Conservative Political and Social Issues
Forget the oft used analogies of the "Stupid Party" and "Evil Party." While the Republicans may still be stupid and the Democrats evil, it is increasingly clear that the Republicans are a bunch of wimps.In the past week, Democrats have said the Republicans want women to die and old people to starve. They've accused the GOP of hurting kids. Barack Obama himself has entered the fray. He says the GOP would turn the nation into a third world state. He says the Republicans want to hurt the elderly with their Medicare reforms. Nevermind that he is the champion of death panels.All the while, the Republicans keep talking about wanting to reach across the aisle. They are perfectly willing to go along with the Democrats in raising the debt ceiling. They are perfectly willing to help the Democrats cut only $353 billion from this year's deficit. They are perfectly willing to let Obama keep lobbing bombs at Tripoli for no apparent reason.The Republicans have gotten it in their head that if they just play nice and look leaderly, the nation will embrace them. Instead, the GOP is getting defined by the Democrats. They are getting pinned down by a media willing to push the Democrat talking points and their polling is correspondingly going down hill.John Boehner and Mitch McConnell don't seem to understand that we need fighters not lovers right now. The Republican Party has turned into the Party of Wimps. If they don't start throwing punches soon, they'll be undone and so will the nation.
Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
