I refuse to get sucked into the ridiculous circus that is our election process this far out from the actual election. That doesn’t mean I don’t keep up with important developments, but really, there haven’t been any. Republican X said something stupid at a
debate Party commercial? Why, it’s as if they are pandering to people’s fears or something! No surprise.
But I am amazed at how strong the Republicans feel their brand is; that it can withstand a constant barrage of stupid and still remain solid. Seriously, school lunches? Is this the kind of “fraud and waste” of government money that has your collective panties in a bunch?
I also want to know in which of your meetings it was decided to go after Social Security, at a time when millions of Baby Boomers are about to retire? Too many older workers are dealing with aging parents and jobless kids, all the while wondering if their years of work and sacrifice will result in their own safety net being yanked away when they are most vulnerable. It’s a bold strategy. Did I say bold? I meant stupid.
I’m betting that at some point, you will realize that vote suppression and redistricting will only carry you so far. Then what? Once you have alienated the poor, the elderly, the unionized, people of color, and gay Americans, you had better make sure you get every other vote out there. Because you’ll never, ever get them back.
But I thought the idea of invading Mexico was spot on. Good luck with that!
If you don’t like Romney, you had better pick Huntsman. He’s qualified, he’s sane, and he has the best chance at unseating President Obama, which is the only thing most Republicans care about.
