Yeah, sure. What he really means is that he has no future as a Republican career politician in a one-party Democrat state.

What he means is his funding from donors was cut.

Too bad Reagan didn't think that way.

Maybe then we wouldn't have Cut N Run from the terrorists who bombed the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut.

Oops, I should have included a Trigger Warning for RightOCenter before bringing that up!

Republicans have lost almost all meaningful power in California. Of course big donors and professional politicians are abandoning the GOP here. What I predict will eventually evolve is a new, uniquely moderate GOP in California with no real partisan counterparts in the rest of the country. The GOP of California will be mostly unrecognizable to the GOP in the Southern States.

The Cali GOP will be the same as the Illinois gop. Toothless and inefficent.

The Trumublicans here don't see the writing on the wall. Their party is getting ready to implode because you can't build a long term strategy just based on hatred unless you are willing to go full on Nazi and most Trumpubicans aren't really ready to take it that far.

Give it time. It's early.

"In July, when Trump urged several Democratic congresswomen of color to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came," Mayes called Trump's words "wrong and abhorrent.""

AH HA!!!!! Caught you Liberal media hypocrites in the action, which should be enough to cause Liberals to finally leave their party or at least own up to the issue and try to fix it. Only because he's back in the news again, last week we had articles about Zimmerman and I mentioned how it wrongly turned into a racial issue about white people being racist. Yet, the quote above SPECIFICALLY states Trump talked to women of color. Well, congratulations, AOC and Zimmerman are pretty much in the same ethnic circumstance so this proves beyond any doubt whatsoever that the entire Martin issue was not about racism...or at least not about a white person being so racist he felt like shooting a black guy. Sucks when you are proven wrong so many times, isn't it? I mean, I think it would suck enough to leave your party over (which I did many years ago). Time other people start getting the clue that the media is the enemy. The media is not a bastion of freedom that is on our side. They are on their own side...the side of greed and power.

Nope, not about the OP but still nonetheless relevant in the political spectrum.

LOL.

Racism isn't a problem, so long as it doesn't reach the level of a white person being so racist he shoots a black person... or eight black people in a black church.

You remain a credit to your race, Humtake.
