A great comment at Politico on the debate moderator choices:
Debate moderators were chosen for diversity - a network liberal, a cable liberal, a PBS liberal and a female liberal.
Bail out the union, screw the taxpayer. The GM bailout consequences get even worse
The Obama administration boosted its forecast of expected losses by more than $3.3 billion to almost $25.1 billion.
As much as I'd really like to hammer Durr on this, he is pretty correct that the TP has been co-opted - I mean Bachmann? Really?
In the end, though, it's the opposition's way of saying "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" (deficits,debt load, whatever you want to call it).
Even a Chicago liberal I work with admits that the TP originally had a totally legitimate message regarding spending and was certainly a reaction to Bush's bogus accounting and spending as much as any Democratic equivalent. Yet here we are years later because controlling spending seems to be anathema to the left.
Well like I said, there are many people who are both...Bachmann is a good example. But I have yet to hear any tea party rally or speaker talk about social conservatism at a rally. Maybe there have been those who do, but that just reinforces my point that they're outliers and not representative. Just about every speaker, sign and website I've ever seen from the tea party only talks about fiscal conservatism.

I agree. If the TP stays on message they will hopefully help prevent distraction from the major issue facing the country. Somebody needs to tell the Republican organization, though, so they stop with the BS that they're wrapping the TP around.
DWS is a paid ultra lefty bomb thrower... She throws an increasingly left base all the read meat they can devour. She's a great lap dog, and can read from the most outrageous script with seemingly no moral compass. She doesn't believe half the shit she spews, she's in it for the attention and self promotion. She doesn't question her chain of command, she's just like a puppet.
of course he did not "vote" to ban abortions in all cases because the bill never came to vote. he co-sponsored the bill which you can find here.
Sanctity of Human Life Act - Declares that: (1) the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human and is the person's paramount and most fundamental right; (2) each human life begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, at which time every human has all legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood; and (3) Congress, each state, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories have the authority to protect all human lives.
She is also a symbol of what is wrong with politics today. A no talent indivdual with a major role -- even the Dem's deserve better than this -- while I disagree with many of their positions on the highest level I can understand why some feel that way (even if it is wrong) the should have a better champion than her.
On the subject of the thread -- Paul is too yioung to understand that race starts at labor day after the conventions -- so I say to him "Mr. D -- unlock that thread!"
I think one of the qualifications for party chair is that you have to be an idiot. I'm not sure why you would want the job otherwise.
Looks more like a declarative statement resolution and not any sort of law banning anything.
I am looking forward to the Frode/Crofton vs. Soulman/Paul ticket. I might enjoy just a thread with these four but then would miss out on all the unintended humor that 5th and McCracken bring.

I would donate a limb to a Crofton/Frode ticket.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has decried the losses on the auto bailout and insisted that forcing GM and Chrysler Group LLC to go through bankruptcy first would have saved taxpayers money.
But President George W. Bush — who gave the automakers and their finance arms about $25 billion in his final weeks in office in bailout funds — said there wasn't time
Also note that Paul Ryan voted for the bailouts.
Detroit Hustles Harder
I ain't no VP, son!
Meh, you could say that NBA games get decided in the 4th Quarter, but that doesn't mean you don't watch the rest of the game!
Not to mention that thread was getting out of hand.
You still got some learning to do. Soulman's analysis are deeper then yours. And unless you are running to be a community organizer, you are unelectable with your avatar. Now Frode and Crofton are interchangeable.
LOL, that's just because sohlman hasn't learned that writing War and Peace on here isn't going to help his arguments against people whose minds are already made up.
question: of the self-identified tea partiers, do you think more or less than half support chick-fil-a?
My answer to your question kinda reinforces my point...I have no idea, because I've never seen a tea party website, editorial, etc. say one thing or another about it.
i'm guessing it's around 90% in favor. it would be dumb to even dispute that.
Well, they do have good chicken. But if I had a dollar for every time I found out an "indisputable fact" wasn't true...
well, that only took like 20 seconds. 5th newest article on the tea party patriots website.
90% of tea partiers or 90% of the population? I think it is more then 75% of the populations supports the old man has a option to speak about what he feels is right. Its his opinion right or wrong. The ultra libs wanted to make it another war on something but it backfired.
It's blocked at work, so I'll have to read it when I get home. I hardly think that supports your argument about "vast majority". And believe it or not, there are many people (myself included, and I'm pro gay marriage) who support the idea of limiting the effects of a CFA boycott just because their CEO happened to voice his opinion.
But seriously, let's not start this again. This is a dumb topic for this thread anyway. If you can't accept the fact that the TP is a fiscal conservatism movement that happens to have some members who have opinions on other topics than fiscal conservatism, I don't know if I can explain it to you.
