My Condolences (RIP) Republican Party

My my my.

What a big change of events in recent times

John McCain had everything in his favor, with polls swinging in his favor.

It actually looked as if John was going to give a knockout blow to the Democrat party. But look what has suddenly happened.

First of all John McCain attacked a Barack Obama, on his lack of experience and not understanding world politics as a relative unknown.

This lethal combination of attacks was enough to bring down Obama and give John McCain. A real shot at the White House despite eight years of failed Republican policies which have ruined our economy and brought down our world standing.

We suffered through an inarticulate buffoon.

Through recent turn of events Obama visits Iraq and tells the leaders of the country that we should be able to be out of it within 16 months well, John McCain says his opponent has actually no experience in politics and doesn’t understand that is not possible.

To make matters worse, the younger Democrat, says he will talk to world leaders and nations such as Iran, for which McCain makes fun of him.

Low and behold. Bush says we will be out in 16 months and begins talks with Iran.

If Obama can do this as an candidate ,imagine what he might accomplish in office.

To make matters worse McCain’s last big method of attack on all this in experience is laid to rest. When good old McCain chooses someone nobody has even heard of. Even in the Republican Party.
They say as we age, judgment is one of the first things to go and I think McCain has proven this.

Rest In Peace …Republican Party.

You have a very black sense of humour! And I thought that Ted Kennedy calling him ‘Osama’ was dark!

My congratulations to the Republican Party for John McCains choice.

With excerpts from one of 50 positives on the web tonight:

McCain Should Pick Sarah Palin for VP

By Jack Kelly](
Who? When?
Republicans including, I imagine, Sen. McCain himself are asking these questions about his selection of a vice presidential candidate.
Ideally, a presidential candidate wants a running mate who will help him or her win the election, and (maybe) to govern afterwards. But most will settle for a veep who isn’t a drag on the ticket, as Dan Quayle was for the first President Bush.
Traditionally, a presidential nominee has chosen a running mate to balance the ticket geographically, or to appease a faction of the party. The most successful example of this was when John F. Kennedy picked Lyndon Johnson, though neither liked the other, and LBJ joined the ticket only because he thought Kennedy would lose.
Bill Clinton broke with this tradition when he chose another young (purported) moderate from a neighboring southern state. By picking Al Gore, he hoped to reinforce his campaign theme of generational change.
Which way will Sen. McCain go? The potential running mates most often discussed have downsides nearly as great as their upsides. Gov. Tim Pawlenty helps only in Minnesota, and not enough, according to current polls, to make a difference there. Sen. McCain’s friend Sen. Joe Lieberman would bring in some moderate Democrats, but could further antagonize conservatives already suspicious of Sen. McCain. Gov. Romney would have little appeal to working class whites unhappy with Sen. Obama, and evangelicals fret about that Mormon thing. A Huckabee nomination would irritate economic and foreign policy conservatives as much as it would please evangelicals.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is a rising star. But he’s only 36, and he’s been governor for less than a year.

There is one potential running mate who has virtually no down side. Those conservatives who’ve heard of her were delighted to learn that McCain advance man Arthur Culvahouse was in Alaska recently, because they surmised he could only be there to discuss the vice presidential nomination with Gov. Sarah Palin.
At 44, Sarah Louise Heath Palin is both the youngest and the first female governor in Alaska’s relatively brief history as a state. She’s also the most popular governor in America, with an approval rating that has bounced around 90 percent.
This is due partly to her personal qualities. When she was leading her underdog Wasilla high school basketball team to the state championship in 1982, her teammates called her “Sarah Barracuda” because of her fierce competitiveness.
Two years later, when she won the “Miss Wasilla” beauty pageant, she was also voted “Miss Congeniality” by the other contestants.
Sarah Barracuda. Miss Congeniality. Fire and nice. A happily married mother of five who is still drop dead gorgeous. And smart to boot.
But it’s mostly because she’s been a crackerjack governor, a strong fiscal conservative and a ferocious fighter of corruption, especially in her own party.
Ms. Palin touches other conservative bases, some of which Sen. McCain has been accused of rounding. Track, her eldest son, enlisted in the Army last Sept. 11. She’s a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association who hunts, fishes and runs marathons. A regular churchgoer, she’s staunchly pro-life.
Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal said Sen. McCain should run against a corrupt, do-nothing Congress, a la Harry Truman. If he should choose to do so, Gov. Palin would make an excellent partner “The landscape is littered with the bodies of those who have crossed Sarah,” pollster Dave Dittman told the Weekly Standard’s Fred Barnes.
Sen. Barack Obama’s support has plunged recently among white women. Many Hillary Clinton supporters accuse him – I think unfairly – of being sexist. Having Sarah Palin on the ticket could help Sen. McCain appeal to these disgruntled Democrats.
Running mates usually aren’t named until the convention. But if Sen. McCain should name Gov. Palin earlier, it would give America more time to get to know this extraordinary woman. And because she’s at least a dozen feature stories waiting to be written, she could help him dominate the news between now and the conventions.
Another reason for selecting Sarah Palin early would be to force Barack Obama to make a mistake. He’d have to rule out choosing someone like Virginia Sen. Jim Webb as his running mate, for fear of exacerbating charges of sexism. And if he chose a woman other than Hillary, the impression Democrats are wimpy would be intensified

You shouldn’t have encouraged him to have another one Randy. He’s now talking like he’s had waaaaay too many.

Look who is talking here.

Did you move in Baraboo to see the circus museum or to join it.
After all you are a clown.

Drain one nearby lake and you cheese heads all freak.
I am suprised you are not a Democrat, since most of your population moves to mosquito country for the free handouts.:|.)

What was all this noise I heard about the Democrats being the party of compassion? I guess that compassion only applies to liberals and social minorities dependent upon a leftist government’s teet. The true colors of a liberal always surface when confronted with a harsh political reality. Libertarian my ***!

I think that, given a four to eight year rest, the Republican party will return to the people who supported it. Having travelled so far to the “middle” that they now embrace parts of the left…knowing that McCain would have Liebermann as a running mate if his party would allow him to…has alienated them from their base.

After a sound defeat in 2008, I predict a resurgence in both Houses in 2010…and a comeback that would make Newt Gingrich proud.

This Newt Gingrich ???

In 1997 a strong majority of Americans believed Gingrich should have been replaced as Speaker of the House, and he held an all-time low job approval rating of 28%.

In 1992, his Contract with America led a Republoican takeover of both Houses of Congress for the first time in decades. By 1997, he had been outpoliticked by Clinton enough times to fall into disfavor…but he still remains a “favorite son” of the Republican conservatives.

Nick,I am not a Democrat,but am a realist.
Rather than waste my vote on the Libertarian candidate (whom is not Ron Paul) ,I had to make a decision at some point.

I was actually leaning towards McCain, till the convention.
Obamas speech had enough substance to lay his cards on the table.

He choose Biden over Clinton to add experiance where he is weak, while the Republicans continue the same old tired methods.

Picking a total nobody after only one meeting ,as JM did shows judgement based only on the polls.

Now that I have picked a side ,you can look forward to this forum not being as one sided towards the past .

With JB on your side as well, I look forward to the fun and spirited debates that lie ahead.:smiley:

You actually do believe he writes his own speeches!

What substance?

You mean when he trotted out almost every failed idea of the Democratic left from the past 60 years in hopes that the “new generation” would be too stupid to read history?

Just as much as I beleive McCain picked a stranger on his own, to spend the next 2 1/2 month’s with.

Oh well that time will go fast, then dis appear,thank goodness.

Now Bob! Go back to about all of your posts over the last month or two and ask yourself does anyone believe you were leaning toward McCain! While you are there ask yourself does anyone believe you are or were a libertarian. Just trying to help you out on this one!

If you believe there were weapons of mass destruction, and have faith in the trickle down theory , I should have no problem covincing you of anything.

He used them on his own people Bob! Did you miss that part? I love it, maybe if Dopey becomes president he will trust Iran don’t have any or attempting to make them. Geez! What an old tired argument Bob. You need to remember Bush is not running and if you say McCain is the same especially when it comes to WMD then you can’t possibly vote for the Dem ticket because Biden agreed. I am not trying to convince you to vote McCain, because your minds been made up for a long time. I am just looking for an argument with some substance. What has Dopey been in charge of that makes him qualified to command the best military in the world, run a country, etc. He being a manager of the local 7-11 or Sears doesn’t cut it for me. If you were as independent as you say you would have said I liked the delivery of Obamas speech that someone wrote for him and I am now leaning Socialist but I want to be sure so I will reserve my vote until I hear McCain at his convention. Do you see where I am coming from Bob! I am not trying to convince you I am just amazed at some of the stuff you write! You are what you have been for a long time and I am okay with that. So lets argue it!



Hey Robert;

We’re not entirely ready for full blown socialism quite yet. I’ll bet you $1 McCain wins the election. There’s not enough EU Liberals in New York, Chicago and California to over ride the rest of the country… At least not this election.

Joe B. will kill himself or someone if the socialist is not elected. He is already close to losing it!:wink: Now he’s dragging Robert down with him! I can tell by the anger as of late in our friend from Chicago Bob!:frowning:
