you lightweight prick. Idiocy like what I just read in 5 makes me glad I’m no longer a regular on this site. The doublestandarded dumbasses make it damn near unreadable.

  9. HHR Polling Report says:

    “The doublestandarded dumbasses make it damn near unreadable.”

    yet you return? btw Hamilton is a skiller

  10. HHR Polling Report says:

    Wes is back, Bitter must be getting excited. Gary Maxwell next?

  12. HHR Fact Checker says:

    damn, I forgot to change my handle.

    Comment by JulStol

    I really wish Jul was here so I could laugh in his face. I have never voted for a Democrat in any race since I started voting in 1986. Jul? Well, you jnow that story. I also never give money to candidates outside my state. As for Jul’s list:

    Castle would have prevented Senator for Life Coons. COD could not.

    Lugar? Replacing him might have been a good idea except the replacement was a moron and the Dems have another solid Senator to vote for them.

    Specter? I supported Specter over Toomey in 2004 because in 2004 Toomey was running an Akin-lite campaign on social issues. Senator Joe Hoeffel was a nightmare that had to be stopped. In 2010, Toomey changed tactics and buried the social issues and won a narrow victory.

    Scott Brown? I guess Jul thinks Ted Cruz could win in Mass.

    Jul’s dream of 99 Democrats and Senator Jul in the Senate won’t die.

  16. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    NYC was upset because “we wouldn’t keep an open mind about Rand Paul”, yet in the previous thread he says “Rubio not fit to be President”.

    -Also, please show me where I said I would “take my ball and go home” like jason did. ANY REPUBLICAN WILL BE BETTER THAN Hillary, Andy Cuomo, etc, which is something that jason does not agree with! jason, and I guess Author, since he agrees with jason, will NOT vote for Rand Paul, if he gets through the primary process and wins enough delegates to be the candidate. He will simply leave that entry blank.
    I also will state again, that I would rather Rand Paul NOT RUN FOR PRESIDENT, but maintain his position in the Senate, because I trust him more than the current leadership to fight for limited government, especially in the domestic sphere. His foreign policy ideas are MOST DEFINITELY open for debate, but I will take the man at his word (an attack on Israel is an attack on the U.S.) until further notice.

  17. Bitterlaw says:

    I guess Jul doesn’t realize that crappy Republicans count just as much as Jul’s favorites when you need 51 Senators to control the Chamber but there is a Democrat VP. He did say his Math SAT was pretty average. It makes sense.

    Hi, Wes.

  18. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    “and I guess Author, since he agrees with jason, will NOT vote for Rand Paul, if he gets through the primary process and wins enough delegates to be the candidate.”

    as it stands today I would vote for Rand for President if he were the nominee. However right now Rubio is my preferred candidate.

  19. Waingro says:

    #16, I’m actually really liking Rand Paul, the Senator. But I hope he just stays there.

  20. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Author,
    Can you please show me where I said what jason said I said, and which you agreed with that I said?

  21. Bitterlaw says:

    General Jul – June 6, 1944…What do you mean that we can’t seize Berlin immediately? We have to land in France and then fight our way across Europe? Forget it. A True Army would win immediately. You guys are p*ssies like Bitterlaw.

  22. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Mike I think jason was referring to this:

    “I am sorry, but for Rubio to mix himself up with Graham & McCain, Schumer & Durbin, that really makes me suspect he is not the right person to lead this nation.”

    In your defense it was not as outright as jason made it seem like it was.

  23. Chili's Babe says:

    Hi Wes baby, missed you last night.

  24. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    I wonder what Wes would think of the phone call Jul received from that ex’s husband

  25. GF says:

    Bill White can win, but only if he’s in it for Texas this time; he clear;y wasn’t last time around.

    Good afternoon, HHR.

  26. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Author,

    To be honest, that sentence is stronger than I thought I had written. So I can see where jason can have some thoughts to what he said. I should be more careful what i write.
    That said, i am still not thrilled that Rubio is dealing with the people that he is dealing with. I do not trust the 4 (Schumer, Durbin, Graham, mcCain) of them AT ALL! It is like Dubya passing education reform with F’n Kennedy!

  27. Chuck Schumer says:

    Don’t worry, fellow NY citizen, I’ll make sure I make Marco look “really good, like the rock star that he is”!
    I always loved the Doors, Mr Mojo Risin! We’ll see if Marco disappears, like little Jimmy did. I still think he is in India, or maybe Jamaica, Queens.

  28. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    F L M, chuckie!

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    Fluff Llama My?

  30. Waingro says:

    #27, Chuck You! :)

    Chuckie knew what I meant!

  33. JulStol says:

    ” have never voted for a Democrat in any race since I started voting in 1986. ”

    Oh, sure you have. Arlen Specter, Pat Meehan, Barbara Hafer, Steve Welch, Tom Ridge…

    Just because they have/had an R by their name in the voting booth doesn’t mean they’re Republicans.

  34. JulStol says:

    “I guess Jul doesn’t realize that crappy Republicans count just as much as Jul’s favorites when you need 51 Senators to control the Chamber”

    Functionally, there is no difference between 43 and 55 Republicans in the Senate (while Obama remains President).

    Neither 43 nor 55 Republicans will stop his SCOTUS appointments.

    Neither 43 nor 55 Republicans will impeach him.

    Fewer than 43 and you lose the fillibuster (due to squishes like Collins, McCain, and Graham).

    More than 55 and you get a few Dems like Begich, Manchin, Nelson (FL), and Pryor to go along and vote for cloture.

  35. Tom Ridge says:

    um…I’m a Republican. I voted for McCain and Romney, even thought Romney would win the state.

  36. JulStol says:

    “Meanwhile, the sanctimonious , self-important, hypocritical bitchboys like JulStol will cheer when leftist a such as Chris Coons, Harry Reid, and Michael Bennett win. After all, their elections send a message that Obama assworshippers are better in office than Republicans”

    Hi, Wes. Welcome back even if your opening was an attack on me.

    The only one of those wins that I was ok with was Coons because Castle had a lifetime 34 percent lifetime Conservative rating.

    Buck in CO. would have won were it not for the fustercluck in the Gov race. If Norton had won the primary, she’d have been an ok Senator. Let me remind you, she supported your second all time favorite candidate: Rick Santorum.

    Reid would have won no matter what.

    I never, ever, supported Akin.

  37. JulStol says:

    “um…I’m a Republican. I voted for McCain and Romney, even thought Romney would win the state.

    Comment by Tom Ridge ”

    Gov Ridge,
    Yeah, Kathleen Kane supported McCain too. You know what else you have in common with her? You support an assault weapons ban.

    At least she doesn’t support killing babies, like you do.

  38. jan says:

    Yes more talk about abortion, rape and self deportation. That’s the ticket to success.

  39. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Jul,

    Isn’t it important to note who these terrible Republicans were running AGAINST?

  40. Tom Ridge says:

    some shiiiit-stain is talking to me? care to talk about your own issues? Tell me how does a suppose Big Government fighter back leftists and continue to take a check from the public’s own taxes?

  41. JulStol says:

    NYCMike,

    Given that Lugar, Specter, Castle, etc all had a record of supporting Amnesty, higher spending, the rich paying their “fair share” of taxes, believed in man made Gorebull warming, supported “reasonable restrictions” on guns, etc? Tell me what the long-term difference between them and a Democrat is? Oh, right, nothing other than they move my party to the left.

  42. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    You forgot my addendum.

    It is “Fluff My Imaginary Llama”.

    FMIL.

    Do not confuse it with MILF.

  43. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Jul,
    I do see the problem you have with some of these Republicans, though. Both Lugar and Castle refused to support their party’s candidate in the general election, which definitely made it a lot harder for those people. And then there was Murkowski, who decided to run as a write-in, in a state where she probably had a cousin supply the ballots.

  44. JulStol says:

    “Tell me how does a suppose Big Government fighter back leftists and continue to take a check from the public’s own taxes?”

    Well, Gov,

    I prefer a Progressive who is being honest about who they are over a Progressive (like yourself) who is lying to me about their true ideology.

    I collect a government check? Surprising to me. Hell, I’m unemployed and I haven’t even applied for unemployment compensation. Rather than do that, I worked a job in retail making the same as I would on unemployment and have an interview this week with a BBQ joint. I’d rather work than sit at home collecting a check.

    -Looking at the Senators I have in NY, it usually looks better in just about any state.

  46. JulStol says:

    NYC,

    You live in a Progressive hellhole. I don’t blame you for voting for the Pataki’s and Bloombergs of the world. In your area, that’s as close to “freedom” as you’re going to get.

  47. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    FMIL.

    Do not confuse it with MILF

    -I totally missed the “I” in there! Sorry, Senator Walt!

  48. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    BTW, heard Chris Stirewalt being interviewed today and he says YoMama in his speech today will talk about illegal immigration and gays and other things.

    Stirewalt says that YoMama’s goal is not to have reasonable illegal immigration reform passed, but to continue his divide and conquer of GOP, split them, demonize the hearless b@st@rds, and prevent them from making the usual gains in Congress in 2014.

    Says YoMama not really interested in half a loaf. Wants GOP to go WAY farther than they may be willing to do so he can continue to beat them like a pinatta (my words, not his). HYoMama will DEMAND the GOP kneel and praise the One on this issue and all issues.

  50. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Senator Walt we are voting on a bill to award an honor to the handle “been waiting..” from a post last night who attacked Bunu. I vote yes.

  51. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    FWIW NYC, I think Rubio will end up leaving “The gang of 8″ as might McCain and other Republicans involved once O start making it a “my way or the highway” thing. Just my early view on it.

  52. bio mom says:

    Wes!! Nice to see him here again.

  53. Michael (Christie for Governor) says:

    Jul is here? Oh my

  54. Bitterlaw says:

    The only one of those wins that I was ok with was Coons because Castle had a lifetime 34 percent lifetime Conservative rating.

    So Jul wanted to replace them with 100% Liberals. Math is just not his thing.

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    I prefer a Progressive who is being honest about who they are over a Progressive (like yourself) who is lying to me about their true ideology.

    And then he votes for the honest Progressive. Joke.

  56. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – If you saw the Democrats that Jul would prefer over the RINOs you would run screaming. In 2004, Joe “Emptier Suit than Bob Casey” Hoeffel ran against Specter. I can’t even pretend to understand how a True Conservative can ever support the more conservative candidate losing. The Democrat is always, by definition, more liberal. Always. Jul will try to claim some Sewer Commissioner in Nowhereville, PA is to the right of Reagan to justify his voting for them.

    Also, has anybody ever heard of a School Board member “endorsing” a candidate?

  57. Tim says:

    Was that really Wes who posted in #8? Wes, if it was you, come on back, buddy!

  58. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    Despite my hard core views on illegal immigrants, I KNOW we HAVE to come up with SOME type of gradual” amnesty” for many of those 11-14 million who are already here illefgally.

    That is an uncomfortable reality.

    If we require registration of illegal immigrants, then after some date certain if an illegal immigrant is found who did NOT register, they they get removed from the USA. Gone. If they got a husband/wife and kids (U.S citizens)–we pay for their exit too if they want to go.

    Criminal record that involves any felony? Gone.

    Too many other non-felony criminal acts? Gone.

    Pay a fine?–yes. Fine depends on how many government services they have been partaking in since illegal entry. Fine needs to be WAY more than $5000.

    Have they been part of the scam claiming and getting billions of tax refunds to send home to ficticious “child dependants”? Gone.

    Registered illegally to vote and then voted? Should be a felony. Gone. Or at least lose right to vote for 30 years.

    Have they been brought to U.S. and made to work as prostitutes or plant and tend large marijuana plots in national and state forests in WI, MN and other states? Gone–unless they turn states evidence against those criminals who are running these types of operations from the top leading to the top people being tried and convicted and going to the slammer for a long time and the assets of these top folks that were secured by criminal activity confiscated by the government.

    Expand foreign work permits. Sure. Skilled workers–definitely. Unskilled workers as well. But have to track so they keep their noses clean and they do not “disappear” and become undocumented illegals.

    If they DO, then there must be a very big hammer come down on them and a certainty that they WILL be caught. Expel them and if they put one foot back inside the U.S. border they go directly to prison for X years.

    They should not gain special status that can stay just because they fathered some anchor baby some where. We got more than enough fatherless babies already running around from native born U.S. idiots.

    Serve honorable in the U.S. armed forces? (I am stunned they could even get in without proving citizenship)–fine, that should earn them big brownie points before the review board.

    Been here 20 years and still cannot speak English? Gone.

  59. Bitterlaw says:

    Walt – was that you cursing up a storm last night? It didn’t seem your style.

  60. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    Bitter,

    Yes, I am ashamed to say that it was me, Walt unleashed. I blame it on family stress and sleep deprivation.

    I will try to do better, Bitter batter.

  61. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    Bitter,

    The good thing about my ranting last night it did to some degree get rid of the IDGAS attitude I was rutted in.

    So far today I have found and fished out the missing pump part in the bottom of the pond. I also have taken apart and cleaned 10 of the 13 electric baseboard heater units in my house. And I brought in the mail.

  62. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    I will try to do better, Bitter batter.

    -SusyQue is like Cuuu-stanza!

  63. JulStol says:

    56,

    I stood at the polls in 04 and handed out fliers for Jim Clymer (Constitutionalist) over both Specter and Hoeffel.

    “Also, has anybody ever heard of a School Board member “endorsing” a candidate?”

    I’m a county committeeman as well.

  64. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    electric baseboard heater units

    -OUCH! What are your electric bills like? That is an expensive way to heat, isn’t it?

  65. JulStol says:

    Anyone else think we may be misinterpreting Obama’s claim that he “shoots skeet all the time”?

    I mean, maybe he didn’t mean what we thought he meant?

    Just sayin’

  66. Jul I don’t understand why yo want full blown liberals in congress rather than moderate republicans

  67. Bitterlaw says:

    I stood at the polls in 04 and handed out fliers for Jim Clymer (Constitutionalist) over both Specter and Hoeffel.

    Translation – Jul tried to help Hoeffel win by getting people to toss away their votes.

  68. @politico: RT @mkraju Senate now voting to confirm John Kerry as secretary of state

  69. @67 translation, Jul is not a republican

  70. Jan 29 Politics1com: MASSACHUSETTS: Boston Globe reports Gov Patrick plans to appoint women or person of color to John Kerry soon-to-be vacant US Senate seat.

  71. @rollcallpols: RT @l_whittington: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz votes “no” on Kerry nomination.

  72. JulStol says:

    ” translation, Jul is not a republican”

    I was 16 years old at the time. I wasn’t anything, yet. On my 18th Birthday in December of 05, I was appointed to a vacancy on the County GOP Committee.
    In 2006 I ran for Republican State Committee and was elected to my county committee.
    In 2010 I again ran for Republican state committee.
    In 2011 I was the endorsed Republican nominee for re election to my school board seat. (In 07, I actually won both party nominations in the primary)
    In 2012, I once again ran for and was elected to the Republican County Committee.

    The evidence is pretty conclusive. I am a Republican.

  73. No Jul, I truly don’t think the county party would elect you if they saw what you post here. You seem to “vote’, yet not support Democrats, yet you vote and support Constitution party candidates. I think you are a wacko

  74. @ppppolls: @tednesi Lincoln Chafee is reallllllly unpopular

    Duh

  75. JulStol says:

    “I think you are a wacko”

    A sane man in an insane world must himself appear insane.

    “Yet you vote and support Constitution party candidates.”

    Which the party chairman who appointed me knew.

    At any rate, the County Committee doesn’t elect me, the voters in my precinct do.

    I know a Communist Apparatchik like yourself thinks only the Central Committee should appoint Party Members, but that’s not how we do things here in ‘Merica!

  76. Okay Jul call me a communist, even though I too attend the county GOP meetings. Where we are all actually concerned about taking out the democrat with our own party candidates rather than worrying about Constitution Party Candidates.

    I don’t suppose you are about to call the Centre County GOP a communist society?

  77. Actually Jul, most of us in Centre seeing Corbett now taking on the NCAA as a plus

  78. JulStol says:

    “I don’t suppose you are about to call the Centre County GOP a communist society?”

    I might if they followed your model of only having “the county party” elect committeefolk as opposed to letting the voters handle it.

  79. Jul, the primary voter elect the Chairman and others.

    Anyways.

    Jul thinks that a GOP County party is communist because it may not elect its officials through the public.

    That’s not communist, that’s authoritarian

  80. JulStol says:

    “most of us in Centre seeing Corbett now taking on the NCAA as a plus”

    Seriously, man. Learn how to construct a sentence in english.

    Maybe y’all are a bunch of Reds. You think the government actually has a place getting involved in funding college education and interfering in a private organization such as the NCAA.

  81. 3 GOP “no” votes on John Kerry to be SoS: Cruz, Cornyn & Inhofe.

  82. JulStol says:

    “Jul, the primary voter elect the Chairman and others.”

    No they don’t. They elect the County Committee. The Committee elects the Chairman. You’re a moron.

    “Jul thinks that a GOP County party is communist because it may not elect its officials through the public.

    That’s not communist, that’s authoritarian”

    Oh, so Mikey is in favour of an Authoritarian Government. Glad we straightened that out.

  83. Jul, the NCAA had no right to get involved with the issues not relating to the present football team or any past players. It related to a man that wasn’t employed there anymore and a man who people say didn’t do enough even though he witnessed NOTHING

  84. Been wanting to say this for awhile - part twelve says:

    As a member of Team Evangelical, I have to publicly frown upon Been Waiting’s crudeness…

    …psss…but Bunu had it coming

  85. Jul, no actually that’s what you learn in comparative government, how different governments work, your the moron for not doing this in college

  86. JulStol says:

    “3 GOP “no” votes on John Kerry to be SoS: Cruz, Cornyn & Inhofe.”

    42 Republican Senators support making a guy who threw away his war medals our National Diplomatic Representative?

    And you wonder why I see no difference between elected Republicans and Democrats.

    Also, if Rand Paul voted for this @sshole maybe Jason has a point and I should rethink my support…as long as he does the same for Rubio.

  87. JulStol says:

    “the NCAA had no right to get involved with the issues”

    Komrade Mikey decrees what rights private organizations do and do not have!

    “actually that’s what you learn in comparative government, how different governments work, your the moron for not doing this in college”

    First of all, you’re* learn the difference.

    Secondly, if you weren’t such a brainwashed phuknut, you’d know that Communist governments ARE Authoritarian.

    You don’t learn that in school. You learn that through reading.

  88. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    I don’t see how anyone can vote for Kerry. I would advise the President to pick someone else. If Kerry gets ok’d by a majority, I’ll know that my consent was not needed.

  89. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    Wes is back???

  90. No Jul, they call themselves communist but they are actually Authoritarian that is what I am referring to. There is no known communist government, because there is no government at all and they don’t exist because there is no government.

  91. JulStol says:

    Michael (Re: 88)

    I stand corrected. Even a stopped clock…

  92. Jul, that’s okay on the committee thing, not many run for the spots anyway. It’s like that so we can stop Palbots from taking control

  93. JulStol says:

    “There is no known communist government, because there is no government at all and they don’t exist because there is no government.”

    Michael actually believes communism can work if someone would just try it the right way.

    Wow.

  94. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    First of all, you’re* learn the difference.

    -Shouldn’t there be a comma after you’re?

    Michael,

    Wish all committees elected their chairmen that way. That’s a very unusual system but I think it’s a good one.

  96. @95 where does that say that. I never said for us to try the thing, I don’t like the idea of not having a government and having to share food with you.

  97. -Shouldn’t there be a comma after you’re,?

    Is this right NYCmike?

  98. @97 your buddy Bunu wouldn’t like it though

  99. Tim says:

    #90:
    The vote was 94-3

  100. @rollcall: RT @meredithshiner: People are clapping on the floor for John Kerry getting confirmed 94-3 as next Secretary of State.

    I can now rest better knowing that Kerry will ruin relations with our allies

  101. JulStol says:

    “Punctuation is very important!”

    “I cannot write with any style or proper etiquette. I don’t know a participle from a predicate…”- 1776

  102. @rollcallpols: FYI, John Kerry was the ‘present’ vote on his nomination to be Secretary of State

    Even he wasn’t sure if he wanted the job

  103. JulStol says:

    “Is this right NYCmike?”

    No, this is: Is this right, NYCMike?

  104. JulStol says:

    94-3?

    I’m going to assume Rand and Lee were otherwise occupied?

  105. @106 lets just wait until senate pushes the roll out. Might be Boxer and King, both were missing yesterday for aid package

  106. JulStol says:

    “not having a government and having to share food with you.”

    Michael hates self government and opposes charity. ;)

  107. @108 ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

  108. Marv says:

    Michael,

    The Thule Air Base, Greenland is still open.

    How do you feel about that? ;-)

  109. Marv, I refuse to bring that to debate

  110. @ppppolls: We’ll have Cornyn numbers tmrw…nothing on a primary though bc it didn’t occur to me that anyone thought he was insufficiently conservative

  111. JulStol says:

    Religious fundamentalists who post pictures of Jesus on facebook while proclaiming all religions other than Christianity and Judaism to be evil because they” go against the one true God”, piss me off.

    I went the “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above” route to point out the hypocrisy.

    LisaB would be proud.

    Shame on Rubio, Toomey, Paul, Lee, Scott, and Johnson.

    They should all know better.

  114. @117 shame on Snaders, we need him so we can say bipartisan opposition

  115. Bitterlaw says:

    Deadenders’ rant about how only 3 GOP Senators are now even remotely qualified to run for President in 3….2….1…..

  116. Brandon says:

    I probably would have voted yes on Kerry. I tend to give presidents their picks unless they’re convicted felons.

  117. Bitterlaw says:

    Jul to rip Kelly Ayotte as a RINO in 3…2…1…

  118. Bitterlaw says:

    122 so you wouldn’t vote to confirm Jul’s ex-fiancée?*

    *Too much?

  119. Brandon says:

    Well I guess our 2016 primary is down to Cruz, Cornyn, and Inhofe.

  120. Bitterlaw says:

    Brandon – Cruz is off the list. I heard that he and Rubio had lunch together at the Chipolle on M Street. Damn RINO Cabal.

  121. Bitterlaw says:

    Chipotle

  122. Brandon says:

    Cornyn runs the NRSC so he is therefore too “establishment”, which means that Inhofe is the only true conservative left in America.

  123. Bitterlaw says:

    Inhofe is a Senator so he is also “establishment.” Damn. There is nobody left for Jul the Kingmaker.

  124. Brandon says:

    I guess we’re back to Herman Cain or Donald Trump.

  125. Bitterlaw says:

    When is Add coming back? Fighting with Jul is just not enough.

  126. JulStol says:

    Cruz is Canadian by birth and thus ineligible to be President.

    Can’t rip Ayotte as a RINO for this one. I disagree with her, but I disagree with Toomey, Johnson, Paul, Scott and others who are most certainly NOT RINOs.

  127. I hide can’t be won over by the idiots. He’s “okay” with McCain

  128. Brandon says:

    Would Ted Cruz have gotten where he is in the Republican party if he had instead gone by his given name “Rafael”?

  129. @130 tough decision, I might write my own name.

  130. Jul, in your book are all those on 132 considered true conservatives?

  131. W. PA Observer says:

    I seem to recall PPP arguing Bill White could win the entire cycle in 2010 until about three weeks before the election- then Perry beat him like a drum and took 40% of the Hispanic vote along with him.

    Then again, Abbott does look rather strong in that poll too – PPP means nothing to me this far out, who knows what Perry’s plan is? 14 years as governor is a damn long time- though he’s been very successful this term. Is Abbott their Attorney General? If so, I bet if he runs for Governor, George P. Bush will run for Attorney General.

  132. W. PA Observer says:

    138- Michael, Club for Growth being mum on him is possibly a good sign (for them not encouraging a run by him). If they were, “Steve King, HELL YEAH!” that would be worth an “Oh no.”

  133. @140 I know WPA, I just don’t trust that band of crazies

  134. W. PA Observer says:

    Interestingly on the Quin poll of PA- Pat Toomey is more popular than Bob Casey- and has a + 18 rating overall.

  135. @142 yeah, I feel he will be re-elected.

  136. Bitterlaw says:

    Where is MD?

  137. @144 did you check where your wife is Bitter?

  138. Bitterlaw says:

    Damn. Michael is growing up and fighting hard with a wife comment. Good job.

  139. Thank you bitter, the night shift doesn’t have to include just Walt

  140. W. PA Observer says:

    146- You do realize the context of Joe Scarborough giving his opinion, right?

  141. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Michael (Jeanne Marie for Lt. Governor) says:
    January 29, 2013 at 6:44 pm
    @142 yeah, I feel he will be re-elected.

    -Ok, Toomey is gone.

  142. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    If Cuccinelli did say that about the Social Security number, then he is DEFINITELY not as disciplined a candidate as McDonnell was.

  143. @149 yes, but still that could hurt the chances of Cuccinelli

  144. @150 no, you only have to worry if jul or Bunu says that

  145. Bitterlaw says:

    There have been some good fights the past few days. Good work, everybody. However, HHR is more than just fighting. No. Seriously. Tonight’s assignment is to state a Hedgehog moment that made you laugh. I will start.

    A few years ago, MD wa posting was a family party. He described the outrageous events and fights at the party. i was laughing so hard that my wife thought I was crazy. I couldn’t even read the posts out loud to her because I was laughing too hard.

  146. My favorite post was Lisab. This what went down.

    SusyQue: Lisab, have a Merry Christmas!

    Lisab: And I hope ou have a lovely Winter Solatice SusyQue.

    That made me start laughing in the middle of class I think. I am glad I don’t take that class now.

  147. Guess what? A family member of mi e is running for VA State House. Bad news, as a libertarian. I am not going to post a link because Jul and Bunu would donate.

    How would I know? He has $0 in the account now, and I would know after 10 minutes of posting because that family member would be acting like a fool thinking they are important because they raised money

  148. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    64.electric baseboard heater units

    -OUCH! What are your electric bills like? That is an expensive way to heat, isn’t it?

    Comment by NYCmike
    ***********************

    Bronxie,

    I live in the first all electric home in my county–built in mid 1960s and we bought it in 1979. Well insulated.
    Have 14 (not 13) electric baseboard heaters.

    Electricity (produced by coal) here is about $100/1000KWH.
    Eight months out of the year we average 1000 KWH/mo. and $100 per mo. electric bill.

    Nov., Dec. Jan., Feb we use between $150-$210/mo. for all electric, including heat.

    So heat alone in winter months cost $50-$110 more per month. Heat alone for one winter season costs about $350. Really not bad. Beats oil heat.

  149. Anderson Cooper tweet deleted because Malkin forced him into a corner

    @michellemalkin: .@andersoncooper You just deleted your tweet claiming Sandy Hook father was heckled. But don’t worry. Twitchy is forever.

  150. Brandon says:

    I laughed every time I saw JT went on his rants because the only thing I could picture is veins popping out of his head and him smashing the keys on the keyboard.

  151. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    MD’s telling of the family gathering he did not want to go to was hilarious.

    I also remember all the funny comments of Mr. Vito, telling all the inner secrets of the sock drawer, the MD household and A-Hole meetings gone bad.

    MFG would often have me in stitches as he ripped into one poster or another.

    I really miss those posters.

  152. Walt, HHR Senator, formerly known as Delegate says:

    If Perry leads Abbott by 3, how does he steack up against Costello?

    Wait…maybe Perry IS Costello.

  153. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    I would not have voted for Kerry, but those Republicans who voted for him don’t worry me because they did. The whole “give the President who he wants” vote is understandable. Wish they’d have that “let it burn” mentality with fiscal matters though.

    Funniest moment? the 100+ times Robbie got caught in a lie

  154. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    btw what is Tina paying Drudge to be so blatantly bias for the 49ers?

  155. W. PA Observer says:

    162- That and after spiking the Susan Rice trial balloon, the second choice almost certainly would be confirmed- and despite Kerry’s terrible sense of judgement, his status as the Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee makes him qualified for the post by any measure.

  156. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu go suck on car fumes as “been waiting…” suggested last night

  157. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    This is a “Doggy Dog” blog

  158. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    I don’t know I think I would rather have Bunu sodomize himself with a rust fencepost while eroticly asphyxiating himself to a picture of Ron Paul.

    Potato…Pototo

  159. Bitterlaw says:

    Poor Ray Lewis. It’s not fair to mention his extra “meds” before his coronation.

  160. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu, nobody clicks on you links. Your comments are almost as useless as a Candian’s

  161. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    SoHope i’m strangely impressed with your imagery

  162. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    if the Ravens win, I’d hope Dave posts a “suck it Bitter!” post

  163. Bunu, move to antartica. Be with your people

  164. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    Bunu, is there ever an ounce of truce to the crap that link?

    I don’t have to click your link to know you are a freaking liar. Google is your friend…well, it’s everyone else…you have you friends.

    “Sen. Marco Rubio went into Rush Limbaugh’s lion’s den on Tuesday and came out with a rousing praise and support from the conservative radio show host for the Florida Republican’s effort to reform the country’s immigration system.

    “What you are doing is admirable and noteworthy. You are recognizing reality. You are trumpeting it. You are shouting it,” Limbaugh said on his radio program during a 15-minute phone interview with Rubio.

    Limbaugh repeatedly commended Rubio, saying that he hopes he succeeds in selling conservative ideals to the public.

    “Senator, it wasn’t that long ago when your message was what this country was, it wasn’t that long ago where your message was a winner, where your message defined this country and I wish you all the best in reviving it. The country really does hinge on it, I think. That’s to you, and good luck,” Limbaugh said.

    After the interview, Limbaugh on the air called Rubio “impressive,” and a lawmaker who has lived the immigration issue “to boot.”

    “Is that guy good or what?” Limbaugh said. “Here’s a guy who doesn’t fear talk radio – he embraced it.”

  165. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    SoHope where you got that copied text from? link?

  166. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    ignore the typos in my last links. Long story short:

    1. Bunu Lied about Limbaugh – Rubio
    2. Bunu has no friends

  167. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    you forgot

    3. Bunu still lives with his mom*

    so does Mike but he’s 17, he’s got an excuse

  168. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    thanks SoHope

  169. @180 thank goodness you added that * I will be out of here to the dorms in 8 months or so.

    WPA, best news I have heard about that state in awhile

    I hope it will be 54-46 soon

  170. W. PA Observer says:

    180- Rush was very generous in his praise to Rubio. I wonder if it’s also a calculation that as Rubio is a product of the “movement” (his insurgent take-down and exposing of Crist plus his compelling story serves as an example of all that is right with conservatism).

    Really, a Rubio-Jindal-Christie- (insert others here) primary could be a hell of a sight to see.

  171. @183 I am glad Crist is gone, that party switching gnat

  172. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    Apparently “Been Wanting” talked his mom into kicking him out of the basement.

    Bunu will be moving into a Paul commune.

  173. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    @184 he’s not gone. he’ll be back as an even worse Governor come 2014 unless some miracle happens in that election. He was a mediocre but overall avg Gov last time, this time he’ll be a nightmare. Good thing is he won’t be able to run for re-election in 2018 per term limits

  174. W. PA Observer says:

    Having that Mass. Senate seat would make the climb in two years alot more doable- barring a primary screw-up or three – WV, LA (Landrieu set up an outstanding attack ad today by claiming there is no crisis in Federal spending that is not on Fox News- I think that’s enough to Blanche Lincoln her)- get us to 48 – then we’d need three of – NC, AR, IA, MT, AK, SD, CO, NM, NH, MN. etc- gives us a lot of options there.

  175. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    @187 right but Brown will have to win again in 2014. In 2012 he was a popular Senator and all but still lost by high single digits. I want him to run for the special and all that but I wonder if he can win w/ a more Dem friendly electorate compared to a special in 2014.

  176. W. PA Observer says:

    Even if we just got to 50- would I be crazy in thinking it would be possible to get Angus King to jump caucuses- as he is an Independent, from Maine, popular beyond a party brand, and could plausibly argue that it is in the best interest of his state to have it’s Senator be the balance holder in the senate?

  177. @187 I am just going to add AK (w/o miller), AR and SD

  178. W. PA Observer says:

    188- Right, but he also ran way ahead of the top of the ticket still – if the Republicans make a good go of it in the governor’s race. I’ve heard Tisei, the openly gay former state senate minority leader there, might be interested in a governor’s run- I think Brown could win, particularly against an opponent that is not a liberal darling like Warren.

  179. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Im not so sure about AR Mike. SD should be a lock gain along w/ AK & WV. LA & AR I have to see more to be convince they’re winnable but I think they could possibly be. I think NC is more safer for Dems then most think and IA & MA will depend on what matchups we get. GA could get interesting as well.

  180. @189 true, but i feel with WV, an LA added with any of those 3 the GOP might finally retake the senate. And who controls congress could influence the 2016 presidential election

  181. @192 NC I Absolutely agree, with many don’t recognize that Hagan has a big structure in NC.

  182. Tulipomania says:

    Rubio and Obama will be lucky if they even manage 10 Republican senate votes for the amnesty bill.

  183. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu nobody cares, don’t you get it? If you disappeared from this earth nobody but the terrorists would be sad that you’re gone.

  184. Author, i bet Bunu lives in the crawl space of that basement.

  185. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    How many straw polls will they have…that’s the real question…btw, you suck, bunu

  186. W. PA Observer says:

    194- She may have a big structure, but without O on the ticket to maximize Dem turnout (and they still lost the state this year) – she’s not in a great spot if a strong challenger emerges.

  187. Tulipomania says:

    If Obama and Rubio pass this bill, and the GOP can never again win a national election, we’re all going to be screwed.

    We can get revenge though. It’s going to turn the base into head hunters (get McCain, Rubio, Boehner etc) rather than a party oriented toward national victory.

    That’s the Rubio agenda.

  188. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    “rather than a party oriented toward national victory.”

    this comes from the guy who worships mr. 0-100+

  189. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    Hagan’s network isn’t any bigger than any typical first term southern senator. I would say it’s a coin toss against a decent candidate.

  190. @199 Ellmers or the rep from west Charlotte. Oh SoHope you know his name.

  191. Bitterlaw says:

    btw what is Tina paying Drudge to be so blatantly bias for the 49ers?

    Comment by HHR Senator AuthorLMendez

    Author – Why do you care about Saint Ray so much? Banned substances and pleading guilty to obstructing justice are no big deal. I an Eagles did those things, you would be rpping them non-stop. Ray Lewis is one of the greatest players in the history of the NFL. I don’t have to worship him or turn a blind eye.

  192. W. PA Observer says:

    200 – Screw off- you’re one step away from a Cthulu-cultist. Stop it.

  193. Bitterlaw says:

    a party oriented toward national victory.

    Paulbots aren’t even Republicans. What is this party that 0-100 speaks about?

  194. W. PA Observer says:

    *Cthulhu

  195. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    Bunu, if we all took up a collection to buy you an AR-15 would you do this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc2cPuwpqTg&feature=player_detailpage#t=269s

  196. @204 we all know he would do the same to the Panthers.

  197. Tulipomania says:

    Yep, out with the “Tea Party.”

    In with the “head hunters” (you can attribute this term to me)

    Primary everyone.

  198. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    I say Patrick McHenry gets it and wins

  199. Bitterlaw says:

    Encouraging suicide? I’m going to be blamed for this by 0-100. Zzzzzz

    SoHope – You are this week’s Favorite Evangelical.

  200. Bitterlaw says:

    0-100 must think we are eventully going to buy his crap (like Jul did). he wants us to believe that Paulbots are the GOP base, the Tea Party Movement and defenders of the 2d Amendment. I love the last one- Ron Paul doesn’t even beliee in the miliary having weapons.

  201. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    Jul is a complete, total, unmitigated fraud. He supported Trump who has given 3x more $ to Dems than Reps and also was PUBLICLY quoted criticizing Corbett for installing fiscal sanity in the public school system.

    Yea, a real torch carrier for conservatism.

  202. @215 he doesn’t want the federal government in my bedroom.

    So the American flag must be taken down in my room in Bunu land

  203. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    The first half of full metal jacket was the best part. The second half in Nam…not so much. Gunny had some awesome lines.

  204. Bitterlaw says:

    Primary everyone.

    Comment by Tulipomania

    Yeah – Paulbots do so well in primaries. Ron Paul – 0-100. Rand Paul 1-1. 1-101 is such a base to build upon.

  205. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    on the day of Newton, Bunu’s thoughts were on mourning terrorists being killed by drones, suck on fumes

  206. @216 why don’t you ask him about his GOP values while helping Clymer for senate in 2006

  207. Waingro says:

    #188, Brown will be fine in a mid-term out here, especially with a momentum after winning the special.

    The Dems won’t really have a viable contender after Hackerama Mackey gets trounced. I don’t think even Coupe Deval could take him out. And he is definitely running for POTUS in 2016 anyway.

    It’s 2020 (the next POTUS year thereafter) where he’d be in trouble and probably lose.

  208. Bitterlaw says:

    Michael – until you are 18 don’t even type the word bedroom.

  209. Bitterlaw says:

    never forget that Mr. Local Government wants Pennsylvania schools run and paid for from a central Harrisburg fund.

  210. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    What I have heard so far on the idea for immigration is not sufficient for my tastes. Not nearly punitive enough and it puts people who did the wrong thing ahead of those trying to do it the right way. Therefore, the crap will only continue.

    The reason we are in this fix is because some morons within the party don’t know how to debate without calling a Hispanic person Jose or a wetback. We lost the PR war. Lost it. The retards will never see that it was THEM who caused it.

  211. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

  214. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    224 – Oh, so he is for a central gov having strong powers. Yet, another conservative value.

    222 – only if the trend favors the R’s. Honestly, at this moment, it does NOT.

  215. Waingro says:

    #191, I’d rather Tisei go for rematch against Tierney in a mid-term where he’d win.

    Tierney BARELY won with Barry on the ballot. Even the Globe endorsed Tisei.

  216. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    Obama is exposing the fractures in the GOP without having to put forth any political capital whatsoever. None.

    Don’t think for a moment that the House is a guarantee to stay R. It would NOT take a wave election for that to change. Yes, it would fly in the face of history but look at 12. “Can never be re-elected”…blah, blah, blah.

    Still waiting for an apology from BruceDB and Tom Gordon or whatever his name was.

  217. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    i’m still waiting for azguy to teach me the lesson he told me he’d give me

  218. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    What about the anchorman? I don’t recall his actual handle. Oh, Ron Burgundy. What an absolute moron.

  219. Waingro says:

    #231, even Nate Silver, who I now will forever swear by, says it would take a wave. Relax.

  220. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t want that pedophile Gordn back for any reason. He wouldn’t apologogize anyway and he just makes my skin crawl.

  221. Bitterlaw says:

    Anchrman is a great movie. Ron Burgundy cheapened it by posting here.

  222. Waingro says:

    I have to admit Burgandy made me laugh with his “LANDSLIDE” posts, but, yes…he was a moron.

  223. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    They would need 17. Not going to say it will happen and as of now I put the odds at less than 25%. I don’t put it at 0 though and 17 is NOT a wave. I suspect we will have a single digit change yet again in 14. Early so that could change greatly in either direction. By this point in Jan of 09, it was plainly obvious to me that a wave was going to happen in 10 and we were going to re-gain the House. This is a different time. We have most of the seats that are possibilities. Sure, there might be a dozen to 15 left that are possible but the same can be said for the other side.

  224. Bitterlaw says:

    Michael – Fights at HHR used to be more intense.

  226. W. PA Observer says:

    239- I do think we’ve a fair chance at snagging back some of the seats in California and Illinois that we lost this time when O isn’t on the ballot – probably a good shot at one of the NH ones as well. A GOP romp in Texas could get us that Rio Grande district back, same with Arizona. Some of the swing seats in upstate NY as well. We’ll see though.

  227. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    240, I knew that was the video before i even clicked it.

  228. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    It is strange to me. Some of the same people who were telling me in July and August that Obama was going to be an exceptionally weak POTUS candidate in November are now saying that he was strong that we will see a rebound in the next election.

    Both of these things cannot be true.

  229. Bitterlaw says:

    Hope – GFY. I posted every day for more than 8 years and I will admit that there will be repeats. I retired some of them. I haven’t posted MD as a member of the Lollipop Guild in a long time.

  230. SoHope (The Global One Percenter) says:

    how about a challenge for everyone to post the most obscurely funny youtube link

  231. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m not ready to retire this one. It helped get me through those dark days after the election when MD left us.

  236. Bitterlaw says:

    Mt. Vito had money troubles. He was an escort.

  237. Bitterlaw says:

    Does anybody else think that Kate Hudson is actually a clone of Goldie Hawn?

  238. W. PA Observer says:

    254- That would make sense, as Kate Hudson is Goldie Hawn’s daughter.

  239. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    No. Kate Hudson is much better looking imo.

  240. Bitterlaw says:

    I know thy at mother daughter but I hav never seen a mom and daughter look so much alike? As for Goldie, she must have done mor drugs than Kate.

  241. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    MD in Burgundy’s defense, he did apologize and admit he fell for the Dick Morris predictions. azguy has yet to ever address his incredibly arrogant behavior towards his claims of a landslide.

    <Feinstein caught redhanded

    …URS and Blum have since banked on the war in Iraq, attaining a $600 million contract through EG&G, which Sen. Feinstein permitted. As a result, URS has seen its stock price more than triple since the war began in March of 2003. Blum has cashed in over $2 million on this venture alone and another $100 million for his investment firm.

    And it is not just the Feinstein family that has benefited from the war — so too has the Democratic Party. Since 2000, the Democrats’ Daddy Warbucks has donated over $100,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Committee including leading Democrats including John Kerry, Robert Byrd, Ted Kennedy, and even Barbara Boxer

    Feinstein’s resignation from MILCON was the least the senator could do to atone for profiting off the spoils of war. But Feinstein wasn’t trying to atone, she seems to have been trying to cover her tracks instead by distancing herself from her post. If the Democratic Party had any foresight whatsoever it would return all the Blood Money donated by Blum. From there the Senate ought to hold hearings and examine Feinstein’s tenure as the chair and ranking member of MILCON and analyze every single contract she approved which benefited her husband’s respective companies.
    There is absolutely no question — Sen. Dianne Feinstein has a plethora of ethics violations she needs to account for at once.

  243. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu, nobody cares. Nobody. Not even Willie will click your links. Nobody takes you serious. You unite this blog’s regulars, casuals, dead-enders, and trolls through our hatred of you. suck on fumes while praying to mr. 0-100+

  244. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu is truly a sad and pathetic case. Posts incessantly while telling himself he’s “tea party” and not a troll as nobody clicks on his links and everyone wishes he’d just go somewhere else.

  245. Bitterlaw says:

    Whenever Bunu posts, it makes me sad to think that children are dying of cancer and Bunu just keeps on living.

  246. MD (IP - Akin and Mourdock Will Win!) says:

    263 – glad you typed that. If I am wrong and there is a Hell, you will go there for typing that. Of course, I was thinking almost the same exact thing but you took the bullet. Thank you.

  247. Bitterlaw says:

    I do what needs to be done. Bunu deserves no mercy.

  248. Bitterlaw says:

    Bunu loves the Muslim Botherhood. It was the only Fraternity that would accept him.

    I agree with WPA. Bunu is too good for us. We don’t deserve him. He should abandon us.

    @PiersMorgan A child’s right not to be murdered by a gun supersedes ANY other right.

    This EuroTrash has been trying to get ratings standing on the grave of the kids from sandy hook.

    Why limit it to “murdered by a gun”?

    Why just murder?

    How about grown ups? Don’t we care enough about them to take away rights?

    Adios due process (Ammendments 4-8). A person’s right not to be murdered trumps it.

    Free speech has led to genocide…Goodbye free speech.

    Some could say the 10th Ammendment helped cause the Civil War and some children died in that…let’s ax that one too.

    Only 3% of gun homocides are from assualt style rifles. Ban handguns b/c they are the most used firearm in committing a crime.

    Morgan needs to look up the phrase “slippery slope” and quit being so stupid.

  263. Ivy S. Mckay says:

    During the Reagan re-election campaign of 1984, the Republican retained 31% of the Jewish vote, while 67% voted for Democrat Walter Mondale . The 1988 election saw Jewish voters favor Democrat Michael Dukakis by 64%, while George H W Bush polled a respectable 35%, but during his re-election in 1992, Jewish support dropped to just 11%, with 80%, voting for Bill Clinton and 9% going to independent Ross Perot . Clinton’s re-election campaign in 1996 maintained high Jewish support at 78%, with 16% supporting Robert Dole and 3% for Perot.
