"Republican has become synonymous with loser and extremists and obstructionists."<quoted text>A lot of these folks are in extreme defense mode after losing the election, because even just reading the term "Republican" has become synonymous with loser and extremists and obstructionists.
I think it's already too long post election to still be in denial and in a paranoiac state of being. On the other hand, with all of the unfavorable press from every mainstream publication about the degree and extent of bad policy, mathematically impossible policy, special interest policy, extremism and obstructionism being at the root of their loss, I can sympathize. Rather than attacking here, they should be reorganizing their efforts toward a more MODERATE Republican party of fiscal conservatism that might attract all kinds of folks who are totally turned off to the party right now. About the only way I see Republicans gaining ground is by pushing out the fringe elements who want to dictate to the rest of us their social agendas, their religious perspectives and their outright prejudices of divisiveness.
I'm not too encouraged by reading what is posted here that there's a prayer they'll get there anytime soon.
May be YOUR opinion, but definitely not a true statement. "Defense mode"? Again, your opinion. This thread is "The President Has Failed Us" and we are here to to comment on these failures. If you want only positive comments about Obama, you should create a thread "The President Has Succeeded".
You and others obviously have no problem with Obama's policies and the direction he is leading us. That is fine. I am happy for you. I and others do not agree.
You continuously point out the election is over and the majority of Americans chose Obama. I am very aware of that fact. It certainly was not a land slide as 49% of Americans did NOT choose Obama. Bottom line is he did win. I accepted his win, but I do not have to be silent regarding his continued failures. That is why I came to this specific thread.
