    LMAO! It doesn’t just ‘look bad in print.’

    I wonder, is hating people just to hate people starting to lose some of its appeal. I sure hope that at least some people are starting to realize that their hating just isn’t that attractive to that many people. Hate is disgusting and eats people up from the inside. Minimizing it in life is always a better option than maximizing it.

      hate stems from fear. these people live in constant fear due to a huge inadequacy complex. until someone teaches them real self-esteem they will always be jealous little bullies. good luck in teaching them anything, however. if it ain’t in the mythological sky-god’s “book”, they ain’t hearing it.

        Guy, I think mea_mark is speaking to all of us.

      There has to be a psychological and physical burden to maintain the level of hatred the RW base has. I know their blind hatred is generated by fear, but it must get tiring after awhile.

      There is plenty of hate in America today. No one is exempt! Those who think others hate because they don’t agree with their position on a particular subject are the ones most full of hate. Instead of arguing the subject with civility, they attack those with whom they are debating. Name calling does nothing to advance the argument and it makes the one who is doing it look hateful and small minded.

      It is okay to support your idea or party, but why not show respect for someone who supports their idea or party. There must be some middle ground that would be beneficial to all. We see this hate fest everyday in Washington and the America people are suffering for it. We need to elect grownups, not immature children.

    At least they’re honest about it.

    Vote for me! Repubs are too ashamed to admit they’re record low approval party is less popular then dog crap, STD’s and Ebola!

    So they already know the only way they will get any votes from other than their base will be to obfuscate and lie. Wait til they find out we’re on to that part, too. Pass the popcorn.

    The brand is as tarnished as Sarah Palin’s crusty old tiara.

    She’s already serving as Secretary of State, so it’s not as if most voters don’t know she’s a republican! Since she said nothing while the GOPTPers tried to pass a bill to criminalize abortion in the case of rape and were caught training poll workers to turn the handicapped and Spanish-speaking voters away from the polls in 2012, I find it highly offensive to NM’s citizens that she’s now trying to deny her affiliation with her own party. If she disagreed with what party members were doing, she should have spoken out against it at the time they were doing the stupid sh*t. If she had, she wouldn’t be trying to run away today from what she condoned in the recent past with her silence.

    “Known Republican Dianna Duran.”
    I like the sounds of that as a line from an attack ad.
    Maryland Republicans often try to gloss over their party affiliation, too.

    • Ol Blue August 8th, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      How about Dianna Duran Duran? That ought to confuse a few.

    If they paint out the R in Romney, think he’ll have a better landslide FAILURE in 2016?

  10. M D Reese August 8th, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    Oh my goodness. Like we’d never notice…and if we did notice, we wouldn’t be at all curious to find out what was covered up…

    Ex gov of Florida Charlie Christ quit the Repugnat party stating “they are not who they used to be and he would not be a part of their hateful intolerance” (paraphrasing). Charlie is running again for Gov and I’m sure he will displace the criminal Gov Scott who stole billions from taxpayers when he ran a private medical group. Republicans have to go!

    • Always Right August 9th, 2014 at 9:45 am

      Do you live if Florida? Here are a few facts on the two men.

      Scott takes no salary as Governor. Scott co-founded the nation’s largest hospital chain and received a severance package worth more than $300 million when he left Columbia/HCA in 1997. The firm paid a $1.7 billion fine for healthcare fraud. “Scott was not personally implicated in wrongdoing.”

      A persistent critic of public utilities, Charlie Crist reported $90,622 in stock in TECO Energy. He called himself pro-life? Advocated chain gangs for prisoners? Supported a ban on gay marriage and prayer in public school? Signed a bill allowing people to bring guns into the parking lots of the workplace?

      Then there’s his once-cozy relationship with former GOP chairman Jim Greer, awaiting charges of defrauding the party of about $200,000, not to mention a couple of Crist fundraisers who went to prison. Crist is an opposition researcher’s dream.

      Crist abandoned the job of governor once before. Assured of re-election in 2010 at a time when Florida needed leadership the most, its economy cratering under the Great Recession, Crist put himself first and decided to run for U.S. Senate.

      Florida bled jobs while Crist was in charge and gained jobs under Scott.

      One other reason not to trust Charlie Crist is that he is a turncoat; how can you trust someone who switches positions all the time. Also, the fact that he is a current attorney makes me concerned. Attorney’s may be good public speakers, but they generally make very poor managers. We need more business people in leadership.

    A person like this is not worthy of my vote if they refuse to run on their own platform, whether it is Republican or Democrat. You need to stand up for your beliefs and not bend to public opinion, but to sway public opinion to what you believe because your plan is better. She is not a Republican and if she decides to change parties, the Democrats should refuse to accept her.

    This video clearly shows the problem with the Republican party. I’m sure someone made one about the Democrat party as well. Our leaders are all failing the American people.
