Dudes and Dudettes…seems it’s never-ending with the circular firing squad from the so-called republican side of the aisle. These dolts have been, and still are, part of our major problems in the past up to this very day. There are plenty of others but I’ll just mention three of them in this post. One other item I want to mention…at the end of this post there will be words from Mark Levin who sums it up in a nutshell…especially when it comes to Karl Rove.
First up, here’s some words of wisdom from our fearless leader in the House. – This is via TH:
Speaker John Boehner said Thursday he was “confident” Republicans could agree to a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
Boehner (R-Ohio) made the comment in an interview with ABC News, released two days after President Obama’s decisive reelection victory over Mitt Romney.
Obama’s win was fueled by Hispanic voters, who made up a larger portion of the electorate than they did four years ago and voted overwhelmingly for Obama. The president won Latino voters by 44 points, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.
The defeat and those figures have triggered a round of soul-searching by Republicans.
Boehner offered optimism that his party could come to an agreement with Obama on immigration, a subject that has hurt the GOP with Hispanic voters.
“This issue has been around far too long,” Boehner said in the ABC interview. “A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself, others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all.”
Boehner says much more included in this video…if you can stomach it. ~
Next we have words of wisdom according to only her, that being Peggy Noonan. – This is via DC:
In an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, former Ronald Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan said Mitt Romney’s sound defeat last Tuesday actually provided the Republican Party with a “promising moment” to change and broaden its demographic appeal.
“A lot of Americans don’t like the Republican Party as they currently perceive it — its attitudes, its way of dealing with people. It seems to me this is a very promising moment for Republicans. … We have a lot of people who agree with conservative values, but it wasn’t reflected in the voting the other day. I think the party should take this opportunity to change itself in many ways. One of the things that must change is its public face and its attitude. And, yes, of course, it should move forward on immigration.”
Noonan said Election Day had been a “shock” to the Republican establishment.
“Yeah, well, one of the things I think I am seeing is that the Republican establishment in Washington and the establishments wherever they exist in the country — they took a shock,” Noonan said. “They are somewhat concussed. However, the base itself has been shocked and is somewhat concussed. And I think sometimes at moments of shock you can look at yourself and you can say there are ways I need change. So I actually consider this promising in some ways.”
“It can move forward things in a good way. I think the tea party is going to have to look at itself. It’s been so helpful to the Republican Party in the past. It saved it by not going third party in 2010, helping the Republicans sweep the House. But the tea party style of rage is not one that wins over converts and makes people lean towards them and say, ‘I want to listen to you.’ I think a friendly persuasion has to begin now from the Republican Party to people of the United States.”
Then there’s always the clueless wunderkind…Bill Kristol. – This is via DC:
Add Bill Kristol to the list of conservatives that think the Republican Party should reconsider its way forward after last week’s election loss.
On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” the Weekly Standard editor made that suggestion and said the GOP should even be open to raising taxes as part of that.
“The leadership in the Republican Party and the leadership in the conservative movement has to pull back, let people float new ideas,” Kristol said. “Let’s have a serious debate. Don’t scream and yell when one person says, ‘You know what? It won’t kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires.’ It really won’t, I don’t think.”
Kristol went on to argue that falling “on its sword” to defend millionaires isn’t exactly something that is politically worthwhile.
“I don’t really understand why Republicans don’t take Obama’s offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000 — make it $500,000, make it a million,” Kristol continued. “Really? The Republican Party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of them live in Hollywood?”
Now friends…late yesterday afternoon yours truly caught Mark Levin mincing no words about much of this…and he really laid into Karl Rove, which is well-deserved and I, for one, totally agree with him. What he said is too long to post here with all I’ve already posted above…so, please read and watch this.
Via my viewfinder in life the three dolts I mentioned above are part of problem…not the solution! They’re nothing but turncoat RINOs…always have been, always will be! – What say you?
