Two additional elections will fill out the remaining Georgia spots for the DNC. On May 12, an election will be held to elect 14 “public leaders and elected officials” or PLEOs. On May 19, an election will be held to choose 24 at-large and nine alternates. Jimmy Carter holds a voting position as well, in deference to his former position as a U.S. president.

Interesting that the Dems are sending 119 and the GOP only 84.
But why are the Dems using the old District map?

Talk about keeping in the “Old Guard”! The Dems hold out delegate spots for 14 “public leaders and elected officials” or PLEOs. That’s Grass Roots?????

Repubs do not have reserved voting delegate spots for the Old Guard leadership. EVERYBODY has to run and be elected.

Talk about stifling new blood out of the party!!!!

Put an asterisk next to the Republican 13th District. It’s being appealed due to numerous documented rules violations that occurred at the District Convention.

The GOP primaries are so messed up that they really have no clue as to who should be their candidate. Did the MSM get it wrong, but is it true that the only person NOT to win Iowa is Newt? Dixiecrats slight of hand about voter ID, while they can’t even get their own election right! Women Rise Up!

If Obama has got to go, then so does Boehner, McConnell, and all of the obstructionist, NOW, please, dear heavens, please…Dixiecrats are required to start every sentence against Obama that George W. Bush was a great president!

One can dream.

But remember, without the President they would have no one to blame for their persistent, colossal failure.

The sad thing is you probably could not keep up with my work or off time schedule. I own two businesses (really one active and one passive) and work 10 to 12 hours per day. I have two children in school, cook their dinner everyday, wash their clothes, both are in sports (never missed a game or match). Being able to keep up with these blogs and tell the truth about conservatism is really not that hard when you have the right equipment and the ability to multi task.

Just admit it that you can not stand to hear the truth. You know conservatism is the best philosophy and the Democrats have left that philosophy behind many years ago but you just can not give up that loyalty to a dead party in this state. You are probably a lot like my grandfather was. He was a good conservative, union member truck driver blue dog democrat. He refused to see the change in the party with Carter. But he was wise enough to see how Carter’s liberal policies hurt the country and finally voted for Reagan to get that loser out of the white house. He still voted for Dems in the state until the day he died. Loyalty is a great thing but being loyal to the disregard of your own philosophical beliefs is just plain dumb.

So tomorrow we will be greeted with yet another blog here about Newt. AJC article:
“Gingrich re-evaluating campaign after Del. loss

Newt Gingrich said he was rethinking his bid for the presidency after another series of disappointing primary showings Tuesday night, but he stopped short of dropping out. ‘Over the next few days we’re going to look realistically at where we’re at,’ Gingrich said”

The voters LONG AGO re-evaluated his campaign and roundly REJECTED it. His ego does not allow him to understand that nobody outside of the AJC cares whether he “re-thinks” his long dead campaign. All other reporters abandoned him. The biggest crowd he draws are his Secret Service agents. Maybe they will be released this weekend.

(Good joke most of you will be repeating tomorrow: If the Secret Service can’t be serviced secretly, who can?)

Good one Centrist,
The sad truth with those secret service agents is that just like George Zimmerman, guns and alcohol don’t mix very well.

Conservative retirees who voted for Bush in 2004 discovered in 2008 that conservatism subtracted money from their retirement accounts and added years to their working life. That said, although Mr. Romney may not remember the worst economic meltdown in nearly 80 years, many working people and investors certainly do remember.

4th District GOP is being challenged as well for rules violations.

hope folks watched pbs frontline on 2008 crash last nite, thank you mostly republicans, bill clinton and bob rubin. mehlman rings twice is correct. though some of the folks on wall st might vote democratic on social issues (after all they are pretty brite) and hedge their bets by giving money to dems, they really adhere to repub philosophy of every man for himself at any costs, bunch of greedy ba$tards. show had clip of barnes trying to fight predatory lending but first order of business after he was defeated was to repeal that law…..and look at metro home prices now. yes the people who got those shady loans are somewhat at fault because many of them dumb as hell when it comes to finance but everyone in the food chain from agent, broker, banks, to wall st knew they were doing wrong.

europe is also wavering wondering if their so called austerity measures were ill timed. get ready for another crash.

It does seem to be a waste of time and money all around.

The President is already selected as the winning candidate and the republicans don’t even like the second place finisher.

More fuzzy math from Look before I Leap. Reoubs are sending 118 plus alternates not 84. 118 if they can figure out who won or not in at least 2 districts.

Nothing will happen with the results from the 13th. Hekmati is Everhart’s chubby lil’ lapdog.

This state will not be in play for the Democrats this year. In fact, the entire Southern region will be strongly in the Romney column – especially if Romney makes a Southern VP pick. The general election is for Obama to lose since fuel prices and unemployment will probably inch down a little bit this fall right before the election – giving the administration a symbolic boost. If they cannot capitalize on those events, it will be a Romney win by several points. Then again, if fuel prices don’t come down and unemployment ticks up, we will have a new president in January.
