Fairfax County Republicans Raising Money off of Disastrous Graham Cassidy Bill

The Fairfax County Republicans are so "all in" on the disastrous Graham Cassidy bill that they are raising money off if it (see their...

AP Poll Spells Great News for White House

The latest AP-GfK 2012 election poll has very good news for President Obama and bad, bad news for Willard the "Mitt" and the other remaining clowns in the GOP primary field. The national poll of 1,000 adults conducted over the past week shows President Obama decisively leading Romney 51% to 43%. Against Santorum, the latest in the GOP desperate search for the "other-than-Mitt" candidate, the president is leading 52% to 43%.

Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich aren't doing any better. Paul, the darling of the Ayn Rand brainwashed set, is losing in the poll 53% to 44%, while Gingrich trails the president by 10 points. Gingrich has huge unfavorable numbers, 58%. Romney's unfavorable rating is 43%, Santorum 42%. Ron Paul is the least unlikeable of the four, but even he draws a 40% unfavorable rating, and a majority of those polled said they didn't like the entire field of candidates.

As the economy continues to improve and the Republicans dig themselves ever deeper into a right-wing hole, the re-election of President Obama looks brighter and brighter, as does the prospect that Virginia will have a new Democratic senator, not a GOP retread we happily said goodbye to six years ago..

It's going to be very difficult to any of the four left in the GOP field to move to the center after their primary blood bath, trying to prove who is most extreme. They are hemorrhaging support from independents and will continue to do so the longer they have to throw red meat to their far-right base. That's what happens when you succumb to "Tea Party poisoning."

Video: George Allen is Rick Santorum, Just More Dishonest


Why is it so hard for George Allen to admit what's glaringly obvious, that during his 6 years in the Senate, he voted for a massive new entitlement, two wars, and big tax cuts for rich people and corporations, none of which were paid for, thus quickly turning the Clinton surpluses into massive deficits? Can George Allen not even do what Rick Santorum did, admit he made a big mistake? Apparently not. Thus, the title of this blog post: George Allen is Rick Santorum, just more dishonest.

Iowa GOP Caucus: Everybody Loses

The Final 2012 Iowa Caucus Results are AnnouncedIs it possible to have a caucus that no one wins? The results from Iowa sure look like it:

  • Mitt Romney has been campaigning for president for six years. He's spent millions of dollars of his own campaign money and has been backed by tens of millions in spending by shadowy outside groups (thanks, Supreme Court's awful, activist Citizens United ruling). Romney only managed 24.6% - 0.6% less than in 2008.
  • Extremist social conservatives certainly didn't support Perry (10% & clumsily indicated he'd drop out), Bachmann (5% & possibly dropping out this morning) or Cain (1% & already out). But even with supporters of controlling theocratic government consolidated behind him, Rick Santorum couldn't win.
  • Despite an alleged ability to draw independent & liberal crossover votes and what his supporters claimed was an infusion of people traveling to Iowa, Ron Paul still finished third
It's hard to see a path to victory for anyone but Mitt Romney - phony, lying, corporations-are-people Mitt Romney. The real question at this point: Will Republicans set aside their dislike of Romney & unite in their hatred of President Obama behind him anyway? Be so dispirited by Romney that down-ballot Congressional races swing to Democrats? Turn to a third party candidate like Paul? What do you think?

Rick Santorum: “Palin is like Tinkerbell”

Simile trumps metaphor as the former Pennsylvania Senator immediately regretted the out of context possibilities and reached to minimize the potential by adding, "...she sprinkles fairy dust on candidates and they win!" Santorum was guest hosting on Bill Bennett's "Morning in America" radio program Friday morning.

Sharron Angle and Nikki Haley provide his proof. Santorum's own favored candidate in South Carolina, U. S. Representative Gresham Barrett, fell far behind after an early primary lead but managed to force a run-off with the beleaguered favorite of the tea party set. Santorum gave deference to the Palin "magic" and predicted she will be a force in a GOP resurgence this year and through 2012.
