So, Alaskans would elect somebody for Senator who walked out on the governor's job because she wanted to sell a book? I guess it's true what they say about drinking in Alaska. ???

Promise? As what?

He couldn't remember the three government agencies he'd eliminate if he were President... in the Presidential debate. "Man... what's that third one...? Uh... Oops."

He's a ****ing MORON. Perfect candidate for the GOP.

Rick Perry couldn't get out of the primary if he were running against a black Muslim socialist.

Hell, he didn't even come close when he was running against a Mormon and a nutjob Catholic.

i don't think she will run but I hope she does. Any dem that goes down in the Senate is a good thing. Alaska has a problem finding a well known repub that wants to run so Palin would fix that. She is probably smart enough to fight for what people in Alaska want from DC. I agree though as one step from the president it was a head scratcher move by McCain.

Palin is a complete disgrace. I actually think parading a moron like Palin around hurts the GOP more than it helps them - she is a media whore and the media love to lampoon a politician - she makes the entire GOP look far more foolish to the nation helping to further drive away independents from considering to vote GOP

That's not true. The GOP candidates I like, I think would probably stand a great chance of winning a general election. Unfortunately they will never make it out of the primaries. However, with the way things are trending, the GOP candidates that do make it out of the primaries will never stand a chance of winning a general election.

So maybe the better statement would be that: "Conservatives," such as yourself, only like GOP candidates that they are too deluded to realize can't win.

Picking Christie would be like dropping a bomb right where all the fault-lines of the Party meet. The GOP would explode into factions. They're going to have a difficult time of it. The Tea Party is still rabid. They see Christie as an apostate. A heretic. They're probably going to insist on Paul, or some other equally polarizing figure. The fringe elements in the Party are going to do the same thing they did in the last election, insist on somebody like Ryan on the ticket who weakened Romney's chances considerably. They just don't get it. America is tired of fundamentalist whackos. We have real problems. We need real solutions, not crazy people shouting dogma about their dead religions and simply throwing wrenches in the machinery of government when they don't get their way.

Anyway, the Right Wing revolution has destroyed America. Whether, or when, the American people wake up to that is another thing. Maybe they just continue to buy into the bull****. Maybe they don't. The best life Americans ever had was under progressive politics. Maybe Americans will start to wake up to that fact. Of course, now that we're a corporatocracy, perhaps we should just check with Goldman Sachs and see who they want for president? That's who is most likely to win. The election process is probably just a farce anyway. Goldman Sachs, GE, Exxon, et al choose two candidates, and then they run against each other. Take your pick. ;D

No, it's about the GOP who only support candidates that can't win.

What's to love when this country needs a strong opposition and the GOP can only offer up religious loons and empty suits.

You should be embarrassed for the party you unconditionally support. Just as the Democrats should have been embarrassed by their alternative to Bush, Kerry.

Both parties need to get back to the drawing board and back to work. DC is a dysfunctional clownfest.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is ripping libertarians — including Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — for challenging government surveillance programs and failing to understand the dangers of terrorism.

“This strain of libertarianism that’s going through parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought,” the New Jersey GOP governor said on Thursday at a Republican governors forum in Aspen, Colo. “You can name any number of people and (Paul is) one of them.”

SoCals preferred choices

1. Huntsman- Best all around candidate by far. It's not even close.
2. Jeb Bush- accomplished governor. Thoughtful, reasonable moderate for the most part...although he flubbed the immigration thing recently. Still, a very good choice....feel bad for him that he is cursed by his name.
3. Mitch Daniels- another very good choice and would be good on the deficit. Didn't run last time due to peccadillos but I think he is a great choice if they can message their way around that issue.
4. Paul Ryan- I'm a huge fan of transforming Medicare into just premium support/voucher...would save a ton of cash. He's great on spending and he has taken a reasonable position to promote immigration reform when it burned Rubio. Downside is he isn't as good on taxes (too supply side for my liking) and lacks gravitas on foreign affairs. I would still vote for him purely for the entitlement reform issues even though I have reason to pause on other grounds.

Christie rubs me the wrong way...much in the same way Romney did. I'm not ruling him out...but I prefer others. I could never vote for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul. And Rubio is an empty suit.

For years the Republican Party has fractured over foreign policy, but libertarians and neoconservatives, while vehemently disagreeing on substance, tried to project an air of party cohesion. Those days are over. “We ignored them and then tried to placate them,” said one hawkish Senate Republican foreign policy aide about the libertarians. “If we don’t move now [to counterattack], it may be too late in 2016.” … The long-delayed GOP foreign policy civil war is finally here. http://swampland.time.com/2013/07/27/gop-goes-public-with-long-brewing-foreign-policy-civil-war/#ixzz2aRpfYYFu

It is going to be fascinating watching Christie run in the GOP Primary. Will he cave on issues like McCain and Romney did? If he doesn't cave and stands his ground it will be amazing watching him get booed and lambasted at these debates. I am really looking fwd to seeing him trying to manuever all the Txtebow Republicans out there. Who want Intelligent design taught in school, Planned Parent Hoods shut down, and climate change deniers all trying to enforce their will on him.

All of which he is on the logical side.... as of now.... but when will he change?
