GOP has no backbone

November 3, 2013

I am sick and tired of these spineless republicans in Washington who call themselves conservatives. These rinos have to go....

"REQUIEM FOR TEABAGGERS"

In the first comment, I said:

"What a load of pure unadulterated B.S.!

So many words, so little actual truth or facts."

-

Then Premier asked:

"Please elaborate John."

Premier: I would humbly suggest that you ask the voters of Virginia, Alabama, and N.J., (particularly the teabaggers), for the explanation you want.

I think they pretty clearly figured out what was B.S., and they REJECTED it!

"The Tea Party is taking over the GOP. It is not easy and the fight will get nasty...,"

REALLY ERIK ??

Teabagger candidates lost every race except one!

ERIK, if you have any pull, could you get me two ringside seats for the fight ??

Price is no object!

Wanted to share this....last year just before the election the GOP favorability was at 36%. One year later, just before this year's elections, they stand at a favorability of just 22%. Ouch! Whatever it is you folks on the right are doing, keep on doing it!

Endorsing? Don't think I'm important enough to endorse anyone, but of course I want to see Democrats win wherever they're running. I watched an interview with the Kentucky Governor earlier and he was pointing out how successful the ACA rollout was in his state. They did their own healthcare exchange and it's gone very well. I'm confidant that the federal exchange will be operating efficiently very soon.

My nephew's team won their division championship. First time he ever played football and the coach had seven players who never played the game. They went undefeated.

Good day!

more... Cuccinelli's attempts to fashion himself a jobs and business-centered candidate were largely ineffective. Instead, his vocal positioning against abortion and gay marriage, along with his record as state attorney general, haunted his candidacy.

Poll after poll demonstrated key weakness for Cuccinelli: a deficit with women voters as high as 20 points, and problems with independents and GOP voters partial to Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis.

"Virginia has changed and they haven't," former Virginia Rep. Tom Davis, a moderate Republican who represented the D.C. suburbs for 14 years, said of his party's controlling conservative wing. "They're an anachronism. They're losing young people, they're losing women, they're losing people moving in. You've got to adapt to that."

Republicans struggle with division and big changes in crucial Virginia By Jessica Taylor, NBC News 11/3/13

<snip>

Democrats appear poised for another big electoral victory in Virginia on Tuesday as conservative and Tea Party Republicans face real questions about whether they can win again in this fast-changing state. The gubernatorial race between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli has remained unchanged for weeks, with McAuliffe holding a steady and sizable lead in most polls.

Those surveys tell a stark story: The GOP is losing not because the party failed to nominate the most conservative candidate -- but because they did.

Erik, are you a tea bagger? You got to be with that statement. "Very Liberal Democrats in 1996, 2008, and 2012". Are you out of your mind? Saint Ronald Raygun, is very liberal according to tea bag nation! Clinton is a DLC Democrat, (DINO) and Obama is a centrist Democrat, maybe mildly leaning left. Put down the crack pipe!

Who's kidding who? The tea baggers are the Republic Party base! They've been there all along! They're the imbiciles who tune in daily to Gush, Sean(baby jesus), beckster, dork levin, billo really?, and focksnooze. The problem for the old guard genteel billionaire Repubs is that they've created Frankenstein and it's gotten out of control. My advice to tea bag nation.....go to the right, you haven't gone far enough!

Sideliner:

You don't understand the rift between the Tea Party and establishment Republicans.

Some of us understand.

The GOP ran moderates in 1996, 2008 and 2012. They lost to very liberal Democrats.

We do not buy the liberal establishment notion the our candidates need to be more compromising and moderate.

Instead, we know that only a true, dedicated conservative/libertarian can be the clear choice for voters.

A recent poll even showed how more and more voters want a smaller, less intrusive gov't.

"It amazes me how many posters here are backing the Tea Party when high ranking GOP members are not at all happy with what the Tea Party has done for the Republican Party."

The Tea Party views "high ranking GOP members" as part of the problem and are trying to actually save the GOP from being nothing more than Democrat-Lite. A delayed train wreck is still a train wreck.

President Barack Obama told his aides that he’s "really good at killing people" while discussing drone strikes." - President Obama, receiver of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

According to the new book "Double Down," in which journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann chronicle the 2012 presidential election. Peter Hamby of the Washington Post reported the moment in his review of the book.

The party just can't seem to win elections any more and that is due to the extremists from that Tea Party fringe they put up for vote." - sideliner

I look at it, this way....

Republicans KNOW they'll be needing throw-away candidates, for the 2016 & 2020 Presidential-elections. Who BETTER, to push to the front-o'-the-line, than those wacky T-Baggers??!!!

But, there was NOTHING, more-amusing, this morning, than watching Mittens Romney...running-around-in-circles...repeating the same talking-points (to different questions)...over, and, over, and, over, and, over, and, over....

The party just can't seem to win elections any more and that is due to the extremists from that Tea Party fringe they put up for vote. It's almost like the moth diving into the flame; you know you're going to die, but maybe this one time we've got a shot. More than a fistful of Senate races were lost due to the extreme offerings of the Party.

Don't the people here on these posts listen to the sane portion of the party that says the Tea Party movement has done more to hurt them then help them. Evid David Frum, past advisor to GW said, "Right now, tea party extremism contaminates the whole Republican brand." Isn't anybody within the party listening to the voice or reason?

"...conservative extremism..."

Project much, parrot?

The man on whom you slobber from taynt to tip is the extremist. A man who said the Constitution he is sworn to uphold is flawed. A man who sought out Marxist professors in college. A man whose political mentor is an unrepentant domestic terrorist and whose spiritual mentor is an America-hating racist. A man whose actions regarding recess appointments were declared unconstitutional by the courts and whom routinely uses executive fiat and regulators to skirt the Congress. A man whose Attorney General is held in Contempt of Congress. And a man who blatantly lies to the American people." - Ritty77

Who would know that, better, than you T-Baggers?

I'd always assumed that's why you T-Baggers preferred all your "political"-input emanating from (or, maybe, more-appropriately "expelled-BY") The Axis Of Ignorance.
