    I wish Brietbart would run.

    http://hotair.com/archives/201.....-election/

    Gee, what will McRomney do when Brietbard starts playing obamy’s college videos.

    Prediction…McMitt will DEFEND the most dangerous man in the world.

    • Steve

      “I wish Brietbart would run.”

      And you have a problem with Romney’s conservative credentials?

      LOL

    • GetBackJack

      I have a new bumper sticker which I wish I could post jpegs, but it says “Holding My Nose For Mitt Romney”

    • artboyusa

      Remember the old days when the party’s nominee was handpicked by powerful men making shady deals and shifty trade offs in smoke filled rooms? Now the public, or the ones who can be bothered anyway, get to choose from a line up of self-publicists, whack jobs, reformed adulterers, influence peddlers and rich ego-trippers and the one who scares the fewest people and has the most money gets to be “our” nominee. How I miss the old days (sigh).

    Brietbart will take the fight to obmay.

    Romny will hold hands with him.

    • proreason

      and besides, my main issue with Romney isn’t his conservative credentials. All three standing are big-government pseudo-conservatives of one flavor or another.

      The problem with Romney is that he’s a smear merchant. And not just an part-time smear merchant. It’s all the guy’s got, or he wouldn’t base his entire life on it. It’s already started with Santorum.

      I hear that he is being advised to tone it down some for Rick, because now that he has smeared everybody else, the voters are finally growing a bit tire of it. But I doubt if the merchant will take the advice. What else can he say…follow me to the land of Romneycare? Or maybe he could say the word “conservative” 25 times in a speech on the theory that some people will be fooled.

      lol

    • Steve

      “The problem with Romney is that he’s a smear merchant.”

      Remember when every criticism of Obama was called a ‘smear’?

      What are some of these smears? I still have yet to see any of them.

    • Steve

      “Or maybe he could say the word “conservative” 25 times in a speech on the theory that some people will be fooled.”

      Apparently, it worked. Romney won the CPAC straw poll. (Again.)

      “Apparently, it worked. Romney won the CPAC straw poll.”

      That list is a microcosm of Conservatism’s downward spiral over the last 25 years into impotency.

    • Steve

      I don’t know, TN. 2009 Seemed to be a good year for CPAC. —–>

      But I guess CPAC has joined Fox News and most of the conservative media and pundits on the list of traitors to the cause.

      And I used to think it was just liberals who like to stand on their heads and tell the rest of the world it’s upside down.

    • Steve

      I regret to say that the only thing that has become ‘surreal’ around here is your (now former) posting handle.

      In fact, you seem to have become the very thing you claim to despise — a smear merchant — of anyone and everyone who might dare to disagree with you, or even question your blanket assertions.

    • tranquil.night

      “But I guess CPAC has joined Fox News and most of the conservative media and pundits on the list of traitors to the cause.”

      Traitors, no. Funny and revealing to me that you continue to be so sensitive to my antipathy towards the moderate establishment though that you keep having to twist my sarcasm into the views of an extremist.

      Failures? Depends on perspective I guess. Of the winners on the list you posted, the last one who I would even call a limited government Constitutionalist is Reagan. But I’m open to learning about the great successes of Conservatism I’ve apparently missed this era in all my ideological zeal.

      2009 was the last sane year at CPAC. I won’t go through why I think Romney actually was the sane choice in 09 (although I’ll probably be prompted to). Rush’s speech is the precise moment that politically activated me, whereupon I shortly thereafter learned of this blog when it won BotY.

      In 2009, Conservatives were sobered by the total shellacking they took which focussed them on what it is we claim to believe in and how it’s under assault. It wasn’t the clown show of narcissistic personalities that year that it was before or since when everybody cares way more about being a leader in the parade.

    • artboyusa

      “CPAC Straw Poll Winners:

      …2007 Mitt Romney
      2008 Mitt Romney
      2009 Mitt Romney
      …2012 Mitt Romney”

      Gee, I guess this is his famous “electability”, huh? I’m completely reassured abot November now. Its in the bag!

    • Steve

      “But I’m open to learning about the great successes of Conservatism I’ve apparently missed this era in all my ideological zeal.”

      Thanks to the historic conservative landslide of 2010, more than 700 Democrat seats across the land became Republican seats. The US House is more conservative than it has ever been in my lifetime.

      States are passing right to work laws. They are trying to do away with their income taxes. They are taking on the unions. They are trying to balance their budgets.

      But perhaps with all your ideological zeal, you should run for office, and show everyone how things should be done?

    • tranquil.night

      “Thanks to the historic conservative landslide of 2010, more than 700 Democrat seats across the land became Republican seats. The US House is more conservative than it has ever been in my lifetime.”

      In essence proving my point: limited government Constitutionalism had become a minimal force with barely any political capital, I argue. at the end of the day, because of a lack of leadership. I’m not trying to be critical or holier-than-thou as much as factual, although respectfully, you’re in no position to judge to what degree I’ve personally invested in trying to be the most effective I can be to the extent possible my circumstances.

      It took Barack Obama’s crusade to fundamentally transform this country to respawn Conservativism in the public arena.

      All I’m trying to throw out there is that if those Tea Partiers who rose up in droves end up with a Republican president who is going to tell them to basically go pound sand half the time after they vote him in, then I think the 2010 election is going to be remembered as an era as short-lived as the 2006-08 Liberal wave. End result I think is the country teeters stagnate and at an unnecessarily prolonged brink point – while honest people endure hardship. Stopping that is all that motivates me.

      There’s my campaign’s first draft speech.

    • BigOil

      Steve makes an important point concerning winning state elections. Reasserting states rights may be our only way to preserve our individual rights and liberties. We tend to focus inordinately on the federal elections because the federal monster has become so oppressive it affects every aspect of our lives.

      Our conservative House could not even muster the courage to prevent locking in another 2.4 trillion in deficit spending – and just for good measure – turning over to Barry the power to unilaterally tack on at least another trillion. If that is the best wen can do, I do not see how the federal government is fixable. Austerity measures required to prevent the US from becoming the next Greece are not even close to the radar screen.

    • Melly

      Proreason, Santorum is accusing Romney (and Ron Paul in years past as indicated below) of “rigging” the straw poll, the standard complaint of candidates who lose such contests. It’s impressive when someone can do as well as Santorum did at CPAC without spending much money. But the ability of a campaign organization to identify supporters and turn them out to vote is precisely what large straw polls measure. Romney beat Santorum fair and square.

      “Part-time smear merchant?” my, you do have a penchant for hyperbole, or is it a case of being doctrinaire ad absurdum? Romney has been adroit at distinguishing his record and experience from the other candidates. Maybe you need to be edified as to what constitutes smear? For instance take the following themes that were used in campaign ads in 2010: Steve Poizner ran an ad accusing former eBay CEO Meg Whitman of promoting pornography, or an electoral challenger accuses nine-term Orleans Parish coroner Dr. Frank Minyard of participating in an organ harvesting ring, or Sestak’s ad that showed Specter suffering the ill-effects of chemotherapy, or John McCain charging that his opponent, former congressman J.D. Hayworth, is a conspiracy theorist who believes Obama was “secretly” born in Kenya.

      First “Mittens” was too weak and timid for you. Then he was a RINO. Currently, his conservative credentials seem not to weigh heavily on you. The deal breaker for you now appears to be Romney’s steadfastness in dragging the truth screaming and kicking into the light exposing his opponent’s as the prevaricating pretenders for which they are. I am sure you will be further illuminated when Romney shines the spotlight on — oh, I mean smears —- the pseudo-conservative (as you refer to him) Santorum’s big government, more government, government now record.

      @Melly

      Perhaps you could share with everyone Romney’s Conservative credentials under these conditions:

      1. No flip-flops can be counted. Anyone over the age of 40 AND went to an Ivy League school, does not have a change of heart, reversal, or epiphany. So his liberals views in the past are LOCKED down, and no one will believe any differently. His losing debate with Ted Kennedy in 1994 told us all we needed to know about Romney, regardless of all the creative excuses and denials.

      2. No excuses. “I was in a blue state!” is not an excuse. Scott Walker, Tommy Thompson, Chris Christie, John Kasich, and any number of Gov. from Florida, are/were in blue states, STUCK THEIR NECK OUT, and they still got things done. Gov. Thompson got WELFARE REFORM, and strong armed Clinton to go along with it! –pretty good! Romney is the only one who can’t back-up his conservatism, and certainly didn’t ever want to defend it, but hides behind excuses.

      Here is what Romney has touted as his credentials recently:
      ~”I am in business.”
      ~”I am married and have children.”

      Apparently, liberals don’t do those things. We don’t need a president who WILL do things, we already have one that got the Nobel Peace Prize for what he WILL do. We have the same question to Romney as we had with Obama, “What do you have to show on your resume?”

      Explain, why on Earth would we want a liberal Harvard graduate, socialized medicine man, global warming nut, pro-abortion, anti-gun, snobby Northeasterner when WE ALREADY GOT ONE?

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS VIDEO TO ME
    CPAC protesters, from Breitbart: http://www.breitbart.tv/dana-l.....t-of-cpac/

    1. Why in the world are they just escorted out of the building, and allowed to walk home?

    2. Why aren’t they pepper sprayed, or tazered like the famous “Don’t taze me bro!” –guy, when John Kerry was giving a speech?

    3. Why aren’t these people charged with disorderly conduct?

    4. Why doesn’t the media follow them to their cars, get their plate numbers and find out who they are? Then we can protest at their homes, see if they are registered communists etc. “Man-up, tell us your name?”

    All you have to do, is prepare the audience for the inevitable protests. Stand up, form a circle around the dirtbags, back away from the pepper spray , let security drag them out of the building, then resume the speech.

    Does it just seem strange to see these people buy tickets, protest and disrupt, get kicked out as if it was a movie theatre, giggle and laugh about it all the way down the street? Where is the disincentive to do this again in the future? You do this with anyone else, and they throw the book at you.

    • Steve

      Many, if not all, of the protesters at CPAC were paid by the AFL-CIO.

      The hotel where CPAC is being held is unionized. The DC police are unionized. The newspapers and the rest of the local news media are unionized.

      QED

    • Mithrandir

      I don’t see any reason why Republicans can’t have their own security pepper-spray these people. Or better yet, have the citizens pepper-spray them. Sheesh! I have seen plenty of BOUNCERS on campus treat people rougher than anything I saw on that video.

      Either way, it’s just another missed opportunity, I don’t know why Republicans continue with their failed strategies: “Let’s play nice, and eventually the American population will discover how adult, rational, kind, tolerant we are if we play by the rules, and the Democrats don’t.”

      That has worked out great. We got DADT repealed, Obamacare rammed down our throat, 2 liberal Supreme Court justices, gay marriage all over America, Obama can raise the debt ceiling at will without Congress, we get involved in more Arab conflicts than we can afford, recall elections in Wisconsin, barbarian protesters running wild at will without fear……

    Who needs four more years.. by this reckoning.. that would be THREE MILLION more homeless and poor Americans, if the last term is anything to go by..

    America’s homeless resort to tent cities
    Monday, 13 February 2012

    Panorama’s Hilary Andersson comes face to face with the reality of poverty in America and finds that, for some, the last resort has become life in a tented encampment.

    Conditions are unhygienic. There are no toilets and electricity is only available in the one communal tent where the campers huddle around a wood stove for warmth in the heart of winter.

    Ice weighs down the roofs of tents, and rain regularly drips onto the sleeping campers’ faces.

    Tent cities have sprung up in and around at least 55 American cities – they represent the bleak reality of America’s poverty crisis.

    According to census data, 47 million Americans now live below the poverty line – the most in half a century – fuelled by several years of high unemployment.

    Depression-type poverty

    There are an estimated 5,000 people living in the dozens of camps that have sprung up across America.

    These tent cities – and this level of poverty – are images that many Americans associate with the Great Depression.

    Unemployment in America today has not reached the astronomical levels of the 1930s, but barring a short spike in 1982, it has not been this high since the Depression era.

    There are now 13 million unemployed Americans, which is three million more than when President Barack Obama was first elected.

    The stark reality is that many of them are people who very recently lived comfortable middle-class lives.

    For them, the economic downturn came too fast and many have been forced to trade their middle-class homes for lives in shelters, motels and at the far extreme, tented encampments.

    Police: Philadelphia student, 14, assaulted teacher, 60
    ABC Local: http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/st.....id=8541827

    MOUNT AIRY – February 13, 2012 (WPVI) — A 60-year-old science teacher has been treated and released from Albert Einstein Medical Center after an assault by a student on Monday morning.

    Dislocated shoulder, 2 dislocated thumbs, black eye, nose / mouth. Apparently, because of a bad homework grade. If you look through these links, look at the average scores for math and science for this school–abysmal. Also look at how many students are labeled disabled or have IEPs! IEPs are usually given for students who are severely behind their peers, (2 or more grade levels) or may have mild mental retardation /autism / other learning disabilities, etc. but not enough to be labeled full-blown mentally retarded.

    For those of you know are familiar with my opinion on teachers, THIS is why they need protection. If you don’t want to them to join unions, give them protections in contracts outside of unions. Identify and drum-out all the teachers who have no skill, b/c as I have said before, the education students are the dumbest on campus, outside of the ethnic and gender studies majors. Institutionalize the students who need it. Protect the few talented teachers like they are pure gold, because they surly are. –look at those videos…..totally disgusted!

    Awesome: New Santorum Ad – “Rombo”

    Ad of the primary.

  7. Anonymoose

    From the “You can’t make this up” department:

    http://www.reuters.com/article.....P720110609

    So, unelected co-president, Senator of a state she’d never lived in, Secretary of State with no background in diplomacy, failed presidential candidate, and now head of the World Bank.

    Why not?

    I think this move may have a lot to do with Bradley Manning; by releasing all those State Department cables all of Hillary’s dirty laundry is out in the open so forget the presidency. The media would cheerlead if they could get Obama out of the way, but in the international arena she’d be toast.

    So she leaves government life for a semi-public position and gets more of what she has craved from day one–POWER. Hillary is the embridlement of limitless and unsatisfied ambition. Nothing will satisfy her or end her quest for more.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Such is the typical life and asperations of a bull-dyke. They are angry they were not born with testicles and thus spend their lives trying to prove they have bigger ones than any elephant. It’s sad, really. Sure, it sounds bigoted but…I’ve always said, the reason we have stereotypes is because people act stereotypically. I know I do. I’m not afraid or offended when someone points it out.

      There’s actually nothing wrong with it. It is therefore not surprising that Hitlery would seek power and now finally be able to afford the kind of women she wants and play with them in the privacy she desires as well, without any public eyes on her.

      We’ve all had people in our lives like her, from the school-teacher to maybe a commander in the military, who had a very muscular neck and preferred “comfortable shoes” over heels. Then, you find yourself at the club competing for the same women over drinks and then going home saying, “What the hell just happened?”.

      For the terminally politically correct, they are ashamed to even think such things but remember, shame is an internal emotion and we are still entitled to our own private thoughts. In there, one can think and create and imagine and put pieces together. And during our day-to-day activities, there is nothing, no government, no law, nothing that can stop you from observing the obvious and making your own assessment.

      This is how thinking should be done. Not in a room so much with other like-minded people. That only serves to validate or discredit any sole and separate thoughts. And it’s also sometimes a weak substitute for pure, independent thought. Changing one’s mind to appease the other “thinkers” has two sides to it. Did one change their mind because they were made aware of and saw the flaw in their reasoning, or, did one change their mind because they wanted to be accepted by the group?

      I have never changed my mind to be accepted. It has cost me and it has also rewarded me, sometimes many years after I made my assertions. I’ve had people come to me years later and say, “You know, when you talked about so-and-so, I remember I disagreed with you and thought you were nuts. But now that I’ve worked with them for some time, I see exactly what you were talking about and I’m afraid I was the one who was wrong.”

      So, watch this space. And no, other than her political bent, I’m not saying that being a bull-dyke is necessarily a bad thing. I think she’d do better in life if she just admitted it instead of all her insiders already knowing it but not mentioning it. Personally, I don’t care what her “orientation” is. I don’t like her for a multitude of other reasons but her sexual proclivities, although her own business, are advertised with every statement, every action, every article of clothing she wears.

      Yes, for bull-dykes there is a certain psychological profile. No, this is not the same as a “strong woman”. This is a woman who is angry that she’s not a man. And, hates men because of it.

    JayZ has been pretty busy with the new baby to visit the WH. Too busy with his new vulgar profanity rap song for his baby girl. Poor child to be raised with such filthy language and violence.
