    Well..Republican Conservatives had a very clear plan:

    1. Step one - Re-invent the Republican party as the "Tea Party" that was infuriated with spending (Nevermind the man behind that curtain..who spend like crazy for 2 terms).
    2. Step two - Scare the heck out of seniors by pointing out that the Health Care act carved out 500 billion from their Medicare and that the new scary President was setting up Death Panels.
    3. Step Three - Paint the President as a foreign born, muslim, fascist communists (yeah..it makes no sense..but it worked.)
    4. Step Four - Have the Chamber of Congress and the RNC spend billions of dollars on local elections..and make everyone of them, national. Promise seniors protection for their medicare and young folks, Jobs.
    5. Step Five - Starve the Government of cash by extending the Bush tax cuts.
    6. Step Six - Once in power, lard the congress with nonsense bills that have no chance of passing..further constricting government.
    7. Step Seven - Shut down government.
    8. Step Eight - Launch multiple investigations against the President.
    9. Step Nine - Impeach and remove the President from power.
    10. Step Ten - Give power to corporate interests.
    11. Step Eleven - Crack open the Champange.

    We are almost at step 7...and it looks as if that is going to happen.

    Can't wait for the fireworks once the seniors that put them in power..stop getting their medicare and SSI checks.:lol:

    One flaw in the plan...GOPers didn't get the Senate.

    :tongue:
    As budget cuts loom, is government shutdown next?
    28 Feb.`13 WASHINGTON (AP) — With big, automatic budget cuts about to kick in, House Republicans are turning to mapping strategy for the next showdown just a month away, when a government shutdown instead of just a slowdown will be at stake.

    Wow... someone has an active imagination. Would be nice if you guys could keep your talking points straight. You can't decide whether the GOP created the Tea Party to reinvent themselves or that the GOP is in a civil war.

    The rest is stuff you guys are doing or just plain paranoid imaginations

    Yeah, that's the flaw of the plan. The fact that it's completely fictional isnt going to be a problem.
