    …and you’ll lose what was once your base.

    Of course the media(which is about 90% liberal) wants everybody to be government-dependent, loony left voters.

    Another part of the rebranding process — unless, of course, that spells ‘chance’.

    Okay. What sort of clear-eyed admission will any Neo-Con Master of War have to make if he or she ever wants to be RE-considered as a political thinker? How ‘bout that Honest Men — as opposed to corporate raiders — would have pulled out of The Iraq War when it was clear there were NO weapons of mass destruction. WMD’s were what the military went in for; WMD’s provided the motive for war our voters supported.
    -
    When honest men are WRONG, they admit it get themselves RIGHT. Bush and the Cons SHOULD have turned around the tanks six weeks in; they should have called off the raids, apologized for a gross error and pulled OUT. They’d still have serviceable reputations now.
    -
    Saddam and the bloodiest of his aiders and abetters could have been pulled along, handed over to the international courts and faced war crimes trials. They’d have been convicted. Too bad the Corporate Raiders had THEIR way. The Raiders took a ton of money — ten times twenty tons of money — skimmed away their ‘share’ and charged everything on the American National Credit Card. And Dick Cheney says he’d do it all again, not CHANGE a think, Lisa. I personally cannot wait to vote against him and his Rush Glen Gold Fox Standard News ‘people’ again.

    The Republicans aren’t trying to figure out why they’re losing elections on a national level, they’re just trying to rephrase everything so it doesn’t sound as dumb as it did in ’12.

    The Republicans can Hope, but they can’t Change.

    Unfortunately, much like a tattoo, the change is only skin-deep. The Republicans will never again get my vote until they drop the idiots, the crazies and the irrational haters and start supporting sane candidates again.

    Nothing is fabricated, Conserve…
    I fully agree with the TrustedMechanic.
    As long as the so-called Republicans are owned by the wealthy, they will never change, and cannot change.

    It may be OK for you and I, but we cannot forget the 25 million unemployed….and why this is……
    A broken education system
    Pathetic communications
    Hatred, rather than tolerance/understanding/love.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    While I agree with your assessment of what people want, your vision is flawed. You have divided regular people along the lines of our idiot politicians and have fallen into a trap.

    First, how do you achieve the American Dream and what exactly does that entail? Yes it includes hard work. Who will give you get this job at which you will work hard? A democrat? A republican? NO it will be a fellow citizen politics be damned. Will that person be wealthy? Probably, and yes that person is living the dream. He owns a business, he employees others, he makes a product or provides a service to others, has a home that maybe he owns, owns transportation has a family yep living the dream. Can you do all that on a government safety net program?

    No, you should be railing against the banks and the fed right now. The fed is pushing money into the economy supposedly to supply funds for job creation. Right. The money is being used to boost the stock market and to further enrich the “investor” class. Not jobs. Money for nothing and your chicks….

    OH you can vilify the rest of us who think that perhaps a budget and spending less than you make is a good idea, but politics and political spending programs do not produce long term high paying jobs (well unless you are a politician). If they did then we would be a full employment today and every person would be living the dream.

    @David

    Considering Benson’s usual POV, she is blaming the “liberal” media for trying to tell the GOP what to do. I guess she thinks the GOP should just continue in their current path of ignoring and insulting minorities and women – see how far that would get them.

    Spending less is a good idea, but WHERE the cuts are made is important. Further increasing the military spending while cutting the safety net is a BAD idea. Those that must use the safety net spend the money they get which does go into the economy – money spent on the military increases the bottom line for military contractors. Money spent on infrastructure creates US jobs – those people spend the money also – again improving the REAL economy. Tax cuts – the GOP’s favorite idea, does NOT create jobs. Too many companies have outsourced / offshored their jobs or just cut their employee ranks to the bone. Part of why productivity is up is because people are in fear of losing their jobs to outsourcing so they are working longer and longer hours.
