  • Jennings Rides Again: Kristol Warns Conservatives Against 'Temper Tantrum'

    Qwinn to no dems

    Don’t. Voting for Obama will just send the message that the electorate wants -more- liberal candidates. If you must protest vote, write in Fred Thompson or something, but sitting it out or voting for the Dem will only be interpreted in ways that help the liberals in both parties.


  • Black Conservatives Rally to Urge Mike Huckabee to Stay in Presidential Race

    Qwinn to Kurt Evans

    “The consensus is that Huckabee’s campaign was deliberately sabotaged by Fred Thompson in South Carolina to hone out a two-man race between McCain and Romney in Florida.”

    Why yes! That’s why Fred endorsed McCain as we all knew he would!

    Oh, except, he didn’t.

    Sorry, but that baseless paranoid smear right there renders the entire post as dishonorable and paranoid as Huckabee himself has repeatedly shown himself to be.

    Cut that the hell out, please. You can post it one time and ping everyone with one post, you don’t need to spam the same thread 50 times.

    “Fred could not even gather enough signatures to get on the ballot here. Maybe that says something.”

    Entirely false. His team got 500 signatures. But, it turned out his team was unaware that all 500 signatures had to be from registered Republicans, the rules didn’t permit independent signatures. It’s not that he couldn’t get the signatures (you should know that’s utterly ridiculous, I’m sure we have 500 -freepers- from DE alone who’d sign for Fred), it’s that his team didn’t know about some technicality in terms of who was eligible for signing. You can bitch about that mistake by his DE team, but don’t try to misrepresent it as indicative of his lack of support there or anywhere else. Sheesh.


  • Study: Chicago Prostitutes Say They're Forced to Service Police Officers for Free

    “So out of one hunred cops, three have free sex with whores? 97 do not? 97%? More than 9 times as many cops dont have sex with prostitutes than do have the sex?”

    Actually, that should be “More than 32 times as many cops don’t have sex with prostitutes as do.”


  • Exchanges in Latest Debate Highlight a New Dynamic in the Republican Field (Fred Thompson)

    Qwinn to Old Teufel Hunden

    I believe the next Republican debate is on 1/24, so no, no more until after South Carolina.

    That’s not so bad though... a lot of people think he won the debates on the 5th and 6th too. Going into the SC primary largely held to be the winner of the last 3 debates doesn’t sound bad to me! Fred can do it, and he’d kick Hillary/Obama’s ass in the general and seriously educate the public while he was at it which we desperately need, the OP writer is an idiot :)


  • For all Freepers who plan to stay home on election day to teach the GOP a lesson

    Qwinn to Justice

    If Rudy, Huckabee or Paul win the nomination, I’m staying home.

    If Mitt or McCain wins it, I’ll vote, choking with nausea.

    If Fred or Hunter wins it, I’ll vote happily.

    Sorry, but that’s the way it’s going to be. The first 3 will do even more damage than Hillary will. Hillary’s liberal policies will at least be fought tooth and nail by the minority of conservatives who will at least be capable of filibusters. If it’s one of the 3 RINOs, -no- one will fight them.


  • My Fellow Evangelicals Blow It By Supporting Mike Huckabee

    01/08/2008 6:57:29 AM PST · 67 of 205
    Qwinn to Jibaholic

    You’ve had an evangelical in the White House for the last 8 years, elected with the help of many non-evangelicals, so please spare me the notion that non-evangelicals have been spurning evangelicals.

    I could understand the pro-Huckabee position if there -weren’t- a candidate that was right on pro-life issues -and- conservative issues. But there is - Fred Thompson.

    And not only that, but Thompson’s approach to pro-life issues (first getting Roe v. Wade overturned) is infinitely more realistic and productive than going straight for the (for now) overkill HLA which will only drive people away from the pro-life position and which this country won’t be ready to pass for some years, at -least- not until we’ve had 3/4 of the states largely ban abortion so that an amendment is feasible, and the way to start that -requires- eliminating Roe v. Wade and -then- fighting the fight among the states.

    But by demanding that no one but yet another evangelical, socialist or otherwise, will be acceptable to you, you are practicing the ugliest of identity politics. That and your other posts make it very plain that you are a liberal across the board, so why do you even post here?

    In addition to the other points made, Huckabee has rubbed elbows with some pretty rancid anti-Catholic types.

    “This is just a public opinion poll and may or may not have anything to do with registration. Dems cross-registering can still tell Rasmussen the truth.”

    Dems... telling truth?

    Come on now. Where ya been? This is the party that fights all attempts to require voter ID, that brings out legions of the dead to vote, etc. etc. They’re habitual liars and connivers. If they register in order to screw with the Pub vote, they’ll “cover their ass” by telling the pollster they’re a Republican just out of habit... when you’re pulling a con, you don’t tell -anybody- what the real gig is.

    Sure, it wouldn’t matter, no pollster is going to tie that to their vote, but it’s just the sort of habit of trying to be consistent in their lies that habitual liars are prone to.

    Sure, Republicans could cross over to pick the most unelectable Democrat - but who the heck knows who that is? I would guess it’s Hillary, but one, I don’t think she’ll need much help to win her primary, and two, I don’t think even the most evil and conniving Republican could stomach both registering Dem -and- pulling a lever - any lever, even as a means to sabotage - for her. Imagine the remorse if she somehow won, heh.

    Pubs have reason to vote in their own primary. Dems really don’t, all their candidates are pretty much the same, differing only in style.

    I expected something like this, but unfortunately I don’t think it’s because of conservatives “returning to the fold”.

    I think it’s Democrats registering as Republicans in states where party registration is required to vote in the primary, so they can screw with the primary results - i.e., vote for Huckabee or Ron Paul or whatever.


  • Thompson expects to surprise in Iowa

    Qwinn to Senator Goldwater

    “Rudy’s willingness to appoint strict constructionists to the bench preserves the sanctity of the 2nd amendment.

    If you believe he’ll actually appoint strict constructionist judges. I, personally, don’t. Episodes like him claiming that he can support a partial birth abortion ban -now- because it -now- has an exception for the life of the mother, when EVERY PBA ban ever proposed has had that exception, convince me that he’s full of crap, and willing to say anything, including slandering conservatives, to get elected.

    “This is a false issue and a media-created straw man that some GOP primary voters are irrationally fixated upon, which means they took the bait.”

    Oh please. I haven’t heard the MSM complain about his gun control position once, and would probably snort soda through my nose if they did. The complaints I’ve heard about it have been on the conservative blogosphere, and it’s a damn good point.

    “I square being “tough on crime” with making NYC a safer city than the one he found.”

    And he did well on violent crime - but he certainly wasn’t tough in any way on illegal immigration. He was in fact very open to it. Just so the record’s clear, his toughness on crime seems to be rather selective.

    “Strong leadership, less government, lower taxes, tough on crime and terrorism, bold defense of America, strict interpretation of the constitution and a willingness to appoint judges of similar temprement.”

    How do you square “less government” and “strict interpretation of the constitution” with his history on gun control? How do you square “tough on crime” with NYC being a sanctuary city under his tenure?

    “I supported Fred until the attacks came on Huck. If you compare the two’s proposed platforms they are very similar.”

    Um, you’ve -got- to be kidding. They’re not even -remotely- similar. They’re not even on the same planet, except on abortion, and even there, why doesn’t Huck taking tens of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from the biggest stem cell researching company in the world bother you? It sure bothers me.


  • Proof Hucakbee is lying about the moving cross

    Qwinn to N3WBI3

    I don’t think anyone “mistook” the bookcase for a cross. Yes, it’s clearly a bookcase. But it’s a bookcase deliberately framed and highlighted to appear like a floating glowing cross panning slowly across the film.

    It appears obviously contrived to me. Which isn’t a problem. It’s his lying about it so as to appear a hapless victim of an overzealous press that totally turns me off.

    He’s basically trying to create a “war on Christmas” controversy by sticking this in there, and then claiming that all the people who obviously see it are paranoid and delusional and out to take the Christ out of Christmas. I personally consider the -real- issue too important to condone seeing it manipulated for rank political gain like this, and hell, I’m agnostic.


  • Romney, Thompson criticize Confederate flag

    Qwinn to Eddie01

    Mitt’s answer was definitely fairly characterized as criticism of the flag, but Fred’s answer was not by any means.

    Mitt basically seemed to agree with the premise that those who display the confederate flag are racists. Fred specifically disagreed with that premise.
