The Republican Party is disintegrating in front of our eyes. The latest Gallup Poll has them leading in party identification in six states. Six! They're tied in two. That means they're trailing in 42 states!

They're down by 2 in Texas and Kansas, 12 in North Carolina and Virginia, and 16 in Kentucky. Virginia and Indiana went from "Competitive" to "Solidly Democratic" -- since 2008. If you thought 2008 was bad, these numbers would lead you to believe that 2010 might be even worse.

Now, I can't believe that this will hold up given historical precedent and the fact that the Republicans can be on the attack on every issue since they don't control any of the branches of government. They might be able to blame anything and everything that goes wrong on the Democrats and make some temporary gains in 2010 (though so far the numbers do not indicate that at all). But in the long run, these state by state numbers spell absolute disaster for the Republicans. The reckoning can't be far. I would guess it hits them -- and hits them hard -- by 2012.

In California, the Republican Party is 79% white. What's the big deal? The state is only 43% white. If you're basically a whites-only party in a state where whites are the minority, well, then you've got trouble. Unrecoverable, nearly permanent trouble.

But, of course, as you can see from the Gallup charts, it's not just in California. The Republicans are fighting a losing battle all over the country demographically. By losing the Hispanic as well as the black vote (let alone Jewish, Muslim and gay vote -- should I keep going?), they have put themselves in a hole they can't get out of.

But it's not just the demographics (and the Republicans stubborn unwillingness to adjust to these realities). They're also wrong on almost all of the issues. How long can you fight to make sure our health care system does not get reformed before people catch on to you? How long can you fight every program that helps the poor and the middle class and protects the rich before the majority of the country gets sick of you? How long before they realize that you do not have their best interests in mind?

Is there a popular program in America that the Republicans have not at some point opposed? Social Security? Medicare? Civil rights movement? Even, Cash for Clunkers. And now ironically they have become Cash for Clunkers. The corporations, the lobbyists and the rich keep pouring cash in to their campaign coffers, but increasingly all they're getting back are clunkers. Maybe it's time to trade them in.

The Texas GOP’s endorsement of these tactics joins remarks by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) that the “fear” and “anger” of Americans over health care reform present “real opportunities” for the Republican Party.

The Texas GOP isn’t alone in encouraging the mob protests, though. On a blog post titled “Here’s to Mob Rule,” Connecticut Republican chairman Chris Healy yesterday listed off the times and locations of several health care town halls. In the post he wrote that “one perrson’s [sic] mob is another person’s concerned’s citizen’s group” and remarked that if members of Congress “get upset because people are shouting at them, maybe they should listen.”

Missouri's Republican Rep. Akin and other conservative leaders have whipped up the right-wing base with a combination of lies and rage, and the results have bordered on dangerous. One Democratic lawmaker has received death threats because he supports health care reform. Another Democratic lawmaker was "physically assaulted." Far-right activists have registered their misguided, uninformed fury with everything from nooses to tombstones to signs with Nazi "SS" lettering.

Tampa Town Hall On Health Care Reform Disrupted By Violence

Police officers were called to calm down an unruly crowd outside a health care reform town hall meeting in downtown Tampa, Florida on Thursday evening, according to local news reports.

Angry protesters screamed, yelled and banged on windows as officers hurried to guard the entrances to the facility, where U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor was trying to discuss the various health care reform proposals being debated in Congress. One photojournalist said that a fistfight broke out inside the building, reports WTSP.

Many of the hundreds of protesters said that they had been inspired by a conservative activist group promoted by Fox News host Glenn Beck and some received emails from the county Republican party, according to the St. Petersburg Times.....

The Tampa Tribune reports that some protesters carried racist caricatures of President Obama and added details of more fights and scuffles.....

Generic Ballot: Republicans 43%, Democrats 38%
Tuesday, August 04, 2009
Support for Republican congressional candidates has risen to its highest level in recent years, giving the GOP a five-point lead over Democrats in the latest Congressional Ballot and stretching the out-of-power party's lead to six weeks in a row.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 43% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 38% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.
Democratic support is down two points from last week and is just one point above its lowest level measured over the past year. Support for Republican candidates is up one point from last week.

Anti-Reform Group Takes Credit For Helping Gin Up Town Hall Rallies

Conservatives for Patients’ Rights, the operation that’s running a national campaign against a public health care option, is now publicly taking credit for helping gin up the sometimes-rowdy outbursts targeting House Dems at town hall meetings around the country, raising questions about their

CPR is the group headed by controversial former hospitals exec Rick Scott that’s spending millions on ads attacking reform in all sorts of lurid ways, a campaign that’s being handled by the same P.R. mavens behind the Swift Boat Vets.

In response to my questions, a spokesman for the group confirmed that it has undertaken a concerted effort to get people out to the town hall meetings to protest reform. The spokesperson, Brian Burgess,
confirmed that CPR is emailing out “town hall alert” flyers, and schedules of town hall meetings, to its mailing list.

These efforts — combined with CPR’s effort to enlist Tea Party-ers, as reported yesterday by TPM — provide a glimpse into the ways anti-reform groups are trying to create a sense of public momentum in their favor.

CPR spokesman Burgess confirmed that the group had set up a list serv designed to reach out to “third party groups” involved in the health care fight, including the Tea Party activists. And in a statement emailed to me, Scott, who was ousted as a health-care exec amid a 1990s fraud probe, took credit for the town hall showings.

“We have invested a lot of time, energy and resources into educating Americans over the past several months about the dangers of government-run health care and I think we’re seeing some of the fruits of that campaign,” Scott said, though he claimed outrage was spontaneous.

Similarly, America’s Health Insurance Plans, or AHIP, the insurance industry group, has stationed employees in 30 states to track local town hall events.

The question is whether these uprisings are actually helpful to the anti-reform cause, or whether their raucus agitprop will work againt them. Dems have blasted out to reporters examples of protestors harrassing House Dems.

“The more you dig the more you learn that this is a carefully orchestrated effort by special interest lobbyists and the Republican Party, who are using fringe elements on the right to protect insurance company profits and defeat health care reform,” said House Dem leadership aide Doug Thornell. “The anger at these events looks very similar to what we saw at McCain/Palin rallies in the fall.”


Update: The White House attacks CPR for manufacturing anger.

The Last Gasp of the Angry White Man

What we're seeing in these angry town halls these days is the last gasp of the angry white man. He's not quite sure what he's angry about, but he knows he's angry. It's not the world he used to know. He gets the disquieting feeling that he doesn't rule the roost anymore. And it's driving him crazy.

One of the chants at the town hall events
was, "No national healthcare!" Okay, mission accomplished. No one has proposed such a thing. So, I guess they can go home now befuddled at what they were yelling about.

The reality is that what they have been manipulated into arguing against is a public option that would give them more choices, not less in health insurance. It wouldn't nationalize health insurance at all, let alone any part of the rest of the healthcare industry.

WATCH: Man Who Brought Assault Rifle To Obama Rally Was Part Of Radio Stunt

The man with the semi-automatic (referred to in interviews as "Chris," no last name) was spotted at the protest by CNN news cameras, in the middle of a Q&A. Today, his interviewer -- Ernest Hancock of conservative talk radio show Declare Your Independence With Ernest Hancock -- went on CNN and explained to host Rick Sanchez that he and Chris were actually in the middle of a radio broadcast. Hancock, also packing heat at the rally, had invited Chris to come down the protest with his rifle to be interviewed. The two men had known each other for two years, through their work for presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).

During the segment on CNN, Rick Sanchez said, "the more we look into this, the more it appears that it was really planned." Hancock concurred: "Oh, it's more planned than you think." In addition to scheduling the interview, Hancock had also informed the local police force.

As the interview continued, Rick Sanchez loudly exclaimed, "This was a publicity stunt!"

"Oh absolutely," Hancock responded.

Sanchez pushed on, "isn't there something terribly disingenuous about putting people on like that? And isn't there also something a little bit... dangerous about playing these kinda games--"

"Oh, it's not a game," Chris interjected.

"---with what I imagine is a loaded weapon," Sanchez continued.....

Chris is also featured in a YouTube video produced by the libertarian group Freedom's Phoenix. In this video he expounds further on his right to bear arms. He also explains that he is "absolutely totally against health care... health care in this way, in this manner, stealing it from people. I don't think that's appropriate."

'I can't disprove it.' ... You can't stir up that type of hatred ... and then say, 'Oh, I'm just a rodeo clown.'"

....."Only recently have I watched portions of [Beck's] television program, as well as interviews with him, and heard parts of his radio program. And what I’ve seen should worry the conservative movement," Wehner wrote in an article published Monday. "I say that because he seems to be more of a populist and libertarian than a conservative, more of a Perotista than a Reaganite. His interest in conspiracy theories is disquieting, as is his admiration for Ron Paul and his charges of American 'imperialism.'"

The Secret Service just called to thank me .... for my screen grab of the poll asking whether President Obama should be killed, and said without it, they wouldn't have been able to address the matter.Go here to read the original post.... they rely on people like us to help them out. Sounds awfully grassrootsy, doesn't it? Almost community service-like. Imagine that.
