    That's is such utter crap. You don't like Nancy Pelosi's politics fine but she didn't force anything: she led. The problem with centrists is that all they do is sit and criticize everybody but they have no leadership to offer but to stick their heads up their asses and blow.

    As for TEA partiers , yes it is silly to revere and want our politicians to get back to following the Constitution isn't it......?
    Don't agree with your assessment of Dole. But as for the Tea Party, it would help if they actually knew and understood the consititution. Do you need those links again concerning their misunderstandings?

    but let's not skip the point. We need less extremes and more reasonable consensus builders who can work together to actually accomplish things. We need less evil socialist liberal this and less granny killing republican that rethoric and more lets actually tackle problems. Less seeing enemies and more seeing one country with a few different points of view who can disagree but compromise.

    I know that's radical stuff, but I think it would be better for the country.


    Well, I originally asked the question of you to get a good chuckle out of it. But I'll tell ya seriously, when we want the liberal socialists, children to pick our candidate for us we'll give a call ok?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Trump needs to run as a Dem against Obama. He might stand a chance then. As soon as conservatives learn more about him he'll be dropped like a hot potato.

    Meet Donald Trump: Democrat Donor, Abortionist, Single Payer Supporter, and Taxer « Poll Insider
    Taxation: Forget raising taxes, Trump wanted to tax, at 14.25% the net wealth of “the evil rich.” Money that was already taxed. Of course, he played the “I’m raising taxes on myself” card to prove his selflessness. (Ironic given his inability to settle his own debts…) His 1999 plan:
    Raise $5.7 trillion to erase the nation’s debt and save $200 billion in annual interest payments
    Use the savings to save Social Security and slash taxes for the middle class
    Increase his personal tax bill by at least $725 million.
    Healthcare,: “I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on health. It is an unacceptable but accurate fact that the number of uninsured Americans has risen to 42 million. Working out detailed plans will take time. But the goal should be clear: Our people are our greatest asset. We must take care of our own. We must have universal healthcare. Donald Trump
    Then: “I support a woman’s right to choose, but I am uncomfortable with the procedures. When Tim Russert asked me on Meet the Press if I would ban partial-birth abortion, my pro-choice instincts led me to say no. After the show, I consulted two doctors I respect and, upon learning more about this procedure, I have concluded that I would support a ban.” From his 2000 book.
    That's just the beginning. Check this out and tell me he will get the tea party vote.

    Update 3: Now that Donald Trump is claiming that the Tea Party is the be all end all, isn’t it quite peculiar his support AGAINST nearly every tea party candidate in the 2010 cycle? He opposed Sharron Angle in favor of Harry Reid (and gave Reid almost $5k to defeat her). He supported uber-Rino Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio. He supported Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey. He donated the max to Kirsten Gillibrand over Joe DioGuardi. He donated to far left congressman Anthony Weiner and Carolyn Maloney. His one “big” uhhh “conservative” donation was $50k to Karl Rove’s American Crossroads PAC. Needless to say, Karl Rove is about as anti-Tea party establishment RINO as they come. This is a man who has NEVER done anything for either the Tea Party or the Republican Party or for Conservatism, and is now running around waving all three banners as though he is the Braveheart of the Right.

    Palin is still my top choice.
    Either of the Paul's would be second.
    Then the Donald.

    1t would be 1964 all over again.

    Nah, Pelosi would never "force" anything.

    Re: GOP insiders embrace Trump's Presidential bid

    What's GHWB doing these days?

    Is he too old already? Couldn't we squeeze for more years out of him?

    I'd like to see someone like that run. Someone with a wide variety of relevant experience.
    George H. W. Bush - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'd vote for him again.
    I may be wrong.

    You know, I did like the first Bush. Good man. He really was.

    Well you can forget it, patriotism has been used for 200 years.

    Remind you of any other politician?
