Ted Nugent in 2016?

Cajun Mark Wrote: Jul 05, 2013 11:08 AM
ever think that Ted could shame those political types into real discussion and debate4 rather than more politico-speak?
Rubio will forever be remembered for selling out the conservatives. Any aspirations he had for higher office is over. He can go back to Cuba with his head held high now.
I doubt if West has a reasonable shot at any POTUS candidacy, BUT I think he would win either Senate seat in 14 or 16. I also believe that West would never sell out his country with some bogus immigration bill....Makes me wonder how close to being Christie Rubio is morphing into....

Five Annoying Types Of Republicans

Cajun Mark Wrote: Jun 17, 2013 10:41 AM
John, love the columns you write a lot, but you forgot to mention another type of Republican...the ankle grabber. These are the leaders in the GOP, elected/non-elected, that automatically grab their ankles when a liberal walks in the room. See John Boehhner, Mitch McConnell, etc. Talking tough means nothing if you are not willing to back it up with actions...How about a 90% GOP compromise instead?
you want to change the IRS? then get behind candidates who will actually take the steps to abolish the IRS, EPA, Dept of Education and other useless forms of a Communist regime... milquetoasts like Romney, McCain, Dole and their ilk are not going to do anything to disrupt the corporate inbred politics of corruption.

(Dole)ing Out Blame For Gridlock

I have had enough of these old fossils that lost their chance to be President by running gawd awful campaigns. Like McCain, Dole needs to go disappear. after all, Dole's record in Congress is one of bigger govt and he is responsible for the '86 amnesty law that we are now dealing with....Sen. Dole, thank you for your service. Now please go away.
Hillary will be announcing here Prez run the same week she comes out of the closet....guaranteed

First of all, outside of Rush and Levin, most of the conservative talking heads are so damn predictable and basically GOP suck ups. I guess that is why a new conservative news network is coming in July. I really got upset when Fox News back Romney before the primaries were just getting started. I guess out of touch, rich white guys all think alike. The other problem is that the same old guests and political losers are featured guests. Outside of Beckel and Gutfeld The Five is unwatchable. Hey Mr. Ailes, even the Corvette needed to make changes to stay relevant and yet stay the same classy car it always has been...

Where's Luca Brasi When You Need Him?

The first losers that needs to go is the heads of the GOP, and the rest of the consultants can follow him to the glue factory for retirement. The second losers that need to go is the Congressional GOP leaders as they have nothing to offer and are now proven losers. Has McConnell ever won the Senate since he has been leader? Does Boehner always have to grab his ankles when Obama walks into the room? Now, is the time for GOP folks to get real serious about the party. Is it the party of conservative values and principals, or morphing into "liberal light"? I would suggest to conservatives to not only withhold any contributions to the national party until they not only make some serious changes at the top. Yep, you can make your voice heard..
Let's make this easy. The term is "public service". To me, this means serving the good of the public for a limited length of time, AND then going back into the private sector where they came from. It also means they should receive a salary without ANY benefits excluding health insurance while they are in office only. Absolutely no pensions, no extended health care benefits after they leave office, no free rides on military jets for personal use. Then, if these congressional types cannot perform their duties according to the US Constitution then they receive no salary for that year (no budget/no salary) Did I mention term limits?
