BLITZER'S BLOG: In GOP race, anything could happen

(CNN) – At this point eight years ago, in September 2003, several national polls showed Howard Dean and Wesley Clark were one and two in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

At this point four years ago, in September 2007, several national polls showed Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson were one and two in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

    "Emergency FEMA budgeted items have always been offset by other Federal budget cuts."

    Do you guys just make this stuff up whenever it's necessary? In other words, do you see something on TV that clicks in your head as "uh oh, that makes my side look bad," then maybe run around the house a little bit yelling at the top of your lungs while yanking on your hair and beating your hands against your head, then, once you've calmed down and returned to breathing normally again, sit down in front the TV or intertubes and say "whatever that was, it's really the compelte opposite that is the truth and I'm choosing right now to believe that instead"? Is that a fair approximation of how it works when, say, someone on TV tells starts stating facts that wreck your all the income, wealth and assets have been "trickling up" for several decades or that government spending actually is important to the economy and does help create jobs?

    That's a beautiful elephant pin. Wish the Teapublicans would give some of their money to their endangered namesakes
    instead of their teabag weasels.

    Don't worry cnn your rating numbers, again, will be loooooooooow.
    I rather watch grass grow than listen to these clowns still with no solutions just bashing the President and now each other. Who cares! I wouldn't vote for any of them if they walked on water. Sorry flake, visions don't count. Same goes for the tx secessionist since your prayers haven't brought you much needed rain.

  5. Dominican mama 4 Obama

    @ Obama blah blah- zzzzzzzzzz blah blah:
    We just want it PAID FOR!! I realize you don't pay for anything you get, but this is how it is supposed to work in the real world
    How would you know how things are supposed to work in the "real world" when you inhabit one of complete self-delusion and lack of facts, you can't even make up your mind which name to use when you blog?
    You're part of the same Idiots on Parade that took to the streets within a week of Obama gaining office to protest high taxes when all facts pointed to taxes being the lowest that they've been in th past 50 years.
    So please, go and cash your little blogging check at your local check cashing place or liquor store because you couldn't possibly have any money in the banks that you were so against bailing out.
    And one last thing: You all don't care about having things paid for because if you did you you would agree with YOUR President and take away the loopholes that your masters enjoy, and do away with the Bush tax-cuts that they've been screaming they DON'T need.
    The only thing you consitently care about is making sure that Obama is NOT re-elected. That's ALL you've cared about since January 20th, 2009. Tell yourself the truth at least, even if you won't be honest with anyone else.
