He's just one of several that will spread the votes around.

I'd be far more impressed by postings here, about great GOP opponents of sitting democrat officeholders.

Ok, great, and I will be far more impressed when YOU start that ball rolling.

Nope, the GOP is rotting from the inside out for the very reason people like you support the old guard over and over no matter how bad they are or how little they actually accomplish to stop the forward march to this becoming a third world country.  People like McConnell are every bit as much the problem as Reid.  Just because they have an R behind their name means squat.  Case in point you insisted McCain should be returned to the senate. What - EXACTLY - has he done for the GOP since he was re-elected.

Less and less civil and friendly here.

Place has morphed from --

-- favoring Rudy Giuliani, to

--"GOP Briefing Room", to

--The Briefing Room, to

--Tea Party central, and if your veer off their line, your are attacked personally, by moderators.

Rap is not speaking as a Mod, nor am I. We are regular posters like anyone else, who have to abide by the same rules. I'm sorry you feel that way.

Exactly.  None of us here speak as staff members when giving our opinions.  We speak for ourselves and no one else.

A truly brain-dead remark.  Look at McConnell's voting record, look at his rating from the ACU.

It's all or nothing with the TP.  Vote with me on THIS, or to hell with you, no matter what you've done in the past.  Now Mitch McConnell, who spent hours trying to stop Obamacare, went to the wall on the sequester, is now, according to Rap, no better than Harry Reid.

Unappeaseables are just that.

I am the ONLY poster on this board who has been slapped, twice, by mods in the last two weeks.  Both slaps were delivered, I suspect, by happyg (who has as much business being an impartial moderator on this board as I do.)  Now I'm told, in a personal email by the owner of this board, that bullshit is a perfectly acceptable word, especially when it is the most apt word in reaction to a post.

You and I are endangered here. We're both Republicans, but we're not the RIGHT KIND of Republican.  More and more this place is resembling the place I left seven years ago because of the increasing rancor,  insistence on lock-step opinions, and a condemnation to the pits of hell because of a disagreement over tactics.

Well, you had me with your first paragraph, and lost me with all your freakin' drama in the second one.   Honestly, you remind me of the Carol Burnett parody of the aging drama queen.   :laugh:

I agree that the moderation has gotten more a lot more persnickety the past couple of months, and like you, I suspect its coming from the same overzealous (in my opinion) moderator.  That being said, your whining, throwing stones and playing the victim is most unattractive, but then, those who throw stones usually have the thinnest skins anyway.  At least in my experience.

You are both wrong. I have never used the Mod status, but always posted as a regular poster, while keeping an eye open. I enjoy your posts, Hillary, but mostly ignore sink's because of the confrontations. Whatever the slapdowns were, I assume they were earned.

So it is fine with you, speaking not as a moderators, but as a "regular posters like anyone else," to be less civil and friendly?

And to do personal attacks?

You seem to consider pretty much anything from us "peons" on this site as a personal attack...    you love to come in here and throw out ad hominem remarks aimed at the people who post here and conservative sites in general; I've lost count of the number of times you said how stupid black people are - because you are convinced one book you read is the holy grail on the subject - and then for good measure you make comments about people who listen to Limbaugh or Hannity, etc.  In general whether you mean it to sound that way or not your posts are looking down your nose at most of us as you if we are unworthy of breathing the same rarefied air... which does not garner a lot of respect in return no matter what position a person does or does not hold - but when people respond in kind you whine that we are rude or stalking you or making personal attacks.  Try actually discussing with everyone instead of putting everyone down and perhaps we'll all get along better... you may have been the boss in your prior working life, but in here you put your pants on one leg at a time like everyone else.

1. In that  diatribe against me, you used the word "you" about 15 times.

2. Are you speaking as a moderator?

Sure is not civil and friendly, as I stated.

Did you see this showing as "mod"........ nope this was spoken as a member who is tired of you talking down to all us and then complaining when someone says something that offends you.

You pretty much consider any response to you as an attack.  Nothing is stopping you from placing people you don't like on ignore.

No, just you and two or three others.

My skin is thicker than cowhide.  It has to be to put up with the Cruzites and their "we will brook no opposition" attitudes.

"Brain dead" is an insult?  That's mild up against some of the vitriol you spew.

Perhaps you can show me where I ever referred to you as "brain dead."  Projecting again, Sinky.
