Cronyism is cronyism.
Here's the state of Republican economic policy today: A $35 billion federal loan-guarantee program for wind and solar companies is scandalous "crony capitalism" that must be shut down and investigated.

But a $100 billion federal loan guarantee program mostly benefiting Boeing and Caterpillar should be expanded by 40 percent.

Another slam on the republican party.

I'll bet Obama thanks you for your support.

Cronyism is cronyism.

There is capitalism and there is cronyism. There is no such thing as crony capitalism. People that use that term are what as know as 'useful idiots'.

Oh, because it is the GOP you are willing to turn a blind eye and accept it?

Ummm, can someone post up the definition of hypocrite?

Right is right and wrong is wrong, it doesn't matter who does it.

Neo-conservatism is based on crony capitalism.

You damn right!
Politics is war.

Barack Obama is the enemy and must be defeated AT ALL COSTS.
I won't do anything that might give Obama comfort and support, or aid that Kenyan Imposter in any way.

I will lie, cheat and steal for the republican party and it's nominee.

Obama MUST go! He MUST be defeated.

If you don't see it that way, then you'd may as well vote for Obama.

I've always valued honesty and free thought.
I guess we are different that way.

The devil called. Hell is frozen over. I'm agreeing with GT's liberals and libertarians.

As the election draws closer, sides will be chosen and hearts will be broken.

I've made it unquestionably clear which side I'm on.

That can't be said about most of the posters here.

Yes you have. The progressive is strong in you.

Let me be perfectly clear, then. I'm on the side of Conservatism. I'm no longer represented by any political party.

Calling me a progressive is very much like accusing someone of being a racist.

It usually means you're losing the argument.

Who you're voting for is all that matters, not who you're running from.

Your vote doesn't exist or even matter until you walk into that voting booth.

Anything else and you're just pissing in the wind.

....... Anything else and you're just pissing in the wind...
Just don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining. I won't vote for a flip-flopping big-government liberal. Either one of them. My future contributions and votes will be in getting true conservative candidates elected to both houses of Congress. It's a nobler cause, and I don't have to shower as often to get the sleaze off of me.
