    Train carrying GOP Congress members hits garbage truck

    Train carrying GOP Congress members hits garbage truck It is sad about the injuries of those who were not congressmen, but I could not repress a twinge of Schadenfreude that the congress critters should experience a tiny bit of the injury they have condemned ordinary Americans to endure due...

    GOP poisons ObamaCare, then claims it's sick

    The USA Today editorial makes several good points but it totally forgets that law was flawed to begin with. I do agree that, no matter how screwed up it is, a responsible action of our elected reps, specifically our Republican ones, is to make it work. Certainly not waste tax payer dollars in...

    So what's next for the GOP?

    The party's base seems to be too small. It needs to do a better job at getting the Hispanic vote in particular (those numbers have worsened in both elections since Bush in 2004). What do you think it should do or what do you predict will happen? I think the younger guys are now going to step up...

    Arizona GOP primary debate

    Anyone watching tonight? Santorum is probably going to get a lot more attention with his rise and Romney will try to fight to get himself back atop.

    Right here, right now, state who you believe will win the Republican nomination and face off against President Obama? If you are feeling especially cavalier, explain why. Despite losing the last three primaries, and possibly losing Maine today, I am going with Mitt Romney. Despite being...

    Why does the GOP allow the lib media to run the debates?

    Yeah, I know there was one by Fox, but why allow the lib media talking heads, every single one of them an obama butt kisser, to run the show? The questions are often trivial and utterly ignore giant issues like obama's retreats out of afghanistan and iraq, with absolutely no success to show for...

    GOP candidates want to be in govt to keep govt out of the way ...

    Isn't this an irony? They are looking to get into govt to keep govt out of the way. If you are elected for at least one term, it guarantees health care for life for yourself. That is what they are looking for and then make sure health care is not available to all.

    The "fence" is a horrible idea

    During the last GOP debate, a few of the candidates stressed that they wanted to see a fence on the US-Mexico border to deter illegal immigration. The idea does not really make sense logistically or financially. It most likely wouldn't work either. It is a very costly investment and ironically...
