For the far right, dreams die hard and delusions never end. As Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who represents a congressional GOP with unpopularity of 75 percent, prepares to summon former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with popularity above 60 percent, to testify, the overreach of House Republicans now threatens Republican control of the House. The triumph of the Tea Party within Republican politics is a gift to Democrats in 2014, as the disastrous vice presidential nomination of Sarah Palin in 2008 helped propelled Barack Obama to a two-term presidency.
In the latest poll I've seen about 2014, a generic poll by Washington Post/ABC, Democrats led Republicans by 48 percent to 40 percent a huge margin. Of course, polls will vary. But the idea of a House GOP that is stunningly unpopular running inquisitions against President Obama, whose popularity towers above the GOP, and Clinton, whose popularity towers above the GOP even more, is a political disaster in the making.
The prime directive for the Tea Party is tax breaks for the rich and tax breaks for themselves hardly a winning position in a nation that wants more equity and fairness for all. The Tea Party projects a politics and negativity, which is why it is so highly unpopular with voters. Palin represents a negativity and eccentricity and out-of-the-mainstream rightism, which is why she was such as disaster for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), why she left the governorship after half of one term and why she has held no public office in recent years.....

Then let it be destroyed.
America is toast.
My head hurts?
This is probably true unless some Republicans grow a big pair !!!!!!!!!!
Romney/Ryan got a million more votes than McCain/Palin. Is Paul Ryan more popular in the GOP than Sarah Palin?
Well look at McCain’s candidacy in the cold light of day five years later. A very old man with an unpleasant personality who isn’t even articulate and also had about him an air of psycho real or imagined. Palin probably gained him votes.
From Rasmussen Reports:
Monday, May 20, 2013
Republicans have edged ahead of Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending May 19.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican in their districts congressional race if the election were held today, while 39% would choose the Democrat instead. . .
I agree. The RINOlib-Republican Party is not for conservatives anymore. With idiots like McScream and McRomney as candidates and leaders of the party, what chance do we have? No, we are screwed. These RINOsliberals now run the party.
If the “tea party” is the end of the GOP, then it needed to end.
A party that can’t articulate what it stands for doesn’t stand for anything.
Well, the taxes paid to the Feds by the TEA Party "members" IS an ongoing gift to the 'rats, that's fur sure. Don't count on it in the long run though.
Nice try. They know Obama is in trouble and are trying to discourage weak and wimpy republicans (rinos) from going after their messiah.
Do ya think? It could explain the millions of votes missing from the Romney total in '12.
The GOP means nothing to me. The “moderates” are just rat-lite. And the rats just can’t let go of bashing Gov. Palin - my recollection was that after her speech at the convention in 08 the party was energized and polls were turning McLame - until McLame suspended his campaign to support the Bush stimulus, and until the media performed their hit on her. I do not doubt that she still scares the willies out of them.
It’s nice of them to try and help the GOP like this.
You’d think they’d be quite about this.
Like their use of the IRS to steal elections.
Or thier use of the DOJ to monitor Reporters.
