If he sticks to Conservative principles than fine, but right now he seems to pick and choose to make himself more popular. I do not buy into the Latinos will only vote for Latinos.

We had Mexicans running for offices in Mexican districts and got no movement.

Pray for America

I've given up, at least for a while.

I'm hunkering down. I'm going to concentrate on my land and improving it. Not full Prepper but definitely a bigger garden and probably some feed corn; maybe an acre or two. I'm going to fix up the old chicken coop and get some hens for eggs and meat. If feeder pigs are cheap this spring I'll probably buy one or two for fattening by next fall. So over the winter I'm going to make a smoke house.

I was out in the woods the past couple of hours down by my creek. Nice and pretty today. Sunny and mid 60’s. Quiet this time of year. Plenty of birds but not much singing as it's not breeding season. The red birds are starting to test fight. Anyway, the creek is pretty stagnant—water in pools and not flowing very much. I'm thinking about how to build a dam.

Anyway I think I've been inside the house way too much and need to be out there--away from the computer, too.

OK, I accept the fact that 3 Million more voted for McCain than Romney. But what is the fall-off for Obama? I suspect there was voter suppression on both sides. Always is where the campaigns are deemed negative and nasty.

Mitt’s ads against O were not THAT negative but the Rove ads were hard hitting, plus a lot of other independent ads and rumors. O’s ads were ALL negative.

I think the number of fall off were comparable.

The big problem here (Ahia) was Gov Kasich being luke warm hoping to be re-elected in 2014 after being trounced by unions last year on a Gov Walker type law that included police and fire. (Walker was smart in not including safety forces - which can make you look bad with the folks). O took credit for auto bailout which largly affects Ohio as much as MI. Also a new shale oil boom and fracking has helped lower unemployment numbers in the Buckeye state.

Ohio’s statewide elected officials (including Atty General Mike DeWine - former U S Senator) are all R’s but they sat on their hands. Gutless wonders.

Howdy snugs!

My county is over 700 sq miles and has nearly 600,000 people with around 120,000 repubs. We are outnumbered by around 20K but we have a great young group that is bringing some excitement.

What did you have for supper over there?

They are still counting the votes. Right now, Romney has 59,142,004 votes. He will no doubt surpass McCain's almost 60 million and could beat the Bush total of 62 million in 2004.

Thank you for updating the record.

I believe that there was massive voter fraud in this election, also. Like Holmes, I listen for the hound that does not bark. Where were the democrats this past year, especially summer and fall, complaining about those eeevil republicans conniving to steal the election with their dastardly voting machines, etc.

Nowhere.

Crickets.

I believe that the dems found newer versions of ACORN and similar manipulations for this cycle.

Another noticeable silence: all those disaffected conservatives who purportedly stayed home. Why have none of them had a word to say since November 6?

Jindal can parrot conservative principles quit well. The key point about Jindal is that he has NOT internalized a true belief in limited government or a view that government is a necessary “evil.”

&&&&

He ‘talks’ conservative, but he missed a huge opportunity to smash the Obama machine, when he failed to go loud and often against what they did to the oil rig industry in the Gulf. Payoffs from unemployment insurance and BP penalties are big govt knee-jerk responses, but not healthy for an economy to continue to provide good jobs and, dare I say it -— trickle down economic benefit for the entire region.

This failure convinced me that he bought into the benefits of big govt.

Sad, because he had a big megaphone!

YEAH!

I think we should compile a list of all those rocket surgeons, and ping them all to a "good beating" thread.

” Nobody died in Watergate, in fact, by today’s standards, compared to Carter, Clinton, Obama...Nixon did nothing wrong. Woodward is just another cog in the machine of RATaganda, designed to demonize and destroy Republicans, just like Dan Rather, Perky Katie, Stepinawfulpis, Prissy Crissy, Smarmy bitch Gregory et al. “

where is a conservative investigative reporter who could dig into and expose some of the secrets of our distinguished MSM talking heads and journolistas? i’m sure that these celebrity news-folk must have their own faults as did Gen Petraeus.

i think the only way to reduce the effectiveness of the MSM is to expose their pecadillos, which might make them a tad more circumspect in attacking the foibles of our more conservative brethren.

“Maybe the GOP establishment should be asking themselves why, despite running their fantasy “perfect” GOP Establishment fiscal conservative/social liberal candidate in Romney, the GOP turned out 5 million fewer voters in 2012 then they did in 2004? “

have you considered that a smart computer programmer could have inserted software into voting machines in the states, or possibly into the software of the Spanish company overseas that was to tally the votes on election day, which would have selectively dropped votes being transmitted for Romney?

I haven’t been cmmenting on the Sunday political shows lately because I’ve been going to church. I do appreciate those who do participate, though, and appreciate you hosting the thread, AB.

I hear ya on the “hunkering down” concept, AB, AND getting away from the computer. Hope you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving this year.

The administration intentionally made Rice the face of Benghazi for the express purpose of creating the racist straw man argument. Stupid Pubbies fall for it every time. Republicans should have asked her why the hell she was there since she speaks for neither the State Department nor the CIA and sent her happy ass on its merry way.

Yeah Sarah was MIA this time and we see the result.
I have been criticized for demanding charisma in top people but when you take it away you see what happens.


It’s always a clash of personalities to a great extent in celebrity-driven America. With Odimsky, you have a Stalin-level cult of personality. In opposition to a “messiah” like him, “polite and respectful” but otherwise dull and without controversy ain’t gonna cut it.

I think those plotting strategy for the campaign had addressed what in the heck they would do if something like the consulate attack happened BEFORE election day (like on the anniversary of 9/11*) ... how would they handle it? Somebody came up with a ‘protest caused it’ idea and they went out looking for something that maybe could spark one ....

I give the people running this administration more credit than you.

I don't think they went out looking for something that would absolve them in the event the "Arab Spring" fiction blew up. I think they took steps to create something they could blame such an event on. And I suspect they commissioned somebody to produce it.

Accordingly, I would very much like to see the purported Jew Sam Bacile (i.e., the reportedly Coptic Christian Nakoula Basseley Nakoula or likely Palestinian Eiad Salameh) on the witness stand -- explaining, under oath, exactly how this travesty was financed. And by who. And for what purposes.

I can buy into that scenario .... and they should ‘talk’ to him .... he’s pretty much been ‘kept on ice’ through all of this.

I have learned a few things this cycle.
I really think that any candidate can have some of his views modified.Marco would be no different.

You are so correct. Four years later and people still fail to grasp the depths of evil we are dealing with. I believe Asselrod has teams of people whose sole purpose in life is to find and catalog videos like the You Tube one. And these people are most likely being paid with our stimulus tax dollars.

On a brighter note, I defeated the Country club in our county yesterday and won the Chairmanship. This is a major defeat to the Establishment in Oregon and a win for the Tea Party.

Great news!!!Congrats, Bray!

well I meant “for the sake of argument” I accepted Romney having fewer votes than McCain, BUT I wanted to know if Obama also had a fall off. I think he did. People were not as enchanted or “fired up and ready to go” as 2008.

We need the real facts before we can fix it.

Already the GOP-e has it all figured that we have to drop the social issues (abortion, Gay marriage, etc.), have to grant voting rights to a never-ending flow of illegal aliens, etc.
