I'm sorry Carol, but the Republican party as it stands today is on the self imploding model. Even Reagan's son says his father would not know this party of today. All this rant about Obama's record when infact the Republicans have blocked EVERY single piece of legislation that comes past its desk. With stupid $hit signing pledges with tea party about no new taxes and the same time block spending cuts. Would any rational business be operated this way and survive, yet this is how the Republicans operate these days. You know Reagan raised taxes 11 times he was in office yet this Republican icon has been painted some mythical figure by the likes of Fox. The point is between Fox news and the Tea party movement the conservatives have evolved into what I call America's Taliban.<quoted text>
Now we're buried up to our knees.
C'mon Homer. Where's the smart?
Trying to recapture the past yet it has long since passed them by so as a result say their prime mission is to bring down a president even if it brings down the country. You need to have a good hard look yourselves. There are good people still left in the Republican party like Alan Simpson who shows that common sense should prevail unfortunately he is in the minority now.
Just a sample of some of his quotes which should ring true.
Simpson told CNN's Fareed Zakaria that Republicans' rigid opposition to new tax revenues has hampered productivity and diminished the chances of reaching an agreement with Democrats on debt reduction. "You canít cut spending your way out of this hole," Simpson, who was appointed as co-chair of President Obama's Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform in 2010, said. "You canít grow your way out of this hole, and you canít tax your way out of this hole. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, we tell these people. This is madness."
Simpson continued: "If you want to be a purist, go somewhere on a mountaintop and praise the east or something. But if you want to be in politics, you learn to compromise. And you learn to compromise on the issue without compromising yourself. Show me a guy who wonít compromise and Iíll show you a guy with rock for brains."
