They are going to implode. And as long as no one gets hurt, I am going to enjoy the hell out of it. They have been on a road to destruction for the last 40 years. They have sacrificed all their interest in this country for power and greed. Greed has indeed, been good for them. They have told half-truths and whole truths and have happily taken this country for a ride. And since they destroyed the banking system by repealing the Glass-Steagall Act.
And ever since have done nothing except lower the regulations on the banking industry. And they learned nothing after the bottom fell out. And they were the strongest supporters of no strings attached to the bailouts of the financial wiz-kids that got us into the mess.(And I'm not even going to talk about the constitutional violations and the torture and the lying us into war.)
Now they are coming right out and saying they want to destroy Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. And then give another 10% tax break for the wealthiest 2%. Another one. On top of the one the President was blackmailed into agreeing in December.
So, yeah, I'm going to enjoy watching them capitulate to the racists in their heart and soul and try to win the Presidency or feeling the wrath of the extremists and disavowing The Crazy. Something I hadn't realized until today is that their propaganda media arm, faux, can't stop indulging the them. Adam Serwer did think of it though, much to my delight. :)
This is a problem of Republicans’ own creation, and it’s one that illustrates what is likely to be one of the more odder elements of the 2012 presidential race — the distinction between what helps the GOP win elections, and what helps Fox get ratings.
