Hastert to Romney

It's actually Jonathan Martin at our new favorite website, Politico, with the scoop. More on this later.

Is this the kind of Republican Party Romney would be proud of: bloated spending, tin ear to scandal? Thank God Denny Hastert is support Mr. Synthetic.

Winin08,

Are you talking about Hastert or McCain?

Cancer Man always with the snide one liner about McCain. But this one doesn't make sense. McCain has been leading the fight to reduce the bloated federal budget. In fact he lists all the programs that he would cut on his website.

Tin ear to Scandal? It's McCain that warned the party about our close ties to donors/businesses. Look what happened, Abramoff and Delay practically handed the House to the Democrats and then Mark Foley came in and shut the door.

I don't think anybody can fault Romney for anything with respect to fiscal discipline or corruption-free governance.

Criticizing Hastert's endorsement of Romney is just sour grapes.

Foley was only guilty of being gay. The D's did it to us again by using our own good morals against us.

Remember the digs at Nussle being divorced? No democrat cares about marriage, but they kept throwing that at us because they know we care about marriage. DId that work? maybe. We sure didn't vote for him. Doug Gross had more total votes for gov than nussle.

Nussle is prolife and Doug, well, ins't. Go figure.

Republicans are guilty of letting democrats use our own good hearts against us. We have to stop letting them get away with that.

Foley was the great big huge giant example of that.

He was only gay. Not a pedophile.

Why do democrats hate gays? Republicans don't hate gays. We just agree with them that it's "alternative". Democrats don't even believe it's alternative. It's mainstream and abundantly normal to them.

Brit Hume sure thought the Hastert endorsement was a big deal last night during the SOTU coverage. He went on to say that Mitt had ever increasing support in the congress too.

As a Mitt fan, you could'nt possibly beat the timing. It was on FOX News which is what the GOP watches and it was said right while Bush was at the podium but before he began speaking.

Take that coin toss!

That's a cool tidbit Cancer Man. We had NBC on at Cooler HQ...

Wonder why we didn't see that mentioned anywhere else...

Cancer Man, I mean Yoda,

Give me a break. BFD on Hastert. He was a lousy Speaker who shoved the Foley scandal into the cloakroom and allowed Cunningham, Ney, and others to make us all look like a bunch of crooks. He's a congressman. Just one. He's not Speaker anymore. He's one of 435.

Big Deal.
