About Those Republicans

Here is a statement.  A quiz will follow:

“I was trying to think if ever in my life, I could remember any major political party being so irrelevant. I have never seen it. I have never seen a major political party simply occupy placeholders, as the Republican party has been doing. There has not been any serious opposition…against what’s happening in this country. The Republicans have done everything they can to try to make everyone like them and what they’ve ended up doing is creating one of the greatest political disasters I’ve ever seen in my lifetime…I was pondering if I could ever remember…a time when a political party just made a decision not to exist, for all intents and purposes.”

Here is the quiz. 

This statement was made by:

A.  That Black guy from Kenya

B.  Nancy Pelosi

C.  Rush Limbaugh

The answer is C.

Disaster was just narrowly averted.   The remarkable unprecedented threat of default gained Republicans nothing and  the shut down cost this country billions.

    Well, I’m not in any way knowledgeable about things political, but my Mom always said, “If it don’t look good, don’t stick it on the front porch.” I do believe, I think I rest my case.

    love,
    me. (& Robert to probably follow)

  2. I want to see the entire Republican party self destruct on live television; Hell, sell tickets, I’ll pay to see this sadly watered down relic of a once proud party hurtle itself towards that footnote in history that it deserves to be. Perhaps then True Independents, or even Socialists like Bernie Sanders can best be heard out on their ideas.

    Yes; we all know that the GOP stood to lose health insurance lobbyist bribe monies if Obama Cares continued to be law. Does it stand to reason then that their main, true opposition to abortion is due to the reduction of future health care profits for health insurance companies?

    Life is valuable indeed.

      I’ll buy a ticket!

      It is tragic to see what the GOP has become.

      Personally I have long been a big Bernie Sanders fan.

      Gore Vidal had a handle on the current crop of “conservatives” as far as I am concerned:

  3. Too fun! You know it’s getting serious if Peter King is turning on his own party! The man hit the nail on the head. It shows some real Republicans are still left in the arena. https://scontent-b-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/q71/s720x720/1381878_247407888741671_570124036_n.jpg
