Women should sacrifice and relinquish control of their private parts for the greater good of.... money and jobs?
No.
This kind of thinking is barbaric. The women you speak of are not just single women. They are your mothers, your sisters, your daughters, your wives, your girlfriends.`
And it's why the Republicans lost.

How the GOP Got Stuck in the Past

The finger-pointing misses a bigger truth: Republicans have become estranged from modern America. Why fixating on the old glory days is bogging down the partyís future.

The black population in the south had moved north and to the west - it was called The Great Migration - 6 million African Americans moved out of the rural South to the Northeast, Midwest and West by the late 1960s.
Look it up if you don't believe me.
The Republicans had nothing to do with the southern Democrats in the south before the 1960s.
The southern bloc of Democrats, however, filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
You're such a fool, dumb carol, probably always have been and, most definitely, always will be. I am not. "

The civil rights movement, once a controversial left-wing fringe, has grown deeply embedded into the fabric of our national story. This is a salutary development, but a problematic one for conservatives, who are the direct political descendants of (and, in the case of some of the older members of the movement, the exact same people as) the strident opponents of the civil rights movement. It has thus become necessary for conservatives to craft an alternative story, one that absolves their own ideology of any guilt. The right has dutifully set itself to its task, circulating its convoluted version of history, honing it to the point where it can be repeated by any defensive College Republican in his dorm room. Kevin Williamsonís cover story in National Review is the latest version of what is rapidly congealing into conservatismís revisionist dogma.

The mainstream, and correct, history of the politics of civil rights is as follows. Southern white supremacy operated out of the Democratic Party beginning in the nineteenth century, but the party began attracting northern liberals, including African-Americans, into an ideologically cumbersome coalition. Over time the liberals prevailed, forcing the Democratic Party to support civil rights, and driving conservative (and especially southern) whites out, where they realigned with the Republican Party." Blow it out you're tired, lyin' ass as long as you choose, but I ain't buyin'.

He gives the orders and makes the directives then it's up to those with the orders to carry them out.Thats how it works as the president. I'm sorry if not seeing him waist deep in flood waters rescuing five year olds was what you expected sheesh.
Maybe he should start by seeing to it that the people who need food, water, gas, and shelter are actually geting it-the airports have been open for some time, why aren't supplies being flown to where they are needed? Then sfter that he be investigating why FEMA offices were "closed due to weather". He also could have raised money during one of his rallies.

He's probably molesting those daughters....way too much sex talk about "tucking" from Moochelle Obama and way too much time spent by Malia in daddy's bedroom and bathroom. This is not normal behavior for a 13 year old. She is very seductive around "daddy" and trying to win him over from Michelle. Notice the evil jealous look in Michelle's eyes! Look how it is usually Michelle who makes the phony overtures for pda's and Boy Barry looks like she'd go away! She is a two bagger for sure just like Mooching Marion!
Google the pictures of Sasha and Malia sitting by Daddy dressed like ghetto ho's and looking like they're 30 and 40 years old with the clothes, hair and jewelry. That's the way they roll where they come from!

The Tea Party Is Dead. Long Live the Tea Party.

Odds are Republicans won't get back from crazytown for a while. Will Dems take advantage?

The tea party has done its job, and for all practical purposes its hard-nosed, no-compromise ideology now controls the Republican Party in a way that neither the Birchers nor the Clinton conspiracy theorists ever did. It's no longer a wing of the Republican Party, it is the Republican Party.

So what's next? Having now lost two presidential elections in a row, conventional wisdom says Republicans have two choices. The first is to admit that tea partyism has failed. 2012 was its best chance for victory, and evolving demographics will only make hardcore conservatism less and less popular. As South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has put it, "We're not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term." So the party will need to moderate or die.
