pragmatistferlife,The GOP stands no chance in 2016. WHO could they run
that could win?So this pretense that unless we do it your way we
will blow it... is just bunk.The pretense that the GOP needs to be
more like Democrats, is lame.Nancy Pelosi's lament... that
Elections shouldn't matter so much (goggle it) is coming true. It
doesn't matter if you elect a Republican or a Democrat (the past 16 years
are proof of that). Obama campaigns against everything Bush did... and then
does about the same things when in office. Elections don't matter
anymore. It doesn't matter which party you vote for. They both do about
the same thing. I'm getting used to that.That's why I
think it's OK to do some bold thinking and even bold talking (and not just
follow the party line this time). GOP isn't going to win anyway. Who do
they have that could win (whether GOP walks in lock-step or not)??
This is a coming opportunity for the Republicans similar to what the Democrats
had in 2006 and 2008. If all of the GOP do not see the BIG picture and unite,
they deserve to lose.
Here's two really funny thoughts;I'm an
"Independent" (the anti-thesis of a "Democrat"). Democrats
who act more like the Living Dead able only to repeat the same memorized talking
points.Now those two statements that Democrats don't have
diversity of thought will lose you elections..and have lost you elections,
whether you're a right leaning independent or an ideological tea partier.
What Democrats have learned and Republicans have forgotten is how to
air your differences and come to a decision and then back that decision. It
only took Democrats 40 years to figure it out, and I doubt it's a permanent
practice.You have a very short memory if you think the Democrats
marched single file holding hands to vote yes for the ACA. You also
aren't paying attention if you haven't noticed the differences in the
"liberals" posts on this thread about the ACA. Hey, keep it
up though, between republicans dysfunctional behavior, and your blindness to
Democratic tactics you all just might blow 2016.
If the day ever comes that Mr. TRUTH looks around and sees no RINOs, that will
mean that HE'S the new RINO.
The GOP is divided because they have thinking people unlike the Democrats who
act more like the Living Dead able only to repeat the same memorized talking
@2bitsThe media only reports the real sniping back and forth between the
establishment republicans and the tea party. Many of the Republican elected
officials seem to have the same position as earlier poster Truth.
Let us not forget the GOP had the edge in 2012 and lost that too. Once people
start listening to what they're saying the wheels tend to go off.
I don't think there's anything wrong with division... let's call
it "Diversity" shall we?What's WRONG with a little
Diversity??===Must all GOP walk, talk, and vote, in
lock-step (like the Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi drones) to be OKd by those in
the media?I think a little diversity of thought and approach between
candidates is refreshing in politics. But then.. I'm an
"Independent" (the anti-thesis of a "Democrat"). So I LIKE to
see a little diversity.
Deeply Divided? More like the Conservatives ridding themselves of the
RINO's.....Like Hatch, McCain, Flake and Boehner!
Umm, Don't look now, but... Barrack Obama is NOT running
in the Mid-terms.A moot point.Slice and dice, Sit and
Spin, Twist and Shout all you want, If Americans view
Democrats policies more, you can expect Democrats to be winning more.
