PirateKing: urbangirl: born_yesterday: FlashHarry: hilarious. they think that by simply "modifying the message" but not changing any of their policies they can win votes? do they really think the american public is that stupid?

wait, never mind.

They're synergizing a new paradigm.


+7.
Would be better if you could somehow work in "facilitating" and/or "utilize".

They're syncretizing the paradigmazition of the facilitation for utilization and prioritizing of core competencies through strategic rebranding of synergistic market participation.


Oh. My. Effin. God.
You're beautiful, man.  Beautiful.

ltdanman44: The survey gave Republicans in Congress an approval rating of 24 percent, compared to a 37 percent rating for Democrats.


How many of you reading this would still have a job if 76% or even 63% percent of your customers disapproved of your product?


Only if you are an elected official.

Weaver95: Soup4Bonnie: Alternate headline:  Cantor attempts to blow smoke up Nation's ass

the GOP could make a credible attempt at making key changes that would eventually lead to the nation starting to trust the Republican party again...but it's not going to happen over night, nor is the country going to trust the GOP easily ever again.  In fact, its possible that the Republicans have lost the next two generations of voters completely as a result of their asinine pro-rape and anti-middle class platforms.


one more round in 2014. have them ignore rove and run christine o'donnell or her clone. and todd akin maybe. then in 2016 the dems can get the presidency and the congress. if they don't get the house back in 2014 by the republicans using my fool proof plan.

Deneb81: I wonder how Freep and the rest if the Republican blog-world is responding to this 'softening' of the rhetoric.


Not well.

Whatever we do with these people who are not here legally, it MUST NOT include the right to vote. EVER.

You know how they are going to spin it. They are going to pass an immigration bill full of poison pills in the house and the dems in the senate wont touch it. Blame democrats. tada.

Wyalt Derp: "Over the next two years, the House (Republican) majority will pursue an agenda based on a shared vision of creating the conditions for health, happiness and prosperity* for more Americans and their families,"  "It is my hope that I can stand before you in two years and report back that our side, as well as the president's, found within us the ability to set differences aside**, to provide relief to so many millions of Americans who simply want their lives to work again,"

I hope you mean it, but actions speak louder than words.


* Tax cuts for the rich.

In fairness, if one of your customers is say PepsiCo, and the other dozen each are worth a few hundred thousand each, you listen to what PepsiCo says every time.
Besides, when customers disapprove, they stop being customers.  The GOP hasn't lost the support of 76% of the  money.  What the continued existence of the GOP in the face of those approval numbers highlights is the outsize influence of a few thousand 8-, 9- and 10-figure net worth assholes.

Eric Cantor only speaks on condition of immunity from prosecution.
His part-time job in congress is a diversion from his fulltime job of insider trading.   It's wonderful financially rewarding to make the markets move while betting which way the markets will move.

TDBoedy: inadvertently present subby? did they just spring out of the quantum foam?  do illegal immigrants simply wrinkle their noses and teleport themselves here with zero idea of the destination?


When you're six, you don't actually have much choice in where you move, legal or not.

Why are you libs always trying to humanize Others?  It's hard enough already to pass legislation aimed at keeping a segment of society down so they can be exploited for their cheap labor and organs.  The world is a much simpler place when everyone but me and mine is a nameless, faceless, vaguely sinister mass.

In other threads, I've commented on how I can tolerate an honest, up-front bigoted asshole - they're reprehensible scum, but you know where they stand. Cantor's on the other side of that fence, a mealy-mouthed, dissembling scumbag of a person, happy to use doublespeak to hide his disgust and hate if it'll score him political points or campaign money.

He's part of the whole "let's not change - let's just tell everyone we've changed" movement in the GOP - he's actually planning on making bank by believing that his constituents are just that stupid. Fark him. He's part of the problem.

Well if 60% did't care enough to do anything about it, I'd be fine. I wonder what the numbers are for likely voters.

Actually the problem is more on the lines of, while congress as a whole gets rated very poorly, even worse than usual, voter satisfaction with theirelected congress person is actually quite high.

Its a case of everyone is a moron except my guy.

poor children!  omg we must not deport them with their  adult parents who made the decisions for them.  No one is trying to jail the children...simply send them back to where they belong.  I.e.  Not here.  Saying "what about the children" is a red herring that distracts from the actual argument.  The system of legal immigration is broken and needs to be fixed in order to make it less expensive for immigrants, easier for guest workers to enter and relaxed quotas from every nation in the world.  That doesn't change the fact that most of the people here in contravention to our laws (illegally - not undocumented or some other nice word/phrase) are here knowing that they are here illegally.

"But Mr. Boedy...don't you care about the children?"

I feel bad that their parents have put them in this position and that their home countries are such pieces of crap that they feel the need to basically become refugees to flee the violence of the drug cartels and poverty.  I feel even worse for those imported illegally as part of organized crime to join the sex trade and other slavery oriented criminal enterprises.  However, my feelings are for the most part irrelevant.  Any child they have born here is not a citizen any more than someone travelling here on vacation that happens to have a child while here is a citizen.  They are citizens of their home country and are still existing in a status of illegality here.

It is a civil tort and not a crime.   That is why our remedies are reasonable for these kinds of violations assuming no actual crimes have been committed.
