Interesting that the GOPe is prominent in the replies. Also interesting that the slams are one liners that re-enforce the GOP image as simply critics of everything. Boehner's reply was the closest to being informational.

I'd suggest that highlighting exactly what is wrong, and being dispassionate would be better received by the communist media. Like it or not, getting past the palace guard media is the goal.

This is why we need a strong, fearless GOP Chairman to come out in a news conference and blast this up one side and down the other.  That is how you display leadership and set the tone for this and it simply is not happening. 

Every single episode like this is a lost opportunity.  This is exactly how Bush earned low approval numbers, by refusing to fight back against even the most outrageous claims by the Left.

We're on the same page. This isn't a difficult thing to figure out, so we can conclude that the GOPe is one of the following:

- Stupid
- Paid off by backers to support the Obama agenda
- Supports the Obama agenda for the political power

And sadly, it can be a combination of those three things.

Just like TOS, this place is becoming nothing but a circular firing squad for conservatives.  Let's spend all our time trashing our own side, why don't we?

Talk about STUPID!!!!

Why not fire off a couple of rounds while he's at it?

The GOP has had a consistent message for the last four years:  Obamacare is a train wreck.  Every rep, Senator, and party hack has repeated that message, over and over and over.

You been living in a cave?

They do nothing, sink. You are okay with it, most of us are not.  Talk is cheap.

Yeah, because the GOPe never, ever trashes the Tea Party.

You're a moron.

No, it hasn't been a consistent message. It's been random at best. But, just for the sake of argument, assume that has been the message. Then why do idiots like Boehner take up amnesty when the obamacare train wreck is causing the administration to backpedal?

Now THAT is stupid, and something you seem to support.
