Woulda coulda shoulda

We are still counting the cost of the Great Mistake, as he pushes hard on the pedal as the debt cliff approaches.

From Linda, taken at the Lowe’s parking lot in Nashville, TN, a melancholy look back at what might have been:

it should have read Palin/McCain. What a wimp he was.

    The most non-wimp thing he did was select Sarah Palin as his running mate.

      Dittos. And I’ll bet, knowing McCain as I do, he’s regretted it ever since. Not only did she outshine him, but a lot of people have said she was the only reason they voted in ’08.

What a bitter remembrance. Not so much for the woulda/coulda but because the first half of that sticker was a roundhouse kick in the teeth to the GOP base, and the second half of that sticker was our hope that maybe the RNC sensed, albeit too late, what the base was really all about.

More bitter still to see that the RNC learned NOTHING in the last 4 years. It’s still about corporate cronyism.

    “More bitter still to see that the RNC learned NOTHING in the last 4 years. It’s still about corporate cronyism”

    That’s why the Establishment Republicans prefer Democrats rather than Tea Party candidates running as Republicans: Democrats will play ball whereas most Tea Party candidates really mean what they say about cutting spending and the size of government.

Oh, what coulda been…….

Somehow I imagine a McCain administration would have driven Sarah batty with frustration, given a Democratic Congress and McCain’s urge to “reach across the aisle” as often as possible.

And now, from the folks who gave us loser McCain, comes the sequel, starring that greatest flip flop man for all seasons; loser Romney

This action packed sequel will delight RINOs everywhere with Romneycare, Crony Capitalism, Automatic Minimum Wages Increases and most important … the status quo.
AND, as for you Conservatives? … well, you all know what you’ll get.

Professor, enjoying the Jethro Tull videos, they were a favorite way back when. The original Jethro Tull was an Irish agriculture activist. Because of the introduction plows whose blades cut deep into the soil. Tull was encouraging Irish farmers to grow their potatoes on flat ground instead of on furrows. Consequently, it allowed the potato fungus to spread more readily , and adding to the failure of the yields.

Even back then, they should have been aware of those damn community activist.

While at Jon Chelles this morning getting my weekly pedicure and unibrow separation, I overheard a theory of what the GOP establishment is up to that seemed crazy, and yet…

It went like this – the GOP establishment is doing its best to push Romney into the nomination because they know he’ll lose to Obama. They feel they can keep Obama’s worst in check with a GOP House majority and 40+ number in the Senate. Their overall plan, according to the theory, is that they are clearing the field for a Marco Rubio run in 2016. Having lost to Obama, Romney will be off the menu and out of the way, and none of the other GOP potentials could beat Rubio in the primaries. Plus, Rubio will have had four additional years of maturation, vetting, and national organizing. The theory holds that the GOP establishment wants Rubio so badly because a two-term Rubio presidency would lock the sizable Hispanic bloc into the GOP for generations to come, similar to how the Af-Am bloc has voted en masse for the Democrats for decades, indeed, the Dems typically can’t win a national election without them.

Sounds crazy, but I’m not at all convinced the GOP establishment meets the clinical definition of sanity anymore, so…
