GOP already lost the debt ceiling fight twice and Obama already won public opinion this time. The GOP has now picked a new place to draw their line in the sand. Now if the gov’t shuts down it will be because the Dems in the Senate didn’t pass a budget. Finally the Pubbies are learning how to use political jujitsu.
Maybe we were blessed with common sense and “street smarts” and can smell a rat. Obviously, these educated dummies can’t. I could just puke.
>I can’t believe how stupid the Repubs are. I thought these men and women were well educated.<
It’s not a matter of education with the GOPhers, it’s a matter of lack of spine.
There is a HUGE difference in being educated and having "balls."
Most current politicians are members of the METROSEXUAL club.
They check their gonads at the door.
Perhaps it is because the results "they" wish to achieve are not the same results that you and other Conservatives desire. Your question is based on the premise that the GOP seeks what is best for the continuation of this representative democracy.....that may be a false premise.
This is why conservatives are in trouble! Right now, there are too many freepers, conservatives who are actually holding on to some kind of farcical fantasy conservatives are going to suddenly rise to the top of the "republican" party, gain control and lead us away from this socialist nightmare which is upon us all.
It's a different world today than in the Reagan 80's. The conservative republican party is dead, gone and it ain't coming back!
“I can’t believe how stupid the Repubs are.”
Re-examine your premises. This is not stupidity. Or to repeat an oft used phrase, it’s not a bug...it’s a FEATURE.
The gop has only only marginally more interest in a balanced budget or reducing the deficit than the ‘rats do. Both parties benefit from spending to infinity or beyond. If you’re waiting for the gop to pull the plug, then you’ll be waiting for a long, long, long time.
We are all being "played" by the illusion that there is a substantive difference between the Dems and the GOP.
I can’t believe how stupids people are for thinking that Pubbies aren’t Leftists at heart. Go back and read the history on them.
Collectivism only benefits the rich and the poor. The rich are represented by the Pubbies and the poor, the Dems. No matter which side you vote for as a Conservative you lose. One day Americans will wake up and figure that out but not now.
Because they can. They caved. They don’t want to admit it even to themselves.
“You can fool some of the people some of the time, and most of the people most of the time. But you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” But on the other hand, you don’t need to, so long as you don’t fool yourself.
