The Faces of The Republican Party

Dick Cheney Karl Rove

What do all these leaders of the Republican Party have in common? They are all old, white men, past their prime and past their time.

Let’s not forget this one, either. After all, he is one of the champions of torture. Mr. Waterboard himself….

The Republican Party is the party of “No” and they have no new ideas. Just more of the same old repeated failures.

Here’s Glenn Greenwalds take on torture and politics.

UPDATE:  The Republican Party is having a “shrinkage problem”  Ha!


Why The Republican Party Won’t Survive

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.”

Charles Darwin

The Republicans lead by Dick Cheney (most unpopular VP since Spiro Agnew and draft dodger), Rush Limbaugh (drug addicted, pediphile draft dodger), Karl Rove (commited treason by exposing the name of a covert CIA Agent), and Newt Gingrich (kicked out of Congress for ethics violations) want us to return to the “old days”.  They believe that “deregulation” was beneficial to our democracy.  The problem with that is they have failed to look at what “deregulation” has done to our economy.  Every time banks were given free reign of the investors money, our economy has come close to complete failure.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  Dick, Rush, Karl and Newt are all insane.  They have failed to learn from the past and they are incapable of responding to change.  This is why the Republican party will not survive.

The Leader of the PAC

Looks like Rush “Porkulus” Limbaugh is the official leader of the Conservative Republicans.  This is a branch of the GOP that embraces wholeheartedly, the failed Reagan economic policies.  These members live in the past.  If the year was 1776, we would recognize them as “Loyalists“.

Tom Watson from the Huffington Post… has this to say:

If there’s any doubt that the GOP’s own Paulie Walnuts  is now firmly in command of the Party of Lincoln, the “breaking news” style coverage of Limbaugh’s bellow-cose rant dispelled the notion. CNN, for one, went wide – with the kind of uninterrupted live footage usually reserved for Presidents and Popes, followed by a panel of analysts to weigh and consider the import of the speech to this republic of ours. There were other dancers on the stage, to be sure – including Ward Connerly, Ann Coulter, Phyllis Schlafly and Karl Rove – but only Limbaugh’s hour-long ramble (he went over by 30 minutes) garnered opposition leader status. “As the movement searches for a front-and-center spokesman to provide inspiration and direction, Limbaugh’s refusal to tilt toward the center may place him out front in a Republican Party already suffering from a disappearing moderate wing,” wrote Tom Schaller in Salon.

It’s a sad state of affairs when the Republican Conservatives choose  a show biz, undereducated narcissist to lead them over the abyss.  Get out of their way.  Just bring the popcorn, sit back and watch them implode.

Rush Limbaugh is no Ben Franklin.  Rush lacks curiousity whereas Franklin was curious about everything.

Additional comment:

Porkulus is a phony word just like Limbaugh is a phony leader.  He is a coward that didn’t have the courage to serve our nation during the Vietnam war unlike his father who served in WWII.  The word porkulus is a proper description for someone like Rush.  Someone that only cares about himself and the big money that he makes while inciting people to hate Americans.  Another description for Rush would be anti-American or anti-Patriot.  He would have been known as a “Loyalist” which is the opposite of a Patriot.  No wonder he doesn’t know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.  A Loyalist would only understand loyalty to a king and in Rush’s case the king is Ronald Reagan.
