Ex-Florida GOP Head: the party is full of crazies, liars and 'whack-a-dos'

I’ll let him speak for himself (via Tampa Bay Times): In a wide-ranging deposition that spanned two days in late May, former Florida Republican Party chairman Jim Greer denounced some party officials as liars and “whack-a-do, right-wing crazies” as he described turmoil in the months before his resignation. He also spoke of party attempts at... Read more »

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs GOP: more like knobs, knobs, knobs

In yet another example of its historic deficit growing abilities, the GOP led House today (championed by Affordable Care Act pioneer and presumptive GOP presidential candidate Willard “Mitt” Romney) again wasted tax payer dollars in voting (for the 33rd time and to the tune of an estimated $50 million!) on repealing an act passed and sanctified by the Supreme...

UPHELD! Way To Go SCOTUS: the nation's ER's now may be saved!

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) today upheld the Heritage Foundation/Republican Party-inspired “individual mandate”, a mechanism that proposed that all Americans directly participate in and be held responsible for something truly of national importance and modeled on “Romneycare” during Willard Mitt’s tenure in Massachusetts. In considering this decision I do so mainly from a perspective of underwhelmed... Read more »

In Rev. Wright, Does Romney Camp Open HIS Religion as an Issue?

In recent days, a disturbing resurrection in the topic of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has occurred by the likes of firebrand Sean Hannity, the right-wing web-based ”News Max,” and others.  Now comes word that one of Romney’s “Super PAC” allies, the Ending Spending Action Fund led by the Chicago Cubs’ Joe Ricketts, may use the same line of attack.  Is...

How Romney-Ryan-Walker May Be Creating . . . Obama Republicans?

Gone are the days when the Republican Party might hope to win over a few conservative Democrats in the manner that Ronald Reagan was said to have in 1980 and 1984.  The Republican’s now need to be more concerned about an exodus of moderate Republicans to an increasingly perceived moderate, 3rd-way and centrist Democratic Party. In... Read more »

Their "Liberty," Our "Tyranny"

In the current wave of rhetorical bumper-sticker jargon and esoteric jibber-jabber, perhaps no concept reigns supreme over the hyperbolic as much as the mythical attachment to the notions of “liberty” and “freedom” and the delusion that there is but one definition for each term.  Both ideals as employed in much contemporary usage are offered up...

UK "Austerity" Has Ushered In a "Double-Dip." Will Republicans Bring the Same to US?

The UK economy has returned to recession, after shrinking by 0.2% in the first three months of 2012.  A Willard “Mitt” Romney/Paul Ryan budget has been forecast by many leading economists  to bring the same regression to the United States.  Full story . . .

Limbaugh, Ryan and the Republicans: what, then, is their case for allegiance?

I really would like to know what kind of “allegiance“ Republicans think the average person should pledge to the country in which they envision? A country so callous that it doesn’t concern itself with the health and welfare of its citizens, wants to erode the social safety net, degrade environmental protection and otherwise realize their Ayn Randian dystopia; reducing to...
