oh yes, and Lady Liberty has ALL REASON to cover her face, likely flooded with tears, this particular one the article is about neither being the only one nor the greatest! I hope some smart head will emerge who knows the trick how to get rid of that sorry pile that's left of the former GOP. Their current attitude pretty much resembles the
Zionist's ideology of "taking the rest of you with us if we have to go", an extremely dangerous mindset!

Clearly, this is an anti-GOP article, yet, I had to smile when the author apparently slipped and wrote:the economy , which could slip back into a recession next year if the government, well, govern".
The author makes a comment about Obama's "alleged socialism"....What would you call a man who wants government to control 401Ks, and pension plans? I'd call him a socialist.
The article goes on to briefly bring up LaPierre's bizarre views on gun control- a speech the GOP would not even comment on; yet this author makes it sound like this is the Republican answer to gun control.
Finally, this author blames the GOP for taxes, gun control, and immigration reform. I think this author better re-examine the last 4 years of the Obama administration in terms of these areas. As he did not offer any reasons to blame the Republicans, possibly he thought better to stop typing.....how dare he bring up immigration reform and blame the Republicans?

Angelika: your last line was so bizarre, I have to ask you to explain it.

It's clear that most of the GOP has forgotten about those who elected them... their constituents... and what is best for them! They really are no longer a "normal" governing body...they seem to be shaking apart at the seams! What a sad state of affairs!

Carrie, do you perhaps have any explanation why the third submission of your story went through with C2? Is that their Xmas glitch or what? After you, Wild Thang came out with it and now Greg also followed suit,-strange!

of course it's blame the gop that's what obama has taught his followers to do. blame the gop because he is unfit to be president.
there are nuts on both parties but will the main stream media print anything about the lib nuts? of course not only the gop nuts.
the main stream media has been bought and paid for by the dems. we no longer have free press.

About time that mainstream pundits came out with this!

People all over the world have been laughing at the Republicans and feeling sympathetic toward normal Americans since Bush - the insanity since then among the GOP has been unparallelled,

----and the worse Republican is John Boehner who reminds me of a spoiled child who must have his way! He should be thinking logically. Won't it be worse for the middle class if he gets his way and takes much away from them? I think he wants them to live in the streets. Taxing the rich more won't cause hard times for them.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Dave Johnson. IMHO the GOP is well on its way to becoming a second class, or maybe a third class, political party. Read and noted.

I'll miss Boehner just because he is decent enough to nearly cry when he is doing something horrible and outrageous.

If Obama is a socialist, then the GOP are the American Taliban. You know the old saying...." with friends like that, who needs enemies"....

Not too long ago, I wrote, in a comment, that the GOP can not govern. It was not the first time I'd written it, nor do I want to take credit for the idea, as I read it elsewhere, some years ago: thety are so tied to their ideologies, whether it is the religious one, or the so avid support of the Plutocracy, that they can not take in, and act upon, a bigger picture. The insistence on no tax hike for the wealthy, not a return to the levels of taxation before their Saint Reagan cut their taxes, is so absolute it is virtually psychotic in its blinfness!

John Kenneth Galbraith, as a "Friend" of mine, here, has quoted, said "Thje modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superiormoral justification for selfishness." And, boys, and girls, that's all it is,, no matter how they dress it up in euphamisms, like the one promulgated by Saint Reagan, about "Trickle Down" economics. As the movie title said, it is about nothing bu t"Greed."

I just want to know why we still pay the republican House. They haven't done their jobs in 4 years. No one else in America who actually works for a living would continue to garner a pay check. Why do they?

Allan, i don't know what you're talking about. Do you?

No Government 401(k) Takeover
http://www.factcheck.org/2012/12/no-government-401k-takeover/

Q: Is the Obama administration attempting to eliminate private 401(k)s and IRAs and create a “national retirement system”?

A: No. Obama endorses a proposal that would require businesses without retirement plans to establish private IRAs for their employees and deposit a percentage of wages into the accounts. Employees could opt out.
