Ah, too much campaign cash to dump into Mindy's accounts, I get it.

yeah, Preliaiator, you got it allright, along with the rest of the right who got thumped by Obama campaign, of which I include Tim Bishop. Recognizing the terminally dead-end Teapartiers' takeover of the Repub Party, Repub leaders are blaming them for their stunning defeat. Repubs are saying they must become advocates for immigrant rights & put an end to the chauvinistic, often racist diatribes & invective against Latinos; that Repubs risk becoming even more irrelevant among the young (18 to 35) who favor gay rights to marriage & health care access for the underserved. The rampant misogyny of an aging, paternalistic while male party will become even more repugnant to the nation's middle class, not lessen even as the aging Euro male diminish in number. Sadly, there is from the shock jocks of the holier than thou right wing only denial in their rear guard effort to blame everything & everybody but their own rotting ideology of privilege & superiority of the status quo. Too bad you cannot face reality, even as you invite a weaker Repub Party and continue to peel off more Americans from the Repub side to the Dem side. So mucho gracias, mi amigo..

Wow, how long did it take you to clip and paste that or did you just find one article on the Huffpo that fit into your hate filled views. The only thing worse than a sore loser is a sore winner and you left wing fruit cakes are running to the bank with that. Your overly long diatribe is fine aside from one salient point; what if Obama and the democrats fail? What if his policies prove to be damaging to the country, to the economy, to those cherished entitlement programs? You make a very broad assumption that Obama is going to be wildly successful; don't. Historically most President's second terms are disappointments, don't get yourself lathered up into expecting Barack Obama to work any magic. Only two modern Presidents had successful second terms; Ronald Regan and Bill Clinton and trust me on this, Barack Obama is no where near the same caliber of those men. He could not hold their jock straps. So while you ramble on going over and over the MSNBC talking points in your head (where the echo is loudest) bear in mind that Democrats and the talking heads pontificated endlessly on the demise of the Republican Party after Obama's first win and look what happened; the 2010 mid-term elections. Don't just go counting your chickens yet; there are lots of things to come and you would be unwise to make arrogant presumptions. In the mean time, if I want to have some lighthearted fun with Dim Tim, our corrupt and morally bankrupt Congressman, I will.
