Two raggedity old pots calling the kettle black! I think they're just jealous that Paul stole their spotlight. At least Paul had the fortitude to go through with a REAL filibuster, not one of those sneeky, backdoor holds that McCain and Graham were gutlessly famous for.
No, I got that point, but was going after author's misguided attack on Beckel. There is plenty to after Beckel on, but don't use a tool of the Left, which is to quote dubious "studies" meant to promote and specific agenda regardless of the "truth" behind the study.
Way to go Leah, attack Bob Beckel's ignorance by using a little of your own. Did you bother to even look at the preposterous numbers cited in the NYU study? It looks a lot like the homelessness studies from the 1980s, where they defined what they were looking for so broadly that it couldn't help but pad their numbers to the point that almost everyone could at some time or another be considered "homeless." Feminists, whose theories permeate universities such as NYU, define "rape" so broadly that almost sexual encounter could be called rape. I didn't believe it could happen, but you actually out-Beckeled Beckel, with regards to making an ignorant statement.
Most liberals do not believe in a balanced budget, or any budget for that matter. There are no limits if you believe it's all yours for the taking.
Timely analogy, as Hooey was instrumental in helping push through a Maryland state ballot question this past November to expand casino gambling in the state. A tax by any other name ...
I have to suffer this fool Hooey as I live in his Congressional district. Needless to say, my views are unrepresented in Congress.

You might want to take another dose of that code liver oil, as you are surely full of it! How about providing some critical feedback instead of contriving some half-witted attempt at being snarky.
Not suggesting that Conservatives flee or are fleeing, but are being pushed away by the Establishment GOP. Re-read what I posted earlier. The Tea Party joined with the Republican Party because they thought it provided their best avenue for success, only to have the GOP insiders denigrate them and actively push them away. The Libertarians had their own party and nominated candidates for decades, only to see them, and the ideals Libertarians hold dear, washed away in electoral defeat. So, they joined the GOP with the same hope as the tea Partiers, only to be marginalized in like manner. It seems that "1%" is more powerful than you acknowledge.
Yeah, and and there was this guy named Abe Lincoln, who got crushed in his first electoral adventure as a Republican after leaving the Whig Party. I wonder how he turned out? The other fact is that is NOT the Democrats who are riving the GOP. Why would they? Especially when the Establishment Republicans are doing such a good of it on their own. And don't blame anyone else other than the GOP Establishment. Remember that the Tea Party stuck with the GOP, despite attempts by the Establishment to co-opt the Tea Party and then purge them when that failed. The Libertarians dissolved their own party to join the Republicans after they were convinced (deceived?) into believing they had a better shot at re-shaping policy within the GOP.
The Establishment has turned the GOP into the New Whig Party -- just as clueless and just as irrelevant as the old Whig Party was in 1854. Just as the Republican Party formed out of the remnants of the old Whig Party, a new, more conservative, phoenix will rise from the ashes of the New Whigs.
