RINO Field Narrows Further, Mitch Daniels is Out Too

And there was much rejoicing among us Right Wing Visigoths as yet another “Establishment Pragmatist” decided to “spend more time with his family“.

Well, they’ll always have Mittens “OgabeCare” Romney, but that’s about it by now.

Of course, with the number of SquishyCon Milquetoast candidates dwindling, the number of Make Believe Media articles telling us how this is a disaster, based on “Republican insiders” who will all tell us that the only way the GOP can win is by picking yet another roll-over, boring, socialist-lite candidate and we should, by G-d, listen to those Make Believe Media Journojizzmers and their unnamed “insiders”, seeing as how they’ve always had our best interests at heart.

Just ask President McCain, Rep. Scuzzyflavah and Sen. Crist if you don’t believe us!

Oh, wait…

Never mind.

Thatisall.

    I’m becoming a big fan of Herman Cain.

    The only criticism the “pundits” can come up with is that “he doesn’t have any experience in government or politics.”

    DUH … that’s the whole fucking idea! Don’t you stupid assholes realize that we’ve had enough of career politicians???

    The founding fathers didn’t intend for our government to be led by assholes who couldn’t find work in other fields and then decided to spend their lives in DC. They intended for citizens from all walks of life to come and serve their country (not vice versa) for a few years, then leave.

    All these “wonder candidates”, regardless of party, seem to have a change of heart after being “read into” their respective offices – probably due to their being made aware of “consequences” if the “proper” line of thinking isn’t followed.

    I’m sorry My Liege, but I disagree with your characterization of Daniels being “just another Rhino”. Having had him for my governor for the last 8 years I can tell you he is BOTH a fiscal and social Conservative.

    Indiana has the lowest debt load, unemployment rate, and has garnered the highest influx of new businesses in the Midwest under his leadership. We have had the lowest cutbacks in public services in the U.S. (only 2% reduction) while still either keeping tax rates the same or lower since he took office. He instituted a state cap on property tax rates so has to provide stability in homeowners future fiscal planning. He also recently signed a bill cutting off state funds to Planned Parenthood. He also signed several pro-gun bills this year alone.

    He’s NOT charismatic by any stretch of the imagination, but he has adult ideas on budgetary matters and good old common Hoosier horse sense. I believe that he would have been a very good , if not splashy,candidate.

    That said, I think my dream ticket would be Herman Cain and Alan West…But West has already made it clear that he is not interested in any more than re-election as a Rep. for his district at the present time, and Cain has an uphill battle to be taken seriously, and has zero experience in the Foreign relations aspect of the position. I also have great interest in Michele Bachman, but wonder if she really has the ability to get her agenda instituted if she were elected.

    We live in interesting and dangerous times and I think that this election may be the turning point on whether we remain a Republic grounded in personal freedom or sink either into a dictatorship or a civil war. I’m keeping the powder dry and the arms near to hand if it goes the wrong way.

Still cant say Im impressed by any of the declared candidates. I know I dont want ANY retread from the last go around.

    Or have you forgotten what happened the last time you tried putting words in my mouth?

    The term was in references to the sunglasses inside and the commercial he was involved with where he was talking about ho’s and drinkin’ 40s and a lot of other black stereotypes.

    Besides, kicking your ass would have posed no problem even in your prime – it’d take very little effort to beat the shit out of you now.

    Aren’t you the one who just called ME a racist because I compared Herman Cain to a fictional blues character simply because he wore sunglasses inside?

    Yeah. Because you’ve shown yourself to be a racist. (And a fucking hypocrite, too – but, being the pussy liberal hippie fuck that you are, that goes without saying.)

    I couldn’t very well compare him to a real blues artist, so a funny fictional one works.

    Yeah. A racist one.

    Where was your “outrage” when there were people here calling Obama quite obvious racial terms such as Sambo and lawn jockey?

    Where’s your proof that any of this ever happened, fuckhead? You’re making the claim – put up or shut up.

    By your failure to speak out against such terms only show your approval and acceptance.

    Because you say so? Fuck you, doucherifle. Your word isn’t law anywhere, least of all here.

    And I’m still waiting for your proof that I said anything like that, you lying sack of shit.

    Nope. “When in Rome…” would probably be more accurate.

    More like “you can dish it out, but you can’t take it”. But that’s typical of a libtard fucknozzle, isn’t it?

    I, however. have referred to him (Obama) as “Obongo” and that was just an amusing (at least to me) play on his name rather then a sinister display of racism.

    On the other hand, if someone here posted a picture of Obama playing golf wearing sunglasses and titled it “Blind Melon Chitlin’ hits the links”, I suspect DJ’s reaction would be to post one of his classic “You’re all racist! screeds….

    PALIN TO HIT THE ROAD

    Sarah Palin will hit the road this Memorial Day weekend on a tour of the Northeast — and possibly New Hampshire — aboard a red, white and blue bus emblazoned with the words: “One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty & Justice For All.”

    The former Alaska govenor will began her journey Sunday from Washington, D.C., after she and husband Todd join a quarter-million motorcyclers in the Rolling Thunder event to support the troops. She’ll leave the veterans and make her first stop at the National Archives, where she’ll stop by to view the U.S. Constitution.

    Details on where she’ll go next — and when — are unclear, but fans and supporters will be able to follow her path on http://www.sarahpac.com, where the RV’s progress can be tracked live. All an aide would say is that Palin “will embark on a One Nation tour of historical sites that were key to the formation, survival, and growth of the United States of America.”

    Antietam? Independence Hall? Gettysburg? Liberty Hall? Federal Hall? Faneuil Hall?!

    And eventually, Manchester, N.H.? Stay tuned….developing….

    She doesn’t have time, and neither does America. IMO, the President of the United States needs to be competent in:

    1 – financial issues (I haven’t actually heard a solid plan from her other than generalities about how we must reduce our debt – all well and good, but I’m sick and tired of vapid platitudes of politicians – give me some solid platforms on entitlements, bureaucracies, etc,. or STFU)

    2 – military matters (as C-in-C)

    3 – Foreign policy (as a leader of the free world and all…)

    Granted, she can’t do much worse than Zero, but then who could? I’m sick and tired of the “well he/she can’t be any worse than Zero” arguments in favor of certain politicians. This is a woman who thinks we should enlarge NATO to include Georgia and Ukraine. She thinks abortion is the most pressing issue facing this nation today. Sorry, but realistically speaking, as hideous as we may find the practice, this nation is on the brink of serious fiscal collapse. Abortion is the LEAST of our worries. And I’m not even sure what exactly she wants to do in order to even start reducing our debt. While I think she’s an effective marketer, she’s fucking clueless on matters that are important to me, and having her in the White House would be… uh… no fucking way.

I don’t care about electable or not. That’s what got us McShitstain in the first place. “Electable.” I’m done with that.
