    They use it to influence voters way to much in the south and they deal with the crappy Republicans because they are Christians.

    Georgia Republicans are nearly as bad as Democrats.
    Grow government, spend, spend.
    The politicians or their constituents? I know a certain man by the name of Neil Boortz who hails from Georgia. He votes GOP and I would hardly consider him a "big government" kinda guy.

    It will be interesting to see what Obama does regarding gay marriage, if anything. Note how quick he was to overturn Bush's stem cell funding directive. Obama feels safe undoing Bush policy because he can't go wrong with his constituents. Creating new policy in the social arena seems like something he plans to duck... at least for now. No action on gay rights, either marriage or the military ban. He's thrown the drug legalization faction within his party under the bus. And that's a HUGE faction. The DU board was in an uproar the other day.

    What's funny is I seem to recall him supporting medical marijuana prior to the election in 2000. Ironically, he appointed John Ashcroft to the office of Attorney General and he made a name for himself by throwing cancer-ridden grannies in jail.

    Most of the local Georgia GOP are absolutely retarded.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I can deal with the antics of the GOP. The one worlders pose a grave ideological threat to our nation and every human being on earth. David Koh might be the right man for the job but I hope he's not indicative of Obama's future Supreme Court picks.

    Perhaps so. Bachman is the one receiving more press recently, if you want to look a little closer at image and popularity. At the moment, it's anyone's time to shine in the spotlight.

    Is it fair to say that the GOP is officially dead yet?
    No, because that would be incredibly stupid. A recent example, we had several years of Democratic Party inactivity until Obama, Clinton, and Pelosi really picked up speed, and even then, we had to wait until the 2008 election year to feel like the Democrats were really going anywhere.

    Neo-Conservatism has yet to be eradicated by the Republicans.

    The same reasons not to vote for them.
    And yet if we were to evaluate their possible influence (or the influence the decades themselves have had on our at-the-time "future leaders"), we could easily say that Republicans will fail to overthrow that identity of accepting the basis of a welfare state (Reagan accepted it, even if Democrats and Republicans of the era wish to say otherwise). In terms of foreign policy, that remains to be seen what our identity will become with regard to this "War on Terror" (now retitled something incredibly boring).

    I'm not sure of that, the neocon types are overly religious and favor big government policies.

    I'm not really fond of them. Goldwater 4vr!
    Not really. Some are very religious, others are very supportive of so-called 'theocons' (or rather of the notion that a purely secular society cannot produce enough of an alliance to the betterment of themselves and of mankind), while others are indifferent or not really pleased with religion and politics.

    It will be interesting to see what Obama does regarding gay marriage, if anything. Note how quick he was to overturn Bush's stem cell funding directive. Obama feels safe undoing Bush policy because he can't go wrong with his constituents. Creating new policy in the social arena seems like something he plans to duck... at least for now.

    For some reason it is a dirty little secret of liberalism in the Democratic party to admit to itself that very few of its leaders are supportive of their measures for gay marriage or drug legalization. It should be obvious that it is politically unpopular to do so, and that many of these leaders to begin with aren't really for it.

    Also the DU board (I love going to that site, just to laugh) is in uproar about everything except its intolerant policies towards liberal dissenters and conservatives. The cream of the crop of pond scum are true believers to those types of sites.

    Re: Republicans Disinvite Palin to Major Fundraiser

    All stuff like this says to me is the left is very very afraid of Sarah Palin.

    Also helps highlight a noticeable trend though.
    Obama is becoming a dirty word.
    In fact you rarely see anyone bothering to defend his actions more and more its simply excusing contradictory policies, or at best ignoring massive spending because you know he's hope change and kinda brown enough to lie about being black.


    Reading the quote its clearly nothing but a scheduling mess up..........
    Good example of a reporter more or less creating news( iow "making a mountain out of a molehill") though. That type of reporting has become a major problem across the board.

    I can't speak for the left but I certainly don't see any reason to be afraid. She can't win. People don't like her. Even though it might be trivial stuff like her voice and her accent, it is what it is.

    That's an absolutely ridiculous statement. It was ridiculous when it was being slung around during the campaign. Nobody on the left is afraid of this woman, quite the contrary. It actually appears as if the right is afraid of her in some way. And they should be. If they ever want to retake the White House and Congress, they better get on the stick and start pushing people that are a little more viable than Sarah Palin.

    Not really. That may be your perception, but it's not reality.

    What the hell does this even mean?

    What I saw were stories about how she was "disinvited" and then later stories that appear to be the result of the GOP getting "on message" and now saying it was a scheduling snafu. It was FOX News who ran with it as a "disinvite" citing committee complaints about her actions, and stating they were "going in a different direction." What happened was this thing blew up in her face, looked bad, and then someone told everyone to shut up and get on message.
    *insert profound statement here*

    I laughed hard when I read this story. Not sure what is worse, Palin or Newt. A red neck brain-dead corrupt person with questionable morals.. hmm that applies to both.
