I particularly like the part where he calls on fellow Republicans to ignore intelligent people. At this point, I can only assume it's a secret Democratic plant because anything else seems like an absurd reality.

I like reading these stories alongside the ones about how the GOP is moderating and has a grand vision for expanding the party.

At some point they'll have to calculate that abandoning their current base is the only path forward, but they just aren't there yet.

That's cute. If the Left had even a prominent voice, much less a majority in anything, the right-wingers in both parties would make sure to quash it. See Kucinich, Dennis and the art of gerrymandering in Ohio if you don't believe me.

Senate, Presidency, AND nearly half-a-million more people voted for a Democratic member of the House than for a Republican one*, biatches.

*: True story... due to the current districting map the Repubs hold 55% of the seats, but got fewer votes than Dems.

It would help this country to have a fiscally conservative counter-balance to the Democratic party. The shame is that the Republicans have gone so off the deep end that they have lost all credibility.

Thinking about it, given the events of the Reagan/Bush years, it would also have helped to have a fiscally conservative counter-balance to the Republican party.

I also love this ongoing two-faced meltdown the right is having.

Why won't those jerkface stinking liberal moochers who want America to fail and only voted for the president because he's near and going to give the urbans free stuff just sit down and bargain with us in good faith on issues we've said we won't budge on!?. It's all their fault!

Until the President and Congress are willing to engage in honest reform of defense spending and Medicare, it's all just political masturbation. No matter what letter comes after their name.

You can disapprove it if you want, but the democrats have a plan: taxes. And it would work. To suggest that the two are the same is absurd.

You may not agree that the democrats' approach is the right approach, but at least it's an approach, as opposed to republicans who continually run on fiscal conservatism then actually add trillions to the deficit with stupid shiat like unfunded wars and a Medicare expansion that doesn't hold any of its costs in check. 

One side may not have the best idea, but the other side is actively lying about theirs.

I'm gonna pull a prediction out of my ass here:

Obama and Democratic-majority Senate battle with House Republicans over fiscal policy

Stock markets get nervous about impending automatic tax increases and loss of government cheese flowing to the economy mandated by sequestration.

Bond markets and rating agencies are all "These guys won't compromise to get shiat done. WTF is their problem?" Treasury yields rise, dollar falls, rating agency perhaps downgrades US debt again.

Wharrgarbl ensues. "0bama's socialism has wrecked our credit rating AGAIN!" "Republicans want to starve babies and seniors!"

/and when the talking heads and hucksters are urging people to cash out their 401(k)s to buy gold, I will be buying shares on the cheap
//worked great for me in 2008, what could possibly go wrong this time?

Ok. So when GOP members start attaching riders and other amendments to funnel money back to their constituents, why doesn't Obama break out his vetoing pen? See, the Republican base doesn't like the government until it starts sending THEM a check.

Uh....wasn't there some other 'tax holiday' that people want to expire?

"Conservatives and Republicans in the Senate and House should ignore these so-called "smart" people completely and utterly."

Yeah, cause ignoring smart people worked so well for you on election day.

Keep talking.

Oh, I'm completely with you on taxes. At the very least, allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire.

However, I recall watching a CSPAN panel discussion on the Pentagon's procurement process. Long story short, we could make significant cuts to defense spending by changing the process without any decrease in the amount of equipment produced. In addition, it is thought that this would also lead to BETTER equipment being produced. Funny, when you make a jet or machine gun in one place, instead of across ten different congressional districts, they tend to be constructed better and at a lower cost.

Similarly, there is no incentive under the current system to improve Medicare. As long as providers can charge cost + X%, with no price competition, health care costs will continue to rise, as will the cost of Medicare coverage.

So please note that I said these systems need to be reformed. Although I support taxes for these programs as well as other "entitlement" programs (if for no other reason than deficit reduction and paying for two wars), the system is rotten at its core, and more money won't fix that.

I believe some have moved on to anger, as you can see in some of the blogs linked on this thread that have now taken a tone of, "FINE, YOU STUPID POOPY VOTERS!!! SEE IF I CARE THAT YOU DUMB POOPY VOTERS MADE SUCH A DUMB, POOPY DECISION!!! YOU'LL BE SORRY!!!"
