    I'm not saying it hasn't been used. I'm saying that it rings fake to me lately since it is primarily used for a political strategy and not because of a genuine love for this country.

    Out with Sarah. In with The Donald.....

    GOP celebrities like Sarah Palin aren't getting much buzz. Mainstream candidates like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty aren't getting much traction. It's people once considered highly unlikely to compete seriously for the party's nomination who are creating big stirs in early voting states, a reflection of an unformed and uncertain GOP presidential field.

    GOP activists in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina appear deeply intrigued by, and open to, a run by Donald Trump.....


    Here you go Republicans....here is your man. Run Donald Run.....With his extremist birther views and bad tupee....I think he is the perfect GOP candidate.

    The mainstream media is feeding us another distraction, another non-starter, another loser. Republicans need to wise up.

    I don't. I'm sorry j, but that guy just was worthy of missing. Hell, even if all your criticism of Obama had merit, he still wouldn't become desirable. Sorry.

    No, he could not become desirable. He is nothing that I have called for. and no matter who goes bezerk, that doesn't change.

    Nancy Pelosi is not the most quotable person but this is one of her very best. When politics was raging after the election of Scott Brown in January, 2010, Speaker Pelosi stood her ground and demonstrated what leadership looks like.

    “You have to admire the grit and persistence of Pelosi, whose persuasive powers were at their height in the days leading up to the vote. Buffeted by doubts even from within the White House, she held her seat, and managed to cajole both the pro-life conservative Bart Stupak and the single-payer liberal Dennis Kucinich into supporting the bill. That’s some savvy legislating.”

    — RENÉE LOTH, op-ed, “The power of Pelosi,” Boston Globe, March 26, 2010

    Contrast that with the pathetic leadership of Donald Trump demagoguing the Birther issue. Who would you rather have in power, a leader who gathers the necessary support for programs long sought by Democratic and Republican administrations, in some case dating back to more than a century, or, a guy who actually went bankrupt running a casino and all he really wants to do is have his prime-time reality show renewed for one more season so he can continue to collect a paycheck and is willing to use any means necessary to get that done?
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001
