    People are going to be sorry if they nominate that motherfucker, I promise you that. One thing I can definitely promise you, and you can take this to the god damn bank. I will spend zero time and effort defending him, apologizing for him, explaining his past and his multiple choice positions through the years. Obama is starting to look better and better. Mainly because I think he’ll fuck things up so badly there’s no way another Democrat can follow him in 2016, and maybe-just maybe-the conservative movement will be able to exercise enough discipline to get behind one good solid conservative candidate without demonizing all the others. Then we can tell the establishment goons to go fuck themselves. Maybe we can actually take over the GOP by that point. Then again, some people still believe in Santa Clause, so there you go.

    I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford another four years of this horseshit.

    You need to take a chill pill and lay off the ad  hominem crap, because it’s getting very old.

    Yes, this is a warning.

    Well you’d better hunker down, because its definitely coming, and it doesn’t really matter a whole hell of a lot who wins. We’re way past the point where we can “compromise” our way out of what’s coming down the pike. You just can’t outrun that ring and put it back in the bell.

    I agree with Pagan here. This country needs to take a logger’s chainsaw to this spending and bring down the 15 trillion dollar deficit.

    I don’t disagree with that. What I don’t agree with is that we should let Obama win a second term because none of our candidates are perfect.

    The only reason I have to vote for Romney is SCOTUS.

    Saying Romney isn’t perfect is like saying Rosie O’Donnell isn’t skinny.
