Duh.  Blaming Trump would be admitting they were wrong.  And they're horrible people who would never dream of being honest with themselves.

Is it just me or...is the demise of the Republican Party right around the corner and no one sees it?

On the one hand you have the Trumpheads who think Trump can do no wrong.  While that plays well, it's marginalizing them to the point where they can't be a political force, even within the GOP.
On the other hand you have the whole country turning on the Republicans for being absolute morons.
Meanwhile, Democrats are using the situation to their advantage and Republicans are in a minefield and won't take a risk to get out of it.

Dementia patient families sometimes go after each other for things due to the stress.

The demented person is useless. Eventually those around them blame each other for not providing the best supervision, not properly compensating for the disability, seemingly shifting the burden onto other family unfairly.  Etc.

Go to any Alzheimer's ward and watch the families go at each other because 'someone' forgot to make sure grammy has a line of sight to the toilet or else she takes a dump on the heirloom chair she loves.

This is our government.

"When Beohner [sic] cut a deal with Obama on the debt ceiling, conservatives tossed him. Trump cut one with Pelosi and it's Paul Ryan's fault? WTF?," tweeted conservative commentator Erick Erikson, referring to former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

*chuckle*

Senate Conservatives Fund President Ken Cuccinelli went a step further.
"[Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell must be replaced, the Senate leadership must be replaced, and the same goes for the House," he said following announcement of the Trump deal, a statement that was further endorsed by ForAmerica President David Bozell

Of course. When you allow zealots to control the religion, they punish not only the heretics and apostates, but also run the Inquisition and punish the insufficiently pious, too. Trumpers put their Pope a l'Orange in place, and now they're angry that the established clergy aren't following the decrees of their pope. So, those looking to curry favor with the zealous are among the first to cheer when the zealots start lining priests up against the wall.

It is simple most of these people weren't elected to govern. The were elected to stymie and blame Democrats. Now they are in a position that they have to govern and neither they nit thei voters can figure out how that works.

Yup.  They have no ability to work with anyone.  In order for their policy to work, they need everyone else to think exactly like they do

Nope.    It's pretty to think so, but there's no evidence for this.   The Republicans have been demonstrating their utter incompetence to legislate or lead since the 2010 elections.   They put up 18 candidates for President in 2015, each one more abhorrent than the last.   And the result is that they've got solid majorities in both houses of Congress, control over the executive branch, and they're stacking the judicial branch.   And it's not like people are getting smarter or more discriminatory about their choices of news sources.

Sadly, real damage is going to have to be done before people turn on their party.   As in some serious, major league farkup that can't be blamed on the Dems.    Something, unfortunately, like the 2008 market crash, or (increasingly likely) some military botchup of epic proportions.
 
2017-09-08 10:55:48 AM  
The only thing Trump voters ever cared about was being able to be mean to gays and minorities again. And they got that.

On the other issues, they're closer to Democrats than Republicans.

They want pretty much everything the left wing of the Democratic Party wants, just not for "those people."
 
2017-09-08 10:56:37 AM  
Considering Trump's approval rating has ticked up a percentage point since the beginning of the month (per 538), I wouldn't count on a Trump backlash anytime soon.
 
2017-09-08 10:56:56 AM  
I'm assuming they're mad at "Republican Congressional Leadership" as a whole, and their anger isn't directed towards their own representatives.

Don't worry they will just blame the other 533 or 534 people in Congress (depending on if their state has a senate election or not) that they couldn't vote for.

2017-09-08 10:58:05 AM  
The anger is because the GOP wants to conduct business as normal, coming up with stupid schemes that appeal to their base, knowing they won't pass congress, and then blaming the Democrats for it. Now that the Republicans control all branches the GOP is horrified that they'll have to actually pass all the things they've been claiming to want for eight years and keep sabotaging themselves to avoid it. The base they've been feeding however is growing impatient and angry since the Democrats are clearly not the obstacle to the changes they've been promised, the GOP establishment is.
 
2017-09-08 10:58:23 AM  
He's infallible to them.  I think it's been proven time and again.  It, literally, doesn't matter what he does.  His base will follow him.  If he starting farking babies, they'd send him theirs.

Gotta give him credit. Is better than even the Alaska Red Neck Poison Pill Plan McCain tried.
And it just might work.
He has done a fabulous job of farking the GOP agenda to date.

So I went to FreeRepublic yesterday to see their take:

I was shocked to see they were saying a similar thing. They were ok with Trump working with the anti-christ Pelosi and targeted their ire for congressional Republicans.

Also something crazy is they believe Democrats are the ones trying to get the debt cap raised and that Trump and Republicans are against it. Even though they are the ones in power and will look bad and they are the ones who tried to tie to Harvey funding to make it pass easier and to give them cover.
 
2017-09-08 11:04:01 AM  
I guess these people don't do regret. LOL

That would require having self-awareness, or, really, any awareness other than the minimal amount Trump voters are capable of.

They're stupid, is what I'm saying. Straight-up farking stupid.

You shouldn't. Trump will lull you into a sense of "ok things could be ok now" and then he'll return to normal. He is never to be trusted.

*sigh* How's the UK this time of year?
