Wingnuts are obsessed when Obama does ANYTHING. They should just zip it because we had 8 years of their boy king, and he was a disaster. The Iraq war costs us 10 billion a month, hows that for wasting money? Obama must be getting under your skin, are your heads going to explode?Limbaugh is also in a full freaking meltdown, damn, I hope Obama wins in 2012, just for the pure unadulterated pleasure of wingnuts getting on the Crazy Train. Obama is just plain smarter than everyone else. Plain and simple.Comment Posted By Joe On 1.06.2009 @ 19:38
"Sotomayor will be a disaster for America" WTF? Thats about as off the wall as anything you have ever said Rick. Did you look into your crystal ball for that one? No one knows how she'll turn out to be, anything like that is just partisan hackery...plain and simple. Come back to earth and join the rest of the world. Top of her class at Princeton Law for the love of man, get real.
Holy Jesus! Who the fuck cares what her grades were in college! How can that possibly qualify her to be a SCOTUS? That is moronic.
As for the partisan hackery, if you don't know by now that I call em as I see em, then you never will. Given the way I've trashed the GOP over the last couple of years (with people like you cheering me on) your idea of partisan hackery is strange indeed. Evidently, if I disagree with you, I am a partisan hack. If we agree, I am a "serious conservative." That too, is moronic.

Whats with the pudgyness of gop speakers? Newt, Rush, Bill Benett, Dick Moriss. Just seems like overpaid, overfed guys that wouldn't know what an honest days work would look like.Why should I listen to guys that can't keep their own bodies in check?Appearances tell a lot about people's motivation and their drive. Newt needs to show me he can push himself away from the dinner table before I take his words seriously.Comment Posted By Joe On 23.05.2009 @ 07:55
freedom's truth....another neocon who has their head in the sand, as they declare there is nothing wrong with the gop. As long as Rush is the head of the movement, it is doomed.Comment Posted By Joe On 20.05.2009 @ 18:36
Great article Rick, you summed up perfectly whats wrong with Limbaugh conservatism.To me the conservative movement today is so narrow-minded its starting to resemble a cult. The cult of Rush, the cult of Hanitty, the cult of Beck. These men are destroying the gop and laughing all the way to the bank. And your right, their litmus test morphs so much you almost need a daily update. Yet the gop seems oblivious to whats happening. They seriously are in a death spiral.Comment Posted By Joe On 18.05.2009 @ 19:40
People like Freedoms Truth control the gop today, thats why they are in trouble. Because to them, nothing is wrong with the party, they will not tolerate any critique of the party (Rick) and they seem not to notice the party shrinking. Wall Street and the banks were completely out of control, wheres the vitriol on the hard right for that fact?Obama tries to rein in the mess and gets branded a leftist. Fine. The only argument I can win nowadays with my conservative friends is that my Democratic Party will continue to win big elections. No, were far from being perfect as far as political parties go, but compared with the modern day gop, we are lightyears ahead imho.Comment Posted By Joe On 14.05.2009 @ 19:51
How long before Judge Posner gets thrown under the bus by the Limbaugh wing?Because that wing says the partys fine and does not need tweaking. Amazing.Comment Posted By Joe On 12.05.2009 @ 19:41
good article Rick,as a loyal Democrat I still feel bad that you've been freezed out from your party.Its so ironic because today Rush said moderates had no true beliefs and conservatives didn't want moderates or independents in the party. From what I see, you can't be a true blue conservative if your critical of conservatism (according to rightwing radio)Thats messed up.Didn't Steele just say the other day,"c'mon all you moderates, with the caveat, your okay as long as you accept our beliefs. Thats more like a cult than a political party.Hang in there.Comment Posted By Joe On 5.05.2009 @ 19:24
The gop is probably more open than the Demos?I split a gut on that one. My party has always been open, its the gop that has a litmus test and a guy named Rush who is the Enforcer. Democrats disagree with each other all the time, its the gop that is rigid in its ideology. We are big tent, the gop is the rapidly shrinking tent. I swear the neocon wing of the gop lives in an alternate universe. I read your article Rick, you were spot on. Keep standing for what you believe in,even if your on the opposite side of the political spectrum as me.Comment Posted By Joe On 4.05.2009 @ 17:58
Sorry, but too many hardcore conservatives on this thread defending Bushco policies that got us into the mess were in now. The rich kept swallowing up most of the economic gains made in the early 2000's. Middle class stiffs like myself kept finding it harder and harder to make ends meet. Call it class warfare if you want, it is what it is. The Limbaugh wing defended the fiasco in Iraq, and accused me of being unpatriotic because I didn't support it. Oil companies raped us at the pump, while Bushco looked the other way. The Limbaugh wing tears down Obama because they know how popular he is and Rushbo knows how much smarter Obama is than the gop leaders. The adults are back in charge. It'll take a few years but the ship will be righted.Comment Posted By Joe On 30.04.2009 @ 07:10
