There is no such thing in this world anymore as a moderate Republican leader, there were a couple still roaming free in 2008 but they have been driven out to the edges of Maine.... .

Ronald Reagan could not get the Republican nomination from the present bunch of rock-ribbed ideologues now running the GOP. I'm sure, amongst the farmers and the truck-drivers, there are people who consider themselves to be Republicans but they are pale shadows of the deeply dyed No-taxes Ever, contraception begins two weeks before coitus, vote anything and everything the opposition proposes down crowd.

@IRFRANK,
They were purged once the infatuation with social sciences proved to be as susbtantive as a school-girl crush.

TR was definately a Progressive, but Lincoln and Ike? How did you reach that highly flawed conclusion?

@Joe Nation,
That's the long and short of it as far as I can tell, yes. Sad and scary days in the US, and getting worse, looks like.

We are reading much about the split in the Republican Party. Isn't it true there is a split of growing proportions among Democrats?

@edgarblythe,
I think that was true before Romney's 47% speech, but now they all know who their "enemy" is. That might be another unintended consequence of Romney's big mouth.

@cicerone imposter,
That's short-term. I mean, once the election is over.

@edgarblythe,
Probably true; I'm in the same boat as many of those who has too many issues with Obama's past four years.

You're suggesting that the arch war criminal, terrorist, felon Reagan was a moderate???

As FBM said, "Sad and scary days in the US, and getting worse, looks like."

That usually equates to sadder and scarier days for some innocents in some poor country.

A little ditty that is under FEC investigation. I love this quote.

Quote:
Moore told Blomquist that managers "communicated to our workforce that the attendance at the Romney event was mandatory, but no one was forced to attend."

@Finn dAbuzz,
Obviously didn't do much research, but Ike did build the interstate system. Lincoln had his hands full with only one issue. If you say they weren't progressive I know better than to argue. Compare them to today's conservatives. Do you see Romney or Ryan giving the speech warning about the military complex? Or signing the emancipation proclamation?

Lincoln started the building of the transcontinental railroad at the highes of the civil war so he and Ike did have the concern of this country transportation system in common.

Side note it is telling that in the middle of the civil war the north still have the resources and the vision to started such a large scale engineering project.

@IRFRANK,
Yes, I can certainly see Romney and Ryan championing freedom from slavery. Are you trying to suggest that they would be silent on slavery either today or if they were somehow whisked back to the mid 1800's?

To my knowledge, no president has given a speech on the military industrial complex since Ike and I don't think too many people are convinced it no longer exists or can't be detrimental. That includes Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton and Obama. Do you have low esteem, as a result, for them?

But all that is mere words. It fails to address whether they have the right way forward. It blithely assumes that rock-ribbed ideologues are not what is good for the USA.

And it naively fails to address that these RRIs were educated at schools much the same as those their sunken-chest wobbly opponents were and who they are battling with for possession of a gorgeous honey-pot of patronage, pork and power and a handle on the destiny of the nation.

Being aligned with rock-ribs, farmers and truck drivers obviously plays well with jelly-wobble restaurant staff and other forms of indentured servants who shun ideology because they make it up as they go along without reference to what went before or what might come after.

It is important to carry states as well as win the Big One.

I think contraception two weeks before coitus is better than 28 weeks after. I think no taxes might be a very good thing and that everything liberals say is tripe.

And my assumptions are as good as anybody else's.

His campaign could be going so badly that people actually believe it when it is "reported" that his running mate calls him "the stench."

Sorry, But Mitt Romney's Nickname Is Not “The Stench”

Quote:
When Roger Simon wrote in Politico Wednesday that Paul Ryan's new nickname for Mitt Romney is "Stench," a number of news outlets — from MSNBC to Mediaite — took it seriously.

Simon told BuzzFeed: "Some people always don't get something, but I figured describing PowerPoint as having been invented to euthanize cattle would make the satire clear. I guess people hate PowerPoint more than I thought."

Below, some of the more credulous examples.

@djjd62,
Oh, but yes; he wants to become president just to have the title and power.
