    In other words, "Name some policies from the GOP leadership that has helped the Republican base".

    The only thing I could think of was "cut taxes". But if you don't have a job, that's not a lot of help and Republicans ran on "Jobs, jobs, jobs".

    So what has the leadership accomplished for the Republican base that the base can point to and say, "See"?

    It's OK to go all the way back to 2000.

    I think they extort large quantities of cash from Big Business, and launder it through unions into GOP campaign coffers.

    The key belief that they can live in a capitalist system and not pay their fair share of the freight for the havoc that system creates.

    I think the base is hoping that the right can stave off the left's desire to spend us into oblivion. Just a guess on my part though, deen'o

    That's it? What was the debt ceiling in 2000. What was it on the last day of Bush's last budget?

    Anything else?

    What is it now and what will it be? anything else?
    You asked a question about the base and I answered you....it's about spending money we no longer have. 40 cents of every dollar we take in goes to pay the interest, what was it under Bush?

    Same tactic that the Dems use. Lie your fucking ass off and rely on stupidity to do the rest.

    That's it? "Lie" and be "stupid"? And you support that?
