    As the Repubs continue to flail at President Obama they continue to shed party members.

    Polls have shown that voters who identify as Repubs is at it's lowest mark in twenty five years.

    The Repub party is becoming a regional (southern) party made up almost exclusivly of older white males. Yes, of course there are others including women and people of color, but they are the exception to the rule.

    They may soon be known as the "Radical Right Wing Radio Republicans" as they have by default, made Rush Limbaugh their party leader.

    Limbaugh, Hannity, et al have no answers to America's problems as it was their policies that led to our current state of affairs.

    Republicans will continue to move toward obscurity untill they drop the vitriol, stop hurling invectives and dump their ridiculous policies which favor the rich and well connected.

    This is unfortunately true. I am a southern male, the issues that I hold the most important are generally considered republican ideals but alas, can't bring myself to be associated with a bunch of dumb ass, racist hicks. And that is what you have in the republican party, the party of the red south.

    Another party will emerge, sooner or later, to pick up the semi intelligent pieces that will no longer join these fools.

    It all cycles and will continue to do so. Both parties have announced eachother's impending doom forever. Did the Reps make a mess of things? You bet. Can they overcome the Left (as distinguished from just Democrat)-media-academic triad any time soon? Doubt it. Will The Prophet and the Left hand it back to them? That is usually how it goes - both ways.

    Repubs must acknoweldge their failures, but so far they are instead embracing their mistakes.

    As evidenced on this site they think that the same polical tricks that got them into office in the Eighties and Nineties will work again, but America is not buying it.

    Divide and conquer will not work now, most Americans are not going to get distracted by the phony issues of gay marriage, abortion, etc.

    People are losing their jobs and we understand that if we do nothing , then nothing will improve.

    Ya, what will get them reelected though is the Liberals Taxing us to death and Spending like drunken sailors. Then add in their attempts to deny us actual Rights promised us by the Constitution.

    Remind me again? A one trillion dollar deficit is bad, BUT 3 trillion more is good news?

    Debt can be good or bad, if one borrows to invest in ones future that is in general a good thing. But if one borrows so that rich folk can get tax cuts which is what happened under W then that would be a bad thing.
