    Is Luke Tim’s son? If so, nice to see him on the same path as his Dad. Maybe he can replace David Gregory.

    Yes, he’s Tim Russert’s son. Yay nepotism!

      No one ever says that when, say, Ken Griffey Jr.or tony Gwynn Jr. make it to the big leagues.

    Rubio ’16

      I agree, I LOVE Marco Rubio! Forget that he’s hispanic, I really couldn’t care if he was from Mars. What I love is how patriotic he is, you hear him talk about America and he just adores everything this country stands for, what the founding fathers fought and died for. Most politicians seem to hate America and want to change everything this country is about just to benefit themselves, so it’s very refreshing to have someone like Marco Rubio. I really, really hope he runs in 2016 for President.

        How come no one talks about Brian Sandoval? He should have had a look-in for Romney’s running mate. I guess his being pro choice makes him unacceptable, which is too bad.

      A Ronald Reagan/Abraham Lincoln administration couldn’t get us out of the present mess, and you think a Walker/Rubio ticket will? Dems are changing filibuster rules, Obama Care is going to impossible to dismantle, and we are on our way to 20 Trillion in debt (think about the interest on that once rates adjust to normal numbers). You guys are delusional. Do yourselves and your families a favor: Buy a gun(s), sell the dollar, and get dual citizenship.

      Oh, and Keith, watch out for SC–can’t wait for them play spoiler for the Irish (no NC aspirations this year my friend)!

    This pretty much sums up how I feel about the election.

    Does anyone else have an eerie feeling about all these “boycotts” targeting Papa John’s, Applebee’s, etc, simply because they said there’d be ramifications for Obamacare implementation? It’s as if we’re not even allowed to criticize without REAL FEAR of retribution! I have a shaky feeling, almost like it’s the way the Nazi mob targeted anyone who criticized the Nazi party.

      Bryan, it really is like the United States Mafia as opposed to the United States Government. The corruption is mind-boggling and genuinely scary.

        Yes, I particularly agree with the “genuinely scary” part.

      Down south in Dixieland these places will do fine. I don’t know whether we survive in tact to see 2016 but Rubio would be fine with me.

      Who cares, let ’em boycott. It will just lead to more layoffs and worse unemployment. Time to pay the piper.

        The scariest part is that this is what Obama & the Democrats WANT. They want more people on food stamps and addicted to gov’t so they are their serfs. It makes them happy to see America in decline.

    Yeah, someone wrote that unemployment didn’t hurt Barry because unlike other years where people suffered and held grudge against incumbent, it actually allowed them to be an even more generous Santa Claus.

      They’re taking the play book that turned California from being our stronghold to a lost decrepit cause. Flood with Hispanics and give them stuff and swamp the whites. You’d never know but we won whites in California by 10 points. Hate to be so tribal but that’s what’s going on. 40 years ago was 90 percent white, now about 38.

    You can thank the Democrats!

    Obama and the Democrats were hugely successful in tarnishing the brand of Republicans the last four years by blaming President Bush for damaging the economy so badly that Obama just could not fix it rapidly. It worked simply because there was the ring of some truth in it and the Democrats never tired of repeating the same mantra over and over and over again. Obama also damaged Governor Romney’s image so badly over Bain Capital in Ohio that no positive ads could fix the damage.

    Negative ads work. And once a candidate or party label is deeply damaged recovery is very difficult.

    Thus I propose that beginning right now and over the next four years the RNC and Super Pacs should run short fifteen second ads weekly or monthly on radio and TV “thanking” the Democrats for something they have done that is a “no brainer” for negatively impacting the voters.

    For example, run an ad that says: If you are upset at having to add a form of personal health information to your tax forms now because of Obamacare regulations, “You can thank the Democrats!”

    Or, run an ad that says: If you just got laid off by your employer or got reduced to part time work because of the impact of Obamacare on his business, “You can thank the Democrats!”

    Or, run an ad that says: If you just got pushed out of your Medicare Advantage insurance and forced into an Insurance Exchange, after Obama promised that “You can keep the insurance you have now,” “You can thank the Democrats!”

    Or, run an ad that says: If you just got forced to buy health insurance you don’t think you need or can afford, because Obamacare will fine you if you don’t do it, “You can thank the Democrats!”

    Or, run an ad that says: If treaty x,y, or z just got forced through the US Senate taking away gun rights or national sovereignty of America, “You can thank the Democrats!”

    Or run an ad that says: If your gasoline now costs you $5 a gallon because Obama won’t let us drill for domestic oil, “You can thank the Democrats!”

    Running these self-evidently true single-issue short ads constantly for the next four years will so damage the Democrat brand that in any race with any candidate, the Democrat brand name will be an anchor of doom to their candidacies even before the candidates themselves are selected! The content can keep changing as new issues arise, but constantly hammering at the responsibility of the Democrats for bad things happening is the key to damaging their party label. We must not wait again for four years to “invent” a new campaign for new candidates. The Democrat brand needs to be permanently damaged, since solely by moving many Democrats to the Republican ranks will assure our electoral success in the future.

    You can thank the Democrats!

      Fantastic idea. Great way to cut through the legacy media crap. That and start a four year registration drive. 60 percent turnout is low so a lot of votes out there.
