    Oh, looky here, I'm feeling some schadenfreude .....

    Thanks for posting, interesting article ...

    The GOP may also be setting expectations here, building expectations for a huge Obama victory. Then, when he wins but in a closer election, they say, "well, we're not as bad off as we thought."

    This is textbook English gossip. This headline is usually reserved for Spice Girls coverage. This article looks like the High School Chronicle.

    When the GOP starts advocating "the need for balanced government" with a straight face, you know they're getting nervous.

    oh sure- NOW the republicans are worried about "balanced" government....

    They are gonna have to fuck off for a while... that is what it is going to take for the GOP to REALLY rethink the shits they have allowed themselves to become.

    First on the re-build the party agenda... get the fuck rid of Limbaugh and Orielly and Hannity.

    STOP the demonization of the left and try and stitch their base back into an idea of the this nation as a unified whole.


    Switch from diatribes of divisiveness to a COGENT discussion of POLICY, not personas.

    And recognize, accept and educate your base to the necessity of Government to MANAGE the nation- redistributing wealth in ways that benefit BOTH industry AND the citizenry.


    Second- Divorce yourself from the Theocratic fringe and start backing the ENTIRE Constitution. Start talking about warming and SOLUTIONS to it. About Social Security and SOLUTIONS to it, about Healthcare and infrastructure and a FUTURE economic base....


    Third-
    AGGRESSIVELY aid in the prosecution of ANY republican representative involved in corruption.

    Oh my god- I read the article all the way thru and at the end some nincompoop actually says that Sarah Palin is the "future" of the republican party... that future republicans will be vetted on where they stood on the Palin Nominaiton!?!


    This clinches it... the Republican core can't even tell when their own cynical ploys at manipulating the voters poison their chances.

    Does this guy actually IMAGINE that Palin wasn't the NAIL in McCain's coffin?
    The total irresponsibility of that choice?

    He actually thinks Palin will be the republican nominee in 2012!

    All I can say is, I sure HOPE so... Just imagine her having to actually withstand real press attention for an entire year.... real off the cuff questioning...

    wow... I mean, I always knew the repiblican party was lying to everybody and ruinning a big con... but the Republicans have really wandered off into the land of Self delusion, now.

    This is how the Whigs must have reacted as their party dissolved into the dustbin of history.

    Way to go you fucks over at the New American Century...

    Ahem, The Daily Telegraph is a right-wing pro-business anti-socialist and anti-european newspaper that backs McCain and Palin in it's editorials.

    However, it does not distort reality in it's news reporting.

    I'm seeing parallels with what happened to the Conservative Party in the UK.

    They became known as "the Nasty Party". Their campaigning was almost entirely negative and scaremongering and they went through a series of raving right-wing leaders in quick succession each of which reduced the party's support in the country even more than the previous one.

    Now they have tried to re-invent themselves as a kinder, more compassionate party. They've being doing well in opinion polls until recently but that's changing now that they have no ideas or solutions to deal with the financial crisis.

    I doubt a "Republican civil war" exists, however, I do agree the party should split... Neocons, Christies, Libertarians, Moderates, Liberal Republicans, Pure economic conservatives, Social conservatives, etc. with regrouping where overlap exist. Although, I totally advocate a multi-party system.

    +1 Once again, I am happy an OP used a credible source. :smile:

    That describes the modern day Republican Party perfectly. They are a nasty nasty sort. There is no hope in their platform. It's a dark dark sinister world and bogey mans around every corner ready to destroy 'real Americans'. One need only look at the hate fest they called their national convention. Listen to their pundents. All filled with anger, rage and hate. Their crowds screaming 'Kill him' referring to Senator Obama at campaign stops.
