When in the world will the republicans quit eating their own? Time and again we’ve seen example after example of this over the years…I don’t know about all of you, but this gal has had her fill of this. When will they ever learn…or is that now a complete impossibility? Seems to me too many republicans are afraid of their own shadows when it comes to political correctness and the media…in the the long run they are defeating themselves by doing what they do time and again. You can be sure the democrats are pleased as punch about this, their mission has been accomplished!
I’m going to post two examples of what I’m talking about, both have happened recently. – See what you think.
First up we have this via Mediaite:
An official in the Virginia Republican Party, Bob FitzSimmonds, is garnering some attention for remarks he posted on Facebook. When President Barack Obama “goes to Hell,” he wrote, he’ll still be placing the blame on his predecessor, President George W. Bush.
FitzSimmonds’ post, published on Wednesday, read: “When Obama is 90 years old and he dies and goes to Hell, he is going to say ‘This is all Bush’s fault.’”
He currently serves as chief deputy clerk for Prince William Circuit Court and treasurer of the Virginia Republican Party’s State Central Committee — and is also a close ally of the state’s attorney general, and gubernatorial candidate, Ken Cuccinelli.
On Thursday, FitzSimmonds gave a comment to the Hampton Roads Pilot. In an email, he said, “My Facebook post was not about Obama going to Hell. It was about his obsession with blame shifting and I don’t really see anything inappropriate about it.”
Meanwhile, Cuccinelli distanced himself from the remark, via spokesman Noah Wall, who said, “Mr. FitzSimmonds does not speak for our campaign, and we don’t agree with his assessment.”
Virginia Democratic Party chairman Brian Moran also released a statement. The state GOP needs to condemn the remarks, he said, and FitzSimmonds needs to apologize:
“Taking to Facebook to muse on the death of the President of the United States and whether or not he will go to hell is well below the standard of conduct Virginians set for their public officials and political leaders.
“Mr. Fitzsimmonds should apologize and his close allies like Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Pat Mullins should condemn his inflammatory remarks immediately,” he added. “As leaders in Washington put the elections behind them and try to solve the enormous challenges we face as a country, this type of rhetoric raises serious questions about whether certain factions of the Republican party are capable of putting Virginia families ahead of ugly partisan rancor.”
What did this guy say that’s so terrible…my gosh, we’ve gone past the point of political correctness, I call the call for an apology and such as ‘Stuck on Stupid!’ How ’bout you?
Next up we have this…please tell me what part of what Romney said was wrong? – You can read this in full here.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Friday distanced himself from former presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s “gifts” remarks, making him the latest in a growing list of Republican leaders to do so.
“You can’t expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive,” said Gov. Christie when asked by the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” whether he agreed with Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), who was the first to push back against Romney’s comments.
“You have to talk about themes, policies that unite people. And play to their aspirations and their goals and their hopes for their family and their neighbors. And I always think this is scapegoating after elections. When you lose, you lost,” said the New Jersey governor.
Now here’s what Romney had to say…this is what all the brouhaha is about when it comes to some republicans that have distanced themselves from the comments, for the life of me I don’t understand why that is…seems to me Romney hit the nail on the head! Cradle to Grave comes to mind!
Romney during a conference call with top donors accused young voters, women, and minorities of voting for Barack Obama because he offered them “gifts.”
“It’s a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they’ll vote for you,” said Romney.
“What I would do if I were a Democrat running four years from now — I’d say dental care ought to be included in Obamacare,” Romney told donors,” he added.
What the president did is he gave them two things. One, he gave them a big gift on immigration with the DREAM Act amnesty program, which was obviously very, very popular with Hispanic voters, and then number two was Obamacare … For a home earning — let’s say $30,000 a year — free health care, which is worth about $10,000 a year, I mean it’s massive, it’s huge. So this — he did two very popular things for the Hispanic community.
When asked about these comment, Gov. Bobby Jindal said that they were absolutely wrong” and that “we have got to stop dividing American voters.”
Leftists keep fighting for their agenda…yet the GOP hides from it’s own shadow and constantly cave!
So friends…what do you think about all of this, will the republican party ever learn, or will things remain the same with what has become a marching band of the clueless…known as the GOP?
