    For a couple of reasons. Their base doesn't care about the economy. Most don't even understand "supply and demand".

    Worse, their records are awful.

    And they only have a single actual policy - cut taxes.

    It's why they have no plans. This will probably be the last election Republicans run on a single failed policy. Whether they win or lose.

    Look at what they are reduced to:

    Yawl

    Cheezy grits

    sluts

    let him die

    They can't run on the 2010 midterm GOP chant: "Jobs, jobs, jobs!" because their benefactors (read: money men) don't care about the economy, they are in the .0000001%.
    Their benefactors are buying continued influence and these assholes are selling it.

    I don't think Ron Paul is a whore like Flatulent Boy (Gingrich), MittBot and Medieval Man (Santorum). I really thing Ron Paul is being honest and he does have a platform for the economy which he introduced in his book, "End the Fed". I just can't stand Paul's domestic policies.

    The GOP's economic plan is to cut taxes and (supposedly) cut government spending.

    Cutting taxes increases the deficit. Cutting government spending puts more people out of work.

    Running on that while you're trying to run against the president's increased deficit and lack of job creation is a tough sell.

    No need to "run on the economy". The economy speaks for itself.

    I hope Newt gets out soon. He is an idiot. I thought i might be able to support him but once he started running with Romney misquotes and stupid crap about grits and Romney "not caring about the poor" and other BS i turned him off. He nothing but a political opportunist purely in it for himself only.

    They are.

    It's easy since Obama completely fucked it up.

    Wait till they are done beating the shit out of each other and a winner is declared.

    I think you will see the nom going after Barry big time on the economy and jobs.

    If it were the Dems in the nomination process you'd see the same thing.
