The GOP is certainly trying to re-cast themselves as Democrat-lite.

Joining hands with Democrats who want to take away our God given gun rights, preaching amnesty for illegals, burning the military to the ground, rewarding the takers and punishing the servers of this nation.....I do not see why the current Republican party should have my support at all.

Chris Shay’s is a Connecticut RINO that’s why he was bounced out of congress in the first place.

I wouldn’t give much credence to what he has to say.

I’ll take the NRA over the GOP any day. At least they have conviction.

While polls suggest more than half the country approves of the NRA, the aggressive approach by its outspoken vice president, Wayne LaPierre, has led to some criticism of the group — and claims by some Republicans that they could be hurt by association.

Like nobody has criticized the NRA in the past. Spare me.

I don't agree with everything the NRA has done - most notably its playing footsie with Dingy Harry Reid in his last election - but at least it fights, and fights hard. Unlike a certain nominal opposition party I could name.

Some are, but puh-leeze - you have fallen for The Hill’s trap hook, line and sinker. Any article that defines the GOP as Chris Schayes is just absurd.

GOPES LEARN NOTHING FROM 2012 LOSS

Expecting voters to know what is going on and relying on MSM to do so, and not confronting MSM’s blatant bias is just part of the reason for our 2012 great loss. While there are examples of fraud which may close up the gap. The gap is too big to blame the loss on fraud ...Expecting GOPES {Goverment Of the People Eite Snob(s)} to address media bias or Romney to call Obama a congenital liar or even point out that the fact and figures released by the White House were allways questionable is another. Let alone call him a “socialist”.is perhaps more than one could expect.. While that played a significant role that was not the major factor..

But the fault lies really in the messaging the Republican campaign came up with.

They violated the first principle, The basic mechanics of campaigning (without going into the sacrosanct”social issues “) which could be defended but are not gone into here using the standard dissmissive devices used by experienced campaign managers. Ignoring the “Bread and Butter Issues” which affect everyones pocketbook is the greatest violation when running a campaign..

Instead they choked on political correctness and tripped over past positions on global warming and Romneycare. Both of which were expanded into serious pocketbook issues created by the Obama regime and then mourned over by terming the “Republican” approach as lacking in “demographics” when the election post mortum was conducted.This was a phoney issue generated by opponents and driven by MSM. For these issues; energy and the AHCA Obamacare, which should have been confronting those regimes policies that reached into every “demographic” in the political play book .They are now paying the price . Applying the cliche “snatching defeat from the jaws of victory”.

Instead they allowed the opponent and the Mainlining Socialist Media which feeds the US main stream of communications both print and “optical” to set the agenda and they continue to do so...
One of the basics was to re-inforce what the tea partys set out to do in 2010. Defeat the AHCA known as Obamacare. If the Republicans articulated what was in that piece of legislation which we are now dealing with, there would never have been any second term.

Besides failing to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama past due 2013/14 Tax Increases. The impact of Obamas gagging energy resources (a socialist construct never branded as such) with policies requiring reliance on intermittent sources wind and solar and that resulted in massive failure and corruption (barely re-mentioned).,restricted use of drilling, and the effective banning use of coal for electrification , and the restrctions on fracking, with the resulting prices doubling or even trippling on everything and where a connection could be made to those on restricted incomes forcing a dependency of government never made.. This was a dream bread and butter issue for the GOP which reached into every ‘demographics’ pocketbook.

They could have even ridiculed accepting the Democrat definition of the hyphenated African-Hispanic -Americans . I personally don’t believe in hyphenated Americans. Our passports reads Americans. Not Afro-American, Asian-American, Hispanic-American, Gay-American, Honky-American, Rich -American,hyphenated marriage as in “gay/ opposite sex Marriage, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. . When I see an American who is black or an asian who happens to be of a different skin color that person is an American first and the skin color secondary. Much of that feeling was articluated in speech make by Reagan to CPAC in 1979.

Terms created by the democrat party who should, since they decided to remove any reference to God or The Creator at their 2012 convention remove any resemblance to the party of old .They should be considered hypenated. Hyphenated into Demo-Coms. Which every book thumping or simply devout God believing Christians,Jews and even Moslems should treat such as persons.spreading the asian flu o filled with leprosy..... With disgust !

Then there is the impact of Supreme Court Appointments.. 18,000 new IRS agents, or thousands of $20 per hour “Navigators” needed to explain Obamacare 62 pages of regulations and on and on. Let alone touch Benghazi and foreign policy even with a 10 foot pole but which was left to languish.

Lastly Then there is Obama’s personal extravagance and behavior refusing to visit Nashville after its disaster showing up at New Orleans after Mitt visited it. Even after the Christi thing if that was brought up it would have blunted the impact.

Romney, Rove, the RINOS and the GOPES could have loaded their cannons up with grape shot but decided instead to play games and throw darts..

What can be done ?

Any campaign theme should be based on this;

IT’S TIME TO GET THIS GOVERNMENT OUT

OUT OF OUR FACE AND OUR POCKET BOOK

People: this is a hit piece appearing in a journal of Washington-approved liberal opinion featuring a former liberal Republican representative who now works for an even more left-wing university. We've got to stop mistaking propaganda for news.

“...the aggressive approach by its outspoken vice president, Wayne LaPierre, has led to some criticism of the group — and claims by some Republicans that they could be hurt by association.”

The weasel words of lying American Nazi propagandists:

“some and claims.”

The entire story was made up based on no facts.

“In the end, I think members will do real calculation on whether this vote will cost them the election,” he said.

LMBO!!
Well, that's an interesting twist.
