    Re: Dems thrilled as tea party win stuns Delaware GOP

    Honestly, I think Sarah Palin supports the Tea Party because it offers her a chance to take-out the GOP establishment that will never nominate her for a presidential run in 2012. She has known this since the 2008 elections and has supported Tea Party candidates ever-since. Thus, I think this is nothing more than her attempt at political career preservation.

    Well here's a positive thing for the Dems.

    If Sarah Palin runs for President in 2012 as TEA Party... that splits the Conservative vote between the TEA Party and whoever the Republicans put up...

    Meaning an automatic Democrat win.

    If he's not going to vote against a thing like cap and trade, we might as well elect a marxist.

    Besides, the republicans and dems are going to be in for another surprise when she clobbers Coons.

    You guys love that word, Marxist. I just wish you knew what it meant.

    That said, the fact is the problem voting on one single issue, is that there are many issues that effect us. So, if you lose, and thus lose not only that one issue, but many others you might not have lost, did you win or lose with your vote? Are you better or worse for it?

    We're trying to improve the republican party not keep it the same. As far as I'm concerned, the dems are welcome to Christ.

    I dunno... I'm in the minority that thinks she has no interest in running for president in 2012. Just too soon, and she's very inexperienced. But I do think she may have some interest in running for president at some later date, or maybe start out with a Senate bid in 2014. She's still relatively young, so there's plenty of time for her.

    It should be noted that she does not always support the Tea Party 100%... for example, in New Hampshire she backed Kelly Ayotte, who just barely won, over the more conservative Tea Party favorite in the race. IMO, this may have something to do with Ayotte being a woman... Palin has shown a strong bias towards female candidates recently.

    Even if Palin does run in 2012, she's not stupid enough to run on a 3rd party Tea Party ticket. It won't happen.

    seeya at the polls, progressives
    It's getting difficult to look at any dems background and not find a few key words

    Comminism, socialism, Kenya, Chicago, Community leader, unions, Islam, Global

    The key words I look for in a candidate are
    America exceptionalism, Freedom, Jobs, Liberty, smaller government, the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

    Those are words you don't hear from Dems these days unless they are taking a dump on them while they are talking.

    So, to fool you, I only have to use key words, and not worry about presenting anything logical? Is that your position?

    She's never been afraid to take on her own party. The People are doing the same now. We are tired of voting simply because somene has an R behind there name.

    Personally, I am never "thrilled" when any party elevates a piss poor candidate.
