Political Circus: GOPer sick of 'nuts'

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.

Sometimes you (don't) feel like a nut

The Denver Post reports that Colorado GOP Chairman Dick Wadhams unexpectedly dropped his re-election bid, noting that the GOP's chances in 2012 could be "severely undermined" by a conservative-only based approach.

    Thats what happens when your party embraces the lunatic fringe just to get votes, and win elections. McCain, is responsible for hoisting Palin up to national status. Bush, the ogiginal tin foil hat lined neo-nut filled all appointed offices with people who were qualified to run concession stands at county fairs. The GOP, should apologize to all zoo's in the world for defaming the noble elephant, using its image as their mascot. Your party is not called retardlicans for nothing. You go to bed with dogs, dont complain when you awake with fleas.

    It is hilarious! When someone like Wadhams realize that The Tea Party has a "bullseye" (can I say that?) painted on them and they know they're about to be voted out......all the sudden they become "concerned" that the Republican Party is becoming too conservative!
    News Flash for All The SPINNERS; Conservatism is the "IN" word.....get ready, the majority of "Voting" Americans are conservative minded and will not allow this Regieme go uncontested! Obambi wiill NEVER be able to get his entitlement receipients to vote as they did in 2010.

    I agree with Wadhams. Day after day, we see the inability of the right wing nuts to comprehend facts, and are subjected to their fear, hate, and lack of understanding. I am seldom amused by their 8th grade mentality.

    You know, I read stories, like on the Cafferty file a few days ago, where Americans think our President is the most polarizing figure ever. And then I read stories like this that tell a completely different story. From my 50 plus years on this earth, I have to say it out loud. I never thought I would see more polarization coming from one of only 2 parties, in our two party system, when talking about Republicans. It's gotten to the point where I'm wondering when that party is going to be reclassified as a hate group. They're attacking minorities, and all people of color. They're terrorizing women, focusing specifically on their reproductive parts. They treat the poor as something you should scrape off the bottom of your shoes. They profess to care for old people (like in Death Panels), yet want to cut programs that keep them alive, and leave them on their own at 65 to find their own insurance. Are you kidding me? I'm just wondering when we're going to come out of this stupor we appear to be in and say ENOUGH already!

    In a previous post in regard to Jim Webb, the RIGHT had a blast with their "GOOD RIDANCE REMARKS" (even though one blogger spelled "riddens" wrong)! Now what will be said about this RepubliCAN'T????

    Oh, they will say the SAME because they think they are the majority
    and they truly believe the FAR-RIGHT is where you ought to be....NOT!!!
    The GOP is dying; their pants are breaking at the seams
    The dinosaurs are going extinct and they’re losing their dreams
    Better move to the MIDDLE because only the bipartisan will SURVIVE –
    And the TP/Far Right critters and their demands will be left behind!!!

    Let's support our current leader, President Obama, as he continues to MOVE AMERICA FORWARD with building "speed rails" as one of the first step towards WTF!!
