GOP Frankenstein: Modern Conservative Prometheus

Written on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 by


At a recent lunch with friends, the inevitable political discussion cropped up. We all know that, with the U.S. in such dire straits and a hapless socialist at the wheel, the import of the coming election season cannot be underestimated. All with a brain agree that the current course is suicide, so the most important question is “who ya gonna vote for?” I have been as susceptible to the ABR (Anybody But Romney) bounce as the next guy so, the lack of an answer frustrates and frankly scares me. I often joke that “We had to make it through Carter to get to Reagan so our next President will be equal to George Washington.” *

Funny line but Washington, Reagan or even an honest and anti-government growth Democrat like Grover Cleveland is not waiting in the wings. It is going to be another season in which holding your nose and voting for ABo (Anybody But obama) is more important than anything else. Anyway, I digress. I was asked which GOP candidate I back and, after thinking for half a second (way longer than I normally wait to voice an opinion), I said “I wish we could ‘Frankenstein’ them as none of them are near good enough.” The comment was greeted by laughter and then a suggestion that I should write about it. We all know the original tale but here is the brief story of GOP Frankenstein: Modern Conservative Prometheus:

It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld my man completed, his origin stemming from desperation. I descended the stone steps to my gloomy and cobwebbed GOP laboratory. Before me lay my hapless candidates; perfect in some fashions, deficient in so many others.

“For whom shall you vote, Master?” It was my misshapen servant Igor. I simply sighed, knowing none of the individuals to be a precise fit for the turbulent times ahead. (I also cringed knowing that, were evil liberal villagers about, they would attack with torches and pitchforks once hearing an employee call his Conservative employer “Master.”)

 My grim countenance this night, just under a year away from our next election, was suddenly broken by an epiphany; a mad, simply inconceivable idea. A thusly timed lightening flash would surely have illuminated a maniacal grin spreading across my face. “Igor, to my side! We have much work to do this night. We shall build the perfect President. Quickly now, to the  first slab!”


Herman Cain:   Hmmmm…this was difficult. I liked many things about this man but, ultimately, if one cannot run a campaign competently, one is not equipped to run America, even during calm moments of history. The campaign missteps and muddled foreign policy stances are not what we need but there is much good in the man. From Cain, I took his spirit. He overcame family hardship, Stage-4 cancer, racism (sadly, more from the Left now than in his childhood) and carried on. His frank speech and almost bullheaded ability to plow ahead will serve my President well.

Newt Gingrich:   This was a hard one. Once I dug beneath the surface, much of his core was a confused tangle of contradictions. Truly a mess but I dearly wanted to like him. In the end, I took his reason and voice. In debate and command, Newt’s strongest points will serve the President well.

Jon Huntsman:   From this man, I took his economic/job creation plans and his love of the free market. His understanding of foreign policy was also thrown in as this is especially needed in the current day. Sadly, the man had a Conservative record better than most running but, instead of embracing the fact, he ran to the center and became nearly invisible.

Mitt Romney:   Shocking, this one. While removing the candidate’s suit, Igor and I found it to be almost empty, save for socialized medicine blueprints and an exquisite pair of flip-flops adorning his feet. Ultimately, this one was easy as there was little from which to choose. I took his business experience and ability to appeal to liberals with a brain, few though they may be.

Rick Perry:   We immediately found great hair and a good smile, useful in these modern times. Irregularities were also exhibited. While we found a very substantial brain, we found his tongue was actually tied. Very strange combination and surely cause for his lacking national popularity. Clearing away the chaff, we also managed to salvage useful Conservative beliefs to instill in the President. He shall go forward to implement a flat tax and make Congress get a real job by becoming part-time only.

Ron Paul:   Truly a mess, this one. He was wonderful in some ways and truly terrifying in too many others. I eventually took his hands. Deftly working a calculator, his understanding of intricate finance issues will suit this amalgam President well. It shall be entertaining to watch as he dismantles the Fed. [IMPORTANT: These hands will NOT, however, be allowed to come near foreign policy.]

Rick Santorum:   A true Conservative with good ideas and yet so little charisma that he has remained under the radar. Sad really but there was still so much to take from this one that will be useful, all in ideas and beliefs. I took his brain; lock stock and barrel. Reagan he is not but he is truly right (and Right) minded.

Michele Bachman:  So many things to like with her as well. She too is a Reagan Conservative. She gained traction early but is sadly an afterthought of late. I remembered her however and, to make my creation true, she contributed a most important aspect; I took her heart. Our President will prosper with this guiding light.

I now sit, awaiting a bolt of lightning, praying our Creator will anoint this candidate with life, vitality and the wisdom of our Founders. With such a basis, the President will surely repeal socialized medicine, increase the military while reducing bloated government, protect our boarders, defend the family and restore pride in American exceptionalism. Ye gods, so much to ask!

Hold! Mere moments ago a fiery bolt crashed. Was that an ever so slight movement of my creation’s finger?


My victory as Dr. Frankenstein would have been muted had I known of a most sinister plot, darkly evil yet similar in circumstance, on a night many years prior. Were I to have been a speck of flotsam, floating unnoticed in a stinking dungeon in the sewers of a village named Chicago one particular night, I would have witnessed a powerful man, aged hands deftly crafting a creature personifying his own putrid beliefs. Melding the thuggery of Chicago politics, the world view of one raised on the Western hatred taught in Indonesia, the petty jealousy and laziness inherent in Marxist that simply long to steal the fruits of those that work, the pompousness of those indoctrinated into Progressive thought in liberal universities, all added to a decades-held belief in the evils of “social justice” and black liberation theology. Such sacrilege in a country so great!

“Doctor Soros, what shall you name him?”


P.S. Want to sound smart? Don’t call the Monster “Frankenstein” as most do. Frankenstein was the doctor who created the creature. FYI.

      Good one El Lobo Solo, I see you’re on a roll tonight! Happy smiles to you!

  • Travis

    There is only one true conservative running and you keep knocking his foreign policy.
    What bringing our troops home and not attacking countries that are no threat to us is bad ?
    Please just be honest and admit that you wsnt a living contitution like all the libs.

    • Rich

      Dear Travis and others: I agree that Ron Paul has many “good ” traits as a politician and member of the Senate. If one would follow his line of Foreign policy thinking, IF we pulled all our troops home, abandoned all our foreign bases, and withdrew to our own shores, who would fill the power vacuum left by our pullout? RUSSIA and the muslim horde, all of which would be chomping at the bit to overrun Europe again and re-establish Kremlin rule over all the European countries. Putin is NOT our friend. He still has visons of grandeur in re-establishing the Russian hold on recently “liberated” lands. He thinks of himself as a modern day Stalin.

      We should not be in Libya or Egypt or Syria. If the Sunnis and the Shiites want to duke it out-let them have at it. Iraq is over. I agree. Now it is time for them to repay US for all the hell we have gone through to allow them the privilege to vote. Thanks.

    • TexanConservative

      Unfortunately Rich, you were lulled into this false mindset by the New World Order.

      NO CONSERVATIVE can support Obama’s Iraq or Afghanistan wars. They are not “wars” at all. They are rebuilding operations designed to transfer American wealth into Iraqi and Afghani hands.

      We have spent over a TRILLION dollars REBUILDING Arab countries BACK into a threat. I have a buddy serving in Iraq who said the armies we are training WILL BETRAY us in the future Arab vs Israel war, or if their Imams tell them to.

      Ron Paul basically thinks we shouldn’t spend trillions rebuilding Arab countries. He believes we CAN go to war, but it should be when Congress DECLARES the war, we WIN the war, and we COME HOME.

      We shouldn’t spend our fortune to rebuild Muslims BACK INTO A THREAT! Every other candidate is blind to these wars are “wealth transfers” to the mideast! How else can you explain that Obama once he got into office realized he liked these “wars”?! They must’ve informed him of the true intent.

    • Tyrannosaurus Rex

      The problem with ron paul is, well he is ron paul. He is a moon bat of epic proportions. Even I find some things he has to say have merit. Perhaps we could graft some of his ideas with merit onto ABR.

    • TexanConservative

      Also, I think Putin’s a hundred times better than Obama. He had the courtesy to criticize Obama in a speech to point out that we are copying the USSR’s policies, and that wasn’t the answer to the economic crises.

      It’s kind of sad, but history has flipped. The USA is the new USSR, and Russia/China are embracing capitalism.

      We may face a new future with capitalist dictatorships versus democratic communists. A sad and scary future.

    • Lee

      I suppose that passes as hyperbole in the Far Right world. Read what you’re writing, man.

  • Hank is back

    As fantastic as this all may be, the result will still be a warmongering globalist SOB.

    Gingrich’s voice? He can’t even pronounce ‘Ronald Reagan’.

      Come next year, pray we all turn out & replace the rotten fruit of duplicity & division that has been put before us & make the Tree of Liberty the center piece at the White House diner table.

    • fliteking

      Hank- concentrate harder next time, maybe you can type something objective instead of just following the “Acorn” method of “How to Hate Conservatives” .

  • TheThinMan

    this was, strangely, the best, most thought out breakdown of the candidates as they stand today. I applaud the article – it is perfect. and out of it we get a lot of the truth – Rick Santorum is head and heels the best of the Candidates – but hasn’t gotten the traction he needs. Every day, I lean more and more to him as a WINNER, he has the ability and the leadership – just not the charisma of an empty suit like Romney nor the fire of Gingrich. I think I’ll vote for Frankenstein.

    • El Lobo Solo

      Not too familiar with Penn. State VIP’s, but will look more into Santorium. Believe he was Senator a few years back. Newt & Romney seem to be consuming all the oxygen with Cain out of the way now.

    • Mfinity

      OR for Frankenstein’s creation…
      The Liberal media will destroy (like Cain) or dismiss (like Santorum) the candidates they feel most threaten their (DAMOCAN’T) candidate.

      Can the Conservative think-tank decide upon a REAL option yet, or no? Can we Conservatives do something that will benefit our COUNTRY, instead of the selfish interests of a FEW???



    • El Lobo Solo

      Right Mfinity:
      I fear the plate of candidates are being chosen for the people by someone or group of someones before the voter even gets to select from the menu on election day.

    • daves

      Are you kidding? Herman Cain would have been a dream candidate for us liberals.

      It was definitely Conservatives that took him out.

      Either way, President Obama still has four chances to win: Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, and Newt Gingrich.

    • El Lobo Solo

      A year out from the election of 1980, the Dems were saying, Ronald Reagan!
      We would love to run against that Hollywood Cowboy.

  • Ann Wilson Kinglsey

    Ron Paul is the only exceptional candidate who is running for president. He has the character, fiscal sense, and definitely the correct understanding of foreign policy. The idea that the U.S. has to be the world aggressor and policeman is insane. We do not need to expand the military; we “do” need to upgrade our weapons and continue research to augment our offensive and defensive capability.

    In the name of taking the risk out of international corporate business, the American people have paid – and paid – and paid. There is never going to be a peaceful world when there is socialism/communism in so many countries. A socialist economy does not produce even an adequate GDP, and much of the world is now in the depths of socialism, so the world is continuing toward more starvation and political unrest. The American people want out of the corporatization game. We do not want the New World Order. That is why we like Ron Paul’s foreign policy. There is nothing scary about his foreign policy: His foreign policy is a friend to the American people. We the people want big government down-sized and out of our hair; we want the police state ended, not augmented. Those are the things Ron Paul stands for and always has stood for. We want a president who is not a characterless, flip-flopping, fast talking, slick looking incompetent. Our country needs a rational president with flawless logic, and that happens to be Ron Paul. He is the most brilliant candidate on the track, and he is the best qualified in every respect.

    • Mfinity

      True though it may be that Paul has not “wavered” (supposedly), his Foreign Policy IS somewhat lacking.

      Theodore Roosevelt sent the United States Navy around the world, the Great White Fleet! Since that time the U.S. has not been shy about being the “strong friend” that will stand up for what is right. It was the supposed failure of Vietnam that changed the mindset of many Americans to the “let’s not provoke” mindset.

      FACT: Vietnam never attacked U.S. Soil.
      North Korea has yet to attack U.S. Soil.
      Germany has yet to attack U.S. Soil.
      Japan hasn’t laid a finger on U.S. Soil since Pearl Harbor.
      CUBA has never attacked U.S. Soil.
      Bosnia and Croatia have yet to attack U.S. Soil.
      IRAQ has yet to attack U.S. Soil.
      LIBYA has yet to attack U.S. Soil.

      Lesson learned: The only attacks on U.S. that HAVE happened were all result of Presidents that were Foreign Policy incompetent!
      And now our current CHUMP-in-Chief would kill all foreign leaders in Muslim nations to allow the influx of the Muslim Brotherhood and their Regimes.

      “Bring ’em all home” and you better build an impermeable bubble for this Land.

      I say, “Let’s launch again the GREAT WHITE FLEET!”
      Show the World the U.S.A. does NOT Cower!


    • Hank is back

      So lets just attack everyone so no one ever attacks us. I am sure we can afford that. We are morally superior not just if we happen to attack when there appears to be a threat, but BECAUSE we attack to prevent a threat from ever arising. Brilliant!

      Theodore Roosevelt was a progressive anti-capitalist elitist. So are most of the rest of your heroes, no doubt.

  • kenneth

    The author has captured the Republicans’ dilemma perfectly. Not one of the candidates currently running is ideal. Instead, there are strengths and weaknesses in each of them, and I am still “up in the air” as to which I prefer. In the final analysis, I will probably vote for Romney, not because I particularly like him best, but because I think he has the best chance to RETIRE OBAMA.

  • Co-opted Confederate

    Never again should the American voters(Conservative ones especially) have to choose between the lesser of two evils.I t is not good going to the poles as hansekl and grettle.following a trail of crumbs left by the elitist of both parties. The rPublicans always seem to wait till the last minute to polish their marbles. . Republicans rarely if ever throw crumbs to any one who is not a “staunch party supporter and a GOP poster child conservative clone. millions of first time voters even though they may Dispise Obama will vote for him simple because there aren’t enough Rebublican crumbs to follow. ROnald regan was the last Republican candidate that gave tit for tat on every issue , no back pedelling, not feints no missed parries, no quarter given. and he was and has been respected.for that and will go down in History as one of the all time good guys. He supported the Constitution, he defended the Constitution he upheld the Constitution. and so fsar the only one to even closely have a grip on the Constitution are Ron Paul and Sasntorum.. I would not trust the second amendment to Newt, or any one except Ron Paul.Nor the first the fourth , 5th t5nth or any of them . Why Because non of the candidate except ron Paul Honors his oath of office . The RNC should Use how well a candidate adhered to the oath they swore to. SO far ron Paul is the only one who has kept his oath of office intact and operational since day one. Do the research look at what they voted for in the legislature of their stat or house of congress or state caspitol. If a casndidate does not , has not lived up to his oath of office 100% he or she should jerk their hat out of the race faster than the speed of light Cause he gonna loose.if he don’t.Ya’ll really need to challeng Obama onthe stadfastness of his oath keeping. other wise the liberal socialists and morally deficient thugs will trounce any candidate that dares to challenge his emminence in chief BHO.

  • Adrian Vance

    I think you mean “overestimated,” but we understand and you are right with your concerns. The RINO establishment is determined to have someone on whom they can depend to continue the corruption that is now Washington, DC. They want Obama or Romney. It is just that simple.

  • rory

    Face It. Any of the GOP candidates would be a breath of fresh air. But, R. Santorum or M. Bachman would turn this country and therefore the world around. It is just that MS Media hates godly people who won’t promote decadence and deviant behavior. That’s all there is to it. MSM is cheer leading the destruction of America to promote getting high and a greater variety of orgasms. Just as ‘gay marriage is not about long term commitment as much is it is about recruiting through ‘normalizing’ in the eyes of children. I rest my case. Peace.

    • Texas Patriot

      Well said, rory. I totally agree.

    • daves

      Michele Bachmann says that if she’s elected, she’ll ban pornography. We have multiple wars, skyrocketing debts, a recession, unemployment . . . Yeah, let’s ban pornography

    • El Lobo Solo

      Maybe she just wants to breakup the monoply that Larry Flynnt has on the market, besides, everyone knows that porn is always kept in the sock drawer.

    • fliteking

      Ahh, short-sheeting Bachmann.

      Maybe if you review some of her platform you’d conclude porn would be a back burner issue when weighed against the bigger issues.

    • daves

      Newt Gingrich wants to repeal child labor laws. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the man that we need to lead us into the 18th century.

    WHO’S NEWT?:

    … and, most recently, he has proposed giving 30 MILLION Illegal aliens amnesty as long as they pay a small fine and can “speak English” — thus opening the door to ANOTHER 100 MIILLION, or more, family members! Good Bye America.

    “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Whether it’s flip-flopping on TARP, supporting the individual mandate that served as a model for “ObamaCare,” joining with Nancy Pelosi in support of the global-warming crowd’s radical agenda, or making millions off of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as they helped destroy our economy, Newt Gingrich is trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
    He’s what is called a “counterfeit conservative.”
    Here’s an ad so you can hear Newt in his own words explaining his record of supporting liberal policies:

    Another Big Surprise About Gingrich on Gun Rights & The Second Amendment:

    Gingrich Explains His Support for Individual Health Mandate

    From the Glenn Beck program 12/6/11:

    GINGRICH: I am for people, individuals, exactly like automobile insurance, individuals having health insurance and being required to have health insurance, and I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals on a sliding scale a government subsidy so it will ensure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.

    President Obama on the individual healthcare mandate, August 2011: “(Obamacare) should not be controversial… the individual mandate’s important… It’s just like your car insurance…”

    Gingrich Supported Rockefeller Over Goldwater

    Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign was arguably the most important in the history of the American conservative movement, leading to the “Reagan Revolution” in 1980 and it continued to have a significant influence on the Right well beyond that particular election. Where was Newt Gingrich in this fight? Supporting Nelson Rockefeller:

    The “Principled Leadership” of Newt Gingrich

    “I am not inclined to be a supporter of Newt Gingrich’s having served under him for four years and experienced his leadership. Because I found it lacking often times. There’s all kind of leaders, leaders that instill confidence and leaders that are somewhat abrupt, leaders that have one standard for the people that they are leading and a different standard for themselves. I will have difficulty supporting him for president of the United States.” — Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)

    “We had to push Newt because he wanted to cave in… Those of us who told Newt, ‘If you don’t fight for a balanced budget and don’t fight for these tax cuts and don’t fight for the cuts in committee chairmanships, etc., etc., that we promised we were going to do, we are going to kick you out’ — those 10 or 15 or so, every one of them — Tom Coburn, Matt Salmon running again in Arizona, all of them. They may not be saying it publicly, but privately they’re sending me e-mails every day going, … ‘How many times does Newt have to teach these people he’s bad for the conservative movement?’–MSNBC host and former U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough, part of the “Republican Revolution” of 1994

    Via the The American Spectator’s Quin Hillyer:

    Former American Conservative Union Chairman Mickey Edwards was even blunter:

    “I’ve known Newt now for thirty years almost,” says former congressman Mickey Edwards. “But I wouldn’t be able to describe what his real principles are. I never felt that he had any sort of a real compass about what he believed except for the pursuit of power.”

    The Sr. Administrator of HermanCainForums has soundly rejected Newt Gingrich & endorsed Ron Paul. In a Posting on the site he stated,

    Now that Herman Cain has dropped out of the race my new candidate is….. Congressman Ron Paul. Ron Paul was the only candidate that actually had remorse for how the media treated Herman Cain and the alleged affairs, I will always thank him for showing respect in that nature, with that said. I had always liked a lot of what Ron Paul advocates, I don’t agree with him on everything but probably 90%. I am going to encourage all Ron Paul supporters to come here and openly support Ron Paul for he is now my new official candidate for President. I was asked to support Newt Gingrich, there is no possibly way I could every endorse Newt Gingrich, how the republican party is supporting Gingrich I have no idea. While Newt has had documented multiple affairs with women Herman Cain’s campaign was destroyed by accusations yet Gingrich is at the top of the polls? What the hell is wrong with the republican party./

    Ron Paul Campaign Rejects Trump Iowa Debate

    Trump’s participation will contribute to circus-like atmosphere and is odd considering his slight to RPI

    ANKENY, Iowa – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign released the following statement concerning the selection of Donald Trump as moderator for the December 27th Republican debate to be held in Iowa. Below please find comments from Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton:

    “The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee rejects the selection of Donald Trump as moderator for the Republican presidential debate to be held on December 27th in Iowa.

    “We have conferred with our Iowa campaign chairman Drew Ivers and vice-chairmen David Fischer and A.J. Spiker who are all RPI State Central Committee Members, and they concur with this decision.

    “The selection of a reality television personality to host a presidential debate that voters nationwide will be watching is beneath the office of the Presidency and flies in the face of that office’s history and dignity. Mr. Trump’s participation as moderator will distract from questions and answers concerning important issues such as the national economy, crushing federal government debt, the role of the federal government, foreign policy, and the like. To be sure, Mr. Trump’s participation will contribute to an unwanted circus-like atmosphere.

    “Mr. Trump’s selection is also wildly inappropriate because of his record of toying with the serious decision of whether to compete for our nation’s highest office, a decision he appeared to make frivolously. The short-lived elevation of Mr. Trump’s stature as a candidate put him on the radar of many organizations and we recall that last spring he was invited to keynote the Republican Party of Iowa’s annual Reagan Dinner, yet at the last minute he left RPI holding the bag by canceling. In turn, RPI canceled its biggest fundraising gala of the year and suffered embarrassment and in addition RPI was required to engage in refunding measures. Our candidate will not even consider participating in the late-December debate until Mr. Trump publicly apologizes to Iowa party leaders and rectifies in full the situation.
    “Therefore our candidate Ron Paul, the champion of the Constitution, has advised he will not attend.

    Ron Paul: Reality Check!

    Why Tea Party Voters Are Returning to Ron Paul:

    And Even More Reasons:

    Ron Paul’s Mainstream Foreign Policy:

  • FlaJim

    The problem most GOP voters face is that we have principles and long memories. All Dems seem to be concerned with is that there’s a ‘D’ following the candidate’s name. Scruples and priciples are immaterial. In addition, the GOP high honchos seem totally out of touch with their base while the Dem machine caters to its own.

    Using the process of elimination, both Romney and Huntsman seem to have no real core principles. Paul is sound on fiscal policy — period. His foreign and other domestic policy is delusional. Santorum may be a conservative at heart but is too tied to the GOP establishment. Perry has been unable to properly enunciate why he’s running. Unfortunately for Michelle Bachmann, she’s run out of time to get any wind back in her sails again.

    That leaves Gingrich. He’s not perfect but keep in mind that one of our most serious challenges is getting our fiscal house in order and he’s the only speaker in modern times to balance the budget. As well, he has a firm grasp on foreign policy issues and passes the litmus tests on most domestic issues.

    • Lee

      Funny stuff coming from a Republican. Your myopia is acting up.

    • Chris Ikeri

      Well articulated FlaJim! Go Newt Go!!!

  • Al

    Paul is not delusional – he’s the only one who realizes that we jeopardize our economic security by outspending any other nation by 10x in military spending. Why do we continue to spend trillions on this military welfare to countries who can afford to defend themselves?

  • Ellis O’Tuel

    Captures the quandry many voters like myself feel trapped in. ANY of the candidates is preferrable to what we have in the White House at present. I’ll carry the water for whoever is the nominee.

      Or O’Towel boy, maybe?

    • fliteking

      Hank has not a single redeeming defect.

  • am2sweet

    It’s sad that we don’t have anyone on the Republican side that is mean enough to take down Obama. I say that because the one or two that maybe could if luck is with them would be putting in a white Obama. It seems that only once in a great while does true presidental material come along that can stamp out the competition. I think this article was a good one in pointing out the faults of each candidate.

  • Lee

    Herman Cain: Chauvinistic sexual predator (you say bull headed, I say pig headed
    to-MAY-toe to-MAH-toe)

    Newt Gingrich: Immoral, two timing, special interest groupie(Gordon Gecko in a fat suit)

    Jon Huntsman: Fence-walking invisible man

    Mitt Romney: One dimensional business wonk

    Rick Perry: Texas swagger filled sack of idiotic cow dung

    Ron Paul: Modern day medicine man sans face make-up and chanting. (Be afraid, be very afraid)

    Rick Santorum: Political plagiarist

    Michele Bachman: A complete and utter fool who thinks she’s running for student body president.

    Yes, indeedy. It appears that you Grand Obstructionist Party members do have a dilemma. Might as well start planning for 2016.

    • El Lobo Solo

      I think you give your man in the White House more credit than he deserves.

      Has anybody seen his college gpa’s and/or thesis paper? No, they are all sealed. Talk about being a Wonk as you alluded to Newt. Obama is the definition of Wonk. What real world economic/business/finance experience did he bring to the table. Saul Alinsky acolyte & Community Orgasismizer (Orgasmic about taking from producers & giving to non-producers)
      At least Perry had the honesty to release his records for Texas A&M. Bachmman, a Federal Tax attorney prior to being elected to Congress. Romney, somebody with some real business experience. Gingrich, a History Prof. “””that should be a real plus to you academic Libs””” prior to going to Congress. Herman Cain, a Black man who dares to leave the Democratic plantation & therefore marked to be a “non-person”.
      Your man has no record of acheivement prior to otaining the White House who had big boost from his puppet master, George Soros.

      ie: As an Illinois state senator, he was a back bencher with no reputation for introducing any significant initiatives or important bills. As a US Senator, ditto above & often voted to abstain to avoid any hint of controversy. His history of winning elections has been one of suppressing his own record & fabricating stories of himself & exposing harmful or private court records of his Dem primary and/or Republican opponents.

      I’ll take the list of GOP candidates above & pass up voting for mediocrity like we did in 2008.

      Comments too hot to handle.
      Caught by the moderator again.

      Haha. My “…man in the White House”? Is that Plantation-speak from the Far Right? I never mentioned President Obama. You did. I only called your party “obstructionist” which you are. Your response is a typical thin skinned Far Right excuse for a weak(not even mediocre)GOP candidate pool to choose from. It also typifies the threadbare GOP tactic of blaming everything on President Obama…now you’re even blaming your sub-par field of candidates on him, too? Seriously? Wow. In that case, you don’t deserve a decent candidate.

    • El Lobo Solo

      Voices from the OWS mobs.

    • Lee

      Haha! Yours or mine? The OWS Movement was never my horse in the race. Still, your contempt for movements less coherent and organized than the Almighty Tea Party is barely concealed. You must really like thumbing through old Nazi party pamphlets.

    • El Lobo Solo

      @ Lee:
      Stop talking in vagueries!
      You are not T Party, not OWS, you implied above that Obama was not your man in the White House after I constrasted him with the GOP field by making a summation of his career. So who is your prefered candidate???

    • El Lobo Solo

      PS Lee:
      I did look at/study some archieval Nazi material some years back while taking a course in 20th European History.
      My impression, the trouble with National Socialism, is SOCIALISM.

    • Lee

      Oh, to be sure, my candidate most certainly is President Obama. It’s just that your “contrasting of the candidates” also insinuated that I owned him and that he was in my pocket. Not so. That may be what YOU desire in a candidate(which is why narrow minded folks like you are the bane of this country’s existence), and in which case, I can understand why you’re so defensive of your field of candidates. Also, it’s so hard seriously engaging in constructive discussion with someone who has a problem with reading comprehension. I never said Newt was a “wonk”, I said Romney was. Also, your spelling is suspect. Vagueries? Prefered? Santorium?(or was that humor? lol) Acheivement? Flynnt? Monoply? Bachmman? (funny stuff, you talking about the President’s grades) One or two typos I can understand, but we academic Libs prefer to engage those who can, well, I don’t know how to say this without hurting your feelings, spell. As for not choosing to side with the Tea Party or the OWS movements, last time I checked, an individual could back whatever movement suited that individual, or not back any of them. Or do you and your um, movement, want to legislate that, too?

    • Lee

      Oh, and yes, I know I spelled Bachmann with only one “n” in my first post, but the author did, too. We academic Libs refer to those as “typos”.

    • El Lobo Solo

      More erudite psycho-babble & yes, you can join whatever group you want or not chose to join just come out & say what that group is.

      PS: Not here for a spelling bee.

    • Lee

      Erudite psycho-babble? lol. Friend, if you can’t handle it in it’s initial form, just say so and I’ll “dumb it down” for you so can digest it more easily. I can only imagine how difficult it is to digest, that which is difficult to understand. The right group? You mean the “correct” group? Sure, the one that’s a lock for 2012…Group Obama. Get used to it. Oh, not here for a spelling bee? No kidding. It’s “choose”, not “chose”. Thanks for playing.

    • El Lobo Solo

      @ Lee:

      Your friend & right hand man to Obama, Eric Holder soon to be impeached.
      An omen of good things to come. LOL

      Have fed the Troll to much already, off to the Huff & Puff Post to mix it up at Troll Central.


    • Lee

      Hahaha. It’s called “beating a hasty retreat” after being out pointed. And again, with the trademarked right wing shifting of the argument when you do get out pointed. The Fast & Furious debacle is egregious, but I, like Rep. Ted Poe, agree that any kind of impeachment proceedings should wait until they get to the bottom of what actually happened. If they find out that the people under him were at fault, impeachment proceedings shouldn’t be necessary because he should resign…after firing all under him who are responsible.

      However, I suspect that you’re a lot more worked up about Holder’s vow to protect the voting rights of minorities than you are about who allowed firearms to fall into the hands of drug cartels. After all(getting back to the subject of this article, Homer), with your field of candidates, your party is going to need more than a little Florida “hanging chad” magic to unseat the President.

      @ Lee Dec 12, 2011

      Didn’t realize this thread was still around.
      Out pointed? HaHa.
      My points were just bigger.

    • fliteking

      Lee – you FAILED to call anyone a Racist. Maybe you should edit your post.

      Just trying to keep you out of hot water back at the ACORN office.

    • Lee

      There’s that thin-skinned GOP mentality again…this time with an attempt at misdirectional preemption. Sorry, but you said it, not me. But, if the shoe fits…

    • El Lobo Solo

      If the shoe fits, it must not belong to Imelda Marcos.

    • Lee

      …and yet, that shoe was fitted and supported by the Reagan administration. So sorry.

  • Scott Johnson

    Reading thru the comments, one thing strikes me. Those folks that appear hell-bent on destroying ANY candidate other than Romney sure like to use the liberal spittle-flinging directive of the all-caps FACT. Let’s face facts, shall we? No matter who runs the poll, the generic candidate beats Obama hands down. America, prepare thyself for 12 to 16 years of snarky bitchitude from the left…..that is all they have left.

    • Lee

      …and speaking of snarky.

  • Chris Ikeri

    “Doctor Soros, what shall you name him?” Barack Hussein Obama, period!
