“Why is the RNC so utterly deferential to libs and to the press? I mean, grow a pair ...”
You get exhibit A of a Republican governor NOT being deferential to libs, suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous slanders, and STANDING UP to the press ... and in reaction to that, you say the opposite of what’s going on.
“I’m not one who really wants to be confrontational.”
WEll guess what, maybe there are good conservative public servants who feel the same way, but didnt want to let the libs run all over us. So they stepped forward.
Why couldnt a GOP minority stop obamacare? I mean SERIOUSLY - they have zero power to stop Democrat majority rule, the media is on Obama’s side, and you didnt know that? What do you expect, supermen with trained sharks with laser beams on their heads zapping the Dems?!? No, EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN OPPOSED OBAMACARE. They made good arguments, and the people responded and were and are on our side. COMPLAIN ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS REFUSAL TO LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE ... but complaining about the GOP is ‘concern troll’ BS, they have done well as an outnumbered minority and NOW is the time to support them in taking back the Congress.
Humans are fallible and the humans that make up the GOP are fallible too... if you can do better, pitch in and make it so. If you cant or wont, then your vanity is just that - vanity.

The GOP has failed the conservatives of our Republic. The McCain types need to be fired and replaced. If the GOP can’t do in Washington what they promise when they campaign, then are of no use! Why would people vote for them if they are not going to stop the Socialist agenda?
Think about it. What the hell has the GOP done about illegal immigration? When was the last time the GOP eliminated a single department in the Federal Government? What happened to being fiscal responsibility?
Oh yeah they talk a good game during the campaign and when in the minority in congress. Just looked at what happened when they were in the majority. Not jack $hit!

Yes, the GOP played the "parlor game" in DC and lost. We knew that. We knew they'd lose that game. They knew they'd lose that game. But that's the ONLY game they played. While the libs have amassed a huge war chest of paid activists, thugs, fraud, paid activism, and called on millions of astroturfers to give them MSM political cover, and on and on.. the GOP sat on their fat backsides and played the parlor game with a fixed outcome. What's the point in giving them a majority? They'll just whine and moan and be "bipartisan" so as to not make the MSM mad, while we race frantically over the cliff of destruction. So, while the GOP has become good at the parlor game of winks and nods in DC, what is needed is LEADERSHIP, one where they act such that people are actually inspired by them, instead of playing wet blanket firemen. Seriously, in the aftermath of Obamacare, how many GOP figures self flagellated about being called "the party of NO!"? Where's the video of the GOP rallying millions to DC and shutting down the place and then "negotiating" to get their way, or the government stays shut down? They should be SPONSORING the largest and most civil disobedient rallies the nation has ever seen, WE MUST PRESERVE THE UNION. We know the TEA Party people don't riot, don't break glass, hell, they don't even litter. Yes, the GOP gained enough spine to not vote with the Democrats on ONE issue. And immediately backslid and has myriad members supporting cap and trade and this stupid bailout crap and on and on. They learned NOTHING. As far as Christie goes... He can be judged when some history has occurred and we can see if he's just a big mouth with just enough spine to stare down a stupid reporter, or if he's willing to go the distance. The GOP is still seeking lefties for office, and is still content to play the game in DC without leading. It's as if they have eyes but cannot see, and are actually afraid of conservative ideals, which they run from anytime there's not a TEA Party rally outside their door, consisting of pitchforks and long knives. And while you insist that there are individual members of the party who ARE willing to do something, some little something, I've specifically been addressing the non leadership. And still am. You can literally see them dreaming up ways to triangulate to try to "have amnesty and oppose it too". OR, politics as usual. As to your question, could the GOP have stopped Obamacare? Absolutely. No question. It would have only required them having a tiny bit of courage and acting with some conviction, but they could do nothing but hide frantically in the dark and rush out with vote counts to placate the mobs outside the door. And immediately after, waffle about rescinding it. Talk about courage of your convictions. Not even a smidgeon to be seen.
