    They are supposed to pretty much butt out of state electoral politics - and right now is not the political climate to be challenging that norm.

    from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”

      like he's been doing in every other (just about) state?

      he doesn't even have to mention the recall election or barrett, just his presence would excite the base.

      his avoiding the state seems like he's afraid of the koch bros power.

      just sayin'

      •  I think many feel as you do, (0+ / 0-)

        bluezen.  And many others don't.  And me, I'm not much further ahead on my opinion then I was when I began. Still can't decide.  There's been so many great points made here, on both sides.

        I've said this several times in these comments, but I'll say it again.  This is obviously a complex issue, not as easy as any one of our judgments would make it out to be. Lots of emotion involved, lots of hopes and dreams and fight involved.

        And I guess, that's what I'm taking from this tonight. Democrats disagree on this, like we do on so many things. But I think at least, one thing this poll points out, albeit on a microscopic scale, is that there is NO obvious answer.

        And that we all should fold that into our judgments, either way they fall.
