The current Republican leadership has to be the dumbest to ever fill the post.
Yes - dumb as DEMs would define dumb.
Dumb to a DEM is anything that negatively affects the next election.
It could be that the GOP is actually trying to throw a life preserver to the unfortunate individuals whose insurance has been cancelled by the DEMs. In other words the GOP is trying to be statesmen - doing the right thing for the general good, regardless of the politics.
GOPers are just naturally more problem-solvers than DEMs, who are naturally feral - to hell with the consequences of their greedy grasp for power.
I wish the GOP could be good gutter fighters too, but they never have been.
And the MSM seems to think these are the natural roles for the two parties. GOP is held to an unrealistically high standard and are held liable for what other GOPers do. DEMs can act in any criminal fashion they want and it is "just politics" and no DEM is ever asked to judge the idiocy of another DEM.
Would love to see a bad-ass GOPer come along and clean up the streets.
