    Was there a camera in the vicinity when he said that? LOL McCain is a complete idiot who's only goal is to get Air time. I know there are supporters here but I'm sorry he's a complete Rino

    I'm not sure that you'll ever see a separate "Tea Party" on the ballot. I do think that what you'll see is the Tea Party choosing which Republican Candidates they Will and Will Not support, and to a certain degree that is going to give them a large amount of clout inside the party.

    I'm sure that the primaries will be lively.

    However, when the 2012 election happens in November, please don't think for a second that any GOP voter will vote for Barry. Its a nice "strawman", a straw to grasp, but its more wishful thinking than voting plausibility.

    I think a true hard core Conservative Party is on the horizon.

    What I would prefer is to see a christian Conservative Party split off. So we Fiscal Conservatives who just want the government off our backs don't have to be in bed with those wackos :)

    Hope so. It will take tough love to get the fiscal house in order. Obama talked a good game as a candidate, but while in office he let the rich off the hook for Clinton era tax rates?!

    The national Debt increase just can't be ignored. SS & Medicare need to be saved. Sen. Reid says "what problem"??

    I hope a really hard core conservative gets in, and moves more US factories to China?! Gets GE to pay zero tax??

    Barry had his chance. We'll see how the economy and unemployment, and the price of gas is 11/2012.

    since palin onlly has about 12% of the republican vote I have the distinct impression that they are trying to add enough candidates to divide the rest of the vote until palins 12% becomes the winner

    Can you imagine Sarah Palin winning the election....

    Chris Mathews will go absolutely bat shit on camera.
    The spit flying out of Ed Schultz's face will be a riot.
    Rachel Maddow won't be able to sit in her seat she will be so excited below the waist.
    They will have to put Lawrence ODonnel in a straight jacket....
