Republican Auto-Demoralization

Posted on | January 29, 2013 | 14 Comments

It’s amazing how Obama and the Democrats have persuaded John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Marco Rubio to help them destroy the morale of the Republican Party grassroots at the very beginning the 2014 mid-term election cycle. Democrats know that John McCain’s push for “comprehensive immigration reform” (i.e., amnesty) in 2006 andf 2007 demoralized Republicans and alienated blue-collar conservatives from the GOP, thus helping Democrats win Congress in 2006 mid-terms and win the White House in 2008.

Now, by convincing Johyn McCain to re-launch the “compehensive” amnesty, Democrats have set the stage for a crushing victory over Republicans in November 2014 and, as an added bonus, have ruined Rubio’s future viability as a GOP presidential hopeful by associating the young Florida senator with this shabby betrayal of principles.

Furthermore, the McCain-Graham-Rubio triumverate have steered Republicans right into Obama’s carefully staged ambush. By insisting on legalizing the residency status of foreign same-sex partners, Obama presents the GOP with a lose-lose dilemma. Either (a) prove themselves to be “homophobes” willing to vote down the entire plan over the same-sex measures, or (b) further alienate working-class voters by extending citizenship rights to homosexual foreigners.

John McCain is the most valuable ally Democrats have in D.C.

    And to think he was the nominee of the GOP for President. Truly the stupid party.

    To be fair, John McCain and Lindsay Graham didn’t need much persuasion; they probably would have done it anyways.

    You would have thought the unabashed SCOTUS slapdown of McCain-Feingold would have taught Mister Bottom-of-his-class something, but apparently it has convinced him he has to accomplish one really stooooopid thing before he dies.

    Separated at Birth: Marco Rubio and…?

    This is getting depressing.

    I thought he’d already done that with his presidential campaign.

    Let’s not forget, McRINO has also been spewing Ted Kennedy’s name over the last couple days… as if that’s supposed to be a selling point. I truly believe the average asshole on the street could do a better job of running this country than these career asshats in DC.

    I’m sure that if a homeless person squatted in the White House that the Obamas would just open a bedroom for them. LOL

    McCain’s old and on the out-you-go track — soon to be spending more time going down on his daughter. Graham these days just gets up and lubes up for his days. As for Rubio…. if he’s dumb enough for this he’s too dumb for anything bigger than defeat. Tattoo “Mark Rube” on his buttocks and kick him to the curb.

    Like I said: If you want a picture of the future, imagine eleven million formerly illegal immigrants voting Democrat—forever.

    And John McCain wants this to happen.

    Stick a fork in GOP. It’s done.

    If Rubio sticks to what he said – no real enforcement, no support from him – he’ll be fine.

    Everything they’re doing is setting up the Republicans to lose big in 2014. I’m convinced they’re going to crash the dollar in late summer/early fall 2014 to seal the deal. They know Republicans will take the blame.

    I’m actually surprised the Republicans kept the House November 6th. I’d be will to bet the only reason they did is because a lot of people who voted for Obama didn’t bother voting down the ticket, or maybe the Republican happened to be first on the ballot or had high name recognition. I think there are far too many people out there now who just will not vote for any Republican for any reason. The attacks have worked.

    As far as Rubio’s chances for 2014? No way. He’s an evil Republican. That’s his biggest problem. But he has another problem that is going to sound insane to anyone who doesn’t understand the liberal mind.

    Marco Rubio looks…reptilian. He does. I said it was crazy and it is. But when you’re conditioned to see evil in someone you manage to find it. He looks like a reptile and he has this really bad habit of sticking his tongue in and out. I think he just needs some Blistex, but he does it constantly and it drives me nuts. If he has ambition to be president he better get some media consultant to work with him because he’s very articulate and really quick on his feet. But he’s got work on the lip licking thing. He looks like a snake.
