"We have not been contacted by the White House," Thomas J. Donohue, president of the chamber, told reporters at a press conference Nov. 13. "


Oh, you'll be contacted. Just don't be surprised when you hear Nelson Muntz on the other end of the line.

The trolling quality really diminished after the Republicans got their asses handed to them. Maybe there's just no money left to pay the shills right now?

Weaver95: so I think a lot of our local shills are stumbling around in shock and trying to wrap their heads around their losses. Any way you choose to look at this, the Republicans lost big. the ONLY thing that's good for the GOP is that they retained their majority in the House, but even there they lost ground. so they're trying to come to terms with a firm rejection by the electorate. I suspect that's what most of our GOP types here are doing - trying to figure out what it all means, how they lost and what they can do to get back in the game. they've retreated to stormfront.org, Freeperville and other 'safe' sites to lick their wounds and decide what to do next. once they figure out a new set of talking points they'll be back. first they'll send out scouts, then they'll send out organized patrols.


The GOP sounds a lot like The Brotherhood of Steel.

SineSwiper: The USCoC used to be pretty neutral and, while they might have been naturally right-leaning (being pro-business), they were like pre-Murdock WSJ. Hell, with a name like that, many people thought that it was an official branch of the government. That changed since at least the ACA debate and all of the pro-GOP commercials. Now, most people that matter know that they are simply an arm of the GOP.

It's a shame that the NRA doubled down on the derp with their endorsement, too. Especially considering that it was compatible to be members of both the ACLU and NRA. There's plenty of pro-gun Democrats that they alienated with that decision.


The NRA has been taken over by the likes of Bob Barr, Grover Norquist, and Ted Nugent. What in God's name is Grover Norquist doing on the NRA board? The NRA needs to stick to their guns, so to speak.

Aww, a useless supply-side "think tank" is getting cut out merely because they are nothing more than shouty right-wing shills and their "ideas" have no merit.

well, I think the GOP got rocked back on it's pins pretty badly by Romney's loss. look, all the GOP data said Romney was gonna win in a landslide. the rank and file really believed that Obama was done. the election was merely a formality. they already planned the victory celebration. But then Romney lost, and not only lost but Obama won in a landslide. the GOP couldn't even pretend to claim that Obama doesn't have a mandate. then a whole bunch of issues turned against the GOP ideology (more states legalized pot and gay marriage) and several key races ended in Democratic victories. Allen West even lost to a moderate Democrat.

I honestly don't know what else they can do but be obstructionists. They are so used to it and we are so used to it now that it seems like the only play in the GOP playbook.


What are you talking about? The GOP has an entire suite of legislative tools they can use:

Headso: "The president spent four years criticizing the business community," West said.

If you repeat republican talkingpoints/propaganda like they are actually true you should be fired from your job. It shows that you don't have a firm grasp on reality and someone that out of touch is a danger when making decisions.


Why? It's not like the guy is a non-partisan think tanker. He's a lobbyist. He wants businesses to send him money rather than spend money on healthcare on their employees. If the business owner is too stupid to realize this, then he's f*cked (as well as the rest of us).

And apparently they learned nothing as the derp is still strong with them.

FTFA: The chamber's place on the sidelines as of now shows Obama is "still in campaign mode," Jade West, senior vice president of government relations for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, said in an interview. She said she views the chamber's spending against Democrats as "a chicken- and-egg situation."

"The president spent four years criticizing the business community," West said. "Why would the chamber not try to put someone in office who doesn't hold such contempt for business?"


He's still in campaign mode! (and so are we with our derptasticness).
