This is why the Republican party is in trouble.....


LINK
quote:

In the last week, three senior members of the Republican Party have told me that the House GOP is making a dire mistake to think voters will consider this “the president’s sequester.” Yes, the White House proposed the gimmick, but only as a way to avert a GOP-backed debt crisis, and the House Republican leadership supported sequestration. More broadly, there is no way to seriously reduce the U.S. debt without more revenue, which means raising taxes.
There is absolutely NO leadership in Washington. The R's in Washington are more concerned with winning the PR battle instead of winning on principle. Being a leader requires individuals to sometime make unpopular(not necessarily wrong) decisions. As much as the spineless R's piss me off the Dem's are even worse. They refuse to even admit there is a problem with government spending....how out of touch is that?

I wish they would not run from it or point ot the D's and say "it is their cut".

I wish they would stand proudly and say "this is finally some small cutting and needs to be the beginning of much larger ones to follow"

Politics (the art of power) has little to do with principle.

Good God this. Where have they been the last 10 years? Do you think anyone in the media is gonna back you up on this claim, GOP?

The system is beyond repair. It's basically impossible for anyone with an ounce of common sense to make it into Washington.

Cuts shrink the economy, BHP; throw people out of work AND would deny those same folk government subsidies.

Whatever politician or Party is party to that...is TOAST. They'll be ripped to shreds in the MSM by Obama and the Dems.

Keep the motor in that helicopter running; how far does it fly on a tank of gas? Costa Rico?

Here's the problem -- Odumbf*ck isn't proposing ANY cuts in spending. He wants MORE and MORE and MORE taxes so that he can spend twice the amount to buy off his campaign contributors and the leeches in our society so they'll keep voting Democrap.

So, more taxes isn't going to do anything to the debt -- IN FACT, it will only act to increase it.

Reagan disagrees, as do I, he also never won the PR battle, but he did what was right and enough people were cognizant of that to keep him in power, because principles work they just generally take time to prove out.

You're right - it has more to do with the SCUM in the media.

If we had a real media in this country, lying filth like Odumbf*ck would be the night manager at McDonalds.

This is all a powergrab and locking in a liberal one party system. I wonder what the endgame is. Anyone with half a brain, no matter if youre Lib or Cons, can't look at this and see how its sustainable.

Oh really? Then why has our economy been virtually stagnant in terms of wages since the 70s?

These are not the cuts that matter--those are in medicare and ss.

The main thing blocking the republicans from rational decision making is the myth that debt and deficits are hurting our economy now.

This could have a little to do with the push to send everyone to college resulting in a plethora of young, cheap labor as well as the number of baby boomers that have clogged the upper echelons of companies for the last 20 years or so.

I'm not saying thats all, but I see it all the time.

This is why our country is in trouble. Why the hell is it always democrats vs. republicans? They were elected to do the same damn job. The level of division is disgusting. Both parties actively work to tear the other down rather than building the country up.

The biggest problem is the mass media not telling the whole truth and keeping citizens uninformed of this maddness

Wrong. The biggest problem is no morals, no fear of or concern about God.

I agree with this statement but sooner or later the voters in this country have to invest enough to study the issues if they want true change. No One can assume that ANY media is objective.
