A prominent republican lobbyist and former ambassador to Belgium for the G.W. Bush administration stated “ Too many ideologues have come in. You don’t win by what they are doing”
Jeb Bush put this way.“Ronald Reagan and his own father would have a hard time fitting into the contemporary republican party.” Citing that an Orthodoxy ideology presently, has a strangle hold on the republican party.
Jeb Bush goes further to say; “ All too often we’re associated with being anti-everything. Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. Many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidates, even though they share our core beliefs, because those voters feel unloved, unwanted and unwelcome in our party.”

Its celebration time, come on. Everything is going to be alright. Celebration ! Republicans are stirring, distancing themselves from the toxic Tea extremist.
Bob Dole on Fox news was asked “Could people like Bob Dole even Ronald Reagan, make it in today’s republican party?” Bob replies “I doubt it. Reagan wouldn’t have made it. Certainly Nixon wouldn’t have made it- because he had ideas. Goes on to say “ They ought to put a sign on the Republican National Committee door that says CLOSED FOR REPAIRE !
As early as September 2011 Mike Lofgren ,staff member for both republican House and Senate Budget Committee of 16 years, wrote on the liberal website, TRUTH OUT.
“The republican party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological AuthoStandard and one of the original architects of the bomb-throwing right, that jumped ship 7 months ago:Rotarian parties of 20th century Europe.”
Editor of the Weekly Bill Kristol express his disenchantment with the conservative party. Considers them deep disarray. Bill is reminded of Eric Hoffer’s remark on the failing republican party,“Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.”
Fractures, rifts have been illuminated with the corrosive effects of the Tea’s fluid extreme erosions properties.

Obama’s empathy for our nation has been demonstrated numerous times. That’s why republicans have labeled him as Obamacare. Now he is going to gather up the Tea and cast it out unto the waters of oblivion with the traditionalist republicans help.
Fortunately there is hope and it is being demonstrated, more and more every day, with the moderate republicans and the intellectuals of the party that are distancing themselves from the dysfunctional “Ideologues” of their party. Obama has aided them with his brilliance. A Tea bulwark has fallen.
Obamacare drives a wedge, fracturing republican party. Phoenix Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer pulled off a major coup by distancing herself, along with a few staunch republican state senators, from their extremist elements within their party. Rallying the support by emphasizing “Moral and Monetarily Correct”. Stating “It’s pro-life, it’s saving lives, it is creating jobs, it is saving hospitals,” and “I don’t know how you can get any more conservative than that,”
Typical of the intoxicated Tea Party’s strategy. Derogatory remarks are let loose with no substance to any issue for debate. Going so far as to invoke some religious sniping by A.J LaFaro chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, comparing Jan Brewer to Judas! Libertarian blog post by Tyler S. Boyer on the “Freedom Works” site, refers to Jan as “An unfortunate display of ineptitude.” Derogatory continues to surface from the right wing extremist. Reagan once said” Republicans should not speak ill of one another” Something the extremist have ignored, as they have demonstrated on various issues, ignoring supporting their constituents for some personal ego political ploy. Ignoring the facts that voters agreed, in 1996 and in 2000, to extend Medicaid coverage to childless adults, one of the main beneficiaries of the Medicaid expansion.
Mr. Coughlin states “Ideologues have their agendas” Mr. Coughlin goes on to say “and the part of the party that’s taking issue with the governor right now is all made up of ideologues”!
Moderate republicans will be required to expand their platforms to educate their constituents of the fallacies of the zealot extremist policies. Focusing on the more intelligent groups within their spheres such as women and independents.
Bruce Merrill, political behaviorist senior research at Morrison Institute for Public Policy of the Arizona University states “how truly fractured the Republican Party in Arizona is.” expressly due to Obamacare.
“The real brilliance of Barack Obama when he made Medicaid an all-or-nothing proposition,” giving states no option but to cover individuals with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line if they were to qualify for federal reimbursement,“was that he pitted fiscally conservative Republicans against one another,” he said.
Governor Jan Brewer views it as merely bruised egos that will heal with time.“Nobody likes to lose, and that’s what happened”. AND this is but one example of many.
Tea will not be served…. Out of service…

The Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe.

Norman Ornstein and Tom Mann, scholars at the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution respectively, put it all in a book, for those with intellectual interest in politics. Title of the book is Its Even Worse Than It Looks”:” How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism”. They went further with an essay written for the Washington Post, titled “Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem.”
How far have the republicans sunk into the quagmire, you may wonder. Survey political strategist, lobbyist, pollsters and think tanks. Here is one; Chairman of Barbour Griffith & Rogers; Ed Rogers. Formerly the top aid to G.W. Bush and Reagan puts in simple terms.“The G.O.P. House has between 20 and 30 members who are ideological purists who think every issue and vote is black or white. Combine that with the members who fear a primary from the right, and you have maybe 60 votes that are hard to get. We have lost the art of governing in Washington. In the Congress no one is able to make and execute long-term plans.”
Tea nuts must go...

Time’s they are a changing Over a hundred republican donors have sent their voices to their senators to mull over during their August recesses. Demanding immigration reform and a constructive immigration bill is required. Yes even unto legalizing the 11 million illegal immigrants now in residence.
Carlos Gutierrez, founder for the republican’s super PAC ,voices the demand for all intelligent republican to take positive action on this immigration bill. Not surprisingly Karl Rove, Dan Quayle, Tom Stemberg,{Staples}, Frank VanderSloot {Melalecua inc} have FINALLY seen the light. We can give thanks to the immigrants in educating these individuals and many more of their colleagues. Rookies they may be in this new era of an intelligent political leadership role, that is now slowly coming to light, we may yet see this infant callow effort to a rational leadership, as a rebirth of the “Grand Old Party” being born. Cutting the umbilical cord to their insidious extremist ideologues. Infamous for there total collapse from rational leadership.
Intelligence dictates this “Strengthening of The Border Only” bill, that the naïve extremist embrace, as the all to do all for immigration, will be filed in the nearest trash respectable at hand. A new bill may come to FALL soon , when the republicans announce their epitome , of how illegal immigrants may find a path to legal status. Oh glorious days would that be. Will there be in time to have more intelligent rational leadership come to emerge and remove the stigma of the worst performing congress in our nations history. Do not know but stay tuned. We can only hope that not all republicans will succumb to the ever increasing chasm of their irrational dysfunctional leadership. Perhaps it was all that Tea that they drank? A Tea tainted with a fungi of ominous-onus’s.
