Re: Akin
Actually, it puts him in a tough spot since his new BFF, Ryan, co-sponsored a 'personhood' bill in 2009. With Akin. And a bunch of other teabaggers favorites.
Even Mississippi rejected persons recognized in the womb!
I can't believe the Republican plank covering (gutting?) abortion rights is going to endear the independent women voters.

C'mon, Dr. A. Read this stuff & be amazed at what the right -wingnuts will swallow.
Of course Obama wants to flood Muslims to the USA - he married one!

Re: Inside the Home of the Private Romney Family
OK - so the family's ski house was folksy & warm. Oh, & it had a picture of Jesus. It's obvious this wasn't a home for the Romney clan, full time.
By the time Mittens & his brood bought this place the kids were grown & having families of their own. Selling it 10 years later w/ contents was an easy out, not a sacrifice.
He screwed the pooch on foreign policy this week. Nice background story to try & humanize him, but he's still a clueless millionaire as far as regular Americans are concerned.

Nope, you're certainly not the only one.

If Obama weren't black, it'd be about something else since he's the Democrat.
If it had been Hillary elected, we'd have been inundated w/ mysogynistic insanity about another Clinton in the White House. If it had been Edwards, well, we know what would've permiated the brains of conservatives then. If it had been Richardson, then the 'brown skin' stuff would just be adjusted to fit his particular hue & origin.
The conservatives ruling the Republican party have had 'generic democrat' derangment syndrome since Bill Clinton was elected. Just gets hotter every year.

Some background on the 47% meme - the latest incarnation came about as a response to the 99% meme.

Re: Time for a change...
Sometimes Coyotes just howl at the moon for no apparent reason. They tend to stir up the domestic dogs up here in the mountains, but we all settle down pretty quickly and get about our general business without having to shoot the howlers.

Re: Romney wants redistribute wealth too
Wisconsin's a swing state - I would find it fascinating to live in one of those areas.
What's your take on the ground, Theo? Will Obama win your electoral votes, & will it have some tug, down ticket? How's Tammy in your book?

Summary
When Obama wins re-election, conservative heads will explode all over this country & the crack in the Republican Party will expand - maybe to the breaking point.
If the monied Republicans are smart, they'll keep funding Faux News & the affiliated pundits that control talk radio. They should let the conservatives who've their exploded heads go off into the wilderness - even though I live near one of those enclaves. They & the talkers like Hannity & Limbaugh will make plenty of money playing off another 4 years of Obama. Hell, I'd bet that Glenn Beck comes back to the regular TV viewers on some network out there.
The tea-baggers & company will have a dilemma on their hands. They don't have the clout & bucks to actually run the Republican Party machine, and yet they have enough nut-crazy members who think their 'true conservative' (a Randian?) would win the electoral vote & lead this country 'towards the gold".
I'll be watching what Ron Paul & son will be up to in about 18 months. That's a weather vane that should point to the Ryan-Randian path to 2016.
