After Iowa, the circular firing squad may stand down

(page 2 of 2)

Bonus Platinum Subscriber errata:

Thanks to all who participated in the Bring It! caucus poll.

•   Hillary won six of six coin tosses to settle Iowa caucus precinct ties. The Packers could use her.

•   Brother Sikma says, “75.6% of GOP caucus goers in Iowa vote for a candidate not named Trump. That’s a good evening.”

•   Brother Fraley fantasizes, “Iowa Democrats accidentally sent 90 precincts’ results to a private email server stored in a bathroom in Colorado.”

•   Venezuela is feeling the Bern. (Story here on its complete economic implosion.)

•   Raise your hands if you think Chelsea Clinton should be posted the next ambassador to Benghazi.

Quote of the week: ”She has escaped prosecution more times than El Chapo.” — Carly Fiorina, the next ambassador to the U.N., about the Hildabeast.

Dave, the Republic party establishment created that firing squad by encouraging the Tea Party. Now the party finds it can't control the Party. Pity. Those guys are even "unfriending" YOU? Good luck winning any ungerrymandered elections.
The crack about Chelsea was tacky.

I don't want a leader who can "work with" the engineers of the status quo.
The other 99 senators and the 300+ clowns who voted for the last Omnibus spending bill ARE the problem.
I want someone who says I will lead. Washington will follow or get out of the way.
Again I say as an idealogue that I hope this election is about competence.

Also, how many times has thr Left and the RINO wing proclaimed the Tea Party dead?

You think the Republican Party establishment ENCOURAGED the Tea Party?

Explat: of course they encouraged it, it's obvious. Don't be such a blind ideologue. They encouraged that blind anger after the ACA passed ("Keep your govt hands off my Medicare!"), thought they could ride that tiger to electoral success, and are dimmly surprised (hello, Blaska) to find that tiger considers them breakfast, too. They did the same thing with the Moral Majority in the 80's. The GOP powers-that-be (the big donors) think all voters are suckers, including its own. Do you consider Walker to be Tea Party or establishment? You're being played. You think Cruz is a leader? Sure, in an authoritarian sense. But you guys love that style of leadership.

Democrats are looking at a Venezuelan-type socialist and an FBI person of interest. But you guys love that style of leadership.

And to think you called me obtuse.
You are all over the lot here.
Are you over ballyhooing Trump to ensure a Clinton presidency?

Dave: hyperbole much? Explat: either Trump or Cruz guarantee an easy ride for Hillary. Thanks for the help, boys!
