    I'm guessing getting back to core Conservative values includes hiring hookers? :lol:

    Voinovich is spot on, the GOP won't listen to him though.

    I said he was spot on here. :lol:

    Never said about elsewhere, though I never really seen the guy talk elsewhere to give my opinion on that.

    Then fuck you again. This little tirade was nothing more than a rant of prejuduce against those from the South. Last time I checked, southern states were a part of the Union and their elected officials no matter what party, have as much right to exert influence as any uppity elitist fucking yankee like Voinovich. This isn't anything more than a yankee pissed off because he wasn't born by God's grace to be southern.

    We can only hope that the GOP doesn't listen to him.

    Right Voinovich, we should get back to our true roots as a permanent minority party whose only true agenda is sopping up what ever spittle the dems don't get around to.

    Good thing you aren't running again dude you're another flaming political hack that just doesn't understand that winning national elections is about forming coalitions. Right now like it or not the only people available to the Republicans that have any hope of tipping the balance in the favor of your party is like it or not the South and its legions of social conservatives.

    I think there IS a significant difference in basic values between the Southerners and (certainly at least the ) North-easterners.

    We see it manifesting in election after election, after all.

    Denying it is silly.

    We even see it within the republican party, after all, and the democratic party, too.

    The so called moderate Republicans are almost all from the NE.

    The so-called bluedog Dems are almost all from the South and West.

    In some ways the war between the states has never ended.

    The shooting stopped, but the battle continues politically.

    President Carter(D)...Southerner, born Plains GA

    President Reagan(R)...Northerner, born Tampico IL

    President Bush Sr(R)...Northerner, born in Milton, MA

    President Clinton(D)...Southerner, born in Hope, AR

    President Bush Jr(R)...Northerner, born in New Haven CT

    President Obama(D)...Neither, born in Hawaii (or perhaps Kenya)

    So tell me again who has the Southern influence?

    This post is spot on.

    I have said for a long time, to many of the southerners - the Civil War has not ended.
