Posted on 08/13/14 at 07:08 pm in response to Johnson wins GOP nomination for governor

The GOP had four running in the primary for governor and Mr. Johnson, the endorse candidate, won but it wasn't a run away win. The GOP still has a long way to go before they can be considered a viable party. They can't have a functional party when every ten Republicans feel like they are the way forward for the party. They have been too busy drumming people out of the party to be worried about leadership, and it shows.

if the winner offers anything beyond the Republican talking points, which yield nothing.

Here is all you need to know about Republicans. George W. Bush, Tim Pawlenty, Michelle Bachmann, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, etc., etc. None of them can put two sentences together and make any rational sense that is based in fact not fiction. None are leaders. They are only the Republican noise machine. McFadden is not a leader either, he is just a new voice in the noise machine. Bush and Pawlenty have accomplishments no one would want to advertise. That is why Republicans act like...

Yup, we are still recovering and repairing from the Pawlenty/Zellers disaster. How is your Republican party doing on recovering from their own $2,000,000 disaster brought on by a previous Republican leader, Tony Sutton? Face it the Republicans just are not fiscally responsible, despite all their baseless claims. There is just too much evidence to the contrary. Living in the world of fiction will not make the Republican story any better.

Here are recent examples of Republicans, and I mean all Republicans, and how they manage. We have George W. Bush who brought the country to its knees. Then we have Tim Pawlenty who left the state after he amassed a 5-6 BILLION dollar debt. Why do I throw all Republicans in with Bush and Pawlenty, because they were lock step with the Bush and Pawlenty decisions. Once upon a time there were moderate Republicans who would speak out, but don't now. Moderates have been drummed out of the...

It's time to move to Wisconsin.

Norquist has the GOP right by the gruff of the neck because to GOP lacks the skill and common sense to make their own decisions. Norquist, connected to the Polaroid fortune, spends his time making sure he doesn't lose a cent of his fortune. Republicans aren't allowed to stray from the failed Republican doctrine even when it will benefit Republicans as well. Norquist is a short sighted self serving individual who deserves no more attention than you or I as he has been elected to NOTHING!...

For years politicians have turned a blind eye to America's immigration problem because it benefitted their district. The Bush administration response to illegal immigration was always “THEY CAN COME BECAUSE THEY WILL DO THE JOBS NO ONE ELSE WILL DO”. This migration served to benefit the mega agricultural companies in places like California and Arizona, among others. Families came here, did the work, and had children (now American citizens). The pressure was put on the politicians, who had...

Now he can hit the talk show and try to rebuff his fading star.

No matter who you feel the winner is everyone is a winner because of what both parkways offer everyone. The foresight of the politicians and city planners years ago left the people of today and tomorrow with a real gift that can enjoyed by all.
