Get your predictions in!

I am going with Tim Pawlenty. He's a clean dork, and he's from Minnesota.

The questions that are on everyone's mind at this hour ...

(1) How old?
(2) How white?

The GOP got burned pulling a wild card with Palin. They're gonna go back to basics, big time.

Here's my top 3 predictions -

I'm sure he will "evolve" 3 years into his first term on that one, and then we can all dismiss it as ever being an issue in the first place.

I'm sorry PS. Are you still ANYTHING BUT OBAMA'ing?
How many stages of denial are you going to experience throughout the political process leading up to the election and then after Obama has been re-elected?
Take my word for it. It's going to happen. ANYTHING BUT X does not work, has not worked and never will. It only produces lesser men up to the challenge than the seemingly failed original. Not saying Obama's really achieved anything - all I know about is that he ordered the hit on Osama bin Laden. That's it. Lol.
Renewed yet infused with apathy.
Let's just have a good time, all right?

Romney and Ryan will win the election if they each focus on their own specific messages: Romney must focus on jobs, the economy, and prosperity; Ryan must focus on restoring fiscal sanity and responsibility to Washington. Do those things with comprehensive and understandable plans and America will support them. =D>

That would be HIGHLY unfortunate, in my opinion. Tea Party absorbed fully, back to the status quo.

I think Pawlenty would be a good choice, as would Allen West.

The announcement creates an understandable buzz...
Batman would have been a better choice.

Rmoney's focus is becoming the Prez. The message, continue fucking middle America
is still a hard sell. "Comprehensive and understandable" plans? His attempts to please
everyone while traveling abroad recently showed his lack of diplomatic skills. Can Ryan
make a difference there? His tenure in Washington has yet to produce a solution to the
financial dilemma beyond his plan to spend trillions of dollars as a cure.

So how would that be unfortunate? Paul Ryan is the only person in Congress in either chamber who has actually been working on fiscal issues and restoring sanity to our fiscal sanity.

Well, removing Obama from the presidency and Reid from the Senate Majority Leadership will go a long way in producing those results. Remember, the only thing Reid has on his agenda for this fall is following the Washington Nationals attempting to make the baseball postseason; he's not concerned with planning a voting agenda in the Senate.

Because you just don't understand what the Tea Party has done and is doing. The Tea Party is remaking the Republican party, not being absorbed by them.

Then why did Ted Cruz just win a runoff election last week in Texas? Why have several other Tea Party people defeated establishment Republicans in elections all around the country?

Your standard is that the Tea Party must win every single election to be considered relevant and not co-opted. That's an impossible standard to achieve. When building a movement, you will win some elections and you will lose some elections. You choose to focus on one race while ignoring the many other races around the nation that are going on that involve Tea Party people. The Tea Party is much more than one election.

Actually, the Tea Party isn't any elections any longer, as the Tea Party no longer exists except as an adjunct of the Republican Party.

Then I guess you'll just have to keep your blind eyes closed and ignore what is happening in 2012. The Tea Party still exists, it's just getting out there voting, volunteering, and running for offices instead of protesting. It's working to actually cause real change instead of just protesting the status quo.
