Best not to ask GOP fundraising legend Georgette Mosbacher about the state of her beloved party unless you want an earful. The co-chair of the RNC’s Finance Committee (and CEO of Borghese cosmetics), Mosbacher is “mad as hell” about the myriad ways the “brand has been tarnished”: the sorry state of the presidential primary process, the ongoing alienation of Latino voters, the “outrageous” Senate candidates that the party ran this cycle, the epic failure of the fiscal-cliff negotiations, and, most recently, the House’s dithering over disaster aid for the victims of superstorm Sandy.
“I’m angry!” fumes Mosbacher.“I’m angry about the stupid mistakes that were self-inflicted.” It’s this last part she finds the most enraging. Though she believes the party has “unfairly” been defined by its recent mistakes, she is very clear about where the ultimate blame lies:“We did it to ourselves.”
Mosbacher is, of course, not alone in her ire. Postelection, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a hastily assembled group of Republican leaders laboring to figure out where the party went wrong last cycle and how to get it back on track. So far, however, Mosbacher is unimpressed by their efforts.
“I have not seen an honest postmortem assessment yet,” she told me.“I have not seen anything that gives me any comfort right now.”
This is an unfortunate development for the GOP, because, as Mosbacher explained it to me this weekend:“I’m not writing any checks, and I’m not asking anyone else to write any checks until I hear something that makes sense to me.”
The root problem, as she sees it: the sorry state of the party’s leadership in Washington.
.....“There’s one thing they understand,” she says with the confidence of a woman who has played at the highest level of the game for many years.“They understand money. Politics is about money. Make no mistake. They’re going to have to listen.”
And not merely listen. Mosbacher warns,“They may listen and not act. But that will be risky.”

Asked and answered, even by yourself, nitwit!!
Has to do with Article 1 Section 7 of the US Constitution.
It's something you obviously haven't read, even as you complain about others not understanding the Constitution.
You're really dumb.
Now back to Cassius Clay.
What boxing website did you find that got you so fired up and in attack mode??
After I finish making you look stupid on that subject, we'll move n to your idiocy concerning Adam Smith.
You're in for a tough time, Dweeb.

Just 8% Now Say They Are Tea Party Members
Views of the Tea Party movement are at their lowest point ever, with voters for the first time evenly divided when asked to match the views of the average Tea Party member against those of the average member of Congress. Only eight percent (8%) now say they are members of the Tea Party, down from a high of 24% in April 2010 just after passage of the national health care law.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. Half (49%) of voters have an unfavorable view of the movement. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided.
predicted by who? every liberal in the country.

Carol is crazy.
Seems the election has made her crazier, if that's even possible.
She doesn't like to be reminded of what an economic bottom feeder she actually is.
If BillyO didn't stick his tounge in her ears every night, she might not be so much the idiot.
One thing's for certain. Hubby is that in name only for Carol. Her late nighters are ample proof of that.
She comes here for social contacts, which she doesn't get at home.

good news for Root Canals, Nickelback, Donald Trump!
Poll: Congress Less Popular Than Root Canals, Nickelback, Donald Trump
On the heels of an historically unpopular Congress, Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling found a sardonic way to illustrate just how low the public thinks of the governing body in a survey released Tuesday.
Among several items and individuals tested, the automated poll found that American voters have a higher opinion of root canals, Canadian rock band Nickelback, head lice, colonoscopies, Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan, France, real estate mogul Donald Trump and cockroaches than they do of Congress.
On the other hand, Congress, which registered a paltry favorability rating of 9 percent in the survey, is still more popular than telemarketers, ebola, North Korea, troubled actress Lindsey Lohan, communism, meth labs and disgraced former politician John Edwards.

The nice part is that you've been dead wrong on Obamacare from the day it was launched.
And the Supreme Court laughed at you niotwits as they approved the Constitutionality of it.
It will be a huge success, just as SS and Medicare are.
Hard as you will try to cut those programs, the American People will beat you like the rabid bi tch you are.
If you want proof, see election 2012. LOL
For more proof, see how Bush's second term was destroyed when he tried to change SS.
You're funny when angry. And lately, all you've been is angry!!
I love watching your ignorant rants!!
