Not much going on there.
Both camps are too quiet.
No noize from Palin...since the AZ killing....

Not much saber waving from the prospectives...

I think the GOP, Tea Party, and Koch brothers and related "Barrons" have more power where they sit, and with heckler power, state seats, a chokehold on the prez, and no real changes they can make without destabilizing the economy with layoffs, job market changes/eliminations,social security alterations, immigration, tax increases, ect, let alone the lack of desire to step up to the plate during a middle east wide revolution.


Too many bad game changers going on.
And impossible to take back america without hurting the economy at this time, and probably for the next 10 years, if not more.

I think they dont really want the seat.


What say you?

Apparently... she rendered this statement obsolete.

This is all you need to read.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – America is on a "road to ruin" because of misguided policies in Washington and needs to get back in step with the values of Ronald Reagan, Sarah Palin said at an event honoring the former president's legacy.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee delivered a stinging critique of Washington during her speech Friday, part of the national celebration marking the centennial of Reagan's birth on Feb. 6.

Revisiting themes familiar from her 2008 campaign, she said the nation was being shackled by high debt and taxes, dense government regulation and rising spending, often for programs that don't work. She said a rush toward green energy was overlooking the nation's oil and natural gas reserves, a choice that will cost jobs and drive up pump prices.

She blamed Washington leaders — an apparent reference to the Obama administration — for doing "everything in their power to stymie responsible domestic drilling."

"This is dangerous. This is insane," she said. "This is not the road to national greatness, it is the road to ruin."

She alluded to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address last month, saying it amounted to a statement that "the era of big government is here to stay."

Palin was asked to talk about Reagan's 1964 speech, "A Time for Choosing," which he gave on behalf of then-Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater. In it, he talks at length about the dangers of high taxes and encroaching big government, as well as the necessity of strong national security.

She said the stark choices the nation faces are not unlike those Reagan talked of in the 1960s, only the economy of today is worse, from home foreclosures to high unemployment.

She said Reagan saw the danger of President Lyndon Johnson's Great Society programs, and "he refused to sit down and be silent as our liberties were eroded by an out of control, centralized government that overtaxed and overreached in utter disregard of constitutional limits."

"We could choose one direction or the other, socialism or freedom and free markets," Palin said.

Palin received a roaring ovation,
I so enjoy the left embracing Ronald Reagen to make their point.

Obama will be tossed out like last week's chicken. In case you missed it, the economy is already **** and getting worse. Real unemployment hovering in the 20% range, $100 billion in new debt every month, the only people buying treasury bonds on a significant level is the Fed, multiple states on the road to bankruptcy, inflation is on the rise, etc.

Sure, he isn't responsible for all the problems, but he hasn't done anything but hurt the economy since he has been president. The people will toss him..

I agree with the SOTN, but I still think they dont want the helm and will fake a run.
They have more power without the risk of fallout where they are now.
They have no real answers or solutions that wont harm the economy at this time.

And they would rather have Obo in charge with a leash than Palin....

Depends. If the country is improving, they'll compete and be the guy in charge when the upswing continues. If it is not improving, they'll throw another McCain to the meat grinder and blame the Dems for the lack of improvement for another 4 years.

It's all BS politics. Both sides do it. Example: Dukakis.

I think the forgotten dynamic of the next election is the impact of redistricting. Electoral votes follow those House seats, and a significant number of electoral votes will move from blue leaning states to red leaning states. Since all electoral votes from a state go to one candidate in most cases, a swing of a few votes in a state can swing many electoral votes. This means that if everything stayed the same as 2008 in terms of voter numbers, Obama could lose the election. It's going to be interesting to se some expert evaluations of the state-by-state results of redistricting once it is completed.

I fully expect the GOP to offer up a Romney or Huckabee as a sacrifice.. but I think whoever runs, will win.
