Many Republicans feel that way already. They get thrown under the bus. Look at Rubio trying to get support for immigration reform and the old conservatives are either ignoring or trying to discredit him. The only reason they are against it is because 80% of the new citizens will start out poor Democrats. Bush was a complete failure and most of you know I'm a Republican.
I don't think there's a democrat on this forum (or any other for that matter) that has a problem with actual republicans. My issue is with the far right wing nuts and always has been. I probably identify closer to moderate republicans than I do with democrats, but the fact is, moderate republicans (at least political candidate-wise) just don't exist anymore...or if they do, they remain silent while the nuts take over their party.

Why would god be a threat to the party that wants to help the sick and the poor? Seems to me that Christianity would be more of a threat to the party that wants to make sure they don't get the help they need.
But then again, today's Christians aren't really Christians anyway, so it's pretty much a moot point.

That's exactly right. Today's Christians have mostly become a bunch of hypocritical bertha-better-than-yous. It gives the rest of us a bad name. I am a Christian Republican who donates to kids cancer research and doesn't think I have the right to tell you what decisions you can make with regard to sexuality and reproduction. It's a shame that there aren't more of us.

We just don't fit right now, because they still outnumber us and have more money. Soon they will all die off and the party will recover.

Sundog, meet Ludacris. He's the actual neo-con. Conservative with spending. Brutally honest. And truly doesn't give a shit about wieners and vaginas and God and Allah unless it involves him personally. If the GOP would listen to his reasonable views, democrats would lose and lose big.

Roo, everybody knows the GOP has no chance in 2016. Assuming Obama isn't outted as the 12th hijacker, the only republican candidate running will be little more than a sacrificial lamb. And you and your GOP rhetoric with the gun worship and anti-immigration and magic vaginas just turn more and more voters off everyday. You guys are still going in the wrong direction.

If Christie and Clinton run against each other for President in 2016, who do you think would win? Just curious.

I disagree with Bacon. Republicans will have a chance if Democrats go with Hilary, because her credibility is going to take a huge hit after the Benghazi thing.

Absolutely. Everyone has opinions and that's fine. They should act on their opinions if they feel strongly, but that doesn't mean that we all have to feel the same way and live our lives the same way.

I have several good friends who are republicans and are very much dismayed at the state of modern republicans. I hope you guys get your party back some day because I am a firm believer that our two party system works--when both parties are acting rationally. If you look at some of our best and most enduring legislation, it has come from when both parties work for the common good of the people they represent.

Personally speaking, that is going to be a tough one for me and one I hope doesn't happen. I like them both. If one or the other runs, I will vote for which ever one votes. If they both run, I will have a hell of a time deciding.

It is going to depend a lot on what they both have to say leading up to the election. Hillary was my pick in 2008, but she didn't get the nomination. I admire Christie for what seems to be his willingness to work both sides of the aisle. Going to be a tough one.

Often the best and most enduring legislation is the ones shot down and thrown into the trash. No, can be a fantastic word sometimes.

I disagree with that. If Bush's credibility didn't take a hit after it was revealed that he ignored warnings leading up to 9/11, I have serious doubts that Hillary's will take a hit over Benghazi.

I'm quite sure that republicans are hoping that Hillary's credibility will take a hit. I don't see that happening. Especially after the Clinton political machine goes into operation.

The republicans are being hurt by Benghazi, not Clinton. There's been three rounds of hearings, all coming with the pretext of "uncovering great scandal." They're 0-for-3. They look desperate, and it opens up the GOP to criticism from the vote that denied additional security funding. Idiots are the only people being swayed by Benghazi. And they're too stupid to remember it in 3 years anyway, assuming they can find their way to a voting booth.
