    I wouldn't be surprised if Rush told his listeners to do this – he has done this sort of thing before. Not sure if enough people listened, but he is known for these dirty tricks.

    Jeb Bush is a progressive, he's a RINO. We're not interested in him, Chris Christie or any other RINO... Ted Cruz for president!!

      Electing Ted Cruz for President is like electing Fidel Castro.

    Eric Cantor caused Eric Cantor's defeat.

    I don't get why everyone is so surprised. He's a arrogant ass that went to Washington and forgot the folks that sent him there. His approval rating was in the toilet prior to the election, so why the shock when those people sent him packing.

  4. The GOP Solution

    The GOP Prayer/Mantra/Solution: Dear God...With your loving kindness, help us to turn all the Old, Sick, Poor, Non-white, Non-christian, Female, and Gay people into slaves. Then, with your guidance and compassion, we will whip them until they are Young, Healthy, Rich, White, Christian, Male, and Straight. Or until they are dead. God...Grant us the knowledge to then turn them into Soylent Green to feed the military during the next "unfunded/off-the-books" war. God...Give us the strength during our speeches to repeatedly yell........TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!..........and........GET RID OF SS AND MEDICARE!!!
    In your name we prey (purposely misspelled, or is it?)........Amen

    The rw propaganda machine like Levin, Limbaugh, Ingraham, beck, seem to me to always come off as far right of mainstream usa, and seem to always be hateful of those who don't agree, or those who are poor, or less fortunate, or the worker, as they seem to cater to the 1% at the top.

    And on the minimum wage... that question should be in your wheel house as an economist. I'm a computer programmer... so while I might need to research to come up with an answer about policy issues involving the minimum wage, national defense or immigration... I can give you an answer immediately about my views on net neutrality or SOPA. Those are in my area of expertise.

    As an economist who enters politics... you better have your views in order on economic issues. If you're a doctor you better have an opinion on Obamacare, Medicaid and Medicare. As a vet you need to have your views on the VA and military ready to go. You're allowed slack... but not in your specialty.

    Jeb Bush and other immigration accepting GOP candidates aren't a threat for the democratic party in regards to Latino voters.

    Why not? Well for that you have to look at history... particularly the civil rights movement. The GOP OWNED that issue for a long time, where the democrat party was the party of racism. It changed when the democrat leadership changed their viewpoint and the majority of anti-civil rights democrats left the party (and later became republicans). This is where the democrats lost the "solid south" but gained california and several other states. It's also when the GOP "got religion" and hopped in bed with the evangelicals.

    The key point there is that the democrats didn't move toward the GOP on civil rights. The JUMPED OVER them. They didn't become "somewhat more accepting"... they became the CHAMPIONS of civil rights.

    The GOP people like Jeb Bush aren't going that direction on immigration. They're moving somewhat more toward the middle but that isn't enough to politically own the issue and take control of that voting block. They'd have to champion the issue to do that... to be in favor of more drastic immigration reform then the democrats are.

    Being "less biased" (which is how hispanics would view a slight movement in the GOP toward the middle on immigration) doesn't help you with a voting group if the other side is viewed as having less bias then you. YOu have to be "less biased then the democrats"... not just "less biased then you were before".

    It's really rather simple. When you live by ,innuendo, lies and propaganda, you can die by innuendo, lies and propaganda.
