    Schweitzer is a surprisingly progressive govenor, given the fact he represented a state like Montana. And cuomo has already shown his progressive streak by supporting gay marriage.

    Besides cuomo has enough money to make a impact in the primary. I like Hilliary but I personally believe it is time to let the new generation of democrats lead the party. I think Hilliary deserves a well earned retirement.

    And let me remind you what the vote was, back in 2001: the Senate passed the Patriot Act by 98-1. The day before, the House voted 357-66. This is hardly a partisan Republican sin.

    Paul is new. I like some of what he does, not everything. And he is certainly unpolished. But I'm prepared to be patient, without getting my hopes too high.

    At the risk of angering purists, I would say that for the first time in living memory, we have a visible libertarian-ish minority in both chambers. In the Senate, we have Paul, Mike Lee and Jeff Flake. Maybe Ted Cruz could be added, I'm not sure yet.

    This is not a bad development - not from the "progressive" POV either, I would guess.
    I never said the Patriot Act was not passed on a bipartisan basis. I said if you did not complain about it then, complaining about it now makes you look silly, no matter who you are. While Ron Paul may have complained, the republican masses did not.

    I was ignoring you by replying to someone besides you. This is the first time I ever addressed you. I'll be happy to go back to what I WAS doing, i.e., ignoring you.

    Of course. But what makes Rand Paul closer to the "republican masses" than to ....Ron Paul?!

    Well at the time the Patriot Act was passed, certainly Rand Paul would have had a bigger bully pulpit than the average Joe the Plumber. Do you have any evidence that Rand Paul ever spoke out against the Patriot Act when it was first being enacted?

    Speculation is that this is about Christie's handling of Hurricane Sandy.
    No, I think it has more to do with his signing on to Obamacare, and expanding Medicaid in New Jersey. But here's the deal. By doing this, he is saving the state money. Yes, he can gripe about the federalization of medicine in New Jersey, but in the end, he did what was best for his citizens, given the choices that he had available.

    For such staunch individualists, the Republican party really doesn't like it when someone goes against the establishment...

    Is he the only RINO that got excluded?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Chris Christie ‘Not Being Invited’ to CPAC

    I started a thread on this topi some time back - as Democrats on the forum are declaring Christie to be the most effective, honest and legitimate politician in the USA. So I poised the question of should Democrats nominate Christie as their candidate for president in 2016?

    INSTANTLY, Democrats on the forum declared that an absurd question.

    Never let the enemy make your battle plan. Democrats ONLY like Christie because of his anti-Republican and pro-Obama statements. But not one of them would vote for him.

    I would not vote for him, but not for that reason. I think he is a bully and rude to the public. Not something people should admire in their leaders.

    In addition, why shouldn't democrats nominate who they want and not who you want?
