    What have been the big applause lines in these debates? Well, a statement that the governor of Texas is responsible for killing 234 people on death row. Or that we favor torture. Or that we’re creating a fence on the Mexican border that electrocutes people when they try to cross it. Or when people show up at the emergency room at hospitals and they’re not insured don’t treat them. And that, I mean these are the big applause lines, people just hoop and holler when they hear all that.

    Instead of distancing himself from the republican party he claims to be embarrassed by, why doesn't Danforth start by calling out the extremists republicans in our own home state like Martin? Or Akin, who thinks that, "At the heart of Liberalism is a hatred for God."

    Senator Danforth Embarrassed by Own Republican Party

    He forgot, "Let him die".

    We are just looking at the Republican Party. What they are and what they truly believe. Even too extreme for someone like JD. I suspect "no".

    the party is just going to get smaller and smaller.

    They cant shake this fringe that now owns them.

    it very well could be the death of the party

    Danforth has always been one of these Old School Republicans who just wants the Democrats to like him.

    He even washed up Janet Reno's bloody bloomers after Waco.

    So, no, I don't take what he has to say seriously.

    No, it won't be the death of the party. They have been a great party in the past and once the loons that have taken it over are gone, it will be great again. I have no doubt. Some of America's greatest thinkers and doers have come from the Republican Party and not that long ago. But the leadership now are crazy. And the majority of the base has grown stale. They don't even believe their own bullshit. They just hate having a black president and feel the country has become too brown. They are just scared. It happens. We saw it coming.

    Old School Republicans. You round out my previous post perfectly. Thanks.

    TM both parties have lost their base... Both are full of people like you on both sides, endless hate towards the other party that oddly runs the country the same as the party they claim to hate.

    Republican governors are responsible for executions of condemned convicts? What kind of executions do lefties support? More than a million full term babies were stabbed in the back of the head in partial birth abortions. Should we be embarassed by democrats who support the horrific procedure that a liberal democrat senator once called "infanticide"? We just spent a couple of million taxpayer dollars killing an American citizen with a smart bomb without a trial. Was that OK because a democrat approved it? Bill Clinton authorized the execution of about 80 citizens in Waco without a trial and the left said it was their own damned fault. The federal government executed Tim McVaigh and it was fine by lefties because he deserved it. You almost gotta laugh at the hypocrisy.

    Flat Earth is old school....

    These Republicans are the ones that put up token resistance before going along with whatever the Democrats wanted to do anyway...

    Which is why no one actually misses them.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the right now see all ‘Old School’ repubs as RINOs. They need to rethink this or wind up being a true minority party.
