We NEED the teabaggers to splinter off the traditional GPO, as well as the rick santorum types to form their own little dipsy-doodle party...the three splinter groups will water down their votes to the point that separated, they couldn't field a winner in a million years. While the GOP falls apart, the united Democratic party will leave these three poor ol' parties scratching their heads as the freight train rolls right through them...splinter on, GOP...it's fun to watch you implode!!

Prediction: The GOP "overhaul" will consist of 2 splinter groups leaving the "traditional" GOP to form minor parties...the teabaggers will field their own agenda and candidates, as will the religious/santorum-like faction. What does this do for the political landscape in 2016, should this happen within the next 4 years? You can bet united Democrats will sweep elections throughout the US!! These 3 groups will eat each other alive, while a unified Democratic party keeps working for ALL Americans.

IF THE GOP CONTINUES TO BE THE PARTY OF "NO" THERE WILL NOT BE A GOP IN CONGRESS AFTER THE 2014 MID TERM ELECTIONS. NOW DELET THIS MODERATOR.

The GOP lost its bid for the white House and several of the t-party elected congressman and senators form 2010 because of the T-Party.

WHAT IS YOUR POV ON THE TEXAS REPUBLICANS MAKING ALL TEXANS PAY FOR THE CHOICE OF TEXAS CORPORATIONS AND INDUSTRIES TO VIOLATE THE LAWS?

Texas looks to motorists to cover industry's pollution bill By Matthew Tresaugue | November 9, 2012 | Updated: November 9, 2012 11:13pm The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is asking the federal government for permission to waive fines for the region's 260 chemical plants, oil refineries and other large facilities.The commission argues that it should not have to collect those fines because it already is raising money for smog-fighting programs through vehicle inspection fees and sale ta

We can only pray you don't drive a car.

glad to see that Charles is ok with paying higher vehicle inspection fees to cover the fines that these private companies owe for violating the law. But I bet charles would cry the loudest if he were told that his property taxes were going up just $1.00 for education.

THERE YOU HAVE IT TEXAS REPUBLICANS ARE RAISING OUR TAXES AND FEES TO PAY FOR CORPORATIONS AND INDUSTRIES VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW INSTEAD OF HAVING THE LAW VIOLATOR PAY.
THANKS FOR RAISING MY TAXES REPUBLICANS WILL YOU NOW MAKE THESE SAME LAW BREAKERS LOWER MY BILL AND GAS PRICES?

Mit Romney, is a RINO republican and never represented the party. The founder of Romneycare a vague campaign of "Closing loopholes", and no specifics made him unelectable Media, both controlled and defined the election conversation, eliminating the true fiscal conservative. Now media says the party should include hispanics through a military pathway to citizenship. This at the same time as we prepare to go to war with Iran. Media controlled selections, the agenda reveals democracy to be a sham.

All of you...bilge/sewer water. Look at the three clowns in the picture...you all are so quick to blather on about President Obama, his administration, his everything...but you know what...no one ever, EVER sees any of you write about the miserable record your teavangelical repubs in the House have had these past 3 1/2 years...get off the president and own every failure your darlings in Congress have done to the country...come on, folks...Congress/Senate make final decisions, NOT the Pres.

Maybe they should pour lighter fluid on themselves and light -up just like you little african american friend in louisianna who tried to blame the KKK and you supported.

chuck, you are one sick individual...but maybe you're just an old fool who gets a kick out of posting the most outlandish, crazy, and bazaar things just to get someone else looney angry just like yourself. Poor guy...you're not even making much sense anymore...guess racists are really ticked that a gentleman, diplomat, honest and concerned American (who happens to be Black) was re-elected, so much so that you and all your fellow nut cases are near stroke level these days. Take care, chuck!

I hate to see the GOP beating itself up.
The election was NOT a landslide/mandate. We had a very admirable guy.

. There were onlya few % difference.Taxes were a big part of this...if you pay zero taxes, why WOULD you be interested in tax rates,who pays, etc???YOU PAY NONE anyway !!

Obama was never called on his outright lies( Google this). Thus they look like truths" Tell a lie often enuf & it becomes the truth" Hitler

Much of the Obama vote was" Christains, Catholics," Go after them.!!

Just listened to Obama's speech. One good thing I can say, He sure helped the biomass fuel industry with all the raw material he just put out. Yeah, their gonna need a dump truck where he was at.

One thing that went wrong is that they see the TEA party movement as a thorn in their side keeping the from being psuedo Democrats instead of embacing them as the backbone that they are of the GOP.
