Pass the popcorn! It’s entertaining. They can’t even decide they have a problem let alone define what the problem might be. Personally, I hope their in-fighting continues until they look around and there are only 10 old fat white men who comprise the entire membership of the Republican Party. Those 10 can then blame one another for what happened!
“Poll: Most don’t know who speaks for GOP
Republicans, out of power and divided over how to get it back, are finding even the most basic questions hard to answer.
Here’s one: Who speaks for the GOP?
The question flummoxes most Americans, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, which is among the reasons for the party’s sagging state and uncertain direction.
A 52% majority of those surveyed couldn’t come up with a name when asked to specify “the main person” who speaks for Republicans today. Of those who could, the top response was radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh (13%), followed in order by former vice president Dick Cheney, Arizona Sen. John McCain and former House speaker Newt Gingrich. Former president George W. Bush ranked fifth, at 3%.
So the dominant faces of the Republican Party are all men, all white, all conservative and all old enough to join AARP, ranging in age from 58 (Limbaugh) to 72 (McCain).
USA TODAY asked whether Republicans, to succeed, should either do a better job arguing for conservative views or change positions on some issues to appeal to moderates — an ongoing debate within the party. Cheney sparked headlines last month when he said on CBS’ Face the Nation that he would rather have a GOP defined by the conservative Limbaugh than the moderate former secretary of State, Colin Powell.
A majority of those surveyed said the party should make changes to draw moderates. Among Republicans, however, nearly two-thirds said the party would be better off by holding a conservative line and advocating it more effectively — as Limbaugh advocates.”
Yeah, the GOP is pretty doggone sad these days. They’ve bet the house on Obama’s policies failing (heck they’ve bet the farm). If that doesn’t happen by 2012, I would not be surprised to see the party splinter into two parties by 2014, maybe three.
When it’s nice and cool here, like today, I like to grab a sandwich and go sit in my car to eat it. I usually fire up NPR and listen to a live local call-in show (public radio & television is amazing here; one of Tuesday’s guests was Terry McAuliffe). When that show features the monthly pet chatfest (like today) I mosey on over and listen to Limbaugh. That’s always entertaining in the way that rubbernecking a car wreck is entertaining.
I think Limbaugh is going to explode. I think he’s trying his damndest to push the FCC into suing him because that man is really pushing the envelope. He was never ever as hard on Clinton as he is on Obama, and he was incredibly unfair with Clinton. By 1pm today he had called Obama a liar, a coward, a half-black nobody parading as US president, plus a whole bunch of other names all with perilously tenuous holds on reality (at best).
Rush Limbaugh’s radio program is becoming very ugly. I can’t imagine the amount of hate his listeners must have for President Obama to sit through 3 straight hours of the sulfurous invective I heard today and call it fun.
GOP’s in very bad shape these days, no doubt about it. If these guys ever come into power again, it’ll be Katy bar the door when it comes to using government to drive off the competition. Based on the kind of red hot hatred Limbaugh expressed today, I don’t think “pogrom” would be an exaggeration.
I was thinking we could bring that Chinese guy over to push him off the ledge.
God help us if Limbaugh explodes. Since he is off the Oxy, the man has gained about 100#. He must be pushing four double oh.
God, and if he JUMPED?
Can you spell “C.R.A.T.E.R.?”
I wonder, if Rush jumped and nobody was around, would anyone hear him scream like a little girl?
Paul Krugman on “The Hate”
Scary stuff going on out there and all can be attributed to the Right-wingers.
I saw the Shepard Smith video and nearly puked. There are a helluva lot more nutcases out there than expected. It’s scary, friends. Really scary. But read Krugman. He says it best.
