    Re: The Republican civil war is just getting started

    At this point in 2009 Dems were feeling confident, discussing Repub disarray and dismissing the Tea Party as too weak to matter. Then came 2010. Be careful what you wish for. Just sayin' . . .

    that is a huge blanket statement. So I take your saying all 47% who voted for Romney take Limbaugh as their commander in Chief. That all 53% who voted for Republican congressional candidates in 2010 consider Limbaugh as their Commander in chief. Your statement sure doesn't seem well thought out, at least in my opinion. How about those voters who vote split ticket? Out side of political junkies, I would wager 70-80% of Americans never heard of Limbaugh.

    I know who he is, I listened to him a few time in the 90's. For me he made sense on some subjects and issues and didn't on others. But no one is my commander in chief except my wife. When I was active duty military my commander in chief was who ever was president, LBJ, Nixon, Ford Carter and Reagan and working for the army as a civilian my commander in chief continued to be Reagan followed by Bush I, then Clinton, Bush II and finally Obama. By the way, I voted a straight Republican ticket in 2010 as I think our Representative should represent the people who sent them to Washington and our senators should represent the state which elected them, not a party.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You have it backwards. Only about 20-30% have never heard of him because they value education more.

    No freedom-loving person would vote GOP, because the GOP favors a large, tax-ridden govt. that tries to police the world and regulate the bedroom.

    The only ones who vote GOP are those that are duped by you-know-who into believing the GOP stands for limited govt.

    Today, the MRI by itself is considered a rather primitive imaging device.

    For most applications (i. e. spinal imaging), it has been superseded by more selective magnetic resonance imaging techniques (MR Neurography, MR Elastography, MR Venography, etc.), and none those technologies are covered by Obamcare, nor were they ever covered by any health insurer in the US.

    Yes, healthcare standards are better in the US, but only if one pays for it out of pocket.
