GOP's 2012 hopefuls crowd town they love to hate 
WASHINGTON – Republicans who may want President Barack Obama's job flocked to the town they love to hate this weekend and repeatedly ripped into the Democrat, an early tryout of sorts for the GOP nomination.

"Barack Obama has created at least three jobs that I know of: Bob McDonnell, Chris Christie and Scott Brown," former House speaker Newt Gingrich told a fawning crowd Saturday, celebrating recent GOP victories in governor's races in Virginia and New Jersey, and the Senate in Massachusetts, respectively.

He predicted Republicans would take back control of Congress this fall and added: "We'll elect a new president in 2012..."

... Others wouldn't rule out a run.

"If you see me losing 40 pounds that means I'm either running or have cancer," quipped [Mississippi Gov. Haley] Barbour, a former lobbyist and GOP chairman who Republican insiders say would be a formidable candidate. He said he would focus this year on helping fellow Republicans in governor's races. "If after these elections are over there's anything to think about, I'll think about it then," he said.

Still, he added: "I think it is unlikely that I'll run for president but that does not qualify as ruling it out."

He made a brief stop at the conservatives' meeting late Friday...

*** 
Can't resist a comment: "If you see me losing 40 pounds that means I'm either running or have cancer..."  That's a "quip"?   Lookingup  Hatred  What a disgusting state our nation's in if that comment is not only acceptable but considered a "quip".

Great... there's a thought.  Now nothing will never EVER be passed considering these politicians.

Not that I'm against Republicans or anything, it is if we have a Republican Congress and a Democrat president, I got a feeling that laws and legislation is going to be moving even slower than before.

What really gets me about the article was that some people were actually chanting, "Run, Dick, Run!", saying Dick Cheney should run for president.  My brain hurts just reading and knowing that.

Well all I gotta say is this.. If, and that is a big if, they get control- payback is a b***h. If they dont think for a second that the democrats will remember all of this obstruction they are crazy. Not that im advocating that. Its petty, selfish, and hurts this country. However, they will do it. It will be the democrats using the filibuster.  Im hoping that Obama and the democrats grow a pair and start playing the game instead of trying to play nice.

I'm always happier when Congress does nothing but argue.  Every new law passed is one more freedom lost forever, and too many are already gone!

That's the way our system of government was designed.  When one party controls both the executive and legislative branch, checks and balances are frustrated.  I for one would hate to see either the Republicans or the Democrats be able to enact their whole agendas.
