No help needed

By Mustang Bobby

House Speaker John Boehner is worried

"Given what we heard yesterday about the president's vision for his second term, it's pretty clear to me that he knows he can't do any of that as long as the House is controlled by Republicans," Boehner said in a speech Tuesday to The Ripon Society. "So we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the Republican Party.

"And let me just tell you, I do believe that is their goal — to just shove us into the dustbin of history."

Given that it was the Republicans' stated goal in 2010 to make Barack Obama a one-term president, it's only fair that he and the Democrats at least try to return the favor. But even if they don't, the GOP seems to have done a pretty good job of destroying themselves in the eyes of the average voter all by themselves.

The best thing President Obama could do is just leave them alone. Please proceed, Mr. Speaker.

  • It has taken nearly 50 years for the Republican Party to arrive at this point of space and time. Beginning with the Southern strategy in the mid-sixties they have have appealed to the baser instincts of the American voter. They have finally cornered the market on this xenophobic, intolerant voter bloc only to discover that a fairly significant and growing majority of Americans actually like their neighbors.

    They know they need to grow their base to include other voter blocs but are stumbling on an effective strategy to create a coalition of people who hate the "other" with some of those "others" that are hated.

    Who woulda thought?
