    That's it? You're reduced to posting some interview with a washed up GOP politiician that Obama cannot take seriously?
    Dude, you got issues.

    He's trying to make up for being irrelevant.

    True but it's also true that the Republican party has a lot of homophobes as well. The insistence of the party to keep leaving fiscal issues and take on social issues where government controls our bodies is what keeps preventing the Republicans from truly stemming the rising tide of Democratic Party Marxism.

    Why do the Republicans chafe when someone says something like this? The same reason they bitch and moan whenever someone offers an apology for the mis-deeds done by American policies. The right abhors accountability.

    If they ignore it, maybe it will just go away.

    Facts and apologies opens the door to culpability, and that's the last thing any Conservative wants to bear.

    Did anyone actually watch the video?

    Alan Simpson (R) is simply stating his opinion that Republicans with a SOCIALLY CONSERVATIVE agenda are weakening the party.

    Of course Chris Matthews drools all over himself since this is music to his ears.

    And I agree: Why are Republicans constantly bringing up abortion and queers: For Christssakes can they EVER move past these issues, or is does it give them an excuse to ignore being FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE?
