    I find this to be ridiculous. a large portion of them will vote third party once the GOP nominates another phony "maverick" like McCain.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Ron Paul is clearly the best choice for conservatives.

    There is going to be a lot of people who voted in 2008 staying home.

    But they didn't support McCain which in part is why he lost. They will vote. It's still a question who they will vote for. They won't default to the lesser of two evils.

    I suspect that's true. There will also be a lot people who voted in 2010 staying home, and a lot of people who didn't vote in 2010 who will be going to the polls.

It might result in more republicans being thrown out of congress but those dissatisfied voters aren’t going to benefit Obama.


    In other words, it is a false sense of security to claim that republican approval ratings are lower than Obama’s or the democrats.
    JAR at this point are pretty meaningless in terms of next year's election. Both Reagan and Clinton had JAR in the 30's during their first term; both went on to be re-elected. In 1980, Carter had a JAR of 58% ... lost his re-election 10 months later. GHW Bush had a JAR of 89% ... a year and a half later, he too lost his re-election. Bush had a JAR as low as 41% in 2004 ... but just 5 months later, he was re-elected. Conservatives may celebrate Obama's low JAR, but if they think this predicts he will lose next year, they are fooling only themselves.

    You're listening to teabaggers... no wonder. You should be listening to the "tea party". See, there's a difference.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well, that's a problem, actually, because there is no "the tea party". There are a bunch of different groups with different agendas who use the words tea and party in their names, and most of them are bankrolled by the Koch brothers.
