    Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    Look at the polls.

    Teabaggers are low information voters who want all the same services from the government as most Americans, but blame the deficit on welfare (a tiny sliver of federal spending).

    All 9 major Tea Party candidates got their **** ruined in the election this year.

    They believe taxes have gone up on average Americans even though they've dropped.

    And that's their bread & butter issue. Taxes. Something none of them understand.

    If Republicans want to avoid becoming a fringe party with less influence who are increasingly marginalized in major elections, they need to reform their primary process so these idiots stop picking lunatics for office who destroy the GOP's chances of winning. When Democrats can win in brain dead states like North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, and Virginia, you guys are doing something terribly wrong.

    Moderate Republicans, where are you?

    Also it's ironic that spending is an issue now, isn't it 3rdbase?

    You were AWOL on the spending during the Bush years (which ironically his carryover policies are where we're currently hemorrhaging the most money).

    But yes, take the high road like you had nothing to do with 2001-2009.

    It still blows my mind that you deny your 100% support for Bush's insane policies in the middle east.

    It wasn't just me that read all your constant trash on buffalorange. It was dozens of people who remember you for what you are. A total partisan hack who bows to Republican conventional wisdom.

    But I suppose total amnesia is the only way guys like you can live with your insane political beliefs.

    How were we AWOL? I voted for Obama and a large contingent of fiscally responsible officials at the federal, state, and local level. Unfortunately most of my candidates never got out of the primaries because other voters did not agree. You're making broad assumptions about a party that had been hijacked.

    I guess you had to be there.

    3rdbase (gameboy) posted some insane garbage about how great an idea the Iraq War was back in the day, now he pretends he never said a thing.

    It's very convenient. I'll give him that.

    Sure I did.

    That's why nobody has ever been able to support that claim.

    Didn't happen. Isn't "convenient."

    By the way.

    Here's a little inconvenience for you.

    My join date here, according to what is posted under my user name, is Jul 2002.

    I never posted, per your claim, anything on that other site that related to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, and I never, here or there, posted any support of the 2003 US action.

    I get how smart you are, but facts are pesky items.

    It simply never occurred, and I would like you to respond to that.

    Neither side understands math at the national, maybe even the state, level. If they did, they would comprehend that not only do revenues have to be raised and expenses cut, but they need to begin doing 'business' in a different manner.

    Pros: Josh Allen is one of the best prospects in recent years. His arm strength makes Superman cry like the baby he is. He would be the perfect fit in a place like Buffalo where it has never once stopped snowing or had winds under 30 mph (according to the national media).
    Cons: Josh Allen is one of the worst prospects in recent years. If you were unaware, his accuracy is really bad. He also suffers from poor decision making which is reflected in his haircut.
    Pro Comparison: Josh Allen is equivalent to playing your drunk friend in Madden. One play, he lofts a screen pass over the running back's head out of bounds. The next play he throws a perfect 50 yard pass into triple coverage with one eye open asking "which team am I".

    Re: Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    Just to be clear, I am going to insist on some kind of response to this bull----

    From JoeMama:

    "gameboy posted some insane garbage about how great an idea the Iraq War was back in the day, now he pretends he never said a thing."

    There is no pretending. It is a completely false claim, and I am going to insist on clarification, to the point of being banned, so moderators take note.

    Nothing bothers me more than lies.

    Just slightly off topic...Why are some so convinced that gameboy is/was 3rdbase on the other site?

    This is about some anonymous guy on another board saying something glorifying the Iraq War and that's the basis for calling the entire moderate GOP base AWOL?

    Re: Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    The fact is that it didn't happen. I have never advocated for the invasion of Iraq, or Libya, Syria or Iran for that matter.

    That isn't what I do.

    His is yet another imagination posting, and I have corrected him on it before.
