are are on the brink of a shellacking of the Democrats in the 2014 the elections. Naturally, they are talking about something that will dishearten and de-motivate their base and give away the win. They act like they want to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. They seem to be really trying to do that. So they start talking about Amnesty. Honestly, you’d think these guys would be smarter than that! Holy Crap!
This is a really stupid ploy. They will certainly not gain any votes, and they will only alienate their base. Honestly, what are they thinking? <shakes head>
In the past I have not been a big John Boehner critic. He has a very tough job. But it is really hard to ignore this stupidity. This wound is self-inflicted, and I therefore don’t have a lot of sympathy. Maybe he needs to go.
UPDATE: Honestly, I don’t know why they’re doing this. It seems mind-numbingly stupid. THIS is how a third party takes off. It’s an implosion of absolutely epic, cosmic proportions. It’s jaw-droppingly stupid. They have a gun to the head of a hostage, and the hostage is…THEM! You’ve got to be KIDDING! If they continue to screw this up, if they insist on this utterly assinine path and it is the cause of us losing the Senate, they are done. They are causing HUGE damage just by bringing it up. It has already started. The Republicans will go the way of the whigs if they’re not VERY careful. And they don’t have much time.
Already we are seeing damage from the infighting. It may be necessary to cleanse the inner vessel before we can take care of the outer one. I never thought I’d say this about Republicans. Until now I’ve been very critical of third party talk. It seemed nutso to me. I’m not sure I feel the same now. I really hope they come to their senses before it’s too late. And already it almost is. They don’t have a ton of time. I mean, if they are losing me, they are seriously hosed up.
UPDATE II: Maybe they just don’t want to win.Maybe they are content with getting crumbs from the master’s table.
