    Re: Palin says she's not leaving politics

    I wonder how many GOP types realize Palin would have no shot beating Obama. You might as well just swear him in now and be done with it.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    At least she's actually done a job for more than 3 years. Are you suggesting that Snowe is worse than Palin? Please.

    With the economy in the state it is, Tancredo might actually be sellable.

    Snowe's political views are worse than Palin's.

    I'm guessing that by 2012 the economy will actually play right into Obama's hands. It will have recovered by then, leading to a Reagan circa 1984 campaign. Like Jimmy Carter before him, W will be the gift that keeps giving for the other side.

    Not to me. But then, I'm another one who isn't a real conservative. And, you're right. The problem is that conservatives have NEVER been able to win an election without moderate voters. You need me, and people like me, far more than we need you.

    Rasmussen Reports: The Most Comprehensive Public Opinion Data Anywhere

    In June, 38.9% of American adults considered themselves Democrats. Thatís down half-a-point from last month.

    As for the GOP, 32.2% now claim an affiliation with the party. Thatís down four-tenths-of-a-point from a month ago.

    The number of unaffiliated adults grew from 28.0% to 28.9%.

    Over the past four months, the partisan alignments have all stayed with a range of a single percentage point or less.

    The number of Democrats has stayed between 38.7% and 39.4%. The number of Republicans has stayed between 32.2% and 33.2%. As for unaffiliateds, they have ranged from 28.0% to 28.9%.

    ...While Democrats now enjoy a 6.7-percentage-point edge over Republicans, they averaged a seven-point advantage during the first three months of 2009.

    The partisan identification numbers shift little from month-to-month, but they document just how dramatically the political environment has changed over the past four years. In January 2005, as President Bush was inaugurated for his second term in office, the Democrats enjoyed just a one-percentage-point advantage over the GOP.

    Folks like me, who aren't just fair weather patriots, are the backbone of this country. Don't fool yourself into thinking otherwise.

    What issues do you now believe should be held up as the litmus test for "real" (tm) REpublicans?

    Abortion? Gay Rights?

    A woman who is a hawkish fiscal conservative IS in fact conservative. It could be argued that her positions on abortion and gay marriage are in fact libertarian (keeping government out of the people's personal lives).

    Do you remember when conservative meant "supporter of small government and u.S. interests around the world"?

    You cannot be referring to Olympia votes for both porkulous packages Snowe as a fiscal conservative. Do you know how Senator Snowe sold that last stimulous to the people of Maine? Portland will get a new walking trail. Portland has enough walking trails. Women won't walk them alone because of the perverts who expose themselves in the trails. Just how many jobs will a new walking trail in Portland create? There are so many depressed areas in the state of Maine right now, and Portland needs a new walking trail? It's stupid.

    Right now the state is in severe trouble. With a freakishly cold and rainy summer, tourism is so low that inn keepers and cottage owners are in the red. Real Estate in this region still plummets and with the sickening new appraisal and mortgage regulations enacted May 1, we are screwed. Inventory that was just starting to move is halted. You cannot sell a $300K house in southern maine right now because of the new regs. Expect more foreclosures on the horizon. What will Olympia Snowe do about that? Oh yeah, we'll get that new walking trail in Portland.

    Nice use of prejudicial language. I work in a criminal justice field and have been willing to risk my life to protect the people of my community. You equate the Republican party with patriotism. I equate actual SERVICE to my country with patriotism.

    My boyfriend spent a year in Iraq and votes almost identitically to me.

    But we aren't real patriots, right?

    This is exactly how the Republican party will eliminate its own viability.

    That's great. I feel your frustrations. It's a shame you don't have an oil pipeline to bail your state out.
