    The Republicans seem to have learned from the shutdown: the polls showed that Republican chances for the ‘14 elections plummeted during the shutdown but rose after the news turned from the shutdown to the ACA problems.


    In ’12, the Republicans had a hard time nominating anyone who could win, and Obama’s campaign machine remained the best anyone has ever seen with micro-information on voters.


    In spite of deporting more Hispanics per annum than any previous president, the overwhelming majority of Hispanic voters chose Obama (his ads to Hispanics were “Sólo deportados criminales atroces!”).


    But the Republican nominee won’t be facing Obama, or anyone with the Obama election machine.


    (The Tea types know that Obama didn’t deport any Hispanics, that was just a lie by the liberal press. I once found Federal deportation data going back at least to Reagan to show Obama’s deportations vs earlier presidents, but now the Federal data I could find only goes back to 2007, so comparisons with prior presidents is no longer possible. Another example of great micro-managing the campaign!)

    Re-election to his Congressional seat comes first, hence his and Boehner’s Big P in the Tea. They’ve GOT to come to the center; they don’t inhabit one of those ‘safe’ Southern Plantations…

    It was Patty Murray who did all the work.
    Patty for president.

    Hello! He has to run for re-election to his seat in Congress in 2014 before he can run for president in 2016.

    What liberal press? Ever heard of Democracy Now? Young Turks? I thought not. Those are really not Liberal as truthful. Not corporate which is all conservative. Not loony like some Reich wing “news” sources.

    The Tea Party are moving to take over the seats of old time Republicans to replace them with hard line TPR’s.

    He made one compromise deal at the END of the year. So, he won’t get coal.

    Aren’t you the same paid commenter that claimed there was no way Romney could lose?

    Maybe some Republican/Fox “news” viewer can explain Paul Ryan’s budgetary “principles”.
    -
    After his college education was financed by Social Security, he voted for every Bush budget busting bill, the unfinanced wars along with the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, secret earmarks, unfinanced Medicare Part D, and the unfinanced Bush stimulus, among others.
    -
    Then, he became a big deficit hawk and in front of every microphone worried that we were spending ourselves into oblivion. He submitted a “budget” which included tax increases from expiring Bush tax cuts, which he voted against. When asked why it didn’t balance, his response was “Well, we haven’t run the numbers, yet”.
    -
    And every Republican/Fox “news” viewer applauded.
    -
    Now, he is evidently the liaison between Republicans and the TSE (Tax Somebody Else) party.
    -
    If they ever have a Chameleon Party, Ryan can lead it.

    Now you come to me and you say — “St. Nicholas, give me the White House.” — But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me Santa. Instead, you come into my house on the day my savior is born, and you ask me to do treason, for money."
