Well-written, and flaming.

When someone who's proud of executing innocent people says you have no heart, perhaps the wise reaction is to look in the mirror. Hard.


What was fun was watching Rove and Hannity try to make the case that people clammoring for Christie to enter the race somehow showed that Republicans are actually happy with the field they currently have. Obama might have problems, but like Clinton, he is blessed with having enemies that are so driven to the right to try to keep the base in line that they are not electable in a country wide race.


Christie won't be running for POTUS. He's having to much enjoyment being Gov. of NJ, where his approval rating is 56%. Doing what he is doing now is his passion, not running for Prez.

The field of candidates for the GOP is still better than in 2008 & the field for the Dems - well, let's say that the shiny gold has left and been replaced by tarnish and found to be fools good. It's all the fault of the Tea Party sons of bitches- right ?

Christie's approval is at 54% (not 56%). It shot up 10 points after he called out congressional Republicans for playing politics with disaster relief (in the wake of the NJ flood).

Moral Voice

Maybe the fat man can ride around in an open top car like FDR did and just drive onto the stage and never get out.

Where did you read that ?

Puget Sound Blathers

The 2012 election is shaping up as a competency election or referendum on Pres Obama.
Are you better off today then you were 4 years ago will be the number one question people ask. And if not, is Pres Obama the one to get us to a better place?

The party faithful for the Dems will blame the Repubs, but the first two years of Pres Obama's administration he largely had veto proof majorities. He could have gotten any legislation he wanted with the support of his own Party.
Yet he failed to get it done.

The last two years have forced him to deal with the Repubs and it has been even worse.

Oh, it must be disheartening for the Progressives who haven't gotten any of the promised talking points/campaign promises that they wanted. The signature achievement, Healthcare, is not even close to what the Progressives envisioned.

If the Repubs can manage to nominate a centrist like Romney with a Rubio as VP, it will not gin up enough worry among the left who may vote with their feet -not voting- rather than get worried about the Repubs Moral Majority type like Sarah Palin.

Chris Christie is better for Repubs in the Administration such as Secretary of Education.

Bill Lawson Nazole

What are his actual qualifications for being President? How does he stand on the really important issues? You know, gay marriage and abortion...

How about hearing him debate Romney or Perry about how they are going to fix the economy and 'save the country' since they say that Obama is unable to do it? Oh, that's right, I forgot... The Republicans will never engage in an actual debate. It might expose them for being the phonies they are.

Hey, I've got an idea... Why don't we elect another moron like GW Bush? What were Rick Perry's (M Texas) grades?

He rarely earned anything above a C in his courses -- earning a C in U.S. History, a D in Shakespeare, and a D in the principles of economics. Perry got a C in gym.

Perry also did poorly on classes within his animal science major. In fall semester 1970, he received a D in veterinary anatomy, a F in a second course on organic chemistry and a C in animal breeding.

Yes, Republicans, Yes... The country is in economic crisis. Let's elect someone who got a D in economics to 'getter dun'. Maybe we can invade Australia this time.

Republicans are simply too stupid.
