I seem to remember similar chatter from the Rockefeller/Ripon Republicans back in 1976 and 1980. Or is my memory faulty?

I seem to remember that Gregg is the jackass that originally accepted a job in the Kenyan’s administration. Guy is a RINO and has been for years. He is not running for reelection. Good riddance to bad rubbish

The GOP ruling class believes they are still in charge, don't they?

In 2008, Gregg was a supporter of Mitt Romney,
LOL!

Generically, it’s like: “RINO warns Conservative has path to win”

They view Palin as much as an opponent as the Democrat party.

First three hits on Google... “Republican Judd Gregg”

In the Senate, Gregg was the leading Republican negotiator and author of the TARP program,

Feb 1, 2009 ... Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) is the leading candidate to become President Obama’s Commerce secretary,

May 5, 2010 ... Judd Gregg (R-NH) and Bob Corker (R-TN) are throwing their own side under the bus on financial deform.

I think what Mr. Gregg and so many other Republican males are doing is projecting. In their subconsciouses, they are feeling (not thinking), “Sarah Palin is beautiful, hopeful, confident, and principled. She makes me feel totally inadequate. Barack Obama is a slimy leftist politician of dubious masculinity. He makes me feel better about myself.

Therefore, in a contest between the two, I would vote for Obama, regardless of the consequences for the country. After all, I’m rich enough that $6 gas and $6 milk aren’t really going to hurt me. Screw those little people ... it’s all about my ego.”

Having reached this conclusion, they assume the rest of the voters will respond the same way.

...former senator and governor..

Former, being the key word here; as in irrelevant. Further this guy was nominated by the Obama administration for Commerce Secretary. He withdrew himself. He also was up for re-election but "decided not to run".

Does this sound like anything but another limp-wristed rino?

May the treasonous RINOs weep in misery to no end along with the socialists come the day after the 2012 election.

You are pretty right here. There was all type of talk about how the bumpkin Reagan being the nominee would give Carter a free ride to reelection. I seem to remember an article about how these Country Clubbers were pushing Reagan in '80 to have a co-President to mellow out the elitists. Their choice? Ford. What a disaster that would have been.

A “snippet” from Wikipedia:

Gregg has a moderate record on social issues. In June 2006, he joined six of his fellow Republicans in voting against the Federal Marriage Amendment. In April 2007, he was among the breakaway Republicans to support the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. However, his record on the issue of abortion is a solidly pro-life one. Gregg has voted for some gun control measures and against others. He voted against the Brady Bill, but in recent years has voted for trigger control locks on firearms and in favor of the ban on assault weapons.

On December 17, 2009, Gregg voted to extend Chairman Ben Bernanke’s term.[22]

Presidential politics: During the 2004 Presidential Election, Gregg stood in for John Kerry during practice sessions held by George W. Bush in preparation for the 2004 United States Presidential Election Debates. Four years earlier he had played the part of Al Gore for the same purpose.

On October 29, 2007, Gregg endorsed Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

Does anything else need to be said?

The nomination is Palin’s to have if she wants it. Thoughtful, articulate on the issues, and presidential - if she can project those on the road it’s hers.

Absent Schmuckabee entering the race, Romney and Pawlenty are her serious opposition. Barbour and Cain are dark horses. Daniels, Gingrich, and others slim-to-noners. I haven’t decided yet if Bachmann is a stalking horse or not, but don’t underestimate her.

If she is, Bachmann could knock Pawlenty, Romney, and Schmuckabee out in Iowa. Palin doesn’t have to win Iowa, just place ahead of P, R, and S. Myth will probably win NH, but if you can water down that victory, all the better. If Pawlenty can’t get mojo ahead of Sarah by NH I think he’s done. I believe he’ll gamble it all on Iowa.

I think where Sarah should put a decent portion of her chips is in SC. Barbour might help her there, and if Schmuckabee doesn’t jump in and T-Paw is weak coming out of IA and NH, it becomes a Sarah/Mitt battle real quick with a Barbour/Gingrich/Bachmann/Cain pack, of which I see no more than one breaking out of. Sarah could really get her mojo in SC.

Personally if I were Sarah I’d sow more seeds even farther down the line, especially in the Midwest, South, and parts of the West where Myth isn’t as strong. The West could be a real pain in the arse for Sarah and keep Myth in longer than he should. The Schmuck will be also if he stays in, however he might help to knock the Myth out, especially in the West.

Sarah needs to get to the front of the pack by SC. The worst scenario here is no clear frontrunners by SC. If not then we are in for a long fight. Don’t put it past Sarah to be a team player either, if she sees another good conservative in the lead, don’t be surprised if she supports that over Myth or Schmuck or Daniels getting it.

You know what, guys, I think she can win, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing, because I also think she can beat Teh Awesome. If you really think you can do better, step up, the sooner the better, or stop whining.

What a gutless, pussy Romney is,
hiding behind the 'apron strings',
cowering and crying under rocks,
while using and paying everyone else to attack Gov. Palin.

Sen. Judd Gregg: "America needs Mitt Romney's leadership
What I have found is that Mitt Romney
is the leader we need in Washington.
"


Judd Gregg Endorses Romney
"(Fascist, taxaholic, and Truther) Mitt Romney embodies my New Hampshire's values"

This year, the conservative intelligentsia doesn’t just tend to dislike Palin — many fear that her rise would represent the triumph of an intellectually empty brand of populism and the death of ideas as an engine of the right.

Sounds like it may be time for a true American Party, dump the Reptile rinos, Gregg, McCain, Graham, and the malodorous Left.....2012 may be historic in more than 1 way.

some political guru said something in a recent interview whoever runs in this next election will lose against Obama.
If they are relatively unknown it will help set them up to win the 2016.
If however it is someone who has already run, it would be their death because they wouldn’t be able to win after a third try.

I dont see how they think Obama is a shoe in to begin with.
if the economy is still dumping he is screwed.
