CURL: The Grand Old Party is about to go ‘Boom!’
The Washington Times ^ | August 25, 2013 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 08/25/2013 6:01:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, the Republican Party will explode. When the smoke clears, there’ll be four (4!) new parties.

First, there will still be the Republican Party, sort of, but it will change its name to the GOPPPP (Grand Old Party of Perennial Pathetic Putzes). The new name, though, won’t change the fact that the party has failed to win a majority of America’s voters in five of the past six elections or that it keep running candidates even its own members don’t like!

It’s top contenders? Sen. Marco Rubio; Rep. Paul Ryan; Gov. Rick Perry; maybe that guy who governs Wisconsin. You know, the polished politicos who say all the right things to get Republicans to like them but who then go on to get slaughtered in the general election. Those guys.

Then, there’ll be a new supercombo-hybrid party joining the old GOP with the Democratic Party. No, not Republicrat — Demoblican. In this new abomination, there aren’t even Republicans-in-Name-Only — there aren’t even Republicans! There are just the truly enlightened public servants, here to serve us because they — and they alone — have been given The Gift from on high.....

Is there anyone in the media who won't bash Palin? This guy is not only with this newspaper, but he's also said to be Drudge's editor. Does he not know the story behind the resignation?

“Meanwhile, out of the ashes, rising like a phoenix, will be former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, ruler of (you guessed it) the Phoenix Party. She will rally her millions of minions with a wave of her tawny tan hand, and her powerful ShePAC will haul in $100 million in nine seconds. But then, even before New Hampshire or Iowa, the slog that is a presidential campaign will hit her and she’ll remember she’d rather be poolside in Phoenix (or more precisely, Scottsdale). And remember, one thing the former governor does really well is quit.”

Grr. :D

Palin 2016.

I stopped reading here. Gov. Walker is one of the rare GOP politicians who takes conservative actions. And he doesn't get a lot of national coverage to present his point of view either.

Scott Walker supports Amnesty.

I cannot support him if he runs for President.

what is funny is that the guys they say get slaughtered in the general election, have won all their general elections, and ‘the wisconsin guy’ won a massive recall effort against him.

Yes, that is indeed a deal killer.

Of course. Now he's editor for Drudge. And Drudge was an avid Romney supporter, doing everything he could to knock out the more conservative candidates in the primary contest--especially Rick Santorum.

Rand Paul is better than Sarah Palin? I don't think so. The acorn didn't fall as far from the Ron Paul tree as some people hoped.

Which is why I and lots of other Freepers deleted his bookmark from our computers, and have never been back.

No.

He doesn't.

Don't let the media pick your candidates. If you want to see how the media spun that Walker supports amnesty, so as to discredit Walker with conservatives, see the following:

Hey Kidd - I heard what he said from the horse's mouth. He said he supports "a path to citizenship" (AMNESTY).

I don't care how great a job he has done in WI. If he runs for POTUS, I'm staying home. I will not support a pro-amnesty Republican.
