I think that "tiffany's" gingrich will quite possibly emerge as the republinominee for THIS reason!

Let's review. bain romney has never been able to catch fire with the republican teabagger base. Every 4 minutes it seems, there emerges another "non-romney" alternative. While that alternative usually flames out fairly quickly (or in the case of little ricky santorum, leaks out), they always seem to be there. Certainly this would indicate a desire for someone other than willard to take up the bagger banner and get his ass resoundingly thumped in November.

If we take a look at the most politically successful or popular with the far right base republicans in recent elections, you see a pattern. They were freaking mean.

Remember the constant smear campaign against Michael Dukakis in 1988? Remember all of the george w moron crap pulled against both Al Gore and John Kerry? Remember the mcsame/palin(comparison) rallies?

bain romney, who is saturated with smarm and complacency, does attempt to affect an air of sincerity and attempts (badly) to come off as a regular guy. little ricky santorum always acts like the jack off kid in high school who instigates fights and them stands on the sidelines giggling while the other kids punch the daylights out of each other.

"tiffany's" gingrich is just one plain old MEAN AND NASTY CRACKER JERK.

He not only accepts this about himself, he REVELS in it with glory, and the republican/bagger base loves him for it.

This is the man who served his first wife divorce papers while she was in the ICU recovering from cancer. This is the man who served his first mistress/second wife with divorce papers after she was diagnosed with MS. This is the man who started his fortunately brief tenure as Speaker of the House with 2 separate Government shut downs due to his sheer petulance over being required to exit Air Force One from the back exit when he rode to a state funeral with President Clinton. He believed it was his right to leave the President's plane side by side as an equal. This is the man who was all for the impeachment of President Clinton over lying about a BJ as he was lying about geting BJs from the second mistress/third wife/unlikely first lady and GOD knows who else.

Can ANYBODY here remember ANY sincerely nice thing to come out of "tiffany's" gingrich's mouth in the last 30 years that didn't have at least the underlying meanness to it? I certainly can't!

The far right republican/bagger base not only doesn't care about him being a mean bastard and a lying hypocrite, they LOVE him for it.

Why not?

These are the same people who screamed "kill him" about President Obama at the mcsame/palin(comparison) rallies in 2008. They screamed "they should die" about women who got pregnant from a rape as an alternative to abortion. They cheered the execution of a likely innocent man in Texas. They cheered the notion of allowing an uninsured American to die. They boo'd a gay soldier who was serving in a war that THEY fully supported but considered their lives too valuable to serve in that war themselves.

These are the same people who've called people like me, who opposed the Vietnam war, communists, traitors, "long haired hippies" and too many names to mention since (in my personsl experience) 1967 when I was just short of 12. Of course, let's remember that they considered their lives to be too valuable for that war, too. These are the children and grandchildren of the far rightits who hated Charlie Chaplin for being too hard on HITLER in "The Great Dictator".

These are the same people who, after the 1992, 1996 and 2008 elections, believed that they lost because their candidates weren't far enough to the right.

They are clueless and they are stupid and they are racist homophobes and THEY ARE MEAN! They will be only too happy to back a clueless, stupid, racist homophobic and mean candidate. gingrich IS that man. I don't think that they can conceive of the notion that their clueless, stupid, racist homophobic and mean candidate losing because their views are so completely out of touch with mainstream American values to be electable.

That's what happens when you get all of your information from faux news, hannity, coulter, limbaugh, beck and their odious ilk.

Bastard that he is, bain romney is simply not mean enough. little ricky santorum will stick to romney's and gingrich's butts until he gets wiped out (or, more likely, wiped off). Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think I am.

THAT is scary.

PEACE!

1. That all depends on whether Romney/Rove will drop the H-Bomb.

 

I wouldn't like to be in Karl's shoes. Let Mitt do his best to fracture the Reagan coalition, or give Newt a chance to revisit 1972.

4. A Hobson's Choice for the rethugs,...

...and a pleasure for us!

KKKarl may just choose to let bain romney fracture the reagan coalition. After all, he's a bush family toady, and the media likes to ignore the fact that the reagan and the bush families HATE each other!

BTW, denem, pardon my cluelessnes, but exactly what is the H-Bomb?

PEACE!

9. Bookmarked for accuracy. K&R. We were actually posting sort of the

same thing, except I set mine to the tune of Gladiator. It's quite scary.

12. we can only hope..

although - as unlikely as it may be -I can imagine a scenario in which Obama's prospect for reelection took a severe nose dive even if Gingrich is the nominee. If tensions with Iran continue to build - we could very well see oil prices shoot up to $150 to $200 per barrel. It shooting actually starts we should expect to see oil prices rising to $250 to $300 per barrel. This would certainly cause any economic recovery to stall. At the same that the economy goes into free fall we can expect the Republicans to be attacking Obama for being soft on Iran. Although this is not a likely scenario - it is by no means completely implausible either.

13. Good Points.

Barring some sort of disaster I don't see any of these clowns beating President Obama.

Deep in my heart I hold the likely hopeless desire for little ricky santorum to leak through to the nomination and get his as handed to him worse than my girl Serena Williams did at the Australian Open last night..

PEACE!
