Massive throngs of eager Georgians gather to hear words of wisdom from Jim Martin.

Here’s a video of some of Jim Martin’s bus tour that shows just how fired up Georgians are at the prospect of a Jim Martin victory. I’m also told that at the bus tour’s visit to Gwinnett, the Fair Taxers out numbered the Martinistas. Yep, he’s got ’em fired up.

  1. Nah, I’ll keep making snide comments about Jim Martin even if he wins. He’s a nice man, but one of the most left wing candidates ever put forward by the Georgia Democratic party.

    Jeff Dickerson had it right yesterday on the Georgia Gang when he said “Jim Martin was put forward to stop Vernon Jones, nobody ever thought he’d actually be competitive.”

    Who needs massive Nuremberg style rallies when you are riding the longest coattails in the history of GA politics?

    Snuggles ™ is looking better and better…at least he voted like a REAL republican occasionally?

    You (cough) reap what you sow

    Just remember that the Nazis were #1 about squashing the Communists as their natural enemies. And that only one side has been shouting about Muslims, America hating, godless peoples. There’s a lot of volkisch ideas out there, but the only one you can reasonably apply to the left is a battle of the environment against the rapidly spreading town.

    AIG is HAPPY……Thanks to Saxby and the GOP administration, they were given $125 BILLION in September that is now GONE!

    The damage that Saxby has wrought is breathtaking.

    Obama supporter Warren Buffett is also ‘happy,’ for the Saxby Bailout gives a government GUARANTEE of his 9% preferred stock dividends, while frugal Georgians are capped at 3 to 4% on their savings.

    The Kuwaiti’s are also happy that the Saxby Bailout saved their 10% preferred from being wiped out.

    Finally, the Morgan Stanley crowd is HAPPY that they get $10 billion in bonuses courtesy of the Saxby Bailout. They are also HAPPY to get 1% money from the SAxby Bailout that they can reinvest at 4%.

    Saxby is HAPPY because he has so many happy idiots supporting his theft from them.

    “One in five US homeowners with mortgages underwater”
    Fri Oct 31, 2008 1:12pm EDT

    – “NEW YORK, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Nearly one in five U.S. mortgage borrowers owe more to lenders than their homes are worth, and the rate may soon approach one in four as housing prices fall and the economy weakens, a report on Friday shows.”

    – “Seven hard-hit states — Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Ohio — had 64 percent of all “underwater” borrowers, but just 41 percent of U.S. mortgages.”

    – “Yet despite a series of expensive government programs to spur lending, mortgage rates are rising, making it tougher to borrow or refinance. The rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage jumped this week to 6.46 percent from 6.04 percent a week earlier”

    Anyone have any sort of financial news to report?

    You know, I was wondering too, is anyone running against James Mills?

    And Paul Broun–did that joker ever get sworn in?

    We forget so much, so quickly.

  9. IndyInjun says:

    Broun got sworn in. At least Barry Fleming believes that now, as he hosted a fund-raiser for Broun a couple of weeks ago.

    Next thing you know Saxby will be raising money for Jim Martin…..
