Yawn another debate

Well the 2nd “debate” for those seeking the nomination for the office of President of the United States for the Republican Party is over. The event was held on hallowed ground in Simi Valley Ca. Most of the candidates took turns lionizing Reagan and trying to convince us that they are Reagan incarnate. Did we expect any less?

Good crowd of potential presidents this bunch, something for everyone. The Republicans should be able to choose one of them to be competitive against Barack Obama in November of 2012.


My favorites are Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich. I wouldn't vote for either, well maybe Paul but they are interesting and entertaining. The professor always impresses me with his ideas for change. The Doctor, I just like his bravado.

Bachmann, Perry, Cain and Santorium, remind me of talk radio conservatives. Perry did well for his first debate, especially amongst those that believe the earth was created 6,000 years ago. The other 3 might as well throw in the towel, he whipped them.

Romney is the Chamber of Commerce's guy for the job. Just what we need now a man whose career outside of government was eliminating jobs.

The only one that seems electable is Huntsman. Although he did invoke Reagan he seems to me to be the best informed and most reasonable of the bunch. I would consider voting for him should he make it threw the tea party hurdles. Unless of course he picks a running mate from this crowd.

What say you.

j2t2, here we are, ready to play ping-pong once more. Lesser of two evils, etc.

The President is looking to spend another half $T and I’m quite sure his predecessor will spend a $T or two as well under the guise of jobs, jobs, jobs.

Meanwhile, three more trade bills are being readied for Congress. More of that sucking sound that Perot talked about.

Otherwise - - -

Woody Hayes, coach at Ohio State said…”There’s nothing that clenses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you.”

Any of the Republican’s on the stage last nite is fully capable of clensing the soul of America by kicking obama from office.

Roy, It has been the lesser of two evils for years now. How can we believe otherwise when our elected representatives give tax breaks to their corporate sponsors for sending jobs overseas when we have massive joblessness here.

You know, flushed, there were only a couple onstage last night who could hold a candle to Obama’s intelligence, and they are so far out of question to be elected that they are now inconsequential. The others are just a bunch of blowhards who don’t have a chance!
It’s so Jim Crow of you to have such a combined fear and hatred of someone whose biggest threat to some in this day and age, is his color. It can be denied ‘til the cows come home, but the bottom line is that it is…what it is.

Ronald Reagan would have been vilified by all of the wannabees at that debate last night. He would have been tossed right out, for raising taxes and cooperating with the hated democrats!!!

I did love the applause as Perry told about how Texas will execute your ass if’n you kill anyone there. And Michelle Bachmann’s Austin Powers-like ‘do!!!!!!

Boring debate or not, I say I will vote for a freakin turnip if it has the best chance of slowing down this massive push to the extreme left. We’ve got to take those sons of bitches out.

Seriously j2? All this time I’ve been operating under the assumption that you are philosophically left due to your comments…

“We’ve got to take those sons of bitches out.” Perhaps it is time for the Rep/tea people to form a recreation and physical fitness wing of the party.

What happens if the sons of bitches win?

Here is one I liked, The poor and the lower middle class are not patriotic because they don’t pay taxes. That is like saying that the upper middle class and the wealthy are not patriotic because they are underrepresented in the military. The Republicans seem determined to prevent the poor and the lower middle class from voting, especially the tinted ones.

The biggest applause of the debate: Rick Perry executed 234 convicts.

The gist of the debate: the upper middle class and the wealthy are going to reek havoc on the enemies of America, the poor, the lower middle class, and everyone left of far right.

The Republican debate: a love fest for the elitists.

Jim Crow permeated the scene like a noxious release of body gas. A thinly veiled disguise can’t hide that smell.

Adrienne I do lean to the left on most issues. But I also like to see both parties represented in a 2 party system. I disagree with Ron Paul on some issues and agree with him on others. I think he is to extreme to run the country but I like his stick-to-it-iveness The Newtster, I just like to hear him espousing the Toffler theories and enjoyed his series of lectures on American history years ago. I usually don’t agree with him but I like to listen to him on occasion.

Huntsman seeks to me to be trying to be the sane candidate of the bunch. He probably sealed his fate with his pro-science comments but it was good to see him actually say it. Huntsman seems to be interested in solving problems facing the country and for the repubs that is about as much as we could ask for.

Aw JLW, we don’t need to form a recreation and physical fitness wing of the party just to VOTE now do we?

What happens if they win? We keep moving further left, we keep losing rights and we keep failing.

Here is one I liked, The rich and the upper middle class are not patriotic because they don’t pay enough taxes. You know, their “fair share” as defined by those not willing to use their own money to support what they ‘say’ they support.

Tinted ones, eh? Are we really back to calling everybody who disagree with the Obama and his policies, a racist? Pitiful.
Tell me, are all the liberals who disagree with the Obama for not going far enough left, also racists?

“a love fest for the elitists”

I agree. But better to hear them discussing our future on TV than while hiding on a golf course, isn’t it.

Jim Crow? You better get a new talking point, that BS isn’t going to fly as easily as it did in 08.

“Perry is the frontrunner … just saying”

Tell me about it. He is almost the last person I want to have to vote for next year. But tell you what, that pile of turnips would be a hundred times better than the pile that has been dumped on us over the last 5 years.

Yes they are Adrienne.

Don’t bet the farm on it kctim. Remember the last Governor of Texas and the damage he left behind, well according to most he was the smart one of the two.

“well according to most he was the smart one of the two”

Doesn’t really matter, when the one needing replaced is number three.

LOL, Adrienne!

j2t2 - You’re so right about Huntsman being the electable one.

The rest of the debate? Let’s just say if I played a drinking game and took a shot every time I heard “Reagan,” I’d be treated for alcohol poisoning.

Adrienne that pretty much sums it up.

Reagan Reagan Reagan.

The funny thing is those on the right complain so loud when someone compares Obama to FDR or JFK yet it is SOP for each and every GOP candidate to claim the Reagan persona and has been for years.

Taxes Taxes Taxes. Do you find it strange that these conservatives candidates have sworn an oath to an organization, whose leader has ties to “Islamic supremacists and jihadists”? Huntsman was the only one I heard that disagreed with this oath.

Have to agree with all the points j2t2 made (*gasp*) except for that about Huntsman.

What most people don’t know — because just as they intentionally work to obscure and downplay Ron Paul in all facets — the media intentionally obscures and downplays Huntsman’s “job creating record.”

Huntsman claims that he, personally, created 12,000 jobs for his “small manufacturing company.” That is absolutely true.

What he WON’T tell you is that 10,700 of those jobs exist in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand and are 20-to-40-cent-per-day sweatshop assembly jobs that pay no benefits.

So vote for Huntsman: He’ll put you back to work (and it’s the lash if you don’t).
