Tehran Tom's political career is over

Remember when Republicans shut down the government last year, and it was an utter fiasco for them? Most Americans were furious at that stunt, and Republicans ended up totally capitulating?

Well, I haven't been watching the news for some months, but I'm guessing that Republicans must have paid dearly at the ballot box last November. And the lunatic ringleader of that collosal @#$& up, a Canadian-born fellow IIRC, has probably never been heard from again. LOL, people once spoke of him as a Presidential contender.

Regards,

We-never-take-advantage-of-this-stuff Manny

1. Don't be too sure.

The knuckledragger base love it when GOPers do horrible, stupid things.

10. That is why they vote for the GOP imo.

 

Reagan was a cruel man and loved by millions for it.

2. I love Massachusetts

It can be an impediment to understanding what flies in the rest of the country though.

3. They are talking about running Cotton in 2020 for POTUS

They are talking about passing a Rand Paul type law to let this idiot run for both POTUS and Senate in 2020 http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/bart-hester-tom-cotton-arkansas-ballot

An Arkansas lawmaker already has Sen. Tom Cotton's (R-AR) prospects in 2020 on his mind. State Sen. Bart Hester (R) introduced legislation that would let candidates appear on the ballot simultaneously as House or Senate candidates and presidential candidates as well.

Hester specifically mentioned Cotton when discussing the bill.

"Tom Cotton would be my current idea of someone who should be afforded this opportunity," Hester said, according to the Associated Press. "Politics, if I've learned anything, it changes every day and there could be the great next hope show up tomorrow. But I don't think it's reasonable to say I wouldn't be looking at Tom Cotton to have that opportunity."

Shutting down the government apparently did not hurt Carnival Cruz too much.

The amusing concept is that for this plan to make sense, the Ark. GOP is conceding the 2016 race to the Democrats

5. Hindsight is 2020. All you'll see is Cotton's ass heading for the hills.

Where do find these dopes?

4. Simple question

 

How would you propose Dems take advantage of the Iran letter?

What specifically do you think Dems should do?

6. Again...you've posted and OP on this issue bashing Dems but offering no real solutions. How would

 

you propose we "take advantage" of this?

Perhaps if you rallied the Internets, Manny, we could.

13. The OP will not offer any real solutions

 

I see it as more of a "neener neener neener" type of OP....as in:

"Neener neener neener! Cruz and the GOPers shut down the government in late 2013 and nothing happened.....and nothing will happen with Tom Cotton either! Neener neener neener!"

11. How exactly did the shutdown benefit Cruz?

It raised his national profile, yes, but most people think he's a goofball and his chances of winning the nomination are virtually nonexistent.

Now you know half of the American voters are dimwits and vote against their own interests. Besides, no one in the clown car has any "suspicious" emails for baggage.

15. He will likely be re-elected in 2020.

Too many rednecks will vote for him no matter what.

Tom Cotton will never be President.

16. Hey Manny,

I just watched that washed-up right winger Joe Malone on NECN Braudside program defending the actions of the Traitor Tots.

Jesus Christ, he looked like he just climbed out of a dumpster behind the Boston Herald - unshaven, long greasy hair, oxford shirt unbuttoned down to his bellybutton. You woulda loved it - a real classic ending to a Massachusetts republican politician.

Sounds even worse now.

He was a good-looking guy in the day.

19. I met him in Hyannis a few years ago.

He looked polished, and spoke very well.

I couldn't believe what I saw tonight. I'm seriously surprised NECN had him on-camera looking like he did.

Seems like it was a reasonably sudden change.

22. Most people can't remember last month not to mention last year.

And the republicans seemed to do very well at the ballot box last november considering they gained 9 senators (and senate control), 13 representatives, and 1-2 governorships (depending on how Bill Walker votes)

23. Yes, exactly

Let's just shut up and let them make fools of themselves! They'll pay come election day.

Just like every other time in the last couple of decades or so.

24. The worst that could possibly happen to Cotton...

...is that he might have to pack up his desk and move it over to K Street.

Where he will enjoy at least as much political power.

25. Haha! Oh, yeah... Remember when a bunch of republicans made a deal with the Iranians to keep the...

hostages extra long during the elections and release them THE DAY their guy was sworn it? and... and... then... they were caught red-handed selling arms to the Iranians to illegally fund rebels in Central America. Then they were all prosecuted! IIRC one was a Marine that was Court Marshaled and sent to Gitmo.

:sigh: Those were the days.

Yep, this stuff is consigned to the memory hole.

Every.Single.Time.
