Who cares?  In Florida, a "White Hispanic" shot an innocent black honor student and got away with it!  It's an outrage!  /s

You forgot the black honor student did NOTHING wrong. He was simply enjoying his ice tea and skittles on a nice summer evening. No, the poor child was not making "drank".

This is the moment things go forward or stall. Republicans need to find out how high the scandal went and why, exactly, it went there. To do that they'll have to up their game.

The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.

The GOP needs to stay on this.  No way should this organization be in charge of our healthcare.   **nononono*

Thanks for paying attention Peggy. If you had been doing that all along, perhaps you wouldn't have supported Obama in 2008? Yes, I hold a grudge.
Why?  Why do you do that?  70 million people voted for Obama and 69,999,546 have never heard of Noonan.  None of the MSM is covering this.  But your First thought is F-you Peggy.

Who is your enemy?  It can't be Obama because you didn't hardly mention him except to blame his election on a columnist.  Then for good messure you get a dig in at all Republicans as unfocused.

The conservative way to get the message out...Dump on your own. 

And some of them think posting attacks against the GOP, every chance they get, makes them thoughtful instead of Obama supporters. 

Harriet Tubman said she freed a thousand slaves, and she could have freed a thousand more if they had known they were slaves.

I think because Peggy went out of her way to trash the McCain campaign - and in particular Sarah Palin (remember her hot microphone moment on MSNBC?)  we have people like her to thank for our current predicament... now that we are 5 and a half years into this nightmare all of a sudden she has buyers remorse. If she and others like her had done their jobs perhaps we would not be stuck with him.

I think I have no idea what you mean.  She "trashed McCain?"  I didn't read all of Noonan columns but "trashed" sounds like hyperbole.  I believe the worst thing she said was "it's over." She went on to explain that the comment was about the GOP base.  She said the GOP believe the GOP base is the American voter.  She said while that may have been true in the past it wasn't anymore.

the party can no longer assume that its base is utterly in line with the thinking of the American people.
  That is not trashing..could you give me an example of trashed?

Until I get those examples of "trashed" I'm not buying that Noonan (or others like her) created 10 million votes for Obama.  I believe Noonan is irrelevant other than to reflect Washington DC opinion.  She didn't become a factor at all for 99.9% of voters.

I believe Noonan had almost no effect on liberals, blacks, or even low information moderate voters.  I'm less than impressed with some conservative critical thinking, but even I don't think conservatives can be led to vote for a socialist liberal black man because Noonan says so.  How am I wrong?

If you are here for an itemized documentary of Peggy Noonan comments, you're in the wrong place. Peggy Noonan gave every impression she supported Obama in 2008, and that was the big one. Incumbents have the edge for re-election. Noonan spent ink and TV time on MSNBC showing she was part of the "in crowd" supporting the incompetent, unqualified one. I saw it, it irritated me, and so I do say 'eff you Noonan. Obviously, I'm not the only one who noticed this.

If your keen insight, your non GOP bashing, superior perspective tells you Noonan had and has no effect whatsoever, why bother commenting? If you're correct, then trashing or praising her has the same overall result, no effect. So, interestingly, your defense of Noonan goes against your observation.

My opinion is that she had a platform, and she used it to indirectly, and at times directly support BHO. Just in case you're unable to use google, I'll provide you a link. Try it, it's fun.

I asked for examples of "McCain trashing" to support it a charge of "McCain trashing."  I said it was hyperbole.  I never said Noonan didn't support Obama in 2008.  Back then I disagreed with Noonan. 
Today she trashes Obama and conservatives don't seem to like that.

Yeah, this looks bad.  I'm not sure how to twist that around so I'll give you +1 for finding the flaw in my arguement and stumping me at least temporarily. :thud:  I'll have to think on that.

Thanx for your reply.

With all due respect, a lot of people who are generally not inclined to favor democrats/liberals gave Obastard a second look back in 2008 because - particularly given his 2004 convention speech - he seemed at first glance to be a breath of fresh air: a democrat who had outgrown the stupidities of the political generation before him and ready to deal on a pragmatic, post-racial, basis with all comers.  I would count myself in that class of people.

That appearance proved to be an illusion however, and he quickly lost what support he had gained from folks to the right of center once it became apparent that he was merely new wine in old bottles.  Thankfully, I also count myself in this class of people as well.
