Cocktail Republicans Need to Go Found a New RINO Party with Romney at Head?

New York Times columnist David Brooks has a tendency to upset a lot of conservatives because he takes positions that are usually more moderated. And his reasoning in making a case for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney seems to be an instance of just that, pragmatism trumping ideology.

On Friday’s airing of “NewsHour” on PBS, Brooks explained that while the country is clamoring for a GOP presidential nominee like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, his nomination might not be the wisest thing for the country.

“Yes, I mean as Mark [Shields] says, [Christie] has this phenomenal, rare skill of talking about wonky issues in a normal way and that is just not something that comes along every day,” Brooks said. “And so he has that skill. But to follow Mark’s metaphor, I agree the Republican primary electorate wants the guy with the leather jacket. But I think the country wants the guy from the rotary club. I think they want the Mitt Romney guy, because we are in a very scary period.”

Brooks warned that if crisis strikes, an aggressive individual like Christie would be less effective than the more moderated Romney.

“I expect, before the election, there is going to be more bad news from Europe or somewhere else. And my presumption is, on elections, people always vote for the candidate who seems safer and more orderly,” Brooks continued. “Obama seemed more orderly than McCain after the financial meltdown. Bush seemed more orderly. Whether they are really going to want somebody like Chris Christie, who is rambunctious and big and not exactly orderly, I`m not convinced. I think the Republicans should be pretty happy with Romney.”

On the orderly class, Plato, "Statesman"
STRANGER: The difference between the two classes is often a trivial concern; but in a state, and when affecting really important matters, becomes of all disorders the most hateful.

YOUNG SOCRATES: To what do you refer?

STRANGER: To nothing short of the whole regulation of human life. For the orderly class are always ready to lead a peaceful life, quietly doing their own business; this is their manner of behaving with all men at home, and they are equally ready to find some way of keeping the peace with foreign States. And on account of this fondness of theirs for peace, which is often out of season where their influence prevails, they become by degrees unwarlike, and bring up their young men to be like themselves; they are at the mercy of their enemies; whence in a few years they and their children and the whole city often pass imperceptibly from the condition of freemen into that of slaves.

YOUNG SOCRATES: What a cruel fate!

STRANGER: And now think of what happens with the more courageous natures. Are they not always inciting their country to go to war, owing to their excessive love of the military life? they raise up enemies against themselves many and mighty, and either utterly ruin their native-land or enslave and subject it to its foes?

YOUNG SOCRATES: That, again, is true.

STRANGER: Must we not admit, then, that where these two classes exist, they always feel the greatest antipathy and antagonism towards one another?

YOUNG SOCRATES: We cannot deny it.

STRANGER: And returning to the enquiry with which we began, have we not found that considerable portions of virtue are at variance with one another, and give rise to a similar opposition in the characters who are endowed with them?

YOUNG SOCRATES: True.

STRANGER: Let us consider a further point.

YOUNG SOCRATES: What is it?

STRANGER: I want to know, whether any constructive art will make any, even the most trivial thing, out of bad and good materials indifferently, if this can be helped? does not all art rather reject the bad as far as possible, and accept the good and fit materials, and from these elements, whether like or unlike, gathering them all into one, work out some nature or idea?

YOUNG SOCRATES: To, be sure.

STRANGER: Then the true and natural art of statesmanship will never allow any State to be formed by a combination of good and bad men, if this can be avoided; but will begin by testing human natures in play, and after testing them, will entrust them to proper teachers who are the ministers of her purposes—she will herself give orders, and maintain authority; just as the art of weaving continually gives orders and maintains authority over the carders and all the others who prepare the material for the work, commanding the subsidiary arts to execute the works which she deems necessary for making the web.

YOUNG SOCRATES: Quite true.
Weaving the Republican peplos is never an easy task. It can be as difficult as Athena's defeat of Enceladus in the battle against the Gigantes.

Our "educators" no longer serve their function. THEY have become the carders that the stranger warn us must cooperate with the weavers in making the peplos web. They no longer do so for OUR party. The second speech is a harbinger of America's "present".

beamish said...

For me it's a simple matter of looking at how the most anti-Obomneycare candidates are doing in the polls, and where the most anti-Obomneycare candidates are directing their efforts.

Tim Pawlenty, who coined the term "Obomneycare," has dropped out of the running before a primary vote took place anywhere.

Michelle Bachmann and Herman Cain have doubled down on attacking Rick Perry.

Rick Perry has adopted the odd tactic of attacking himself, entering debates half-asleep.

Ron Paul is off message now that his al-Qaeda Facebook friends are dead.

Newt Gingrich is sitting back watching the amateurs destroy each other.

Rick Santorum is standing to everyone's right hoping the Tea Party figures out Donald Trump was never a conservative voice.

John Huntsman is standing to everyone's left hoping the Tea Party remembers he was there for them when Lu Xiaobo was running his mouth in China instead of locked up in a political prison.

Gary Johnson has bong hits for everyone.

Now there's a Tea Party call to get a pro-abortion, anti-gun Chris Christie type in the race.

It's all Mitt Romney's to win by default because his largest threats in the GOP debates are steadily eliminating each other.

Perhaps it would not be so if the Tea Party "movement" knew what a conservative was, much less how to attract their support.

beamish said...

...but they won't, because the Tea Party "movement" is the disgruntled KKK wing of the Democratic Party waiting for Hillary Clinton to return.

Joe Conservative said...

Thanks for all your concern about all the imaginary conservatives that are currently contemplating running, beamish. But then pretending that there ARE no conservatives in the field, merely plays to Romney's hand...

Qui bene from a "there are no conservatives" argument, beamish? The same candidate who argues about the un-electability of "conservative" candidates.

"Qui bene?" - Cicero

Joe Conservative said...

Two birds of a feather... O'Bromneycare supporters... and beamish!

beamish said...

Once you get past all the "I hate niggers and Mexicans" boilerplate, there just isn't much substance to the Tea Party "movement."

beamish said...

I am no supporter of Romney nor Obomneycare.

I just don't see how you get rid of either by rallying behind the Tea Party's Hillarycare socialists.

Joe Conservative said...

Because there are only going to be three alternatives, beamish... and the imaginary "conservative" you support is never going to jump into the race... and face it, you can't even NAME him.

beamish said...

But then pretending that there ARE no conservatives in the field, merely plays to Romney's hand...

I'm not trying to draft Chris Christie. It's Hillary Clinton's Tea Party "movement" that is trying to go 0 for 6 on backing a conservative after drafting Ron Paul, Donald Trump, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rick Perry to run and finding no support there from actual conservatives.

Here's a challenge. Why don't you Teabaggers take off your Che Guevara T-shirts, shower off the gay pride glitter from CPAC, and see if you can draft a candidate more conservative than John McCain.

::crickets::

Joe Conservative said...

Perfect isn't running in this election. There are only "lesser weevils".

Joe Conservative said...

...and I see little daylight between Obamacare and O'BRomneycare.

Joe Conservative said...

Poor Beamish... no one will "give him" a conservative to his liking to vote for. And he can't be bothered drafting his own candidate. What's a poor girl like beamish to do?

Joe Conservative said...

Bitch and moan... and then get strapped over a barrel and f'd like a little girl deserves, I suppose. ;)

beamish said...

How's that? I'm supporting Santorum until you Teabaggers force him out of the race and I have to write myself in.

Joe Conservative said...

Don't worry, beamish. When Romney wins the Republican nomination, we can all work with Sarah Palin to get Obama re-elected.... and then we'll both have the satisfaction of having stood on the purity of our principles.

beamish said...

Obama's re-election is a foregone conclusion at this point in the race. Especially with all the Tea Party catering to Obama's lost left-wing followers (i.e. John Huntsman's last stand against Romney this coming spring).

My satisfaction will be similar to the satisfaction I have now - watching the Tea Party eat itself.

Joe Conservative said...

You think that if there weren't any other Tea Party candidates in the race that Santorum would beat Romney? If it were a head-to-head race w/o ANY Tea Party support...

BWAH-HA-HA-HA... the cocktail party Republicans would ALL vote for Romney! Santorum has NO support OUTSIDE of the Tea Party!

Joe Conservative said...

Your satisfaction will be voting for the winner in the current RNC slugfest, which you are trying to GUARANTEE will be Romney!


BWAH-HA-HA-HA. Hara-Kiri has a new name. It's Beamish!

Joe Conservative said...

You're all sour-grapes laced with cynicism. You'll GET the candidate you deserve.

Joe Conservative said...

Your scratching like a cat in a litterbox trying to re-bury Enceladus. Celebrate his re-birth Beamish. Don't whine like a little girl.

beamish said...

No, on the contrary, if / when Romney wins the GOP nomination, it will prove that the Tea Party narrative that John McCain lost to Obama because "he was a RINO / not conservative enough" is composed entirely of bullshit.

Shit, I'll make my challenge easier. Why don't you Teabaggers strip off your Che Guevara T-Shirts, wash off the CPAC Twilight vampire glitter, and draft a candidate more conservative than Romney?

beamish said...

If the Tea Party is allegedly so opposed to Romney, why all the effort against Rick Perry?

Joe Conservative said...

lol! Sorry, little girl, but your babysitter won't do your dirty dishes for you. You'll have to take some responsibility and do THOSE yourself.

beamish said...

If Chris Christie joins the race, can we look forward to Michelle Bachmann talking about obesity?

Joe Conservative said...

why all the effort against Rick Perry?

Qui bene?

Someone is going to win the GOP nomination. And so long as there's a Tea Party, it WON'T be Mitt Romney.

Joe Conservative said...

Sarah Palin is waiting to play White Knight. She's got five "stalking horses" in the race. When there's only one left, she'll jump in.

Joe Conservative said...

...and then you'll have your choice. Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, or Mitt Romney. And Mitt is stuck at 25% under ANY Tea Party Candidate scenario.

Joe Conservative said...

If your lucky, she'll let Rick Santorum play the token "cocktail party Republican" role as VP.

beamish said...

lol! Sorry, little girl, but your babysitter won't do your dirty dishes for you. You'll have to take some responsibility and do THOSE yourself.

LOL! I, like most Americans, realize the Tea Party "movement" is simply Hillary Clinton's KKK wing of the Democratic Party looking to poison the GOP primaries with her freakshow -

Michelle Bachmann - a welfare hoarding tax cheat married to a gay man

Rick Perry - aka the Governor of northern Mexico

Herman Cain - even has a 3 point plan to put his shoes on

Ron Paul - نیاز به پول بیشتری از ستاد

beamish said...

Ron Paul - [needs more money from headquarters, translated from Persian]

beamish said...

Sarah Palin is waiting to play White Knight. She's got five "stalking horses" in the race. When there's only one left, she'll jump in.

Interesting theory, along the lines of McCain's 2008 stalking horses (Guiliani, Thompson)

If it knocks Romney out of the race (it won't) it would have the same result against Obama, but worse...

...the term "conservative" will as poisonous as socialists have made the term "liberal."

beamish said...

I'm looking for this guy "Generic Republican" that keeps stomping Obama in the polls.

When's he going to join the race?

-FJ said...

Only in your imagine-nation, beamish. Only in your imagination.

beamish said...

It would seem so.

Maybe this election and humiliating defeat by Obama will end the Tea Party leftist practice of calling conservatives "RINOs."

beamish said...

...right after Elena Kagan and Clarence Thomas recuse themselves from the Obamacare v. America Supreme Court case and Obama successfully argues that the individual mandate is a tax like Social Security and Medicare and therefore cannot be severed from the law.

-FJ said...

will end the Tea Party leftist practice of calling conservatives "RINOs."

Still upset over Arlen Spectre's defection, are we Beamish?

Sorry beamish, Olympia Snow and Susan Collins aren't running for the nomination. "Generic Republican" must be a misogynist.

-FJ said...

...the term "conservative" will as poisonous as socialists have made the term "liberal."

Get used to the concept, Beamish. Because unless our next President actually has more on the ball than TotUS, the Republican label is going to look extremely dull against a pile a dogsh*t.

And Romney doesn't have the cajones it's going to take to inflict the economic pain necessary to turn this economy around.

-FJ said...

We need a hard-nosed President, not another brown nosed one.

beamish said...

Sorry beamish, Olympia Snow and Susan Collins aren't running for the nomination. "Generic Republican" must be a misogynist.

BWHAHAHAHA!

Depends on who's to defend the "family name."

To hear the freakshow populist coalition of national socialists and communists that call themselves the Tea Party "movement" tell it, the Republican "name" should only be carried by avatistic racists (Ron Paul, Michelle Bachmann), closeted homos (Michelle Bachmann via her husband, and Rick Perry), big business tax cheats (Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain), and hypocritical fringe "Christians" (Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Sarah Palin).

The Tea Party "movement" is what happens when you ask Thomas Nast to draw a caricature of left-wing smears of Republicans.

beamish said...

...that too would change, if the Tea Party "movement" knew how to attract conservatives into its fold.

-FJ said...

Your imaginary conservative party of 1 at the RNC Convention has a LOT to be commended going for it, beamish, unanymity being its' foremost. Unfortunately, it's not very suitable attribute for a nation that elects its' leaders by majority vote.

beamish said...

There will be plenty of conservatives at the RNC convention.

I just wonder why they never show up at Tea Party events.

beamish said...

I will give Herman Cain credit for taking time out from his stemwinding defenses of Mitt Romney vs. Rick Perry to tell us Chris Christie is "too liberal."

I guess that's better than Michelle Bachmann's "too fat" argument.

-FJ said...

BWAH-HA-HA-HA!

"Attract Conservatives into its fold..."

A real conservative wouldn't go within 1,000 yards of ANY political event, RNC, DNC OR other.

A REAL conservative is too busy doing what HE wants to do than care about what the rest of us are up to. The only way you'll ever get a REAL conservative into office is if he were to usurp the office by force in order to pursue his own agenda.

And there are no "White Knights" coming to save us from the evil dragons. Enceladus feet may be covered with dragon's scales, but the dragon's teeth/ eggs are generally held in higher regard.

-FJ said...

There will be plenty of conservatives at the RNC convention.

Each hoping to return home with a dragon's egg...

So much for your "Republican" conservatives.

beamish said...

Then I'll simply ask you (again squared if not cubed) to recite for me what is "conservative" about each of the following:

Ron Paul
Donald Trump
Michelle Bachmann
Herman Cain
Rick Perry
Chris Christie

I have no illusions that Mitt Romney, John Huntsman, or Gary Johnson are "conservatives" (though of them, Gary Johnson is far more credibly "conservative" than any of those two.)

Rick Santorum is unassailable as an across-the-board conservative. Newt Gingrich STOPPED Rick Perry's beloved Hillarycare from becoming law.

So, Teabagger, where is the "conservatism" the CPAC glitter fags of the Tea Party "movement" claim they see in Ron Paul, Donald Trump, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, and Chris Christie?

Thersites said...

If you're so eager to collect a dragon stone, beamish, go directly to the source

The PETA conservative and MR Government solution are YOUR idea of "conservatives"....


BWAH-HA-HA-HA.


Hey, I'd vote for either of THEM if they got the nomination. But why are BOTH of them below Romney McBamacare in the polls?

-FJ said...

...because of the Tea Party candidates? Or because they're both Mitt Romney's stalking horses?

beamish said...

I didn't start this "RINO / not conservative enough" vetting process. You Teabaggers did, the first time Mitt Romney didn't win the GOP nomination.

Your "movement" has failed to find a candidate more conservative than John McCain, and two of its "darlings" actually abdicated their duties as Congressmen and campaigned hard to make Obamacare permanent (there is no other way to describe campaign support for Christine O'Donnell and Sharon Angle).

I'm not asking for perfection. A conservative candidate will do.

beamish said...

Hey, I'd vote for either of THEM [Santorum and Gingrich] if they got the nomination. But why are BOTH of them below Romney McBamacare in the polls?

Because Obama has no primary challengers, so the disgruntled KKK wing of the Democratic Party is jamming the Republican primaries with Hillary Clinton / Tea Party proxies.

You don't have any hard questions, do you?

-FJ said...

the first time Mitt Romney didn't win the GOP nomination.

No John McCain did... and GW Bush, before him... and Bob Dole before him...

How many losers do you need to nominate, beamish. Something OBVIOUSLY hasn't been working well for you "conservatives"

-FJ said...

Your "movement" has failed to find a candidate more conservative than John McCain

Spoken by the representative from the "conservative movement" that gave us...

John McCain.

-FJ said...

You don't have any hard questions, do you?

Just one. What planet did you just beam down from?

-FJ said...

Every Tea Party candidate in the current crop is 10x the conservative that the next RNC "establishment darling" Mitt Obomkneecare is.

But I understand. You're going to hold out for the worst in the hope that "Generic Republican" is still going to jump in the race and save the day for you. Wow....

-FJ said...

There's a reason why the dragon's scales are on our feet, beamish.

beamish said...

Every Tea Party candidate in the current crop is 10x the conservative that the next RNC "establishment darling" Mitt Obomkneecare is.

So you shouldn't have any problems demonstrating how. (For the record, that's the gazillionth time I've asked what is "conservative" about any of the Tea Party darlings).

Answer the question, Claire.

beamish said...

John McCain.


Who went all mavericky and RINO and gave us Sarah Palin.

beamish said...

Had to get that disgruntled Hillary / KKK wing / Tea Party vote somehow, I suppose.

-FJ said...

what is "conservative" about any of the Tea Party

They aren't going to stimulate Mitt Romenycare's buddies pockets. They aren't going to pray to Gaia and turn America into the UN's next Natural Conservancy. And they're not going to use the EPA to drive what remains of corporate America to canada, Brazil, Russia and China or turn it over to UAW and make them the controlling "shareholders".

-FJ said...

...but hey, if you think Romney's going to tell his Massachusetts donors that Obromneycare's a no go, his Salt Lake City polygamist donors that Manlove in the military's going to be a sin, again, or that another trillion dollar "stimulus" to bankers pockets is going to save "Wall Street" AND "Main Street"... by all means grab your p*ss bucket and run to carry his water some more.

-FJ said...

The RNC establishment needs lots of p*ss boys.

-FJ said...

Of course, the RNC brand is going to be at the bottom of THAT bucket, but what do I care? Us Tea Partiers will all be registered Democrats by 2016.

beamish said...

Us Tea Partiers will all be registered Democrats by 2016.

As if you Teabaggers weren't already. Sorry Grandpa, Lincoln made black slavery illegal. We have a black president. Get over it.

if you think Romney's going to tell his Massachusetts donors that Obromneycare's a no go, his Salt Lake City polygamist donors that Manlove in the military's going to be a sin, again, or that another trillion dollar "stimulus" to bankers pockets is going to save "Wall Street" AND "Main Street"... by all means grab your p*ss bucket and run to carry his water some more.

If the Tea Party "movement" has an actual conservative alternative to Romney in their ranks, why aren't they deploying them?

Romney didn't pull the GOP "establishment" leftward. That would be your fellow "I can't live without my Social Security and Medicare" Baby Boomers and their great contribution to America... a $14.5 Trillion debt.

beamish said...

Of course, asking the graying children to work hard and provide for their own and themselves without government assistance is all that "family values" rhetoric that Teabaggers hate.

It takes a village to raise a Teabagger, you know.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" - Karl Marx, at the Gotha Tea Party event.

The Absolute Marxist said...

If the Republican Party had any actual conservatives in it, they wouldn't need the Tea Party to provide "conservatives" for Republicans to vote for.

The Absolute Marxist said...

We need another strong Senatorial candidate like Bob Dole on the Presidential ticket... do you think we can convince Rick Santorum to run? It's his turn, after all. That is, if we can slip a little daylight between him and Dick Durbin on the PETA issue... we should be able to convince real "conservatives" like beamish to vote for him.

The Absolute Marxist said...

btw - How are those Rick "bring the stillborne baby home for their brothers to play with" Santorum family values working out for ya' beamish?

The Absolute Marxist said...

It takes a family to abort Gabriel Michael Santorum, right beamish?

I must say your "Absolute Marxist" sock puppet is considerably less convincing as a faux leftist than your "Joe Conservative" sock puppet. You should have "Absolute Marxist" claim to be a Teabagger too, for maximum impact.

Either that or Santorum in 2008 was Tea Party before the Tea Party went gay at CPAC.

"A foolish hobgoblin has an inconsistent little mind." - Beamish, 2007

Let me get this straight. The thoroughly left-wing Tea Party wants to "punish" Mitt Romney for Obomneycare by attacking each other instead of him?

Are you sure you've identified which stalking horses belong to whom?

beamish said...

Why? He's a "beamish conservative".

Michelle Bachmann - attacked Tim Pawlenty, presently attacking Rick Perry, won't attack Mitt Romney

Rick Perry - attacked Mitt Romney, wants Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain to birth a gay ass baby, will drop out of the race soon

Herman Cain - attacked Rick Perry, launching pre-emptive strikes on Chris Christie, PRAISES Mitt Romney as a businessman / jobs creator

Ron Paul - awaiting orders from SAVAK to detonate himself at the GOP convention

Gary Johnson - hasn't climbed Mt. Everest or the polls, attacking no one, including Mitt Romney.

Newt Gingrich - attacking the debate moderators (and not Mitt Romney)

Rick Santorum - likes Newt Gingrich, hasn't attacked Romney

John Huntsman - no one remembers what he said, including himself

I see a pattern.

The Tea Party wants Romney to be the Republican nominee more than ANYBODY on the planet.

You mean your fellow Tea Party socialists need more time to dig up photos of Rick Perry hunting at "Camp Niggerhead?"

I'd have thought your pathetic Tea Party "movement" would be interested in knocking Mitt Romney out of the race. But they wouldn't be good Romney stalking horses if they did that, now would they?

If it were up to me, all of the GOP primaries would be held on the same day.

Or, do you Tea Party socialists need more time to figure out what a conservative is?

Surely you're all begging Hillary Clinton to jump in the race already.

teabagger - A derrogatory term I learned from my new drinking buddy at the male strip club where I went drinking last night. Every time I go out drinking with that guy, I wake up with a funny taste in my mouth and a sore butt. Maybe I should stop hanging out with that guy...

beamish said...

You must not have a copy of the actual Beamish dictionary...

Teabagger - a member of a left-wing populist coalition of welfare statists, al-Qaeda sympathizers, Al Gore 2000 voters, and disgruntled KKK-wing Democrat Hillary Clinton supporters. Bitterly opposed to the democratic outcomes of Republican primaries, prone to making farcical statements like "Donald Trump is a conservative" and "Michelle Bachmann's husband isn't gay." Politically irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, Teabaggers threaten to stay home from elections, like they always do.

Given the choice in 2000 between a center-right Bush, a left-wing Gore, and a far left Nader, you chose Nader.

No wonder you're a Teabagger.

I want to vote for the candidate that is as far right as possible. Mitt Romney is a moderate / center-leftist. Relatively to the right of the left-wing all star Teabagger Troupe, and well to the right of Obama.

Are you sure it will end the true romance of the Ron Paul r3v0£ution?

You'll WISH Obama was going to be re-elected in 2012 so that you might have a conservative "white knight" hristie/Rubio President in 2016, and all the pain that this country is going to go through for the next 4 years would be attributed to Democrat malfeasance, just as the past THREE have... but THAT isn't going to happen.

This country isn't suffering from Democrat malfeasance. It's suffering from Democrat AND Republican malfeasance.

And I can GUARANTEE you one thing. The time for Democrat/Republican establishment clowns "taking turns" screwing up is over.

Ron Paul would be 10x the President Mitt Romney could ever be. The same goes for almost everybody ELSE currently in the race. The "go-along to get along" RNC-DNC alliance days are over. We're going laissez-faire. The eyeglasses for Plutus days of government selected winners-losers in the economy are over. You're on your own, Americans. Liberty offers no guarantees that the poor and oppressed are going to survive.

If Ron Paul ran for President ten times, he might cumulatively get as many votes as Romney did in the 2008 primaries.

Besides, Ron Paul only does what the Kremlin and SAVAK tell him to do.

Transparency in communism LOL. You Nader-baggers are silly.

beamish said...

Does your sock puppet collective prefer the term "Nadercons" or "Teabagger Nads?" I don't want to offend.

Speedy G said...

Try using 'conservatives'. It's as accurate as the beamish characterization of the word.

So which of his wealthy donors did Romney blow today, beamish? The old Bush donors? Or the new Obama ones? Unless you're plugged into him 24/7, your never going to channel his message accurately.

beamish said...

Teabagger Nads it is, then.

Personally, I don't care who gives money to what candidate. For one, they're not giving my money away, and for two, no one has ever paid me to VOTE a certain way.

How much money do your fellow Nadbaggers need to dig up pictures of Rick Perry hunting at Camp Niggerhead?

Speedy G said...

I hate to tell you this beamish, but you don't have a VOTE in Congress. You already gave it away to Mitt.

And what I want to know is, how much did the Koch brothers pay YOU to paint the word "niggerhead" under every other rock in East Texas?

I haven't given anything to Romney. I don't even give him credit for doing so well in the polls, given his opposition are all far leftists.

And what I want to know is, how much did the Koch brothers pay YOU to paint the word "niggerhead" under every other rock in East Texas?

Quid pro quo. How much is George Soros paying you to be an idiot?

Speedy G said...

beamish said...

Why are you Nadbaggers running interference for Romney?

beamish said...

Sarah Palin is probably Romney's biggest supporter, what with her leaving her "stalking horses" to be decimated and never entering the race herself.

I guess that makes her part of the grand establishment conspiracy, huh?

You never should have trusted her. RINO McCain Jedi mind tricked you into liking her LOL.

beamish said...

There sure is a lot of "quit" in the Teabagger dogs, isn't there? "I'm gonna go rogue and quit!"

Conservatives want candidates that will fight.

-FJ said...

lol! Sarah Palin is the Ace up the sleeve. Just TRY and give the nomination to Romney. See what happens.

-FJ said...

....can you say "2nd term" for Barrack?

beamish said...

Romney will win the nomination because no conservatives came out to challenge him. For one, you can't count on the quitter Nadbaggers for a conservative, they don't even know what one is.

Best just stay home from the polls and whine in irrelevance, like y'all always do.

beamish said...

Here's a funny scenario though... what if Palin registers as a Democrat to put Obama through a primary hell?

Nah, she wouldn't do that. Would require balls.

beamish said...

Will Herman Cain make it into the Johto League?

-FJ said...

Sorry, beamish, but go-along-to-get-along "conservatives" aren't on the people's "wish list" for 2012, even at a discount price. So if you insist that Romney be your nominee, you're just going to have to accept Barrack Obama as your president for another four years.

Why doesn't Romney run as a Democrat? Oh, because THAT would take balls. And "conservatives" are well known NOT to have any. That's why they suggest "women" do those sort of things... as castrati can't.

beamish said...

I didn't make Romney the frontrunner. You and your fellow left-wingers did.

So, tell me. Is Herman Cain going to share with us the sage wisdom of Poppa Smurf next?

Speedy G said...

Poppa Smurf beats your favorite, Mitt Roney, every day of the week.
