It’s a sign of the times…
Republicans Wisely Break with Grover Norquist
Any time CNN praises you for being wise, you know you've lost your way...
The GOP is Toast
Pandering to Latinos will not work, nor will becoming a wing of the Democrat Party. Standing their ground will only earn them opprobrium and blame. Democrats will get the credit and the GOP will get the blame no matter what. Obama's hosanna choir in the press will make sure of that. The Republicans are stuck, mired in a quicksand swamp of their own ideological perfidy and squishiness. It’s hard to talk about the Democrat welfare moochers when your own corporate and farm subsidy moochers also have their snouts in the trough.
Stand aside and give President Obama and the Democrats everything they want. Boehner can come out and announce that they don’t agree, but they will not stand in the way of the will of the people.
While they are at it, they can launch some fiery Marxist fusillades at Wall Street before descending from the stage. The Big Banksters threw their money Romney’s way this time, but they bet on Obama in 2008, so at best they are like vampire bats, untrainable, going after harmful pests as well as the livestock. Firing loud broadsides at them wouldn’t accomplish anything, but it would be entertaining and allow the depressed and over-stressed party to blow off a little steam.
Screw ‘em! 45% voted for Obama, and the majority of them were too stupid to convince their peers, so they get what they deserve. If the Dems want to go full-Krugman and slap them with a 90% tax rate, we should cheer them on. See: How the Party of Lincoln became the Party of Plutocrats
The American people voted for Obama’s policies, so the GOP should stand aside and let the Democrats deliver them. Let’s all recline in the arms of Uncle Sam and enjoy living the life of Julia.
We will hold a referendum in four years.
