    If that is true, why are you so afraid of the tea party and Ted Cruz?

    The loons ALWAYS tell you who they are afraid of.

    Some businesses have supported Democrats, but the vast majority of them have supported Republicans. When they say they are going to support opponents, they don't mean Democrats. They mean mainstream Republicans who have not drunk the Tea Party Kool-aid. The Chamber of Commerce will support mainstream Republicans because mainstream Republicans are who they have always danced with. And this is good, in that their money will be countering the money the crazies are throwing to the Tea Party. The Tea Party is in it's death throes right now, and sensibility is going to win the day for the GOP. The Republican Party is not dead. It is starting to come alive again.

    So much projection in that post. I used to be in the Republican party, then the crazy Tea Party Talibornagains took it off the rails. I don't belong to any party now, feels great...

    I think you are confusing sensible people with those people who stick their fingers to the wind, see which way its blowing at the moment... people who have principles don't, don't have to, do that all the time.

    So what you are really talking about is the other 85%, the real numnuts, those who either haven't a clue, are looking the other direction as they have what they need, at least right now and will figure out how to cross the [collapsed ] bridge when they come to it... the rest being the actual culprits that are taking our nation to ruin with all the limitless spending and taxing, no cuts to anything asinineness...

    Uh, no. And people don't invest in hyperbolic statements like yours either.

    Baggerism will destroy the status quo because it's agenda is in taking away far too much, far too quickly.

    It's almost a tossup for the ordinary people on whether the baggers are destroyed quickly or the GOP becomes fractured. In any case it's likely a win for a return of the US to some sort of normalcy.
    Even the odious Koch brothers realized this and told their minions not to drive the economy over the cliff. They must have looked at their balance sheets and realized a default would have cost them hundreds of millions in net worth.
