The last GOP debate in less than 60 seconds

Eyewitness reports say Newt won, Satanorum lost, Mitt was present and Paul was Paul.

I really don’t care anymore. The next four years are going to be very unpleasant no matter who wins.

Some Republicans are figuring out that the game has been rigged. Ace of Spades:

I believe the party wants to lose.

I believe the party has decided the problems facing us are so big that they cannot be overcome.

I believe the party has decided, maybe subconsciously, maybe consciously, that we are not up to the task, and the best thing to do is just duck out and Blame the Other Guys. Let them Own Their Problems.

If that’s the plan, let me know. We don’t have to contend very hard at all if our goal is to lose.

Easiest thing in the world, losing. Even easier when you’ve gotten practice at it.

I believe the party does not think it is capable of working positive good in policy. If so, I take it as knowing itself best, and perhaps it’s time for a new party.

Why should the Republican establishment want to win? They get everything they could dream of and the Democrats take the blame.

    I had this question for my sister this morning – Are the republicans voting for Santorum so deluded that they really think Rick can beat Obama or are they protest voting to destroy the republican establishment (not just voting against Mitt Romney). I can respect the later but if it’s the former they need a mental health intervention.

    • votermom says:

      I think some of the non-religious Santorum voters are protest-voting – going with the strongest Anti-Mitt of the moment.
      Some of the real supporters think that Santorum can win; that Santorum has been wrongfully depicted in the media and if GE voters get to know him they will vote for him.
      And some think that none of the 4 candidates can win against BO anyway so they are voting their heart.

      sorry OT.
      Did anyone else watch the PBS American Experience “Clinton” ?
      It was a 2 part series that was on this week?
      I haven’t heard or seen comments anywhere.

      I did watch both parts and it was a pretty good chronology of William Jefferson Clinton, from his ” hippie intellectual Rhodes policy power guy” through his final month in office.
      Interesting take on Hillary and his meeting that clinched the essence of their relationship. They absolutely see each other as equals.
      They make a great team.
      So, if you get a chance to find that…check it out.
      I TIVOed it. I’ll watch it a few more times.

    Obviously, Governor Palin was watching the debate with the rest of us tonight.

    Newt’s message on energy development was spot-on. Drill now and stop bowing to foreign regimes begging them to do it for us. Then we’ll all be “cheerful.”

    • Lulu says:

      They need to broaden the energy message beyond drilling. Obama wants higher energy prices period. He wanted an energy exchange in Chicago so his supporters could skim directly off the top and choose who go heat and air conditioning and diesel and who did not. All of his policies, crony stimulus, pipeline nixing, permit denying is about higher energy prices for every single person in the US because that is what he believes in. We are energy hogs. We are fat and lazy. We are supposed to pay up to his friends and suffer. Why? Because he says so.

      LOL. The Republican’s are such a joke this season. Why it’s almost as if they’ve planned it that way.

      I think what really scares TPTB is that one of the non Mitt’s could accidentally pull it off. I think they’re feeling more at ease about that now though.

  4. driguana says:

    So if the intention is to lose, and they do, and they will with the current cast of characters, who runs in 2016 that’s any better??? The problem with both (all) political parties today is that they cannot clearly articulate what they stand for. The best bet for the Republicans at this point would be to back Gingrich as he has the best chance to go up against Obama. He won’t beat him but the debates would be good. Still think the most “exciting” race would be Palin/Rubio.

  5. Three Wickets says:

    I just imagine the puppet masters for all these guys along with Obama’s people and the mainstream media scripting out this whole campaign season like one big professional wrestling league. Mention Hillary or Palin’s name, and they all spazz out in unision, so that must be off script. It’s funny to watch.

    • Lulu says:

      As everyone sits in their hot house this summer with the thermostat turned up as far as they dare, unable to go anywhere except where absolutely necessary, bored, sweating and pissed, listening to Obama try to blame speculators, Israelis, oil companies, anyone else he can come up with, his attack ads will be playing and the media will be (inject obscene verb of your choice) his opponent. I am not sure things are working out so well as the timing seems off as in the energy prices were probably supposed to jack up in 2013 sort of like the Supreme Court was expected to hear the health care case in 2013 too.

    • DandyTiger says:

      It is fun to watch them spaz out. This whole thing is so obviously scripted and planned. Obama is supposed to win. And he almost certainly will. Yawn. My popcorn may get cold if things don’t get more interesting.

      • myiq2xu says:

        If Romney wins it won’t change anything, at least not right away. Either way – no big legislation will pass due to gridlock. The status quo will stay the same. The economy will keep doddering along.

        Both sides will spend their time jockeying for position in 2014 and 2016.

        • Lulu says:

          The question is that better than someone actively running the whole shebang into the ground? My first thought says yes. But then we may have to bottom out first. And then again if we bottom out can we come out of it? It reminds me of a family dealing with an out of control alcoholic. Part of the family says “Out of here you are ruining all of us” and the others say ” He/she will get better, it’s not their fault, they haven’t hit bottom yet, etc”. When does a consensus solidify and say enough?

        • DandyTiger says:

          Yep. Fun aint it? I picked the wrong time to give up sniffing glue.

  6. DandyTiger says:

    My prediction of the day: the money, the influence, the media, and the party machines triumph in the end and Mitt wins Michigan. He was always going to win Arizona. Then he goes on to win most of super Tuesday. Done and done.

    And of course he’s the candidate most designed to lose to Obama. He can’t even complain about Obamacare for gods sake. He’s a dead man walking. The least, even among the current clowns, able to beat Obama. TBTB are feeling good.

    • votermom says:

      Hey Dandy, do you know if the Do Not Track Plus pug-in in the link Helen posted just above your comment good?

      • DandyTiger says:

        The EFF site mentioned with instructions to remove your web history is a great idea. Doesn’t mean Google will do it fully or stop tracking everything for “internal use”. But it’s a start. I did it.

        The do not track pligins like the one mentioned seem good. I also like Ghostery. They won’t stop Google from tracking as they break the rules and circumvent standards and user privacy settings. But it helps I think.

        • votermom says:

          I checked that google web history thing yesterday and it was already turned off (gave me the option of turning it on).
          I am starting to use ixquick now though I haven’t installed it in my browser yet.

    • Lulu says:

      Is that the best blog he can find? Hell, invite to post here. Aren’t there any crappy Russian Huffington Post-like blogs if he want to get all creative classy?

    • honora says:

      I must be hungry and need new glasses. At first I thought the link you provided was to ‘freebacon’ and it sounded great.

    • Three Wickets says:

      Interesting. Wonder if HuffPo will consider merging with the RT Channel. RT is to Putin like MSNBC is to Obama.

    Reason #1,987 why OWS breaks my heart. This is from a Nov 2011 Gateway Pundit post.

    When you read the history of the statue, then what it became a symbol of after 9-11, you may feel disgust more than heartbroken.

  8. myiq2xu says:

    I went the the ER last night. 3 hours later after being poked, prodded, IKG’ed, hooked to monitors, pincushioned in both arms and drained of blood (all while wearing a really cool Seymour Ass gown) they gave me a shot and an Rx for pills and some cream.

    What did you guys do for fun?

    New tweet from Sarah:

    • HELENK says:

      a court marshal is a proper venue for his trial. He has to be held accountable for his actions.
      It was classified information that he leaked.

  10. HELENK says:

    Obama at #UM: “I will not walk away from the possibility of clean energy,” he tells students.

    I guess all his friends haven’t gotten all their money yet

  11. swanspirit says:

    “cheerful” I have to tell this . When i was a really little kid , about 8 or so , my mom and the next door neighbor Mrs S. would shoot the breeze over the back fence and on really hot summer days , share a cold beer or two . One day when my mother was not in such a great mood but working outside cleaning window screens , I asked hesitantly if she wanted me to get her a beer . Mrs S said Why do you ask that ? I said because when she has a beer , she is more “cheerful ” They LAUGHED !!!
    Thanks for the memory 😉

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Good news for Palin fans….The Undefeated picked up by the Reelz channel….details…

    This is the same channel that saved The Kennedys.

  13. HELENK says:

    remember this??

    how many businesses is this going to happen to under the backtrack bunch?

    • DandyTiger says:

      Any that don’t pay the extortion fee.

      “It’s be a shame if something happened to your business, now wouldn’t it.”

    • votermom says:

      Good lord. As if forcing a kid to listen to Obozo wasn’t cruel enough, he has to hit in the face with a coffee mug for not paying attention?

      Paging CPS.

    • HELENK says:

      OH HELL
      what is the msm going to use to keep us amused and not paying attention to the problems in the country?

      I thought they be good for about 4 weeks closer to the election
