Republicans just never seem to get it. When I look at the title of thread after thread on this forum and others the main theme seems to be "what is the latest scandal we can stir up to assasinate Obama's character." They beat the "birther" issue to death for the first couple years and where did it go? Nowhere! The "Tea Party movement? In with a ROAR and out with a whimper! Nobody is paying attention to their so called "messages" anymore. It's all because the GOP never has any real substance to their platform other than resisting change and reform and offering America more of the same in the hopes that voters won't notice that the status quo Republicans defend is broken. Take the ACA for instance. Don't Republicans realize how transparent it is for them to draw a line in the sand (strictly along party lines) in opposition to Obama's initiative? Don't they think Americans KNOW that something is desperately WRONG with our health care system in the U.S. and something has to be done about it? Being the party of "NO" is what is going to sink the GOP in this election. Democrat strategy is already evolving to reflect this. Realizing this Republicans are already beginning the great flip-flop on repealing "Obamacare." That's what happens when you don't really STAND for anything.....when your entire platform consists of just saying what you think will get you elected. You have to keep changing your "message" as circumstances evolve. NYT: Cracks appear in GOP unity on health law repeal - politics - The New York Times - msnbc.com Now Republicans are realizing "uh-oh, since we don't have a better plan our opposition to this is going to look like just what it is....a bunch of corporate apologists in bed with insurance and AMA lobbyists simply keeping our promises for all those campaign contributions!" How can we oppose this when we're all RICH and WE have insurance????
