Yeah, that's not thick rhetoric, Scott, that's living in a made-up world, also known as making **** up because he can't accept reality as it actually is. And living in an alternate reality is insane.

oh btw ignore those polls, Romney is really way ahead and will win in a landslide. It's the same fantasy-world bubble, Scott.

I'm shocked. Shocked.

A new Florida law that contributed to long voter lines and caused some to abandon voting altogether was intentionally designed by Florida GOP staff and consultants to inhibit Democratic voters, former GOP officials and current GOP consultants have told The Palm Beach Post.

Tea Party Leader Calls For Electoral College To Steal The Election For Romney

Quote:
Election, shmelection — the Tea Party has the plan. Judson Phillips, head of the Tea Party Nation, has now called for the usurping of the US Constitution, and forcing their candidate for President to win despite his historic loss. After all, their earlier plan headed up by the Orca vote manipulation system was stopped by Anonymous resulting in Karl Rove’s public meltdown on election night, and the attempts to paint the re-election of President Obama as fraud fell apart as quickly as it was put together, so Mr. Phillips has set out to try and steal the election through another means.
Quote:
It is clear, the Tea Party as represented by Mr. Phillips is an anti-American anti-democracy group intent on dismantling the will of the people and imposing their own Iranian-style theocratic state. The idea of civil liberties, freedom, or the social contract is foreign to them.

Reading the comments on the original WND article makes me think Scott may have been on to something about an illiterate electorate.

Not Mitt Romney......there has been comment's that Mitt might have cheated

somehow.........it need's verified. If Obama and Romney are both out, then the House of Representatives picks the

President, and it could be Ron Paul, as President, which would make the

Libertarian Governor Gary Johnson taking Vice-President. I think this is a very

real possibility, and I think that it might be good for America!
Holy mother of god.

Replace 'communists' with 'secular progressives' and he's not that far off.

Depends on your definition of war. Boots on the ground invasion? Drones overhead? Cyber hacking? Lobbing in a few cruise missiles?

Vitriolic? Yeah, probably... his perception is more likely.

Oh lord.

Quote:
A prolific author, Gingrich said that he would do some of that analysis with a book on the 2012 race, which is due out next summer.

He told the Naples News that the party needed to “modernize and adapt” instead of dwelling on Mitt Romney’s flaws as a candidate and blaming him for the loss.

“Republicans have to stop and take a deep breath,” he said.

He urged a “practical solution” on immigration and said Democrats and Republicans needed to “slow down and listen to each other.”

Are you ****ing kidding me?? "Slow down and listen to each other"?? Gingrich has done more to create the partisanship that has gridlocked DC than just about any politico since Lee A****er.

**** off, Newt.

Serious question Scott. Remember affirmative action and how well that worked out? Do you think schools should be forced to enact similar policies with regressive conservatives? For the sake of equality and regardless of merit or achievement?

Nope.

Never been a fan of reverse discrimination and I would not be a fan of reverse reverse discrimination.

I was so looking forward to your reaction re: solar energy subsidies, Scott.

But that's the position those making such claims are tending to put themselves in. Not that they'll be taken seriously of course, but they aren't offering plausible alternatives; let alone explanations of how this has come to pass.
