Barack Obama, our next President

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.
The Chasm widens.

Good evening Bernard. I have a question (respectfully) for you.

Why do you think socialism is better for our future generations?

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.

Republican Campaign Committee Pushes Back Against Conservative Group

In a warning shot to outside conservative groups, the National Republican Senatorial Committee this week informed a prominent Republican advertising firm that it would not receive any contracts with the campaign committee because of its work with a group that targets incumbent Senate Republicans.

Even more striking, a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund, a group founded by Jim DeMint, then a South Carolina senator, that is trying to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, and some other incumbents up for re-election next year whom it finds insufficiently conservative.

“We’re not going to do business with people who profit off of attacking Republicans,” said Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for the committee.“Purity for profit is a disease that threatens the Republican Party.”

Remember when. Intoxicated Teabaggers ignored their Governors and now all republicans are demonized. After all who wants a leadership that has a “Tail That Wags Their Dogs?”
Republican Governors oppose the “Ideologues” of their party. Giving them stern warning not to pursue a shutdown of the government as it has been their custom to do so. Trying to block Obamacare by disrupting the financing of the Federal budget will backfire on them.
“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” said Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin !
Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota said “I’ve never felt that shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”
Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona agrees as do most all the republican governors.
Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi said “Many of the members of this party do not want to fund Obamacare, but what we have to do as governors who work with our legislators is realize the reality of being able to get something passed,”!
Senators Rand Paul {R }of Kentucky and Ted Cruz {R} of Texas two of the Tea Party disagree. Senator Tom Coburn {R} of Oklahoma believes the stop government ideology is doomed and will doom republicans come 2014.
Gov. Terry E. Branstad of Iowa, a Republican defines the art of negotiations and compromise is required and end all this callow bitter fighting of our extremist representatives.
New chairwoman of the National Governors Association, Ms. Fallen said “They need to buckle down, work hard, find consensus on things and certainly find ways of reducing our deficit,” said Ms. Fallin, who rejected the Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma and declined to set up a state health insurance marketplace.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the head of the Republican Governors Association said “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Mr. Jindal, deeming the prospect of a shutdown nothing more than “a false threat” and “scare tactics” from Mr. Obama’s administration.
LOL if that is not an excellent example of how the right wing PROJECTS their erroneous ideologues’ onto their opponent. Scare tactics! False threats! Its Obama’s fault! Callow does not do justice in describing Bobby’s abilities for originality and leadership.
Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware {D} said “People are getting very tired of politicians who appear to only want to shut things down and not build things up, Far be it from me to give them advice, but it can’t be helpful to them.”
Republicans just wanted to let their constants know that they no longer favor the fragrance and or taste of Tea as it is being served by their bitter ideologues’. Will the Tea Party sober up enough to comprehend the warning of the growing chasm that will be swallowing them up?
Republicans are just now realizing that there constituents are deeply in favor of Obamacare and now they seek how to back pedal without anybody noticing. LOL!
