The bottom line is that RNC members know something is terribly wrong. Some point out that chairman Reince Priebus — who is expected to be re-elected in an uncontested ballot Friday — cannot come before the committee and say, “We were out-spent” or “We couldn’t match the resources of the other side.” The party’s problem is more fundamental than that — simply put, Republicans have either a basic identity problem or an equally basic competence problem — and demands more fundamental answers.
Read the whole thing, as the RNC gathers in Charlotte for navel gazing, and, one hopes, repentance.
If anybody down there reads this post, please relay to the homies that Hispanic outreach is great. More solid get-out-the-vote efforts are fine. But they are peripheral to the ongoing collapse of our Republic into a failed state.
The GOP can’t out-spendthrift the Democrats, and has no business playing that game any more.
It’s also time to quit with the equestrian nice-nice, and answer the Democrat propaganda with firm, unflinching directness. Step into Twitter for smaller examples of telling these Lefties what’s what, while keeping it family friendly. It can be done, but it takes some thought to engage without veering into f-bomb territory. This GOP is about one Dole/McCain/Romney aristocratic milquetoast away from ceasing to function, as far as I can tell.
Speaker Boehner’s “No Budget No Pay” act is a step in the right direction.
Delivering remarks on the House floor today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) urged support for the No Budget, No Pay Act (H.R. 325) that will force Senate Democrats to finally pass a budget, which they have refused to do in almost four years. In his remarks, Speaker Boehner reiterated that the No Budget, No Pay Act is just a first step toward a long-term plan that balances the budget over the next 10 years, and addresses the fiscal crisis that threatens our economy and future generations.
Can you guys cut a little YouTube clip and explain why we can’t do that in five years? A sober little “No Speaker, No Cry” video would really help.
Balancing the budget over the next 10 years means that we save the future for our kids and our grandkids. It also means that we strengthen programs like Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid that can’t continue to exist in their current form without some kind of controls.
Fortunately, the sunrise is not dependent upon our Congress, or the future truly would be in jeopardy. How about a more long-term plan to privatize these vote-buying schemes? This would help the GOP not sound so much like The Other Democrats.
